Somehow, Allen West managed to serve for two years in the United States House of Representatives without ever once figuring out how exactly the government works.
In an interview with NewsMax's Steve Malzberg last week, the devoted conspiracy theorist and instigator charged that, by refusing to cave Tea Party demands to defund the Affordable Care Act, President Obama was acting like a "spoiled brat child" because Americans gave him "everything he has wanted" by electing him president.
Apparently, West fails to realize that people generally vote for the candidates who want to accomplish the same things that the people want to see accomplished.
Yesterday, West returned to Malzberg's show, this time to declare that "King Obama" has established a "monarchy" in the United States because the Affordable Care Act "is not the law of the land, it's an edict."
Allen West must have been hibernating during the full two years for which the bill was debated before finally passing in both the House and Senate.
West also derided Congressional passage of a clean continuing resolution and debt ceiling hike in order to reopen the government and avoid default as "a large leap toward losing the great republic" of the United States.
"Shame on us as an American people to fall into this, in letting this usurper and this petty charlatan take this great country away from us."
