Quote of the day from Vincent Carroll of the Rocky Mountain News (notably, a supporter of Referendum C):
If Gov. Owens had devoted even half as much time trying to defeat Amendment 23 five years ago as he spent boosting Ref C, Colorado today would not be saddled (that word again) with a requirement that K-12 education funding never, ever share in the sacrifice required by falling government revenues during a severe recession.
In light of Carroll’s observation regarding the governor, what takes precedence: conservative credentials or popular appeal? Draw your own conclusions.
