Skip to comments.Richardson: Clueless not candid

Perhaps Bill Richardson, governor of New Mexico and Democrat presidential candidate, and his handlers misunderstood: Candor, not cluelessness, is the new political-speak.
It is the only plausible explanation they can use following his abysmal performance on "Meet the Press" last Sunday, an appearance peppered with so many apologies and I-shouldn't-have-said-thats that one might think they were at a backwoods revival.
His "Meet the Press" mistakes came in every size -- big ones and small ones, even medium-sized ones: from immigration flip-flops to character flaws that reflect a propensity for exaggeration. Heck, he even flubbed his favorite baseball team.
Then came his trip to NBC's studios, and now he's like that beautiful woman whom all the men admire and long for from across the room -- until she opens her mouth and it becomes clear there's nothing there.
That's what NBC's Tim Russert did to Bill Richardson. He got Richardson to open his mouth and, it can be argued, the moment effectively ended Richardson's campaign.
Russert provided a small glimpse of what Republicans can do to Richardson if he is on the ticket. And Russert wasn't even trying.

Richardson - the Poster Child for Feckless Imbeciles - and he's running for President, and there are idiots that will actually vote for the bastard....
Now, THAT is spooky.
“With any luck no one will vote.”
Yeah theres a plan!!
I saw about two minutes of the interview and then I had to go barf.
What exactly did he say that was so bad? I didn’t see the interview and this article doesn’t provide many quotes.
What's funny is that Richardson is being touted at the Democrat with the "best resume" in the race!
Just show his mug being led around like a lap dog touring the U.S.S. Pueblo in N. Korea.
Couldn’t believe he allowed that to happen.
He said he was a Red Sox fan, and a Yankee fan. WTF? Either you support the forces of light, good and cleanliness, or your soul is possessed by the Satanic empire of the Bronx.
Clueless, not candid.
Sounds like the perfect Dem candidate.
Hillary has an office in the Bronx?!?!?! ;)
If his campaign doesn’t go well, watch for him to add a Hispanic last name, or his Latino mother’s name as in Mexican naming tradition, to make sure dimwitted voters get the point. Like the mayor of LA Villa added his wife’s name Raigosa to make one long last name (and sounding classier than just Villa) - aka Mayor Reconquista.
Really, he sounded like a clueless twit. He had absolutely nothing of substance to say and when a question was asked his answer was given so as not to take a stand on anything. Of course, the only thing he stood for was letting the illegals stay.
