Raddatz: Welcome Senator McCain –
what's the deal with immigration reform?
McCain: frankly we have some awesome ideas
Raddatz: good to know
McCain: honestly Republicans have finally
realized we will never win another election
if we don't stop alienating all those brown people
Raddatz: will the new law include
a path to citizenship?
McCain: did you know most of the
drugs in America come from Mexico?
Raddatz: even Viagra?
McCain: that's why we need reform!
Raddatz: you have flip-flopped on citizenship
McCain: we have armed guards in
the U.S. Senate while half of all the
old people Arizona are killed
by illegal Mexican terrorists
McCain: but let's face it –
we need those spanish voters
Raddatz: Obama is the President –
how to you feel about that?
McCain: it makes my face explode
Raddatz: the most important thing
in the world is Benghazi
McCain: Obama ignored the warnings!
Raddatz: like all the warnings before 9/11?
McCain: 7 hours went by!
Raddatz: haven't most of those
questions been answered?
McCain: it was the High Holy Day of 9/11!
McCain: what was Obama doing while
our consulate being attacked?
Playing golf? Watching movies?
Remembering how he beat me in 2008?
Raddatz: could be all three – he is a multi-tasker
McCain: Africa is detoriating since we got Qaddafi!
Raddatz: you want to arm the rebels in Syria

McCain: yes – I've met them
Raddatz: well you also met Sarah Palin
McCain: that's a low blow Martha
Raddatz: will you vote for Obama's former
Republican defense secretary?
McCain: no he's too liberal
Raddatz: what makes you say that
McCain: he believes in evolution and
doesn't want to lauch a war with Iran
Raddatz: do you support women in combat
McCain: yes but they must have the
same mental competency as people like me
Raddatz: that's a high bar indeed

Raddatz: Senator you're hispanic –
what about immigration?
Menendez: it seems the GOP has
finally seen the light
Raddatz: what do you want from Obama?
Menendez: a pathway to citizenship
and also a pardon
Raddatz: shouldn't the President
reach out more to Republicans?
Menendez: he tried that in his first term
Raddatz: but not this week
Menendez: he invited all the hispanics
in Congress to the White House
Raddatz: he could have tried to find at
least one Republican member of color
Menendez: like John Boehner?
Raddatz: isn't Benghazi a huge deal
Menendez: no it was always a fake scandal
Raddatz: do you supports Chuck Hagel?
Menendez: I am concerned he
may not love Israel enough
Raddatz: will he be confirmed?
Raddatz: where do you come down
on the Frank Lautenberg / Cory Booker feud?
Menendez: oh I'm not touching that one
Raddatz: do you think Booker was
disrespectful to that 89 year old crank?
Menendez: Martha if I've learned one
thing in Jersey politics it's when two friends
are fighting to get the hell out of the way
[ break ]
Raddatz: panel it looks like we may an
immigration agreement with a path to citizenship
Will: sure now that no one wants to
move to America anymore
Raddatz: ironic indeed
Will: to deport 11 million people would
require buses from San Diego to Alaska
so of course we need to build a human pipeline
Schweikert: People in my district live
in fear of non-existent Mexicans
Raddatz: chris you were Mark Zuckerberg's
freshman roommate and so bought
The New Republic
Hughes: yes I was – can the President lead?

Will: I think we have wrung this issue dry
Inskeep: no one cares what is said
on Sunday talk shows
Raddatz: except for this one!
Raddatz: should women serve in combat?
Will: only if they can carry a 265 lb. man 100 yards
Raddatz: George no dude can do that
Raddatz: thanks for coming
