Florida Rep. Allen West
is concerned about Iran and says that Rep. Ron Paul is not the leader the nation needs in the White House, reports Townhall.com
In a recent press conference, West expressed alarm about Iran’s increasing influence in the world of terrorism. He called for the U.S. to confront the issue more seriously and act to protect the safety of our country and others.
“Iran is the number one state sponsor of terrorism in the world, and we continue not to deal with it,” he said.
West emphasized the need to have strong leadership in the White House to deal with Iran. He took a shot at Rep. Ron Paul, suggesting the Texas representative would not be the man for the job.
“When I was looking at the debate Thursday night and a certain candidate for President stood there and said he didn’t see any problem with Iran getting a nuclear device because everybody has one, I’ve got to tell you, that’s not the kind of guy you need to have sitting at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.”
