Time for the Governor to go

I ran across this story on Foxnews.com

More Ariz. National Guard Troops to Combat Border Problems
Wednesday, March 08, 2006

PHOENIX — Gov. Janet Napolitano on Wednesday ordered more National Guardsmen posted at the Mexican border to help stop illegal immigrants and curb related crimes.

National Guard troops have worked at the border since 1988, but Napolitano signed an order authorizing commanders to station an unspecified number of additional soldiers there to help federal agents.

Once the funding is approved, the troops will monitor crossing points, assist with cargo inspection and operate surveillance cameras, according to the order.

"They are not there to militarize the border," the governor said. "We are not at war with Mexico."

About 170 National Guardsmen are already posted at the nation's busiest illegal entry point, where they assist with communications, fence construction and anti-drug efforts.

Napolitano did not say how many additional troops would be stationed at the border and referred questions to the National Guard, which did not immediately return a call.

The Democratic governor proposed sending troops to the border more than two months ago. Her critics in the Republican-led Legislature then introduced a bill requiring her to do so and providing $10 million for the project.

The bill won final approval Wednesday in the House and was headed to the governor, but she promised to veto the measure, saying it infringes on her constitutional powers as commander in chief of the Arizona National Guard.

Napolitano has asked the military to pay for her plan, but said she would commit state dollars if necessary.

The governor declared an immigration emergency last summer in Arizona's four border counties, citing security shortcomings by the federal government.

Ok..this crap infuriates me....Napolitano was asked 2 years ago on the morning show on KNST AM in Tucson what she thought of the border problem and her words were "Its not a problem and nothing my constituents are concerned about" Which was boopkiss because the people of Arizona had enough of people traipsing through their backyards at night stealing livestock and leaving trash all over the place.

Now...all of a SUDDEN since its an election year, she sees it as an emergency and is doing everything she can to protect the borders...while I am thankful something is FINALLY being done, I am not grateful because this is political posturing.

She turned down 10 mil from the house because she was afraid it infringes "on her constitutional powers as commander in chief of the Arizona National Guard." Now she "Napolitano has asked the military to pay for her plan, but said she would commit state dollars if necessary."

In other words, she is going to spend Arizona tax payer money instead of taking from the national pot...now tell me, what fiscal sense does this make?

Napolitano is a hypocrite and a typical democrat using hot topic political issues to make the SHEEPLE..yes ... I called you Arizona Democrats SHEEPLE .. think she is doing something good.

Before you vote...know the records...what your candidate did 2 years ago when there was no worry of getting re-elected will speak VOLUMES more then in an election year.

But then..the Sheeple will probably ignorantly re-elect her, which is why I say Stupid people should NOT be allowed to vote.

But that is just my opinion.

Well, now. I didn't know she had stated two years ao that there was no border problem. Interesting. I'd better pay more attention to her then.
