Re: James Fulford's Blog: Will The Real McCain Please…Go Away?

The consensus around Arizona is that John McCain made a huge mistake in shifting his immigration advocacy to that of a would-be restrictionist.

McCain's massive flip-flop hasn't fooled anyone. So absurd is McCain's shift that even the Main Stream Media cannot stop laughing at him. [After Dismissing Fence, McCain Touts It in Ad, by Jonathan J. Cooper, Associated Press, May 13, 2010]

The result is that every time McCain appears on Arizona television, we're reminded of what he really is: a liar and a shameless opportunist. (See McCain ad "Complete the Danged Fence" here.)

Carter, who once lived in Mexico, wrote about being racially profiled in that country here. Another letter from Carter about the fiscal consequences of illegal immigration in Arizona appeared here.

James Fulford writes: I have extensive YouTube clips of McCain's various Fence Flip-Flops here, but for people who don't want to watch him, all you need to know is this quote from Vanity Fair:

"Then he added, unable to help himself, 'By the way, I think the fence is least effective. But I'll build the goddamned fence if they want it.' [Prisoner of Conscience, February 2007]
