    ...saying the law blatantly violates the Constitution.
    isn't that ironic...after all the blatant violations that have been committed at the Federal level...

    at this point Barack and company are sealing their own fate. November is going to kick them in the ass...and I can't wait. This November is going to be a political slaughter for his party. They're done. This just adds more fuel to the fire.

    Hell, if I were the gov. of AZ... I'd form an AZ military and tell Obama to back off...or I'm taking New Mexico, Nevada and Utah.... and I will be forming a military alliance with Texas.

    We're about to that point now... right?

    If it goes that far, the Supremes will rightly rule that the Arizona law in question is indeed unconstitutional.
    However, the bad publicity that the Obama administration will reap during the court fight, when Arizona's attorneys argue that the state law sought only to make up for the federal government's unwillingness to enforce existing federal law, will be priceless ammunition for the next executive-branch election.
    Go, Arizona!

    I saw where the state of Arizona had already collected over $500,000 for its legal defense fund. The attorney general, who was against this particular law, has apparently stepped aside and the government has contracted with a private law firm to defend themselves.

    It will be interesting to see how it goes.

    Government that says "These things are too complex for you to understand, so just go watch "American Idol" and let us take care of all the decisions" leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    The Arizona AG knows that the law is going to fall, and he (she?) has better things to do than to defend a losing case.
    Nevertheless, Arizona did the right thing; and it'd be even better were other states to follow suit, even though their laws would fall with Arizona's. The whole idea is to send the federal government an unmistakable, in-its-face message.

    The attorney general said that he would support the state, even though he was against the law. I think that he was basically asked to recuse himself in this matter because the powers that be didn't think that he would give it his best effort.
