Political watchers know that the best flip-flops don't happen immediately, or all at once. The truly artful backpeddlers renege slowly, incrementally, haltingly in hopes that maybe the public won't catch on.
Call us cynical, but do we sense that Guv Hick has gone from "hell no" on a tax increase to "probably no"?
Note especially the part where Hick said he didn't make any pledges during the campaign not to support a tax hike. Maybe we are cynical, but maybe the drumbeat from the liberals, the Denver Post, and the CEA is having an effect.
Don't do it, Hick. Don't do it.
