Not An Easy Makeover For Florida’s Rep. Allen West

Not An Easy Makeover For Florida’s Rep. Allen West

After less than two years in Congress, Rep. Allen West has raised $15 million to get himself re-elected.

That’s a mountain of money, but you’d need every dime if your job was to make West look like a calm, responsible person.

His whackjob ranting hasn’t hurt him among the Tea Party faithful, but it threatens the prospects of the 51-year-old Republican since he switched to a new district that includes Martin and St. Lucie counties and part of Palm Beach.

The task for West’s campaign managers is daunting because he has said so many phenomenally offensive and factually indefensible things. Every time the man opens his mouth, there’s a moment of high drama.

Please, Al, just stick to the script. We’re begging you.

Back in July, appearing as he does with hungry regularity on Fox News, West likened Social Security disability benefits to “a form of modern, 21st-century slavery.”

In one coldhearted breath, the retired Army colonel managed to insult 828,000 fellow veterans under the age of 66 who report receiving disability funds from Social Security. These include both active-duty and retired military.

West’s lame effort to mop up his mess occurred the following night (again on Fox), and featured his now-standard attack on the liberal media for twisting his words.

The recurring migraine for West’s handlers is that his words don’t require any twisting. They just spill out of his head that way, usually in front of a television camera, allowing them to be painfully replayed over and over.

It’s been a goldmine for West’s young Democratic opponent, Patrick Murphy, whose most effective campaign ads are a running montage of West’s indelible soundbites.

A favorite is his 2011 speech to a conservative women’s group in which he declared that those who support Planned Parenthood “have been neutering American men and bringing us to the point of this incredible weakness.”

What in the world was West babbling about? Are there mandatory spay clinics for guys?

Who knows what he meant, but it was weirdly fascinating to watch.

He actually went on — and some of this you don’t see in the commercial — to urge his audience “to let them know that we are not going to have our men become subservient … because if you don’t, then the debt will continue to grow … deficits will continue to grow.”

First, Do No Harm — To Your Bank Account

After being sued by The Wall Street Journal, the government finally released its Medicare reimbursement data last week. It included the less-than-stunning revelation that 28 of the 100 doctors who received the largest payments in 2012 were from Florida. No other state came close. And no physician in the country billed Medicare for bigger bucks

Most of the dead are babies and toddlers, and they perish in horrible ways — starved, punched, shaken, burned, thrown from cars or simply forgotten.

    The Pride Of The Tea Party.

    This is exactly what the Tea Party likes. The party-thats-not-really-anything-new, whose very name is nothing but a lie (taxes are the lowest in 60 years), was formed as a bigoted knee-jerk reaction to a newly-elected black President. Yes, these are the same redneck bigots who have found the need to take their vile and racist beliefs underground over the years to escape well-deserved public scorn.

    Because many Republicans feel a little uncomfortable about fully embracing a gaggle of lying bigots, the Tea Party has found the need to scrape the very bottom of the barrel for it’s candidates. Nut-jobs like Allen West are perfect for the Tea Party: A black man who is nuttier than a shit-house rat who is willing to be a pawn for a rabid bunch of intolerant bigots. “We aren’t racist, see – we have a black candidate!” (wink, wink).

    Nor is this the first nut-job the Tea Party has inflicted on America. Who can forget the wacky Christine (I’m not a witch) O’Donnell and the even wackier Sharon (2nd Amendment Remedies) Angle?

    This parade of idiots would be amusing except for the sobering fact that once in a while they actually get elected, which makes all of us look bad.

    The party that wasn’t: The Tea Party, the collection of American bigots who lie their way to office — if we let them. The non-party that has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to help America. The collection of rabid bigots who would turn America into a cesspool of institutionalized racism and intolerance if given the chance.

    Vote ‘No’ to bigots. Vote ‘No’ to Tea Party candidates.

        I didn’t mention her, but I didn’t forget her either. I believe Michelle Bachmann to be a special case, and I don’t know why America doesn’t insist upon seeing HER birth certificate. I’m almost certain she isn’t from this planet, or at least she’s on some extended drug trip that amounts to the same thing.

        I don’t know about you, but when I see her on TV I get that eerie feeling that she’s right out of the old movie ‘The Stepford Wives”. Something very wrong there, if you ask me.

      To : WhutHeSaid, You are so right. I am black and retired USAF. The West you are talking about have a problem and it is not with his black race.( our uncle Tom) His problem is with his ability to be a leader in the USA Army. He was forced to retire or be court marshaled for something he did while serving his country. It seem he went rouge when this happened and I think this is his way of getting back at his Commander and chief.

      • WhutHeSaid

        Perhaps that is his motivation, although I doubt that even he could make such a stretch to blame the current President for his charges and subsequent ‘bums rush’ from service in 2003 and 2004.

        No, I think it’s just a case of opportunity presenting itself — he saw a ticket to power by cozying up to a bunch of bigots and took it. I don’t know how he reconciles his association with a known racist group with his own race, but that only proves that anyone can be an opportunistic bigot. I suspect that he has such an ego (as many of these types do) that he believes himself ‘special’ — not black or white but some kind of superhero who is better than the ‘little people’. This would fit right in with many of the people he deals with for campaign contributions.

        Whatever his reasons, he is a reckless and dangerous nut-bag. He wasn’t fit for duty and he’s not fit for Congress. I hope gets his next ‘bums rush’ in November.

  • holtjp

    I served together with Allen West when we were both Captains in the Army. It is still hard to believe, knowing the guy I knew then, that he turned into the politician we see now. Back in the early 90s, West was a calm, rational, and professional officer. I believe he was changed by his experiences in Iraq and the dark circumstances that forced him to retire from the Army in lieu of court martial. Rallying around him at that point were many from the far right fringe. It appears West seized that opportunity to launch an entirely new career as a political actor, and I do mean actor. Unfortunately, even if he loses the upcoming election, he’ll still be around as a regular on Fox News.

        Kay, maybe it isn’t American education that has declined. There are documented facts and figures out there that show the overall IQ levels are dropping. Let me explain to you what facts and documentation are:

        Documentation is when something is backed up by proveable facts. Prejudice is when you don’t let facts interfere with your preconceived notions. If you weren’t prejudiced against the President, you would see good in him and not use regurgitated crap like calling him a communist.

      • WhutHeSaid

        Since it appears that you were attempting to respond to my comment, let me offer this observation:

        Please pull off the covers you’ve been hiding under since 1962 — there are no ‘commies’ around these days for you to use for your scare tactics. We know a bigot when we see one, and one of their favorite terms is ‘un-American’.

        The jig is up — we know where bigots are hiding these days, and it’s initials are ‘TP’. As far as I know there is still only one good use for ‘TP’.

      • puzzled21

        The fact that any female who does not have diminished capacity, who has actually looked at Romney and Ryan’s record on women’s issues, equal pay, birth control, health issues, right to choose and she still can back them, please give them your vote. If you can produce one piece of factual verifiable documentation, that you allude to in your comment, to support your position, it is welcomed. While we may suffer from the demise of the education received through the public education system, you apparently have no education/brain at all, based on your groundless and mindless comments. Why do we have to be labeled as communist because we have a different opinion. The real serious and dangerous problem with people like you is, that if we all don’t think like you, you spout the tenets of America life ,liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, free speech but you only think the privilege is for the warped minded like yourself. That is why the sane folks have to stand up, the patients are running the mental institution.

    Considering he was given the option of resigning his commission in the Army or face a Court Martial for his actions in Iraq, I think it is safe to say that not only does his deck have just 51 cards but his handlers don’t have time to look for it because they are constantly playing “51-pickup” for him.
    That says a lot about who the Tea Baggers just love – don’t it!

        I agree, that Michael Steele is a decent and intelligent guy. Yes he leans to the right, as is required by Republicans, but he is more middle than right wing.
        The Republicans really need to encourage people Steele because they represent a more moderate politician.

        • WhutHeSaid

          I agree that Michael Steele is vastly more sensible than Allen West. The shame is that he now finds himself in the very bad position of defending extremist right-wing policies that he personally may not believe in.

          The GOP badly needs to be overhauled. If they hope to return to some state of credibility that has a future in American politics, they will need to jettison this Tea-Nut-Bigot lunatic fringe and start over. America is steadily becoming a brown country, and this may be the last year that a bigoted and intolerant agenda has any hope of success at all. It may already be too late for them.

      I talked to someone that was describing his neighbor who is voting for Romney. He says “we need to take our country back” which is a huge racist comment by itself.

  • peteserb

    It’s amazing that the liberals can write this garbage. In west we have a retired military man who served his country with distinction. In Obama we have a left wing thug who hates this nation and the Memo attacks the true patriot. Left wingers deride and villify those who stand for the real America not the liberal/socialist crap put out by the moochers of our country. Why not work hard, be independent and attempt to succeeed? You might find it gratifying if you can learn how to compete, not mooch.

    • WhutHeSaid

      Yes, he served with such ‘distinction’ that he accepted fines and forced retirement rather than face a court martial. It seems that Nutty Allen was even a little too nutty for combat duty — and that’s saying something, isn’t it?

      In short — he broke the law, but that’s OK if he serves your ‘higher purpose’ of a ‘real white America’ — right petey?

      Wow, we have a quorum of nut cases here. Three paid republican hacks: obozo, petserb and ondone. it is possible that they are the same person, based on the common denominator of ignorance, stupidity and delusion, but I am not sure.

  • ridemybroom

    this is another nut job that needs to go….talk about a waste of humanity….i have no wonder how this man looks in the mirror every morning and cant suicide himself or deport him-self back to deep doggy do…..hes a screwed up joke !

  • onedonewong

    His opponent has reverted to vile name calling such as house nigger as a method to appeal to the racists dem base. Yet the state run media finds no time to do any reporting on it. Had this been Rush or Chick f la there would be calls for boycotts or personal threats, but if its a dem making these claims then its OK

      West’s opponent ‘name-calling’? Allen West is the VICTIM of name calling? Excuse me a moment….

      ha. haha. bwaaaaaaaaahahahahahahHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

      That’s good, OneDingDong — you always manage to live up to your name!

      • onedonewong

        are you denying that is opponet is a racist???

          I am denying that you ever posted anything sensible in your entire life. Does that help?

            Looks like you lose again

          • WhutHeSaid

            Well, OneHungWrong — let’s put it to the test: We’ll pretend for just a moment that we haven’t all written you off as a nutty but ineffectual troll so that you may bestow a great and profound wisdom upon us all.

            Here’s your chance — make it good!

            OneDingDong — I’m impressed! You managed to use 3 big words in a single sentence: quantifiable, accuracy, and veracity. Please go one step further and google the definitions now.

          • onedonewong

            Those words don’t appear in your demorat bible so you want me to define them for you?? Isn’t it enough that I have to pay taxes so you can be on welfare???

    I have one thing only to say about Mr. West. If I was walking down a desolate alley “anywhere” and saw him coming, I would be really scared. A patriot? Really? Bea afraid, be very, very afraid!!

  • ObozoMustGo

    Carl Hiaasen, useful idiot du jour, with yet another hit piece that is severely distorted, so much so that it had to take the efforts of the Obozo campaign propaganda machine to assist you, I am sure: “good useful idiot… just do as we say… nevermind your journalistic integrity… the leftist cause is greater than yourself… you know that”

    Meanwhile, back in Benghazi, Obozo continues to stonewall and obfuscate the simple facts of the case:

    1) Obozo knew that the attack was a preplanned and organized attack within moments of it happening. Yet he blamed a video for a month. HE LIED!
    2) Obozo watched live video feed in the WH situation room from drones flying above. The attack from start to finish lasted about 8.5 hours in multiple waves.
    3) DoD had special ops teams ready in southern Italy and forces in the Med Sea and elsewhere. Any of them could have been there in a matter of a few hours to help out.
    4) Obozo is the only one that has authority to OK a strike of this nature.

    5) OBOZO DID NOT APPROVE A SINGLE ACTION TO HELP OUT OUR HEROS FIGHTING FOR OVER 4 HOURS, AND THEIR BATTLE STARTED 4+ HOURS AFTER THE WHOLE ATTACK STARTED. OBOZO LET OUR MEN DIE AND DID NOT LIFT A FINGER TO HELP OUT.

    OBOZO LIED, AMERICANS DIED!

    Have a nice day!

    • WhutHeSaid

      Excuse me, Bozo, but don’t you have a KKK rally or cross-burning you are supposed to attend? Hurry — don’t be late!

      • ObozoMustGo

        what…. is the race card the only one you know how to play?

        • WhutHeSaid

          So how did the rally go?

    • puzzled21

      Why is it a hit piece when someone from this side writes an article, with facts that can be checked and validated and when you guys just keep singing that that same old tune with no foundation it is the truth. Talking about denial.

      • ObozoMustGo

        puzzy…. when President Elect Romney takes over and the Republicans take the Senate and the House, the truth about Benghazi will come out. What I have written is already truth that is out. You leftist freaks just don’t get the truth from MSLSD, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC. When have you seen a single article on The Memo about an international incident where an American ambassador is slain and dragged through the streets? What have you heard in the MSM other than it was over a video? Don’t be a moron, puzzy.

        Have a nice day!

      Shut up obozo, Republican paid hack. Go away and do all of us a favor.

      • ObozoMustGo

        Nappy…. you sure don’t like the truth very much, do you?

        OBOZO LIED, AMERICANS DIED! AND HE CUT AND RUN LIKE A COWARD.

        That’s what he did. Plain and simple.

        Amazing how much information we got immediately on the OBL killing, but for some reason, information on Benghazi seems to really hard to get. Hmmmmmmm?????

        Go back to your crack pipe, Nappy.

        Have a nice day!

      The seal’s father said that to Romney when he asked him to stop using his son’s name in his ad and as did another seal’s mother who had to asked Romney to stop using her son’s name in his ad. Get your information right. Romney is the one that is the coward, he received 5 deferrals so he wouldn’t have to go to Viet Nam and then went to France as a Mormon missionary so he would not be sent to Nam. The war in Viet Nam that he protested for but was to much of a coward to go fight. President Obama wasn’t old enough to go to Nam but Romney was draft age then but got out of going.
      I had several cousins that fought in Nam and I think Romney a big coward who thinks that his money makes him better than anyone that isn’t worth millions and can’t be trusted to be President . And mustgo don’t have a nice day.

    Allan West appears out of place because he is out of place. He’s surrounded by and representing the Tea Party, white supremacy’s attempt to remove President Obama from office, someone who looks like Allan West. The Tea Party get their image from the movie “Network”, you know, the “I’m mad as hell and I’m not taking it anymore!” type. They are financed and promoted by the Koch Brothers lock, stock, and barrel They should all do what that character in “Network” did. But we’;; do it for them on November 6th. they are all an embarrassment to America, Americans, all women, and God. People were caught off-guard by them and thought they were a righteous group of people until they settled down from their rants and started to speak their hearts. Now, we all see what they are and what they are about, and they need to be fired. The Republican/Tea Party are obstructionists. They block progress. They wrangle and filabuster and call that good politics. They have done nothing since they got in office but bitch and moan and whine about President Obama, but at the same time obstruct, block, wrangle, and filabuster. They are hurting America and American people by preventing measures for the progress of this country. That’s treason. They work for us, not for their self interest and gain. We should fire them all so that we can move forward and continue forward. FORWARD AMERICA! OBAMA/BIDEN 2012!—- HILLARY CLINTON 2016!

    I had some very strange commanders in my years of service, but I am glad I never had him for a commander. I see he is considered “retired”from the ,military. If so, he lived off the taxpayer for 20 years and is now collecting a pension from us.
