What is this McCain - Hayworth thing?

Long time Senator and self proclaimed "Maverick" John McCain may not have such an easy time holding onto the seat that has helped him and his wife's family over the years.

It seems that even some people in his own party feel he is no longer connected with the citizens of this country, but is this the guy to put in "mavericks" place?

J. D. Hayworth has decided to launch a bid for Senator McCain's Arizona Senate seat.

Hayworth, a former Congressman said of Senator McCain, "When it comes to the U.S. Senate, he's just been there too long. You have to ask, what has he done in the last decade in Arizona?"

So what are Hayworth's views?

J.D. Hayworth on Taxes:

Hayworth says he helped to author the Bush tax cuts and supports repealing the Death Tax.

J.D. Hayworth on the Bailouts:
Hayworth opposed the big bank bailouts. He opposed the Obama plan, and he opposed the McCain plan.
(Sounds to me like he had NO plan)

J.D. Hayworth on Amnesty:
Hayworth says he helped lead the fight against the McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill.
(Just a note here folks: It was the first bill of its kind, incorporating legalization, guest worker programs, and border enforcement components. The bill was never voted on in the Senate. It was read twice and referred to Senate Committee on the Judiciary. Want to know more? Read the bill)

J.D. Hayworth on Gay Marriage:
Hayworth supported the Federal Marriage Amendment that would have protected and preserved marriage as between one man and one woman, and believes it is critical that marriage be protected from those who would redefine it.
(just another note here folks: The Federal Marriage Amendment was a congressional resolution proposing an amendment to the Constitution that would legally define marriage as the union between a man and a woman only. Obviously he feels that the Constitution should still be edited and Amended.)

J.D. Hayworth on Cap & Trade policy:
Hayworth opposes all Cap & Trade legislation and rejects climate change data.

(Just ignore the problems and I am sure they will go away.)

J.D. Hayworth on Free Speech:
Opposed McCain-Feingold and believes that a free and vigorous debate is always in the best interests of our state and our nation.
(One more note: The Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act of 2002 - Have you ever wondered why you suddenly started hearing "I'm {INSERT NAME HERE} and I approve this message"? Read the bill)

J.D. Hayworth on Terrorism:
Hayworth supports our military and its use of enhanced interrogation techniques. Believes that Guantanamo Bay should remain open and that terrorists should be treated as such.

(Because if you apply the right techniques even Mother Teressa would admit to having slept with Bill "play boy" Clinton after having smoked a bong with Osama. I suggest anyone who feels that this is the bast way to get information out of suspects, go to a third world country and commit a minor crime. Real minor, like jay-walk. After you are convicted for every unsolved crime in the country give the embassy a call and see what can be done for you after your admissions of guilt were witnessed)

J.D. Hayworth on Eric Holder:
Opposed the confirmation of Eric Holder as Attorney General of the United States.

So it appears that Mr. Hayworth is against gay marriage, against the use and implementation of the FBI and the legacy of investigation techniques, stands behind, well ... George W. Bush.

Good luck Arizona, I think you are screwed. You better start thinking of your state as the new Democrat outpost. If McCain doesn't get the nod, I am sure the Dem's will pour on the heat and Hayworth won't stand a chance.
