Glenn Beck has endorsed Allen West for the presidency. Also, he's endorsed Michelle Bachmann for veep, Ron Paul for Treasury secretary, and "Rambo for everything else." (America must hope Beck would rethink the latter notion if he saw the last John Rambo flick.)

This came during the conspiracy theorist's and soon-to-be-ex-Fox-flagship-personality's Saturday appearance in Tallahassee. According to the Tallahasee Democrat, Beck:

...drew a loudly appreciative crowd for an evening appearance two blocks from Florida's Capitol, mixing standup comedy with personal observations and testaments to his Christian faith. Beck last week announced that he and FOX will part later this year, but he told the crowd he will continue propounding his beliefs "in a different way" -- which he did not reveal.

Beck's religious musings were mostly of the smiting-and-burning variety. He spoke about a time when "God" would protect believers with fire and burn infidels. He said that the New York Times would burn and that Fox was the only place where news consumers could find the truth. One attendee interviewed by the Democrat called Beck "more of a teacher... than a typical political guy."

Well anyone who would really read the whole bible rightly divided, God says He never changes. And at the end of the bible, Jesus says, He is the same yesterday, today and forever.I didn't see anything but truth, I didn't see conspiracy theories. Do you think that Americans haven't already decided that there is so much propaganda coming out of the news on both sides that we can't believe anything they say, because truth is always slanted according to their desires? Do you think we can believe anything that comes from this administration, when they say we don't have boots on the ground but we do.The only thing we can do is to turn to God, and the difference with Glenn and I, I will say there is only one way to the One True God, and that is through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, all other ways are false ways, and will lead to a very real hell. Because there is no Universalism, there is no pluralism, that will save anyone.Only Jesus, came to be the sacrifice for our sins, and getting to know Him as your Lord by repenting that even though we think we are morally good, there is no one good compared to the Holy God, so we repent of our sins, and except Jesus as our Lord and Master, getting to know Him, and having a closer living, real relationship with Him, than any friend, any parent, spouse or child. He is our best friend, and this is a two way communication, and friendship. America is doomed unless they humble themselves, seek His face, and turn from their wicked ways, and then will He hear from heaven and heal our lands.

What has West done that's "shaking up Washington?" Nothing. Uncompromising to core values? What are you people thinking and talking about? To what core values do you refer? Unfortunatey, this sort of thinking doesn't stop people like Glenn Beck, who is primarliy an entertainer, from stoking the fires with talk of a West-Bachmann ticket. Neither West nor Bachmann has sponsored a single piece of serious legislation, preferring instead to appear in public forums to fan the flames with outlandish, populist rhetoric. Lest anyone forget, Joe McCarthy was a populist. "Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it." George Santayana.

Why, on one hand, does Chicken Little and fanboys/fangirls come to mind, and on the other, P.T. Barnum and suckers?

To the chagrin of the left, Allen West's political star is just beginning to rise. It is a testament to his strength that he is as reviled as he is celebrated. He's shaking things up in DC, and that's exactly why we elected him. Go West!

Wow this was probably the worst article I have ever read. I was at the event in Tallahassee. Way to go with not explaining the premise behind the comments he made, that's true journalism.... idiots.

It's actually a good piece about the importance of honor and values - check it out at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

I agree with Glenn Beck on one important point: the next President will preside over EITHER the end or a new beginning of our Country. Allen West goes further, stating that we could witness the end of Western civilization if the present trends continue.Allen West understands you don't compromise core values. He is a man of honor and courage. His positions are clear, and he doesn't give a hoot about poll numbers. The world is discovering what many of us already know: Allen West is the real deal.

If this is the worst article ever read --- I'm going to go out on a limb and say there's not much reading going on there at all...

I want my congressman to advocate for the people and needs of his district. That's the point of the house. He should be working on bringing jobs to his district and state (which has higher than the national average unemployment), protecting the beach and ocean (since his entire district abuts the ocean), etc.

Instead we have Allen West. He spends all of his time fear mongering about the end-times like a crazy televangelist. That does zero good for his district, but it sure does ensure that the crazy "the world is ending" conspiracy theorists will vote for his reelection!

He could only pull off this shtick in Florida because the people are so damn stupid and gullible. Yes, keep pounding your chest and repeating weasal words like "honor" and "courage," as if those nebulous concepts make your district's representation in congress effective.
