The McCain Mutiny: A maverick fights for his political life—and his soul
Newsweek ^ | 2010-04-03 | David Margolick

Posted on 04/03/2010 3:58:32 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

Late last month, at a dusty fairground outside Tucson, John McCain stood behind the person who is, at least for the next few years, surely his most important legacy to American politics. And speaking to the adoring mob, Sarah Palin stood behind John McCain, repaying his inestimable gift to her in the most compelling possible fashion: by helping him to survive.

(snip)

Many, many years ago she'd competed in a beauty pageant, Palin declared, as women howled (and a few men growled) approvingly. McCain would surely win the talent and debate portions of any such contest, she went on, but no way would the Washington elite and "pundints" and "lame-stream media" ever crown him "Miss Congeniality"! "He's never been a company man, he's never been one to just 'go with the flow,'?" she crowed.

(snip)

...Palin had apparently missed the real message this electoral season in Arizona: for his three decades in Congress, McCain hadn't gone with the flow enough, at least not enough to satisfy many Arizona Republicans. Why else would his rival, former congressman J.D. Hayworth, be billing himself as "the consistent conservative"? Many of the GOP's most faithful, the kind who vote in primaries despite 115-degree heat, tired long ago of McCain the Maverick, the man who had crossed the aisle to work with Democrats on issues like immigration reform, global warming, and restricting campaign contributions. "Maverick" is a mantle McCain no longer claims; in fact, he now denies he ever was one. "I never considered myself a maverick," he told me. "I consider myself a person who serves the people of Arizona to the best of his abilities." Yet here was Palin, urging her fans four times in 15 minutes to send McCain the Maverick back to Washington.

For me, the main question is whether or not I can trust McCain to be a Conservative and to fight for Conservative positions. Based upon his history in the senate, I have no faith in him. Anyone that votes for McCain believing that he will promote Conservative views is delusional.

There is also an interesting McCain slideshow at the Newsweek site. Just a couple:

Stumping in New Orleans in June, McCain continued to distance himself from the Bush administration, claiming he ‘supported every investigation’ into the government’s role regarding the hurricane.

http://photo.newsweek.com/2008/2/photos-a-mavericks-path.slide3.html

McCain — pictured in his first year at the Naval Academy — graduated in 1958. While there, he cultivated a reputation for rebellion, earning over 100 demerits and the nickname ‘McNasty.’

What I find interesting about the McCainiacs on FR is their constant false attack on J.D. Hayworth about ‘Indian money’.

McCain headed the Indian Senate affairs, and penned CFR. He helped Obama SO much. He excluded Indian tribes from giving amounts like everyone else, and then Obama cleaned up on the Indian $$$.

In fact, I can’t think of one piece of McCain legislation that wasn’t hand in hand with the democrats or that ever did one ounce of good for America. Can you?

[snip] Many of the tribes that have given the most to help Sen. Obama are rich with gambling revenue. They’ve used a loophole in campaign-finance law that allows one tribe to donate more than $200,000, unlike corporations or trade groups, which can’t give any money.

The Seneca Nation of New York, which operates casinos upstate, gave $213,000 to Sen. Obama’s committees, according to campaign-finance data compiled by CQ MoneyLine. Three other tribes have each given more than $100,000 to his campaign or to party coffers he is using to get out the vote: the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians and two California tribes, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and the Viejas Band.

The Indian vote, which has traditionally been overwhelmingly Democratic, could be pivotal in a number of swing states, notably New Mexico.[snip]

The ultimate question, is that it’s illogical for McCain to run for another Senate term. He is in his mid-seventies. He has twice lost two presidential races. At a time when the electorate wants someone to fight the Obama agenda, he was to work with it in a “bipartisanship” fashion. McCain needs to go.

Sent 50 to JD a few weeks ago. Send what you can if you care too. What ever you can spare. Past time to send that back stabbing senator home. I seem to recall McCain denigrating conservatives during his presidential campaign. And I use the “campaign” term loosely since all he did was stroll around and defend Obama.

Newsweak is full of lies and incorrect information.
That’s his senior photo in the Lucky Bag and he wasn’t called McNasty. John was a popular goof-off.

Newsweak is also lying when it claims that JD “Hayworth has made unforced errors of his own, like getting into bed with the birthers.”

Palin is right. McAmnesty doesn’t go with the Conservative flow. Instead he votes with the socialists most of the time and Palin supports him.

First she concurs with his amnesty policy then helps him win and we all suffer for having this treacherous RINO back in the senate helping Gramnesty with cap and trade and amnesty.

Another thread of bad McCain and anyone who comes with in 50 miles of him must be bad also.

These threads by the Snotzis are almost sad.
The PaulBot Snotzis have no life and must obey their cult leader, go to Conservative
forums and spread the anti war propaganda of L Ron Paul
and Divide Republicans.

Tough, won’t work.

“Newsweak is full of lies and incorrect information.

They definitely put a spin on things.

But the ‘McNasty’ nickname is well known. This is a pro McCain source.

• Though not a bully, McCain was a rebel in school and earned the nickname “McNasty” from classmates.

• Known for his quick temper, Washingtonian magazine once dubbed McCain “Senator Hothead.” In 2004, the magazine also called McCain the “worst follower” in the Senate, as well as being the biggest “show horse” and having “gutsiest” personality.

http://www.azcentral.com/news/specials/mccain/articles/mccaintrivia-CR.html

Now this is kind of interesting. Same source. I wonder what his liberal friends think of this?

McCain is a member of the Alfalfa Club, an exclusive Washington, D.C. club for the rich and powerful, founded in 1913. Its sole purpose is to hold an annual banquet each January to honor the birthday of General Robert E. Lee. There are approximately 200 members.

McCain is a Democrat underming the GOP at every turnn. You have a marxist usurper and a criminal Congress because of McCain-Feingold which was a clear violations of the First Amendment.

“The Abramoff scandal is nonsense too. McCainiacs are trying to put it on JD, but he was cleared of all charges.”

OH, yes.

McCain Received $100,000 From Firm Of Abramoff Notoriety

[snip]A review of campaign finance filings shows that the Arizona Republican has accepted more than $100,000 in donations from employees of Greenberg Traurig, the very firm where Abramoff once reigned.

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/news/2440173/posts?page=70#70

After Abramoff pleaded guilty to federal crimes, several tribes asked lawmakers to return donations. But Choctaw Chief Philip Martin wrote to at least one lawmaker, Rep. J.D. Hayworth, R-Ariz., and told him he could keep tribal donations. “The Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians has voluntarily contributed to political campaigns and causes along the ideological spectrum for more than a decade,” Martin said in his Dec. 21 letter. “Our decisions on political contributions were made by us. They were not coerced or controlled by our former lobbyist, Mr. Jack Abramoff, with whom we have severed all our ties.”

Paul Ryan
Rick Santorum - not a bad guy
Steve King, Pence, Palin (if she disowns McCain) and a whole bunch I am forgetting

Maybes:
Mitch Daniels, John Thune

I would love to see a youthful and tough Ryan going after the Kenyan. The best stuff in a LONG time was Ryan tearing into Obama during the healthcare thing.

If you think McCain isn’t detested by a large portion of conservatives who have nothing and want nothing to do with Ron Paul, you’re quite mistaken.

McCain has stabbed conservatives in the back for a decade or more now....Ron Paul has nothing to do with it.

Good one. This man is a part of the hidden treachery of getalong politics that keeps the right from defending the constitution through a political party. This video highlights it well. The single greatest threat we now face is granting of amnesty to millions of illegals forming a state dependent class and voting block that will keep the left in power forever. Reagans great sin was amnesty for a few million which has brought us 10’s of millions illegals now and a new amnesty will bring even more.

These open border for the cheap labor and democrat votes people in the name of compassion must be stopped now and that, for conservatives, means John McCain and those that support or enable him.

This thread isn’t about Frantzie or any other freeper. It’s about McCain. If you support McCain, say so. At least Palin had the guts to say what she means in supporting him. If you don’t, why are some of you constantly after anyone who doesn’t?

Focus. Changing the subject won’t get McCain or Palin off the hook.

You might want to check who some on your list supported.

BTW, Paul Ryan is the fist person Sarah Palin mentioned as
a person she respects. Palin also backs Bachmann.
Chris Cristie is doing great for New Jersey. HE is
best where he is at.

I hope you don’t read the Bible. Most who wrote it were not
perfect. Some even chucked rocks at Christians.
Some even contradicted each other.
IF you are looking for perfect, Christ ain’t on the ballot

Well I guess that means the whole GOP, because all of them lined up behind McCain.

So whould you have said the same thing about Ronald Reagan?

Would your approach have been the same?

Remember, he was the first to not only propose Amnesty, but to get it passed.

He never claimed to be a maverick? That was his entire presidential campaign strategy! He’s really going all out to re-invent himself. This guys reputation for being a straight-shooter is long, long behind him even amongst his former fans in the lib media. I have no doubt he’ll win re-election, but at some point he has to ask himself if maintaining even a shred of integrity might be a fun idea.

It will come to a shock to some when they find out, McCain isn’t running for President in 2012.

The PaulBots who post as if he is or post bashing Palin via McCain are disingenuous to say the least.

The main thing the PaulBots hate about McCain is his support for the war against the IslamOfascists since
the PaulBots believe we are the cause of the war.

You'd take McConnell or Boehner over Sarah?

You're kidding, right?

McConnell is not much better than McCain, and Boehner is weak on several issues.

Coburn maybe, DeMint, absolutely, but your other two picks are absolute losers when it comes to be POTUS material.

And what posts do you have to support your statement that either Ansel12 or SoCalPol have ever supported McCain?

None.

Well she's joining a whole bunch of faux conservatives then, including JD Hayworth:

Hunter endorsed Huckabee
Tancredo endorsed Romney
DeMint endorsed Romney
Pawlenty endorsed McCain
Thompson endorsed McCain
Newt endorsed Scozzafava
Santorum endorsed Specter
Rubio endorsed Huckabee
Santorum endorsed Romney
Scott Brown endorsed Rommey
Ann Coulter endorsed Romney
Mark Levin endorsed Romney
Dick Cheney endorsed McCain
Thune endorsed McCain
Jindahl endorsed McCain
Huckabee endorsed McCain
Bachmann endorsed McCain/Palin
Ron Paul endorsed Chuck Baldwin
Ron Paul endorsed ralph Nader and Cynthia McKinney

Paul Ryan endorsed McCain for President
Rick Perry (Governor-Texas) endorsed Rudy Guiliani
Peter King endorsed Guliani
GWB endorsed Spector
Santorum endorsed Spector
DeMint endorsed Graham
JD Haworth endorsed McCain
John Thune endorsed McCain
Sheriff Joe Arpaio endorsed Romney
Coburn endorsed McCain

Of course JD gets it:

BLITZER: You know that Sarah Palin who was his running mate says she's going to support John McCain and try to get him that nomination instead of you. How do you feel about that?

HAYWORTH: Well, I think we all understand the impulse of gratitude in politics and obviously Senator McCain, one of the decisions I applaud him for was putting Sarah Palin on the ticket. I think it gave great excitement to the Republican base and I can understand why she's coming here. But what's interesting, Wolf, in the social media, as I understand it, there's a new page on Facebook, Sarah Palin fans for JD but in the final analysis, it's not Sarah Palin from Alaska, It's Sarah Boyd in Scottsdale and others like her. Arizonans will decide who will be the next senator from this great state.And there's this gem from JD:

VIDEO:"I look forward to having Mrs. Palin's support following the primary on August 24th."

More Saul Alinsky tactics using insults and baseless accusations in the absence of refuting the fact Palin is supporting McAmnesty over the Conservative candidate.
