Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R) has vetoed a bill that would have provided business owners legal grounds to deny service to the LGBT community when it collided with their sincere religious beliefs. Senate Bill 1062 amended the state Religious Freedom Restoration Act to clarify that it extended to “any individual, association, partnership, corporation, church, religious assembly or institution or other business organization.”
We know Romney was too conservative in the primaries and too moderate in the general. We know Romney didn't run enough ads in the Spring then ran too many ads in the Fall. We know Republicans depended too much on their turnout operation and too little on messaging. We know Republicans depended too much on messaging and too little on their turnout operation.

In America, we don't have rulers entitled to the deference and obsequiousness other countries show to their kings; our elected officials are ordinary citizens whom we are free to criticize.
So, it turns out that the cool cat billed as "No Drama Obama" by his sycophants is actually quite the drama queen. While the White House publicly pretends to ignore conservative detractors of his administration, Chief Touchy-Touchy seems to be personally consumed by our critiques. Yes, mine included.
"He's very thin-skinned"
It was the spring of 2010 when a media firestorm was ignited over the passage of a new law in the Grand Canyon State. The controversy? Simple enforcement of the federal law wherein the federal government has proven derelict: securing the border against illegal immigration.
