One could only laugh at how liberal propagandists are so-enamored (obsessed) with former Congressman Allen West, who to them is the anti-Christ himself.Media Matters has just posted a their very own detailed opposition research talking points on everything Allen West.
You would think that Media Matters had more important things to do than go after a FOX News Contributor, but the these guys really fear West, and the influence he wields.
It is so obvious that West scares the crapola out of them, and because he hasn’t ruled out a possible future run for higher office, perhaps Media Matters is trying to stay a step ahead of the former Army Colonel and Congressman?
Fat chance this will happen. Allen West once said,” I won’t be ambushed.’
