The Whip was in the house last night at Britney Spears's concert in Washington DC. Republican House Minority Whip Eric Cantor reportedly skipped Obama's press conference last night because Britney Spears came to town! He headed to the concert instead.
Cantor's not the only American who tuned out last night. Obama's ratings slipped from his previous presser. However, Cantor recently criticized the president for holding a four-hour meeting on health care, instead of focusing 100 percent of his time on the economic emergency.
The revelation that Cantor's a Britney fan might cause many to scratch their heads and perhaps call Cantor a hypocrite. Oops!
