Mitt Romney Glad-Hands with Ally who says there can be No Religious Coexistence

They’re making mutual appearances, slapping each other on the back and shaking hands. In his run for President, Mitt Romney stopped by Port St. Lucie and had Congressman Allen West personally introduce him. The pair are public political allies.
