Arpaio ideal GOP leader

The Spokesman-Review

While the GOP thrashes around asking “Who is our conservative leader?” they fail noticing a real gem under their collective noses. This candidate is a hard-boiled, no-nonsense tactician in dealing with those that threaten our way of life and facilitates what he espouses. Decisions are final with no wishy-washy “maybes.” His greatest forte is aiming right to the heart of a matter without nibbling around the edges. Followers support him ferociously, re-electing him to his post without even a campaign.

He is already well-known as Joe Arpaio, sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz. If there’ll be any bloodletting trying to coax him into running for president, it’ll be from his constituents in Arizona giving up Joe.

Leftists, liberals and the ACLU absolutely hate the man being so effective. America would become a formidable foe to anyone trying to step on his country’s toes and he would tell them so right to their face. No hand-wringers or weepy appeasers like some presidents.

Our country sorely needs him.
