Same here. I get that crap in the mail almost every day from the “Friends of John McCain”. He has big money in the amnesty crowd backing him and they are willing to let him say whatever will get him re-elected so they can get their amnesty pushed through after the elections (with McCain taking the lead).
Unfortunately elections don't seem to work anymore. It's gonna take the same action our forefathers took to get our country back.
Bad history repeating itself. Ignorance and big $$$ is the only thing that ever got McCain elected.
Poll: Voters Unaware of Candidates Immigration Positions; McCain Supporters Farthest Off the Mark
[snip]A new poll using neutral language finds that primary and caucus voters have little knowledge of candidates immigration positions. The results also show that voters often do not share their candidates position.
Among the findings:
* Only 34 percent of McCain voters, 42 percent of Clinton voters, and 52 percent of Obama voters correctly identified their candidate as favoring eventual citizenship for illegal immigrants who meet certain requirements.
* Of McCain voters, 35 percent mistakenly thought he favored enforcement that would cause illegals to return home, another 10 percent thought he wanted mass deportations, and 21 percent didnt know his position.
* Voters often held different positions from the candidate they supported. Only 31 percent of McCain voters had the same immigration position as he does. For Clinton voters, 45 percent shared her position; 61 percent of Obama voters shared his position
“Perhaps we should praise JD, after all in a few months he forced McCain to take some conservative positions. Something we could not accomplish for a decade. “
Since McCain started this race, he dropped his prescriptions for vitamins legislation, swears he NEVER supported amnesty (lie of the flippin’ century!)and wants to secure the border!
LIES, all lies. ARizona stands up with HB1070 then falls back in the rino dumper with McCain.
WAKE UP ARIZONA!
What is it with McCain?????
What makes him able to get a “surge” to win elections?
He was down and out in the Presidential election - then he appears as our only candidate for the GOP.
He has every reason to be down and out in Arizona now - but he comes in with a “surge”.
Looks really suspicious to me.
Arizona voter MAY BE stupid (if they re-elect McLame that will prove it)...
They DID, after all, vote for the 1% “temporary” sales tax this year.
I live in Erie County, NY and we have had our “temporary” 1% one-year sales tax for over 30 years now. They don’t even bother to comment on it when it is re-approved every year.
IIRC a poll was done after the Presidential election that found that 31% did NOT know that McCain was active in the Amnesty push. I can't remember whether it was Republicans or people who voted for McCain...
In either case, that's frightening. I'm not sure what that number would be now.
It tells me the people of AZ are too damned stupid for me to support. They deserve a bunch of illegal Mexicans. And with McCain back in that’s exactly what they’re going to get.
With only 334 people surveyed, the margin of error is fairly hefty, at 5.4. McCrazy surely still has a lead, but the reality is likely not even close to the numbers given here.
Her endorsements have secured victories for other primary candidates, you can not deny that, or maybe you can?
I think the voters sould purge all the MeCain/Romney-like RINOs.
If McCain wins, I am going to boycott Arizona.
John McCain: America is still the land of opportunity, and it is a beacon of hope and liberty and, as Ronald Reagan said, a shining city on the hill, McCain said. And were not going to erect barriers and fences.
June 6 2007, presidential primary debate
This poll must have been available in Spanish so that all the illegals could be polled.
I think Sarah Palin feels the need to be loyal to McCain personally. I guess from what I have heard they have a good personal relationship. I wouldn’t support him in a million years based on who he is as a politician, but I think it is a matter of personal loyalty to Sarah Palin. she would get just as much flack if she had not supported him.
I’m tired too. I wouldn’t be saddened to see him go. I’m also tired of those who rush from the arms of one bad date to another. What we need are real people in congress, people who are “stupid enough” to believe the constitution and stubborn enough to not change their minds once in Washington. Have we had enough with men and women who view themselves as kings? We need those who believe in self govt not big govt.
Rush Limbaugh: “Conservatism wins every time it’s tried.”
Well, not every time.
And depends on the candidate.
And the local voters.
And the current “crisis” flavor of the day.
Other than that, every time.
McCain is using conservative rhetoric to win. Too bad it's just rhetoric.
My folks live out in AZ, and the impression they get is that a lot of folks think Hayworth is "slippery" like a snake oil salesman. The infomercials in which he was shilling for people to get "free government money" didn't apparently help that impression.
Rush is speaking of those already in office.
McCain is the #1 fraud in history.
” My folks live out in AZ, and the impression they get is that a lot of folks think Hayworth is “slippery” like a snake oil salesman “
Funny....I live near Hayworth, and I don’t run into people like this at all.
You "Bots" all sing the same tune.
I was a fan of Palins well before she was picked by McCain. That doesn't mean that I accept anything she does uncritically. That's the difference. You act like a member of a cult instead of an independent thinker. Palin is valuable to this Country for what she does, not because of who she is. When she does things against the interest of this Country, like actively campaigning for backstabbing McCain, I, and others, will call her out on it.
If her endorsement won't affect any voters, her endorsement would be meaningless and candidates, including McCain, wouldn't actively seek it.
I am not against Palin, but I won't accept her actions uncritically and I will fight against her, and anyone else, when I think she is on the wrong side. She apparently either thinks McCain is a "common sense conservative", in which case she would be incredibly wrong, or she knows he isn't and endorsed him anyways going against her own stated principles. Either way, it does not reflect well on her.
Maybe Hayworth has a packaging problem, then. People who live near him like him. People who don't interact with him personally don't. Sounds like he needs to get off the radio and start presenting himself to the voters more?
Bigger fraud than 0bama? Are you serious?
If conservatism won every time, we’d be re-electing Senator Herschensohn instead of Senator Boxer.
As much as I like Rush, this is one of his more egregious misstatements.
Sarahs a joke, right norge?
Shuuure. Yah. You betcha.
I should have said Republican history.
Conservatism would have won if Palin had stayed out of it. She came in the first month JD announced and placed a spiked heel right through his neck. He hasn’t been able to recover since. The poor Tea Party didn’t know what to do so they stayed out of it and JD hasn’t been able to raise much money since then.
It does work everywhere it’s implemented in accordance with Conservative principles.

ONE FReeper who tells the gospel truth. Yet we have to suffer these McCain shills, and out of state FReepers who don’t know McCain has outspent Hayworth 12,500,000 to 550,000.
” Maybe Hayworth has a packaging problem, then. “
No, he has a money problem
” People who live near him like him. “
ALL of them?
I have to disagree. McCain has run to the right ever since he started campaigning. He has spent tens of millions of dollars to fool people into thinking that he is conservative. Hayworth was rising in the polls until McCain linked him to several anti-conservative positions (such as the free govt money infomercial).
I don’t think the problem is voters rejecting conservatism, I think the problem is that they have not educated themselves enough to know that McCain is a lying progressive scum bag rat.
I see the saps are falling for it again.
True dat. Word!
Yeah. I think I’m done with her.
no way is this accurate
McCain is making Conservative noises and it is working. I doubt his sincerity, but Arizona is eating it up.
This is what happens when a candidate runs negative ads 24/7 and the other candidate just sits on his money. Hayworth may as well quit and give the donations back, because he’s done nothing to win this.
I hate to say it, but it’s beginning to look like Hayworth’s been in it with McCain the whole time. This is looking more and more as though Hayworth is deliberately throwing this election to McCain.
Yes, ALL of them!
That's why I gave $0.00 to McCain in 2008. I knew he'd use my own money against me.
7. Hayworth hasn’t spent any money for ads.
I lived in Arizona when the Rocky Mountain Poll had a two to one advantage for Terry Goddard for governor. He lost BIG. They never got a poll right while I lived there (25 years) - I think they are housed at ASU, that should answer any questions as to where their mines exist.
Those adds are expensive, and I’m sure he’s waiting until the last minute to air them. I hope he has funds left for this.
So you are saying that McCain’s conservative campaign is doomed to fail?
AZ is not that expensive a buy, and I haven't seen any TV, or print, or signage. I haven't been listening to the radio, so I don't know if he's spending there, but I can't see any evidence of a campaign anywhere. None. It's as if McCain is running unopposed.
Your tag line is interesting...do you really understand the difference between darkness and light? “The darkness hates the light” just wondering...
That’s the stuff. My brother, who lives outside Phoenix, says as much.
Hang in there, J.D.! It ain’t over till it’s over!
I could easily believe that McCain didn't tap Sarah to help him win the White House in 2008 , but to help him keep his Senate seat in Arizona in 2010.
