Reporting from Las Vegas President Obama is spending the day in Las Vegas and Colorado trying to sell his vision for America's energy future, but he's going to have to work to overshadow the buzz around his personal clash with the Arizona governor the day before.
On Thursday, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) came to the defense of Gov. Jan. Brewer in a conversation with Fox Business Network, where he suggested that President Obama can be a little abrasive.
"Apparently Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana, had a similar exchange with the president," McCain said Thursday morning. "It is very well-known he has a prickly personality and I think it has been displayed in both of those cases."

He walked away when she was mid-sentence talking to him.....
Hey John, you should have left off the “ly”.
McCain got the pc police on his butt not long ago when he asserted that Arizona wildfires were being set by illegals. That’s quite different from the McCain of old who offered lettuce-picking jobs at $25/hr. to prove gringos wouldn’t do the job.
McCane said “Prickley”.....how about just Prick
He’s not blind and why insult squirrels?
The simple answer is: It takes a prick to know a prick.
Probably because they don't want to be anywhere NEAR him as THEY run for reelection themselves...if they think he's toxic and a drag on the ticket.
Someone pointed out the other night on the "Shut Off Television Unit" speech on Twitter, "All these democrats lined up to shake POTUS's hand, who won't want to be within 5 miles of him on the campaign trail."
That’s might nice of McCain. He sat there nodding and grinning ear-to-ear at the SOTU when 0bama was talking about “comprehensive immigration reform.”

Too fast. I’m impressed.
I thought we had nothing to fear in an Obama presidency, Senator.
YOU apparently don't get it either.
Obama is a MUSLIM who hates America and who has adopted the left's agenda. Both want to change America but OBAMA wants to destroy it.
Ask yourself the question, if Obama was a TROJAN HORSE MUSLIM CANDIDATE, what would he do different than he is doing now? The answer is NOTHING, Obama is doing what any Muslim terrorist would do and Americans, both left and right, are too brainwashed to even consider it much less believe it.
Like the 9/11 terrorist, Obama has state backing. He didn't think this up, he is just a reality show host playing POTUS. Apparently by the time America figures out that Obama really has a RADICAL MUSLIM AGENDA, Muslim terrorism will be at a mall near your house.
Ask yourself the questions: Does the media tell lies? Does the US Government lie to you?
Perhaps he is muslim, but I'm restricting myself to charges I can prove in court.
Thanks, TE. I thought maybe it was $50, but knew “someone” would correct me if wrong. *Wink*
River Styx freezes over...
I recall another story at the time said they have trouble filling those jobs with "migrants" because they make better money in construction, hotels and restaurants. McLiar is playing on the popular misconception that most migrant workers, illegal or legal, work in ag jobs when in fact only about 2-3% of migrants work in the ag industry.
Facts? We don' need no steenkin' facts!! Hah. At their entitlement rallies they like to wave signs, "We feed America." Busted.
They are moving up, no question about it.
I wonder what McBonehead thinks a carpenter makes? $200 an hour? I've got news for him. I was making $15 an hour ON THE BOOKS in 1990. It is hard to get more than $10 an hour now. SPECIFICALLY because the town was flooded with illegals in the late '90s.
(It has always been significantly lower than the average here because it's a tourist town. I include that caveat because some might think $15 was pathetic for 1990 even. It was but everyone accepts that you make less here in exchange for living in a great place.)
Would have been nice, if McCain were to have spoken up four years ago.
McCain, YOU PUT HIM THERE.
