Former Dem Rep. Artur Davis: “Millions of Americans” Have Left Democratic Party in Last 4 Years (Video)

Former Democrat Will Vote For Romney–

Former Democrat Representative and Obama Supporter Artur Davis told Greta Van Susteren tonight that he will vote for Republican Mitt Romney. Davis said,

“You leave a party because on a whole range of issues you just don’t feel the comfort, you don’t feel at home anymore. That’s where I am but I’m not alone. Millions of Americans who supported the Democratic Party four years ago have left because they no longer see their views and their common sense represented in the Democratic Party.

Another lib finds the light.

    Ok, so these disgruntled democrats will form a new centrist moderate party with the republicans, maintain their identity and ideology under a new name, purge the GOP of the extremists conservatives while the leftists extremists hold onto the democrat party, and the conservatives will have neither a political party or a voice.

    These same disgruntled democrats, with bipartisan support of moderate republicans will continue to advance the democrat party agenda, and everyone thinks this is a good idea?

    Billion-Dollar Scandal Not Ready for Prime Time

    [Sadly, this perception of political correctness is out of touch with reality.
    According to a September 2003 report by a GSE watchdog group, Fannie
    Mae Policy Focus, Fannie lags far behind the market in facilitating housing
    for minority and first-time buyers. As a matter of fact, the GSEs buy less
    than 10 percent of private sector loans to first-time African-American and
    Hispanic purchasers. Moreover, Fannie and Freddie acquired “more loans
    made to absentee landlords, vacation homes, and second mortgages than
    first-time homebuyer loans,” according to the report.]

    Lying Liars: Professional Left wants regime change
    in the Senate powered by ‘underwater homeowners’

    [They’ve got the numbers, they’ve got the votes, and – if they can
    get organized – they’ve got the economic clout. And we can prove
    it. … The number of people living in underwater homes is larger than
    the number of people living in twenty-two states and the District of
    Columbia. The residents of those states are represented by 44 Senators.
    … these homeowners could account for as much as 18 percent of all
    voters – if they all turned out to vote. It also makes them one of the
    largest potential voting blocs in the country.

    [..]

    Obvious bottom line? This is nothing more than another professional
    left flim flam to get the red states riled up to benefit the losers, the
    blue states.]

    This is a good thing. It goes hand in hand with the distance from Obama and his policies, so many democrats are maintaining.

    If democrats have to become republicans then the move is to the right. The left is weakened. Rino or no, they had to move right to survive. Tea Party Patriots will continue to shine the light for the lost wayward souls as they wander away from socialism.

    When was the last time we heard some good news for the president?

  • Limousine Barry

    What’s wrong?

    Millions of people left the Democratic Party because it sucks. These people were ask by my Union enforcers to kick back some of grease money paid to them – and they left. Others joined ACORN and took the money and ran.

    I don’t blame them. With the hourly cost that David Axelrod charges it has tapped-out all but the ultra rich liberals. If you add in the Jumbo Jet, the pilot, the fuel, the limousine and the security team hundreds of millions of dollars are wasted each month.

    Worse, Joe Biden charges the Secret Service rent on a condo he owns – just so the he can jet home each weekend and skim some money from the Taxpayer. The cost of Joe, myself, bus loads of 0bamabots and the teleprompter team jet-setting around is staggering!

    After my Cash 4 Clunkers scam and Al Gores Carbon Credit Ponzi scheme most democrats are strapped for cash. Al Gore sure knows how to skin a Greenie!

    And, with the high price of gas my fellow liberals can barely fill up their limos after I have tapped them dry with $40,000 per plate fund raising dinners. I am amazed more people have headed for the exit!

    Sure, I have almost bankrupted America. Gas prices are high, unemployment is high and homes are being foreclosed by the millions. But, I need your money and four more years to finish the job.

    My limousine is belching fumes and Barney Frank is in the back seat. Please make a donation and tip Barney with a hundred dollar bill. Those fives and tens are not enough to cover the gas bill. Good day.

    Well, he nailed me. Left the party on 5/31/2008~ the rules committee where the socialist/communist coup of the democratic party, led by donna brazille, was officially completed. We called ourselves PUMA~ Party Unity My Ass and there are millions of us out there that will now be voting republican.

    ——————-

    My thoughts as well. I view these people more as “infiltrators” than “newcomers”. These people will attach the ‘R’ next to their name and will start running for office as Republicans… and they’ll GET ELECTED! You want the Leftist Media having this guy on their news shows giving the Republican viewpoint? I don’t think so. The core ideology of this guy and people just like him isn’t going to change simply because he switched parties.

    My bet is that he’s still a commie, socialist, marxist, facist, lying piece of crap, leftwing nutcase who believes that gov’t debt at 100% GDP doesn’t really matter, that global warming is real, and that Obama wasn’t really born in Kenya.

    History repeats. I remember after the radicals took over the Democrat Party and nominated McGovern in ’72, there was a parade of people over the next decade or so who left the party saying, “I did not leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me.” Jeanne Kirkpatrick, a lifelong Democrat until the ’80s, famously derided her former party as the “blame America first San Franciso Democrats”. Evangelical Christian and lifelong Democrat Pat Roberton decried the immorality of the New Left which the Democrat Party embraced. Neo-cons like Irving Kristol and Norm Podhoretz, and Midge Decker all abandoned the party because the anti-war hippies that took over the party wanted to smoke dope and didn’t care about national defense.

    Just like in the ’70s and early ’80s, we get another high profile lifelong Democrat, Artur Davis, effectively say what they said, “I did not leave the Democrat Party, the Democrat Party left me.”

  • gastorgrab

    This explains why Democrats are moving even further to the left.

    The center is the new right wing.

  • donh

    Amen….and people are not just voting for an opposition candidate this time around….People are leaving and NEVER EVER COMING BACK….EVER.

  • Is he talking about the millions of “americans” that left America and went back home to Mexico? I bet they are still Democrats and vote by mailing in their ballots to Chicago. And I bet they’re still filing tax returns and getting huge earned income tax credit refunds. Mr. Davis better get his facts straight.

    Here’s a mystery; How can the GOP appeal to so many Democrats yet be “so extreme” so as to be intolerant of Ronald Reagan?

    is Jeb Bush this out of touch?

    #28: “My bet is that he’s still a commie, socialist, marxist, facist, lying piece of crap, leftwing nutcase …”

    Based on what? In the past, I’ve heard Artur Davis say things that were unusually candid and sensible for a Dem. For one, he publicly regretted his role in shielding Fannie/Freddie from a cleanup. Have any other Dem politicians admitted that Fannie/Freddie were a huge problem? Davis has already given indications of being honest and reasonable, so I’m not surprised that he’s left the Dems.

    well welcome to my world, been preaching the Republicans of today
    are the Democrats of yesterday, the Democrats of yesterday are the
    Progressives of today, the Progressives of today are the GREENS of
    tomorrow, the GREENS of tomorrow are the IslaMarxists of future
    generations, not to mention posting links to back it all up, for years
    now..

    but the bottom line is:

    Naziism is Socialism is Utopianism (by any other name) One Camp..

    I think the number of Dems who left the Party in the last 4 years numbers well into the millions. Take the Hillary/Dems who were furious about how the party treated her in their zest to get Obama elected. Then there are also the young college students whose idealism drew them to Obama. Now reality sets in and they can’t find jobs. Or how bout the Seniors who are terrified about their Healthcare future with Obama at the helm. Also 35% of Union members are going to vote Republican this year. And last but not least there are the ordinary Middle Class Americans who are upsidedown on their homes and now find out that banks like Bank of America are giving 50 Billion over the next 10 years to support the Environment and will not give a dime to allow people to refinance.

    Artur Davis had a “4” out of 100 rating by the American Conservative Union in 2007.

    It’s possible that he has had an epiphany, of sorts, but I suspect this is the kind of phony opportunism I see in “black Republicans” on a daily basis, and why I remain so cynical about them.

    I suspect he’s been promised some sort of job in the Romney Administration, and will eventually become an embarrassment, as they so often do.

    He can still vote for Obama secretly…

    Registered Democrat here who will be voting a straight Republican ticket for the second presidential election in a row. After the election, I will give up my party affiliation. I still haven’t decided if I will register as Republican or Independent. You can consider me a former PUMA as referenced in a comment above, but I have moved beyond that group since some PUMAs will still support some Democrat politicians, and many are liberal while I am moderately conservative. I will not show support for any Democrat in any election, be it local or national. The party means nothing to me anymore.

    After 22 years in 1990 I realized as a democrat I had never voted for a democrat Presidential candidate, I changed parties offically in 1995. I was raised in a blue collar/military family, so many of my family members have been veterans, and I’m sure not one of them while a democrat claimed to be a liberal. Through the 70’s and 80’s I watched as the party changed from being Democrat into this mess it is today! In order to beat conservatives, the dems, leftists, progressives, socialists, joined forces with the intention of making this a one party democracy! They are not tolerant, benevolent, or honest! They subverted every organization, from NOW to the Green movement! The left in this country is only interested in one thing, total domination of our Country. The last thing liberals are is liberal, the last thing socialists are is social, the last thing progressives are is progressive…….the one thing the left does well ………………..they are 2nd to no one when it comes to propaganda! If the conservatives win in November, they better remember one thing……..the status quo has changed……its not politics as usual!
