Democratic Congressman, Arthur Davis has switched parties! He is no longer a High official Democrat. Remember, he was one of the ones that introduced Obama at the DNC convention in 2008.

He states on various interviews that he has had on Fox News and elsewhere.




The Democratic Party has gotten narrower and it's gotten smaller and it's fundamentally wrong on all the key questions involving the economic future of this country and our hopes of prosperity. And many Americans are beginning to realize that.


Arthur Davis: This isn't the Democratic Party I Used to Know
On Davis' Wikipedia page he is now listed as a member of the Republican party and has endorsed and is voting for Romney for President.

I couldn't agree with you more. The Democrats lost their way. They use to be the party for the people. They turned into the party of "vote for me, and you'll get somethng in return" party.

That does not make any sense. His own party is not as good as it used to be so instead of trying to rework things, he jumps ship and just goes to the opposite side altogether? I do not see how Democrats getting sloppy makes Republicans better.

He was a life-long Democrat, sooner or later you need to jump ship before it sinks.

How long will it take for him to figure out the republican party isn't what they used to be either. Both parties are consumed by greed. Independent is the only way to go.

The Democrats and Republicans have both lost their way. The campaigning has gotten a little better since that congress woman got shotand it's about time they got out of the massive blame throwing they were doing. The Republicans are still trying to make the Democrats fail, how can we even know if their idea would have worked when it was sabotaged so bad. Keep in mind that the Republicans were in charge when the Economy collapsed. I personally think we should boot all their a$$es out of Washington and hire some less corruptible people to work there. Kick out all the lawyers that complicate things also and all the lobbyists. Maybe keep the Janitors for the whitehouse though so they can clean up all the crap there. Boy I seem to be a little cranky today.

I am not disputing that. What I am saying is that if you have spent your whole life believing that the other boat is even worse than the water, why jump to the other boat?

I know my history. It seems convenient for most people to forgot or selectively recall history.

It's easier to understand the analogy of jumping to another sinking ship when you consider that the Obama administration is putting MORE water into the boat.

To paraphrase, "We have to sink this ship in order to make it float."

Yes, this one minor defection can't cover up the ugliness of the GOP's position on abortion.

it's pissed off enough people to where they won't ever cast a vote for Romney/Ryan.

Congratulations, Republicans?

Keep on living in your fantasy world where Romney can win. The rest of us know it has already been determined.

Yes let's look at the "positions" on abortion shall we.

Since the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision, 54 million abortions have been done in the U.S. ( give or take for medical and rape).

So, you and all the others support this for real ?

1. Compare that to the total war casualties since 1973.

2. Now explain who is out of their minds.

3. Decide who supports mass murder now, and who gets paid the big money.

54,559,615 Abortions Since Roe vs. Wade Decision in 1973


Pro-Abortion in general = Mass Murder ?

Totally agree with this from Rockpuck.

Also - People jump parties all the time. Their egos get involved. If they cant' win a poltiical race by being in their party, they jump to (I) or jump to the other side. Charlie Christ of Florida is a great example. The dude failed as a Republican so he jumped to (I) and then just this past week ... while trying (and failing) to stay relevant ... he endorsed Obama. Like anyone cares??

Like the WISE FOLKS here are telling the OP, BOTH Democrat and Republican parties are NOTHING like they used to be!!

But the OP refuses to drop the POM-POMS and seems to never stop with the CHEER-LEADING for the Republicans!!! SAD AND UNINFORMED or either STUBBORNLY IGNORANT. Or online PAID SHILLS??

Wheres that VOMITING emotion-icon? I need it for threads like this
