Hardball: Tim Schwartz defends AZ GOP McCain censure

MSNBC’s ‘Hardball’ host Chris Matthews has had a difficult time coming to terms with political realities. Few will forget he was so smitten hearing Barack Obama speak, that he admitted to being overwhelmed by athrill going up my leg.” Later, when he felt Obama wasn’t sufficiently liberal to suit his far-left ideals, he turned fickle on the Obama of his affections, haranguing him for a litany of infractions.

For a conservative to appear with such a radically liberal host — where this devout extremist calls the shots — takes spine. Yet that’s exactly what Republican Legislative District 30 Chairman, Timothy Schwartz did Monday evening. Schwartz is the man responsible for drafting the Resolution of Censure against Arizona Sen. John McCain that passed overwhelmingly by elected members of both the Maricopa County Republican Committee on Jan. 11, and this past Saturday at the  Statutory Meeting of the State Committee of the Arizona Republican Party. To date, elected GOP Precinct Committeemen in Apache, Cochise, Gila, Maricopa, Mohave and Santa Cruz counties have passed similar Censure Resolutions against McCain.

Timothy Schwartz was not to be browbeaten by the likes of the brash over-speaker Matthews and his illogical arguments or David Corn, Washington Bureau Chief at ‘Mother Jones’ (MoJo) a left-wing political magazine published by the Foundation for National Progress —- connected  to none other than George Soros Open Society Foundations.

The duo thought they had an easy mark in their sights as the segment opened with a claim of, “How far to the right the Republican Party has gone.” Matthews repeatedly attempted to elicit comments from Schwartz on McCain’s foreign policy positions, but Schwartz stayed on topic and clearly articulated the points contained in the Censure Resolution he authored.

Chris Matthew’s program is intimidatingly titled ‘Hardball.’ But he and David Corn — tag-teaming liberals — were no match for the steady Timothy Schwartz.

    Good job Timothy!!

    They wanted to pick and choose single issues to throw you off track……glad you did not fall for that.

  2. East Valley PC says:

    Matthew’s program should be called “Intimidation.” He and his equally liberal partner David Corn lobbed what they considered their best shots at Timothy Schwartz and still came off looking foolish. Schwartz carried the message of McCain’s career-long siding with Democrats against Republicans. These sanction resolutions were voted on by REPUBLICANS who voted against the old RINO. I’ve read that it was “factions,” or the “Tea Party.” I’ve never attended a Tea Party meeting and I’m not part of a faction. I’m a Republican elected Precinct Committeeman and State Committeeman and was happy to vote against McCain. I’d be equally happy to vote against Jeff Flake who is McCain’s underling.

    What’s known in show biz as the “big reveal” is crystal clear here as liberal Chris Matthews defends McCain, save for his “hawkish” war-mongering! Today’s liberals were raised by the “Better Red than Dead” (pro-Communist, anti-war) rhetoric of Bertrand Russell. They believe there is nothing worth fighting for. Thank God our Founders didn’t follow that idea or there would be no United States of America. Thank God also that those who fought the Nazis taking over Europe and the Japanese who bombed our military installation at Pearl Harbor in World War II didn’t hold those thoughts.

  4. Matt DeGennaro says:

    Glad to see SRAZ included the link that connects David Corn, Mother Jones and the Foundation for National Progress to George Soros. That connection is no doubt why Corn was selected to defend Soros’s good friend, John McCain. This isn’t rocket science, folks.
    Read this article telling how John McCain has been funded by George Soros since 2001.

  5. Masked Truthman says:

    What a turnabout! Timothy man-handled Matthews and Corn to the point that, had it been a prize fight, they would have stopped it. And the point that two lefties would leap to McCain’s defense should not be lost on the subservient sycophants that worship him. McCain appeals to those in the Republican Party with serf mentalities.

    The 2:1 ratio for liberal-biased media “debates/discussions” is part of the liberal playbook and typical locally of KAET EIGHT. KAET Horizon used it just last night for the segment “long term impact of the controversial law SB 1070.” Pitted against Republican state rep John Kavanagh were geriatric liberalist/pollster Bruce Merrill from the ASU Walter Cronkite Communist/Socialist School of Journalism, and stolen hubcap fence/Democratic state senator Steve Gallardo.

    As Timothy Schwartz more than held his own on Hardball, so did Kavanagh on Horizon. That said, conservative office holders and spokesmen should simply refuse to participate in any broadcast ‘debate’ where the deck has intentionally been stacked against them and providing twice the allotted time for the liberal argument. That is simply playing into the hands of the maniacal left’s modus operandi.

    We stood with Tim and A.J. At the State elections and back them up now, no guts no glory still applies today, Great Job Tim!!! We the People are Taxed Enough Already, it’s not over till we win.

  8. Angie says:

    Congratulations Tim, you did not appear, nor did you become overwhelmed by the two thugs. You did hold your ground indeed!

  9. Rob Haney says:

    I noted that Jon Kyl, Fife Symington and John McComish were outraged at the censures of McCain as was Fred Duval. Connecting the dots, does anything else really need to be said?

    Heck of a job Timothy. Loved the way you talked over “the thrill up my leg is gone” Mathews. Great to see him take some of his own medicine.

  10. Gary D. says:

    Any reason that you can think of for this “Guts Up Marine” to get a notice like this on my AZ Tea Party Web Page:?

    You’ve been suspended from Arizona Tea Party
    An administrator has removed you from this group.

    Would you suggest that I cancel my membership with that organization? I have been a member since 2010. Quite miffed. Can anyone think of why someone would do this?

  11. Joseph Hobbs says:

    Tim did a great job under severe pressure. Even when the maggot Mathews was trying to change the subject and make him look like a wacko bird with that question about ObamaCare …………. The lefty liberals all seem to be really hurt by our censure of their favorite RINO. And there seems to be a long list – worthy of making a few notes.

    Way to go Timothy – you are a WARRIOR for our CONSERVATIVE cause. Proud to know you sir.

    More good news:


    Last fall I heard John McComish refer to the conservative precinct committeeman against Medicaid Expansion as an “inconsequential minority.” I guess he’s changed his mind.

  13. 1776 says:

    Today’s Tea Party is an organization of American citizens that grew spontaneously out of the people themselves. That the Left and now even establishment Republicans speak of them so derisively demonstrates just how much contempt the “governing class” has for the common American. The battle for freedom is not between Republicans and Democrats, it’s between the common people and the Beltway class who’ve come to regard themselves as entitled rulers. John McCain is a poster boy for Beltway arrogance and a justification for term limits.
