  • In The Green Room: Rep. Allen West (R-FL) on Keeping America Strong

    As a former service member, Congressman Allen West (R-FL) brings a valuable perspective to his work on the House Armed Service Committee. That knowledge and passion was on display during his speech yesterday at The Heritage Foundation on the importance of having clear foreign policy objectives and a military prepared to tackle any challenge.

    West’s speech marked the conclusion of Heritage’s 2011 Protect America Month, designed to “showcase why we must commit to protecting America in an increasingly dangerous world.” After his speech, he sat down for a short “In the Green Room” interview to answer some questions from Heritage.

      Allen West sees the big picture and makes no bones about "telling it like it is". He is no way concerned about being politically correct, but rather concerned about "saving and restoring" this Country. He has genuine concern and good, honest motives. He's not full of "hot air" or trying to "blow smoke up anybody's B—" as he put it to one journalist who was trying to trip him up in a town hall meeting. We need to get this man up and running…..and quickly!
