McCain’s election year amnesia; Hayworth could be best bet to tackle Obama’s socialist regime
Sonoran News ^ | 2010-05-26 | John Hoeppner

Posted on 05/26/2010 6:36:33 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

“Senator Obama is a decent person and a person that you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States.” – John McCain – Oct. 10, 2008, Town Hall in Lakeville, Minn.

U.S. Senator John McCain must be confident Arizona voters have amnesia regarding his approval of Barack Obama’s presidential timber. Never mind that Barry Soetoro, aka, Barack Obama had a prolonged record of close associations involving socialists, communists, militants, racist clerics, labor unions, ACORN and the corrupt Chicago political machine reminiscent of Boss Tweed’s Tammany Hall. Forget how Senator McCain continues to confer the President a pass as he is “fundamentally changing America.”

The 2010 election is too important to give any politician a pass including Senator McCain and his progressive congressional record. If we fail to confront our elected leaders or ultimately replace them, our pending personal loss of liberty and the American dream turned nightmare is our responsibility. No doubt the Senator has served the country admirably. We should thank him, and then hold him accountable for obsessively reaching across the senatorial aisle only to compromise our liberty with a larger more omnipresent federal bureaucracy.

In my opinion, the majority of incumbent politicians no longer serve the people, they serve themselves. Many of these professional millionaire jet-setting politicians exempt themselves from the laws they pass and fill their pockets with perks and lifetime pensions. Today politicians have become our modern day version of European royalty. Do they even understand the hard-working people they are supposed to represent? At the recent local Tea Party rally with nearly 2,000 in attendance, John Shadegg, our retiring U.S. Congressman, told the audience he has “never been so concerned about the current state of America.” I agree.

• Illegal Immigration – Forget About It: Senator McCain claims in his advertising that he is “Arizona’s last line of defense.” What does that mean? If that “line” refers to the Arizona-Mexico border I am unconvinced. The Senator has told us that the Federal government has failed to secure the border. Doesn’t he understand that he “is” the Federal government? Remember the McCain-Kennedy Secure America and Orderly Immigration Act, followed by two Comprehensive Immigration Reform Acts? What is Comprehensive Immigration Reform anyway? Is it securing the borders from the annual invasion of one million illegals? Comprehensive is Orwellian newspeak for full amnesty. It is free U.S. citizenship for more than 11-million lawbreaking illegal immigrants.

• Your First Amendment Rights – Forget About It: McCain-Feingold passed in both Houses of Congress in 2002 and was signed into law by President Bush. Seven years in the making, it was said to be McCain's greatest legislative achievement. The Supreme Court stuck down this anti-Constitutional legislation.

• Your Second Amendment Rights – Forget About It: John McCain partnered with Americans for Gun Safety in an attempt to close down gun shows. The AGS, with McCain as its poster boy, used post 9/11 scare tactics to convince citizens that terrorists were purchasing large quantities of weapons at gun shows. The NRA’s magazine “America’s First Freedom” noted that “according to McCain and AGS, the only safe gun is one that is completely inaccessible to the owner in an emergency.”

• Cap And Trade Tax – Forget About It: McCain and Lieberman co-sponsored the 2003 Climate Stewardship Act that would have introduced a cap and trade system aimed at returning greenhouse gas emissions to 2000 levels. Four years later McCain and Lieberman along with co-sponsor Barack Obama reintroduced the Act two additional times only to fail again.

• Keating Five – Forget About It: McCain took $112,000 in political contributions from Charles Keating’s organization and used his private jets for trips to the Caribbean. McCain met twice with federal regulators regarding the government's investigation of Lincoln Savings and loan. Delaying the seizure of Lincoln Savings and Loan hurt taxpayers and seniors.

• Banks, Insurance Companies and Earmarks – Forget About It: McCain voted in favor of a taxpayer funded $700 billion bailout plan for big banks and insurance companies in 2008. McCain promised never to vote for earmarks. However, this bailout bill was laden with earmarks, including millions in tax breaks for manufacturers of arrows, wool producers and auto racetrack owners.

U.S. Senator John McCain may have been in the White House today if he attacked Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential race with the same ferocity he is using in his senatorial campaign ads against J.D. Hayworth. Unfortunately, McCain was defeated. Today, McCain has a $26 million campaign fund. J.D. Hayworth has less than $1 million. Yet in what may seem like a contest of inevitability for McCain’s re-election, the recent Rasmussen poll suggests otherwise. J.D. Hayworth is rapidly gaining on John McCain’s slim 5-point lead (42 – 47 percent). Unless Senator John McCain can clarify his progressive legislative actions, my primary vote goes to J.D. Hayworth for U.S. Senate.

That's why we should have term limits for the House and Senate too!

A Hayworth win would be big! Indeed, it would be the shot heard so loudly in Washington, D.C., their ears would be ringing until next year. It would indeed be proof of America rising up.

Thanks, good article.

Do you know the date of that poll? I think that it is not that recent. I have not seen many Hayworth/Mcain polls

Its funny that in the last few days there have been news reports of McCain challenging obama and standing up for border security and closing the border.

The sad part is, a large percentage of the voting public, has the memory of a piss ant. My apologize to all piss ants.

McCain has been one of the worst things to happen to the Republican party in ....well, in my memory.

I’m only in my early 30s, has there been any worse? I understand that Nixon sucked pretty bad.

McCain has come to personify slimy politicians. He will say or do whatever is necessary to get re-elected — and then turn like a viper on those who made the mistake of falling for his vile charade.

As to his presidential campaign, he surrounded himself with liberals and then ran not for the White House, but for a place in history as the man who graciously lost to the first black president. As this post demonstrates, he endorsed Obama in mid-campaign, and then went out and mealy-mouthed until election day.

I despise the man.

“I understand that Nixon sucked pretty bad.”

We’re about the same age. Nixon is the only person to ever be elected President and Vice President twice, so I vote Juan McHussein as the worst.

I always liked Hayworth when he was in congress, his floor speeches were tough and entertaining, he is an excellent public speaker. Hayworth always reminded me of Rush Limbaugh in both his appearance and speaking style.

Interesting that the author slams McCain (rightfully so) then in the last paragraph says it’s unfortunate McCain’s not in the white house. I guess he’s saying “lessor of two evils”.

Nixon was the first president to spend more than we took in. And he created the EPA but I’ll always say Ford was a joke. He was elected to congress because he was a good college football player. Always thought of him as a dufus.

Looks like the little maneuver at the White House over National Guard troops is “playing politics” for both McCain and Obama. McCain gets to sound like he got something for his State, and Obama allows him to get away with it in order to keep him in the Senate, knowing that Hayworth may be a tougher adversary for him.

McAmnesty is still talking about ‘comprehensive immigration reform’ code phrase for amnesty. “But only when the borders are secure”. Amnesty will allow in over 100 million third worlders who have been taught that we ‘stole their land’.

Actually, he was likely elected President three times....but the illegality in the Chicago voting gave the 1960 election to JFK — and Nixon did not AL GORE that election. He did have some honor and dignity - at least then... and it likely served as a nidus for his paranoia that later fostered Watergate.

John McCain is an inconsistent, irrational, unpredictable loose cannon.

The same man who ran such an aggressive campaign to secure the GOP nomination ran a Presidential campaign that eclipsed the mediocrity of Bush I and Bob Dole.

This loser deserves rejection by the Arizona GOP. His opponent is in every way a better candidate.

Like most RINOs, McCain runs in primaries like a conservative Republican, in general elections as a moderate Republican and performs like a liberal Republican in office.

It puzzles me why conservatives have so few newspapers of our own. I also don’t understand why we have allowed our schools and colleges to be taken over by leftists.

I attended Rutgers in New Jersey back in the 1960s. The leftists had taken over all the professorships or most of them anyway. I was at the University of Rhode Island in the early 1970s and it seemed that they hadn’t yet reached there in any numbers.
