More like Congressman Allen West please

Happy New Year to all my loyal readers anyone who’s reading this!

The 112th Congress will be sworn in in three days, and although I try never to put too much faith in any politician, there are glimmers of hope and optimism in this class, Tea Party conservatives and all.

Primary among them has to be Allen West, who was interviewed by the New York Times Magazine, which ran it this morning.  This is what I’m talking about:

Do you consider President Obama a good leader?
Not really.

[…]

Even though you’re a Republican, did you feel a sense of pride when President Obama was elected?
I don’t look to a man to get pride in myself. It’s not about having a black president, it’s about having a good president, and I think that’s the most important thing. This country needs a good leader, and I don’t care if he’s purple or green but yes, there are some people that saw in him a sense of pride.

You don’t necessarily hear a lot about people like Alan West in the media and such, because people like him scare the bejeezus out of the left.  See, in their world, African-Americans are only supposed to be mindless Democrats.

Read the whole interview, it’s short and sweet.  Very sweet.  We need more Republicans like Allen West. Period.
