Laura Ingraham: ‘I’m thinking of moving to Arizona’ to ‘primary challenge Sen. Jeff Flake myself’
The Daily Caller ^ | May 22, 2013 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 05/22/2013 4:03:34 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

On her Wednesday radio show, conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham attacked a number of Republican senators that voted to support the immigration reform bill on Tuesday, saying that she was thinking about moving to Arizona to primary Sen. Jeff Flake, who is up for re-election in 2018.

“Let me tell you — I am thinking of moving to Arizona,” Ingraham said. “You know why? I will primary challenge Sen. Jeff Flake myself, if that’s why this requires. Jeff Flake, living up to his last name, backed down from a previous promise his spokeswoman made to Breitbart. This is just like Marco [Rubio] breaking his promise, basically, that he would consider voting in favor of amendments to the Senate’s immigration bill that would close a loophole of allowing illegal immigrants access to state and local welfare. Jeff Flake voted with the liberals against the Ted Cruz amendment.”

Ingraham emphasized why this was an important issue and also suggested that Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Orrin Hatch be primaried for their support of this measure as well....

Laura, he’s just a lesser evil. You used to be good with that. What changed your mind?

Save your money, Laura.

The other talkshow host couldn’t take out John McCain. You would have about as much luck.

Many states don’t like ‘carpetbaggers’. Lib states seem to be the exception.

"...lesser evil...."

Juan is certainly a greater evil.

Yup. But evil is evil. Glad she had a come to Jesus moment, don’t get me wrong. More of the ‘lesser evil’ supporters need to. Because the results of the philosophy should be pretty obvious to anyone with a brain by now.

Do it, Ingraham. You will win. That is, if the Dems don’t mobilize the illegal aliens to vote.

Oh I have plenty myself. I don’t trust her any farther than I can throw her after her Romney turnaround. But I’m glad she’s making the right noises now that she finds it continent to do so. Maybe people will notice.

I still can’t get passed her early Romney support. She has the political courage of a mouse! Or should I say rat?

Well one thing is for sure. She gave no one reason to trust her. She’d be better than Flake or McCain. Maybe. But we don’t really know. She might decide that ‘Severe Conservatism’ and gay/abortion support are the way to go again.

What we need instead is someone we can trust.

Dear Laura,
I have $50.00 and a vote to contribute to your run. If I can find another 50, we will add it to the pot.

Sarah Palin has a residence in Scottsdale (I think) BUT I do not want her stuck in that wasteland called the Senate. President or Arizona Governor would work for me.

Yeah, I remember that vividly. I have not listened to her show since.

Palin supported Flake over a more conservative candidate in the primary

In the House Flake was working w Luis Guitterez on an Amnesty bill of their own...he has always been Amnesty Liberal

Yes she does have a residence in Arizona. Can’t you imagine what the Senate would be like with Ingraham and Palin representing Arizona instead of McCain and Flake.

Since McCain’s wife is selling at least one of their Arizona residences I wonder if we dare hope that he’s retiring at the end of his current term.

Someone we can trust is hard to come by now days. It seems like trust isn’t a part of most peoples personal beliefs anymore as long as they string us along so that they achieve their personal goals.

Trust isn’t part of the American lexicon anymore for those that must have their way.

Laura or Sarah both have my vote. Anything to get rid of the treasonous bass turd, Flake.

I’ll never forget listening to her berate conservatives in Utah for trying to knock out Orrin Hatch in the primaries. He played her (and lots of other talk show hosts) like a fish! Tell me again, Laura, how we needed Orrin’s vote in the Senate?

I like Laura...always have.

That said....she's weaved off the rez...more times than I can count.

At some point in time she needed to smell the roses...about HATCH. He's a RINO...and needs to go to pasture and shut the hell up!

Same with McCain.......

Laura dear...my friend, start figuring out where THE PEOPLE are...and run with them. Not the establishment.....

I know you know this....but you've swerved off the path.

You ever want to talk I'm available.

Flake might have been blackmailed into his switch. And reading about his son’s tweets I can guess how he was blackmailed.

Palin has gone absolutely silent while amnesty is about to sell this country down the river.
