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.
Here is video of GOP Rep. Allen West blasting President Obama for his failed leadership. He also blasted the liberal media for not calling out Obama on his many failures.
“It’s about time that I asked this from the media: Stop being afraid of this president. Stand up to him and call him out on the shirking of his duties and responsibilities. The House Republicans are passing pieces of legislation, after pieces of legislation about jobs.”
And here we got a president that’s gone off to Australia, playing golf in Hawaii, and you guys allow him to make this decision to shut down this Keystone XL project. The media needs to call out this president and stop coming over here to the House Republicans and telling us what we’re not doing. We’re the ones taking action. The guy sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is destroying this country.”
Here is video of a combative segment tonight on The O’Reilly Factor between guest host Laura Ingraham and Democrat Rep. Charlie Rangel.
Rangel was on to respond to Rep. Allen West’s statement yesterday that the Democrat Party of today is a “21st Century Plantation” for the Black Community in America. But Ingraham and Rangel went back and forth the entire segment. Rangel got so expasperated at one point that he said, “Bill O’Reilly told me he had a secret weapon– I didn’t know it was just a pretty girl that they’d bring in!” Rangel later apologized: “I’m sorry I said you were attractive – I withdraw that completely.”
I think Charlie was very uncomfortable with the substance of what Allen West said, and the questions posed by Ingraham. He had no answers – and it showed.
Rep. Allen West says Ron Paul is “not the kind of guy you need to have sitting on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue,” because of his stance on Iran getting nuclear weapons. West was reacting to Paul’s comments at last Thursday’s debate, where he said Iran should be allowed to acquire nuclear weapons.
GOP Rep. Allen West has released a 50th Birthday message for President Barack Obama:
“Happy 50th Birthday Mr. President! While surprises are for birthdays, it is no surprise to the American people that your failed economic policies –- from TARP to your health care bill–- have resulted in disaster for our economy. Since taking office, unemployment has remained at or near 9 percent for 28 months, America has added $3.4 trillion in debt in 29 months — the equivalent of about $4 billion per day — we have an anemic housing market with record foreclosures, and an average price of nearly $4 for a gallon of gas. Even your budget did not receive one single vote in the United States Senate — and the icing on the cake –- a stock market slide of nearly 800 points in the last 5 days.
While it may be hard to hear the American people’s frustration over the pop of the champagne corks and R&B bands at your $30,000/person birthday party, the citizens of this nation are suffering under your failed leadership. The best present you can give the American people will be for you and your failed economic policies to be defeated in November of 2012.”
