Maes declines offer to drop out

No surprise here.  That’s been the Penry-Tancredo plan all along.  For once I have to say good for Maes (not that that’s going to change my vote in November).

  1. “Tancredo offers to drop out.”

    I think the article, and the offer, say a lot more about Tanc than Maes.  Tanc and El Wado are obviously still talking to each other.

    This to me makes it a clear near certainty that Tancredo will drop out prior to November.

  2. He’s running a business in or serving the residential mortgage origination industry.   That industry starts to tank, and he sells the business (he claims for big money).

    What next?

    He probably evaluated another job, another business, other opportunities and he decides to run for public office.

    Whatever that decision process looks like  – he files. No big press, no one outside his family takes him seriously.  FAll turns to winter and while people have learned his name, no one takes him seriously. ANd then he wins caucus. ANd does well at assemblies and gets top line.  Still, few are serious about him.  

    Then he wins the primary. So what has he learned:

    – The less the voters and press take him and his campaign seriously, the better he does.

    – The experts are sometimes wrong.

    – Opposition candidates can blow up.

    – If you stick around and just don’t quit, keep working, you can win.

    – And now, choose a more mainsrteam LtGov.

    So no, there is virtually no way he gets out.

    It won’t be something like he filed his taxes late, nor that he’s got kids from more than one woman and not all his wife.  It won’t be other typical wackiness from his youth or his past – we’re past that now.  Live boys and dead girls – damaging sure, but I’m not at all sure he’d drop.

    1. Sniff….sniff…..nope, that doesn’t pass.

      More likely scenario: Business tanked with the downturn in the RE market.  (Oh, good predictive abilities, there.  Not a good sign of a manager of the state.) He turned his attentions to the race and let the credit reporting biz just fade away.  

      Why on earth would A) Anyone want to get into the CR business during a real estate bust, and B) Why not just start it on your own?  Maes proved that it is pretty easy. (Which from my once upon a time days I know that the most difficult part of such an endeavor is just getting new clients.  No major capital or expertise needed.)

        1. business that requires almost nothing to get into and is drowned along with the rest of the real estate industry had value?  What a load of horse shit.
