Skip to comments.Jan Brewer Just Trying to 'Score Some Points With Obama-Haters in Arizona'
Posted on 01/27/2012 2:31:53 PM PST by NCjim
By daring to stand up for herself in recent exchange with President Obama, the media quickly labeled Arizona Governor Jan Brewer a villain. On Thursday's NBC Nightly News, anchor Brian Williams was aghast: "Who have you ever seen talking to the president like this?....The governor of Arizona with her finger in the face of the President of the United States. You don't see that often or maybe ever."
In the report that followed, White House correspondent Kristen Welker piled on with nasty sound bites attacking Brewer. A clip of left-wing MSNBC host Martin Bashir echoing Williams: "Is that really how we're supposed to behave towards the President of the United States?" Followed by NBC News presidential historian Michael Beschloss proclaiming: "She may feel this will score some points with Obama-haters in Arizona, but nationally, this is unusual enough that I'm not sure it's going to help her."
Sound bites were also included from Brewer herself explaining: "I welcomed him and thanked him for being here....He immediately took umbrage, if you will, with my book that I wrote, "Scorpions for Breakfast," and was somewhat disgruntled..."
Welker countered Brewer with White House statements: "Today the White House described the incident as 'overblown,' but said, 'The president did note that after their last meeting, a cordial discussion in the Oval Office, the Governor inaccurately described the meeting.'"
Concluding her report, Welker added: "President Obama weighed in during an interview with ABC News, saying the whole thing was really not a big deal. He also said, and this is a direct quote, Brian, 'I think it's always good publicity for a Republican if they're in an argument with me.'"
Thursday's CBS Evening News was even worse in its coverage of the incident, as Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer denounced "such public rudeness" by Brewer.
brian williams is a wanker like most of the alphabet media.
You mean besides Hugo Chavez?
When have you ever seen a president who chews out or otherwise disrespects state governors the minute he greets them on the tarmac?
Why, yes it is Martay, when the President of the United States is a purple-lipped Marxist punk, that is exactly how we're supposed to behave.

Meanwhile, her book soars to the top of Amazon rankings. She can laugh all the way to the bank.
Odumbo will probably demand half of the royalties.
Welker countered Brewer with White House statements: "Today the White House described the incident as 'overblown,' but said, 'The president did note that after their last meeting, a cordial discussion in the Oval Office, the Governor inaccurately described the meeting.'". . . so we have a pure "he said, she said" case.
And your assumption as to which one told the truth may say more about you than it does about him or her.
He’s suing her state. He’s lucky she used her index finger to point at him.
She should have spit in B.O’s evil face...or pocked his eye out with that finger..Most of us despise the Evil Muslim...
t Martin Bashir echoing Williams: “Is that really how we’re supposed to behave towards the President of the United States?”
When that President is an assclown working hard to destroy America? YEAH! No make that HELL YEAH!
No less than 80% of rat callers attribute strongman, authoritarian powers to Zero.
Make no mistake. A not insignificant percentage of Americans would happily send every Freeper off to a labor camp.
"I bow before you Dear Leader....tell me what to tell the masses, oh Dear Leader".
Even with the usual suspects shilling for Hussein, I think that Jan Brewer is going to come out ahead on this one.
Pfffft...they'd rather just kill us.
Yeah, Brian. Like a Supreme Court Justice hugging the Chief Executive. I don't remember any comment about that.
Hope someone photoshops the picture to make Obama appear higher up over Brian.
Read the letter she gave him—It was a welcoming letter. This was Obama fault—not hers.
I’m an Obama hater but I’m in California. Can I join?
It appealed to me.
Since he set the DoJ on the State (and on the Sheriff of the largest county - almost 60% of the state population) for a voter passed bill, I think she has a right to be upset...:^)
Heck, I want her to be upset!
The poodle propaganda press is very afraid, and that’s good.
“Make no mistake. A not insignificant percentage of Americans would happily send every Freeper off to a labor camp.”
Let’s not give that much power to a bunch of scrawny, bed-wetting morons in college calling C-Span in the morning.
They are not significant in numbers nor are they capable of hauling anything except a load of empty beer cans to the dumpster. And that won’t get done until the landlord yells at them.
Governor Brewer is pi**ing off all the right people. Gotta love it.
Mark for later.
I strongly suspect this to be a setup by the Narcissist in Chief and his handlers to use the press to set false perceptions. Lest we forget, perception is reality. He walks off the plane, smiles and puts his hand on her arm and whispers his bitter, thin skinned sentiments about her book which the handlers predict, her being a fighter, she will not be expecting and react to, even if politely. She does always talk with her hands, and they must have had such fun quietly informing the photographers right where to stand and then just waiting for the pictures to hit the wires. The talking heads then starts their job painting the picture for the majority of mind numbed viewers that Repubs can only fight with the Won. By the end of the week the perception seeps into the public consciousness, and they think themselves brilliant and handout Pulitzer prizes to each other, while Obammy appears the victim. Just the manner in which he walked off from her while she was still talking illustrates the desired deception to make it appear she was the aggressor in their little chat.
They are using game show tactics to sway the voting public. They are going to ‘produce’ the whole election like a reality show complete with zinger soundtracks and, as with a show script, they think they already know who the winners and losers are. Why shouldn’t they think so since 2008 proved it to be so? Obozo is just playing his part in their continuing demented TV game. We all know the plot.
The future of this country NOT a game, and is in serious peril. The slime media must be made irrelevant in politics, somehow. Their lies are seriously hurting this great country, because so many Americans see absolutely no source of any truth in their average day.
Jan did score points with this AZ voter. She’s a fighter for the team. I think she did have some understanding how this might be played and got right out in front of it on FNC with her side of the story. If she hadn’t, this would have likely been far worse.
