From The GOOD News File. Part Two.

This is a companion piece to my earlier post about Lindsey Graham, and the good folks of South Carolina.

It looks as if the good people of Arizona are getting fed up with Lindsey’s puppetmaster as well. Read and enjoy.  From Breitbart.com.

 

Arizona Republicans Seek Distance from ‘Out of Step’ John McCain

  Could it POSSIBLY be we could shed our senate of THIS asshat, AND his puppet next year? Damn sure hope so.

As Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) continues to support amnesty for America’s illegal immigrants and President Barack Obama’s proposed plan to militarily strike Syria, Republicans in the state are condemning his actions as inconsistent with GOP principles.

The Maricopa County GOP’s latest electronic news briefs, published on Saturday, Sept. 7, is chock full of anti-McCain stories and full of examples of how McCain has abandoned GOP principles. “There Is Lots Of Chatter Regarding The Short Notice The Public Had On Sen John McCain’s sudden, overnight called Town Halls in Phoenix, Tucson and Prescott this past week,” the Maricopa County GOP wrote on its website. “Briefs has confirmed reports that that McCain’s office didn’t bother to notify AZGOP Robert Graham, nor Maricopa County Republican Committee Chairman AJ LaFaro. Now if that isn’t a slap in the face of two top Arizona GOP elected officials.”

Filling the clips section of the Maricopa County GOP newsletter are a batch of negative news stories about McCain’s activities pushing military intervention in Syria’s civil war. Headlines range from how much money McCain makes off defense contractors to someone at one his town hall meetings calling for him to be “arrested and tried for treason.” It is one thing for some constituents to feel that way, but for an official body of the GOP—the Maricopa County GOP—to seemingly endorse the comments indicates McCain is drifting further and further away from mainstream political views.

Maricopa County GOP is not the only place condemning McCain’s activities in the U.S. Senate. A high-ranking Republican source close to the state’s U.S. congressional delegation told Breitbart News that the state’s Republicans believe McCain is abandoning both conservative and centrist Republicans to support policies that are out of line with the GOP. “There is a growing concern among Arizona republicans that McCain is increasingly out of touch, and out of step, with conservatives and moderates,” the AZ GOP source claimed. “His constant war mongering, demand for amnesty, praise for Obama and Napolitano, demands for higher spending while attacking conservatives has convinced many he lacks core principles.”

With the exception of freshman Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ), who was elected last year with great hope from the conservative movement but stumped for the Senate’s controversial immigration bill, the entire GOP congressional delegation stands against McCain and with the majority of voters in the state on immigration, Syria, and other issues. Reps. Matt Salmon, David Schweikert, Paul Gosar, and Trent Franks each oppose the Senate amnesty bill and want border security first. Salmon, Schweikert and Gosar are on record against using U.S. military force in Syria, whereas it is fairly safe to predict Franks will be against it. Breitbart News has reached out to Franks’ office to confirm but has yet to hear back by press time.

Even Democrats in Arizona’s U.S. congressional delegation appear to oppose going into Syria and will likely stand with voters of Arizona over the wishes of President Obama. The Arizona Republic reported last week that Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) is likely to vote no, and fellow Democratic Reps. Ann Kirkpatrick, Ron Barber, Ed Pastor, and Kyrsten Sinema “were undecided as of Wednesday.”

Constituents have blistered McCain at town hall events across Arizona over the past few weeks. At one event last Friday, a black woman rose up and said:

Senator McCain, given the fact that wars cost billions of dollars and kill people, and the fact that there is a two-digit unemployment rate in America’s inner cities among black-skinned people like President Obama, an increasing use of food stamps strongly encouraged by the president, government-run schools that are more concerned with promoting anti-Christian beliefs and values, and the brainwashing of our precious children to have slave-like mentality, the aborting of millions of helpless babies by Planned Parenthood, why don’t you and the Gang of Eight apply the same war-like vengeance and effort to dismantle the Department of Education, remove government regulations that inhibit economical progress, stop giving illegal aliens citizenship so they can vote for a dictator in America and stop the crimes perpetrated by often skill-less invaders and let my people and all American citizens thrive?

As she started her question, McCain joked that he was not “easily intimidated” by anyone. When she finished, McCain only replied that she made “many valid points” and that if he were elected president in 2008 instead of Obama, things would be better. “In fact, some of those would have happened if you have voted for me for president of the United States,” McCain said with a laugh.

This event took place in September 2013. McCain lost the election more than five years ago.

It looks as if the good folks of Arizona may be waking up, like the people of South Carolina, that just because some political hack has an R after his name makes him conservative.

Get Grahamnesty out of S.C., McCain out of Arizona, and pick up a few GOOD conservatives such as Ted Cruz, while not perfect, a DAMN sight better than these two, we could have a chance at some DECENT senators.

Now, if ONLY we in Michiruit could find TWO good conservatives who’d run to fill the retiring dinosaur Levin and the odious Stabusnow’s seats……. ahhh… dreams.

    Two good conservatives in Michigan? Uh… Remember Lot trying to find 10 righteous men in Gomorrah?
    Michigan… Oh, yeah. Home of Keith Ellison, right?
    Uhm… Al Franken. Isn’t he from Michigan? Or Minnesota or Wisconson or somewhere around the Great Lakes…
    Give it up, Clyde. Move to Oklahoma or Texas… Take Texas because if you start getting homesick Texas has enough leftists to remind you why you left the frozen wastelands of Nawthun Hew Hess Haye….

    • Clyde says:

      Yep, Buck, there are two conservatives in Michigan. Me, and Dave Camp. Just a minor bone of contention. Do NOT blame US here in Michiruit for the freak Franken, and muslim asshat Ellison. THOSE ballsacks are MINNESOTA’S problems!!! haha

  2. Buck says:

    And… Maybe J.D. Hayworth could have a better run at it this time?

    I’m glad you posted this, Clyde. I saw the story earlier and it gave me a good chuckle. His armor isn’t so invincible after all and maybe it’s time for McCain to switch sides again.

    He’s harping on an election he lost 5 years ago – do we detect some bitterness there? hehe

    • Blessed B. says:

      Maybe…if he hadn’t decided to throw Sarah Palin under the bus as his scapegoat for throwing the election to Obi….then he would have done some good for the USA! At least with Sarah in there some things might have gotten done!

      • Clyde says:

        You ALWAYS have to remember one thing, BlessedB. McCain was ALWAYS the top of the ticket. Sarah, IMHO, had ZERO chance to do much with a megalomaniac like him around. Once they saw she would speak her own mind, look how quickly his campaign shut her up. Again, IMHO, Sarah would have had a MUCH better chance later down the road had she told McCain NO THANKS. As good as she seems to be, THAT association MIGHT have hurt her future chances. Time will tell. Thanks for coming by.

    • Clyde says:

      Thanks, Kathy. Always like to shoot GOOD news out there.

    I’m thinking McCain was re-elected again in 2010 which makes him in there for another 3 at least…
