Allen West: Obama intentionally killing the economy



This is an interesting interview that starts out with a word game and gets to more substantive questions about half way through. But my favorite part was when West was asked if Obama is just inept or if he is intentionally harming the economy. West says he’s definitely doing this on purpose and I love the fact that he didn’t play the “we can’t criticize Obama’s motives” game that some politicians want to play:

It warms the cockles of me heartsie to see so many people waking up to Obamageddon. Especially bright honorable black folks. Blacks that might not be so on the ball need to see that being black doesn’t mean you have to be a democrat and to fall for the manipulations that that party has put them through since they started voting strong in the 60’s.

Now, the libs will start bailing on the black voters since the race card is breaking and hispanic voters outnumber black voters. The same old manipulations and dogged formulas will be put into play. Starting with allowing illegal immigrants to have pieces of the pie our native kids and people aren’t allowed to get–for the votes. How about becoming LEGAL? Put some skin in the game if you want to play.

go get more high cupcake, you are bordering on retardism. Billymn, what are you–like 15? Still living at home with mom? You certainly don’t know any history. You would be the first one to kiss socialist hind end, turn in your fellow man and grovel for your tidbits. It’s people who think like this who have no clue of reality and just talk from their ass–fine for a freak show, but not good for daily consumption.

Oh, but I have been to foreign countries. How about Japan, Korea, and Germany? I spent 27 years in the Army. I am a patriot. But, having worked a total of 43 years, I need my Social Security and military retirement. Being on a ‘fixed income’ when retired. I’ve never drawn unemployment. I don’t appreciate you, or anyone else spreading lies about America, or telling me to ‘wake up’. Vote the Traitor-in-Chief OUT OUT OUT before he destroys our country. JW B…. ?

Obonzo, the Traitor/Liar/Poser/Socialist-in-Chief, is definitely doing his absolute best to ruin the economy, and ruin the United States. He isn’t stupid, he’s a fake, a TRAITOR. He and all his Democratic idiot cronies are trying to spend this country to death, and doing a damn good job. He needs to be gone, by whatever means is necessary. WHATEVER means.

I believe Mr. West would serve the nation better by remaining in FL, at least for this next term. This is going to be an ugly election no mater who the GOP candidate is, and he’s too valuable to place at risk this early in his career, I think.

Ms. Garofalo is now stating that those who support Mr. Cain are racist. Do we think Mr. West would fare any better? An independent-thinking Black republican is anathema to the left. They are worse than devils and must be politically annihilated. After all, we don’t want our Black democrats getting any ideas, do we?

Let’s get this miscreant out of the White House and repair some of the damage he’s done. It’s going to be a tough fight and not a short one, either. There’s plenty of time for Mr. West to advance politically without getting into the fray prematurely.

I draw a distinction between his “wanting” to destroy the economy and his being “willing” to do so. Either way, though, our Leader is focused on a vision in which there is no place for the American economy as we know it.

The closer he gets to personal political obliteration, the more actively he presses his insane agenda. This solar subsidy business is merely one visible part of his program.

In an aside, Secretary Chu is a walking dead man; he’s roadkill. He will be sacrificed in a heart beat to buy a bit more time for BHO to press forward with his obscene “Hope and Change”.

Thirteen more months of this? God help us all.

I think West is correct, but Obama is not acting alone, and there are RINO Republicans helping him as well. They want to keep the statuesque of a powerful central government and bank because it is profitable.

Seeing that I have fellow Americans who see the sad truth about our Traitor-in-Chief gives me a glimmer of hope. But with so many sleep walking or blind by choice to the truth, it looks grim indeed for nation. If ever we were be “the home of the brave” it must be now.

If only we could start a national movement to ignore the mainstream media we might be able to marginalize these Socialist co-conspirators. If their viewership drastically declines we hit them here it hurts – their bottom line. If we reject any feigned pivot to the middle – by them or their messiah, we might have a chance.

bush is not president anymore…….. bush never blamed anyone for anything whether it was someone elses fault or not. he was a leader. leaders deal with criticism and blame and do what they believe is best. they dont blame everyone for their problems. he says he has a great jobs bill… hes going to raise taxes and pay for a 1 year growth in union jobs that states wont be able to pay for next year. thats what the stimulus did. it hired union workers and now states are laying them off because we cannot afford them. its called FAILURE.

West: “The president is a Marxist because he believes in the separation of classes.” By definition classes are separated dummy. Apparently Marxism is now defined as allowing the top tax rate to rise from 35% to 39% and reducing preferential rates for capital gains and dividends. Reagan eliminated preferential treatment for capital gains in 1986. The top rate under Reagan was 50% until 1986. One way or the other, Reagan is a Marxist according to Allen West. Allen West is a nut. He was kicked out of the Army and now with right wing support he is the ultimate Uncle Tom. Let us look at his supporters, they are white gun carrying neo-christians who like the death penalty and letting the uninsured die. Further proof anyone who calls Obama a :country-destroying marxist and Obama hates this country and wants to incite a civil war” is in a fact a racist… Read more »

You are either incredibly innocent or unbearably dull witted. I have lived in or worked in over 30 countries around the world. None are anywhere near the standard of living with experience in this country. None can compete with our clean air, water, fertile soil and freedoms to live as we want. None have our resources nor our willingness to sacrifice for others. If you think they have it so good in other countries, why are you still here. Please exercise your freedom to leave at the first opportunity.

It is you who is soooo wrong. Were the 30 countries you were in happened to be in Africa or the Middle East. I guess you have never gone to Canada, England, Germany, Japan. Hong Kong, Australia, etc. and seen their standard of living. Otherwise, you can never make such an uninformed statement that they are nowhere near our standard of living.

And I say to you, please exercise your freedom if you don’t like Social Security, Medicare, unimployment ins. I dare you to turn them down. Of course you never will.

Mr. West is an intelligent, articulate, educated and experienced man who hust happens to be black-skinned. So is Herman Cain. I am willing to bet that if I shake their hands my white skin will not rub off on their hand not will thie black-skin rub off on my white hand. But I will also bet if we were able to sit down to share a few beers and ideas in my back yard, we would have a tremendous amount of common sense exchanged. The very things Mr. West stated in this interview have been espoused by Mr. Cain. I would be proud to have either on of these men serve as our President instead of Zerobama so long as they stick to the principles we have heard coming from them. Yes, being President is a big job. For some the job is too big. I refer you to Zerobama… Read more »

West has got it mostly correct. May be that the evil of Obama is being underestimated. Susspect that the N.C. Gov. Bev Purdue may be just running interference for the forthcomming attempt to turn the country into a Venezuela type Socialist dictatorship..
Striking that a suggestion by a sitting governor to suspend the U.S. Constitution doesn’t wake up the national media.
I only hope that our military remember that they have not sworn an oath to support the president, but rather they have sworn to “support and defend the constitution” even if the enemy turns out to be a domestic enemy occupying 1600 P. Ave.

Obama is not a socialist. He is a fascist. Socialists believe the government owns the means of production, including the profits therefrom if any. Fascists believe the government controls everything, but private corporatists reap profits. Obama is a fascist.

The Failed President is both a liar and loser. The petulant child in a mans suit is destroying America and must be defeated in 2012. Secret Service personnel have stated he is a dishonest person and his wife hates white people. He is a very dangerous man and ignores the law in general, the will of the American people, Congress, and the Constitution. There are no longer massive adoring crowds to deceive. There are no more titles to capture. For the first time in Barack Obama’s life, he is accountable, and upon his shoulders rests the lives and fortunes of millions in the United States and the world. He has repeatedly shown that he cannot deal with, and will never be able to shoulder responsibility, as he is at his core self-absorbed, dishonest, a liar, and without coherence in his personal beliefs and convictions. Obama has never stood for individualism,… Read more »

Courtney (excuse me for correcting the spelling of your name) – I know you THINK you know what you’re talking about dear, but you really need to do some homework. Take a real history course at a real school and find out that MLK was a Republican and it was the REPUBLICANS that fought FOR civil rights and DEMOCRATS that fought against it. One of your Democrat heroes during the Civil Rights Era was asked why he had turned from the Democrat agenda to support the Civil Rights fight and he said, “We’ll have these n*ggers voting Democrat for the next 200 years!” Why don’t you google that and see who said it. And btw – they were RIGHT! African American Democrats are pawns and they’ve been duped and don’t even know it. Allen West is courageous and honest and does NOT back down.

Obama and the leftist are purposely working to destroy the economy. The more damage they can inflict the more chance they have of gaining MORE control.

Fabricate a crisis then come to save us all….

Like Rush has stated many times… Obama acts like he just walked into the room and has no responsibility with what is going on at the present..

He plays like he has just shown up and is going to save America .

This summed up a lot of what I was thinking about Rep. West. It seems like there might be some ideas in his head, but they keep getting pushed aside in favor of inflammatory sound bites and incoherence. Rep. West has offered nothing and hasn’t introduced not one bill when it comes to the issues as it pertains to the economy vis-a-vie African Americans. Allen is a liar, a fraud and a racist just like his KKK supporters!

Courtney, you are a perfect example of someone who posts comments based on ignorance. You might want to do some actual research before you post from now on. The KKK and its supporters are and always have been DEMOCRATS. West is a Constitutional Conservative Republican.

And FYI – playing the race card has been done so many times that no one cares anymore. It’s the classic last gasp effort of those who have already LOST the argument. So put your race card away and come back after you’ve done some homework.

Either you know 3seven77 is right and are race baiting, or you have never actually researched this.

The KKK in America was universally bigoted. Their primary target was Catholics and Jews. They openly campaigned and held office on these beliefs and in the 1920’s they even controlled the political system of Colorado, where the Catholic Church mounted a campaign to remove them.

http://ccpl.lib.co.us/History_Old/KKK/KKK.html

I can tell you first hand that where the KKK went after blacks in the South, they were primarily from the Democratic Party. Where I lived as a child in Alabama, the Republicans were and had long been helping blacks start businesses and schools. It was well known that the KKK wore hoods so no one would recognize the very same politicians who were by day demonizing the Republicans and claiming to be the champions of blacks.

The KKK is only considered to be “right-wing” by moronic liberals and the equally boneheaded SPLC. The same thing with neo-nazis, trolls like you seem to be confused about the fact that they are Nation Socialists. That said you’re history here, but look on the bright side, it will give you time to learn some real history.

Allen West is spot on as usual.

Not that I think Obama is any kind of a great mind or even a great speaker (IMHO), but this is all definitely on purpose and he has not been inept at all in achieving his goals. He has brought massive socialism to our nation in every direction. It’s not fun for us average citizens along for the downhill ride but he’s getting it done.
