Is Eric Cantor making his move on Boehner?


Has Eric Cantor chosen his moment to plunge his dagger into John Boehner's back?
Cantor told CNN's Deirdre Walsh flatly, "I do not support the bill," and said no decisions have been made on how to proceed.

Rep. Tim Huelskamp (R-Kan.) told the National Review's Robert Costa that there are "real divisions" between Boehner and Cantor, and that Cantor was vociferous in his opposition, with the upcoming leadership elections hanging over the meeting. He said that conservatives were heartened to see Cantor take on Boehner in front of the entire conference.
John Boehner is at his most vulnerable. The fiscal cliff deal hangs upon the ability of the House GOP to round up enough votes to pass the deal negotiated in the Senate. Now is the perfect moment for Cantor to obstruct and bring down the Speaker of the House.
