Bill Richardson on Ted Cruz: “I Don’t Think He Should Be Defined as a Hispanic” (Video)
Bill Richardson joined ABC News today for a web interview. The former governor had this to say about Senator Ted Cruz,
“I’m not a fan… I don’t think he should be defined as a Hispanic.”

From the video:
“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…. 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.”
Typical leftist. If you can’t beat them then dehumanize them.
