Can a Governor points finger at the President?  Really? Well, that’s exactly what happened when Arizona Governor Jan Brewer met President Barack Obama at the airport.  She welcomed him, and then the two exchanged heated conversation.  At one point, the Governor pointed her finger at the President.  And that, I think, is a surreal moment in politics. However, President Obama downplayed the unfortunate […]
