Audio: Jan Brewer on l’affaire tarmac

posted at 9:08 pm on January 25, 2012 by Allahpundit

Via the Mike Broomhead Show. You read the breathless pool report, now hear the breathless post-confrontation interview! Serious question: What did he think he was going to accomplish by confronting her this way? Her book is what it is, so he had three options. He could have ignored it because, really, who cares what she says about him ? If you’re reading something by Jan Brewer, odds are you’re already a Republican and you dislike O. Conversely, he could have turned on the charm and played it off as a misunderstanding. “Sorry you thought I wasn’t attentive in our Oval Office meeting; let’s meet again and clear the air.” Worst-case scenario is he wastes half an hour hearing her out, best-case scenario is he gets a Republican governor talking about what a productive meeting they had on border security.

The third option is to do what he apparently did — greet her by whining, which gives her an excuse to dump on him again and to advertise her book, sales of which are now bound to skyrocket. Very odd.

“Sorry you thought I wasn’t attentive in our Oval Office meeting; let’s meet again and clear the air.”

that would’ve been helpful and humble for him to do. No wonder it was in the realm of the impossible. Ah well.

AP, I left this on the other thread, but Obama really does have this petty pattern:

I can’t believe The One would be this petty so I’m guessing it’s simply a matter of protocol… Or, perhaps, he doesn’t give a squat about whatever message Rick Perry might have for him and decided to farm out the task of pretending to care to Valerie Jarrett. We are dealing with a 12-year-old mentality here, my friends.

he’s speaking his native language. He’s also fluent in lying, demagoging, and blameshifting……

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that Obama is trying to shore up his base for the election by bashing … very publicly … with one of the most hated figures on the right.

I mean – this isn’t astro-physics here. There’s an election coming and Obama wants his team pumped up to go and vote for him.

Which is exactly the OPPOSITE tactic the GOP establishment is taking – by doing everything it can possibly do to DEPRESS it’s base while their boy, Mittens RomneyCare courts the votes of Democrats.

Ain’t gonna work.

GOP Establishment “Great Ideas” never work – because they aren’t great ideas … they are really, really stupid ideas.

Notorious GOP on January 25, 2012 at 9:17 PM

He is what he is. He’s a man who has had people tell him how great he is his whole life–why, the University of Chicago told him he was great and deserved tenure even though he never published any sort of legal scholarship normally required to gain such stature. Why is anybody surprised that finally in his late forties–and now early fifties–when he got to a position where not everybody is going to get a thrill up their legs when he speaks, he just can’t handle the criticism?

Wow..I heard on another show today an analysis on Obama’s personality..”when confronted with something he knows nothing about” (AZ border)”he lashes out in a personal way. He has the maturity of a 15 year old “(sorry to any 15yr olds out there)..”he gets defensive when confronted with issues he knows nothing about” (border control)nor cares about. This guy is no leader, only an agitator. Brewer is a dignified fighter for my state and I for one will be buying her book.

Love Brewer for standing up to this destructive president. However, republicans, for some reason have this need to keep saying that they “know Obama loves this country”. Who are they trying to reassure? Themselves? Obama is what he is and denial about it isn’t going to change that. Just look at his past and what he has done since he has been president. None of that exactly screams, “Obama loves this country”. Please spare me the denial.

So the guy who killed Osama, is thin skinned with a female Governor greeting him at the airport, over a line or two in a book. Huh. If this rattles him so easily, shouldn’t Newt or Mitt be able to find some soft under belly during a debate? They could throw him off balance with, How come you got the little chair in the situation room for the Osama operation? Might start him to gritting his teeth and smiling.Then move to, oh I don’t know, Nice economy you have here. Just a thought. Feel free to elaborate and come up with your own scenario’s. Tough guy methinks he ain’t.

The narcissist:

* Requires excessive admiration, adulation, attention and affirmation; or, failing that, wishes to be feared and to be notorious (Narcissistic Supply);

* Feels entitled. Demands automatic and full compliance with his or her unreasonable expectations for special and favourable priority treatment;

* Behaves as an eternal adolescent (e.g., his choice of language, youthful image he projects, demands indulgence and feels entitled to special treatment, even though his objective accomplishments do not justify it).
