FL Newspaper: Ron Klein really messed up his chances against Allen West

This must be Ron Klein’s terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.

After the democrat party in Florida revealed Allen West’s social security number, things seem to go downhill for the democrat. West is rising in the polls, he is earning millions in donations, he has clever ad postings around the FL-22 district of Klein as Nancy Pelosi’s puppet, and is a Youtube sensation among conservatives across the country.

The Palm Beach Post‘s editorial board left the impression that Allen West has practically won this race for House seat in Florida’s 22nd district thanks to the incompetence of the Klein campaign and the Florida democrat party. They even wrote that Klein’s “recklessness” does not grant him the right to accuse West of such a thing.

Allen West on Ron Klein: “He’s terrified”

One of the conservatives I am most excited about following news and listening to speeches is Allen West. A man’s man who is unafraid to take on liberals and those whose objective is to take America down a path unseen before in its history.
What is refreshing about this new crop of conservatives entering politics is their choice of not filtering out words to comply with the precepts of the media and the beltway. This is the type of authenticity that is sorely lacking in today’s politics. There is a reason why politicians like Sarah Palin, Governor Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Jim DeMint, and Allen West are so popular. We see in these politicians a bit of ourselves and an assertive attitude about fixing up Washington.
Allen West is not one to let up nor shut up.
The St. Petersburg Times wrote a profile on West that was somewhat fair, and educates the public a bit about West’s bio. West does not relent when it comes to defining his liberal opponent Ron Klein as “terrified” and the destructive nature of the democrat’s radical agenda.

GOP Candidate Allen West Claims Higher Security Clearance Than President Obama

Allen West, the Tea-Party backed GOP candidate for Congress in Florida’s 22nd district, is a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army. He apparently believes this entitles him to a security clearance higher than any clearance held by President Obama. He told an audience in Pompano, FL last week that: “I still retain a secret security clearance. And I tell you, if you look at the application for a security clearance, I have a clearance that even the president of the United States cannot obtain because of my background.” Watch it:

PolitiFact Florida performed a rather unnecessary fact-check, and categorized the claim as a “pants on fire” falsehood. PolitiFact called Steven Aftergood, a national security and intelligence specialist with the Federation of American Scientists, who explained: “The president is the one who established the security clearance system by executive order. Therefore it is nonsensical to speak of clearances higher than what the president has. As head of the executive branch and commander in chief of the armed forces, there is no information in government that could be denied to the president for security reasons if he determined he needed access to that information.”

West’s campaign doubled down on the outrageous claim when contacted by PolitiFact, however, and added several smears against President Obama. Josh Grodin, the campaign manager, explained that West meant that he obtained his clearance through a rigorous screening and security process, while Obama simply claimed his by winning the popular vote — and that Obama would not have obtained any clearance otherwise. “The fact that (Obama) admitted to cocaine use, travel to unauthorized countries years before, and his associations with Louis Farrakhan and Rev. Jeremiah Wright, he probably would not have been granted a security clearance,” he said.

As ThinkProgress has noted, West has a record of actual transgressions that could harm whatever security clearance he may or may not hold. (PolitiFact could not confirm that West still retained one). He resigned from the military while facing a court martial over the brutal interrogation of an Iraqi man: according to his own testimony, during a military hearing, West watched four of his men beat the suspect, and West said he personally threatened to kill the man. According to military prosecutors, West followed up on his threat by taking the man outside and firing a 9mm pistol near his head, in order to make the man believe he would be shot.

Allen West, Race Traitor, Welcomes Nancy Pelosi To The Jungle

The Congressional Black Caucus and Nancy Pelosi will be trooping to Florida to Allen West’s back yard to campaign for West’s opponent. You know, the jerks who released Allen’s social security number. In other words, evil Democrats.

New Allen West video: ‘To President Obama, welcome to the jungle’

Shark-tank dot net is all over this race.  Here’s the latest video he shot:

Click here to view the embedded video.

I met West.  He is absolutely the real deal.  Obama is out of his league.  What, Barry, is he not black enough for you?  Is he the wrong kind of black?  Explain this to me because I am not at all clear why you are not supporting an African-American seeking congressional office.

Romney reflects: Allen would have been tough

Christian Heinze turns up some unusually frank political talk from Mitt Romney, at a Q&A in Los Angeles:

"In my race, things happened that I wouldn’t have predicted, some good, some bad.

On of the good ones — George Allen, who would’ve been a really tough competitor — got out of the race. Boy, that made it easier for me.

On the other hand, Rudy Giuliani, who I was hoping would split the vote with John McCain, he ended up faltering, and so John McCain ended up getting a little more boost."

“Desperate” Ron Klein’s own poll reveals Allen West can defeat him

The race to become Florida-22′s congressman is becoming interesting. According to Ron Klein’s internal polling of 500 likely voters, he is in a tough race for re-election, and this is the first time a republican is actually giving him a run for his money.

48% of voters said they’ll vote for Klein versus 40% who are set with Allen West. Although the margin is 8 points, the trend is moving West’s way, and there is a 4% margin of error. In other words, this is a winnable race for West.

With recent news of Klein and democrats revealing his social security number, West came out with a new ad calling out Klein’s desperation.

Ron Klein’s pathetic attempt at labeling Allen West “too extreme”

This is the desperate meme by the left when they see a conservative tidal wave coming, and especially a kick-ass candidate like Allen West.
All conservative candidates in this election cycle are now considered to be an extremist, a kook, or out of sync with the rest of America. When it is the democrat party who demonizes the average citizen and pushes forth a radical leftist agenda.
Representative Ron Klein goes for stupidity in this ad, taking Allen West out of context, to fit a false narrative.

Florida Democrat Party on revealing Allen West’s SSN: We’re sorry, but West is crazy

It turns out Ron Klein was not the culprit of the ad that revealed Allen West’s social security number, yet he never objected to the ad created by the Florida Democrat Party nor did anything to prevent that number from being revealed.
After the threat from West to take these scoundrels to court, they scurry back like the cockroaches that they are when light is revealed. They claim that the inclusion of the social security number, is an “oversight.”
Yet in the flyer, they did have the foresight to block West’s wife’s name and home address, however an obvious social security number labeled “identifying number” was not blacked out. If you think this was not intentional by the Florida Democrat Party, you are kidding yourselves.
