|Subject: national cochair of Obama's campaign four years ago leaves democrats Sun Sep 02, 2012 3:31 pm|| |
http://news.yahoo.com/artur-davis-difference-4-years-makes-224018815--politics.htmlDavis was a national cochair of Obama's campaign four years ago and seconded the then-Illinois senator's nomination at the convention in Denver. On Tuesday night, he almost apologized for getting wrapped up in the historic “hype” of Obama’s first run.
“Maybe the Hollywood stars and the glamour blinded us a little,” Davis said. “You thought it was the glare, some of us thought it was a halo.”
He criticized Obama for “flowery words” and urged the public to “put poetry aside.”
Davis also touched on the racially charged issue of welfare, and Romney’s recent comment that Obama, in allowing states to change work requirements, was trying to “shore up his base.” Davis defended the thrust of recent Romney ads, which independent fact-checkers have said are inaccurate.
“Bill Clinton took on his base and made welfare a thing you had to work for,” Davis said. “This current crowd guts the welfare work requirement in the dead of night and won’t tell the truth about it.”
