Yahoo News ^ | 01/26/2012 | Hazar N. Ghanbari

Longstanding tension between Republican Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and Democratic President Barack Obama flared into the public spotlight Wednesday just after Air Force One touched down in Phoenix. Brewer, who was on the tarmac to greet Obama, hand-delivered a letter before engaging the president "intensely" for several minutes, including pointing her finger directly at him, according to Politico's Carrie Budoff Brown, acting as a pool reporter for other media outlets.

America’s twinky little bully is lucky our Governor didn’t slam his Kenyan butt onto the ground.

I think I can read her lips. “Listen you twit, you don’t come to my state acting like a dictator. We have laws and I intend to enforce them. So get your butt back on air force one and tell Holder to read the constitution and get with the program.”

That may be the pose Obama takes when he’s being condescending, but to me, he looks submissive. Like the kid that’s getting yelled at by mom for bad grades.

He started complaining about her book the minute he got off the plane?
There might be an appropriate time and place to tell her he disagrees with her assesment of his time in office, but the very first thing he has to say?
He isn’t grown up enough for ten minutes of polite general conversation?
Wow, his narcissism is out of control.

“the minute he got off the plane”

He’s so used to making things up and saying them unchallenged that her criticism has probably been eating away at him and he had to address it immediately.
So his feet barely hit the tarmac and he tries to tell her that something that she knows happened didn’t happen the way she recollects. It’s obvious from the body language that she’s, uh—forcefully assuring him that her recollection is accurate, since she was there too.
You’re right. This Kenyan prima donna is living in his own cloud-cuckoo world. (`I have Spoken. Let It be Writ. Let It be Done.’)

Notice how cleverly that photograph has been cropped - look around the net or on FR, the original, uncropped photo looks like Obama is pushing Brewer with his right hand on her torso (evidently that photo was published before the Ministry of Truth was able to sanitize it).

Guess what Mr. Brilliance accomplished with his tantrum.

The Governor’s book has gone from 226,000 to 126 on Amazon in one day.

Hah!

Too bad she didn’t slap the crap out of him. Give him a little attitude adjustment.

Our jacka$$ in chief flew all the way to Arizona and the first thing out of his mouth is a criticism of something she printed about him in her book? Clearly he's not a narcissist.

Putting a hand on a person in such a manner is generally a sign of condescension. Its a way of displaying or gaining power over another.

Brewer had a finger in his face, well within Zero's personal space, he's attempting to trump her by violating her space, and touching her.

Basically Zero's trying to gain dominance. He does this a lot in interviews, especially with people he might feel some apprehension or resistance from.

Zero is all about Zero. Words can lie (especially from Zero) You can't hide his body language.

If someone puts their hands on you and you tell them “do not touch me or I will take it as a physical attack.” If they do it again then you can take measures to defend yourself against what you perceive to be a physical attack.
Obviously, you can’t shoot them unless you believe your life is in danger.

Agreed. He probably spent the entire plane ride fuming about her book.
All the while he is fuming about a book, housing starts are way down, again, and unemployment rose, again.

Right on Brewer, Obama is an embarrassment to the nation, he should be community organizing in the ghetto where he belongs instead of being allowed to continue to destroy our way of life.

The way that the thin skinned Obama confronted her on the tarmac is entirely consistent with the way she says he treated her in the meeting referenced in her book. He is an arrogant, thin skinned, prima donna. America’s King Louis IX - L’etat c’est moi.

I’d like to see the full photo. We have talked on FR about Hussein’s inappropriate body language several times. He likes to lay his hand on others in a familiar, patronizing way.

And even in this cropped image, his disdainful thuggish attitude is on full display.

Do you suppose he is pushing her away from him? She describes him as walking away from her and ignoring her calls for a meeting.
