"as a matter of fairness in case he wouldn't want me to support him."

Well that's an interesting statement.

Donald Trump endorsed Romney, where’s the outrage from that?

Arpaio added he believes he is doing the president a favor.

Sort of a cryptic remark.

Sounds like Joe might have something and doesn’t want to paint anyone into a corner without their consent. sheriff Joe is very popular in his region and admired by many in the US. The Posse couldn’t hurt him even if it is a dud. It could hurt a canidate. I would expect Team Obama is scaed or he wouldn’t have sent holder after Joe. Joe says “bring it on”. A true Patriot!

No matter what Arpio has or doesn’t have, he’s smart enough to know that anyone who he endorses will take some fire for it.

Pretty honorable of Arpio warn a candidate of the possibility of incoming fire ahead of time.

“Arpaio added he believes he is doing the president a favor.”

I think Arpaio is being sardonic!

The story also says:

“Arpaio explained he wanted to inform the candidate of his investigation ‘as a matter of fairness in case he wouldn't want me to support him.’”

IMO, it would only be “a matter of fairness” to give Santorum a chance to refuse Arpaio’s endorsement if the “something shocking” uncovered by the Posse could raise a ruckus that Santorum wouldn't want to be associated with...and Arpaio said Santorum was fine with the investigation.

However it is not exactly clear whether Arpaio told Santorum the _findings_ of the investigation, which are to be announced March 1.

I sincerely hope that Joe found irrefutable evidence that Pres_ _ent Obama (I'll give him an ID when he gives me one) has no Constitutional standing to be the POTUS.

It would make me extremely proud to be, "Just another Joe".

The trouble is that the courts will decide that there isn’t a human being alive that has standing.

More media bias (of course, it’s CNN) using the word “controversial” sheriff.

By whose standards CNN? Yours? Drop dead.

These days, an upper-echelon law enforcement official actually enforcing immigration law is "controversial".

I have a queasy feeling that our president had a job he couldn't report on his tax returns. Boy Toy.

The sheriff will release in about a week. I'm prepared for something totally off the wall. This is the first real vetting. Our heads may spin.

"I'm prepared for something totally off the wall."

I must admit that I have no idea what is going to be announced. Logic would seem to dictate that after this much time spent on the investigation, and then a delay until after the AZ primary on 28 February to announce the results, that whatever it's going to be, it's likely to be significantly more than saying "Well follks, the Cold Case Posse looked into things very, very thoroughly, and I'm happy to report: Never Mind."

At one time his office quoted him as saying the “microfiche roll” of sequential birth certificates could not be tampered with and if allegations of tampering were true, the microfiche roll reveal what went on. No one else thought is this that I know of.

Hum. That doesn’t sound particularly promising. But at the same time, it would be really good to put the Birth certificate nonsense behind us. Then we can move onto the legitimate issue of Minor V. Happersett.

“Nice”

Isn’t this guy the one who makes Maricopa County inmates wear pink underwear and eat baloney sandwiches in tent cities in the desert heat?

“Nice,” coming from this man, is a smile with teeth in it.

Any word on whether or not he has briefed the other candidates? I worry about Santorum for the simple reason that he served in the Senate WITH Obama, and was in the Senate during the 2008 election when he would have had a chance to say AND do something about the problems all the way back then.

Anyway, for the sake of the country I really hope Sheriff Joe has found things solid and concrete on Obama that at the very least raise SERIOUS doubt as to his fitness to rule our country, as well as the possible fraud of the entire DNC nominating “committee” or whomever is responsible for this matter, including Pelosi herself.

God Bless and Protect Sheriff Joe, and all those working in this quest for the truth. I sometimes feel as though people with any sense of logic and justice are a very rare breed.

Yes, but those same courts might have trouble claiming that an entire state does not have standing, and there are a few governors who I think might try it, if they had proof.

"I briefed Santorum on Birth Certificate Investigation"

I thought the issue with us conservatives was not the Usurper's birth certificate per se, but the citizenship of his father.

At any rate, I don't have good vibes at all about any earth-shaking conclusions emanating from the good sheriff's investigation.

I almost desperately hope he proves me incorrect.
