  • hollow rhetoric
  • unwise
  • moveable
  • untimely
  • unenforced red lines
  • weak
  • unclear
  • naive

That is an excellent summation and is accomplished in something close to a sound bite.

If the GOP could transform Cantor’s arrogant personality and just leverage his mouthpiece, they might do well at election time.

The trouble is that this same mouthpiece has also bashed people on Social Security and in need of jobs. He is a contradiction.

“American foreign policy should not be guided by hollow rhetoric, unwise or moveable timelines, and unenforced red lines,” said Majority Leader Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va.) at the Virginia Military Institute.”
