Sarah Palin Wants GOP Candidates to Pick Allen West as VP
Matt | On 04, Apr 2012
Rep. Allen West (R-FL) is once again in the spotlight because of his buddy Sarah Palin.
The former vice presidential candidate said on FOX News on Tuesday that she would support one of the current candidates choosing West as their second-in-charge.
I applaud Palin for reaching into the kiddie pool of diversity in her party and “building a case” for Allen West. However, the man comes off (to me) as a bit crazy … much like she does!
Never mind just during the past two years West has called Obama supporters “a threat to the gene pool.” He also smoked Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) in a round of Congressional emails, saying she didn’t deserve respect from him because she is “not a Lady.”
Palin still thinks West is ready to be a heartbeat away from the presidency.
Here is what the former Alaska governor about picking a VP like West:
“And when I talk about going rogue, what I want to do is encourage the GOP nominee to not think that they have to go with somebody necessarily safe that conventional wisdom perhaps would lead somebody to believe that, if it’s somebody, quote-unquote, safe, that they’re not going to get beat up by the media, because no matter who it is … they’re going to get clobbered.
The media will make things up about them and their record and their reputations and their families. So no matter who it is, so they might as well get someone who is passionate and strong, as I say, like about Allen West, understands the Constitution and wants to put government back on the side of the people.” [SOURCE]
Palin actually supported West’s campaign when he ran for Congress in 2010, so I’m sure she believes this stuff.
Sarah Palin is building a brand of politics on being a self-described “outsider” whose fringe thinking is the best thing going for this country. It’s easy to see now why a guy like West is her speed.
The reality is that making her “rogue” thinking is really a mask, a defense mechanism of sorts, to keep from talking about her true lack of experience. I see right through her tactics.
Allen West may be her personal favorite, but I could not see him representing the plurality of this country on a world’s stage. You can’t hide crazy!
