          •  "deep red" Strange, C-B was up 9 points two weeks (0+ / 0-)

            before the election.

            "republican"
            Sanford was dropped by the republican party.

            "why we're going to win"
            Well, sure.

              same spew, same lack of facts.

              please show some evidence

              that guns cost her the election. given that she led right through the gun debate, that she led right through the vote, and after, and that guns weren't even an issue in the race, and that there are no exit polls showing guns were even a factor in the race, and every analyst considers it but a reversion to the mean type race, where a republican wins a deep red district, please show some evidence. because you keep pulling this spam out of the same place you pull most of your arguments.

              yes, we've passed gun laws in colorado and maryland and won congressional seats where underdog democrats upset gun nut democrats. evolution moves forward, even if it leaves some behind.

              poor frank.

                C-B win.

                Gun Control was a national debate & Sanford made it a national election--Clearly with gun control being such a 'big winner', it must have helped C-B.....or at least kept her from losing eighteen points in two weeks.

                "poor frank"
                You should save your sympathy for the first recalled legislator in Colorado's 137 year history, John Morse. (Of course, he isn't the only one anymore)

                Your 'big winner' led to Morse having more signatures for his recall than he had votes in his last election.
                Don't worry, Laurence...he's just the Senate Majority leader. No big loss, amirite?

                  i know these facts are too challenging. or something.

                  please show some evidence

                  that guns cost her the election. given that she led right through the gun debate, that she led right through the vote, and after, and that guns weren't even an issue in the race, and that there are no exit polls showing guns were even a factor in the race, and every analyst considers it but a reversion to the mean type race, where a republican wins a deep red district, please show some evidence. because you keep pulling this spam out of the same place you pull most of your arguments.

                  •  The fact of C-B losing? The fact that gun control (0+ / 0-)

                    couldn't even help someone with a 9 point lead 2 weeks before the election win?
                    The fact that C-B lost 18 points after it became a national election?
                    The fact that your 'big winner' is anything but?
                    The fact that John Morse is the first recalled legislator in Colorado history?
                    The fact that John Morse had more signatures for his recall than he had votes for his election?
                    The fact that Angela Giron is the second recalled legislator in Colorado history?
                    The fact that Colorado voters now disapprove 49 - 36 percent of the job the State Legislature is doing?
                    The fact that you are now resorting to citing yourself?
                    The fact that all you can do is make excuses?

                    You're going to have to be a bit more specific, Laurence.

    •  blah, blah, blah...when was the last time a (7+ / 0-)

      Dem won that seat..??..over 30 years ago.

      this is some sad thread-jacking of already disputed BS...and off topic crap...keep up the great work...concern troll.

      •  When was the last time a Dem was up by 9 points (0+ / 0-)

        two weeks before the election in that district?
        When was the last time a Dem ran against someone that was outspent, arrested & dropped by his own party in that district?

        Excuses are for losers.
        Results are for winners.

        •  Remember how many recall (5+ / 0-)

          signatures there were for Walker?

          Morse is from CO Springs which has a narrow edge of Dem Voters. He is term limited from running in '14 and even if his seat goes GOP, the Senate would remain Dem.  

          Sen. Angela Giron is from Pueblo - which is about half Hispanic.

          Colorado is not purple. It's blue in metro Denver, with a lot of red, polka dotted with some blue, in the rest.

          Short list.
