Today Governor Ritter held a press conference to campaign against Amendment 46: Civil Rights Initiative. People’s Press Collective has the 4 minute video:
Here are some of the highlights:
“but Amendment 46 undercuts Colorado and destroys years of progress in education, in health care, in workforce development. All efforts that are important to Colorado’s hardworking families and family owned business. It is, and like it is, and like it or not, excuse me, we still have a way to go to achieve equality in the work place and in the classroom.”
That’s funny, I always thought equality meant no special rules for certain individuals or groups. I bet the Governor also believes that some animals are more equal than others.
“Amendment 46 is a California import. Now, we import a lot of things from California. Right? We import wine. We import, uh, I can’t think of other things, but we import wine.”
I can think of other things… how about socialists? Communists? California liberal zombies?
“We don’t need a Californian coming here to this state and saying, these people can’t play, when you’re out you’re out and you can’t get in.”
I’m not sure where he’s going with this one. Maybe he’s talking about his second term?
Bonus Material! Ritter took questions.
First up, the Colorado Civil Rights Initiative people asked him about their handout they had at the press conference:
“I haven’t used letterhead to, uh, promote, uh, an initiative. So I’ll have to see what the hell, I’ll have to see what they’re talking about.”
One more question asked Ritter if he’s going to start ad campaigns against 46. He’s not sure. He needs to ask his boss.
