Littwin: It’s time for me to move on, but that doesn’t mean I’m going...

You say hello, and I say goodbye — Lennon-McCartney, but mostly Paul and not enough John.  I’ve got news, and so I’ll just spit it out. This is, sadly, my last column for The Colorado...

Littwin: Ken Buck is still leading the Colorado GOP — right off the cliff

Maybe the most shocking thing I can say about the release of the latest Great Depression-like unemployment numbers is that here in Colorado, Ken Buck still manages to hold down two full-time jobs. This is...
President Donald J. Trump, joined by Vice President Mike Pence, listen as Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Dr. Anthony S. Fauci delivers remarks during a coronavirus update briefing Thursday, April 16, 2020, in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room of the White House. (Official White House Photo by Andrea Hanks)

Littwin: As country begins to reopen, Fauci asks how much death we’re willing to...

You can call the reopening of America’s businesses an experiment. I’ll call it a gamble, and we know what the stakes are. I’ll let Dr. Tony Fauci, the most trusted person in America when it...

Littwin: Biden walks the #MeToo tightrope. Did he make it to the other side?

On Friday morning, Joe Biden went public, as many (including me) had insisted he should. And it went exactly as everyone expected. Meaning, of course, that we don’t know any more now than we did...

Littwin: Trump and Pence show America that only the good guys wear masks

Tuesday was, on balance, a horrible day, even by present-day standards. And I don’t have to tell you what that means — when any day can, without warning, morph into one in which the...

Littwin: Colorado is ready to slowly reopen for business, except in all the places...

For those of you concerned that Jared Polis might have jumped the gun in announcing his slow-walking reopening of the Colorado economy beginning on Monday, you’re absolutely right to worry. We not only have to...
Gov. Jared Polis shows off his new face mask on April 3, 2020. He is encouraging Coloradans to wear masks when out going grocery shopping or on other essential business. (Screenshot from @jaredpolis)

Littwin: The question for Polis and for all Coloradans – How much risk is...

Since I have been boldly predicting that Jared Polis would find it impossible to begin to reopen the Colorado economy this month, I must admit I was wrong. But I’ve been wrong before (see:...

Littwin: They’re coming to man the barricades and Trump is cheering them on

There’s apparently a reopen-the-economy demonstration coming to the state Capitol this weekend. I have no problem with protesters. In fact, back in my youth, I was on pretty intimate terms with the not-so-sweet smell...

Littwin: Trump vows to go all dictator on us, but he can’t even do...

I have a confession. Very recently — like maybe two days ago — I had mostly stopped watching Donald Trump’s daily coronavirus briefings, even though it’s my job. (Please, don’t tell the boss.) I...

Littwin: You make the forecast — could Colorado really be ready to reopen by...

This forecast just in: April 26 will come and April 26 will go, and Colorado will not, sadly, be reopened. It’s actually more of a prediction than a forecast, and I could definitely be wrong....
