    Reagan 1964

    "Admittedly there is a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face--that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight and surrender. If we continue to accommodate, continue to back and retreat, eventually we have to face the final demand--the ultimatum. And what then?.....

    You and I have the courage to say to our enemies, "There is a price we will not pay." There is a point beyond which they must not advance. "

    McCain 2007, LeMars, IA

    On June 2, McCain rolled out his fear-based defense of amnesty on the campaign trail in Le Mars, Iowa. Responding to a question about deportation of illegal aliens, McCain delivered the following dilly: "In case you hadn't noticed, the thousands of people who have been relegated to ghettos have risen up and burned cars in France,'' McCain said. "They've got huge problems in France. They have tremendous problems. The police can't even go into certain areas in the suburbs of Paris. I don't want that in the suburbs of America.''

  2. let's take a look at mccain's buttboy buddy in the amnesty treason:

  3. That comment was kind of a low point for McCain. Of course, the logic of his statement is to immediately start reducing the numbers of immigrants before we get to the point that France is in, not granting them amnesty and encouraging more to come here. So as offensive as it was, it didn't even make sense.

    The problem the democrats will have is that they can't really use these kinds of statements against McCain, since they support the same policies.

    McCain is a bazzarre combination of reckless warmongering 'bombbombbomb,bombbomb iran' for matters that are not our concern, along with appeasement to what he acknowledges are illegal invaders on our our soil, that present a violent threat

    "The problem the democrats will have is that they can't really use these kinds of statements against McCain, since they support the same policies"

    boy, isnt that the sad truth
