Colorado Peak Politics hat tipped an unnamed reader for this truly delicious photo of recalled state Sen. John Morse’s name being removed from the Colorado Senate president’s office door. CPP rejoiced that “the recall is now complete.”

Not just delicious — schadenfreudelicious!

By the way, @SenJohnMorse, time to change the ol’ Twitter handle, eh?

      We had our chance a year ago this month :( Stupid selfish & lazy won out over the American Dream.

      • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

        You are absolutely correct in your assessment of what won out. The victory was enabled by the purists on the right that felt the need to send a message by voting libertarian, or not vote at all because Mr. Romney is Mormon, or he was too moderate, or his hair has to be proof he’s really an alien or some other dozen or so crazy beliefs.

        First law of land warfare, capture the objective first, then fight like hell to hold it. The cost of taking the objective may be perceived as high, but if you can’t bypass it, you have to take it.

          Though Animal Farm is thought of as a fable/parable about how revolutions are betrayed, it is also a story about how the animals, all with their own grievances against the Farmer, got together just long enough to oust him, and settled their own hash amongst themselves once the Farmer was gone (the falling-out between the leaders of the pigs).

          Orwell was prompted to include this part after his having witnessed the factions of Reds in Spain during the Civil War fighting more against each other than against the Franco-ites. As we might put it, “Don’t lose sight of the goal of draining the swamp, just because you are ass-deep in ‘gators.”

          • Deborah Hallsted

            Or as I keep saying, “we must all hang together, or assuredly we will all hang separately”. Ben knew what he was talking about.

        • Liz

          So when they lose the next time around, what excuse will you use?

          I held my nose for the last time and voted for Romney. No more.

          The Republicans either put up a candidate that will actually “try” to do what the Constitution says or I am done. No more money, no campaigning, nothing.

          I am done busting my a$$ and having the government take it all, no matter which side of the aisle they stumble from.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            I don’t make excuses. I deal in facts. If you don’t vote for the Republican candidate, you’ve voted for the Democrat candidate. That is the hard simple truth of the way our system works. One less vote for the Republican means that the Democrat needs one less vote to win. When you look at the numbers for the last election, the apathy of right handed the election to the left.

            And no you aren’t done busting your hump and having the government take it, unless you are going to renounce your citizenship and leave the country, try the Wesley Snipes route, or reduce your income to a point where you are getting back all you pay into the federal government but not requiring government aid yourself.

            We have to put these pouty-face, stomping feet emotional reactions aside and work as a cohesive whole or we lose, in the same spectacular fashion that we lost in 2012. They aren’t beating us, we are handing it to them.

          • GaryTheBrave

            If you don’t vote for the Republican candidate, you’ve voted for the Democrat candidate.

            The same yet opposite argument could be made about libs who voted for the Green Party candidates, etc.

            The reason that conservative third party candidates garner so many votes is because the GOP has done such a horrible job over so many elections to nominate truly conservative candidates. One problem is the open primary systems in many states. The party has wanted to prove they are the party of the big tent that they don’t do anything to prevent libs from throwing the nomination to the weakest candidate.

            The libs don’t have that problem with their primaries. We need to get to that point as well.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            Gary — agreed across the board. I don’t enjoy Presidential Elections, by the time the primaries get to Texas, the “choice” has been made and I often end up voting for someone other than my preferred candidate.

          • omg1172012

            If you want to unite, then stop pandering to everyone that does not stand with the Constitution. If GOP puts up a guy thats left of center, but not as left as the DEMS candidate then its the GOPs fault. I voted, but knew many that didnt because GOP lost their direction. Ted Cruz showed us even more GOP that believe in Big Govt. Until we get a real Conservative that supports small Fed Govt and States rights the GOP will fight apathy all the way to loses.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            Again, those that fail to vote for the candidate from Republican / Right that survives the primary.

            It is not that hard. You will never get a political candidate on the right that will be perfect for all the various factions within a political party. The Democrats / Left understand this, and we the Republicans / Right makes excuses.

            Those of us (like you) that understand this have to get those that don’t to understand this.

          • E Quilibrate

            Oh Yeah, That will surely fix the problem, Seeing so much of this attitude only makes me want to work harder to fix it, and
            you just want to give up.

          • Carolyn Palacios

            Darn straight. And their little swipe at the tea party has infuriated me. Do they really believe they can fund their RINOs without us tea partiers? Don’t think so.

          • BAW

            I’m with you Liz. I understand Questioning’s argument and that’s fine for all the people who agree. But it’s not for me. Now it really wasn’t that hard for me to vote for Romney, he is a good man and would have made a decent president, imo. I recent having been forced to vote for McCain far more.

            I think it may be because I have never “technically” been a Republican. I was a Democrat, a Reagan Democrat, a conservative Democrat (voted in my first R primary in the last decade) and since Democrats ultimately could never demand party loyalty from me, I don’t believe I owe it to the Republicans. I’m a conservative and if the Republican party continues to fight conservatives harder than they fight the left and if they’re determined and succeed in being just another establishment party I can not, I will not support that. Not even with my one little, probably cancelled out by fraud, vote.

          • Donald-Now2x/Sarc-w/0calories

            Well said, by you, BAW and Liz. It’s gotten so bad, I can’t even hold my nose anymore when voting. It’s over the top of the waders and I’m sinking in the swamp faster and faster. Reminds me of something a friend demonstrated for me on dealing with a rising tide of bull sh!t. Stand straight up with your left arm straight up in the air while holding your nose with your right hand and say “It’s too late to save the boots, so try and save the watch!”

            If you’re going to hold that sentiment, then be prepared to emigrate. That’s the likely result if you want your children to grow up in a vibrant economy.

            For example, if Romney were president, Obamacare would be derailed by now. Not repealed —- but knowing they had the bully pulpit behind them, the House GOP would have come up with something that could have forced the Senate’s hand.

            Keep that in mind. The worst (R) on the planet is a better president for freemarkets and free minds than the most conservative (D).

          • SameJerkDifferentName

            Welcome to the death of America. It’s happening right before our eyes. You people have to realize that unless we band together, this Constitutional Republic is gone forever. I’m not going to survive long enough to witness it, but those of you with kids need to pull your ‘principled’ heads out of your collective asses because they’re going to have to live with your ignorant choices. So, if you want your kids only knowledge of The United States of America coming from a history book, keep voting for those 3rd party candidates. Your progeny will curse you when they’re stuck with your mistakes!

        • Garym

          Meh. I voted for Romney, but lets face it, Romney and his campaign failed to reach out to the Tea Party, certain conservative groups and Libertarians. “Purists” have been burned by the Repubics too many times.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            Lets face it, we have all been burned worse by the Democrats.

            No excuses. If some failed to vote or voted for a candidate other than Romney, they voted for Obama.

          • drtkg

            I disagree. If there is no difference then I will not vote or I will vote for the Democrat just to crush Rove and grover. You are wrong stating that voting Republican is better than voting democrat. No it is not. Look at what we have now because of your ideas the people who claim to represent us DO not!!Is it worse my husband cheats on me or my friends Husband cheats? I trusted these so called Republicans and gave them my money!

          • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

            I’m with you on the general election. Once the choice is down to two candidates I vote against the Democrat. I wish I was voting for the Republican, but since Reagan I never have. I voted for Gov palin in 08, but with McCain I was voting against Obama.

            Many say that there is no difference between Dems and Reps. Very not true. Reps try to act like Dems a lot but just aren’t soulless enough to pull it off. When Dems have control they try and often do, choke the life out of personal liberty.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            That last paragraph nails it. Well said.

          • Thomas Darkvane

            How come none of you are discussing the fact that there was cheating going on. Look the States that BO lost, he lost big, even with all of the cheating they tried to do. But when you have precincts having votes that were 100% turn out and 115% votes to BO with none going to his opponent. You seriously have to ask yourself, that are you going to allow them to do this? Will you allow this to happen again next time. No matter what they tell you. You as a citizen can put a stop to this.

            When you see this happening pull out your phone, video them doing this. Call the news stations, papers and even go online to the sites like this and other places. This is how you get the cheating to stop. Bust their freaking ass and show the whole world. They wont be able to spin their way out of this. Also above all else. Hold the media’s feet to the fire. That is call in to the networks. Keep calling them and tell them of your displeasure of how they have covered these past 5 years. Tell them you are boycotting their advertisers. If just 1/2 of you here do this with the rest of us. They will listen when you feck with their pocket book.

          • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

            We did that last year … and I think most us agree with the points you are raising. I did not go down the fraud road with my posts on this thread as I felt we were a bit early in the cycle yet. I’m guessing we’ll spend more time on that topic as we move towards November 2014.

            Excellent post, thanks for keeping the issues alive.

          • liberalssuck

            Because in a lot of cases we can not prove it. Folks have went to jail for it already but those were very flagrant and hard to miss. We truly need voter reform and id’s and paper ballots. Harder to violate those.

          • Janice LEE

            Even if the cheating is proven, there is no way to stop it. Used to be only the inner cities had vote fraud, now it’s an epidemic.

            The Democrat’s “Kill Romney” campaign worked so well, they were able to confuse Libertarians and “More-conservative-than-thou” Republicans. Romney is as Conservative and Republican as they come. As much or moreso than Reagan. But they were able to confuse the votership in the swing states, at least, and they multi-voter, dead-voter, and out-of-district voter base were able to do their damage. Around 400,000 votes were all they needed.

          • liberalssuck

            I thought Romney, and yes I voted for him, went to soft on the president. We had him on the economy and a few other things, and he soft balled him.

          • Deborah Hallsted

            And what do you think would have happened if he attacked him more? With the slobbering sycophants of the press, they would have done anything to save their idol. It’s only now that his egregious incompetency’s have been unveiled by the Benghazi hearings, the NSA snoopings, his spying and control of the press, his obvious ACA lies, and his pettiness as the the war memorials, that people are willing to really take a look at his actions, rather than his oozing charm.

          • liberalssuck

            To be honest maybe more would have come out for Romeny. All I could really hope for. Look we removed to folks here in Colorado for refusing to listen to us. This was not big time organizations but actually grass root movements.
            So no different here, just larger scale. that is what I was hoping for.
            I do agree it is harder to fight with the msm all for obozo the clown. They are a propaganda tool for the WH.
