it appears they already did wise up.
Ex-Democrat Artur Davis
In attempting to appeal to a broader electorate, he lost the support of black voters by opposing national health care reform and failing to meet with certain black political groups. He ran in the 2010 Democratic Gubernatorial Primary, but lost by a large margin to Ron Sparks, a more liberal Democrat. Shortly after, Davis announced he would be not be seeking another term in Congress, but would instead be returning to the practice of law. In May 2012, he confirmed that he was considering running for Congress as a Republican
Sounds like his "base or those that should be his base" are ready to follow him. NOT!!!!
It gives me hope more black people will wise up on Obama. I have less hope for many white Liberals.
Great Speech by former Obama supporter.
"we should have known that night
in Denver that things that begin with styrofoam Greek columns and
artificial smoke typically don't end well." He continued: "Maybe the
Hollywood stars and the glamor blinded us a little: You thought it was
the glare, some of us thought it was a halo."
Davis switched parties after
failing to get the Democratic nomination for governor of Alabama—a
defeat some analysts blamed on his effort to tack to the center, notably
his decision to vote against Obamacare, a repudiation of Obama thought
to have cost him dearly among core Democrats. Now on the other side,
Davis reached out to voters who backed the president's historic 2008 run
but are having second thoughts.
"Do you know why so many of us believed? We led with our hearts and
our dreams that we could be more inclusive than America had ever been,
and no candidate had ever spoken so beautifully," he said.
"But dreams meet daybreak: The
jobless know what I mean, so do the families who wonder how this
administration could wreck a recovery for three years and counting," he
said. "So many of those high-flown words have faded."
Now, said Davis, "we have a country to turn around."
