AZ Gov. Jan Brewer Dubs Obama the "Comic-in-Chief"; Advises Him "Don't Give Up Your Day Job" - Video 5/15/10
Here is video of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's remarks at a press conference where she announced alongside Gov. Sarah Palin an effort to Secure our Nation's Borders.
Brewer blasted Obama as the "Comic-in-Chief" for his "inappropriate" joke about Arizona at the White House Correspondents' Dinner recently. Obama joked, "We all know what happens in Arizona when you don't have ID -- adios, amigos."
"While the president is making wisecracks and playing racial politics, some groups have suggested that Arizona be punished for enforcing laws that our federal government has failed to enforce -- that is misguided at best. . . . "
"It's fair to ask whether he intends to be the Commander-in-Chief or the Comic-in-Chief. Since the president's joke was so inappropriate, I suppose, if I wanted to join in the comedian game, I could suggest that he should not give up his day job. Unfortunately, though, he isn't doing very well at that one, either."
Brewer ended her remarks by saying this is really not an "immigration crisis - This is a border security crisis."
