    I don’t think it can be measured how awesome Allen West is.

      I love West too… but he needs to be aiming at Boehner as well… as should the other reps in the House.

  • Anonymous

    Yeah! Those squishy Senant Republicans need to be called on the carpet. Right out in the open. Give ’em H€ll, Congressman West!

  • Allen West:
    Moral clarity

    Finally somebody who’s actually taking on the GOP Establishment in Washington. Finally!! We desperately need a man like this running for POTUS.

    Allen West/Chuck Noris 2012 because it’s time to take back our country from the Communist Zombies in Washington.

        What do you mean… get specific. Drop kick her over the wall, under the wall,around the wall, through the wall??

      That is a great ticket, but I support Gingrich right now.

      The lamestream media is trashing Newt for “historical” baggage. All politicians have baggage if we dig deep enough, but the lamestream/left socialists won’t expose democrats, they love the big zero/Obama. Newt has made his mark with his “Contract with America,” a contract he fulfilled that no other politician can match.

    Okay, West is seriously starting to regain my respect now. He is doing something rather then talking now…Good on you Col. West!

  • Alan West is a true and honorable patriot tempered by serving in the Middle East. He has proved himself by doing the right things throughout his life. For the Left to hate someone like Col. West as they do, i can only conclude they must be racists.

    • Anonymous

      That’s one aspect with which I judge character. If the left hates someone THAT much, then they must be worthwhile.

    West and Rubio have let me down. The best leaders in my opinion are those who feel inadequate and do not seek the duties of leadership. They are the antithesis of a McCain or Obama. You do it because you are called, because it is necessary. Maybe we just didn’t call loud enough. If this current group fails us, it is over.

    Listen to it again and then send this feed to all the people you know. Repeat, listen to the feed again and send it to all the people you know.

    The only concern I have is that by 2016, the Chief Usurper will unilaterally suspend all future elections, and declare himself as POTUS forever. The sniveling group of Republicans we currently have would probably go along with it (West and Rubio excepted of course)!

    Lt. Col. West for Speaker!

  • Boehner needs to be replaced by Allen West.
    McConnell needs to be replaced by Jim DeMint or Marco Rubio.
    We don’t need our leadership to be feckless, incoherent boobs who have no principles, no charisma, and no cojones — especially when there are real conservatives available.
    2012 is coming – and we need to elect THE MOST CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATES possible.

    I just don’t understand why the people of AZ elected this socialist McCain again. I don’t know how they expect to solve the country’s problems by electing this fossil. Are we going to be stuck with him like Byrd, until they have to move his hand to sign something?

    AZ, I hope you put in someone fresh and new the next time. So the rest of the country doesn’t have to suffer with him. McCain, McConnell and Boehner need to be removed.

      Consider the reputation of his opponent in that election, it as a major pooch-screw on the part of the Arizona GOP.

    I like Allen West. He pulls no punches

  • Anonymous

    Allan West for Speaker of the House.
    Allan West for Vice President
    Allan West for Sec. of defense.

    All 3 at once if possible.

  • Ya…well if West is so great…where was he standing up BEFORE this all came to pass? And, where was he during this last Defense Bill that was passed and now can intern US Citizens without due process? He voted FOR it. These politicians all have their heads up their collective butts.

      I wondered about that also, until Scoop put up a clip earlier today showing West actually reading the provisions of the bill, that does NOT provide for what the media and you have suggested. You should check it out. It was a very informative video clip.

    I have a lot of respect for Colonel Congressman West.

    There are times and issues I may disagree with him on. Make that vehemently disagree with him about. I’d say more of my disagreements with him tend to be on financial and economic arenas. But one thing I have the utmost respect for him on is his integrity.

    In my personal opinion, its his integrity that gives him the benefit of the doubt. Its based on his integrity that I support this man.

    Hopefully we gain control over the Senate and dethrone Boehner (the cave-in king in Congress) and just maybe we can get something conservative accomplished. Oh yeah, Obama must go, too.

  • Constance

    The problem here is that until the present GOP leadership is removed, all of this hand wringing and strong words and radio interviews mean nothing. If the priority of Mr. West and the other conservatives in the House is not to remove Boehner and Cantor before attempting to move forward, then they are effectively playing the same “Kabuki Dance” with the American people. I like what Mr. West said… I just am not buying it. Until I see some action that is meaningful, which must start with removing present leadership, then it’s all just words to me.

    “A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.” – Marcus Tullius Cicero, Roman Orator – 106-43 B.C

    West is JUST SO FREAKIN’ NAIV’E ! I’m sure he believesTHAT if only we could all just get along and have a kumbaiya hug, world peace would brake out,LOL! Or you could fix this DISASTER called the REPUBLICAN PARTY, it’s as RUSH has said, the GOP ELITE have their own agenda and it doesn’t line up with the Conservative agenda!

  • ApplePie101

    Why did West trust McConnell and McCain? Is he still so naive?

    • Anonymous

      Because, throwing their TRUST around foolishly is just what the naive do, not to mention a certain Utopian philosophy that clashes with reality!

  • Dinky Dot

    I really do wish Mr. West would mention his 22 year military record now and then ….
