Conservative Group Gives Gardner ‘Enema Of The State’ Award
Huffington post ^ | 12/18/17 | Jason Salzman

Posted on 12/21/2017 9:08:28 AM PST by x1stcav

U.S. Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO) has been taking it pretty hard from all Coloradans, judging from his low approval ratings, and his conservative base isn’t giving him a pass when it comes to criticism either.

In one recent Facebook post, for example, the North Jeffco Tea Party shared an image of an “Enema of the State” award that was apparently bestowed on Gardner by a vote at the Christmas Party of the Jeffco Liberty Party Coalition.

The award, also given to Sen. John McCain of Arizona, was for Gardner’s “Conduct Unbecoming of a Conservative.”

Gardner has also been under serious attack most of the year by some conservative talk radio hosts here in Colorado, most recently because of his abandonment (and then partial embrace) of failed Alabama Republican Roy Moore, but generally because of his close ties to U.S. Senate President Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, who’s seen as a tool for moneyed GOP interests ― as opposed to a champion of Tea Party principles.

He’s up for reelection in a POTUS year in increasingly communist Colorado. Near certain lost seat for GOP.

Ya. I live in Colorado. Have seen it go from a modest state to liberal. Very sad.

Liberals fleeing California have moved here and have tainted the politics.

If Hickenlooper runs against him, he’s in trouble.

If he runs on his record, he’s in trouble.

“Liberals fleeing California have moved here and have tainted the politics.”

Don’t forget legions of people from New York City and New Jersey. Oh, and the carpetbaggers from ‘Texas’ that are really from New York. Skinny jeans and nose rings.

Spot on. My old neighborhood is overrun with them — rich east coast liberals. BTW, the homes in my neighborhood are unaffordable. The liberals are probably happy though — they don't want my kind of riffraff spoiling their neighborhood.

It’s also those damned universities attracting a bunch of left-leaning punks.

I can’t wait for online degrees to start taking hold so the leftards don’t flood a particular place.

You’re exactly right. I think he’ll be a one termer.

He’s worthless.

Hate to lose the hard won seat.

Yup. That only the rich punks (or their parents) can afford. It drives the costs up for the rest of us.

My son is going to CU Boulder. His major is engineering. But isn't cheap and we are tightening our belts. Our plan is to move out of Colorado as soon as he graduates.

Sad since my family has been in Colorado since the 1800s; five generations.

Explains why no one will answer the phones at any of his offices.

He is a scumbag establishment swamp monster who used his victory speech in 2014 to let those of us who voted in him and expected him to represent us that impeachment of obama and government shutdowns were off the table. A pox on his house. I cannot wait to vote for his opponent in 2020.

I’m with you. Tired of the Gardner-type vermin.

They think we’re fools.

I’ll be glad to show them otherwise.

I agree. It’s a shame. If he gets back on the conservative track and stays there, he could win again.

Merry Christmas!
