John McCain attacks the ‘Liberal Media’……

Damn….

Things must be getting a bit sideways for him….

Sarah Palin stuff….

With this move he’ll get conservatives rallied……

But watch for those Tea Partiers….McCain has been in the senate for how long?

Not a good thing these day, eh Daniel?


“The line that the liberal media is trying to write is that I’m in some kind of trouble, I’m not,” McCain told reporters on Tuesday. “I’m working hard. If I don’t work, I could be in trouble, I’m proud of what I can do for the people of Arizona who are hurting very badly right now.”

The Republican Senator also said that while he senses voters’ “frustration and anger,” he doesn’t believe the sentiment has “translated for support” for his conservative primary opponent J.D. Hayworth.

Politico reports:

Asked if Arizona voters were like angry Utah primary voters, who prevented Republican Sen. Robert Bennett from winning his party’s nomination in Utah, McCain said he senses “frustration and anger.”

“But I don’t see that translated for support for any opponent of mine,” he said confidently, adding that tea party groups in his state said that they would stay out of his primary.

The Department of the Navy …….and the Marines…..What’s in a Name?

We did a post on the one while ago….

The Marines stand-alone…..

But they ARE a part of the Navy…..

So when ever anyone brings up a name change for the two…..

Trouble breaks out…..

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is playing a major role in blocking a House bill that has a record number of co-sponsors.

The legislation, sponsored by Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), is one of the more straightforward bills in Congress. It would add three words to the Navy Department’s name, changing it from the Department of the Navy to the Department of the Navy and Marine Corps.

For the first time, and with Armed Services Committee Chairman Ike Skelton’s (D-Mo.) blessing, the measure will be voted on on the House floor Tuesday as a standalone bill.

The provisions in Jones’s legislation previously passed the lower chamber as part of the annual defense authorization bill, but were repeatedly rejected in conference by senators, including McCain.

The Marine Corps is under the umbrella of the Navy Department, a fact that proponents of the Jones bill say some people don’t know — including members of Congress.

Jones contends that not including the Marine Corps in the Navy Department’s formal name is a slight to the Marines who have fought and died for the U.S.

McCain, the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee who served as a Navy captain, disagrees. Asked if he backs the Jones measure, McCain, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, responded, “No. I don’t. That’s the Department of the Navy.”

McCain breaks right on Immigration for the up coming election…..

Sen. John McCain endorsed a tough Arizona anti-immigration bill Monday, despite his history of support for comprehensive immigration reform.

Yep…..

That ‘s the same Senator John McCain who has steadfastly called for reform on the nation’s Immigration policies…..

Damn..that’s a shame……

Wanting police officers to be able to arrest people of brown color ‘on sight’ as a presumption they are illegal immigrants

is a massive move backwards in this country …..

The term racial profiling comes to mind…….

And this guy wanted to be President?

Under current law, illegal immigration is a federal crime, and state law enforcement officials can only ask about it if a person is suspected of another crime.

Backers say the package of tough new rules will give police and other law enforcement the tools they need to combat increasingly violent immigration violations.

Opponents say the law essentially legalizes racial profiling. “If you look brown, you’re going to get asked for papers,” Sherry said. If Brewer signs the bill, he said, “she’ll go down George Wallace of our generation.”

The bill passed the state’s House on a largely party-line vote last week, and is set for a vote in the Arizona Senate Monday.

Daniel…..Arizona Senate Republican Primary: Senator John McCain (R-AZ) NOW also in Trouble of possibly losing Re-Nomination in August……

Hello Dog Folks!

It looks like the Tea Party Movement DRVING DOWN Republican Establishment Candidates. The latest Victim might be no one other than 2008 Presidential Candidate John Sidney McCain (R-AZ). A new Statewide Survey in Arizona shows McCain ONLY leading former U. S. Rep. J. D. Hayworth (R-AZ) by 5 Percentage Points.

First Crist, then Grayson, after that Bennett and recently Norton and McCain. How will this end when the Primaries are OVER.

I SAY THIS ONCE AGAIN: PLEASE EMBRACE THE TEA PARTY CANDIDATES

Rasmussen Survey

Arizona Senate 2010

Republican Primary

Incumbent Senator John McCain  47 %
Former U. S. Rep. J. D. Hayworth  42 %
Others  2 %
Undecided  8 %

Major Candidates Campaign Websites:

Analysis:

Just this week after the Kentucky SUSA GOP Primary Poll came out I told “The Dog” that if Paul would win this would sent SHOCKWAVES to the Republican Establishment Candidates. Rasmussen PROVES me right on that.

Daniel G.

The Dog thanks the Tea Party women and men of American for helping the Democratic party…..

Update from Daniel…..…..


Both Republican Candidates however lead Democratic Challenger Rodney Glassman (D-AZ) in the General Election:

McCain (R) 54 %
Glassman (D) 32 %

Hayworth (R) 48 %
Glassman (D) 39 %

The McCain pick….. Sarah Palin is now the star…….

John McCain and Sarah Palin

Funny how things turn out….isn’t it?

She quits her job and rises to the top……

The Dog alway thought that people in general vastly underestimate her brains and ability to steal the spotlight……

They may not be confortable with a presidental run for her..burt she sure can stir up the base…or the ‘Tea Party’, huh?

Their national campaign together ended badly for both, topped by a flurry of leaks dumping on the former Alaska governor and, since then, nasty accusations between the senator’s camp and hers over the conduct of it. Whatever happens now, the reappearance of McCain and Palin on the same stage illustrates how much things have changed since 2008.

For starters, the understudy is now the star. A majority of Americans may think Palin is not qualified to be president, but the GOP faithful love her, as does cable television.

Strange Happenings……Sarah Palin is helping John McCain?

Wait….wasn’t these two throwing punches at each other right after the election?

What is going on?

Is the anti-Healthcare banner?

Or is it playing nice for her own political future?

The former Alaska governor primed her supporters for the visit by blasting Arizona Democratic Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick, Harry Mitchell and Gabrielle Giffords for supporting the healthcare reform bill.

“We’re going to fire them and send them back to the private sector, which has been shrinking thanks to their destructive government-growing policies,” Palin wrote on her Facebook page Tuesday.

“We’ll aim for these races and many others,” she added, before asking supporters to donate to her political action committee.

About 1,000 people have signed up to see the 2008 GOP presidential ticket reunite at the Pima County Fairgrounds on Friday, according to the McCain camp, which grumbled that turnout may be hampered by the noon weekday start time.
