West: Obama is an intransigent liberal progressive socialist who is also Marxist

Gosh I love Allen West! In a recent interview, responding to the claims and demands Obama made on Friday from his bully pulpit, West says this:

The President’s concern is about getting reelected. The President’s concern is that he is an intransigent, liberal, progressive socialist who is also Marxist because of the class warfare rhetoric that he espouses.And I think that when you heard him on Friday and the more he comes out and talks, the more truly out of touch and incompetent he seems.

He goes on to say that when Obama claimed that 80% of Americans wanted their taxes raised, he wonders if Obama realizes that 47% of wage-earning American households don’t even pay taxes. This statistic alone points out one of two things – Obama’s incompetence or his lies. I’ll go with lies, because that’s what it is really. Obama can’t be honest and expect to get his radical transformational agenda completed with the American people clapping for him along the way.

West goes on to point out the same thing that Beck pointed out this morning, that the top 1% pay around 38% of the tax burden and the top 5% pay a little over 50% of the tax burden in this country. In an effort to substantiate both Beck and West’s claim, I did a little digging and could only find the latest tax data as of 2008:

What’s cool about this chart is that it shows the income cutoffs for each percentage group. As of 2008, the bottom 50% made $33k or less and only paid 2.7% of the tax burden. And just as West and Beck pointed out, the top 1% do pay almost 40% and what’s even more astonishing is that the top 50% pay virtually the whole kit and caboodle. Talk about a tax loophole!



***

West also responded to Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee’s race based remarks on Friday, saying that opposition to the President is because his policies have failed and that it has nothing to do with this skin color:

Attacking this President is not attacking his skin color. It’s attacking his failures. He has a vision for this country that is anathema to the vision of the founding fathers, in our belief in individual responsibility and accountability and our free markets and free enterprise system.

I have to say I love the blunt force honesty that Allen West espouses. I get a thrill up my leg every time I hear him call the President out on his anti-American views. It’s just the kind of honesty that this country needs and more Republicans need to follow his example.

My only hope is that Allen West can stop holding back and say what he’s really thinking.

West needs to be part of the 2012 ticket. His take no prisoners speaking style and resume of walking the walk is exactly what this country needs after suffering through the embarrassment of incompetence and gutlessness that is Barack Obama. A real leader and honorable man like West is what made this country great in the past and could make it great again but he has to be given the opportunity.

Im sorry but squishy nothings like Mitt Romney are part of the problem. Its time for an unapologetic conservative who isnt afraid to say what he means to take the wheel of the party and then the country and turn this ship around before we hit the iceberg coming up on us real quick.

Obama has no interest, let alone desire, to make America economically sound and prosperous.. Only to plunder it’s resources and wealth, and redistribute it all, to everyone, and anyone, he deems should have it..  And why, because Obama, is a devout and committed ideologically indoctrinated Anti-American, Liberal Socialist-Marxist, and his hard line zeal and unbudgingness in this area, to compromise, makes him an extremist / zealot, and is the reason, basis, and premise, for his unaltering of his Keynesian Socialist-Marxist Policies and Agenda, especially in the face of such massive criticism of him, and his Keynesian Socialist-Marxist Policies and Agenda.. ie; of his Spending, Taxing, and over Regulating American Businesses, through his massive govt. buildup and control of the US Capitalist system and Economy, and of the American people, either directly or indirectly, to the point of Bankruptcy and Insolvency.. by the American People, via the last election in Nov. 2010, the media,… Read more »

Eight years of Palin then her VP wins, giving us us eight years of West.

The RINO and Progressive parasites will be ripped from our jugulars and left to wither and die. Has America ever been free of these bloodsucking Statists for 16 straight years?

No more apologizing to limp wristed European socialists, bending over for the UN, cowering to Islamist goons, tin cupping the Chicoms, bowing to the Saudis, swooning over tin horn dictators, shredding the Constitution, fattening union thugs, redistributing our wealth, and….no more damn lectures from this pathetic, pompus, pesudo-intellectual, marxist, punk excuse for a President.

Talk about a new world order!

My American dream – exceptionalism, innovtion and capitalism unleashed.

I say it about 100 times a day in some form or another, but I’m nobody, it is delightful to see it said by an elected official! I know he has refused to repeatedly, but man, i truly wish he would reconsider and run for President in 2012. He would decimate Obama, and the entire left would pee their collective pants, West is a man who truly commands respect and has a deeper understanding of international events than most politicians and especially on the middle east & islam. HE has the kind of leadership America and the free world needs to remedy all of the damage that has been wrought by Obama.

A “liberal” arts education must not include any basic math requirements any more. The O’crats just as well be talking about light years as $ & cents, they’re in outer lala land about deficits and budgets. Mr. West made a hole-in-one on this one, he sees through all the “transparency” and calls a race card a race card when he sees one being played.

Once again West tells the unvarnished, unbiased truth about the big red O’. He body slams him verbally each and every time out. I’ve never heard O’ say one word about West though. With as many knock-out punches as West has landed and O’ still tottering about the ring, what I would truly love seeing is a two-sided match between the two, either verbally, or physically.

I hate what O’ and his progressive minions, as well as his marionette stringpullers are attempting in this country. It can’t stand, it just can’t. If it does, and if this clown gets reelected, it’ll be time for Jesus to put on his mount of olive shoes.

I’m ready. Maranatha!

Let West thrash him in a verbal match.

We will leave his physical thrashing to Betty White.

Obama lies because his followers don’t care about facts, they just like to hear him talk and… hope. I think this just proves the ignorance of the majority of people when it comes to macro economics.

Have to agree with you TRS, the president lies. Matter of fact he lies so much about so much it won’t be long and his 80% figure will represent those who also know he lies.

Sccop, that chart needs to go viral. I’d like to see it put on billboards all over the country. People need to know the facts to counter the lies they are being told.

Everybody here who has a facebook page should put that chart on it.
