Tancredo to make third-party bid for Colorado governor

Updated: 6:08 p.m.

By Felicia Sonmez

Former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R) is launching a bid for Colorado governor as an American Constitution Party candidate, a development that further adds to the Democratic edge in the race to replace retiring Gov. Bill Ritter (D).

Tancredo told the Denver Post Monday morning that he expects to launch his candidacy at noon Mountain Time.

The expected announcement comes days after Tancredo issued a statement warning the two current Republican Party candidates, former Rep. Scott McInnis (R) and businessman Dan Maes (R), that he would pursue a third-party bid if the eventual Republican nominee declined to bow out of the race after the Aug. 10 primary if polls favored the likely Democratic nominee John Hickenlooper; both candidates -- big surprise! -- refused to make such a commitment.

Colorado Republican Party chairman Dick Wadhams told The Fix that Tancredo's entry into the race will divide the GOP vote and essentially hand the race to Hickenlooper.

"Tom Tancredo's arrogant decision to go ahead and get in the election today ensures that enough votes will be siphoned off the Republican candidate that Hickenlooper will win," Wadhams said.

He charged that Tancredo's self-imposed noon deadline was a "charade" and a "fraud," noting that a coalition of 21 "tea party" and 9.12 groups wrote a letter to Tancredo last night urging him not to get in the race.

"If he was sincere about wanting to help find a stronger Republican candidate than the two who are in, he would've waited until after the primary," Wadhams said.

Tancredo, who served five terms in Congress and made a short-lived bid for president in 2008, first made overtures that he would pursue a gubernatorial bid after reports came to light earlier this month that McInnis had plagiarized a series of essays.

On the national stage, Tancredo has become known for being an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration -- an issue that features prominently on Tancredo's official website.

Wadhams said that he expected Tancredo to garner only about ten percent of the vote this fall -- but in a race that recent polling has shown to be neck-and-neck, that could make all the difference.

McInnis responded with a statement apparently referencing Tancredo's proposed "deadline" but not mentioning the candidate by name.

"Those looking for a deadline should focus on the only real deadline: August 10 at 7 p.m.," McInnis said, adding that "Colorado Republicans will speak with their votes on that day, and I will abide by their decision."

Maes, by contrast, released a fiery statement in which he took on Tancredo directly.

"Coming from a man whose career has been marked by often-astonishing levels of arrogance, this move shouldn't surprise us," Maes said. "Tom, know that your candidacy only means I'll work that much harder to undo the damage you will cause."

Democrats are casting Tancredo's entry into the race the latest example of the tea party's influence on the Republican Party.

"Another front exploded today in the ongoing GOP Civil War that is raging across the country," said Nathan Daschle, the executive director of the Democratic Governors Association. "As we have seen in Florida, California and Colorado, the Tea Party is on offense and is forcing Republicans further and further to the right."

Daschle added that Colorado Republicans "now have to choose between a serial plagiarizer who has lost the faith of his party or a five-term ex-Congressman who spent the last decade as a mouthpiece for the radical right."

If the best person for the Governor's job is Red, Blue or in between, isn't the point. It's a respectable decent Coloradoan that doesn't have the baggage of corruption, activism, theft, etc. Someone who will make the Centennial State the "Jewel of the West."

Tancredo seems just down right mean. He will run to the far right and throw red meat to a base of anti-immigration sentiment, not illegal immigration sentiment. I don't really think Tancredo has a real shot to win the governor's race. However, I'm not certain anti immigration is a 1 party issue. Many Demcorat welfare receipients seem to feel that hispanics are taking some of "their help" away. Tancredo could appeal to non working welfare receipients and racist Republicans on his immigration stance. I still think this helps Hickenlooper in the long run. It definately will make the debates more interesting.

Since the end of WWII, America has been misdirected by its government controllers in the biggest way, and for the most evil designs. John F. Kennedy tried to change course, but he got shot in the head for it. It wasn’t pretty. Forty-seven years after his death, and there still isn’t any sense of national closure because his true murderers have not faced justice. In fact, they still rule America through the usual tricks of the trade: deception, secrecy, and fear. Largely unknown to them until now, the American people have suffered under a tyrannical and traitorous shadow corporate-state that killed their President, and which operates secretly behind a cowardly, and self-serving political class, in the name of “National Security.” High treason, war crimes, and state terror are the defining features of this “National Security State.” And it was created for purposes that are not much different from those of the Nazi regime; power, greed, and world domination for elite profits.

Dick Wadhams, chairman of the Colorado GOP, has called Scott McInnis "untrustworthy" and Dan Maes a "joke," Tom Tancredo and local morning show radio host, Peter Boyles, both asserted this morning.

Jane Norton, U.S. Senate candidate, just said on the radio she is disappointed that Tancredo is running and said she will vote for the GOP gubernatorial candidate, regardless.

Ken Buck, who's been endorsed by Tancredo, said he won't disown that endorsement and refused to say who he would vote for governor.

Wadhams is coming across like a liar. Norton is coming across like a partisan who doesn't have Tancredo's endorsement, and Buck still is campaigning for the Tea Party votes in the primary.

At this point in time, it's worth recalling that the 'partiers ignored immigration for over a year:

http://24ahead.com/n/9837

Their ideology is bogus: they think they can reduce spending while at the same time ignoring immigration. Their opposition is bogus: instead of challenging Obama in ways that would resonate with most Americans, they go for the crazy. And, their techniques are bogus: ranting, raving, waving loopy signs, playing dress-up games, and throwing tantrums.

TEA PARTY IS REALLY RACIST
Michael Gerson's pathetic attempt to separate the tea party from its racist core only serves to illuminate the constant effort by the rules of this country to obfuscate the real issues confronting this once-great nation.

The country the tea party wants to "take back" is 90 percent owned by 1 percent of the population, a fact quite effectively obscured by the Rush Limbaugh, Glen Becks and Sara Palin and that despicable mouthpiece of right wing nuts, Fox News.

Their constant preoccupation with racism obscures this obscene separation between those who have and those who don't. The Tea Party complements this odious faction quite nicely.

The Obama supporters who comment on this blog I guess overlooked what Colorado GOP Chair said:

"...noting that a coalition of 21 "tea party" and 9.12 groups wrote a letter to Tancredo last night urging him not to get in the race."

So how is the Tea Party movement seen as supporting Tancredo when they're asking him not to run.

Tancredo has tried to latch on some Tea Party groups, not the other way around.

And I think he did because he had that Governorship in mind and wanted their endorsement.

Which evidently he has not received.

Obama Closed Car Dealerships on Affirmative Action Basis


Remember when DDunce was so amused when I stated clearly and mathematically that it was statistically impossible for Obungler to have done his closings based in the "offered" excuses and that instead there was an underlying political agenda.

If there is anything to be learned from this, it is that Liberal "scholarship" is really worth a laugh.

Between liberals running the economy (into the ground) killing the auto companies, ruining banking, destroying the environment with culpable negligence and ineptitude, chasing away our jobs and foreclosing on our houses, on top of the al gore crazed poodle enviro-fraud, I doubt there is really much of anything left that is considered a liberal strength.

Perhaps surrendering and apologizing, if that counts.

Racists liberals prefer to turn the tables wihout being discovered.

Obama Closed Car Dealerships on Affirmative Action Basis

Now that our first Affirmative Action President is in charge of the auto industry, car dealerships are closed down on the basis not of profitability but of race and gender:

Decisions on which car dealerships to close as part of the auto industry bailout — closures the Obama administration forced on General Motors and Chrysler — were based in part on race and gender, according to a report by Troubled Asset Relief Program Special Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky. …
Thus, to meet numbers forced on them by the Obama administration, General Motors and Chrysler were forced to shutter other, potentially more viable, dealerships. The livelihood of potentially tens of thousands of families was thus eliminated simply because their dealerships were not minority- or woman-owned.
Similar discrimination is codified in the recent financial reform abomination.

Dealerships were also closed for being rural, because people in small towns have overwhelmingly resisted Obamunism from the beginning. There was no financial reason for the closings.

[A] top Obama official, manufacturing czar and "Auto Team" leader Ron Bloom admitted that the dealerships could have been kept open, saving those jobs, "but that doing so would have been inconsistent with the President's mandate for 'shared sacrifice.'"
Shared, that is, between white guys and rural white guys.

Won't it be wonderful (for certain segments of the population) when healthcare is apportioned on the same basis?

This is what liberals call "uniting America."

The front range is becoming a wonderful place with clean high tech industries, highly functional mass transit and an educated and sophisticated population who lives here because they want to live here. Something similar to California in the 1960s.

These people deserve an intelligent, forward thinking person like Hickenlooper. There are plenty of places for Republican rule, e.g., the deep south, Western Kansas, rural Texas, Nebraska, etc. I'm glad to see the Republican vote divided this way. It will help Colorado develop to its full potential.

Tancredo needs a haircut


This is the problem with the Republicans - they feel the moderate Republicans when elected do not act to put into effect Republican programs.


Coming out of that - many conservatives have demanded that conservatives be put in office - to get something done.

These people who are thinking this way - they have already thought out the dilemma - that the moderate Republicans may have more appeal in the general elections - however these people have reasoned that if a moderate Republican wins, little gets done, so what is the point ?


That is the idea - right or wrong - that is the thinking that is out there.

ON the Republican side - this thinking MAY be rational - because let's say the Republicans nominate ALL conservatives - half may lose the general in races where a moderate may have won.


But from the conservative point of view - they STILL get Conservatives in HALF the positions overall - putting into effect Conservative ideas.


This perhaps MAY be preferrable to having the Republicans - for instance - win twice the number of general elections with moderates - and having those moderates do little in terms of conservative ideas - budget cutting.

That is the thinking - that is what is going on out there.

Tancredo has always been more of a black eye for the Republican Party than anything else. Assuming he doesn't cost them the governorship in Colorado, and maybe even if he does, the party is probably better off without him. Taking a strong stand on illegal immigration is one thing, but Tancredo is one of those rare people on the extreme fringe who actually seems to be anti-immigration rather than simply against illegal immigration, and his nasty rhetoric on the subject does nothing to build GOP credibility. Good riddance.

Why? Hickenlooper benefits from having Tancredo in the race. It's the winner of McInnis v Maes that needs to worry about the Tancredo effect - it is their (GOP) base into which Tancredo will dig for his votes. Hickenlooper needs to step back & let the three of them try to out-crazy each other, then step in later as the only rational choice in the race.

Here in Colorado (not mention AZ) there's anger over illegal immigration. Tancredo knows this and sees an opportunity to turn this election into a people's referendum on the topic.

Couple Tancredo with the GOP's two clownish gubernatorial candidates and you have a GOP version of Curly, Larry and Moe ... The Three Stooges draped in red, white and blue bunting.

Tancredo can't pull off a victory, but he can hurt the GOP for not hearing the people speak about the immigration mess. Since Reagan, the GOP has gone along with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and big business to use illegals to depress wages and destroy unions.

DDAWD,

it does not make them more intelligent - but it forces the establishment to respond to the people - Obama lost me when he caved on the "public option." he allowed the fear mongers to dictate the result/

Democrats like Bill White using the term "community organizer" to dish Obama and win votes is not tolerable and that is why those of on the left need to oppose this garbage.

This is my point - Until the Repubs and Dems both learn they are going to earn our votes we the people will continually be dismissed as irrelevant.

On this concept, and not on any policy positions of Tancredo, I support his actions.

It is funny how the Repubs are crying tancredo will dilute the Republican vote, but when the Republicans played this game by putting the Green Party on the ballot in Texas to dilute the Democratic vote for governor the Repubs were all for it.

The GOP leadership hates Tancredo because they hate the GOP voters. Tancredo is for stopping immigration that is bankrupting states like Colorado, California and Arizona.

The GOP leaders are for the bankrupting of the states by 3rd world immigration. They have to blame themselves. The reason they are for bankrupting the states is they have contempt for ordinary GOP voters and want business money that wants the free ride of low wage immigrant labor.

The GOP leaders are haters of GOP voters and think they are stupid. So the GOP leaders not only deserve to be dumped from office, but they must be. The hate from GOP leaders towards GOP voters comes from Boehner, Lindsay Graham, John McCain, Bush, Powell, Wolfowitz, Frum, Heritage H-1b Foundation, etc. on a regular basis.
