JUST DESERTS FOR OBAMA: Why AZ’s Gov Had Every Right to Scold the Prez (Guest in CST)
By now, everyone who pays even peripheral attention to current events has seen the photo (shown) that so clearly captures the tension between the personalities of President Barack Obama and Arizona Governor Jan Brewer.
Since it became public, much of the debate surrounding it centers on whether or not Brewer’s pointing at and, apparently, scolding Obama was a sign of disrespect towards the Office of the White House.
But, in her latest editorial on her organization’s website (see the link below), Phyllis Schlafly, the National Chairman of the Republican National Coalition for Life and founder of the pro-family Eagle Forum, would like to remind us all that the United States doesn’t have a king.
And, even if it did, this king deserves whatever lashing he got from Brewer, considering how he has not only turned his back on a state full of U.S. citizens, but his administration, behind its own Sheriff of Nottingham in Attorney General Eric Holder, is actively working against those citizens in their efforts to protect themselves.
From the scandalous Operation Fast & Furious, to Holder’s lawsuit blocking Arizona’s S.B. 1070, to the withdrawal of National Guard troops from the Mexican border, to the civil rights investigation of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, to a laundry list of backdoor amnesty tricks, Schlafly can explain why Brewer has every right to stand her ground in this photo.
Get Schlafly’s full op-ed at the link below. Then, call Special Guests to arrange an interview to discuss this topic further. While crystallized in this one singular photo, it is a story that is far from over.
