Posted on 07/21/2011 4:14:39 PM PDT by Kaslin
Civility: Republican Allen West is refusing to apologize to fellow Floridian and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for calling her "vile, unprofessional and despicable." His only fault was omitting "liar" and "hypocrite."
The dust-up between the two Florida House members purportedly started when Schultz stood up in the House chamber and, after West left, blasted him for backing Rep. Paul Ryan's Medicare reform.
That prompted West to fire off an email that, in addition to "vile," called her a "coward" and "not a lady."
But the dust-up really began when Schultz led a protest outside West's campaign headquarters last October and depicted the black Army veteran's Tea Party supporters as racist Nazis.
"Our protest is different," she said, "because I don't see any swastikas, or any pictures of the president in blackface or burned in effigy here."
That pretty much sums up Schultz, who even in a hyperbolically politicized world takes the prize for making blatantly false accusations about the GOP while attributing the worst possible motives to them. A few choice examples:
On Medicare, she claimed Ryan's plan would "throw you to the wolves, and allow insurance companies to deny you coverage and drop you for pre-existing conditions." It was a total lie, one that FactCheck.org, PolitiFact.com and the Washington Post all called her on.
On the GOP's efforts to battle voter fraud, she claimed Republicans "want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws, and literally and very transparently block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote for Democratic candidates." PolitiFact.com rated this one false, too.

West give in?
Not in this universe...
They were discussing this on “The Five” this afternoon and the rat anchor/host Bob Beckel referred to Col. Allen West as “this thug”. My head nearly exploded - Fox News can KMA.
DNC Chairwoman Doobie Washerwoman Schlutz. A real piece of work!
I do not believe he will give in. But, it would be nice if just ONE pansy ass republican would come to his defense and call these people racist for attacking a black man! The Powderpuff party does not know how to protect their innocent lions. It is about time somebody called out someone in this corrupt D party.
I know very little about West - but off the top of my head I’d say he’d make a good VP for Sarah.
Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (sp? eh- who cares) is just a RACIST for disagreeing with Colonel West
She only said those things about him because he is a black man
I watch the show and I actually like it, but as soon as he opens his trap I mute my TV
Debbie WashmyShorts reminds me of the homely leftist skanks at college beach parties screeching about sexism in the 80’s. She is ugly and mean and now has some political power. People please don’t disregard how dangerous her mouth is today. She is a woman scorned by her own gender and will use all her power to pay people back. Like a young Hillary Clinton.
“”Bob Beckel referred to Col. Allen West as this thug.””
Why on earth aren’t Republicans out there screaming “racist” at that witch? She says her constituents are Medicare recipients. Are they all brain dead or does someone else vote for them? HA - she’s a dem so of course, they have help!
I just noticed your screen name....We’re all going to be that way if this fool and his administration doesn’t get out of town soon!
That's my dream ticket, bro. I go to bed at night praying for it to happen.
“”But, it would be nice if just ONE pansy ass republican would come to his defense and call these people racist for attacking a black man!””
YES YES YES!!!! I would love to see congressional sessions performed like the British Parliament! Just once would be nice...
Dubya Schultz strikes again!
“”She is ugly and mean””
Isn’t it strange that you don’t even need to know their (females) party affiliation once you’ve seen their faces?
I do still watch Fox Biz.
“...The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much”.
If she announces, I’m going to checking him out. Couldn’t think of anyone who she would select - just didn’t seem there was anyone of her caliber and then I read this. It just struck me, he maybe the one.
“I do not believe he will give in. But, it would be nice if just ONE pansy ass republican would come to his defense and call these people racist for attacking a black man!

This is one of the reasons the Republican Party is losing its core base, the Tea Party.
