McCain supportive of Gov. Brewer’s request for border troops

Despite Homeland Security secretary Janet Napolitano’s recent assertion that her department doesn’t need additional dollars for border security, Sen. John McCain has pledged his support of Gov. Brewer’s request for additional troops.

Read what syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin has to say about President Obama’s statement regarding increasing U.S. troop presence on the border : “We’re going to examine whether and if National Guard deployments would make sense and under what circumstances they would make sense,” Obama said.

This latest posture for McCain, who has long sought ways to grant amnesty to the millions of illegals in the U.S. raises suspicions. It was McCain, partnering with Sen. Jon Kyl and liberal Ted Kennedy, who crafted the so-called Comprehensive Immigration Reform, that enraged American citizens to the point of shutting down the congressional switchboard, jamming fax machines and filling email boxes with their ire. Although that bill was ultimately ditched, don’t be lulled into complacency.

Trusting him on this issue, brings to mind the old adage: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.”

Napolitano does not act in a vacuum. Any plan she offers is Obama’s plan. John McCain has already shown himself to be unresponsive to the citizens of his state and the nation on the issue of illegal immigration.

Be wary.

    Remember how Kyl claimed to support border security during his last campaign, only to support amnesty immediately after winning reelection? How many times do we need to be duped?

    He and McCain are cut from the same cloth.

    Our non-representing Representatives, McCain, Kyl, Flake and Shadegg all work to promote the welfare of illegal aliens while Americans struggle with ever decreasing employment possibilities. Meanwhile Arizona voters support our sovereignty at the ballot box 75% to 25% every time.

    Flake is SO out of touch with reality he ran his “immigration attorney” brother-in-law, against Sen. Russell Pearce in ’08. Sure enough! Approx. 75% for Pearce, 25% for immigration attorney brother-in-law!

    Here is McKyl in June of 2007 defending amnesty to Lou Dobbs.

    How many miles of that fence have been built? Listen to his fancy two step as Dobbs holds his feet to the fire, saying to Kyl “we’ve got a credibility problem here.” He and McCain are like thinkers and nothing has changed except the words they use.

    Trusting John McCain on the border is tantamount to believing a friend’s pet chimp is a child-like pet…before it tears your face off.

    Perfect analogy, Chicka!

    You omitted the only sensible sub-headline under the banner headline for this post:
    “And I’ve got a bridge to sell you.”

    Trust in McCain & Co. on issues of actual border security and you deserve what you get. He employed the detestable and untrustworthy Juan Hernandez as a campaign consultant.
