Ed Valenti and his parrot 'Puffy' pose for a photo, Saturday Oct. 6, 2012, in Newtown Pa. A former Republican, Valenti, 53, a social worker, said he has been disillusioned by how far to the right the party has moved. And he is afraid of more cuts to social programs for the poor if Romney is elected. (AP Photo/ Joseph Kaczmarek)
