Gov. Brewer: Obama 'lectured me'
Politico44 ^ | 10/21/11 | MJ LEE

Posted on 10/21/2011 8:02:54 AM PDT by ColdOne

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer skewers President Barack Obama in a new book, saying the president was “patronizing” and “condescending” when she met him at the White House last summer.

“We sat down and started with some chitchat,” she writes in her autobiography, according to the Arizona Republic. “But after a few minutes, the president’s tone got serious - and condescending.”

The Republican governor not only accuses Obama of having been “patronizing” during their Oval Office sit-down, but also says the president “lectured me,” the paper quotes Brewer as saying in “Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border.”

Brewer had at the time described her talk with Obama as cordial, the paper writes. A White House readout of their meeting in June 2010 described Obama’s talk with Brewer as “a good meeting” in which they discussed issues including border security and comprehensive immigration reform.

Lectured by a man whose only life experience before becoming President was having two autobiographies supposedly written by himelf (joke!) extolling his non accomplishments.

Perhaps if the Gov had been more accurate in her immediate characterization of the meeting...:

“It was waste of time to be lectured to by a man uninterested in listening, and incapable executing the responsiblities of the office.”

Is Jan Brewer a wallflower?

She should have gotten into Obama’s face and lectured HIM at the White House meeting, and then told the public exactly what she said and what he said.

After Baraq is defeated, I’m guessing he’ll run for President of Kenya. It’s not as good as POTUS, but probably a leg up on being a commentator on MSNBC.

I'm sure that it was -- from the president's perspective. Obama has a glass jaw. If anybody ever lands a glove on him in a debate he'll flip out.

Is there anything anywhere in Obama's biography which indicates that he has encountered the buffeting which brings us all the gift of humility?

We cavalierly describe him as the Manchurian Candidate or the Manchurian Marxist and there is a grain of truth in the description of an individual who has been groomed to play a role. In a sense Obama is like The Last Emperor of China, coddled within a bubble and prepared by a series of communist mandarins until he reached the Oval Office. I could discern no point in his career when he had to perform on an equal level against his peers. He gained acceptance and promotion because of his race and because he was accepted into a leftist elitist cult. He needed only perform on a forensic level. He had only to give good speeches. This is more than affirmative action, although that certainly played a part.

When individuals such as Edward VIII or the last Emperor of China obtain power they do so as sociopaths without the absolutely indispensable quality of human feeling.

Thus the Manchurian candidate takes on a robot like quality, a worldview of a sociopath. Such an individual can be extremely dangerous.

Once again I grope for an explanation of Obama's connection to the Wall Street occupiers and what might be motivating Obama to associate himself with what on the surface appears to be a politically toxic demonstration. Are we getting close to it here?

IMO 0bummer and his leftist shadow backers have tried many things hoping to incite violence - that is, hoping to incite reactive violence. Or reactive outrage, and reactive fear and trembling. They’ve all failed. Here’s a partial list from memory, in no particular order, no doubt I’m missing some:

1. AttackWatch - became an instant internet joke-a-thon

2. A previous WH website “if you see/hear something fishy” with instructions to report on the WH site - even more lame-o than AttackWatch, fizzled to nothing almost immediately

3. Flashmobs - very likely coordinated by various 0bummer related entities such as “social media” people, ACORN or ACORN spinoffs/renames, but they petered out for the most part. The hope was to get “whitey” to react violently, with cries of “racism” and “we need gun control” or even more clampdowns. Unfortunately the flashmob participants lost enthusiasm, or the pay ran out, or it didn’t spark a lot of new ones, etc.

4. FBI and DHS memos about the Real Terrorists - white, likely veterans, gun totin’, Bible clinging, Constitution quoting dangerous radicals. Janet’s memo had to be rescinded, the FBI one was more recent

5. Arrest of the camo clad country folk in - was it Michigan? The dangerous gang who planned mayhem against cops and Muslims? And had to be let go since it was obvious they were no danger to anyone except possibly themselves? IMO 0bummer was hoping it would scare the pants off us all and maybe lead to arrests of other such “militias”.

6. The union “uprising” in Wisconsin - hoping it would spread to every city and every state and cow all us non-unionthugs into servile submission and fear. Didn’t work at all. Backfired.

7. Now the OWSer stinkfest - getting a bit too “ripe” like bad compost, rather than spreading and creating fear and trembling and they may have hoped, violence.

8. And of course, Gunwalker - they had high, high hopes for this one - more gun control, more mayhem, and who knows what else. Arming Chicago gangs, and maybe other in country (US) bad people. Now discovered, now blowing up in their faces but good.

These fools in the WH which includes all his helpers, handlers, speech writers, backers, enablers, and so on actually are very stupid. “Evil” doesn’t necessarily mean “Genius”.

I think you answered this question in one of your earlier posts, when you implied Obama has to be reading the polls as ominous for him, and he is noticeably frustrated.

The occupiers are also conveniently bashing capitalists and capitalism. He rightly sees that private sector stakeholders (truth be known, that's all of us) who are going to deny him a second term.

I think it would have been laughable if the Wannabe Dictator had attempted to exhibit his arrogance with Margaret Thatcher or Golda Meir. The Whimp Wannabe Dictator would have had his arrogance thrown back at him.
