“I doubt McCain is ashamed of his record nor is he hiding from it.”
I never said he’s ashamed of it. He might be (privately) proud of it, but he’s definitely hiding from it. He’s so serious about hiding from it that he’s abandoning much of it and doing a major flip/flop and pretending to be for tough border enforcement.
He’s actually trying to make much of his past record on immigration disappear from the voters. And that’s why he’s a coward and refuses to debate JD so far. JD will bring his record out into the open before a major audience of the voters.
McCain isn’t the type of man to be ashamed of what he did when he thought he was right.
At this point I’m sure that he knows what he’s done is unpopular and not winning him any votes, but based on years of him proudly going against the flow when it didn’t cost him anything, he isn’t ashamed of anything, just pragmatic about finding a way to win or keep from losing.
If you think McCain has shame like normal people then you don’t know anything about him at all.
Anyone who can turn his back on POWs and their families like he did can have no shame.
