Friends, this left me speechless.
This week White House Press Secretary Jay Carney was asked which of the scandals currently plaguing the White House President Obama thought was “phony.” Shockingly…he had a very specific answer. Benghazi and the IRS.
Carney answered, “Whether it’s about the attacks in Benghazi and the talking points, or revelations about conduct at the IRS — that attempts to turn this into a scandal have failed.”
I’m enraged that our Commander-in-Chief feels that the American people’s concern over what happened in Benghazi is “phony.” And further, President Obama should outraged by the warrantless targeting of conservative groups by the IRS. No one has attempted to make these events into scandals…those inside his administration who perpetrated these crimes did all the work.
Patriots, don’t settle for less. Demand leaders with integrity, strong work ethic, and conservative principles.
Consider this…the White House didn’t just call the Benghazi and the IRS scandals “phony,” they also called them “not of the highest priority.”
In their own words in the very same press conference: “While important, are not of the highest priority to the American people.”
I can’t think of two topics more worthy of the attention of the American people.
As former military commander, I knew I had to have my priorities straight or the people it was my job to protect were going to die. If our President doesn’t believe what happened in Benghazi or the gross violation of our Constitution by IRS are not a priorities of the American people….he shouldn’t be our President!
I created the Allen West Guardian Fund for one purpose: to ensure we have leaders Washington who will stand as guardians of our Constitutional republic and change the face of American leadership. I’m not ready to settle for second-rate leaders who have priorities that are seriously out-touch with the American people.
Thank you in advance for your continued support.
Steadfast and Loyal,
Lt. Col. Allen B. West, USA (ret)
U.S. Congressman (2011-2013)
