The Conservative Diva Breakfast with Lt. Col. Allen West and Rep. John Boehner

During the ride to today’s breakfast event in West Palm Beach, Ellen noted the West campaign had promised a special surprise guest, though they’d been reluctant to share any more details. Upon arriving at the Gun Club with my trustee Flip corder in-hand, I was pleasantly taken aback to discover US Rep. John Boehner standing side-by-side with Lt. Col. Allen West, addressing the crowd  at the front of the room. So like a good citizen journalist, I immediately began filming.

Lt. Colonel Allen West, joined by US Rep. John Boehner, discusses his run for congress and the current issues facing the USA.

Ellen tells us why she really, really likes John Boehner. ;)

Among my first thoughts as I took in the scene was that this hotly contested race in FL CD-22 must indeed be extremely competitive and winnable to merit Boehner’s presence in West Palm Beach. The last polls I remember seeing showed Allen ahead by 6 points. In the wake of righteous outrage following the VFW’s deplorable endorsement of West’s opponent Ron Klein (in addition to “Senator Ma’am” Boxer in California), I can only imagine that number will increase dramatically as word continues to spread among veteran and non-veteran voters alike. As Ellen and Kathy note in the interview below, the VFW is already paying a dear price for their misguided decision.

Another observation I couldn’t help but make — given the left’s penchant for painting Tea Partiers as racists — was that the “predominantly white crowd” (which had a few non-white patriots interspersed within) greeted Allen and his remarks with the typical exuberance and enthusiasm I’ve come to expect at all West campaign events. Clearly, South Floridians are taken with the content of Allen’s character, the depth of his knowledge of the United States Constitution and his clear, bold articulation of limited government, strong national defense, individual liberty and personal responsibility. And his distinguished US Army career supports his rhetoric and demonstrates his proven leadership abilities and courage in the face of adversity. As I noted, it is such a thrill for me to be able to vote for this great American as a resident of his district:

Looking forward to a November to remember!

Update: Sore Loser Syndrome strikes again. Via Jennifer at Liberty Pundits comes word that Allen West’s primary challenger David Brady joined the VFW in endorsing Ron Klein. RINOs will apparently not go gently into that good night even when voters tell them thanks, but no thanks we’d rather have the other guy at the ballot box. Despicable.
