Dear John McCain

Dear John,

While this is not quite a dear john letter it is not going to be too far.

I am sympathetic to your ideas on immigration. I do not see us deporting all illegal immigrants as a practical idea both in terms of the political resistance as well as being able to muster the resources to do the job. I am okay with coming up with a list of true criminals and going after them and sending them back.

I hope (have not yet taken the time for the analysis) provisions are in the bill for real border security and pressure upon our neighbors to the south to reform their economies so their people do not have to wonder the world over for work.

But that is not my concern right now. Your actions, words, and so on are very disturbing. I understand politics is a rough and tumble sport (after all disagreeing friends usually do well to avoid the topic) and people have said some nasty things about you, but you are beginning to lose your cool. First you unload on Senator Cornyn, and now Mitt Romney.

"Maybe I should wait a couple of weeks and see if it changes because its changed in less than a year from his position before," McCain responded, referring to his rival's immigration stance. "And maybe his solution will be to get out his small varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn."

I am not yet on board with any presidential campaign, Your's is the closest to it, but if rubbish like this coming from yourself I will not support you, maybe even to the point of not voting for president if you win the nomination.

Do you honestly think the above quote won your campaign or your ideas on immigration any love? It lost your campaign & immigration plan support. Watch it.
