More issues with the Arizona immigation law
« on: June 03, 2010, 02:23:45 am »
So I'm up late, figure one last check of the e-mail before bed.  I get this-

Quote
On Friday, Gov. Jan Brewer removed the state's attorney
general from defending Arizona's new SB1070 -- accusing him
of "conspiring with the Obama administration as it considers
whether to sue the state."
 
According to Fox News, Brewer's decision came following news
that Justice Department officials met with Attorney General
Terry Goddard prior to meeting with her legal team.
 
With Goddard's removal from this case, Brewer plans on
invoking a provision in the law to have a private attorney
defend the state from legal challenge... a provision that
is being called "un-constitutional" by Goddard.

So I fire up the google-fu, and sure enough it's true.  Happened three days ago, but this is the first I've heard of it.  I'll give that lady this-  When she makes a choice, it's sure enough made.  Black and white, if you don't like it?  Tough!  I'll bet Obama may be re-thinking the wisdom of deciding to meet with her over this issue.  He's gonna walk out of his own office with a sore backside and a tear on his cheek I'm thinking.
This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty. . . . The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction- St. George Tucker, Blackstone's Commentaries

    Goddard is her opposition this fall for the Governors hall.  So IMHO I see this as a one/two punch.  First she c blocks him getting the media of "SB 1070 is BAD" and selling his support of whatever's against it to the hispanic vote.  And second she's going to win the fight which is both right and politically beneficial.  And yes I'd love to see her sit down with Obama televised.   :clap

    Terry Goddard publicly stated he disagreed with the law and that if he was Governor he would have vetoed it.  Then he says he can defend the law even though he personally disagrees with it. 

    He's trying to play both sides of the issue.  Attorneys get paid to represent their clients.  If I'm paying for an attorney I want one that's at least publicly on my side of the issue.  Not one that is opposed to it. 

    You go Jan!  Three months ago I wasn't going to vote for you and I would have said you were going to lose the next election but recent events have changed my thinking.

    +1 for Norseman and Harm.  I would like to be a fly on the wall during the meeting.
