To folow up on the article Obama Unjustly Takes Credit for Immigration Reform by Minimizing McCain Senator Mel Martinez in a report by Fox News has also pointed out that Obama is now championing legislation that he actually helped kill.
McCain, who worked on comprehensive reform efforts in the run-up to his presidential bid, is pushing back hard against Obama, who described himself this week as a “champion” of such immigration legislation.
“The crux of the issue is, when the chips were down, when we were desperate to round up votes, Obama was killing comprehensive immigration by offering up a poison pill (of controversial amendments),” said Florida Sen. Mel Martinez in a McCain conference call. “Now he takes credit for the immigration effort. … He was AWOL. … Nothing could be further from the truth.”
