JD Hayworth Owes Sarah Palin a Thank You. WE Owe McCain OURS.
3/27/10 | vanity

Posted on 03/27/2010 9:14:27 AM PDT by CondoleezzaProtege

Had Sarah Palin not been on the national scene right now, things would be SO MUCH WORSE! Obamacare and Cap & Tax would have passed months ago without her contributions to public discourse. (Death Panels anyone? Or her Washington Post editorial on Climategate?)

Obamacare not only would have passed sooner, but it would have come without any of the "compromises."

Beginning with her endorsement of Doug Hoffman in the NY-23, we take for granted how much her name lends legitimacy to the Tea Party movement and to ALL the *contested* primaries going on in the country, INCLUDING the one in Arizona!

The fact is: J.D. Hayworth himself has benefitted from the momentum largely initiated by Sarah Palin.

Palin was just who we needed at just the right time. By picking her and introducing her to the world stage, John McCain has done more for this country and more for conservatism than any other Republican serving in office right now--and that includes Bachmann, Ryan, Pence, and Demint, etc...

PALIN has outfought them all on our behalf and nobody has communicated our message as effectively to the public as she has. She has truly made a difference not just politically, but culturally as well. I think we take for granted how crucial her decision to resign and bring the fight to the national media has been. She acts as our representative on the Left's primary turf.

In many ways, Obama's presidency has been a blessing in disguise both for this country and for conservatism as a whole. The times we're in allow for a true patriot like Palin to shine even more. Quite frankly, the media fanaticism surrounding Palin has been a blessing in disguise too. People pay attention to everything she says!

Other thoughts:

I certainly am glad Mr. Mitt Flip Flop Romneycare is not our president and neither is Governor Huckabee. And guess what? I'm glad that next time, should Palin run, she's running for the #1 spot and not #2.

We can speculate all we want about the inner politics of the McCain/Palin campaign, but the fact is, without John McCain's brave and BOLD decision to pick her as his runningmate, we would have no Sarahcuda fighting the Communists in power today!

Which leads to my final point:

I find it ridiculous that we have a bonafide communist serving in the White House and some see it more fit to sneer and jeer at Vietnam War Veteran. Even if veterans such as John McCain are not entitled to our votes, they are certainly entitled to our thanks, our salute, and our RESPECT. He has literally put his life on the line in the service of this country and has the scars to prove it. Can't say that about most of his fellow Republicans serving in Congress, even the most "conservative" ones.

At a time when we are fighting terrorists and the security of our country is at the brink, at a time when our nation's leaders want to fund abortion mills, why are we villainizing one of the most crucial defenders of our military to have served in office and someone with a 100% Pro-Life record?! Mind boggling. No, his record is not perfect, but let's give him credit where it's due.

So again, I am not saying people have to like or vote for McCain--I don't know that I would either, (though I personally am not too impressed with J.D. Hayworth but that's just me.) But, we can at least appreciate his primary political contribution: introducing the world to Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska, "For such a time as this."

Good points, its time for all the incumbents and especially backstabbing InSain to go. I understand why she did it, but he never stood up for her when she was being attacked.

Hi mnehring,

Nice try at that interpretation. Of course that’s not what I was saying.

Her message, her communication of the message, and her savvy in bringing that message to the public —has allowed for her to play a huge part in legitimizing the contested primaries going on all over the country. She was the most high-profile politician to start the trend by endorsing Doug Hoffman over Dede Scozzafava in the NY-23.

I swear to God...sorry...that some here act just like they did over Bush and amnesty.

Sarah is great. I doubt anyone supports her here more than I.

But I am not with her on this...I’ve had enough.

Mccain is using her.

He is not out pal.....he hates the right.

“So again, I am not saying people have to like or vote for McCain—I don’t know that I would either, (though I personally am not too impressed with J.D. Hayworth but that’s just me.)”

Not being an Arizonan, I, too, can’t vote for either of them. However, I am supporting Hayworth with my contributions because there is a clear choice between the two.

An amnesty will be at least as devastating to this country as Obummer DeathCare will be. It impresses me when I see Hayworth forthrightly working against amnesty and McPain supporting it (not openly during his reelection season, of course).

There’s a clear choice here—any conservative should be able to see that.

As for Palin: my mind is open on any future run for office she might decide to make but, should that office be the presidency, she has not yet convinced me she is the candidate for conservatives. I will see what positions she stakes out and who she supports for other offices.

I feel like people are missing the point, so I wanted to restate what I mean.

Governor Palin's conservative message, her communication of that message, and her savvy in bringing that message to the public —has allowed for her to play a huge part in legitimizing the contested primaries going on all over the country. She was the most high-profile politician to start the trend by endorsing Doug Hoffman over Dede Scozzafava in the NY-23.

I am not saying people have to VOTE for John McCain. What I am saying is, "underdog" Tea Party sympathetic candidates such as Hayworth, Rand Paul, etc... have largely benefitted from the momentum Governor Palin has initiated. By lending her name to the Tea Party movement and for being so vocal about her encouragement of contested primaries--we all benefit as a whole.

How John McCain and Lindsay Graham gave Islamic terrorists Constitutional rights and why judges have to release them.

http://article.nationalreview.com/429488/the-mark-of-mccain/andrew-c-mccarthy

“That is what Senator Graham did in 2005. Along with Sen. John McCain and other grandstanding Republicans, he gave cover to the Left’s “torture” demagoguery by spearheading enactment of the McCain Amendment. Under the rubric of “cruel, inhuman, and degrading treatment,” that provision vested alien enemies held overseas with constitutional rights against coercive interrogation.”

McCain has stabbed us in the back repeatedly. We may have lost our country from good thanks to MCCAIN-Feingold.

I have no RESPECT for a stooge for Soros.

The only reason McLame picked Palin was because he was slipping in the polls and didn’t have enough Conservative support.
Palin’s popularity was an unintended benefit (and a good one at that)

I believe that most Arizona voters understand that Sarah Palin is supporting John McCain out of loyalty and that her visit will not affect their votes.

Palin’s Facebook site just went over 1.5 million fans. Mitt Romney has 266,432 Facebook fans.

Mac wins...she pushed him over and we get him again...yuck

Mac loses and she looks like she hasn’t the power ....

You cannot get elected President without the active support of influential and senior party members. They are the key to financing a presidential campaign. Supporting McCain now is a demonstration of loyalty. Palin will not be able to ask the party for loyalty when she needs it to get elected unless they believe she will reciprocate for them. Remember when Bush supported Arlen Specter over Toomey?

No, Sarah wasn’t McRat’s first pick. He only settled on her because he knew there were skeletons in the closet. I still say the GOP did NOT want this term and did everything they could not to win. Sarah backfired on McRat and the GOP.

So, thank you, Sarah!

McRat can sit on it and spin.

It’s one thing to admire Palin’s contributions to the Conservative movement, it’s something all together different to depend on it.

PDS - Palin Dependency Syndrome.

The constituency needs to be smarter about its role in the election process. AZ must show the way.

Very well said and I agree. She is way out of bounds on this. She could have easily gracefully declined stating that her stance on the Constitution clearly do no match Juans.

Isn’t this what the Conservatives wanted to hear.

I would say the same if I thought J.D. Hayworth were that much better of a candidate and if I didn't have my doubts about him...

Plus I think it would have been dishonorable for Palin to do otherwise and be worse for her long term. Sure, she can't make 100% of people 100% of the time, (don't think she ever has) but she is doing the right thing here...and whatever is better for her both politically and personally is better for us. (At least I think so, I can see that you would disagree.)

I still stand by what I said. Every conservative in a contested primary owes her a thank you.

If Palin didn’t support McLame after he picked her for VP, the liberal media would have a field day with — the GOP in disarray, the fringe running the party, blah, blah, blah.
She just shouldn’t over do it for him, a speech or two and let the AZ voters decide.

I agree. I love Sarah, and I agree with her on a lot. I don’t agree with her on her McCain endorsement (I understand why she would do it, but I still disagree with her). If I lived in Arizona, I would still not vote for McCain. If she ran for president, then I would still be interested in voting for her.

This one seems pretty simple, but it seems like a lot of folks want to immediately shoot and bury ANYONE who disagrees with them on ANYTHING. That’s just not a good idea.

Sarah’s a free agent and can do whatever she wants to at this point. I’d rather believe that she’s campaigning for McCain because she truly admires the man and agrees with his stances. That is the honorable explanation. If that is the case, it’s good that we are learning more about her before we invest too much of ourselves in her stock.

On the other hand, if the reason she is campaigning for the lying SOB is because she is only doing it out of some perceived “loyalty” and “indebtedness” to him, and that she doesn’t really agree with his stances - well then - I think that is dispicable and paints her as the kind of “professional politician” that I tend to despise.

As far as thanking Sarah for “lending us her name” in the Tea Party movement - the movement is independent of any one leader. In fact, the only time I have seen Sarah at a Tea Party event was at that convention in Tennessee. I didn’t see her in DC when the healthcare thing was going down. I’ve seen Michele Bachmann at several of them - on the front line of the battle, fighting the good fight, but not so much Sarah.

We had better get both of our feet planted firmly in the ground, because we’ve got a huge fight ahead of us & we can’t afford to be placing our faith in people that won’t deliver when it comes to crunch time.

Exactly. John McCain picked Sarah Palin for one reason and one reason only. Political expediency! Without her, Obama would have trounced with a major landslide. And for you republicans who do not understand this go look at the history of what John McCain has done to the republican party with his backstabbing antics!

McCain hates conservatives! McCain, Snowe, Collins, and Graham all rinos need to go, or sit down and STFU!

There is no argument against Palin for supporting McCain, because there is no way to make the claim that if Palin hadn’t done this transient little favor for McCain, the attacks against her wouldn’t have been a lot worse. (Not to mention the blow to her conscience for betraying her promise.)

The argument falls flat.

I find myself agreeing to some extent, although it’s based only on what I’ve seen in a handful of cable network interviews of Hayworth.
