2nd Mayor Says Obama ‘Wasn’t Tense At All’ During Brewer Encounter

Source: TPM



<SNIP>

But Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton, who was standing just feet away from the president and the governor on Wednesday during their now-infamous encounter, told TPM that Obama seemed calm the whole time.

“He wasn’t tense at all,” Stanton said on Friday. “The guy’s a pro.”

Though Stanton declined to discuss exactly what the governor and president said to each other, he said Obama’s classic coolness was evident.

“He doesn’t get animated, but he looks you in the eye and tells you what he thinks,” Stanton said. “And I think that’s honestly what he did is he looked the governor in the eye and spoke and told her what he was really feeling.”

2. This whole thing is a puzzle to me.

I can assume the woman is being honest about how she felt, especially since there were witnesses right there. For the life of me, I can't imagine why she would feel "threatened". They are in public, with cameras everywhere for pete's sakes.

All I can figure is that she had herself so worked up before the meeting that it didn't matter how it actually went.

4. Simple answer - she lies

Remember, this is the woman who very plainly stated:

“Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert, either buried or just lying out there, that have been beheaded.”

That was a lie.
