Former Obama Campaign Co-chair Artur Davis to stump for Romney … “I think the Obama administration has gone too far to the left.” … Update: Biden’s remarks “racial viciousness” … Will Speak at Republican National Convention

 

My what a difference 4 years makes, “Hope & Change” has distance yourself from Obama, who has gone too far Left.

In 2008 Rep. Artur Davis (AL-D), the four term Democrat Congressman, seconded the nomination of Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention as he served as an Obama campaign co-chairman. However, that was then, this is now. Not only has Artur Davis left the Democrat party, but now he is totally distancing himself from Barack Obama. Davis is now supporting and stumping for the Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Artur Davis former Obama campaign chair says  Biden’s remarks are “racial viciousness”

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.

“I think the Obama administration has candidly gone too far to the left.

The wheels are coming off the bus.

UPDATE I: Former Obama campaign co-chair: Biden’s remarks ‘racial viciousness’

Artur Davis, the former four-term Democratic congressman from Alabama, said Wednesday that Vice President Joe Biden was propagating “racial viciousness” when he said Mitt Romney’s regulatory policies would “put y’all back in chains.”

Biden made the comments Tuesday to a predominantly black crowd in Danville, Virginia, a city with a long history of racial tension. In May Davis announced he was switching to the GOP, leaving the door open to a future political bid as a Republican.

UPDATE II: Artur Davis announced that he will speak at the Republican National Convention. Yes, that is not a typo, the man that just four years ago seconded the nominated Barack Obama as the Democrat candidate, will be a speaker at the Republican convention in 2012.

      If the Democratic Congressman Davis has noticed Obama, his Administration and all of his policies have gone too far to the left- why hasn’t everyone else in America done the same?

      That’s what I want to know.

      An additional item about Davis; in May 2012, he confirmed that he was considering running for Congress as a Republican.

      Seems relevant, somehow.

      I am glad to see that he has found better values.

      This guy is a professional campaign manager. I would be very careful about what work he is allowed to do. He could very well be a “plant” to feed information to the democrats.

      Artur Davis has not rejected his liberal ideology. This man has rejected Barack Obama’s far left ideology … far left ideology that goes beyond liberalism. In other words … another RINO will be afforded the honour of speaking at the RNC while real conservatives like Allen West who have been steadfast and loyal to the cause are not a consideration by Mitt Romney.

      Could it be that the compromising of conservative ideals is what it will take to defeat Obama … to save America from the advancement of a Marxist ideology?

      Rice hails Obama’s win as a ‘step forward’
      November 06, 2008

      WASHINGTON — An emotional Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice reveled Wednesday in Barack Obama’s election, calling it an “extraordinary step forward” for the nation. …

      She called the Democratic president-elect “inspirational” and said his victory was proof of America’s promise.

      “This was an exercise in American democracy of which Americans across the political spectrum are justifiably proud,” she said.

      “As an African American, I’m especially proud,” said Rice, her eyes glistening with emotion, “because this is a country that’s been through a long journey, in terms of overcoming wounds and making race” less of a factor. “That work is not done, but yesterday was obviously an extraordinary step forward.

      Also, there’s the question of her policies. While she has the foreign policy experience to complement Romney, some of her domestic positions could be an issue. ….

      On abortion, she is well to the left of Romney, who in mid-life turned against abortion rights.
      In a 2008 interview with CBS News’ 60 Minutes, Rice described herself as “mildly pro-choice.”

      “I myself am someone who believes strongly in parental notification. … I’m against late-term abortion, which is, I think, really very cruel.” But she said she’s not for overturning Roe V. Wade.

      “I have not wanted to see the law changed because it’s an area that I worry about the government being involved in.”

      Also, there’s the question of her policies. While she has the foreign policy experience to complement Romney, some of her domestic positions could be an issue. ….

      While she has previously endorsed Romney, Rice has not, like other potential vice presidential picks, campaigned with him. She has been the featured speaker at a few fundraisers and has given rousing speeches at closed events, but she’s hardly been an attack dog against the Obama administration. Rice has focused more on why she likes Romney in interviews. Her statements of public criticism of the president have been intellectual and thoughtful, rather than emotionally-charged like other potential VP picks.

      When their liberal leanings on the issues are considered … ponder the question as to why Condoleezza Rice and Artur Davis were afforded the honor of invites to speak at the 2012 RNC. In my world … Allen West is the definition of a conservative.

    12. RK on August 16th, 2012 5:14 pm

      To me, Allen West is the textbook example of a person who lacks the ability to think clearly, and has apparent societal issues that put him into a category by himself.

      When his policy position was commented on thus:

      “The gentleman from Florida, who represents thousands of Medicare beneficiaries, as do I, is supportive of this plan that would increase costs for Medicare beneficiaries. Unbelievable from a member from south Florida.”

      His inappropriate and unhinged email response was a personal attack.

      The subject line of the email: “Unprofessional and Inappropriate Sophomoric Behavior from Wasserman Schultz.”

      The e-mail said:

      “Look, Debbie, I understand that after I departed the House floor you directed your floor speech comments directly towards me. Let me make myself perfectly clear, you want a personal fight, I am happy to oblige. You are the most vile, unprofessional and despicable member of the US House of Representatives. If you have something to say to me, stop being a coward and say it to my face, otherwise, shut the heck up.”

      There is nothing Liberal, Conservative, Libertarian, Republican, Democratic, Independent, or natural in his unjustified, mean-spirited, disrespectful, bullying tirade of a response. There is no rational explanation for anyone to ever deliver such remarks.

      What ever he actually is, there is no place for that type of person anywhere in our government.

      Artur Davis implies in his own words that he did not have the choice of a “Bill Clinton Democratic Party” to fall back on when after 3 1/2 years the light final dawned that Barack Obama was leading the Nation down a far left path that was beyond liberalism.

      In other words … Davis did not reject his liberal leanings and embraced conservative values when he jumped ship 2 1/2 MONTHS AGO … he rejected the ideology of the Marxist sitting at the helm of the Democratic Party.

      Davis is bestowed with an invite to speak at the RNC? What an utter betrayal to steadfast loyal deserving conservatives who were denied the coveted platform!

      Allen West takes District 18 race; Crowder glad he ran

      The Associated Press has called the District 18 Congressional race a win for Allen West at 8:06 p.m. The crowd at West’s election night party at his Stuart campaign headquarters started cheering like crazy.

      Allen West jumped to big early leads over Martin County Sheriff Robert Crowder in each District 18 county, and the Republican congressman’s campaign hub is already buzzing with supporters.

      As to facts, I stand by the material I quoted. I presumed this story would be totally familiar to anyone who has followed West and his Cong. career. If not, my quotes are easily searchable; one 5-sec Google search (http://goo.gl/mXnWD) provides over 6,000 links.

      #14: Thanks for reminding us of a classic specious (crazy/loony/unhinged?) act of West. This is a great example of his demeanor.

      As the Miami Herald reported on 7-14-12 (http://goo.gl/eeMxV): “The McCarthy comments relates to when West riled up Congressional Democrats when he said about 80 are Communists — a claim PolitiFact ruled Pants on Fire.”

      Channeling McCarthy? Absolutely undeniable!!

      #15: I fail to see any relevance in your comment to the point I was making; nothing here speaks to the outrageous incident I presented. It neither refutes the facts or offers support of West’s action.

      Mere distraction, I guess.

      Christie’s Embrace of Islamo-Fascists

      New Jersey Governor Chris Christie held an Iftar dinner at the Governor’s Mansion in late July. He took the opportunity to declare himself a foursquare tool of jihadists and Islamic supremacists, and even adopted their language in deriding those who have pointed out how he has allowed himself to be compromised by them.

      Mark Levin puzzled by Ann Coulter’s bizarre endorsement of Chris Christie, who supports gun control, amnesty, Obamacare and climate legislation
      Febrary 21, 2011

      What is your great love of Chris Christie based on? The man supports gun control. The man appoints a radical Islamist to a judgeship. The man is for amnesty [for illegal aliens]. The man is, to some extent, part of the “green” movement. He campaigned for Michael Castle.

      And it’s interesting. [Mitt] Romney is being attacked, correctly by the way, for RomneyCare. Yet here we have Obamacare, we have 28 states challenging it: 26 states in one suit; Virginia in another suit; Oklahoma in another suit — and New Jersey’s sitting on the sidelines.

Artur Davis (AL-D), the four term Democrat Congressman, seconded the nomination of Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention and served as an Obama campaign co-chairman. However, four years later and too many extreme and far Left policies,Artur Davis has left the Democrat part and is speaking at the 2012 Republican National Convention. Artur Davis asked for a second chance that was the parallel to the theme of his speech, asking to “Let’s Take This Country Back”. The only thing missing was The Who’s music playing in the background, ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’. There are Americans who voted for the president, but who are searching right now, because they know that their votes didn’t build the country they wanted. [...]
