    I don't see anything wrong with this unless you are a Bush supporter.

    Ivve heard enough. Hes a common core whore, an open boarders traitor and thinks govment is the answer. Three strikes in my book. Big ones.

    I can't imagine what's to be gained by walking out on someone anyway. I've sat through until the bitter end listening to some of these politicians - yes, even Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden. I want to chew my left eyeball out while doing so, but it's always better to listen and then decide. And I agree that protestors are distractions that are unfair to those who want to listen.
    Greetings, tres borrachos.

    : Well, this is certainly a new approach - showing up in the first place so they can cause a disturbance by walking out? Why prove to the world that there are idiots running around loose? It's not like it's a surprise speaker or anything! If you don't like the guy or gal, stay home - some people may actually want to hear what they have to say! Yeah, really! Sheesh!

    Hi Pol, he's one of many speakers at the convention. I don't think they're showing up just for the purpose of protesting him. I think they probably go to hear the other speakers.

    Well now that everyone knows their plan, I wonder if they will follow through? Kinda looses its oomph at this point, don't you think?

    It doesn't seem to be hate so much as it does simple mistrust of someone with the last name of Bush. Many folks have been aware for years of the fundamental intellectual bankruptcy of our 2 party political system. It's a scam, and that's why the TP got started in the first place as I recall.

    They don't hate Jeb, they simply disrespect him and intend to show it in public. I hope they follow through with their plans, but it probably is a bluff.

    I am curious as to who their favorite candidate is. Walker?
    Lets not forget, should Jeb be the GOP nominee, these same people will rally around him and against the DNC candidate, no questions asks.
    To sum it up in a nutshell, grandstanding, nothing more
    i think it is a wise response from the right wing of the GOP
    he appears to be the default candidate if there is no obstruction to his nomination
    by showing how much potential republican support would dissolve if he is their standard bearer - by the other attendees seeing a much less crowded room - would be a demonstration with visual impact
    on the other hand, if the righties do not follow through, it will have the opposite effect of demonstrating that jeb is THE valid contender for the party

    I don't necessarily agree with them, but that hardly makes them childish.
    Declaring you are going to have a big walk out is no different than "If I can't win, I am going to take my ball and go home."

    i disagree
    it's like a vote
    only showing one is against something rather than for it
    kind of like most voters each election cycle
