    Once 'The Obama Of Alabama,' Now A GOP Headliner

    This is a very good sign for America a very bad omen for obama. This guy used to be a Democrat and an obam supporter but he has seen the light, maybe he can help other blacks wake up too.

    Four years ago in Denver, Artur Davis took the podium at the Democratic National Convention to speak up for Barack Obama.
    "I am honored to second the nomination of the man whose victory tonight takes us closer to becoming what we know America can be," he said.
    But now, as President Obama seeks re-election, Davis is on the list of scheduled speakers for the Republican National Convention.
    The former Democratic congressman from Alabama, who tried and failed to become the state's first black governor, is now a Republican resident of Virginia.
    And this time around, he will be calling for the president's defeat.
    From Supporter To Detractor
    Davis and Obama have known each other since their days at Harvard Law School. Davis was an early supporter of Obama's presidential campaign the first member of Congress from outside Illinois to endorse him.
    He was one of Obama's most prominent supporters in Alabama and helped the future president win the state's Democratic primary. But now, Davis says he is disenchanted with the man he helped to victory in 2008.
    "Let's not forget, four years ago, Sen. Obama said, 'We're the ones we've been waiting for. We have the capacity to change and to break this gridlock' and I think, unfortunately, some of the president's own policies have pushed us further apart."
    Davis voted against the president's signature achievement, the health care overhaul, which he said was pushed across with "an aggressive, party-line ... take-it-or-leave-it strategy."

    Hahahaha.

    This is laughable. I live in Alabama and nobody takes this guy too serious. Artur Davis will do or say anything to try and win a political seat. He is about as Republican as Al Sharpton.

    This will not effect Obama in the least bit. Just letting everyone know....Artur Davis is not a guy that will mean anything.

    Apparently obama took him seriously, he had him speak at the Democratic convention in favor of electing obama. Now suddenly nobody takes him serious when he decides obama has to go?

    I thought at first you were referring to Obama since Alabama is a solid Romney state.

    Oh yeah because people were all saying "If it wasn't for the Artur Davis fellow...I would have never voted Obama"

    He was irrelevant then...He will be irrelevant now

    If he was so irrelevant, why was he chosen to speak at the Democratic convention? Face it, "this is a big F***** deal."

    It is not a big deal at all.

    Oh please do tell about how the legend of Artur Davis's speech at the DNC propelled Obama to the presidency. Tell me how he shaped the election. How many people will even know who this guy is after the convention?

    Nobody zip zilch nada

    "Davis, who represented Alabama’s 7th Congressional District from 2003 to 2011, was notably the first member of Congress outside of Illinois to endorse then-Sen. Obama’s 2008 presidential bid.
    And it was Davis who seconded the official nomination of Obama at the 2008 Democratic National Convention."

    Artur Davis, former prominent Obama backer, leaves Democratic Party - Los Angeles Times

    The man theat seconded obama's official nomination has now said obama is a failure, yes" it's a big f***** deal."

    Go ask the Average Joe voter if they know or care who Artur Davis is. Seriously, this means nothing at all. Davis is not political headliner. He will not switch enough votes to make one iota of difference. You can quote all these news sources that are trying to sensationalize this, but at the end of the day...it won't matter to the average voter.
