Conservative Republican and CD 4 hopeful Tom Lucero
hosted a campaign breakfast Tuesday in Loveland at a strip-mall cafe and ended up talking to eight likable, earnest people there about the need to affect major cultural change if they were ever going to restore a sense of personal responsibility in the United States and succeed in abolishing income taxes and the Internal Revenue Service.
"We have to replicate Obama's Chicago-style politics, Saul Alinsky's 'Rules for Radicals,'
if we're going to beat the [Democrats]," he told the small group of almost-all retirees. They nodded in agreement but said nothing.
Lucero faces a tough slog between now and Election Day 2010, and he knows it.
