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
He is a Rat. Does that explain it? Rats get away with everything.
I think the glue he is using for that ridiculous toupe he wears has affected his thinking and speech!
Obviously Cruz is making progress with Hispanics, or Richardson would not be trying to cut him down at the knees.
No doubt they will continue to pile it on, but as much as I truly adore Herman, I believe Ted has a bit more depth and ability to fend for himself. I’ve seen Herman in person a couple times and he is an inspiring personality, but those darn women coming out of the woodwork was disappointing. I know sleazy alexrod was behind it, but the one he ‘supported’ without his wife’s knowledge, was too much.
I have a sense that Ted kinda shrugs and laughs at some of what is thrown around.
What Evuh Fat Ass.
You are so self conscious of your short comings you resort to stuffing your pants with national security documents.
Cruz sounds a hell of a lot more Hispanic than Richardson.
Then again, you are a Richardson Head...
Yeah, Cruz is an American.
Unlike Richardson, who is Mexican.
Almost every Hispanic in this country wants immigration reform.
No S**t Sherlock!
Poll: Less Than Half of Hispanics Support Citizenship
According to a Pew Research Center poll released last week, just 49 percent of Hispanics believe those currently living in the United States illegally should be allowed to become citizens."
Looking at the results of the primary after he was out - now you see why we were backing Cain.
He was smeared by Axelrod et al. That was your sign to get out and get behind the man. Why were they attacking him so fiercely - because they knew it would be the end of the Democrats.
Yo no entiendo. Datos? ¿Por que envias Datos?
And we can't let them interbreed either... then we'd have darkie-brownies.
Cruz’s father was Cuban! I guess thats Latino enough!
Actually, Cruz is Canadian. ;)
He was my favorite Kansas city Royals player
The Spanish to English dictionary has nothing on ‘envias’ or ‘Datos’ so I’m not sure what you’re asking me.
In other words Cruz is not Mexican or Puerto Rican ethnic
But rather Cuban
Too much peckerwood DNA
Those Galician and Canary islanders never figured on being too white
Or too well behaved
I'd be proud if he was my enemy.
Facts! Why you post facts?!
Zero’s dad was British subject and citizen of Kenya of the Luo tribe. His mother, Stanley Ann Dunham, is white and was born in Wichita, Kansas. So, does Bill Richardson have a thought about Zer0’s race? Or does race follow paternity?
“Does Richardson sound Hispanic to you?”
Yes, he’s Hispanic. He supports “immigration reform” or something.
Mia Love takes the cake though....she is not really female nor is she black...apparently....don't break the news to her....
Just for sheets and geegles.
If Obama’s black, Cruz is Hispanic.
Good question since Cruz is am American and not Canadian.
Okay --- some guy named "Richardson" is saying that the guy named "Cruz" shouldn't be defined as "Hispanic"? Wow.
In the mold of Ken Salazar, slimeball.
There is no such thing as a Hispanic. There are completely different ethnic, racial, cultural and national groups that were once part of the Spanish colonial empire.
