Tea party talks CPAC walkout on Jeb Bush; Laura Ingraham rouses crowd with vicious attack

Amid talk of a tea party walkout on Jeb Bush’s speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, conservative radio host Laura Ingraham used her speech Friday to tear a strip off the perceived 2016 Republican presidential frontrunner.

“How many of you guys are skeptical of another Bush term?” she asked the crowd Friday morning to cheers.

Ingraham, who had a small, just-waking crowd for the 8:30 a.m. speech, said there wasn’t much difference between Bush and Democrat frontrunner Hillary Clinton, saying both are for Common Core and large government surveillance.

“Why don’t we just call it quits,” she said. “Jeb and Hillary can run on the same ticket.”

Her comments came just hours before Bush’s scheduled appearance at CPAC Friday afternoon and rumors are rampant that tea partiers will stage a walkout during his speech.

Talk of the walkout was reported by the Washington Times.

William Temple, a member of the Golden Isle Tea Party, told The Washington Times that the party doesn’t need another Bush in office, and said that the party should listen to the grass-roots activists that helped fuel their gains in the 2014 election.

“A lot of people were not going to come here because they heard Jeb Bush was speaking,” Mr. Temple said …. before laying out his plan at the Conservative Political Action Conference.

“We are going to get up en masse, and we are going to walk out on him,” the 64-year-old said. “We are not going to interrupt anyone’s speech, but we are all going to exercise our right to [use] the bathroom at the same time.”

Many on Twitter chimed to support Ingraham’s Ingraham’s speech.
