Can they go less than zero? He might not even retain his seat.

“Barack Obama spoke to the best in us when he ran for president in 2008,” said Congressman Allen West. “Today, he's running a negative campaign that says nothing about how we will end this economic downturn and put our country back on the path to prosperity. In Mitt Romney, we have a proven leader who will not speak to America with empty platitudes and soaring rhetoric, but will restore the exceptionalism of our Republic and secure the American dream for future generations. President Obama has been, and will continue to be, a disappointment. We are truly not better off as a country than we were four years ago. This election is not just about changing Presidents. This is a moral decision speaking to our greater Angels and the blessings of liberty and freedom we pass onto our children and grandchildren.”

Personally I think Allen West is a nut, but frankly I give Romney some credit for at least having a black leadership council. His poll numbers among black voters are essentially nonexistent, so it's not as though he has much to lose.

Yet the democrats who want more spending, taxes and regulation are normal? :D
Please stay on the topic of Mr. West and the black leadership council and keep the bullet points out of it!

Side Note: Michael Steele was so much better for them.

While I am voting for Romney he is hardly the knight in shining armor he is trying to make him out to be.
