Times are tough for Colorado’s ski resorts, so Vice President Pence’s vacation to the Vail area should be a good advertisement and reassure tourists that vacation travel can be safe, whether traveling with family or regular community.
Or it could be an opportunity for Democrats to show how unwelcome Republicans have become in the Vail Valley.
This is exactly what Democratic MP Kerry Donovan is doing on Twitter to destroy her tourism-dependent local economy by destroying the VIP tourist who dares to spend Christmas in Edwards, her hometown.
Donovan first accused Pence of canceling bar music during après-ski because she needed her music while chugging beer and arguing with the sheriff over gun control.
That was their first priority, bars, which Governor Polis is blaming for the closure, by the way.
Donovan then got mad at the nation’s second most powerful man because her event promoter buddy had to lay off workers because he could no longer produce events where she could drink beer.
Again the fault of their own leader, Governor Polis.
When Donovan finished complaining that there was no place to party, she turned her hazy attention to reduced school enrollment, trying to blame the Veep for it too.
It is either fraudulent or it is simply ignorant.
Locally elected school boards in each county make home learning decisions, which has led parents to go to school, form pods, or move to private schools.
All of this accuses Donovan Pence of not taking Pence seriously a year ago.
It might seem like a year ago Donovan, but last Christmas Vail didn’t ask for relief from Polis’ color-coded COVID wheel crippling small businesses that support the mountain.
Rather than embarrassing her tourist-dependent city, Donovan should pay more attention to the hundreds of executive ordinances that allow her and the Democrat-controlled Polis lawmaker to pass without any oversight.
