McCain "MY Friends" alert!
The Volokh Conspiracy ^ | April 12, 2006 at 1:07am | Eugene Volokh

Posted on 02/08/2008 12:33:12 PM PST by ScratInTheHat

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."

Don't listen to McCain's promises of the moment: observe his actions.

This is the man John McCain chose to be his "Hispanic Outreach Director." Hernandez is a verified traitor. Born in Dallas he decided as an adult to become a dual-national Mexican citizen. His last job was serving as Mexican President Vicente Fox's "American Reconquista Director."

Hernandez believes all Mexicans and Mexican-Americans in the USA should become dual citizens and consider themselves Mexicans first, "to the 8th generation."

The "New American Pioneers" proclaimed in his book are the illegal alien invaders he urges to become settlers in the USA.

And this is the man McCain chose for his "Hispanic Outreach Director." In the past week he was asked about this choice, and he said he chose Hernandez because he agrees with his positions.

Yet out of the other side of his mouth he says "He has heard us" and he will "Secure the border first."

Juan Shamnesty McCain is precisely a treacherous liar.

McCain is a lying sack of sh*t. He will lose in November, and deservedly so. The Republican party has betrayed us. Captain Queeg will raise your taxes, grant citizenship to 20+ million illegals, impose an extremist environmental agenda, and more. No Conservative should consider voting for McCain in November. Lets hope Obama is the Democrat nominee, otherwise get used to the sound of “President Clinton” again.

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. That’s a lock.

When McCain says “my friends” cover your backside. There is no way McCain is that detached from reality. Even with rich heiress money, he has to realize that $50/hour picking lettuce jobs would get filled rather quickly by American citizens. I have done a hell of a lot worse for a hell of a lot less.

Nop, but I definitely wont like JMCC cutting a deal with Democrats on social security to raise the cap on payroll tax. The end of the Republican party for good.

I wont like them any more than I’d like the liberals that Captain Queeg would appoint to the Supreme Court. Justice Alito was “too conservative” for McCain.

Re SCOTUS: Do you think that Republicans will win every election for the rest of history?

“Drink RINO arsenic Koolaid, it’ll kill you slower than ‘Rat cyanide Koolaid” is a great new party slogan, but I’m going to pass this time.

So McCain’s favorite term is “My friends”. The she-devils is “you know”. Anybody know what Husseins favorite term is? I think we’ll find out its “Allah Akbar”. Just a guess.

Unfortunately, there isn’t one. I’m already down $10.00 betting my niece-in-law that there would be a GOP president next year. Of course, that was back when McCain seemed an impossibility, and Fred Thompson, like Spring, was in the air.

Whoda thunk?

McCain must be stopped. He will finish the complete destruction of the conservative movement and the GOP, which Dubya started. If he loses, we have a good chance to get it back.

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?

And still people think this pro-amnesty idiot is deserving of conservatives' votes.

I get the sense that those chumps would vote for Hillary if she had an 'R' by her name.

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.

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.

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.
