Obama calls GOP and Cantor's bluff
Eric Cantor thought that if he walked off the job it would somehow embarrass President Obama. In point of fact it has drawn the spotlight down with laser-like focus on the Republican Party's obstructionism. If the economy collapses because of Cantor's obstruction Americans aren't going to blame Barack Obama or congressional Democrats.
In today's press conference Barack Obama made brilliant use of the bully pulpit for calling out the Republican Party for being AWOL from debt ceiling talks. Cantor's shameful stunt just makes it that much clearer that he is unfit to sit in Congress, let alone pretend to be a leader.
