And Now For A REAL "Throwback Thursday"

  • 11 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Newly-elected Colorado Republican Party chairwoman Kristi Burton Brown is on a tour to visit all the vast expanses of dirt where Republicans reside from corner to corner of our rectangular state–and gentle readers, check out the fossil she dug up in Yuma!

We honestly do appreciate the periodic welfare check on Colorado’s most recently defeated former U.S. Senator Cory Gardner, mostly because we hear so little from him these days. Where many former U.S. Senators parlay their experience in that august body into a whole new career of bigger and better things, Gardner’s achievements since losing his Senate seat by nine points last November have consisted of co-chairing a new PAC and…well, whatever Gardner was doing yesterday at his family tractor shop we guess.

As for all the amazing things Cory Gardner “delivered for Colorado” during his term, you bet! Much of that is an expected by-product of six years as a Senator, so let’s give first-year Sen. John Hickenlooper a chance to catch up. What we can say is that when Colorado needed Gardner to “deliver” most, be it for JBS meatpacking workers who didn’t get tested for COVID or ventilators Colorado had seen swiped by the federal government, all Gardner had was excuses–and loyalty to Donald Trump that outlasted Gardner’s own defeat.

For good or ill, seeing Cory Gardner’s indestructible smile once again conjures up a lot of memories.

We don’t think they are memories a majority of Colorado voters want to relive.

      1. Yeah, voting over 50 times to eliminate health insurance coverage for people with pre-existing conditions is dickish.

        Lying about it later is also dickish. Fuck Cory Gardner.

        1. For this, there is no forgiveness.  It’s personal. Pretending he had a plan to replace while vomiting his repeal rhetoric around the district (then state) was a dereliction of his public trust.  That, and the time he tried to gut the food stamp program from the 2014 Farm Bill. 

          Sorry, KBB -Hick is an improvement.  

           

          1. Oh, and being Mitch McConnell's lackey while both of them act in bad faith continuously.  Yeah.  Hick is an improvement and Gardner can go pound sand.

  1. Let's see …

    Cory's proud achievement to move the BLM to Grand Junction has been in the news recently.

    His particular concern with the ongoing thorn of North Korea … continues to make some modest headlines (the most recent one is a notice the Dear Leader has lost some weight, so his watch strap isn't so tight).

    I seem to remember a promise to get birth control pills turned into OTC status.

    He voted in favor of taking money from Colorado military facilities to Build The Wall!  [It was an emergency, donchaknow!]

    I seem to recall him voting [once] to NOT hear evidence and [twice] to ACQUIT Trump.

    [I don't want to be TOTALLY negative …]  Gardner also shepherded passage of the Great American Outdoors Act, a bill he introduced in 2020, which permanently funded the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

     

     

    1. When then Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke was "studying" Clinton and Obama- created large national monuments for likely downsizing, Gardner supposedly told Zinke to "overlook" Colorado's Canyons of the Ancients.

      1. Remember that time he showed us exactly who he is?  (for the record the shale revolution isn’t “real”, it’s a “Ponzi scheme.”)
