« 2008 Presidential Contender: Sam Brownback | Main | A 401(k) as Unemployment Insurance? »

January 26, 2007

Hi there, I am one of a group of Richardson supporters who are building a grassroots website for his presidential candidacy and I just wanted to say I enjoyed your post, and like your blog, very interesting, and true to form, common sense. I did want to make the one correction though, Governor Richardson won re-election by over 69% of the vote, carrying every county but one. I have witnessed as a resident of the state first hand how his policies which are the perfect balance of progressive and conservative have moved New Mexico in the right direction. I believe he can win this thing, but the money is going to be really challenging. Please feel free to stop by and check out our site, we have a coming soon page up now but once we finish the coding this weekend it will be up and running on Monday, fully interactive and if I may say so myself really snazzy!

If you would email me, too, I am interested in learning about "Blogburst"!

Thank you so much Terry!

If a Democrat wins in 2008 then I hope that it is Richardson. He is defintely the best out of the current group of Democratic candidates in my opinion.


I've been a lifelong fan of Richardson. When I first heard of him and his childhood upbringings in Mexico City I was very impressed. It inspired me that a fellow Hispanic could achieve that level of success (at that time running for congress) and helped me to fight my way out of poverty and drug and gang infested barrio and into college. Now many of my friends I grew up with are either dead or in jail and had it not been for the early inspiration to make something out of myself I may have followed that fate. I owe much of what I have to watching a NM political rally on PBS one day skipping school. I have watched his career and always chuckled at the way the humble Hispanic in ill fitting suits could convince hardened killers to free hostages. Hes done many good things in NM and I hope he gets the nomination to do the same for the country.

Blog Summary

  • No-holds-barred commentary (and humor) by Terry Mitchell on a variety of subjects such as current events, society and culture, politics, personal finance, technology, religion, health and well-being, sports, media issues, and trivia.

    His blog entries have been picked up or linked to by mainstream news services like Reuters, CNN, Wall Street Journal Online, USA Today, the Houston Chronicle, the Austin American-Statesman, the Dallas Morning News, the Chicago Sun Times, the Palm Beach Post,, Northwest Florida Daily News,, WWL-TV, WMUR, and WNBC. In addition to his blogging, he is currently a regular columnist for and American Chronicle. He has also written over 100 feature-length articles that have appeared on numerous Web sites.

    In this blog, Terry will never miss an opportunity to assail political correctness or take pot shots at the conventional foolishness.

    In this age of information overload, Terry knows that most people don't have time to read long, rambling blog entries. Therefore, he serves up most of his posts on this blog in small, bite-size portions. You'll appreciate his cut-to-the-chase writing style that gets straight to the point without the unnecessary and boring lead-ins.

    Also, Terry makes following promises in regard to this blog that very few bloggers will make:

    1) Posts which are always family-friendly and free of profanity and vulgarity (despite this fact, this blog is never boring and never shies away from controversy).

    2) A reasonable effort to assure proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, capitalization, and sentence structure.

    Readers are free to comment, both pro and con, on any post. However, any comments that include profanity or name-calling will be promptly deleted. One who cannot defend his position on a given issue without resorting to such tactics is, at best, too ignorant to adequately defend his position, and at worst, lacking a defensible position altogether.

    For Terry's biography (in his own words), see the "ABOUT" link on the left side of this page, just below his photo.
