New ad: ‘Without Col. West, my children would be fatherless…’

by George Bennett | October 19th, 2010

After absorbing eight weeks of negative ads from Democratic U.S. Rep. Ron Klein, Republican challenger Allen West launches this testimonial spot in which a soldier who was under West’s command in Iraq says West gave him his body armor and saved his life.

“Without Colonel West, my children would be fatherless today,” says Sgt. Robert Delgado. “Allen put his men first then, and will put our country first now.”

  1. West Scares Me Says:

    Alan West is far too extreme to represent
    South Florida. He should go out to northern Ohio or Montana where the para military types worship this sempri fi crap. We do not need angry extremists here in south Florida.

  2. BEST CANDIDATE Says:

    After losing this election, West can go back to Iraq and play Rambo

  3. Bob W. Says:

    Excuse me but I’ll take “Semper Fi crap” over Boca lawyer B.S. any day!!

  4. West for Sheriff Says:

    Crime rates would fall(population would fall also)

    WEST IS UNQUALIFIED

  5. West for Sheriff Says:

    BOB you can take your semper fi and shove it where the sun don’t shine

  6. Reply Says:

    Seth, please take your multiple personalities and well….. continue to write. It is probably theraputic to all of them. :)

  7. Bob W. Says:

    @ Best Candidate. You can go straight to hell you unAmerican piece of left-wing garbage! My son’s “playing Rambo” in Iraq right now.

  8. Jeff Says:

    Without Allen West, I wouldn’t have had to pay twice my homeowner’s associaton fees to pick up his slack because he refused to pay his (5 times).

    Without Allen West, the IRS would not have had to chase down his federal income taxes.

    Without Allen West and his extreme rhetoric, this community would be much more united in its efforts to combat tough issues in tough times.

  9. mike Says:

    Well, its official. Theres a new porter on the crazy train t-bag express. Its the nutty nazi West. He has joined the ranks with his fellow nutjobs like mama grizzly Palin, Rasist Rand, wacko witch without Constitution, Homophobe hypocite from New York. And lets not forget the crazy conductor Beck who you all aspire to be. Welcome aboard West.

  10. It's black and White Says:

    Take the soldier-WEST over the millionaire from Boca -KLEIN.

    Klein would be hiding behind a desk rather than out on the field protecting Americans.

    That’s the problem with people like Klein they like to send our sons and daughters to war, but keep their children at home with deferrments.

    YES TO WEST

    GO WEST!

  11. Soldiers -YES to WEST Says:

    Get the soldiers out to vote on November 2nd. Support a WEST!

    Klein disparages a soldier, demeans the black man just to keep his seat. West put his LIFE on the line, Klein well, he just rakes in his millions sitting behind a desk, living in his mansion and jetting off to Washington,DC.

    Elected officials aren’t guaranteed anything. We’re tired of lifelong congresspeople, who think they deserve a lifetime placement in Congress.

    Change it UP. NO to RON KLEIN!

  12. BIG BAD BOB Says:

    Blame the great Republican President Bush for your son being in Iraq, a place that NO AMERICAN SHOULD EVER GO TO, right wing MORON!!!

  13. Seniors Vote Says:

    soldiers don’t vote…seniors like me vote, and we are all afraid of Biker West. We’re voting for Klein

  14. Sari Says:

    Just read the nasty comments made about a person who SERVED in the military.

    It’s the hate, that is amassed by the Klein regime. Their ugliness is unwarranted.

    Hope everybody votes for Allen West, to show Ron Klein, the nasty attacks on someone who served his country is unwarranted.

    Why would anyone want to elect Klein when his minions spread such evil.

    The whole democrat party in S FL needs to be stopped in their tracks.

    NO to KLEIN

    YES GO WEST!

  15. Bob W. Says:

    Some people are real brave when they’re sitting at a computer terminal aren’t they?

  16. Seth Says:

    LOL, I haven’t posted anything here at all. Looks like you guys are gaining some fans.

  17. Jessica Says:

    Allen West wants to go to war with Iran and put more of our young men and women at risk.
    He better save that body armor if West is elected, he may need it.

  18. Bob W. Says:

    Tell ‘em, Sari!!

  19. NO to WEST Says:

    Allen West is a threat to every soldier in a Combat Zone stemming from his actions in Iraq, and his incessant rhetoric deriding Islam and Muslims.
    If elected REAL Terrorists will use his election as proof that Americans hate Muslims and want to quash them throughout the world.
    Allen West will be a Taliban recruitment tool, much like the conservative fervor surrounding the Islamic community center near Ground Zero.
    Wests fanaticism will bring the front lines of the war on terror to our Community, by propagating a man with vile rhetoric who denounces the faith of billions of innocent people of faith.

  20. Growly Bear Says:

    Send Ron Klein to build more homes on occupied territory in the West Bank & Gaza. And leave him there to defend the homes on OCCUPIED TERRITORY!

  21. PERI Says:

    ALLEN WEST WILL BE A CREDIT TO CONGRESS.
    HE WILL NOT TAKE B S FROM THE RULING CLASS.

    HES A COURAGEOUS FRESH FACE. WE NEED MORE OF HIM.

  22. PERI Says:

    THE LEFT IS TRYING TO SQUISH ANYONE BY CALLING THEM RACIST.

    NOW THEY ARE STUCK!!!

  23. Termack Says:

    I agree with the signs that say Go West.
    So I want to help out.
    Here is the Greyhound bus schedule,
    they leave every hour or so.
    Go West, no really please go, West.

  24. PERI Says:

    ANYONE THAT DOESNT PAY TAXES PLEASE RAISE YOUR HAND.

    THIS GUY WILL CUT CUT CUT. WE DONT NEED SOMEONE QUIET AND DOCILE. WE NEED A FIGHTER IN THERE!

  25. ELC Says:

    Personally, I feel Allen West is getting a bad rap. Unfortunately, I am unable to vote because of my location, but he definitely would have gotten it
    yesterday when I voted early. Ron Klein’s lips must hurt him because he’s so busy kissing Nancy Pelosi,Barack Obama’s ***. Klein can not afford to lose what’s left of his brains, but you
    have to give him credit of being a real
    *********. Allen stands up and atleast
    doesn’t hide behind Pelosi’s skirt. So
    if I could of-I would of voted for West.
    We need more Wests and less Kleins-don’t you think???

  26. Bobby Hudson Says:

    Many of the ungrateful comments ignorantly posted here are precisely why I now fully regret giving 22 of the best years of my life on active duty military service for this nation. I have recently been advising every young man and woman I see that they should avoid serving in the US military due to the true lack of support, as shown here, that their fellow citizens hold for such service. Meanwhile, my approved resident visa for Canada is due any day now. You all can have this sinking ship.

  27. B.S., M.S., PhD. Says:

    West will only win the far right fringe Tea Bag vote…Klein win win 60%- 40%

  28. B.S., M.S., PhD. Says:

    Bob, your comments suggest to me that you may need professional help. As a child were you ever starved, or locked in a closet?

  29. Bob W. Says:

    @BS, MS,etc. Please excuse my ignorance, since I only possess a B.A., and an M.A. However, I’m curious. Was your major Psych. or Sociology? Have you ever worked at a real job? Are you still living at your mom’s house?

  30. B.S., M.S., PhD. Says:

    TRAILOR PARK BOB

  31. Bob W. Says:

    LMAO!! Hey Ms. PhD, it’s spelled ‘TRAILER’ you silly twit. What did you get your PhD in; Basket Weaving?

  32. beth m. Says:

    hey NBC LISA & MSNBC OLBERMANN:

    GLEN BECK JUST GAVE A FREE 10 min HUGE PATRIOTIC ENDORSEMENT 2 LT.COL. WEST!!
    So verrry sad for ronnie & the weepy whiny Kleinette cheerleaders… try again in ‘ 12.
    Maybe by then he will emulate TRUMAN, WHO WAS NEVER ANYONE’S POODLE!!
    Go back to work like the rest of us in the sweat factories…”if you can’t stand the heat ronnie poo..”

  33. Born to Be Wild Says:

    BIG Bad Bob, tell me about PresidentBUSH….I’m waiting!!!!

  34. Born to Be Wild Says:

    Peri and Sari are the same Tea Bag MORONS

    they failed third grade

    West LOSES…

  35. Mike Says:

    To those of you who would say the sick things about Col. West above – shame on you. Truly you disgust me and unfortunately that is typical of Klein supporters.

    You should challenge West on issues all day long because that is what we should do as citizens. What some of you have done here is unforgivable and I hope you one day will regret your words.

    Go ahead and hide behind your computer screens and vote for Klein to go back to Congress so that they can continue to enact destructive policies.

  36. Cerabino Column Says:

    TEA BAGGERS check the Frank Cerabino column in today’s Palm Beach Post. This column has put the final nail in Col. West’s campaign. NOBODY will vote for West after reading this column.

  37. madmama Says:

    First of all, I’m sick of people referring to people who don’t agree with Obama’s socialistic agenda as teabaggers! The last time I heard, gays support the Democratic party and they are the ones engaging in ‘teabagging’…..BUT that is besides the point! As is all the other crap that Klein’s camp is spewing! They can’t argue the issues and resort to Saul Alinsky-like tactics.
    IS THAT THE KIND OF GOVERNMENT YOU MORONS WANT?????
    This country is going down the tubes at a faster rate than any of us Obama detractors ever thought possible…..
    Take a look at Europe you dopes (on the left) and look at OUR future! That is where we are headed.
    But of course, most of you idiots don’t have a clue as to what is going on around the world!!!!
    Most of you who support Klein and Obama’s agenda are FREELOADERS who demand your handouts, RACISTS for supporting someone only because they are either black or in Klein’s case, Jewish (what happened to electing someone based on their ability to represent the PEOPLE….something Ron Klein refuses to do!!!) or just a product of the public school system…brain washed by the progressives who have taken over the education system (ala Bill Ayers).
    I can say one thing….the people who support Allen West will not go down without a fight.
    Call us extremists all you want (I just happen to be a 47 year old mother with two little boys who fears for their future!)…sticks and stones will break our bones but names will never hurt us!
    We’ve reverted back to the 2nd grade now!!!!!

  38. KNOW WEST Says:

    As for Cerabino’s column — knowing Frank hates him tells me that West’s the man for the job. If nothing else, Frank can serve as a bad example.

  39. NOWEST Says:

    @Mike
    Allen West on the Issues:
    Supports Privatizing Social Security
    Supports Privatizing Medicare
    Supports a Flat Tax (Poor Pay More, Rich Pay Less)
    Opposes Woman’s Right to Choose (Abortion)
    Don’t Ask Don’t Tell Supporter
    ANTI Health Care Reform
    Supports Dismantling of EPA & Dept of Education
    Supports Off Shore Oil Drilling (Even Off Palm Beach)
    Opposes Nuclear Disarmament
    Supports Increased Military Aggression Against Iran, Iraq, and Afghanistan
    Supports Permanent Extension of Bush Tax Cuts for Wealthiest Americans
    Supports Deregulation of Banks
    Supports Deregulation of Environmental Oversight
    Opposes DREAM Act

    The Fact is that we know very little about West’s positions on the Real Issues because he predicates his entire candidacy on Extreme Right Wing Ideology rather than constructive and realistic ways of addressing the needs of Florida and America.

  40. Fellow Soldier Says:

    I served with Allen West in the Army. He is a charismatic leader who was highly dedicated to the best interests of his Soldiers. He was an incredibly effective leader and is extremely smart. He is not the extremist that his opponent makes him out to be, just a man who knows what he believes and is firm in his convictions. Klein just seems to be a guy who’s quick to be a critic, but not a contributor. Give West your vote!

  41. KNOW WEST Says:

    Seth — give it a rest. It’s all over but for the counting in 12 days. Ron’s going home.

  42. Soldier of Fortune Says:

    Hey, show some respect. Stop treating your veterans with disrespect, PEOPLE MAKE SACRIFICES AND THIS IS HOW YOU THANK THEM. I see people making ridiculous comments on this page, refusing to acknowledge the service and sacrifices these men and women made…..so I have a question Bob and anyone else who wants to negatively criticize someones military record…What do you know? you who sit behind a desk, and is able to enjoy the right to speak freely in our great nation, Tell me what do you know?, Nothing……Im not telling you who to vote for, or who you should be in favor of, because WE(MILITARY) fight for your right to democracy and a free country EVERYDAY.
    So to any military reading this post know that you are greatly appreciated and well respected, by a lot of people.
