Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) visited Chicago on Monday and took the opportunity to re-inject himself into an ongoing debate over Chick-fil-A and the fast food chain president’s comments about gay marriage.

“I had to come up from down South because I wanted to try to open up a Chick-fil-A franchise here in Chicago,” West said in an interview with CNBC’s Rick Santelli from the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade.

    This is the man I wish Romney would pick for VP. He’s from the south, he’d carry Florida, he’s a real conservative, and he has the military background that would help balance Romney’s business side. I know I’ll here from some people who disagree, but we need to win, not have the perfect candidate – especially since there are no perfect candidates.

    It’s nice to see a conservative in office give back some smart ass to the dems. Love it.

    I’d go with West as well. He’s stepping right up, and smacking this hornet’s nest of phony outrage. Let the idiot swarm show the real hatemongers. West has got some guts.

    any Democrats that aren’t bots that listen to West speak are reprogrammed instantly.

    the rewiring is something that takes time though

    I can’t believe the #1 controversy in the United States is that a guy who sells chicken sandwiches believes marriage is between a man & a woman.

    If we could clone Allen West a few times it wouldn’t be long before the liberals would be committing suicide.

    Love West. He’s got a spine.

    By the way, for the record:

    Marriage is the union of one man and one woman NOT because I believe it is, but because IT IS, for Godsake.

    I’m so sick of arguing that the sky is blue and the grass is green.

    Regardless of the “Look! A Squirrel!” redirection of the Left to take away from things like Fast & Furious, et al, I think that the Colonel would make some mighty fine chicken. ;-)

    Our hopes may not be a fantasy here…Sarah Palin has vigorously stated that Allen West would be the perfect pick for Romney, and you can bet that Romney is considering him. In fact, all the attention he’s hinting at Walker, Christie, and even Rubio is simply a well-played ruse.
    Romney knows he needs a tough, conservative VP, and picking West would not only hand him the state of Florida, but would eliminate the race card completely, and launch the democrat party into a 16 year hibernation.

    Remember, the left is screaming mad because they want to get to work digging up dirt on the VP pick. Them not knowing is driving them nuts, and Romney knows this because he is doing it on purpose. He has already made his VP pick, and I wouldn’t be a bit suprised if is Alan West.
