    And do you know the really big problem with this attitude?  The Democratic Party and all of the big consultants are telling all the rest of their candidates for 2014 to run from the issue.  They are literally being told not to respond to questions at town hall meetings and not to talk about the legislation that passed.  If this continues, the Republicans will sweep Colorado in 2014 like they did Wisconsin in 2010.  It is idiotic and stupid.  But, that's what they are being told to do.

    Candidates need to be proud of what they did.  It's popular and they should begin debunking the lies right now.  They need to be in the mail box with pieces telling folks what they actually passed, because right now people think that all they passed was gun confiscation which is what the NRA is telling them.

    Colorado is a swing state.  The last re-drawing of districts left us with more than 20 swing districts in a 100 member legislature, most of which are currently held by Democrats.  Colorado could have the wave of 2010 that we didn't have in 2010 here in Colorado.  

    Just another example of why I'm not a Democrat.  They don't deserve my support because they're just stupid.

      if the old comparison of the Democratic Party to the Washington Generals isn't so off-the-rails after all.

      You might consider diarying this in a couple of days.

      It's the next step after my diary, really. I barely grazed it at the end. But it's the real takeaway.

      With no Obama to drive casual Democrats to the polls, I fear for all the state legislatures, and the US Senate in '14.

      Add that to the Democratic messaging cowardice, and '14 could be a worse catastrophe than '10.

      How many of these idiot legislatures can the US stand?
