Romanoff: First Negative, Desperate, and Lying. Now Shameful.

  • by: catpuzzle

Today I went to Michael Bennet’s press conference in front of the capital that he to call out Speaker Romanoff for his simply false negative ads. I was one of those holding a sign behind him.

Apparently Romanoff’s campaign heard about it too and tried to crash the event. Totally unnecessary. They came across the same way Romanoff does – over-the-top negative and willing to say or do anything to win.

From a report that just came out on it from the AP…

A campaign event by Sen. Michael Bennet Saturday degenerated into a Democratic shouting match as more than a hundred of his primary opponent’s supporters crashed the event and heckled the senator.


Bennet and a number of supporters spoke, including DPS parents who testified to what a great job bennet has done, and Lt. Gov Barbara O’Brien, who spoke about how sickened she was about Romanoff’s lying negative campaign.

She also had a great exchange with one of the Romanoff supporters who were trying to shout her down. He said “we can’t hear you” as she was talking about Romanoff’s attacks. She responded “Well maybe you don’t want to, you’re holding a Romanoff sign!”

Bennet spoke last, and he was on fire. He was very courteous, as always, to the Romanoff crowd, and he defended his record forcefully and clearly. He rebutted each and everyone of the false attacks Romanoff has been making.

He talked about how he saved failing companies that were already going bankrupt, preserving thousands of jobs. Andrew’s attack on that is dishonest.

He noted that voted with environmental champion Mark Udall against an oil and gas bill that sounded good but was badly written and would have hurt Colorado’s economy. Andrew has attacked him for this vote.

He voted against a bank amendment that wouldn’t have dealt wit the real problems, and would have forced banks to sell off assets overseas. Another attack from Romanoff.

And he made the point perfectly that I think is the clearest difference between him and Romanoff: he knows Romanoff will launch political attacks on his votes, but his job isn’t to worry about that, its to do the right thing for Colorado.

Best I have seen him. He seems fired up and ready for this week.

I think some people will probably try to make the point that Bennet’s press guy showed up at Andrew’s thing. That’s true but there’s a huge difference between one guy showing up to talk to reporters, and an angry Romanoff mob trying to disrupt the event. Romanoff should be ashamed of this.

  1. I was talking with some friends that were there.  It sounded like Bennet didn’t actually rebut anything — just said “it’s not true” over and over again.  Care to recall how Bennet explained forcing companies into bankruptcy and then taking 11 million for himself?

    Favorite thing passed on to me from the event though?  Bennet spokesperson Trevor Kincaid telling a Romanoff supporter “Romanoff doesn’t need the job — he has a secret trust fund with millions in it.”  Not joking.  Apparently that’s where the Bennet supporters on this site keep getting that line.

      1. for posting that.  I also read the comments following, some from folks who comment here.  One basically calling Susan Daggett a liar and insisting that he/she is one who knows who Michael Bennet really is.  Oh, and jeffcotrueblue, who lables Bennet a Bankster, a looter and a vulture.  So classy.

        Bennet has an impressive resume and so does his wife.  I have no trouble believing they are both smart, caring people and Colorado is lucky to have them.  

    1. I was there and tried being nice. I flashed the peace sign and said peace and love to most ROmo supporters. Mos were receptive. only a couple responded with hate.
