Folks, Governor Jan Brewer says President Obama is the man who should win the election in November, because she believes he'll secure our borders, then fix the rest of this country.

"I know that if President Obama is elected in November -- which I hope that he is -- that he will be able to come together with all of us and come up with a solution," Brewer told MSNBC last night. "And I believe he will secure our borders, and therefore, we can resolve all those other issues; it's a simple matter," she said.

Governor Glug-Glug appears to be in mid-season form here at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, because she clearly did not want to say that.

That probably would've been a more appropriate time for a lengthy brain fart, but Brewer decided to make it two days straight on awkward public speaking.
