The least that any governor owes any president is respect.
It’s more than that. The least any PERSON owes any other person is respect.
Imagine what Republicans would have said if what occured at the Mesa airport between Gov. Jan Brewer and President Barack Obama had taken place between Gov. Janet Napolitano and President George W. Bush. 
Can you imagine the explosions of rhetoric from our U.S. Senators and our Republicans in the House if there was a photograph of Napolitano wagging a finger at Bush?
The condemnation would have been overwhelming.
And justified.
The governor wasn’t at the airport greeting the president on behalf of herself. She was there representing ALL of us. Right, left and middle. Young and old. Men and women.
A simple “Welcome to Arizona, let me know if there’s anything we can do for you,” would have sufficed.
A lecture, an argument, a confrontation of any kind shows disrespect for the office. Not just for the person who holds it.
The governor should be embarrassed. 
We all might have different views on politics. But we know good manners, and bad ones, when we see them.
Arizona Republic columnist EJ MONTINI, regarding governor Jan Brewer’s disgraceful, impolitic behavior to the President yesterday.

Yep.
Gottdambit THIS. 
I’m happy this newspaper is taking their governor to task.
She owes not just President Obama a personal apology,  but she owes the White House an apology and the People of Arizona one as well, for embarrassing them like that.

If I may? 
This is a prime example of white female privilege melded with age, namely some white women in their middle years and older who think they are entitled to speak to just about any grown person of color who is younger than they are as if the PoC is the help or, if those white women are feeling more magnanimous, their ward—regardless of the position the PoC holds…or the white woman holds, for that matter.
What Jan Brewer is exhibiting absolutely lacks hometraining…and is par of her continuing course of confusing her “racist duty” with her actual job duty. 
ETA: Oh, now she’s claiming that the POTUS “threatened” her as an explanation for her action in this photo. In other words, she’s getting all into her “white lady tears” to derail from the fact that she’s acting disrespectfully in this picture. 
And I’m getting all into my eyeroll at this.
