Joe Arpaio Makes Urgent Fundraising Plea To Fight 'Radical Extremists' Seeking To Recall Him

On Wednesday, activists from the Respect Arizona coalition filed registration paperwork officially kicking off a campaign to remove the controversial sheriff from his post. While they'll need 300,000 signatures to trigger the recall election, leaders of the group have experience in the form of a successful 2011 effort to topple Arizona state Sen. Russell Pearce (R), who was widely regarded as the architect of the state's highly controversial SB 1070 immigration law.

Saddam would be Obama's problem now.
Good thing he's one less enemy for him to worry about, huh?
You'd think the Democrats would be thrilled that he's gone since they wanted to get rid of him too.
So what do you think the UN meant when they issued a warning to Saddam of "serious consequences" if he tried to bamboozle them one more time?
I always wondered about that myself.
I'm sure most people are happy he is out of power including the Iranians. Homer does not think it was worth the cost of 100's of thousands of lives and trillions of dollars.

If George the second had never invaded Iraq, Obama would not be POTUS__If BushCo had not fkd that war up so badly, Obama would not be POTUS. Bush advanced Obama to the oval office and McCain ushered him to his seat.

No Hypocrisy at all.
We invaded Afghanistan to get Bin Laden. I have no problem with that action. My problem as to do with how that war was waged.
The hypocrisy is yours as you rant about Libya & Mali.
What's the difference Davey?
None what so ever-except Saddam was an oil pilfering, Kurds into whey murdering, nation depleting, snake of a thug rogue dictator. Kind of like what's his face Khadafi...only worse on a far larger scale to regional stability.

No damn difference what so ever. It's all the same, whether you choose to admit it or not.

And BTW, just so you cannot deny the hypocricy-you even stated it yourself- that we are in the region (still) "helping to fight terrorists".

So why the big LIE and sham BS about Libya. Why didn't they just tell the truth to start with, and state the FACTS to the America public as they REALLY were?

HYPOCRICY (and lies of ommission) in action.

Just admit it...and quit trying to weasel away from the TRUTH, worm.

Many adults realize Al Qaeda is just one, of many, armed wings of Islam, a sub-group, just like the SS was to the Nazis.
Many adults also realize it took time to track Osama and eventually, it was dumped in Obama's lap, eeek!- he HAD to do something. Beverly gave him permission and after careful vacillation Barry said,"O..(stammer)...(gul p)....K." Powerful stuff. Shortly thereafter, Obama danced in the streets.
Obama didn't have a clue the operation was happening. He thought he'd be playing golf all goddam day that day. Now, give me a break here. The president is going to invade an allied country and kill bin Laden, and he's going to go golfing?
You really don't have a clue in the world what has to happen to cover all the bases for an op like that. Yet, here you are spewing the most ignorant crap on this site.

Yep must be it. Obama called up the Al Qaeda leadership & said he'd give them weapons.

Seriously, everyone should stop answering that rainman; he's been asking the same question for weeks. Just like that moran in KY who is still asking what we're doingin Libya. Ignore it.
Has it occured to anyone that since President Obama has been President that there have been no new residents added to Guantanamo?
That's because he is blowing them to smithereens without trail and no chance to interrogate for information. If Bush was doing that you libtards would be howling at the top of your lungs!!!

Every prominent Democrat including Bill Clinton did - subscribed to the crap that Saddam was a real threat, I mean. So did the UN as you might recall.
And al Qaeda did claim Iraq the frontline of the war.
So they must have subscribed to that crap too.
I wonder if the Iranians ever sent Bush a thank you note for destorying Iraq?

You act as though all the rebels were Al Qaeda. This is certainly not even close to the case.

A lot of work was done to try to get any weapons heading into Libya not fall into the hands of terrorists.

The FBI just killed Jimmy Lee Dykes and no one is complaining. The media is complaining though because the FBI won't explain in detail how they were able to use explosives to kill Dykes without harming the child. Should mention that the military assisted the FBI in some manner.
Exactly. Yes, Leon Panetta authorized the use of equipment, not specified. Everyone thinks they have the right to know everything; heard Wolf Blitzer asking totally ridiculous questions of law enforcement yesterday; asking them to reveal every detail of how and what was said by the hostage negotiaters. Enough already.
So glad that boy is alive.
