Even though he has disappointed us, Allen West (R-FL) is still one of the bright stars of congress with a potentially exciting future ahead of him (as long as he sticks to his beliefs).
The DC has West's shot across the bow of the GOP's pathetic, corrupt, inane, throw-in-the-towel, fold-like-a-cheap-suit congressional leadership:
Rep. Allen West said Friday morning that he’s steamed at how the House GOP leadership did not “stand against” what he calls the “pathetic policy” that came out of the payroll tax cut extension last month.Allen West is correct. Unfortunately this is not the first blatant infraction and disregard that Boner, Cantor and the other republican leadership half-wits have committed against the Tea Party and the general public that put them in the majority only last year. They were given power because We the People resoundingly stood up against the Obama Machine's historic overreach.
Asked during a radio interview with WMAL‘s Morning Majority host Brian Wilson about how he feels about Speaker of the House John Boehner, West said, “I was very upset about what happened with this payroll tax cut extension.”
The Florida Republican complained about how the House GOP leadership “sold us down the road” and ditched “a good piece of legislation that took care of it for one year,” by accepting the Senate’s “two-month extension which was absolutely pathetic policy.”
“I mean, we can’t do tax policy that way,” he said.
West said he plans to make it an issue when he returns to Congress.
But they have failed even more epically than I thought possible. They must step down -- and particularly the weak-knee'd Boner -- and thus make way for individuals that care more about the nation's future than New York Times headlines and the DC statist spin machine.
The biggest threat to this nation now is not a socialist president, but rather an "opposition" party that "opposes" the big-government demo-socialists yet just hands them everything they want on a silver platter. Maybe this is how things always have happened in DC but given our dire national circumstances today, we cannot afford "business as usual" in the Republican party.
