Speaking of Arizona, do you know who the previous Governor was? Janet "The System Worked" Napolitano. And as Governor, she did nothing about the open border. And by doing nothing, she made a bad situation worse. And with that undeniable blemish on her resume, Obama made her the Head of Homeland Security.
What could be the rationale for that decision? She showed no inclination or ability to secure her own state, and yet she rewarded with the job of securing the whole nation?
Couldn't they have made her the head of some backwater federal agency? How do you look at her credentials--and her undeniable failures-- and say "this is the best person to head Homeland Security"?
And from the other side of it, how could Napolitano even apply for the job? With the failure to secure the Arizona border on her resume, what was she thinking?
By any fair measure, she is not qualified to be the Head of Homeland Security. And we all saw that with the Christmas bomber. And with the Arizona border, we are seeing the mess she left behind.
