More Information On Artur Davis (Already Available For TBD Viewers)

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/09/01

For those of you who don’t know about Artur Davis, he was a Democrat member of the Congressional Black Caucus, and a Representative from the great state of Alabama. He lost his bid to become the Democrat Governor of Alabama, and this year, having moved from Alabama to Virginia, has also moved from Democrat to Republican. Like Ronald Reagan, Texas Governor Rick Perry, and many Democrat politicians before him, he declared he hadn’t left the Democrat Party but rather the Democrat Party left him.

And Artur Davis, the black man who was once tagged as a great up-and-coming power broker in the Democrat Party, who seconded Baraka Hussein Obama’s nomination for President and introduced him to the Democrat Convention in 2008, absolutely rocked the Republican Convention in 2012. Absolutely killed it.


Remember 2009 to 2011: lesson learned. 2012: mistake corrected. Yowza! Baraka Hussein Obama: merely a man I once knew. And the angels rejoiced!

Now, there are many Socialists, such as Perry Hood, the 77 year old Socialist from Lewes, Delaware, who cynically declared that Artur Davis only switched parties to stand a better chance to get elected in the future out of very Conservative Alabama. The fact Artur Davis moved to northern Virginia aside, there was a possibility that such dishonest and cynical Socialists had a point. So I decided to do a bit more research. And that research involved examining information found right here at Truth Before Dishonor.

How did Artur Davis vote on ObamaCare? Especially since Artur Davis loudly and derisively declared that the Democrats refused to add a single Republican option to the monstrosity and the monstrosity was passed without a single Republican vote? And since Artur Davis noted that 50 percent of Americans are Republican? (More accurately, it’s about a 34/34 split with 32 percent being too wishy-washy and uncaring about the government that is wrecking their lives and the lives of their children.)

Well, Truth Before Dishonor has had that information for a very long time now. It’s in the ObamaCare Roll Call page. That’s right, a whole page devoted to the ObamaCare Roll Call. Artur Davis’ votes are recorded here.

How did Artur Davis vote on that Socialist wet dream that refused any Republican input and didn’t get a single Republican vote? He voted NO and NO again. He voted with the Republicans and against the Socialist Democrats both times. So, did Artur Davis switch parties out of self-serving expediency like the septa-genarian Socialist from Lewes, Delaware proclaimed? Or did Artur Davis look at what the Democrat Party had become, then look at what the Republican Party stands for and decide that he is, after all, a Republican? You decide for yourselves. As for me, I have already decided.

Welcome home, Artur Davis!

House To Vote On ObamaCare Repeal Tomorrow

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2012/07/10

The first vote to repeal ObamaCare since the outrageous Supreme Court ruling upholding it on “taxing non-activity” grounds is scheduled for the US House of Representatives tomorrow. With the majority of voters still in favor of full repeal, rumor has it some Democrats will cross the line and vote with the Republicans to repeal the monstrosity. (HT Hot Air Headlines) What will the US Senate do? The same thing it does with a great many House-passed Bills: refuse to bring it up for a vote, because doing so will only serve to hurt Democrat election chances. Just remember, every Democrat in the Senate at the time ObamaCare came up for a vote the first time around voted in favor of ObamaCare.

I intend to update my ObamaCare Roll Call page with tomorrow’s Roll call. (And I hope that I actually do update it. heh)

It is rare that an action which took place three years prior to an election has such a heavy impact on that election due to the “short attention span” of the American electorate, but these are unique times. Democrats will lose their election bids as a direct result of ObamaCare and the majority desire for its repeal. And the fact that the destructiveness of ObamaCare has remained in the spotlight ever since its anti-American start.

Stay tuned.
