Misc.

What will Governor Martinez do in the face of the Obama administration's compassionate decision to let illegal aliens who came here as children stay here and live the life of an American?  Will she continue her rightwing directed assault on undocumented workers?  Will she insist on deporting the parents of "americanized" children?  Will she let them drive their kids to school without fear of deportation?  Or will she fall into the clutches of the unmerciful xenophobes like that racist Sheriff Arpaio in Arizona?

And when will she answer what now appears to be a growing controversy over her political rightwing consultants illegally mining employee information from state data banks?  She must say something and soon as several legislators are now requesting the Attorney General to investigate the illegal activity.  Lets see how she handles this.

Three cheers for President Obama. That is a good and right thing to do.

Not to sound cynical, but it's simple election year politics. Otherwise Governor Martinez and the rest of the Republicans would be screaming very loudly. The Latino vote can swing a couple of swing states, like New Mexico.

Expect daily announcements like this until the election. All for the working class. Make the rich pay. Obama is a good politician and will probably win back his base. Expect him to turn his back on it the minute the last vote is counted, just like he did in 2008.
