Video: Jan Brewer on Meet the Press With Jerry Brown + Brewer Endorses Mitt (Sigh)

Governors Jan Brewer (R-AZ) and Jerry Brown (D-CA) appeared on  NBC’s “Meet the Press” program, Sunday morning to discuss U.S. immigration policy and politics.  Governor Brown touted his signing of the DREAM Act and his support for comprehensive immigration reform and Governor Brewer defended her state’s S.B. 1070 immigration enforcement law as being necessary to fight drug cartel violence along the U.S. border with Arizona. In a discussion about the drug violence on the border, Brewer, attacked the Obama administration for sending thousands of guns to the cartels in Mexico, and suing her state, instead of securing the border. “It’s frustrating, David!” she cried.

Note how clumsily David Gregory blurted out his talking point-o-the day: Hispanics as a voting bloc are “certainly not happy with the Republican party.”

Because we believe in securing the borders, that somehow makes us anti-Hispanic, but keeping United States citizens safe is something that Hispanics who are here legally, (and can thus, vote), understand. Meanwhile – you’ve got to be kidding me – Obama is courting the Hispanic vote after arming drug cartels with thousands of high powered weapons to kill Mexican citizens with (virtually an act of war against Mexico), and virtually declaring war against the Catholic Church? He’ll have the  pro-drug cartel vote wrapped up, but less luck with  the pro-life, pro-family Hispanic vote.

A new poll shows that only 46% of Hispanic voters in Florida support Obama for re-election against an unnamed Republican opponent, compared to 57% when Obama ran four years ago. No wonder Gregory is spinning.

On a related note, today, Brewer also publicly endorsed  Mitt Romney for President:

Brewer says Romney’s business background appealed to her.

“I think he’d serve Americans the best of all the candidates,” Brewer said during an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press” on Sunday, adding that she thinks he’s the candidate who could win November’s election.

The endorsement came four days after Romney and three rivals appeared in a debate in Mesa, Ariz. Immediately following the debate, Brewer told CNN she had yet to decide who to endorse, though she said Newt Gingrich’s plan to consult the governors of southwestern states regarding border policy appealed to her.

  1. “he’s the candidate who could win in November’s election” is getting a bit long in the tooth as a ‘insider elite’ republican talking point.

    There are a lot of successful business men. What has Romney shown aside from willingness to spend 10-20 times as much as his opposition – for attack ads?

    Are we to believe Romney will be able to raise $10 billion to attack Obama?

    If Romney has offered any hint of what a President Romney might do it has been lost in the avalanche of negativity. So, how is viable?


  2. At least she admits that she is backing what she believes to be the winning horse instead of coming up with the lie that he is conservative like my governor did. Of course my Gov. is said to be on Romney’s short list for VP.


  3. Deb:
    Gov. Brewer doesn’t add much to the ticket. By that I mean Arizona is pretty reliably republican. Virginia is turning more purple due to the people who move here to work for the federal government. Virginia’s budget problems have also taken a good turn since he has taken over. I would be very surprised if he isn’t the vp if Romney gets the nod. I personally know a few people who have said that would make the difference when it comes to voting for Romney as well.

    But the visual of her out on the stump attacking Obama and his policies would be a sight to see.


  4. It’s getting interesting seeing who “hard-core ” conservatives back, and the reasons why. Kinda shows 1) which ones have steel backbones and 2) which ones have “core values” that change with the direction of the wind.

    Yes, I’m talking about Brewer, but also Coulter, Bachmann, etc. But we already knew that of John-boy, and the entire Republican D.C. insider elite. Just wish there was a true conservative who didn’t have a propensity to make a well-worn path down his throat (like Santorum seems to every day now) and who’s not hiding some bimbo explosion (true or not) like Cain.
