Thin-Skinned Man-Child Has Hissyfit in Arizona

Can you imagine what our enemies are thinking when they see this man sniveling like a spoiled child over the slightest bit of criticism in a book few have even read? Honestly, after turning Arizona Jan Brewer into a pinata over the whole SB 1070 situation and making her a target of the angry left, did he really expect her to give him a glowing assessment?

President Barack Obama arrived at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and was greeted by Gov. Jan Brewer, among other dignitaries and local mayors. The two spoke intensely for a few minutes. At one point, she pointed her finger at him. At another, they were talking over each other.

Obama appeared to walk away from Brewer while they were still talking.

“He was a little disturbed about my book, ‘Scorpions for Breakfast,’ ” Brewer told a pool reporter who is a member of the traveling White House press corps shortly after her encounter with Obama. “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.”

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.”

Instead of acting like a man, he turns it into an international story.
Here’s what Brewer dared to say about the whiny baby (via Hot Air).

“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.”

That’s Obama, alright. Lecturing those who dare to disagree with him, then stalking off when anyone dares to offer an opinion that differs with his.

Two words of advice for Obama: Grow up.
