Denial is Not Just a River in Egypt

McCain Playing Games
John McCain joined with Ted Kennedy to try to push an amnesty bill down the throats of the American People. The people rose up and defeated them.
McCain is opposed to building a fence, saying it is not effective, when it is the only thing that has proven effective.
Now he is saying that, if elected president, he would build the border fence and have the governors of the border states certify that it works. This would include pro-amnesty Democrats Napolitano (Arizona) and Richardson (New Mexico).
"John McCain knows the governors have no way of knowing if the fence works and he is setting us up for a political gambit," said Glenn Spencer of American Patrol. "He is playing games with our sovereignty," he added.
