AZ-Sen. 2010: Tea Party could hit its boiling point in Arizona primary (WaPo attacks J.D.) (BARF!)
The Washington Post ^ | 2010-04-20 | Michael Gerson

Posted on 04/19/2010 9:16:08 PM PDT by rabscuttle385

When Arizona's bitter Republican primary election arrives in August, it is likely to be 102 degrees in the shade, of which there is little. It is the kind of weather in which only the hearty and highly motivated venture outdoors -- Gila monsters and Tea Party activists. Which may not be good news for Sen. John McCain, who is generally disliked by the latter.

A recent poll puts McCain just five points ahead of J.D. Hayworth, a former congressman and radio talk show host who aspires to be Arizona's Samuel Adams. McCain operatives dispute that the race is this close, but they cannot dispute that McCain is running in a political environment in which absolutely anything could happen to an incumbent.

the only Tea Party candidate with a history of hosting fundraisers in lobbyist Jack Abramoff’s sports skyboxes....been enthusiastic legislative earmarkers, or voted for the Medicare prescription drug benefit, or supported the 2005 highway bill, which included the “bridge to nowhere”?

This is all true. Conservatives Freepers don't care as long as JD hates mexicans.

“J. D. blah, blah,...but it don’t matter ‘cause JD’s gonna keep out those drug dealing, prison overcrowding, emergency room clogging, disease spreading, welfare collecting, job stealing sub-human mexicans.”

For many years you’ve been pulling your race baiting BS. You’ve always opposed ANYONE who won’t coddle an illegal alien...and it isn’t OUR fault that most of ‘em are Mexican...that’s THEIR fault, and yours for fighting conservatives over just about everything, especially those of us opposing amnesty. Aren’t ya gettin’ tired of it? I sure am. What a shame that tactic, JUST like the left/WHite house race baiting, is allowed here. Most of the squatter support squad has been purged out of here long ago. But you stay quiet, like the coward you are, until you can jump in and insult, bait, and lie about anything you can.

Because of people like you, Once-Ler, FR is again reduced to the level of DU. But divide and conquer is what it’s all about for you.

Yeah, I’m a bigot. I HATE trouble makers like you who have no problem destroying the sovereignty of my country over RACE and illegal aliens. YOU are the only one who is or has used disparaging remarks against Mexicans. YOU SUCK.

Post some substantiation for your accusations against Hayworth or shut up with your ‘opinion’. Yes, he admitted he used a sports box... SO WHAT??? THEY all do! There was NO quid pro quo! McCain gambles at Indian casinos he approved in his senate committee...for free and gives them a loop hole as big as Bull Run in his CFR! Talk about a ‘race’ being used...NO one has used a race like McCAin has used the Indians and has been using Mexicans with his pandering nonsense.

ILLEGAL ALIEN IS NOT A RACE, IT’S A CRIME!

Yes, AuntB has become a Prejudiced Bigot!

Excellent post to Once-Ler, a longtime apologist/enabler for the pro-illegal alien crowd. He and I have tangled before. Shortly after that, JimRob mucked out the corral and FR was cleared of a host of non-conservatives including most of the open borders enthusiasts. Apparently Once-Ler is among the few who survived. Looks like another shoveling out is going to be required if FR is to remain a conservative forum for conservatives.

 Since some folks seem to like lists, I'm going to help out...

John McCain's Whimsical World of Conservatism

Food for thought for the George Soros, Teressa Heinz Kerry, Tides Foundation et al  wing of the Republican Party.

1979/04/00 McCain meets Cindy Hensley.  She is 24, he is 42.  They start dating shortly thereafter. "I persuaded her to join me for drinks at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel. By the evening's end, I was in love."  Source: Dan Norwicki and Bill Muller LINK
1980/01/07 McCain officially ended cohabiting with Carol his first wife according to court documents.

2001/05/25 McCain defends Jeffords for switching parties and caucusing with the Democrats, saying the Republican party treated him and others unfairly, who wouldn't tow the party line.  This remained true to form for McCain as he had been shooting his mouth off at the expense of the Bush administration on just about any public forum he could claw his way into since Bush had secured the White House in December of 2000.  McCain was very bitter that Bush had bested him in the primaries of 2000, and he determined to take his pound of flesh from the Bush administration at every opportunity.  See also Peak Maverick and other here.

2005/01/12 McCain introduces a bill (S1033) on the floor of the Senate, during the first session of the 109th Congress.  It's co-authors are Ted Kennedy, Brownbeck, Lieberman, Graham, and Salazar.  The bill among other things, initiates a study (Section 1004) on how to set up a system where U.S. health insurers can become bi-national, providing health insurance to U.S. and Mexican citizens.  McCain was trying to set up a road to health care for Mexican nationals. Is this more infrastructure being 'harmonized' in the effort to establish a one hemispheric entity, the North American Union?  One must ponder, Is John MeCain our Senator, a Mexican Senator ruling from our side of the border, or a representative of the United Nations assigned to relegate the United States to a nation whose citizens have absolutely no way to affect the laws they are subject to?  If we're just part of the North American Union, what real sovereignty will we have?  What ability will we have to demand our laws be changed, if two other nations want those laws because they favor them?

John McCain's presidential campaign last year lobbied for a European plane maker that beat Boeing to a $35 billion Air Force tanker contract, taking sides in a bidding fight that McCain has tried to referee for more than five years.  Two of the advisers gave up their lobbying work when they joined McCain's campaign. A third, former Texas Rep. Tom Loeffler, lobbied for the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Co. while serving as McCain's national finance chairman.

Arpaio around 2004 to back Mesa police Cmdr. Dan Saban over him.
2009/10/25 McCain defends Obama against Cheney's comments on his Afghanistan dithering, calls for unity with president
2009/11/18 McCain defends campaign staff against Palin
2009/12/02 McCain criticizes Obama for proposal to cut Medicare to fund health care, but fourteen months ago... this.
2009/12/06 McCain defends Palin while referring to her as irrelevent, then lauds her work
2010/01/10 McCain Strategist Schmidt trashes Palin, says McCain had planned to name Lieberman as his VP choice in 2008
2010/01/20 McCain coopts Palin for his own purposes.
2010/01/21 McCain and Brown meet, McCain's office... coopting alert
2010/01/21 McCain/Feingold Finance Reform takes big hit from SCOTUS, as Conservatives had first predicted Malkin
2010/01/22 McCain coopts Brown for his own purposes. Conservatives: Beware of McCain Regression Syndrome
2010/01/23 McCain's PAC supports California's former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina for U. S. Senate, likes Jessie Jackson and gender politics.
2010/01/26 McCain, U.S. Supreme Court overturns bulk of McCain/Feingold Act (Part 1) (Part 2) (Part 3)
2010/01/26 McCain, Bayh team up on spending freeze bill to back Obama, and to grant him line item veto.
2010/02/03 McCain introduces the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010.  Bill S3002.  The U.S. Government and the pharmaceutical industry have been trying for decades to clamp down on dietary supplements, to protect people from God knows what, to reduce competition with their medications, and also to gain market share in this arena.
2010/03/24 McCain joins other Senators to form a caucus on Global Internet Freedom.  While sounding rather benign, McCain's past inability to see things clearly, causes concern regarding any effort he decides to become a part of, especially if it's as important as a tool of freedom of speech.  One can only wonder if this will come back to haunt us like so many other things he's become involved in have.
2010/03/25 McCain calls for civility in debate over the Health Care bill, echos Democrats call for peace.  RNC head Steele refuses to buy in.
2010/03/26 McCain is taken to task by Andrew C. McCarthy in a commentary titled, "the Mark of McCain".  It seems McCain offered (and Graham was involved too) an amendment that had terrible ramifications, in all likelihood leading to the release of Mohamedou Slahi, one of the 9/11 plotters.  Read the detailed summary at the link.
2010/03/26 McCain, even the L.A. Times has his number.  They herald his movement to the right (during re-election bid).  They also touch on how McCain coopted (my term, not theirs) Palin and Brown for his benefit.
2010/03/26
McCain appears with Palin on FoxNews' "On the Record", with Greta Van Susteren.  Among other things, Palin states, "I support his position on immigration."
2010/03/27 McCain calls in his favors from Palin, and she spends the day lavishing praise on him at appearances.
2010/04/12 McCain's "FRIENDS" place this video on YouTube, making fun of Republican concerns on a number of issues, utilizing juvenile tactics to smear J.D. Hayworth.  The attacks come off precisely the way a Democrat attack would on each issue.  I'm sure the Democrats will appreciate this when they face Hayworth after he wins the primary.
2010/04/14 McCain gets testy, "Agitated McCain: Don't call me a maverick" saying he never thought of himself as a 'Maverick'.  Strangely the last few days are the first times he has objected to the title.  His face used to light up with an ear to ear grin when they began labeling him as one eight to ten years ago.  He was the darling of the leftist Talking Head shows for nearly a decade for this reason alone.  He was willing to carp at the expense of his own party and fellow members, buttressing the leftist paradigm.  More links (1) (2) (3)  See also: Peak Maverick this LINK, explaining in part why McCain was first called a Maverick.  It started in 2001, and McCain reveled in it.
2010/04/14 McCain is described by former Congessman Tom Tancredo as "a squish", "a liberal Republican".  Harsh comments at link, explaining what McCain would have been like if elected president.
2010/04/16 McCain, a search of his big donors in 2008, reveals some interesting figures.  Mr. Campaign Finance Reform himself, always a big mouth about how much money floats around Washington, D.C. corrupting other politicians, and himself pushing through un-Constitutional legislation to limit such donations, had a sure fire method to make sure he got his.  Speaking of crooked, I can only wonder, was he speaking from experience?

v 2010/04/16

Darn that J.D., isn't he just the worst...  ;-)

“Because of people like you, Once-Ler, FR is again reduced to the level of DU.”

That’s because he’s a self-avowed “team player”, a “Republican FIRST, conservative SECOND”....who clearly has no problem continuing to support progressives. He’s part of the problem, not the solution.

Not anymore. Looks like #54 got removed. I can't imagine why. You think the McCain campaign posts here possibly? Sounds like John's talk.

I heard a rumor that AuntB sits at the border with her laptop and a shotgun. I wouldnt try to sneak by her :)

Wow. I didn’t know we had any McCainiacs among us.

And people who are in favor of ILLEGALS plundering and pillaging our country???

I think FR might not be the right fit for that sort of thinking...

I cain’t hardly stand it. Every time I look at the TV lately, if I ain’t seeing the blue djinn, I am seeing juanda snake. It just thoroughly messes up my day. And evening. And morning.
Fox had him on almost every hour since Sunday. Even when I am not paying attention, if I look over, I get that “want to kick in the screen” feeling because one or the other is plastered all over it smiling their phony smiles, lying through their teeth, and it just keeps going downhill from there.
If AZ votes him back in, I am afraid my head will explode, so I am taking the precaution of stocking up on Evil Conservative duct tape.
It’s wierd that Rubio is all over everywhere on Fox, but not JD nowhere. Wonder why?

You argue like a liberal. You sensed you were losing the argument, so you played the race card. Perhaps you would feel more at home in DUmmieland or at Huffpo.

RE :” Illegal is not a race, its a CRIME!

What? Wasn't the 14th amendment about freeing illegals from immigration laws after the civil war? That is what they teach in public school now, in Spanish.
