Ingraham Brings Up Obvious; Ellmers Balks

0Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) freaked out on Laura Ingraham this morning when the host waded into waters fathoms over the congresswoman’s head.

Breitbart:

Rep. Renee Ellmers had been on Laura Ingraham’s nationally-syndicated radio program to talk about Obamacare and North Carolina politics Thursday, but when the conversation turned to immigration about five minutes into the interview, things got ugly.

Ellmers, under fire on amnesty from calm but insistent questioning from Ingraham, called her host “small minded,” “ignorant,” and claimed to be the author of a ubiquitious [sic] immigration talking point, adopting the third person to say “Renee Ellmers thinks for herself.”

Hear the audio here.

The epic bout began when Ingraham brought up Ellmers’ primary challenger Frank Roche and asked why she supports a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens. While Ellmers initially denied supporting amnesty, she eventually backed legal status and said “We have to deal with those who are here illegally, who are living in the shadows. That’s what we have to deal with.”

“What you just said is infuriating to my listeners,” Ingraham responded. “I’m speaking for them right now. Your responsibility, I’d imagine, is to your constituents who are legal residents and American citizens, whose lives are slipping away from them right now.”

It goes on a bit with Ellmers saying:

“Let’s look at it from a law enforcement perspective alone,” Ellmers continued after a back-and-forth with Ingraham. “If we had a system in place where individuals who are here illegally admit that they have broken the law, pay a penalty, pay a fine, go through a process that would be lengthy—I mean this isn’t something that would happen overnight.”

“Laura, my point there is someone isn’t just going to walk into an office and walk out with earned legal status,” Ellmers added a short time later…

Then Ingraham moved in for the kill:

“That’s conceding that our free market system of wages to workers doesn’t work,” Ingraham said in response to a comment Ellmers made where she cited business interests in her district who pleaded for foreign workers at a recent forum. Ingraham referenced how her mother worked jobs “that y’all say Americans won’t do” to put her through college.

“And I believe that,” Ellmers responded. “That is exactly what we have to protect. But the fact of the matter is we have a system that’s broken. And whether you say that’s a liberal line or not—“

“It is a liberal line,” Ingraham interjected, noting that for the third time in the interview. “It’s repeated by all of your enemies repeatedly.”

At that point, things got nasty. “The line that you’re repeating is union-speak,” Ellmers told Ingraham.

Ingraham quickly corrected Ellmers: “The unions are for amnesty. Let me tell you who’s on your side on this: Unions because they want more members, Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Menendez, every liberal in the Senate is on your side.”

But, other than them, everyone else agrees with you, Rep. Ellmers. Just a few tea party flacks like, well, I can’t think of one right now except for Laura Ingraham, but just a few wingnut extremists like Ingraham don’t agree with you… because stupid!

Rep. Ellmers’ performance today reminded me of an old Jeff Foxworthy routine. You might be a RINO if you tout “broken immigration” while scolding Julio for not raking the leaves… You might be a RINO if you talk family values but think bisexual should be a college elective.

We can go on, but shut up!
