The obligatory “heated exchange between Obama and Jan Brewer” post

posted at 7:44 pm on January 25, 2012 by Allahpundit

But their previous meetings have been so “cordial.”

I guess I’ll get the ball rolling for commenters: Brewer 2012?

“He was a little disturbed about my book, Scorpions for Breakfast. 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.”…

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.”…

He appeared to walk away from her while they were still talking, and she confirmed that by saying she didn’t finish her sentence.

You would think the fact that he’s disliked by every Republican in the universe except, I guess, Jon Huntsman would have inured him to criticism from the right by now, but no. In fact, over at the Standard, Jonathan Last remembers that this isn’t the first angry confrontation he’s had with a GOP governor on the tarmac. He once surprised Bobby Jindal by whining about a letter Jindal had sent to Tom Vilsack regarding food stamps. O was in Louisiana that day for a visit related to the BP oil spill but turns out he was preoccupied with the idea that Jindal’s letter had made him look bad. Go figure.

Here’s a bit about the Obama passage in Brewer’s book that has The One so exercised. Our Barack, “condescending” and “patronizing”? Again, go figure:

“It was though President Obama thought he could lecture me, and I would learn at his knee,” the governor wrote, calling his tone “patronizing.”

“He thinks he can humor me and then get rid of me,” Brewer wrote.

Questioned about the different description, the governor said she did not lie.

“I mean, we weren’t yelling at one another, screaming at one another,” she said.

“But it was a pretty one-sided conversation,” Brewer said. “He was, I believe, condescending. And he was lecturing me about what we were going to do and how we were going to do it.”

It sounds … so unlike him. Darn that Jan Brewer for mischaracterizing him this way. Exit prediction for Florida next week: Brewer write-ins 33, Romney 29, Gingrich 27. Click the image to watch.

Not a big fan of Brewer, but two things are painfully evident:

1) She has more fire in her belly than any candidate the GOP is trotting out in the primaries right now

2) She’s living rent free between two of the largest ears not found on the side of an elephant’s head

* 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).

Flora Duh on January 25, 2012 at 8:01 PM

It seems to me that Barry looks down upon anyone who actuallly works for a living. I mean, Brewer actually has to govern her state, put in a soild 40 hours a week. Anyone who “works” is a rube…because they don’t spend the day thinking like the intellectual types.
