      That'll never happen.

      See, Richardson recognizes the second amendment rights of Americans, and has said so. Obama, on the other hand, is on record as wanting to ban the sale or transfer of ANY semi-automatic firearm, which means every single semi-auto pistol dating back past the 20th century. Got a grandfather with an heirloom WWII Colt 1911? Sorry, can't have it, gov't will add it to their collection or "destroy" it, meaning it goes into a politico's collection. No transfer. Someone wants something for target shooting or home defense? Sorry, you're back to 1873 or so, with revolvers only. Only criminals can have semi-auto pistols.

      Richardson would have nothing to do with someone like that.

      Oh, yes, and while Obama's been wandering around giving fluffy motivational speeches, Richardson went and possibly saved millions of lives by brokering peace deals in Darfur.

      All style, or all substance? Hm.

      •  Clearly you like Richardson. (0+ / 0-)

        That's cool...America, and all...

        I have heard Obama on several occassions and this "fluffy motivational speeches" meme is undeserved and unfair.  If you tag him with that, I can only imagine how you will respond to the rest of the people who really don't say anything.

        Maybe you are a one or two issue voter.  Again, that's cool.  But many, many of us need more to vote for than just "what specific actions people have taken" - we need a leader who is more than the sum of the parts.  I don't know much about Richardson, but Obama is the one for me.

        A little about me here. -8.63, -7.44
