A defense of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and citizen candidates - National conservative | Examiner.com

A defense of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and citizen candidates - National conservative | Examiner.com

The last line in this little defense is a killer. I read it and just had to put my two cents in. Gov. Brewer's transparent authenticity? But let's delve into the meat of this article first. It boils down to don't judge a book by its cover. That is, TV just cannot adequately portray the substance of policy. So it doesn't matter that Brewer became absent minded in the debate. And I agree. God knows I'd be a basket case in that scenario. No question. And who wouldn't? So I don't have a problem with her embarrassing exhibition.

What I have a problem with is the substance...or lack thereof. The video of her question-and-answer session with the media showed this quite clearly. She was asked point blank about her bogus claim concerning headless bodies found in the Arizona desert. She paused. And paused. Paused some more. Then she just turned and ended the session. Just like that. How's that for substance? How's that for transparency? How's that for being authentic?

I don't think this whole immigration thing is about immigrants, to be truthful. I think it is about money. It so often is, isn't it? Gov. Brewer has been led around by her nose by the state senator with the big interest in those private, for-profit, prisons. Now that makes some sense. After all, Arizona border towns haven't shown an increase in violence or crime in ten years, so that can't be the real reason behind all this. The economic drain on our country can't be the real reason either (studies consistently show that illegal immigrants have a small positive influence on our economy).

Well, whatever the real reason behind this circus, it sure has nothing to do with transparency, nor authenticity.

In the last four months Jan Brewer has been caught lying, three times and counting.

The comments made on June 16, 2010, and June 27, 2010, clearly indicates that the Brewer says that immigrants are beheading people in the United States desert. She first ran away from the question and the press when confronted with the question. She finally when to FOX/ FAKE News to recant her lie.

When Brewer was confronted with the fact the two of her top Advisors (Paul Senseman, Chuck Coughlin) are lobbyist for “Private Prisons” giant CCA she first ran away from the question and the press.

In an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that her father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. Do you see a trend here?

Brewer signed into law SB 1070 Bill (Did she even read it?), lied about the crime rates in AZ (even Janet Napolitano knows that all crimes rates went down), and now we find out that she is in the pockets of PRIVATE PRISONS who stand to benefit with the increase Federal jailing, and thus they will pay her back, I wonder if it has to do anything about the fact that her son was transferred to a brand new prison, he was convicted for rape and sexual assault, I guess the fruit does not fall far the tree.
