Jan Brewer's Blowup On Barack Obama: Political Theatrics, Or Jan Bein' Jan?

Jan Brewer's finger: complete lack of respect for the office of the United States president, or a great photo-op for a far-right-wing-nut politician?

Anyone with any respect for what the office of the president of the United States represents should take one look at the above photo of Governor Jan Brewer sticking her finger in the face of this country's commander in chief and say "who the f**k do you think you are, lady?"

Sadly, there are undoubtedly those who look at Brewer's finger to Obama's face as just another way that Governor Glug-Glug's stickin' it to the federal government -- something she so often brags about.

It could be argued that the governor simply lacks poise -- a position we absolutely will not argue.

However, pissin' off the feds is Jan's "thing" -- ever since she realized it translated into votes here in the "Colt Single-Action Revolver State."

Some say Brewer's dumb -- again, a position we won't argue -- but stickin' her finger in the face of one of the most unpopular (amongst the far-right-wing-nuts) presidents in U.S. history might just be one of the (politically) smartest things she's ever done. Sans signing (after extensive public polling, of course) SB 1070, Arizona's controversial immigration law.

Not to over-estimate Brewer's cranial capacity, but we wonder if perhaps she even planned it?

You see, the above picture of Jan is now a campaign photo -- a rallying cry for those who disagree with the president, and are looking for a politician willing to take him on, regardless of how dopey she may be.

In other words, shaking her finger in the face of the most powerful man on earth might be as smart politically as signing SB 1070 -- for a wannabe far-right-winger, that is.

We want to know what you think: is Brewer's finger to Obama's face just Jan bein' Jan, or a piece of political theater, designed to add to the myth that Jan is a state's rights crusader?

Obama does not get my respect because he is killing America and cares nothing for the American People.  He gives to aliens, stands up for people from other companies and apoligizes for Americans. NNOOOOOOOOOOOOO....... He needs to go back to Africa as far as I am concerned  he is not an American and no matter if he is the president he is nd still a man a killing America and what she stands for.  I hope the Catholic's get him good. Put prayer back in our schools, let parents be parents, stop standing up for other countries over America.

There should be a whole lot more people sticking their fingers in the face of this trying to be President Obama.  He will get respect when he deserves it and so far that hasn't happened.  He is the embarrassment to this country

I have faith that most people in Arizona are decent, but the leaders in your state are certainly a bunch on fuck ups. People of Arizona, think before you vote next time. Two words: Jan Brewer. Head fuck up.....

Funny I've heard several  comments on the issue  of her finger pointing. First comment by Jan Brewer our govenor was that  she felt threated  by the president even though the secret service was there.  That's why she was shaking her finger.  She must have been really afraid.  Now her and her cronies have changed their story that she just talks with her hands.  Which story are we to believe?  What other lie are they going to spin next.  Jan is an embarassment to the people of Arizona.  She needs to be recalled, and God forgive never to be elected again. How many more lies can she tell. Why can't she tell anyone about her rapist son? What a phony.

I don't care for Obama, I would not even want to meet him if I had the opportunity.  But if I did meet him, I certainly wouldn't wag my finger in his face.  That lady is one crazy biznitch.

I work hard and have been blessed to be able to spend thousands of my
hard-earned dollars for travel and I have seen 1/2 the states...I even
did a fly-over tour of the Grand Canyon and loved it!   But I will not
spend 1 red cent in Arizona so long as that woman with a rapist son is
governor there.  This state refused to accept ML King day as a holiday
for over a decade... treats our US born Mexican-Americans who are America citizens and brothers and
sisters in Christ to us like the Mexican-Americans are pariahs (demanding to see birth certificate from them without asking their white counterparts for the same in police stops)... and now that
insane Governor won't even let the President of the United States get of
the plane in peace?!?!  Now, I see reports that it is considered one of
the rudest cities in America.  I will take my travel dollars elsewhere!!!

This isn't verbatim but what's with Brewer saying the encounter with President Obama left her "breathless"? As a professional woman, that's not the way I would ordinarily describe a meeting with a male superior or associate - I wouldn't want to come across like some giddy, star-struck teen. Also, is it typical protocol for governors to communicate with the President through handwritten letters they deem "personal"? Curiouser and curiouser....

This bitch is clearly being disrespectful to President Obama. Folks, this is not the first run in she has had with the president. She has made degrading reference in the passt to the president in her book. I guess she is simply mad with the world whenever she looks in the mirror at her prune face. That's what hate and anger does to your face over time, bitch. My advice to you is, change your racist attitude, and pay a visit to Joan Rivers' plastic surgeon.....

Could "Governor" Brewer's finger pointing be caused by post-menopause.  After all she is an uncouth person both in personality and in person.

Brewer claimed Obama was abrasive, rude, and thin-skinned ... all video and eye-witness evidence to the contrary.  Methinks she is projecting.

Then she claimed that she felt "threatened" by Obama.  Seriously?
White female governor feels threatened by tall, uppity black POTUS. News at 11.

Brewer is just trying to rationalize her irrational, disrespectful behavior to save face. Her core supporters will no doubt be aroused by her stunt, but the vast majority of her constituents are most likely ashamed of their governor right now.

Tmorgan

So, today Jan Brewer says that she felt threatened by our President.  Really! why? cause he is black?  Or because she is promoting her new books called scorpion for breakfast? or maybe she has turned into a media HO!

She is suppose to represent Me and You! clearly she's making a fool of herself.

I agrree that we should attend a rally or visit her office and point our finger at her.  Opps what happened to that post.

I cannot stand her.  I did not know her son was a rapist and kidnapper.  That makes it even worse. The Tea Nazi Party must love her.  She fits right in. Why is her son collecting social security. Thought the Tea Party, and GOP want to get rid of social security.  She has her nerve to point the finger at our president. TRAILER TRASH.  Oh but Trent Franks thinks she the most loving and kind person in the world. HE IS MY REP.  I gotta get out of AZ.

No, it is the truth, I agree he would never have been treated that way by her, and others, if he were white.  I have worked for civil rights, human rights and was a pioneer 
in my community for women's rights in the 70s. I am white, married to a white man I   have black and brown friends, plus two wonderful black people in my family.  There is no way President Obama would be treated the way he has been at times, if not for his race and his wife's race.

Brewer comes across like she has a big chip on her shoulder and something to prove, probably because she knows she's uneducated and wholly unfit for her position. She needs to get some couth and some class......yesterday. President Obama was right to walk away from her - actually he seems quite patient under the circumstances, but then he's classy and even-keeled so I'd expect no less.

The governor is nothing but an offline troll, looking to gin up controversy to generate attention and booksales. Pathetic.

Actually, this picture doesn't appear particularly unfriendly to me. She seems to be sort of smiling, and his right hand looks to be on her waist. A tempest in a teapot, or what?

Why do Republicans express total shock when a Democrat shows a GOP President this kind of disrespect, but seem to see showing that same kind of disrespect to a Democratic President  a badge of honor? Of course, this is from the same party that keeps nominating felons like Sheriff Arpaio to office. What a bunch of complete hypocrites who think that they, and not Native Americans were here first and are the only "real" Americans. Many of them wouldn't know a real American if they got bit by one - real Americans believe in freedom and also in respect for the OFFICE of the President, whether you agree with the President or not. All Governor Brewer did was embarrass herself, her state, her party and damage her future with most voters, who are not rabid idealouges who eat scorpions for breakfast and their dignity for lunch.

I don't think Jan actually plannned it--too stupid to think of it.  But you can bet her staff planned it, and she thought it was a great idea.
