McCain backs Brewer in tarmac tiff, calls Obama 'prickly'
L.A. Times ^ | Jan. 26, 2012 | Christi Parsons

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."

That's right, Governor Brewer, you gave us an image to cherish. Hussein is out of line as an individual and WAY out of his depth as POTUS.

BHO must go.

Why add an unnecessary “ly” on the description of the Creetin-in-Chief?

Did he really say that 0bama was a little prick? That’s not very respectful.

The elephant in the room that the finger in the face distracts from is where the hell were all the elected Democrats from Arizona to greet the President? Why was a GOP Governor the only Arizona dignitary there to greet the President?

Thats right, Juan. He's prickly.

He's also a lying US hating marxist who is seeking to destroy the America of our founding fathers, too.

But I guess noticing a basic personality quirk is a good start.

This is off the topic of this thread but whoever is doing the graphics in the threads for the “DONATE” postings is doing a very good job. Many of them are context sensitive for the thread itself and are very funny or they are right on the money politically or by their commentary make a great point.

Kudos to whoever is handling that on FR.....

Oh, how terrible, he called obama prickly? How obscene. McCain has called conservatives worse names. He’s tryiing to jump on Brewer bandwagon. McCain needs to get off, she has been doing all the hard work, he’s just in it for the ride.

Making the media rounds after tangling with Obama over her criticisms of him in her recent book on immigration, Brewer described the president as wound-up from the moment she greeted him on the tarmac.

“He brought up my book and he was a little tense,” Brewer said in an interview with KFYI radio. “He said he read the excerpt and didn’t think I was very cordial. I said we’d have to agree to disagree. He was a little thin-skinned and tense, to say the least.”

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.

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.”

He offered $50 per hour. I called all of his offices to get one of those jobs but they told me he never said that.

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?

I understand completely. Who would believe the outrageous sum of $25 per hour for those jobs much less $50? I found an article about some white city boy who decided to see for himself what it was like to pick lettuce in Yuma for a season. The wage was $8.37 per hour.

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.

Yes, and wages in those industries have been frozen or dropped over the last twenty years. It sure shows how disconnected from reality McElitist is though to think that they do get $50 an hour to pick lettuce and that it is too little.

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.)

In College several years ago a Prof that I liked a lot said that to solve a very difficult engineering problem you have to know (or at least suspect) the answer before you start.

Obama is probably not a Jimmy Carter/ John Kerry idiot but a Muslim Manchurian candidate. Ever try to explain how this idiot can spend $Trillions when Carter just spent pocket change comparatively?

Consider Libya. WHY? Easily explained when you see that Libya is headed to Sharia law. Egypt? Muslim Brotherhood (sworn to destroy Israel) will likely be in control of the country. Notice the friction between Obama and Israel? Every (radical) Muslim wants every Israeli Jew dead.

A nut radical Muslim put here to destroy the country explains much about Obama. Do you need to prove it? Hardly but it helps to understand the enemy. And make no mistake, Obama is the enemy.

Does Obama care if he is kept off the ballot in Georgia? Hardly, it presents the opportunity for racism/US Attorney General taking action, Court Cases etc.

And if Obama looses the election? If you think 2000 and George Bush’s Florida was bad, you haven’t seen anything yet. Race riots and martial law would make Obama happy as he watches America burn.

Let's see.

Three days ago Jan Brewer sticks her finger in the Prickly One's chest.

Two days ago Juan McPain sticks his wetted finger in the air.

Today, Juan speaks out.

Yep, sounds about right to me.
