Allen West: It’s about time we change the leadership in DC

A lot of this interview is par for the course, where West defends the leadership in this current crisis and also explains what he doesn’t like about this deal.

But when Greta starts complaining that the House waited until the last minute to get this done, just to create another extension because they always disagree, West said this:

Well I tell ya Greta, give me the opportunity to be in leadership in Washington DC and I think you’d see something different. Because coming out of the military, we didn’t go home until the mission was complete. So maybe that’s what the American people need to understand. It’s about time we take a chance with some of the young leaders that we have sent to Washington DC and move away from this establishment rhetoric and this game that they play in Washington DC.

Exactly. Put West in as Speaker and we’ll see real leadership. That would be an awesome day.
