The War on Women is on, and polls point out that women are running to support President Obama in droves. Obama is leading GOP hopeful Mitt Romney 60% to 30% among women in battleground states. What does Sarah Palin do? The half-term Governor of Alaska recommends Allen West for Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential pick. Let’s review a small sample of West’s history.
First, the video which proves Palin is no more capable of choosing a vice president than John McCain was.
West on women:
“Liberal women, West claimed, helped cause the debt by “neutering American men.”
“I must confess, when I see anyone with an Obama 2012 bumper sticker, I recognize them as a threat to the gene pool.”
On Debbie Wasserman-Schultz in an email he called her “the most vile, unprofessional, and despicable” member of Congress, he ordered her to “shut the heck up,” before concluding, “You have proven repeatedly that you are not a Lady, therefore, shall not be afforded due respect from me!”
“Can someone PLEAZZZZZZZZE get rid of Debbie Wasserman Shitz?…That yenta annoys the crap out of me with just her whining voice. Guys, can you imagine banging her (UGGGGGGGGG) and she’s screaming at the top of her lungs!!!”
In 2003, while serving as a battalion commander in Iraq, West oversaw the beating of an Iraqi policeman, Yehiya Kadoori Hamoodi, who he thought had information about potential attacks on his troops. When Hamoodi failed to give him the intelligence he sought—intelligence that, it turned out, Hamoodi didn’t have—West decided to simulate an execution, firing a gun next to Hamoodi’s head. The Army contemplated a court martial, though in the end West was simply relieved of his command and fined $5,000. He has since portrayed the incident as a brave decision to flout the rules for the sake of his men, but there’s evidence that he simply lost it: In a statement shortly after the incident, he wrote, “In my anger, I couldn’t remember how many shots were fired.”
The last mentioned Iraq matter deemed West as a Tea Party hero — which is part of the reason the Tea Party has faded into history.
All of the above quotes were taken from only one source – meaning, how many attacks on women has West subject the female gender to?
