Obama's Debacle in the Desert
• US Attorney Eric Holder lambastes the law, though later admitting he had never even read it.
• President Obama blasts Arizona and its law before Mexican president Felipe Calderon on a state visit
• Representatives from the Obama Justice Department meet with Arizona attorney general Terry Goddard to "discuss" the law in an unprecedented level of interference (I'll bet they offered him a job in the Administration).
Now, despite his DOJ representatives plotting with Goddard and disavowal of Arizona before a foreign head of state, Obama himself has no time at all to meet with Governor Brewer. Remember Obama had plenty of time for beers to settle a minor personal squabble. When it comes to meeting with a governor of a state over an issue of international significance, however, he has to wash his hair.
6/2 UPDATE: Obama to Meet with Brewer. Apparently my post made the difference.
