This morning, the media is abuzz over Barack Obama’s tarmac kerfuffle with Gov. Jan Brewer yesterday. Apparently, the One is not amused with something in the governor’s book, Breakfast with Scorpions. From Politico:
“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,” she said, according to a pool report. “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. I’ll regroup.” …
The pool reporter, POLITICO’s Carrie Budoff Brown, said the scene was far from the norm. Aside from the pointing, they appeared to talk over each other and he appeared to walk away from her while they were still talking.
Brewer said the president brought up the book.
Prof. Lott is currently at Yale, but for a time he was at University of Chicago, at the same time that Barack Obama was an adjunct lecturer. He told us that the one thing that impressed him about Obama was “his unwillingness to talk to people he disagreed with.” He goes on to describe two encounters with the former Illinois State Senator, both of which ended with Obama rudely turning his back on Prof. Lott and walking away.
Sound familiar, Governor Brewer?
