Artur Davis, Former Black Caucus Member, Switches to GOP....HERE is the article
Barack Obama campaigned on changing politics in America. He certainly succeeded, but not in the way he or his supporters envisioned. Over the past decade, the progressive left has pulled off a hostile takeover of the Democrat party. Today's party is not the one of just a generation ago.
Artur Davis didn't leave the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party left Artur Davis.
OH, heck, the rest of the article's so good, I'm posting it here (but there's even more if you click on the link):
But parties change. As I told a reporter last week, this is not Bill Clinton’s Democratic Party (and he knows that even if he can’t say it). If you have read this blog (Congressman Davis' blog), and taken the time to look for a theme in the thousands of words (or free opposition research) contained in it, you see the imperfect musings of a voter who describes growth as a deeper problem than exaggerated inequality; who wants to radically reform the way we educate our children; who despises identity politics and the practice of speaking for groups and not one national interest; who knows that our current course on entitlements will eventually break our solvency and cause us to break promises to our most vulnerable—that is, if we don’t start the hard work of fixing it.A Black Democrat Congressman has changed parties...for such good reasons, reasons all of us blog on EVERY SINGLE DAY......OH, and, thanks to Elmer's Brother, THIS information is available. Moveon.org is running out of money and may have to curtail campaign projects for Democrats? Say it ain't SO! :-).....ANY THOUGHTS?
This made my day...maybe month, I'll have to admit.
