Yesterday Rep. Allen West said he grew up with his role model and that was his father. West was part of panel discussion sponsored by the Congressional Black Caucus. As we look at the black family the sad reality is too many families do not have a father in the home. What happened to the black family? It has to be more than a dependency on the government? West used the term of “reward” in reference to black mothers having children out of wedlock is it really that simple or is it more? Tell me what you think.

So Allen West is the great Emancipator. As a matter of fact he compares himself to Harriet Tubman. He is truly a legend in his own mind, but in spite of his exaggerated sense of self does he have a point? Tell me what you think.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz responded to Allen West in a very measured businesslike manner. She has come off like a grown up and he has come off looking rather childish. She pretty much said if you can’t stand the heat get out of the kitchen. West always came off as disciplined, but lately he has been coming off the rails. He also recently said “I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.” So West is really trying to play to his base, and to do that he will say anything.
Freshman Congressman Allen West was the keynote speaker at CPAC and he said in reference to the conservative movement that they have survived “hostile attacks from the liberal left, such as being called racist. Perhaps they should see who is standing up here as your keynote speaker.” So does the presence of as black man speaking to this group mean they are not racist? Tell me what you think.
