Does Jan Brewer Deserve Credit For Arizona's Not Having a Complete Economic Meltdown?

Governor Jan Brewer yesterday gave her third State of the State Address, during which she credited herself with taking "the helm" of the sinking ship that was Arizona's economy and saving the entire state.

At least she's humble.

See our post on Brewer's speech here.

Despite what she has to say about it, Governor Glug-Glug didn't single-handedly save the state from total disaster. However, she's been in charge for the last three years, and somehow Arizona still exists (although, the state's currently leasing its capitol building -- something Brewer hopes to change, despite reluctantly approving the sale of the buildings in 2009).

We want to know what you think: how much credit does Brewer deserve for Arizona's continuing to exist?
