Congressman Ken Buck (R-Greeley) is not known as a man of firm convictions. This is primarily because it is genuinely impossible to know where Buck stands on certain issues at any one time.
You can generally count on Buck, who also serves as the Colorado Republican Party Chairman, to voice at least one idiotic opinion on a particular topic. But three different opinions? That’s a rare treat.
Last week, in a span of 24 hours, Buck went from saying, “I don’t blame the President at all for this” regarding the attack on the U.S. Capitol building, to saying, “I think he’s partly to blame.”
Today, Buck showed up on CNN and offered a THIRD explanation for last week’s terrorist attack:
Rep. Ken Buck (R-CO): “Both sides are at fault.”

“What I’m trying to suggest to you is that both sides are at fault,” says Buck in an interview with CNN’s John Berman, who is understandably confounded by Buck’s proposal.
We’re not even going to bother with using a lot of words to explain why Buck’s suggestion that “both sides are at fault” is complete rubbish. There were not two different groups of people laying siege to the Capitol last Wednesday. Period.
It's hard for a looney politician to get attention among all the loons these days . . .
. . . the loon that loons looniest gets the early airtime.
Didn't Buck say "Both sides were at fault" in the Battle of the Bulge? "
I think he did
In his moment to shine, he’s once again a dim bulb
Again, how bad it is that of the three of them, he is the voice of reason by comparison to the other two.
In the aftermath of a school shooting, its too way early to discuss gun control. If its a treasonous insurrection, its immediately time to heal.
Kill ‘em all, let God sort it out; “get that black man out of the restaurant before I puke” Buck, Tar baby (born again Christian) Lamborn and #PewPew.
They sure know how to pick ‘em.
I ask my wife (who is a semi Colorado political junkie) to name 3 GOPer politicians in Colorado.
Her answer: "Boebert, Lamiekins, Buck".
I said: "OK, name a fourth". Silence.
