President Irked at Governorís Show of Disrespect
Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 27 Jan 2012 | John Semmens

Posted on 01/27/2012 8:27:59 PM PST by John Semmens

President Obama expressed his “profound disappointment and disgust” with what he labeled “an unacceptable display of disrespect” toward him from Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (R).

“Ms. Brewer has to come to terms with her rank in the pecking order,” Obama said. “She is, after all, merely a governor of a relatively small and unimportant state. Regardless of how she feels about me, it is inappropriate for her to seem to be publicly criticizing her nation’s president.”

The President’s ire was sparked by more than the highly visual face-off the two had on the tarmac of the Williams-Gateway Airport during Obama’s recent campaign visit to Arizona. Governor Brewer also has written a book–“Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border”–that the President contends “scurrilously defames and discredits me.”

Obama hinted that the Justice Department’s lawsuit against the State of Arizona for its effrontery of attempting to enforce federal immigration laws could be expanded to include charges against Brewer for “defamation of character.” “It’s one thing for the state to face a lawsuit, the Governor bears no personal liability no matter how the case is decided,” Attorney General Eric Holder pointed out. “But a finding of libel against her for what she wrote in her book could be financially crushing. The cost of a legal defense itself could be daunting.”

Holder denied that the President was conducting a vendetta against Brewer. “Governor Brewer isn’t more than a tiny blip on the President’s radar,” Holder said. “It’s the principle of the thing that matters. People must be disabused of the idea that they can vilify the President without facing dire personal consequences.”

A post-election Executive Order authorizing the removal of state officials whose actions endanger national security or serve to undermine the people’s confidence in the federal government is reportedly in the works. “Arizona’s Governor Brewer isn’t the only one who’s gotten out of line,” Press Secretary Jay Carney observed. “There are some elections officials in Georgia who’ve proven supremely irritating to the President.”

It says, “semi-news/semi-satire”: I hope the latter but fear the former.

“There are some elections officials in Georgia who’ve proven supremely irritating to the President.”

That one deserves a semi-news, semi-satire all its own! Endless possibilities with your clever mind.

Nice work, John! You had me going right up to “...merely a governor of a relatively small and unimportant state.”
