Last night as I was watching the Fiorina/Boxer debate here in California for our senate seat another debate was underway in Arizona. Governor Jan Brewer faced her opponent Attorney General Terry Goddard in an hour long debate focusing on a number of issues. It’s what happened during the opening remarks, however, that has most people talking. In what was either stage fright or simply a brain freeze, Brewer drew a 13-second blank in the middle of her opening remarks. It is a painful thing to watch, and she has been mercilessly skewered for it all day. Interestingly, Obama’s mob continues its war against that state (and all others) day after day, yet Jan Brewer has a misstep of a few seconds and it becomes national news fodder.
It is worth remembering this is a woman not only trying to protect her state from invasion, but is also dealing with a federal government that is acting as though it is on the side of the invaders. Running a state in this country as we have a president working to destroy this nation must be difficult enough, let alone then having to deal with federal lawsuits, international lawsuits, death threats, and the murder of your constituents by illegal aliens and invading drug cartels. The environment Brewer faces on a daily basis presents a sort of personal and political pressure most of us would never be able to endure.
Her position on SB 1070 and subsequent work as governor has put her nicely ahead of her opponent, and she will survive this. Governor Brewer’s deer-in-the-headlights moment is a reminder that anything can happen during a campaign and reinforces the importance of not wavering in our support for this woman and the state of Arizona. Here’s one of the more decent pieces of coverage of the event, and the video itself.
The Fed Continues To Pressure Arizona & Governor Jan Brewer
In a recent debate that Arizona Governor, Jan Brewer conducted with opponent Democrat Terry Goddard on live TV, the pressure that the feds have been exerting shows. Appearing awkward and tired from the strain of defending her state from the continued vicious attacks by the federal government over the illegal immigration issue, the debate took an abrupt turn.
In a move that will undoubtedly delight liberals as they conduct their unwavering assault upon Arizona with boycotts and frivolous litigation, Governor Jan Brewer began the debate with a few positive statements about what her administration had been able to achieve, but was obviously under pressure…Showing the strain of the last few months and what the price of courage in her convictions and protecting the interests of her people has taken out of her, Governor Jan Brewer was obviously distraught and weakened. She abruptly ended the news interview amidst the hammering of reporters and her Democratic opponent, Terry Goddard.
