Conservatives love Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer. Not only is she consistently conservative — unlike a certain Republican politician she shares a state with — she’s been willing to do battle with the White House on the issue of immigration even before the president’s illegal executive action on the matter.
As she leaves office, Gov. Brewer has a Christmas present for our commander in chief — a brief but apropos description of his time in office that has the left going crazy.
In an interview with Fox News, Brewer said that Obama is a “failed president” and likened him to a despot.
“He’s been a very big disappointment to me,” Brewer said. “I think he has done things that certainly we would never have expected any president to do — by executive order and because he says so.”
Brewer also rejected the attempts by the president and the left to paint those against rule by imperial executive order as bigots.
“Those of us born and raised in the southwest are not racists,” Gov. Brewer said. “Those people are our neighbors. We go to church with us. Their children go to school. They marry into our families.
“This has nothing to do with racism,” she added. “The bottom line is the rule of law and what it is doing to our country.”
Brewer also criticized the president for his negative reaction to her description of him in her book, “Breakfast with Scorpions,” where she called him “dismissive and patronizing.”
“He is very thin-skinned,” Brewer said. “He was very concerned about how I portrayed him in my book.”
“It was a truth-telling book and we need our borders secure, and he walked away from me.”

As for the iconic photo of Brewer wagging her finger at the president on the tarmac in Phoenix, the governor says she doesn’t regret it, although it did make for uncomfortable times.
“He was not very nice to me that day,” Brewer said of the encounter.
