Are you kidding me? John McCain’s new ad “Complete The Danged Fence”

Bob Bennett getting kicked to the curb this weekend must be making a whole lot of RINOs awfully nervous. They know that their gooses are cooked and are now rushing to do their best “I am a real conservative” impersonations. This is the only reason I can think of why John McCain, "King of the Amnesty People", would ever try to pander this shamelessly.


John McCain’s desperation to get re-elected is really starting to show. First he said he was never a maverick and now he is trying to play Macho Minuteman!  Go away, McAmnesty, just go away.

There is not enough popcorn for this show. Watching McAmnesty turn himself into a pretzel trying to cya is a sight to behold.

Actually, this is not really a flip-flop. McCain has been trumpeting securing the border for a few years now:

McCain said he listened to what the public was saying when the legislation failed -- and responded accordingly. "I said, OK. We'll secure the borders, but after we secure the borders, we'll have a temporary worker program, we'll have to address the 12 million people here illegally, and I think the best way is the proposal that we had," McCain said.

"It's not a switch in position. I support the same solution. But we've got to secure the borders first," he added. Given the public outcry, McCain predicted Congress again would fail if it tried to pass broad reforms without ensuring secure borders.

"You've got to respond to the people," he said. "If your job is to succeed in addressing a major issue then you've got to do what's necessary to succeed. We failed."......... "I got the message," he said to clapping. "We will secure the borders first and then go on to other issues."

Not sure where he still stands on things like amnesty, but I'm not surprised that he supports securing the border.

McCain's moral compass is so messed up at this point I doubt he can make it to his car these days.

One of the most useful tools in the box.

I still think this doorknob ran his campaign like he did so he would DELIBERATELY lose to Obama. He didn't want it - you could see it in his eyes.

From July of 2008:

John McCain warned Mexicans that more border walls are needed before he attempts to overhaul U.S. immigration laws again...

I believe we must have comprehensive immigration reform. The American people want our borders secured first," McCain said during a news conference in Mexico City.

"That will require some walls. It will require virtual fences. It will require high-technology equipment. We must secure our borders, and then we will address the issue of comprehensive immigration reform."

Maybe someone who truly have the will, the drive and determination might be a better candidate then John. Otherwise the dang-fence would just be a very expensive political project for tax payers.

McCain really knows how to pour on the conservatism during election time. Too bad he doesn't keep with it the rest of the time.

Yes, McCain did come around to securing the border first after the beating he took for supporting comprehensive immigration reform under Bush. However, it is what to do about the illegals who are already here that gets McCain in trouble.

Isn't that every RINO's problem?

You have no idea how often I thought the same thing. I think McCain did not want to stand in the way of history and electing the first black president. He should have been more concerned with what type of president Obama would be, rather than what color he was.

That is the problem with McCain. Is he for real or is he just saying what he needs to just to get elected?

Mats said...

Poor Johnny! He's feeling the heat and NOW decides to go right-ish.

Too late, Johnn-o! You are history. Your time is up. You have served your country well during the war, but your time is past. Move on, now.

Commenting on a comment.Sorry,Clifton B.,I know that's your job. Interesting, what you and Angie Lee said about McCain not wanting to be the guy who got in the way. You know, I never thought of that.

McCain was the reason that I left the Republican Party. The problem is, there's nowhere for a legitimate conservative to go.

JennsR said...

We do NOT want McCain to go people!!! Look at the complete blowhard salivating to jump back into Congress. JD leaves us vulnerable, perhaps he is why the democrats are trumping for him. If JD wins, the dems have the same chances of jumping into his seat like Mitchell did last time JD was there. JD is unethical and will and I say again, WILL mess up again. He does not have it in him to stay clean on moral and social issues.

Mats:

McCain's "I am a real conservative" song and dance is beyond old. You are right, he served his country well and now he can serve it again by riding off into the sunset.

Oh, don't worry about commenting on comments. That is how discussions are made.

Yeah, I got the feeling that McCain was laying down so Obama could win the second he took Rev. Right off the table. I think the reason why the McCain camp wanted to sabotage Palin is because she was too damn effective. Notice when she had the spotlight they were winning?

You go back to the Republican Party and you reclaim it! Start by weeding out RINOs, run as committee chair or precinct captain. Get involved and create the needed change. There is nothing wrong with the Republican Party that a couple of elections cannot fix.

I have to admit, I have heard a few discouraging things about JD Hayworth. Truth be told the two times I saw him on the news, I was NOT impressed. However, John McCain has cost us dearly one time too many. We may have to take a 6 year risk on Hayworth, just to be rid of McCain.

I believe McCain has learned his lesson. You can no for sure that McCain understands, we the conservatives are not playing any more games with him. Our main focus is to win this seat. McCain is pretty much a sure winner. Lets not throw out the baby with the bath water.
