“Unacceptable!”: Obama Breaks Promise To Jan Brewer

Greta Van Susteren spoke with AZ Governor, Jan Brewer, last night by phone, after having interviewed her in person, the day before in Arizona.  Brewer expressed her great disappointment in Obama for his failure to keep his promise of getting back to her after their meeting at the White House two weeks ago. He was supposed to let her know what he decided on sending National Guard troops to AZ to protect the border. The two weeks were up, yesterday, revealing yet another empty promise from Obama:

VAN SUSTEREN: Governor, you can’t see the picture on your screen, but we just looked at a picture of you and President Obama two weeks ago in the Oval Office, when he — when you were here, and I think the — at least the observation I have is he was sort of pressured into seeing you because you were in town and you’d been asking to see him.

But he made some promises about some deployment of National Guard, and you were going to hear within two weeks what the federal government — what President Obama had decided. We asked you last night when we were Arizona. You still hadn’t heard, but you said today was the last day for the two- week period. Have you heard anything today?

BREWER: We have not. And you know, I was so hopeful. I really was hopeful that today that during early hours that we would hear from the Obama administration. But unfortunately, now it is night and we have not heard a word in regards to what they’re going to deploy or how many troops we’re going to get. And I am really disappointed.

What can I say? You know, you make a commitment — you know, people there with us, we all heard the same thing, two weeks. And so that was our drop-dead date. So I’ll be anxious to just hear what we hear in the next couple of days. I’m hopeful that we can reach out to him tomorrow in some manner and get some answers to this. This is unacceptable! Unacceptable!

VAN SUSTEREN: Well, he promised two weeks, and he didn’t get it, so what was that, just a photo-op of the two of you in the Oval Office? I mean, what do you make of that?

BREWER: Well, you know what I make of it? I think that the people of Arizona and the people of America put a lot of pressure on this issue and that they responded to kind of cool it down. And I think they thought maybe they could go away and placate us. Unfortunately, they didn’t. I think by the actions that we’ve experienced now today and with no comments from the White House back to my office in regards to their promise, and then the action that took place down in Ecuador with Secretary Clinton, you know, it’s just going to make people that much more outraged at the administration.

I’ve said this before, but I’ll say it again – Obama just says what he he feels he needs to say in order to get through the day. It doesn’t necessarily have to have any basis in reality.

Case in point.


Confirmed:WH will sue the state of Az for SB1070.

Captain Ed:

Wow … just wow.  What a tremendously incompetent manner in which to announce the decision.  The Obama administration informed the Ecuadorian people of this decision before the White House informed Americans.

  4. This President and his entire Administration seem perfectly willing to sacrifice American lives and endanger Americans and friends of America all over the world simply because they’re naive idealogues that aren’t qualified to run a gas station on a dead end street. I’m 54 years old and I’ve never seen anything like this and that includes Carter. Look around. Americans are scared, unhappy, and are sniping at each other. Nice job Mr. President! You’ve certainly proved you’re a uniter and not a divider. Anything that screws Americans or the United States in general seems to be OK with you. Jimmy Carter was just a plain idealogical idiot that tried stupid things. You’re an evil bastard that knows what you’re doing. You’re definitely not a real leader for sure, that’s beyond debate but what frustrates most Americans is that we have to wake up to some new assault on us, our pocketbooks, our Constitution and liberties every day. More taxes, insulting our allies, not supporting people specifically looking for support in other countries, bold faced lies during your speeches, indifference to taxpayers, treating all citizens as though they have the same IQ’s as the ones that generally support you. You have proven yourself to be the biggest mistake this country has ever made. You’re a narcisistic empty suit that has never, not one day, represented ALL Americans. You’ve managed to satisfy a small group of people with your redistribution programs but you’ve betrayed this country and our allies. You’re on a mission to “fundamentally transform” the same country where you were allowed to rise to the most powerful positon on earth? To a normal person that would be a “clue” that you might be wrong. Not to someone that is hellbent on bringing us to our knees, bowing to our enemies, bending over to people that want the worst for America and its citizens, and hoping we’re at the mercy of the rest of the world at the expense of our lives, money, and liberty. Your Presidency is definitely historical. You’re the first President that had the interests of everyone else but us as your priority. You’re the first President that has inflicted so much damage on our country that it will take decades to recover… if ever so that our children might have the chances that YOU had. You’re the first President where US citizens openly question whether or not you’re actively working for our enemies or trying to turn us into a Socialistic dictatorship. You’ve effectively killed our economy and our morale. You sir, need to step back, get rid of the morons that surround you and start being a President.
