AZ-Sen. 2010: Brown answers McCain’s call for help (as McCainiac says J.D. a "buffoon")
The Boston Globe ^ | 2010-03-05 | Matt Viser

Posted on 03/04/2010 10:34:56 PM PST by rabscuttle385

TUCSON - J.D. Hayworth, a former congressman and conservative AM radio host, nearly lost his voice this week delivering fiery attacks on John McCain, the Republican 2008 presidential nominee whom Hayworth accuses of betraying his party and getting too cozy with East Coast liberals. The four-term senator, says Hayworth, "is not the John McCain we knew."

Hayworth’s assault from the right in a GOP primary has forced McCain to launch an early, aggressive defense of his seat. And today, McCain will attempt to enhance his conservative bona fides by hosting the party’s new darling, US Senator Scott Brown of Massachusetts, on an Arizona campaign swing.

(snip)

While Brown could help traditional conservatives rally around McCain, he also risks antagonizing Tea Party voters around the country who poured money into his surprise Massachusetts election and are fed up with the status quo.

(snip)

Hayworth is providing McCain with the strongest primary challenge since he first won the seat in 1986, but McCain had $5 million in his campaign account and another $22 million he may be able to use from his presidential campaign, according to year-end campaign finance reports. Hayworth, who formally launched his campaign less than three weeks ago, has not yet had to file a campaign finance report, but is trying to raise $1 million this month.

“It’s a strange time and there’s a lot of anti-incumbent feeling across the country. Anyone has to take every race seriously. John is certainly doing that, and, consequently, I think he’ll be fine," said Grant Woods, former Arizona attorney general, who was McCain’s first chief of staff and remains close to the senator. “His other big advantage is Hayworth is a buffoon in my opinion."

Brown has a big base of FR fanbois. I was ripped by most of them for calling him a RINO when he was elected. They were mentioning him as a GOP presidential candidate.

McCain should NOT be permitted to use the $22 million left over from 2008. Frankly, why the hell does he have ANY $ left over? Imagine if he ran $22 million in ads targeting Rev. Wright! Nope, he went down without a fight, like the coward he is.

Many people have won elections when the other candidate outspent them and out "endorsed" them. Gov. Rick Perry just won a 3-way race in Texas without a run-off. George W. Bush and Dick Cheney both endorsed Kay Bailey Hutchison, the loser.

People are just mad as heck and they'll vote for whomever they choose to vote for.

Now that would be a great campaign - Republican voters want their ‘08 donations back from McCain. Wonder if JD could use that strategy in an ad.

I can only say: “I told you so”... Face Book was filled with short-sighted ideologues, whooping it up over Scott Brown, and pouring hot pitch upon any who took a principled stand against him, based upon what Brown stated on his web page.

Now you all watch what we get in 2012... That jackass, Michael Steel, will attempt to foist a “McCain*Brown” ticket upon us... I will not stand for this RINO betrayal any longer.

The Scorpion and the Frog

One day, a scorpion looked around at the mountain where he lived and decided that he wanted a change. So he set out on a journey through the forests and hills. He climbed over rocks and under vines and kept going until he reached a river.

The river was wide and swift, and the scorpion stopped to reconsider the situation. He couldn’t see any way across. So he ran upriver and then checked downriver, all the while thinking that he might have to turn back.

Suddenly, he saw a frog sitting in the rushes by the bank of the stream on the other side of the river. He decided to ask the frog for help getting across the stream.

“Hellooo Mr. Frog!” called the scorpion across the water, “Would you be so kind as to give me a ride on your back across the river?”

“Well now, Mr. Scorpion! How do I know that if I try to help you, you wont try to kill me?” asked the frog hesitantly.

“Because,” the scorpion replied, “If I try to kill you, then I would die too, for you see I cannot swim!”

Now this seemed to make sense to the frog. But he asked. “What about when I get close to the bank? You could still try to kill me and get back to the shore!”

“This is true,” agreed the scorpion, “But then I wouldn’t be able to get to the other side of the river!”

“Alright then...how do I know you wont just wait till we get to the other side and THEN kill me?” said the frog.

“Ahh...,” crooned the scorpion, “Because you see, once you’ve taken me to the other side of this river, I will be so grateful for your help, that it would hardly be fair to reward you with death, now would it?!”

So the frog agreed to take the scorpion across the river. He swam over to the bank and settled himself near the mud to pick up his passenger. The scorpion crawled onto the frog’s back, his sharp claws prickling into the frog’s soft hide, and the frog slid into the river. The muddy water swirled around them, but the frog stayed near the surface so the scorpion would not drown. He kicked strongly through the first half of the stream, his flippers paddling wildly against the current.

Halfway across the river, the frog suddenly felt a sharp sting in his back and, out of the corner of his eye, saw the scorpion remove his stinger from the frog’s back. A deadening numbness began to creep into his limbs.

“You fool!” croaked the frog, “Now we shall both die! Why on earth did you do that?”

The scorpion shrugged, and did a little jig on the drownings frog’s back.

“I could not help myself. It is my nature.”

Then they both sank into the muddy waters of the swiftly flowing river.

Self destruction - “Its my Nature”, said the Scorpion...

Yeah, unless you've got a yacht docked on Long Island Sound somewhere, or a permanent dinner invitation from the Kennedys, or you're on warm personal relations with John "Winter Soldier"/Traitor Skerry, you're just a scalawag, hooligan, and buffoon.

Well he “hot started” his jet to eff with the pilot behind him, set off ordinance, and damn near sank the carrier in the subsequent fire. If his daddy hadn’t been running the Navy, he’d have been court marshalled. He was assigned to a different carrier because his fellow pilots were gonna kill him.

If you’re referring to Scott Brown, my answer is “Not so much.” For McCain, the answer is different - he’s been a disappointment since before the first time he ran for office in Arizona.

McCain defends Kerry on defense Arizona senator says GOP rhetoric ‘not helpful’

March. 18, 2004

WASHINGTON - Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said Thursday he did not believe Democratic candidate John Kerry, a friend and Senate colleague, was weak on defense or would compromise national security if elected president.

“This kind of rhetoric, I think, is not helpful in educating and helping the American people make a choice,” McCain said on “The Early Show” on CBS. “You know, it’s the most bitter and partisan campaign that I’ve ever observed. I think it’s because both parties are going to their bases rather than going to the middle. I regret it.”[snip]

““Grant Woods, former Arizona attorney general, who was McCain’s first chief of staff and remains close to the senator. “His other big advantage is Hayworth is a buffoon in my opinion.””

This Grant Woods guy is a real piece of work! He’s a longtime McCain lackey and his current business is being financed by Cindy McCain! And like his old boss, McCain, Woods also has thought of switching to the democrat party.

ARIZONA:Woods may switch from GOP to Dems
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-gop/775716/posts

“”It’s the party of Lincoln,” Woods said. “But I don’t know that Lincoln would recognize it. I’m trying to remember why I became a Republican in the first place.......As for Woods’ political ambitions, he said he’s interested in running for the U.S. Senate, but only if Sen. John McCain, his political mentor, retires in 2004.

“Any opportunities I’ve had in politics have been because of him,” Woods said”

http://aconstantineblacklist.blogspot.com/2009/02/podcasting-arizona-attorney-general.html

“Woods, of course, is famously well-connected. Not only was he elected attorney general back in the 90s, but he’s since represented all sorts of interesting people in his private practice, from Sonia Falcone, socialite and wife of an alleged international arms dealer, to (for a time) disgraced then-Congressman Rick Renzi.

So we’re not the least bit surprised that Woods’ Podcast show boasts guests ranging from Charles Barkley to John McCain. Nor were we surprised to see that the Web site is currently sponsored by Budweiser — Cindy McCain, of course, being the owner of the area’s biggest Bud distributorship.”

Juan Pedro McCain threw the election with Democrat Steve Schmidt running his campaign and his pro-gay marriage/sodomy wife and daughter.

He should have used that $22 million to try to win. He held it back so he could dole it out to fellow RINOs to hold their seats. McCain is a real POS and a liar.

Another shady association of McCain is former AZ governor Fife Symington, who was convicted of bank fraud and pardoned by Bill Clinton in 2001. And still making big McCain contributions...

McCain Victory 2008 - $5,000 on 5/31/2008
John McCain 2008 - $4,600 on 6/30/2007

In 2006, McCain orchestrated a move (aided by Sen. Jon Kyl, Congressmen John Shadegg, Rick Renzi and Jeff Flake to get rid of conservatives running for office in Maricopa Cty, putting Symington against the party chair, Haney.

http://www.muckety.com/John-Fife-Symington-III/102264.muckety

“Grassroots Arizona spent more than $16,000 in an effort to oust Haney and the conservatives controlling District 11, McCain’s home district. The move failed miserably and Haney was re-elected handily last week — over former Gov. Fife Symington.

Well, the surviving co-prisoners say otherwise.

I think what he’s done politically and legislatively is bad enough to get rid of him without using rumors. If there’s some definitive evidence of him doing throwing his co-prisoners under the bus, though, I’d be interested to see it.
