GRETA VAN SUSTEREN, FOX NEWS HOST: Did you hear what Congressman Allen West said? Well, hold onto your seat. He compared President Obama to a dictator. The congressman made those remarks during a recent appearance on "The Laura Ingraham Show." And to be specific, Congressman West said President Obama showed, quote, "third world dictator-like arrogance" during his budget speech. So what did he mean? Let's ask him.
Congressman Allen West of Florida joins us. Good evening, Congressman. Those are pretty tough words for the president. I know you have a lot of passion about your views, but the words -- any -- you want a do-over on that, or you stand by those words?
REP. ALLEN WEST, R-FLA.: Good evening. Happy Easter, Greta. And I do stand by those words. And perhaps one of the things that many people need to understand is that the truth needs to be said. When I go around and I talk to people down here in my district and we get phone calls, that speech that was given last week Wednesday was absolutely beneath the statesmanship or the atmosphere or the aura of the personality that the president should show.
I am sick and tired of this class warfare, this Marxist, demagogic rhetoric that is coming from the President of the United States of America. It is not helpful for this country and it's not going to move the ball forward as far as rectifying the economic situation in our country. And I'm not going to back away from telling what the truth is.

Ha haaa!!! Go West!
I have to echo Beck’s thoughts on this: I love this man.
Ironically, the TPM article on this is much better, with Video, and this memorable quote:
“I am sick and tired of this class warfare, this Marxist demagogic rhetoric that is coming from the President of the United States of America,” said West.
“It is not helpful for this country, and it’s not gonna move the ball forward as far as rectifying the economic situation in our country. And I am not gonna back away from telling what the truth is.”
There’s a great depth to my conviction, and part of my conviction is telling the truth,” said West.
“I don’t think it’s very presidential when Barack Hussein Obama refers to my colleague, Paul Ryan, as a simple little accountant, either. So I think that when you look at what a community organizer is turning out to be, it does seem to be like a low-level socialist agitator.”
A real man, a true hero. I would follow this man anywhere.
Allen West for president 2012.
No one else.
That is all.
Rep. West is wonderful. I saw him on Greta’s show, and even though she whined at him in that grating voice, he never backed down. We need a whole lot more like him!
Liking what I'm seeing of West, the GOP needs more like him.
Col. West is the answer!!!
Tell it like it is Col!! VERY REFRESHING.
The man speaks the truth.
“A real man, a true hero. I would follow this man anywhere.”
I am with you 100%! He is a true American hero and the kind of leader that this country has to have to survive.
I like his comment that was somewhat like “this is what you get with a community organizer”
What an Uncle Tom! </Jesse Jackson>
As would I.
Simply and perfectly stated.
