Probably why he lost also, people wanted a congressman and not a majority leader - just proves my point though, money does not buy elections.

Boehner,, if one wants to call him "establishment," has shown me no indication of interest in talking with Pres,. Obama!
Okay, in relation to the Teaclowns Boehner is Mr. Establishment, but in regard to being a functioning member of a governing body, with responsibility to actually govern, he is a joke, needs to refund all of his recent pay, for nonfeasance!
Cantor, was/is, an ass regardless of where he winds up next, probably as a lobbyist/whore.

Yes, Agent Orange is a fine one to talk about leadership - he takes his paycheck and makes negative comments and ???? And what? I see him as a political wanna-be has-been. Meanwhile, Obama does not have to worry about a re-election - he owes the GOP not a thing.

Boehner is bad for all of America. Vote all republicans and tea baggers out of office in every state at every opportunity. I think the really crazy R's & T's are getting on the ballots in America and we all need to watch this closely and vote against them.

Noted. Although this article seems to portray a lot of gloom-and-doom for Dems in the upcoming election, I'm not so sure it's really going to turn out that way. Yes, Cantor seems to have been "primary-ed" by the further-rightwing. Articles I've read state that people in his district were sick of his bowing & scraping to Wall Street. So, if a decent Progressive runs against him in the General election, perhaps there's a chance the GOP will lose it. That could hold true for many other elections around the U.S. At least, I'm hoping so!

Can the gridlock in Congress get any more gridlockier?

The problem with Cantor losing is that it fires up the TP, gets the uber-conservatives and Bible thumper extremists energy to do this in other states. That could spell the gloom-and-doom fortold in the article. The Democrats are holding in most places...for now...but not in all places.

Obama strengthened this problem by creating bi-partisian committes, but never followed them through: gun control, the environment are just two. He never developed a commitment to alternative energy, nor has he created an immigration bill. These too could have gone to committee.
