(CNSNews.com) – “On November 6th, Americans will make a choice about what's right and what's wrong," Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told the conservative Values Voters summit in Washington on Saturday.

"Wrong is President Obama accumulating more debt than any president in our history," Brewer said. "Wrong is the fact that millions of Americans are unemployed. Wrong is supporting a change in the longstanding definition of marriage.

"Wrong is appointing federal judges who fail to protect life and the unborn. Wrong is our president apologizing for America when he travels abroad. Wrong is not supporting Israel 100 percent as our ally in the Middle East. And finally, wrong is his claiming greatness by blaming others for his failure."

Brewer then listed "what I believe is right."

"Right is calling a terrorist -- yes, a terrorist," she said to applause. "Right is calling a Christmas tree a Christmas tree. Right is not being afraid to salute the flag, wear a flag pin, say the Pledge of Allegiance -- and sing the National Anthem, unashamed, with a tear in our eye.

"Right is not being afraid to say those -- to say to those who are here illegally, you deserve no favoritism. Right is looking President Obama square in the eye, as I did, and saying, Mr. President, do your job. Secure our border."

Brewer said the thing that should bother Americans the most is "that we have a president who suggests that America is not an exceptional nation."

"What other country has sent its finest young men and women to fight on distant battlefields for justice and peace?" she asked. "What other nation ever rose to such strength...yet did not rise to conquer, but to protect? What other nation has acted not to dominate, but to liberate?

"We are an exceptional nation, all right,” Brewer said. “That's just a fact, written in blood and sacrifice of American patriots and their families."
