    Was Alan West channeling Republican candidate for POTUS Herman Cain's "I don't have facts to back this up, but..." when he "claimed up to 80 House Democrats were Communists'.






    Allen West Refuses To Name 'Communist' Democratic Representatives



    Ariel Edwards-Levy
    Posted: 04/19/12


    Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.), who claimed up to 80 House Democrats were Communists, refused to name any of them when asked Thursday on CNN.

    Asked by CNN's Soledad O'Brien to name specific representatives, West instead said, "Communist, progressive, Marxist, statest… I’m looking at the ideologies, I’m looking at the things they believe in and if you don’t think that we have to stand upon truth and be able to identify and clearly contrast the different principles and values and ideologies … here in this country then we’re never going to get to the fact of accepting the true debate that is happening in America."
    West has a history of controversial comments, which have included comparing himself to Harriet Tubman and saying Nazi propagandist Joseph Goebbels would be proud of the Democratic party.

    So what... obama said he wouldn't have any lobbyists in his administration, and now he has all kinds of them, not to mention Van Jones who IS a card carrying communist.

    "Controversial statements" to the liberal/leftist media is anything they don't like, which consist mainly of the truth exposing their liberal/leftist/socialist/commie agenda.

    Not that it matters a wit -- here in America we're free to exercise the politics of our choice, but...


    Alan West stumbled and mumbled when asked to back up his Bullpucky, can you back up your Bullpucky
    or-----or are you having a Herman ("I don't have facts to back this up, but...") Cain moment?

    West will say or endorse anyone if it will result in a camera pointed at him.

    West doesn't have to name anyone. Look up who is a member of the progressive caucus and you will know exactly who they are.

    LOL - Republicans on this M/B are able to man-up about their accusations, in the same manner their rightwing hero and Romney endorser, Ted Nugent was able to face his draft board.
