Party-switching Rep. Parker Griffith (R-Ala.) continues to bite the hand that once fed him, with an op-ed in the Daily Caller suggesting his old party is filled with a bunch of freedom-hating socialists.
This administration continues to bypass the American spirit as the answer to our recovery and, instead, pushes oppressive regulation, government takeover and gross spending as the way out. The democratic leadership is effectively telling the American people they cannot, and will not, have any part in their own futures.
I rejected that leadership philosophy. The American people have rejected it as well, evidenced by the elections in Virginia, New Jersey and Massachusetts…
The Democratic leadership does not believe that the American people, given the encouragement and freedom, can determine their own destiny. Beginning with cap-and-trade legislation, and culminating in the debacle that is the health care overhaul, the Obama administration has been rabid in its efforts to impose the will of the government on its people.
Griffith has taken up red-meat Republican rhetoric in short order, most recently signing onto a Club for Growth petition to repeal health care reform if it passes, and speaking at the recent March for Life rally in Washington. He’s been a frequent guest on FOX News since the party switch.
But conservatives back home still haven’t warmed up to the new Parker Griffith: He’s still facing two credible primary challengers, and his home county party committee approved a resolution opposing the congressman in the June primary.
