DENIAL: Colorado Dem blames recall loss on voter suppression

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

In the ultimate display of denial, recalled Democratic Colorado State Senator Angela Giron blamed her loss on “voter suppression” during an appearance on CNN yesterday. Earlier this week, Colorado residents voted to recall Giron and Democratic Senate President John Morse over a number of gun control laws they pushed through the State Legislature.

GIRON: We know what really happened here. Yes, we had the strong NRA and you have a person like Mr. Head, but what this story is really about, it’s about voter suppression. When Colorado has voted by mail, 70% of Coloradoans vote by mail. And we didn’t have access to that mail ballot.

BROOKE BALDWIN: Okay, forgive me but I’m going to cut you off right there because if we talk voter suppression, I’ve read reports of lack of popularity on your behalf. Let’s just not go there. Let’s get to the meat of the story which is this gun control stance that they…

GIRON: That is the meat of it.

“That is so great,” Pat said. “‘Let’s not go there. I’ve got reports of how unpopular you are. Can we not blame this on voter suppression?’ Because 5/6t of the money spent in this race was spent by [Giron, Morse] and their allies, the mayors against guns group. It’s amazing.”

The CNN anchor went on to remind Giron that nearly $3.5 million dollars was poured into her campaign efforts, including at $350,000 personal donation from New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, had promised to keep Giron and Morse in office. Comparatively, the National Rifle Associated donated $368,000 to support the recall effort, which pulled in only $500,000 total from the pro-gun lobby.

“I mean, that is incredible,” Glenn concluded.

    That is not denial, she actually believes her constituents lover her as much as she loves herself. Only because all her constituents that would have voted for her to stay in office were not able to find their way to the voting booths like the people that wanted her to go – she was dismissed by a huge mistake.

    Last reported her supporters were still out wondering the district lost and cannot find their way back home.

    Of course they blame voter suppression; this is standard operational procedure for the left when even their own voting base turns upon them in force.

    They are so caught up in their bankrupt ideology that when reality intrudes, such as in Colorado, then they cannot accept it and must find some way to blame others and fail to accept their own failures – narcissism at its finest.

    Actually no they don’t as far as I can see; it is the ultimate form of strong delusion.

    It isn’t so much voter suppression as it was voters who were bussed in for the original voting that put them in office in the first place. Now when some of those voters couldn’t come back and support them, they cry foul. What about the voting booths that were tainted at the time of the elections of 2012? Why don’t they cry when their side is corrupted beyond corruption and have illegal elections all over the country?

    Giron, quit your whining.  We threw you out because you thought you were able to throw our opinions under the bus.  Look who is under the bus now!  It’s you, baby!   So go back to making tacos, you are not what Colorado needs or wants!

    Her excuses are the most rediculous jabber I’ve ever heard. Was this recall not under the process of law? Shame on such narrow-minded people like Giron. How did she get elected in the first place? Probably by voter suppression.

    You see liberals when you force people in this country to your will when the rest of the country does not want to be your slaves this happens. That and none of the people who voted the last time even cared to this time because the only reason why they came out to vote was to legalize weed. That is right stoners voted for Dems I know shocking.

    I hope the winds are changing in Colorado and in other places as well.  When the Dems lose,
    they always have an excuse.  Hope, the Americans wake up from their slumber before the
    country goes totally to “pot”!  (Pardon the pun …)

    Is that how the Democrats won the last elections?  I was wondering already for a while
    how it was possible that so many “blind mice” were elected again!

    Too bad most of the right wing voters failed to make their vote count the last time around or the people in Colorado would not have had all the problems they are plagued with now.  The same goes for the general election.  Lets hope this all will change in 2014!

    Shh, mariowen.  We don’t talk about how the votes came about in the ’12 election.

  • chefz774

    They don’t cry because they won. They don’t care how or why they won, the only thing that matters to them is the acquisition of power, so they turn a blind eye or two when the fraud is exposed or call their opponents foul names, accuse them of racism and anything else they can think of, so the lame stream media picks that ball up and runs with it, hoping the low-info voters will buy it. And they use those same tactics when they lose.

    She has no clue what just happened to her–Hee, Hee, of course the people were too dumb to know what the recall was all about–Heee, Heeee!!!

    You are correct- what she really meant to say was ” we were just not able to give notice to all the people we paid to vote the first time around”!

    Liberal mantra…blah, blah, blah…forget the facts. Even with having tried to buy an election, she still blames this on voter suppression by conservatives. Next, she’ll be claiming that somehow or another, George Bush is responsible. Or, perhaps it’s because of racism. After all, the voters are just SOOOOOoooo…..lazy, stupid, gullible and irresponsible. That’s why SHE was elected in the first place. After all, the sheep need a shepherd to tell them how to think, how to live, what to do. 

    This is so pathetic it’s laughable.

    In Colorado the law says that if there is a recall then the people MUST GO TO THE VOTING BOOTHS. No mail in ballots are allowed. Giron & Morse don’t even know these laws.

    Makes you wonder if it’s because they’ve experienced the same thing that many cities, states and municipalities do. I’m from Washington and when Christine Gregoir was running for governor, the Democrats in three counties cheated their way into the governorship. The vote was close, and both sides wanted a recount. When the recounts were taken, Gregoir and her cronies went into full on Chicago/Daly mode. Whenever the Republican, Dino Rossi would pass her in the vote count, somehow or another, crates of mail-in votes would be found in bathrooms, car trunks, corners of the election headquarters…you know the story. After she was 120 votes ahead, she declared victory.
    Of course, Dino Rossi challenged her in court. Unfortunately, nearly all the judges are progressive, revisionist schills. More than 18,000 illegal votes were found in Christine Gregoir’s favor, votes by convicted felons, illegal aliens, dogs, cats, dead people, unregistered voters, etc. During the election, there was video of Democrats in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties taking provisional ballots (ballots in which the signatures and names couldn’t be confirmed) which were bright pink in color, and laughing as they passed them through the machine many times each. They had tinkered with the computer software so that the machines would accept the ballots. In all other counties, the machines were programmed not to accept them and for some reason, no one TRIED to put provisional ballots through the machines.
    Gregoir outright lost overwhelmingly, yet, the judge upheld her “win” on the basis that to hand a win to Rossi would have been against the “will of the people”. You know, the dead ones, the animals, the felons, the illegal aliens…the main power base of the Democrat party in Washington. When Al Franken ran for office in Minnesota, he said that they were going to take a page from Christine Gregoir’s playbook to win the election. The same thing happened. A “close” election was won by Franken with some traditionally conservative counties suddenly voting 100% liberal with a total vote count greater than the number of people in the entire country. Once again, it was challenged in court with the same result. This is now du jour for Democrats and they have used it extremely effectively to their advantage.

    I am not sure of your point, but anybody (liberal, progressive, democrat, republican, tea partier, athiest, priest, etc.) will go to hell for going against any of the 10 commandments.  Politcal Affilation Has Nothing to do with it… 

    There is no such thing as Collective Salvation, it is all done on a personal level. 

    But, of course you would point out “Right Wing Nut” as the TARGET, Just Because You Are A Liberal (one that has their head up their butt) and cannot make a cohesive statement if your life depeded on it (I am not being hateful for pointing out the Real You)…

    slkgej,  It’s sad that one can’t expect a truly honest election anymore.  Makes me wonder why I even bother to vote in CA.  The Dems seem to have the state sewed up.  And even if something passes (see Prop. 8), it will be challenged in court and will, often, be overturned on appeal.  Why bother, indeed!

  • TheMaskedMarauder

    How ridiculous! We can’t commit acts of vote fraud so we lost? These people are freakin unbelievable. They lost the recalls because their voting for gun control measures and the people of the state petitioned to have recall elections and they won the elections – simple as that. 

    Their denial is completely laughable. 

  • TheMaskedMarauder

    I suspect you may be right. They only got elected by cheating and when the means to cheat was denied them, they lost. They lost to an honest electorate in a fair election and they simply can’t handle that.

    when they say voter surpression, what they mean is they cant use absentee ballots to stuff the ballot box with dead and ileagle votes. Lets understand that exactly what the Dem party dose and they see nothing wrong with that. thats why they hate voter ID laws. thats why they say its voter supression. It suppreses all their extra votes that arent leagle.

    Yes, Due to corruption that started way back with the Moter voter Bill in the late eighties? the dems have been stuffing the ballot box and have taken over the state. It is now a one party system. Democracy is dead in Calf.
