Arizona Governor Stumbles in Debate State, National, International, posted by Amazon, a resident of the Pleasanton Meadows neighborhood, on Sep 2, 2010 at 3:39 pm
In a televised debate today, Arizona's Gov. Jan Brewer further showed that she suffers from a lack of clear thinking. We already knew that given her anti-immigration stance, but this just further confirms it

I think she sounded somewhat senile. She refused to take back the comment about beheadings on the border when the democratic opponent asked her to. She then refused to talk about it when approached by reporters - she was asked to accept that she made a mistake and that there are no beheadings, but she did not answer. If she truly believes in the beheadings, then she should have confirmed her statement when asked to take it back. She obviously knows she is wrong but refuses to accept it.
Who in their right mind would vote for this lady? Is this what we have to look forward from the GOP? That is truly scary because we need good candidates to run against the democrats.

Gov. Brewer finally admited she was "wrong" about all the beheadings in Arizona: "That was an error, if I said that," the Republican told The Associated Press on Friday. "I misspoke, but you know, let me be clear, I am concerned about the border region because it continues to be reported in Mexico that there's a lot of violence going on and we don't want that going into Arizona."
The AP article goes on to say:
"She said she was referring to beheadings and other cartel-related violence in Mexico in comments she made earlier this summer about decapitated bodies found in the state's southern region."
Interesting. In June, during a KPNX TV interview, she stated: "Oh, our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert, either buried or just lying out there, that have been beheaded."
Gov. Brewer's Republican/Tea Party supporters call that "word-smithing." I call it lying.
