Here's ONE answer to this liberal article.
There’s still time! Ping
Maybe its Johns committee work...and the pork list he leaves himself off of every year..while cutting deals with democrats.
“His campaign has spent about $20 million, compared with Hayworths roughly $2.5 million.”
Yep, and roughly the same goes for Sharron Angle and Harry Reid with his enormous campaign chest. There is some consolation in the fact that Sharron is running neck and neck with Harry.
I tried to watch the local Arizona news about the captured fugitives last night. It was impossible. One hateful political ad after another. I couldn’t get through the “news” and had to go to another, less hateful, channel. I’ve got a feeling that it is going to get REALLY UGLY between now and November. The communists are desperate.
Response: Well, it looks like McCain will survive. It was so hopeful just a few months ago. Lord! We cannot get rid of these clowns. Everybody knows what he will do on the immigration issue once he is elected i.e. 80,000,000 Mexicans will be citizens overnight!
What was the "other guys" baggage?
Hayworth was not the candidate to upset McCain.
Hayworth was a re run when we needed a new fresh face with NO baggage.
I can’t stand McCain, but since when is The Christian Science Monitor a liberal rag?
Agree..but there was nobody else..so what JD has done is force McCain further to the right, and hopefully make it harder for him to “modify” his positions post election..remember also, that the GOP caucus in the Senate will be much more conservative..
That should have been spent against the CommiecRats that have infested the White Hut.
Instead HE (Juan Mc Lame) decided to spend it against Conservative Republicans!
You nailed it! JD has forced Lindsey Graham to pick up the RINO banner and carry the RINO banner while McCain tries to pull his own gonads out of the fire. This past year could have been REALLY ugly if Hayworth had not forced McCain to dig out his “I’m A Conservative!” baseball cap. If McCain wins, he’ll go back to being Mr. Reach Out Across The Aisle but he had to sacrifice a lot of his credibilty while trying to keep his job.
“What was the “other guys” baggage?”
Pomposity, arrogance, foot in mouth disease.
That is the best part of this senate race. Of course, there is always linseed carrying McC’s water for him but you are right. It will be difficult, but not impossible, for McC to go back to being the traitor.
Actually, I’m not too worried..look..this is McCain’s LAST term coming up..so if he goes too far back to the left..he’ll guarantee Graham a primary challenger...right now, I think it’s even money that Lindsay doesn’t run again...whether the GOP takes the Senate, or falls just short...they’ll get it f’sure in 2012...it’s gonna be must see C-span TV...Rubio, Toomey, Angle among others..add to C oburn and DeMint..heck..I’ll make a prediction right now, after the 2012 election..DeMint will be the majority leader..
Thanks for the response. I guess he was a jerk!
Love those sticky notes!
“What was the other guys baggage?
Pomposity, arrogance, foot in mouth disease.”
That’s more MCCainspeak and pure BS. Give an example of it by Hayworth ...you can’t! But McCain? PLENTY!
If McCain is elected for another 6 years of damage to this country, we WILL thank you for spreading his lies!
Capitol Hill staffers rate their bosses.
Worst Follower 2. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
Show Horse 2. John McCain (R-Ariz.)
Hottest Temper 2. John McCain (R-Ariz.) known to snap at staff when the cameras are off
HELLO ARIZONA!!!! You’ve made us proud with your stand against the tyrannical Obama Administration and open borders and your willingness to enforce our immigration laws!
But you’re making the same mistake you’ve made for 24 years...you are believing lies.....
The never ending stream of lies from John McCain and his supporters.
Indeed, Sen. McCain has been on the stump in Arizona of late, telling everyone how he supports SB 1070, how he wants to ‘secure the border’ and is against ‘amnesty’.
HE IS LYING, again!!! Stop letting this man use you!
How SOON we forget! But you better remember HIS WORDS!

*America is still the land of opportunity, Senator John McCain recently said. And were not going to erect barriers and fences. June 26, 2007 National Review
*SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, R-ARIZ.: I do not favor using troops because they are not trained for it. They dont have the kind of qualifications necessary. I have strongly favored us using all the technical equipment that our military has including satellites, including aircraft and other technical means. May, 2001
*McCain continues to be well, McCain, throwing out liberal lines to catch the unsuspecting. Here he promises to push the failed Kyoto treaty.
I am committed as President to pursue the efforts to reduce greenhouse gasses immediately. That includes joining Kyoto as long as we have India and China involved. It would not be fair to the planet to say the two largest growing economies who are greenhouse gas emitters are not part of it.” April, 2010
*On the View: Meghan McCain Blasts Tea Parties
Sen. John McCains daughter says the movement is filled with innate racism.
Does ANYONE think Meghan isnt doing her fathers bidding???
*On the 2008 campaign trail: McCain had been asked how debate over the immigration bill was playing politically. In the short term, it probably galvanizes our base, he said. In the long term, if you alienate the Hispanics, youll pay a heavy price. Then he added, unable to help himself, By the way, I think the fence is least effective. But Ill build the goddamned fence if they want it.

* May 29, 2003 interview: McCain: Amnesty has to be an important part because there are people who have lived in this country for 20, 30 or 40 years, who have raised children here and pay taxes here and are not citizens.
* Dec. 15, 2000 press release: McCain: I support the Latino and Immigrant Fairness Act (LIFA). Negotiations between the White House and the leadership, which endorsed more limited immigration reform, have resulted in a compromise.... this bill makes meaningful but insufficient progress on amnesty for those wrongly denied it.
Q: Should we change our Constitution to allow men like Mel Martinez, born in Cuba and Schwarzenegger, born in Austria, to stand here some night as candidates for president?
McCAIN: He and I have many similar attributes, so I have to seriously consider it.

McCain: “ Those who live closest are the ones who can get here. Everyone in the world should have the opportunity through an orderly process to come to this country.”

McCain attacked Proposition 106, an Arizona statewide referendum that was being advanced by the so-called English-only movement. McCain told the teachers, Why would we want to pass some kind of initiative that a significant portion of our population considers an assault on their heritage?
McCain was one of 10 members of congress who were honored by the National Council of La Raza, a nationwide coalition of Hispanic organizations. In a speech at a ceremony in Washington, before an audience of 500, McCain again attacked English-only initiatives. The building of our great nation is not the work of immigrants from one or two countries, McCain said, Our nation and the English language have done quite well with Chinese spoken in California, German in Pennsylvania, Italian in New York, Swedish in Minnesota, and Spanish throughout the Southwest. I fail to see the cause for alarm now.

*McCain actually said this just a few weeks ago.
President Reagan granted amnesty to two million people and that was wrong,

*This may be the ONLY time John McCain told the truth.
John McCain 2008 Prez election: no amnesty for illegal aliens could lead to France-style riots
...The man wasnt satisfied with McCains answer. He asked McCain why the U.S. couldnt execute large-scale deportations, as he had heard they did in France and other countries. The question seemed to pique McCain.
In case you hadnt noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France, McCain said. Theyve got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police cant even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I dont want that in the suburbs of America.
McCain, the “maverick,” has been in Congress for 28 years, or since winning his first election in 1982. He is no longer fighting the establishment; he is the establishment. He personifies the compromise wing of the Republican Party, which has since become the dominant wing.
Hes an EMBARRASSMENT!
The thought of [John McCain] being president sends a cold chill down my spineSen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), also a senior member of the Appropriations panel, told the Boston Globe recently. He is erratic. He is hotheaded. He loses his temper and he worries me. Washington Post
