Your WTF Moment - Farm Bill Edition

Eric Cantor seems to think it is the minority party (the Democrats) that are to blame for the Farm Bill not passing. Seems to me that there is something wrong with this analysis don't you?

"I'm extremely disappointed that Nancy Pelosi and Democratic leadership have at the last minute chosen to derail years of bipartisan work on the Farm Bill and related reforms. This bill was far from perfect, but the only way to achieve meaningful reform, such as Congressman Southerland's amendment reforming the food stamp program, was in conference.

Oh right, I know what it is. If the GOP could have actually got all of their members to vote for the fucking bill they wouldn't have needed even a single Democrat. 62 Republicans voted against the bill. That is just over 1/4 of them.

Anyone still think there is a chance of meaningful Immigration reform?
