Thank goodness more and more democrats are stepping up and saying American comes before party. One example is Barney Bishop, the former Executive Director of the Florida Democratic Party, has written an article detailing why he can not support Barack Obama over Mitt Romney. Bishop had this to say on the president’s policies in an op-ed posted at sunshinestatenews.com:
In every challenge that faces our nation, Obama sees a solution that can only come with another government-spending program. He fails to harness the ingenuity of entrepreneurs; instead he actually places obstacles, like burdensome regulation, in front of their path to progress.
Bishop has encouraged other Democrats to join him in his support for Romney, claiming, “It’s just too important for the nation to let party labels cloud the clear choice we have this election.”
