Not afraid to debate

Solving our illegal immigration problem is controversial. McCain and President Bush have proposed, along with other Democratic and Republican Senators, a comprehensive immigration reform that will secure our borders and protect our values. The reform includes a guest worker program.

Some will say that this is amnesty for the illegals that are already here but isn't doing nothing amnesty also? As John McCain said on the O'Reilly Factor, "Right now it's de facto amnesty because we have 12 million people here illegally." Many want to criticize the bill but none offer alternatives. Gov. Romney has been a vocal opponent, however, we all continue to wait for his policy recommendation.

Not only is McCain leading the immigration reform, he is not afraid to debate the issue. According the the Washington Post, he's been on "The Mike Gallagher Show," Sean Hannity's radio show," The Michael Medved Show," "Captain's Quarters Blog Radio", and entered the No Spin Zone with Bill O'Reilly (see video below). Truly, this is a presidential quality - to be able to take a stand on a policy that you feel in your heart is the best for the American people and also be open to stumping for the policy (Not unlike Pres. George W. Bush and his social security privatization plan).
