      Allen West Not Ruling Out 2016 Presidential Run
      The tea-party favorite returns to politics with a vengeance.

      Allen West, the fast-talking former congressman and tea-party hero, isn’t ruling out a presidential bid come 2016.

      “No one should ever sit around and say, ‘I want to be president,’” the retired lieutenant colonel tells me. “That’s a position that somebody needs to be called to serve.”

      West, who spent 22 years in the U.S. Army and one term in Congress before losing his bid for reelection in 2012, says he will always be ready to serve his country. “You have to have yourself in a position to be available for your country and to be obedient to God’s will,” he says.

        Which explains a LOT about his batshit craziness.

          22 year Army career, and was lucky to hang on to it.
          He was no standout performer, LTC usually takes 15-17 years to attain, 21-23 for a COL.

          If he hadn't screwed up bigtime after making LTC, following a usual career trajectory if he had later decided to retire, making Colonel beforehand was a pretty good bet. As it was, he was forced to retire and damned lucky to retain his rank.
