Allen West's Bad Week
The Fix's Chris Cillizza awards Rep. Allen West the Worst Week in Washington award. West freaked out because Rep. Debbie Wasserman Sshultz correctly pointed out that West supported Medicare cuts. The video below is Wasserman-Schultz's comments on the House floor. There was no personal attack against West.
West made his attack personal in an email.
You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives.
Wasserman-Schultz's respone has been brilliant. Wasserman-Schultz says West is cracking under the pressure of having to defend cutting Medicare.
Wasserman-Schultz hasn't complained about the attacks against her. The same can't be said about West.
West got elected by portraying himself as a tough guy. West is so tough that he goes on conservative-friendly news outlets to complain that a woman is picking on him. The tea partier dost protest too much.
