Check out this language from today's Denver Post front page Sunday editorial about Colorado governor Bill Ritter's decision to issue an executive order allowing state workers to unionize:
When Coloradans elected Bill Ritter as governor, they thought they were getting a modern-day version of Roy Romer, a pro-business Democrat. Instead, they got Jimmy Hoffa.
...now we know he's simply a toady to labor bosses...a bag man for unions ...
His promise to usher in a new era of collaborative government . . . was nothing more than a sham. . . .
A governor with such early promise has squandered his future in order to keep his backroom promises to a few union bosses. . . .
Wow. I doubt the Rocky Mountain News, the "conservative" Denver paper, will be as harsh.
I just goes to show ya: The spurned lover is more dangerous than the woman that never really liked you that much in the beginning.
