|Jan Brewer, Pres. Obama|
I’m convinced, and probably most of the rest of the country as well, that Arizona’s laughable governor should register in the class of double-digit IQs. This, after her recent finger-pointing incident at President Obama on the Mesa, AZ airport tarmac. It’s like when this state turns Brewer loose on the public there is a guarantee that it will bring on another round of ridicule of a state that is already considered by most of the U.S. as preposterous, at least in its politics.
Yes, unfortunately, the world has seen the coverage of this twit excuse for the head of a state government gone viral in her finger-pointing at Obama that is a huge embarrassment to all. And now this bungling politician has raised the ire of black activist Jesse Jackson who says her confrontation with Obama was racist. Actually, I don’t think Brewer has the brains to pull off a genuine racist incident; rather, it was just a publicity stunt for her stupid book. Other blacks like Al Sharpton and the NAACP have joined in with their own accusations.
|Brewer Obama Oval Office|
Brewer says it all comes down to something she said in her book about their prior meeting in the Oval Office that Obama said was inaccurate. Leaving that meeting Brewer said she was encouraged describing it as a “successful” encounter. But in the book she said: “It was [as] though President Obama thought he could lecture me, and I would learn at his knee. “He thinks he can humor me and then get rid of me.” As CNN’s John King said in the video below, you can’t have it both ways, which was it?
Pool reporter, Politico’s Carrie Budoff Brown said it certainly wasn’t a normal get-together in Mesa. “Aside from the pointing, they appeared to talk over each other and he appeared to walk away from her while they were still talking.” Can you blame the man? Brewer later described Obama as “thin skinned” and “tense,” which he denied. Immediately following the incident the President moved on through the line of dignitaries being greeted very civilly by Phoenix’s Mayor Greg Stanton and Mesa’s Mayor Scott Smith.
Mr. Obama made a comment that it was always good publicity for a Republican if they are in an argument with him. This is based on the degeneration in the relations between the GOP and Obama in the past year. This deterioration continued the minute Barack Obama stepped off the plane in Mesa and came face to face with Arizona’s version of the great Republican buffoon. It couldn’t have been planned better if it had been staged by Hollywood.
Local Phoenix newspaper columnist E.J. Montini called Brewer’s behavior “embarrassingly juvenile” continuing to define respect due the highest office in the land as something that “…does not mean sandbagging a president who is about to provide a tremendous public-relations plug for your state.” He went on to describe Brewer’s feeble-mindedness as third grade, then retracted that as an insult to 3rd graders and downgraded it to kindergarten.
Bob Schieffer, highly respected CBS chief Washington correspondent said: “I’ve watched a lot of presidents over the years but I can never recall a president stepping off Air Force One, which is itself a symbol of the presidency and American democracy, and being subject to such rudeness,” referring to Brewer.
And Modern Magazine’s headline says it all, “The Sorry State of Jan Brewer.” It goes on to call her “Gov. Jan ‘Brew-ha-ha’ Brewer” and laments how she has embarrassed just about anyone who has ever been remotely connected to the Grand Canyon state.
So who is to blame for this sham in the desert? The people of Arizona. Not only did they elect this incompetent crackpot entirely due to her support of the anti-immigration law SB-1070, but in a recent poll these same pathetic individuals said they still liked or sorta liked her and her dull-witted GOP dominated state legislature. Brewer’s job performance came in at 37% excellent/good, 30% fair and 29% poor/very poor. The legislature was 26%, 25% and 30% respectively.
And this post would not be complete without the reaction of the people in Letters to the Editor of the Arizona Republic. Out of nine responses, only two favored Brewer in the finger-pointing incident. The terms used were disgrace, negative impression of state, tasteless show of personal regard, shameful show of self-importance, embarrassment, despicable show by Brewer, and one asked where was that “13 seconds of dumb silence” she displayed in the gubernatorial debates?
Where the hell were these people in the last election and when the above poll was taken?
Jan Brewer will certainly go down as the worst governor Arizona has ever had—
and this state has had some doozies—perhaps the worst governor ever in the United States. But Keith Olbermann, political commentator and writer, takes it even further with his evaluation that Jan Brewer is the “worst person in the world.” You have to see his video here.
