Image Control For Barack Obama; Exchange With Arizona Governor Gets Tense

It was damage-control gone wrong – as Barack Obama scolds Arizona Governor Jan Brewer for a second time.

Three months after she published her unflattering description of him, it appears President Obama is still miffed with Gov. Jan Brewer.

The encounter on  the tarmac grew terse with Obama taking Brewer to task for her portrayal of him in her book “Scorpions For Breakfast”.  In the book, Brewer describes a meeting with Obama in which he “lectured her” and was “patronizing” and “condescending” to her.

In her book, Brewer said she sought the meeting to explain to the president “exactly what is taking place down there in Arizona and that we need to have our borders secured.”

That, she wrote, was not the president’s agenda.

“It wasn’t long before I realized I was hearing the president’s stump speech,” she wrote.

The situation took Governor Brewer off-guard, as she was not looking for a heated exchange.

“I stood there, trying to understand exactly what was going on here, because that’s not why I was there,” the governor said Wednesday night.
