You Can’t Make This Stuff Up: Ariz GOP Gov. Jan Brewer Endorses President Obama [Video]
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has been at odds with President Obama for quite some time, and the tension between them reached a fevered pitch when Gov. Brewer disrespected President Obama, going so far as to wag her finger in his face, during Obama’s visit to Arizona. So although there doesn’t seem to be any love lost between Brewer and Obama, you wouldn’t have known it by the glowing endorsement she gave him during an interview at the RNC convention.
During the interview, Brewer said, “I know that if President Obama is elected in November, and I hope that he is, that he will be able to come together with all of us and come up with a solution. And I believe he will secure our borders and therefore, we can resolve all those issues in a simple manner.”
In short, Republican Gov. Brewer is looking forward to working with President Obama when he is reelected in November. That must come as a shock to Mitt Romney.
The Governor’s office later released a statement to clear things up.
“Governor Brewer misspoke, obviously, and certainly isn’t the first official to have done so amid the noise and chaos of a crowded convention hall or rally. It happens – even to newscasters and TV pros. Regardless, given the Governor’s record of challenging President Obama, it’s a stretch to think anyone would believe she’s supporting his re-election. The Governor stands with Mitt Romney.”
Want to know what’s not a stretch? Understanding the words coming out of Gov. Brewer’s mouth. She clearly endorsed Obama, with absolutely no mention of Romney.
