GOP attempting to end Congressman Allen West’s career


We are close to coming to the end of the Grand Old Party. Last night on Mark Levin, as well as Soledad O’Brien on CNN, interviews were held with Conservative favorite and rising star Allen West.

West:

“Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.”

Mark Levin’s interview regarding redistricting with West last night 

 

They are attempting to re-district him into oblivion as well as others who show promise. They are doing all they can to diminish him, as well as the other “up start” Tea Party folks. Florida is adding two house seats due to redistricting. There is simply no reason to put him in a District that is made up of  a majority of Democrats. How soon they forget what brought them to victory such a short time ago. Rest in Peace GOP, Rest in Peace if you continue this charade. P.S. “In the tank for Romney”,Matt Drudge has nothing on this, yet rales against Gingrich. Here we go:

UPDATE: Silver Fiddle sent this link from a Florida site that sheds more light on this than my post:  http://shark-tank.net/2012/01/10/24080/

We’re seeing how the RINOs want to take their Party back. Romney operatives, with the help of McCain and Dole, are trying to redistrict Allen West out of his seat.

[U]nder a redistricting plan put forth by the GOP-controlled Florida legislature, West could have a hard time winning a second term — a situation that has some conservatives suggesting a conspiracy by establishment Republicans, including GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. . . . Some are pointing out that House Redistricting Chairman Will Weatherford has been a Romney surrogate and suggesting the former Massachusetts governor wants to be rid of West — and, by extension, the Tea Party.

Romney knows that if he’s elected West will be a thorn in his side. Better a Democrat than a Republican who speaks his mind.

Ohio Republicans are rewriting the rules in an attempt to exclude TEA Party members from being members of the State Central Committee. Establishment Republicans want Tea Party members out of office so they can spend our confiscated tax dollars their way.

Republicans haven’t been that concerned about spending limits, deficits, and long-term liabilities. In fact, they have used the looseness of the rules to pay their political benefactors with payouts to keep them in power. The Democrats are honest about their payouts; Republicans have learned to lie well.

Update: Sean Trende, the senior elections analyst at RealClearPolitics and author of “The Lost Majority,” e-mails to say that Florida’s redistricting law has tied the GOP’s hands on this. They have very little leeway on how they draw the new lines. Quote:

I can’t speak to the FL legislature’s motives, but it is nearly impossible to craft an R-leaning, non-Cuban district in SE FL under the current laws and comply with the Fair Districts Act. West’s current district runs up and down the Gold Coast, stretching inland in arms to gobble up Republican-leaning areas. It’s pretty thorough, and even then it is a swing district. Under Fair Districts, the Republican legislature can’t do that anymore. In fact, it is arguably stretching what it can do under the current iteration of West’s district. . .

    Romney is a pathetic liberal Taxachussets politician.

    Allen West is the real deal. And the GOP wants him out?

    Romney looks like a choir boy. He isn’t when it comes to political maneuvering. He plays dirty — Machiavellian, even.

    The knowledge that those who are redistricting wouldn’t have spoken to West about it shows clearly that he’s not admired or wanted by the GOP. Man, this is NUTS; Romney’s all we’ve really got and HE doesn’t admire and honor a guy like WEST? I keep hoping Romney’s going to go more Right if he’s elected, but this makes that sound like a pipe dream. This is REALLY troubling.

    This is a perfect example of why we need to form a conservative party. The GOP has been in decline since Reagan left office.

    It’s all hands on deck. I can’t see how getting rid of West-or any Republican can benefit the party. They must realize the alternative.

    This is just proof that the establishment Republicans really do not want change, what they really want is power and they see the Tea Party as a threat to their prospects. Disgusting!

    I hope Santorum picks up steam again. Then, I won’t have to hold my nose when voting for our candidate. The RINOS don’t want to rock the boat. They are apart of the good ole’ boys network and the Tea Party isn’t having any of that. The RINO’s don’t want any part of the types of reforms the Tea Party is trying to make in Washington. Rep. West tells it like it is and the RINO’s can’t stand that.

      I hope he is still standing by the time the primary gets to my state. At least we have a closed primary as opposed to the caucus process, and open voting. How did we get to this??

    Here’s a link from a Florida political blogger. I don’t know much about the insider stuff, but it appears this guy does. Politics is a dirty business. Always has been, always will be:

    I think the prospect of Romney’s nefarious hand is a little overblown. These are state matters, and usually more parochial issues are what drive stuff like this. Redistricting is fought over tooth and nail, and an outsider presidential candidate who barely has a 50-50 chance of being president is not going to swing that much weight. Somebody wants to carve out a district for a nephew, or trade it for a political favor, or something like that. There is a lot of “go along to get along” in state politics, and a state politician is not going to expend political capital to satisfy a weak national candidate.

    Sounds to me like Rep West refused to kiss the right asses and they are making him pay for it.

    I don’t like Romney, but Newt is no alternative. We’re stuck again with a hold your nose and vote candidate regardless of who gets the nod…

      I agree with you, although my distaste is growing more towards Romney, no doubt because of the Obamacare issue. It is the one issue that will cost American lives. That I am sure. There is no doubt that rationing will occur. For that reason, and the dishonest ads against Ginrgrich about does it for me. Not that Gingrich is any Saint.
