Obama told ABC News that the "encounter" between him and Jan Brewer on the tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona has been "blown out of proportion." Nevertheless, imaginations are still soaring over the exchange two day ago primarily because of this photo.
I think the only thing out of proportion is Obama's inestimably-voluminous, patriarchal, paper-thin ego.
Governor Jan Brewer just released the letter that she handed Teh Won on the tarmac:
Transcript of Jan Brewer's letter:
Dear Mr. President,
Welcome to Arizona! You've arrived in a state at the forefront of America's recovery -- and her future. We were at the brink. We were at the bottom of the list in job creation. Today, we have a balanced budget and we're in the top 10 for job creation. I'm proud of that hard-won recovery -- the result of many tough decisions, courage and perseverance. My hope is while you are here you will have a chance to see our tremendous results first hand. We both love the great country, but we fundamentally disagree on how to best make America grow and prosper once again. I'd love an opportunity to share with you how we've been able to turn Arizona around with hard choices that turned out to be the right ones. And, of course, my offer to visit the border -- and buy lunch -- still stands!
Did you know that sales for Governor Jan Brewer's book, "Scorpions for Breakfast" have skyrocketed on Amazon.com from a paltry 311,472 to numero 14?
At least someone is making a little money from Obama's free-market-destroying, multidunously-flapping anti-capitalist lips.
