Allen West: Debbie Wasserman Schultz is Vile Unprofessional Despicable – Shut the Heck Up

DNC Chair, Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL) decided to chastise Congressman Allen West (R-FL) AFTER he spoke from the House floor and departed the Chamber. Wasserman-Schultz didn’t like West’s support of Cut, Cap and Balance, which incidentally passed the House this evening. Unbelievably, Wasserman Schultz’ spokesman said West was not upset with Wasserman Schultz, but with the fact that “the truth hurts.” Hmmmm. You are “the most vile, unprofessional, despicable member of the House,” and a coward to boot. I’d say he was talking to, and of, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and her character (including the lack of it).

After Rep. West spoke from the House floor and then departed, Wasserman Schultz, from the House floor said:

“Incredulously, the gentleman from Florida. who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries,” she said, calling West’s approval of the plan “unbelievable from a member from South Florida.”

West sent an email back to her with the subject line: Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman Schultz:

“Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable member of the US House of Representatives.

“If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up. Focus on your own congressional district!”

“From this time forward, understand that I shall defend myself forthright against your heinous characterless behavior… You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!” Signed: Steadfast and Loyal

West also said he would bring her “actions today to our majority leader and majority whip.” I’d like to hear why DWS does not support a balanced budget amendment. There is no excuse for that – no defending it. She also knows that no one on Medicare currently will be affected by the Entitlement changes, and she knows well that Obama’s health care bill has already cut $500 BILLION from Medicare. I’m betting there is more to this story.

    Allen West Is All Out Of Bubble Gum

    Congressman Allen West (R-FL) came to Congress to do two things: kick ass and chew bubble gum. This week, he ran out of bubble gum.

  • Melanie B. says:

    I really like West, but he should have simply told us how Wasserman-S. sold out her seniors by voting for ObamaCare. Argue with the FACTS — the TRUTH.

    She drives me nuts, too, Sir.

  • Dirk Pitt says:

    Schultz’s face really creeps me out.

  • LorettaD says:

    This man has guts and back bone and is exactly why we need him to be on the GOP ticket for President. Alllen West is a real leader and a real man. Please get serious with pushing him on the importance of this happening.

    Rep. West shouldn’t apologize. He told the truth. The only reason there is an outrage is because she is a democrat. Had this been Republican on Republican this would be a NON issue. Don’t miss understand me, I have NO fan of the GOP. West is an american standing up for americans. He has my undying support. I’d vote for him for President in a heart beat.

    It is not unusual for a member to need to speak in response to someone’s comments after they have left the chamber. Each is commenting on public record and is only afforded the opportunity to speak at limited times. To refer to the comments after Congressman West had left as evidence of cowardice is simply ignoring the parliamentary procedure.

    To think that our elected leaders have to stoop to “shut the heck up” instead of speaking on the substance of the issues and arguments is disappointing to say the least. No matter which of the parties you agree with, Wasserman-Schultz’s comments were limited to the policy positions espoused by her fellow representative, not a personal attack.

    We should all demand better.
