He was put in by the Tea Party and then turned his back on them and voted for the Patriot Act, FISA NDAA, the raising of the debt ceiling. What did he expect would happen. He lost his base of voters. He deserved what he got. Simple as that.

Not so much he lost his base as the party establishment changed his base. The new district was less competitive with more Democrats. They had it in for him in Tallahassee and DC. Those spineless leaders of the GOP can't stand someone who speaks truth to power, like the whole darn Progressive Caucus is just a bunch of dang commies.

I support FISA and NDAA and the Patriot Act

All the TEA PARTY rallies I attended were about cutting Gov waste and keeping taxes low.

Keeping us safe from foreign threats is not waste.

Ok I dont support Bush "No child left behind" and his medicare policy was not great but on defense I supported him 100% (ok his Harriet Myers nomination was a bit off the mark).

I am a paid Donor to the Bush Library and I get compliments all the time for the Bush "miss me yet" bumper sticker on my paid for 2007Cadillac.

After a long two week recount battle, Col. Allen West has conceded to Democratic opponent Patrick Murphy in the race for Florida's 18th congressional district. West issued a statement early this morning on his Facebook page about his decision, strongly emphasizing his campaign's efforts to preserve a fair and clean democratic process.

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...
