Pencil-pushing weasel Patrick Murphy calls Allen West a ‘coward’
BizPacReview.com ^ | 2/1/2012 | Jack Furnari

Posted on 02/01/2012 12:58:44 PM PST by Jacvin

Today, Patrick Murphy, the underdog in the Democratic primary for Congressional District 22, called incumbent U.S. Rep. Allen West -- a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army, and a combat veteran, mind you -- "a coward."

Responding to West’s decision to run in a newly drawn district further north, Murphy posted the following statement on his website: Allen West went from talking tough this weekend and telling progressives to "get the hell out of this country" to abandoning the people who elected him. There is no other way to interpret this: Allen West is a coward. The truth is that the maps are far from set and I will continue to monitor the redistricting process closely. Forget that Murphy has purposely twisted West’s words and taken them out of context. I'm not even going to bother with those offenses.

It is an absolute outrage that Murphy would dare use such a despicable word to describe a combat veteran and an officer of the U.S. military -- any combat veteran and officer, for that matter, regardless of their political views or affiliation.

Ever seen LTC West in a tee shirt? I’m pretty sure he can kick A$$ with the best if need be.

West is endorsing his Republican replacement in District 22 while he himself is running in the new configured District.

Good deal - good strategy.

An officer and a gentleman who has served his country like Allen West should never be called that by a Democrat slime ball.

Yes, and, Bob Beckel DEMANDED West apologize for his totally insensitive remarks regarding Obozo and other libs getting the hell out of the U.S. He talked about how outrageous West’s comments were. I’m wondering where he was during 8 years of abusive statements uttered by liberal democrats and hollyweird elites toward Bush?

It would be entertaining to see Patrick Murphy call Allen West a coward to his face.

Beckel's like one of those talking dolls. He spouts all the canned liberal lies automatically. I'd love to see what would happen if he opened his big bullying demand to West face-to-face.

LTC West should challenge both Murphy & Beckel to meet him in the Hand to Hand Pit for a little exercise. We know that he would give both of them a “John Wayne Counseling Session.”

This pencil necked geek has been hiding in his office counting beans while West defended his country. Murphy is lucky that he lives in a country that allows him to spew such crap.

He’s going to hell, not to Congress.

Pardon the hate, with some of these commies, I just can't supress it.

“Uhhh? When the state “redistricts” you like that, technically speaking, the voters “left” first.”

Col. West was seriously disrespected by the RINOs in the FL State Legislature. He himself said he didn’t understand why they have tried to “redistrict him” out of a winnable district in the redistricting process. The GOP is effed up everywhere. The Romneybots want all the conservatives out and this is one way to do it. They are $hitscared that guys like Col. West will prevail and upset their ongoing “deal” with the RATs.

Col. West is a coward because he outsmarted the dems by not playing by their slimy redistricting of the state? Would ole Murph have the courage to call Col. West a coward to his face? Who's really the coward here?

Exactly what I was thinking.

While he is at it, he might as well invite the ACLU studmuffins who went to court to plead for his district to be redrawn full of Tax-Eating 'Rat Trash, for the purpose of pushing West out of the Congress.

Come on down and get you some, girly-boyz!

Nope! I hadn’t seen that before. I note the misspelled the Congressman’s name. They referred to him is “Jim Moran.” It should have been “Jim Moron.”

“Murphy likes to talk about being a “green contractor,” whatever that means”

I think it means one of these contractors who seeks government money and favors because he’s too much of a coward to compete on the free market.

Allen West is too much of a real man to kick the ass of an unarmed, unmanned weasel like Murphy. But, I wouldn't be surprised if a whole lot of veterans would do it for him. Being on LtC West's facebook page, it's almost shocking how much work he does on behalf of veterans. The man is a tireless advocate.

"Many of you may be aware of Lt. Colonel Allen West’s own act of heroism and sacrifice when he gave up his body armor to a young soldier who lacked adequate protection during Operation Desert Storm- that particular body armor subsequently saved that soldiers life after he was shot in the chest."

When they change his district to 57% Democrat, I’d call the maneuver an end run around the enemy.

Do you think pencil neck weasel Patrick Murphy would rather take the Survivor challenge with Allen West...

Underwater?

At the track?

Or, on the open road perhaps?
