Huffington Post -- Speaking to a Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach for the Palm Beach County GOP, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla) fired off a humdinger of a line that within minutes drew recriminations from Democrats on Twitter.
"We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, (audience boos) 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.
"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."
Blog author's comments - Compared to what the liberals say about the GOP, this is pretty tame stuff. And the thanks he gets from the Republican elitists is to have his district redrawn to make it harder to win reelection.
A Republican Florida Representative confirmed that redistricting will leave Allen West's Congressional seat vulnerable. I must assume he is too conservative for many members of the GOP both in Florida and in Washington.
