• Allen West Considering a Run For President?

    Sure looks like it. Take a look at an article he penned this morning. The relevant portion is here:

    I want to share with you that we should not run away from trials, travails, and tribulations. We should count them all joy as we are being perfected for a greater purpose. A diamond is but a rock until it undergoes intense pressure and heat. Steel is purified by intense heat. We cannot seek to live a life where our goal is to go from one oasis to another. Sometimes we have to cross a desert in order to develop inner strength.

    Many are asking me to consider a huge undertaking.If God had not placed a challenge before me and closed one door, perhaps a new mission would not be possible. Here I am, traveling along the same path I took in December 2003. I am traveling with my “Band of Brothers” and meeting my beloved countrymen and women along the way, sharing my perspectives as well. …

    Where will this journey lead me? Only God knows. What a journey it has been so far!

    A source close to the retired Army lieutenant colonel told Daily Surge that West’s reflections do indeed demonstrate interest in a presidential run. With other conservative stalwarts including Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio as possible 2016 contenders, West would have formidable competition.

    What do you think: Should Allen West run for President or should he instead try to retake his congressional seat?
