Rep. Allen West is at it again. By "it" I mean really over-the-top, reprehensible campaign tactics. This time it's a mailer he's sent out [warning, big file] associating Patrick Murphy with terrorists who want to destroy Israel. Seriously. Here's the image Florida voters see when they open their mailbox.
At a time when there's so much danger and uncertainty in the Middle East, we need leaders who will stand up for Israel. Unfortunately, there are some in America who are weakening that commitment, and they support Patrick Murphy.
President Obama, who hasn't visited Israel once during his entire term in office, supports Patrick Murphy. An anti-Israel group that received funding from billionaire George Soros and whose co-founder met with Hamas also endorse him. Murphy's Super PAC even took $100,000 from an alleged sponsor of terrorism against Israel.
Guess what other president never visited Israel? Yep. Ronald Reagan. Bush senior never got there during his tenure. Bush the younger went twice, both trips in the last year of his second term.
West is getting increasingly desperate, playing the George Soros card. It works to terrify his teabagger friends, but will it work with Florida voters? They might never have heard of Soros, but the American flag burning is enough to send the message.
Let's send West a message. Let's beat him in November.
