Gov. Hickenlooper is threatening to take his ball and go home if the Interior Department reviews the sage grouse plan that put millions of acres off line for use across the West.

The department is reviewing the plan because many stakeholders were left out of the decision making, which was ruled by the wishes of the Environmental overlords of the Democratic Party.

But Hickenlooper is insisting that if others are let into the discussion at a later point, then no one on his team will want to participate in future games.

If only that were true.

If Democrats were truly interested in allowing everyone to have a voice, they wouldn’t feel so threatened by this review.

The fact that they are just goes to show the sage grouse decision was a very lopsided one.
