Brewer Inauguration: She had did not stayed classy

Per today’s Phoenix Biz Journal

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer sounded vague support for revamping the state’s enterprise zone program and blamed former governor Janet Napolitano and President Barack Obama for the state’s fiscal woes during her inaugural address Monday.

Of course she did. Being a Republican she is a) incapable of losing or winning graciously and b) hellbent on casting blame on whatever Democrats are convenient to distract from her own incompetence and mendacity. Nothing I didn’t expect but still, would it have killed Governor Brewer’s communications team to write her a speech that showed a modicum of class? Sheesh, guys, surprise us once in a while, will ya?

UPDATE: Hat tip to former Maricopa County Dems Executive Director Todd Landfried for snapping this photo of today’s inauguration:


Feel the excitement! Apparently most of the crowd were staff. Methinks the SB1070 honeymoon is over.

    OH! That picture was priceless…I wasn’t expecting to see that when I scrolled down…coffee came out my nose! Yea, those “take personal responsibility “folks like to sling it, but they sure don’t like to practice what they preach. Always someone elses fault. Well, let’s watch Jan and her wrecking crew “fix” AZ now…she’ll have no cover and no one to blame but herself and her Republican overlords in the legislature…going to be a hard few years, but this just might be what we need to bring all the BS into the light…on the bright side, maybe we can finally nail the coffin shut on R’s screwing this state over at every opportunity. NO where to hide, Jan!!

    When will Brewer “own” her state’s economy? It took Repugnicans in Congress 8 months to tag the economy to Obama. Do you think it’ll be 2012 before Jan stops blaming Janet for all her woes? Maybe 2014? My bet is “never”, with Brewer taking a page from dimwit Palin that she’ll always be the victim.

    The photo is Fantastic. Reality Checks are best cashed.

    Hey I saw pictures yesterday of a lot more people at her inauguration. I agree with you politics but publishing lies (this time in the form of pictures) doesn’t do anybody any good. Tacky and irresponsible.
