    McCain: Failure To Act on Immigration Could Turn Red States Blue

    McCain: Failure to act on immigration could turn red states blue | The Ticket - Yahoo! News
    "The Republican Party has failed to understand to a significant degree the importance of this issue to our Hispanic voters," McCain said during a breakfast sponsored by Politico. "I think the trend will continue of lack of support from Hispanic voters and also as you look at the demographics of states like mine, that means we will go from Republican to Democrat over time."

    "We are elected to office because voters think we will help them achieve their hopes and dreams and aspirations for the future," McCain said. "If you have a large bloc of Americans who believe that you are trying to keep their ... fellow Hispanics down and deprive them of an opportunity, obviously that's going to have an effect."
    Is McCain smokin' something?

    Or is vote-pandering such a knee-jerk behavior for a politician that they're simply just predisposed to dumbing-down and resultant party suicide?!

    McCain could not be more wrong than if he chose someone like, oh, Sarah Palin as a running mate!

    Everyone knows that it's the liberal Dems who've been championing amnesty and legalization for the 20 million trespassing, identity-forging, and jobs/classroom/other-resource stealing illegals all these years.

    It's the liberal Dems who are the ones who spin situations all out of reason, casting criminal illegals as "downtrodden", "disaffected", and other "minority interests abandoned by the conservative status-quo Repubs".

    The illegals know it's the liberal Dems who've been their champions, and the illegals, 75% of whom are of Hispanic-Latino descent, know that those of their race who are in positions of authority in America are predominantly of the liberal Dems.

    Here McCain panders to needing to be relevant to Hispanics, as if all American politics nowadays is about race-appeasement rather than the specific geopolitical-socioeconomic details of a particular issue and what's in the best interest of American citizens.

    But his pander is meaningless, too little way too late, as the illegals know full well that they are predominantly low-income wage workers, the darlings of the liberal Dems who stump for them, and that the Repubs are and will remain the champions of business owners/management.

    McCain must think illegals are stupid.

    But it's McCain whose shed tools aren't the sharpest on this one, obviously.

    Some say that the illegals, thanks to 75% of them being Hispanic-Latino, are predominantly Catholic, and that the Christian right of the conservative Repubs will draw a "religious alliance" together between Protestant fundamentalists and Catholics, thus compelling via guilt a social alliance that will garner Republicans votes.

    But that's simply erroneous thinking.

    The economic appeal of the liberal Dems will greatly outweigh the religious appeal of the conservative Repubs, as all the liberal Dems have to do is evidence their existent support of Catholicism! It's that simple for them. The liberal Dems already have the illegals won on economic matters by a landslide. A little effort to bring their support of Catholicism to the media's attention is all it will take to cement former-illegals votes in with the liberal Dems.

    And, of course, 25% of illegals are from Asia, Europe, Africa, etc. and their interests are purely economic, not the least concerned about a "religious alliance". They belong to the liberal Dems already; a done deal.

    Some also say that the 75% of illegals who are Hispanic-Latino are also Catholic, so they will be opposed to abortion on demand and will thus choose the pro-life conservative Repubs over the liberal pro-choice Dems.

    But recent polls show that, what with the growing fame of the 35-year-old hard-science consensus among anthropology, phylogeny, taxonomy, biology, genetics-DNA, organism-life, embryonics, etc. that from conception on the entity growing inside the woman is most certainly a living human, alive as a live can be, more people, if given a choice just between pro-life and pro-choice, now are pro-life and by a considerably larger margin than that by which Obama won reelection. Clearly, in time, both parties will be supporting making abortion safe, legal and rare, that's right, including the liberal Dems. So abortion as an issue to draw former-illegals votes to the conservative Repubs is a non-starter .. and, don't forget that 25% of illegals aren't wooable in this manner, and are only concerned with the economics of the matter.

    Abortion is meaningless in this matter .. and besides, isn't McCain pro-choice?! Again, McCain's a rather poor spokesperson-choice in the matter .. not to mention he's from Arizona, you remember Arizona, with their search-and-apprehend-all-illegals law? Illegals aren't gonna trust a word he says!

    No, McCain really does have it all backasswards: amnesty and legalization will simply put the Repubs out of business!

    It really is a no-brainer.

    But the compulsion to pander is so much a part of a politician's warp and woof that overrides their common sense .. and that can only account for why D.C. right now is behaving so egregiously clueless with this amnesty and legalization movement they're compelled to ..

    .. Because when you read the reader commentary at the bottom of the linked article, it's like 10 to 1 or greater opposed to amnesty and legalization!

    Yes, just read the reader comments -- that's the true story, the true public U.S. citizen sentiment on amnesty and legalization for multi-criminal illegals ..

    .. And so if amnesty and legalization occurs, there will be hell to pay in D.C., for certain!

    GOP lost 4% from Hispanic vote totals after the 1986 amnesty program. Single issue voters don't exist.

    McCain is a disgusting liberal who needs to get off the world stage and drift off into a blissfully unaware retirement

    Thank you for my morning laugh. Someone naming themselves after a knowledge construct holding up Internet reader comments as representative of “citizens”.

    Comedy gold.

    Just think how many new voters the republicants could attract by increasing welfare benefits to all below 500% of the poverty line. Even more could be added if republicants granted amnesty to all felons that stay "clean" for two years! Republicants can try to "out give" the demorats, but then why not simply swap parties instead of morphing into RINOs? What is the political advantage gained by offering a choice between Obama and Obama-lite? McCain and other RINO "politcal geniuses" are simply seeing if "wimping out" and declaring criminals to be "victims" will win over the "moderate" whiners, which clearly prefer the real thing and not the "lite" version. Colin Powell, the new "conservative-lite", will surely get McCains vote in 2016.

    Meaningless, obviously.

    But it does seem to suggest that you support amnesty and legalization .. and that you really are concerned about the large citizen base that opposes it.

    Do you have any meaningful comments that evidence your own knowledge construct?

    Or is revealing your position between the lines your singular debate M.O.?

    Agreed .. only I would change the word "liberal" to "libertarian" as he has all but admitted such.

    Not that being libertarian makes him disgusting.

    His pander bear behavior, selling out American citizens, is what makes his behavior disgusting.

    The Republican Party can not win a national election if it continues to ignore the Hispanic vote.

    McCain is anything but Libertarian....I could care LESS what he CLAIMS to be...his voting record and words disqualify him from being Libertarian
    Libertarian and Atheist...wow I'm a hated man.
