Allen West Jabs Obama Memoir, Thought About Naming His Book 'Dreams From My American Father'


More than six months after losing his reelection bid, former Rep. Allen West (R-Fla.) is moving closer to publishing his first book.

In the process of celebrating an ahead-of-schedule completion of his manuscript, West took a jab at President Barack Obama's memoir, "Dreams From My Father." Via a note posted on Facebook Tuesday, West revealed that the book is in its editing phase and will reveal his "thoughts as a man" and "a warrior."

Then came the Obama reference.

The prankster in me thought about naming the book, "Dreams from my American Father"…but you all will just have to wait for official release from our publisher. God bless and thanks to all who inspired and supported me in embarking upon this journey.

West's most recent Obama criticisms included support for impeachment as an option after a string of second-term scandals. In an interview with Florida blog The Shark Tank on Saturday, West highlighted the Benghazi attacks as a top reason for serious action.

We did something that is the most heinous thing that could ever happen, we abandoned Americans while they were under attack," West said. "You know that’s right up there to ask someone, maybe you should not be the President. Guess what? Richard Nixon stepped down over breaking and entering."

Two Fridays ago, West was clear that his future points toward a return to politics. In an interview with The Tammy Bruce Show, he stressed that these ambitions are about more than himself.

"It’s not about me; it’s about the team, it’s about our country and that’s what I’m focused on primarily," West said. "So after the midterm election cycle we’ll look into getting back into the political framework in 2016. There’s no doubt about it."
