    On today's Morning Joe, liberal Republican Nicolle Wallace sought to slough off a Politico article reporting that Jeb Bush is losing the influential "Laura Ingraham primary." Claimed Wallace, who served as Jeb's press secretary when he was governor of Florida, Ingraham "hates everybody. She always hates the Republicans more than the Democrats at this point, too." Wallace even suggested that Ingraham's criticism of McCain [for whom Wallace also worked] and Romney contributed to their defeats: "will we ever wonder what effect that has in the outcome; both guys lost? Do we think it's good to cheer down our own side?...

    Glenn Beck wants listeners to pray for him. Mark Levin says Fox News is out to get him. Hugh Hewitt calls him an “intellectual leader.” Rush Limbaugh thinks his campaign launch was “masterful.” Laura Ingraham hails him as “Reaganesque.” Erick Erickson considers him a “good friend.” Ted Cruz may be trailing in the polls and strapped for cash, but the first declared candidate of the 2016 race is winning in at least one key contest — the conservative talk-show primary. Tens of millions of listeners — and potential GOP primary voters — tune in each week to the biggest right-wing...

    Jeb Bush has a serious Matt Drudge problem, and that points to a more fundamental electoral problem. Among the most prominent DrudgeReport.com headlines Thursday evening: POLL: 54% WANT FRESH FACES IN '16....NH voters pan Bush...Jeb Still Refuses to Rule Out Tax Hikes... The prior Friday, during his New Hampshire debut as a likely 2016 presidential candidate, much of the mainstream media was gushing over Bush's substance, his accessibility and his refusal to pander to the right on issues like immigration reform. But Drudge offered these headlines: RUBIO ON RISE...JEB STRUGGLES FROM WITHIN...Says his view on immigration is 'grown-up plan'...WALKER: 'WE...

    “He’s not a conservative.” That’s Rush Limbaugh talking about Jeb Bush. “The ideal, the perfect ticket, for the 2016 election: Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush. Now, they can figure out who’s on top of the ticket on their own, but when you compare their positions, Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush, on the key, important issues, they are two peas in the same pod.” That, too. “You know what Jeb Bush is? He’s an old-time liberal Republican.” That’s Mark Levin . “If I had to bet right now, he’d be the nominee; and if I had to bet right now, he’ll lose.”...

    A local NAACP president spoke out against how illegal immigrants are using up public resources that would have otherwise gone to people of color in the country legally on “The Laura Ingraham Show” Monday. Bob Ross, president of the Maryland Prince George’s County NAACP, was on the show to discuss his efforts to lobby against Prince George County’s efforts to create two high schools specifically for recent immigrants and dedicated to teaching students English. The local NAACP chapter is vocally against the proposal, with Ross calling it ”separate but equal.” (RELATED: NAACP Battles Latino Group Over Special Schools For Immigrant...

    Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham used her speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to slam moderate former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R). The influential talker suggested that Bush, who is quickly becoming a favorite of the Republican establishment, could even run on the same ticket as likely Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton because of their policy similarities. "Why don't we just call it quits, and Jeb and Hillary can run on the same ticket," she said to applause. Ingraham's criticism reflects the way that conservative base is skeptical of Bush, who has locked down the support of many establishment...

In her speech Friday morning, the conservative talk-show host opened with a warning shot at Bush, asking attendees to raise their hands if they were skeptical of another Bush presidency. The crowd applauded. "Jeb and Hillary could run on the same ticket," Ingraham continued. "The idea that we should conduct any kind of coronation ... because 50 rich families decide who will best decide their interests? No way, Jose." She went on to jab at Bush...

    In all its fury and unanimity, the response from the right to President Obama’s decision to change immigration policy without the consent of Congress was the manifestation of a major transformation within the Tea Party. What started five years ago as a groundswell of conservatives committed to curtailing the reach of the federal government, cutting the deficit and countering the Wall Street wing of the Republican Party has become a movement largely against immigration overhaul. The politicians, intellectual leaders and activists who consider themselves part of the Tea Party have redirected their energy from advocating fiscal austerity and small government...

    As we now move into the official Political Aftermath period of the Boston bombing — the period that will determine the long-term legislative fallout of the atrocity — the dynamics of privilege will undoubtedly influence the nation’s collective reaction to the attacks. That’s because privilege tends to determine: 1) which groups are — and are not — collectively denigrated or targeted for the unlawful actions of individuals; and 2) how big and politically game-changing the overall reaction ends up being. This has been most obvious in the context of recent mass shootings. In those awful episodes, a religious or ethnic...

    11/29 - UPDATED. DCRTV hears that DC-based political talker Laura Ingraham (right) could soon return to the airwaves via a brokered deal with DC area talker WTNT, 730 AM/102.9 FM. Ingraham, who had been heard until early this week on WTNT, recently announced that she's leaving her syndicator, TRN. But, we're told, she does not yet have another national radio distribution deal set up. Sources tell us that she's been talking to Clear Channel's Premiere and Cumulus. That leaves her with the short-term possibility of buying time from WTNT and doing her show from its Fairfax studios, allowing her to...

    The shock of last night’s electoral outcome in the presidential race is setting in for some conservatives. But just how it was lost seems to be up for the debate. On Laura Ingraham’s Wednesday radio show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter and Ingraham debated who is to blame. Coulter, author of “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama,” was less willing to fault the candidate Mitt Romney, while Ingraham put the loss mostly on the shoulders of those running the Romney campaign. COULTER: I think Romney ran just on his own force of will, a magnificent campaign. I think he...

    LAURA INGRAHAM: I think about Susan Rice going out there on this show and four other shows on Sunday and I'd like to know, did Susan Rice have any direct or indirect contact with anyone from the Obama campaign? David Axelrod? Plouffe? Maybe Valerie Jarrett, she still works in the White House, but obviously very close to the President. Tom Donilon. I would like to know that. I'd like Mr. Axelrod to answer that question. I would hope that the New York Times, as they camped outside of Scooter Libby's house during the whole Valerie Plame thing -- are you...

    Mitt Romney‘s campaign has suffered in the head-to-head polls against President Barack Obama following his party’s national convention. Conservative radio host Laura Ingraham told Fox & Friends on Monday that the Romney campaign has no excuse for being behind in the polls in this economic environment. She went on to say that statements from some of Romney’s staffers asking supporters to ignore the polls reminds her of 2006, when Republicans lost control of Congress. After introducing Ingraham, Gretchen Carlson played a clip of White House Press Sec. Jay Carney making the case that the economy President Obama inherited from President...

    Yesterday on Laura IngrahamÂ’s radio show, she asked Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell about a recent Roll Call article that framed me as one of the loud leaders of conservatives opposed to Mitch McConnell. The Senator from Kentucky responded that he had never heard of me and I did not have an audience. That sounds a bit like the child, when asked if he ate the cookie, replying that he had not and besides it did not taste good. If heÂ’d never heard of me, how can he comment on my audience? If he states plainly I have no audience,...
