Jan Brewer
If you missed the hour-long gubernatorial debate on Horizon last night, you missed a train wreck performance by Gov. Jan Brewer.

The hour-long session with the Brewer (Republican), Terry Goddard (Democrat), Barry Hess (Libertarian) and Larry Gist (Green) started off bad for Brewer and just kept getting worse.

Brewer kicked it off by blanking out for several seconds during her opening statement and laughing nervously. When it seems like she's finally pulling it together, she exclaims: "We have did what was right for Arizona" and "I have really did the very best that anyone could do..." (Check it out on youtube)

And she wrapped it all up by leaving the studio and bolting when reporters confronted her about her "headless bodies in the desert" comment.

Not pretty.

Horizon host Ted Simons deserves props for nicely refereeing Brewer and Goddard during the debate. He asked candidates about education, health care and the state budget, but most of the debate centered on immigration. Shocker.

Goddard performed well, as even some of his haters had to concede in their tweets.

@Surprise_Jester: Goddard confirms what what we learned from Obama. You can be articulate and a dumbass at the same time.

Here are more tweets posted about last night's debate by all nine people who were watching.
ON OVERALL PERFORMANCE
@brahmresnik: AZGOV 25 minutes in, Goddard finding his voice. Sounding more like guy who's down 20 points. Now tweaking Brewer, after she toyed with him  
@NTinAZ: it is no wonder @GovBrewer only wants to debate @TerryGoddardAZ once! Good work Terry!
@kbondelli: Goddard just cleaned up the #azgov debate

ON ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION
@brahmresnik:
AZGOV Hess wants to get off 1070. Brewer won't drop that bone.
@azcinsider: Libertarian Barry Hess starts debate by saying SB1070 shouldn't be the focus of the campaign. 'We're facing a depression,' he says.
@azcinsider: Goddard pivots on 1070, trying to turn the attention to his record as attorney general. He says he's focused on border security.
@ExJon: Brewer won the gubernatorial election as soon as she signed SB1070.
@JimSharpe: If only the law came with a teleprompter... RT @ExJon: Brewer won the gubernatorial election as soon as she signed SB1070.
@azcinsider: Wild and woolly now as Brewer laughs at Goddard and tells him he doesn't want to secure the border.

ON BEHEADINGS
@brahmresnik: AZGOV You need to stop saying things that are untrue and defame our state, Goddard tells Brewer.  
@brahmresnik:  AZGOV Goddard calls on Brewer to say there are no beheadings. Gov ignores, calls on Goddard to renounce unions.  
@azcinsider: Goddard lands some shots on Brewer over her 'beheadings' statements. Brewer responds by criticizing Goddard over union support of boycotts.
@brahmresnik: Brewer cuts off reporters questions after 90 seconds. Refuses to answer whether she'll take back beheading statements.

GOD IS A REPUBLICAN?
@brahmresnik: AZGOV SPOILER ALERT "There but for the grace of God I arrived," Brewer says of elevation to governor amid recession. (Huh?)  

ON BREWER-SPEAK
@ MrFurlough: I've heard illegal immigrant anchor babies talk more coherently than Jan Brewer
@cmreilly: RT @brahmresnik: #AZGOV Why can't Gov conjugate verb "to do"? // English not her 1st language? Let's call for her to prove her citizenship.
@thePoliticop: Jan Brewer used the word "unillegal" wouldn't that be......legal?
@ChrisB357: at the very least, I think Gov Brewer found her campaign slogan-"WE HAVE DID"
@azcinsider: Brewer: Terry has did nothing.
@brahmresnik: AZGOV Just into her opening statement, governor goes blank for 5 seconds. That after catching herself almost saying "I have...did."  
@azcinsider: Brewer: "Terry, Terry, Terry, Terry, Terry, Terry."

ON JOBS AND BUDGET
@brahmresnik: AZGOV Goddard says emergency action plan will bring 300K jobs to state.  
@azcInsider: Larry Gist mentions the 5 C's, and promises to add a sixth C, for creating jobs. We'll C!
@azcinsider: As expected, Goddard hits the economy hard, blaming Brewer for 128,000 lost jobs and saying he'll bring 300,000 new ones to the state.
@repcampbell: Jan Brewer - for the last time. WE DO NOT HAVE A BALANCED BUDGET!!!!!!
@brahmresnik: AZGOV 'Terry, Terry, Terry,' Brewer mocks Goddard after he says she never balanced budget. Hess backs up Goddard.

ON HEALTHCARE
@brahmresnik: AZGOV Knocking kids off KidsCare just mean and hardhearted, Goddard says. How do we afford it? Brewer responds. Pins him to Obama admin.
@brahmresnik: Brewer on federal health care reform: "The bottom line is we simply cannot afford it."
@brahmresnik: AZGOV HCR not perfect but moving in right direction, Goddard says. Brewer says AZ cannot afford it and it's unconstitutional.  

ON PROP 100
@azcInsider: Brewer hits Goddard for not supporting Prop100 till the last minute: He tested the wind and got on board. He knew it was the only solution.
@brahmresnik: AZGOV Goddard got on board w Prop 100 when he knew it was the only solution, Brewer says. He was 'twisting in the wind.'  
@azcInsider: Goddard calls Prop. 100 "blackmail."
@brahmresnik:
AZGOV Taking credit for Prop100 after cutting ed $ like saving drowning man after you pushed him in, Goddard says to Brewer.

Wow. I feel sorry for her. Besides her speaking 'gaffs' she really had nothing of substance to say. Maybe she got nervous, but regardless, she doesn't belong in a leadership role. I would never vote for her myself but I certainly would never vote because someone belonged to a certain party, that's even more dumb.

I can only say that Mrs. Brewer is certainly an embarrassment for us citizens in Arizona. I hope she doesn't speak extemporaneously and have to try to think at the same time.

Shame on all you folks who choose to support her because of your party affiliation.

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.

It is sad to think that those elected to serve our interests feel the need to gain support by scaring the bejesus out of their constituents!!! it is true, you cannot say we are not safe and then wonder why tourism and investments in the state have declined. As far as the borde issue goes...statistics prove illegal immigration is down, I know..I know statistics can be fudged but take this into account, the evils they calim are happening, have been happening all along. This is nothing new! I am still trying to wrap my head around the fact that the bigges drug dealer in Mexico, who was in fact smuggling dope into the U.S. who did in fact move across the borders untouched, who was the scourge of both Mexican and American law enforcement agencies...WAS AMERICAN!!!!! hmmmm, wacky, aint it?

At least she didn't adjust her dentures with her tongue, as she often does. She did, however single-handedly disprove the theory of white supremacy.

Ah come on guys, all she needs is to have Paul Senseman whispering lies in one ear and Chuck Coughlin whispering bigger lies in the other ear. Then she will do fine. Its only when she has to think and speak for herself that she has a problem.

After that shit performance, we'll be lucky to see her even do an interview, much less another debate.

The scary thing is that many voters in AZ are even more clueless than Brewer and will vote for her on a single issue that is mired in CCA muck.

I will vote for her simply because she's a Republican. She admitted her mistakes on air this morning. I do NOT want a pinko Democrat governor running this state into the ground the way the Dems have this country.

You must be referring to the recent poll results showing that 71% of Americans STILL place most of the blame for this country's economic devastation on George W. Bush, which is where it belongs. The lie that the republicans have been telling about President Obama tripling the deficit 3 times in the past year has been debunked by Politifact. Politifact discovered that the republicans are comparing the 2009 deficit to the 1989 deficit, and that they are counting the spending for 2009 on Obama, even though the 2009 budget was signed into law by GWB. The party gets people to vote for them by lying to them, and when anyone tries to expose them to the facts they behave in a mean-spirited fashion and can't name ONE thing the party's members in Congress have done in the past 18 months except shout NO! as loud as they can.

I don't know about anyone else, but I don't think it's fiscally responsible for politicians who are paid by me to be paid for doing nothing. If any one of us did this, we'd have been fired and on unemployment long ago. That anyone chooses to uphold a politician when he/she is doing things that CLEARLY hurt the country is inexcusable. I don't vote on the basis of whether a politician has an (R) or (D) beside his/her name, but on the basis of the the politician's record, understanding of the issues, his/her platform, etc. I am not a "get on the bandwagon because he/she says _______ type of voter. I want a competent problem solver who focuses on the average citizen rather than a "sound bite" politician who uses emotions to get elected, and once he/she is in office, doesn't know what he/she is doing.

And you are the perfect example of why Arizona is in the shape it's in. I should sell my house now, even at a loss, before it becomes totally worthless thanks to all the braindead voters of Arizona.

But the State Capitol is for rent. Perhaps I can rent an office next to Russel Pearce? That would be awesome! Mariachi music and tamales delivered every day.
