It clearly states she greeted him to give him an invitation to lunch. He decided it would be a good time to pick a fight.

I know people in AZ, even have family there. Fine people. She obviously represents the bottom. One wonders how in the hell she became Governor?

Good for the President to simply walk away from this repulsive bigoted GOP nutcase.

Enjoy President Obama's second term.
I am sure you cheered for the guy who threw his shoe at Bush.....

We play this high and mighty card about how the President should be treated, but let's be honest, when someone with different politics than your view is in office, you don't care.

His 'anti-Arizona illegal legislation position' has been made public by his press secretary and further bolstered by the W/H court challenge.

Is the place to discuss your chagrin at a chapter in a book on the tarmac immediately after touch down while being greeted by the governor of the state?

Knowing your position has been diametricly opposed to the states proposed legislation and further declaring your objection publicly with a supreme court challenge; would the time to discuss a book chapter be the first few seconds of a "Welcome to Az" exchange.

He attempted to control and admonish that lady with obvious body language suggesting he is patronizing her in the extreme! Where I come from you don't assume to touch someone on the arm, especially a lady, unless invited to do so! He resorts to this touchy feely crap as a furtherance of his "I'm a very nice guy; here let me touch you and you'll naturally fall under my spell and behave like a good little house-wife should and be intimidated by my very presence, now about that book of yours where you refer to me in a less than flattering and worshipful manner".

He got what he deserved! He was rude in the extreme for raising the issue of the book and his attempt to admonish her in a very public place at a welcoming ceremony which backfired with her having every right to stick her finger up his nose; THAT'S HIS HAND ON HER ARM PEOPLE!

He thought he could control the conversation BECAUSE she'd be too intimidated by his presence in a public setting to object or respond negatively and he got his hat handed to him. GOOD ON YA' JAN!

That is the correct assessment. Obama is an aloof authoritarian, who isn't used to being question by plebes.

Yes, looking the truth in the face is not something he does well.

She said that she respects the office. Doesn't have to respect the man, as a great many of us don't respect him.

BTW, what did he say to elicit this reaction from her? The action was probably deserved, imo.

Ah, the race card! Wondered how long it would take obamaphiles to bring that one back.

Respect has to be earned. He hasn't earned it.
