Allen West winces at Dinerstein remarks, explains budget vote

U.S. Rep. Allen West visibly winced when Sid Dinerstein, chairman of the Republican Party of Palm Beach County, introduced him to speak before members of the Republican Executive Committee on Wednesday night.

In a dramatic introduction that began, “He may all by himself just have saved Western civilization,” Dinerstein followed with, “The first nationally recognized House figure that publicly said ‘I’m in’ was Congressman Allen West. And that was not just one vote, because Allen is the de facto leader of the freshman Republicans in Washington. ”

West was addressing the REC to explain his recent vote on the debt ceiling compromise, which has had many of his supporters criticizing and questioning him. He explained the decision as a sound one that had to be made in order to keep the federal government from shutting down, and he referenced his military background when describing a strategy that puts swift action above perfection in a plan.
