Posted on 05/30/2012 10:29:51 AM PDT by Justaham
Arthur Davis was first elected to Congress from Alabama in 2002. The Harvard Law School grad was quickly tapped as a rising star among Democrats. He became a Senior Whip for the caucus, co-chair the New Democrat Coalition and even headed up the Southern region for the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee. His eight years in Congress showed him to be a thoughtful, independent and energetic member. Yesterday, he announced he is now a Republican.

Watch boner start naming him chair of committee after comitttee. You always have to wonder if it’s a set up.
Wonderful news! Thanks for sharing.
[ Yes, both are too liberal for my tastes, but if the Democrats start losing people like them it underscores how radical and statist the Democrats have become. (Besides both Ronald Reagan and John Stossel started out as liberals.) ]
Yes, and some of the most Staunch Conservatives/Classical Libertarians are former liberals who when young bought the line that “we only want to help people” and they wake up and those people are far more “commited” to the conservative free market cause cause they have lived on the other side and have seen ALL the dirty laundry from that side.

Yep, those are the beggining signs alright. gateway signs to conservatism. ]
Yeah, Free thinking and rational thought are the gateway drugs of conservatism, ask John Stossel.
Yes, both are too liberal for my tastes...
So are about 60% of Republican officeholders, for mine.
if Obama had a son he would look just like attire.

Yay. Now there is room for more. The GOP has a big tent, and all are welcome, if you don’t mind the RINOs charging around. Time to turn JFK’s picture to the wall, folks, along the BHO’s, and turn Abe Lincoln’s back facing the room. Welcome back, freedmen.
That's correct. He's written essays for National Review Online recently, so his switch to the GOP is not a complete surprise.
Correct and typos are the new hallmark of not e-journalism, but an entire generation of government school kids who never learned to edit or double check.
” This guy seems to understand core principles better than the Republican Party Elites. “
He does indeed
Which is why we’ll need a scorecard to sort out the “good” RINOs from the “bad” ones. If the GOP is to be the dominant political party for a generation or two we’ll need to be a fairly big tent.
GOD BLESS YOU, Mr. Davis.....welcome to Sanityville, and congrats for escaping the Democrat PLANTATION!!!
...Of everyone’s ability to learn.
According to his blog, Davis is now registering as a Republican in Virginia and is considering running for a House seat from Virginia in 2014 or 2016.
The last few times I saw him interviewed I thought he was awesome, and then puzzled when they showed a “D” behind his name.
Davis is a Visiting Fellow at Harvard. ....So there, Accolade-Worshiping Democrats.
Don’t forget; Ronald Reagan was a former Democrat.
Yeah, yeah, I've been called all that and worse, but really, my name's not Davis. Thanks.
