Not surprisingly, illegal immigration and the current Senate debate was the topic at hand. Alan Colmes started the chat with a few softball questions and then...Sean Hannity took off the gloves.
Hannity : "This is amnesty at the end of the day...at the end of it you get the grand prize. You came illegally and at the end you get what you wanted."
McCain: "I read in the dictionary that amnesty means forgiveness. We had an amnesty in 1986 and it didn't work. What are our options, to let them stay in the shadows, to try and round up 11 milion people?"
Mc Cain didn't actually answer Hannity's question as far as I could tell but Hannity hit him with another:
McCain:"You are on the path and these people are going to the end of the line."
They go to the end of the line but in the meantime they get to live in the United States, they get "free" health care and "free" public education for their children...an education that has been custom tailored to fit the needs of Hispanics who have unfairly overloaded the sytem for decades.
I liked this one:
Hannity: "Is Mexico really our friend?"
McCain: " Yes."
Hee hee...he actually said that Mexico is our friend! That's a good one...
After a little more chat with Alan Colmes, McCain let loose with a very Presidential one-liner:
McCain: "The most wonderful experience of my life was the opportunity to run for President of the U.S."
After McCain was done promoting treason, former Speaker Newt Gingrich simplified the problem...brilliantly.
I am paraphrasing...what he said was eliminate the draw to the United States and you eliminate illegal immigration. If there are no jobs for illegal aliens, if there is no access to public services and welfare for illegal aliens then the problem would end.
Now there's a thought...too simple for Congress...but a thought!
