 Phoenix, AZ - White House press secretary Robert Gibbs  actually told it like it is at his Thursday, June 3rd  briefing - President Obama wants the amnesty-loving convenient conservative John McCain - not the election-year "tough" on the border John McCain -- back in the Senate.
"John McCain was very instrumental in getting immigration reform to the point that it was in 2005, 2006 and 2007," Gibbs told reporters. "I doubt we're going to get comprehensive immigration reform if we don't have John McCain doing - doing what he believed in, in those years." The only issue he has not changed his tune on, except at election time.
Comprehensive immigration reform was the code phase for granting illegal immigrants amnesty and is what McCain and the late Sen. Ted Kennedy proposed.
In 2008, McCain said, in part, his comprehensive immigration plan would "... recognize the important economic necessity of immigrant laborers ...".
While McCain went on to claim that he wanted to secure the border first, clearly his first priority was granting and remains granting amnesty to illegal aliens, as the White House yesterday acknowledged.
The campaign of U.S. Senate Candidate J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ) said even the President has seen through the convenient election year conversion McCain has undergone on the immigration issue.

"The President knows full well he will have an ally in John McCain when it comes to granting amnesty to illegal aliens, just has he knows J.D. Hayworth will fight amnesty tooth and nail," said spokesman Mark Sanders.
"But we are glad at least one person in the McCain camp - the President - is telling the truth about what McCain plans to do if he is re-elected," he said.
