We Need to Do Something to Keep Brewer Away From Obama

Posted By on Fri, Aug 2, 2013 at 4:00 PM



We've been through this before and our governor managed to embarrass herself (and through some variation on the transitive property, the state of Arizona) in the process by wagging her finger and scolding the President of the United States as if she were a out-of-control second grade teacher. However, Jan Brewer is trying to put herself in the position to pull the same stunt again:

Andrew Wilder, Brewer’s spokesman, said the governor is interested in meeting with Obama.

“I can’t tell you about whether or not the governor is going to be welcoming the president,” Wilder said. “I can confirm there’s certainly interest on our end to do so. But we don’t know where he’s coming from and where he’s going.”

Asked what topics the governor would like to discuss with Obama, Wilder responded, “That’s nothing we’re going to discuss at this time. That's all I'm going to say about it.”

Brewer does actually have something to discuss with Obama - the odd delay in declaring the Yarnell Fire a disaster - but can she send a representative? Send a carrier pigeon? Anything that keeps Governor Jan from having a face-to-face with the President again.
