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).

And that is why I have no faith in elections ever turning this country around. Stupid, stupid voters.

Unfortunately elections don't seem to work anymore. It's gonna take the same action our forefathers took to get our country back.

Just sayin.

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

March 2008

[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 candidate’s 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 didn’t 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. “

BINGO!

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.

Have they forgotten why they needed the Arizona illegal alien law in the first place?

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.

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.

So you admit Sarah’s endorsement and constant ads running help McCain?

Unfortuantely, yes.

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.

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 we’re not going to erect barriers and fences.”

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.

Well, not every time.

And depends on the candidate.

And the local voters.

And the current “crisis” flavor of the day.

But in the end, she's not going to change her mind about it so who is making it an issue? It's those who need a strawman to keep on hand in case of a McCain victory. It's those who were never supporters of Sarah to begin with.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

McCain has had weeks of saturation advertising, and no amount of last-minute advertising will overcome the now-latent bad impression the voters have of JD Hayworth. Negative advertising works.

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.
