In 2010, RINO relic John McCain , 79, was doing what he normally does during a re-election year — acting like a conservative in order to dupe Arizona voters into voting for the man who replaced legendary conservative Arizona senator, the late, great Barry Goldwater in 1987.
The highlight of McCain’s campaign deception was a TV ad entitled “Complete the Danged Fence,” in which McCain is trolling along the Mexican border in Nogales, AZ, discussing “drug and human smuggling, home invasions, murder” caused by the porous border with AZ Sheriff Paul Babeu.
“Of all the illegals in America, more than half come through Arizona,” Babeu informs the baseball cap-wearing McCain. “You bring troops, state, county and local law enforcement together,” he proposed.
“And, complete the danged fence,” McCain adds.
“It’ll work this time. Senator, you’re one of us,” Babeu throws in, a line he probably wishes he never uttered because McCain proved — again — that he is not “one of us.”
After his re-election win over former Congressman J.D. Hayworth, now a Newsmax TV host, McCain not only did not fight to secure the border and enforce immigration laws, but did exactly the opposite, joining the 2013 “Gang of Eight” to try to pass amnesty for illegal aliens who came in because McCain did nothing to build “the danged fence.”
Fast forward six years, and McCain is pulling shenanigans again as RedState reports:
This year McCain is running on the same ticket as a president who also wants to “complete the danged fence.” You’d think he would be happy to pull this out of the archives, dust it off, and run it again. Right? Right?
His Democrat challenger, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, pretty much did that. She took the 2010 John McCain ad, burned in Spanish subtitles, and released it on YouTube. Hilarity ensued.
That’s right. McCain’s campaign demanded that Kirkpatrick take down McCain’s own ad.
Obviously, there is no copyright violation by Ann Kirkpatrick , McCain’s Democrat opponent should he make it past his contested conservative primary opponents Kelli Ward and Alex Meluskey. McCain was just using a dirty trick to keep her from using his own words against him.

Last month, McCain announced that, for the first time in over 30 years, he would not be attending the Republican National Convention, feeling that he needs to be campaigning instead.
