Representative Col Allen West gave a fiery speech last night at the Lincoln Day Dinner in Florida.
And WHAT a speech it was. Watch.
West was telling Obama, Reid, Pelosi, (all) to just try and bring down America any further.
The man has the same fire in his belly as Newt does to right the American ship.
He might also be furious with the establishment GOP for what they are doing to his district.
Little reported news on what I am about to present here, but need your help to spread the word.
It turns out that a Romney spokesman is spearheading an effort to redistrict West's district out of existence through the Florida legislation, as soon as possible.
After last night’s [Jan. 26] Republican Presidential debate, the candidates’ respective spinmeisters made their cases to the media as to why their guy won the debate. One of Governor Mitt Romney’s spokesmen was Florida Representative Will Weatherford, and during the course of his remarks in the “Spin Room”, he shed a very dim light on the ongoing redistricting process in the Florida Legislature….
West’s congressional district inexplicably sheds the most out support as compared to all other incumbent Republican and Democrat Congressman. A few weeks back we quoted an unnamed legislator saying that, “Allen West was screwed”, a statement which was originally made about made five months before the purposed maps were made public, leading insiders to believe that the fix was in against Allen West. But in light of Weatherford’s comment, it is increasingly clear that this is a fait accompli.
According to Weatherford, those preliminary maps will not change- at the most, any additional changes would be minimal, and those changes would not make any appreciable difference from the preliminary maps. In addition, Weatherford stated that a deal was struck between him, Senate President Mike Haridopolos, and Senator Don Gaetz to finalize these maps and push them through as soon as possible.
Weatherford tried to hide behind a need to comply with federal law, but that’s obviously a spin since there could have been many ways to comply yet not sacrifice West!!!
Romney isn't behind this; it has to do with internal Florida politics which I do not understand.
Parties don't like rebels seems to be a good starting point. If the GOP continues to churn out mush it will be to their detriment. We will spit them out.
Allen West is the leader that America needs!
Would someone please tell me how the state of Florida can produce such brilliant people like LTC West and Marco Rubio - and a wingnut like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz!!!
Kurt, I never made the claim that it was Romney's doing, but his Florida spokesperson is spearheading the move.
What you are seeing is the Establishment GOP in Florida and in Washington trying to make the Conservatives obsolete. Taking away one of the most conservative/Tea party representative districts in Florida is rebellious unto itself.
So very true, AP, and they are trying to do away with folks like West to make the GOP more mainstream. I'd say f*** THAT!
Firebird, just look at the 2000 election. That state has been messed for quite sometime.
Allen West is Outstanding. I hope the R nominee has enough sense to pick him as his VP running mate. Besides his wonderfulness, it would totally get rid of the race card the dimwit dems will be throwing left and right.
