Shame on Brewer

A year ago, Brewer was a hero amongst us Conservatives. She was potentially committing political suicide. But someone had to, and supposedly, she was the right person for the job. But, not all stories are heroic, and many fall short of their hyped up potential (Fox anyone?). Jan Brewer could have been the Governor that made it all happen. She could have led Arizona on a path that other states could only dream of. But, like so many other brave politicians, she has become just another name in the long, long list of conservatives that has let me.

In case you haven't heard, Brewer vetoed two very important bills. I add the video later. But there is no excuse for it. Even though I strongly disagree with it, I can slightly understand why she would veto the bill allowing guns on campus. But a bill requiring presidential candidates to prove thier citizenship? Why? It was pressure. She caved. Pure and simple. And I hope that the base in Arizona remembers that. We aren't in the business of electing the usual politicians. No. We're electing those that will actually do what they say and say what they mean. Politics as usual is dead. If you don't understand that, don't run. We wont elect you.
