Skip to comments.Allen West would be open for a VP run
Posted on 12/01/2011 10:40:18 AM PST by merrylu
Two Florida Republicans -- though one is far better known for his political career in Arkansas -- are wading into the race for their partys presidential nomination this week.
While no Floridian has ever been added to a national ticket, West said he would be open to running for vice president.

Gomer already had his chance and he’s a RINO too. No thanx.
But West, hells yeah.
Yes I should have edited out that huckabee reference.
Santorum/West? (I doubt cain after west’s latest take on him) or even Newt/west?
West is a good man, a loyal American who has served his country well...and will continue to do so. Very conservative and I like him a lot.
But, IMHO,he was very premature in calling for Cain to quit the race, and played into the progressive/left’s hands in doing so. We cannot allow ourselves or candidates to be initimadated by disgusting, non-credible, un-substantiated hatchet job attacks into giving up...or they will play that tune against every single one.
I’d like to see Congressman West win reelection first.
Cain/West or Newt/West would do for me!
Maybe if he’d kept his mouth shut and not said Cain needed to quit. Now, I don’t think so.
West suggested that Cain drop out, so that is unlikely
That's a math equation to unite and restore the Republic and American greatness!
Sec. of Defense
now, if we could just have Palin on the ticket instead of the collected maggots of DC.

I could not agree more. Well said!
Did he call on Cain to quit the race or did he answer a question about what advice he’d give to Cain considering the new allegation. There is a difference, and truth comes into play.
Me too. Am not happy that his district has been reconfigured in a way that makes it about four points less favorable to GOP.
It bothered me that he said that Cain should drop out. He should be supporting him. I don’t know why our side attacks each other when the Democrats rally around their people.
Col. Huff and Puff West is a fraud in a empty uniform. He came in heavily supported by the tea party ( I gave him money too) chest out talking like some kinda gonna fix this country badass. Well then he starts sucking the toes of John Boner, the drunken crybaby speaker of the house, and that smiling moron Cantor as they romanced him into voting for the debt ceiling and the super committee. After he traitors on the tea party and votes with the RINOS he resumes his mr huff and puff persona then starts touting the fraud BBA that Boner and Cantor tried to pass off on us. I am hugely depressed he didn’t turn out to be the real deal but just another big talking fraud.
Fat chance, after West unbelievably ripped into Cain yesterday, calling him a "distracter" who should "move on" before a single ballot has even been cast. Disgusting, and he should apologize for it. Why not aim his fire at the demonic Obama instead? Herman Cain has not criticized ANY other nominee, nor run ads against them.
...West said he would be open to running for vice president.
West should run for president of the Black Caucus.
That is a lie. Cain is not perfect in that regard either...did you already forget about the stone incident?
I really liked West and was keeping tabs on what he was up to. After yesterday...I could give a flying flip about the guy. He showed me all I need to know..no difference between what was coming out of his lips and the giggling Rove. Deal breaker for me. It matters how you treat people..
That announcement opens the door for the RAT operatives to start paying tramps to say they’ve had affairs with him...
We need this man.
Learn one reason why in this short video:
I have only heard a quick bit on the radio about West suggesting that Cain should drop out.
But the snippet I heard gave no indication that West might have been speaking rather reflectively about the vicious toll being extracted from Cain and his family.
That might be a point in West’s favor...still I remember at the time thinking Why is he sounding off on this now? What does he know that I don’t?
Newt could do a lot worse than tap Allen West for VP.
That was blown WAY out of proportion. He was ASKED if it was insenstive, before he knew that Chris Wallace's assumption was false (that Perry had left it that way). When he found that out he apologized to Rick. What West did was going out of his way to bash Cain, with little rationale, unless of course the party establishment told him to do so in order to get $$$ from the NRCC for his coming tough race.
West was being interviewed by WMAL. At the link is the audio interview and a clarification by West:
That’s excellent! Thank you!
I respect Mr.West. and would vote for him in a heartbeat.
But I disagree with him on the suggestion that Mr.Cain ought
walk away from it-over these speculations probably funded
either by the Obamanation—or by the porn king who Hates
anybody Christian.It’s Tebow time! The same crowd making fun of Tim Tebow—because he is a Christian have made fun of Mr.Cain from the Git-go.Cursed is the man who puts his trust in man..Who is turned from the Lord.Jeremiah 17:5
That’s really good of you to provide the link. Much appreciated.
You’re quite welcome!
He said his advise was for Cain to “end it” because it was a distraction and to quit the race. Do not know how those comments could be misconstrued. I do not agree with them, despite my liking for West.
The media is trying to put me against Herman Cain. I guess its good for them to see two black men against each other. The facts are I am not telling Cain to step down. That is his decision and his only. What I said is the media focus on these incidents and alleged affairs are a distraction, and we as a country need to move on from this subject and get the focus on what the GOP contenders can seriously do for this country.But I heard the initial interview and he definitely at the time was advising Herman to get out of the race.
I am glad he thought better of that...but it should never have been said in the first place.
The same thing applies to Cain, imho.
Agreed. Both men are good men, and loyal Americans who would be many orders of magnitude...eons better than Obama and his progresive/marxist admin and cohorts in the House and Senate.
Agreed. Both are patriots, and have my respect. Was George Washington a politician? Was Dwight Eisenhower? Those are just two that immediately come to mind.
Let’s leave West alone and he will have the opportunity to grow by experience. In 8 years, or 16, he will have an awesome resume. Same for Rubio. Let these gentlemen have the time to learn and grow. We’ll get back to them later.
Your analysis bears repeating.
“West is a good man, a loyal American who has served his country well...and will continue to do so. Very conservative and I like him a lot.
But, IMHO,he was very premature in calling for Cain to quit the race, and played into the progressive/lefts hands in doing so. We cannot allow ourselves or candidates to be intimidated by disgusting, non-credible, un-substantiated hatchet job attacks into giving up...or they will play that tune against every single one.
I am surprised that he took a shot at Cain after what he has been through with Debbie Wasserman Schultz et al.
Really? You wipe it away as a blown out of proportion issue, instead of a “you lie” matter as far as criticism founded or unfounded is concerned...you are a waste and propagandist.
Im not going to say it. Im not going to say it. Tutti-frutti. I know Im going to get in trouble! he told GQ in a forthcoming interview, according to POLITICO Playbook.
GET REAL. CAIN IS NOT SOME PERFECT ‘GOP GOD’ OR ‘SAVIOR.’
So you let slide Cain and not West for stating their thoughts and opiniions?
Get out of my face and get freakin’ real!!! Our country is at stake!
Did he call for Bachmann to exit the race? West did. Get real. Apples and oranges.
Cain needs to step aside and hiring L. Lin Wood as his attorney shows he lacks judgement.
My problem is not with Cain...it is with you and the blinding stars in your eyes about Cain.
Cain is no perfect candidate, business man, or human.
I accept him as an imperfect candidate and recognize all his flaws and gaffes. Calling another candidate racist, tutti-fruiti, and all the other stuff demenstrates he is not this perfection you try to hold him up to be.
Getting the stars out of our eyes and not living in denial of the imperfect nature of our candidates will be more beneficial than holding a discussion based on a stated lie and propaganda.
Here is your lie again: “ Herman Cain has not criticized ANY other nominee, nor run ads against them.”
PS: We also still have freedom of speech that last I checked and Allen West is very much entitled to his last time I checked. Nobody says you have to like his conclusions.
Nor do I. He is exceptionally flawed, as we have seen, and is likely 48 hrs from being done. But West is carrying water for the establishment to go after Cain, and that is unacceptable. P.S. Once again, for you to take Cain's "tutti fruiti" line as an "attack" is just silly. Get over yourself.
