Skip to comments.Arizona voters blinded by might
Posted on 08/19/2010 4:26:23 AM PDT by rabscuttle385
Next week, Arizona voters have a chance to do something really important for the Republican Party. Eliminate a key RINO (Republican in Name Only) and clean out some deadwood in the United States Senate. John McCain has been a major stumbling block for conservatives for decades.
In an interview with Glenn Beck, Rick Santorum said this about his former colleague: "On almost every major domestic policy issue that I dealt with over the last six years anyway when I was in leadership of the Senate, John McCain was not just on the other side ... (he was) condemning people who hold the position opposite to you and sort of buying into these fallacious arguments that the left would argue on and everything from ... importation of drugs to global warming to immigration."
Unfortunately, Arizona voters have short memories. Maybe it's the summer desert heat. Maybe it's their age. (Arizona has a larger-than-average retirement community.) Maybe they are blinded by the beauty of Sarah Palin who had no choice but to endorse her former running mate. More likely, it's his $20 million media blitz against a worthy primary opponent, J.D. Hayworth.
There is no limit to the amount of money a powerful and rich incumbent like McCain can raise. McCain has outspent Hayworth 10 to 1. No surprise there. What is surprising is that the majority of Arizona voters appear to be fooled again.

Time and long past time for Johnnie to go home.
What Arizona voters need to ask themselves is, if they are unwise enough to re-elect McCain, how many days will it take for him to return to his old open-borders, amnesty ways. And other RINO-isms.
Anyone voting for McCain deserves him.
I'm reminded of the old tootsie pop commercial: "Mr. Owl, how many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop?"
As I recall, the answer is "three". But that may be optimistic.
The only problem is while Arizonians may vote to keep him in office the entire country gets shafted, and may possibly die, with his leftist voting and pandering to the commies.
But... but... but... Michaal Medved sez that McCain is a Great Conservative.
I mean it.
Not to worry. When Martha Coakley was running against Scott Brown, she put on an ad featuring Victoria Reggie Kennedy. The ad oozed a sense of entitlement—”the next Senator WILL BE Martha Coakley”, with no mention that she even had an opponent.
That pretentious, pseudo-aristocratic ad bombed big-time, and helped Scott Brown win. Sen. Brown CAN beat Victoria Reggie Kennedy. The Kennedy dynasty is DEAD!!!!
I wish that I could say the same for the horrible Serbophobe and muslim-kisser McCain.
Ah, Mr. Santorum, why are you not in Arizona telling every Republican voter, who will listen, exactly this? Comments on Glenn Beck aren't enough, get out to Arizona and stop McCain. Jeesh!
An interesting thing about the Victoria Kennedy story is that, while she is being urged by some folks to run for his old Senate seat, the Kennedy family is pressuring her to move out of his house in the Kennedy compound so they can turn it into a museum in his honor. (Barf) In other words, she has no value herself, but is valuable only as his widow, for political purposes, and only as long as she stays humble enough to know her place in the hierarchy, which is low on the totem pole.
I listen to Santorum when he’s subbing for Bennett. He came out in support of McCain early on in the primary, he’s still upset that Paul won in KY, and has conceded DE to Castle, while literally dismisisng O’Donnell.
I like Santorum; he seems like a nice guy, but he’s status-quo Republican and while not a RINO, he seldom bucks the party establishment.
Sums it up pretty well. Additionally, I see Bennett exactly the same way. But he is a true Neo-con and they are mostly RINOs. Bennett strongly pushed McCain in the presidential primary.
CNBC had a news clip on hayworth.
McCain sees it as HIS seat.
McCain sees his role as taking ted kenedy’s place as the lion of the sentate.
McCain is the chuaua saying “you quiero taco bell”
he is totally undeserving of respect. REGARDLESS of his past military service.
As OldMissileer points out, Arizonans aren't the only ones affected by his continuance in office. A vote to retain impacts us all.
You are so right - and I shouldn’t have been so flippant. I’ve been disgusted with the King of the RINO’s for many years - and yes, his evil impact is extremely harmful to our country.
Not this resident. We're out of state but the wife and I voted absentee ballot for Hayworth. Hope we're not alone.
No problem. I wasn’t being critical. I believe most on this board are as fed up with McCain as you are. I just wanted to show agreement with the thought that McCain, though representing a state, affects us all equally. Not a good scenario when it comes to one who is not what he’s made himself out to be.
John McCain vs. John McCain
The war hero will enter a heroic battle with himself after he cashiers talk jock J.D. Hayworth in Arizona’s Republican primary and rounds the corner toward the general election on November 2. McCain built his reputation on being a man of conscience, rather than party; someone who reads from the playbook of a higher body, not that of the Republican caucus. But with the immigration debate at full boil, the former maverick has re-incarnated himself as a conservative flamethrower, saying whatever he can to earn points with Tea Party nation. Having spent a fortune to beat Hayworth, McCain will enter a new round of shadow-boxing, as he tries to determine how much of his old fighting self he wishes to recover.
FLUSH THE JOHN! McCain HAS to go!
(To the tune of Frankie & Johnny!)
Johnny and Teddy were Senators
On opposite sides of the aisle
They got together and drafted a bill
Guaranteed to make illegals smile
Amnesty was their game and they had no shame
Johnny and Senator Feingold
Gave campaign finance a try
But then the highest court in the land
Said the 1st amendment must apply
Gotta play by the rules now Johnny looks like a fool
Johnny and Mr. Obama
They both agree Gitmo should close
But bringing terrorists into the USA
Is a plan that we oppose
No, they dont belong and Johnnys got it all wrong
Now Johnny and Senator Lieberman
Got together on cap and trade
Anemic hands across the aisle
Gonna send the country to its grave
Its time to let him know old Johnnys gotta go
Johnny believes Global Warming
Limousine Liberals and all
Congressional junkets to Copenhagen
Everybodys havin a ball
Just ask Al Gore - Johnny knows the score
S & L Man Charlie Keating
He came to Johnny one day
Said the government boys are sniffing around
How much to make em go away?
Did Johnny take a bribe to join the Keating 5?
Now fast-forward 20 years later
Banks are in trouble again
Johnny says, Lets bail em out
Its just a trillion or maybe ten.
Lets put some wind in their sails cause theyre too big to fail.
We know theres oil in Alaska
Drilling wont cause any harm
But Johnny agrees with the tree-hugging geeks
Gas is gonna cost a leg and an arm
Johnny why cant you see whats good for you and me?
Now everyone knows about ACORN
They get lots of taxpayers dough
Prostitution rings and voter fraud
And home loans to any old schmoe
No matter ACORNs crimes Johnny thinks theyre just fine
Were tired of hearin your flip-flops
Were tired of hearin your lies
You may think were all dummies but you cant
Pull the wool over our eyes
Youre careers hit a snag - so start packin your bags
Cause Johnny, youve worn out your welcome
Its time to bid DC goodbye
Go write a book or learn to cook
And eat a little humble pie
Just ask Sheriff Joe he says you gotta go
Yeah, go Johnny, go its time to hit the road.
MUST SEE!! on YOU TUBE!
A political hack is a negative term ascribed to a person who is part of the political party apparatus, but whose intentions are more aligned with victory than personal conviction.
Sheriff Joe vs. General Holder
The investigations reflect the tangled politics surrounding the immigration debate.
The criminal probe is led by Dennis K. Burke, the U.S. attorney in Phoenix who was a top aide to Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano.
Two of Arpaios attorneys, Robert N. Driscoll and Asheesh Agarwal, were officials in the Justice Departments civil rights division in the George W. Bush administration.
They denied that the sheriff, a Republican who has been reelected four times since 1992, has been uncooperative or has engaged in racial profiling, misusing money or targeting political enemies.
The sheriffs office is cooperating fully with the grand jury investigation and has complete confidence that the inquiry will clear it of any wrongdoing, Agarwal said.
The office has always fulfilled its responsibilities truthfully, honorably, and in full compliance with state and federal law.
Arpaios attorneys contend that the investigations are politically motivated, citing a news conference in March at which Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. was quoted as saying he expects the inquiries to produce results.
While we have no quarrel with the assistant U.S. attorneys handling the investigation, the attorney generals comments appear to violate federal regulations, departmental policy and state ethical rules designed to ensure the fairness of criminal investigations, Agarwal said.
Brewer and her supporters have also asserted that the Justice Department was politically motivated in its lawsuit over the state law, which authorizes, among other things, police officers to ask about the status of people suspected of being in the country illegally.
A federal judge last month stopped the most controversial sections of the legislation from taking effect.
Hecomes from a very long and distinguished Navy family. That being said he is not the man his father, grandfather and great grandfather were.
Wherever you are, you can campaign by phone for JD. My free minutes on my cell start at 8, so I’ll go until 9:30 until 8-23. Or if you have unlimited long distance you can start earlier. Go to the jd website and they’ll hook you up, script and all. It may be a miracle if he wins, but if he does, I will have been part of that miracle.
Some you call have voted by mail. At first I asked who they voted for, but most won’t reveal it. That I may have influenced a few dozen people is worth it to me.
It helps to channel all the stored up venom for liar McCain .
"Rick Santorum said this about his former colleague: "On almost every major domestic policy issue that I dealt with over the last six years anyway when I was in leadership of the Senate, John McCain was not just on the other side ... (he was) condemning people who hold the position opposite to you and sort of buying into these fallacious arguments that the left would argue on and everything from ... importation of drugs to global warming to immigration."
and then endorse McCain? Insane.
Thanks for doing so much to help JD.
