Col. West- Leadership in Waiting

I just can't get enough of this guy, Col. Allen West.

West did a piece on Red Country today that speaks volumes to any red blooded American, who knows what it truly means to know and understand America for what it has been and what it should be.

The piece was directed at, and rips a new one, to the Obama Administration, Maxine Waters and the Congressional Black Caucus.

Here are some excerpts:
Friday, we received the news that there was not one new net job created in the United States of America. In other words, we have stagnated the investment, innovation, and ingenuity of the entrepreneurial spirit that has made our nation a leader in free market and private sector growth
Previously, we have discussed the over-regulatory environment emanating from Washington and this Obama Administration. It has been evidenced in the nearly 600 new regulations issued in the month of July, with an estimated compliance cost of $10 billion.
We have heard enough about “investing” in green energy jobs. This is evidenced in a green energy company, Solyndra, praised a year ago by President Obama as a model green energy company in California,  just announcing bankruptcy. Solyndra was a recipient of stimulus finding, one of the top 5 “green energy” companies.
...We have a President who is unwilling to admit his economic policies have failed, and it is time to pivot in a completely different direction…a lesson he could learn from former President Bill Clinton.
Therefore, what is the purpose of the speech next week on the grand jobs plan which we have been waiting for with baited breath since the Big Black Bus tour? We have sat and counted the days and hours until the speech while the President relaxed in Martha’s Vineyard, truly a place representative of America.
What will be the purpose of this address, since the President wants all of Congress to sit attentively? Will we finally receive a written plan, or must we again seek to “score” or evaluate another speech? One thing that has already been declared is that after the speech on Thursday, the President will be heading back to the White House to begin working to resolve this situation.  Actually, no, he will go back out on the campaign trail Friday.
The question is, will he take the taxpayer-funded private jet or the Big Black Bus? 
 It seems my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus have been reading Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals, and are seeking to apply his Rule #13 tactic. This baseless attack upon the constitutional conservative grassroots movement called the TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party has reached a new low of unreasonable desperation.
 What person would not agree with the principles of efficient and constitutional limited government, fiscal responsibility, national security, and free market/free enterprise? It appears Congresswomen Maxine Waters and Frederica Wilson along with Congressman Andre Carson do not.
Perhaps my colleagues, who were out this past month across America conducting “job fairs,” should closely examine failed economic, monetary, tax, and regulatory policies emanating from this current Obama Administration, rather than point fingers.
And oh, by the way, while the CBC was out conducting these “job fairs” the unemployment rate for black Americans rose from 15.9% to 16.7%.
I do believe a standing round of applause is in order here!

You're right, Silver. And the most disciplined makes them, IMO, the best of the rest.

Chris, I like how he is really unafraid to speak his mind openly and honestly.
