The Disrespect Continues…

                                     Leatherface to Face

          Arizona Governor Jan Brewer continued the Republican theme of disrespecting the office of the President of the United States.  She was photographed yesterday wagging her tail finger at President Obama on the airport tarmac where she came to “welcome him”.  When questioned about the photo -op incident she said, “I wasn’t angry at all, I felt a little bit threatened* if you will – in the attitude that he had.  He wanted to talk about my book and I thought he was pretty thin skinned.”  Thin skinned.  Thin skinned…

On “Now With Alex Wagner” they discussed the incident.  Apparently Pres.  Obama was not pleased with her misrepresentation of a meeting they once had.  After the meeting, she stated that things went well, but in her book Scorpions for Breakfast (that explains it), she said he “spoke down” to her.  Alex said, “…particularly around President Obama, there’s this feeling of license that I think a lot on the Right feel they have to attack him personally, and to get really up close with their attack.  Whether its Rick Santorum (Google it) not defending the fact that President Obama is a Christian and American born citizen that deserves to legally hold the office of President; whether its Jan Brewer accosting him on the tarmac – I think its something about  Obama that sort of engenders this personal ire.”  Something about Obama… something about Obama?  So close, so close and yet so far away.  Let me help you Alex, he’s BLACK.
