RNC picks Paul-bashing Democrat Artur Davis to speak at conventionSubmitted by Lana Lee on Fri, 08/17/2012 - 00:00
The GOP has picked former Democratic Congressman Artur Davis, who only left the party in May of this year, to be one of its keynote speakers in Tampa.(http://blog.al.com/sweethome/2012/08/alabama_republicans_emb...)
Artur Davis has publicly bashed Ron Paul in the past, calling him " as bad on foreign policy as he could possibly be". (http://www.politico.com/arena/archive/ron-paul-a-dangerous-m...)
Awfully hypocritical of them, especially since during the primary season they were attacking us Paul supporters over the fact that a lot of us were "Blue Republicans" (i. e., former Democrats who endorsed Obama in '08 and Paul in '12). They claimed that made us "unworthy" to represent the GOP as delegates and that we weren't real Republicans. And then the GOP establishment turns around and does this? Unreal. Looks like from the perspective of the GOP establishment, it really doesn't matter whether you were a Democrat in 2008, as long as you bash Paul loud enough!
Who picks these speakers, anyway? Shouldn't we (i. e., the delegates) have any say in who gets to speak?
