Skip to comments.Politico: Allen West the “Alan Grayson of the Right”
Posted on 11/10/2010 9:32:08 PM PST by RobinMasters
Politicos level of discourse has just plunged into to the lunatic fringe with their groundless slurs against Congressman-Elect Allen West. In a primer for the vanquished, Politico reporter Kasie Hunt outlines a few of the GOP freshman ready-made for cable television out of the massive incoming Republican class. One of them is Lt. Col. Allen West, and she predicts he will become the Alan Grayson of the Right. Ms. Hunt has a lot learn about Lt. Col. West as he takes his place on the national stage.
The longed-for victory of the exemplary American hero, LTC West in Floridas District 22 Congressional race, and the welcome defeat of the foul mouthed House Democrat Alan Grayson in Floridas 8th District amounts to a double-header celebration. In a rebuttal to Politicos thoughtless statement, Warner Todd Hustons post in Breitbarts Big Journalism describes the outrageous character of Alan Grayson in contrast with the righteousness of Allen Wests dignified campaign:

Oh noes... Did West make an ad on ‘Taliban Klein’?
I know almost nothing about LTC West. I do know though that to reach that rank there must be some substantial sense of self discipline including that of a verbal nature. In that sense alone West is a superior man to Alan Grayson.
LTC - Mr. West is a wonderful addition to government. Why can’t we elect more people like this? Are all Liberals so dedicated to their stupid agenda that they can NOT recognize a genuine patriot when they encounter one? He should have won by 80%....
Some day I’d like to see Alan West become our first African American President.
“Some day Id like to see Alan West become our first African American President.”
Ain’t THAT the truth!
The only thing similar about these 2 people are their first names sound similar.
Allen West is a hero, Grayson is a zero!! Have a great Veterans Day LT Colonel West
Allen West is CLASS.
Shuttup, Kasie. Or is that impossible because your feet are planted firmly in your mouth?
I met him briefly at CPAC. My first impression was that he is a man of tremendous honor.
Grayson is a toad with no self-control.
Now even lefties think “Grayson” is an insult? Will wonders never cease.
Lt. Col. West looks like he would tell someone—If I want any chit out of you, I’ll squeeze your head.
Grayson looks like he would just scream like a ninny.
I like West, I hope he doesn’t disappoint.
So she predicts he'll only serve one term and get booted out office in utter disgrace? I'd be willing to wager big cash that doesn't happen.
LtCol West is the only candidate that I gave financial support to in this election. I am very proud that he is my representative. Politico is just full of crap.
Kasie Hunt (heh...) must be a racist.
Isn’t it about time the right stopped referencing Politico as a legitimate news sources. I’m not talking about posting here but I don’t see people (among FOX and what have you) going out of their way to give the Huffington post the same stature they’ve given Politico and yet the two are the same. Blogs run by hyper partisans. Sure, Politico may feature ex-WAPO employees but people kid themselves if they think they were real journalists. Byron York is a real journalist. They aren’t at his level. Infact at this point I’d probably give Arianna’s blog more respect then I would politico given how low they’ve sunk lately.
They are scared to death of the Colonel.
The left is terrified of decent and good.
Colonel West terrifies them.
Leftists become more pathetic everyday.
LTC West is much more photogenic and appears much more intelligent than the Arab 0bama.
He is also a man of accomplishment, unlike 0bama.
Definitely presidential material.
>> Now even lefties think Grayson is an insult?
Can anyone identify the Crest half hidden at the tip of his right lapel?
He was artillery but I can’t place it. I would appreciate an answer.
It is always great to see a good man succeed do you not agree?Good to see Fla get this one right.
Well lefty scumbags it is now the age of the Internet and we have reached the tipping point where your MSM is the venue not only distrusted but completely unenlightening. People en mass now go around you.
God bless Colonel West.
Alan West is one of the most articulate and thoughtful people I’ve ever listened to. He’s head and shoulders above the vast majority in Congress.
And not a teleprompter in sight!
He can put my vote in the bank.
It will be hilarious to watch the Democrat "mainstream" media do everything in its power to ignore Alan West. The last thing they want on their airwaves or in their headlines is a picture of REPUBLICAN congressman Alan West.
I can scarcely imagine the teeth gnashing that must be going on in the Democrat "mainstream" newsrooms these days. I wonder if the scumbags who inhabit those dying newsrooms have formed another secret "journolist" to plot their schemes and keep their stories coordinated?
As truly repulsive as it is to attempt to compare the hero West to the slime...and as angry and as disgusted as I feel about it....the only way to deal with this is to remember..don’t get angry...get even.
We cannot relent! Ever!
I heard a guy on Mark Levin who called in to say he served under West and the caller said he’d follow him into hell.
The guy was so positive and enthusiastic about West! Compare him to the turd wanna be “king” zero that unfortunately got himself enthroned.
Mark this for future reference: If Allen West only serves one term in the house, it’ll be because he moves up a notch or two...
I think maybe as SecDef in Palin’s administration would be nice, hehehe.
Paratroopers jump bacge, I think, but I am a Marine.....
You have every reason to be proud of him.
I shed tears when I learned he won.
West is a man’s man, a leader, a hero, a man of principle, a true-blue conservative and patriot. The racist left MUST demonize him. Get used to it.
He is one of our rising stars. I also hope he does become President.
My saying is; don’t get angry or even, get ahead
The story goes like this, if I don’t mess it up.
While commanding a unit in Iraq, LTC West received intelligence that insurgents were planning an attack on his convoy through a neighboring town. They captured one of the insurgents, who happened to be a policeman, and questioned him. He refused to talk. LTC West got a grip on the guy and muscled him outside into the yard. He got the insurgent on his knees and fired a round very,very close to the guy’s head. The guy sang like a canary, giving critical information. The attack on the convoy was prevented and lives of the civilians in town, as well as lives of his men, were saved. Unfortunately, none of this was appreciated by the powers that be, who like to play nicey-nice, and LTC West resigned his commission. Thus, we have him in Congress!
How can they make this comparison. First of all the Colonel has not even started yet. He will be sworn in two months from now. The Colonel is still speaking as a civilian. Comparisons cannot be made at all about these two.
I put the lefty pricks @ Pppppolitico in the same group of dead media we call the Lamestream....I do like to go to Politico and watch the trashing the Left takes in the comments.
Their are a lot of conservative watchers taking it to these lying cowardly punks....I’m seeing a new day in America.
They are terrified of an intelligent Black man. They are terrified of a patriotic Black man. They are terrified of an honorable Black man. They are terrified of a Republican Black man.
They are terrified because by their own definition, he could never be called a racist, and all they have to counter conservatives is the fabricated charge of racism.
Nope, the jump wings are at the top of his left. Some other airborne pin is right below it. I would say the one on his right is some sort of mechanized airborne but I’ll keep checking.

Personnel may not wear foreign badges that are awarded only as cloth badges. Personnel may not wear foreign badges that cannot be worn properly because of size or configuration. 312 AR
That's strange - Allen West doesn't appear to be at all genetically defective to me.
>>Kasie Hunt (heh...) must be a racist.<<
Wow, the Left have really been showing their true colors about Blacks as of late:
1) Supporting the “Cracker” Hoyer over Clyburn for House Leadership position
2) Now disssing on West
It really is sad how most Blacks in this country will tolerate the slavery of their White Liberal Masters for a few handouts.
I think most Blacks have given up on themselves.
Consider the source. West is a man who we would run through a wall for. Grayson is an unmedicted Manic Depressive who needs to be behind a wall.
