The law should have beeen revised to allow the SOS to send to the legislature and governor any serious concerns regarding the vetting of a presidential candidate so that the reports could be debated and voted on. That would have been enough to allay the governor’s concerns about “one person” controlling the results.
This is disappointing indeed. Of course, before Brewer took on the Obama Administration over the border, she did not have a sparkling conservative track record. Arizona is a little like SC, in that it is such a conservative state that the leadership tends to get comfortably moderate because they’ll almost always win elections anyway. Funny how that works out sometimes. And sad.
Very interesting point about Brewer as SOS.
Supposedly, the Arizona legislature passed the bill by sufficient margins to over-ride a veto by the Governor.
Let’s see what they do now.
Traitors in our midst. They’re everywhere!
Here is Brewer’s largest problem. Fron Wiki Brewer was “Born in California” that alone makes her suspect.
Arizona can still VETO OVERRIDE brewer.
I really like Brewer. Does she do everything exactly as I would like? Well, no. But she is a spunky one and I support her whole-heartedly. If all our governors were as courageous as she is, the US would be in great shape.
It just proves the GOP and the dem elites are all in this together. I’ll never again vote for the lessor of two eviils.
Obama is president and will be president in 2013 because of people like Brewer and McCain and the Bushes.
IMHO all of the proposed laws dealing with candidate qualifications are valid and there is no reason to either vote against them or veto them.
Every state constitution designates their respective Secretary of State as the person/office responsible for their individual ballot integrity. i.e., the people listed on the ballet are real people and are qualified to run for the offices.
All these bills do is to reduce the latitude the individual Secretaries can employ in validating the candidates. That's right - REMOVES the ability for a SINGLE PERSON to decide who can and cannot be listed on the ballot.
In 2008, in Arizona, one person made that decision. Her decision was influenced by the MSM and the liberals. When this bill becomes law, in 2012, in Arizona, the decision as to who can be on the ballot will reflect the majority of the state legislators in 2010, not one person acting alone.
“A group backed by Soros is gearing up to steal the 2012 election for President Obama and congressional Democrats by installing left-wing Democrats as secretaries of state across the nation. From such posts, secretaries of state can help tilt the electoral playing field.”
I could see vetoes for both bills, if she had articulated these objections: (1) "Birther Bill" -- it doesn't address the 'natural born' requirement for candidates running for president of the United States; and (2) "Guns on Campus Bill" -- it does not allow guns in classrooms...what's the point?
These objections I might have sympathisized with, but not the inarticulate, sorry excuses she gave. Is her brain burned out from alcohol? What's with her halting disconnect twist brain and lip?
