Allen West's Gentlemanly Behavior ^ | 7/25/2011 | Star Parker

Posted on 07/25/2011 4:56:58 AM PDT by Servant of the Cross

Florida Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), also Democratic National Committee chair, suggested that the nasty email she got from Congressman Allen West (R-FL), responding to her attack on him in the House, resulted from him being “under pressure.”

Of course, Allen West is under pressure.

As is every freedom loving American, as we watch our great country sink.

In two and a half years, a left wing Democrat president along with a left wing Democrat congress, controlled by the likes of Ms Wasserman Schultz, have changed this country so fundamentally it is not clear at all to what extent we can recover.

In just two and half years, they’ve increased federal spending a trillion dollars. It took George W. Bush, the largest spender since President Johnson, eight years to accomplish this.

The national debt stood at $10.6 trillion when Barack Obama became president. Now, two and a half years later, it’s at $14.3 trillion. A forty percent increase.

Obamacare has nationalized one sixth of the economy. The Dodd-Frank financial services law brings unprecedented government control over our banking and financial services sector.

The bailout of General Motors changed the American auto industry forever, opening the door to corporations becoming a subsidiary of the US government.

Now in that spirit, the Obama administration is trying to prevent Boeing from relocating plane production from the state of Washington, where unions are crippling its business, to South Carolina, a right to work state.

The Congressional Budget Office now projects that debt will equal 100% of our GDP in ten years.

Even if Republicans succeed in extracting several trillion dollars in spending cuts from our president in exchange for raising the debt limit, this barely dents the massive new debt build-up.

Republicans, like Allen West, who were elected in the 2010 electoral backlash, are trying to do something to save our future. One is the Cut, Cap, and Balance bill that the House just passed, which was the focus of Wasserman Schultz’s attack on West.

Wasserman Schultz got on West for supporting this bill, calling this a platform for cutting Medicare for the seniors in his district.

Let’s get things straight.

The threat to seniors is Obamacare.

It cuts $500 billion out of Medicare to pay for its new socialized medicine regime.

Here’s the Kaiser Family Foundation and the Washington Post on this:

“Medicare’s chief actuary, Rick Foster, estimated that the law (Obamacare) could reduce projected Medicare spending by more than $575 billion over 10 years.”

And contrary to the grand lie under which Obamacare was sold, that it will save money and cut the deficit, CBO now projects that health care spending under this regime will double by 2035.

Every senior in the nation should be trembling about what Wasserman Schultz has helped make law of this land.

What should we expect? We have turned our lives, health, and pocketbooks over to the same humble geniuses who told us that $850 billion in stimulus spending would create 4 million jobs and prevent unemployment from going over 8 percent.

Today one and half million fewer Americans are working than when Barack Obama became president and unemployment stands at 9.2 percent.

West explained the vitriol of the left toward him, one of two black Republicans in the House, as stemming from his “being the guy that got off their 21st century plantation.”

It’s more. They are also obsessed with getting the whole nation on it. And Ms Wasserman Schultz and her left wing friends in government are succeeding.

Of course Allen West feels pressure. Every American who cares about their job, their future, and their children’s future is stressed out.

Given the damage inflicted by Wasserman Schultz and her party to our nation, Allen West has been quite the gentleman.

How does she explin why she attacked him in the first place. Because she is a nasty harridan scumbag ?

IMHO it was a preemptive strike, they see his potential as a VP for Sarah and they needed one of their low level thugs pull a metaphorical political kneecapping on the Col. and she was chosen to do so.

Man talk about sending in the wrong person to get the job done, if anything it has raised Congressman West status.

Isn’t it racist to suggest that West should be given a whipping (taken to the woodshed) by his “masters” in the leadership?

“”Who made the email public?””

It was reported at the time that Congressman West copied his email to several Congressional leaders.

They will stand up for West, just like the leadership has come to the aid of Sarah Palin, in the past.
