Excerpted from THE BLAZE: Allen West has been very candid this week. At the beginning of it, he criticized Obama’s U.N. speech, saying the president needed to say “The Angel of Death in the form of an American Bald Eagle will visit you and wreak havoc and destruction upon your existence.” But that might have just been a warm up for a new attack ad the Florida congressman just releases against his opponent in Florida.
“Feb. 16, 2003, Fort Hood, Texas: Lt. Col. Allen West had just received deployment orders, and prepares his men to go to war,” the ad begins. Then it turns to what his opponent was doing the same day: “That night, South Beach, Miami: Patrick Murphy is thrown out of a club for fighting, covered in alcohol, and unable to stand. Murphy then confronts and verbally assaults a police officer. Patrick Murphy was arrested and taken to jail.”
