Skip to comments.JEB BUSH ADVISER AFTER CANTOR LOSS: LAURA INGRAHAM 'PAPER TIGER'
Posted on 06/17/2014 9:04:23 PM PDT by kingattax
Conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham help propel Dave Brat to one of the biggest upsets in political history and may have helped destroy amnesty legislation in this Congress despite the hundreds of millions spent to push it.
Brat ousted House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) last week when his message tying Cantor to crony capitalism and corporate welfare that stiffs working Americans only resonated after he started to hammer Cantor on his support for amnesty legislation. Brat, an economics professor, often said amnesty was the greatest issue that symbolizes the divide between Wall Street elitists and Main Street Americans.
But Mike Murphy, a conservative-bashing consultant who often acts like the "priests" he so despises, has been proclaiming otherwise, even though he did not even pay attention to the race. Murphy, a top Jeb Bush adviser who wants to destroy any suggestion that Republicans may not like amnesty in order to help his client, referred to Ingraham as a "paper tiger" on Sunday.

especially coming from "captain common core's" main advisor.
His brother George said she was his favorite radio host.That would be the President when he was President.
Hey Jeb, how are those superior latino “family values” working out? They’re abandoning 10’s or even 100’s of thousands of their children. Yep, they’re so much better than we Americans. And oh, they work better and are more fertile too.
Jeb, your “noble savage” racism is insulting.
Give Laura the opportunity and she’d staple this guy Murphy’s nads to her office door.
i’m sure jeb believes that his paid goon insulting laura was an “act of love”
you can bet grandpa’s hat on that ! she is tough !
Keep talking, Jebbie advisors.
I don’t get why Ingraham is getting all the attention.
Brat went on all the talkers’s shows. I think Levin has more influence than Laury.
She's not in the business of running for office or running some part of government.
She's in the idea business, i.e. writing great thoughts on PAPER and then presenting them to her huge audience.
And Laura is definitely a tigress when it comes to composing her thoughts and broadcasting them to her listeners.
great point !
Does Laura Ingraham do any better in the Virginia radio market because she is based closer to VA?
She lives in the beltway.
What is the radio market like in Brat’s district? Is it the same as Boehner’s district?
“Brat went on all the talkerss shows. I think Levin has more influence than Laury.”
I love Mark Levin, but Laura was on to Brat and supporting him long before Levin was.
Three kids, no dad. Nice role model.
It’s the FOX connection. FOX has given Laura more face time than Levin, whom I prefer, actually, but Laura was linked with FOX even before her radio program, and that visibility link nets her more of the credit and plenty of push back criticism than she may deserve, and more than Mark. Especially from the Left.
Mike Murphy called Laura a paper tiger.
I’m guessing this is the same guy who managed McCain’s failed bid against obama.
If it is, he must really hate conservative women: first Palin and now Laura.
Here’s Laury’s philosophy:
Dads! Ugh. Good God Y’all! What are they good for? Absolutely nothing!
steve schmidt was mccain’s campaign manager in 2008.
murphy who had previously advised romney and mccain wanted to be a neutral unofficial advisor to both of them.
one big happy family.
“Three kids, no dad. Nice role model.”
Laura was engaged to a jerk who dumped her when she got breast cancer. She then decided to adopt unwanted children from Russia and rescued them from orphanages where too often the children are very neglected. She does her radio program from her home, gets book royalties and occasional TV and makes plenty of money to support her 3 children without having to be married to someone nasty like you who obviously knows nothing about her life.
Many radio hosts will take on Democrats but Laura is willing to take on Republicans and pin them to the mat especially on the issue of immigration. She is not afraid to rough up Republicans when she sniffs Rino-ism. For that alone she stands out.
Ingraham drives relentlessly with an indomitable single-mindedness concerning the amnesty threat and she deserves great credit for what she accomplished in that race and for the larger accomplishment of taking immigration "reform" off the table for this Congress.
Yes, she is possessed of annoying personal habits, born of arrogance and fed by her passionate commitment, which burst out in interrupting guests and dominating interviews with endless filibusters. This is a small price to pay for someone who gets it and who is doing it.
