Pointing At President Obama: Has Jan Brewer Lost Her Mind?
Who’s Jan Brewer, you ask? Nobody special, really. Brewer is the governor of Arizona, who has gone at President Barack Obama many times over their political differences, but has really taken the cake with her most recent disrespectful act.
Brewer waited for the POTUS, who was touching down in Arizona for a stop on a tour that will see him push initiatives he addressed in his State of the Union address. As he came down the steps, Brewer greeted him with a handwritten letter inviting him to dinner so that the two could talk. As she did so, he noted that the last time the two of them met, she misrepresented him in her retelling of the meeting, and said he did not want such a thing to happen again.
The president, of course, was referring to Brewer’s book, Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border.
That’s when things got interesting, as the video will (only somewhat, unfortunately) show.
“I was talking, and I talk with my hands. I’ve always been kind of animated.”
The “governess” later added “I thought he was kind of thin-skinned” as she expressed annoyance at the fact that he walked away while she was trying to finish a sentence. Really?
We’re talking about a president who has, for the duration of his presidency, been short on gaffes, temper, and emotion while withstanding great pressure and largely unearned contempt because of the color of his skin. I imagine he’s getting tired of dealing with everybody’s complaints, and he doesn’t have to stand there and listen to the requests of a governor who blasted him in her book.
He’s the president. Why is it that the folks with the least respect for him have the greatest sense of entitlement to his time and attention?
