Cory Gardner Absolutely Nailed By Debate Moderators For Personhood Stance

The Colorado Senate debate took an interesting turn when moderators actually functioned as journalists and exposed Cory Gardner's lies about his support for the Colorado personhood amendment.

These moderators could replace Chuck Todd on Meet the Press and it would completely change the show for the better.

Cory Gardner was hammered tonight by the moderators for his co-sponsorship of Colorado's personhood amendment. Try as he might, he just couldn't spin it to take himself off the hook.

First, the moderator informed Gardner that they would not be debating the purpose of the personhood amendment, which he characterized as a way to end abortion forever. Sternly, he told Gardner they would not be debating the character of the amendment, because the intent of it to end abortion is a fact.

He then tells Gardner that they are instead looking at what "this entire episode may say about your judgement more broadly. "A favorable interpretation would be that you have a difficult time admitting when you're wrong."

"A less charitable interpretation is that you're not telling us the truth," he concluded.

In other words, Senator-Hopeful Gardner, are you lying or are you just a stubborn SOB who can't admit it when you've screwed up?

Watch the rest. It's glorious, because the moderators are relentless, forcing Gardner to do the Republican Shuffle, where he pivots to the excuse that voters don't care about this issue. It's only the press that cares.

He should tell the women in this country that. To their face.
