    He says quite clearly that he has problems with Obama. Wow. A spokesperson says he has issues with Romney as well but that would be expected.

    "CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Democratic West Virginia Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin says he won't attend the party's national convention, citing serious problems with President Barack Obama.

    A Tomblin spokesman, Chris Stadelman, said Monday that the governor has serious problems with Republican Mitt Romney, too."


    And he's not alone.

    "Tomlbin isn't alone in sitting this one out — West Virginia's Sen. Joe Manchin and congressman Nick Rahall say they don't plan to attend the convention, either.

    Each of the three faces a Republican opponent in November".

    They will be sorely missed. We need more democrats who are willing to stand up and take the heat. Too bad these guys aren't them.

    Manchin is tracked as a centrist as is Rahall.

    Now you have this gentleman as well declining to attend the convention. Another centrist.

    "Another Democrat facing a close re-election contest is skipping the Democratic National Convention this summer.

    Pennsylvania Rep. Mark Critz will not appear at the gathering of Democrats in Charlotte, N.C., to officially re-nominate Obama for president, Shira Toeplitz of Roll Call reports.
