Skip to comments.Jan Brewer Didnít Roll Over In Her Obama Photo-Op
Posted on 01/30/2012 4:31:12 PM PST by Kaslin
The now-famous picture of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer shaking her finger at President Obama is both appropriate and deserved. In America, we don't have rulers entitled to the deference and obsequiousness other countries show to their kings; our elected officials are ordinary citizens whom we are free to criticize.
Obama apparently took offense at the way Gov. Brewer described her meeting with the president in the Oval Office. She said he had been "condescending," "patronizing" and just wanted to lecture her, instead of showing any willingness to hear Arizona's concerns about border problems. He also didn't answer the governor's five letters.
Her description sounds authentic because that's exactly how he treated her when they met on the tarmac as he was campaigning for re-election. The background of this meeting is the insulting way Obama is treating Arizona by suing that state for trying to enforce laws against illegal aliens, withdrawing National Guardsmen from the Mexican border, initiating a civil rights investigation of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the scandal of the "Fast and Furious" gun-sale operation.
Fast and Furious was a secret Obama administration program to sell guns to Mexican gangs, so the Democrats could later make a political case for gun control. It backfired when some of those guns were found at the scene of the murder of a U.S. Border Patrol agent.
The U.S. Supreme Court has affirmed the power of states to take steps to enforce laws against illegal immigration. The Legal Arizona Workers Act of 2007, which requires Arizona employers to use the Internet-based, E-Verify system to confirm that a new employee is lawfully in the U.S. was upheld by the Supreme Court last year.

I hope she seeks higher office.
I have to thank Obama for putting her and her book on the map. Show us what you really think, man.
Right guy (er...manlike-thing).
And Bobby Jindal says the big zero treated him the same way after the BP oil spll. He says Obama didn’t care about the people or the environment, he only cared that the spill made HIM look bad.
Where's the video of it?
0bummer, annoyed by Brewer’s comments in her book that he was condescending and patronizing toward her and lectured her at the White House,is condescending and patronizing toward her and lectures her on the tarmac.
obama did the same thing to Perry on the tarmac in Texas, when Perry wanted to give him a letter requesting help on the border.
As opposed to McCain and Romney, Newt will exploit Zero’s weakness, his political glass jaw.
He cannot handle substantive criticism. Give Newt the nomination and the long delayed vetting of Zero will begin. Newt will immediately grab Zero by his political throat and never stop squeezing.
Was you there? If so then why didn't you take a video to prove it didn't happen.
Where’s the video of it?
I found it on floppingaces.net
Speaking of McCain, he was on Your World with Neil Cavuto this afternoon and Cavuto asked him if Newt would get the nomination, if he would support him and he replied of course he would support him
That is the same crap video you can find all over,(0 comes down the steps, then meets the Gov, Mayors, then the camera is switched to heads over a limo shot and the still photo of the wag comes out).
There is no video anywhere, (altho youtube has tons of removed ones.) that actually capture the supposed finger wag, and Brewer herself didn’t remember doing it until they pulled the still photo up.
It isn’t as if I’m sugesting something new that has never happened before. This is AP we are looking at here, and a pres. that lies like a rug on a palace floor.
The idea that it's disrespectful just because he's president and UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES is ridiculous.
Then there's the disrespect shown by Moochelle towards the Queen.
Brewer and Jindal need to make swing state ads for the GOP nominee with “Obama didn’t/doesn’t care” as the theme.
right behind you!
I’m amazed that the exchanged wasn’t videotaped. A president meeting a controversial governor on the tarmac....and no TV station is taking pictures? REALLY??Y?
I don’t want to be vulgar, but how come the only ones in the Republican party that has any balls are the women (Jan, Sarah, Bachmann, Blackburn, etc.)????
If Jindal had any real balls he’d have told Obama to F off and told everyone to go ahead and drill.
Beck is devoting the opening of his radio program to this today. He is eviscerating Obama.
We’ve seen Obama wag his finger in people’s faces many, many times.”””
How many pics exist that show Barry the Imposter using his middle finger across his face & looking at an opponent when he doing so?
I remember quite a few. Bet someone here at FR has that photo available.
