Skip to comments.The Colorado Model & The Left’s Stratagem For Turning Red States to Blue
Posted on 12/28/2011 12:58:35 PM PST by thecodont
Although its being deployed in several states like Florida, Georgia, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and others, there are still many who have never heard of the Colorado Model. Whats worse, despite all the Lefts bemoaning of the vast right wing conspiracy, Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, or whatever enemy they can dream up, there is still nothing like the Colorado Model on the Right.
In sum, the Colorado Model is one of the Lefts most effective stratagems that was built to turn red states into blue states in a very short period (with the exception, perhaps, of the 2010 election cycle). When combined with the tactics of Saul Alinsky and his disciples, the Colorado Model is akin to a Soviet platoon armed with AK-47s mowing down a militia armed with slingshots. According to a 2008 expose in the Weekly Standard, in 2004 and 2006 routed Republicans, capturing the governorship, both houses of the state legislature, a U.S. Senate seat, and two U.S. House seats.
Conceived by four rich liberals, the Colorado Model is a fairly simple strategy:
Eric OKeefe, chairman of the conservative Sam Adams Alliance in Chicago, says there are seven capacities that are required to drive a successful political strategy and keep it on offense:  the capacity to generate intellectual ammunition,  to pursue investigations,  to mobilize for elections,  to fight media bias,  to pursue strategic litigation,  to train new leaders, and  to sustain a presence in the new media. Colorado liberals have now created institutions that possess all seven capacities. By working together, they generate political noise and attract press coverage. Explains Caldara, Build an echo chamber and the media laps it up.

It worked great during the 2010 midterms. /s
Colors are backwards. Leftists are Reds.
Didn't help that the tea party played right into their hands by saddling us with some bad candidates, including the turkey at the top of the ticket who barely got 10% of the vote.
That's the purpose of Section 8; to import Eric Holder's people into GOP strongholds and overwhelm the conservative vote.
The Colorado model is a guy named Hickenlooper. Former mayor of Denver, former saloon owner, former geologist. And a Democrat. Now he’s governor.
He’s liked by independents and I can see why.
If the Dems have more like him, good for them, but this does not translate to a blue Colorado in the 2012 general.
