Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer and President Barack Obama engaged in an apparently tense exchange on an airport tarmac shortly after Air Force One touched down outside Phoenix on Wednesday.
I know that it's fashionable for Republicans to be angry these days, but most Americans don't appreciate this type of behavior.

Obama just turned and walked away during a conversation?

One would think he'd get upset over the state's immigration law his administration is going to court over...or the investigation opened by the state into obama's Fast&Furious gunrunning program....but no...he was upset because of how she portrayed him in her book.

Yes, the narcissist has a big problem with being challenged.

Great pic...he deserves so much more than this though;

He could only stand to look at her for so long.

I'd prefer my President to act like an adult, personally. If she confronted him she is out of line as well.

That's very disrespectful of her. It shows her true character & it would have been appropriate for the Secret Service Officer to grab her finger & hand it to her.

Greeting him at the airport and handing him an invitation to lunch and for a border tour is disrespectful?

Did you even read the article?

Not at all shocked that he is unhappy about a portrayal in a book he knows how powerful words in print are. Ask him why he took all the credit for Altgeld asbestos project that he helped with and never finished. But he praises himself in one of his books and does not give the proper credit to the real people behind the project.

Did you read the article? He's dressing her down for being upset at how she made him appear in her book and she's supposed to just stand there and take it like a good little girl??

I am more increasingly convinced that Obama is a narcissist.

Shaking her finger and shouting angrily to the President's face would be considered disrespectful by most people.
