He's discussing his commitment to amnesty for illegals as his top priority:

How despicable of him. If he somehow wins the presidential election, which I PRAY that he doesn't, I hope that he'll act like most politicians by not staying true to his word.

"We must also understand that there are 12 million people here and they are hear illegally but they are God's children, they are God's children," McCain said, pounding the podium as he repeated the words., "and must be treated as such."
Our prisons are also full of “God’s children” -- but that doesn’t absolve them of their crimes. Sadly, he and Obama are like two peas in a pod regarding amnesty for illegal aliens.

I hope you're right, mdonaldson. I hope they are true to form, and are simply pandering for votes, with no intentions of delivering on their promises.

Here's your choice: Under McCain, have the problem fixed once and for all. Or, under Obama, have the border open and get to wait in line behind illegals for the health care you-- and not them-- are paying for.

Welcome to the real world. Compromise sucks. If it didn't suck, it wouldn't be hard.

That's it. The aliens won... just like they did last time. At this point, the question is how much will they win?

Apparently; there is some bad blood between the 'Hispanic' community as a whole and Obama.

Face it: if he supports the 'amnesty thing' (most illegals happen to be either Mexican or Central American); Obama will enrage the Blacks.

Remember that Blacks and Latinos are equally balanced as percentages of the total population here in the USA.

Too; it seems that prejudice is fading out towards AA's as well------but, burgeoning against Spanish speakers whether they are legal or not.

We are living in interesting times, my friends. I just hope that innocent people do not get hurt.

Even IF what you are saying is true( which is not), African Americans will never vote for a republican over a democrat( and that is a fact).

Seems to me I've heard that somewhere before.................I believe the year was 1986.

Good Lord, we've had exactly this scenario playing out for decades now. Where have you been?

Really? Care to share your source of this revelation? Or do you possess supernatural powers enabling you to enter the hearts and minds of black people? Was this an acquired skill, or is it innate?
