Surprise! Ken Buck Shows Up for Work!

Longmont Area Democrats had their “with or without Ken Buck town hall meeting” and guess who showed up? The man himself. Think activism doesn’t have any effect – there it is. Buck started out on the defensive and got more shrill as the meeting wore on. He hacked his way through a series of questions, tossing out rhetoric, GOP talking points and some good ole fashioned bullshit – which the crowd called him out on. It got tense a few times and I think the organizers wished they had a whip and chair – but the Dems calmed down and Ken didn’t run away (as GOP candidates are wont to do when faced with any substantive resistance). It was a great meeting – the Dems were fired up and Buck scurried away with his pants still smoking, staff hustling to keep up. Thanks to Shari Malloy who asked me to shoot this meeting – and a special thanks to everyone that came and spoke!

    Just wondering where you folks were when Hillary was violating the law with her email scandals and pay for play and when she was let off the hook for breaking the laws more severely than others who were put in jail? I also wonder where you folks were when Obama, Lerner, Lynch, Holder, and a host of other Obama Administration folks broke the laws of the land and simply ignored them. To say you are hypocrites would be an understatement.

    Oh, you mean just like Bush? (Sr and Jr) as well as Reagan? As for breaking the laws, Whitewater was clearly given a pass, I certainly agree there. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitewater_controversy – Bill and Hillary showed they could insulate themselves from the illegalities, insufficient evidence was found. That whole mess just smelled bad from day one, thus my support of Bernie.

    BTW, I went ahead and published dprato’s comment despite the fact that it violates the commenting rules (attacks the author). Mostly I find it uproariously funny to hear anyone in the GOP talk of hypocrisy. Always amusing.
