      The NATION does need him….and it was refreshing to see his ‘hair let down side. Too bad the Mrs. didn’t walk past when singing the end. She afterall is the one keeping him grounded….thank you God.! ! ! !

  • RighteousCrow_JustCaws

    What a treat! The real deal.

  • cheezwhizz

    Now someone rewrite the words to this song to dedicate it to Debby Washerman Putz,
    and call it
    ” PETTY WOMAN”

    • JRD1

      Thread winner!

      • cheezwhizz

        Petty woman, leading DNC
        Petty woman,
        the kind I like to kick
        Petty woman

        I don’t believe you, you’re not the truth
        No one could look as f#ked as you
        Pity

        Petty woman,
        won’t you lie to me?
        Petty woman,
        I couldn’t help but see
        Petty woman

        Then you look ugly as can be
        Are you lonely like mooooochy?
        Cow

        Petty woman,
        stop a while
        Petty woman,
        shut a while
        Petty woman,
        give some quiet to me

        Petty woman, yeah yeah yeah
        Petty woman, look my way
        Petty woman, say won’t stay with me

        ‘Cause I need you, I’ll bleat you right
        Come with me baby, be a swine tonight

        Petty woman,
        please walk on by
        Petty woman,
        don’t make me try
        Petty woman, please walk away, hey, okay

        If that’s the way it ‘s not be okay
        I guess I’ll go on home, it’s late
        There’ll be tomorrow night,
        but wait

        What do I see
        Why she walking back to me ?
        Oh she’s walking back to me

        Oh, nooooh, petty woman

    Oh man! That was great!!! Way to go Allen!! Whoo hoooo! You rock! :-D

    I wonder how many push ups we’ll all have to do when we spread this around?

  • 911Infidel

    Only a good man would stand up and sing (poorly) to a woman that he loves. Uh, for you libsticks, that would be his stellar wife.

  • 911Infidel

    I bet he can sing “Jody”.

  • FreeManWalking

    This is another reason we need West as Veep, Newt couldn’t carry a tune singing Happy B-Day.

    • PVG

      Good thing singing isn’t a requirement for veep or potus!

      • FreeManWalking

        Both did a better job than I. I can’t even carry a tune on a portable radio.

  • c4pfan

    Thanks Obama. Sorry, but I’m not interested in the singing.

  • Cindy09

    Waow!!! That was gooood!! :)

  • http://twitter.com/shelly99032 Shelly Sands

    Not bad but I’m biased :)

    • PVG

      Apparently! ;-}

  • Nukeman60

    Just like with policies, Rep. West can give a full song, while all Obama can do is a five word soundbite.

    Bring it on. West gets the nod, and Barry gets the hook. Sweet.

    Lol i wonder what Allen did to the guy that recorded this? poor guy……………..

    • toongoon

      He didn’t break his camera, that’s for sure. :-)

  • FreeManWalking

    Scoop since it is an open thread.
    I wanted to thank Rshill7 again for the article he linked to in the “Santorum Ad post”
    http://www.politijim.com/2012/02/dear-speaker-gingrich.html

    Rshill7 tell your wife a fan is grateful for her digging this up. and QUOTING you “How quickly we forget. How easily swayed we are. How willing to believe lies, and the “more electable” BS we are spoonfed.”

    I also read the other article ” Those Damn Narcissists – Like Newt” that I lifted these lines from:
    I mean, who the hell does Newt Gingrich think he is, thinking that he can orchestrate a take over of political power for conservatives when the country is mesmerized by a slick talking, slick looking liberal?
    …(Oh yeah. I forgot. He actually did that once).

    And why does he think only HE can get rid of a Democrat corruption, stop spending and actually start paying down the debt?
    (Oh yea. I forgot he did that too.)

    Grandiose thinkers like Bill Gates don’t even think they have to finish college to approach a highly technical industry like computers – much less do business with International Business Machines. I think I’ve told you that I know an investor who met a kid who couldn’t even conduct himself in a professional manner and tried to get an investment for his computer company WITHOUT EVEN WEARING A SUIT! Who the hell do these people think they are!!
    http://www.politijim.com/2012/02/those-damn-narcissists-like-newt.html?utm_source=blog&utm_medium=gadget&utm_campaign=bp_random

    This speech he gave in 94 after the election and prior to being sworn in as Speaker shows the visions he has for America, and even then he was asking for other to be with him because it takes more than voting for someone, going home and expecting them to make the changes with out your continued support.
    It is 46 minutes long and worth it.

    • drphibes

      These aren’t the lyrics to pretty woman, are they?

      • FreeManWalking

        Depends on the Woman that is being considered. I posted them thinking of America the Beautiful, what it could be not what is has become.

    • MaxineCA

      Thanks for re-posting, I must have missed it first time around. I just watched the last link (c-span), and you were right, an absolutely must see! I was amazed that Newt was dealing with the same issues 18 years ago, and had great solutions back then as he does today. Newt is still my first choice, Rick second, and the other 2 are “hold my nose to vote” candidates, which I’m tired of doing.

      • FreeManWalking

        Thank Rshill7 for bringing it up all together.
        That speech was awesome. It also speaks to the truth about the attacks of his part as a player when Reagan came to power too.
        I think what Newt tried to accomplish as Speaker has a lot to do with why the establishment GOP is against him now.

        • MaxineCA

          I think you are correct that the establishment (D’s & R’s all) fear him the most. Good enough for me! I was disappointed that we haven’t seen much of him lately but saw him tonight with Greta, and I think I understand his strategy. I sure wish Scoop would post that ’94 c-span speech. He solved problems then and I have confidence he would solve them now. Newt is one smart guy not only in the obvious ways, but is a planner and strategic thinker.

          • FreeManWalking

            Thanks Maxine: I totally agree. As for Scoop posting, it would be nice if he did, but like you I think most of us here are here because of the way Scoop runs the site.

    • sandynsavannah

      That c-span video….

      If Newt Gingrich will attack the task at hand as President the way he did when he became Speaker there is actually hope for the US…hope for us!

      he MUST be our nominee

      • FreeManWalking

        I think he will do just that, which is the reason he is my first choice!

  • toongoon

    He can sing anything he wants to as long as keeps talking up our constitution. He’s got my ear.

    • PVG

      AMEN!

  • drphibes

    I thought black people had rhythm?

    • crosshr

      lol

  • drphibes

    “And this one goes out to Debbie Wasserman Schultz!”….

    • tvlgds

      Debbie Washerwoman Shultz! UGH! What a nasty hag that is!

      • UpChuck.Liberals NoBO12

        I’d be too hard to sing with bile in your throat from saying her name.

    • http://twitter.com/Super_Sachiko Jasmine Clark

      OH MY GOSH HE SHOULD HAVE SAID THAT. SERIOUSLY

  • drphibes

    It’s uncanny. If you close your eyes and listen, you’d swear it wasn’t Roy Orbison.

    • StandingGround

      Hilarious!

  • tvlgds

    Well, he is a good sport! I just love this guy!

    • drphibes

      Yes, he truly is a gentleman and a scholar. All kidding aside, I love the man.

      • StandingGround

        Agreed.

  • tvlgds

    In my world, the Shark Tank is San Jose Arena! CHOMP! LOL!

    • cheezwhizz

      and they gonna lose tomorrow !!
      Boo sharks
      :D

      • tvlgds

        NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO :)

  • drphibes

    FREEBIRD!

  • SineWaveII

    Hmmm Allen West for president in 2016 or VP in 2012. ABO 2012

    That being said that performance made my ears bleed. It’s clear that he’s an amateur with no real training. He’s singing in the wrong key. He’s trying to sing in Roy Orbison’s key instead of his own. That’s a natural mistake that amateurs make. Don’t give up your day job Col West. You’re great at that.

    • UpChuck.Liberals NoBO12

      I’m glad he’s a much better American Patriot that he is a singer. That said, I’d love to see him a Secretary of Defense. THAT would frost a whole bunch of people, especially those that railroaded him for protecting his troops. Plus, IMNSHO be a huge moral boost to our troops.

  • DCGere

    He’ll treat us right!

  • MaxineCA

    Great to see Allen West having some fun. It takes a heck of a lot of bravery and self confidence to do something like that. (I know I wouldn’t attempt to sing in front of a crowd.)

    What a great man who can also show his down to earth side, which we haven’t seen in the past.

  • Steven

    Allen West can’t sing. With that said, I wouldn’t mind seeing him on the GOP ticket. Pick Rick! Santorum/West 2012!

  • http://twitter.com/Super_Sachiko Jasmine Clark

    hrigrwghliwnwilniwlgngenwl ahahahahaha i am dying!! i can’t believe it!! this is so weird and hilarious! what is with all these politicians singing. herman cain sings, obama sings, romney was singing america the beautiful… now this. each time it is VERY funny. *rolls on floor*

    • drphibes

      Yeah, Obama is pretty good. All our guys are tone deaf.

  • TerryinGeorgia

    I love it.

  • sara holy land

    HE IS GREAT

  • wodiej

    GO ALLEN WEST!!!!! I wonder if American Idol will have him come sing!

  • RKflorida

    What did he do with the money?

  • JayGatsby88

    Damn, got to love those Black politicians and that inherited soulfulness that comes with it. Ever need a morale boost, just sing an old motown joint

    • MiketheMarine

      Some will think that is insensitive of you but half my family is from South Western Louisiana and I know what you are talking about. I learned to drink and listen to jazz in Preservation Hall, in New Orleans.

  • anneinarkansas

    Love this man…eat your heart out Obama!

  • TruLevinian

    Gonna drop ya for pushups! LOL! Isn’t this guy just great?

  • BarbaCat

    Aw, Alan West is just the kind of real people we need.
    I mean, how uplifting, unselfconscious – in the face of all that’s so seriously going on…is this?

    What an admirable man!

    Love Thad McCotter on the guitar in the background.

  • aZjimbo

    I love this guy and now he shows another side of him. Way to go Allen.

  • DebbyX

    Good job Col. West. Orbison is tough to replicate.
