McCain’s New Ad Attacks Teabagger Hayworth’s Birtherism

February 24, 2010

(ChattahBox)—Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) is getting primaried by teapartier J.D. Hayworth and he is desperately trying to show his right-wing bonafides to hang on to his Senate seat. But McCain’s pandering is becoming painful to watch. Earlier this week, the maverick ridiculously claimed that he was misled by then-Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, regarding the TARP program, and that’s why he supported it. How far right will he go to appeal to a group of confused angry populists? At least McCain’s latest ad targets the conspiracy theorist birther fringe of the teaparty movement, which Hayworth is a part of. And the attack ad even has an entertaining cameo appearance by crazy Birther Queen Orly Taitz.

The ad starts off with the statement: “These are serious economic times–Yet some are consumed by conspiracies.” Top birthers Orly Taitz and Philip Berg are shown spewing their claims that President Obama is not a natural born citizen. And then Hayworth is shown spouting his birther nonsense, suggesting that the issue of Obama’s legitimacy has something to do with “identity theft.”

Watch it:

    John, you are playing with fire with this ad. Many of the people who will see this ad will AGREE with the birthers. You are giving them ammunition to shoot you with.

    Wow, McCain hasn’t learned a single thing since running for president. It is clear McCain could care less about the US Constitution. The facts are pretty clear. Obama’s father had a Kenyan flag and a British flag, Obama’s mother had an American Flag, that means Obama has an American Flag, a Kenyan Flag, and a British Flag. Mr. McCain, please tell the American people how Obama could possibly be a Natural Born Citizen as required by the United States Constitution to be eligible for President? You can’t Sir, you simply cannot. The FACTS conclude Obama is NOT A NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. Where is this conspiracy you speak of? It seems you are the conspiracist Mr. McCain!

    Dear Wow: Your idiocy is proof that the American school system can’t cure stupidity. Tell me, how was Geroge Washington, Thomas Jefferson, or John Adams a “natural born citizen” shicne their parents were *all* British citizens? And explain why US law states that a person who is born in the United States or its Territories is a citizen if that’s not how it works? Oh, wait. I forgot. Your rabid bigotry and racism requires you Birthers to ignore logic, the law, and the facts in order to allow you to attack the President without actually *saying* that you are terrified that a half-Black man is the President.

    Please go back to Nazi Germany where you belong.
