Ironically I was just looking at the CPAC schedule this morning thinking to myself that Allen West is probably the best choice for the CPAC keynote. He has such passion for America and articulates it better than most, and to me he is the embodiment of what’s best about America.

And then Allen West tweeted this morning:

Wow I am truly excited to hear his speech. Cant! Wait!

    I’m trying to think of the downside to Allen West but I cannot. His resume is impressive. The combination of his experience and his education is ridiculously good. He’s polished, articulate, masculine. Presidential.

    My man is a laser-guided Patriot Missile, locked-on and destined for greatness.

      So was Michael Steele…then he got on Rev. Al’s show and played right into the race game. I was disappointed. I wish that blacks who have become successful could get over their ethnicity for one second and act like men instead of the perpetual victim.

        What the hell does Michael Steele have to do with Allen West?

        Wow, nothing like a race-baiting troll to start off your day. Did you put any level of coherent thought into that post or did you just puke it up like the bile that it is? It speaks volumes about you on so many levels.

        Where did that come from? Alan West is no Michael Steele and has to my knowledge NEVER played the race card like you just did. Don’t add your stupidity to your ignorance.

        Michael Steele doesn’t even come a teeny, tiny, miniscule hair on his pinky toe close to LTC West.

      the down side is he is human, he can be altered through outside pressure and convictions of the mind and soul

      Rep. West voted for renewing the PATRIOT Act, that’s one thing that bothered me. I still admire him a great deal, but all of his previous talk about liberty & limited government didn’t seem toenter his mind when voting on it Tuesday.

        I saw that earlier and it does bother me. I know that he holds national security to a high degree of importance….and since he was a soldier, I can certainly understand that.

        However, the past few years have re-awakened Americans to what kind of damage a big government can do with the wrong people in power- and since there are no perfect people, government can not be either. I just hope that he changes his mind when it comes up again.

        As much as he wants safety for Americans, he has to realize (most specifically) from his constituents if they agree or disagree. I know that many of the Tea Party people disagree with his vote, but I don’t know if that sentiment also reflects his district, which he should go to for his decision.

    Great choice. Hope you get video.

    They could not have made a better choice than this true American patriot, might be a good time for those feeling some buyers remorse to pay attention to Mr West’s values, integrity, vision for and pride in his country, and compare them to his complete polar opposite in the White House. The contrast could not be more glaring and yet so simple. It’s simply the difference between good and evil.

    I wish I could go to CPAC, but it is just too expensive. Also, now that they have included the Moslem agenda, I would not give them my money.

    Great choice! This will be fun!

    Excellent choice. Allen West is incredibly articulate, well informed and a great Washington-esque leader.

    Allen West is what Barack Obama could have been if he hadn’t wasted his life dabbling in marxism, socialism and chicagoism.

    Hopefully some of the other networks will broadcast the speech live, despite West being contrary to the media’s narrative of what a conservative should be.

      Dumb-Ø is not even in the same league as West in “the little grey cells” department. Dumb-Ø is not intelligent. West will wipe the floor with him in ANY debate.

        Now THAT is something I would love to watch: Obama (East) vs. West.

    Allen West is a face for now and the future. I love this man.

    • poljunkie

      Totally agree. Mr. West has a great future ahead!

  • poljunkie

    Simply stated- GREAT choice.

    “It doesn’t get any better than being an American citizen.”

    WHAT! a classic statement.
    I’m guessing a patriotic song soon will follow with that one!

    Col. West vs. Obama? I’d go “all in” with West.

    Awesome. You gotta love that man. He tells the truth. He gets America. We could use a few more good men like him.

    Congressman Allen West is absolutely EVERYTHING an American Politician should be. He is intelligent, educated, articulate, honest, handsome, strong, BRAVE, and willing to do whatever he must for the good of his country. A true soldier and MAN OF HONOR and any mother could only pray that her sons and daughters would grow up with him as their hero.
