My recommendations in the 2010 primary

  • 10 Comments
  • by: DavidThi808

Here’s my recommendations in the primary (obviously I only get to vote in the Democratic one):

  • Andrew Romanoff for Senate. Senator Michale Bennet talks a good story, but the results from him have been disappointing. (And yes there are differences between Bennet and Romanoff.)
  • Ken Buck for Senate. Jane Norton is emblematic of what is wrong in the Senate, a tool of the Republican machine in thrall to lobbyists. I disagree with Ken on a lot, but he’s a thoughtful, principled, independent individual.
  • Dan Maes for Governor. Prior to learning about McInnis’ massive plagiarism I would have recommended McInnis. But how can we tell our children that plagiarism is wrong in school, but ok for a governor?

  1. Whenever I think the world is lacking self-importance or grandiose amateurism, I can come here to see the world’s supply runneth over.

    PS:  Could you please offer a printable, pocket-sized version of your recommendations, so that people can cut them out and carry them around.  Merci!

  2. He cannot be trusted. He stll has suppoerers stating he worked for the SPLC even a 3 month inership has been verified.

    He hasn’t answered when he taught English in Nicaragua which I believe he made up.

    He is accepting help from a 527(Pac by definition) when he claims anyone of the DC delegation is corrupt for taking it including his own career in the state house.

    I’m surprised that you have been so easily taken in

  3. The people who frequent this site are the most high-information of all the high-information voters in the State.

    I know that you fancy yourself to be influential, but do you really think that anyone who comes to Pols is waiting with bated breath to hear your recommendations before they vote?

  4. I don’t think we have ever agreed on any policy stuff ever and probably won’t.  I don’t agree with your two Rep recommendations.  But what I do like is that it is thoughtfully stated which is a nice look at how other people see it and that is nice to see a good opinion without any name calling and just good solid reason.

  5. Thank you, David, for your thoughts. I especially respect your candor with regard to the Republican gubernatorial primary and the GOP Senate race.

    If Jane Norton wins, though, Democrats will have a fat target for arguments about influence-peddling and corruption. That woman is already bought and sold. I mean, how can it be any different when her brother-in-law is one of the leading DC lobbyists?

    As for McInnis, my view is that the guy is a liar and a thief, plain and simple. He passed off another man’s work as his own and got paid an obscene and plainly unfair amount in exchange. Then he had the gall to blame it on an 82-year old, highly respected engineer. To top it off, he promised to “make it right” and then, at least so far, did exactly nothing to fulfill that promise.

    Scott McInnis does not belong anywhere in public life, let alone in the governor’s mansion. Dan Maes may be inexperienced, naive and opportunistic in terms of how he handles his campaign finances, but his flaws are not as disabling as his opponent’s.
