McLosers featured at Mesa campaign rally

McCain’s “surprise special guest” revealed in early desperation move

No doubt the suspense has been unbearable for recipients of John McCain’s emails. They’ve been teased and had their curiosity piqued with notices about a “surprise special guest” coming to Mesa, Dec. 12, to give the recycled candidate, who will be 80 by election day, a boost for another 6-year term. 

Who could such a person be? Maybe Sarah Palin, McCain’s former running mate who was savaged by his 2008 campaign operatives as he fell in the polls. It’s safe to say no Republican with a viable current campaign would want the taint that accompanies the toxic, censured senator, who spitefully retaliated against conservatives by teaming up with Obama donors to oust them as elected precinct committeemen. In another move against conservatives, McCain also colluded with liberal Democrat Carl Levin in pressuring Obama IRS’s Lois Lerner to target tea party groups for scrutiny in an effort to rein in their political influence.

It’s not a surprise that John McCain is Number Six on Roll Call’s roster of the 10 most vulnerable U.S. senators.

The Mesa venue isn’t filling as quickly as McCain’s handlers had hoped, which is another  embarrassment to his already bruised ego. Prior to the censures, while running for president, he barely carried the state of Arizona against Obama, with only a slim 8.5 percent margin.

Since the event momentum stalled, coming nowhere near the Phoenix overflow capacity crowds generated by the appearances of Donald Trump or Ben Carson, the secret guest had to be revealed a couple of weeks early. The email featuring Thanksgiving greetings somberly states that “tickets won’t last, so be sure to tell your friends and family to reserve space today!”

So who is this major draw being brought in to help John McCain? None other than another presidential loser — Mitt Romney.

There is even a plaintive plea, desperately  asking recipients to “share the message with others” and “connect to see which of your Facebook friends are going to join John McCain and Mitt Romney.

If you’re a conservative, the unequivocal answer would be, “Not many!”

Romney might help in bringing in Mesa voters, many of whom are also members of the LDS faith. And though he ultimately lost to Obama, he carried Arizona in 2012 by 10 percent — a better showing than the not-so-favored “favorite son.”  McCain has been in D.C. doing his dirty work (video) over three decades. Seeing Red AZ is supporting Dr. Kelli Ward in the 2016 senate race.  Check out her credentials and issues pages and see why.

    Remember when RINO and self-declared ‘Maverick” John McCain thought THIS was a winning message? It sure gave him the advantage he needed to win the presidency. He ought to find this supporter and bring her to the Mesa event. It will be just what he needs put him over the top again!

      This ad tells us all we need to know about the caliber of the man. He’s nothing but trouble. His partner in crime, Lindsey Grahamnesty, was making the case the other day for taking in Syrian ‘refugees’ – he didn’t sound much different than Obama on that subject.

      • Seen It All says:

        McCain originally wanted to run for the CD1 seat as a Democrat. He had to be talked out of doing so by members of the then powerful “Phoenix 40,” who knew that trying to replace nationally and locally respected conservative US Rep. John Rhodes with a Democrat would never fly. At the time McCain was an attractive candidate as a returning Vietnam war POW, even though he had just carpetbagged his way into Arizona.

  2. Former GOP PC says:

    McCain’s emailed ad for this event says it’s “Paid for by Friends of John McCain.” I have no idea why I’m on the list to receive his junk. I haven’t voted for him since he first ran for the House in the former CD 1 when John Rhodes, an AZ conservative who served as House Minority Leader, retired in 1982. I’d be curious who these “friends” are. One thing I know for certain: They’re not conservatives.

    My wife and I were part of McCain’s purge of conservative elected precinct committeemen who worked for the AZ GOP for years. We’ve since re-registered as Independents and neither of us would vote for McCain under any circumstances. We volunteered our time and energies besides donating to Republican candidates and the state and county parties. We now spend our resources enjoying vacations.

  3. Frankly Speaking says:

    John McCain is so mentally feeble, he doesn’t even know who Mitt Romney is. Don’t believe me? Watch this news clip. In a few seconds, you get the full picture. But at least he was honest in using Barack Obama’s name as the one he actually believed “would turn this country around.”

    • Conservative Since Birth says:

      O.M.G. Pathetic. Yet the news media seems to think it was funny. If Ted Cruz, et al made such a major gaffe – they’d be on it forever.

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    It seems that Mitt Romney, the “severely conservative” liberal Republican is being used by the GOP establishment to “maybe run for president” in 2016 if those 3 ‘outsiders’ gain traction. Also, he’s “advising” the establishment candidates for 2016. Next month, he’ll help out a fellow RINO McCain to maybe garner votes of the Mormon community. I held my nose and voted against Obama in ’08 and held it again when I voted against Obama in ’12. I’m another who has never voted for McCain for Senate and I won’t do it yet again. Kelli Ward could handle that old, underhanded coot quite well. He’s ‘low energy’ up against her.

    Mitt Romney?!?!?! Well…THERE’S a surprise…(yawn)…

    So…what…25~50 mcStainiacs’ll show up? Where’s that crate of rotten eggs & tomatoes? Hey john…romney L-O-S-T…OH!
    …just like you which, in all honesty, probably was in fact a Good thing. But I DO recall that you were th’ one who said, “…we have Nothing to fear from barack obama being president!” Kinda’ ‘telling’, huh?

    In case you missed it:

    Published on Thanksgiving day, on, was this column regarding Kelli Ward and John McCain:

  7. Hagar says:

    I’m LDS yet still had to hold my nose to vote for Romney. No allegiance my fellow may have for Romney will in the least translate as support for McCain except for the predictable RINOs like Jerry Lewis and Bob Worsley who teamed with Democrats to oust conservatives.
