Gov. Brewer endorses Romney, skips WH dinner

“He’s our man!”

Gov. Jan Brewer in Washington, D.C. for the National Governors Association (NGC) conference, will skip the Obama’s White House Black-tie dinner soiree tonight. She used her time in D.C. to a different advantage, appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” to endorse GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. “He’s the man that can carry the day and I’m going to get out there and work as hard as I can for Romney’s election,” Brewer said.

When asked yesterday whether she would attend tonight’s dinner, Gov. Brewer drolly responded, “I’m not. I’ve just decided I wasn’t going to be going because I had some other commitments I had to attend to.”

Brewer, who dined at the White House last year and will attend the policy discussions centered on economic issues with other governors and Obama Monday, laughed when asked to identify her scheduling conflict.

Brewer and Obama have had a stormy relationship since each took office in 2009, intensified by Obama’s decision to sue Arizona over our state’s nationally copied and widely supported law dealing with illegal immigration, known as SB 1070. The U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear the case Arizona v. United States.

    Right on, Governor Brewer! I only wish you had added that you needed to spend the time filing your toenails. That would have sealed the message to the socialist in the White House. No high tone dinner is worth selling your soul for.

    I also approve of you making this endorsement on the day of the dinner and taking some of the steam away from Obama.Great job of grabbing the press coverage.

  2. Overtaxed1 says:

    Brewer is just another McCain puppet. This endorsement was expected the day McCain backed Romney.

    • LD 18 Committeeman says:

      No one who knows me would ever accuse me of being a McCain fan, but he is irrelevant and this election is critical. We must win and Romney has the best chance of accomplishing that. When will you wise up?

  3. Army Of One says:

    Jan Brewer is showing she has huevos! Good going with the dinner diss, Governor!!

  4. Sgt. Flapjaw says:

    Good on Jan for giving Obama the finger. But, she also gave the finger to Arizona conservatives with the endorsement of Romney.

    • Overtaxed1 says:

      You are so right Sgt. Flapjaw, that is exactly what Jan Brewer did.
      I am so sick of the liberals thinking that Mr film flam Romney is the only Republican candidate that can beat O Bama.
      Those who push that line of crap are the ones who need to “wise up.”
      McCain is and his minions are a big issue here and perhaps the conservatives will put Santorum over the top.

      • Sgt. Flapjaw says:

        I personally believe that we will have to accept that Romney will be the winner. We must get behind whomever does win, as we are engaged in a war between two juxt-opposed economic systems, and ours must prevail.
        As to Gov. Brewer, she has always been more political than idealogical. Remember when she was totally stuck during the 1070 debate?
        The Gov. equivocated trying to determine which way to go. She was totally willing to go either way until she saw the polls showed such high favorable public opinion supporting the bill, and was then eager to jump on the bandwagon. She was made a star by the national media and never looked back. She approaches most issues that way.

    Looks like she’s decided to spend another day with her head in that fine Arizona sand. Good for her and the citizens of AZ.

    “$3 BILLION sales tax increase for unionist teachers/la raza extremists/socialist -indoctrinators” RINO brewer does the expected and supports a RINO….

    Outer Limits commands from the Ruling Class Republican Establishment (with help from their pals: the d-cRAT socialists and their stooges/puppets in the socialist media):

    There is nothing wrong with your mind. Do not attempt to think for yourself. We are controlling the information provided for the Republican primaries. If we wish to destroy a conservative, we will bring up the volume of attacks. If we wish to support a RINO, we will tune it to a pleasant sound. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image of a conservative, make it flutter. We can change the focus of a conservative to a soft blur or sharpen it to crystal clarity for an establishment RINO. For the remainder of the primary season, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your mind. You are about to participate in a great adventure – the approval of the RINO that we establishment clowns have selected to win the nomination. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to… ANOTHER RULING-CLASS ESTABLISHMENT CANDIDATE LOSER.

    We, the Ruling-Class Repub Establishment, hereby command you to support our candidate, RINO romney(care), who will, without doubt, also lose in the general election like our other candidates mccain, dole, george h.w. bush, ford….

    John Huppenthal, Head of Arizona’s Dept of Education, and one of few real conservatives in the state government, has endorsed Santorum.

    Overtaxed – Sgt. Flapjaw – Tea Party Patriot:
    You are all spot on!
    Brewers endorsement of the Status Quo Romney only solidifies what many Conservatives have felt all along.,,Governor, you’re NOT one of us!
    To her credit (although she was dragged kicking and screaming until her political antenna went up) her defense of SB 1070 is admirable.
    However, the rest of her actions are as disappointing as her appearence on MEET THE dePRESSed this morning.
    I’m embarrassed to admit, but… by her refusal or inability to counter anything Gov. Jerry “moonbeam” Brown said, allowed moonbeams positions to sound reasonable.

  9. jackhammer says:

    I voted for Senator Santorum a month ago when I found out he is a sponsor of a Nascar Ford Fusion #26 with driver Tony Raines. That sealed the deal for me, nothing says Redneck Conservative like Nascar and putting your name on a car is greatness! Now grow a backbone and win the GOP nomination. As far as Gov. Brewer goes I don’t always agree with her choices but she’s a better Governor than Arizona has had in years, have we forgotten about liberal janet or criminal fife. At least she is standing up against obama and supporting Senator Pearce and sb1070. Also, we should hear soon from Super Pearce who will be running for Senator again…watch for Sheriff Joe and Senator Pearce to be the dynamic duo (Batman and Superman no robin)who bring down the liberal agenda, stay tuned.

    • NightOwl says:

      If being a sponsor at Nascar is what you use as a gauge for voting in the most important election in our lifetime, no one can take anything you write seriously. If you had to attach your actual name to this idiocy, I doubt we’d be reading it. Either you’re nuts or the King of farce.

  10. Sgt. Flapjaw says:

    Realist……Sounds like I am glad That I missed that show. I have always thought that “The gov” is in a job that is too big for her. I do think that she is a nice gal, and we all know that we have had worse, but I believe that there is a good stable of candidates to take her place next election. Horne, Huppenthal, and others. Those two would be sorely missed from their current posts however.

    The pro-illegal libtard media continues to threaten Romney with the latino [Mexican] vote and paint him as a “hardliner.” They have conveniently ignored his “temporary status” (amnesty) remarks in Florida a few weeks back before the Hispanic Leadership Network. Consider that, his endorsement by McCain, and his being at odds with the Mormon church over illegal immigration. It just doesn’t add up. Brewer’s endorsement is right out of the “anybody but Obama” playbook, and hopefully will be thoroughly ignored by primary voters. So if Romney goes all the way, when will anti-illegal immigration advocates suffer from buyer’s remorse? March 2013? June 2013? Place your bets. I would give Santorum about an 80% chance of reversing GWB’s and Obama’s illegal alien sucking. I can’t even muster 30% on Romney. It just doesn’t add up.

    • Overtaxed1 says:

      ZOO, you are so right. Romney has promised that he will “keep the faith” with his cult so which Romney are the liberals betting on.
      The liberals are in line with the “faith” where illegals are concerned.
