Allen West For President? It's Starting.

Yes, the buzz is already starting up in some of the farthest reaching corners of America's right wing that Allen West should be our next president. There's now a website devoted to the idea and a blog called American Thinker had a post about West yesterday titled "America's Next Black President" that opined:

No, West isn't at a Nazi event -- he's photographed here visiting a Holocaust museum in Jerusalem.
"On the horizon, the 'dawn of a new America' approaches and with it comes a uniqe opportunity to replace America's first black president with a man who, secondary to being a patriotic American, just happens to be black."

And here's another Republican blog that promotes West as an "intelligent and rational antidote to Ron Paul" after the CPAC straw poll showed Paul as the most popular choice for the 2012 nomination.

Of course this is all silly talk. West is way too radical to ever get any traction in a presidential run. Right?

-- Should have probably let y'all know that American Greed's show on Scott Rothstein is coming up but didn't want to hype it too soon. Though I won't be on the screen, I helped with the production so you'll see some Pulpalicious things in the show that is airing next Wednesday at 10 p.m. Maybe we should live blog that baby.

“Once again the RepublicanRepresentative from Florida, Allen West has called attention to

his undistinguished career in Congress. This time by charging that more than 75 Democrats

in Congress are communist.

Mr. West needs to take responsibilityfor these allegations immediately. He needs to identify

by name each member of Congress he isaccusing and to substantiate his claims against them.

If he is unable or unwilling to do so,he should resign his office immediately.”

Nick Kaiser is the first openly-gayindependent candidate for President.

These comments were made at a breakfastfor supporters in Jamestown, NY this morning.

Allan West will be the first congressman to storm the floor of congress win gun in hand and grenades in flack jacket and committ mass murder. West is a ticking time bomb.

Just for fun... Read my note:

I will be placing myself on the ballot in as many states as possible NOT TO WIN (because 'they' would not allow that, but simply to spread the Mealer Economic Plan and hopefully force a slice of common decency into whichever candidate actually wins the presidency.  We truly MUST NOT have a politician elected as POTUS in 2012.All the while, placing notice upon all politicians that Americans are done with their lack of enthusiasm and special interest bribery under the guise of business as usual. Although Allen West seems like a good bet, I have a few reservations about even his political and lobbyist connected past.As far as US Debt holders, especially those who are proudly and defiantly touting above our heads, the fact that America has been wholly mismanaged and contreolled by transnational conglomerates.RE: US Debt to China which is also part of our American unemployment issues... This simple solution is part of the over-all Mealer Economic Plan.China and the Federal Reserve can be paid off through Article I Section 8 of the US Constitution with coins. By minting several trillion-dollar coins and few 100-billion-dollar coins a US President with the cajones to do it, can flip them at the gathered debt holders and pay them off in full.WHY would Congress mint these coins by Presidential Directive alone?Simple... Through Executive Order, the national debt and American unemployment would be declared a Nation Emergency and the President would put the CIA, FBI, NSA and other military powers (along with the elderly pushing brooms to clean up their mess) under orders to secure those politicians who constitute and prolong this national Emergency through their perverted transnational-conglomerate controlled and lobbiest pay-offs.The FDA, EPA and FTC would be put on Porta-Jon raw sewage-siphoning  duty until they can become legitimate organizations and void of lobbiest funds... No more USRDA food poisoning with lobbied additives and toxins! As far  I am concerned the Pork Industry and their hazardous 'food' products can be shipped to feed America's enemies. (There is a reason America is getting fat while eating less!). We are being force fed poisons after the lobby groups force the politicians to allow misleading labels and make us fatter to eat more.Milk with sugar? When did that happen?IN FACT, the threat alone of this style of coinage debt pay-off would 'figuratively speaking', place the gonads of the ill-willed lenders in Americas soon to be iron grip... Meaning, it's time to be the greatest nation on earth and lead the way, rather than apologize.Would you be willing to read and spread the Arizona based Mealer Plan? This would work so much better on a national level, but I have no federal connections except Arizona's Sen McCain and Sen Kyl.You can read it herehttp://mealercompanies.com... keep in mind, that the Arizona Mealer Economic Plan is outlined for the state where I live.Further, I truly believe that an immediate presidential tour of the world called the "Strong American Arrogance Tour" is in order. As IF I were President that is. Hell, after Mealer v GM,  I'd take a few bullets just to see this Plan and the 'Article I, Sec 8- Trillion Dollar Coin debt pay-off' through!One never knows with my peculiar yet blessed life.JL Mealer

I want Allen West for President.  He is the only politician I have sent money to.  I served 22 years in the Army and I know leadership when I see it.  Congressman West exudes leadership.  The rest of the Republican field, with the possible exception of Cain, are professional politicians who just don't have what takes.  It takes steal balls and a wheel barrow to cart them around in.  The rest come across as platitude spouting moderates.  The only thing you get on the fence is a sore crotch.  Allen West does not sit on the fence.

Holy crap youre right! He IS black! Who knew!?Congressman West, please run for the presidency. So many of us have such high respect for you & appreciate your years of service to our (once) great nation. We don't want a pencil pushing, pocket fishing politician in the White House, we want an American Patriot, and that Patriot is YOU. Now roll up those sleeves, stop being humble, and say, "yes" ... America is proposing!

Mr. West, we are proud of you. You have nothing to be nervous about because you went all out for your country and trying to protect your men. I think you did what you should have done. I, and am only one of many who are proud of you and want you to know. If you are who you appear to be, you have my vote if you ever run for President. We do need you or someone like you during these times of great confusion in the U.S. You have leadership and if you choose intelligent and experienced people who are true and just around you, who are loyal to this country and her Constitution, we may pull out of this horrible direction where those who are in the present administration are heading the country. Just be you. That is sufficient. You and God knows your heart, but others have the God given gift of discernment. I believe you have learned the Truth during your lifetime.

We need to take our schools away from those laying liberal, communistic and muslim ideas into the heads of our children. Those loons are working on young children making them feel guilty for succeeding. Making children have an idea that they should give away what they worked for to those not trying and those who say there is a greater need here or there. That is God's job to put a conscious in people and a preachers job to show people the 10 commandments. The schools will not allow anything good or decent to be taught to children whereby they can realize who they really are and what good really is. They want to make mandates and edicts presented to the youth from those self-made elitists who want God out of the picture. People have a right to pursue happiness in this country. People are smart enough to find ways to cope and succeed and not have to depend on people to swindle them out of their efforts who have their own hidden agendas of using the less fortunate to screetch and holler and keep the elitist in power. These elitits are just using causes to advance their own enrichment. Many of them are very rich, millionares and even billionares. Let these rich liars give away their fortunes and live poor if they want to instead of off the backs of the lower middle class and middle class.

We need Allen West now. He is a man who knows what our country needs. I am a Tea Party leaning person from the right who is white and a person who has lived through all this political correctness I can stomach. People whinning malcontents are trying to lead this country in every direction. This mickey mouse stuff needs to stop and put priorities back where they belong. Those who find a better place to live needs to go there and leave our Republic alone. This is our country and Mr. West is right, we do have a culture. I say if you cannot assimilate and come into this country legally. Stay your butts where you are, not here. We are not going to give you whinners our culture, our country and our goods, so find some other suckers who will listen to this school yard whinning of 'he said, she said.' No one cares except those trying to confuse those dim wits in the government who are sitting up there making agencie to do with each and every whine coming from those who wish harm to our country and those who use this whinning to have an excuse to take away our liberties.

Maybe the quest for the 2012 GOP nomination will come down to Alien West and Jeb Bush and they can compromise and run as a ticket. That way they'd win Florida and lose the other 49 states. Fine by me.

People get over it. Scott is doing a good job West has done more in one month than Klien did in 4 years. Even Dori Klein commented to that fact. She is dissappointed because she liked the DC social life..... You might not like all of West's policies but you must admit he is a stand up guy who represents. Do not bother to reply to me. This is a one time post since I do have a job. But, give the men a chance. Ths paper was once used to line my bird cage, I would like to believe that yu all have become REAL news writers.

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigth, Tea Party righties would vote for another Black president. Bull crap.

The problem with West is he fails to remember that some of this troops who died were liberals. He is a classic conservative who thinks his side owns patriotism.

The founding fathers were liberals and for change or we would still be kissing the queen's ass and speaking british if we had depended on the conservatives of that tim.e

West could not win a GOP primary in the South because of his race. He couldn't win the GOP nomination because he's too far out of the mainstream, like Ron and Rand Paul. And he's not petty like Sarah or intelligent like Newt. He's not slick like Mitt, and he's right up there on the fanatic scale with Huckabee, who polls lower than Mitt and Newt. And, unlike all the rest of them, he's a genuine war criminal who disgraced the uniform and the country. He shouldn't even be in Congress. Any good female Democrat can beat him.

Former President George Bush and his son took America and her failing agencies and restructured them so America could move forward. These agencies were all failing because they began in a country with a much smaller population. The model does not work in todays world. So George W restructured many of these agencies so they can now survive. He has been given no credit for such a great undertaking he accomplished. His father will be accepting an award today well deserved.Give Rick Scott a chance. He is trying to restructure the Pension funds. They can't work the way they are. Down the road there will be no funds for anyone, they will be gone. We will have filed for bankruptcy and wiped the slate clean. Scott has a good idea for them.

Pulp, will we get to see some of the other corrupt players like Adler, Levin, Szfranski, Boden, Lippman, maybe Mo in American Greed?

Ind_Thinker

Way to go Pulp. You're following the playbook to the letter.

Yesterday, you got em with the ole double standard. You know - all tea partiers are racists but when an African-American tea party candidate beats a democratic establishment candidate in a fair election, overlook that fact and then throw out a gem like, "See, the GOP has black friends -- and they even invite them to perform at their parties." Those GOP jerks can't win when you nail them with the "damned if you do, damned if you don't" angle.

Now, we all know that all tea partiers are racist Nazis. How to best embed that image in the minds of the Democratic sheep so they keep repeating that mantra? Brilliant idea - find a picture of a tea party candidate at a Holocaust museum with Nazi flags in the background. Sure, caption the pic to explain where it was taken, but we all know that the picture itself will leave an indelible image in the minds of the viewer.

Don't stop there. Next, see if you can find a picture of Mr. West lying in a bed with white sheets all around him and preferably in a point above his head.

From what I've seen and heard from Mr. West, I'm not a fan. But the fact that he has so many people worked up makes me want to take a closer look.

America's greatest strength sir is that our are enemies don't know what POTUS is going to do.  That's what I liked about Nixon, Reagan, and both Bushs'.  Even the Rev. Dr. MLK jr. himself thought Nixon was an honest man who would be a good partner in the great American fight for justice.  America, I think, is fed up with the likes of Obama and the Clintons.  So my friend get your head on right and join us in becoming the Great Republic we once were.  It's either that or another civil war.  We are simply not going to have the Constitution walked on anymore.

You're forgetting the bond between Christian evangelicals and rightwing Israelis. I'm certain he cares about the present regime in Tel Aviv. In a congress where AIPAC has enormous power--some say too much-- multiple trips to Jerusalem is a matter of political survival.

I too am a war criminal.  We did what we had to do in order to get "battlefield intelligence".  I too then disgraced the uniform.  Vietnam vet and proud of it.  To me you are lower than whale shit and that's on the bottom of the sea.  Nothing more disgusting than a Liberal in the mind of the average member of the Armed Forces.  For good reason I assure you.

I would love to see pics of the RRA partners superimposed over evidence of all of the ridiculous, over-the-top spending and then explain how none of them had any idea that anything was out of the ordinary. After all, they were only making 2-3 times what a partner at a large national law firm would make for doing twice as much work.

How about all the pics of SR with Charlie Christ? They better show the one with the birthday cake?

That picture is despicably and intentionally misleading and inflammatory. Yes, you clarify the photo's context in a small-printed caption, but you know exactly what kind of correlation you're hoping to evoke with an Allen West headline and a swastika-filled photo of the man. Seems very [Joyce] Kaufman-esque of you....

In my book, that's just not good journalism.

Wow. So historically inaccurate. Some owned slaves. Some did not. Most were oppossed to the institution of slavery (with the exception of those from the Carolinas and Georgia). Many of those that did own slaves freed them and even started abolitionist societies. Do some research. Start with Hamilton.
