Former Obama Campaign Co-Chair Now Supporting Gov. Romney...

Former Four Term Congressman Artur Davis and  2008 Obama Co-Campaign Chairman

You just know things aren't going so well when a four term congressman and long time supporter, as well as being your former co-campaign chairman decides to switch sides. Perhaps Artur Davis, knowing the inside scoop on the Obama plan is sending America a very strong signal. Could it be...BEWARE... of reelecting the Imposter in Chief to the presidency of this great nation?

CNN - A former four-term Democratic congressman from Alabama and one time strong supporter of President Barack Obama will campaign for Mitt Romney Wednesday.

A Romney campaign aide confirms to CNN that Artur Davis will stump for the presumptive Republican presidential nominee in the battleground state of Virginia.

Davis, who is black, may be best known for seconding Obama's nomination at the Democratic National Convention in 2008, when he served as an Obama campaign co-chairman. Davis said he had hoped Obama's presidency would make a huge dent in race relations, as well as move the Democratic Party further to the center.

In 2010, Davis made an unsuccessful bid for governor of Alabama. In May he announced he was switching to the GOP, leaving the door open to a future political bid as a Republican.

Davis said in June that he thinks his one time political party was becoming more unwelcoming towards Southern conservative Democrats.

"I think the Obama administration has candidly gone too far to the left. You can raise all kinds of questions on whether that's good politics or not," Davis said on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." "Obviously the election will determine that."

The Romney campaign says Davis will team up with Virginia GOP Victory Chairman Pete Snyder and a local business owner at an event in Arlington.

When a lefty speaks out and says Obama has went too far left isn't it time to take notice? One can only imagine how the the progressive collectivist left must be twisting themselves into knots right about now.

  1. An excellent get for the Republicans. A moderate I'm assuming that he'll be, the man is articulate and personable and even if there is a little bit of political opportunism here, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

    1. Will, you're beginning to sound like Shaw. That should be a real danger signal to your rational side.

  2. They'll just ignore it, or give him the Trotskyite treatment.

  3. Will gets it right!

    "...even if there is a little bit of political opportunism here, sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do."

    The poor guy wants to win elections in a southern state, he knows who he has to appeal to.

    1. Gee, lets see Shaw and Will, 4 term Congressman already. A Obama supporter until until now. Of course it couldn't possibly be that he evolved over four disastrous years of Obie that caused him change his mind. Of course it simply must be his opportunistic agenda. Or his "flip flopping."

      Ya know Shaw I admit to being partisan at times, and proud of it. But you take partisanship to height on par with Mount Kilimanjaro. It cult like in its obsession.

    2. I liked him as a moderate Democrat and I'm sure that I'll like him as a moderate Republican. And I did say, a LITTLE BIT of political opportunism, not that the dude was a total sell-out.

  4. They'll throw this guy under the bus, back it up and then repeat at least 1000x to finish the job. Nice to see, however that, representative Davis has the integrity to stand by his opinion that the Imposter in Chief is off the rails.

    1. Indeed Tim. There are more like Davis even though they may not make it public.

  5. Welcome Artur to the party that tends to favor equal opportunity more. (As opposed to the the Democrats, who believes that African-Americans are inferior and cannot succeed on their own without racist treatment to tilt the playing field in their favor: affirmative action quotas).

    1. Democrats pander to race as they hope if will insure they stay in power. It is all about power and control.

      The dems have their plan and the repubs have theirs. Both plans result in the people ultimately be under the yoke of intrusive government.
