Congressman Allen West (R-FL) appeared at a campaign event last night with Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle (R-NY24). He delivered one heck of a speech, and the two hundred people in attendance were left wanting more. The line to meet up with Col. West was long and it must have taken at least an hour for him to meet and greet everyone, but he stuck around and had a big smile on his face the entire evening, along with Rep. Buerkle, who is always available to her constituents.
West talked about the “challenge we face today” and the choice between “two very distinct futures.” He said that is why “Ann Marie is standing here,” because “she has some serious skin in the game” with her thirteenth grandchild (Yes, 13! ) ready to enter this world.
As far as the future, West said “You do not want to be part of the first generation of Americans that may have to say ‘We did not pass on the American dream.’”
West recounted his life growing up in Georgia and how hard his parents worked so that he would have a better life. His father, who was a corporal in World War II “Wanted his son to be the first officer in the family.” His parents’ dream came true.
