Here is video of GOP Rep. Allen West talking about the unwillingness on the part of many in our Government to face-up to the threat posed by Radical Islam today. West even points out that we have totally misunderstood the “Arab Spring,” which is actually a takeover of Egypt and other nations by the radical Islamists, like Mohamed Morsi, who frequently reminds critics about his Election victory – “Elections have consequences.” West further pointed out that is the same rhetoric we hear frequently from Barack Obama to justify his policies.
Here is video from this morning on Fox & Friends, where Florida GOP Rep. Allen West conceded defeat to Democrat Patrick Murphy in their 18th Congressional District race. West made the concession today following two weeks of recounts. According to this video, West trails Murphy by 0.58%. He said he did not believe he could get down to the required 0.5% margin to generate an automatic full recount of the vote.
West said he would decide, along with his family, in the days ahead what direction to go in as far as his political future. West’s name is already coming up as a possible candidate for the 2016 GOP Presidential Nomination.
Interesting. Here is an ad from the Allen West Campaign posted November 10 to his YouTube Channel – four days after the 2012 General Election. West trails Democrat Patrick Murphy by just over 2,400 votes and is pursuing a recount in Florida’s 18th Congressional District.
Total destruction. One of the best political ads you will ever see. Allen West contrasts where he was on a night in 2003, and where his Democratic opponent was on the same night.
“Two men, a country in crisis, you decide.”
Here is a new Allen West ad that hammers the Democrats with their fiasco vote yesterday on whether to include “God” in their Party Platform. This ad, and more like it, are likely to play frequently all the way to Election Day.
Here is video of GOP Rep. Allen West bashing President Obama for thinking he can sign an agreement with Afghanistan and negotiate with the Taliban and believe it will bring “peace in our time.” West likened Obama to former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain who signed an agreement with Germany’s Adolf Hitler in the 1930′s and proclaimed “peace in our time.” Of course, Hitler never had any intention of keeping that agreement, and the Taliban will seize power as soon as the United States exits the country.
“He totally doesn’t understand who the Taliban are and what they believe in.”
Here is raw video (uploaded to YouTube by “FL18RawFootage”) of GOP Rep. Allen West at a Town Hall Meeting in Florida being asked what percentage of the “American legislature are card-carrying Marxists or Internationalists?”
West responded: “I believe there’s about 78-81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party.”
Something tells me we will hear more about this in the days ahead.
Here is video from the Steve Gill Radio Show today where Herman Cain said he would advise Mitt Romney to select GOP Rep. Allen West as his Vice-Presidential running mate. Cain said West is “well-spoken” and “direct,” and that he would help Romney win the must-win state of Florida.
NOTE: Corrected. I forgot to put “West” in the headline!
Here is video of GOP Rep. Allen West telling CNN he would consider being Mitt Romney’s Vice-Presidential running mate if asked, although he said he did not think that would happen.
“If someone were to make that call to me, which I really doubt is ever going to happen, you would have to make sure that it is something that God would ordain for you, and you would have to talk to your wife – my wife and two daughters about it. But we have always stepped up to the plate to serve our country, and if it’s the right fit, I would do so. But, as I’ve said, I really fully, much so, doubt that would ever happen.”
When asked if he “liked” Mitt Romney, West responded: “Well, I’ve never been out on a dinner date with him, if that’s what you are asking me, so I don’t know if I would ‘like’ him.”
Here is video of CNN’s Soledad O’Brien fawning over the Obama Campaigns’ use of the Payroll Tax Cut as a “political tool,” as she called it, to make a list of what $40 of additional money it leaves in paychecks will purchase. Allen West picked up on her use of the term “political tool,” and pointed out Obama is just trying to use this as a gimmick. He also said he’s going to make a list of what $40 won’t buy anymore thanks to the Obama Economy.
