Arizona Governor Jan Brewer showed some much needed common sense and vetoed the so-called birther bill that would require Presidential Candidates to prove their U.S. Citizenship and their residences for the last fourteen years. According to Huffington Post, Brewer said, “I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for president of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth to submit their ‘early baptismal or circumcision certificates’. This measure creates significant new problems while failing to do anything constructive for Arizona.”
According to a story on WTVR.com, Governor Brewer went two for two on common sense vetoes. She vetoed the bill that “would have made Arizona the second state in the nation to allow an individual to carry a firearm — either concealed or not — in the public rights of way on higher education campuses.”
Good for her. Finally, a politician that didn’t sign a law because it would help them politically. She showed intelligence by vetoing two bills that do not do anything good for Arizona. It’s too bad that she probably will lose her party’s nomination when she runs for re-election. Arizona has demonstrated that common sense doesn’t run deep.
Wish we had a governor that used his head and wasn’t politically motivated to sign bills.
