The union bag man Gov. “Jimmy Hoffa” Ritter’s spokesman Evan Dreyer made a reluctant appearance on the Mike Rosen Show this morning with guest host Jon Caldara. Confronted with the issues surrounding Friday’s Big Labor payback, Dreyer hemmed and hawed around the questions. This is a must listen: follow the link, and listen to Rosen Replay 11/5/07 11-11:45 AM. It begins about a third of the way into the recording.
There may be little doubt about why Ritter released this executive order in a Friday afternoon press release – and got called on it by the Denver Post – but you have to wonder what finally gave the governor’s crew enough courage to come out in the light of day and defend the massive policy change in a confrontational setting. And then be unable to answer very significant, pertinent questions about the executive order.
I hear that Dreyer may make a repeat appearance tomorrow morning to try to clear things up. The people of Colorado are ready to listen.
