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
