Eric Cantor attacks real Americans as 'mobs' in big win for Occupy Wall Street

If you are an American unhappy with big bailouts, huge Wall Street bonuses, mortgage scandals and skyrocketing bank fees by bailed-out banks, Republican House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) is attacking you for being part of a mob! He even offers this attack at a Faith and Values conference, though I do not remember Jesus preaching in favor of big bank fees against jobless workers, small businesses, hurting consumers or poor Americans.

I guess Cantor didn't like my recent column, "Occupying Wall Street." I guess he is really upset that Americans are rallying in force to end the ripoffs that Americans are demanding should end.

Perhaps Cantor is panicking. Perhaps he is doing this to raise big money for his brand-new super-PAC to promote his national ambitions. Perhaps Cantor is well-aware that the House Republican majority is in very big trouble as Americans become angrier by the hour.

Dear Mr. Cantor, let’s keep faith and values out of this unless we agree, with Jesus, that the poor are blessed, that the hungry should be fed, that the needy should be clothed and that the ill should be cured.

Cantor confused the mobs giving big money at his fundraisers with the real Americans who want the abuses to end, and are rallying from sea to shining sea.

I feel Cantor's pain. These are tough times for Republican incumbents in the House whose popularity is far lower than President Obama's, and who make apologies for abuses while insulting red, white and blue Americans.

Cantor should apologize to every American with a credit card or debit card; to small businesses; to those who've los their jobs ...

Aw shucks, to save time, Cantor should apologize to the American people as a whole!
