Richardson Joins the Obama-Nation
Posted by Ryan on March 21, 2008
New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has endorsed Obama today. Among other things, Richardson said of Obama:
“I believe he is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime leader that can bring our nation together and restore America’s moral leadership in the world…. As a presidential candidate, I know full well Sen. Obama’s unique moral ability to inspire the American people to confront our urgent challenges at home and abroad in a spirit of bipartisanship and reconciliation.”
I don’t know what planet Richardson’s on, but Obama has no significant record of bipartisanship, his radical preacher has raised serious questions about his true beliefs while observably hurting his mainstream appeal, making him look like a typical politician, and has made strong, uncompromising statements about his leftist policy positions including bombing our ally Pakistan and meeting with our sworn enemies in Cuba and Venezuela.
Also, Bill Richardson dropped out on January 10. It is now March 21. That’s quite a long time to figure out who you are going to put your support behind, especially since we’ve had two Super Tuesdays since then to think about it. I wonder if this is just because She Who Must Not Be Named would be forced to take Obama as her Veep, but Obama does not need her in the end. This whole endorsement could be Richardson campaigning to be Obama’s Veep by allowing the news to focus on something positive in regards to Obama for a change.
