Skip to comments.Jan Brewer on Tarmac Face Off: Obama "Tense...Thin-Skinned" (AUDIO)
Posted on 01/25/2012 9:10:25 PM PST by montag813
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!
We all knew BHO2 is a donkey’s patoot.
Gov. Jan Brewer for VP.
More proof that 0bama is the lowest scum on earth.
I do. Just can't post them here because this is a family friendly site...
Apparently Obama’s biggest fan is ...... himself.
I can’t say what I’m thinking because I don’t want the law at my door in about 2 minutes.
Guess he got no “bounce” from the SotU speech and took it out on the first Republican he met.
As a governor, you have to corner zero on the tarmac right before he's going to campaign against you if you want any audience.
ZERO HATES THE STATES OF THE UNION.
Sorry, we still need her here in Arizona!
This isn’t the first time the crybaby in chief whined. He complained to Marueen Dowd when she wrote about his ears, and he jacked Joe Lieberman up against a wall in the Senate and wouldn’t stop “shaking” his hand.
He’s also probably looking for opportunities to look “confrontational” as part of his campaign to shore up his base.
“ZERO HATES THE STATES OF THE UNION.”
All 57 of ‘em!!!;)
“He just doesn’t get it!” Awesome.
Georgia is going to take top billing tomorrow.
Stand tall Mrs. Brewer, B.Hussein O. needs to grow some Presidential balls and start showing respect for ALL Americans not just his Liberal Econ. jerks. he makes me physically ill.
lets be sure to send him home in Nov. where ever home is to him!!!!.
he’s a bigger fan than Moochelle: She doesn’t even vacation with him.
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.
Our Arizona Maggie Thatcher.
“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!
My loathing of the illegitimate bisexual drug-using Marxist Kenyan Muslim Usurper knows no limits.
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.
There's more than one York, more than one Virgin island, more than one Brunswick; Medina, Riverside, Long Beach, Saigon, London, Ontario, Orleans, Laredo, Nogales, Memphis...........
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.
