Perhaps we should start referring to Arizona's Governor Brewer as.... America's Governor.

Just in case you are not catching it... this is pretty big stuff going on... having the heads of the United States White House, the Justice Department, and now the Secretary of State for the nation... to publicly... and now internationally... assault one of our sovereign State's decisions to defend herself is... pretty unprecedented... at least since the Civil War.

Clinton comment on immigration law riles Ariz. gov

PHOENIX – Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said Thursday she's angry over comments by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton that the Obama administration will sue the state over its new immigration law.

In a June 8 media interview in Ecuador that began circulating Thursday in the U.S., Clinton said President Barack Obama thinks the federal government should determine immigration policy and that the Justice Department "will be bringing a lawsuit against the act."... It's unclear why Clinton made the comment since it's not her area. She couldn't be reached Thursday for comment.....

Brewer, a Republican, said in a statement that "this is no way to treat the people of Arizona."

"To learn of this lawsuit through an Ecuadorean interview with the secretary of state is just outrageous," she said. "If our own government intends to sue our state to prevent illegal immigration enforcement, the least it can do is inform us before it informs the citizens of another nation."

Brewer spokesman Paul Senseman said the governor was "outraged" and that Clinton's comments make it appear that the Justice Department has decided to file suit.

"But she's confident that in the end, the state of Arizona, the citizens, will prevail," he said.....

"Jan Brewer... America's Governor"

I kind of like the way that sounds.
