Republican Rep. Allen West Slams “Equality And Fairness”

Reacting to President Obama’s speech yesterday, GOP Rep. Allen West (FL) registered his concern with Fox’s On The Record host Greta Van Susteren over the president’s use of words like “equality” because they fly in the face of liberty, apparently.

“I’m very concerned about this very divisive rhetoric the president is using when he continues to talk about ‘equality’ and ‘fairness’ and this thing that I think is really contrary to the principles that I mentioned, as far as life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness,” he said, adding, “Because the government cannot guarantee happiness.”
