First there was Giuliani's "intergalactic attack", then Kucinich's visions of UFOs, and now, Richardson? Apparently our Presidential candidates are going "alien crazy".
On Friday, Bill Richardson entered the 'clandestine' UFO debate during a town hall meeting when a citizen asked him about the 1947 Roswell UFO mystery. Was it a plane, a weather balloon, a UFO? Who knows...but Richardson is prepared to get to the bottom of it.
"Answering questions at a town hall meeting Friday, a Dell employee asked Richardson about the 1947 incident in which many people still believe a flying saucer landed near the eastern New Mexico town.One has to love it. Our candidates are talking 'alien'...again. There is something interesting in their answers, though. The answers strongly reflect their campaign vision. Take Giuliani, if encountered with a UFO...he'd "attack" it. Kucinich would "talk" to it, and for Richardson...he just wants answers, he's the consummate student, diligently checking facts.
"I've been in government a long time, I've been in the cabinet, I've been in the Congress and I've always felt that the government doesn't tell the truth as much as it should on a lot of issues," said Richardson, who is governor of New Mexico.
"When I was in Congress I said (to the) Department of Defense ... 'What is the data? What is the data you have?' "
He was told that the records were classified.
"That ticked me off," he said, as the crowd laughed.
"What do you want me to do? You want me to open up all those files?" he asked the alien enthusiast, who answered that he did.
