Isn't -- is Allen west in the news a lot these days anyways fighting in this very tough reelection campaign.
His opponents have not been afraid to take -- some of them pretty -- One local attack -- going as far as depicting the conservative congressman repeatedly punching two women.
It's not true it's not real solid to do have nonsense whenever the congress of wasting no time fighting back today -- -- The ads shows our way of punching women and stealing capital gold -- getting -- white women wanting female senior -- taking money from the families so that Playboy negative racial stereotypes they know who to blame -- -- mainly funded by the father Patrick Murphy.
Are you seeing all the attack stuff that is and is it in the -- they -- they're generally ignored a guy.
Who's getting attacked.
Now we called his opponent Patrick Murphy and hope to have him on soon but we thought it would be fair game to at least have the guy constantly being attacked on.
Congress and Allen wants to to have these.
Always a pleasure to be with you -- how -- you.
Well I'm OK you know I was a way a little loud I'm hearing about -- these attacks and -- reading on I don't know instead -- first when I heard about.
My god to -- beating up women I would have never assume that an -- and all of a sudden we realize made it very well lo lo and yet there -- a lot of people.
Who seriously think seriously think that that was the case.
And -- the old you you respond with a campaign.
What do you think of the way the media treats you.
Well I think -- when you look at their way to the media treats overall black conservatives there's a an incredible bit of duplicitous a -- Percy out there.
Where people believe that they can say whatever they wish about us and also look at that as a badge of honor because I think that this level of desperation that you already say.
Shows that the other side are opponents do not have any ideas they do and I have been have plans and so they have to try to attack your character which is not going to work.
And have essentially two years the united states military I think people need to understand I'm a little bit about strategy and tactics and -- quickly -- and counterattack to any attack that they will.
What are you doing what does it I mean it's one that does it look I'm not beating up older women -- that -- -- I don't know how what you have to do to set the record straight here but.
-- a lot of people will see in the -- -- even in the attack ads on you always -- to play on things and all but then people start talking about the dad.
And and they say stuff like this kind of -- to see the one we're -- west is hitting.
Leo ladies and and that that's when it takes on a currency and a life.
And the disturbing one of its own so how do you respond to that.
One other thing is very simple you define yourself before anyone else has the opportunity to define you.
And so when people see this -- they -- just actually discuss that they saw this despicable.
Many people saw quite frankly as racists or mean with a -- -- -- punching no white women to include a senior which everyone knows that it's not me.
There was no rally that was blatantly racist and into -- article but I -- oh my god to be read it as they should I -- we're on the other foot but not so -- -- Well like I say -- when you think about the fair game.
When you look at the liberal establishment and of course the mainstream media.
If you're someone that does not agree with them and you saw when that threatens them.
You know they'll for the life of me I can't understand why with the left one attack someone that was brought up in the -- of Atlanta Georgia.
The third of four generations of military service -- served 22 years in the military.
I've been -- for 23 years and have a wife with an MBA and a Ph.D.
as a financial broker.
We have two beautiful daughters one in college want to sell more high school where the American drink.
So while what they want to attack that because they're threatened by that because.
We're not part of that liberal let's be very honest that economic dependency plantation which they would love to have.
The V ad that you responded -- from the way you're trying to get in front of this before anyone frames you.
Is the same thing it's being recommended Paul Ryan -- So that is not -- -- a -- Keller on all of us what do you think of that and and any recommendations.
And advice ram and how he handles.
Well as I would say you have to define yourself early.
So that when these type of attacks come you can quickly Perry against those attacks and counter attack.
Because the longer something like that stays up there without a response for you -- it does start to take coal.
I think a lot of people believe the negative attacks do work and they do work if you don't.
Quickly turned against sitting counter attack and give something else out there put the other person on their -- so now what we have been able to do.
Is bring -- the local news reports have talked about how the -- races it's a very misogynist.
As well as the fact did you have a young man running for congressional office.
In his father has established a -- just for him for himself.
And you can't tell me there's no collusion between Sonny and daddy on this.
Well I would say it would no matter where you stand on the issues and stick to the issues personal stuff right or left is just as.
If it's insulting our our congressmen are well -- -- if you can't if you can't talk about the debt and the deficit this is what to resort to sense either way.
All right -- this just a gas prices now up sixteen straight.
