Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is on a collision course with House conservatives over immigration reform.
The five-term senator has stopped short of criticizing Speaker John Boehners (R-Ohio) vow to move immigration reform only if a majority of House GOP lawmakers are on board. Yet, McCain made a pointed comment last weekend that suggested he would only bite his tongue for so long.
I really dont feel it's appropriate for me to tell [Boehner] exactly how he should handle this. But I think Republicans realize the implications for the future of the Republican Party in America if we don't get this issue behind us, McCain said on Fox News Sunday.
Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa), who strongly opposes the Senate bill, took issue with McCains warning, but said he expects the 2008 GOP presidential nominee to continue challenging conservatives on the airwaves.
Most of what [McCain] will do, in my anticipation is through the media. He likes to drop a little bomb and watch how people will react, and hell do it again, King said in an interview with The Hill.
King said McCain should have learned his lesson when he tried to pass immigration reform with the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.)

McCain Covered Up His Collaboration with the North Vietnamese While a POW
He might be, but I just think he is a POS, SOB.
Who can ever forget Schumer's defense of Janet Reno's unleashing masked thugs to kill civilians in Waco; not to mention his support of every Leftist foray since.
Get these DVD’s and send the free extra’s to McLame and other Senators that voted for this POS.
“But I think Republicans realize the implications for the future of the Republican Party in America if we don’t get this issue behind us, McCain said Oh YES we DO Senior McCain, yes we do!
If McLame wants to tell the House what to do, perhaps he should give up his Senate seat and run for the House.
Yes, Chucky Scmuckey is another POS SOB.
