    After attending the September 21st program with Tom Tancredo, what did you think? Will he have your vote? What will it mean to the Republican party here in Colorado if Dan Maes gets less than 30% of the vote? What if it's less than 10%? The world is definitely changing. We'd love to here what City Club members and guests who attended the program thought.

    I was impressed with Mr. T's articulate speaking style, and his grasp of many issues.  I wouldn't vote for him on a bet because of his extreme views that could wreck many aspects of Colorado's political/governmental structure, but beleve he is not the kook that sometimes comes across.  I think the Republican party will survive this Tea Pary season, and that Democrats might actually come out stronger in the long run.  Dan Maes and Ken Buck will hopefully have a short life in the public eye, and fade away as all fads eventually do. But I beleve Mr. T will be around as a gadfly for years to come.

    I was pleasantly surprised at the relaxed, low-key tenor of Tom's remarks.  I was MOST apprehensive that there might be anything but dialogue of that tenor either from Tom or from the audience.  Regardless of what one's political leanings may be, I felt that the Club did itself proud in living up to its motto of "To Inform, Not To Reform."  It was time well spent with a surprisingly down to earth speaker in spite of a popular (and unpopular?) press that usually portrays him to be otherwise. That doesn't mean I shall necessarily vote for him but he is worth a closer look.

    I was stunned that for someone with his background that he could not articulate a plan for the state; a posistion on 61, 62, & 101 or a coherent rationale for his election. I had not realized he was on JBC and given that information his presentation was even more disappointing.

    However from his viewpoint he should be pleased that he was given an opportunity to present his case "unfilteredd" by the media.

    I found Tom to be articulate, earnest, and engaging.  I would now consider voting for him and hope that Dan Maes will drop out of the race to provide Colorado voters with a clear choice.
