    If she said that? Doesn't she know she said that? Is memory another failing of this accidental governor?
    A politician takes the rare action of acknowledging making a mistake and you're pissed about how she phrased it??

    Sounds like the beheadings are prevalent along the border, but with most happening on the Mexican side.

    Chappy would post a thread if a republican politician misordered breakfast. THAT there is criminal behavior, violence, drug smuggling, kidnapping...NONE of that matters. THAT they are actually trying to do something about it...PSHAW! Heaven forbid. I dont think i ever saw any threads from him regarding Obamas outright lies about when mommy and daddy hooked up under JFKs love blanket...or any of the other steady stream of lies...his hate and scorn is one way, baby...the only 'lies' that count are conservative lies.

    In all sincerety here, the issue is not beheadings in Mexico, but another lying politician. I shouldn't be too hard on her though, since other politicians, both Republican and Democratic, have told some real whoppers this election cycle.

    If you want to know the truth, I have more faith that a serial liar will be more trustworthy than a politician of ANY stripe or ideology.

    I wonder if she was lying, or did she think beheadings were going on in Az?
    I haven't kept up with this so don't jump on me if she has come out and said she lied.

    No...it's a matter of shock politics. In this case, how barbaric can you make illegal Mexicans appear in an atmosphere where illegal immigration is a hot button item not only in AZ but across the country.

    I'm not saying it's not a valid issue; illegal immigration definitely needs to be addressed, but right now whatever captures the biggest headlines is what's being used to campaign on.

    Much of Chappy's statements can be applied to Pelosi. Chappy won't admit it.

    A careful search brings to light that the No. 2 kidnapping claim hangs on a single story from Brian Ross of ABC News (of course, who else?) which has never been backed up by any form of documentation.

    Excerpted from “Dewhurst says Phoenix has more kidnappings than any other city in the world except for Mexico City,” PolitiFact Texas
    Phoenix has experienced hundreds of kidnappings over the past few years. However, we couldn't find reliable around-the-planet evidence to confirm that only Mexico City experiences more of them. In fact, experts advise that such rankings can't be made based on available information. If they could, they speculate, other cities would prove to have more kidnappings than Arizona's capital.

    Punch line: Nothing confirms Phoenix as No. 2 in kidnappings worldwide. We'll revisit this turf if compelling evidence surfaces, but for now Dewhurst's statement is False.
    Indeed, if you trouble to read the PolitiFact-Texas report, you'll find that kidnapping crimes in Phoenix have been declining in recent years. What we have here is political opportunists making up their own facts to fit their world view.
