and good for her
And John Hawkins at Right Wing News absolutely has the goods on him. The money quote is:
So, with that in mind, imagine my chagrin when I saw these comments in the New York Times last night (emphasis mine).
He added: “I believe we have to secure our borders, and I think most Americans agree with that, because it’s a matter of national security. But we must enact comprehensive immigration reform. We must make it a top agenda item if we don’t do it before, and we probably won’t, a little straight talk, as of January 2009.”
Mr. McCain asked others on the panels for suggestions about how to “better mobilize American public opinion” behind the notion of comprehensive immigration reform.
Put very simply: John McCain is a liar. He’s a man without honor, without integrity, who could not have captured the Republican nomination had he run on making comprehensive immigration a top priority of his administration. Quite frankly, this is little different from George Bush, Sr. breaking his “Read my lips, no new taxes pledge,” except that Bush’s father was at least smart enough to wait until he got elected before letting all of his supporters know that he was lying to them.
And he’s going to destroy the Republican Party – which seems to be his whole purpose ever since George W. Bush cleaned his clock in 2000. Its all personal with him.
And he’s a big fat liar.
From Arnold Ahlert at Political Mavens:
Borders. Our borders remain as porous as ever, and the virtual fence is a high-priced, “high tech” disaster. A PC screwing of gargantuan proportions–and the American public knows it. The PC-ers think they can “finesse” this one by browbeating us with name calling (xenophobia, racism, etc.) or appeals to our “reasonableness.”
The war on terror. Only a moron–or someone who can’t see beyond his politically correct nose–could look at all the acts of terror committed before and after 9/11–and come to the conclusion that terrorism is “an exaggerated threat.” PC-ers still think we can “jaw-jaw” with suicidal maniacs who boast that their principle advantage over us is they love death while we love life. What level of atrocity it would take to blow the cobwebs out of these peoples’ brains is anyone’s guess. 3000 people exterminated in an hour-and-a-half wasn’t enough. Their threshold? 56 million people died in WWll, beginning a year after Neville Chamberlain, the historical epitome of political correctness, secured “peace in our time.” Apparently we have a long way to go.
There’s more good stuff – go read it all.
A solution isn’t very clearcut either. I have compassion, but there’s got to be limits at some point. There’s only so much UTMB can do. This problem is bigger than them. Heck…it’s bigger than Texas!
If this wasn’t a government agency, but instead a private company, all those in charge would be fired immediately. And yet, this is twice the success these clowns had in 2006 so its great news.Pathetic
