It looks like suddenly, John McCain is a republican again. McCain is portraying himself the lone wolf in the senate, standing strong and firm against President Obama and his socialist agenda. But what most people don’t know is that John McCain is also facing a strong republican challenger back in Arizona for the Primary. This is the only reason that the sheep in wolves clothing is suddenly becoming a republican again. Here is a link to the latest McCain polls in Arizona.
How much longer will the people of Arizona allow McCain to burn them in the senate? McCain has routinely sided with the democrats, especially when it comes to illegal immigration. For the rest of America that may not be aware of this, Arizona for all intents and purposes, may as well be a part of Mexico. There are more Mexican nationals in Arizona than there are in Mexico.
With any luck this will spell the end Of John McCain’s political career. Perhaps he can become a lobbyist for LULAC or MALDEF. But make no mistake, he has pulled this stunt so many times in the past on the people of Arizona that I can’t begin to count. If McCain is re-elected again, it will serve the foolish voters of Arizona right when the American flags come down and the Mexican flags go up. JD
John McCain has run against Barack Obama before.
He’s running against him again.
With campaign radio ads billing the five-term Republican senator as “Arizona’s last line of defense,” the GOP’s nominee for president in 2008 is attempting to bolster his 2010 campaign for reelection to the Senate with a slam at the president.
“President Obama is leading an extreme left-wing crusade to bankrupt America,” McCain says in one of the radio ads his campaign is airing.
“I stand in his way every day,” McCain says. “If I get a bruise or two knocking some sense into heads in Washington, so be it.”
McCain got his own head-knocking in the 2008 presidential election, and now he could be facing a party primary contest from a former Republican congressman, J.D. Hayworth, who is an outspoken critic of immigration reform – an issue which McCain has championed in the Senate, and an issue on which McCain, Obama and some of the Senate’s leading Democrats happen to agree. They support a path to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants.
But on the radio, McCain and Obama could not be further apart.
“He’s lived through a battle or two, vanquished many a foe,” a narrator says of the retired Navy pilot and admiral’s son who spent five and a half years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam. “But perhaps no battle in our lifetime is more vital than the one John McCain fights now… a battle to save America, save our jobs…
“John McCain leads the charge to slash government spending, bloated bureaucracies and ridiculously unaffordable ideas like government run health care.”
In another ad playing on a battle-tested McCain campaign tactic of invoking his days as a POW – reminding voters in Arizona that he could have come home to the U.S. earlier from that prison camp than he did (though Arizona was not home at the time) – the narrator says:
“John McCain is leading the fight against President Obama every day.”
It could get interesting when they get to that immigration bill.
