Does the Colorado legislature have anyone as hard left as Obama?

  • 8 Comments
  • by: Another skeptic

Here’s a thread about Colorado’s legislature. Does the Colorado senate have a senator as hard left and focused on racial issues as Sen. Obama was when he was in the Illinois Senate?

The Weekly Standard reports on Obama’s hidden career in Illinois here (warning, some literacy required):

Multi vote poll.

  1. Barack Obama isn’t “Hard Left”.  He’s a middle-of-the-road Democrat, and the Democratic Party in Congress is mostly Center to Center-Right.  You can repeat “Hard Left” as often as Dick Wadhams says “BoulderLiberalUdall” and it won’t change reality.

    Having said that, yes, there are several Colorado State Senators that are further to the “Left” than Obama.  Don’t know about “more focused on racial issues” – I don’t see most Colorado State Senators as racially focused, nor do I see Obama that way except when he keeps getting dragged into the “race debate” by the Traditional Media and the GOP.

  2. These folks might not qualify as “hard left” (neither does Obama, but that’s another argument), but they sure have been “focused on racial issues.”

    Ed Jones and Shawn Mitchell carried the torch to end affirmative action in public hiring, contracting, and admissions to public colleges and universities.

    David Schultheis sponsored a bill to forbid the state from publishing anything in Spanish and bar libraries from “purchasing any printed or electronic documents, publications, or other materials in a language other than English.”

    Andy McElhany, Bob Gardner and Frank McNulty led efforts this past session to crack down on “illegals.”

    Plenty of focus on racial issues in the Colorado Legislature. It just usually goes by other names.
