I know it’s one of the things a good military leader does best of all: Inspiring the troops. And this video clip proves that Allen West was a great military leader, because I came away inspired.
Yes, there have been some battles we have lost. The deficit is still onerous, out of control and destructive. The lame duck session exposed our Congresscritters as disturbingly contemptuous toward the expressed desires of the American public. The Obama administration’s foreign and domestic policy agendas are dyspeptic and feckless.
But here’s the deal, guys: The American people are still in charge. We still hold the power to hire and fire our leaders. We still hold the power to send them home in disgrace.
And Harry Reid is eminently mockable and I <3 the way Allen West is not afraid to do so (that's a "heart" for those of you who don't tweet :-)). It is apparent watching this video that he's not interested in joining the Old Boys Club on The Hill. We've got great men in this country. Here's one. And here's to our power to find 435 of them and get them in office.
And a quick tip of the hat to Weasel Zippers who scours the bowels of the internet so you don’t have to.
Now go watch that video. You need to see the Harry Reid imitation. It will make your day better. I promise.
