If Marco Runs For Prez in 2016, FL. Senate Seat Goes Democratic

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Allen West

Boy, can it get much better than this? Former Rep. Allen West (R-FL) has announced that he will seek a U.S. Senate seat if, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) decides to run for president in 2016.

Can you imagine all the fun to be had there. First, there's Rubio who's a joke -- even the tea party is initiating a bill allowing for recalls in the state of Florida for it's Senators -- targeting Rubio because he supported legalization of immigrants in his gang of eight immigration bill. Senator R is such an easy target. It doesn't get much easier unless...

...You're talking about Allen West, former Florida tea-party congressman. He's a joke on a joke. If he seeks the junior senator's seat (because Rubio is POTUS hunting) that will just about guarantee the tea party will anoint him as their republican candidate. And with him as the GOP candidate, the Democrats could put up a picture of a cow and do better than West will do.

Think of this one -- Rubio, coveting the Tea party votes in the primary, will have to endorse and support West who's basically indefensible unless you're under heavy meds. Even then, it would be hard to take him seriously after his brush with the 111th congress.

I know, I'm just making fun of him because he's said a few outrageous things during his short-lived political career. In case you forgot or never heard these before, THINK PROGRESS has put together a compilation entitled, Rep. Allen West's 15 Most Outrageous Statements. Here's a sampling of Allen's Tea-Party thinking:

RELIGIOUS COEXISTENCE “WOULD GIVE AWAY OUR COUNTRY”

“WE ALSO SHOULD BE CENSORING THE AMERICAN NEWS AGENCIES”

 “WE ARE NOT GOING TO HAVE OUR MEN BECOME SUBSERVIENT”

"I AM “THE MODERN-DAY HARRIET TUBMAN”

“I MUST CONFESS, WHEN I SEE ANYONE WITH AN OBAMA BUMPER STICKER, I RECOGNIZE THEM AS A THREAT TO THE GENE POOL.

If you ever wondered Who put the bop in the bop shoo bop shoo bop? or Who put the Rube in the Marco Rubio, look no farther. It's everybody's favorite circus clown.

delusions

Obviously delusions of grandeur dance in his hollow head. But now I have a good reason to hope that Marco Rubio runs for president. The domino theory will give us Allen West running in Florida and some fine Democrat from the Sunshine State will end up  with that seat in an easy, breezy election. Florida does like conservatives, but they also know a horses ass when they sniff one long enough. They voted him out in 2012. Mr. West you've overstayed your visit to the rodeo.

LATE BREAKING:

From BUZZFEED POLITICS (9-26-13):

Former Congressman Allen West is leaving his job at Pajamas Media after an altercation with a female staffer in which he allegedly called her a “Jewish American princess,” BuzzFeed learned on Thursday.

Reached by phone, West told BuzzFeed he was leaving his job voluntarily, though one source familiar with the situation told BuzzFeed he had been fired. He did not deny that an exchange with the employee had occurred, but said it hadn’t led to his leaving the company.

“No, I didn’t get fired,” West said. “I’m leaving to pursue political aspirations.

So, Marco Rubio, do the country a favor and run. Then we get West to bounce around once more, and add to the majority in the U. S. Senate.
