Allen West Fights Back, Leaves Democrats Confused And Hurt

House Democrats Rip GOP Rep. West Over Email to Party Chairwoman


There has been a lot of anxiety among Democratic House members over the last couple of days.

Congresswoman and DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz used her time at the podium to attack Congressman and fellow Floridian Allen West, after he had left the chamber.

"The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from south Florida."

Unhappy about this personal attack behind his back, West sent an e-mail to the Congresswoman and other House members calling her out on it.

Among other things, he was calling her "the most vile, unprofessional and despicable" member of the House.

This has left Democrats in Congress confused and hurt. They did not realize that a Republican was supposed to respond to attacks by a Democrat. This had never happened before and they don't like it, it made them feel uncomfortable.

They, of course, were careful about how they responded. They trotted out the Congressional Black Caucus to help them because he's, you know, black. They would not want to be seen publicly disagreeing with a black man, this could be viewed as racist.

They are so upset they are now asking for campaign funds to try to defeat him next year. I mean, we can't have these uppity Republicans talking back to Democrats. Next thing you know, they'll want to vote in elections.

I disagree with him on this part. He should have said "ONE of the most vile and despicable)...

There are many more just like her.

Maybe we need to raise campaign funds to defeat Wasserman-Schultz. What a sorry state of affairs when people like her represent us in DC.

LA, true but she does hod her own

Phil, she's the new DNC chair. That should make you feel better

Bd said...

So he criticizes her for attacking him when he was not present (which is a lie) and suggesting she should do so to his face---by sending her an email and attacking her personally? West is a paranoid loon.

I think West should've said everything he said in his email, but
on the floor while Wasserman-Schultz was in attendance. It's time more republicans stood up to the democrat sneak attacks.

Chuck said...

No Bd, Wasserman is a nasty little bitch who attacks everyone and then whines when she gets called on it.

You know, the usual liberal

Cube, does she really deserve that? She chose to wait until he left and then attacked him behind his back.

You know, the usual liberal

Good on Allen West, bout time people started sticking it back to the leftards. Somebody pass the whiner a tissue.

Chuck said...

MK, agreed
