As we wake up this morning, the Colorado Senate Democrat caucus is light by 2 Jackasses.
Democrats rarely concern themselves with consent of the governed. They blithely lie right through their teeth during election season, then do what they want. They rarely face a day of reckoning.
In Colorado however, yesterday was that day. Earlier this year, the State legislature and governor used the occasion of the Newtown massacre (never let a crisis go to waste) to jam through strict gun-grabbing legislation with the full knowledge that the citizens of Colorado would hate it. Hey who cares, we’ll just lie to them during the next election season, smear opponents, organize, cheat, rely on the LeftMedia to carry our water, and all will be well.
This time, they paid for their betrayal
Given the nature of Democrat rule in recent years, Colorado citizens were out of patience. They organized recall petitions, and got themselves a recall election against the Colorado Senate President, John Morse, who led the gun-grabbing effort. For fun, they also went after Senator Angela Giron.
Morse – GONE!
Giron – GONE!
Giron represented (so to speak) the Pueblo area. Nobody remembers last time this area was represented by a Republican. Governor John Hickenlooper, once thought unbeatable in 2014, has ratings falling through the floor and is now vulnerable.
Remember how Colorado turned blue
In sum, this formerly solid-red state was bought and paid for by rich fat-cat Democrats (see a book called The Blueprint: How the Democrats Won Colorado for how it was done). From 2002-2012, a specific, cynical, and highly effective money-paved astroturf campaign took Colorado. (And they want to try it in Texas, see hashtag #TurnTexasBlue to follow the nuts).
Only one problem. The people of Colorado have figured out what happened. And down in their hearts, they’re not leftists.
