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!
I strongly disagree with the governor! She loves our country, but Obama hates the U.S.A.!
Jan, next time don’t veto a “birther bill”. He is not natural born anyway you look at it and the Constitution needs to be upheld!
His greatest asset according to Obots is how wonderful and nice he is. It would be great if the not so nice Obama came out in such a way that they were couldn’t help but notice. They think of him like a “Mr. Rogers” or a “Father Knows Best” type only much nicer, squeaky clean and oh so very, very wonderful.

MrDaddyLongLegs, txhurl, I hope you don’t mind me butting in!
I know a little about American Samoa, but Samoa, not so much. I got curious and looked it up:
The country has a proud and spirited tradition; the national anthem is “The Banner of Freedom”:
“Samoa, arise and raise your flag, your crown!
Samoa, arise and raise your flag, your crown!
Look at those stars that are waving on it:
This is the symbol of Jesus, who died on it for Samoa.
Oh, Samoa, hold fast your power forever.
Do not be afraid; God is our foundation, our freedom.
Samoa, arise: your flag is waving, your crown!”
How cool is THAT???!!!
He’s NOT the President. Thus no words are needed.
I wouldn’t call it pendantic OR petulant. More like justifiable pride... :-)
Do we have anyone from American Samoa on FR? I have a question:
According to Wikipedia, unemployment in American Samoa was 29.8 % in 2005. 2041 workers were laid off in 2009 due to Chicken of the Sea closing down their tuna canning plant in response to U.S. minimum wage legislation being forced upon the territory in 2007 (by Republican action, no less!) and despite the protests of the local gov’t. Yet in 2010, unemployment is stated to be 23.8%. (I am not sure if this is before or after FURTHER layoffs at Starkist, in 2010.) The total population in 2007 was only 68,200 people (growing at an average of 2.3% per year.)
So, the question is, where are the jobs coming from, or is this another case of baloney unemployment statistics?
To be clear, the local gov’t of American Samoa was fighting to have the minimum wage NOT apply to the territory, as they knew that would force the layoffs.
When the truth about obama comes out—and it will—the nation will be shocked. Remember when JFK was shot? It took years before the people learned he was a scum bag. BUT the truth will come out.
Maybe this will be Obama at his last press conference, before heading to Newt's Inauguration:
