Arthur Davis one of President Obama's earliest supporters and a former co-chairman for his presidential campaign, announced Tuesday that he was leaving the Democratic Party for good.
In a post published Tuesday on
his website, Davis was vague about his future political endeavors, but
declared: “If I were to run, it would be as a Republican. And I am in
the process of changing my voter registration from Alabama to Virginia, a
development which likely does represent a closing of one chapter and
perhaps the opening of another.”
Davis, who represented Alabama’s 7th Congressional District from 2003 to
2011, was notably the first member of Congress outside of Illinois to
endorse then-Sen. Obama’s 2008 presidential bid. And it was Davis who
seconded the official nomination of Obama at the 2008 Democratic
Renouncing the party “is no light decision on my part,” he wrote. “Cutting ties with an Alabama Democratic Party that has weakened and lost faith with more and more Alabamians every
year is one thing; leaving a national party that has been the home for
my political values for two decades is quite another.”
But “wearing a Democratic label no longer matches what I know about my country and its possibilities,” he said.
I can only wonder how many more rats will leave this sinking ship?
Of course I question anybody who supported Obama, and NOW wonders what happened to the Dems as a Party. What part of their Socialistic / Communistic / Totalitarian government style did he NOT understand? This guy is 13 years younger than I am, he was born in 1967.
What part of Democrat did he NOT understand in 1985 when he was first old enough to vote?
What part of Democrat did he NOT understand in 2000 when he was first ran for Congress?
What part of Democrat did he NOT understand in 2002 when he ran for re-election after 2 years IN Congress, among his 'fellow' Dems?
What part of Democrat did he NOT understand AFTER he'd been in Congress and kept running and winning?
And now, after running for AL Governor and losing AS a Democrat, well, NOW suddenly, his eyes are opened, about the Democrats not being right for the country? PUH-lese! Are you buying that?
That is more outright, unadulterated BS than last Tues, when the g'sons tried to tell me they didn't know 'who' broke the TV remote in THEIR TV room!
Here's what I think.
Davis is, evidently, smarter than many in the Big Lefty Dem House of Goofiness, and he sees the country might be making a shift to the RIGHT. Rather than having to work for a living, he's gonna move to the Right and start over in Virginia as a Republican.. I hope the VA voters are not THAT dumb, and I hope Davis has to get a job at Burger King in Va Bch to make ends meet!
And I truly hope a whole BUNCH of Democrats need to start looking for jobs the first Wed in November! Especially that jug eared galoot in the WH.
