Yahoo! News just broke the news this morning.
Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, whose state is struggling to recover from last month’s historic flooding in the midst of the government shutdown, says watching the Washington discord from afar has only served to discourage him from considering a 2016 presidential run.
“It’s … daunting to look at how divisive the relationships are in Washington right now,” said Hickenlooper, who has lately been dispelling claims that he’s seeking higher office in 2016 after gaining national attention within the Democratic Party for his push for stricter gun laws in Colorado.
Hickenlooper sat down with “Top Line” behind the scenes of The Daily Beast’s “Hero Summit” in Washington and described the government shutdown as a “tragic failing” that is choking off services that are essential to the health and safety of people in Colorado.
“It’s amazing,” Hickenlooper said. “[If] you want to start appreciating all the things that the federal government does for those people who are most at risk, have a major disaster and then take away all those services.”
Worse yet, just try going through one without a big fat joint in that cozy, dry-as-a-bake-sale-cake governor’s mansion every night.
Colorado: Nil sine Ganja.
That’s Hickenlooper. Two Ls… er, Os. I was thinking of Hellkenthrobber.
