John Hickenlooper wouldn’t enrage his union friends by reversing Ritter’s unionization order
During Monday's Elevate Colorado debate in Glendale, former Governor Bill Owens pointed out to Obama Democrat John Hickenlooper that the Democratic Party's strongest supporters are union leaders. Therefore, it was no shock that Hickenlooper firmly defended unionization in general and Governor Bill Ritter's executive order that effectively unionized many of the employees of the government of the state. To reverse Ritter's order, he declared, would enrage union members and demoralize state workers (See my clip below.)
Nice video, Don. Being in Cabo, I haven’t heard the Hick’s voice in a while. He sounds like he’s a candidate for governor of NY. And all the sound and fury hear signifying nothing. I could barely figure out what he was talking about. Correction, I didn’t figure it out, except for the apparent refusal to reverse the conflict of interest laden executive order on government unions.
He can really be Obamaesque a la 2008 campaign and be whatever the listener wants to hear, wants to project onto him.
You’re doing darn well in your prediction about Maes. Any predictions on whether he’ll withdraw from the race?Posted by Laura Victoria on 10/12/2010 at 04:55 PM
