    Think about it; the large Hispanic voting block is heavily in the Democrat's camp thanks to the current junta's rulings....Now Medicare is being assailed. This will put the enormous block of retirees and seniors in AZ in play.

    It does lead one to wonder what the Governor was thinking. VP picks aren't staffed out; this was him. Is he really this much of a political neophyte?

    it might be... also b/c arizona got hit hard by the real estate market and has a lot of retirees who might actually care what happens to social security and know that $7,000 a year doesn't buy insurance.

    but they voted for jan brewer, so who knows?

    i believe AZ sued the US on at least one case... not the other way around.

    so you were saying?

    Yes they did. I wonder how many people know who the Governor of AZ was before Brewer. It was Janet Napalitano who now runs the DHS for the President. Arizonans have a brain; it's not Texas. Carmona/Flake is running neck and neck with a lot of undecideds.... McCain's moderation is not an accident although it will likely mean death to him in the next primary.

    PPP had Romney up by 11% in a July poll. Thats not insurmountable.

    The US sued AZ and sued the AZ sheriffs independently over 1070. Which the US lost on all important points. And here I thought you were paying attention!

    I suspect that any senior that worked their entire life to be able to retire to Az would rather eat cat food than watch the America they grew up do 4 more under Obama.
