Conservative pundit Laura Ingraham blasted Jeb Bush for responding to a Hillary Clinton slam against him by praising President Obama.
Echoes of ’92: Hillary implies Jeb’s a bigot on stage yesterday, Jeb responds by praising Obama.

It reminded Ingraham of 1992, when then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton defeated Bush’s father, incumbent President George H.W. Bush, for the presidency.
According to Ingraham Bush was responding to this shot by Hillary at the National Urban League conference Friday:
“The real test of a candidate’s commitment is not whether we come to speak at your national conference,” Clinton said. “It’s whether we’re still around after the cameras are gone and the votes are counted. It’s whether our positions have lived up to our rhetoric.”
Bush’s response was to pander to his audience and heap praise on Obama.
He said Obama was “telling the truth” during his eulogy of the Charleston massacre victims when he said that “for too long we’ve been blind to the way past injustices continue to shape the present.”
Ingraham’s Twitter followers were equally unimpressed with Bush.

@IngrahamAngle YUP. She’s a bully against the weaklings. Jeb is milk toast. That’s why he’d be ‘toast’ in this election.
