Arizona Governor completely loses it

Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer made headlines this week, but I can assure you it was not positive at all.  All the buzz that is surrounding her happens to be regarding the disastrous debate performance that she put on this Wednesday against her opponent, Democratic Attorney General Terry Goddard.  Below is the introduction, which shows that Brewer completely lost her bearings(similar to John McCain in the 2008 presidential election).

Brewer has been thrust into the spotlight because of her decision to sign Arizona’s tough new immigration law(SB 1070).  Sadly, she stops at nothing, even lies, to shape the debate regarding the immigration law. She has stated that, “law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded.  This false claim was quickly refuted, thank God.

The Arizona Guardians Dennis Welch was one who has called Brewer out on these lies and distortions.  In his investigation of the claim, “officials with six counties in the state, including four from other counties that have a border with Mexico say they have never heard of such attacks.  Furthermore, many of the officials stated that they have never  investigated an immigration related crime in which someone’s head had been cut off.”

The worst part about this is that Brewer has refused to walk back the lies that she has been telling regarding the beheadings, even in the office of evidence that proves this claim is not true. Below is a run-in she had with some reporters after the debate, who were attempting to get answers from her about the beheading claims.

Not surprisingly, Brewer is comfortably ahead in the polls. In the latest Rasmussen poll, she was pulling 57% of voters, compared with 38% for Goddard.  Her stance on the immigration bill(which is popular in Arizona) has helped her surge in the polls.  Funny thing is, I believe Brewer’s support of the bill was purely political.  She was running in a tough Republican primary, and realized that a bill such as HB 1070 would burnish her credentials with hard core conservatives.  Looks like the bet paid off.
