Shortly after Susanna Martinez overwhelmingly became the first Hispanic female elected governor in our nation’s history, the current Hispanic governor claimed his fingerprints were not found on the weapon.
In the wake of Martinez’ eight-point win (54 to 46 percent) over Lt. Gov. Dianne Denish, Gov. Bill Richardson told reporters in Santa Fe that Election Day wasn’t an “indictment” of his years as governor.
In other words, the endless pay-for-play allegations, the lengthy investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s office – an investigation that led to Richardson denying himself a position in the Obama Administration – the budget deficit and the overall aroma of everything motivated by politics? Didn’t factor in. Wasn’t part of the voters’ equation.
Instead, Richardson demonstrated the acute deafness that’s become the trademark of the Democratic Party. From President Barack Obama down, the recent election had nothing to do with what’s gone on the last two years, or at least that’s the company line.
Obama allowed that he got hammered – took a shellacking, he said, during a press conference following the election. But it was because he didn’t do a good enough job explaining his successes.
