Maddow Showers Praise on Colorado Gardner Protests

  • 3 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Last night, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow paid tribute to the going on two months of continuous pressure on GOP Sen. Cory Gardner to resist President Donald Trump’s agenda–and what Maddow sees as the direct effect those protests have had on Sen. Gardner’s statements about Trump since January:

We apologize for the video quality of this clip–if MSNBC would care to post this as its own embeddable item themselves, we’ll happily replace. Whether or not you consider Gardner’s hesitance to embrace an agenda he told us in January not to fear legitimate, you can’t deny that he has at least become a symbol of that hesitance. In the end, it’s Gardner’s votes that will put him one side or the other for posterity.

Whatever Gardner does, Colorado’s scrappy resistance movement can take a bow. You’re getting hard-earned credit.

  1. I'd like to think that Maddow is right, and that Gardner's skepticism that The Great Wall will ever be built shows that he's bending to constituent pressure.

    But – it's more likely that he's just bending to objective reality. That wall can't be built because of geology, property rights,  and financing.  Plus, it won't  keep out illegal immigrants, or drug smuggling.

    US taxpayers would foot the $15 -30 billion dollar bill for what Sean Spicer is now calling, "Not a wall, but a large physical barrier".  Could be  a fence, a ditch, a moat with sharks….who knows? Mexico is definitely not paying for it.

    Now, if Gardner suddenly discovers that he cares enough about his constituents who will actually lose health care, or like me, be paying $7000 a year more for health care when I approach retirement,  that would be newsworthy.

    With Cory Gardner, one always has to watch not what he says, but what he does and how he votes. And so we still have to keep the pressure on.
