Arpaio Launches Birther Investigation

DFO: Since Arpaio visited Coeur d'Alene to much fanfare 2 years ago (and sorta endorsed Raul Labrador) and since Gary D has been banned to Spokane and since it is news today, I'll post this with fear & trembling.

Question: Why now?

The Donald As President?

Question: Why is Donald Trump hanging around the Tea Party?

Press Poll: Obama’s Muslim, Not Citizen

I draw attention to the current Coeur d’Alene Press poll with fear and trembling because I chastised individuals this morning for the ongoing “birther” argument in some of the threads at Hucks Online. However, I can’t ignore the question or the answers so far: “What do you think of people who think President Obama is a Muslim and/or not a legal U.S. resident?” At this point, 51% of the respondents marked: “I think they’re right.” 40% have marked: “I think they’re sycophants (which means: “a person who seeks favor by flattering people of wealth or influence” and isn’t exactly the right word). 10% said “I don’t think anything at all.” I’m amazed how many question Obama’s legitimacy and refuse to believe his statements that he’s a Christian. I’m also amazed that individuals who question his birth would be willing to risk splitting this country further apart by being proven right and toppling him. (AP file photo)

Question: What do you make of the Coeur d’Alene Press poll? (BTW, I expect this thread to stay above board and will monitor it to ensure just that)
