House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) Predicted Mitt Romney will win Virginia


This morning on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” House Majority Leader Eric Cantor stated that Mitt Romney would win Virginia by a larger margin than many of the polls are predicting. Cantor went on to say that Obama has provided no answers to end the near 8% unemployment and if Americans are happy with meager job growth, high unemployment and more of the same, Barack is their man.

“… do think the point is Mitt Romney has demonstrated the ability of building jobs, of making it so that we can have more investment, more economic activity, in America. he has a demonstrated track record and has provided an actual plan, whereas all you’re getting from the president in these closing days of his campaign is more negativity, more attacks, and i just think that, again, Americans are looking to see how they can make their lives work again. Barack Obama is not providing any answers, and if you like the way things are now with nearly 8% unemployment, that’s what you’re going to get if you re-elect the president.”

From The Hill:

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) predicted Mitt Romney will win in Virginia on Tuesday — and win by a bigger margin than deadlocked polls have shown.

Cantor also said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that former Sen. George Allen (R-Va.) will beat former Gov. Tim Kaine (D-Va.) in the state’s Senate race, which has seen Allen trailing in the polls.

“On the ground in Virginia there’s a lot of enthusiasm for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan,” Cantor said. “We’re going to win this state, and I think we’re going to win a lot bigger [than polls have shown].”

It is probably safe to say, which ever presidential candidate wins Virginia will most likely provide coattails for the Senate race between  former Sen. George Allen (R-VA) and former Gov. Tim Kaine (D-VA).

UPDATE I: Hmm, this is interesting, people walked out on Obama after Clinton had talked in Virginia. Looks like many Democrats with Clinton was getting a third term, rather than an Obama second one.

      Clinton was probably laughing at this action. Obama is so inept that he needs “Bubba” to help him get a crowd.

      BHO (Benghazi Hussein Obama) never really got
      a grip on his job description. Now he’s losing his
      grip on the electorate as well. Our military would
      also like to see a ‘Commander in Chief’ changeout
      to someone they can trust to not leave them behind
      for political reasons.

      Ol’ Bubba Clinton is as FOS as a Christmas goose.

      He’s a renewable gas resource. The fun – it never stops! They will be able to tell when he passes when his jaws stop moving.
