Flip Flopper Extraordinaire

Posted: September 21, 2010 in Disgusted in AZ, Sen. John McCain

Our not so esteemed Senator from AZ, John McCain, will be filibustering the Dream Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) today……This act is part of a larger defense authorization bill and would grant permanent residency to young undocumented immigrants who honorably serve in the armed forces for two years.

Nevermind the fact that Sen. McCain co-sponsored this same bill three years running (2005, 2006 and 2007).  But since the Dems are proposing it now and it’s an election year (meaning he had to veer very far right to win his own primary), he will oppose that same bill now. 

What a disingenuous jackass.  Young men and women are risking life and limb in our military forces overseas and the US can’t or won’t guarantee them citizenship when they’re done.  Currently they only get a “favorable status” for becoming a citizen.  We should be ashamed.
