Skip to comments.Jan Brewer on Tarmac Face Off: Obama "Tense...Thin-Skinned" (AUDIO)

A few hours after she was bizarrely confronted by Barack Obama on the airport tarmac, Gov. Jan Brewer went on KFYI's Mike Broomhead Show to give us the details on what happened as the President faced off with the Arizona governor - generating national headlines and derailing his post-State of the Union message.
Brewer was stunned as Obama dispensed with the pleasantries and immediately scolded Brewer for her portrayal of their frosty, July 2010 Oval Office meeting in her memoir, Scorpions for Breakfast.
Brewer said Obama was "uh, a little tense". She said she tried to show respect but that Obama acted "thin-skinned", and complained about how she described their earlier meeting, in which Brewer made clear how little time she was given to speak, and how Obama condescendingly lectured her about immigration reform, and did not want to hear about border violence and the costs of illegal aliens to Arizona.
Here is the full audio, well worth a listen
Interestingly, this was not the first time that Obama acted so petulantly on an airport tarmac. After the BP oil spill, Obama gave Gov. Bobby Jindal a similar treatment, as the Weekly Standard details tonight.
Gov. Brewer, you did us proud today. You showed respect, but when offered none in return, you did not back down. Well done!
Yep, he refused to accept the letter from Perry and made him give it to his staff. Demeaning little Obastard.
Brewer isn't intimidated. She's facing down the Mexican mafia in their attempt to takeover Arizona the way they did California, and a cheap street thug like Hussein doesn't bother her a bit.
Chewed him up and spit him out.
Oh, No she did int!!??
but one day we won't if we don't stand tall and get this guy voted out of office.
He will not put fear into me...I'm sure he is not liking the publicity that he got from his trip today...he must learn it is not I ME MINE that is important in his job and he better soon learn that...
You know, as much as zero hates Texas, I could see where his count of 57 states includes the conventional plus PR, Guam, ?Samoa? and the 5 states Texas can be any time it wishes.
bump for later

What a pansy! Who gets off a plane for what amounts to a business meeting and begins bitching about how someone described your last metting. And then engage in the exact behavior again.
Geeze, someone that guy some man pants!
Oh, No she did int!!??
Forgot to add... /sarcasm
we still have freedom of speech, the last I checked...
I said I can’t say what I’m thinking because I don’t want the law at my door in 2 minutes. What I’m thinking goes beyond freedom of speech.
Otherwise, you are right about that evil bastard.

“You showed respect..”
A mistake. He deserves none - and the old “respect the office” mantra is pure BS. If she had called him out, he probably would have made himself a spectacle. This was a missed opportunity.
Sorry to be pedantic, but i live in Samoa and we aint part of the USA, Samoa is an Independent State since 1962 celebrating 50 years this year. You are confusing us with American Samoa a small place with about 30,000 residents 1 hour flight from here. Not the same place by any means. Cheers
Classic traits of a narcissist.
I’m sorry. Didn’t mean to offend. Who ARE y’all a part of?
What and a$$! I can’t wait until he is trounced as bad as Reagan trounced Carter!
