“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.”
This is what we often call, “buyer’s remorse.” Only in this case it’s a black Democrat who unfortunately bought all of Obama’s incredibly cynical lies. Because Barack Obama has done more to create and then exploit racial tension and done more to “fundamentally transform America” in an incredibly radical leftist direction than any American president in history bar none.
At least Artur Davis woke up and smelled reality – and God bless anybody who joins him:

Davis, who is black, may be best known for seconding Obama’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention in 2008, when he served as an Obama campaign co-chairman. 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.
In 2010, Davis made an unsuccessful bid for governor of Alabama. In May he announced he was switching to the GOP, leaving the door open to a future political bid as a Republican.
Davis said in June that he thinks his one time political party was becoming 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 Romney campaign says Davis will team up with Virginia GOP Victory Chairman Pete Snyder and a local business owner at an event in Arlington.
Buzz Feed was first to report on the Davis appearance at the Romney campaign event.
