November 8, 2013 – Bill O’Reilly Interviews Allen West on The Tea Party Status – Fox News

Tea Party Trouble?
“Some political observers say the Republican Party is being dragged down by Tea Party conservatives. Former Congressman Allen West assessed polls showing that a plurality of voters oppose the Tea Party. “The numbers reflect the fact that the Tea Party has been demonized,” he theorized. “If you were to ask about excessive government spending, onerous taxation, or growing debt, you would see people supporting those positions in a positive way. The Tea Party people should sit down and come up with a platform that says what they are for.” The Factor advised West that the Tea Party is losing the public relations war: “You’re right that the perception of the Tea Party is shaped by a hostile media. There’s no spokesperson for the Tea Party, it’s fragmented by design, so there’s nobody to fight back on the national level to get out the message that the Tea Party isn’t a subversive organization.” via O’Reilly Factor
