In a round-up story about Democrats refusing to comment on the Hillary Clinton email debacle, CNN cited one of Colorado’s own, Rep. Jared Polis, who CNN now thinks is a “moderate Democrat”. We can only laugh, folks, as Polis is now part of a story he was desperately trying to avoid. Here’s the excerpt:
“When CNN attempted to ask a group of moderate House Democrats about Clinton at a press conference where they were unveiling a new policy agenda, Colorado Democratic Rep. Jared Polis made it clear he and other members wouldn’t bite.
“That has nothing to do with the American prosperity agenda. It may be a great question for political pundits, but we’re here to talk about the new Dems American Prosperity agenda,” Polis said sharply.
Pressed further about this story stepping on Democrats’ messaging, Polis kept to his own, saying “we encourage Hillary Clinton and any other Democratic presidential candidates to adopt our prosperity agenda as part of their economic platform.”
This so-called moderate Democrat pushing something called an “American Prosperity Agenda” just months ago was the top Colorado economy hostage taker with his threats of fracking bans in Colorado. Perhaps CNN forgot this unfortunate episode that threatened the prosperity of many Coloradans. Pretty sure those folks haven’t forgotten.
