Skip to comments.LIVE THREAD! - Arizona senate GOP candidates Face-Off in debate - WATCH ONLINE
Posted on 07/16/2010 5:35:36 PM PDT by onyx
Tonight, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) will debate his primary challengers, former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) and conservative "tea party" activist Jim Deakin in one of only two Republican primary debates.
During the one hour debate, Hayworth will likely concentrate on McCain's 28 years in Congress with a focus on his position on immigration. Deakin said he will compare and contrast his approach in representing constituents to the "other two entrenched politicians." A McCain campaign spokesman said that the Senator "looks forward to a spirited discussion on the issues facing Arizonans."
The LIVE debate will take place tonight at KTVK-TV in Phoenix, Arizona.
LOL, it’s sooo hot especially since we only have a swamp cooler, but I made it. 500 calories done so now I won’t have to go to FEMA Fat Camp (did you hear how they’ll be taking our BMI and putting it in our national records?). Now I can go jump in the pool...
At the rate McLettuce is making me mad, I’ll be a size zero soon, LOLOL.
I’m not getting it on either of my cspan channels, I’ll look online.
JD needs to mention the dollar amount McCain has spent trying to smear him.
I would LOVE to see Senator McCain, actually, come in third place. It would make my day.
When is the primary, August?
GOP primaries are fun to watch. They tell us everything we expect to hear.
flagstaff, window rock and I forget the 3td place was found to have voter issues based on promises for the vote while partying for free w/ copious amouts of free booze
i didn’t know that john had agreed to anything more than ONE? wonder how he (john) will feel after tonight?
It’s called KARMA incorporated.
the “McCain diet”, all “Lite and no substance”. :)
>> That closing remark was horrible. McCain managed to patronize him in his remarks.
LOL - I agree.
“Deakin, my friend, you blew the ending, but it was only your first time.”
Votes for who won the debate were (about) 15% McCain, 25% the third individual, and about 60% Hayworth.
Folks, this is going to air on Sunday at 5:30p.m. again.
I sure would appreciate it if you would each join me to comment on that replay. If it is possible, I would like McCain to get held to account for his treachery.
Yes! You’re right and JD came to the debate fully prepared and it paid off.
Mc is too damn old and that much was obvious in election ‘08. He’s no match for the younger, sharper JD HAYWORTH, WHO’S EXCELLENT ON TV.
Oh and we can’t forget the lettuce.... that’s allowed. Since he’s paying us $50/hr to pick it...
When I was a kid, all we had was the swamp. It was darn hot in July and August. No matter how much H2O I turned on, it never cooled down. (Didn’t understand as a kid the mechanics of how the swampy worked. I finally had to put my sheets and underwear/jammies in the freezer about 1 hour before bedtime)
I thought so too! Woo-Hoo!
Hopefully, there will be a real poll that is meaningful on this. I wonder just how many watched?
There is two debates, I forgot it was tonight and then was on Facebook and JD had posted to be sure and watch the debates tonight and tomorrow night.
I’m still waiting for that job. Since I lost my job, that 50 bucks an hour would come in real handy.
I wish Fox news had shown it.....
Ah, I’ll have to check it out and not eat chili beforehand.
I’ve been here 19 years and this summer’s kicking my ____.
I need the monsoon to break!! We can see lightning all around, but the rain is just not hitting our block.
I jump into the pool when I’m working at home and before I go to bed, that way my hair is wet and keeps me cool(er)...
JD reminds me of Reagan tonight.
Mccain was a sore loser tonight. Refused to look at JD and very bothered by his responses.
When I was a kid we would get a big block of ice and everyone would sleep on the concrete floor in the livingroom with a fan blowing over the block of ice in a tin wash tub. LOL
He could get the sympathy vote for it.
Yup! He was so mad, he was about to blow!!
that would do it. sometimes i got my clothes wet, turned on the fan, and lay in bed soaking wet. wet, but cooler.
Deakin is pitiful and just blanked out in his closing statement. He needs to give it up and get behind the Conservative cause.
McCain got his rapid blinking going full throttle which is a sure giveaway that he's lying faster than his brain can register.
“JD HAYWORTH, WHOS EXCELLENT ON TV.”
Hayworth is a decent statesman. I caught several of his ‘special order’ speeches and debates in Congress. The stint of radio host didn’t hurt either. He learned to listen, and he was always pretty good at that.
For all this charisma and TV appeal talk, no one ever seems to mind that McCain comes off BAD more often than not.
I’ve got a dirty dishrag with more ‘charisma’.
Had to listen on the internet (out of state for the summer) and wouldn’t you know it, computer issues so only heard the last half hour!
What we did hear was an energized and well prepared JD as compared to a tired old man.
Can’t wait for the early ballot to VOTE FOR JD!!!
You missed some great responses by JD. Hope you can catch the reruns or a transcript.
I don’t think JD gave Deakin any time in his responses.
I was really proud of JD tonight, he did great. McCain just looked and sounded old and mean.
i hadn’t heard that one. my grandma said that when she was little (before swampy and air), they would hang up wet sheets in the windows and since it cooled off, they slept outside.
Looks like it’s being re-run on AZCentral’s site in four parts.
How active is JD now in TV and radio advertising? He really needs to follow this debate up with some good ads from here until August 24.
Thanks, swheats, I will try to catch it.
OH noooooooooo!!!! I'm so sorry! I'm still holding onto mine, but who knows when they might outsource me. There's nothing much in Tucson, but there never really has been.
Yep, did that too. That was when you slept outside though, it was your “walls”

There isn’t much of anything anywhere. Still waiting for the “stimulus” to kick in. /s
thanks for the link :)
I hope Sharron Angle is able to do the same for Harry Reid.
Thanks Carolyn. They will be doing a cram course for McCain before tomorrow night. I hope JD has his A game on. He needs to keep it up with the serious body blows while smiling and “respecting his service”.
my other grandparents had a “sleeping porch” on top of the house out in the “country” at Bethany Home and 16th street. lol
the grandparents that lived “in town”, had the canal running by their house. that was my dad’s swimming pool.
LOL - bless you, girlfriend. I have to get up now - I have sat too long - do not want a sore butt! Thankfully, I do a lot of swimming every afternoon!
LOL, since we’re talking about the good old days.....my parents were offered a house on 7 acres for $7,000.00. My dad couldn’t come up with the money but said it was OK since nobody would ever live out that far. It was on Camelback and Scottsdale Rd.
Is Sharon going to debate Dingy?
'If you had attacked Obama as much as you're attacking me, you might be President right now' ~ JD Hayworth, tonight!
I felt that one all I could do was say OUCH!
For anyone wanting to record it. CSPAN is now going to show it.
