I would vote for “undistinguished” J.D. before I’d vote for “idiotic turncoat” McCain.

RE :”Armey stopped short of outright endorsing McCain over Hayworth..” (from article)

I would really be discouraged if he did that.

And, if he so unimpressive, why is McCain running non-stop radio ads bashing J.D. ?

Juan is running scared as well he should be. Let's hope my fellow citizens in AZ put this POS out to pasture.

Mark my words:

Hayworth will lose the GOP primary against McCain but will still run in the General Election as an independent in order to elect a Democrat to the seat.

It’s crap like this that caused Armey’s RINO son to NOT win his old man’s seat in Congress from Dallas.

A number of years ago, those of us who supported the National Retail Sales Tax (the original NRST as moved to the public arena by the old CATS organization and is now called the “Fair Tax”), sponsored a series of debates in several cities around the nation. One was held in Atlanta at the Cobb Civic Center. Speaking for the NRST was then-Rep. Billy Tauzin, against — and for HIS flat-rate INCOME TAX — was Dick Armey.

Billy tore Armey to shreds during the debate portion of the program and when the Q&A began, the line at the microphone formed quickly and Armey was peppered with a number of questions, most of which related to his desire to retain a Marxist tax on incomes (which he had trouble answering).

I was in the back of the large crowded room when one particularly pointed question was posed to Armey. Next to me were Armey’s young aide who had accompanied him to Atlanta and a guy who was clearly an Armey supporter. As the questioner concluded his question, the Armey supporter leaned over and remarked to Armey’s aide that “That was a pretty stupid question.” The aide turned to the guy and replied “If it was such a stupid question, WHY ARE WE GETTING OUR ASS KICKED?”

As I recall, Armey withdrew from the final debates.

As I listened to her on Larry “Cadaver” King, I kept thinking about something about which Boortz frequently reminds his male audience: “At some point, you’ll have to try to have a conversation with her.” I also kept thinking that she HAS to be from California until I remembered that Arizona also has valleys.

you got that backwards. mccain will lose in the primary and run in the GE as an independant to get a democrat elected.

THAT is the more likely outcome, because McStain is a villainous and malevolent piece of RINO-sh*t that would PREFER that his seat go to a 'Rat, than to see a principled TRUE conservative like J.D. Hayworth go to the Senate to start repairing the damage McCain has done.

Only a blithering idiot or a RINO would vote for McCain when a conservative alternative is available. In November 2008, there was no choice between the Communist thug running as a 'Rat, and the senile RINO the GOP foisted upon us, and even then McCain all but threw the election for his progressive little buddy 0bama.

But THIS YEAR Arizona has a choice, and I believe the people of that fine State have already come to their senses and will show McStain the door, and McStain knows this, that's why he was running ads attacking Hayworth BEFORE HAYWORTH EVEN ANNOUNCED HIS CANDIDACY!

McCain is running scared, and well he should.

Dick Armey and his FreedomWorks organization, the one that is very involved with the Tea Parties, are PRO-AMNESTY....J.D. is NOT. Armey is NOT going to support any one who is pro- border enforcement/anti-amnesty. FreedomWorks has its OWN agenda and IMO...any agenda supporting any kind of amnesty is a PROGRESSIVE agenda.

Yes, Arizona has a choice, and I am absolutely elated. I hoped and hoped for J.D. to run == and he is. I too believe that McCain would allow a democrat to win as he has allowed a democrat to win the presidency. By so doing, however, McCain allowed a fomidable conservative movement to emerge, that will bring America back to its founding principles. As I always said, God loves America.

One can always depend on democrats to be democrats, but RINOs cannot be depended upon to be republicans.

No matter what type of record Hayworth has, he needs to run

McCain simply has to go.

His time is up, he needs to rest on his laurels and be put out to pasture. Pretend to be a king maker and in general pass out worthless endorsements to fellow RINO's

Dick probably has a bit of loyalty to McCain, but since he has not endorsed him, he is sending a message to McCain.

Sarah is standing on the wrong side of this race, for whatever reason. McCain is part of the problem, not part of the solution. He needs to go. He represents everything that is wrong with the leadership of the GOP at this point. He still wants to "get along" with the enemies of the US that reside on the other side of the aisle.

McCain is no conservative, and he needs to be removed from the senate, regardless of who supports him.

Dick Armey had a ‘undistinguished’ House career. He doesn’t speak for people of the Tea Party movement. The same with Steve Forbes. No more McCain. Hayworth actually did do stuff for the conservative movement compared to Juan McCain.

Armey is a loose cannon. He flits around the outskirts of politics like a tse-tse fly at a picnic seeking whom he can infect while picking up crumbs for his own benefit and publicity.

He's one of those toads that we all wish would JUST SHUT UP AND GO AWAY.

(....."toad" is my word for the day. On another thread I just used the appellation to describe Boortz, Schrummmmmm and O'Reilly).

None of the stuff she said is a reason to vote for him over a better candidate, and as you probably know, her endorsement of McCain is endangering her credibility with conservatives nationwide. Personally I don’t hold it against her, as she probably feels she needs to do it out of loyalty. But if she really wanted to convince someone with her endorsement, she would have listed advantages McCain has that Hayworth or another challenger doesn’t have. She didn’t do that, either because she chooses not to, or because there are no such advantages to tout.

Great response, meyer. Mark, I can’t believe it. Primaries are the the only way to keep the GOP from shattering into a dozen ‘third’ parties. We need that outlet. It’s hard as heck to take out an incumbent in the primary, especially after McCainiac had tampered with free speech rights and his ‘incumbent protection’ legislation.

McCainiac was more worried about cheap labor than terror threats on our cities [wide open border]. He’s more concerned about a picky-u problem than the economic consequences a dirty nuke would cause.

There is another qulaity where J.D. Hayworth is lacking. That is what is called likability. You as an ideologue probably could care less about a candidates’s likability. But I do, and I find his personality unattractive.

Good luck in your quest.
