.Allen West's new ad: The most brutal clip of 2012?
The video: The campaign season has seen its share of vicious attack ads, but freshman Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) has just released what might be the most brutal campaign commercial of the year. (Take a look at the 30-second video below.) The spot begins with a montage spotlighting the controversial, blunt-spoken Tea Party favorite's military career, saying that on Feb. 16, 2003, West, then an Army colonel, was at Fort Hood, Texas, where he had just received deployment orders, and was preparing his men to go to war. Then it cuts to a picture of West's Democratic opponent, Patrick Murphy, and says that on the same night, Murphy was in South Beach, Fla., getting kicked out of a nightclub for fighting, "covered in alcohol and unable to stand." Murphy, who was 19 at the time and has described the night as the biggest mistake of his life, then confronted and verbally assaulted a police officer, and was taken to jail. The ad concludes: "Two men, a country in crisis. You decide."
The reaction: Wow, this takes nasty to a whole new level, says Aaron Blake at The Washington Post. Juxtaposing your opponent's police mug shot with pictures of you in uniform in a war zone is about as in-your-face as it gets. Well, Murphy started it, says Michael Warren at The Weekly Standard. Last month, a Democratic ad portrayed West, "who is black, cartoonishly punching a white woman." Talk about a low blow.

I hope Romney is taking notes... THIS is how you win against these leftist thugs. Saying Obama is a nice man who wants to help the middle class just like you do, only your plan is better, just isn’t going to cut it.
Nice to see a man with beans!
Don’t Mess With The Marines.
This is a great commercial if you ask me. The RATS need to be called out for who they are and what they have done.
Very nice ad..GO WEST !
I do hope that Romney takes note.
Brutal? It’s awesome! The guy that calls it nasty is ridiculous— these were actual events that took place on the same day and show true character!
This ad is fantastic. There is an ad out here in CA playing on the radio for Prop 32 (paycheck protection) linking the CTA to killing a bill that would have made it easier for teachers accused of molesting their student to get fired. It hits hard. Probably not hard enough for this doomed State.
I note that the first campaign commercial to feature Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa's parliamentary triple God play in Charlotte was from Col. West's organization.
Or Army AIRBORNE either - which is what Lt Col West was...LOL
So was Netanyaho - an Israeli Airborne commando. He and West are fast friends - looks like the exchanged T-shirts. (Here West is going on a charity drive - on his 'Hog"I would love to see this man as Sec. of Def. - and one day - president
ROMNEY!!! Pay attention!!! This is what you do in a knife fight.
The truth is not ugly or viscous. It is simply the truth.
Murphy screwed up. He had reached the age of accountability. He knew what he was doing. His character was formed by the time he was 12. His character is no good.
Toughsky shitsky Murphy.
I ask my folks to ask themselves three questions when reporting unsavory information:
1. Is it accurate?
2. Is it the truth?
3. Would an independent observer see it as malicious or vengeful not serving any purpose?
Frankly, in all the excitement, I lost count.
I could give it to Romney, or I could give it to West.
Do you feel lucky, punk?
No. I'm giving my money to West.
I'm tired of empty chairs.
West for President!!
“Dont Mess With The Marines.
LTC Allen West was US Army and not USMC. He is all warrior!
