Artur Davis Drops Support Of Pres. Obama, Departs From Democratic Party (VIDEO)

Artur Davis, a former Alabama congressman who switched voting Democrat to Republican, said he dropped his support for President Barack Obama out of frustration with what he described as the president’s broken campaign promises.

Best known for seconding Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention in 2008, Davis said he had hoped Obama’s presidency would make a huge dent in race relations, as well as move the Democratic Party further to the center.

After three and a half years, however, Davis said the only change he has seen is a political party more unwelcoming towards Southern conservative Democrats.

“I think the Obama administration has candidly gone too far to the left. You can raise all kinds of questions on whether that’s good politics or not,” Davis said on CNN’s “The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer.” “Obviously the election will determine that.”

    The former Congressman of Alabama now a Republican is quite disturbing. Its disturbing because of the manner of which this was done. On the backs of the people who believed that he could one day take our State to another level of understanding. He took advantage of those who believed in him and followed him because he was the Alabama American Story. Double Harvard from the other side of the tracks …tracks where Rosa Parks probably stood in his hometown of Montgomery Alabama. Yes you should be who you are all that you can ever possibly be or imagine to be, but don’t do it off the backs of those who believed “YOU WERE THE ONE.’ The ONE that the marchers in Selma”stood their ground “for. The ONE that survived Wallace standing in the school house door, The ONE who survived the 16th street bombing that killed four little girls.Am I Stunned …no…am I shocked….absolutely not….am I hurt and saddened yes….why….because the voters of Alabama particularly those black voters believed…believed that he was the ONE….boy were we HOSED….like a Bull Connor moment…except this time this ONE looked like me …
