Like West, I'm a Republican and a former Army officer.

But frankly, I'm glad West lost. He's nuts- an extremist warmonger who is dangerous to America.

How did Allen West's voting record actually affect the groups the lefties claim West was against like it his mission. Could it be West simply didn't verbalize praise for them? Some having trouble with their Muchhausen Syndrome? Not getting enough attention? Friends of Murphy splashing social media with their agenda?

Looks like a basic conservative voting pattern to me.
LMAO

He was elected to the JUST SAY NO tea party. His voting pattern was predictable.

His voting record? OK let's look.

How many jobs did he help create? How many wars did he end?

How much National Debt did he reduce?

To be honest was there anything he accomplished for the two years he was living off the public teat, other than getting a great government pension to add to the one he got when he voluntarily left the military because of the mistakes he made there??

It seems weird that Republicans would demand a full recount in Florida.
Not when you consider the number of sure winners they had that LOST!

I don't have the stats for the State but from what I saw locally a lot of republican incumbents lost.

I think if Gov. Scott had be up for re-election Florida might have flushed him away along with Allen.

Florida has a "disease" which I call "Democrat ,Hispanic and Black under 50 years old ,state election voter apathy" and that is why Rick Scott , Marco Rubio and Pam Bondi got elected.

I do not know a single under 50 "transplant" from another state who ignored the last state election while I d not know a single non transplant under 50 who bothered voting.

"Gov.Scott is a one time governor
he may not even make it till next election there reopening the HCA fraud case along with a bunch of other charges while under his watch as their CEO"

As you know his company, while under his watch was found guilty of medicare fraud and paid the highest medicare fraud fine in USA history.
He got away with only a fine and escaped jail time which I suspect endeared him to many of the older right wing Miami Cubans because they sure as hell voted for him in massive numbers.

# For those who do not know the "inside joke" , Cuban owned Miami-dade is rampant in medicare fraud .

"Government corruption, mismanagement, police misconduct, election fraud, theft and ethics violations seem to be standard operating procedure in city hall. Add Medicare fraud disproportionately committed by Cubans, these and other crimes cost American taxpayers billions"

I have told the truth and if that makes me a "bigot" than I wear it with pride.

The voting rate for the under 50 ,Democrat Hispanic and Black community in Florida during a state election is a disgrace .

Idiot PC dems do more damage than good for the party.

It is unusual for a retired officer such as West to be such a warmonger, most seem to be more like Powell.

Warmongers usually come out of the ranks of the Rush Limbaugh's and Glenn Beck's of the world.
