    Ariz. governor says she was wrong about beheadings

    “That was an error, if I said that.” — Governor Jan Brewer (R-AZ)

    If she said that? Doesn't she know she said that? Is memory another failing of this accidental governor?

    Excerpted from “Ariz. governor says she was wrong about beheadings; Arizona governor says she was wrong about her beheadings claim disputed by rival during debate” By PAUL DAVENPORT and AMANDA LEE MYERS, AP News, TPM News, Sep 04, 2010 04:11 EDT
    A claim by Arizona's governor that rising violence along the U.S.-Mexico border has led to headless bodies turning up in the desert came back to haunt her during a stammering debate performance in which she failed to back it up.

    This is BN worthy?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    At least she owns up to her mistakes and admits she was wrong. That takes humility and character. Obama on the other hand propagates his failed stimulus as healing the economy and jobs. When will he admit his lies?

    What politician has not misspoked , lied, or bended the truth? Chappy, can you tell me with all honesty that Pelosi has never misspoken on a subject. It should be a non issue.

    Re: Ariz. governor says she was wrong about beheadings

    Gee, I can't think of a politician who claimed that law enforcement officers were finding beheaded bodies in the desert and when every authority in the state contradicted her, she persisted in her claims through televised debates, through press conferences. This woman is an idiot.

    That brings to mind a pretty famous politician who promised unemployment wouldn't raise above 8% if we passed his bill... He also goes on the news and talks about how successful the economic recovery is coming along despite higher unemployment and decline... He is persistent in his claims through debates and conferences. That politician is a idiot.

    There are more beheadings going on (just not in Az) than there was stimulous in the stimulous bill.
    I really don't think think this or her "brainfreeze" will hurt her. She's too far ahead in the polls.

    Chappy, you never answer questions. I'll take your lead and say that Pelosi is an idiot for the many false statements she made in office. So once again, she finally admitted she was wrong. Don't see Pelosi, Kerry doing any backtracking on their wrong statements. How is the Gov any different that your beloved Pelosi.
