JACKSON, MS (WLBT) -
Seven former democrats are now with the ranks of the republican party after making their formal switch Wednesday.
Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said since democrats took control of the White House, more than 50 state and local democrats have moved to the GOP.

Maybe a second Oblama term won't be so bad after all. The entire country would be Republican by 2016.

A "Democrat" in Mississippi might as well be a Republican anyway. They aren't exactly Liberal in the same vein of say a Barney Frank

I think it's one hell of a good idea from the dems. In hillbilly land like Mississippi, unless you have an (R) next to your name, you're not going to win, not to mention the rednecks will vote for anyone just as long as that (R) is there.
Having the democrats sweeping elections from just changing the letter next to their name is fine by me

obama has certainly turned the intelligent away from his brand of thug democracy. Only the lunatic fringe left and stupid will vote for him again.

Yes. Your party has been hi-jacked by the radical Progressive/Socialists. The good guys are waking up and jumping ship.

Welcome aboard the S.S. Sanity aka Republican Partisanship!

Most of Massachusetts tends to be less liberal than Barney Frank, the only reason he kept winning was his distict was insanly Gerrymandered to Include cities 50 miles from eachother, and it was 1 town wide in parts.

If this was going on in swing areas than perhaps the GOP might be on to something, but its not....
