Republican Allen West takes aim at Obama

Always outspoken and opinionated, Florida Congressman Allan West has made a recent stir on blogs and in the news after comments made against the Democrats on Saturday.

“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table,” West said Saturday at a Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach, according to News One. “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.”

Allen West’s comment immediately received retaliation from the Democratic Party, with former Reid spokesman Jim Manley having some choice words for West in his own Twitter feed.
