Here is a new John McCain Ad on "Immigration Reform." It is in Spanish and aimed at Hispanics to set the record straight no who actually tried to get Immigration Reform passed. Below is the translation:
ANNCR: Obama and his Congressional allies say they are on the side of immigrants. But are they?
The press reports that their efforts were poison pills that made immigration reform fail.
No guest worker program.
No path to citizenship.
No secure borders.
Is that being on our side?
Obama and his Congressional allies ready to block immigration reform, but not ready to lead.
JOHN MCCAIN: Im John McCain and I approve this message.
Whether you agree with McCain or not on his attempt at Immigration Reform, this is a brilliant strategy to win over Hispanic Voters. He has been a great friend to Hispanics, and this ad points out the reality that Obama is big on talk but short on actions. . . . . . (see video at link)

If we're lucky Sarah will take over in 2012 and McCain will retire.
As long as there are fiscal conservatives in that mix who can keep the GOP from going on a drunken spending orgy.
Couldn’t agree more.
Very troubling, actually.
“Astounding stupidity” is about right.
Sorry to have to point this out, but John McCain HAS NOT been a good friend to Hispanics. Who do you think are the first people to loose jobs when illegals pour across our border? Whose wages are depressed due to the flood of cheap labor? Law abiding Hispancs, that's who.
I hope John realizes he won't be getting the majority of the illegal votes, no matter what he has done to get them.
If I didn’t say so before, I totally agree.
I was shocked at the number of FReeple on that thread.
FYI, for those interested:
- Judicial Watch has listed Alaska as a Sanctuary City since 2003 (wonder what, if anything, Ms Palin did during her tenure to object?)
- Mexican Consulate is set to open in Alaska this month with a celebration of Mexican Independence Day.
- Alaska is one of only 11 States that gives Drivers Licenses to illegal aliens.
- Palin refused to sign (and interestingly, also refused to veto) legislation that, as a result of her doing nothing, made Alaska the 9th state to pass a law prohibiting compliance with the REAL ID Act. “Governor Palin and the Alaska legislature deserve praise from all Alaskans for standing up to the federal government,” added Jeffrey Mittman, executive director of the ACLU of Alaska.
And if Sarah has to drag the ticket to victory herself—she just might do it!
He's too old and he's too DC. While Palin might get some votes, at the end of the day he still loses.
You forget that McLame will work the the ‘Rats to block any Conservative GOP legislation and there will still be enough RINOs to keeps Conservatives at bay. Whoever wins, Conservatives are screwed. Face reality.
Why? Voters agree obviously support legalization and John McCain has been its greatest champion.
Lying angry clintoon voters don’t count.
“I dont even know what so say. Seems like astounding stupidity to remind voters about immigration.”
Yeah but he knows those of us who care deeply about our borders, as I do, have nowhere else to turn. They take us for granted. Heck the party elders have taken conservatives for granted on issues such as this and spending for decades. Eventually it will come back to bite them and people won’t stand for conservative talk every couple falls and moderately liberal government the rest of the time. Or it won’t matter because by that time we will have so many hispanic voters that the Republican party will no longer be a national force. If McCain, Bush, or others think that we’ll win that demographic they are tripping. We won’t unless we win a handout war with the ‘Rats.
I have no doubt that McCain will win without my help. (I’m writing in Hunter) However the backlash Bush faced on the issue will be nothing compared to what McCain will face when he tries. I wouldn’t call for impeaching him but I certainly won’t stand in the way either. After all, a president is elected to enact the will of the people and presidents have been playing emperor for far too long.
