And the Governor had to make an ass of herself:
Brewer, Obama exchange tense words over book, immigration at airport
The following is a White House pool report filed shortly after President Barack Obama's arrival in Chandler, Arizona:
"President Obama arrived in Phoenix at 3:15 pm local time, finding the chilly weather of Iowa giving way to sunny skies and temperatures in the high 60s.
He stepped off Air Force One at 3:28 pm and was greeted by Gov. Jan Brewer. She handed him a handwritten letter in an envelope and they spoke intensely for a few minutes. At one point, she pointed her finger at him.

The governor is a blemish on this state.
McCain also was typically nasty about Obama's visit:
In his trademark combative style, Mr. McCain urged the president to "tear himself away from his taxpayer-funded campaign stop" to make his first-ever visit to the Arizona-Mexico border.
"It's a quick flight, and I'm sure the citizens living there, who struggle every day with the consequences of a porous border, would appreciate the president finally acknowledging that securing the border is a top priority for the federal government," he said.

Arizona and Alabama, twin national disgraces. "Lizard Woman" Brewer proves every day she doesn't have a shred of class.

Would Grampy McShame have been happier if Obama's campaign were funded by the Koch brothers?

Some tweets about this:

If PBO had his finger in @GovBrewer's face (a black man disrespecting a white woman), we'd be having a different discussion

POTUS 2 Brewer - Don't put that finger in my face, no telling where that thing has been! Tell Joe we are on his ass like glue.

After sticking her finger in the president's face, Jan Brewer vaults into the lead in the GOP presidential primary. #nastierthanNewt #p2

Jan Brewer, Obama Face Off Over Book, Immigration Issues huff.to/zmNat3 Who shakes a finger in the president's face? Not an adult!
Can you imagine if a female, or male for that matter, would have gotten in GWBush's face & stuck their finger out at him???
President Obama greeted in AZ by an alligator handbag. No wait, that's Jan @GovBrewer #p2 #TFY

POTUS has such restraint. I'd take her finger wagging butt to the border and toss her to the other side.
So went and took a look at Brewer's book -- - janedrake - 01-25-2012 11:31 PM
Okay, so I went to Amazon to take a look at this book - can one really tell a book by its cover? Well, this one has a big gold sticker with "Foreword by Governor Sarah Palin" on it --
Moving on, in the very first pages of the book, Brewer compares being waterboarded to how it felt for her to sign the racist, anti-American bill she fought so hard for.
She then goes on to place at Pres. Obama's feet the blame for years of immigration policy that occurred under Bush, and gets in this little "gem":
Quote:"I call (the bill) a wake up call. I signed it to send a clear, unequivocal message to Washington... And it's a message that Washington very clearly doesn't want to hear:
FACTOIDS ON OBAMA ADMINISTRATION'S ACTIONS ON BORDER SECURITY:
Posted at the WH website in August 2010
(Keep in mind Brewer's book was published in Nov. 2011) These are just a small sample of actions the administration has taken:
Doubled the personnel assigned to Border Enforcement Security Task Forces by deploying additional Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agents;
Tripled the number of ICE intelligence analysts focused on cartel violence along the Southwest border;
Quintupled deployments of ICE Border Liaison Officers.
Begun screening, for the first time, 100 percent of southbound rail shipments for illegal weapons, drugs, and cash;
Begun two new DEA SWB enforcement groups in El Paso and Phoenix, and added 25 new DEA intelligence analysts;
Deployed two new FBI Border Corruption Task Forces in Del Rio and Houston.
Added 200 new U.S. Marshal service positions including Deputy U.S. Marshals and Asset Forfeiture Criminal Investigators at the Southwest Border to increase fugitive apprehension and cross border violent crime response; to identify and seize the financial assets of the cartels; to increase court security and prisoner operations; and to investigate and mitigate security threats and improve security awareness for judiciary and other court personnel;
Much more at the link:
And this piece of work (Brewer) had the nerve to wave her finger in Pres. Obama's face -- Brewer is a disgrace.

You get a clear sense Miss right wing nut wanted to describe the President as "uppity" but was over ruled by her publisher. Clearly this women thinks she is superior to any black man even if they are President.

Quote:That's it -- simple and direct. Kind of like me. Kind of like Arizona."
No, YOU'RE simple!
I can't help but think about the movie Blazing Saddles - NJMaverick - 01-26-2012 01:18 PM
and President Obama's arrival in AZ was similar to when Cleavon Little arrived as the new sheriff of Rock Ridge
RE: AirForce One has just arrived here in AZ - Born_A_Truman - 01-26-2012 02:14 PM
Lol RT @Only4RM RT @ElayneBoosler I've lost all respect for Pres. Obama since he didn't bite off Jan Brewer's finger.
