Confused? Do Arizona Republican Voters Prefer Amnesty

Editor's Comment: At Blogs For Borders, we clearly understand that all elections are local and that it it is  up to the people of that State, County, etc. to make their choices to represent them.  But what happened yesterday in Arizona's Republican Primary election has clearly confused others outside of Arizona who have supported Arizona's efforts to confront  problems created by illegals invading the United States.

Since the primary was a Republican primary which involved Sen. John McCain, we are sharing the following article from a republican / conservative website, GOPUSA, which shares the frustration over Arizonans  re-electing McCain in the primary.  Arizona clearly are willing to once again rely on McCain to nationally address border security and illegal immigration issues. 

However, others who are concerned about "American sovereignty, border security and a sane immigration policy" have their doubts.  They question if the future Sen. John McCain will be any different than the past compromising Sen. John McCain as a credible voice in addressing border security and stopping the invitation of America.  After all, it was presidential candidate John McCain who said the Barack Obama was "a person you do not have to be scared of as president of the United States."  How is that working out for McCain every time, Obama insults or dismisses him?

Posted by "The Scribe" at GOPUSA: What is any good Tea Party patriot to think about Arizona voters after they have just returned John McCain to office? This is the state that leads the country with immigration enforcement efforts and then turns around and sends a pro-amnesty senator back to D.C. Do conservatives still want the status quo? Excuse me if I am confused.
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) spent more than $20 million on his way to victory over primary rival J.D. Hayworth (R). McCain captured 59 percent of the vote Tuesday to 29 for Hayworth. Navy veteran Jim Deakin took 11 percent. The Associated Press called the race for McCain shortly after the early returns were in.
Arizona voters fight illegal immigration by supporting Gov. Brewer and their legislature's ground breaking law on the one hand, but on the other they return the biggest amnesty seeking senator to DC. What are they thinking?
To shore up his right flank, McCain drifted away from some of the issues he championed years ago. He gave a muted response to the recent Supreme Court decision that lifted restrictions he helped pass on campaign spending. He also stopped pushing for immigration reform and instead touted his support for increased security along the border -- including a fence he once opposed. [Read the rest]
Don't voters in Arizona realize that McCain will again support amnesty? Don't they know that he will again cross the aisle to make nice with radical Obama Democrats? Tea Party conservatives have worked hard in the last two years to change America. It must be very disheartening to see the Beltway's biggest RINO returned to the Senate by the voters of Arizona.

Here is a bit of what Sen. McCain had to say last night.
I'm convinced that Republicans will win in November and we will regain the majorities in both the Senate and the House. And we will win House seats here in Arizona. And when we do, we will stop the out of control spending and tax increases and repeal and replace Obamacare. We will keep families in their homes, we will create new jobs and we will allow our businesses to grow without Washington interference. We will secure our borders, defend our nation and bring our troops home from Afghanistan with honor and victory.
Maybe you have to live in Arizona to believe that. It doesn't seem to be working here.
