I believe the game that is being played:
(Congress) If the people demand a change in speaker, fine. We'll give them a choice, a choice between Boehner and Cantor (Same as Boehner)
Excluding Ron Paul, did the american people have a real conservative running for president? NO!!
(Establishment) - We will give you a choice between Romney, Gingrich, Perry or Santorum...Which ever poison you chose...YOU DIE!
The reality is Eric Cantor is no better or worse than John Boehner, in my humble opinion..
