Gov. Jan Brewer took a swipe at President Barack Obama on Friday, releasing a YouTube video that criticizes the commander in chief for making light of the Arizona's border struggles.

I say if President Obama can dish it, he should certainly be able to take it. I cannot remember Reagan at all. What I remember about Clinton pretty much centers on his affair. But I do remember Bush well, so he's the only real gauge I have to compare against Obama. Using that, I see that Obama is much more willing to go into attack mode on these sorts of things. He lets his opinion come out as fact and outright smears people not doing what "he" would do. After smearing the entire Cambridge police force after admittedly not knowing the facts, and then smearing the entire Supreme Court after grossly misrepresenting their ruling, I fully expect him to continue to smearing folks whenever he sees fit. Bush was dreadfully wrong in some of his decisions that lead to wars. So if anyone wants to quibble that his actions were "worse," then there's certainly a valid argument there. However, I've never seen a president this partisan and this willing to basically insult people in my entire life. He just assumed the white cop racially profiled a black man. He just assumed the Supreme Court ruled to open the door for unlimited corporation campaign financing. He just assumed that Arizona's law is legalized racial profiling. Well, I'll just assume he's a schmuck and should be referred to as former President Barack Obama come 2013.

Very good points and I like the name. Ya know, they talk about Biden's gaffes, but what about boy wonder?

They're not really gaffes when you're that ridiculously famous. Instead of people gasping and wondering wtf he's talking about, they just latch onto what he says and hold it as truth. I think this is how scientology caught on.

I think that Brewer's commercial would win my vote for her. I'm glad Brewer/Arizona are firing back. The "joke" at the White House Correspondents dinner was not funny when I heard it the first time. It's still not funny...

I am glad that Arizona is calling him out.
