Details, details

Polis announced the "details" of his health care proposal - and by "details" I mean "lack of details." Jefferson County has eliminated the business personal property tax and will now have a comparative advantage to all surrounding counties - the next question is how soon others follow suit? Robin Wise makes a salient case against 112.

Dummy events

Maybe to try to muddy the waters on exactly who is or is not showing up to meet their potential constituents: Democrats have now taken to creating dummy events and labeling them "townhalls" in order to accuse their opponents of not showing up. Well, this is a horrifying squatter story.  Planning on renting out your

I’ll see you in court

The Colorado Springs Gazette called it - we need an AG who has actually tried cases in court - preferably, many cases. Diane Mitsch Bush says she hasn't yet taken a position on Jordan Cove, a major issue on the west slope . . . the place she's running to represent. Sandy Tan will step in as

Jared Polis came out with the first candidate-run negative ad of the gubernatorial general. And it's already being called "misleading." Hillary Clinton is coming to town for the Democrat's coordinated campaign. Oh, joy. Principles That Matter has a policy conference call this afternoon - call in if you have a few minutes.

Where does Jared Polis stand on the water issue? We can't really tell, and think that's a problem. Sign the petition to ask for a clear water policy.  In addition to Jared Polis not making it to Club 20, neither did Kerry Donovan? That's bad. It's funny that Sen. Bennet is acting like he was ever considering voting

The big news this weekend was the Club 20 debates. Walker Stapleton showed up alone and won the day. What exactly WAS Jared Polis doing? (A little less than) two months to go. We knew there were all kinds of ridiculous spending at waste at the VA hospital, but these kinds of stories are an indicator

What's important to Jared Polis is important.  There's still time, incidentally, for Jared Polis to make it to Club 20. We still hope he changes his mind. Join us by signing the petition urging him to do so.  George Brauchler thinks that legislating through the courts isn't the correct way to go.

Start your engines

So, Jared Polis spent the long weekend on a tour of the Western Slope in an attempt to mitigate the damage he did to his campaign with this Club 20 debacle. However, there's a big difference between meeting with small groups of supporters and answering tough questions about things like Jordan Cove. Walker Stapleton, on

Women will die

It seems like the whole "vote for me/follow our policy or people WILL LITERALLY DIE" argument comes back over and over from the left. Jared Polis is using it now. It's not even September yet, and we're already into "vote for me or women will die" rhetoric, so I have no idea how it's possible to

This Club 20 issue isn't going away for Polis. It is just generally bad for him, and the more he talks about it, the worse it gets. A measure that would blow a gigantic hole in the middle of Colorado's economy has made the ballot. Its passage would be a disaster of ridiculous proportions. Walker Stapleton has
