And again another phony lifelong Republican

This time it's Ohio State University Associate Registrar Jack Miner.

Over at the Irregular Times blog, Jim, an obama supporter recorded the following speech from Jim Miner:


Most of you know me because of Ohio State, but a lot of you also know me because I’ve been a lifelong Republican. I’ve been pretty active over the years for the Republican Party, enough said. In this election, my family, my community and the nation can’t afford four more years of the same thing.

So this is the year that I know I’m heading out of the party and I’m supporting Obama. That’s become even more clear the past couple of days where I’m almost embarrassed to say I that used to be a Republican based on the ticket they’ve put together. So if you think about not just a heartbeat, but — not a strong heartbeat away from the presidency, we can’t afford to have someone who’s not strong in foreign relations, who’s not strong with domestic policy, and really has no experience. We can’t afford the Republicans.


Well, there was that red flag again. The phrase "lifelong republican". All I had to do was do a little search in the Ohio voter registration records which reveals he's currentlly a registered Democrat, and yes has voted as a Republican, but also has voted as a Dem a couple of times already (plus has donated 250 bucks to the Hillary Clinton Presidential campaign back in March 2008).

"become even more clear the past couple of days where I’m almost embarrassed to say I that used to be a Republican based on the ticket they’ve put together."


So this is a recent decision, Mr. Miner?

Here are the elections he has voted in so far:

Voting History
2008 PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY
2007 NOV GENERAL
2006 NOV GENERAL
2006 MAY PRIMARY
2005 NOV GENERAL
2005 MAY PRIMARY
2004 GEN PRESIDENTIAL
2004 MAR PRIMARY
2003 NOV GENERAL
2002 NOV GENERAL
2002 MAY PRIMARY
2001 NOV GENERAL
2000 NOV GENERAL
2000 MAR PRIMARY


(the downloadable online Ohio voting records goes back to only 2000. So I do not know of his voting history before then)

Here is how he voted in those elections:

R,X,,X,D,X,,X,R,X,,R,X,,R,X,,,X,,D

The first "R" he voted as was in the March 2000 primarary. and so on down the line. I do not know what the "X" stands for. (unafilliated? Independent? Didnt vote at all?). Nor do I know what the extra commas are for. Perhaps he skipped over voting in an election? This is kind of hard to decipher, but what is clear is that he has voted Dem before. So its laughable to listen to him say "this is the year that I know I’m heading out of the party", when its obvious he has "headed out of" the party before. And twice as laughable for him to refer to himself as a lifelong Republican. This is no "lifelong Republican".

Over at the Irregular Times, the poster "Jim" who recorded the audio and posted it at IT, ends his post with this:

Lifelong Republicans have had enough.


Yeah, what we have had enough of is the Obama supporting phony baloney "lifelong Republicans". Would it kill them to stop pretending to be something they are not? And to just come out and say "I'm a Democrat and I'm supporting Barack Obama?". To be honest with themselves and the rest of the world?
