Video- Allen West: 'I am Sick and Tired of Marxist Rhetoric from the President'

Talking on Greta VanSusteren's On the Record last night, Republican Congressman Allen West gave a strong rebuke of the President's policies.  You can see part of the interview below:

Here's a short transcript (emphasis mine)-

Greta- Those are pretty tough words for the President, I know you have a lot of passion about your views, but uh, the words:  any, uh, you a do a do-over on that, or do you stand by your words?

West-  Good evening and happy Easter, Greta.  I do stand by those words, and perhaps one of the things that one of the... many people need to understand is that the truth needs to be said.

When I go around and I talk to people down here in my district and we get phone calls, that speech that was given last Wednesday was absolutely beneath the statesmanship, or the atmosphere, or the personality that a President should show.  I am sick and tired of this class warfare, this Marxist demagogic rhetoric that is coming from the President of the United States of America.

It is not helpful for this country and it's not going to move the ball forward as far as rectifying the economic situation in our country.

And in case you missed the speech that Mr. West was talking about, you can watch it here (warning, extremely partisan and often factually incorrect):
