She is pro immigration, she put us in debt to 2 billion dollars just in the state. Spent all the money educating the "CHILDREN" whom btw are still failing. Gave tax credits to anyone who bought a hybrid vehicle or alternative vehicle, that put us in the hole. When pushed to pass pro gun bills she did just that but when pushed to pass the last dozen that went across her desk she vetoed all of them.  What more is there to tell, other than the obvious that was posted above.  She fits the socialist communist role well.

Janet Napoloreno

Janet Napolitano, Governor of Arizona:
Janet Napolitano, a pro-business, pro-choice centrist Democrat, was elected as Arizona Governor in 2002, and reelected in 2006. Gov. Napolitano is a strong leader who converted a $1 billion budget deficit in 2003 into a $300 million surplus in 2006, without raising state taxes, but aided by a 4% job growth rate.

In November 2005, Time magazine named her one of the top five U.S. governors. For 2006-07, Janet Napolitano was elected as Chair of the National Governors Association, the first woman elected to that prestigious position.

Special Notoriety:
In 1991, Janet Napolitano, then a well-regarded partner in the law firm of Lewis & Roca, LLP, served as the attorney for law professor Anita Hill when Hill testified against U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas.

Janet Napolitano was reportedly considered by Democrat John Kerry to be his 2004 running mate for the White House. She was asked to address both the 2000 and 2004 Democratic Party Conventions.
Experience Prior to Governor:

1983-1984 - Law clerk for the Honorable Mary Schroeder of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals

1984-1993 - Attorney with Lewis & Roca, a top Arizona law firm. Napolitano was made a firm partner in 1989.

1993-1998 - U.S. Attorney for District of Arizona, appointed by President Bill Clinton. As U.S. Attorney, she supervised the prosecution of more than 6,000 immigration cases.

1998-2002 - Attorney General of Arizona

Gov. Napolitano on Issues & Priorities:
Per Gov. Napolitano, the most important challenges facing Arizona are "the education of our children, security of our border, and (managing) the rapid rate of Arizona's growth."

In a 2006 interview, she stated, "I believe firmly that education is the gateway to prosperity. That's why we've worked hard to implement voluntary full-day kindergarten statewide, and to support our teachers with a historic pay raise and training."

(See below for Major 2007 Initiatives and Projects by Gov. Janet Napolitano.)
Gov. Napolitano on Immigration:
Gov. Napolitano is outspoken about "the Federal government's failure to fulfill its responsibilities in securing our border and providing for a realistic and functional immigration policy."

To combat illegal immigration, the governor has opted to: crackdown on employers who hire undocumented workers; catch forgers of I.D. documents; push for more National Guards and Homeland Security measures to deter border crossings.

Conservatives deride Napolitano's refusal to support legislation targeting illegal immigrants already in the U.S. working for U.S. employers.
Personal :

Birth - November 29, 1957 in New York City to Leonard and Jane Napolitano. The family moved to New Mexico from Pittsburgh when Janet was 6 years old.

Education - Sandia High School. B.S. in political science, 1979, summa cum laude with Phi Beta Kappa honors, University of Santa Clara, where she was class valedictorian. J.D., 1983, University of Virginia.

Family - single

Faith - Christian, Methodist denomination

Hobbies - Avid moviegoer and reader

Janet Napolitano is a breast cancer survivor, and had a mastectomy in 2000, three weeks before she addressed the 2000 Democratic Convention.
The Janet Napolitano Persona:
Janet Napolitano is an energetic, outgoing woman with a love of sports and the outdoors. She relaxes by hiking and river rafting, and has hiked trails and mountains around the world, including Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. She's a diehard fan of the Arizona Diamondbacks baseball team.

As a child, Janet played the clarinet and became accomplished at the guitar. In law school, she shared a home with three male law students, and recalls playing a lot of bridge. She's a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts of America.

The Rumors:
"Napolitano, who has never been married or had children, has long been the subject of a whisper campaign about her sexuality, including some dirty campaign tricks in 2002 when 'vote gay' fliers were posted next to her campaign signs. She is not gay, she has said, 'just a straight, single workaholic.' " ––- The Arizona Republic, Sept 24, 2006

Gov Napolitano opposes same-sex marriage, and supports an Arizona law barring gay marriages. She opposed the Federal Marriage amendment to the U.S. Constitution on the grounds of states rights.
The Napolitano Family:
The governor's father, Dr. Leonard Napolitano, is Dean Emeritus of the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. He and Janet are close, and visit each other frequently. Dr. Leonard has been enormously supportive of his daughter's career path and goals.

Janet's brother, Dr. Leonard Napolitano, Jr., a widower with a school-aged daughter and son, is a respected engineer at Sandia National Laboratories in California. Janet, who has no children, is particularly close to her niece and nephew.
Major 2007 Initiatives and Projects by Gov. Janet Napolitano:

As Governor of Arizona
"Gov. Janet Napolitano signed six executive orders on the first day of her second term... Fresh off an impressive re-election win in November, the governor seemed ready to spend a little political capital. Among her executive orders, she moved to:

• Formalize the creation of a Growth Cabinet with a mission to work with communities to create a smart-growth plan in the next 120 days. Communities that don't abide by guidelines could be blocked from receiving some state funding for roads and other needs.

• Limit construction-related pollution on state land and bar the use on state property of leaf blowers and gas-powered mowers.

• Implement a three-year plan to improve care in nursing homes and other long-term housing facilities, including ratings of the homes' quality on her Web site by July.

With her other three orders, Napolitano gave the Arizona Department of Transportation 90 days to present a list of mass-transit and rail options, laid out a low-interest financing scheme to provide dollars for water projects and directed the School Facilities Board to issue an Oct. 1 report for the construction of '21st-century schools.' "
Link Posted: 11/20/2008 6:24:12 AM EDT
If memory serves me right, Napolitano is disliked by pretty much every conservative in Arizona.

Aside from her involvement in letting millions of illegals into the country via her position of Governor of Arizona, she has no qualifications for the HS position.

The bright side? Her being part of Obamas cabinet will prevent her from ever running for President!

In 1991, while a partner with the private Phoenix law firm Lewis and Roca LLP, Napolitano served as attorney for Anita Hill. Anita Hill testified in the U.S. Senate that then U.S. Supreme Court nominee Clarence Thomas had addressed her inappropriately ten years earlier when she was his subordinate at the federal EEOC.

She's an ex federal prosecutor, an ex state AG and now (thank the Lord in Heaven) an ex state Governor.  So IMO, she is qualified to be head of DHS.  She's been an awful govenor, driving the state into debt, catering to illegals, endorsing an anti-American 9/11 memorial and using a thug as her second in command to strong arm legislators and business owners.



She's Janet Reno 2, which is why the Clinton administration 2 wants her.  At least in AZ we've seen the end of her.

It's up to the states, just as it was under Bush, and just as it would have been under McCain.  NONE of them were or are, even in the slightest degree, interested in stopping the flow of illegals.

What in her background leads you to believe she's qualified to keep this country safe from our many enemies?  Where does having been a federal prosecutor, attorney general and governor qualify her for the protection and security of the United States?

It gets her the hell out of my state.  

Seriously, she's f'ed up, and will be bad for the country.  However, it will hand all branches of Arizona Government to the Republicans, which will be good for Az.

I do. If we get hit again Obama and his Dem cronies will use it as an excuse to grandstand. The Patriot Act will look like a civil rights bill by comparison.

Head of DHS is more of a bureaucrat than head of one any of the departments under it.

A former AG with heavy executive experience seems to fit the bill.

Please note that thinking she is qualified to head a department does not mean that I agree with any of her positions.

Edit: doesn't mean that I think she is the best person for the job, either. That was not the original question. who I think is the best person for any job is not going to happen under this administration. (Not that it happened under the last, either).

I'd personally put Peter Schoomaker on it, or someone similar.

It's not her resume that worries me, it's  her philosphy.  I've met her a few times, she actually more centrist than is portrayed here, I hope she will try to do a good job.
She is the best of the bunch that has been picked for the cabinet so far.  I know that's not saying much.
Link Posted: 11/20/2008 7:02:10 AM EDT
I don't really understand all the "how is she qualified" questions.  She is just as qualified as Chertoff and Ridge.  For all the "how is she qualified" people - what are you looking for exactly?  How is she not qualified?

With that being said, I don't care for her policies.  However, if it wasn't her I'm sure Obama would find someone else with equally bad policies.
 
I've heard her speak in person before and I wasn't terribly impressed, but I'm not sure that being good at public speaking is a real important part of the job.
