In over her head

Jan Brewer, you may recall, arranged for a lavish ceremony to celebrate when she became Governor following the departure of Janet Napolitano.

Shortly thereafter the budget, of a state that has starved itself of tax revenues by implementing years of massive and poorly thought out tax cuts, hit her squarely in the face.

So she put out a 'five point plan' to deal with the budget. It was short of specifics but broadly outlined her budgetary priorities.

Since then she has assumed the approximate shape of an armadillo hoping not to get run over by an SUV, saying nothing and doing less about the budget.

It is pretty clear by now that far from exhibiting leadership, this is a politician who got where she did by throwing bricks at others' ideas, but now that she has the trowel and the mortar in her hand, she knows not how to build the house herself.

It's time to clearly and unequivocably say about Governor Brewer: NOT. UP. TO. THE. JOB.

That's what happens when you elect someone to be secretary of state because of her hairdo.

I don't think people voted for Brewer because of her hair. Israel Torres was an unabashed socialist. Why Ernest Hancock didn't win is (was) surprising.
