    Obama overstates his role on immigration
    ANALYSIS | But McCain deserves credit for going out on a limb to forge bipartisan deal

    WASHINGTON -- No matter if you are—or are not — voting for presumptive GOP nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Az.), he deserves credit for trying to forge a bipartisan deal on immigration in 2005 and 2006 at great personal political risk, a situation unfamiliar to rival Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.)

    McCain put his comeback presidential bid in peril because of his leadership role with Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) to find a path for millions of illegal immigrants to stay in the U.S.

    The Kennedy-McCain legislation stalled in 2006, because the hardline pro- and anti-immigration forces preferred the status quo to a compromise. Another try in 2007 — in a bill backed by McCain and Obama — also failed.

    McCain and Obama, wooing Hispanic voters, each has madeclear in recent appearances before the National Association of Latino Elected Officials and the League of United Latino American Citizens a few days ago that he would make immigration reform — and legalizing the status of millions of illegal immigrants — a priority if elected president. I expect each to send the same message at the upcoming National Council of La Raza conference in San Diego, where Obama speaks Sunday and McCain on Monday.

    In the meantime, Obama on the campaign trail inflates his leadership role — casting himself as someone who could figure out how to get something done. Obama “did not absolutely stand out in any way,’’ said Margaret Sands Orchowski, the author of “Immigration and the American Dream: Battling the Political Hype and Hysteria,

    This country is TOO politically correct for it's own good.
    Did you see where some town is having the Police Dogs wear booties because it upsets the Muslims??? What happened to coming to America and taking on our rules? We are a bunch of Lemmings run by idiots. This is our downfall. Goodbye America and it's ways. Soon we too will be eating dog meat and protesting pig meat. In two towns in Maine you can't bring pork sandwiches to school! They also built footbaths for Somali students??? What happened to separation of Church and state?

    Like the late Richard Pryor's character in "Brewester's Millions" vote for 'none of the Above'.
