Allen West to Alcee Hastings on Chick-Fil-A: Did you expect filet mignon and caviar?
BizPacReview.com ^ | August 8, 2012 | Michele Kirk

Posted on 08/08/2012 2:40:36 PM PDT by T.O.K.

U.S. Rep. Allen West accused fellow Congressman Alcee Hastings of “political elitism” over comments Hastings made to an online media site about an alleged Chick-Fil-A incident.

Hastings told the Huffington Post that West had offended the entire Congressional Black Caucus about six months ago, when he brought in chicken and biscuits from Chick-Fil-A when it was his turn to provide lunch at a weekly meeting.

He’s mad because an open bar wasn’t supplied.

“’It is the American taxpayers’ dollars being used,’ West said. ‘I don’t feel like it’s my responsibility to go out and get steak and lobster tails for the members of the Congressional Black Caucus.’”

WE don’t either, Colonel West. We don’t either.
G-d, I LOVE this man!

That turkey Alcee Hastings is darn lucky he's not eating his meals in the cafeteria of a federal slammer, not just because of his impeachment for bribery but because of actions as a Congressman.

I had a Chik-Fil-A spicy chicken deluxe for the first time last night. It was an incredible experience. How anyone could be offended by Chik-Fil-A is beyond me. Did West forget the sweet tea?

I personally would prefer fried chicken to steak and lobster.

Alcee Hastings is my current congressional thief.
Due to redistricting Colonel Allwn West will be my new Congressman. One that I can be proud of. Unlike Alcee Hastings who in a prior life was a federal judge who was impeached by the Senate for taking bribes in big time drug cases.
I live in a gerrymandered district made to insure a black in congress/ and these fools sure picked a real turd in the past.

I have as much respect for that group of felonious clowns (West excepted) as I have for the Obspamadorkidiotcretin.

Same here. Best fast food I've ever had.(BTW I could almost understand being upset over forgetting the sweet tea).

I know. I wonder if they’re saying they were offended because of the stereotype? Whatever, they ate it and not a crumb left.

And why are the taxpayers paying for their luncheons? In this economy, they should be brown bagging it like rest of Americans.

With canteens of water. "Here, this is what REAL defenders of the Constitution eat."

This dinner happened six months ago. Why is Hastings griping about it now? To jump on the Chick Fil A hate wagon? Maybe he wants to paint Allen West as a pro Chick Fil A. (Like that's gonna hurt West, snort.) Well, then, Allen West was for Chick Fil A before Chick Fil A was cool. Even before Sarah Palin!

Personally, I don’t know why the taxpayers are paying anything for any of them whatsoever. They’re useless. If they want to ‘caucus’, let them rent a friggin’ room somewhere.

One more reason to get rid of Alcee Hastings — not that we needed one. After his impeachment, he shouldn’t have been elected dog-catcher.

I had my first one last Wed. night. They have a new lifelong customer. I had no idea they were that good!

While CFA has a breakfast chicken biscuit- I think you’d be hard pressed to get a biscuit at lunch.

I think Alcee’s story smells more than his time on the bench

Personally, I think that the American people are a few notches better that a worthless turd of a crook who was impeached for getting his palms greased.

It’s an election year, of course Hastings is looking for attention. CFA is getting more attention than he’s probably had his whole entire career, well, maybe not including that impeachment thing...

No CFA near here, but I’m wearing my new CFA shirt that I bought on line as a political statement.

That’s a really good point. Why can’t they pay for their own food?

He should have served them Ham and Mammies. A particularly vile concoction that was in some C Rats. If that was good enough for a tired grunt to eat, then it should be good enough for them.

Chic Fil A seems to be making Liberals, Dims and LGBT froth at the mouth and hiss just like Holy Water does demons.

Hmmmmmm........we could be onto something here.
