McCain votes: `Taking nothing for granted'
KTAR-FM 92.3 News Talk Radio Phoenix, Ariz. ^ | 2010-08-24 | Jim Cross

Posted on 08/24/2010 3:15:20 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

PHOENIX -- Sen. John McCain expressed confidence he will win a fifth term as he dropped off his primary election ballot at a polling place in uptown Phoenix Tuesday morning.

McCain, accompanied by his wife Cindy, arrived at Madison Camelview Elementary School a few hours after the polls opened.

He spoke briefly to reporters: "It isn't over until it's over. We're looking forward to moving forward after tonight to the general election and working just as hard as we did in the primary and taking nothing for granted."

Eff McCain. The creepy wife and daughter quickly shut up about that gay marriage stuff. I do hope JD wins.

Yea, McCain, we figured you weren’t taking anything for granted when you spent $20 million to destroy your opponent. So much for your campaign finance reform. What an evil man you are McCain

Did he forget all the years he took us or plain forgot us for granted?

I didn’t.

The Democrat that runs against Juan in November can expect a contribution from me.

My wife and I got into a discussion the other day on whether we should vote for the democrat over McCain in November. I know it sounds crazy but McCain is a very dangerous man. Just think of how many people and media outlets (including fox) he got support from. McCain will single handly destroy the conservative agenda.

Lets hope that JD pulls out the upset.

Probably worse than Arizona re-electing him...is that so many alleged “conservatives” supported McCain and attacked JD

Arizona does not realize that John McCain, once returned to the Senate, will work to do away with AZ SB 1070. You betcha

McCain is evil. Every lib paper, magazine, Soros polling companies, AZ TV, national TV rallied around him. He is arguably worse than Obama.

That Democrat won't need a contribution.

McCain will be weakened with very little money leftover. Since the Dems are expected to lose some Senate seats, McCain's seat will be ripe for the salvaging.

Hayworth supporters won't support him, and Dems sure as Hell ain't going to "crossover" for him. I really see McCain losing his seat in the general.

Unfortunately though, he's going to win the primary.

This Senate seat is in the bag for the Democrats. JD, if he wins the primary, is not a strong general election candidate. McCain will be weakened after this primary fight and Dems will hover over him like vultures.

If Juan wins and the democrat running against him is weak perhaps conservatives should vote for the democrat then hammer that person for 6 years and ultimately get a true conservative in there.

McLame’s votes won’t be reliable anyway.

What would be worse. A Democrat Senator from Arizona or another 6 years of McCain? The republicans will pick up other seats.

From what I have seen since January 2009, I would say the DemocRAT...but not by much considering who is the so-called Republican.

Remember in November: Defeat the ‘RATS, then the RINO’s.(To do the latter, you must do the former FIRST.)

I think I would vote for the Dem. Mccain is a Dem in leadership position in the GOP.

OK, you convinced me.

Now: How do we ensure that McCain will vote our way on ANYTHING that we care about such as immigration?

We’ve lost the vote anyway. Although I tend to agree with you in principle I honestly don’t see as much of a down side to this gamble as you do.

All that matters are the votes. McCain won’t deliver. SO what’s the difference? At least with a dem we have a clear target to isolate and attack.

If McCain prevails today, then you should vote for the Tea Party candidate that will surely run against McCain in November.
If that helps deliver the seat to the Democrats, then so be it.
What’s worse, a Democrats who votes with his party, or a Republican who votes against his?
Either way, the votes are the same. But at least a Democrat doesn’t give the Democrats ‘bipartisan’ cover when he votes with them.

There is no Demonrat conservative enough who conceivably could run against Juan who I could vote for. Of course, not being in AZ, I won’t have to consider that, thank goodness.

Even Beck’s sidekick Pat Gray is against Hayworth. Sickening. He said he wouldn’t cry if McCain wins. Just doesn’t like Hayworth. Well, I’ll cry for him.

OK, OK, I accept your flames. And I’m not from AZ so I’m not voting one way or the other either, never fear.

The question still remains, and not just for McCain. We need to put more pressure on RINOs. But how? How can we get McCain to forgo amnesty, for instance? That is important.

I guess it all depends on the number of seats we have after November.

As I posted in another McCain thread, I want this man defeated, either in this primary or in the general election. Sad that I want a GOP member to lose, but this man is one of the dirtiest senators out there and he didn't do enough to defeat Obama in 2008.

If he had spent his money to Obama as he has to defeat Hayworth, this nation might not be in the mess we are today.

With the support of SB 1070, and most in AZ against Amnesty...JD has a very good chance to win the general election. Contrary to Liberal RINO myth...being tough on illegals actually brings in crossover votes.

Beck is an employee of Saudis over at Fox and he is a profiteer off conservatives. Rush is the real deal. Hannity is not in Rush’s league but he is not a fake like Beck.

Beck did a lot of that moral equivalnce sh*t by saying “well a pox on Democrats and Repubs cause they are all the same.” Beck and his pal O’Reilly are also anti-birthers to keep their Saudi bosses happy and cause they are both whores.

Savoy your victory McCain tonight. You beat a weak man. BUT know this—the American People have your number now. You are no longer the media darling. You had a hand in getting Obama in to the White House—you are almost as guilty as he is. If you won, you would have done many of the same spend, spend, spend policies as the O-man. At least we are leaving Iraq—you would have had us there for 100 years.

If JD loses can he run as an independent? McCain spent 20 million on the primary - how much can he have left for the general?
