Democrats Switch to Republicans 92%
SINCE 2008! …Politicians are jumping ship in the Democrat Party; or should I say dingy. You could say the Democrat Platform is springing a lot of leaks. Some are slapping their knee and saying that’s a “Hum Dingy.” In 2010 and 2011, the numbers are staggering. I am not kicking butts but I am taking names. As far as I know, the following information is pretty close; and I give it a margin of error of Zero because it ain’t no survey. Of all those political figures who switched parties, only 8% of them switched from the Democrat to Republican Party. That leaves 92% of those switching parties were democrats becoming Republicans. Why on earth would they do that? Don’t these people realize that President Obama and the Democrat Party are going to save the world as we know it? (That’s according to the Botox lady, Madam Pelosi, with a “straight face”).
According to their finely tuned political handheld Global Positioning System (GPS), their Anemometer (Wind speed indicator) and their stinky, Hanes wind socks; the politicians determine with extreme accuracy the location on earth that has the most ideal wind speed and direction to maximize favorable votes. They merely switch parties when they think they can get more votes. Now that is a novel idea.Here is a list of all those democrats switching to the Republican party. I added a really short list of all the republicans who went the other way; or is that the wrong way.
