TAKEDOWN ON THE TARMAC!… Brewer Blasts Barack in AZ (VIDEO!)

After Obama ambushes her on the tarmac…
Brewer chews out Obama!

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer points at President Barack Obama after he arrived at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2012, in Mesa, Ariz. Brewer greeted Obama and what she got was a book critique. Of her book. The two leaders engaged in an intense conversation at the base of Air Force One’s steps. Both could be seen smiling, but speaking at the same time. Asked moments later what the conversation was about, Brewer, a Republican, said: “He was a little disturbed about my book.” Brewer recently published a book, “Scorpions for Breakfast,” something of a memoir that describes her years growing up and defends her signing of Arizona’s controversial law cracking down on illegal immigrants, which Obama opposes. Brewer also handed Obama an envelope with a handwritten invitation for Obama to return to Arizona to meet her for lunch and to join her for a visit to the border. (AP /Haraz N. Ghanbari)

Here’s the video, via KPHO:

President Thin-Skin arrived in Phoenix, Arizona today and was greeted by Governor Jan Brewer.  With all the major problems facing our country and the state of Arizona he chose, instead, to complain about her book.  She had called him…gasp!…patronizing.
According to USA Today,

President Obama and Gov. Jan Brewer had a tense exchange Wednesday, sparring over the Arizona governor’s portrayal of Obama as “patronizing” in her memoir.  Obama was greeted by Brewer soon after Air Force One landed in Phoenix this afternoon. The president was handed a handwritten letter by Brewer and they spoke intensely for a few minutes, according to a White House pool report. At one point, she was pointing her finger at him and at another, they were talking at the same time, seemingly over each other, according to pooler Carrie Buddof Brown of Politico.

“He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast,” Brewer told reporters travelling with Obama. “I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt. “

Obama did the same thing to Bobby Jindal.

    “I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt. “

    Probably explains how he approaches the U.S Constitution as well.

  • retire05

    Looks like Governor Brewer is giving The One what-for. And he’s doing that power move by putting his hand on her arm.

    Someone needs to tell that bastard he is not King. At least not yet.

    And no surprise he read the Cliff Notes of her book. His whole life has been one big Cliff Note.

  • Saragosa

    The woman should learn a little respect. If not for the man, then for the office.

  • Saragosa

    She can write whatever she wants….but pointing in the presidents face on the tarmac is ridiculous.

  • Adi

    Like most (if not all) the Americans, Gov. Jan Brewer “gotten a little bit lazy” and failed to notice He is too busy to govern, instead of reading some book.

    The onus is on her. The Wohn is simply just too perfect.

    You are willing to say that without knowing what he said to provoke her? You really assume a lot about his behavior that may not be true.

    “That woman” is the governor of the State of Arizona, and that man filed a lawsuit against her state for passing a law that neither he nor his Attorney General read nor understood. And he failed to fire that Attorney General.

  • bigL

    Good for her. Obama also has the Cliff’s notes for Americanism which left out a lot of exceptional stuff

  • Adi


    Are you implying He read the Obamacare word by word?

    Or just “excerpts”?

  • mackykam

    She should have kneed him when he put his paws on her.

  • 66chevelle

    Saragosa, at least she didn’t use her middle finger like Barry did with Hillary. And retire05 is right about that arm-grab–low class move, even for the JEF.

  • Voice of Reason

    Shes a Republican and hes a Democrat. That what those kind do. They point fingers at each other, complain, argue, , disagree, blame.

    There, I have corrected your spelling.

  • Jim

    Good for Gov. Brewer.

    and 66chevelle is correct, when can we expect a passive aggressive middle finger against Gov. Brewer like he did with Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton?

  • WillofLa

    I would like to know, which one of them was the most nervous? Obama, knowing full well that sueing the Governor’s state for following the Constitution on immigration was not only stupid, but criminal which would be grounds for empeachment in a heartbeat, or Brewer knowing that Obama brings with him his Executive Order pen in his pocket and could do all kinds of damage to her and her state in a second if he wanted. I’ll bet that it was Obama.

    I’ll bet that unless he really is totally ignorant and is a fake, and really doesn’t know that it is wrong to not follow the Constitution when it says that we are supposed to keep out all illegal alien’s with whatever means possible, and really doesn’t know you aren’t supposed to sue a state for doing what the Constitution says to do, and really dosen’t know that to sue a state who is being over run by illegal Mexican aliens, who have seized a small section of the Southwestern corner of the state in order to make it easier to run drugs into that state, but instead are supposed to activate the military in order to run out or kill the drug runner’s at any cost, and then assist in any way to seal up our entire border in order to keep anything like that from ever happening again, would be damn nervous meeting with the governor who he sued and committed a crime against that state.

    Gov. Brewer by all rights could have military MP’s waiting there to arrest the President as soon as he steps foot on Arizona soil, and he couldn’t do a damn thing about it, and would have to go peacefully to one of Gov. Brewer’s fine jails.

  • #12: He’s no democrat. Try again.

    Good for Brewer, she will stand her ground. IF we had a president that FOLLOWED the laws of our land, she would get along with him famously.

  • retire05

    #15, WillofLa, bet Sheriff Joe has a pair of pink underwear just in Obama’s size.

    Thou Shalt Not Write Bad Things About Obama

    The Republican governor was seeking a court order that would require the federal government to take extra steps, such as more border fencing, to protect Arizona until the border is controlled.

    Bolton said Brewer’s claim that Washington has failed to protect Arizona from an “invasion” of illegal immigrants was a political question that isn’t appropriate for the court to decide.

    “It is but the latest chapter in a story that Arizonans know all too well: The federal government ignores its constitutional and statutory duty to secure the border. Federal courts avert their eyes. American citizens pay the price,” Brewer said.


    I could only hope that every Governor would fight for the citizens the serve like the Heroic Gov. Brewer. She has hope for an audience that would like in the White House but she was ignored. Then took measure to sue. Pointing her finger is little compared to what Obama has done to her state.


    Obama the citizens of Arizona are no Laughing.

    He treated her like dog c#$P by this administration.

    Drudge has a story about Obama getting off of Air Force One in Arizona, greeting Republican governor Jan Brewer, and immediately giving her a piece of his mind. Evidently our president did not appreciate something Brewer wrote about him. According to the pool report, they had a testy exchange from which the president walked away as Brewer was still speaking.

    Sound familiar? Bobby Jindal got the same treatment when Obama came to visit Louisiana and the governor met him on the tarmac. Jindal would later recount in his book:

    I was expecting words of concern about the oil spill, worry about the pending ecological disaster, and words of confidence about how the federal government was here to help. Or perhaps he was going to vent about BP’s slow response. But no, the president was upset about something else. And he wanted to talk about, well, food stamps. Actually, he wanted to talk about a letter that my administration had sent to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack a day earlier.

    The letter was rudimentary, bureaucratic, and ordinary. .  .  . We were simply asking the federal government to authorize food stamps for those who were now unemployed because of the oil spill. Governors regularly make these sorts of requests to the federal government when facing disaster.

    But somehow, for some reason, President Obama had personalized this. And he was upset.

    There was not a word about the oil spill. He was concerned about looking bad because of the letter. “Careful,” he said to me, “this is going to get bad for everyone.”


    Obama is PATRONIZING.

  • TomI

    I guess that puts his theory of white people walking to the other side of the street to avoid the black guy.

  • Patty

    But no, the president was upset about something else. And he wanted to talk about, well, food stamps. Actually, he wanted to talk about a letter that my administration had sent to Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack a day earlier.


    Food stamp President. They have ridicule Bush. If Bush was half as belligerent as Obama. He would be kicked to [email protected] and back.

    In an interview with Fox News this morning, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer said Attorney General Eric Holder must be held accountable for Operation Fast and Furious.

    Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer came out this week claiming he didn’t tell Holder about gun walking techniques being used in Fast and Furious, but Brewer isn’t buying it and said Holder is responsible for every program that comes out of the Department of Justice.

    “The buck stops with Eric Holder,” She said.

    At this point, 30 members of Congress have called for Holder’s resignation.


  • Patty

    I have to respect woman like Governor Brewer and Sarah Palin. Both extraordinary Governors. With heart and with courage, that is something refreshing when Obama administration acts like wimps.

  • KornKing

    Saragosa-I like that-he’s the president and she shouldn’t point her finger at him? He’s been lifting his middle finger at the productive people of the USA the past 3 years and you have the gonads to say something like that?

  • Talk about “thin-skinned”! What a crybaby.

    Sam Rayburn, former Speaker of the House, is reported to have taken FDR to task when he thought FDR was ignoring him:

    “Looky here, Mr. President. By God, I’m taking to you and you better listen.”

    Seems Jan Brewer showed the man who thinks he is the reincarnation of FDR the respect he deserves.

    Jan Brewer is the governor of her state. Perhaps Obama should himself, show respect to the Office of Governor of Arizona.

  • Adi

    Gov Brewer would be a better president than Barry. I believe there are many other women in the country that if given the opportunity could be a good President some day.

  • KLD

    #3, she has respect—for the Office of the President. That doesn’t mean she has to roll belly up for the man currently in it. The man in it shows no respect for what that Office represents (us), or what this country represents for that matter.

  • 66chevelle

    You know, this guy Obama has a real problem with women, especially powerful women. It doesn’t matter if they’re Democrat or Republican. I guarantee you Hillary, Pelosi and Feinstein all can’t stand him. I don’t even think Michelle likes him very much. Mommy Jarrett may be the only woman in his life whom he truly respects.

    In spite of “Obama Girl”, all of the adolescent lust in 2008, all of the swooning and fainting at his events, most women have by now sensed the passionless nothingness he exudes where women are concerned. Many women may also be uneasy about his obsequious fawning over islam, and wonder if he secretly admires the way muslim men treat their women.

    When he is finally brought low–and he will be–it will be at the hand of some woman he has scorned and dismissed, and he will never see it coming until it is too late.

    Obama’s Fast and Furious gun running program cost the life of border patrol agent Brian Terry. Yes, it was his program, he and Holder both knew about it (or they’re stupid).

    Gov. Brewer is being sued by Obama’s DOJ for FOLLOWING Federal law. If this governor is mad, she has a reason.

    Obama just stands there and smiles. He doesn’t care about Brian Terry, unborn babies, or people losing their jobs or houses. How this imposter even has a chance at re-election is sad.

    Knowing that the far Southwest portion of the state is being held by Mexican dope dealers in order to make crossing the border with dope easier. I’m sure if Gov. Brewer was to call out the Arizona National Guard, Obama would blow a gasket and order the Marines down there to stop the Guard from attacking an invasion, and legally an act of war on the part of Mexico whether be it Mexican military forces or by permission of Calderon or not, and since it is an act of war Obama is in violation of the Constitution to protect the nation from invasion and acts of war. Obama should have his Presidency nullified immideately. But who has the guts to oppose this little dictator and will not cause a Constitutional crisis that no one knows what or how to do anything about it.

    Gov. Brewer has the legal right to have Obama arrested as soon as he stepped off the plane. She could have two Army MP’s standing by her and order them to take him into custody right then and there, and no one could do a damn thing about it. But how much guts does it take? I don’t know but I think I would like to see someone do it no matter. They have the legal right because the nation is under invasion, and acts of war have been committed against the U.S. by Mexico. Let’s see what the liberals would say about amnesty then.

    Remember when obama was telling his supporters to get in the face of people who disagreed with his policies which was before he he was calling on everybody to be civil. he is leading by example by getting in these republican governors faces, but they are not from Chicago and democrats did not elect them. Of course he got an excerpt in a briefing because he is much to busy golfing, taking vacations, and campaigning to actually read any books besides what could the smartest man in the world learn from a republican.

  • Give the man a break- he thinks he is the King and that she is a royal provincial governor, and in his mind (which was formed in former colonies), it’s natural for the King to berate royal governor’s.

    As usual though, this is not reality- he isn’t King, she’s not a provincial governor, they’re both heads of soverign states, and it is not usual or natural for a President to lecture a Governor. I think every day he slips farther from reality.
