Bill Richardson - A Closer Look

Bill Richardson is the governor of New Mexico and running for the Democratic nomination for president.

Here are some of Richardson's points that I like:
  • Will Remove all troops from Iraq ASAP (6-8 months)
  • Believes our presence in Iraq makes things worse
  • Against wall on border with Mexico
  • Would give a path to citizenship for illegal immigrants
  • Would erase No Child Left Behind
  • Universal healthcare and funding first reposnders
  • Lift Cuban embargo
  • Supports ENDA and would give same sex-partners benefits
  • Supports gay marriage (questions chance of it passing now)

Here are some I don't like:

  • Would reploy troops to Afghanistan
  • Would punish employers for hiring illegal immigrants
  • Pro-gun record and stance
  • Pro-death penalty
  • Said homosexuality is a choice and said gay slur on Imus show

Here are some irrelevant fun facts:

  • As you can tell by his name, he's Latino
  • Eats like there's no tomorrow, then does it again tomorrow
  • During a debate for mothers, called his own mother "a whore"
  • Thinks being a whore is a choice but has pro-whore record
  • No quere the Taco Bell
  • Middle name - Ned
