Betrayal. Sounds pretty harsh, doesn't it? Unfortunately, it applies quite properly to Allen West's failure to stand by his campaign rhetoric when he was trying to get elected to his current office in the House.
31 JULY 2011
FACT: Congressional bill #1 in 2011 was a vote to defund Obamacare. Allen West did not support it and voted NO.
FACT: Allen West voted to continue FUNDING for the fraud that is Pigford. [Editor: i.e. he voted for race, not reason.]
FACT: Rep Kings Bill to defund the Libyan war and call Obama to task on his violation of the war powers act. Allen
West voted no. He voted to fund Obama’s war.
FACT: Allen West disparaged, the Tea Party with name calling. Sure he twisted himself in knots saying people
misunderstood. But I heard him. There was no misunderstanding.
FACT: Allen West voted to support the raising of the Debt Ceiling. A specific platform plank he used as a talking
point in his election effort at 36 different venues in speeches. He promised on 36 different public occasions to vote
AGAINST raising the debt limit and borrow more money.
Principles matter, perhaps not to progressives who are comfy in the land of hypocrisy and lies, but a conservative,
a real patriot, should never be comfy there or even know where the flippin place is. It shouldn’t even be on their
"Steadfast and loyal," Col. West? Really? You were elected to take a stand against the Obama regime, sir. Remember?
What happened to that?
I need a drink. Make that several. :( (h/t Wraith)
He is a politician, just like Obama. Makes claims to become elected that he abandons once he has won the prize he sought. I promise you he would do the same in any attempt to become President. Forget Allen West as a candidate for any further office.
