Senator McCain Urges Citizens To Get Involved (MCCAIN FLIP FLOP ON BORDER FENCE)
The Tribune-News, Holbrook, Ariz. / Silver Creek Herald, Snowflake, Ariz. ^ | 2010-04-14 | Linda Kor

McCain went on to discuss border concerns, expressing his frustration regarding the recent death of Douglas area rancher Robert Krentz, who authorities suspect was killed by drug smugglers.

“The border is not secure and there is an increase in border violence. There have been more than 14,000 people killed in Mexico in the past few years. These include government officials, police and three Americans,” he explained.

McCain’s believes a physical fence is what is needed, not the virtual fence with surveillance UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) that he believes are ineffective.

“The bad news is that the government has contracted with Boeing to build this virtual fence and it is a $100 million failure. A physical fence is less expensive and more effective,” stated McCain.

The senator acknowledges that there are jobs that Americans simply won’t do, and supports the idea of implementing a temporary worker program. This would allow businesses to first advertise agricultural jobs to American citizens, but if no one takes the jobs, they can be offered to workers from across the border. Those workers would be allowed a work visa for up to one year and after that one year, would have to return to their country and wait for a year before being issued another visa. Employers attempting to keep a visa worker longer than the visa allows would be prosecuted.

"A physical fence is less expensive and more effective"

That's not what you told Vanity Fair three years ago, you traitorous POS!

"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

“I think that gay marriage should be allowed, if there’s a ceremony kind of thing, if you want to call it that,” McCain answers...

The last thing Democrats and RINOs want is for citizens to "get involved." The Tea Party activists are average American citizens who are getting involved. But look at how much America's ruling class overlords and the Democrat Party controlled media hate them for "getting involved". However, if you are a "minority", a leftist liberal Democrat pro-abort, pro-welfare, pro tax, anti-Christian activist, you're welcome to express your opinion and hold protest rallies.

What would McLame say to pander to gay audiences? What about NAMBLA? Does this guy know no end to his pandering?

I can see it now: “I love it in the butt with kids!”

It might get him a few more votes, but it’s just as wrong as when he does with every other issue.

There are 9000 Americans murdered by illegal immigrants every year in the USA. McCain.

I was at a private meeting (precinct people) with Juan two weeks ago and I made him literally say, “NO AMNESTY” and I made him say it twice!

He is so scared. We’re working on getting him to debate with JD next month as JD is coming to Mohave County. He said he would debate JD anytime, anywhere and JD is calling him on it. I’ll keep you posted. Should be interesting.

What an insult to citizens!! This is untrue and makes me angry every time I hear it. Americans are doing jobs every day that McCain thinks they won't do. Simply out of touch.

McAmnesty is a lying lizzard of the worst ilk. He is a total open borders liar and you people out there in Arizona need to whip his butt with JD. It will happen!! Juan is a anti sovereignty sdocialist . He tried to inhibit FREE SPEECH in political campaigns. !!! He must be driven out of our party with his girly man butt boy Lindsey Gramnesty — never to return or we must sack this party and leave. We can not coexist. And get those socialist, Snowe and Collins out NOW!!!

McCain is a shameless liar. He has been one of the greatest opponents of protecting the border. He and Dubya were the same as Obama when it came to opposing the border fence and in trying to grant amnesty to illegal aliens. Immigration RINOs like McCain are why California moved from being a state that elected Ronald Reagan into being a state that is a bedrock of support for leftist Democrats. The conservative American population of California was replaced by a foreign populace that wants all the “free” government programs that it can get.

The slimy Michael Medved was smearing JD Hayworth on his little radio show today. I now use Medved to vet Republican candidates. If I like someone and then find that Michael Medved is pushing him, I figure that there must be some major flaw in the candidate that I haven’t spotted yet.

JDH should have a field day showing how McAmnesty didn’t want a fence.

What a weasel McLame is! Like we don’t remember how he fought against the fence.

If he really thinks the border is unsafe, why isn’t he railing against Obama and the lack of protection that Napolitano is failing to provide.

Oh, that’s right—he only gets indignant with a conservative like JDH.

McCain never passes up a chance to bash Boeing. They probably built it the way the government wanted it, and now they are complaining.

I am glad to hear him now saying the right things, but I don't trust him as far as I could throw him.

Besides how wrong he has been on immigration, he should have stepped aside for someone who had a better chance of winning the presidential election.
