Harold Ford Jr. Heckled at Netroots Nation Conference

Harold Ford Jr. Heckled at Netroots Nation

HFJ, the leader of the DLC (the Republican wing of the Democratic Party) was heckled at the Netroots Nation conference in Austin during a discussion of FISA, Obama and the Democratic Party. The loudest response came when HFJ praised his former colleagues at the right-wing Fox News network, where he served as a pundit.

He also explained to the conference that sometimes "Democrats" have to take positions that a lot of Democrats don't like to win elections in conservative elections. Ford lost a race for the U.S. Senate in Tennessee in which he ran a campaign that embraced many conservative positions, especially against gay marriage.

Apparently, Harold Ford thinks homophobia is politically expedient!
