Allen West – "Media is trying to put me against Cain"

Early Wednesday morning Rep. Allen West was asked to comment on the latest Herman Cain scandal while being interviewed on the WMAL Morning Majority  radio show.  “Beyond reassessing his campaign, he probably needs to understand that he is a distracter for what’s going on right now and we should move on,” Rep. West said. “That would be my advice to him.”

West’s comments immediately went viral and became the subject of ire for many conservatives who felt West had betrayed Cain and fallen prey to the liberal media’s game of Republican bashing.  Several hours later West released this statement via his Facebook account:

“The media is trying to put me against Herman Cain. I guess its good for them to see two black men against each other. The facts are I am not telling Cain to step down. That is his decision and his only. What I said is the media focus on these incidents and “alleged affairs” are a distraction, and we as a country need to move on from this subject and get the focus on what the GOP contenders can seriously do for this country.”

With Republican and conservative voters already extremely sensitive about the primary race and the state of GOP unity in general, West and other politicians will be treading lightly in the coming weeks.
