Has he spoken out about Obama not being eligible to sit as president? I don't remember hearing that and until I do West is another big talking Republican who won't truly stand up for We the People. He is better than most Republicans but stops short of being what is needed. Anyone who shies away from the eligibility issus does not have the strength needed for the future of America.
Bob according to you, no one in this country is worthy of office.
I didn't say he wasn't worthy of office, I said he needs to stand up to the biggest threat our nation has, and that is obama not being eligible to hold office.
That is true Bob. I fully agree with you on that.
With all due respect, Twana I don't know if that's a fair indictment of Bob. West started out saying all the right things, and you probably recall I was an early on supporter of West until he joined up with the Congressional Black Caucus. That move was an indication, at least to me, that he, like many who move to Washington, has no problem joining with those whom he feels can do him some good, even if such action brings his judgement into question. The CBC is certainly not in the business of representing ALL the people. It is there for a particularly disgusting purpose and that is to represent one particular segment of the population over the rest. I'd be just as adamantly against a Congressional Italian Caucus or a Congressional Irish Caucus, or whatever. Agenda driven groups of that sort are not what our Representatives should be about! West talks a good talk and I was once strongly for him, but when he joined the CBC he aligned himself with some of the most despicable individuals in Congress. With that move he voluntarily changed his designation from simply American to "hyphenated" American supporting an agenda which places one group ahead of all the others. Rationalizations are rampant, but the fact is the CBC's goal is not equal representation, it is preferential treatment for a particular race. The persons we elect, especially to the two highest offices in the land, should be for ALL the people and their allegiance to organizations with an agenda other than that makes them immediately suspect. Just my take on things.
You’re right Bob, if The Constitution mattered upholding Her is the first thing any normal politician would do… but when there’s no one left to choose from all We can hope for is the best that’s available… in other words no one who truly represents We The People is running nor wants to be part of a freak show, therefore especially no one representing We The People is on the candidate list.
…today’s republican politics is no different from big business, all they serve is BS …not unlike artificial flavoring.
A man who lies as West has lied to get elected by campaigning and promising to VOTE NO on raising the debt limit is a lying fraud and political hack who said what he thought the voters wanted to hear to get elected and once elected he betrayed his constituents by VOTING TO RAISE THE DEBT LIMIT AND HE ALSO VOTED FOR NADD 2012 which declared martial law and war against the American people making West a lying traitor!!! As Bob Russell has correctly pointed out this great "patriot" West has not called for the wickedly evil usurpers removal and has shied away from the Constitutional issue of obongos eligibility because West cares not for the Constitution and the rule of law!!! His actions, votes and lack of speaking out clearly reveal this decorated soldier to be a fraud of a congressman who cares not for the Constitution and the rule of law as his being a typical neoconservative who view the Constitution as an outdated document that gets in the way of the democrats and neoconservatives plans and continuation of their two party dictatorship!!!
I'm in for Allen West, he is a man that really get's it. He will go far and people will get behind him.
A true America, to his core. There would be the pride that would stop the division and unite us. Not based on color, but on principal and love of freedom. He knows our Constitution and would uphold it.
I like Allen West more and more everyday.
i've been a supporter of allen west since i first heard of him in 2008!!!
I am just waiting to hear how Mr.West will respond when he is asked about West Point being "requested"? to dis-invite Lt.Gen William Boykin as a speaker. Seems the leftist 501C-3 group VOTE VETS.com says Mr.Boykin does not reflect Army Values .That he harms our relations with the Islamic Street. That if h e speaks and the Cadets listen to him it will harm our future leaders.Seen such posted on the Blaze earlier today.If Mr.Boykin does not reflect the direction the Army is being led now-- Might this lowly former enlisted man suggest they are being led the wrong direction by leaders who will not defend these United States not the principles that made our Country FREE.Give me Lt.Gen William Boykin, A Col Allen West-- and men like "Captain America" (the honorable Roy S.Moore of Ala. and Retired Marine Officer Ronald D.Ray and a few good leaders like these And there might be hope for America.But only if we change the direction of this present rout.
Oh lest I forget-- I agree with congressman West in this latest comment.
I agree with you. I was hoping this Discussion was about Col West telling b o, h c, biden, pelosi, reid, et al to get the H out of here! I don't usually like to hear that language, but with that one speech at the FL GOP Lincoln day dinner (also on the Blaze today) I was ready to vote any ticket which would put him in office OR the Justice Dept.
As for Gen Boykins detractors there's a link in the Blazes comment board to who they are,
It seems mostly Lib's but then the Dem Presidentian Candidates have all supported their founding as has the Lib(ertarian) Ron Paul.
