Former Rep. Allen West, R-Fla., was spotted at Trump Tower on Monday, where he reportedly met with Vice President-elect Mike Pence as well as members of the incoming administration’s national security team.

The retired lieutenant colonel also sat down with retired Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, who has been tapped by President-elect Donald Trump to be national security adviser, and K.T. McFarland, who will be deputy national security adviser, The Hill reported.

“Nothing was offered. I mean, they know my reputation very well,” West told pool reporters in Trump Tower following the meeting.

He would be a far better Secretary of State than Giuliani, Romney, or Corker.

Me too.

Especially if it is in a location where he can run for congress again. This time from a district that is not going to be yanked out from underneath him.

Nobody would have given West a second look were he a white man. He is the epitome of the infection of affirmative action that was injected into the party by the Bushes and their neocon allies.

Trump probably has enough sense not to tap someone rejected by voters, as West was. Too bad that sense isn’t more common.

I guess his mommy licked him out of the basement so he had to get a stipend from uncle Jorge Schwartz.

‘Somebody OD’d on “DIPSHIT” pills this morning!’

Indeed, Mr. West has had many low class slurs cast on him.
He protected the lives of his troops.
He is a brave and courageous man.
I hope he can get a position in the Trump Administration where his ability and honor can be used for the nation.

"If it's about the lives of my soldiers at stake, I'd go through hell with a gasoline can."

This man knows leadership - something the Washington Pantywaists and politicians never will.

The Donald is living up to the stated method from his books about finding the best people. Now all he will have to do is turn them loose into the jaws of the entrenched bureaucracy to see who will survive.
