With all due respect, there are better choices out there. One in particular checks virtually all the boxes and should, and very likely will, be Mitt's running mate ...

I took a look at your web site. I don't know anything about Governor McDonnell, but he certainly sounds like the real deal and would be a great pick. Of course, I love West too.

The reason I would like to see West as VP is to give Black Americans a chance to see what a REAL leader looks like. Obama promised to heal the race divide, and he only poured acid in the wound. Allen West would be a real healer for those who wanted healing. He also has a solid knowledge of history where foreign affairs are concerned. A good grasp of history is vastly underrated and sorely needed.

My representative is Phil Gingrey of Georgia. I think he is a true conservative and patriot. That makes about 10 of them in Congress. He was mulling entering the last gubernatorial race. I sent him a plea to remain where he was because he was so sorely needed in Congress which is infiltrated, as Allen says, with many wealth redistribution inclined, (that is political talk for Marxists), people. To my surprise, I got a personal phone call and he thanked me and stayed in Congress.
In Allen's case, to me , it is reversed. He needs to get in a position of power to change the game as it is played today in DC. His outspoken honesty and patriotism will make a big difference at the top.

I second Shubi's thought that West is also one of , if not the best to step in if anything should happen to Romney. I want a President that will put himself on the line to protect America as West has already done.

With all due respect, there is no better choice. In fact, Allen West is the best qualified to be President. It is unfortunate the GOP is so leftist.

GOP Florida Rep. Allen West served his country in Afghanistan, but now he’s battling on very different front lines: Congress.


From Townhall Magazine's June feature, "Allen West: The New Face of American Black Leadership," by Katie Pavlich:

“I’m living the American dream,” GOP Florida Rep. Allen West tells Townhall as he sits in his congressional office in Washington, D.C.

Now a freshman congressman, West grew up in the inner city of Atlanta in a healthy, old-school style, twoparent...
