West Anchors Glenn Beck’s Presidential Dream Team

Conservative talker Glenn Beck’s ideal White House ticket for 2012 features a pair of tea party favorites: U.S. Rep. Allen West, the first-term Florida Republican, for president, and three-term U.S. Rep. Michelle Bachmann, Minnesota Republican, as running mate. Beck, during his radio show on Monday, dubbed the duo a “dream team,” the Palm Beach Post reports.

“This guy is legit. He is very sharp,” Beck said in calling for a “draft Allen West movement.”

Beck cited a 2003 incident in Iraq in which West, then an Army lieutenant colonel, fired a gun near the head of an Iraqi detainee to frighten him into revealing details of a possible ambush. The incident cost West his command but he was allowed to retire with his rank and pension intact.

“The guy … led through war and he’s not afraid to pull the trigger,” Beck said. “This guy takes responsibility.”

“I think the same thing about Michele Bachmann,” Beck said.
