    I review a lot of their online postings, and everyone seems to rule him out completely in a coup against Boehner.  Did he fail some tea bag test?

      That's why he's majority leader.  Fortunately for us he can't get the majority of his caucus to vote for him for speaker.

    •  they just don't like him or trust him (0+ / 0-)

      Speaker is in part a popularity contest and Cantor isn't well liked.  He's OK as a partisan spokesman, so Majority Leader is a better spot for him.
