Former Obama Campaign Co-Chair Blasts Biden, Will Speak at RNC

August 17, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Former congressman Artur Davis, who officially seconded President Obama’s nomination at the 2008 Democratic convention, said Wednesday that he will cap a remarkable political metamorphosis by addressing the Republican convention this month — calling for Obama’s defeat. Davis, 44, who served in the House as a Democrat from Alabama from 2003 to 2011, said in a telephone interview that he has been given a speaking slot at the Aug. 27-30 Republican convention in Tampa. He said he was not sure yet of the day on which he would speak. ButDavis said he planned to speak for millions of Americans who, like him, had traced a path from hope to disillusionment with Obama. After spending his entire political career as a Democrat, Davis declared in May that he has become a Republican. “The one thing that I can bring to the table is to be something of a voice for that group of people,” Davis said in announcing his speaking slot.

    Now, that’s what we like to read. I do hope he gets a standing ovation and a long chant; “No Mo Bama”, No Mo Bama.

    Seems like the attendance of Democrats at the DNC Convention are dwindling – at the this rate, I wonder if Biden is going to show up there!

    The only Black politican to speak at the DNC will be Bill Clinton, America’s first Black President.
    Oh, yeah, that’s right .. Obama called him a racist.
    Well, there’s Biden .. oh, yeah, he calls Blacks Ya’ll.
    Okay, Obama .. or is he a Black Arab, no African DNA in his paternal line?
    Okay ……. I guess, maybe, they can find a credible Black voice in the Marxists seating arrangement.
    Hmmmm .. maybe that’s because Black Americans are American first, and they’re as tired of this racist BS as anyone else.
    Yep .. we are all Americans first .. except in the DNC.
    Maybe that’s why Mr. Davis packed his bags and is headed to the American Party .. the RNC.

    Mr. Davis is an exception to the general rule “Too Soon Old – Too Late Smart” , welcome to our house.
