Rep. Allen West (R-FL) gave an interview to Washington D.C. radio station WMAL on Friday, in which the shy and retiring former Army colonel quietly expressed a few mild criticisms of the Obama Administration’s recently announced military cuts.
Also, he’s just the tiniest bit displeased with the way both House and Senate Republican leaders handled the “payroll tax cut” drama at the end of the year. The hosts really had to work to bring Rep. West out of his shell.
West makes an interesting point about the timing of these defense cuts, which were announced even as Iranian madman Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was packing his toothbrush for a tour of South and Central America.
