No Time For You!!!
Republican leader and member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Eric Cantor, turned down an invitation to attend the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. Where was Eric Cantor?
When House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) declined to speak at the March on Washington 50th anniversary rally Wednesday, he was choosing instead to meet with a North Dakota oil and gas lobby group, The Washington Post reports.
According to the Grand Forks Herald, Cantor met with North Dakota Petroleum Council members in Watford City, toured oil drilling sites and spoke with leaders of the energy industry in Williston on Wednesday....
Eric Cantor just isn't that into the people that support the ideals of Dr. King and the March on Washington.
• Stephanie Miller had Michael Tomasky of The Daily Beast on her radio program today. Tomasky talked about the far right's plan to try to impeach President Barack Obama. As Tomasky noted, the right has no evidence or reason to bring impeachment charges against President Obama. I suspect that the reason the far right wants to start impeachment proceedings is based on their racism, hatred, and ignorance. Take a look at those on the right and you'll notice the lack of diversity on their side. The mostly white far right is upset that Obama was elected and that soon whites will be in the minority.
