The Chairman of the Colorado Republican Party, who by day masquerades as Congressman Ken Buck (R-Greeley), tried to spin news of impeachment proceedings against President Trump today as Democrats “trying to overturn an election that didn’t go their way.”
Democrats spent 3 years trying to overturn an election that didn’t go their way. They wasted $40 million of taxpayer money to find no collusion & no obstruction. Now @SpeakerPelosi‘s call for a formal impeachment inquiry is based solely on rumors & hearsay. It’s time to move on.

Anyone familiar with Colorado politics instantly recognized the absurdity of Buck leading with his chin on this statement. This is, after all, the same Ken Buck who was elected GOP Chair earlier this year on the heels of a speech in which he cheered on a bunch of lame recall efforts by various Republican groups. Back in March, Buck stood on the stage at a Republican Central Committee Meeting and promised his audience that he would teach Democrats “how to spell R-E-C-A-L-L.” Multiple recall attempts have since failed in spectacular fashion, leaving the State Republican Party to choose between being labeled insincere or incompetent (or both).
Buck’s laughable attempts at accusing Democrats of trying to re-do an election were thus widely mocked by local political reporters, as you can see after the jump below…

March: “We need to teach (Democrats) how to spell R-E-C-A-L-L.”
Sept: “Democrats spent 3 years trying to overturn an election that didn’t go their way…. It’s time to move on.” https://t.co/ZJfVF1MhLw

Rep. Ken Buck, head of the Colorado GOP, opposes impeachment, saying: “Democrats spent 3 years trying to overturn an election that didn’t go their way… It’s time to move on.”
