    He said he was going to do it; now he has.

    He went further than just that, however.

    http://www.wnd.com/2012/07/arpaio-obama-probe-finds-national-security-threat/

    Is it still a witch hunt? Was this "investigation" really just a massive publicity stunt by a politically fanatical individual? Is he bending reality to suit his own ideas, or is there a possibility that this investigation was meaningful? How should Obama/Obama's Campaign react to this news? Will it just fade away?

    I thought I'd make the thread before MisterCooper does. :eekdance:

    I watched the circus live. Lots of misleading stuff packed into the hour and a half or so. The Obama campaign won't even acknowledge it.

    It disturbs me that a clown like this keeps getting re-elected.

    Obama hasn't been reelected to anything yet?

    Meh. It might've been a big deal before the election in 2008 but honestly this seems like most bad research. You start with a conclusion and try to find evidence of it.

    Sheriff Joe was easily trolled:

    His reaction was priceless.

    I think you are confused. Obama hasn't been re-elected.

    Oh you mean the Sheriff. Well he's got a vendetta. He's been under attack from Obama's White House. I don't blame him for trying to defend himself in any way he can.

    I do think that the research is useless. If it was true there is still no way Obama would be impeached before the election. If he is re-elected most likely he'll have some protection from democrats in Congress. The research itself is dubious as I said it started with a conclusion and tried to prove it. (Not a hypothesis to test there is a big difference) I don't think the sheriff is right

    Unless you've lived on the border you can know for sure. He could be the new Bull Conner. He might also be a genuinely good officer who is doing the right thing against the countries opinion (locally I don't know)

    I didn't see a poll, so... Yes. Yes. Yes, No. Not at all. It already has.

    Anything that saves us from that is a positive in my book!

    Anybody who does are those who should actually be forced to wear pink underwear, and live in the desert in tents without AC.

    And World News Daily? Really?

    I really think that the possibility of there being a problem with the birth certificate is smaller than the probability that Obama's team would have tampered with it in a coverup if, if, there were a problem with it.

    Their "strongest" claimed evidence was obtained by lying to a 95 year old and allegedly recording a phone call with her (though they are not planning to release the audio of that call).

    You know, George Lopez is such a scum, i'd think a lot of people regardless of political beliefs would like to see Sheriff Joe beat the hell out of him.

    I think most people would like to see George Lopez beat the hell out of any similar bigot, much less "scum" like Sheriff Joe.

    According to the coding at the time, 9 meant "Other, nonwhite" - thus African is not "white" (though an African could be white) and does not match any other specific codes.

    Sheriff Joe is #1 on my list of people I would like to see get their ass kicked.

    Well, I disagree. A lot of people in Hollywood dispise Lopez.

    Fwiw, I'd be willing to bet Sheriff Joe could take him. Lopez is a wimp.

    Given how you use threats of violence yourself, I'm not surprised in the least.

    Is George Lopez the faintly ethnic actor from Saved by the Bell?
