According to this article, Colorado Governor Democrat John Hickenlooper he is telling Michael Bloomberg to stay out of Colorado politics on the gun control issue. Strange, he seemed all for Bloomberg’s help before citizens tossed out 2 of his Democrat Senators in a special election. Now another of his Senators is facing a fresh recall effort. If this trend keeps up the Democrats will lose control of the Colorado Senate.
This is actually a hilarious comedy playing out. First, Hickenlooper makes it sound like Nanny Bloomberg came into Colorado and did all of this by himself. Did he develop amnesia about the fact HE SIGNED THE GUN CONTROL BILLS INTO LAW!!! It was at his behest that the state legislature even took up the issue.
With prompting from Obama and money from Nanny Bloomberg new gun control was shoved down the throats of Colorado citizens. Obama believed as did Nanny Bloomberg that if they could prove a pro-gun western state with a long and rich firearms tradition could pass gun control without any backlash that it could be done anywhere. They hoped to prove the NRA was irrelevant in today’s political climate.
How did that work out for you?
This guy wants to blame Bloomberg for this whole issue going south on him, but he seems to forget he had the final say. He could have vetoed the bill, but he didn’t. He could push to undo it right now, which might calm the anger of his constituents, but he seems to have no interest in that either. Basically he wants the bleeding to stop and figures if he tells Nanny Bloomberg to buzz off that this will will cause the citizens to calm down. I doubt that very much.
Too little too late pal. You pissed on the wrong group this time. You took freedoms away from a group who is absolutely relentless in making you pay a political price and a group that has a looooong memory.
A wise man once said these enlightening words when he found himself in a similar predicament…
