Posted on 04/30/2010 10:30:22 AM PDT by rabscuttle385
John McCain has been a RINO (Republican In Name Only) since his first campaign 20+ years ago for the Congressional seat in District #1 here in Arizona. Barry Goldwater never liked or trusted him more like, put up with him. McCain, sounding all of a sudden conservative (he does this each election cycle), is playing to the conservative base in Arizona because he is up for re-election, his unfavorables are HIGH, and the primary race between J.D. Hayworth and McCain has tightened. The McCain camp began attacking Hayworth months ago, and party leadership sent a couple of messages across the bow of Hayworth suggesting that this race is not in the best interest of Arizona or the party.
John McCain is no conservative leader. For years, he courted, the eastern elitist establishment and press. He refused to lead during the presidential campaign, and the only reason he brought in as many votes as he did was because Sarah Palin connected with the old silent majority and Reagan Conservativeswhich is something that is impossible for McCain to do. During the run-up to the 2008 presidential election, Palin actually became a bigger draw than McCain, but his senior advisors did what they could to hobble her.
Why do you think McCain asked Palin to stand by his side during McCains hotly contested primary race for re-election? McCain knows hes in trouble within Arizona, his own state, and he needs Palin to appear credible.

Huh? Who ever said McLame was a “conservative leader”? He was the RATs favorite RINO until Lindsay Graham popped out of the sewer.
Yes, Sarah Palin is campaigning hard to keep this RINO. McPain in position.
Sarah Palin is a disgrace! How dare she claim to be a “conservative” and ENDORSE a RINO!
McPain and Palin, answer this:
“Sen. McCain, why are you pushing for open borders when the majority of your constituents, as well as conservative Americans across the country dont want open borders, and the dissolving of our national sovereignty?
Sen. McCain, what did you say (and agree to) in your private meeting with the Rothschilds prior to the last election for the United States Presidency?
Sen. McCain, why have you not come out to lead the fight to ascertain Obamas legitimate Birth Certificate? Obama and the Democrats made you produce yours. The issue became a major discussion on the floor of the United States Senate where some claimed you were born outside the U.S. and, therefore, ineligible for the office of the presidency. The Democrats were grossly wrong on this, as was proven; so why, Sen. McCain, have you not demanded the same proof of eligibility from Obama? Where is your leadership regarding this important issue?
Other than leaving the campaign trail for 24-hours during your presidential bid, where was been your outcry, your public stand, your leadership regarding the budget Ponzi scheme which some of your Senate colleagues were participating in? Why have you not used your platform, at least as a United States Senator, to expose the real story behind the recently passed Health Care Reform Bill, Cap and Trade, and other radical, Marxist programs which are being shoved down the throats of Americans? You may not have garnered enough votes to change the eventual outcome regarding some of this legislation, but at least WE THE PEOPLE would have felt like we had a leader who cared, who was watching out for us, just like the proverbial wing man who covered your back when flying missions over Viet Nam. Do you remember that concept?
Where is your leadership and voice regarding support of the Tea Party grassroots movement? How many Tea Party events have you attendedwhich consists of everyday folks who care deeply about their country. Many of these patriots are scared as hell, looking for leadership regarding our governments adherence to the U.S. Constitution. Tea Partiers are looking for legislators who represent their values. To the contrary, during one of your recent Town Hall Meetings, you were belligerent and condescending. Is that an example of the type of leadership you learned at the Naval Academy, or perhaps you have forgotten what it means to be an officer and a gentleman and, more important, a statesmanwhose primary purpose is to be a representative of the people. “
McCain was generally conservative in his first years in Congress. It was only after GW Bush defeated him in 2000 that he really went over to the Left. Nor, sadly, was Barry Goldwater a conservative in his later years.
As we used to say in middle school - “No duh.”
If he loses the primary look for him to go in as an Independent. It’s the cool RINO trend!
McAmnesty not conservative? Really?
INSANITY IS DOING THE SAME THING AND EXPECTING DIFFERENT RESULTS
MCLAME YOU HAD 4 TRIES
Just cannot get over how hard he is fighting to stay Arizona’s Senator, when he practically gave the Presidency to the Kenyan.
Many people only voted for McCain becauae of Sarah, she does not need him!
With apology to Dr. Seuss...
How McCain Stole Arizona
She stared at the old senator and said, “Mr. Maverick, why,
“Why are you risking our Freedom? WHY?”
But, you know, that old McCain was so smart and so slick
He thought up a lie, and he thought it up quick!
“Why, my sweet little voter,” the fake Conservative lied,
“There’s Arizona who won’t go to the other side. “So I’m taking it home to my workshop, in D.C.”
“I’ll fix it up there. Then I’ll bring it back here.”
