TitaniumEagle I’d love to see him on CNN, ABC, CBS or any of the other mainstream networks — if they’d even invite him on. pdxlady …and Unplugged! 🙂 deeme We need someone who can articulate what is happening here..No Budget going on five years..now they want no debt limit, they don’t want any debate..they want to control government without Congress or any other branches of government that disagree..They want to act like we have no Constitution and no say..The mentality that blames and punishes law abiders for the sins of others..but most importantly why didn’t anyone articulate the mayhem to follow all over American when they see their shrunken checks.over the expired Bush tax cuts.Our new goal is not to make more money , but get a raise to make what we made last year..This is insane…West/ Love StandProudNow Budget, Schmudget!! Money, Schmoney!!! Let’s just all get along!! Kumbaya! Stars, Moon(s) and whatever else it is you think you see 🙂 Make LUV!!!! Not War!! Be /Happy!! Obama phone on the way! /sarc deeme Too funny…It’s a new world, we just have our darn priorities all messed up, the skies the limit when you are king…I was hoping West was going to spend most of his time going after voter fraud ,since he was an actual victim of it… Carmen P I’m only interested in voting for POTUS from here on out if THIS man is at the top of the ticket. I swear, I am so over these MUSH Republicans. NJK I agree, I won’t vote for one more mush Republican. I”m through with that. I’ll be going third party if that’s all there is. StandProudNow Palin??? 🙂 How ’bout her? She’s no mush politician. (Per her RECORD! PROVEN historical facts!!) She actually has more PROOF of walking her talk than any other politician even *Thinking* about 2016. West is good in many ways, but please do check his voting record. He’s got a lot to offer, but he got REALLY wobbly when his vote mattered. Look it up for yourself, or don’t argue. info Lt. Colonel West, as you know, we need to stand up for our veterans who have risked their own future to preserve our own safer present and future. I hope that we on the Right will be prepared for what is coming to our VA system, and unify soon to prevent a rapidly developing tragedy. I have an idea that I will reach out to you and present. Good luck to your new position over at PJ Media, we know you will surpass our expectations. GB. tinlizzieowner I’ve been predicting for years that Obama will fold the VA healthcare system into ‘Obamacare’. CPAguy Good move by Mr. West. He needs to stay involved. It would be great if he was on network news, but I don’t see how they would ever allow that. Right now, if he is to become President, he just needs to stay engaged with the base for the next 2 to 3 years. He can reach out to the entirety of the electorate after he has won the primary. aposematic Listen up GOP, it may be your last chance… sDee The GOP does not want conservatives or constitutionalists. The Republican establishment will do any and everything including throwing elections against conservative leaders like they did to Palin and West. That has not changed with the reelection of Hussein Obama. In fact they were fine engineering both McCain and Romney’s campaigns and then letting them swing in the wind. They intend Bush3 and knew they could not get him in 2008 or 2012. Michael Reagan told us what they were up to in the 2012 elections – we just were not paying attention. “Mitt Romney’s advisers are not looking to a 2012 paycheck, but are looking toward their 2016 paycheck” What they have failed to notice is that their conservative base has abandoned them and we are not coming back. aPLWBinAK It’d be fun and funny to watch him on Piers Morgan’s show. tinlizzieowner Having to deal with a real man like Col. West, would scare Morgan to death. aPLWBinAK That’s why it’d be fun to watch tvlgds He’d make minced meat out of Piers Morgan in 2 seconds flat. I’d PAY to see it! aPLWBinAK ‘zactly! white531 Future President of this nation. No current Politician projects the greatness of this country the way this man does. 12grace Allen West is right, as usual. Love him. TexasPGRRider May the Good Lord Bless you and yours, and our Troops wherever they may be, and keep All Safe !!!! PatrickHenrysBody The best thing to happen to Mr. West was getting out of the den of vipers known as U.S. Congress. He was being held back and minimized by idiot Boehner and other leftist (excuse me, “moderate”) Republicants. Now he can really unload on leftist scumbags everywhere. I hope he continues to hold nothing back and hurts as many an elitist global authoritarian’s feelings that he can. 6799 I know in my heart that this man will be president one day. PVG I pray you are right! tvlgds If there is anything left in 2016! We may be a dictatorship before then PVG GOOD NEWS! http://cnsnews.com/news/article/alabama-supreme-court-unborn-children-are-persons-rights sjmom Allen West’s voice will now be stronger with a larger audience. Praise God for it. colliemum Good morning everybody! This is a quick drive-by post, just to show how ‘important’ that disgusting presser was ,in view of the conservative (lite) Daily Telegraph here in the UK: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/ Yep, you saw that right, as of 7 a.m. on Thursday Jan 17th – not one word about the POS. We have more important things to talk about over here – like horse meat in our beef burgers …. Back later! 😉 Libertyship46 Allen West is a smart person. He knows that the next major election will be won through the media. The only way conservatives will have a chance is if we have a significant counterbalance to the liberal mainstream media. We can have the best ideas in the world, but if nobody can hear them then they won’t get far with the voters, especially the low-information voters that are out there today, the ones that get all their “news” from programs like The Daily Show or The View. Conservatives have a lot of work to do in this area. I just hope we can do it before this country really does go bankrupt by 2016. Floyd Alsbach He is incredibly articulate. white531 Apparently, Texans are standing up for our future. Texas threatens feds with arrest over guns. Measure would make any federal firearms legislation passed by Congress or approved by Presidential order unenforceable in Texas (WOAI) – A Texas lawmaker says he plans to file the Firearms Protection Act, which would make any federal laws that may be passed by Congress or imposed by Presidential order which would ban or restrict ownership of semi-automatic firearms or limit the size of gun magazines illegal in the state, 1200 WOAI news reports. http://www.teaparty.org/texas-threatens-to-arrest-any-feds-who-try-enforcing-new-gun-regs-18695/ PhillyCon Morning everyone: This is the newest line from liberals now about the crappy Obamacare law: “If the Pharma industry didn’t write the bill and we had a public option like in Europe, it would have worked.” Gotta love that: it’s the Pharma industries fault. Well, at least, Bush is off the hook with this one. No joke guys, this will be the talking point going forward. But, we knew that right? white531 Just in case you haven’t already seen it, here is the promotional video for the news program that he will be hosting.

Gone to the Post graveyard where all posts wind up eventually. Some sooner than others. Never mind that it was a viable topic. Never mind that people took time out or their lives to contribute to it. Never mind that some still had an opinion on it. Never mind all that. We have moved on, and it is no longer important. This is no better than the soundbite mentality that is presented to us by the media. I thought we were better than that.
