Rep. Allen West takes on liberal 'losers'



110614_scub_diving_flag_west_605_ap.jpgRep. Allen West's weekly newsletters have been must-reads. In today's installment, the South Florida congressman takes on the flap over him carrying the American flag with him underwater.

"Then it seems there are some who wanted to find something wrong with me diving with a group of combat Veterans, some disabled, with the Diveheart program. It appears that my taking a U.S. flag down to a sunken wreck (artificial reef) for us all to take pictures and video just riled up some idiot Liberals looking for anything to criticize when it comes to me. Well, doggone sorry, perhaps next time I will put on a tie-dyed shirt and jeans, dance around singing anti-war, anti-American songs, and burn a flag. Perhaps that would endear me to the delusional dummies out there who are probably just jealous because they cannot dive to 80 ft into a hard current and proudly carry an American flag. What a bunch of losers!"
