Great news! Way to go CO voters!!!

I’m so glad that you guys shoved Morse and Giron out the door for passing their stupid “gun control” laws against the will of CO citizens.

A fair warning to any other politician that dares to violate the 2nd Amendment...

Maybe we can vote out some top RINO’s in 2014 then

Exactly my thought. I'm hoping this portends an amazing turn-around in the U.S. Congress next year.

it's not over, but it's a good start.

It is the first pause in the hemorrhaging in Colorado. I hope that it is the beginning of a direction change in Colorado. The conservatives are beginning to get animated and the Dems are vulnerable. The Pueblo win is huge! If a democrat can lose there, nowhere but Denver and Boulder is sanctuary for them.

Good comments; you're definitely paying attention. I wish that I could be more hopeful about Colorado after this victory. I lived there for more than a decade and am familiar with the politics of the state.

The victory in Pueblo is great and will probably dissuade the Left from pushing any more gun control nationally for some time. On the other hand, the vote in Colorado Springs is too close for comfort; 343 votes should have been 2000. Just the same, we'll take what we can get.

To the broader picture... If Colorado were actually trending Conservative, American, Constitutional; then, Hickenlooper would never have been elected Governor.

A 2nd Amendment victory is good but it is, in my opinion, the most solid political issue that the Right has. This is so because everyone from the mightiest CEO to the littlest man on the street gets the 2nd Amendment - a man with a gun has power - no more is needed; it's simple; and no amount of propagandizing can alter that simple understanding of that simple truth.

Since the little guy understands the 2nd Amendment, a victory at the ballot box is not too surprising and it's certainly good to go 2-0 rather than 1-1. But, the little guy does not understand the other issues that confront us, and here, we are in trouble.

Colorado, in particular, has taken in many immigrants, legal and illegal, and they overwhelmingly vote Left. The state has also taken in many migrants from places such as CA and NY; and they vote Left. There are some wonderful patriots in Colorado fighting the good fight, but, I'm concerned for the future; I hope that I'm wrong.

It would be curious to find out the last time that Pueblo County sent a Republican Senator to Denver. It’s quite possible not since the 1920s.

“FAMOUS WAR OF 1812 QUOTE:
“We have met the enemy and they are ours.”
Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry (1785-1819)
American Navy officer
The immortal message Perry sent on September 10, 1813 to U.S. General William Henry Harrison about the Battle of Lake Erie. That day, American ships under Perry’s command defeated a British naval squadron and captured all of the British ships. After the battle, Perry scrawled a brief report to Harrison on the back of an envelope. It said: “Dear General: We have met the enemy and they are ours. Two ships, two brigs, one schooner and one sloop. Yours with great respect and esteem, O.H. Perry.” The first sentence became one of the most famous U.S. Navy quotations in history.”

200 years ago TODAY. Perry lost his flagship but won the battle of Lake Erie.

Give us some sound tomorrow, boys. THAT enemy in toto is ours, too.

“This will flop the balance in the Colorado Senate to Republican by one seat, which means R’s will control all the committees.”

Unfortunately not. Before the recall 20-15. After, 18-17.

But what this means is that the next legislative session will be sweet moderation from the dems. Without a margin, they cannot protect vulnerable dems from having to cast hard votes on controversial measures and 2014 is coming. So we won’t see many controversial measures from a very radical Colorado dem controlled senate.

“I am not surprised with Morse getting recalled. Colorado Springs is a conservative area. But, Pueblo???”

Actually, both districts were won by Obama by 20+ points in 2012. They are both SAFE or ULTRA-SAFE dem districts.

I think the difference in the recall margins is that Morse race was the more important and he got a lot more money from Bloomberg et al. He was the Senate president. Two of the reasons he was chosen was he was in a safe district and term-limited, hence, the dems thought he was immune to voter pressure when he acted like an a$$hole. So he bacame a public face for the gun grabbers.

Giron was chair of the “kill” committee, where Republican bills are sent by leadership to die. She was there because dems though she could vote to kill popular Republican bills because she too was in a safe district. In her district, the swing was 32% from Obama’s margin to her loss. Ouch.

Recall is effective immediately. So both are out of office as of about 10 pm this evening. Dems still hold a one seat majority in the Senate and will have to select a new Senate President and a new chair for the kill committee.

I dislike Windflier, but your comment is misplaced. He is not talking about Boehner (GOPe-OH). He is talking about Joe Straus (”R” but really Dem Lite), Speaker of the House for the state government of Texas.

THE issue for 2014 just might be Second Amendment preservation.

I have a lot of gut feels about politics and my ones for 2012 were all wrong, but IMHO I agree and go one step further it IS the issue in 2014, Obama will be totally unfeathered if he gets the House and will pass Draconian Gun Control Legislation. It is the metaphorical last stand for the 2nd admendment, and quite frankly Boehner and McConnell are no longer up for the job of saving or growing their respective bodies. We will have to drag their sorry @$$es across the line one more time like we did in 2010, and that makes me want to scream...

I think the GOP did target a couple of more district, but failed to get enough signatures to get the recalls on the ballot.

Huge wins. Much has been said about Giron’s Pueblo-based SD being so Democrat, but it also has a lot of pro-gun Democrats. And I believe that Morse’s Colorado Springs SD was only slightly GOP-leaning when Morse was elected in 2006 and 2010, and it had more urban Democrats; it may have been made more Democrat in 2011 redistricting, but I’m not sure which district lines were used (in WI recalls they used the lines for the recalled senators’ prior election, but I don’t know how CO does it).

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 will ever happen again in my lifetime.

I don't think that even most conservatives understand how massive and corrupt Dem voter fraud is in this country - the magnitude is unprecedented in this day. Morse likely did lose by 2,000+ votes, but, in the victory, the election won't be investigated.

Every swing state "went" for Obama last year. Don't tell me that was a true election, especially considering the multitude of irregularities documented. Don't expect active duty deployed military to ever vote again.

Not necessarily. I think privacy rights fall into the same category. For whatever reason, liberals don’t like it when the government spies on them. It’s a shame that cognitive dissonance prevents that sentiment from spreading to other areas of their lives, but it’s good to know that we aren’t alone in detesting the NSA.

I’m hoping the bikers in DC make it WELL known that Americans are livid over the games that whole city is playing rather than reaching answers about the deaths of the Benghazi 4. They deserve better than that. The whistleblowers deserve protection. The witnesses deserve to be heard. And those who obstruct.... well, we all know what they deserve. And hopefully they will know soon too.

I think it would probably take a Constitutional amendment first...

But it’s what we need. Clearly the political leadership is poo-poohing the importance of their responsibility to check and balance. We have to have a way to go around them, or there won’t be any accountability and there WILL continue to be absolute corruption.

How does the Constitutional amendment process get started?

This is a big event in the political change taking place between the 2012 and 2014 elections. As I have stated previously, the R party is casting off conservatives and genuflecting before the President and the D party. Now they are being given a piece of strong evidence that what they read and hear inside the DC beltway may not represent the reality outside the beltway. The R party is running from conservatives who are growing in strength and popularity. The R party is running into an empty field and will have to scramble to catch up.

I had the self control to not rain on your parade last night but I cant forever.

This is the second term off year election period so things should be going wrong for Obama, AND those against his party (in GOP ) should be more motivated than those in his party(Dems) .

2005 to 2006 with GWB perfect example. Second term midterm blues.

All the GOP can do is f.. this up, otherwise its cake.

This is a really good sign. Colorado Springs is strongly conservative as a whole, but it has liberal neighborhoods and most of them are in the district John Morse used to represent. Faux moderate Hickenlooper better watch out.

Also, Angela Giron won’t be running for Congress now.
