I Hate To Say I Told You So...

No, that's not true. I LOVE to say I told you so, and I TOLD YOU SO! McCain lied to us my friends, about his stance on immigration reform. He mavericked the crap outta the truth and then went right back to his same old same old. I just can't believe he was brazen enough to do it so soon. I was expecting it to happen after the convention. I'm not the only blogger calling Senator F. U. on it.

John Hawkins, author of those famous articles "Why You're Going To Vote For John McCain In November And Like It!" and "There's Nothing Conservative Or Principled About Helping A Democrat Beat John McCain In November," has now jumped from the moving Straight Talk Express and shoulder rolled back into reality.
Put very simply: John McCain is a liar. He’s a man without honor, without integrity, who could not have captured the Republican nomination had he run on making comprehensive immigration a top priority of his administration. Quite frankly, this is little different from George Bush, Sr. breaking his “Read my lips, no new taxes pledge,” except that Bush’s father was at least smart enough to wait until he got elected before letting all of his supporters know that he was lying to them.
You can read his whys and wherefores in "Why I will No Longer Support John McCain For President." The gist of it though is that McCain lied and is not trustworthy. More from John here including this gem:
In this case, being lied to and disrespected in this fashion is a dealbreaker for me and I'm not voting for McCain over it. Other people may look at the alternative and quite understandably choose to vote for McCain. I understand their position, but very respectfully disagree.

Additionally, some people have pointed out that refusing to vote for McCain actually helps the Democratic nominee and that whether it's Obama or Clinton, the country would be better off with McCain.

That's very true.

But personally, I think that there has got to be some kind of line in the sand that these politicians cannot be allowed to cross. In McCain's case, he lied about the single most important issue in determining many people's votes, is the Republican Party's nominee only because he told that lie, and now he has publicly shifted positions in a way that reveals he was lying the whole time -- and he did so before the election. Here's a man who has so little respect for conservatives that he doesn't even feel compelled to wait until he's elected to reveal that he wasn't telling them the truth about an issue they care desperately about.
He's not alone:
