Her approval ratings shot up 30% after she signed it. Was this for political purposes. Is she manipulating the voters in Arizona. I don't know much about her, what was she like on other issues?

She didn't pass it she signed it,
The Arizona house and senate passed it and , had the votes to override her veto if necessary.

There is a big difference

Who cares. Just like who cares that it is opined that Dems want latino votes so that is why illegal immigration is viewed with a blind eye by them. Or that the repubs want the illegal gotten gains. Who cares. The only thing I care about is stopping illegal immigration and the rape it has done to this Country.

I guess a better place to learn of Jan Brewer's politics would be the political forum.

I'm just happy she signed the bill and expresses great concern and pride for her State and America.

I don't think she signed the bill for political gain. She did it because the people in this state are FED UP and have NEVER been able to get the Feds to do anything. At least nothing that amounted to anything.

I really don't know much about her. She hasn't been governor that long.

Thats a good question, but I hardly believe doing what the citizens of Arizona wanted was wrong. Just amagine how much Obama's ratings would rise if he supported this law. Hell, I mean inforced the exisiting law! (Which by the way is nearly identical to Arizona's law except Arizona's law has provisions to prevent profiling, the US (federal) law doesn't)

Many of Obama's critics will NEVER EVER approve of him, no matter what he does. If Obama were to support this law his approval rating would actually drop. His support from his base would continue to erode. The right already hate him with a passion, and the left is becoming increasinly dissapointed in him.

This.

Jan Brewer has balls, and she's a woman. You know the old saying "someone has to do it"? She did it. She got the ball rolling. She's writing history as we speak. As you may see, other states are wanting to draft up their own illegal immigrant laws now after Arizona's.

Your right, I would find it hard to support anything he does now but this is a vrey true statement, he only stands to loose if he did anything to support the right.
Awesome call!

I agree with you. I was just saying that I don't believe she signed the law for "political gain" and why I felt that way. I'm glad she did sign it and I hope it does some good.

Is this an election year? If so, what do you expect.
