Today, a video was posted on ColoradoPols, in which Pat expressed views that were completely at odds with Andrew’s campaign, his career and his commitment to the environment and to Colorado’s working families. Andrew heard those comments for the first time this afternoon and ended Pat’s role in the campaign.
Only…well, take the number of days Caddell has been anywhere near the state of Colorado, and that’s how many days too late. Original post follows.
Appearing with David Horowitz, Andrew Romanoff’s senior advisor Pat Caddell said that environmentalists don’t actually care about the environment, but are out to destroy the free-market system. He vociferously agrees with David Horowitz that they are “communists.” He agrees with David Horowitz that the stimulus and the health care bill are only there to give power to SEIU and ACORN. He called union members “thugs.” This was a little over a month ago. Watch for yourself:
What advice is Andrew Romanoff actually paying for? Why does the UFCW and the Teamsters think that Andrew Romanoff would be a better representative when his senior advisor calls them “thugs?”
More perplexingly, why would anyone cling to the fantasy that Andrew Romanoff is at all progressive on the environment or labor or any other issue when his record says otherwise and the people he is paying to advise him make many Republicans in Congress look progressive by comparison?
