Skip to comments.McCain: From Respecting Obama to Disrespecting Conservatives
Posted on 07/19/2010 7:11:07 PM PDT by rabscuttle385
McCain and Hayworth faced off in two debates over the weekend.
On July 17, 2010 in Tucson, Arizona a debate hosted by KUAT PBS-6 was intended to be a debate on the issues facing Arizona. But at every opportunity, McCain threw out personal attacks on J.D., including calling him a "pig." This is a far different McCain than the one who debated and campaigned against Obama - and a far cry from what you would expect from a statesman.
The reality is, McCain has been attacking J.D. with negative advertisements since before J.D. even entered the race. McCain has spent in excess of $6 million attacking J.D.
In stark contrast, J.D. has only run one television ad throughout Arizona - which was an appeal from J.D.'s wife Mary for McCain to stop the personal attacks and discuss the issues. From all accounts, an unprovoked McCain has come out swinging - focusing on everything but the issues.
During the debate, Hayworth responded to McCain's attacks by stating, "If you had told the truth about Barack Obama the way you're spreading falsehoods about me, you might be president of the United States right now." No words could ring truer.
It is vital that J.D. gets his message to the voters of Arizona during the final month of the campaign. People need to know what we know - there is only one "consistent conservative" in this race. McCain has been in Washington too long and it is time we thank him for his service and bring him home.
Because there is just over a week before voters get early ballots - we need your contribution now so we can put it to good use before the majority of Arizona Republican primary voters vote the first week of August.
The very foundations of our republic are at stake. We need a Senator who truly believes in conservative principles and will stand up to the leftist agenda overrunning Washington. Your help is urgently needed to accomplish this.

its really time for him to go hime ..and live out his days quietly.
McCain insults hard-working, honest Arizonans (again)
McCain responded by saying immigrants were taking jobs nobody else wanted. He offered anybody in the crowd $50 an hour to pick lettuce in Arizona.
Shouts of protest rose from the crowd, with some accepting McCains job offer.
Ill take it! one man shouted.
McCain insisted none of them would do such menial labor for a complete season.
Some in the crowd said they didnt appreciate McCain questioning their work ethic.
If JD doesn’t win the GOP primary, I hope he sticks around and continues to fight. He’s been outstanding!
There’s always Sarah for McAmnesty!
I'd prefer he live out his days somewhere OTHER then Arizona.
McCain is a floater. He won’t be easy to flush.
Enough to make a healthy man sick reading all of this.
I gotta hand it to you though even if we disagree on Sarah. You do great yeoman’s work here on FR.
A progressive RINO will ALWAYS be such no matter how hard he or she leans right.......during an election year....heck, there are loads of folks in AZ that will fall for such...51+% of the country did on lamearse Jack Squat Barry.............=.=
Don’t let the door hit you in the b***, RINO!!
Rush explained it quite well today. McCain is part of the “ruling class” along with the dimoKKKRATS. J. D. Hayworth is not part of the “ruling class” so McCain will go harder against a Hayworth than his buddies/friends in the ruling class. Explains things quite well and McCains behavior over the years.
You’ve got to wonder what’s in the water in AZ and NV. A semi-trained monkey should be able to beat McCain and Reid.
I’d vote for it before I voted for either of them.
McCain really is very unreliable for conservatives.
Hayworth did talk radio for years. He had plenty of practice to be polished.
How we wish it weren’t so, but McPain speaks for the people of AZ. They only know how to vote for those with name ID. Like the UT neighbors for Hatch
I read that American Spectator article after Rush talked about it today and it is very informative. As you said, it explains why McCain was respectful to Obama and not to people like JD.
“[Hayworth] was too “prepared” and “scripted” to be natural, showing that he came prepared to go for the jugular.”
I remember hearing Hayworth speak in special late night sessions on the House floor. He is very proper and ‘old style’, even when it’s spontaneous. So I can understand your feeling if he still lacks the grit required of a presidential candidate.
As for the ticket splitter, he’s been slandering Hayworth maliciously. The only ‘sin-certiy’ in his voice is ‘sin’.
And guess who McCain has endorsed in the Kansas primary for U.S. Senate...moderate Jerry Moran! Congressman Todd Tiahrt has the endorsement of Sarah Palin, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Tea Party Express, Congressman Tom Tancredo, Dr. James Dobson, J.C. Watts, Congressman Mike Pence, and too many others to list. Get out there and vote for the true conservative in this race, Kansans!
That was one of my favorite lines in the debate.
He was also a local tv sportscaster.
lol for 50 bucks an hour I would pick lettuce until my hands bled... What’s with this- “Americans wouldn’t lower themselves to this kind of work” garbage?
I suppose maybe if I were a member of the ruling class like McStain it would be inconceivable.
If AZ keeps him in office they deserve to be over run by Mexicans. And that’s exactly what they’ll get.
Because of dire econimic reasons, I had to move from AZ to CA to avoid being homeless. I only wish that I could vote McCain out of office. My only consolation is that now CA has one more republican voter.
