Posted on 07/21/2011 4:14:39 PM PDT by Kaslin
Civility: Republican Allen West is refusing to apologize to fellow Floridian and DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz for calling her "vile, unprofessional and despicable." His only fault was omitting "liar" and "hypocrite."
The dust-up between the two Florida House members purportedly started when Schultz stood up in the House chamber and, after West left, blasted him for backing Rep. Paul Ryan's Medicare reform.
That prompted West to fire off an email that, in addition to "vile," called her a "coward" and "not a lady."
But the dust-up really began when Schultz led a protest outside West's campaign headquarters last October and depicted the black Army veteran's Tea Party supporters as racist Nazis.
"Our protest is different," she said, "because I don't see any swastikas, or any pictures of the president in blackface or burned in effigy here."
That pretty much sums up Schultz, who even in a hyperbolically politicized world takes the prize for making blatantly false accusations about the GOP while attributing the worst possible motives to them. A few choice examples:
On Medicare, she claimed Ryan's plan would "throw you to the wolves, and allow insurance companies to deny you coverage and drop you for pre-existing conditions." It was a total lie, one that FactCheck.org, PolitiFact.com and the Washington Post all called her on.
On the GOP's efforts to battle voter fraud, she claimed Republicans "want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws, and literally and very transparently block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote for Democratic candidates." PolitiFact.com rated this one false, too.

Very well said, and especially with the unemployment going up again
COl West is a hero who saved his troops
How would you like to wake up in the morning and hear this Bitch yapping?
FOX Network are not doing themselves any favors by showing Beckel and Colmes. The two have no contributions to make whatsoever.
I am just curious if you ever watch FOX News? Fox Network has nothing to do with the cable news channel. No one has to listen to to these 2 lunatics or any other liberal lunatic. That is why you have a remote control.
Libtards know DSW is stepping into an abyss poking Col West in the eye and could experience some serious blowback from blacks and minorities
Also they know DSW was breaking congressional house rules and will be used to shut her pie hole since the house is run by the GOP
I’d go to bed drunk, and puke when I saw her face in the morning!
Just defend him and leave the racist stuff out of it
So it’s about others ‘We the People’ and not himself. OK now. So that’s a bit of confirmation that I felt he is of the caliber of SARAH but yet know so little about him. Thanks.
Can you imagine....... If a white Pubbie said that about a Black DemocRAT? Sheila Jackson Lee would be on the House floor screaming “racism” as would many others.
