John McCain – We’ll Pass Amnesty after the Primaries

Oh Boy.

Everyone’s least favorite RINO is at it again. Making waves and stirring up trouble. I thought that maybe we were finally past all of the Republican civil war ridiculousness, but John McCain can’t leave well enough alone.

“I think conventional wisdom is that time is not on our side,” McCain told reporters. “But there are a number of members of Congress who have primaries and when those primaries are done, they may be more inclined to address the issue of comprehensive immigration reform.”


I had to read this paragraph a few times before it sunk in. John McCain is basically saying, “Hey – we gotta make sure the conservatives don’t primary us first… then we can pass amnesty. Because once we’re past the primary… who else are they gonna vote for?”

I have to hand it to McCain, the man’s hubris knows no bounds. He straight up tells us that he and his allies are going to slow play amnesty because they know we’ll vote for them anyway.

The worst part is – he’s probably right.

mccain-grits-teethI mean how many elections does the average conservative voter walk into the booth and pull the lever for the Republican simply because he’s the “lesser of two evils?” That’s the ironic twist on voting for the lesser of two evils, isn’t it? You say, “Well I have to do it this time, but next time hopefully we get a good candidate.” BUT – because we keep voting for the less evil dude, the Republicans keep nominating them because they aren’t conservative and we’ll vote for them.

Look, the point here is that McCain is just telling the truth.

The Republican establishment will pass amnesty. They’ll wait until after the primaries so that their preferred candidates don’t face conservative opposition – and then they’ll “mostly” join with Democrats to pass comprehensive immigration reform (including amnesty).

But it’s our fault, isn’t it? We keep electing these liberal RINO freaks.

So, what do we do now?
