Barack Obama Was In Phoenix Today -- And Jan Brewer Just Had to Make a Scene

Arizona said goodbye to the wrong elected official today.
Leave it to Jan Brewer to humiliate Arizona -- yet again...

President Barack Obama was in town today to tour an Intel factory getting built in Chandler -- and it took Brewer all of five seconds to make a goddamned scene.

A scene that has now gone viral -- which was likely what Governor Glug-Glug had in mind when she found out Obama was coming to town.

At one point, Jan stuck her finger in the president's face.

When the president got off of Air Force One, he was met by Brewer, who had a letter inviting him to tour the border.

Jan gives Politico the following account of the conversation that followed:

"He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast," Brewer said. "I said to him that I have all the respect in the world for the office of the president. The book is what the book is. I asked him if he read the book. He said he read the excerpt. So."

Asked what aspect of the book disturbed him, Brewer said: "That he didn't feel that I had treated him cordially. I said I was sorry he felt that way but I didn't get my sentence finished. Anyway, we're glad he's here. I'll regroup."

On the letter, she said it was personal letter asking him to sit down with her to discuss the "Arizona comeback."

She said she "reiterated an invitation that I've extended to him before with regards to coming to arizona and going to the border with me."

She said she would take him to lunch. "We've had a remarkable comeback here and I want to share that with him."

She said the president brought up the book. "I thought we probably would've talked about the things that were important to him and important to me, helping one another. Our country is upside down. Arizona was upside down. But we have turned it around. I know again that he loves this country and I love this country."

Jan was referring to her recently released/ghost-written memoirs: Profiles in Cowardice Scorpions for Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America's Border."

See our critique of Jan's book here.

Obviously, Obama seeing what really goes down at the U.S./Mexico border is important -- particularly after his pimping of comprehensive immigration reform during last night's State of the Union Address.

That said, perhaps someone other than Brewer -- who apparently can't play nice with the nation's commander in chief, despite her claim to have "all the respect in the world for the office of the president" -- should extend a more cordial, bipartisan invitation to the president, rather than sticking their finger in his face (Jeff Flake, we're looking in your direction).

If the rumors I've been reading on AZ blogs are true, he probably got a whiff of her booze breath.

The only thing to do when a drunk harangues you and waggles their finger in your face is to just walk away.  In President Obama's case, he knew the Secret Service was at his back, and that Brewer had already been electronically frisked, surreptitiously or overtly.

That would lead to a lot more questions from right wing nut jobs like the one I saw on another blog:  "Can the president be arrested for assault and battery?"

Yeah, that one RWNJ asked that question knowing the President only touched Jan Brewer when he shook her hand in greeting, before she handed him the envelope he's holding as she waggled her finger at him.

Hey Patridiot,

 

The border is protectednow more than it ever has been since we became a nation, and it was managedunder His watch and it is federal money being used to enforce it, just like itshould be! 

 

Governor Pale-Ale wasusing this meeting to grand stand an issue that is already beingaddressed and she  wants to take creditfor a recovery in AZ that is non existent!  Hell, she is takingcredit for Intel building a new Fab and bringing new jobs to AZ, when that decision was made by Intelprior to her ever being elected!

 

So do what you do bestProp up your feet, Pop open your beer and Bitch just to hear yourself Bitch!!!

I'd like to see her lose a day's pay for not fulfilling her job which was to greet and welcome the President to Arizona on behalf of the Citizens of Arizona.

As a citizen of Arizona, my Governor is an embarassment.

It is the legal duty and moral obligation of the federal government to secure and control our southern border and to stop what has been an invasion into our country of illegal aliens for the past 30 years. Sadly the the government has failed miserably in this duty for cheap votes and some business desire for cheap labor. I applaud Arizona as well as other states to do what is necessary to address what has become a terrible problem for our country. I can see widespread voting fraud becoming a problem since Obama's justice department has little interest in dealing with any allegations.

Try wagging your finger in the face of any US President and see how fast you are on the ground with your hands behind your back and secret serviceman's knee between your shoulder blades.  The fact is this Governor disrespected the office of the President, regardless of her (or your) beliefs about the office holder.  She looks like a simpleton and disrespectful brat (really a much worse descriptor fits).  I wonder if she is intelligent enough to know she looks that way and is really just playing to her audience?  Either way, this is high disrespect that is intolerable for any reason.

There are 50 governors.  He's already spent half an hour in the Oval Office with this one.  If he did that for every governor, it would take the better part of a week.  He wasn't elected to listen to whiners.  Or was she asking for another five minutes, just to apologize?

Precisely, Dahoss.  Or how about this:  The Intel facility, which created 5,000 permanent jobs, not to mention the thousands of temporary construction jobs here in Arizona because of ARIZONA POLICIES that are friendly to manufacturing - NOT ANYTHING OBAMA champions.  Ask Intel why they didn't build in California - or Illinois - or New York - or Michigan - or Massachusettes.  Fact of the matter is, jobs are created when states provide a "business friendly atmosphere" to companies.  Same thing happened when Cuomo gave a $16M tax incentive to Chobani, as reported on the news this morning.  Cut taxes = jobs created.

Do you REALLY think ANYONE will take you seriously if you start your reply with a slur?  My nickname is Patriot, and that is what I reply to.

If you want to talk with us adults, then perhaps you should try to use the proper names of people, learn words like "Grandstand," and spell out your entire sentences.

Have a good evening.

JMAZ, 

Those jobs you are speaking of  were created decades before JAN and OBAMA entered office!!!  Intel came to this state because of its tax policies that were created 1991 and 2005. Former Intel CEO Barrett "said if Intel were starting anew, Arizona likely wouldn't be in the running forits business. Ihate to say it, but I think Arizona would not be in the top 10 locales to makethat investment". 

 Barrett was also concerned that the AZ Senate and House  passed a budget with deeper cuts - $235 million to universities and$242 million to K-12. . "Quality educationis extremely important to a place like Intel," Barrett said. "(The)education cutbacks don't bode well for that."  Headded that "the company might not even select the U.S. because ofnon-competitive immigration and tax policies. Intel has invested at least $14billion in new Arizona plants over the past decade and plans to spend another$5 billion on a fabrication plant in Chandler". 

So the policy's like taxes and immigration that Jan brags about are the one that will be her down fall!

And this was decency? Perhaps for a nimrod such as yourself. Your standards of decency are considerable lower than low. Brewer's idea of decency is to not spill much of her drink on people's shoes. What do you bet she had a belt or two before she showed up for her tea bagger photo op? Ah, liquid courage...do you think her elocution improves as her blood alcohol level rises?
