Representative Allen West (that's Colonel, to you) spoke to the Palm Beach County GOP today, got caught in the heat of the moment and said a few choice things about those in Washington that have dedicated their lives to dismantling America into a banana republic-esque third world state.
Usually it's only those on the hard-left that hurl such "divisive" verbiage at their ideological foes...
(HuffPo) "We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, (audience boos) and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain't on the table," West said.
"Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America."
I'm sure this is going to make the circuits (over and over) on MSNBC tomorrow.
The Huffington Post calls West's proclamation a "humdinger." I'd say that he just simply said what millions upon millions of Americans think every single day.
Unfortunately those that wish to (and are) tearing this nation apart include progressive-statist members of the Republican party.
On this note, a top Romney crony is doing his best to push West out of the limelight (as in out of Congress).
