Stephanie Cutter, deputy campaign manager for President Barack Obama, on Wednesday said the speech at the Republican National Convention by apostate Democrat Artur Davis was nothing more than an expedient play.
"Well, I think last night's speech by Artur Davis was more about Artur Davis than about President Obama or about this country," Cutter told MSNBC's Chuck Todd. "He clearly has some future political ambitions and he has calculated this to give him a better shot at being re-elected. So I'll just leave it at that."
Davis bolted the Democratic Party earlier this year. His speech at the RNC last night was four years removed from his appearance at the 2008 Democratic National Convention, when he nominated Obama.
