Stunning ineptitude of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer*

Forget about whether you agree or disagree with today's Supreme Court decision. What's remarkable is Brewer's appallingly unresponsive answers to questions during a press conference (as well as her unwillingness to acknowledge that the high court struck down a good portion of Arizona's controversial immigration law). How on earth can this woman be running a state?

*So how does Mitt Romney see today's ruling? Good question. Here's his statement:

"Today's decision underscores the need for a President who will lead on this critical issue and work in a bipartisan fashion to pursue a national immigration strategy. President Obama has failed to provide any leadership on immigration. This represents yet another broken promise by this President. I believe that each state has the duty -- and the right -- to secure our borders and preserve the rule of law, particularly when the federal government has failed to meet its responsibilities. As Candidate Obama, he promised to present an immigration plan during his first year in office. But 4 years later, we are still waiting."

No, you didn't miss anything - just another of his non-response responses.
