Allen West: If God’s will that I should be president, it will happen

Nothing gets the crowd going at an Allen West town hall like someone saying “I can’t wait for the opportunity to refer to you as President-elect West”. The crowd goes wild! West takes it in stride and has a great answer!

After that the same guy also asks West about CAIR, or more to the point, why CAIR hasn’t been shut down yet.

Enjoy!

    Allen West is a treasure.
    CAIR is a danger!

  • iwantmycountryback

    A man after my own heart! Love the way he thinks AND I love the swipe he took at Weiner!!!!

      HOW DID WEINERS PARENTS KNOW HOW TO SO APTLY NAME HIM AT HIS BIRTH???

    Oh please don’t get my hopes up, nothing would be better than a West ticket.

    Even when he dismisses a presidential run, he humbles himself and says that we can’t follow a cult of personality, and that he hasn’t merited the office yet. Even in dismissing a run for office, he shows himself as someone who is a man of principle and honor. Can’t imagine what it would be like to have an honorable President.

    I’m glad he’s at least in the house, for the time being.

      It’s been a while since we have had an honorable president…aka tha Gipper!!

    Great answer, Allen… but that is not going to stop each and every one of us spreading the fertiliser though those grass roots and watching the respect and desire for you to lead us grow daily :^) The question about the US government-approved American terror-sponsored organisation CAIR is well answered.

    As usual the COL is spot on! He is a born leader but does need to learn the method of operation/procedures. ‘Ike’ (GEN) Isenhouer was well liked and respected, but the presidential time was not so successful.
    This shows the man’s wisdom. God protect and bless him

    • JE

      The executive isn’t (supposed to be) a legislative branch. What can he possibly learn from Weiner that would make him more qualified to be President?

  • MagnaEstVeritas

    All I can say is this , I surely wish we in England had such a man to lead us, and I might add, that when Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected President of the Good old USA , he had never held public office,and look what a great President he turned out to be !
    The People got behind Ike with Rally’s and posters with the words “” I LIKE IKE “” , we could do the same for Allen B. West …. “” FORGET THE REST ‘COS WEST IS BEST “”

      I wish we had an Allen West in Canada.

      All we have are Conservatives in Liberal clothing and Liberals who are bound and bent to force an unwanted election because they want to be back in power again.

      Go, Allen….the US needs you now more than ever.

      • las

        Don’t you just luuuv Ignatief and Taliban Jack whinging and whining that Harper has a deficit…. those clowns begged for a 50B bailout of the Auto Industry and stimulus, so they got what they demanded… then they have kahonas the size of NewFoundland to accuse Harper of contributing to the debt… morons. And Ignatief appears as an angry pi$$ed off old man. Stands there in Parliament, face all contorted with feigned outrage. What a patrician!

        As for our Conservatives being progressive liberals… you got that right.

    • MarkD

      I’m with you Magna (Brit here too), the only people we have speaking out about our own version of CAIR (the MCB) are the BNP which is a racist left wing socialist party. Our entire right wing has opted for a cowardly slightly right of left of centre stance. What are we left with? UKIP – a marginal one issue party that doesn’t even contend all seats…

      C’mon guys – you got all the sensible, honourable politicians – lend us some already! Obviously you can keep your NeoComs 🙂

      Can you make us some bumper stickers, they’ll spread like wild fire amd you can make some money to boot.

    I’m all for a Palin/West ticket!

      Me too and I’ve been saying it for months. Lets pray in agreement.

    Mr. West, you have met Colleen Marie Jelsch, who is thinking about getting into politics and I am her right hand man so to speak, I enjoyed seeing the picture she has with you and I want to let you know, you are a man that can be trusted it is in your face and in your deeds, please don’t change, We need real men and American like you. Thank you for giving us something good to believe in.

    Let me see if I can’t coax him with my best God impression.

    Allen West, son of man…Hearken thou unto my words which I have borrowed from the folks over at Nike. Just Do it! …and I’ll sort out the rest.

    Disclaimer: I have no idea what God might say, but I have a basic idea of His nature, which I have gleaned from his best selling book.

  • Johnschaffran

    Don’t dismiss this man to run against Obama. This man is a leader and know exactly how to handle the middle east. This would be awesome!

    We have NO ONE of quality running for Prez. We need you Allen West and WE need you NOW !!!! 2016 will be too late !!! For God and Country run in 2012 !!!! WEST TO THE WEST WING IN 2012 !!!!!!

  • I still admire Mr. West, but after considering his voting in favor or renewing the PATRIOT Act I began to wonder about how consistent he would be in defending the Constitution if he were elected POTUS. The following article from the Tenth Amendment Center should be read by everyone who supports him like I have:

    It hurts everones head to listen to Weiner.

    …and although we do need strong Conservatives in the House of Representatives…. we desperately need a tried and true Patriot in the Oval Office….someone who will stop the maniacal spending, and stop these crazy liberals from trying to destroy our great country!

    Earlier today I read that the IRS is saying, “no stupid excuses”…..what about all the stupid excuses the Feds are making to spend taxpayers money and our country into insolvency!

  • Tygerpaw

    Mr. West, you don’t need to be a good legislator to be a good leader. Moses didn’t think he could speak to the Pharoah either, but he had too…because it was God’s will that he do it. No righteous man even chosen by God sought the job or the responsibility. God gave then what they needed to get through, though. Have faith that if you are called to this, He will give your the wisdom and discernment you need.

    • Tygerpaw

      sorry for the typos…

    I get sorta tired of reading on RS comment boards about how Rep West (who I REALLY like) needs to run in 2012…you know, something like West/Rubio 2012 (not even constitutionally allowed, by the way). Because he ISN’T ready. And if he runs before he even finishes his first term, he comes off like a “President-wannabe-all-the-time-just-for-the-title” candidate. Like Biden. Furthermore, to elect West in 2012 would be no different from electing a young, bright, charismatic young Senator first elected in 2004 and still in his first term. The liberals would howl playing the “hypocrite” card, and they would be EXACTLY right to do it. Us conservatives really need to give this thing up where we jump for the first newly elected cult-of-personality we see. What is it that motivates this? Couldn’t beat Obama, so let’s try to replicate what he did? To what ends? Ladies and gentlemen, this stuff simply isn’t mature, considered decision-making. And to comment so repetitively how the new foal is the next Secretariat is foolhardy. Let’s not work so hard to try to beat Obama that we become Obama!

    On the other hand, Rep West appears to be a very mature, self-aware person for saying what he said and not listening to this stuff. It doesn’t mean he won’t soon be ready. He gave you the list of things he’s working on picking up. He’s a very smart guy, and he’s VERY disciplined, so I believe it can happen. Just not in 2012. Reagan took a long time to mature to where he was ready as well. And he was much better for it.

    Please read this and think about it. Take your time with different candidates. The instincts are good on this, but let him take some time to grow, build, develop…and then become insurmountable for the progressives to overcome. Same for Sen Rubio.

    Thanks!

      I can not agree with you. Obummer never lead anything, or anyone, anywhere in his life. Our Lt. Col. Lead Our men and women in the battlefield, and sacrificed his career to SAVE lives. I am not happy with these RINO’S , Has beens, Re-runs, and wannabe’s. HE IS ONE HELL OF A PATRIOT. I and MANY Americans will be praying that God leads him to the WHITE HOUSE ( which currently is painted RED with Socialism) !!!!! I am a true believer in, and practice POSITIVE THINKING !!! WEST TO THE WEST WING in 2012 !!!

      • Marshall

        Wait, what? He’s got positive thinking on his side? Well, then, let’s get the billion dollars raised on Rep West’s behalf right now!

        Give me a break. I’m 2 promotions away from being a Lt Col myself. Do that and get elected 1 time to Congress…oh, and with the power of positive thinking…I too am presidential timber!

        Right now, Rep West gets steamrolled by an organized, disciplined, well-funded candidate any days of the week. Build the coalition, earn people’s trust, and THEN commit. Maybe run for Florida governor or Senate first. Win a statewide election first. Lead quietly.

        Maybe you should listen to the Congressman’s own words. He’s more in tune with what the Lord wants from him than any of the rest of us.

    A constitutional republic would be better than what we have, for sure. I would like to see more politicians speak about our status in these terms rather than affirming a semi non-existent status. As I see it, we are a CRINO. (constitutional republic in name only) More practically, we are more like a democratic oligarchy. We elect often the same family members to an executive position of dictatorship who then use this power to turn us into surfs of the State largely through unelected regulators, and without consent of the people. America, the land of the suckers, and the home of the gullible. Sorry if I offend any patriots out there. I have a hard time being patriotic to this system of rule. I do not see a free country in our country. If we compare ourselves to extreme terrorist type dictators, we have it pretty good. The problem is, it isn’t getting any better. Rather, worse.

    I am in England. Lft.Col. ALLEN WEST would be a great president

  • Anonymous

    I think he’d be a great President. I’m only sorry he won’t be the FIRST, but he’s got to spend another 2-3 terms in Congress and then make the jump to Governor of Florida or Senator before he can move to the White House. He’s young enough and Congress and then the FL Governor or Senator is the experience he needs to garner. No more POTUS trainees–we saw what happened with Obama’s on-the-job training!

  • Allen West is my choice as American Hero and Patriot as well as our Prez. in 2012.
