Colorado Dems are having a hissy fit. Recall hits the President of the Senate and his colleague.
By the end of the process, so anxious were the opponents of the recall that they felt compelled to rely heavily on Michael Bloomberg, who sent $350,000 to Colorado to fight the threat; members of Obama’s ground team were brought in to boost turnout, and even former president Bill Clinton was wheeled in at the last minute to try to tip the scales. None of it worked. This was the recall that never supposed to happen — let alone be successful.
Not listening to their constituents, arrogance and elitism, They are calling their political demise a case of voter suppression and those horrible Koch brothers. In fact it was 9 men in a chat room, AR15.com, that started the recall ball rolling.
The nine men who set the ball rolling weren’t supposed to be capable of organizing a town hall, let alone taking down the state-senate president. And yet they did it. Victor Head, a plumber who had never been politically active, took down a senator in a district that went Democratic in 2012 by ten points; a group of six concerned men from the AR15.com chat room removed the state’s top-ranking legislator. “We are a quiet people,” recall founder Tim Knight told his victorious friends when the results became known at the Stargazers Theater. “You may be tempted to ignore us. Clearly, that would be a mistake.”
Katherine Herridge has just explained why Nothing has been done to capture or interrogate the attackers of Benghazi. Obama wants to treat Benghazi as a “criminal action” and not a war crime. He doesn’t want to stick them in Gitmo for interrogation. Since those particular jihadists are on the “battlefield”, we have to wait to arrest them. Makes perfect sense in the Obama-era of foreign policy. We hear Kerry talk about BO’s “deep commitment” to foreign policy, actually BO should just be committed. Any institution will suffice as long as he just shuts the hell up.
