Go Jan!  It is time that this President, who holds an office that we all respect, show the people, and Governor of our great state some respect.  When he stops all of the disrespectful litigation by “HIS GOVERNMENT” against the people of Arizona, and starts cooperating with the investigation of “HIS GOVERNMENTS”  gun running in our state we might even be able to show some respect for him. 
To get respect, Sir, you must have some respect, especially for your employers!

I guess Barry isnt used to anyone calling him out. This Prez has been given a free pass for so long it must have been a shock to see a Governor that doesnt agree with his policies. It would seem that he thinks Arizona is just a stupid renegade outpost that shouldnt dare do the job he thinks is reserved for the Feds. even though he wont do that job (illegal immigration). Congrats to Jan Brewer and everyone else in Arizona that refuses to let the Federal Government try to trample on states right to defend its citizens and stop the costly deadly invaders.

For those of us who haven’t read either the book or “the excerpt”, it would be good to have additional context in this piece.

I bought a Kindle copy of “Scorpions for Breakfast” this afternoon after the story broke and have been reading it.  The President should read it! All of it!  And then he should be very very ashamed of himself and “HIS GOVERNMENT”
