Richardson’s gaffe and more — A comprehensive update on Latino appointments in the Obama Administration

December 11th, 2008 · 18 Comments

Here is Seneca’s latest update on Latino appointments in the Obama Administration: Bill Richardson appears to have committed a big blooper. In a recorded video being bicycled around the internet, he states in Spanish that President Elect Obama is “un inmigrante.” Plainly, this feeds the anti-Obama bloggers, pundits, critics, bigots and other enemies of the newly […]

Hopefully, […]
