If all of our elected representatives were as knowledgeable, wise, honorable and articulate as this man, we would have very little to worry about. Kudos to his parents and honor to him for standing strong for truth.
Most of the old guard Republicans want a win in 2012.
I think they finally are seeing that this is serious...the fate of our country is at stake.
When they realize, that another crusty old retread is not going to get enough votes to defeat Obama...I think they just might open the purse for LtCol. West.
They did it for Eisenhower.
It was serious back then too.
They can do it again.
Michele Bachman's leadership skills leave a lot to be desired. She should have fought Boehner for the leadership position she wanted in the new congress instead of backing down. In other words, her staff should have sent out feeler's to know if Bachman had a chance at victory before exposing her to failure. Her televised response to the State of the Union was pathetic and unprofessional. She also went to New Hampshire and made another huge gaffe. Bachman has plenty of potential but she needs to get all of her ducks in a row before she fires off another salvo unprepared. I want my leaders to not be unexposed on their left flank. She needs to hire new people. Whoever is managing her office doesn't cross their t's and dot their i's. If she manages to win the nomination she will get crucified unmercifully. The media is salivating because they known that it will be like shooting fish in a barrel. Somebody call her office now. The woman is an exploding time bomb. She has a fantastic message but her delivery is not well thought out. If she wants to play in the big leagues she has to improve her game big time. Fire Bachman's staff now! A leader is only as good as the people who work for them and a true leader is well aware when they staff isn't delivering the goods.
You appear to be a big Bachman fan. If you want her to win instead of being a sycophant you will tell the truth to get your man elected.
Want proof? Reagan knew he had to fire his staff during the primary and regroup and he did just that. Bachman's staff are bush league, lose em!
Yes, you've nailed it. They pretend to be 'no-spin' journalists by being 'tough' on the Right and sycophantic towards the Left
Somebody NEEDS to be asking people hard questions, and I think Greta VS does a good job. Alan West looks BEST when asked hard questions, because he knows the answers. Don't forget, as a reporter, it's her JOB to be asking the questions. I only wish more would do that!
My favorite = about Jeremiah Wright. Obama either believed him, or spent 20 years in a low level, REM sleep. That nailed it! You go, Alan West!
THE ULTIMATE FALL OUT AND PAIN FROM THE VAST VENOMOUS LEGISLATION; THE HISTORICALLY INCOMPARABLE CORRUPTION AND INCREDIBLE FRAUD VISITED UPON OUR NATION BY PRESIDENT OBAMA AND THE SENIOR DEMOCRATS, CANNOT BE OVERSTATED. THIS IS TRUE FOR DOZENS OF REASONS BUT PRIMARILY BECAUSE OBAMA IS STILL WORKING HARD TO DESTROY OUR FREE AND CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT. WHILE HE AND HIS FAWNING REGIME ARE WORKING NIGHT AND DAY TO KILL HISTORICAL AMERICA-- WE SIT AND DEBATE WHETHER A CONGRESSIONAL HERO SPOKE TO HARSHLY, EMPLOYED TOO MUCH RIGOR IN EXPOSING THE OBAMA AND THE DEMOCRAT LEADERS TREACHERY. HOW SHOULD ALLEN WEST HAVE APPROACHED THE PAIN FILLED OBAMA EXPLOITS? WALK, UP TO THE PRESIDENT, HAT IN HAND, PROFUSE IN BOWS AND GENUFLECTIONS, PLEADING: ROYAL SIR, WOULD YOU PLEASE, AT LEAST FOR A WHILE, STOP COLLAPSING OUR NATION? WE KNOW YOUR GENIUS ONLY HAS CONTEMPT FOR OUR NERDY AND IGNORANT COUNTRY, BUT WE BELIEVE OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN COULD USE A DECREPIT, WORN OUT AND USELESS OLD COUNTRY LIKE THIS."
THIS APPROACH ONLY MILDLY DEPARTS FROM SOME OF OUR REPUBLICAN'S ATTITUDES, WHO HAVE MADE THEIR NESTS IN WASHINGTON MUCH TOO LONG.
FOR NUMEROUS REASONS CONGRESSMAN WEST DESERVES NO REPRIMAND HE DESERVES HONOR AND SINCERE ACCOLADES FROM EVERY AMERICAN WHO LOVES THIS UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
WOULD TO GOD THAT WE HAD 100 ALLEN WESTS IN CONGRESS--BUT THANKS UNTO GOD THAT HE HAS AT LEAST GIVEN US ONE.
Did it ever occur to you, coffee, that Col. West just doesn't want to take sides in the little cat fight that's going on between the Bachmann supporters and the Palin Supporters?
The man has a wife and two daughters.
I would say that he is wise in such matters.
And as for 'cheerleading'....Hell yeah!
It's primary season.
That's what goes on in primary season.
It's a entirely a different view and a liberating truth on the roles of women from the Biblical perspective. Even back in the ancient, male-dominated Middle-Eastern tradition society before Christ, Deborah was chosen by God to be the judge and the prophetess to lead and deliver the nation of Israel; Esther to deliver the nation from being wipeout by the Persian (Iranian); and there're other prominent women leadership in the Old Testament (among others, Miriam, sister of Moses ) and througout the New Testament (among the 120 in the upper room).
In the new testament, how Christ treated women with honour, compassion and understanding to entrust them with the work of His kingdom. Upon His resurrection from the death, He first appeared to Mary Magdalene (the 1st lady- evangelist) before His disciples. That's a preferential treatment for women's roles from men's perspective. Women's significant and leadership roles continued in the New Testament early church (among the upper room 120, and those in the letters of paul) and to the church today. As diametrically opposed to the enslaved women patriarchy in Koran Sharia Law and many backward society, the Bible is very progressive and liberating on the roles of women.
I will not be surprise in 2012, it might be the first Republican women president to shatters the White House's glass ceiling.
I coulda written that m'self.
Personally, I grew up in a house full of boys...so I never did get a degree in 'cat fight'.
But then, to be fair, guys do get into it too, they're just more straight up about it.
They'll just sock each other and get it over with.
It's called stating the obvious! besides Trump is running on the birther ticket, and this guy gaining popularity by calling the President of the United states names, petty third world dictator, Marxist etc. If that’s your idea “presidential” I think maybe you’re just supporting anyone who hates Obama. He sounds like a well spoken high school student insulting a teacher. That’s not presidential, that’s just immaturity.
The disgraced, bigot of a ret. COl with an At. 15 hearing on his record, is doing nothing more than his masters at the astro-turf tea pary tell him to do. He parrots the lines the Freedom Works prepares for him. He is an empty head and suit that way out of his league. This isn't "awesomeness", this is desperation! these people know they have nothing important, all they have is Character Assassination and lies, that's all they're good for. They are just as dumb as the people begging for him to be President, jst for insult the current President!
There is no way that Obama's character can be assassinated; he, himself killed it over a year ago. The man has zero credibility even among his own henchmen.
You, Questionman, are all alone-- no one is in your league. You are either the universe--class political illiterate or a Fabian Socialist as Obama, who cannot survive unless he lies without pause. It is quite plausible that you are both.
So be kind to America, give her a break-- allow Questionman to exalt his narrow training with QUESTIONS only; allow the intelligent and educated people to provide the ANSWERS.
Tell me, what's so intelligent and educated about name-calling? what's so intelligent and educated about this man? NOTHING! Mr. West has been living off of the taxpayers dime all of his Life. His low-level GHETTO name calling and disrespect of the President proves that fact. He sounds like he has a very high level of BLACK JEALOUSLY towards Barack and Michelle Obama. He will NEVER be President because West is too ignorant.
"Low-level GHETTO name calling" Questionman:=) that's you! Nothing that you presented in your post except Low-level GHETTO name calling repeated like a broken record from Alinsky race-card old talking point. You obviously are incapable to engage on the ground of substance and idea with your low-level intellectual intelligence. Good grieve! get an educated life. I've heard enough of this troll.
Ha, ha! but it's pretty cool that West can do what his 'masters' tell him without a teleprompter, isn't it???
Mmm...is that what they're pumping out in troll school?
You'd better come up with something better than that.
Check out the depth of knowledge Congressman West has: A "must see" talk West gave on security a few days ago on Capital Hill: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thuP_kWx82k&NR=1
The way I see it is this: Fox is supposed to be fair and balanced. But I think they go overboard sometimes to show that they will give a hard hitting interview with a Republican or Conservative.
I don't know. That's what it seems like to me anyway.
I hate Palin now.... i like her but people have to stop pushing her for prez. she is not qualified.
Obama is not qualified, Palin is not qualified; Paul Ryan, Allen West, Rand Paul, etc... are qualified
I like Bachmann too.
But when she formed that 'Tea Party Caucus' right after there were comments made about how the Republican Party "will have to co-opt the Tea Party freshman"...it made me wonder at the time if that 'Tea Party Caucus' is an attempt to do just that.
Only time will tell.
I don't know if West has joined it or not...and don't care.
But if he hasn't, maybe he's waiting to see too.
The measure of someone's adherance to Tea Party ideals has nothing to do with whether they've joined Bachmann's TPCaucus or not....it is their voting record.
And so far, West's voting record is stelar with regard to what the Tea Party is about.
Here we have Greta trying to make West seem "extreme" with his comment. Exactly why I don't watch Fox anymore. It's the establishment's channel.
Touting someone's 'political accomplishments' as a measure of their qualifications to be a good leader...is what the followers of Obama have done, to defend his resume.
It also lays a trap.
If you bring up Palin's 'political accomplishments'...it opens the door to bring up that 'quitting' thing that we're not supposed to talk about.
That's what they said?
I take that as encouraging...because it's not like they're saying "No, not under any circumstances".
It sounds like something that someone with his military background would have his people say, out of deference to the 'chain of command'.
It is up to us to make ourselves clear to the Republican party...that he is the one we will vote for.
We need to remind them of what happened in '96 and '08, when they ran a perennial candidate...and lost!
"...Marxist demagogic rhetoric"
I love it.
How refreshing to hear someone say it.
It's like a cool rain in a parched desert.
What a man - I honestly think that guy could turn your country round in two terms. A real shame he won't run.
UFC Game On! Glenn Beck, everybody!
Round 1: Beck vs. Huck. Result: A draw, will bout again in the next rematch.
Round 2: Breitbart vs. Bashir|MSNBC. Result: Righteous indignation destroyed Bashir in the final 12th round.
Round 3 Hannitty vs. Ellison. Result: Ellison disqualified (low blow hit).
Round 4: Tramp vs. Rove. Result: Tramp won by unanimous decision by all 3 judges
Round 5: West vs. Obama. Result: West totally owned Obama (TKO).
Actually 22227 you're mistaken. Greta did fine... she doubled down ... I think she she should have done more on getting Allen West to explain the low level agitator comment. Believe me... I think West could explain it very well and present it with a bow on top. And people need to hear exactly what class warfare rhetoric is, how it's conducted, and what its purposes are. Obama is a cultural Marxist using Marxists "critical theory" to undermine and topple the existing order... and West and others need to call them out on it by drawing on the examples of the tactics these Dem/left/progressive/libs are using.
Sunshine is needed to expose their tactics. What better place to start than with Jeremiah Wright. Obama's a big fat liar regarding his sitting in Wright's pew for twenty years. Read Obama's "Dreams from My Father". There is plenty of anti-white bigotry and hatred in the book to put the lie to Obama's claim that he didn't hear anything that Wright said from the pulpit.
Greta has to be more tough in order to prep West for what's coming from the MSM. The last thing our side needs to do is lob soft balls.
What's Gretta's problem? They said Bush was an "oil man,"Reagan was a "second-rate actor," and Truman was a "failed habidasher." Community organizer, or low-level socialist shill, was Obama's "job."
Why is it, on what is allegedly a conservative stattion is it a problem is you call a socialist a socialist? Did you ever see them challenge a Democrat for falsely saying Republicans want to give tax breaks to the richest?
"The truth needs to be said"
"I stand by what I said"
"I am sick and tired of this class warfare. This Marxist demagogic rhetoric that is coming the President of the United States"
Dear God, If you still love this country, please convince this statesman to run for POTUS. I promise I'll be good.
Please, God, please!!
This is the only person who can beat Obama in 2012.
I agree with you, Nick.
We need this man to run.
I think he really is the only one who can beat Obama.
