Allen West Dresses Down Obama’s “Voting is the Best Revenge” Remark

by Javier Manjarres

In the final weekend before Tuesday’s General Election, Congressman Allen West gave a dressing down to President Barack Obama’s recent remark that “voting is the best revenge” during a GOP Victory rally event in Palm Beach County.

This not about revenge, this is about a different word that starts with an  “R” and that is about “restore.” And it’s about restoring another word that starts with an “R” and that’s our Republic.” – Allen West

West also pointed out the glaring questions that the media refused to ask during the 2008 presidential campaign and Obama’s rise to power-

“No one asked what ‘fundamentally transform’ meant. No one asked what ‘hope and change’ meant. No one asked what ‘change we can believe in’ meant. But now we know what that means today.”

Obama’s campaign slogans were nothing more than a cover for his real intentions- the bankruptcy of the United States and the creation of a European-style “dependency society.”

 West also compared the September 11th Benghazi consulate attack with ‘Black Hawk Down’ incident in Mogadishu, Somalia, reminding those in attendance that both incidents were unfortunate instances of leadership failure, as backup assistance was requested in both cases but was ultimately denied.   

I will never leave my comrade brother behind, unfortunately we have someone in the White House that doesn’t believe in that. – Allen West

    I hope one day the White House is occupied by President West.

      I hope one day the White House is occupied by someone who knows and respects the Constitution and truly loves America as it was founded …Allen West fits that bill. I believe that Mitt Romney fits that bill as well. What I don’t know: will he DO what needs to be done – which in my book is the past 12 years of Exec Orders and Legislation?

    The RIGHT vs the LEFT: Class vs Mean-spirited. Respect vs Disdain. Givers vs Takers. Smaller Gov’t & Independence vs Socialism & Dependence …which ultimately results in Communism.

    IF the entire country knew what was going on with super-storm Sandy’s aftermath right now, they just might reconsider for whom they vote. Peeps are really hurting in those Blue States run by Democrats – no food, no power, many homeless …and WHO is being taken care of 1st? The 1%-ers. The MSM is NOT reporting what is really going on in fear of hurting Barry Soetero’s re-election chances!

    Oh surprise, surprise…Allen West has another comment… I’ll be so glad when this election posturing is over. But one thing’s for sure…Allen West’s prodigious mouth will continue. It would be so refreshing to actually hear something constructive pass between those lips!
