Cantor’s emphasis on “as conservatives,” “conservative solutions,” and “conservative cause” reminds me of the saying, “If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.”
The GOP establishment could take that hammer and build a monument to
their folly with such blind allegiance to their self-importance as so-called representatives of conservative stances and values.
Cantor’s defeat speech reflects the heady refusal of the establishment to recognize they have failed in their big boy mission. They just don't get that they need more than a hammer to restore the credibility and trust they have so effectively destroyed.
