    The day Cantor told the press conference he'd resign his House Majority Leader office (the day after his election defeat) I posted in "It'll Be Ryan, McCarthy, Sessions or Hensarling":

    the new House Majority Leader will be picked from the pool of Republican representatives attending that core leadership meeting:


    Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI)

    Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX),
    Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX)

    Those are the House masters of today's Republican Party.

    That short list held the only people running to represent the Republican majority in the only government chamber they (directly) control. It also held the people who convened at the very start of Obama's presidency to oppose him, and to harm the rest of us.

    They are nothing else. They are nothing but enemies of America.
