Rep. Allen West (R-FL) continued his strong opposition towards the Democratic Party Saturday night, offering a line to his colleagues that certainly doesn’t strive for bipartisanship.
At the Palm Beach County GOP’s Lincoln Day Dinner, West voiced his stern displeasure at several top Democrats and vowed his state would not turn blue for the November elections.
“We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee (Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz), we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table,” he 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.”
Former Reid spokesperson Jim Manley offered a fierce rebuke after getting word on West’s comments, writing on his Twitter page, “Me to allen west. You first asshole.”
