PHOENIX (AP) - John McCain's Republican primary challenger suggests the country would be worse off had McCain won the 2008 presidential election.
Responding to a question from the audience at a Phoenix tea party meeting Monday, Hayworth says he doesn't like President Barack Obama, but a moderate Republican would be even worse than the Democrat.
Speaking of the Arizona senator, Hayworth says: "I think the last thing we needed was a progressive trying to wear a Republican cloth coat as president of the United States."

In some ways, he would have been.
J. D. Hayworth is exactly right. McCain is worse than the Senate twins from Maine.
How stupid would the people of AZ have to be to believe that McCain is now against illegal immigration?
He would be worse, because people would accept this progressive crap
McCain vs. Obama is the question:
Do you want to sprint to the left with the speed of the current 100 yard dash world record holder?
Or would you rather sprint to the left with the speed of the 100 yard dash world record holder from 1980?
Both of them would have lead us left - the only difference is the speed at which they’d do it.
On many issues, he would have been. He would have been radically better as commander in chief, but disastrous on domestic issues. It would have done further damage to the country and the party.
LOL. If Mccain had won, the tea parties would be next to non-existent. And it is the tea parties and the rediscovery of the demand for constitutional limits of government that is the last best hope. McCain and Palin would be busy pushing amnesty and cap and trade instead of ObamaCare and teacher bailouts. But the Bachmanns of the world would be muted.
Does McCain hate America?
End of discussion.
At least McCain loves America!
By the time 2012 rolled around the GOP would have been about as influential as the Know-Nothing Party. Palin's future would have been toast.
Note: This is the AP trying to smeaar JD and make McCain look good. Time and time again the liberal media keeps trying to nail JD and help McCain. It is obvious that McCain is a Democrat.
“At least McCain loves America!”
Not too sure of that.
He wears the same globalist pin on his lapel as Hitlery does.
McStain fully earned this statement years ago.
My thoughts on McCain has been that I don't trust a person who speaks without their lips moving. It's like he is always talking through his teeth.
End of discussion.
The sellout within your own ranks, can do much more harm than the enemy.
You can rally against your enemy. The sellout will rally your own troops against your own team.
Who is supporting John McCain’s return to Washington, D.C.?
All the idiots that voted for Obama are getting their just rewards. That wouldn't have happened under McCain.
It's the old I'd rather die quick and painlessly than bleed slowly.
As extremists usually are.
We need the venerable John McCain in the senate because he is capable to reach a hand across the isle and get along.
John will get 'er done if reelected.
John is the bridge to the leftists that make sure things get done in D.C.
J.D. Would just disrupt the harmony.
And lying thru them to boot.
McCain Feingold put the Democrats in power 2006/2008 and Obama in power. How is that loving America? They are going to destroy America. It will never be like it was pre-2008. McCain is responsible for that.
Yep, JD is correct.
Never forget, McCain told his supporters that Obama would be a good president if elected, and cajoled them (his supporters) to basically be nice to Obama... Ass >O< McCain...
We would have got about 60% of Obama’s liberalism along with 100% of the blame for it failing. I won’t argue which is worse but I know the GOP would be even more liberal with McCain at the helm and nowhere to turn when the electorate revolted.
I suspect that McC would be, indeed, effectively worse than the Kenyan. He would have gone for Amnesty first and would have got it because he would have carried all the RINOs. Soetoro will have to try to do it by EO and I don’t think he can confer citizenship quickly with that. Amnesty trumps all other positions and policies. With Amnesty, citizenship, and voting cards for the 15-40 million newly documented Democrats the Republican Party will disappear from the national scene like the Whigs of yore and there will be no new party to replace them.
So If tonight some one came to you and said, I am going to send you back to January 19, 2009.
You have a chance to undo all that 0bama has done - Trillion dollar stimulus, Wise Latina, 0bamacare, Kagen, and you would get McCain and Palin instead, you would stick with Obama?
What continues to shock me is how much harder McCain is fighting for this Senate seat than he EVER fought to become President. Its as if the Republican nomination was all he really wanted in ‘08. He just handed the win to Obama. Pathetic.
“If Mccain had won, the tea parties would be next to non-existent”
Let's go to the tape:
John McCain is totally in bed with La Raza.
I didn’t and wouldn’t vote for either.
You’re correct. That statement is BS and it’s so far off the mark, it would make me vote for McCain. It says AZ has their choice between two who lack character.
“John will get ‘er done if reelected.”
Just like he always has:
Prancing to the far left, and sabotaging every chance we have to correct the crap.
There is soooo much more to beltway politics than just being right.
John McCain is proved to be steadfast and capable of giving 100 miles to gain an inch to maintain the peace.
He's a good man.
McCain wants and, as president, would have obtained Amnesty and 20+million new Social Democrats with 40million more heading north. In his head he is pro-American. In the real world he is effectively and extremely anti-USAmerican.
I’m certain you were attacked for stating the obvious (God forbid, right?), but then again, if Hayworth is this desperate at this point, the night of the AZ primary might be a good day to stay away from FR....
No trillion dollar stimulus but McCain wouldn't be able to push or extend the Bush tax cuts anyway through the Dem Congress.
Dem Congress would have forced him to choose another Souter.
There probably wouldn't be no Obamacare. But McCain wouldn't have done nothing about reforming healthcare anyway so the status-quo would have continued.
And Palin would be powerless and ruined by 2012.
That’s definitely what’s happening. It stil sickens me that we don’t yet have a good, true Conservative ready to run from President in ‘12.
Carter gave us Reagan but if Obama gives us Romney, Pawlenty, Newt etc...we’ll be back here in four years a few steps further down the leftward path instead of being pushed hard to the right which is what needs to happen
You convinced me, he should be President!!
That’s not “gaining an inch”.
That’s losing 99 miles, 5279 feet, 11 inches.
True, JD, but your electorate is too dumb to understand what you are saying.
You reach across the aisle to get along by accepting leftist doctrines and policies. Period. McCain is emotionally pro-American and conservative. He is effectively Social Democrat Marxist. He would rather get along socially with the Real Ruling Class as they see themselves and as he sees them than actually prevent economic and social destruction of America.
Sarcasm noted. I just don’t think he would be as intent on destroying our country.
Palin is already ruined, especially after McCain is finished using her to try to get re-elected.
I think it has to do with the fact that he had a job already. When people have a job and then go to a job interview to see if they could get a better job sometimes psychologically they don’t do as well as they would if they did not have a job to fall back on. It happens all the time.

"1606 is needed because federal courts have ordered the Federal Election Commission to regulate "electioneering communications" on the Internet because of the Bipartisan Campaign Finance Reform Act (McCain-Feingold). If H.R. 1606 fails to become law, your Web site or blog could be shut down for the 30 days prior to a primary election and the 60 days prior to a general election should you express "electioneering communications."
British government pays US lobbying firm to improve transatlantic relations
He has been lobbying US politicians on the US-UK joint strike fighter project on behalf of the British Government. The embassy is now listed as one of Mr O’Brien’s biggest clients.
Mr O’Brien is a donor to politicians seeking re-election. In 2008, he gave money to at least 15 different politicians including both John McCain, the republican Presidential candidate, and Hillary Clinton, the democrat secretary of state.
Other clients of his firm include Cobham, the British defence firm, and the Dutch Embassy in Washington.
He may not hate America but he sure hates Americans. Why else would he do everything in his power to strip us of our first amendment rights? (McCain Finegold), or push immigration amnesty (McCain Kennedy)
Why would he call us racists while we were being killed off?
LOL, that was a good imitation of a blind liberal. Too funny!
but a moderate Republican would be even worse than the Democrat.
It’s worth remembering in 2012.
