ABC: Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson joined ABC News for a web interview after his appearance on the This Week roundtable on Sunday, answering viewer questions about his time as governor, his experience meeting with the Taliban, and his thoughts on Korean ruler Kim Jong-Un. When asked about Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, Richardson expressed his distaste for the senator.
Im not a fan. I know [Ted Cruz is] sort of the Republican latest flavor. Hes articulate. He seems to be charismatic, but I dont like his politics. I think he introduces a measure of incivility in the political process. Insulting people is not the way to go. But I guess hes a force in the Republican political system, but Im not a fan.
ABC News: Do you think he represents most Hispanics with his politics?
No, no. Hes anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I dont think he should be defined as a Hispanic. Hes a politician from Texas. A conservative state. And I respect Texas choice. But what I dont like is
when you try to get things done, its okay to be strong and state your views, your ideology. But Ive seen him demean the office, be rude to other senators, not be part of, I think, the civility that is really needed in Washington.

I’ve seen a number of people be uncivil to Cruz. Never seen Cruz being uncivil to anyone else.
Bill Richardson is such a slime ball..a disgusting slime ball..but what else is knew, he’s a Dem..thats all they know how to do, trash people they disagree with
Defining someone by his philosophy and character rather than by the color of his skin or the sound of his surname?
What a concept.
Richardson dimly begins to perceive what we’ve been saying all along.
How did Richardson dodge prison?
LOL! Richardson is a loon. He needs to go back to Pyongyang with his Nork buddies.
Translation: How dare a hispanic person leave the Democrat Plantation. I’m sure they will eventually Herman Cain him.
he’sfar more civil than any of your top a$$holes like biden and pelosi and reid are.
No sounds like a real son of a dick to me
Can’t let the darkies or the brownies leave the democrat plantation...
The Democrat definition of “being civil” in Washington is - give up. Cruz isn’t giving up. Tough cookie, Democrats.
Richardson is just another one of the Dems that’s scared that Cruz will get the Hispanic vote if he decides to run for higher office so they’re using whatever tricks they can to steer them away.
Dimwit prosecutor and even dimmer wit judges.... Richardson should be in jail....
“I have killed many Mexicans; I do not know how many, for frequently I did not count them. Some of them were not worth counting.”
Richardson is a maroon.
How did Richardson dodge prison?
Good question! How much did he obstruct the investigations of Robert Vigil and Manny Arrogant? Throw Patricia Madrid in there as well.
Just like Miguel Estrada and Alberto Gonzales.
Hey Bill, is Monica Lewinsky still on your Christmas card list?
He'll forever be known to me as the man Bill Clinton assigned, to offer a UN job to Monica Lewinski so she'd keep her mouth shut.
I agree. He's obviously Irish. /s
