Allen West vs. Lawrence O'Donnell: No contest

Lawrence O’Donnell of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” tried and tried and tried some more to get Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) to apologize and retract his statements that Obama should be willing to go to the location of the troops and put himself in harm’s way when visiting Afghanistan.

Lawrence may not have gotten the memo that West is a real American hero with conviction; and doesn’t easily back down to the leftwing press. Leftists posing as journalists also are not too happy about West’s comment that Obama is “probably the dumbest person walking around in America.”

Here is a link to the video clip of West on O’Donnell’s show.

West’s comments on Obama’s “dumbness” might actually be construed as a compliment. For the choices are: (1) Obama really is the smartest guy in the room but because of the mess G.W. Bush left him even his brilliance cannot reverse the country’s decline. (2) Obama is intentionally weakening the economy and America’s position in the world (perhaps naively believing socialism is good for the world?). (3) Obama is just another SEIU / ACORN type organizer who looks and sounds presidential but unfortunately is completely out of his league.

Given the choices, West may be giving Obama the benefit of the doubt. The “it’s Bush’s fault” narrative is getting a little old. And if Obama is not trying to bring about a neo-Marxist revolution, only one choice remains.
