Received this e-mail today from Andrew Romanoff's (D. CO-06) campaign:
Did you hear what former Congressman Tom Tancredo told the Tea Party last week in Cañon City? Take a guess:
   “The DREAM Act will be a nightmare for the American people.”
    “If you want to keep your own language, stay where you are.”
    “In his heart,” Barack Obama is “not an American.”

Time’s up. The answer is 2.

The other two statements? Those aren’t Tom Tancredo’s words – they’re Mike Coffman’s.

As a candidate, Coffman vowed to continue his predecessor’s fight against immigration reform. He quickly made good on that threat.

In the past 12 months alone, Congressman Coffman has rejected proposals for comprehensive reform, called for an end to birthright citizenship, and voted twice to subject DREAMers to the threat of immediate deportation.

It’s no wonder Coffman introduced Tancredo at a Tea Party rally as his “hero.”

Congressman Coffman needs to decide whether he represents our interests or Tom Tancredo’s. He can’t do both.

Our district is home to people who come from 130 countries and speak 120 different languages. We ought to be celebrating our diversity, not disparaging it.

Will you join Andrew in calling on Congressman Coffman to renounce his support for Tom Tancredo?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
