John McCain: Cochran's Tactics against Tea Party in MS Worth Emulating
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/06/30/McCain-Cochran-s-Tactics-Against-Tea-Party-In-Mississippi-Worth-Emulating ^

Posted on 07/01/2014 12:54:20 AM PDT by TigerClaws

One week after traveling to Mississippi to do his utmost to help Senator Thad Cochran (R) beat Tea Party rival Chris McDaniel, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) talked about the strengths he saw in Cochran's approach to campaigning.

According to AZ Central, McCain dismissed criticism over the tactics the Republican Establishment used to get black Democrats to cross over and vote for Cochran.

Said McCain, "There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans."

Remember when he suspended his campaign?

It took RINOs nominating someone that incompetent to lose to Obama.

He’s an unspeakably evil clown.

How the hell does he keep getting re-elected by the good people of Arizona!?

I’m weary of waiting for this turd to finally get flushed down the bowl...how long will we have to put up with this guy?

“I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans.”

he cant be that stupid to not see that what happened had nothing to do with getting out the minority vote. he is using nancy Pelosi retard logic.

i’ll digress, so don’t read if you’re not in the mood.
but this is the state of how we talk about minorities in this culture.
there’s a commercial they run late at night for cancer centers of America. the patient is a 30 something African American male. this is what the treating doctor says:

“when I first met ron, (the patient), I thought, he’s just like me, like my twin. (the doctor is white). we’re almost the same age and height, the same life experiences like married and having kids”

ok, is it just me, or was this a sop to diversity.
like twins? so, if you are almost as tall as someone, close to their age and married with kids, you’re than twin, and regardless of race. is it me?

"I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans."
There was a time when we all thought that, John - but that was before the Republican Party nominated you - and you told "minority and ethnic voters" that Barak Obama would be a good president.
And this was a case of getting Democrats to vote against one Republican - and only incidentally “for" another one.

Such exquisite timing on the part of Crash:

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Government/2014/06/30/Democrat-Pastor-Accuses-Thad-Cochran-Campaign-Of-Vote-For-Pay-Scheme

Hopefully, (1) there is video of McCain and (2) the vote-buying allegations against Cochran are substantiated. Then, in 2016, should Crash go for another term, his primary opponents will run the obvious commercial, and he will be reduced to spluttering about not knowing at the time!

This bum was never a war hero, he was a crappy pilot who was permitted to keep flying because his father was the Admiral in charge. He got captured because he was an incompetent pilot. Bum.

Yes, reminds one of a certain Senator Spector and his shift to "get re-elected". That did not work out for him.

Could the same could happen for other RINOs in Novemeber mid-terms?

McCain will only be able to get card carrying members of La Raza to vote for him in the 2016 senate primary. I don’t even know if white liberals will cross to vote for him with his war mongering.

“How the hell does he keep getting re-elected by the good people of Arizona!?”

Arizona has open primaries as well. Open primaries are nothing more than a security system for the old Democrats who switched to Republican to keep true conservatives from getting into their Democrat game.

‘How the hell does he keep getting re-elected by the good people of Arizona!?’

Good question and one that begs an answer. I wouldn’t describe the AZ electorate as ‘good’ though. A more apt description would be apathetic, corrupt and willing to lie and be lied to. Change doesn’t come out of DC it comes from our communities. If they’re corrupt what do you expect from DC? We’re the problem not Them.

He definitely sustained some “dainbramage” somewhere along the way. It is a common condition among liberals and RINOs. Seems to be a lot of that going around in Washington.

With Democrats they have been shelling out much more than that for most of my life.

Bingo! He has been incompetent at everything he has ever done. If it weren't for who is father and grandfather were he would be serving Slurpees at 7-11 instead of ruining this country.

John McCain is a member of the KKK and it is well known he is a racist that wants blacks and Hispanics in slave chains.

How’s that John?

He got captured because he was an incompetent pilot. Bum.

Your first statement is correct; and for contrast, his father was a WWII military leader America could be proud of.

You second statement suggests that capture is the result of crappy flying and out of respect for all the good pilots who have been captured by America's enemies, you probably didn't mean that. But, we can say his shoot-down resulted in a lucky NVN gunner winning a bicycle.

The only real chance was 2010. He only got 56% then by taking some good voters and doing the border ad. Between 2004 and 2016 he will be unaccountable.

I want to know how he will use Cochran’s method.

There are a lot more lawfully present blacks who can vote in a Republican primary than their are registered independent big Government Hispanics that can vote for McCain. Unless there is a lot registered independent La Raza members who think the DNC is not liberal enough.

White conservatives hate his amnesty and white liberals hate his wars.

The Daily Caller poll had McCain hated by all 3 voter groups: R, I and D.

"“I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans.”"

John McCain is a moron. 1) The election was a Republican Party Runoff and not a Democrat Party election no matter what color the Democrat voter is. 2) McCain's a moron, if he believes these Black Democrats will vote Republican in the General Election. The playbook that Thad Cochran used is a Democrat Party playbook, this playbook with the race-baiting, demagoguery, lies, smears and character assassination will then be used against Thad Cochran. Isn't that great, John McCain, moron?

Now, the Democrats have used these tactics against John McCain himself in his races in Arizona and during his Presidential Campaign and he approves. Great! Good News!

McCain is a moron, did I mention that? He's also amoral in that any tactics, legal, illegal, race hatred inciting, demagoguery and lies is all, all OK. John McCain, what a tolerant guy. They hate the Tea Party and John McCain hates the Tea Party. Apparently, anything that hurts the Tea Party is A-OK with the moronic, amoral, evil John McCain. Good thing I voted for Palin and not Juan McEvil.
