Allen West's Wife Defends Her Husband

Townhall Magazine subscribers got to know a little bit more about GOP Rep. Allen West's accomplished wife Angela in our June issue, and now, she is featured in a new campaign ad defending her husband, saying "recent attacks on my husband go too far."

Here's Angela, in her own words:

Angela

And here's another exclusive excerpt from our June feature on Allen West, written by Katie Pavlich, that tells you a little more about Angela's resume:

When they met, West was stationed out of Fort Riley, Kan., and described himself as a lonely, single artillery captain. Angela, whose father had also made a career out of serving in the military, was working as a consultant on Wall Street in New York City.

"For awhile, we were doing the long-distance thing,” West says. “I finally said, ‘Look, if this is serious and it’s going to happen, let’s take it another level, because I just can’t be running up to New York,’ and, you know, being a southern guy, New York was never kind of like my fancy anyhow.”

West must have been quite the charmer, because Angela ended up making the decision to leave the big city lights for the Great Plains. ...

Once in Kansas, Angela quickly readjusted and became the first African-American professor in the College of Business at her alma mater, Kansas State.

“She’s sharp,” West says, adding she holds both an MBA and a doctorate.

Colonel West knew something that lots of men don’t recognize: smart is sexy! Good for them both.

She comes across as very warm and obviously in love with her husband, beautiful family. Unlike comrade obamov...who came across as so insincere, especially when he called her “sweetie” at the debate. And I dicovered later, he didn’t have to schedule it for that night, no surprise that Romney gave him a jab, paraphrasing - “you’d rather be here with me”.

That “sweetie” remark made me gag and everyone else in the room too except for those dumb swooning single liberal women. MO looked anything but sweet when she joined him on stage after the wipeout. MO just loves the attention and having the camera on her.

The day I see the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court issuing the oath of office to Allen with his wife at his side is the day I’ll cry out of joy to God without control for a week.

I just sent him another $50. I would send more, but the kids are in college.

OBTW, I was at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune when LCol West was assigned to II MEF (an exchange tour). We served together on a contingency planning team. LCol West was very impressive then.

Not to be outdone, I’ll third and fourth it. He gets another 50 for having a beautiful, smart and truly accomplished partner in life.

WOW!

Compare that picture of a loving, attractive American couple with one of the current affirmative-action attention whores that currently infest the White House.

Someone with half a brain should be able to see the contrast between sincerity and falsehood written on their faces.
