Skip to comments.McCain Hurls F-Bomb at Cornyn Over Immigration Bill

Major Garrett just mentioned this on Fox News. Evidently Cornyn was angry at McCain for leaving him out of the loop. McCain responded with a profanity-laced retort.
Another vote for "Quote of the Day!"
WASHINGTONU.S. Sen. John Cornyn, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, made the following statement today regarding the announcement by Senator Kennedy and others that an agreement has been reached on comprehensive immigration reform legislation:
While I appreciate the hard work by my colleagues as we spent countless hours negotiating this very difficult issue, I have serious concerns with the principles outlined in todays announcement.
I simply cannot, and will not, support any legislation that repeats the mistakes of the 1986 amnesty. So we have to make a basic determination: Will this bill restore respect for our laws? Or will it have the opposite effect, and encourage still more disregard for our immigration and border security laws, placing us within a few years in the same untenable position were now in?
I believe todays announcement is somewhat premature because specific legislative text has yet to be drafted on a number of key details. Until I have the opportunity to review this text, I will withhold from making more detailed comments. Clearly, however, there will be an opportunity to introduce amendments to this legislation, and I expect there will be a number of areas where that will be necessary.
Another vote for "Quote of the Day!"
I’d vote for Hillary before McCain. At least the GOPers in Congress would feel obliged to block Hillary’s nutty legislation.

Take a minute (better take an hour) and re-visit a classic.
Re: Your attempt to shut down political free speech on the Internet
John McCain, you treasonous bastard, I challenge you or any of your traitorous cohorts to find even one thread, one post, one paragraph, one sentence or even one lousy word posted to this web site that is not fully protected by the First Amendment!
And I will extend that to one chapter, one group, one poster or any group of posters on this forum. Name one assembly, petition, letter, protest, meeting or rally convened, filed, submitted, attended or supported by members of this forum that is not 100% protected and guaranteed as free speech or free assembly by the First Amendment!
McCain is imploding. If he wants to sucker us into this he needed to be quiet. Stupid. How can this guy win the GWOT, if he can’t control himself when things are rough for him?
Great - simply GREAT!
And I even "get it"!
Dang link didn't follow through.
Click here for the thread in question;
Oh please oh please let there be video or audio of the incident.
Always a gentleman, that John! Of course, he’s a war hero, so that excuses any behavior, any loss of temper. I’d sure like to have someone with his temperament in the White House. We need a president who is inclined to blow up all the time. < /S>
What if the criminal aliens, crooks, terrorists and narco-gangsters dont want amnesty? Why should they? Wouldnt they have to pay taxes? How can you force criminals to become citizens? Why would you? If these people really wanted to be real citizens they wouldnt use phony IDs.
NO AMNESTY for Employers or Employees!
WWJT - What Would Jerry Think?
I wont vite for him either
I thought I heard Garrett report that McCain was mad a Cornyn because McCain felt the bill had changed from the original McCain-Kennedy bill that he worked on. Cornyn said that it was McCain's fault for missing all the negotations because he was too busy running for President. That's when McCain dropped the F-bomb on Cornyn.
People who do not blink when they are speaking are cuckoo.
LOL, i was thinking “fiddledeedee. :)
Well, now I won’t vote for him for sure.
Oops. Meant to say Howard Dean. LOL.
