Subject: "HICKENRITTER" STANDS BY FAILED RITTER POLICIES WHILE ACCIDENTAL SENATOR BENNET STANDS BY SPECIAL DEAL FOR LABOR BOSSES
 
Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper was incapable of naming a single policy enacted by failed Governor Bill Ritter that he disagreed with and would repeal if elected governor.
Appearing on the KUSA-TV Channel 9 program "Your Show" by Adam Schrager, "Hickenritter" was asked a direct question submitted by Colorado Republicans:  Is there an action or policy implemented by Governor Bill Ritter that you fundamentally disagree with?
After lauding Ritter's "courage" in withdrawing from the race--which had nothing to the question posed to him--he finally muttered something about there was a "better way to get there" in terms of enacting the Ritter energy regulations.  So he apparently has no disagreement with the substance of the job killing energy regulations, he only disagrees with the public relations in trying to sell them.
 
"Hickenritter" revealed the inherent weakness of his candidacy for governor.  He wants voters to focus on his quirky personality and ignore the real issues of this campaign.  There is no difference between Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper and failed Governor Bill Ritter on imposing a massive property tax increase without a vote of the people, imposing huge vehicle fee tax increases without a vote of the people, releasing violent criminals early from their sentences, signing an executive order unionizing state employees, repealing state spending limits, and enacting job killing energy regulations.
Meanwhile, Colorado's accidental senator, Michael Bennet, is silently compliant on the latest bribe to pass the "health care reform bill."  Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi cut a secret deal with labor bosses that will require non-union working families to pay higher taxes on high end health insurance policies while union members get a tax break. 
 
The Denver Post called on Bennet to vote against the bill and editorials in the Wall Street Journal and Grand Junction Daily Sentinel also condemned the labor union bribe.
