What Was McCain Thinking?

While I am not overly bothered by politicians using profanity, I think McCain’s recent remarks to Sen. Cornyn cross the line. Its not so much the content of tirade, but more the reason he was swearing at Cornyn:

May 19, 2007 — WASHINGTON – Presidential hopeful John McCain – who has been dogged for years by questions about his volcanic temper – erupted in an angry, profanity-laced tirade at a fellow Republican senator, sources told The Post yesterday.

In a heated dispute over immigration-law overhaul, McCain screamed, “F- – – you!” at Texas Sen. John Cornyn, who had been raising concerns about the legislation.

“This is chickens- – – stuff,” McCain snapped at Cornyn, according to several people in the room off the Senate floor Thursday. “You’ve always been against this bill, and you’re just trying to derail it.”

Surprised by McCain’s foul-mouthed broadside, Cornyn told him he was “out of line.”

Firstly, Cornyn said it right, McCain was out of line. Wether McCain is trying to get back his “maverick” image, I don’t know, but this was not the right way to do it. Secondly, allow me to give Cornyn a few extra points for being against amnesty. The last thing this country needs in millions of un-educated, un-skilled, disloyal new citizens. These people are criminals, and the actions of the Democrats and the traitorous Republicans amount to little more than accessory to a crime. We do not have to expel these people – just remove their opportunities to receive government services, jobs, or housing, and they will go away on their own. This bill does not do enough to protect the border and does too much to help illegals. Enough said.

    I don’t know if I would call them all criminals, but I do agree that we need a realistic piece of immigration legislation. This includes ways for those who are loyal, hard working people to have the ability to become a legal resident without needing to break the law and go under the table. What are we saying to those who stand in line and wait for years to become citizens or legal residents if we provide a blanket amnesty for all those who did it the wrong way?

  2. There is nothing else to call them. They broke the law and, by deffinition, those who break the law are criminals. I think that we should secure the border, remove all services, and offer guest worker cards for a limited number of people available only at their home countries. There are not twelve million jobs that Americans will not take. It only takes half a million people to do the annual friut harvest. I don’t believe in anything that allows these people any form of legalization before they return home and we get to restrict the number of people returning.
