Sen. McCain on Jobs No American Citizens Want, Even at $50/Hour: The comments to one of my posts pointed to this claim by Sen. McCain:
[Speaking to the AFL-CIO's Building and Construction Trades Department, McCain took] questions, including a pointed one on his immigration plan.
McCain responded by saying immigrants were taking jobs nobody else wanted. He offered anybody in the crowd $50 an hour to pick lettuce in Arizona.
Shouts of protest rose from the crowd, with some accepting McCain's job offer.
"I'll take it!" one man shouted.
McCain insisted none of them would do such menial labor for a complete season. "You can't do it, my friends."

“The unfair and unequal status of permanent Z-visas will then become the next great civil rights struggle. Their position will be compared to Jim Crow and apartheid. They will get full citizenship right within 5-10 years of getting Z-visas. Thats a lock.”
Your foresight is dead on.
Come on people. This is a worst quotes post and you aren’t posting any!
Post the worst “My Friends” quote you can find!
Whatever platitudinal rhetoric will get him elected without having to elaborate on the "how ya gonna do it?" variable in his fantasy-land answers.
I agree. I am going to support Obama in the hopes that if he is their nominee, he will stop McCain. I can respect a liberal who admits what he is, even if I disagree with him. McCain is a liar who pretends to be a conservative. Captain Queeg does not deserve to be President.
McCain voted for Breyer and Ginsburg. He also thinks Alito is "too conservative". Maybe McCain will resurrect the "Gang of 14" and circumvent the Constitution upon himself?
I get the sense that those chumps would vote for Hillary if she had an 'R' by her name.
That one requires no crystal ball, that’s for sure. That’s a cinch.
I think McCain can beat either Obama or the Beast. Obama has no resume and is a far leftist. McCain beats him on experience and centrism. The Beast is reviled and her husband is a walking punchline. McCain beats them on character and integrity.
Please note: I am not a McCain supporter and I do not necessarily believe he truly has the above-listed qualities, I just think he can make the sale to a plurality of the voters in enough States to get an Electoral College majority.
McCain has the GOP nomination locked up. Do you think the country will be better off if the next President is Obama or Hillary?
“How do you think youll like the Supreme Court Justices President Obama appoints?
Probably about as well as you are going to like the ones McCain gets through a heavily, Democratic Senate. He is scamming you when he says he will nominate conservative judges. He may run a few through to get them shot down, so he can say “Okay, I tried,” but in the end he is going to team up with his buddies Kennedy, Hillary and Lieberman.
His hispanic outreach guy, Juan, says “my friend” also. I wonder if he picked it up from him. It’s sickening to hear it from both of them. My friend, ugh.
Yes. The issue is really more about what’s going to happen to the GOP and whether it will from now on be a Democrat Party II, or a conservative party. A McCain win would solidify the former for decades to come. A McCain loss, although marginally worse than Obama/Hillary in the short term (though I’m not sure even about that), would enable the conservatives to once again take over the GOP and lead it back to its original agenda, as in 1994.
I just don't see why this is so. If McCain wins with Conservative support, and Conservatives stick to their principles and oppose Pres. McCain when necessary, then why will Conservatives be weakened during the 2012 and 2016 primaries as compared to there being a 'Rat President?
Because if conservatives blindly support liberal traitor McCain, then we will get more of the same from the GOP, forever and ever. Conservatives can “oppose” all they want - it is irrelevant. The only thing that ultimately matters is the VOTES. It is only by losing an election that the RINO axis can lose power and conservatives can come to the fore.
My friends, I believe global climate change is real, and I think it's a major issue worldwide and in this country. I have been at odds with the Bush administration on this issue for a long time. Suppose that there's no such thing as climate change and we adopt clean technologies. We go to nuclear power. We develop automobiles that go 200 miles before you have to plug them in. We go to hybrids. We use ethanol. There's a broad array of steps we can take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Suppose we do these things and we're wrong about global warming. Then all we've done is given our children a cleaner world. But suppose we are right-that climate change is an urgent issue-and we do nothing. I think the consequences are obvious and would be devastating.
At least he’s not calling us “Comrades” yet.
Exactly. Bienvenidos a Amexica.
McVain's won't be any better, for the following reasons:
He said publicly that he wouldn't have appointed someone like Alito "becasue that guy wears his conservatism on his sleeve."
He was the leader of the Gang of 14, which was set up to bvlock use of the "nuclear option." This allowed Dimmycraps to block President Bush's most conservative judicial nominees.
The kind of strict constructionist judges we're looking for are the klind most likely to overturn McCain-Feingold if given the chance.
A Democratic-controlled Congress will never allow judges like Alito, Scalia, or Thomas to get confirmed. Reid will make sure that the Judiciary Committee bottles them up until they withdraw.
OTOH, the Senate Republicans will (hopefully) filibuster any Far Left wacko judges that Obama or Hitlery sends up.
Remember, it was Republicans who gave us Stevens, Souter, Blackmun, Brennan, Earl Warren (who really should hve been impeached), and others.
