[Video below.] Rep. Allen West scored rousing laughs at a 9/12 picnic in Lake Worth over the weekend delivering his best Harry Reid impression.
Fast forward below to 1:30 to hear the quip: “Hey, the tea party, they’re going to go away,” he said in a nasal voice, crouching meekly into a position meant to show weakness.
The first-term West also appears to enjoy speculation about a future in higher office, teeing it up while at the same time denying any interest.
“If God be willing, certain things will happen in the future, but for right now, there’s a fight going on in your house, in the people’s house and that’s where I need to be,” he said, apparently ruling out a Senate run. “When you see all these websites and Facebook and the places out there with T-shirts made up and all that kind of good stuff, that’s ok. But the fight is right now.”
