Not only would a Allen West VP make sense as a highly decorated combat veteran and a scholar. He has a better grasp on Islam and the role of stealth Jihad and what is being played out against the West on battle fields around the world.
Muslim Jihadist’s continued attempts to commit acts of terror against civilian non military personnel. Perhaps he may be tapped for the task of a complete overhaul on Janet Napolitano’s Department of “Homeland Insecurity?”
The Congressman would also put the race card to rest in the 2012 elections.

Mitt Romney was not my choice for the Republican Presidency. his failure to apparently vet Congress further enhances my belief that he is not the right man for the job.
In this election, it’s anybody but Obama, so Romney will get my vote unless something happens at the RNC Convention that would cause a floor fight. Remember, that is exactly how the Republicans picked Ronald Reagan at their Convention in Detroit.
“First time in 77 years there is a possibility that neither the sitting president and vice president, or the candidates for president and vice president have served in the military … and when I look at the number one title for president of the United States of America is commander-in-chief, that’s what concerns me,” West said.
West based his comments on what he sees as Romney’s need to fill the holes in his own resume with a running mate.
“I think that whoever Governor Romney is as a presidential candidate, he has to do his own self-assessment, self-analysis and understand ‘where are my weaknesses,'” West said. “Therefore, the person that I have running with me as my ‘fox-hole buddy,’ if I want to put it in military terms, they have to be someone who shores up where I see my weakness are so we can be a really strong command team, leadership team.”
West initially laughed when a student asked him to weigh in on a potential GOP vice presidential candidate.
“Oh man, there are cameras on here,” West said. The congressman then went on to tamp down any speculation that he himself was ever a potential pick. “I was never being considered,” he said.
