Skip to comments.John McCain gets serious about primary (McCain fights J.D. harder than he fought Obama)
Posted on 05/19/2010 6:01:14 AM PDT by rabscuttle385
Arizona Republicans say GOP Sen. John McCains recent staff shake-up is an acknowledgment of the seriousness of his Aug. 24 primary challenge a contest in which he remains a clear but nervous front-runner.
While recent polls have shown McCain with a double-digit lead over former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, in an election year in which one Senate incumbent has already been taken down and several others are facing stiff primary opposition, the departure of two top campaign officials campaign manager Shiree Verdone and deputy manager Mike Hellon is being viewed as proof that McCain recognizes that he faces the most serious threat of his 30-year Senate career.

Dump the chump, Arizona.
What percentage does McCain leads by today? Does JD have a good chance to win from this Rino?
Proving nothing more than politburo members value their seat in the politburo than they do their country.
C’mon Arizonians. This guy is a fraud. Don’t buy his B.S. For another 6 years. He has done enough damage to the country and to the party. It’s time for him to join a quilting club at the local YMCA.
John’s ego will not allow him to give it up. In other words, he now cares for himself FIRST.
John, we care about you and we care about this nation as well. Retire. Let us care for the latter. Your job is done; so are you.
I hope the good people in Arizona see through this fraud McCain and all of the good-old-boy establishment that is working hard to put him back in office.
WE’RE TIRED OF POLITICS AS USUAL.
Good point, he is fighting harder in this primary than he did for the presidency.
Unfortunately, the dopes in Az will probably re nominate him. He and his buddy Graham will be free to roam the halls of cooperation for another 4-6 years.
Yeah, I’m biting my nails on this race. It’s too important, not just to Arizona - but to the rest of us as well. Anyone that cannot see that Juan HATES conservatives, and only pretends to be one at election time is an outright idiot.
BTW..GREAT homr page...
Its past time to flush this rat down the toilette, along with his buddy Spector.
The lengthy interview of Juan showed that once again he's the media's darling.
There's no doubt that he has one of the most earnest, sincere and slick lines of BS than any other political hack living. The AZ voters will swallow his orations sure as shooting. I have no doubt whatsoever.
The media will continue to give him all the air time in the world to expound in this campaign.....just like it did throughout his career ( except when he ran for president when they threw him under the bus in favor of Obama, hah ).
FYI..RCP average has McCain up by 13.5
Way-ll, JD is white.
Just dump the dang RINO
Easy to figure: If he loses this time, he’ll be unemployed. Last time, he still had a job after losing.
Well, if you want call being a Senator having a job, that is.
The “double digit” lead in BS Dem polls like Daily Kos and another one. The Dem media is trying to save McStain. This race is close.
I’d call it halls of collaboration. Collaborateurs.
I noticed that myself. FOX has been giving a somber, contrite McCain a HUGE amount of airtime. The only place I've seen JD is on O'Reilly and another show I can't remember. Sean Hannity is clearly kissing McCain's behind. The FOX channel gives lip service to Tea Party conservatives.
We need these so-called "conservatives" to stop talking out of both sides of their mouths. You cannot say you are for conservatism - and be endorsing John McCain at the same time. People need to recognize that.
Hannity is a Rino
Yeah, I can hardly stand to listen to him anymore. I had to turn Greta off last night because of McCain.
John McCain - Just. Go. Away.
McCAIN HAS been senator for many years and totally supported amnesty for all the illegals. He is a huge part of the border problem and has had all those years to do something about it, yet he did nothing and supported amnesty. What a fraud he is.
But Juan McCain is supposedly the teaparty candidate since Sarah endorsed him.
And that's part of the reason he lost.
LOLOL!!! One thing I’ll give McCain: he hasn’t had plastic surgery to try to look younger. Everything else is fake.
(McCain fights J.D. harder than he fought Obama) that’s because he knew he wasn’t going to win the presidency.
Oh man, that’s priceless.
What I hate most is Fox News has this bum on almost every night.
J.D. should show clips of McCain fumbling during the debates, not knowing where he was, needing Lieberman to provide him answers, lying about what he said - even though he was caught on tape, his wife and daughter posing with duct tape across the mouth, him embracing his former captors, him yelling at families of MIA's. The fact that he betrayed his wife when she was ill and married the mistress I suppose is now considered old stuff and not to be mentioned - except for Conservatives.
Give the man a scooper and a broom so he can clean up after the election.
Nothing like the inescapable evidence of a visual aid of McPain with "his friend" Dead Kennedy. J.D. should have this pic on his campaign site.
the country is counting on you AZ!
BTW, has J.D. come out unequivocally in support of Arizona's new law?
Or time for him to start working up to an American Legion or VFW position in his home town.
In 2008 McCain was the only top tier candidate of either party who did not win his/her home state with 50% or more of the vote. The people of AZ are on to McCain. He is very vulnerable. Rasmussen has McCain up by 5 and Charile Cook rates the race as a toss-up. The primary is in August so there is a long way to go. McCain is doing his best to avoid debating Hayworth. He can not do it forever.
McCain was recently on Sean Hannity’s show. Why does Hannity give so much publicity to someone who viscerally hates everything in which he believes?
I don't trust him, and I find it strange to hear that he is seriously campaigning -- as it was obvious that he wasn't interested in the presidency.
WHY is this RICH man who married a Massive Fortune so interested in returning to D.C.?????
What an odd ball.
Anyone else notice that his cute little daughter Meggans hasn't been heard from in MONTHS?
When is her next appearance on The View??
Nothing new. He has always fought conservatives harder than liberals.
McCain...just go away...
I’m an Arizona voter. They tricked me in ‘08 and I promised then; NO MORE RINOS NOT NOW AND NOT EVER. Along with the ‘Rats they have wrecked this country.
The latest Tiger Woods story is over ----------> there. Not that McCain is any cleaner in that regard.
“McCain was recently on Sean Hannitys show. Why does Hannity give so much publicity to someone who viscerally hates everything in which he believes?”
Because Vannity is not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
I just donated again to JD.
Let the recent victories inspire everyone to DUMP RINOS!
Is there a story I missed? The one I heard was far, far worse. His beauty pageant wife had an auto accident while he was a POW and faithfully awaiting his return. She was disfigured. When McCain got released and returned he saw what his wife looked like and dumped her.
There are worse things in my book than having mistresses and a dump under those circumstances is certainly one of them.
That looks like Megan about 100 pounds ago.
