Lol! I realize it's still the middle of the night but the lefty political sites are strangely silent about this story. I went over to the hill.com to rub the gun grabbers face in it and...guess what...not even a story up to comment on! (Considering thehill.com bills itself as the nations premier political website...)

“Morse was an appealing target for a recall because he narrowly won re-election in 2010.”

This is flat wrong. After his re-election in 2010, we had redistricting in CO and his district boundaries changed. It is now regarded as a safe dem district. To illustrate, Obama won Morse’ district by 20%.

The recalls for both Morse and Giron were both quixotic efforts with a near miraculous end. Both districts have lopsided dem registration and we were outspent 7-1. There was a full-court dem GOTV effort and blanket radio and TV commercials. There is NO WAY we should have won those races. But we did.

I am worried about Virginia which is much more important that 2 state politicians. I hope we can keep Virginia red in November. I don’t like our candidate but we MUST stop the Democrats thinking they are inevitable. Congrats to Colorado!

In an honest election, Morse would have lost 75% to 25%. As it was, he nearly won. The reason being the college kids committing voter fraud by the backpacks full .

Someone should be going through the dorms at Colorado College as I type this with a 1,000 feet of rope cut into 7 ft lengths and stringing the bastards up.

It’s got me shaken up.

6 months following the defeat of Ken Buck for US Senate ( he lost by about a 1,000 votes)The CO SOS issued a report showing 5,000 illegals voted in that election in that district. No arrests, prosecutions, or warnings were issued. Business as usual.

Had this been a mail in ballot election, yesterday would have be 180 degrees different.

Yesterday was the last non-mail-in-ballot in CO.

I doubt this win will ever happen again in my lifetime.

Both Morse and Giron have been successfully recalled?

Whoa... Congratulations, Colorado!!!

Is there any hope that CO can be turned back into a Red State, as it was a mere 11 or so years ago?

Late last night I went around the dial trying to find a network reporting on the recall. The only channel with a live report was AL JAZEERA American. I like those guys more all the time because they report on stuff that the rest can’t be bothered with.-—and the recall was looking good then.

"Well that so called Conservative District elected him in the first place, so it can’t be all that Conservative."

CO Springs is generally conservative on some issues (anti-labor union except for teachers and public employees, religious but "progressive"/romantic) but pretty far to the left on certain other issues (feminism, environmentalism, big government, other regulatory,...). Many in Pueblo are Democrats on social issues and labor/welfare, but they tend to be more against environmentalism, against animal "rights" issues and much more in favor of uranium mining and other production on the Range).

Really, both political parties are influenced by romanticist/"progressive" (feminist, homosexualist, fond of foreign interests) sentiments while being anti-labor, divisive, etc.

DWS: Colorado Senators Were Only Recalled Because of Voter Suppression, Or Something

From the statement released by Debbie Wasserman Schultz:

”The recall elections in Colorado were defined by the vast array of obstacles that special interests threw in the way of voters for the purpose of reversing the will of the legislature and the people. This was voter suppression, pure and simple.

“Colorado voters are used to casting their ballots by mail, but because of lawsuits filed by opponents of common sense gun reform, voters were not mailed their ballots in this election. Those who intended to vote in person did not learn their polling locations until less than two weeks before Election Day. Tuesday’s low turnout was a result of efforts by the NRA, the Koch brothers and other right wing groups who know that when more people vote, Democrats win..."

Same old crybaby propaganda from the 'Rats when they lose!

Voter suppression? Are you kidding, Debbie? The only suppression was suppressing some of the fraudsters, by forcing most voters to turn out in person in their local election precincts, just as Americans have done since the founding of the Republic. The mail-in vote regimen she embraces is a boon to the 'Rat fraud schemes, which is precisely why she advocates it.

Efforts by the NRA and the Koch brothers? Yep, two of the left's favorite whipping boys. Turns out that gun control groups, led by Bloomberg's Mayors Against Gun Violence, outspent the pro-recall groups by about 8 to 1 on these special elections, from what I've heard. Naturally, Debbie wouldn't tell you that.

She also thinks it's axiomatic that "when more people vote, Democrats win." Maybe she means that when more dead, demented, out of district, and other ineligible individuals are voted for by 'Rat operatives (including even dogs and cats), Democrats win. That would be a lot more accurate. Of course, neither she nor any other currently prominent Democrat would ever admit that electoral fraud or cheating exists, since the overwhelming percentage of such crimes are committed by her political soulmates.

“She also thinks it’s axiomatic that ‘when more people vote, Democrats win.’”

If you study voting patterns, it is a fact more Democrats vote in presidential elections than in off year elections or special elections and that always helps Republican who tend to vote every time there is an election for anything. I used to watch voting patterns in Texas in order to plan how to win elections, and those were the facts. So, she was partially right but mostly wrong - there will be more Democrats voting in presidential elections but not this recall election.

...it is a fact more Democrats vote in presidential elections than in off year elections or special elections and that always helps Republican who tend to vote every time there is an election for anything.

Yes, I would agree that it is axiomatic that more people vote in presidential elections than off year elections, largely because presidential elections attract far more media coverage and the candidates are better known to the public.

But there is no hard and fast rule that more people voting (which, in Wasserman-Schultz's thinking, includes those legally ineligible to vote and those voted for by Dem hacks or even those no longer alive) in presidential elections necessarily means 'Rat success in presidential elections. Nor do less people voting in the official tallies necessarily mean Republican success in presidential elections. I don't think that there is much of a statistical correlation between official voter turnout as a percentage of the eligible population in presidential elections, on the one hand, and percentage of the popular vote going to the Dem candidate, on the other, especially when looked at over a very long period of time, say 100 years.

I would agree that maybe in recent years, there has emerged awareness of a new category of "low information voter" that might tend to vote only in presidential elections and tend to vote for the 'Rats, which is maybe what Wasserman Schultz has in mind. Then again, how many of them actually vote of their own volition and how many of them are voting as they are told or are voted for by Dem operatives is a question that Debbie and friends will avoid like the plague.

And of course being slack-jawed cretins, two weeks was simply not enough time for your average Colorado-an to figure out where to vote. This is pathetic. It’s not even propaganda. Was voter turnout even noticeably lower than the last recall election in Colorado?
