Schneider: Who can talk toughest on immigration?

ST. PETERSBURG, Florida (CNN) - All these guys are trying to out tough-talk each other on illegal immigration. Including John McCain. They clearly got the same message from McCain's spectacular fall from grace this summer: Conservatives will not support any Republican who is in any way sympathetic to illegal immigrants. Including President Bush.

    Great to see illegal immigration being covered so much in the debate. It's about time that it became a key issue in the election.

    If you like Bush, you'll love McCain, he is nothing more than a me too Bush and we have had all we can stand of Bush.
    I certainly ever want to see another Bush, much less have one or a shadow of one in the whitehouse.

    Republicans are a bunch of hipocrites, once the general election starts they will dramatically change their views to suck-up to Hispanic voters. It will be too late.

    Sad fact: immigration is a "political issue" or "hand out" vs. a legal right to live somewhere. The laws have been written and everyone is afraid of calling out Mexicans that break laws illegaly entering the USA. Our country is the world ER. We take in everybody, fix them up, and then pay for it....for a few cheaper lawns being cut, houses built, dumbing down our schools with Spanish, and granting rights to a group of people who do not believe in birth control.
