“Are you going to keep building your party with Dixiecrats – ex-democrats who think the Democratic Party is too mainstream?”

Too Mainstream? TOO Mainstream? Has this leg-tingler lost his mind? I’m really sure that no one views the democrats as too mainstream. The problem so many Americans are having with the democrats is that they are not even close to mainstream. They have been hijacked by the crazy left marxists and it’s turning off many sensible party members. I believe there will be a dramatic rise in people who identify as independents in the coming year. There are many who simply cannot call them selves Republicans but will not call themselves democrats, any longer.
Obama will leave a legacy of gutting his own party.
“I have become increasingly concerned that the bills and policies pushed by the current Democratic leadership are not good for north Alabama or our nation,” Griffith said during a press conference Tuesday.
“I am announcing today that I’m joining the Republican conference immediately,” he said. “Our nation is at a crossroads and I can no longer align myself with a party that continues to pursue legislation that is bad for our country, hurts our economy, and drives us further and further into debt.”
Let’s hope that what Congressman Griffith is saying, is true and heartfelt.
