Dave Anderson understood this.
He tried to look like a conservative, without embracing conservative values.
How many conservative voters were fooled ?
You may not like it, Dems, but most of the folks who register and vote here are conservative.
I notice that the General does not say where he stands on the very issues that define the race in this District -
homosexual marriage, abortion, Amendment 2 gun rights, legal MJ, freedom of religion, and such.
Instead, he imagines that the city has changed to be more like him.
Jay Fawcett also had polls showing that a majority of Progressives would vote for him. And they did. But they are few in the District.
In 2004, The Dem CD Chair put his name on the ballot to keep a Conservative Dem Candidate off it.
In 2006, Jay spanked a conservative Dem candidate at the district assembly in Greeley.
In 2008, Hal ran as a mainstream Democrat.
In 2010, the Dems ran a vanity candidate to prevent the anti-Lamborn vote from unifying behind a libertarian or constitution party candidate.
In 2012, Dem Party leaders were helping Dave Anderson on the sly (e.g., Christy.)
The local Democratic party understands that their only chance of winning lies with running a conservative Dem. But they fear that, if a conservative Dem wins, then the local party officials will have to adapt out of their comfort zones.
Better to lose every 2 years.
If the General wants to win, he needs to quit reading his own interpretations of slanted polls, and remake himself as someone representative of the District.
Lamborn is vulnerable, but only to another conservative, regardless of party.
the older I get, the less I trust our courts.
Sometimes Decisions are based on the law and facts, and sometimes it all depends on who owes who a favor.
Don't know which is the case here - maybe the Appeals Court is packed with Republicans, or folks who were born in P-town and couldn't wait to leave, or maybe the Judges did their level best to render a fair decision.
But one thing is clear about Pueblo fighting SDS - they have gotten so accustomed to using our water that they now seem to think it is theirs.
Next time a Pueblo politician sues to stop the project, CSU should turn off the trans-mountain diversion and let our water flow down the fryingpan to the roaring fork and into the Colorado.
See how they like them apples.
I'd like to contribute to his legal defense.
Where can I send a check ?
Folks, if you posted anti-GI hate here, please remove the "I support the troops" bumper sticker.
I've met John Morse, before he was a big shot, and I like him.
I'm not so sure his legislative efforts to restrict gun ownership are the best for the state, but I'm sure he believes in what he is doing.
Let's have the recall and let him make his case - again.
what's that daily paper you mentioned ?
The teaser said "L-word." So, what's lesbian about Drake power plant ?
And the Sierra Club isn't far removed from Nature Conservancy. They are the "Bain Capital" or "Operation Push" of enviromentalism. They are really looking for a payoff, not enforcement action.
