Skip to comments.J.D. Hayworth Is No Conservative Hero( supported more spending then Mccain)
Posted on 03/26/2010 2:18:03 PM PDT by AKReportz
He was heavily involved with former "super-lobbyist" Jack Abramoff. Although he later cooperated with federal investigators and was never found to have done anything illegal, Hayworth was the largest recipient of campaign money from the now-convicted Abramoff.Even more disquieting from a conservative philosophical point of view, Hayworth was supportive of the Bush era's big spending -- much more so than the fiscally prudent McCain.
(Excerpt) Read more at politicsdaily.com ...
Hayworth's support of Bush's big-government polices included voting for the No Child Left Behind Act; the paperwork- and red-tape-friendly (and business-unfriendly) Sarbanes-Oxley Act; the pork-laden 2005 highway bill that included the infamous "bridge to nowhere"; and, most expensive of all, a Medicare drug benefit that created more than $7 trillion in unfunded liabilities. What is more, his support for a monstrosity known as the 527 Reform Act, which was intended to close "loopholes" in McCain/Feingold, and which was arguably worse for conservatives than the original article.
So Hayworth opposed McCain/Feingold, but supported the 527 Reform Act. This is telling, because the Republican leadership supported the latter. Hayworth's backing of it, therefore, shows his willingness to bend to the will of his party's establishment. This is hardly the record of a bold and independent conservative.
Keating 5 JUAN.
But he doesn’t support cap and trade, not a small isuue.....
We know that McCain betrays conservatives at every step.
Hayworth might, but he might not.
It’s called playing the odds.
McCain MUST go.
I don’t care. It’s worth it just to get rid of Meghan.
Comrade: Pay Controls Commissariat
McNuts: Unconstitutional Limits on Free Speech
Okay. So now we know that both McCain AND Hayworth suck, what do we do now? Go with the ‘RAT? Yeah, that’s the ticket!
McCain Kennedy Comprehensive Citizenship Give Away to Latin America Bill
What do you want to bet that this has Juan’s fingerprints all over it?
McCain needs to be put out to pasture. Go JD Hayworth.
Oh and McCain is more conservative??? LMAO!
McCain is stooge at best. He wants Amnesty, taxes, believe in the phony environmental movement. HECK NO to McStooge!
Don’t forget everyone. Remember what he said about Obama during the election campaign. He said Obama was not a Socialist and we could trust him. McStooge also said to not use Obama’s middle name. Finally, McCain went after conservatives of his own party for running an anti Obama. I believe it was in North Carolina or Tennessee.
Besides, I am not looking for a conservative hero. Just a someone to fight on behalf of conservatism.
Oh and if you want to know how McCain really feels about politics, then just look at his BIG MOUTH daughter that can’t keep her Trap shut.
He’s gotta be better than McLame.
LMAO! Right.... Not EVEN that...
This is pure unadulterated bullsh*t
Meghan McCain is fine! More cushion for da pushin’!
(supported more spending then Mccain)
Well in that case VOTE MCCAIN, D - Arizona!
McCain/Kerry F the POWS/MIAS
McCain/Feingold F free speech
McCain/Kennedy F American Sovereignty
McCain/Gang of 14
McCain/Terrorist Bill of Rights
McCain/Does not like tax cuts
Good job to the mccain team for finding this! /s
This was investigated, including any involvement Hayworth had with Abramahoff. Please provide us with a list of any wrongdoing for which JD was charged????
If you can't provide such a list, then which are you trying to insinuate???
Guess you prefer McCain?
Listen, dumbnuts, just the TARP alone dwarfs anything Hayworth promoted or voted for. And your POS Rino tried to feed America a 2.6 TRILLION dollar amnesty plan. And Cap and Trade? Regulating vitamins? Relocating Gitmo prisoners?
There is not even a comparison.
McCain has been actively involved in attacks on Conservatives for his own personal gain.
McCain heads the Main Street CPAC which has received 30k from SEIU in 2006.
You spammed this fantasy twice before here, If I recall. And it was pulled before
Nonsense. McCain is worse. Get rid of him. I hope Sarah is done. He made her a millionaire. She paid him back. Fine. Get on with other things now and let the old man be defeated, and then his wife can shack up with her new lover and we can focus on attacking only one McCain (Meghan) instead of two.
So, Hayworth supported a small subset of the crap McCain supported.
Try supporting your position by rebutting the various factual information that others have posted to you on this thread.
Total bullshit. Even Rachel Maddow make that stick. And she spent 3/4 of the interview trying. Hayworth has his enemies. Who doesn't. But he is going to be the next Senator from AZ, God-willing.
Flame me if you want to, I'm fed up. First it's the Stimulus Bill, Cap and Trade, Amnesty, Health Care, and now “THEN McCain”. I'm done....off for more Xanax.
Where was McCains attacks when he was running against Obama. He all but kissed Obama’s butt, now against a Republican he breaks out in attacks.
This is pure RINO Babble IMHO - JD is for border control, and limited government - Juan is for open borders, amnesty for all, and spending to support them!
Juan shows distinct signs of either PTSD or mind control manipulation - how else can you explain his behavior during the campaign - every time he would get ahead, he would come out with a statement like “I don’t understand economics”
Go JD Go ALL RINOS must GO TO PASTURE NOW!
I just don’t have any faith in Republican primary voters in AZ: they just vote for names they have heard about.
Steve? Is that you? Steve Schitz? I mean Schmidt?
McCain is tied far more to both of them, as well as many other things that make him unworthy.
trolling for RINOs? (/s)
AZ doesn’t have too much pastureland. People there stick with their familiar politicians. They would still be voting loyally for DeConcini if he were around.
Don’t be duped. Hayworth is no angel, but he is not the pro-amnesty, pro- anti constitution, etc. that McCain is.
McCain is an absolute disaster for conservatives.
“Unworthy”, yes, but it’s a word unknown by AZ primary voters.
Article is dated 01/27/10.
Look, I don’t know the details on Hayworth. He could be a Bolshevik for all I know. But, sometimes I wonder if the definition of a “conservative” on this board is becoming so limited that nobody meets it.
And just how will Republicans win elections again after the next round of amnesty? I rest my case.
All Viva Juan. /s
In the primary vote for the most conservative candidate.
In the general vote for any ‘R’ over any ‘D’.
Contribute available time and money accordingly.
Keep doing this in every election cycle.
“Corruption and spending — and Hayworth is tied to both of them.”
Nice try, but I’m not buying.
Hayworth was investigated and found innocent, so that means he’s corrupt? Come again?
Hayworth unwisely went along with Bush spending programs. At least he’s a loyal Republican, unlike McCain.
Did he pass MCCAIN-Feingold which gave us the Dem 2006/2008 Congress and Obama 2008?
MCCAIN-Feingold got us to where we are now under ACORN/SEIU tyranny but Obama told us not to fear Obama and that Obama loves The Constitution.
McCain is a liar.
