“Yes I’ve seen the news feeds, but are we sure the video is real? Looks an awful like the end of parts of ‘Volcano’ or ‘Firestorm,’ said Cantor. “No I’m not kidding. We're not even sure if Americans landed on the moon and for the political points the President could get from a quick fly over in Colorado are enormous.”
When confronted with the radio logs of firefighting and emergency services calls Cantor did not back away from his comments.
“Am I saying that there are no fires at all in Colorado, I’m sure there are, the west burns every summer, but this is awfully convenient because of Mr. Romney’s statement we have enough firemen and this again being a swing state,” added the congressman. “Until I have time to see this for myself, which I may not be able to given my other priorities, I will not believe this isn’t a created catastrophe for political credit and points.”
Cantor added that because of the terrible Supreme Court decision on the Affordable Health Care act, known as “Obamacare” and the need to repeal it during this congressional session he won’t be able to visit Colorado until his annual trip to Vail during the Christmas Recess.
