From Univision, the Lateeenoh network:
Former New Mexico governor and Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson admits to the Univision cyclops that he is very afraid of Marco Rubio. The Castro-hugging Richardson — whose propaganda exploits on behalf of the regime have been exposed here on Babalu numerous times (see this sample from last year) — broke free from the talking points memo of the Obama campaign and admitted that Marco Rubio could siphon off some of the Hiss-Panic vote despite the fact that he is a Cuban-American and therefore also wrong on just about every issue that matters to Hiss-Panics.
As former SCTV superstar Count Floyd would say: AWWWOOOOOOOOO, ARRROOOOOOOOOO! This is so scary, kids. Make sure your Lateeenoh parents get out to vote, and remind them to vote for Obama early and often, in as many different precincts as possible. Remind them they won’t need any identification. AWWWOOO-HAROOO-AAWHOOOOOO! HAA-HOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
To get rrreallly scared, kids, catch some classic Count Floyd Monster Chiller Horror Theater here (“Doctor Tongue’s Evil House of Pancakes 3-D Special”) and here (“Blood Sucking Monkeys from West Mifflin, Pennsylvania”). Please watch….I prrromise, you will be scaaared out of your pants!
Bill Richardson: “I’m afraid of Marco Rubio.”
By Emily Deruy
Richardson said that Rubio could win over some Latinos, but that President Obama deserves their support.
Former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson says that he is afraid of Marco Rubio’s ability to cut into President Obama’s Latino support.
Richardson, a Mexican-American who ran against Obama in 2008 for the Democratic presidential nomination, said that the freshman Florida senator is one of the Republican Party’s fastest-rising stars who could make the GOP more appealing to Latino voters both in this election and in future ones.
“I like him. And yes, I’m afraid of him because I think he is an attractive politician, well prepared. And he is Cuban-American and to me that is positive,” Richardson said in an interview on Univision’s Al Punto. “Because I want all Hispanics in the Republican Party, in the Democratic Party, whether Latin Americans, Central Americans, Cubans, Mexicans, I want us to unite.”
Richardson went on to say that if Mitt Romney chooses him as his running mate, Rubio could steal votes away from Obama in battleground states with large Latino voter populations, though Richardson said it wouldn’t be enough to outright defeat Obama.
“I think he is someone, for example, in states like Nevada, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and certainly Florida, could give Romney votes that he doesn’t have now. I don’t think putting him on the ticket will be enough to defeat President Obama. But he is an attractive politician.”
Rubio has long attracted buzz as a potential running mate for Romney, both for his appeal to conservative voters and his potential to connect with Latinos, who strongly prefer Obama over his Republican opponent.
