But I cringe when I read things like this political emailing that was forwarded to me. Obviously they don't think they can win by talking up what good their own candidate will do, so they resort to fear-mongering and innuendo, a clear sign of desperation. It makes me sick that McCain doesn't stand up to this.
The email includes a link to their new video (I tried to embed it, but there was no code). Just the headline and the picture are enough to let you know what's in store.Polls show McCain can win EVERY swing state!
We believe that when voters in these key states find out that Obama backs giving illegal aliens driver's licenses, they will turn on him.
The 9/11 hijackers began their plot with driver's licenses. Obama is such a radical he still wants every illegal to get a driver's license.
It gets worse.
He's called for illegals to get Social Security benefits. He even wants them to get free government health care.
Who pays? You do!
Help us expose Barack Obama.
Mohamed Atta Gets His Driver’s License
That's right! Obama supported giving the 9/11 hijackers driver licenses, which makes him part of that dastardly act. Terrorist! Terrorist!
Just a question, but weren't the 9/11 hijackers in the country legally? What does their situation have to do with what this National Republican Trust PAC emailing says Obama is trying to do?
And how could an illegal who gets a driver license use it to get Social Security or to register to vote? Don't the Social Security folks and the voter registrars across the country check for eligibility since not every citizen is entitled to Social Security benefits (until they reach a certain age or meet a narrow set of conditions) and since legal immigrants with long-term visas or green cards are not able to vote?Sphere: Related Content
How would getting a driver license help an illegal get those things if the people in charge there are doing their jobs? This sounds like a red herring to me, but it could pick up traction and become the Obama's "Willie Horton" where Bill Ayers did not.
The sober reality is that we have millions of illegal residents in the United States and even with the harshest of measures that won't change much. Applying some order to their daily lives helps reduce the risks and dangers facing them and the legal residents around them. It's better for me as a legal resident if the illegals who ICE have so far failed to deport are driving legally and with insurance. It's better for me if they go to the hospital when they're sick instead of waiting until they get so ill they are a health hazard for others. And if they are paying Social Security benefits and taxes, I don't exactly see a problem with allowing them to collect on some of that, if that is what they are really doing.
I guess I am a terrorist hugger, too.
