Crazy excited over this!
I can't wait to hang out and shop at Generation Cool!
Ok Martha, so equal rights is now a state thing??? She dances around the question, by throwing up jobs and the economy. So the question zeros in on does she or doesn't she support equal rights for all. Then she deflects it to whether it's a question of real importance and dodges the issue yet again. So, it's clear she does NOT believe in equal rights for all people. She is just another Sarah Palin, that keeps saying we "need to discuss it" and "find sensible solutions", but never says what she really thinks. Then she talks about "some" republican alternatives to Obamacare....Alternatives like "you're better off without healthcare, all those bills....it gets so confusing". Martha how about some substance. This is "all hat and no cowgirl".
Lady GAGA, I'm no fan of McSally the candidate, but to accuse her of firing missiles at civilians for a living is beyond stupid.
"Some reasonable reforms to the defensive medicine that some doctors are practicing to avoid frivolous lawsuits." I love when these idiots (Republicans) throw this kind of crap out there. I guess she's never had a close relative die - as I have - because a doctor did not order a test that would have diagnosed a serious illness. The resulting "frivolous" lawsuit was eventually settled but three children were left without one of their parents. Have a nice day, Martha.
I still can't quite comprehend how a person who fired missiles at civilians for a living can talk about the "sanctity of human life" in the next breath. She's a typical hard line conservative. Once you're born, you're on your own. And don't get sick - but if you do, die quickly.
Which Republican alternative is she referring to, 'take what you can get and be grateful for it' or 'go to the emergency room and hope you're in time to live'?
So she still hates gays. God save Arizona.
Why didn't you ask her about her health care coverage -- most likely TriCare for Life and little or not cost to her and how she reconciles that with what she thinks the rest of the country should be paying?
There will be a bottle-neck situation headed into downtown Tucson since the 8 lanes will be narrowed into 3 then 2 lanes toward Congress and then one toward Alameda. That seems poorly planned to me...
Greg has done a wonderful job of restoration of the statues. The Garden is a beautiful sanctuary and I am sure Felix Lucero would be honored to see it now.
Perhaps she should actually spend some time in Arizona and on the border in particular before she spouts off her opinions on immigration. (As I believe anyone, in Washington should be doing). Talk to someone other than the political talking heads and learn what people are really thinking about all of this--not always the same as what is being pushed and reported upon.
Obama does everything primarily for its political effect rather than its merits. Obamacare was passed as his "legacy" legislation in spite of the fact that a majority of voters did not want it and which is why the Dems lost the House in the next election in 2010. Even laws passed by a "dysfunctional" Congress are better than rule by one man, regardless of the fact that he may be President. One obviously wants to be a member of a dysfunctional Congress to help fix it.
It is funny how she answers the questions just like Obama, without answering them. And yet so many of you buy into his responses and will criticize McSally's.
Let me see if I have this right: When asked about the big picture, Colonel (Ret.) McSally's answers veer into particulars. When asked about such particular items as a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, she answers that the immigration system as a whole needs to be addressed. And of course she disagrees with whatever President Obama has done and it has all been done in view of an election.
In a real world -- are we living in one? -- to say "I prefer that these things go through Congress, even though Congress is dysfunctional" seems like saying it's better that nothing be done rather than something positive be done in an irregular manner by someone with whom I'm bound to disagree.
And why would she want to become a member of a dysfunctional Congress anyway?
Still not ready for prime time.
How did saguaro print leggings not make the list? Come onnnnnn Tucsonnnnnn :)
I wouldn't trust anything the Salvation Army says or does, until they publicly take responsibliity for injuring and nearly killing a 6 yr old little boy. Besides I've heard that they love to stock pile items donated and their people pick over items before they get distributed. When they are willing to be open and truthful, perhaps more people will be open with their pocketbooks.
Most competent politicians keep up with the daily political views and bills, Guess she really is not concerned as we see most Republicans, as they just vote NAY each time. So they don't have to keep up or have any knowledge of bills
Her comments show us that Republicans and the Tea Party really don't understand how to be a law makers, They are not prepared for making decisions and key votes. Currently they vote NAY on everything. But voters continue to elect them to office. But these are voters that don't care or incompetent
If I were interviewing Ms. McSally for an executive position in my company, I would ask her questions that would help me to determine whether she had taken the time to get to know our company and marketplace. Great leadership/management candidates are the people who have done their research and have taken the time to understand our challenges & opportunities. Philosophy is nice, but it doesn't let me know that someone has the knowledge and skill set to lead the company.
As a private citizen with no interest in a political office, I know where to find legislation and have a short list of people I can contact if I need more information on policy or legislative information. I take the time to stay informed -- not just as a voter, but in case I need to advocate for my work, family, etc.. To imply that this process is too complicated to handle outside of an elected office is absurd. More disturbing still to hear a political candidate imply that they just don't have the time to inform themselves as a private citizen.
This article just cost Ms. McSally one vote.
