Skip to comments.Libs in Denial: Hickenlooper says No national message in Colorado gun-control recalls
Posted on 09/15/2013 7:36:28 AM PDT by bestintxas
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper says last weeks victory by gun-rights voters in the states recall elections shouldnt be seen as a litmus test for the rest of the nation or even the rest of the state.
The Democratic governor, appearing on CNNs State of the Union on Sunday, said the recalls of two state lawmakers, both Democrats, who supported gun-control legislation he signed earlier this year were more about local politics.
Im not sure it has a national message or even a statewide message, he said. These are very specific districts.
Asked if the recall indicated a broader unease with the Democratic Partys social agenda, including the support for gay marriage, the governor said thats certainly possible. But I havent felt that.
The governor seemed to take a swipe at New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, who helped fund the anti-recall effort something that might have backfired in Colorado, Mr. Hickenlooper said.
There is a certain resentment. Outside money coming in is generally not welcome [in Colorado], the governor said.

Let the steamrolling in 2014 be a classic one
he’s tellin a hickenlooper
I hope all the RINO’s in the Republican deny this has nay message for them.
That way they will be easier to remove.
If the GOPe had any sense of Patriotism, they would get behind the Conservatives for 2014.
It was “voter repression”! Remember? Us conservatives play hard ball.
Damage Control - trying to maintain control of the message.
"...why you lying Lickenhooper"
So all of the money sent in by outsiders was really just local money for a nothing recall. A recall that has NEVER happened in state history?
He’s deluding himself. But this is great, let it continue. Then the next one will be even more of a kick in the teeth.
LOOK AT THE FLOODS! NOTHING TO SEE IN THE VOTE! LOOK AT THE FLOODS!
“If the GOPe had any sense of Patriotism, they would get behind the Conservatives for 2014.”
I have felt for a long time that the absence of Patriotism in elected politicians is the key element that has changed in our Politicians.
Gone are the days when Democrats would rise above party idealism and take a stand for what is right with America.
Am thinking of the likes of Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman.
Reagan was so liked as he exuded patriotism and not only talked about it, but acted it.
This quality, epitomized by George Washington who refused to be king and instead embraced the foundation of a nation ruled by citizens.
If we could return to electing people who had other than self interests as a priority, we would return to glory.
There is no path to reason with a liberal. Draw your own conclusion on resolving the issues.
We’re going to attack ALL the Anti-gun Democrats in 2013, 2014 and Beyond!..
Left loses: Voter suppression, right-wing money, cheating and fraud, life is unfair.
The 'pubbies will get behind conservatives alright.
With pitchforks in hand.
They dislike democrats but reserve their real hate for conservatives.
He really is a totally dishonest and deceitful demon. This man has no honor or dignity within him.
The bottom line is that they will continue to behave like the arrogant Nazi goons that they are.
