Gov. Bill Richardson is catching flak in the blogosphere for amassing a $3 million re-election campaign treasury.

Daily Democrats come up to me with horror stories about Fat Bill. Some of the tales are political and others personal about the Governor. As a life-long Democrat the political tales anger me and the personal ones sicken me.
The Large Lard is getting such a reputation that soon his chances for President will go from slim to none. That may be the only time I use the word slim in referring to Governor Doughnut.
Richardson comes from the “Buffalo wing” of the Democratic Party. His politics and personal morality makes even Bill Clinton look like an alter boy. I hate the way he sold-out the Democratic National Convention and threw the election for his CIA buddies. El Puerco couldn’t even carry New Mexico. How can one Governor be so Fat and Lame at time?
Governor Tons-of-Fun is too short and fat to be even Vice President. And the Hispanic vote will be of no consequence in the next presidential election. In New Mexico the ship of State has a portly Captain name Richardson who only know how to make turn to the right …so the ship keeps going in circles.

Eric Scott is my real name, Miguel Vigil, "Edge" is my nickname. Why don't you release your's? Real name that is...
"Miguel Vigil" would you deny me my right of free speech? And if you don't like my poetry, as you call it, it is probably because it is far too truthful for you to handle. Quite frankly; that is not my problem, so deal with it or skip it and remain in the dark closet which seems to be your reality.
Everyone is on to the tiny bitter crowd of losers that inaccurately slam Richardson with inuendo, lies, and political slander.
I would point to Governor Richardson's solid, positive, and very real accomplishments. First I would reiterate what R. Vigil posts below and then I would add Governor Richardson's proven skills as a Diplomat. Our Nation sorely needs his highly regarded expertise at this time.
I would also document here, the incredible constituent services performed (which I personally witnessed) while he honourably served Northern New Mexico, as Congressman, for over a decade.
In as far as predicting his future political accomplishments, I believe Richardson would bring the majority of Hispanics nationwide into the Democratic Party. And for the Republicans, he will certainly bring them in as they slowly begin to realize what a problematic agenda they have endorsed.
Of course Governor Richardson would not be attacked as he is, if he were not a forminable, accomplished contender

Better to go in Over Capitalized than Under.
Any Dems complaining about that probably need replaced by a Repub.
Now if Bill can get the small businesses climate in NM in the same position...Well then he's really on to something.

Blubber Bill is a white-bread tortilla Democratic. Politically he has done nothing but stuff his own face and super-size Government.
The only time Lardo Richardson is not bellying-up to the publicity table is when it’s about doing some work. He was a no-show when the New Mexican tried to do something about the achievement gap in education. [ ] (He) acts like the CIA is paying his salary rather than the People of New Mexico. [ ] (Him) and his sell-out Hispanic menu.

Bill is NOT "fat". That is just the physical manifestation of ambition. I'll bet you're one of those guys that wants to change the Constitution so we can have Ahnold for Prez. The only thing HE knows how to do is show off a suit.

Even the Koreans when they came to New Mexico said they were here for the food. Governor Gordo is fat with power. It has swollen his head; put a bulge on his middle of the road politics.
I think I should be able to call him Governor Grasoso because the way he greases the wheels of Government. Certainly Governor Crisco. And why the Web Ed. cut my Korean name for the State's chief officer and cook is beyound me.
I am not in favor of "Ahbold for Prez" but I would be in favor of our Fat Bill moving to California and running for Governor there

John Coventry, weight jokes were for Fergie. And in cyberspace, there is the ability of proof, where's yours?

Bravo Mr. Coventry, somehow the web editor let your "heavy" language through but always censures mine. Oops, I shouldn't say that, he will zap yours out too now.

The purpose of the discussion on the Democracy for New Mexico website was not to create a personal attack on the Governor-but to try to clarify wth his office how his PAC dovetails with the Democratic Party of New Mexico-at a time when all of the energy of the democrats should be to defeat the republicans in 2006-we need to be working together.

Edge, in cyberspace you can prove what?
That Richardson is the fattest Governor is the Country or that the CIA paid him off to throw the last election?
Bill Tubby-Guv is in for an eternity of "weight jokes" or worse. If I were him I would be worried that he would be facing a primary battle not on the issues but on his character, his arrogance, his racism and his weight.
In cyberspace you can't prove that Richardson ever mentioned Abu Ghriab no less that he condemn it. You can prove that he pandered to the military but there is no proof that the Big Large rico Richardson ever opposed the war. It's just like with Lieberman, if you're a Democrat you better contribute to Fat Bill's campaign while he still call himself a Democrat.

OK, enough with the weight jokes, please. It gets old, and it doesnt contributre anything to any substantive discussion. And don't give me a hard time about this either!, lol

Oh man Web Ed, now you are really being unfair. JC does contribute. He gives reasons why he does not like the guv at the same time as calling him fat. We all get to call our politicians names. They are our public servants. You sound like that guy in the south who wants to silence Mayer just because you don't like JC calling the guv names. Is treason next?
What was next was the very first comment I made today on the Mexican's Web site was cut in it's entirety.
