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"?
Compare his statements yesterday and to the one on Mike Rosen.
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.
