Cory Gardner gave this week's GOP address.

He lamented President Obama and Senate Democrats' obstruction — and called for an "all-of-the-above" energy strategy:

President Obama could learn a thing or two from Colorado when it comes to energy development. In fact, constituents regularly tell me we need more Colorado in Washington — and less Washington in Colorado. And I agree. Colorado supports building the Keystone pipeline because we know its benefits don't end with its ability to create new jobs. The pipeline would be a major step forward in making us North American energy secure.

"Every Senate Democrat on the ballot this cycle voted to give the president the authority to grant executive amnesty." We wrote that about two weeks ago.

Yesterday, it became clear just how worried Senate Democrats are about their vote.

Here's the backstory:

  • In July, Senator Jeff Sessions forced a vote that put Senate Democrats on the record in support of Obama’s proposal earlier this summer. Only Senator Joe Manchin joined Republicans to try and prohibit the president’s actions. Even Senate Democrats who later claimed to oppose Obama's executive actions — Pryor, Shaheen, Hagan, Begich and Landrieu — voted with Harry Reid and Chuck Schumer to block the motion and support executive amnesty.

  • The president realized that his push to subvert the law and grant amnesty was failing to motivate the liberal base. It was also moving independents to vote against Democratic Senators. So, President Obama backpedaled, but it didn't matter — since Democratic senators were already on record.

  • Still under fire, desperate Senate Democrats on the ballot this year tried to use a procedural vote as a "do-over." National Review reported what happened:

    Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) wanted to offer an amendment opposing the orders, but Senate Democrats thwarted the attempt. ... Fifty senators voted for Sessions’ motion and fifty voting against, so the proposal failed. ... Four embattled Democratic lawmakers — North Carolina Senator Kay Hagan, Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen, and Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor — voted with Sessions after opposing the same motion earlier this year. Senator Joe Manchin (D., W. Va.) voted with Sessions both times.
    Mark Begich, meanwhile, "saved the day for D's": He allowed Obama to grant executive amnesty, tweeted Politico's Manu Raju.

  • As if the Democratic Senators' motives weren't obvious enough, Politico reported more details:

    All the Democrats who sided with Republicans — except for Manchin — waited until the last minute to cast their vote when it became clear the motion would fail. And before she voted, Hagan was seen talking to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and then huddled off the floor with Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.), the chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.
  • There's just one problem — each of these vulnerable Democratic senators already voted to give President Obama the authority to grant executive amnesty. All Senate Democrats like Mary Landrieu, Jeanne Shaheen, Kay Hagan, Al Franken, Mark Pryor, and Mark Begich did yesterday was remind voters that in addition to giving Obama blanket authority to grant executive amnesty, they also can't be trusted.
