Hickenlooper can't answer the tough questions

A Facebook page titled Mayor Teflon John Hickenlooper's Glass Jaw appeared today...




The Denver mayor needs to figure out soon how to answer tough questions because many more are coming his way as he runs for governor of Colorado.

As highlighted on Complete Colorado and blogged about by Rossputin and Ben DeGrow, Hickenlooper seemed to get hot under the collar on the Caplis and Silverman show yesterday. Caplis and Silverman had Hickenlooper on to discuss his failure to disclose to the media the non-profit organizations to which he had donated.

We are starting to see a trend of Hickenlooper dancing around straightforward questions. On April 15, Hickenlooper went on the Mike Rosen Show on 850 KOA and got defensive when asked about his praise of Van Jones, first reported by WhoSaidYouSaid. Denver Post columnist Vincent Carroll analyzed his explanation two days later.
