Quote o' the Day Award Winner: Allen West

Interviewed on The Laura Ingraham Show, Rep. Allen West (R-FL) wins our coveted Quote o' the Day Award.*

On Michelle Obama's military outreach campaign:

"I think it's part and parcel with the fact that you heard the president announce his campaign, getting that kicked off, and of course you have to try to go out there and garner votes from what is a very conservative group of individuals--that's the United States military...

...60 percent of [military] fatalities in Afghanistan have occurred under his [Obama's] presidency... if this was the Bush administration, the media would be screaming bloody murder. But, of course, once again we see the 'Get Out of Jail Free' pass for President Obama."

On Austan Goolsbee's remark that S&P made a "political judgement":

"They don't want to hear the truth. ... They're so used to having the cheering, adoring mainstream media that is nothing more than their own cast of cheerleaders, much the same as an episode of Glee, and that's what they appreciate more than having real individuals sitting back and assessing this economic situation...

...What you continue to see is a third world dictator-like arrogance, that's what I saw in that speech [by Obama] last week. And look, Laura, to borrow a phrase from Reverend Jeremiah Wright, the chickens are coming home to roost...

...This whole talk about shared prosperity--that really gives me the goosebumps because I'm starting to believe that a community organizer is nothing but a low-level socialist agitator.


We need more leaders like Allen West. These are statesmen (and women) who truly do speak truth to power. They stand for liberty against an out-of-control administration that can't or won't abide by our nation's highest law.

As an aside, how does a Bachmann-West ticket sound? Or a West-Bachmann ticket? Or a Palin-West ticket? You get the picture.

* At last check, QOTD winners receive two snow tires and a year's supply of Rice-a-Roni ("The San Francisco Treat").

He does sound pretty good, doesn't he?

How's the MSM handling him, if at all?

@Joan - with kid gloves, thus far.

I would really love to see him put his hat in the ring for '12.

Palin/West 2012 is on the back of my truck

I'd love either a Palin/West ticket, or a Cain/West (or vice versa) ticket.

I love Allen West and think he is exactly what our country needs to bring us back from the brink, but he insists he won't run for POTUS in 2012. I would do nearly anything to see him debate Captain WTF just once! He's decimate Barry and TOTUS would probably self destruct in shame.
