I don’t like any of the people involved in this little cat fight, but it is interesting. There is a part of me that agrees with the President about our children looking up to people like Kim and Kanye, they are no role models. Where I disagree is that the size of their home has anything to do with why they are not good role models.

“I made that song because I am a god. I don’t think there’s much more explanation,”
“Like, this is my baby. This isn’t America’s baby,”
May I suggest that you should have thought of that before having a child with someone who lives her life in front of a camera and is famous only because of a sex tape.
For two weeks since Election Day, we have been working to ensure every vote is counted accurately and fairly. We have made progress towards that goal, thanks to the dedication of our supporters and their unrelenting efforts to protect the integrity of the democratic process. While many questions remain unanswered, today I am announcing that I will take no further action to contest the outcome of this election.
While there are certainly still inaccuracies in the results, and the actions of the St. Lucie County and Palm Beach County Supervisors of Elections rightly raise questions in my mind and for many voters, after much analysis and this past weekend’s recount in St. Lucie County, our legal team does not believe there are enough over-counted, undercounted or fraudulent votes to change the outcome of the election.
While a contest of the election results might have changed the vote totals, we do not have evidence that the outcome would change. Given the extremely high evidentiary hurdles involved in a successful challenge, I will not ask my generous supporters to help fund a drawn-out, expensive legal effort with little chance of success. Therefore, we will not contest the certification or challenge the seating of Congressman-elect Murphy.
Serving the people in the House of Representatives has been among the highest honors of my life, but this seat does not belong to me, or for that matter, to any individual. It belongs to the people.
I want to congratulate my opponent, Patrick Murphy, as the new Congressman from the 18th Congressional District. I pray he will serve his constituents with honor and integrity, and put the interests of our nation before his own.
I must thank my wife Angela, and my daughters Aubrey and Austen for their support, patience, understanding and most of all, love. These are three of the toughest women I know. They have sent me off to defend our nation overseas at war, and to Capitol Hill to serve our nation in the House of Representatives. They have all handled the challenges of these last few months, and the last many years, with amazing grace. I know they will be by my side for whatever is our next chapter.
I want to thank my congressional and campaign staff for their service, and most importantly, I want to thank all of our tremendous supporters who provided their time and money to power our campaign. I am humbled by the dedication and perseverance of our supporters, and their commitment to a free and prosperous America. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for our campaign, but most importantly, what they have done, and will continue to do for our country. None of us should let the outcome discourage us. We should only redouble our resolve.
Above all, I want to thank God for his blessings, and for blessing me with the opportunity to serve.
Only God knows what is in store for each of us. I have dedicated my life to serving this nation, and the results of this election will not change my purpose. Just as I did in the deserts of Iraq and Afghanistan, just as I did on Capitol Hill, I will continue to fight for our Republic.
Our nation will not overcome our challenges overnight, and the road ahead for each one of us will not be easy. But this nation would never have become that shining beacon of light if our founders had chosen the easy path 236 years ago. We all must proudly continue their legacy.
For the protection and preservation of our life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, I shall remain steadfast and loyal. God bless you and God bless these United States of America
For those that are sticking with the falsehood that their 900 votes cast in a precinct that has only 7 registered voters. It simply isn’t true. You can look for yourself, it is precinct 93, there were 6 votes cast 3 for West, 3 for Murphy. There is nothing about these numbers that are glaring errors that would cause a court to require a complete recount. Believing internet rumors without doing your own fact checking is never a good idea. This is also the county that the rumors are that there was 141% of the vote. That number is cards cast, not ballots. The ballot was 2 pages long due to 11 amendments that were put on the ballot. The number should have really been 200%, but apparently not everyone answered every ballot question.
Congressman West did the right thing, a long drawn out court battle that would have no chance of changing the outcome isn’t good for anyone. He did what he could to talk about the counting problems in this county. But this county has close to 30,000 more registered democrats than republicans, that is a very large hill to climb. Congressman West is great to stir up the base, but when you are a bomb thrower; as Congressman West is, you had better be in a very safe district, or the chances are you will only serve one term, if you get elected at all.
“I will be your representative in Washington … not Washington’s representative here.” Tell Alllen West: “Go back to Plantation, not Washington.”
George Kleine, quoting Sheriff Bob Crowder on Congressman Allen West.
Sheriff Crowder is challenging Congressman West for the republican nomination.
I am sure the people of the district are really pleased with this imagery.

I keep getting hits about this “statement”
In light of this month being Black History Month, I feel no way involved with this negro celebration of half accomplishments and borderline Communist agendas. View the list of these “fearless” leaders of black America. Black inhabitants of America knew their place at the table, and knew they could not eat off the same plate of the more than welcoming white men and women of the time. These men, I use that term lightly, like Malcolm X pushed themselves into the homes of innocent white Americans. This action riled up the negro, and scared the living hell out of people. I am no way apart of this community of transported Africans, I myself am an American. I’m a good ol’ boy from the great state of Florida, and a citizen of this great nation. I know God recognizes me as my true self, a proud, strong white man given dark pigmentation. God had to give the blacks at least one intelligent person, so he chose to give me dark skin. I curse my birth as a black man every day. I’m black by birth, not by choice. It will all be sorted out when my name is called, and I step in front of the great white Jesus himself.
Sorry all you race baiters, Allen West never said this. This is originally posted on satirical site. The left ran with the quote even though the site is clearly a satire and is labeled as such. Just one more way to smear a conservative of color. The link to the original posting is below.
First, I take no pleasure whatsoever saying this. Romney will be the GOP nominee. Santorum has run out of field. There are not enough truly conservative states left to get him to the nomination. Of course he will keep going in the hopes of a contested convention, but in their hearts of hearts they know it is not in the cards.
Therefore, it is time. VP Stakes:
There are plenty to choose from.
Herman Cain: I don’t see it. The issues that came up about the affair would scare off any candidate in my mind. Why deal with that distraction when you don’t have to? I give this almost no chance.
Paul Ryan: A great choice, but very young. He also has very young children who he doesn’t want to put into the spotlight at their tender ages. Which just makes me love him all the more. Also, very remote chance of this happening.
Chris Christie: This is a non-starter as far as I am concerned. I like many things about Christie, but he adds nothing to the ticket. He won’t bring NJ over to the GOP. He is just as moderate as Romney is in most respects. So I give this almost no chance.
Michele Bachman: She will excite the base, but let’s be honest; she is a loose cannon. Romney won’t take the chance of her blowing his last chance at being president.
Marco Rubio: He is dynamic and from a swing state. He had a great deal of tea party support. Notice I said had. There are many in the Tea Party who have lost confidence in him. He has some issues with a brother-in-law who has had some drug dealing issues. Of course that has nothing to do with him, he didn’t marry the guy, but the media will have some fun with that. He also has said that he has zero intention of taking it even if offered. Of course much easier to say no to a reporter than to the nominee. He is also young. He may feel he isn’t ready yet. I would give this a 50/50 chance.
Allen West: West has been favorable towards Newt, although he never came out and endorsed him. West has the entire package that the conservative base is looking for. He will make an excellent attack dog on the stump. He will pull no punches with Obama, which will allow Romney to stay above the fray and concentrate on comparing and contrasting policies with the Obama administration. West had some issues in Iraq that will come up again. He sometimes doesn’t always filter what he is saying. He also just moved in order to run for congress again. I would give this maybe a 40% chance.
Sarah Palin: Heaven knows she has been vetted. But she is also very polarizing. I also don’t think she would accept. Why be the small dog again when she had the chance to run for the big seat and decided to bow out? I give this less than a 20% chance.
Rand Paul: I like Rand. A lot as a matter of fact. He also is another that will take on Obama without fear. His down side is that it will add fuel to the fire to the people who accused Romney and Ron Paul of working together and Rand getting the VP seat as the payoff. It will alienate the people who believe this. But, it may bring in Ron Paul fans. Not likely, but some may be willing to vote for him. I would say this is about a 30% chance.
I don’t see him taking any of the candidates he went up against. The blood between Newt and him is way to bad for it to be repaired. It looks like it is starting to get that way with Rick now as well. I would give this the least likely of the scenarios.
My pick is Gov. Bob McDonnell of Virginia. He is currently the head of the RGA. Has a rising profile nationally. He has spoken at the Reagan library recently and was received well. His administration has been very successful. He has increased revenues without raising taxes, VA’s ratings has increased under his administration, he has kept most of his promises when he was elected, (one more year to fulfill the balance). He is also a very good campaigner. He is a staunch conservative, which Romney needs to excite the base. Virginia is a swing state, and right now is trending to Obama by 8 points with Romney as the nominee. (Which Romney was the best of the remaining candidates).
Herman Cain is resonating and creating a stir across the United States. Mr. Cain doesn’t fit the typical mode of a black conservative since he has lived his life in the black community. At least this is part of the argument that some have used. I suppose to the liberal mind being married to a black women and being conservative is an unusual occurrence. Mr. Cain also was born and raised in the south during the times of Jim Crowe. He has seen racism. He was turned away from the college of his choice due strictly to race.
The black liberal talking heads are ready to explode due one statement made by Cain recently,
“believe there is racism in this country today that holds anybody back in a big way.”
The response to this has been quick. Race baiter Cornell West believes that he is trivializing a serious issue. Now, Mr. Cain is not saying that racism doesn’t exist. He is saying that over the course of his lifetime the chances of being held back strictly based on race is much less now than at the time of his youth. Cornell West lives his life inside the bubble of “I am black, therefore I am victim”. His entire world view is based on his color and race relations. The simple act of going to grocery store has racial implications to him. Mr. Cain on the other hand lives his life like he is a human being who happens to be black. He knows what true racism is, as he has seen it. But, he has also seen his parents achieve the level of success that they were looking to reach. Owning a home and having the money to send their children to college was the dream that they worked towards. Today, this man’s son is a potential nominee to run for the President of the United States. I would say that we have come a long way baby. I am sure that Cain’s parents didn’t dream this scenario.
Juan Williams has gotten into the conversation as well:
“Right on, brother. And I’ll tell you why I say ‘right on.’ Because West, Tavis Smiley, those guys are threatened by the success of Herman Cain. And I think that they feel that anybody who doesn’t buy into all the racism charges that they’re constantly- You know, in their world, President Obama doesn’t exist. You know, these are the same people who criticize Obama for not being sufficient. So imagine the way they feel.”
Think of Al Sharpton, who makes his living playing the victim, if we become a more colorblind society how does Sharpton continue his ways? People like West, Smiley, Sharpton, Jackson, and others will have to find a new thing to complain about and find other ways to hustle people for money. These are the same people who seem to ignore that our country has elected a person of color to the highest office in the land. We weren’t racist on that day, but every day before and since.
Herman Cain is redefining what being black in America is all about. He is reaching out and Middle America is seeing for themselves that the illusion the GOP is full of racists was just that, an illusion. They are terrified that people who fill their coffers are no longer to going to quite so willing to go along if the true story comes out.
The true story is that most people in this country have gotten past skin color and have moved on. We are interested in living our own lives and could care less if the person who moves in next door has more pigment in their skin than they do. We are more interested in actually fixing the problems in our country than continually pointing the finger at who is blame for it.
Herman Cain is not trivializing race relations in this country, he is redefining them. That is all too scary of a proposition to the hustlers who make a very good living off liberal white guilt.
