Once upon a time Artur Davis was a Democratic congressman with a promising future. In fact he was the first congressman outside of Illinois to endorse Barack Obama for president. He served as co-chair of the president’s 2008 campaign. He also was one of a few Democrats that voted no to the president’s healthcare program. He was unfairly criticized for this vote. He ran for governor of Alabama and lost. So Davis has had time on his hand to nurse his hurt. Davis is now a Republican and they are more than happy to have him. He is the kind of face they need to step up to the microphone and chastise the president, and now he has earned the national stage. He will be a speaker at the GOP convention. Of all the rank in file GOP elite why would this guy who just jumped on the train have something to say that the world need to hear? We have all heard the old saying “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”, well today I am going to paraphrase it and say “hell hath no fury like a former ally, wanna be great former friend scorned”. http://blogs.suntimes.com/sweet/2012/08/artur_davis_democrat_turned_re.html
