Much like Jason Crow’s role models John Hickenlooper and Jared Polis, Crow cannot seem to come to decision on basic issues facing Coloradans – common sense things like supporting law enforcement and our trial by jury system. Nor can he bring himself to elaborate beyond the most basic talking points from Nancy Pelosi’s playbook.
If Crow is the leader in our community like he says that he is, why didn’t he raise his voice when the the VA hospital project in Aurora started to go sideways? He claims to have advised the Obama campaign on veterans issues. Is he sure he wants to claim this? Obama’s efforts were a complete boondoggle. He also cites five years of service on the Colorado Board of Veterans Affairs. So, where was he when this massive project was going off the rails?
It’s telling that Crow cannot answer that question, especially since he is perpetuating a lie fronted by DCCC Chairman Ben Ray Lujan, who announced that Crow “led the charge to bring the VA Medical Center to Aurora.”
Perhaps Crow just didn’t care that what he was saying was a complete lie. Or, maybe, he’s one of those guys who doesn’t want to do any of the work, but simply wants all the credit. However, now he wants to replace Mike Coffman, who was relentless in holding VA bureaucrats accountable for the mishandling of this project – the single most expensive capital project ever undertaken in the Sixth Congressional District.
And about that veterans committee that Crow served on. Crow no-showed about 40% of the meetings. But veterans issues are a big priority for Crow? Actions speak louder than words.
