    Hell I'll admit you can't put this on Barry. This has been a long time coming for a state to stand up and take charge of securing its border with Mexico.

    That was dumb of McCain to say!!

    McQuisling should get his shriveled up ass thrown out of office for that idiotic remark alone.

    He hasn't.

    They all profit from the continuation of the status quo.

    Obama has done NOTHING to address our borders. However, for McCain to blame him entirely is ludicrous.

    It was actually a smart political move.

    McCain doesn't want to loose the hispanic vote in Arizona as they make up somewhere around 30% of the population and he's in an uphill battle right now. He also doesn't want to loose the conservative vote.

    It was a very calculated way to play the middle. "I don't like it but... it's Obama's fault".

    There he managed, in his mind, to make a statement without pissing everybody off.

    Guess he was wrong.

    Oh and minus the Obama part, I agree with him. This whole crisis is the fault of the feds, but all of the past administrations have had their hands in this bullshit.

    McCain needs to be locked away for his own safety
