Conservative Rep Allen West (R-FL): Obama Is A ‘Rigid Ideologue’ Leading By ‘Intimidation And Scare Tactics’

(By Matt Schneider, Mediaite) - Republican Congressman Allen West appeared on Fox News and didn’t hold back with his criticism of President Obama’s leadership style and economic policies. Martha MacCallum wondered whether West was worried, like Obama, that if the debt ceiling isn’t raised then social security checks might not be sent out? West simply stated, “I don’t believe that’s the case.”

“My concern is that we have a President that is not willing to do his job and that is to prioritize the spending. That he is digging in his heels, being very intransigent, and he’s being a rigid ideologue. And he must understand that every single one of his economic policies have failed. So I think it’s time that he realize that he does not have the moral high ground in this argument.”
