The GOPís dangerous animals (Obama's BC investigator Joe Arpaio!)
Washington Post ^ | August 31, 2012 | Dana Milbank

Posted on 08/31/2012 9:42:29 PM PDT by Seizethecarp

Arpaio, you’ll recall, is the guy who claims that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a forgery, who calls for the arrest and deportation of millions of illegal immigrants, who is being sued for racial profiling, and who has been an outspoken champion of the Arizona immigration crackdown largely invalidated by the Supreme Court.

At the zoo, Arpaio argued that there is no daylight between him and Romney. “The governor’s stance corresponds with my stance,” the sheriff said. “Everything he says, I agree with him.” He further boasted that he was Romney’s “campaign guy in Arizona” in 2008 and that he conferred with Romney during this year’s debates, during which Romney buried other opponents for being insufficiently tough on immigration.

Arpaio justifiably took credit for establishing the party’s position on immigration. “I don’t know how to say this without being egotistical,” he said, but “I have a lot of support across the nation from all these delegates.” Asked if he was hurting Republicans, he scoffed. “If I’m hurting the party, why did all the people running for president either visit my office or call me?” he asked. “And they all want my endorsement.”

Dana Milbank protesteth too much, methinks! Why continue to flog a story line that supposedly has no merit?

I don't believe that "the Arizona immigration crackdown largely invalidated by the Supreme Court" is a correct characterization of Arpaio's methods in AZ.

Glad to see Brewer and lots of GOP-e willing to appear with Arpaio even after he upgraded his Obama BC forgery assessment from "probable cause" to "legally provable in court"

This story is at #2 on the "most popular" list at WaPo at the moment.

Arpaio ping. Arpaio is now an “animal” on the WaPo opinion page. How's that for civility?

Joe Arpaio endorsed Democrat Janet Napolitano for governor of Arizona.

He isn’t a Republican.

Arpaio is right. Both COLB’s are conjured. Certainly the latest one which was referred to as a “long form” COLB is forged. The technical evidence is indisputable.

LOL... it’s obvious that the government lawyers do not want to cross swords with Sheriff Joe in a courtroom. There are too many crafty ways a lawyer can get things into evidence, and once those balls start rolling, things can get mighty scary for THE WON.

Correct. "Look, a squirrel!"

Eagerly awaiting the next CCP presser. How they plan to top July's is anybody's guess.

Thank God there is someone like our Sheriff Joe around to drive predators like Millbank to grief and to drink.

Notice that Millbank is too afraid to come to Phoenix and say his rants to Sheriff Joe's face.

Without further clarification it would easily be assumed to be a democrat.

Yes...because unlike the civil lawsuits....Arpaio can bring up the Birth Cert/Eligibiliy issue without the “does not have standing” horse excrement judges have been using.

And, a President who may not be legally allowed to hold an office...cannot legally order to do anything while in that capacity
