Giving the President a piece of her mind?

Good morning, Netizens...


I'm perhaps a little late picking up on this, but I still feel it is a worthwhile venture. Do you remember the picture of President Obama having a brief verbal spat with Arizona Governor Jan Brewer in Phoenix Wednesday? Apparently in a book she wrote called “Scorpions for Breakfast” the governor wrote about a meeting she had with the President back in June 2010. In her book, Governor Brewer refers to Obama's style as as “patronizing and condescending”.


Apparently that characterization went over poorly with President Obama, hence the picture in various media sources of Governor Brewer jabbing her finger at the President. Cartoonist David Horsey did not waste any time delivering on such a rich opportunity and captured what I believe is a good possible characterization of what was said on the tarmac.


The two are at odds over Arizona's new immigration law that requires law enforcement officers to demand identity papers of anyone they suspect is in the country illegally. That, and other sections of the law, are being challenged in the Supreme Court by Obama's Justice Department.


Apparently President Obama took Governor Brewer's tirade in stride and simply walked away. Maybe next time she won't be invited to attend a function involving President Obama. D'ya think?
