Last week, much ado was made over Mark Udall’s refusal to be seen with President Barack Obama due to Obama’s abysmal poll numbers. Many compared Udall’s praise for Obama back in the day when he was popular to Udall’s current game of hide and seek. But, Udall wasn’t the only politician praising Obama in 2008. Embattled Gov. John Hickenlooper also had some pretty noteworthy praise for then-Sen. Obama. Just watch:
From the video:
Change, Change has served me well, it’s served Denver well over its 150 year history, and change is the only thing that can restart our nation’s economy and realign our nation’s compass.
We simply cannot afford to continue down the same old path with the same old, tired policies, and the same old, tired politics.
Barack Obama represents the change we need. The new ideas and leadership to transform America’s challenges into opportunities. Barack Obama inspires us to work harder….
To his credit, Hickenlooper actually appeared with Obama. Perhaps Obama makes some want to work harder (at their golf game), but his change has been disastrous for our country. Let’s just chalk Hick’s sycophantic speech up to another lapse in judgment, shall we?
