Candidate donation solicitations speak McVolumes

Earth to candidates: We won’t be your “friend” unless you show conservative credentials

As the FEC deadline for the third fundraising quarter approaches tonight, political activists have been inundated with donation solicitations from candidates. There are the low-key requests and the fever pitched, agitated pleas — packing messages of doom unless the money rolls in.

The winner for employing the most desperate begging has to be Jeb!, who has had his wife, other family members and now his son trying to raise cash from the folks. His haughty sounding PAC, “Right to Rise,” speaks to his idea of expected ascendancy. The lobbyists are on board, but are getting edgy at his mostly single digit polling numbers.

George P., the Texas Land Commissioner and the latest Bush-in the-political-dynasty-wings, is begging on behalf of his seriously plunging dad. It won’t help. As SRAZ commenter, State Delegate so succinctly noted recently, Jeb is ready for the “political embalming fluid.” McCain has been complimentary regarding Jeb Bush‘s potential, which could account for his use of the word, ”Friends” in his solicitations.

Marco Rubio, the slick-talking, pro-amnesty Gang Of Eight member, who continues to join forces with John McCain in blaming Islamic terrorism on oppression, has a not-so-novel approach to his appeals for cash. Rubio addresses his prospective donors as “Friends.”

Why would any candidate seek to emulate this?

Donald Trump, able to self fund, is not imploring his followers for donations.

Dr. Ben Carson wisely addresses his supporters as “Fellow Conservatives,” as he talks about the dangers of political correctness which “prevent us from speaking honestly about our challenges, our differences and our culture.” This brain surgeon knows a thing or two about how the human mind functions.

He’s undoubtedly keenly aware few of us enjoy being so presumptuously addressed in McCain-speak.

    As a supporter of Ted Cruz, it would appear to me that the Eastern establishment and the online news programs, including FOX, have dropped Cruz from their mainstream list of candidates. When they talk about the top five or six candidates in the polls, they leave Cruz out and put Bush in. Every time I look at the polls, Cruz is beating Bush. Is this the Eastern part of the country letting us bumpkins know that we should be supporting Bush?

    Carly Fiorina is another who is closely tied to the atrocious John McCain. She was a big campaign cash ‘bundler” for him.

    According to an Federal Election Commission rule, her super PAC’s use of “Carly” has to be an acronym, to keep it from being too similar to her campaign’s official name, “Carly for President.” So CARLY now stands for “Conservative Authentic Responsive Leadership for You.” Believe that and I’ve got a bridge to sell you. We can’t be conned again.

    Here is the real Carly Fiorina speaking about McCain and Hillary Clinton, politicians she admires:

    The comments on the article above – John McCain Touts Jeb Bush’s 2016 Potential – are so anti-McCain, it’s fun to read. I hope Arizona voters finally throw him out of office. The rest of the country would appreciate it.

    Since dropping out of the Republican party, the begging has decreased. I voluntarily send campaign donations to Conservatives like Kelli Ward.

    We left the East Coast yesterday not knowing how lucky we were to miss the heavy rains they’re having today. Good to get back to sunny, gun-loving, pretty conservative Arizona!

    • Arizona Conservative Guy says:

      Welcome back! Arizona needs more conservatives. The East Coast doesn’t appreciate us.

      • Conservative Since Birth says:

        Thanks! They don’t appreciate conservatives. Visited friends in Vermont who are registered Republicans – but they’re so liberal especially on social issues like gay marriage – they nearly exploded over the woman in KY who refused to marry gays because of religious beliefs. (I feel the gays should have gone to another courthouse and not persecuted her.) That progressive culture has rubbed off. They’re also big on education-spending.
        Yep – we’re still friends.

    Congressman Paul Gosar is using his boycott of the leftist political pope in his fundraising. He’s a lifelong Catholic who says “When a pope chooses to act and talk like a leftist politician, then he can expect to be treated like one.” Gosar expressed his disappointment that the pope didn’t use his time in the US addressing religious liberty and pro-life issues, both areas where he says church teaching and U.S. Constitutional principles are in complete alignment. Instead the anti-capitalist pope talked about American greed, global warming and hypocritically told us we should welcome our invading hordes, when he keeps the walled Vatican ethnically pure.

    I don’t live in Gosar’s district but he deserves praise for truthfully addressing this and boycotting the congressional speech. I’m sending him a donation for stepping forward on this issue, which couldn’t have been easy for him personally and must have alienated some of his CD 3 constituent sheeple

    This Jeb Bush campaign ad, “Todos Somos Americanos” or “We Are All Americans, “ tells where he is on illegals. He and his wife Columba speak only Spanish in their home. She didn’t even become an American citizen until it was required of her in order to vote for her father-in-law for president.

    Just saw this on today:
    Jeb is being funded by a Chinese guy who is business partners with
    George Soros.

    Earlier this evening, I received an email addressing me as “Friends,” from Congressman David Schweikert. First, I do not live in either his district or Trent Frank’s, yet each are sending me solicitation requests. Like a lovesick schoolboy, Schweikert assures me he “still needs” me. .But then he gets to the nitty gritty of his message, telling me if I send him “an online contribution in the next few minutes it will mean we (is that both of us together?) can continue to fight to save our country.” Now that’s heavy stuff. “At midnight tonight, our fiscal books close,” he warns. ZOWIE!!

    McCain’s amnesty buddy Marco Rubio, who I wouldn’t support under any conditions, promises me a “new American century,” if I just send him some dough. He also addresses me as “Friend.”

    None of these people are my friends and neither am I theirs. How they got my email address is anyone’s guess. I’d like to get off their lists.
