McCain and Palin: Reunited and Feeling Good ("I support his position on immigration")
Fox News ^ | 2010-03-27

Posted on 03/30/2010 8:46:15 AM PDT by rabscuttle385

(snip)

VAN SUSTEREN: Governor Palin, if you were vice president today, what would you be telling a President McCain about what to do about immigration, if anything?

PALIN: I support his position on immigration. It all comes down to securing the border. And he who has actually proposed some solutions, the Obama administration does not want to listen to Senator McCain or any other Republican, and that, of course, leads to a greater problem that we have in Washington, D.C. And it's that lack of the new administration's ability and enthusiasm for listening to those on the other side of the aisle who have some good solutions that they want considered.

The entire thought needs to be considered.

Anybody who is blathering about how her Mccain support is just about her loyalty to Mccain and she should be given a pass....needs to reevaluate themselves after telling the world she supports that RINO on immigration.

The entire thought needs to be considered.

And in the proper context no less!

"In the long term, if you alienate the Hispanics,
you’ll pay a heavy price.
By the way, I think the fence is least effective.
But I’ll build the G****mned fence if they want it!"

U.S. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, FEB. 2007

"We need to sit down as Americans
and recognize these are God’s children as well.
And they need some protection under the law;
they need some of our love and compassion."

U.S. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, 28 NOV. 2007

"There are jobs that Americans will not do,
so we have to make it possible for someone to come
to this country to do a job that an American won’t do
and then go back to the country from where they came."

U.S. SEN. JOHN MCCAIN, 16 OCT. 2004

Palin is THE leading voice against the Obama agenda. She has done more than any person on the face of the earth to rally opposition to Obama and his administration. She is "target #1" for Obama and his attack dogs; yet, you are a 1-trick pony who attacks her as well any chance you get.

Do you enjoy doing Obama's bidding? I believe "USEFUL IDIOT" is the term that comes to mind.

he was right besiade her during the interview, talked about it 1st.

She was commenting on what McCain just stated, he was talking about securing the border nothing about amnesty, and she said she agreed with his position (what he just said).

Dear Sarah,

I do not support Amnesty John’s position. Block entry: yep, I support that.

Pathway to citizenship from this side of the border: nope, don’t support that.

You need to stop running with dogs. You’re getting fleas and their bites carry something that’s infecting the “common sense” lobe in your brain.

“You just never quit, do you Rabs? Nice try, but I can read the ‘whole’ thing.”

The ‘whole’ thing is at the link provided.

Here’s some....even worse comments by Palin...John McCain...a ‘man of his word’...give me a break.

“PALIN: Senator McCain is a man of his word. And I think what we could have counted on and looked forward to was the transparency that John also talked about in the campaign that’s so necessary in order to build more faith into our government. Constituents right now are feeling so disenfranchised and disenchanted because of the lack of transparency that the Obama administration has ushered in. John wouldn’t have done that.”

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,590022,00.html

It’s not Rabs words that should worry you, it’s Sarah Palin’s.

The REAl John McCain.

I'm not commenting on Palin's communication skills. I'm saying in this case, her "thought" is not an endorsement of McCain's entire immigration stance.

Another genius ploy by the very cerebral Sarah? If you think her lust for McCain is simply a repayment of debt, you are very simple. She is nothing more than a double talking politician and because of it she will never be our nominee. Sorry folks but you have hitched your wagon to the wrong horse.

VAN SUSTEREN: So how do you secure the border, Senator, because everyone keeps saying we need to secure the border? Do we build a big wall like they did — like the — you know, they did in East Europe? What do we do?

MCCAIN: Well, we need to have surveillance capabilities. An attempt that they were making just collapsed. The contractor failed miserably. But we need to do a lot more surveillance. And we could use a lot more high-tech. But to have the drug cartels’ violence spill over into the United States of America is a real possibility.

VAN SUSTEREN: Governor Palin, if you were vice president today, what would you be telling a President McCain about what to do about immigration, if anything?

PALIN: I support his position on immigration. It all comes down to securing the border. And he who has actually proposed some solutions, the Obama administration does not want to listen to Senator McCain or any other Republican, and that, of course, leads to a greater problem that we have in Washington, D.C. And it’s that lack of the new administration’s ability and enthusiasm for listening to those on the other side of the aisle who have some good solutions that they want considered.

When Palin says directly she supports amnesty of illegals then we can talk...and I will agree or if she says she supports Graham-Schumer.

she is in a hard spot...she can’t dump him without looking like a witch

Some sort of immigration law reform is worthy of consideration. But “the problem” will not be solved by securing the border. Palin doesn’t appear to be the right person to lead the GOP. Her instincts are to mimic whatever McCain says. Hello! You’re not running on the McCain ticket anymore!

In the article, you highlighted: “I support his position on immigration.”

But you did not highlight: “It all comes down to securing the border. And he who has actually proposed some solutions...”

All I’m saying is Palin further qualified that statement which isn’t exactly an endorsement of McCain’s position on immigration as a whole.

Well, nice try, but you’re ducking the question. I started to get very suspicious when she backed McCain vs. Hayworth. That’s a no brainer, and the answer is NOT McCain. But this comment is pretty clear that in fact she supports his amnesty program. I don’t now how else you can read that.

Huh? What better time to say, "Senator McCain and I agree on securing the border. We strongly disagree over what should happen to the 12 million illegals already here."

It's real simple, and someone with either a) principles, or b) courage would have said that . . . unless she really doesn't believe it, which I think is the case.

Keep supporting her. Here is what she says about illegal immigration:

Dec4, 2009 Interview with Lars Larson:

LARS: The amnesty proposal that was defeated in Congress — in your view, was that amnesty for illegals and would you back amnesty for a path to citizenship, as the current president calls it?

SARAH PALIN: No, I’m not for amnesty. Let’s ratchet this down quite simply to remember what we’re referring to. Illegal aliens are called “illegal” for a reason. We need to secure our borders and I am not for amnesty. And there are humane ways to deal with the 11-13 million illegal aliens who are in our country right now, but if they’re not going to follow the rules, they need to get out.

And he who has actually proposed some solutions...

That "he" she was referring to was one John McCain. Those "solutions" she was referring to include the infamous McCain-Kennedy amnesty bill, now reborn as Graham-Schumer.

I was thinking about something last night...all of McCain’s legislative moves in the senate....

McCain/Fiengold - BAD finance reform

McCain/Kennedy - BAD immigration policy

McCain/Durbin - taking vitamins/supplements from the public

The gang of 14...

Climate Change...

Of all of McCain’s bills that he produced or co sponsored, can ANYONE name just one that wasn’t in concert with a liberal democrat???
