U.S. Rep. Allen West came to Washington as part of the 2010 wave of Tea Party-backed candidates. He became known as aggressive and outspoken, but his tenure in Congress was short-lived. He recently conceded a close race for Florida´s 18th District. West sits down with host Michel Martin to reflect on his term and his outlook for the future. MARTIN: So what´s next for you? WEST: Look, you know, God closes a door so that he can open up greater doors. I will continue to, you know, stand up and fight for this country. That´s my goal.

If Colonel Allen West runs for President or Florida Govenor, I´ll campaign for him and vote for him, too! I´d like to see him escort that incompetent Obama out now and West be President now. I am exoressing my opinion as a constitutional right as an American citizen, before Obama wants to declare a part of the U.S. Costitutional Amendment illegal, he shouldn´t be able to do that, but I don´t doubt Obama would try it, and the airhead liberal journalists would support Obama doing that.

West is a terrific guy, but a one-term Rep with a history of public statements with which the media will strangle him hasn´t got a chance. And perhaps that´s the way it ought to be.

No more vanity candidacies, PLEASE!

Lincoln - the only Congressman who ended up in the WH had a run for Senate in between - that was the time of the famous Lincoln-Douglas debates. He lost - back when state legislatures chose the winner. Lots of favorable publicity though.

Otherwise, Congressmen only muddy up the water during the primaries and, if 2012 is used as an example, help make the eventual winner (who is usually a Governor or less often a Senator) weakened, battered and low on cash.

Congressman are inherently weak candidates as they are most likely unable to win a more desirable Governorship or Senate slot in a state-wide race. Among Dems they are vanity candidates who represent the unelectable left (Dennis the Menace for example). Avoid.

I love Allen West. He´s super smart, honest, courageous, and appreciates this country, which he has served in the military and in Congress, and he knows and appreciates the Constitution.
Interesting that 3 people mentioned so far--West, Rubio and J. Bush--are Floridians.

He is the BEST man for the job.
Romney should have had him as VP.
Obama has brought the race thing back again
so that any black should have been on the ticket. No matter what color West is the best man for the job.

#2 - Lincoln was elected to Congress in 1846 and pledged to serve only one term. Not sure why. He probably would have lost re-election anyway because he opposed the Mexican-American War and he was the only Whig in Illinois´ Congressional delegation.

Gotta love Florida. So far we have Rubio and West, now all we need is a woman, and we will have all the bases covered. The presidency is a big job and we could use 3 good people to fill it instead of one man who just votes "present".

West has been the target of the current administration, of Democrats, and of Republican RINOs.

There must be a reason.

He is so very intelligent and so very articulate and always has all the facts he needs to support his positions. Like Christie, he is unafraid to respond directly to attacks. I think he´d be a competent campaigner and an excellent President.

As an old angry white male whose bigotry and racist tenancies are obvious since I didn´t vote for The Won, I´ll make an exception and support Col. West.

Seriously, the man is unique in American politics because he calls it as he sees it and is a true patriot. Therefore, as a previous poster indicated, the MSM will twist his words from his previous sound bites in the hope of destroying a black who isn´t on the liberal plantation. It´s a shame, but I would still support him with my money and time because I believe in him.

I´m with #26. And I´d like to see him run in a third party. We will never know unless we try it, we´re losing elections anyway (usually by fraud), so what is there to lose. Maybe people are so fed up with the status quo a third party would fly. I´d vote for and support Allen West in a heartbeat.

Other than #6, etc., this thread is pretty much lemming-city. On the other hand, might as well go with Allen. It appears we will lose anyway unless a truly credible, charismatic candidate somehow appears.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request. The documents consists of a series of emails relating to the IRS’s treatment of applications for 501(c)(4) status from “Tea Party” or otherwise conservative organizations. I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed. The email below documents a call from the Department of Justice about whether non-profits that “lied” about doing political activity

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates. Below is a transcript of the relevant portion of the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC: AL SHARPTON:

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.
