West poll shows him leading Klein after uproar over Social Security number

by George Bennett | September 23rd, 2010

A day after Democratic U.S. Rep. Ron Klein’s campaign released a poll showing Klein with a 48-to-40 percent lead over Republican challenger Allen West, the West camp said its own more recent polling gives West a 48-to-42 percent lead over the incumbent.

The “brushfire” poll of 300 likely voters by Wilson Research Strategies was taken Monday through Wednesday and has a high margin of error (5.7 percent). The poll comes after the Florida Democratic Party generated national uproar by revealing West’s Social Security number in an attack mailer.

A polling memo says West leads 52-36 among independents. The poll finds Klein is viewed favorably by 41 percent of voters and unfavorably by 38 percent. West is viewed favorably by 39 percent and unfavorably by 27 percent.

    Herr Klein is kaput

    Oy Vey

  2. ELC Says:

    Well this is the best news I’ve heard
    so far. I sincerely hope than Allen West
    pulls way ahead and beats this smug piece of garbage. Klein is so arrogant and he thinks his ****smells like perfume. Well news flash darling-you
    stink. What you did-mailing the man’s
    social security number in a mailer is beyond low and you definitely do not deserve to keep the seat.

  3. cs Says:

    Mr Bennet,

    300 people with margin of error of 5.7%, is that the largest margin of error you’ve seen on a major candidates poll? Isnt 500 people considered the smallest sample size usable for a voting poll?

  4. Jeff Says:

    I don’t believe this poll for a second.

  5. Jim Says:

    Why aren’t we discussing klein’s 100% support of the regime’s socialist agenda? Politicians are to serve at the will of the electorate. The regime has completely ignored that. 70% of Americans did not want obamacare, yet congress snuck it through with closed door deals and klein’s support. And what about this regime’s mid-east leanings? Have you forgotten your heritage Mr. klein??

  6. ricardus Says:

    Voting is not a right but a privilege. With the privilege comes responsibilty.
    Voting for Klein shows complete irresponsibility and if he should win, that’s America’s loss, not West’s.

  7. H.G. Says:

    Go West young man.

  8. Nevin Says:

    The blogs on the Palm Beach Post and the Sun Sentinel have many individuals claiming to have supported Rep. Klein (and even a former volunteer for the Klein campaign) withdrawing their support to the now beleaguered Democrat. Klein’s campaign clearly illustrates the depth of political chicanery that the Democrats are willing to go to destroy Lt. Col. West.
    How could the Klein campaign feign ignorance about the mailing containing Allen and Angela West’s SS#? Is it truly logical to say that an established Democrat such as Klein running in probably one of the nation’s hottest political campagaigns does not coordinate their advertisement with the state level Democrat Party? Do you really mean to tell the citizens of South Florida that there is no mutual consultations and funding from the state party to the Klein for Congress Office? Especially when it involves the mailing of over 60,000+ flyers to folks in CD-22? Get real!! It is more than likely the Klein and his top advisors knew about this and he should answer for it some how. It is like saying that Karl Rove, Haley Barbour, and other Republican leaders did not coordinate campaign strategies with each other to get Bush elected for two terms. How ridiculous!

  9. NOWEST Says:

    West testified that he did not know whether “any corroboration” of a plot was ever found, regarding his torture incident in Iraq yet, when he retells the story now he states that his actions saved American lives.

    Did West lie under oath, or is he now embelishing his war story to make himself seem sympathetic?

    “At the time I had to base my decision on the intelligence I received. It’s possible that I was wrong about Mr. Hamoodi.”

    Ron Klein is no Robert Wexler.

  11. Methinks Says:

    Robert Wexler is loyal to Israel, not the USA.

  12. Curious Says:

    GO GREEN — RECYCLE CONGRESS IN 2010

    GO WEST!

  13. West is Done Says:

    What a small sample size and large margin of error. This is a b.s. poll that means absolutely nothing.

    Colonel Allen West will be rejected by the voters who know that he is nothing but an opportunist. Not only could he not run in his own district because his chances weren’t as good (and because DWS makes him piss his pants,) but he has even admitted that this whole social security thing is about him promoting his chances to win.

    If the fact that he refused to accept a pretty honest apology and offer of assistance to rectify the situation wasn’t proof enough, West even admitted on Lou Dobbs yesterday that his campaign is so desperate he wants to make this into a national story.

    West, you can fool lots of people, but ultimately you will be rejected and the people of South Florida will take you to task out behind the woodshed for being a liar and an opportunist

  14. JAN SOBIESKI - Klein Obama's Pet Says:

    Obama walked out in a huff from his meeting with the Israeli prime minister, which signaled to Turkey and the other Jihadi terrorists that it was OK to push Israel around. The result was the terror flotila which was the worst existential threat to Israel since the Yom Kippur war.

    Now Obama is signalling complacency on terror attacks, by saying “US can absorb another terror attack”, which will be another signal to the terrorists that the government is not so concerned about them (such attacks). God only knows what the results of that will be!

    Any vote for Obama’s little pet Ron Klein is a vote to destabilize Israel.

  15. Desperate West Says:

    So someone makes a mistake and of course the desperate Allen West tries to play the race card, telling Joyce Kaufman that Democrats did this intentionally to keep him down on the 21st century Plantation. And this is coming from a man who says institutional racism is dead. What a frickin lunatic.

  16. Andrew Says:

    Klein published and distributed West’s private information.

    Klein’s supporters don’t care about this because they are bigots.

  17. Py Says:

    @Desparate West

    Klein supporter, one assumes a Democrat, accuses Republican of playing the race card. HAHAHAHA. Thanks for the good laugh.

    Pot. Kettle. You know the rest.

  18. Bill Says:

    Klein didn’t show up for his scheduled townhall meetings on healthcare because he didn’t have the guts to face his constituents(look on youtube). He voted with Pelosi 98 percent of the time. All his current campaign ads have attacked West without a single ad mentioning his record in congress. Klein is nothing but a Pelosi puppet that needs to be retired.

  19. 2012 - End of an Error Says:

    Klein’s a professional politician who’s spent a fortune on his campaign, without mentioning anthing about his accomplishments in Congress.

    Mr Klein, are you THAT ashamed of your record of 98% partly line voting?

    No worries mate, Pelosi and Obama will help you find a new job after the election.

  20. Neal Lang Says:

    “West testified that he did not know whether “any corroboration” of a plot was ever found, regarding his torture incident in Iraq yet, when he retells the story now he states that his actions saved American lives.”

    The facts are simple, stupid! Col. West got the terrorist double-agent to confess, and the attacks on Col. West’s troops stopped. Only an idiot like you and Ronnie Klein would refuse to see the obvious connection.

  21. Neal Lang Says:

    “West, you can fool lots of people, but ultimately you will be rejected and the people of South Florida will take you to task out behind the woodshed for being a liar and an opportunist”

    When is Ronnie West going to start running on his record, and stop his racist attacks on an honorable blackman who served his country with honor and devotions, and even jepardized his career to save his troops’ lives? Unlike Ronnie’s hero, Alhaji Hussein Obama, Col. Allen West loves his country and is willing to go anywhere in the World to defend her. Ronnie’s pal seems to relish going around the World and blaming America for the acts of the Islamo-fascists! Obama and Ronnie Klein have turned the once honorable and patriotic Democrat Party into the National Socialists!

  22. Neal Lang Says:

    “West!!!!!! Hope you enjoyed the Capital Hill Club yesterday. If the voices in your head haven’t already prepared you, be ready for us.”

    Another Obama-Klein supporter heard from!

  23. Neal Lang Says:

    “We are still coming for you West. We’ll get you tonight in D.C. Have your men on guard. If your voices in your head haven’t already warned you, game on!”

    He handled you raghead low lifes in Iraq, what makes you think he would sweat you in DC?

  24. Robert Says:

    Go west

  25. Neal Lang Says:

    “So someone makes a mistake and of course the desperate Allen West tries to play the race card, telling Joyce Kaufman that Democrats did this intentionally to keep him down on the 21st century Plantation. And this is coming from a man who says institutional racism is dead. What a frickin lunatic.”

    You Democrats don’t know how to deal with a blackman with a brain. Afterall, look at the dunce you picked to lead your Party into oblivion! Unfortunately, he is trying to take our country to the same destination!

  26. Neal Lang Says:

    “What a small sample size and large margin of error. This is a b.s. poll that means absolutely nothing.”

    Have you ever heard the term – “Push Poll?” Those are the kinds of polls you Leftist Progressives are famous for!

    “Unlike the Klein campaign, the West campaign released the entire poll, so it’s possible to see what order questions were asked and see if an earlier question might bias a later question.”

  27. Jose Ortega Says:

    RON KLEIN IS THE WOKINGMAN’S FRIEND. RON KLEIN REPRESENTS ALL PEACE LOVING PEOPLE REGARDLESS OF THEIR RACE, COLOR, AND CREED.

    ALLEN WEST IS A HATE MONGERING MILITARIST WHO SEEKS TO EXPAND OUR ILLEGAL AND IMMORAL MILITARY ADVENTURES IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

    ALLEN WEST IS A WAR CRIMINAL WHO MURDERED THOUSANDS OF IRAQI AND AFGHANI MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN.

    ALLEN WEST IS BAD FOR AMERICA.

  28. Rick Dallas Says:

    I’m a guy that really looked at Klein and West to determine who I will support. I have attended events for both and have met both personally.

    I can’t get passed the fact that Klein has voted 100% with union bosses and with Pelosi 98% of the time. I would have expected him to be independent and stand up for the right decisions. And now – he is only willing to participate in one public debate with West…that shows me he is not confident in his record and can’t match West in a true examination of the issues.

    Klein spent 4 years in Washington, I’m going to vote to bring him home. If there is one thing I am sure of, it is that Allen West understands public service.

  29. Jose Ortega Says:

    Allen West and Eugenics

    Allen West is a strong advocate of promoting a cleaner and healthier world by improving the human gene pool through eugenics.

    If elected, Allen West belives it is socially responsibile to require mandatory drug testing and mandatory sterilization of all women (including their children) who apply for state sponsered welfare; and/or food stamps; and/or section 8 housing.

    Allen West believes that eugenics is the key to ending all poverty in America.

  30. Mike Says:

    This poll was done because West’s camp needed a quick flash news bump.
    The poll judged immediate reaction to the best news West had in weeks, he was able to appear as a victim.
    It showed that Allen West was leading within the margin of error.
    West does things when he perceives himself a victim.
    He has gone so far as to hold a mock execution of an Iraqi he believed was in on a plot to kill him.
    Funny thing about that action, without it, Allen West would be without a pension and without any Republican support to run for Congress in a District he does not live in.
    West’s reason to run in District 22 boils down to he was told he had a beter chance to beat Ron Klein than he did winning where he lives by Republican Party handlers and operatives.
    West is nothing more than a smiling, snarling, tough guy, front man who is always the victim for the same Republican machine that has always been in Florida. He’s nothing knew, he’s window dressing for the people who are destroying the middle class.

  31. Good One Says:

    Rick Dallas says, “I’m a guy that really looked at Klein and West to determine who I will support. I have attended events for both and have met both personally.”

    Then he recites Allen West’s campaign talking points. You sir, are a fraud!

    By the way, if i can see West and Klein debate at an event hosted by the Sun-Sentinel, at an event hosted by the Palm Beach Civic Association, at a Temple in Del Ray, and once on TV, how are they only debating once?

    You Rick Dallas are nothing but a typical Allen West supporter, someone who lies and believes whatever West tells him too.

  32. Rick Dallas Says:

    As I mentioned, I have most surely become an Allen West supporter and was pointing out the reasons that persuaded me. I am not hiding who I am voting for in case that isn’t clear to you. I do take offense to being called a liar when my posts are very clear.

    Even if you argue their appearance on Putney’s TV show is a debate…the other two events haven’t been classified as such and it is unclear if they will interact or be able to question each other. I believe they are calling those events “forums”. By the way, out of the 13 forums or candidate events scheduled, why is Ron Klein only attending two plus the TV show?

    I don’t understand how you can defend Ron Klein when he has no defense for himself or his record…

  33. Good One Says:

    Lets see…..would you rather Ron Klein have attended the two candidate forums West went to on Monday night this past week and blown off his job (Congress was in session) or not go to candidate forums and do the job he was elected to do(been in D.C. for the session)

    Regardless of whether you like Klein or not, you can’t fault him for that one. I would want a Congressman who doesn’t blow stuff off just to be somewhere to help himself get reelected. I don’t see how, even if you want to vote out Klein and think his politics are bad, you can’t see that.

    And that is the reason why West can do 13 candidate forums—he is not currently in office. As a matter of fact, he doesn’t have a job besides campaigning full time. He’s got nothing else to do but get himself into office.

    I commend West for attending all the forums and putting himself out there, but it makes political sense for him to do that, plus he has the time. If it were flipped and West were a current Congressman, he would be doing what Klein is doing.

  34. To Good One Says:

    West has a full time job. Please speak of what you know, when you know it.

  35. To Good One Says:

    Seth Platt, please stop posing as at least 5 of these posters and go to school. Maybe you can become a lawyer like your Dad. But the most important thing is DO SOMETHING FOR YOURSELF. Lying about murder is slander and will get you in trouble. Find a friend.

  36. Publius Says:

    Good to see the Dims not hiding their racism anymore. About time you Klansman quit hiding behind your robes and outright express your rage at one of them there black fellers who wandered of the Dim reservation. Hell hath no fury like a dim Klansman scorned. Going to be great to vote against this reject Klein on election day. Thanks again dims for showing everyone what losers you really are and reminding us why you and your ilk should be voted out of office.

  37. Sam Says:

    This poll is BS. Dream on, westers. This guy can’t even manage his own household, i lost count on the number of liens issued against him for late bills

  38. Good One Says:

    West’s full-time job right now is campaigning. Yes, I get he is a military contractor, but I guarantee you he is spending about 2% or less of his time right now on that. Klein can’t exactly ditch what he is doing right now and full out campaign until Congress is out of session in October.

  39. Good One Says:

    Also, you are right that Seth Platt does post as like five different people. But i am not Seth Platt, I can promise you that.

  40. Paul Says:

    In unrelated news, today the Democrats released a poll showing that voting for Ron Klein is still preferable to eating multiple toads.

  41. Rick Dallas Says:

    Good One…Well it seems Klein has time to attend Democratic fundraisers and special interest group meetings. Check that out and you’ll realize that he makes time for just about anything except facing the general public. Actually – it is almost impossible to see or question Klein unless you are paying to be at one of his fundraisers…

    How about when Klein failed to face the people of District 22 at any of the town halls when the healthcare legislation was being discussed? He sent his staff instead. This is all documented via youtube. Most of Congress returned to their districts/states to take part in these meetings, yet Klein did not.

    Again, I ask why are you supporting Klein? Try to answer on something other than “West is an extremist”.

  42. CommonSensePolitics Says:

    Rep. Klein’s support for the stimulus package and health reform are leading our country so far into debt we may never recover. No one could manage a business or their personal finances in such an irresponsible manner. Allen West give our district an opportunity to reverse the disasterous course Rep. Klein has voted us on. If you live in his district, vote for Allen West on election day.

  43. Jose Ortega Says:

    THE TEA PARTY IS A VIOLENT POLITICAL MOVEMENT SUPPORTED BY REPUBLICAN PARTY MEMBERS AND RIGHT WING, BIBLE THUMPING, GUN TOTING, IMMIGRANT HATING, FACISTS.

    THE TEA PARTY RANK AND FILE MEMBERSHIP IS MADE UP MOSTLY OF NEO-NAZI AND KLU KLUX KLAN SEGREGATIONISTS WHOSE COLLECTIVE GOAL IS TO REINSTATE THE JIM CROW LAWS OF THE 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, AND 1960s. SARAH PALIN IS THEIR ICONIC LEADER.

    THE TEA PARTY LEADERS ARE SUPPORTING A VERY LIMITED NUMBER OF BLACK CANDIDATES, AS MANY AS AS A HANDFULL. THIS IS BEING DONE ONLY TO PORTRAY THE TEA PARTY AS A NON RACIST POLITICAL MOVEMENT.

    ATTORNEY GENERAL HOLDER MUST ISSUE ARREST WARRANTS FOR THE TEA PARTY LEADERS; AND RADIO AND TELEVISION TALK SHOW HOSTS: SARAH PALIN, SEAN HANNITY, RUSH LIMBAUGH, LOU DOBBS, GLENN BECK, MARK LEVIN, MICHAEL SAVAGE, TODD SCHNITT, JOYCE KAUFMAN, AND STEVE KANE AS THESE INDIVIDUALS ARE A GENUINE THREAT TO OUR NATIONAL SECURITY. THEIR DAILY BROADCASTS ARE FILLED WITH HATEFUL AND INCITEFUL MESSAGES AIMED AT HISPANIC IMMIGRANTS. THEY PREACH SEDITION AND URGE ORDINARY CITIZENS TO CARRY OUT VIOLENT ACTS OF REBELLIOIN. THEY ARE TRULY ENEMIES OF THE STATE.

    PRESIDENT OBAMA MUST SIGN AN EXECUTIVE ORDER THAT DECREES THE 2ND AMENDMENT NULL AND VOID; AND REQUIRES ALL GUN OWNERS TO SURRENDER THEIR FIREARMS AND AMMUNITION TO THEIR LOCAL POLICE AND SHERIFF DEPARTMENTS.

    WHEN HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENTE OBAMA GRANTS US UNCONDITIONAL CITIZENSHIP; WE WILL BAND TOGETHER TO STRENGTHEN THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WITH THE COLLECTIVE GOAL OF MAKING PRESIDENTE OBAMA; OUR PRESIDENTE FOR LIFE.

  44. Bob Marioni Says:

    I was a West rally today where he honored all Vets. His words were clear and true. Klein is a bottom feeder who is resorting to typical democrat politics which includes lying, distorting facts, and attacking his opponent instead of presenting his platform.

    Allen West is worthy of my vote and will get it.

  45. Jose Ortega Says:

    ALLEN WEST IS A RIGHT WING, BIBLE THUMPING, GUN TOTING, IMMIGRANT AND MUSLIM HATING FACIST WHO WILL PUSH FOR LEGISLATION THAT AUTHORIZES THE POLICE TO ROUND UP ALL CITIZENS OF THE MUSLIM FAITH AND INCARCERATE THEM IN DETENTION CAMPS PENDING DEPORTATION HEARINGS.

    IF ELECTED, ALLEN WEST PROMISES TO INTRODUCE LEGISLATION THAT MANDADTES THE IMMEDIATE CLOSING AND SEIZURE OF ALL MOSQUES IN THE USA.

  46. Jose Ortega Says:

    IF ELECTED, ALLEN WEST HAS PROMISED TO MAKE CHRISTIANITY THE OFFICIAL RELIGION OF THE UNITED STATES.

    WEST BELIEVES THAT ALL NON CHRISTIANS MUST CONVERT OR ELSE FACE DEPORTATION HEARINGS.

    WEST IS TOO EXTREME

    WEST IS TOO DANGEROUS

  47. Bob Marioni Says:

    Time to give Jose and jazeera their meds.

  48. Rick Dallas Says:

    Jose Ortega is an excellent representative of what Klein’s strategy is to defeat West…spread false information with goal being to frighten the voters.

    Also – Jose clearly has some problems of his own (mentally) and I do hope that he gets some help at some point.

  49. Clarence A. Kang Says:

    Mostly I manage to recycle my rubbish responsibly but it’s occasionally hard to stay motivated when I find out just what the rest of the world is doing to this wonderful planet!

  50. JACK GILLIES Says:

    WAIT A MINUTE; is this the same Ron Klein that does NOT return phone calls from the people of D22? Is this the same Ron Klein that REFUSES to return e-mails from the people of D22? Is this the same Ron Klein that DUCKS “open” town hall meetings with the people of D22? Is this the same Ron Klein that is SCARED to death to have a “real” debate with LTC Allen West in front of the people of D22? Well it is! Congressman Klein, the people of D22 have had enough and will retire you on November 2nd!

  51. Mrtin Maidenbaum Says:

    Lt. Col. Allen West is the man we need in the White House!! He is not a Politician, but an American Hero who calls it like it is. He represents every true American Patriot and will do whatever it takes in order to restore this Country to what it once was in every respect. It is time to clean house and rid ourselves of two faced professional egomaniacal morons who just don’t get it.

  52. stormyweather Says:

    Though I dont live in the district, my son served under Lt Col Alan West in Haji. He speaks very highly of his character and leadership , and has said that Col West is the type of leadership this country needs. Leadership is often best exemplified by handling pressure under stress and LTCol West has proven he can do that. All Klien has provenis that hes Nancy Pelosis and Barak Obamas lapdog.

  53. sandor spergel Says:

    it is sad that a man like col.wesupport st has to battle to represent cd22. klein is a liberal el;itist who has turned his back on israel to support obama

  54. Clay Drexler Says:

    He or his organization is not too smart. They sent me an invite to a money funding reception. I am not in his District nor am I a Republican. I am a Democrat. He must have assumed I was assumed I was a Republican because he addressed it using my military rank. He certainly did not use election records. Sloopy now. What if he gets in?

  55. Jackson Says:

    People, people, people…remember everyone is entitled to their opinion(s). Yes it is very unfortunate that the D-Party and Klein are puppets of a much large issue. Remember desperate people do desperate things when their mission is failing fast. When I need a good laugh I come here to read their comments…LOL! Without question the time has come for a CHANGE! The D-Party and Klein can keep on doing what they are doing (looking like FOOLS). They are only helping the voters make the correct decision when they go to the polls in November. The D-Party and Klein have never heard of the term and certainly DO NOT live by it – Duty, Honor, Country. Allen West knows it and lives it! GO WEST! By the way has anyone seen any poltical ads by the D-Party or Klein where running on the issues and not bashing Allen? NO! To the Klein camp/supporters – GIVE IT UP – stop beating a DEAD horse on Allen’s militry service and financial issues! Allen served his country, did what he had to do to protect his troops so they could come home to their families ALIVE not in boxes! Ummmm did Klein proudly serve his country or have any military background…NO! Yes, I know the military isn’t for everyone but Klein and party show NO respect to/for our military personnel nor support it! NO ONE has the right to question Allen’s military service who hasn’t been there…in situations! On financial issues get over it – not winning you any points! WHO CARES?!?!? What has Klein done for us? NOTHING! What will Klein do for us…NOTHING!!! District 22 it’s time to wake up and smell the coffee and get rid of the garbage! Let’s go towards a new begining – GO WEST!!! Allen West Thank you for your service to our country and thank you for protecting our interests! Klein, on Monday please remind Obama it’s your right hand that is placed over your heart!

  56. T6 Life Support Says:

    I am so impressed by the complete detachment of the Democrat Party from any word starting with the letter “R”. Words like, reality, recover, rebuild, renew, responsibility, reverence, respectful, and Republican. I would challenge them to embrace just one. That would be “Remove”. Or, maybe even “Reject”. Come on Progressives, be proactive and remove Ron Klein and reject his inability to have a single independent thought. Col. West, God Bless you, your family, and thank you for your commitment and service.

  57. T6 Life Support Says:

    Dang! If there was ever any doubt as to who should get your vote, check out posting numbers 43, 45, and 46 by “Jose Ortega”… It’s pretty funny that I always thought I was an Independent. Holy crap! I belong in the Tea Party! If this guy is typical of the Klein supporter, I can make a safe prediction that Col. West wins by a 15% PLUS margin and the election is called with less than 50% of the votes counted. Col. West has dedicated his adult life to 3 ideals: Duty, Honor, Country. As a Marine living in the heart of Texas after 10 years of Army enlisted and 20 years of USMC service, all I can say to Col. West is Semper Fi, sir. Go tear his ass up in the election, we’ve got your back sir.
    Hooah!

  58. Jackson Says:

    T6 – I couldn’t say it any better – GO WEST!

  59. Bob Says:

    Allen West is a true America hero, well deserving to win this race.

  60. gus Says:

    Allen West is the John Wayne type we need in D.C. He is a man that stands on his on two feet. He is genuine. I’m a country boy from Arkansas and I hope Florida goes West.

  61. BigBillRedBird Says:

    it’s very interesting that Ron Clown’s own campaign website never mentions taht he is a democrat, nor says Klein for Congress. NOT Re-elect Ron Klein to Congress. this implies that this fraud is running for the first time and is not an incumbent. trust me, Clown we all know you are the incumbent, and in this election of Throw the Bums Out!, i’ll be happy when early voting starts to throw your butt back to boca where you’ll hav eto find a real job for the first time in your life. i can’t even wait until 11/2, i need to vote EARLY!!! Go West!!!!!!!1

  62. Africanus Says:

    Hopefully this will be a crushing defeat for Klein and the dirty tactics of the Democrat Party.

  63. BigOl'Mac Says:

    On the same night West won his primary, Klein immediately started his negative smear campaign. I had to ask myself, “what kind of person kicks-off his TV ad campaign this way?”
    In the ensuing weeks, Klein has kept at it and then he publishes Col. & Mrs. West’s SS numbers????
    This is why today I donated what I could afford to Allen West and hope that you will too.
    Putting a person like Klein back in DC to represent us would be an embarrassment.

  64. Patrick Henry Says:

    Anyone, ANYONE, that supports Klein or the Obama Socialist/Globalist agenda is ANTI-AMERICAN PERIOD!

    How can you justify an agenda that refuses to do anything about the border when Americans are being murdered, then brings a lawsuit against a state that tries to get control of the situation? Then supports a dozen foreign countries joining the lawsuit!

    Then demands you get full body scans at airports even though the border is wide open and expects us to take the war on terror seriously?

    Wake up America, you’re being sold down the river by these lunatics!

  65. ScottW Says:

    I don’t live in the district, but wish I did for this November’s election. After hearing about Allen from 2 different people, reviewed his public record.

    The guy is amazing. He will make a great representative from Florida.

  66. Flagrante Delicto Says:

    Lt Col Allen West – Patriot, Soldier, who put his life on the line for this country for 22 years.

    Ron Klein – Lawyer.

    Any questions?

  67. JerShep Says:

    I believe some are missing the point. Those who like a big government socialist agenda then Ron Klein is your man. The interesting thing is how low the Dems have stooped to injure the challenger. That signals acts of desperation. What is Klein afraid of? Was it voting for Obamacare even though all polls indicated the majority of the country opposed it? This country is at a crossroads, regardless of rhetoric by both sides, the Dems and the housing mess got us where we are today. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd should be Tarred and Feathered, yet they stand up with a straight face and blame the right. Simply Amazing. What amazes me is how close this Klein/West race seems. What I am afraid of is most people aren’t paying attention. God help us, most seem too stupid to help themselves!

  68. cdpinla Says:

    I love all this negative stuff from the socialist Democrats – oops! “Progressives” as they like to call themselves these days….Progressive to what??? Shariah Law??? You know when West is doing well because the Dems are in panic mode. They have to get nasty and foul mouthed in their posts when they are losing ground. Saul Alynsky, here we come…..

    Allen B. West is an awesome Marine and a great American!!!! GO WEST!!!! America is keeping an eye on you. We support you in all you do. God Loving Americans KNOW the love of Sharia Law and Socialist Ideals is NOT the Love of THIS Country.

  69. Glenn Meyers Says:

    Lt. Col. West has run an honest open campaign while Ron Klein has turned to negativity. While Mr. West deals with issues, Mr. Klein deals with lies, negativity, badmouthing, and lashan hora. In the Jewish religion, it is a sin to use lashan hora (badmouthing others) and Mr. Klein has based his ENTIRE CAMPAIGN on this tactic. We all know what that will bring in November. Mr. Klein, you have undermined your own campaign. We the people have paid you over $700,000 in salary over the past 4 years, plus benefits, plus almost $3,600,000 for your “office expenses”, plus travel, plus, plus, plus for a grand total of more than $4,500,000 for what? You have co-sponsored 18 bills, one passed, 13 died in committee, and the rest are in limbo. You haven’t had an original thought in 4 years and you have sold Israel down the river. I am ashamed that you call yourself an American and a Jew. It is time for you to do the honorable thing and just step down, withdraw from the race, and apologize to this district.
