Who got it wrong?

Here's a sign at the GOP national convention in 2008:

The delegates were ordered to take it down, while other placards were allowed to remain.

Here's what the 2008 GOP Platform says: "Our determination to uphold the rule of law begins with more effective enforcement, giving our agents the tools and resources they need to protect our sovereignty, completing the border fence quickly and securing the borders, and employing complementary strategies to secure our ports of entry."

But John McCain was courting the Hispanic vote, and despite the platform plank calling for a fence, it was not part of the candidate's package.

McCain, running for another terms a Arizona Senator just two years later, would make TV commercials saying, "Complete the dang fence!"
