President Obama hasn’t entered the debate realm quite yet -- but that didn’t stop him from getting into a testy exchange Wednesday with Arizona’s Republican Governor Jan Brewer. The Today Show reports...

“Wednesday afternoon when he touched down outside of Phoenix the President had a tense exchange with Gov. Jan Brewer about her book which characterized Mr. Obama as lecturing her over a 2009 meeting over immigration.”

Brewer says President Obama criticized her over her book -- saying it didn’t portray him well. But a writer for The Phoenix New-Times says regardless of what they talked about, Brewer needed to play nice.

“Leave it to Jan Brewer to humiliate Arizona -- yet again … President Barack Obama was in town today to tour an Intel factory getting built in Chandler -- and it took Brewer all of five seconds to make a g******** scene.”

A blogger for “Stop the ACLU” offers a different take, writing...

“Obama is not particularly happy when people write bad things about him, because he is the anointed one. He’s the only one that can say bad things about people and/or throw them under the bus. Everyone else is just supposed to sit there and take it when Obama bad mouths them …”

Hot Air notes, this is not the first time President Obama has gone head-to-head with a governor while visiting.

“He once surprised [Louisiana Gov. ] Bobby Jindal by whining about a letter Jindal had sent to [Ag. Secretary] Tom Vilsack regarding food stamps. O was in Louisiana that day for a visit related to the BP oil spill but turns out he was preoccupied with the idea that Jindal’s letter had made him look bad … ”

Finally a writer for the Arizona Republic says while there’s a problem, there’s also a solution.

“ … diplomatic protocol really does not give room for anger-venting tiffs on the tarmac. Especially with a president of the United States who is visiting your state. Especially in front of the world … So, apparently, a ‘margarita summit’ is now in order.”

There’s still no word from the Obama administration about its take about what happened.
