Allen West was interviewed by NPR recently on a number of topics, including his recent defeat and his future. But what’s making news is what West interjected at the very end of the interview after being asked about his future. He’s a partial transcript:
MARTIN: So what’s next for you?
WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That’s my goal. I have two daughters, 19 and 16, and I want to make sure that they grow up in a great America that provides them all the opportunities that it provided to their mother and father.
MARTIN: Congressman Allen West is completing his term in Congress. He was kind enough to join us from a House recording studio on Capitol Hill here in Washington, D.C.
WEST: And always remember, Abraham Lincoln only served one term in Congress, too.
MARTIN: Duly noted. Congressman West, thank you so much for speaking with us.
WEST: Take care, now.
I’d love nothing more than to see West continue to rise to the point of being president someday. And I sincerely hope that’s what he meant by that comment.
