IMHO, West is likely imperative as the VP running mate to Romney; Because not only does he represent conservatives; West will negate the race card sure to be tossed at Mitt by Obama's media. And his presence might stir the Republican Party to unite. Because with just Mitt Romney on the ballot as candidate for president; we're going to disintegrate as a major party. Anybody else for VP is no help. They'll call Mitt Roadkill Romney, when Obama gets finished with him.

 

Can someone please explain to me why the Republican party of Florida allowed Congressman Allen West to be gerrymandered out of his congressional district?

West is the most prominent and best-spoken elected conservative in the United States. He’s a motorcycle-riding war hero, a passionate Christian, and a patriot. He’s the first black Republican Congressman from Florida since Reconstruction, and he is as strong a vice presidential candidate as anyone. Now he might not even have his seat in Congress next year. Why do we want to take one of our best players out of the game?

It would make sense if this were Massachusetts or California: if a Democrat-majority state...
