Rep. Allen West (R-FL) attacked President Obama for using the word “Forward” as his campaign slogan at a Republican Jewish Coalition rally in Boca Raton, Florida on Sunday, reports RawStory.com (video below).
Rep. West said: “This is about whether we continue to be a republic governed by the Constitution. Or will we become a liberal-progressive, bureaucratic, welfare nanny state, which is exactly what the other side wants?”
“They want to bring out an old Soviet Union, Marxist-Socialist theme for their campaign called ‘Forward’. I have to ask you one simple question. Where is the Soviet Union today?”
Rep. West failed to mention that “Forward” is also the motto of the stae of Wisconsin, which Republican vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan represents.
