"Allen West Saved My Life" is the emotional message in the third TV ad "Body Armor," released today by the West for Congress campaign. The following quotes come from the campaign press release introducing the ad.(VIDEO following)

"There are few greater examples of service and sacrifice than putting your own life at risk to protect that of another. That is what Lieutenant Colonel Allen West did in 2003 when he gave his body armor to Sergeant Robert Delgado shortly before their unit moved into Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom," said Tim Edson, Campaign Manager for Allen West.

I've heard him speak a few times and met him once. This is exactly the kind of man he is! He is tough, but very caring and honorable. He's not perfect, but I think he is exactly what America needs right now.

Having worked with the Army for over a decade, I can tell you there a many leaders within that Service with similar qualities. This from a former AF type.

Love the ad.

Compare and contrast with Barry who sent the guy over there without body armor.

After this election I’ll have Colonel West as my Rep and boy am I happy about that.
Replace some garbage who took bribes from drug gangs to a very honorable Allen West.

It would be great to have a Patriot with balls in the White House.

I would vote for him in a flash,instead of the pukes now running.

In a related item, 26% of Obama voters think Allen West played Batman on TV, and therefore had something to do with the Aurora shootings...

My son was in Iraq twice in the early years. In the beginning-most did not have proper helmet liners either causing needless, preventable, head injuries. They had to buy their own or use the crappy one issued to them. There was a doctor who had a son over there that started collecting money to send bunches of good ones to units that did not have them. Just one of the outrages that went/goes on while the number of bottom feeders over here increased/increases by leaps and bounds.

No question, re Allen West - and what we need. And why, he appears to be 'otherwise' ignored by Romney/RNC. . .

Not holding my breath on Romney making "best' choice; they seemed determined to shoot themselves in both feet. Left to only pray they don't.

Rubio and West, top contenders per Repub 'voting choice'; not that this matters to Romney Repub elites....

Herman Cain, Allen West, Sarah Palin.

Because we don’t care what COLOR or SEX our candidates are, but we do want them to at least be AMERICAN.

VOTE THE COMMIES and MUSLIMS OUT OF OFFICE IN NOVEMBER.
