A New York Times blogger discovers the news is not good for John McCain in Colorado Springs, where a lifelong Republican on the city council says she is abandoning her partys nominee to vote for Barack Obama this year. Further endangering McCains prospects in Colorados largest Republican stronghold, the pastor who replaced former GOP heavyweight Ted Haggard leading one of the citys largest mega-churches is staying on the sidelines, urging his flock to vote for any political party.
Seattle-based Timothy Egan visited Colorado Springs, dubbed the Vatican of evangelical political power, after the second presidential debate and comes to one conclusion: My friends: its not good for Senator McCain.

Gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and questioning people continue to face unfair discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation. Citizens Project believes the principle that all men are created equal as stated in the U.S. Constitution will never be faithfully upheld while it remains legal to discriminate against people because of who they are. Objections to GLBT civil rights come from religious doctrine, and our nation is founded on laws and principles, not on any particular religious faith.
Oh no ! the worlds going to end.
As a citizen of Colorado Springs, let me say that the chances of this having ANY impact on the election is close to zero.
This is not bad news but good news!!! Get the cancerous lefties out of our party now!!!
Thanks for doing the due diligence in looking her up.
HA HA! Debunked! That’s why I love the FR!
oh boy, a councilman from small Mid-Western state has decided to vote for Obama. I guess that’s it. May as well throw in the towel and give up.
I’ve found lots of “life long conservatives” who are abandoning McCain’s “tax raising”, “big government” policies in favor of Obama’s “tax cutting”, “smaller government” approach.
Somehow I don’t believe them....
Thanks for clarifying what I suspected.
Whoop tee doo. Who cares? Never heard of her.
good news in MN:)
Yeah right. Oh did I ever tell you that I’m a long time Democrat, but I’m thinking of voting republican because I don’t trust Obama?
El Paso County is home to Colorado Springs and will overwhelmingly go for McCain-Palin. In the 65% range.
Just for the record, the Independent newspaper is a liberal rag given away for free and best used as bird cage liner.
The Independent is the far to the left rag in Colorado Springs. They are dreaming.
McCain has not been able to frame, in clear and simple terms, how conservative ideals (particularly on economics and foreign policy) stave off the types of problems we are seeing and how ideals such as those espoused by Obama led to our present difficulties at home and abroad. Palin can do it, but she has not had enough time to learn the verbal ropes. She is clear, but she does not speak with the authority of a Reagan or a Goldwater.
I, myself, believe that they ought to put Palin as the lead figure in commercials and turn it into a Palin vs. Obama battle. We would still put the man with experience in office and who would save our independence and our constitution.
But lacking this type of clarity, RINOs are going to be free to forsake their conservative constituents.
hahahah! Colorda springs? They had to look really hard to find someone to interview for this puff piece.
“A New York Times blogger discovers...”
Well...that says it all. This story is bunk, nothing more that a weak attempt at a scare tactic. Colorado Springs will hold up its end of the conservative vote.
And, you can take that to the bank.
Wow - they found TWO whole people in Colorado Springs who don’t support McCain - Blow the trumpets! ( I just got back from there, beautiful place)
Liberal talking point#2 Start every sentence of a political nature with: “Even though I am a LIFELONG Republican I won’t be supporting my party because.....”
I don't know. I'm not familiar with Colorado Springs.
