Rep. Allen West said Friday that the tea party movement has “schizophrenia” if it’s going to primary him for supporting House Speaker John Boehner’s bill to raise the debt ceiling.

Rep. West is taking some heat for his decision to back the Boehner bill. We must admit we were surprised to hear him say the other day that he was going to vote with the Boehner bill.
Maybe he should watch his bayonets speech again. Just as a refresher…
