Ken Salazar defeated millionaire Republican, Pete Coors for the open senate seat from Colorado in 2004.
Salazar's vote for "S.256 - Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer Protection Act of 2005" shows that Coloradans did not send a Democrat to the Senate. They got Coors lite.
Salazar thinks he is making himself safer and that six years is a long time and his strategy will get him re-elected, and he might be right - ever more to the right - but I doubt he will get many of us stumping for him again.
He may think he is assuring himself of re-election by voting with the Republicans time and again, but our limited energy will be focused on candidates who are closer to our hearts. Just as Coors, I mean Salazar, moves his constituents down on his priority list, his supporters will find other campaigns to work on, instead.
You may get our votes, Ken, but you've lost our hearts and enthusiasm and I doubt you'll be getting any Republicans on your side in a swing state like Colorado. The Republicans will be back in force. Yet, Colorado is shifting and I suppose you're waiting us out and for the time being sucking up to the right. Yet, you may be on the wrong side. Colorado voted the Republicans out as they were not for bread-and-butter issues. Democrats recaptured both State Houses for the first time in over 40 years.
You're out of step Ken. Ken? Ken? Ah. I see. You aren't listening.
