McCain Throws a fit on Mitt...Thompson No Comment....Duncan Hunter Stands tall!
John McCain accused presidential rival Mitt Romney of flip-flopping on immigration Monday and said with sarcasm: "Maybe his solution will be to get out his small varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn." McCain also criticized Thompson for opposing the measure but didn't get nearly as personal as he did with Romney.Heh. So Fred Thompson has changed his position or flip flopping?
"I was a little disappointed in Fred because, again, he had a different position not that long ago," McCain said in the conference call. "But since he's not a declared candidate, I think that Fred will be able to articulate his position."
In a statement last week, Thompson said: "We should scrap this bill and the whole debate until we can convince the American people that we have secured the borders or at least have made great headway."But in a TV interview in 2006, Thompson appeared to advocate a comprehensive approach to dealing with the 12 million people living in the country illegally because deporting all of them "is not going to happen."
A Thompson aide did not return a call seeking comment.
Just another reason I am supporting Duncan Hunter. He has this great article today at Human Events - If We Build it They Won't Come by Rep. Duncan Hunter.
It’s much tougher than it should be to secure America’s borders. While the technology and manpower are all within reach, what seems beyond our grasp is the ability to act. Take last year’s legislation calling for construction of 854 miles of fence on our Southern border.Read It All. Watch Romney and Thompson morph into Duncan Hunter's secure border policy. Duncan gets it! Watch the others follow. I want a leader..not follower.
It’s all too obvious that America is under threat because its land borders are largely porous and unprotected. In response last year Congress passed, and the President signed into law, legislation calling for the construction of those 854 miles of border fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border. Despite this legislative mandate by the U.S. Congress, the Department of Homeland Security recently announced its intention to build only 370 miles of fencing along the border, not the 854 miles required by the legislation.
