UPDATE: As a reader pointed out, what “upward trend” is Palacio talking about? Not only was Palacio’s drivel a generic DC talking point, but it reflects a significant disconnect with economic reality.
Palacio went on to say that, “while our families are fighting to continue the upward trend in the economy, one thing is clear: Mitt Romney’s policies are far out of touch with Colorado priorities.”
His quote sounds like one developed for one of the third party groups that creates identical ads for 10 different races and just inserts the name of the opponent and state for each ad. Not that it doesn't give us pleasure to know the state Democrat Party is run by a feckless buffoon, but it's painful to read Palacio's drivel in the Post. Say what you will about Dick Wadhams, but the man could give a decent quote on the record.
As the Colorado Democrat Party is virtually run by 3rd party groups like ProgressNow the only thing Palacio really has to do is give quotes on the record. When he can't do that, you wonder how weak the Democrat Party has become in Colorado that they elected someone like him.
