McCain McAmnesty

John McCain quoted Joseph Lieberman during a Republican Debate saying that anyone (Thompson, Romney, etc.) is a liar if they ever call the McCain-Kennedy Plan "Amnesty," but the hypocrite McCain himself said he was for "Amnesty" back in 2003:

“McCain Pushes Amnesty, Guest-Worker Program,” reported the Tucson Citizen of May 29, 2003. The senator is quoted as saying: “Amnesty has to be an important part because there are people who have lived in this country for 20, 30 or 40 years, who have raised children here and pay taxes here and are not citizens. That has to be a component of it.” The newspaper also quoted McCain as saying: “I think we can set up a program where amnesty is extended to a certain number of people who are eligible and at the same time make sure that we have some control over people who come in and out of this country.”
