Skip to comments.Allen West slams tea party "schizophrenia"
Posted on 07/29/2011 9:09:32 AM PDT by Outraged At FLA
Basically goes on to call the tea party opposition schizophrenia.. Him and Laura bash the tea party.
WTH happened to West? Did we have a tear in the space-time continuum or did the DC insider virus finally get into his system?
the RATS and RINOs have been looking for a way to kill off the Tea Party, looks like they found it.
O’Reillyham and West then go on to say that if you do not vote for the Boehner plan then you are voting for Pelosi and Reid and Obama.. Traitors..
In fact if not name we elected a third party to Congress last election. Republicans haven’t figured it out yet.
I said the same thing about the Tea Party “tunnel vision” folks on another thread earlier today.
The TEA Party has been consistant. It’s West, Boener and their ilk who have flip-flopped.

22 years in the Army of the U.S taught him about chain of command and following leadership.
If anyone is schizo, it’s West.
All the tea party talk, and he quickly becomes a foot soldier for the Republican establishment and trillions more in debt.
Conservatives who oppose any raise to the debt ceiling are the only ones who have been sane and consistent and responsible in this whole thing.
It looks like Allen West was a faux conservative at election time.
So Alan West, Paul Ryan, and Thomas Sowell are all RINO’s for supporting the Speaker now? OK.
Barry’s state run commie “media” now has the GOOBERS running scared. Oh well, we almost kept the country from going over the cliff. Barry and his commie ‘RATS love to whine, piss and moan about the America they “inherited”. Imagine the America our grandchildren are going to “inherit”.
Last I checked, West is a Representative in the United States House. That means that his chain of command comes directly from his constituents!
Boehner is nothing more than the head of a caucus in the House. West should answer to his constituents, not to Boehner!
You don't want a bunch of schizophrenics supporting you anyway. Good luck in '12, Allen.
Sheeeeyit. You watch. He'll be kissing Tea Party ass like a St. Bernard next year.
I’m not dead
he is right in a way.
we have lunatics demanding signing of this or that pledge, we have people who are only looking at the short term rather than the long term.
It can be frustrating. I have met some of the wackos of the fringes, left and right, and they have no mental capacity to see anything beyone what THEY want.
Voted to sustain the Pigford reparations fraud in the billions of $$$.
Refered to Islamic slaughter at Ft Hood as a “tragedy”.
And now this..
If one follows that line of thinking - can anyone see a future for the Tea Party other than as a fringe element of <5% of voters?
All Boner’s plan does is limit the debt ceiling race and put in some boutique cuts so we can do this all again in 6 months. There is no real plan just a punt. Reid will take it, rape it, and send back a turd with the help of McConnell’s plan and Boner will cave.
So by supporting Boner’s plan, what exactly is he and everyone supporting?
It is really working out great bucking old hapless "Boner", isn't it? It must have brought such joy to so many hearts on here watching Reid and Obama spike the ball on his dagger ridden corpse.
aah a sensible voice. thanks :)
Boehner’s bill is a pig and does absolutely nothing substantive to our debt situation. It’s another kicked can.
West would’ve better served his constituency if he’d sat back with other TEA Partiers and said, “No mas.”
At this point, no.
This one is easy. Obama, Pelosi, Reid, every congressional Democrat, every MSNBC Marxist is working and cheering the failure of Boeghner’s bill to pass. Most importantly they are united in fighting for their socialist goals to destroy Republicans first, then use the power to expand the socialist gains of 2009-2010. Republicans on the other hand are fighting each other, some joining Democrats to defeat this bill( with a different objective obviously) , others worried about the Party losing to Dems and supporting it. Obama couldnt have imagined the luck he is having with this.
I like West. He wants to beat Democrats.
Could be what you’re saying.
I also wonder if some of the leadership RINOS helped him stay safe after his comments to Wasserman Schultz and that now they are calling in a debt to be paid.
That's why I only lasted 8 1/2. That, and the application of what I learned at a Jesuit university. It led to, shall we say "conflicts" with certain superior officers. LOL!
Funny thing was, I had excellent evaluations from superiors that welcomed independent thought from their officers.
It’s time to make the TEA Party a real party, not the “illegitimate” stepchild of the Repugs.
Now, who has demonstrated herself once again as the spokesperson for RINO’s and the Washington Elites is Laura Ingraham.
As an officer, he was the leadership and chain of command. It also taught him to make decisions on his own when he needed to and follow through if that decision was wrong.
With all due respect, how is the Tea Party to blame for wanting good fiscal policy? Is it because they want to block the most recent Boehner bill? The bill deemed DOA in the Senate before it ever gets voted on? The bill that would be, is being, used by Reid to cobble together a compromise of Boehner’s, McConnell’s and his own plan? How would passage of Boehner’s plan yesterday stop that from happening? I just don’t understand the anger at the Tea Party; especially from people on this forum.
A plan (CCB) has already passed the House. It too was DOA in the senate. But the House can stand on the fact that they have submitted a plan. If this (or any other plan) can be deemed DOA by the Senate, then why can’t the House notify Reid than anything he cobbles together will automatically be deemed DOA in the House? Tit-for-tat.
Frankly, the big roadblock is Obama. He’s desperate for a plan with no strings, that lasts until after the election. The Dems are covering for him. And whatever Reid comes up with will be suitable to Obama. Thus, we lose. So, how again is the Tea Party to blame?
Or, am I senseless because of my neanderthal genes?
At this point you have to step back and wonder if West was a stealth rat all along. Yikes. Some people were even throwing West's name out there as a potential presidential candidate. No. Freaking. Thanks.
Laura been bashing Tea Party regularly now on this issue. I was never a huge fan of hers but definitely not a fan now. Palin said it best when asked about the debt ceiling. She said why would there be a need to raise it if we cut our spending. That sums it up perfectly.
So by supporting Boners plan, what exactly is he and everyone supporting?
The coming disaster due to out of control spending.
And your plan is? Full frontal charge by 1/2 of The House of Representitives at the Senate, White house and most of the American people? Great plan, let me know how that works out for you.
Laura is clearly more interested in getting pinched on the behind at cocktail parties by establishment country clubbers than she is in supporting us grass roots TEA people. Wow, whatever happened to Ingraham?
By the way, West tells a whopper of a lie in this clip. He talks about Obama wanting a $2.4 TRILLION raise in the debt ceiling, and claims they didn’t give it to him...because they passed “cut, cap and balance.” What he doesn’t tell you is that “cut, cap and balance” raises the debt ceiling by exactly $2.4 TRILLION dollars. Exactly what Obama wants.
He’s hoping you’re ignorant of the facts of the matter, and stupid enough to believe what’s coming out of a politicians mouth when his lips are moving.
Then the voice says, "We didn't do that for any particular reason. We really don't want anything from you yet. We just want you to know we mean business. You will get instructions later on."
That is the only plausible explanation for how hard-conservative patriots go to DC, then turn on a dime into RINO's, appeasers, and backstabbers.
22 years should have taught him that "winners don't compromise"!
I sure wish Boehner was more like Pelosi, using obscene amounts of taxpayer money to buy votes. Sheeeeesh!
McConnell is the one who should lose his job over this mess. The Dems were on the defensive until this feckless idiot opened his useless piehole.
“And your plan is? Full frontal charge by 1/2 of The House of Representitives at the Senate, White house and most of the American people? Great plan, let me know how that works out for you.”
No, let’s use your plan and join the rest of the democrats and pass their agenda. Go hide under your bed you fool..
LIMBAUGH Gets it, Levin gets it, What the heck is going on????? Ingram and West just BLEW IT. I won’t trust them anymore if they can’t figure this out.
Yeah, what's with that?? How come the word "ATROCITY" is NEVER used in the news? That's what these acts are, atrocities. I wish I could call out everyone who uses "tragedy" instead of "atrocity" whenever heinous acts are committed. Drives me nuts!
I think “shrinking the government” also means reducing the budgets and not just reducing the amount of projected increased spending by a minimal percentatage in the future. Ask any congressperson what programs are getting less money in 2012 than they received in 2011. I would go for “Shrinking the spending NOW”.
Do you suppose if Congress doesn’t increase the debt limit, they will still get a pay raise? I’m for freezing gov’t salaries, just like SS has been frozen for a couple of years.
The House controls the purse strings.
The Republicans control the House.
Not that you’d know it watching these freaks of nature.
