What a co-in-ci-dence. The very next day after the RNC ends without any dramatic birther scandal, the investigation into Arpaio is dropped.

If I didn't know it was just a coincidence, I'd be tempted to suspect something other than a coincidence.

Cheers!

It was obvious this was a political witch-hunt, payback if you will, and a waste of taxpayer’s money and a waste of DOJ resources.

Just another episode in the most corrupt “regime” in the history of the USA.

I hope this haunts the current generation and that the result will be the death of the Democrat Party and another generation before a Liberal is elected as POTUS.

It looks like their “witch hunt” didn’t work out. Arpaio hasn’t done anything wrong and they knew it all along. Hopefully, when Americans regain control of our government and country, we can give the commie left a little “payback”. I’d like to see them start with a lot of the commie left’s, out of control “Federal judges”.

World’s shortest article. One line about how they will not file any charges, & two about the unproved allegations.

The Obama/Holder DOJ started their investigation of Arpaio within 100 days after Obama took office.

The big surprise is that there was no surprise.

(...and here I thought it was going to be Trump making a cameo stage appearance to say, "Obama, you're FIRED!")

Cheers!

That guy must have the cleanest rectum in the nation. If he didn’t they wouldn’t have filed multiple charges.

What a laughing stock this administration is.

Holder is a pathetic loser pansy.

Congratulations Sheriff Arpaio. My hat is off to you bud.

Thank you for hanging in there.

What’s the matter Holder, don’t want to wash this dirty laundry before the election? LMAO

Arpaio would have mopped the courtroom floor with your sorry ass.

not the greatest fan of Romney but at least he;ll shut all of these stupid lawsuits down against those who enforce the laws.

AZ,GA, TX,AZ etc can all rest if we take power and the lawsuits drop but I hope that there is an investigation into how older has perverted justice and the DOJ overhauled

Just like the prosecution against the CIA agents who led the interrogation efforts against terrorists...they probably know very shortly there will be a new sheriff in town, one that doesn’t take prosecutorial misconduct lightly.

My choice for US AG will be Rudy Giuliani...

Heard this morning that the DOJ decided to FINALLY drop possible charges against our several of our military personnel that Obama’s injustice department wanted to prosecute for torture. Don’t you feel that the timing is interesting?

Are they feeling the heat, FINALLY? I’m sure Holder is spending most of his time shredding documents - since he probably sees the handwriting on the wall - This is going to be a GOP LANDSLIDE!

Holder knew Arpaio would mop the courtroom floor with the Federal attorneys rear ends if the suit went forward, it was a bluff that Arpaio didn't fall for.

well doesn't surprise me, but not for the same reasons as you.

The convention nowadays is jut a”good-time feel good variety” show. It's aimed at the wishy washy independents who are barely aware that there is an election let alone what the issues are. Many of them are of the ilk “Why-can’t-we-all-just-get-along?”. When I hear this I always ask, ‘So you think there is too much partisan rancor in DC?’. Of course they answer yes, then I say well then you think it would be better if everybody always agreed and marched in step together. The particularly simpleminded of that group readily agree with that statement. I then remind them that places like that are dictatorships or absolute monarchies. North Korea or Saudi Arabia come to mind. Sometimes they just get mad and walk away. If they want to discuss it more I then ask ‘So you want discussion where people of differing ideas for solutions of problems discuss them then come to an agreement? And that people who feel strongly about there positions should express those opinions forcefully?’ They then agree I reply well then my friend that's what we have now its called politics or partisanship! Then they say ‘Well some people never come to an agreement or compromise!’. I then reply you want them to be forced to ? By then the barely aware independents are sick of talking to me.

Another thing we readers of this site forget, this site is NOT representative of the thinking of the average GOP'er. I keep forgetting that too. They are far more liberal then the the average Freeper. I often get surprised by that when I venture forth into run-of-the-mill GOP-Land and talk politics. I guess that's why Romney won the primaries. Yes the GOP elites did at times bias the deck, but still Romney had sufficient support to win either by pluralities or straight out.

Unfortunately that's the truth of it. I don't like it, but there is a lot of things I don't like I have to live with.

"My choice for US AG will be Rudy Giuliani..."

Giuliani lead the witch hunt investigation against Congressman Charlie Wilson back when Wilson was the only man in America fighting the Soviet Union in Afghanistan by arming the Northern Alliance with American Stinger missiles.

Giuliani wnet to Las Vegas and subpoenaed every limo driver in town. Yes every one. He asked every limo driver in Las Vegas if they had seen Wilson snort cocaine.

In a rare event for any survey question, 100% said "No."

The Obama administration is simply removing issues that Republicans can use against them in next two months.

They do not want to give Joe the publicity.

I imagine the order is a terse:

“Drop anything the conservative SuperPAC’s could use to make an attack advertisement”
