BLISTERING! New Allen West ad torches Patrick Murphy for earlier arrest, shows mug shot in ad

Talk about a death blow. Allen West proves he knows how to do battle by releasing an ad that hammers Patrick Murphy for getting arrested and fighting cops the same night he was preparing to take his men into war. It even shows Murphy’s mug shot.

This is a killer ad:

  • This is a fantastic ad. Go West!

    • Don

      Allen West will be the REAL first black president.

      • conservative61

        Black, white, or whatever, Allen West will be a REAL President. The man has courage, integrity, strong moral underpinnings, and loves freedom. What more could a conservation ask? We’re moving to Florida next January, though not in Col. West’s district. I’ll continue to follow his political “career” nonetheless.

      • West would be an amazing President- and he would know how to lead, would take his national security meetings and wouldn’t golf 104 times in 3.5 years (oh, and Iran and Putin and China would all not nearly be as bold- in fact I think they would be quite humble). Col. West is a warrior, hero, intellectual and leader. That’s what a President should be.

  • Hilarious and simply perfect. Great, great ad.

  • RosiesSeeingRed

    Yep, this is what works. Now I would like to see a Romney ad with images of Obama carrying his copy of Rules for Radicals under his arm with excerpts from the book displayed every few frames, along with clips of Rev. Wright, Frank Marshall Jones and Bill Ayers. People will begin to connect the dots if you are willing to enumerate the picture for them.

    • Romney could take some lessons from West, that’s for sure.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Its incredible how weak Romney’s ads are, we keep waiting and waiting, and waiting for Romney to get ruthless, Obama is a christmas tree to pick from for Romney to attack him

        • M_J_S

          Typical Romney ad:

          “This economy is bad, mmmkay, and I’m Mitt Romney and I approve this message….mmmkay.”

          • proudhispanicconservative

            Lol true but at the same time frustrating.

          • That mmmmmkay made me laugh so hard!!! You channeled Mr. Mackey perfectly!

        • stage9

          There’s a saying in the South: “You’ll be waiting until the cows come home.”

        • Garym

          You took the words out of my fingertips. What a great ad!!

      • Dukehoopsfan

        This is a repeat but I believe it is appropriate.

        I’d like to see the Rommney/Ryan campaign adopt a little of this attitude.

        With props to Knute Rockne of Notre Dame

        “We’re going inside of ‘em, we’re going outside of ‘em — inside of ‘em! outside of ‘em! — and when we get them on the run once, we’re going to keep ‘em on the run. And we’re not going to pass unless their secondary comes up too close. But don’t forget, men — we’re gonna get ‘em on the run, we’re gonna go, go, go, go! — and we aren’t going to stop until we go over that goal line! And don’t forget, men — today is the day we’re gonna win. They can’t lick us — and that’s how it goes… The first platoon men — go in there and fight, fight, fight, fight, fight! What do you say, men!

        My recon Marine dad always said that the best defense is a good offense. Reagan believed it. Romney/Ryan should take a lesson and act accordingly.

        • Galatiansch2vs20

          Reagan also played in this movie:

          • Dukehoopsfan

            Thanks, I thought so but did not take the time to look.

            • Galatiansch2vs20

              You’re welcome! Win one for the Gipper, Mitt!

    • Frank Marshall Davis.

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        Woops! Right — what was I thinking! Thank you!

        • las1

          What you so ably expressed and enumerated above, with a veritable rogues gallery of disreputable characters, is what I have been b*tching about now for months here at RS regarding the Romney ads. What you so ably and succinctly said is veritable gold laying in the street to pick up and use in truth telling ads against the imposter P.O.S.-in-Chief, yet dumb ol’ Team Romney has absolutely no clue.

          And that’s why I am biting my nails all the way through November 6th.

          • Wisewoman2

            I have some cncerns too. That’s why I wanted him to fire or demote his election team and put someone who knew how to run a winning national campaign in charge.

    • You don’t need to do that. Just show him signing the Porkulus, Obamacare, Dodd-Frank and all, and his empty promises. Alinsky had Rules for Radicals. Obama has Radical Rules.

    • stage9

      You see, there you go trying to make a Conservative out of a RINO. It’s like trying to force a square peg into a round hole. It ain’t gonna happen. We must believe Obamney when he says that he’s not going to be aggressive, instead “I am just going to be myself.”

      And so he is…

      • RosiesSeeingRed

        So are you saying (a) Mitt’s a RINO and because of that (b) he won’t fight.

        So you think he doesn’t actually want to win this election or something? I don’t follow the RINO logic.

        • stage9

          Yeah, kind of.

          I don’t think it’s a matter of him not wanting to win. I’ve never known a politician that didn’t want to win. I’m not sure that’s the right argument to make.

          I think Obamney is simply out of touch with the pulse of the nation. He is living in a 1990’s view of America. He still believes the Old democrat party exists! That he can work with liberals to make a “better America”. I think he truly believes this. This is what he’s done in MA. He doesn’t recognize the gulf between two opposing worldviews nor does the GOP. That’s why they’re so inept and accommodating in Congress. They don’t see it.

          The American people are recognizing a major cultural shift in America. They see it, they feel it, and they’re concerned about it. It’s a shift towards marxism. (Let’s just call it for what it is). Countering this shift can’t be realized by some narrow-minded belief that the economy alone is the issue, because it’s not!

          Liberalism must be utterly wiped from the face of the earth. It is nothing more than communism in disguise. (And even the disguise is a poor one at that).

          This war in America is fundamentally about conflicting worldviews! The economy is in the tank because one worldview believed that investing in a socialist style of government is what America needed. But socialism has its roots in atheistic thinking which is a belief system utterly foreign to most Americans but right at home in countries like China, North Korea and the former Soviet Union. This worldview is driving this cultural shift we see happening in America today. It is behind the collapse of the economy, behind the appeasement in the Middle East, behind the diminishing education of our children, and behind the moral collapse in our culture. And it’s this worldview that must be exposed and destroyed. Fixing the economy alone won’t do it.

          Because let’s assume for a moment Obamney DOES win, and then by some miracle he wins again for a second term. What happens after that when yet another liberal is elected to the White House? What happens when he or she decides to again start down this road of demolishing America from the inside out? What happens when they undo EVERYTHING Obamney and his administration had tried to fix? I’ll tell you where we’ll be: back at square one!

          The culture is becoming less civil and more violent and hostile. The future is going to look a lot like the streets of Greece during the uprising. As our culture becomes more and more secular and jettisons godly moral values, it will become a cauldron of animosity and hate. We’re seeing the development of that even now — the incivility at rallies and the violence attributed to OWS.

          You see, what we need is a FUNDAMENTAL shift BACK to God and our Constitutional principles. That is the ONLY ANSWER!

          Liberalism does not believe in God, so by association it can’t accept a Constitution that has its roots in God!

          This is a war for the soul of America and her Constitution, not simply the repair of our economy. If we don’t destroy the worldview that drove us into this mess, we are only DELAYING the inevitable.

          That’s why Colonel West, Mia Love, Michelle Bachmann and others like them are a start in that direction. The political class, of which Obamney is a part, will NOT CORRECT ITSELF! It hasn’t got the nerve! It will take an all out assault at the ballot box for years and years to come to right this ship. And even then, the American people must DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY from its leaders! This “hands-off” approach to liberty is CRAP! And it’s not working!

          Obamney is a puppet of the GOP; Colonel West is a man on a mission. He is no one’s puppet. He understands what’s at the heart of the problem. What we need is a Colonel West to lead us at this crucial hour, not more of the GOP’s foot soldiers!

          I can go on, but I digress.

          • RosiesSeeingRed

            I don’t disagree with you on any of this, but I don’t see at this point what you can do about it unless you are planning to vote for Gary Johnson out of principle. I don’t otherwise know what point it serves to keep carrying on about Romney being a RINO.

            The way I see it is: at the very LEAST, Romney loves America, and Barack Obama does not. Therefore, Romney is a better choice than Obama in THIS election, which is the only one we have right now.

            I believe in the future we will have a better choice if we continue to build up the house and senate with Wests, Loves, Bachmanns and Rand Pauls. It’s a process. Obama was good for SOMETHING — he woke us up! We will not undo the infiltration of communism via the democrat party overnight, just as they did not infiltrate over night. We will do it in steps. Actually, we already ARE doing it in steps. And in the meantime, an American loving president and ally to Israel is a better choice than the marxist in office now.

            Carry on all you want about Col. West. No one here disagrees with you — clearly he is loved by all of us! But He’s Not Running For President Right Now.

            You have a lot of good things to say…channel it toward getting Obama out of the white house, even if that means electing Romney. It’s the patriotic thing to do.

  • proudhispanicconservative

    Ouch that one leaves a mark AGAIN!
    This is why when I donate to him I do it with confidence that the money will be spent correctly.

  • FANTASTIC!! Death blow indeed! He aint getting up after that hit! whoaaaaah

  • denbren52

    A country in crisis: Obama on the View. Obama on Letterman. Obama in Vegas. Obama on the golf course. Obama skipping intel briefings. This is what Romney needs to show the country. Because our media never will.

    • Excellent!

    • sDee

      That would be effective…. just Hussein, his calender and, events from a world going up in flames

  • Terrenceor

    Boy that looked easy. Why A superpac won’t do that or better yet why Romney won’t is beyond me?

    • tshtsh

      For some reason Gov. Romney thinks telling the truth about b.o. is character assassination. b.o. does not have principles so there is nothing to assassinate.

      • actionsspeaklouder

        I totally agree – the only character that is getting assassinated is Romney’s.

      • That old saying “Tell the truth and shame the Devil” seems very apt.

  • Juan_Rico

    BWAHAHAHAHAhhhaaa… (catches breath) HAHAHAHAhahah

    That was awesome!! That may be the greatest campaign ad I’ve ever seen.

    Sorry… gotta run that a couple more times. It’s even better the second time.

  • ryanomaniac

    Know what you do with a sucker? Thump’em on the head. Hey Romney, you’re a smart Guy, when you see something that works….repeat it.

  • Perfect comparison!

  • Romney doesnt have a killer ad or message its scattered messages. lots of Obama failures but nothing that humilates Obama. Sununu’s message that Obama is Lazy & Detached is an undisputable statement. It’s endangering America. Run with it.

    • hbnolikeee

      Where? The LSM controls that message.

  • marketcomp

    OMG! This ad is so awesome and full of truth. Hello Mitt Romney, this is your blueprint, a side-by-side of the two people. Example-2002 Mitt Romney was running the olympics during a challenging time wife Ann’s illness and after the most brutal attack ever on American soild-9/11. During that same year Barack Obama was community organizing and sitting in Jeremiah Wright’s chruch where he was a participant for 20 years listening to-GD America-and Americas chickens are coming home to roost! Two men a country in crisis who do yu want to lead!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      No no no no no he will not touch the past. That is the advice from the likes of Kristol, Rove, and all the gutless rinos. It is really pathetic, let me tell you the results of fighting like this. Allen West 53% Patrick Murphy 43% those are the actual numbers of the race.

      • Thanks for the numbers, I wondered how West was doing against Murphy.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          Yes his campaign emailed me yesterday and as you know I was excited as hell 🙂

          • Any chance you can clone Lt. Col West and send a few copies to States that need them. We could do with a dozen or so here in MA for a start!

      • marketcomp

        But isn’t that that simple and to the point right? I think every candidate, especially tea party candidates should use that advertisement as a blueprint. When considering a person for a job you always call references and look at the past and compare that with other candidates. We look at Barack Obama’s past and Romney’s past, simple. One made a living off government and the other made a living in private industry and was a fantastic father.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          That is what I meant with my comment that the Romney campaign is being advised not to fight like that. Thats what frustrates all of us, Obama is an empty suit and is so easy to destroy if only they would remind people who Obama is. I was being sarcastic about the idiots running his campaign and yes it should be a blueprint.

  • sjmom

    That’s what I’m talking about!

  • GREAT AD! Romney needs to get on the phone to Lt. Col. West and get some tips on how to make effective, memorable, knock out ads! ASAP!!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      I often wonder if the Romney campaign visits these sites and see all the suggestions we make, because I feel he has been fighting this the wrong way.

      • One would hope. But based on how he’s fighting now, there is little evidence. I agree there is pearls of wisdom to be found in the articles and comments on this website and Romney, or someone from the Romney camp with some draw would do well to visit and takes notes.

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        I kept talking on this site about no ads on 11 connects here in east TN and shortly after I mentioned they also reach parts of Virginia (Bristol is target), I started seeing ads from Romney. May have been coincidence?

  • Learnedsmtn2day

    Beautiful !

  • Psyphurr Lock

    DAM! That’s gotta leave a mark or two. Awesome ad!

  • char12

    Love It! Way to go Allen West!

  • 911Infidel

    Man vs boy. Man goes to war. Boy goes to jail.

  • Punch back twice as hard…. er… 10 times as hard. Nice job congressman West.

  • The demonrats admire people like this. His ratings will probably go up after viewing this ad.

    • That’s sure how the media will try to report it. Trying to Fix polls is their new way of hiding the truth.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Talking about polls even fox is falling for this crap as to how Obama is winning, thei latest polls say Obama is winning by 9 points and how the democrat enthusiasm is up to 59% . I say dont let the discourage us.

        • Yes, Rush took it apart nicely the other day. As did some political commentator on O’Reilly’s show who’s name escapes me now. They keep oversampling and manipulating the vote result until it fits their agenda and then they publish it.

          • proudhispanicconservative

            Dick Morris?

  • Murphy is a Democrat that saids it all, go Republican – go West.
    Great Ad Col.West.

  • Now THAT’S the way to wake up after a crappy nigths sleep!! YAY!!

    • proudhispanicconservative

      He is freaking awesome, Romney wake up.

    • Had the Mark Levin style, 3am wake up?

      I apparently slept enough hours, but feel like I didn’t.

      Must not be working hard enough.

      • I was up commenting and researching until 2:30, then my mind was so overloaded with stuff, I couldn’t sleep half the night. If I slept more than an hour at a time- I’d be surprised. Ah well, I’m wide awake now 😀

  • PicklePlants

    I read the comments before I watched the ad, so I was full of anticipation. I was NOT disappointed! This is a great, great ad. Now I understand that Romney needs to copy this format and pound the public with the comparison of himself and Obama. Choose a simple, single point in time. How about taking the National Security briefings? I’m sure Romney attended a full briefing on the day of the embassy attack, and it is already on record that Obama read the briefing on his iPad. What a great comparison that would be!

  • Style Delights

    BTW, That’s how the Romney ads should be! To the point and underscoring the URGENCY of the crisis we are facing!

  • Style Delights

    BTW< anyone who STILL votes for Murphy is either brain dead or really hate America!

    • Linky1

      Same sentiments go for voting for Obama!

    • sDee

      That covers pretty much Obama’s entire electorate. Nothing else can explain it.

  • m0r0

    This is how you fight! Romney could learn a whole lot from this man. Alan West is my hero!

  • Now THIS is an AD! Mitt should be running ads like this about Obozo!

  • proudhispanicconservative

    This ad is so good I’ve watched it 5 times today not only because the ad is so great, because is such a powerful message and is so inspiring it gives me the goose bumps.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Uh…needless to say I’d vote for Allen West. Wish I could do like some Dimocrats and vote early and vote often for Rep. West. He’s my kind of leader!!!!

    • TheLittleRedHen

      Yeah…. We all wish we could….. if it just weren’t for our honesty issues. Haha!

      • Army_Pilot1967

        Yeah, I guess we believe in the rule of law and we try to be good citizens.

  • Marky_D

    I believe my kids would use the term ”pwned” to describe adverts like this 🙂

  • OUCH!

  • Sober_Thinking

    Brilliant! 🙂

    Wish Allen West was our President.

  • TheLittleRedHen

    I love Allen West! If there is one thing he knows how to do it is Fight! Keep the Heat on him Allen, we are all with you even if we don’t live in Florida!

  • proudhispanicconservative
    • TheLittleRedHen

      Two things that made me smile this morning. This ad and your uplifting link. Thanks Proudhispanicconservative. Can I abbreviate that next time. 😉 PHC?

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Lol let me tell you how uplifting this is for me I work at night and just got home I have not been able to go to sleep because of this ad, and the news of the results. I have met him personally and he is as genuine as you see him. He is a national treasure.

    • West needs to give Mitt Romney one of those 3am telephone calls.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        🙂 So true.

    • sDee

      Looks like Romney is riding West’s coattails.

      • proudhispanicconservative

        Yeah 47% to 41% but if he had a more agressive campaign he would be up double digits too.

        • Linky1

          Romney’s numbers should be in the high 60’s right now.

        • p m

          Don’t worry phc, R&R are going to win by double digits.

          • proudhispanicconservative

            I believe so too despite the MSM telling us that the race is over and Obama won.

  • stage9

    ooook….Disqus is doing some weird things here.

    • Yesterday I had comments disappear entirely only to return some 15 minutes later. 🙁

      • Galatiansch2vs20

        My comments kept disappearing late last night. I finally gave up.

    • Last week I was placing a comment on an article at Stacy McCain’s place. Due to some weird timing bug, it got attached instead to a comment that wasn’t even “up” yet at his site. Disqus simply “loses the handle” from time to time.

  • Dukehoopsfan

    This is likely Col. West’s “Willie Horton” moment. Bye bye murphy!

  • hermsmd

    Awesome. I love West’s ‘take no prisoners’ attitude. I hope others are paying attention and learning from this.

  • BOOM ! He’s done.
    (((( Go West))))

  • LiveFreeOrDie2012

    Colonel, please call Team Romney and teach them! This was fantastic.

  • Now that! is a great add. Truthful and direct and complete with facts. Whats not to like!
    Re-elect Allen West for congress…. and come 2016 the white house.

  • nibblesyble

    Now that is how you fight back! Romney get on the phone and let West have ten mins of your time…then we can all watch Obama become rat-bait!

  • Now THAT is friggin’ hilarious.

    Well done, sir!

  • Earthforce1

    Col. West just took a Howitzer to a knife fight.

    He.Needs.To.Be.Speaker of the house!

    • stage9

      He needs to be President!

      • Earthforce1

        Agreed, I was just thinking near term.

        Ace has a link covering how Patrick Murphy is counterattacking by claiming West was kicked out of the Army for his well known interaction with an Iraqi suspect.

        Of course West wasn’t kicked out (though he was reprimanded). He did eventually resign…after proving himself to be Col. Badass and a man who knows how to get things done. Him and Jack Baur need to do a show together.


  • I love this man, I want you to be me my President one day …

  • Mary_Linda

    Typical American politics of the past. A thug figures out he can scam the public by becoming a politician. Allen West, God bless him, is a refreshing and positive alternative to the way things used to be.

  • blackbird

    This is one of the best most effective ads I have ever seen. Murphy is done.

  • West will win big, thank GOD! We so need people like him in Congress, people who place duty and country above personal gain. West has a great future ahead of him.

  • VeryOldSoldier

    If only Obama had displayed a lifetime of the same character, courage, patriotism, and intellect that LTC West has, – he’d be a shoe-in for re-election.

    Fortunately for the Floridians of the 18th Congressional district, you have Allen West. Up here in Massachusetts we have 9 socialist MoonBats running for re-election, and damned few real Republicans to oppose them. Allen West was WARMLY received here when he visited the Old North Bridge and the Lexington Green.

    Florida, please help save the country! Re-elect Allen, but FIRE Obama!

  • Thats gonna leave a f’n mark!!!

  • Boooyah!

  • That’s the way to go, don’t hold the punches, Romney can learn a lesson here.

  • jaybenson

    Dirty move by West. Come on. Why use an incident from 30 years ago. Okay, 20 yrs ago. Well yeah, it was only 9 yrs ago but still, Patrick Murphy was just a little kid then. Adult? Well, he was arrested because he is a minority and you can’t fault an Irish for fighting… its their nature!

    Bottom line: West should know better. He obviously forgot all the diversity lessons he received while in the military. You know, like the ones provided by CAIR and other groups.

    • As an officer, I’m betting Allen West had to dress down his men for fighting in bars a few times.

      ESPECIALLY if they lost the fight.

  • jdbaird

    Just to clarify for some other national campaigns (I won’t name any names), this is an example of “taking the gloves off”.

  • giomerica


  • scrubjay

    “POSS OF STOLEN” — so in addition to the bar fight he had stolen property.
    30 seconds. That was a short knock-out.

    …SOLID AD ! West nails it again , Allen West for the cabinet position of Secretary of the Defence.”

  • Gotta love the fact that some young men go straight to their duty, while others are still wondering what they want to be when they make it to age 30.

  • Anyone that can’t see the honesty, integrity, intelligence, and civility of Allen West and understand that he is part of what makes this country great, is just too damned stupid to vote.

  • DebbyX

    That just made me 🙂

    How the West was won!

  • John3_3

    THATS what I’m talking about!! Go for the jugular!

  • CalCoolidge

    If they can’t get Paquiao and Mayweather in a ring together, I say they book a fight between Allen West and Bob Beckel.

    • AlabamaPatriot2

      That wouldn’t be a fight; that would be a workout for Allen, as he’d kick’s Beckel’s fat ass all over the place.

  • WOW- This may be the best ad of all time. I love everything Rep. Col. West stands for and is about, and this ad in 30 seconds tells anyone with at least half a brain that there is NO contest. There is no comparison- 1 MAN prepares him men to defend and fight for freedom; and 1 rich BOY parties at a club in Miami, gets crazy drunk, ejected, fights with police and arrested. Both are seeking the same seat in Congress. Patrick Murphy should just go and do some designer drugs and get drunk and let the MAN handle business in FL & DC. West needs to be Prez of USA someday. We need this MAN.

  • Pyrran

    oooh, baby that was a great ad!

    This ad epitomizes the difference between a liberal Democrat, and a Conservative Republican- aka leadership, integrity, virtue, courage, professionalism, and service to one’s country- not to one’s drunken self..
