AZ-Sen. 2010: Arpaio-Hayworth Fundraiser a Preview of Future Campaigns? (anti-RINO alliance)
CQ Politics ^ | 2009-12-01 | Emily Cadei

Posted on 12/10/2009 4:21:34 AM PST by rabscuttle385

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R) -- two of conservatives' favorite anti-illegal immigration firebrands and potential 2010 candidates for statewide office in Arizona -- have teamed up to raise more than $100,000 as part of a holiday party being held Dec. 5.

A recent poll from Rasmussen Reports showed Arpaio leading all comers in the Arizona governor's race, while Hayworth is in a statistical tie with Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in a hypothetical primary match-up.

Both men have been coy about their intentions but any sort of electoral alliance between the two would strike fear into the hearts of centrist Republicans in the state.

Their holiday party, hosted by Arpaio at the home of GOP strategist and PR guru Jason Rose in Paradise Valley, Ariz., is raising money for Hayworth's Freedom in Truth Trust, dedicated to helping pay off the former congressman's legal fees. Hayworth lost his 2006 congressional race amidst questions about his ties to disgraced lobbyist Jack Ambramoff.

On his Web site, Hayworth said he still has "outstanding legal bills that total in the hundreds of thousands of dollars," due to the "false charge of corruption."

Rose told CQ Politics that Arpaio and Hayworth are "longtime friends and ideological soul mates on the issue of illegal immigration" and that Arpaio would support Hayworth should he decide to take on McCain.

If Arizonans don’t dump McCain this time they will have to face the prospect of McCain’s daughter running for the Senate six years from now.

Just remember one thing.....Karl Rove threw J.D. out of the White House at a political function, and told him to never return. This was because he went against Bush on illegal immigration, and amnesty with chain migration. Then Bush/Rove cut him off at re election time, and even spread lies about him to the media. If you want to know why I despise Bush and Rove, this is one of the reasons.

Anyone have any idea where Hayworth stands on polygamists FLDS? I don’t think McCain was ever willing to take them on....just wondering if Hayworth is or if every Arizona politician is too cowardly to take them on.

Good reminder of the depth of the rot that the GWB lead Rinos’ support of Amnesty portrayed. IMO this was the #1 reason for the loss of Congress in 2006 and the election of BO was only secured by the RINO Amnesty loving McCain being the nom. This history always gives be heartburn!

Got a link to that? I believe something like that would have been all over FR, and I don't remember it.

Then Bush/Rove cut him off at re election time, and even spread lies about him to the media.

How about a little proof on that one too?

In fact, Hayworth didn't want GWB's support.

Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-Ariz.) told radio show host Don Imus yesterday that he does not want the president's help: 'No, not at this time.'

I distinctly remember that Karl Rove threw one or the other out, Tancredo or Hayworth, no real difference since both are very anti-Amnesty R’s. It is real clear what the fatazz Rove, GWB, McCain were and are, Traitors one and all.

That idiot Rove managed to demote himself from "magnificent bastard" (as even I once referred to him as, as did many Freepers), to just a plain and simple "bastard".

After J.D. Hayworth lost his re-election bid in '06, in remarks before a conservative audience in Nevada, encouraged people to read Article IV Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution:

"The United States shall guarantee to every state in this union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."

By that standard, the Bush Administration failed to uphold the Constitution in that regard by any conceivable definition.

Traitors indeed!

Something tells me that the Arizona public has found "diversity" somewhat fatiguing. Perhaps it has something to do with crime, aggressive illegals outside Home Depot, high taxes, more crime... They think Sheriff Joe knows how to fix it, and cheap.

This could be popular! Methinks I'll buy some futures in bologna sandwiches and pink underwear.

Hayworth has gone over this ad nauseum on his radio show, and spoke about it during his re election run. Of course he didn’t want Bush help. He wouldn’t get it anyway. Listen to his show, or go look it up yourself. I’m not your “boy”

I know Tancredo got a major “diss” from the White House. I’m not sure he was launched, as it were. I agree that McLame,
Bush, and Rove are RINO scum.

Arpaio for Governor of Arizona? You can be assured that the DOJ will fabricate enough ‘evidence’ against him in their investigation that he will never be elected to office. This DOJ should be investigated for criminal activity. As soon as we retake the House and the Senate.

It won’t stick. Arpaio is a highly decorated former high level federal law enforcementofficial who is squeaky clean, and he also knows where the bones are buried. ;-)

We conservatives need to take back the Republican Party, and the best and only way to do this is to get personally involved in politics, starting at the grass roots level. People whine about RINOs in the Republican Party, and I agree. So attend the primary caucuses, become precinct leaders, get your candidates nominated, and then contribute all the money you can afford and all of the time you can afford to working for your candidates.

As sympathetic as I am to a third party, there is no realistic chance of that happening because when all of the people willing to attend protests sit down in a room to hammer out a platform they’ll have so many differences and so little experience in how to resolve them that they’ll fracture into a dozen cliques and never accomplish anything. Furthermore, even if that hurdle could be overcome, building the machinery for a third party from the precinct to national level and everything in between is a monumental task costing tens of millions of dollars.

It would be far, far better to take over the machinery of the Republican Party, and that really wouldn’t be all that difficult. All it would take is for several million people to get up off their butts, resolve to be committed to the task of changing things, and go to every party meeting that exists and outvote anyone else there.

I took the time to look it up and couldn't find a thing....even on his radio show site. Since you made the claim, show some proof or don't make it again. "I heard it somewhere" doesn't count.

I did find this on his site:

Yet something else occurred on that trip that is worthy of mention, because it demonstrates that our President is just as gracious as he is stubborn. As Air Force One was taking off from Yuma International Airport en route back to Andrews Air Force Base, the President placed a call to the Yancey residence in Yuma, to speak with my father-in-law.

After the two chatted for about ten minutes, the President hung up, and then said to me, “J.D., Mr. Yancey is a great guy! He’s a man who loves his country, and served her well as a Marine. We’re blessed as a nation to have so many men like him.”

In a subsequent note I wrote the President, I thanked him for making the call: “you not only made my father-in-law’s day by phoning him; you made his life.”

Last Tuesday, that earthly life ended.

William L. “Buck” Yancey, a retired Marine, died of lung cancer at the age of 77.

You know, it appears that everyone has completely forgotten that Arpaio endorsed ultra-liberal Janet Napolitano for governor of Arizona. He appeared on TV campaigning for her, etc. He helped Napolitano defeat conservative Republican and former AZ GOP Chairman Matt Salmon. Napolitano went on to be appointed by Obama as head of the Department of Homeland Security.
