Hot Air Interview: Allen West

posted at 2:41 pm on August 30, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Down here in the trenches at the Republican National Convention today, we were fortunate enough to have Congressman Allen West of Florida stop by for a brief, but interesting interview. In it, he gives a nod to all of his supporters at Hot Air, shares a few thoughts on the Romney Ryan ticket and where the election stands, and discusses the future of the space coast in his home state. (Note: The clip is truncated a bit at the end as he was really pressed for time and pretty much everyone in the conservative media pool wanted him. Needless to say, he’s a pretty popular figure at the convention.)

Trying to squeeze in more commercial breaks, are you?

Have you no shame.

Why doesn’t West have a prominent speaking spot at the convention ?

NASA schmasa, when the Air Force can quit duplicating NASA’s abilities because NASA won’t participate in defense related endeavors we’ll talk, otherwise privatize those space missions.

Allen West voted to raise the debt ceiling and voted to continue the fraudulent Pigford payouts. He has told citizens to shut up, that they have no right to criticize government.

Naturally, Jazz loves him.

That’s strange.

Whoa. Good grief. Did Tina Korbe make a return to HotGas as camera operator? At least you can see most of Col. West’s head.

BTW, West was my #1 in the veepstakes, but after the past couple weeks, I think Ryan was the right choice. (No offense Colonel, you’re still very much appreciated).

Wouldn’t be HotGas without the early appearance of a HotGasbag.

he gives a nod to all of his supporters at Hot Air,

That would be me West! I voted everytime for you as vp in Patrick’s polls. And now I vote for you as Mitt’s SOD!
Love that man and thank you West for your service to our country.

Sidebar: What I like so much about West is -

He calls it like he sees it. And he’s not afraid to speak his mind.

THAT is what I want, for all politicians. And THAT is what I’ll get – in 1% of them.

If someone on the lineup calls in sick tonight, can the Col. be the sub…thank you.

Toure says his rights come from government.

This man is helping to make Congress what it ought to be. As much as I’d like him to be a significant cabinet member of the upcoming administration, it would be wasting his appeal, his passion, and his voice.
