GOP presidential candidate responds to attackers

On Drudge's report page of this incident, the following sentence is made:
"It was clear from the moment they greeted one another that this would not be a run-of-the-mill encounter between the president and a local official."
Get that? The Governor of Arizona is referred to as a "local official." Meaning, local federal official. Meaning, no other acknowledged capacity.
The Founders would have considered that a declaration of war - literally.
BTTT going to watch it now
What I saw on the tarmac is two people being real instead of being politicians. They got into it a bit apparantly. Good. That’s human.
Newt is on the march and Romney is on the slide.
Wow! I just watched this clip online and they cut off the part where Newt says Romney had investiments in Fannie and Freddie and he even used lobbyists for Fannie and Freddie in his attack ad on him!
BO hates governors, have you noticed?
He hates them because they are sovereign over their own states.
Zero HATES the States. The States have to get in his face to get any audience at all, other than Eric H suing them for being STATES.

Hannity asked Newt if he was cleared of all the ethics charges in the past and he said yes. Fox cut that out too!!!
I saw one human being brave, fearless and standing on the side of truth. That of course is Arizon's wonderful Conservative Governor Jan Brewer.
O'Bambi? He's subhuman pond scum in my estimation and there's nothing even remotely "real" about him. The vile homunculus is Satan's servant and an evil Marxist Mooselimb devoted to the destruction of America.
“What I saw on the tarmac is two people being real instead of being politicians. They got into it a bit apparantly. Good. Thats human.”
And APPARENTLY Brewer’s book is dead on the money as he repeated the same behavior she describes in her book on the tarmac.
The was nothing “real” in the sense of being honest on Obama’s part.
He walked away in a huff while she was in mid-sentence.
That’s arrogance, rudeness and denial, not to mention very unprofessional.
And nothing is “good” considering he and his minions are waging a bullying WAR on Brewer, Arpaio and Arizona.
Sorry, but your quaint little “observation” seems a bit touchy feely and strange, to say the least.
You are to be commended for your analysis and choice of words to describe Dear Leader. Thanks!
You're welcome! As a Christian, I tried to be as kind and generous as possible to the _resident. So, regrettably, I did have to mince words somewhat.
Newt mentioned this article in the above interview but they cut that out as well:
Behind a G.O.P. Revolt, Ideology and Politics
Mr. Boehner and other House Republicans were furious at the White House for signing on to the bill, and they pointed to Mr. Paulson as the culprit. For his part, according to lawmakers who had discussions with the Treasury secretary, Mr. Paulson privately complained that the Republicans simply did not grasp the severity of the economic threat posed by the potential for a housing collapse.
What they do grasp is a need to draw some sharp distinctions between themselves and Democrats, and to reassert themselves as ardent foes of wasteful government spending. They are convinced that traveling a wayward fiscal path was the reason for their undoing in 2006.
We learned our lesson after the 2006 election, said a chastened Mr. Boehner. Id be the first to admit that I think some of my colleagues lost their way leading up to the 06 election.
Senior Republican officials acknowledged privately that another factor had also been at work in the Republican tide against the housing bill: the prospect of a leadership fight after the fall elections. Given the chance of losses in November, the current leadership team is not assured another term at the top. And Mr. Boehner, other Republican leaders and potential challengers are doing what they can to demonstrate their conservative bona fides to the rightward-tilting House Republican membership.
I believe rewarding, encouraging and reinforcing risky investments should not be the role of the government and certainly shouldnt be financed by taxpayers, said Representative Roy Blunt of Missouri, the No. 2 Republican, in explaining his stance against the bill.
Former Speaker Newt Gingrich spoke at a private party meeting before the vote and joined Mr. Boehner in encouraging Republicans to oppose the measure, rallying lawmakers who remember that it was Mr. Gingrichs ideas that prevailed in the halcyon days of the Republican revolution.
Nah, I think people mixing it up a bit is healthy. Sorry if I sounded all gushy. That is definately not me. Must have been my rare touchy feely side coming to the surface.
Oh, that’s a great response. I’ll agree with you about Brewer and take it back a notch on your description of Obama but you are not far off. Good one.
The complete clip needs to go viral.
