Quote of the Day
"I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, i recognize them as a threat to the gene pool."
Rep. Allen West
That comment should show how unserious West is about governing. If West was to become president he would never get anything accomplish in domestic affairs or foreign policy because he couldn't keep his mouth shut. West will never become president. He will be lucky if he holds on to his House seat. 2012 is not going to be a tea party year.
Update: West is picking a fight with Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz. West's feeling were hurt by what Wasserman-Schultz said about him on the House floor. West lacks discipline. Calling a fellow member of the Florida Congressional delegation "vile, unprofessional, and despicable" is just dumb. Particularly, since West is infamous for picking fights and using over-the-top rhetoric.

Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional ,and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!
I am bringing your actions today to our Majority Leader and Majority Whip and from this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior……which dates back to the disgusting protest you ordered at my campaign hqs, October 2010 in Deerfield Beach.
You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!
Steadfast and Loyal
Congressman Allen B West (R-FL)
