The Art of Saying Nothing

Politicians are well-known for their ability to speak often without saying anything, and Governor Bill Richardson is a king among kings in this regard:

The conference’s keynote speaker was New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, who says undocumented immigrants in his state give more than they take, especially when it comes to taxes.

He also said there has to be a compromise between our nation’s security and the human rights of immigrants.

“Yes, we have to strengthen our border security, but we also have to protect the millions of immigrants who are already in America. Give them a fair chance, bring them out of the shadows. We’re not talking about an amnesty,” he said.

Well Governor, if you’re not talking amnesty, what are you talking about?
