Posted on 02/16/2014 8:52:26 AM PST by jimbo123
As the debate brews over whether Republicans will take up the task of pushing through immigration reform, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday said he is hopeful Republicans will put something forward.
"I have not given up hope that we would act and we must act," McCain said on "State of the Union" with Candy Crowley.
"In states like mine, the demographics will only overtake and throughout the whole southwest," McCain said referencing the Hispanic vote he said Republicans need to win a national election.
McCain stood by his past comments that Republicans would not be able to win another election race without reform.

Shut up and go chase after some Syrian Christians, McCain.
Come on Juan! Mow your own lawn!
Dear John, piss off.
I guess enforcing existing law is out of the question, has been for some time.
The last amnesty didn’t help Republicans.
Another one will only hurt them worse.
It’s insulting to multiple groups to say the only way Hispanic voters can be pleased is to reward them for breaking the law.
McCain is insane.
And the staffer he sent to work as Boehner’s Amnesty Czar, Becky Tallent has all the gravitas of Brittany Spears.

McCain you clueless bimbo.
I completely supported you in 2008, when you appointed Ms. Palin as your running mate.
That was a bold and inspired choice. However your decisions since have turned me very cold.
I no longer support John McCain. I want him to be defeated.
I understand Palin still supports him.
I no longer support him.
America cannot continue to sell out to foreigners.
America needs to build up America.
McCain doesn't have a state. He's a permanent resident of DC.
“McCain stood by his past comments that Republicans would not be able to win another election race without reform.”
So immigration policy is about “race reform”. What the hell does that even mean?
Typical beltway RINO politician. It’s always about pandering to the lowest common denominator.
When McCain says ANYTHING about ‘reason’, ‘reasonable’, ‘bipartisan’, ‘comprehensive’, ‘reform’ or any of those code words, he means CAPITULATION EVEN BEFORE CONFRONTATION.
He is a coward and an abject traitor even given the sacrifices he made for his country DECADES ago.
He is completely insane in my opinion. He allows himself to be puppeted by terrorists and this administration in more examples that one can recount in brevity.
Exactly why the people of Arizona choose him to represent them as one of the two Senate representatives in this Union confounds me completely.
Or what, the border will continue to be unsecured, and we will continue to not care about illegals in our midst?
Can I ask a stupid question?
How is it that our immigration system is broken? We have many laws on the books which we don’t even enforce. Yet we have politicos of both parties, saying our system is broken, and needs fixing. Many hint at, or say out loud, that an amnesty should be done.
My stupid question is why we need some massive reform of a broken system, when part of the reason people think it’s broken is because we don’t enforce the laws already on the books.
To paraphrase liberals on Obamacare, the immigration laws we have on the books are the law of the land, and if we only enforced them, the immigration situation might be far different than it is now. If only we had the political will to enforce the laws.
Nowadays, we make up laws and policies as we go along, based on political correctness, not on what the actual text of a law says.
The GOP will win national elections when it has the right policies, not from pandering. Pandering is the specialty of the Democrats.
Can someone, please, drop John off - from a plane, on his head - down in Chihuahua, where he’d feel more at home?
Yeah, lets start by deporting McCain.
What did the 1987 amnesty do for the GOP in the elections?
McCain was on television (well, CNN) ...what a shock.
Secure the borders and enforce existing laws. Maybe then we can talk. Moron.
Gee Juan, do you think maybe reform would help you get reelected. This guy needs to be primaried badly.
John McCain, shilling for terrorists and illegal aliens since _____.
If anything is an argument against the GOP amnesty plan it’s this: John McCain is for it.
Wow, I went two whole days without hearing from McCain. Wonder if he’s sick?
Giving amnesty to these undocumented aliens means the Democrats will have a perpetual lock on the electoral college because that will guarantee them Texas along with all the other large states. It will also make us the largest nation in Latin America, guarantee a large, permanent underclass dependent on entitlements, and destroy the American economy.
When will this SOB just die?
"Immigration Reform" just means lawlessness.
1. Border Security First, solid and credible.
2. A president who respects executes the law faithfully.
But we might as well be talking to the median on the Beltway, huh? We don't speak the same language.
Press ONE for English
Press TWO for Progressive
First of all, I wish someone would explain the exact meaning of immigration “reform”. And explain why it needs to be “reformed”. The only possible explanation is it’s a nice word for amnesty.
Second, why would anyone who’s so old that he can’t possible live too much longer give a damn whether or not the republicans ever win?
Third, if he’s a republican, I don’t want them to ever win again.
And finally, “Eff you, McCain! Did you cancel your cable and get stung by a bug and now all the kids call you ‘Fatty Face’? I’ve despised you since you first ran for office. It sickens me to think that I actually voted for you, you traitorous POS.”
Does he ever miss a Sunday AM show? Can't he perhaps go to church or something?
It might Explode in Anger.
But who's fault is this Hispanic infestation, McCain? What did yo expect when you invited them to sneak into the country. If you had enforced the LAW, this wouldn't even be an issue.
The only REFORM we need is to finish building a WALL. Then we can talk about who stays and who goes.
Somebody needs to tell McCain that if the American people wanted what he is selling, they would have elected him in 2008 instead of electing the worst president this country has ever seen.
Sen. McCain has no integrity.
He gave MANPADs to al Qaeda in Libya,
SAMs in Egypt, Sarin in Syrian and did NOTHING
as nuns were raped and girls sold using US taxpayer money.
Arizona has an open border for terrorists because of him.
Here’s the way it works. You develop through experience a system of beliefs and policies that you believe are best for the country and your state. Because the electorate largely agrees with your policies you are elected. During your term(s) you may be convinced to tinker at the edges of your policies while keeping what you stand for intact. You are re-elected or not based upon how the electorate now views your record. You do NOT change your core principles in order to get re-elected but instead rejoice or bemoan your electoral fate. Your character remains intact either way. Comprende?
No, we do not need any more laws. Just follow what is already on the books.
What we need to do is give Obama everything he wants.
Then he won’t have anything to run on during the election. :)
So, let me get this straight, we either give amnesty to 20 million illegals or lose the Latino vote?
We are mctraitor... your sorry ass and the rest of the rinoid democrats are going into obama’s unemployment line... then we will enforce ALL of our current existing laws. FUjm!
They are selling out to their corporate paymasters. The Chamber of Commerce and their big donors are calling the tune.
We now have the Democrat Party: The Party of Progressives
and the GOP: The other Group of Progressives
I am now a proud member of No Party Affiliation
It is all about one thing and one thing only...a permanent progressive voting majority.
McPain is desperate for an issue he can champion and for which the Liberals who like him and open-borders backers with money will still contribute to his next reelection campaign. If he won’t and can’t produce as a champion their cause, he won’t keep getting their their $upport.
Wasn’t allowing IA’s to take over part of the plan. Now you try to deceive us in political poppycock of endorsing unlawful presence for votes? DOLT!
Stop the Magnet endorsements in TX:
FU McAmnesty. Retire.
