#CPAC2015 Allen West “After a day at CPAC, here’s who I’m backing”

by Allen West

It’s 12:29am Saturday morning as I sit at my computer in the Batcave here in Washington DC attempting to recapture a day at CPAC 2015. Once again, it just warms my heart and reignites my flame to see the young people at the event who are stepping up to embrace and advocate for Constitutional Conservative principles and values.

They’re starting to realize their future and the future of the American dream is threatened. I participated in many interviews along the infamous CPAC “radio row” and for me, this is where we need to reach out to the grassroots base and Americans.

I have to confess, one of the fellas I enjoy seeing at CPAC is Democrat strategist Rick Unger — cohost of the Sirius/XM Radio show “Steele and Unger.” Rick is a guy with whom you can talk about finding a common ground from which to build better solutions. I have great mutual respect for Rick and look forward to being on his show with another fella for whom I have great respect, former RNC Chairman Michael Steele.

I also had the pleasure to reconnect with one of my oldest Army buddies, COL(Ret) Valerie Jircitano with her husband and her sister who is also a former Soldier and has a son who has been accepted to United States Military Academy, West Point. And there were many folks that I only get to see once a year at CPAC whom I was happy to see — especially those college kids who always tell me they’ve seen me x-amount of years in a row. And a real pleasure was taking pictures with the Citadel Cadets and seeing the students from Liberty and Cornell University where I spoke last year.
