Bill Clinton Looks at Obama's Problems, Points to Allen West

Absent any actual legislative influence or accomplishments of his own to tout in his campaign, Allen West has turned to whining nonstop about Barack Hussein Obama and his evil communist Marxist progressive liberal despicable agenda. Don't take my word for it -- check out West's Facebook page and look for a single example of a positive thing he's done for This Our Most Glorious of Republics. Nothin' doin'.

Maybe his campaign Facebook page? Nah. Obama sucks, unemployment is up, and that should  be enough for you to vote for West because COMMUNISM IS JUST SO AWFUL. You can tell how awful it is by how many of his commenters say it is after they misspell his name and say he should run for vise president!!!!

West has shit-talked his way onto the national stage and raked in money from across the country for his efforts. But it might be backfiring too -- his dishonest rhetoric is now being spouted -- gasp! -- at Obama fundraisers. By former liberal presidents.

Here's what Bill Clinton said Monday night, among a laundry list of difficulties Obama has had to deal with during the past three and a half years:
He's had to get all this done with a House of Representatives that had one of the Tea Party members claim that 78 to 81 members of the Democratic Caucus were members of the Communist Party, and neither the presidential nominee nor any of the leaders rebuked him for saying that.

This is not the 1950s. At least Joe McCarthy could skate on the fact that there were one or two living communists walking around. Nobody's seen a communist in over a decade.
Roasted. Conservative website the Blaze passed on the video, along with a valiant and incorrect defense of West's statement that says he meant "even though they may not call themselves 'Communists,' today's progressives have adopted the same ideology of the out-of-control state controlling private citizens. And that's not a whacky theory."

Well, no, that's not so whacky. Unfortunately, that's not at all what West meant when he said "I believe there are 78 to 81 members of the Democrat Party that are members of the Communist Party," and he went to great lengths to make that clear -- he went on television later and said, "I stand by what I'm saying" and went on Mark Levin's radio show and lied through his teeth about how progressive is just a code word for communist and how Congress is trying to put communist amendments into the Constitution. Then he said he did the whole thing on purpose.

West has a national anger parade following his every move. But now the Democrats are catching on -- and it's not just Patrick Murphy who's going to be using his statements against him.
