RICHARDSON ON CRUZ: 'I DONíT THINK HE SHOULD BE DEFINED AS A HISPANIC'
Breitbart ^ | 5 May 2013

Posted on 05/05/2013 4:18:56 PM PDT by mandaladon

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.

“I’m not a fan. I know [Ted Cruz is] sort of the Republican latest flavor. He’s articulate. He seems to be charismatic, but I don’t 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 he’s a force in the Republican political system, but I’m not a fan.”

ABC News: Do you think he represents most Hispanics with his politics?

“No, no. He’s anti-immigration. Almost every Hispanic in the country wants to see immigration reform. No, I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic. He’s a politician from Texas. A conservative state. And I respect Texas’ choice. But what I don’t like is… when you try to get things done, it’s okay to be strong and state your views, your ideology. But I’ve 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.

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.

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.

Good question! How much did he obstruct the investigations of Robert Vigil and Manny Arrogant? Throw Patricia Madrid in there as well.

I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic.

Just like Miguel Estrada and Alberto Gonzales.

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.
