We must have been very good boys and girls to receive such a gift. Embattled Democratic U.S. Senator Michael Bennet admitted to a group of law students that he hates speaking in Colorado.
Here’s the audio:
“I want to thank the students and faculty that are here today for the opportunity to address the Supreme Court vacancy caused by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death. You should know that I seldom give a formal speech and I don’t really like them myself, even on the floor of the U.S. Senate, much less in Colorado. This moment is unique, as it turns out, in American history, and I want to put it on the record, so I appreciate your patience….” (the Peak emphasis)
What does that mean that Sen. Bennet hates giving speeches on the “floor of the U.S. Senate, much less in Colorado”? We’ll translate it for you. Here’s what he meant:
“I hate giving speeches in the U.S. Senate, but you know where I REALLY hate giving speeches? Among the plebeian Colorado electorate, the people I represent (if I must) and the people who (please!) vote for me.”
Sen. Bennet hates giving speeches here in Colorado?
Let’s do him a favor. Perhaps Colorado should free him of this burden in Colorado come November.
