A few hours after she was bizarrely confronted by Barack Obama on the airport tarmac, Gov. Jan Brewer went on KFYI’s Mike Broomhead Show to give us the details on what happened as the President faced off with the Arizona governor – generating national headlines and derailing his post-State of the Union message.
Brewer said Obama was “uh, a little tense”. She said she tried to show respect but that Obama acted “thin-skinned”, and complained about how she described their earlier meeting, in which Brewer made clear how little time she was given to speak, and how Obama condescendingly lectured her about immigration reform, and did not want to hear about border violence and the costs of illegal aliens to Arizona.
Here is the full audio, well worth a listen:
Interestingly, this was not the first time that Obama acted so petulantly on an airport tarmac. After the BP oil spill, Obama gave Gov. Bobby Jindal a similar treatment, as the Weekly Standard details tonight.
Gov. Brewer, you did us proud today. You showed respect, but when offered none in return, you did not back down. Well done!
