If you live in Montana (or Wyoming), and you care about the direction of our country- you need to not only be concerned about the US Senate race in Montana, you also need to keep an eye on Colorado. 

And it is in Colorado where conservatives are eyeing a new opening against radical environmentalist Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO).  This, thanks to some offensive remarks by former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg who cozied up to Colorado Democrats and President Obama on gun control.  

Daily Caller: Bloomberg Angers Many With Elitist Comments About Rural Colorado

“In Colorado, we got a law passed. The NRA went after two or three state senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads,” said Bloomberg in the interview which is set to be published Monday. It was accidentally posted at the magazine’s website Wednesday, but was taken down.
“Michael Bloomberg is absolutely out of touch with the values of Pueblo,” said state Sen. George Rivera, according to the Colorado Observer. “In Pueblo, we value our Second Amendment rights and we don’t appreciate East Coast elites stereotyping us as some area so remote that we don’t even have roads.”


Challenger Rep. Cory Gardner, R-Colo., is calling Sen. Mark Udall, D-Colo., to “follow his words with actions” and keep former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s money out of Colorado politics. The request comes after the former bashed on the Colorado’s gun law. “In Colorado, we got a law passed,” the mayor told Rolling Stone. “The NRA went after two or three state Senators in a part of Colorado where I don’t think there’s roads. It’s as far rural as you can get. And, yes, they lost recall elections. I’m sorry for that. We tried to help ’em. But the bottom line is, the law is on the books, and being enforced. You can get depressed about the progress, but on the other hand, you’re saving a lot of lives.” Soon after the article was released, both Gardner and Udall condemned the attack. Udall’s spokesperson said Bloomberg was “way off base” and that he should stay to what he knows best “traffic jams and tiny sodas.” However, Senate Majority PAC, a Bloomberg funded group, has already spent millions of dollars attacking Gardner. “While I am pleased that Senator Udall followed my lead and rejected Mayor Bloomberg’s outrageous statements, he must follow his words with actions,” Gardner said in a statement. “If Senator Udall is sincere in his belief that the Mayor should stay out of Colorado, he must immediately appeal to those groups to end their negative Bloomberg-funded spending sprees.”

Someday Old Doomberg is going to let his alligator mouth overload his hummingbird hinny one too many times. Here is a guy who has armed security everywhere he goes and yet hates guns? We protect our president with guns, guys like him with guns, celebrities, jewelry stores, banks, federal buildings, courts, congressmen, governors, etc., all protected by guns. And yet when it comes protecting that which is most precious to us, our children, what do we do?
We put up a sign near their school that reads:

Entering a Gun Free Zone.

Now how stupid is that?
