Republicans worst enemy has been their "niceness" and it usually does them no good. We sit back while the vile left attacks and lies and claims outrageous fiction and with their willing and enabling press, R's were cowed into verbal submission. Not any more, at least with some R's. Allen West is a retired Colonel of our armed forces. He was being disrespected by Wasserman-Schultz and she was nosing into his Congressional District in Florida trying to scare his constituents with her lies about Social Security and Medicare. Well, Allen West would have none of it and HERE is a leftwing article from the Hill which of course makes him out to be bad, Wasserman-Schultz good. Typical.
With West defending his honor and calling Wasserman-Schultz what she really is, both have turned this into a fundraising effort for the campaigns. What I like is R's like West, Christie and Rubio are standing up to the demagogues of the leftwingnut empire and not letting things pass without a response. One of the hardest things I had to take during the Bush2 years was his attempt to stay above the fray. He would not respond to the lies from the left because he did not want to denigrate the office as Clinton did with his sexcapades in the Oval Office.
A commenter on the story from the Hill gave this zinger which I totally agree with.
"What goes around comes around. Wasser-Schultz is a crap talker who finally stepped in it. No Soldier who spent 22 years putting his life in danger would allow that tangle haired little wise mouth to bad mouth him. She's lucky he did it by text, because I'm pretty sure she couldn't stand up to him in a verbal confrontation. He actually has a functioning brain."
Makes me proud that people are now seeing the lefts desperation. These lovelies are even quoting Reagan they are so bereft of principles. In a nutshell this is the meat of the West email to W-S.
“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!.”
HERE is a Washington Times article I found which is very funny. It compares W-S to the old German POW guard from Hogan's Heroes, "I know nothing" Sargent Shultz. What a hoot. Yes West was dissed by W-S and she deserves to be verbally spanked. Maybe Republicans can take a lesson from these new fellows, West, Christie and Rubio and stop being wimps in the profession of debate and rhetoric. Come on, I know you all can do it!
