Governor Jan Brewer Not Ready For Prime Time, Debate A Disaster

Before I start I want to state that talking with the aim to communicate effectively while many are listening is not easy. If you think it is, try to talk without pause, no ‘ums’ or ahh’s, and see if you can articulate a message about any topic in the headlines these days for 60 seconds.  Having worked in broadcasting I know how many words are needed for just one minute of air time.  There is a rhythm to such talking after one does it over and over, and it gets very easy.  Short of that however it can be hard.

So at some level I feel for any politician when they need to go into a debate and face a crowd, the clock, the opponent, the microphone, and in most cases the camera.  It is not easy.

But there are those portions of any debate, such as the opening and ending, where a candidate can have their responses rehearsed.  Generally these are the things one says in every campaign stop and so should roll off the tongue like their age and phone number  That is why the performance by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer was simply shocking in Wednesday’s debate.

It was as if  Jan Brewer had never been a statewide candidate before, and had never entered a debate situation.  This is one of the most painful moments I have ever seen in a debate.

    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.

    “Private Prisons Lie”

    “AZ Crime Rates”

    “Father Lie”
