Another reason to {heart} Allen West: His Hummer

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

As gas hits $5/gallon and it’s not even Spring yet, while the government bans by decree the exploration and exploitation of our natural resources,
Allen West fills Hummer, blames Obama

Rep. Allen West says he is not happy that he had to spend $70 this week to fill up the gas tank of his Hummer, and he’s directing his anger at President Barack Obama.

“People have asked me before is there any area where I could praise President Obama? Certainly, he has an impeccable penchant for understanding the power of the bully pulpit,” the Florida Republican wrote on his Facebook page Thursday. “President Obama is also very adept at promulgating deceptive language masquerading as policy, actually just insidious political gimmickry.”

He continued, “This ‘tax policy’ is an example as well as today’s speech on his ‘energy policy’ shall be. Here is the bottom line, last night it took 70 dollars to fill the tank of my 2008 H3 Hummer, what is it costing you? What does it cost the president to fill his gas tank?”

Truck on, Congressman!

Congressman Allen West stopped by Bloggers’ Row and answered our questions,

Among his remarks,
“If your policies (i.e., the Obama administration’s) have failed, the only thing you can rely on is the politics of envy and divisiveness.”

“I am about economic freedom, not economic dependency.” Asked about his interview in the film Runaway Slave, “we’ve got to get more people off the economic plantation.” Here’s a link to the film, Runaway Slave. I attended a preview last night, and recommend it.
