Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

I absolutely LOVE "dislikes" to my comments (you know who you are, and whose thrones you sniff). Gruber was/is correct; so, how does it feel to be shafted and ridiculed by the same administration you blindly supported?

"Given the breadth and depth of the irrational opposition to his every word and action," -- Mr. K--

You mean like the "it's all Bush's fault", "Anybody but Bush" AKA Bush Derangement Syndrome folks?

"Bush junior, on the other hand, took the wealth and good will banked by Clinton "

The US was already in an economic downturn during the last 6 month of Clinton's presidency.

Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

"I am sure history will find that President Obama has been remarkably astute and effective"

Effective in creating an unsustainable debt/deficit that we'll have no hope of repaying if it continues unchecked?

Effective in getting our credit downgraded for the first time in history?

Effective in drafting/passing/partially implementing the most over-reaching federal legislation in history based upon lies and the "stupidity" of the easily led and duped?

Effective in overseeing scandals such as Benghazi, F&F, the IRS, the VA, the NSA, the border crisis, etc.?

Effective in being so detached and malleable that our foreign status is absolutely comical?

Effective in having such a poor record that he couldn't even stump for Dems in the mid-terms, when even his absence led to historic losses?

Effective in being perceived at the "worst" contemporary POTUS?

Effective in alienating not only the formerly subservient MSM, but Congressional liberals?

Effective in having absolutely dismal "direction of country", "state of the union" and approval ratings?

Effective at obfuscation when he promised "the most transparent administration ever"?

Effective as a golfer? Even Michael Jordan said he's "shitty"!

You know, Mr. K, you have a point, bravo!

Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

I would not read too much into the latest election. The voter turnout was the worst since 1942. Some of the very same states that voted Republican also voted to raise their minimum wage.

Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

President Obama is not the worst president of the modern era. That distinction belongs to George Bush junior. Given the breadth and depth of the irrational opposition to his every word and action, I am sure history will find that President Obama has been remarkably astute and effective. Bush junior, on the other hand, took the wealth and good will banked by Clinton and squandered them--rather, allowed Dick "deficits don't matter" Cheney to squander them.

Only Carolyn would think a serious spanking is a win.

And I agree with Dave H, she is one of the most hate filled people I have run across here or at the Gazette.

"We won! Big Victory lap for the lefties!"

Really, Carolyn?

http://www.commentarymagazine.com/2014/11/…

The GOP gained House seats, won control of the Senate, and you're still stuck with Hick, Charlie Rangel, Reid, Pelosi, Biden and the "worst" contemporary POTUS ever.

If that equals success, I'm interested in your definition of failure...

Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

I am stewing about nothing, my dear. Having watched your letters and posts here and at the Gazette for quite a long time now, it is quite clear you hate republicans, the devoutly religious, and conservatives, just to name a few. Your letters nearly drip with your hatred and intolerance. Oh, and the NRA actually did quite well on the whole.

uhh...who do you think I might hate Dave H? You sound as though you are stewing...I am relatively sure the NRA was defeated in this election. And I am doing the happy dance! We won! Big Victory lap for the lefties! And the Republicans still own Klingenschmitt! hahahaha!

Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

"The NRA has to figure out why we took back the two seats they hijacked in the recall. "

The NRA did not hijack anything. In fact the NRA had very little to do with the recalls and really wanted nothing to do with them. The NRA only got involved when they realized the recalls stood a very good chance of succeeding. The NRA's history is filled with maneuvers like that.

Regardless, the Dems lost control of the state Senate. And you lost because by and large you fibbed and got caught, went very negative, and harped on one issue. Hell, you would have lost the Governorship if Beauprez had even half the campaign presence Hickenlooper did and as it was it was very close. So, call 1-800-WHAA and ask for some cheese to go with your whine as you stew in your own hatred.

Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

Lamborn is the last person I'd ever accuse of being courageous, he simply hates our freely twice-elected president. Our congressional rep is a bad actor, like the time he used the racist term "tar baby" regarding Obama, did not attend a SOTU speech and many more times. I respect Ralph Palmer for his service, but not Lamborn.

Re: “GOP's post-election challenges, what's wrong with the Indy, and more

Using the term courageous and Lameborn in the same sentence is similar to the other oxymoron, "Military Intelligence". If your (not mine) dear congressman is so courageous, why is it that he's too afraid to debate his opponent? Doesn't like the "uncivil tone", meaning facts about his piss poor attendance record and lack of accessibility might be brought to the public eye? http://www.coloradoindependent.com/149194/…

Also, to straighten the facts, Lameborn urged the generals to resign, not "tell the American people the facts". http://www.coloradoindependent.com/149497/…
Of course, facts get in the way of any argument when they aren't to our liking.

Re: “The long, long campaign; Veteran's Day, 'free thought'; and more

Because "Free Thought Views" is a paid advertisement, I refrained from commenting on the column written by Bill Durland. Since the Indy has seen fit to publish a letter in praise of the column, however, I feel compelled to say I found it to be misinformed, tendentious, and anti-Semitic.

"In recognition of Veterans Day, I wanted to share some facts about the Congressional Medal of Honor," - Charles H. Guy

You mean like the fact that technically it is not the "Congressional Medal of Honor", it is simply the Medal of Honor. The Society, however, is correctly known as the Congressional Medal of Honor Society being as the Society was chartered by Congress.

Re: “'Why I don't vote,' Herpin's progress, labeling GMOs, and more

Father Carmody is disingenuous for bemoaning that "for same-sex unions, the government is lighting fast." Truth is, I see news items on same-sex couples getting married who have waited a lifetime for this right to be theirs as it is for others. Lightning fast? Spare us such spin and sour grapes.

The same-sex marriage issue reminds me of black civil rights, where it took a hundred years from the end of the Civil War for passage of the Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act and other landmark legislation and court decisions (Brown vs Board of Education / Loving vs Virginia) that finally lived up to the Constitution's promise that "...all men are created equal..."
Lightning Fast? Spare us such spin and sour grapes.

Amy Williard.

The recall of Sen. John Morse is just one recent example of what happens when you vote, or don't vote.

Re: “'Why I don't vote,' Herpin's progress, labeling GMOs, and more

Just turn the Senate over to US, and we’ll do the same thing there that we’ve done in the House……Stalemate and Gridlock!! Let’s get NOTHING done for the people who sent us here for this gig with SO many great side benefits: CEO-type pay, full health coverage (even on the job site!), bribes galore from our loving lobbyists, frequent vacations paid for by ‘friends’, cushy retirement plan, etc.

Cory Gardner says we should elect HIM because we hate gridlock SO much? He was part of the gridlock in the House….does he expect us to believe he won’t vote the SAME way if he is promoted to the Senate? Think how embarrassed we will be with a Senator who allies with Ted Cruz!

Last year we never stopped hearing about all that East Coast money pouring into Colorado from ONE guy, but now the Republicans welcome all the anonymous millions flowing in from the Koch Brothers, Karl Rove, U.S Chamber of Commerce, and the NRA. Such hypocrites! Not one of those groups care one whit about what is best for OUR state, or esp. the working class who will suffer at the hands of a Republican takeover of the Senate!

Re: “'Why I don't vote,' Herpin's progress, labeling GMOs, and more

Amy Willard, I hope you will exercise your patriotic duty and educate yourself about the issues.....and vote for the party that has your best interests at heart. I am not always completely happy with the Democratic Party, either, but they are MUCH MORE likely to have OUR best interests at heart. The Republicans would rather see the entire country FAIL if THEY can't be running it!!
Think about getting involved and helping get our system back on track. It does not help to sit on the sidelines.
