Obama and Brewer Argue

    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer points at President Barack Obama after he arrived at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2012, in Mesa, Ariz. Brewer greeted Obama and what she got was a book critique. Of her book. The two leaders engaged in an intense conversation at the base of Air Force One’s steps. Both could be seen smiling, but speaking at the same time. Asked moments later what the conversation was about, Brewer, a Republican, said: "He was a little disturbed about my book." Brewer recently published a book, "Scorpions for Breakfast," something of a memoir that describes her years growing up and defends her signing of Arizona’s controversial law cracking down on illegal immigrants, which Obama opposes. Brewer also handed Obama an envelope with a handwritten invitation for Obama to return to Arizona to meet her for lunch and to join her for a visit to the border.  (AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari)

    They’ll have to agree to disagree. When President Obama arrived in Phoenix on Wednesday, he and Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer immediately got into it at the airport. Brewer told reporters that Obama was upset that her book Scorpions for Breakfast wasn’t “cordial” to him. She also said Obama didn’t read the entire book and walked away from her before she finished speaking. At one point, Brewer pointed her finger at the president as they heatedly exchanged words. But all was not lost for Brewer, who said she wasn’t too miffed by the interaction. “I’ll regroup,” she said.
