AZ-Sen. 2010: McCain 2.0 now on sale (Tancredo slams McCain as "impostor")
World Net Daily ^ | 2010-04-24 | Tom Tancredo

Posted on 04/24/2010 11:30:43 AM PDT by rabscuttle385

The real John McCain has been kidnapped and an impostor is running against J. D. Hayworth in the Arizona U.S. Senate primary.

It does sound far-fetched, but stranger things have happened in American politics. It's actually quite clever when you think about it.

John McCain realized quite early that he could not win re-election to the Senate if he campaigned on his actual record – that is, if he campaigned as who he is. So, he arranged to be kidnapped and secluded in a five-star resort in Fiji while a well-groomed look-alike, McCain 2.0, campaigns in his place.

McCain 2.0 is campaigning as a strong, unapologetic Reagan conservative.

(snip)

The mainstream media are not blind; they realize this is not the real John McCain. But they are playing along with the charade. It's the least they can do to help their favorite "maverick" deal with his "lunatic right-wing base."

Yet a funny thing happened on the way to the scripted victory dance. Despite a fawning press and a huge money advantage, the most recent Rasmussen Poll shows former Rep. J. D. Hayworth is now only 5 points behind McCain 2.0. Conservative activists in Arizona are not following the script.

I confess, I have my doubts that the impostor McCain 2.0 can keep up the real McCain hidden for 14 more weeks.

(snip)

But 2010 is no ordinary election year. The natives are restless, and conservatives in Arizona are asking hard questions and demanding McCain debate Hayworth face-to-face. Can the McCain impostor stay on message and win over skeptical conservatives in debates and town-hall meetings?

McCain said he voted for the Troubled Asset Relief Program because he was told the money would go toward helping the housing market, but instead it went to a Wall Street bailout.
And he lied, or was too dense to understand the meetings he, Obama and Paulson had on TARP....he’s admitting to voting on something he didn’t read...at best.

[snip] Over the last year, John McCain supported everything that the grass-roots Tea Party movement has stood against:
*The $700 billion all-purpose, earmark-stuffed TARP bailout;
*The $25 billion auto bailout;
*The $300 billion mortgage entitlement bailout; and *The first $85 billion AIG bailout.
When push came to shove, McCain and his economic advisers (including his hand-picked California GOP Senate candidate, Carly Fiorina) caved to the Chicken Little chaos in Washington every time and joined hands with Barack Obama.
Reasonable people may not assert that John McCain is an unsurpassed paragon of “fiscal responsibility.”

It is a strange marriage indeed when tea-party leaders fall in line with Washington insiders to support a man who more than any other Republican embodies all the compromises and sellouts that have weakened the Republican Party since the end of the Reagan presidency. John McCain has not only been on the wrong side of nearly every important domestic policy battle over the past decade, he has often been the leader of those efforts. Bush's "compassionate conservatism" would have been DOA without "mavericks" like McCain.
It's not just Sarah Palin. There are many other very good people who have decided to accept the biggest lie of the 21st Century: John McCain's promise to be good.

They are insane, all of them.

I'd sooner believe Obama when he tells me that I'm going to end up loving MengeleCare than I would believe McCain promising that from now on he's going to be a conservative.

Why are so many otherwise good people falling for the most stupendous lie of the millenium?

Sarah Palin, shame on you. And shame on all the rest of you, too.

The one thing McCain and 0bama have in common is the fact that they are both shameless liars, and will lie about anything if it stands to obtain some sort of political advantage for them. I reiterate: they are both LIARS.

Why are so many otherwise good people falling for the most stupendous lie of the millenium? Sarah Palin, shame on you. And shame on all the rest of you, too.

There is actually a good explanation for McCain's absurd lies and assurances that he's going to be a good conservative from now on, and it goes back to his captivity by the Communists in North Vietnam, i.e., by McCain's own admission, he was 'broken' by torture while he was a POW in Hanoi. I don't hold that against him. But I do consider him to be damaged psychological goods and his word cannot be trusted anymore than the words of the now burning Ho Chi Minh could be trusted. McCain TOLD US HE WAS BROKEN by torture, he learned, under the most horrific conditions imaginable, that if he said what he was told to say, that he could avoid pain, discomfort, disgrace (maybe) and death.

He's still applying that lesson today, as he tries to avoid his own political death.

McCain is a liar. He is unstable. He has to go.

I have often wondered whether his itch to appease the neo Communist Democrats comes from a reflex of appeasing the Commies in NVA to avoid more pain.

I think there is a psychological component for him to cross the aisle to the neo Communist Democrats and it is quite a fault.

When McCain is re-elected, with the help of his good friend Sarah Palin (active and over-the-top help, not just pro-forma I-owe-you-this help) -- and unfortunately he probably will be re-elected -- he will spend his last term in office -- a long, long, long, long six year term -- getting even with the only real enemies he's ever faced down in America: the Conservatives.

He hates the Conservatives more than he hates any single political group in this country. He certainly doesn't hate liberals. He's spent his career "reaching across the aisle to them". He hates those who criticize him.

And now he's got his chance. Six years, no more worries about re-election, elder-statesman status no matter who is President... and he's going to stick it to us every way he can.

This will be his legacy. Getting even with us.

And Sarah Palin is aiding a abetting that. And so are a lot of other good people.

It's unconscionable.

Darn right “The natives are restless”.

They are very restless where I live.

Talked today to a lady who is a life long Democrat. She has volunteered time and effort for canvassing. She donated money all of her adult life to the Dems.

She hates NObama with a passion. She supported him before the election, and now is totally feeling like she has been stabbed in the back.

McCain is reviled by conservatives. Once, he was adored by moderates and independents.

As the amnesty and illegal immigration issue has come to the fore in Arizona, his perfidy and outright lying on these issues has become more broadly known -- and the moderates and independents are starting to drift away.

A long-time incumbent who can't reach 50% in the polls at this stage is historically "in trouble". Especially, if he has the full support of the media -- who absolutely detest J.D. Hayworth.

McCain still has to be viewed as the favorite. But a Hayworth victory is clearly conceivable.

Why the sudden about face. Oh, yeah...now he’s got a conservative running against him.
