Atlas readers know I have long supported Allen West in his run for Congress. I love him.His column, Colonel from Kandahar was one of my most popular features when he was stationed in Afghanistan. He embodies the great American. This is the leadership we need NOW. If it were up to me he'd be on the short list for VP.
If you want to get involved, support this man. ALLEN WEST FOR CONGRESS!
West Answers Obama: Run as a Man and Leader Clarice Feldman
In response to Obama's claim that Republicans will use race to stoke fear, Lt. Col Allen West, candidate for Congress in Florida's 22 District issued this release:
My advice to Senator Obama is to run as a Man and Leader, and the American people will evaluate you as such, not as a victim. This is a Presidential race, based solely on a capacity to lead the United States of America. It is not about skin tone...however, perhaps we should come to expect these immature statements.
It also seems rather humorous that the Presidential candidate who was supposed to be such a "uniter" and transcend race is the one talking about it the most. If Senator Obama was confident in his abilities and character, he would not need to create a crutch for failure. Senator Obama has just tipped his hand, any criticism of him and his policies will be directly attributed to racism. I congratulate Senator Obama for taking race relations in America back some 30 years.
