Brewer On Heated Argument With Obama: "He Was A Little Tense"

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer (R) phoned in to the Mike Broomhead Show to talk about her confrontation with President Obama when he landed in Phoenix earlier today.

Host: Tell us what happened.

Gov. Jan Brewer (R-AZ): Well, I was there to greet him. I was the first in line as he came off the plane. He came down, he said 'Hello Jan.' I told him, 'Mr. President, welcome to Arizona and we kept the sun up for you.' And it was a beautiful day in Arizona. And I said, 'We appreciate you being here and the bottom line is I'd like the opportunity to sit down to talk to him about the great Arizona comeback and the things that we have done here and job growth, etc. etc.

I explained to him how we have turned Arizona around and that we both love our country. I know that he loves our country, I love our country. And he brought up my book. And he was a little tense.

He said that he had read the excerpt and he didn't think that I was very cordial. And I said, 'Well, we agreed on that day to disagree.' And he was somewhat thin-skinned and a little tense, to say the least. And I don't remember -- I was trying to be calm. You know, that picture (Brewer pointing her finger at Obama) is very interesting but I don't remember actually doing that. And he moved on down the line.
