Some Colorado conservatives are joining Trump in blaming the press for the daily-eye-pop-head-spin news stories streaming from the White House.
Mucking through the Fever Swamps™ like I do on a daily basis can be disheartening to say the least. The speed at which conservatives went from #NeverTrump and claims of anti-statism to being Trump apologists was amazing to behold.
I suppose it was inevitable. As each day brings new horrors committed by Trump, more and more Republicans begin to get nervous about owning his failures, and they try to cast the blame for his election on the real perpetrators—Democrats!
I’m not sure what possessed the Otero county Republican party to install 19-year-old Devin Camacho as their chair, but he is pretty extreme in his views.
After witnessing Trump blow through as much money on his weekly golf excursions in five months as Obama did in nearly eight years, I thought I would revisit this post by State Senator Tim Neville (R-Littleton).
Gardner wants everyone to drop the “hyperbole” about GOP health care bill. But what hyperbole is he referring to?
U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) told a conservative talk-radio host Monday that he wants people to “drop this hyperbole that we continue to hear” about the problems with GOP health care bill.
I have to admit that it is hard to read what conservative officials post on Facebook sometimes. This morning was one of those days. I went looking for conservative reaction to the testimony of former acting Attorney General Sally Yates, in which she described warning Trump’s counsel that Michael T. Flynn was compromised by the Russians and had been lying to members of the administration, including the vice president.
I was fascinated by this Glenwood Springs Post Independent letter to the editor written by Garfield County GOP Chair Carrie Couey, who got her fifteen minutes of fame last fall by visiting the Trump White House to “educate” Donald about healthcare. She got the invite because her family was used by conservative operative Laura Carno in a disingenuous, misleading, and seldom watched anti-Michael Bennet ad.
The right wing’s pseudo-concern for treatment of LGBTQ people in foreign lands doesn’t extend to Americans
I see this a lot in the Fever Swamps™. Someone posts a depiction of LGBTQ people being stoned to death or thrown off buildings in theocratic countries. The implication is that liberals just don’t care about persecution in Muslim countries. In this case the headline asks: “Where is the liberal outrage…?” To his credit, Scott Wills, a former school board member and former longtime chair of Elbert County GOP, seems to show genuine concern in his remarks:
Since the days my grandpa took me fishing in the Fairplay —before I could even walk—I have been in love with the outdoors. That connection to the wild, the openness, the escape from the concrete jungle; it’s one of the most important things we can do to feel human. My hunting buddies and I always joke with each other that tourists will pay thousands of dollars to experience just one week in the same wilderness we all enjoy right here in our backyard.
