Allen West Rallies Attendees For Mitt Romney


By Javier Manjarres

Port St.Lucie, FL- Republican Presidential nominee Mitt Romney continued his mini-Florida bus tour with a stop in St.Lucie County on Sunday. The rally attracted an estimated 13,000 supporters who braved South Florida’s afternoon thunderstorms.

Congressman Allen West joined Romney at the event, as  West’s new Congressional district encompasses most of St. Lucie County. The crowd expressed a huge roar of approval as Congressman West was introduced to speak to those assembled.

West, as always, did not disappoint, referring to Vice Presidential nominee Paul Ryan as his “fox hole buddy.”

 It’s a race between what is simply called the opportunity society versus the dependency society. -Congressman Allen West

      Teresa, I agree with all you say. Bondi would make a great Governor or Senator. West makes a great Representative and would make a great Senator and then on up the ladder.

    America is starting to wake up! The liberal media has been putting America to sleep for too long. I’m AFRAID at the direction this country is heading. Ronald Regan once said “Freedom is just one generation from extintion” and now…. N O W for the first time in my adult life, I SEE what that looks like. Mitt MUST get elected.

    I was so happy seeing Mr. West speak at the event. However, It felt some what awkward that he was the only black man in attendance. Why can’t more blacks get on board with the program. I know that most blacks are dependant on the government, but some should be making a decent living.

    I am thrilled to see Allen West speaking for Florida and for America at any time! He is honest, forthright and a TRUE PATRIOT. Seeing him here only inforced my decision made month ago to vote for Mitt Romney.
    “They” call Florida a swing state, I call us a swinging state and we swing for America. We swing for Allen West and Mitt Romney to put America back on the right path!

    Well, surprise, surprise. Allen West’s election is pretty much contingent on the success or failure of the Romney/Ryan ticket. I’m just not comfortable with Allen West’s tarnished military record, and his delinquent loans and tax liens. My question is this–besides being mean-spirited and that anyone who doesn’t agree with him–get the hell of of America, if Mr. West can’t control his PERSONAL finances, just how responsible will he be with the country’s finances? This man is one poster child for someone who shouldn’t be trusted in Congress! Bad mouth, bad decisions. This is one Republican I’d NEVER vote for! Truly and embarrassment to Florida!

      I can’t beleive you said wrote black people don’t pay their bills? So racist….I suppose all black people are also on welfare? Racism is such an ugly thing. Why are people so affraid of blacks in politics?

    • Pat

      CraiginFlorida….before you call West’s military record, you might think about researching his military record because you obviously either have no idea what you are talking about or you’re just another Obama sheep. West has an excellent military must be talking about him blowing the balls off a terrorist leader who headed a group of terrorists who captured some of West’s men while they were on patrol..Yup West blew off the leaders balls, but got every one of his men back UNHARMED….now put that in your bong and smoke it.

    • William B Beaver

      Sir you are a dumbass, I guess that you would rather have our military with no bullets in their guns, like obama and Clinton. All of his debts were cleared up when he returned from battle protecting his troops and your sorry ass.

    • AFIraqVet

      Well surprise, surprise. The site’s not-so-subtle resident concern troll comes in to talk about how much a “conservative” like him is so disapproving. Nobody’s buying it, just like nobody buys your unsubstantiated attacks against Allen West’s character.

        Once again, you refuse to arddess the basic fact that Weiner refuses to let the proper authorities handle this. Once again, the reply is let him file a report with the proper law enforcement authorities’.That is the quickest way to find out who did it. If a hacking was done then the perpetrator of the crime will be arrested and will hopefully be charged with MULTIPLE charges. That’s what the police and the FBI actually get paid to do. And given the high profile of this event, it’s a VERY safe bet it would be investigated.And once again, hiring a private investigator will do absolutely no good, because companies like Twitter aren’t required to turn over information regarding login IPs’ without a court order. And you won’t see a court order happening without the Capitol Police or the FBI being involved. A private investigator has ZERO powers of arrest. ZERO powers to legally obtain the information, obtainable only by court order. You can bring up all you want about what if this’ or maybe this happened’, but it will do exactly zero good to bring the guilty parties to justice without law enforcement being involved. If an investigator does something dumb like illegally obtaining the IP trace, or illegally detaining a suspect, that suspect can and will get their case dismissed on Constitutional grounds.If a hacking was NOT done, then Weiner could be and should be charged with filing a false report.Think of this the NYPD was actually AT Weiner’s office today. You had a perfect opportunity for the matter to become a criminal investigation and when an arrest is made, the perp does the perp walk, in handcuffs. Visualize it what if it WAS Breitbart or one of his people don’t you WANT to see that? Yet you continue to defend Weiner’s refusal to notify the proper authorities.I wore a badge for nine years I have some idea of what I’m talking about. Do you?

    I didn’t see a teleprompter… Nobody pulling his strings

    Neocon man is correct however the answer is that affluent blacks are often afraid of the cruel treatment
    they and their families will receive from the left. They do not want to risk it as they have seen the treatment that conservative blacks receive, i.e., Clarence Thomas, Allen West, et. al., Those on the left are the most intolerant, bigoted, and hypocritical people there are. That is why conservative Blacks remain, for the most part, a silent minority.

  • Nancy Celano

    Col. West will continue to make the country proud, again. He is on the way.
    We travelled from Sebastian to attend the rally, and it was worth it. The thousands of REAL Americans unified to cheer Romney for the ideals he possesses that are our ideals, too.
    We must all vote for the STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN TICKET in order to return our beloved country to its former greatness.

    CraiginFlorida is just another brianless leeching liberal troll…go far
    away Craig….you’ll never know what’s really going on with your head so
    far up your butt.

  • West doesn’t have Lo-T

    Congressman West did what he thought he had to do as a LEADER in IRAQ. His soldiers came first even at the expense of a possible Court Martial. He accepted Article 15, Non-Judicial punishment as a MAN!

    I’m praying for Mitt Romney as our next President, and for Allen West to be re-elected into Congress. Do not let this horrible dishonesty defeat these two, brilliant, and honorable patriots!…

    “As a result of our discussions and other interactions with gay and lesbian voters across the state, I am more convinced than ever that as we seek to establish full equality for America’s gay and lesbian citizens, I will provide more effective leadership than my opponent,” Mitt Romney, 1994, referring to US Sen. Edward M. Kennedy!

    As head of Salt Lake City Olympic Committee, Romney banned Boy Scouts from participating, due to their “discrimination” against gays.

    “I feel that all people should be able to participate in the Boy Scouts regardless of their sexual orientation.” -Mitt Romney -2007

    The man is a charlatan and a RINO! Wake up people. The lesser of two evils is still a vote for evil. There is only one real conservative running for president: Virgil Goode

    Hey stupid, whose to say that the Weiner Haters took a photo of him at the gym? Seriously, they could have. They hate and they’ve been going after him for aihwle now. Breitbart and his cronies stoop to any level to get a story! Weiner seems confused when he talks about the photo because it could be him (taken with his permission or accessed through his Facebook account illegally) and he’s not sure how it got on his Twitter page or .it’s not him and he still doesn’t understand how it got on there! We’ll find out at some point. If Weiner is the one who did it, fine. He will have to deal with his constituents if he did, but if it’s found out that there was quite a conspiracy going on behind the scenes to get him, well, the reich wing will have to apologize once again to a Democrat. I look forward to it. Oh wait! They never apologize. Reich wingers go through life as sinners with jesus in their hearts!
