Eric Cantor is a coward and a liar.
Yesterday, Cantor canceled a public appearance at the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Business because he found out that there would be protesters there. Cantor claims he was promised a private audience. UPenn says the speech was always open to the public and points to the fact that every other speech in the series was public.
Cantor's speech was supposed to address income inequality and while he was too craven to appear to deliver the speech, his office did release the text of the speech. What is Cantor's approach to "solving" income inequality? People should stop criticizing the wealthy, Cantor says.
Virginia has produced seven presidents and countless other statesman. It is difficult to imagine a true Virginian behaving in such a cowardly fashion. Eric Cantor is an embarrassment to Virginia.
