Arizona Sen. John McCain (R) applauded his state's governor, Jan Brewer (R), Monday for vetoing a controversial "birther" bill.
The legislation, the first of its kind in the nation, would have required presidential candidates to prove their citizenship to be included on the state's ballot.
McCain, President Obama's GOP opponent in 2008, tweeted:
Proud of @GovBrewer for her veto of the "birther bill" - it was the right decision.
The bill stemmed from suspicions of some of Obama's opponents that he is not a natural-born citizen of the United States and is thus ineligible to be commander in chief.
McCain's 2008 campaign investigated "birther" claims against Obama, but found them to be baseless. In 2010, the senator ran a campaign ad during his Senate reelection bid against his Republican primary opponent, former Rep. J.D. Hayworth, tying him to top figures in the "birther" movement. In a letter explaining her veto, Brewer said the proposal, "creates significant new problems while failing to do anything constructive for Arizona," according to the Arizona Republic.
Bend over, here it comes again.
Jeez John, every time you open your mouth, I just freakin' cringe inside
Exactly. If there is no problem, Just let those retarded Republicans pass all the stupid legislation that they want, and it will only backfire on them./S Why would anyone oppose this bill?
fact is the Vietcong destroyed him.......he will cave to anything anyone anytime.
And there you have it. THOSE people spewing insults at the birthers are the same people that called the Minutemen racists. Karl Rove, John McCain and anybody else you may remember that was for “Immigration Reform” are also against the birthers and definately against Donald Trump*. Don’t be surprised if George W Bush will be the next one to come out and insult the birthers. They support undocumented workrs even if that worker is in the White House.
Will “president” Obama recuse himslef from any future dealings and debates over “Immigration Reform”?
*Strict conservatives are also not supportive of Donald Trump and rightfully so. But they should be careful and not put the “birthers” and Donald Trump in the same category.
The majority of birthers value the US constitution and conservatism and are for the most part the majority of Tea Party and Minutemen issue voters.
When was the last time you ever heard John McCain or Karl Rove say something good about the Tea Party?
The GOP is committing Obamacide.
What amazes me about Rove and the other critics is that they don’t see the utility of the BC issue in political terms. Clearly- for whatever reason- it really gets under Obama’s skin, and that’s when his surly, churlish real personality starts gradually exposing itself. If you know that your opponent has a bizarre Achilles heel on something, shouldn’t you use it to your advantage to knock him off his game (even if just in jest)? The idea is to win. And he’s an aloof, lazy, rude, weirdo- and he needs to be called out on it...
I’m tired of hearing this boor bash Bush, Palin, Tea Party supporters, white police officers, and so on, all the while he gets a pass as being this “really nice guy”. Rove was one of the first people on a national scale to comment on Obama’s personality as being the kind of guy who stands in the corner at the cocktail party making rude remarks about everybody else in the room- why doesn’t he listen to himself?
You've said a mouthful there. Especially Rove. I just saw a headline from Newsmax. Something like 68% would vote for Trump over Obama. Rove is a numbers man. He should be loving that! But he does not.
Much of Trump's popularity stems from his stance on Obama's eligibilty. Karl Rove has never met an undocumented worker he did not like. Neither did McCain. You will see a pattern of this. The anti-Minuteman crowd is back against the "birthers".
You still need that attention, don’t you Juan?
