Oh,Lord, anyone but Buck! That man is an idiot. He snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by constantly sticking BOTH size 12 cowboy boots in his mouth. The Buck mouth-boot connection was magnetic: as soon as someone would yank the boots out, why they’d fly right back into his mouth like neither were attached to his brain, the mouth of course DEFINITELY NOT being attached to his brain.
The fool would NOT stay on message (assuming he even knew what that meant). Instead of giving five or six pat answers to every question no matter what the question like Scott Brown did in Massachusetts, Buck thought he was smart enough to play the reporter’s gottcha game and got clobbered, because guess what, Buck ain’t all that smart.
I gave the guy a $1000.00 because it was such a sure win. But he blew it. SURELY the GOP can come up with a better person than Buck to beat Udall.

For some reasons, our candidates are really good at this. Go back to the 2012 cycle and there was Richard Mourdock in Indiana and Todd Akin in Missouri.
Both of them simply had to keep their mouths shut and stay to the script - but they couldn’t or wouldn’t. We pretty much had both of these seats nailed down before each of them opened their mouths.
I gave money to Mourdock too.
You are so right. He may have won in 2010 had he not taken David Gregory’s bait about whether homosexuality is a choice. But he wasn’t bright enough to turn the question into an opportunity to go after the Democrats by saying “David, this isn’t what the voters of Colorado are voting on in November or what they’re concerned with. They’re worried about keeping their jobs if they have one, or finding one if they don’t. Coloradans are worried about what will become of their healthcare under Obamacare and their kids having to pick up the tab for this and so much other wasteful deficit spending coming out of the Obama White House and Pelosi/Reid Congress. These are the things that are driving Coloradans, not speculation about homosexuality.” Had he said that it would have been a slam dunk and he’d probably have won. That he wasn’t smart enough to know how to handle the media and how to not fall prey to their snares tells me he’s not ready for prime time—then or now. The fact is, much like where I live in California, Colorado has no decent GOP candidates. Sad.
