You’ve read about the editors of the Denver Post assailing Gov. Ritter for his cowardly, pro-union executive order? Talk about eating your words:
His successor must have a clear vision for Colorado, advancing the state’s economy while protecting its natural resources.
He must have the will to seek bipartisan solutions with a divided legislature and a restless business community.
He needs firm resolve that won’t wilt under political pressures.
He must see government as a force to advance the health and education of Coloradans. And, in this perilous time, to safeguard our borders from enemies, drug runners and the risks of natural disaster. He must be ready to crack down on illegal immigration while laying out a welcome mat for legitimate newcomers and temporary workers.
Most of all, he needs to lead an economic development effort that is second to none among our neighbors in the West.
He needs to be Bill Ritter, the one person in this race with all those attributes and more.
The Post a bad judge of character? Wising up? Experiencing regrets? Perhaps all these and more. Ouch, what a bitter pill to swallow – this just may be a classic case of endorsement remorse.
