TOP OBAMA CHAMPION SWITCHES FOR ROMNEY
WND ^ | 17/8/12 | Joe Kovacs

In 2008, he was one of the biggest champions for Barack Obama, even serving as an Obama campaign co-chairman and seconding Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

Today, Artur Davis, a former four-term Democratic congressman from Alabama is now supporting Republican Mitt Romney for president, and is joining him on the campaign trail in Arlington, Va.

Just last month in Falls Church, Va., Davis gave a rousing address to the Northern Virginia Tea Party, rallying the crowd to defeat his former ally Obama.

The Birmingham News indicated “Davis’ sermon-like speech, invoking both the 1980 Reagan revolution and Rosa Parks, earned a standing ovation and chants of ‘USA.’”

During that speech (scroll down for video), Davis also encouraged young people: “You tell everybody your age that being Republican is cool, being conservative is the right thing to do. It’s the right set of values. You testify, you minister, and you bring ‘em on board with you, because we’re not going to concede young people to the Democratic Party in 2012.”

He’s going to get put through hell. Freepers should attack all the message boards of the msm articles (if there are any) and defend this guy.

Was not that long ago that another by the name of Zell got up and said his piece on the failure of the socialist party.

Gutsy guy,to be sure.I hope he’s prepared to hear “Uncle Tom” about 50 times a day for the rest of his life from his former pals.But he needn’t fear hearing the word “racist”.I doubt that the Rats are *that* stupid.

Davis, Douglas Wilder, and others like them who are stepping out on a limb won’t be forgotten. They’ll get a seat at the table in a Romney administration and Jackson/Sharpton and the other race baiters will be left out in the cold.

There’s a YouTube video of the Dems in full cry during some hearing about Fannie/Freddie in 2004/5, Maxine praising Raines, Barney saying no problems, others crying racism, usual crap. Davis at least seemed interested in the facts & that’s why I remembered him, about the only one showing any sense.

"Obama campaign co-chairman and seconding Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention."

I'm glad he saw the light.
