    Arizonan will head Homeland Security

    OMG this is like having the fox to watch the hen house!


    Arizonan will head Homeland Security

    Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano (D) has been chosen to serve as secretary of the vast and troubled Department of Homeland Security for President-elect Obama, Democratic officials said. Napolitano is a border governor who will now be responsible for immigration policy and border security, which are part of Homeland Security’s myriad functions.

    Napolitano brings law-and-order experience from her stint as the Grand Canyon State’s first female attorney general. One of the nation’s most prominent female elected officials, she made frequent appearances on behalf of Barack Obama during the campaign. She was re-elected to a second four-year term in 2006.

    Transition insiders have long expected that she would be offered a Cabinet slot, although she had also been mentioned for other posts, including attorney general.

    Napolitano, 50, endorsed Obama in early January, just as the primaries were kicking off, and the female up-and-comer's decision to back the Illinois Senator got widespread coverage.

    In 2005, TIME magazine named her one of America’s five best governors, calling her “A Mountaineer on the Political Rise.

    God help us.
    Just because you're used to something doesn't make it right.

    Napolitano opposed … several bills that targeted illegal immigrants. Instead, she looked to the systems and people that make illegal immigration possible: she ordered state contractors to ensure that their employees are legal [and] set up an undercover unit to catch forgers of identity documents … In mid-August she declared a state of emergency in Arizona to direct more funds to protecting border area
    She seems to be doing more than some, and less than we would love to have done.

    Wasn't she the one who held the head of a Sheriff Joe effigy up as a trophy?
    The flag flies at half-mast out of grief for the death of my beautiful, formerly-free America. May God have mercy on your souls.

    From some of the comments I have seen in newspaper stories-the people of AZ can't hardly wait to get rid of her....I guess she's really that bad.
