How dare they question Chicago Jesus! I was going to make this a “quote of the day” post then I noticed at the end of the story Obama told McRINO that he did indeed read Arizona’s immigration law and that he still “had concerns,” which is total bullshit because it mirrors the federal law that Obama supports…
WASHINGTON (AP) – If President Barack Obama thought having a private lunch with Republican senators would ease partisan tensions in Congress, he grabbed the wrong recipe.
“He needs to take a Valium before he comes in and talks to Republicans,” Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., told reporters. “He’s pretty thin-skinned.”
Sen. David Vitter, R-La., said he addressed Obama, “trying to demand overdue action” on the giant oil spill damaging Gulf coast states. He said got “no specific response” except Obama’s pledge to have an authoritative White House official call him within hours.
Sen. John McCain of Arizona, Obama’s 2008 presidential opponent, said he pressed the president on immigration issues. McCain said he told Obama “we need to secure the border first” before taking other steps. “The president didn’t agree,” he said.
McCain said he defended his state’s pending immigration law, which Obama says could lead to discrimination. It directs police, when questioning people about possible law violations, to ask about their immigration status if there is “reasonable suspicion” they’re in the country illegally.
At the luncheon, McCain said, “I pointed out that members of his administration who have not read the law have mischaracterized the law—a very egregious act on their part.”
Burton said Obama told McCain that he has read the Arizona law himself, and his concerns remain.
