    This is huge huge news. He left the Dems in December and only registered as an Independent, but now he's gone Republican.

    Now he is registering in Virginia and has made clear he is now a Republican.

    His dramatic move comes after Mayor Cory Booker of New Jersey, another prominent Democrat identified along with Obama and Davis as part of a new wave of black politicians, slammed the Obama campaign attacks on Mitt Romney’s Bain Capital record as ‘nauseating’.

    AND THIS

    In a blog post on Tuesday, he said he was switching his voter registration to Virginia.

    In his blog, he took aim at Obama’s agenda and his failure to deliver: ‘I have regularly criticised an agenda that would punish businesses and job creators with more taxes just as they are trying to thrive again.

    ‘I have taken issue with an administration that has lapsed into a bloc by bloc appeal to group grievances when the country is already too fractured: frankly, the symbolism of Barack Obama winning has not given us the substance of a united country.

    Yikes I didn't see the others. Thanks for the heads up. I'll let mine fall off the page.
