Skip to comments.RINO McCain was the last person that needed to appear on Fox News today to pitch "immigration" bill
Posted on 06/30/2013 1:06:27 PM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist
It was he and progressive Democrat Sen. Schumer that appeared today on "Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace" and seemed to tag-team on why the "immigration" (cough) bill should be supported.
I wonder who ran faster to get in front of the lens/microphone?
A vote for S. 744 or a vote to send this to conference will end any chance of Republicans winning the presidency in 2016, given that it does not have wide-spread Tea-Party, Conservative & Libertarian support, and does not have the support of Conservative/Libertarian-leaning Independents. 2012 all over again... And thus:
They WILL be energized to primary RINOs (like Rubio, Graham, Alexander, Collins, etc, etc) in the midterms, but will NOT be energized to support the almost inevitable RINO that seems to always get the GOP presidential nomination.
Rush Limbaugh basically said that Schumer used Rubio to neutralize him, and that because Rubio was so loved by Tea Partiers that they would be loathe to criticize Rubio.
Non-RINOs in the Senate voted against the Senate bill because it is an obvious fact that it does not secure the border first (which could be done during the 2.5 years that this bill comes to fruition, when the Senate bill actually suspends border enforcement) and because this bill is not worker-visa based, but is familial-based, allowing more illegals to ultimately come in on coattails.
The bill also does not "Trust but Verify," does not have two new national security visa screening programs, does not have congressional votes on border security for five years to ensure that border security is maintained as this program rolls along, and ultimately lands the nation back in the same place it is now as the worker visa program decreases the number of agricultural visas (isn't inherently market-based), thus encouraging more and more illegals to come every year and giving us another 12 million illegals a decade from now.
What say you?
If Fox is going to be fair and balanced, they’ve got to have the left represented. That would justify McCain being there.
That dirtbag ran so far to the right when he ran for reelection. Amazing anyone could believe the clown. He’s a lying POS.
I am Juan McCain and I approve this message.
listen to this assclown ..........
There is no justification for this, and most of America knows it. It's all propaganda.
FOX is not being fair and balanced, they're merely following through on an agreement to do the GOP bidding is all. The GOPe thinks getting these ‘thorny’ issues off the table will insure them votes they otherwise would not have gotten if illegals and homosexuals remained an issue.
FOX fair and balanced? Sorry, no sale.
Although it’s well known that he’s not a big friend of his own party, and maybe even not such a big fan of his own country, I now wonder how his and his wife’s big beer business will further prosper with the influx of cheap labor. And, of course, with obamacare on the horizon, prosper even further by making all employees part-time and dodging the health care bullet. Add all that to the handsome “campaign donations” he’s undoubtedly received, and you get a pretty tidy fortune, maybe enough to settle into the same class as his good friends Kerry and the Kennedys.
Schumer and McCain, both of exact like mind. Yet they’ll call it bipartisan and say we’ve heard from both sides, just because McCain puts an “r” next to his name.
They don’t care if the brand is discontinued, the agenda moves forward.
Limbaugh admitted that? I know Schumer and Memnendez did say that Rubio had neutralized Limbaugh. LINK. I am not a regular Limbaugh listener now.
Easy to despise this despicable idiot whose only claim to fame was that he crashed three Navy fighter jets. The last time he was captured and didn’t fire his pistol and die like a man.
(I’m a veteran and I can say and observe this!)
Any damned fool can get captured by the enemy. It takes a real man to fight until he’s either killed a few or died in the attempt. I have no regard for this piece of crap.
Maybe it’s good for exactly the reason that he’s so despised.
I could barely stand to listen to the first segment, but Trey Gowdy was well worth waiting for - and listening to!
My wife and I have concluded that it is time to leave the GOP and go Independent.
After the vote this week, I sent a letter to the RNC with the RNC Platform Survey which I received a couple of weeks ago.
My letter was a scathing rebuke of the 14 RHINOS and the RNC. The survey I wrote on with a red marker in big letters: “no amnesty” “no abortion” “no RHINOS”
I addressed the letter and survey to the chairman.
Just watching the re-run on Fox at 6pm EST....
Schumer thinks he’s got it ALL figured out and predicts passage in the House...
McLame is freakin’ pathetic, bumbling, sucking up and totally ineffective...
Waiting or Gowdy to blow these asses out of the water and bringing some sense to the issue...
Man I’m pissed and if I hear one more reference to the “future” of the Pubbie Party, I’ll throw something...
McLame calls it “unprecedented bi-partisan agreement”, dontchaknow so it must be good...
SS claims many important voting blocs support reform-----Catholics, evangelicals for example.
But Schumer makes a huge mistake---thinking voters will cast their ballots based on the single issue of reform.
Yes, real Repubs (not RINOS) need to step up to the plate and reassure conservative voters-----but in no way will liberal/progressive Dems get votes based solely on reform.
Repubs need to start mining disaffected voters who are incensed about Obama's antics. The stench from this admin's crimes/screw-ups stretches far and wide:
<><> there's the Benghazi stench
<><> Hillary's state dept's coverup of sex scandals---obstructing justice---scrubbing investigations
<><> Holder's DOJ stenches (AP--Rosen--monitoring USSC and Congress' Verizon blackberries)
<><> stench-a-rama: IRS targeting (enraging legions of IRS haters)
<><> IRS stealing 60 thousand medical records
<><> HHS' Sibelius strong-arming Obamacare insurance providers for money
<><> NSA snooping---infuriating millions of young twitter/facebook users
<><> IRS sending $45 Million/that's 32,000 EITC refunds to illegals at ONE address.
<><> Letting Snowden globe-trot w/ US secrets
<><> EPA using phantom email accounts
<><> O/Holder Fast and Furious gun-running to savage drug cartels, got two American border patrol agents killed
<><> Ohaha giving 5 million top security clearance---w/ no oversight as to the Ntl security implications
<><> O using drones to shoot down Americans
<><> the continuing TSA travesties.
<><> Solyndra and other green money-laundries.
Why shouldn’t he be on TV? His side is winning. Why show a loser?
