RTD: 'Follow him' ... in times like these, pragmatic leadership of Eric Cantor is needed

Eric Cantor at his 2012 Republican Roundup.

While the tea partiers and Libertarians are planning an "Impeach Obama" march to D.C. on Flag Day, June 14, U.S. House of Representatives Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA 7th CD) and other pragmatic conservative Republican leaders doing the work of governing, listening and talking with their colleagues -- Republicans and  Democrats.

Wednesday's Richmond Times-Dispatch offered a little advice in their editorial for those tea party-Libertarian activists who keep pushing to the extreme right:
Eric Cantor (R-7th) understands that negativism is not enough. The House majority leader is promoting issues of consequence to families. The House has passed his legislation to make it easier for workers to take time off to attend to family matters. He proposes to direct certain provisions of Obamacare to more productive endeavors. Cantor does not give the administration a pass on questions with ethical implications; he has criticized what needs to be criticized. He also remembers that the citizenry expects real-world results from Congress.

Conservatives inside Congress and outside the marble halls ought to follow his example. And for heaven’s sake, may they stop drooling as they anticipate impeachment?
