Gunning For Allen West

12 January 2012 @ 11:15

The GOP Establishment in Florida is apparently quite willing to see Allen West defeated, going so far as to work with Democrats in making it much easier.

From Javier Manjarres, over at The Shark Tank, we learn [tip of the fedora to Doug Ross]:

…And while Republican congressional incumbents will have to concede district-wide favorability to Democrats, Congressman Allen West’s 22nd congressional district may very be drawn to include substantially more Democrats within it-potentially far many more than other Republican incumbents.

Further…

So why would the “most conservative legislature” in Florida’s history look the other way as West’s congressional district lines are re-drawn? Is the fix really in to knock Allen West out of Congress? About five months ago, a very high ranking member of the Florida legislature gave me a very disturbing prediction regarding redistricting- “Allen West is screwed.” Take note that comment was made five months ago, long before the proposed maps were made public.

So are the poobahs in the Florida legislature really gunning to oust Allen West? Was a backroom deal made with the Democrat members of the legislature to put West’s seat into play in order to protect the other congressional seats that would favor any future runs for Congress by existing members of the Florida Legislature? The deals were struck, and the maps drawn behind closed doors.

It wouldn’t surprise us if this were the case. There is no love lost between the Florida legislature and Congressman Allen West, who has proven to be the anti-Republican establishment congressman….

So…it would seem that the attitude of the Republican Establishment in Florida is: screw helping the Party maintain control of the House; we’ve got to destroy this guy because he won’t play ball with us and go along to get along.

This is merely one example of a nation-wide problem with the Republican Party.

Well…fine. I am more committed than ever now to OPERATION WHIG after the November Elections.

GOP Delenda Est!

    GOP Delenda Est indeed. As long as there is one moderate republican running for the presidential nomination the conservative’s votes count for nothing. It’s really not surprising that the republican’s conservative bench is so shallow.

      He flip-flopped last summer on shutting down the government, voting to keep it going. He is an establishment candidate and part of the problem. Ron Paul is actually running and WILL affect postive, CONSTITUTIONAL change, yet you ignore him. I guess it’s more important to whack-a-mole Islam and bomb Iran than to implement the Constitution,

    We need people like West desperately. He reminds me of Palin. He says what needs to be said and what we on the right want to hear.

      Exactly. Even when I don’t agree with him I have no doubt he’s sincere.

    Allen West for President and Thomas Sowell for Secretary of State.
    Not that I have a vote in the matter. But it gives one pause to think, no?

      Exactly, sir. Now that the Cain Train crashed and burned, it’s time for the Republitards to step-and-fetch-it and find themselves another saviour of color. Republicans will NEVER understand that by playing these games they only look foolish and weak. For God’s sake and the sake of your children man, STOP THE GROVELING! Ron Paul is running now, yet you ignore him. Both the right and the left ignore him–that tells me he’s NOT part of the establishment. He does espouse radical ideas that are out of bounds in todays Amerika–you know, like Constitutional government, state’s rights, and sane foreign policy. There is no difference between Mittens, Sanitorium, or Obama. They are different sides of the same damn coin. Same as Bush I and II and Clinton.
