Rep. Allen West faces tough questions at town hall in Pompano Beach
sun-sentinel.com ^ | May 17, 2011 | Anthony Man, Sun Sentinel

Posted on 05/18/2011 5:00:20 AM PDT by Dubya-M-DeesWent2SyriaStupid!

Rep. Allen West, R-Plantation, delivered a vintage performance Tuesday — full of confidence, never backing down — even when facing a somewhat restive audience posing sometimes hostile questions. Judging from the applause, most of the town hall audience of about 300 at the Pompano Beach Civic Center was supportive of West. And when several people who didn't like the congressman, what he was saying, or the format interrupted with shouts from the floor, the majority's displeasure was clear. Anne Deon, of Fort Lauderdale, repeatedly yelled out a demand that Congress increase taxes on big corporations and people in the crowd yelled, "Lady, this isn't 'Romper Room,'

"Lady, you're flapping. Sit down," and "Nobody came to hear you talk." After leaving in a huff, Deon said she didn't want to sit through West's opening remarks and see if he addressed her concerns during the question-and-answer part of the meeting because "he should get to the questions first. He's going to drone us to sleep."

Democratic activists and the liberal group MoveOn.org urged West critics to attend, and several criticized the format, which required people to submit questions written on cards. There didn't appear to be an effort to censor the questions. Moderator Ric Green, president of the Greater Pompano Beach Chamber of Commerce, culled the question cards without the presence of West's staff, pitching those that didn't have a question or that included statements such as one woman's "I love you!" Green, describing himself as being as neutral as Switzerland, said there were no restrictions.

""He did fabulous," said Flo Mannino, of Lighthouse Point. "I think he should run for president."

""I think he should run for president." John Foley, a Palm Beach County leader of MoveOn.org, which is politically opposed to just about everything West believes, said he's a tough opponent. "He does fairly well. He can think on his feet.""

When will people learn that you do not tax Corporations, you only tax the people who buy their product.

The tax is passed on to the consumer.

Tax them if you like you only increase the price of their product.

"Written questions and shouts from the audience wondered about tax breaks for the wealthy and demands that corporations pay more taxes. West twice responded by noting news reports that General Electric Co. paid no taxes in 2010 — and that GE's CEO leads President Barack Obama's panel of nongovernment economic advisers."....make them look like the fools they are....Go Allen!!!

Congressman Allen West Bio

Allen B. West (born February 7, 1961) is U.S. Representative-elect for Florida's 22nd congressional district. He is a retired United States Army Lieutenant Colonel elected to represent Florida's 22nd district in Congress in the United States House of Representatives elections, held on November 2, 2010. Lieutenant Colonel Allen West (US Army, Retired) was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, and is third of four generations of military servicemen in his family. His parents instilled in him a very basic principle, love of God and country.

In 2004, when it was time to retire from more than twenty years of service in the US Army, he brought his wife and two young daughters to Broward County, Florida, where he taught high school for one year. He then returned to Afghanistan as an advisor to the Afghan army, an assignment he finished in November 2007.

Allen West received his Bachelors degree from University of Tennessee and Masters degree from Kansas State University, both in political science. He also holds a Master of Military Arts and Sciences from the US Army Command and General Staff Officer College in political theory and military operations.

"Education is the great equalizer," he says. "With a good education, any child in America can live his dream."

Allen West knows that for our children to live their dreams, they need to be safe. He has served in several combat zones: in Operation Desert Storm, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was battalion commander for the Army's 4th Infantry Division, and in Afghanistan, where he trained Afghan officers to take on the responsibility of securing their own country.

In his Army career, Col. West has been honored many times, including a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals (one with Valor), and a Valorous Unit Award. He received his valor award as a Captain in Desert Shield/Storm, was the US Army ROTC Instructor of the Year in 1993, and was a Distinguished HonorGraduate III Corps Assault School.

He proudly wears the Army Master parachutist badge, Air Assault badge, Navy/Marine Corps parachutist insignia, Italian parachutist wings, and German proficiency badge (Bronze award). Allen is an avid distance runner, a PADI Master certified SCUBA diver, motorcyclist, and attends Community Christian Church in Tamarac, Florida.

Excellence is a West family tradition. His wife, Angela, holds an MBA and PhD. and works as a financial planner. His oldest daughter, Aubrey, attends Archbishop McCarthy HS and his youngest daughter, Austen, attends Parkway Christian School.

While serving in Taji, Iraq, on August 20, 2003, as commander of the 2d Battalion, 20th Field Artillery Regiment, Lieutenant Colonel West was in charge of an interrogation of a civilian Iraqi police officer who was suspected of having pertinent information regarding attacks on American soldiers in the area. Interrogators had learned that the detainee had information about a planned ambush.

When the interrogators were unable to extract the needed important information for some time, LTC West was asked to come try to obtain the important information. As the detainee continued to hold back the information, LTC West fired his pistol past the detainee's head into a clearing barrel, frightening (but not physically harming) the detainee and getting him to finally give the information. At least one man was apprehended as a result of the information obtained through the detainee's interrogation.

I’m very familiar with his background..and was contributing to his election campaign since I first heard him speak. He’s in my parents’ district.(Lucky stiffs) I was hoping I’d get a chance to stop at his office the last time I visited them but he was in Washington at the time. I cannot wait to shake his hand. Every time he speaks, he says something relevant, from the heart and resonates with me on both a ersonal and fundamental level. Give him time, he will be our President.

My wife made a good point. We should run West to simply destroy the "dey be rasis!" arguement from the DNCC, DNC, et. al. I told her West/Palin, Palin/West, West/Bachman would work for me.

While what your wife says may make perfect sense to us, you must remember that we’re dealing with libs. West will be called a “Uncle Tom” and they’ll say that because he’s not “from the hood” he’s not really “black”. Of course, Obama isn’t either but we now live in a world where if you say it, it’s true; even if the evidence to refute it is staring you in the face.

It is so simple and you can look it up...the Media does not want to tell the story just the sound bites!!!

He does not want to be part of Boehner’s dog and pony show to appease the TEA Party. He knew that the vote was nothing but show and not going anywhere. So you make a choice, do I go along to get along or do I make a stand. If I choose to go along to get along and vote on something that does not sit right with me and is BS, then I am part of the problem!!!

If we got lucky enough to save this country and West is called upon an emergency request to serve as POTUS candidate. The media will say he lacks experience but trust me they will look like fools.Then they will do background checks and check every record and where he buys his bed sheets (We wouldn’t BE IN THE MESS WE ARE in IF THEY HAD DONE THEIR JOBS AND DONE THIS TO OBAMA) and be ticked they find nothing.

I would pay to watch West debate anyone. He is beyond brilliant.He is charismatic with honor and character rarely seen nowadays.

For me it is the little things. Have you ever heard him hem and haw? No, ahh, ummm, ahhh, ummm. That drives me crazy...spit it out! Also he is so knowledgeable, he does not appear to need a staff to think for him. I have yet to see him dumbfounded. He is direct, calm and resolute. He does not try to blow smoke. I think he is fantastic, I wish we could clone him.

What you’re seeing in his “clarity” is that he has a firm understanding of what he believes, but there is one more aspect to that.

Most leftists firmly understand what they believe as well, and sincerely and vehemently hold to those beliefs.

But the difference is, leftists know that their beliefs are simply abhorrent to normal people, and they know that they cannot “speak from the heart”. This is why you see the obfuscation, the hemming and hawing, the obvious filtering of every utterance.

Because at the time ObamaCare as an entireity was DOA and he saw the GOP wasting time chipping away at every little issue when Obama is sitting by doing nothing but waging war against Israel waiting for the dollar to crash. West was more worried about these issues at that time.

Let’s hope ObamaCare is still DOA.Obama is a sneaky thug.

Is that supposed to mean something?

Congressman West had a chance to pull the lever against a hundred million taxpayer dollars for Obama school abortion recruitment clinics, and he chose not to. It wouldn’t have cost him anything, not even an extra second out of his day. And all he and his supporters have to defend him with is lame excuses.
