Allen West: Negotiating with ‘Marxist’ President is ‘Silly’


by: dentonexable

(via The Blaze) Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) on Thursday called it “silly” for Republicans to negotiate with “Marxist, socialist, rigid ideologue” President Barack Obama.

Speaking on Mark Levin’s radio program, West said the GOP needs to stop its “circular firing squad” and focus on “unity based upon principles.”

“This whole thing about having having negotiations with President Obama is silly,” West said. “President Obama is Marxist, socialist, rigid ideologue and for whatever reason, he believes he has some self-conceived mandate to go out and further destroy and ruin our economy.”

House Republicans and the White House have been deadlocked over how to deal with the looming “fiscal cliff,” which will trigger automatic tax hikes and sharp spending cuts unless both sides can reach a budget agreement before the end of the year.

West, a Tea Party firebrand who lost his re-election bid last month, said that instead of wasting time negotiating with Obama, it’s up to House members to go out and “pass good policy,” then turn to the media and say, “ we’ve done our job now what are you going to do.”

    “it’s up to House members to go out and “pass good policy,” then turn to the media and say, “ we’ve done our job now what are you going to do.”

    I have communicated this same thing to Boehner & Cantor several times to no avail, I’m sure. The only thing we can be sure of is the Rebublican party, as it is now, has surely lost the will to stand up to basic Constitutional principals, & are going to to fold on this “fiscal cliff”. Not dealing with neo-comms is a no-brainer. Fighting with neo-comms is a no-brainer. Exposing neo-comms is a no-brainer. Sadly we have most of the Republicans in a fetal position holding their security blankets & sucking their thumbs.

    Dear Mr. West,
    I think it would be an outstanding move, for you get get together with DeMint.
    I will not harp about how you should have run for President , because who knows how nasty those damned progressives would have gotten!
    But I DO KNOW how your words and everything you are, gets to the heart and soul of everyone that cares about this country!
    You are now free to do what a political position could not!
