As more information surfaces in regards to the "exchange" between Barack Obama and Governor Jan Brewer on the airport tarmac in Arizona, comes the detail that Brewer felt "threatened".

I felt a little bit threatened, if you will, and the attitutude that he had because I was there to welcome him," Brewer told reporters following the exchange..[said Brewer to reporters afterward].

The terse exchange results from Brewers portrayal of a meeting she had with Obama in the White House - in which she was made to feel inferior.

She also described meeting the president at the White House in 2010 to talk about immigration. "I felt a little bit like I was being lectured to, and I was a little kid in a classroom, if you will, and he was this wise professor and I was this little kid, and this little kid knows what the problem is and I felt minimized to say the least."
