Skip to comments.Allen West Tells Reporter ‘I Don’t Want Your Endorsement’
Posted on 09/02/2012 7:18:42 AM PDT by bramps
You gotta love Allen West. He shoots straight from the hip and tells a reporter from a particular paper that endorses his opposition and tells him he doesnt want their endorsement. In fact, he tells them to keep endorsing the guys that lose.
This is the entire article. He also has a video.

What a pathetic anachronism newspaper endorsements are.
BOOM! Another Allen West homerun!
BOOM! Another Allen West homerun!
God Bless him. I'm so proud to have him protecting me and my family.
Concur, with exception of pointing out that he’s *brilliant*! The way he cuts down his opposition with concrete facts gives me a thrill up my cerebrum.
Thanks for the reminder that we haven’t sent this patriot a campaign donation yet. Mitt Romney has millions to spend, but we need to finance good candidates like Col. West, who need our help.
I’m just wondering when some “purist” is going to chime in on what a RINO West is.
This seems to be a pattern here on FR, and it is getting old, very old.
I hope I’m around to see him as POTUS, Hoorah.
He talks the talk and walks the walk...
If someone were to post a link on which I can give this gentleman a campaign contribution, I would surely do it.
I love his retort to the journalist. Here in Louisville, if I don’t have time to research the local races, I read the Courier-Journal and vote for the opponent of whoever they endorse.
Warning about the link. It takes you to one of those websites that won’t let you hit the back button to leave the page.
Maybe because it opens in a new window and there is nowhere to “go back” to. Just close the window.
I continue to nurse my hope that I might one day be able to vote for this man for president. However, considering what the GOP has become, I doubt they would allow him to get anywhere near the office.
I did not have any problem with it!!
This is not Professor Cornel West we’re talking about. Bring your knowledge up to date please and read what Colonel West is saying. Your way off base here man.
Live in Fla.
Our local paper ran a story about how he called out the reporters in attendance to point out the “racism” of the Democratic party.
Right in their face, not afraid to tackle the realities of life.
Voted for him in the primary, and will again in the general...
I even left a couple of comments...which is exceedingly rare for me, but Allen West is an exceedingly rare man.
There are Allen West signs going up all over my street - i have to get one!
I think he is going to win!
Palm Beach Post, a rag of unrivaled partiality, never met a Democrat that wasn’t better than G!d.
Allen’s using the same strategy as the new Maine Governor, who slams ‘em between the eyes, and watches his #’s climb. Maybe other Republican Candidates will catch on someday.
I think most of us understand we have to fight with the “army” we have, after each primary.
probably won’t happen . Col. West is top notch,
I think you misinterpreted his comment.
I think he is PRO Colonel West, and lamenting that someone might chime in soon and call him a RINO, something that would be wrong in this case, and a pattern recently on FR he laments.
I think he will appreciate your defensiveness on behalf of Col West, but it is misdirected!
Thank you for that link; it’s very much appreciated. I just went in and made a contribution. He is an outstanding congressman and I hope he will go on to bigger things in the future. God knows, we sure need more like him.
That bears repeating. Unfortunately RINO has devolved to meaning, "anyone who disagrees with me, on anything.".
Allen West is a Strong Black Man. Meanwhile barrack hussein is still the first gay president.
Thanks bramps. I thoroughly enjoyed the video.
Indeed he is! I suspect it is the anti-war/military people who are fighting to keep him on the sidelines. Col. West is one fine American and one fine soldier.
Where is the evidence that Col. West is a RINO? I have yet to see any. In fact, I wish he was the nominee instead of Romney.
“The way he cuts down his opposition with concrete facts gives me a thrill up my cerebrum.”
That comment will make Crissy Mathews get all wee-wee’d up should he see or hear it.
You misinterpreted my comment.
I am a very strong supporter of Col. West. I hope he seeks higher office someday, because we need men like him in a leadership position.
I was lamenting the fact that many on FR will call him a RINO. I know this to be true. On at least one occasion, he cast a vote that some of the purists on this board disagreed with. Charges of RINO! flew left and right.
Sometimes I really think leftist trolls masquerading as conservatives meander throughout FR, hoping to foment dissension and disgust. Their objective is to steer some of us to a 3rd party or to stay home on Election Day. This year, this may be the only chance they have of getting Obama re-elected.
I’m a couple miles outside West’s district, but I’d consider moving just to be able to pull the lever for him.
How I love this man. I pray for him.
Not on my phone.
Second. Buchanan was first.
vote for the opponent of whoever they endorse.*******
When I was raising my kids and didn’t have time to figure out who was who in local elections, I would look at who the unions were supporting and vote for the other guy...:O)
