Mark Levin calls out Ann Coulter for unfairly trashing Newt Gingrich
The Right Scoop ^ | Dec. 16, 2011 | The Right Scoop

Posted on 12/16/2011 7:53:28 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY

Mark Levin accuses Ann Coulter (and BillO) of using what is a perfect opportunity to discuss Newt’s comments last night on changing the judiciary to instead trash him in favor of her candidate, calling him bombastic and minimizing him by saying that he never achieves anything anyway:

She won’t even give the man credit for what he has achieved! Taking back the House from 44 years of Democrat monopoly was never thought possible and in doing so he had to defeat the Republican establishment! You can’t even give him that?

No they can’t, because they have a hate-on. They have a hate-on. …

Do you know why I resent this? Because now we have a bunch of bullies running around. And Giuliani was 100% right. They’re trying to turn this guy into a crazy man.

And I resent it and I resist it! He’s not even my guy and I resent it and I resist it!

In Mann Coulter's case, it probably IS a hard-on.

The attackers of Mr. Gingrich are the same ones
who attacked Gov. Palin.

Each year they throw the Election to the DNC.

Mark is right on target. I hope this effort to demonize Newt fails big time because the RINOs ultimate goal is to stuff Mitt Romney down our throats. I like Mark am fed up with what is going on.

AC says Mitt is a conservative.

Hard to believe that such a small and stupid opinion can sully a lifetime of good conservative work...

...but it does.

O’Reilly made one of the most inane arguments I’ve ever heard on the matter of the judical overreach Newt addressed.

O’Reilly actually said that “Roe v. Wade is the law” absolutely making Newt’s point. But O’Reilly is such a bucket of stupidity he couldn’t figure it out if you gave him a hundred years to do it.

As for Ann, she is a shill for Romney at this point and will say nothing trustworthy about the primary/nomination process heretofore.

I’m not even in favor of Newt, I don’t trust him, but he was way right (for a change) on the matter of reigning in the totalitarian judges.

I watched her on with BOR and for one thing, it was the most serious, least flippant appearance by Ann Coulter I can remember. She seems to settle down and stay focused when it’s time to trash Newt on national TV. He main point seemed to be to call him “bombastic” (as if that’s a bad thing) and belittle his accomplishments.

I’m not convinced Newt is the right choice, but I’m damned sure not going to be influenced by conservative pundits trash-talking conservative candidates. When the candidates go after each other, that’s part of the process - it’s a contact sport. But Ann, just write your silly books if you can’t think of anything more constructive to add.

Next I won’t be surprised to hear Ann making fun of Newt’s weight...

Heck, liberal Leslie Marshall was more supportive of Newt than Coulter was.

When the establishment, left and right, trashes Newt, it only steels the resolve of conservatives. I agree with Levin, Newt is not the best or most conservative candidate, but the establishment is loathed most of all. The establishment must realize at some point, their attacks on Newt will backfire.

What got me on the whole BOR thing was no sympathy for what Newt is trying to stop. Newt did not say that the executuve branch was going to be the sole intervenor against bad judges, just provide leadership; use the bully pulpit.

What many of us don’t like is when the voters pass a referendum and the losing side shops for a judge to overturn. At least Newt articulates the problem.

When Ann was hyping the FARINO (Fat Ass Republican In Name Only) Christie for president she lost a lot of conservative street cred.

What little she has left she is busy squandering by hating on Newt and loving on the LARINO (Lying Ass Republican In Name Only) Romney.

Agree; and 'totally fed up' as well and in explaining that; was close to 'combat' level with RNC voice wanting contributions - so that 'they' could support our candidates.

He would not quit; and neither would I. Told him; my donations go to MY candidate of 'choice'; and that I would write my own check - to Newt - as I did not need RNC picking candidate 'for me'; nor did I need them as 'middleman'.

Had the feeling by his determined - almost practiced - response; that RNC not finding it as easy; as it once was; to make those calls. . .

O’Reilly’s assault on Gingrich tonight (12/16) was a veritable treasure trove of ignorance regarding the power of the people through their elected legislature to counter an over-zealous judiciary.

AC says Mitt is a conservative.

I am no particular fan of Ann Coulter, or Mitt Romney, but why is she so wrong on this? Okay, he has certainly taken less than conservative positions in the past, but he seems to be holding to a reasonably conservative line right now. Should we believe that all conservatives must be born that way? Why can't conservatives be reformed liberals? After all, Newt has taken a rather soft line on GSE's, single payer health care plans, and other such issues, and seems unreformed on some of them. I honestly don't see why we should be trashing either of these guys in that sense. But in the end I am more concerned with what they are promoting today than what they thought ten years ago, and in that Mitt may actually have a lead on Newt.

I’ve had it with Coulter to the point that I change the channel or station when she comes on. She does occasionally still make a good point or two, but after backing Christie and now Mittens, she can no longer seriously claim to be conservative. On top of that, sometimes she is so shrill, catty, nasty, etc. that she automatically discredits conservatives. I really wish that she would STFU.

Coulter should know better. O'Reilly's arrogant assertions reveal his shallow understanding of the founding principles and his arrogance in revealing it to his audience.

Regarding Coulter's statements about Newt's "bombastic" style being a negative for a presidential candidate, does she forget that just a few months ago she was wildly wishing for Christie to run and praising his merits? Not exactly a shrinking violet there, and with far less substantial underpinnings in the Founders' ideas.

Now, one more thing, there's a bit more hypocrisy in Michelle Bachman's relentless attacks on the conservatism of Gingrich. Her debate attacks on Newt are in sharp contrast to her words of praise for him in this video, which includes her attributing the title of "architect" of the conservative movement and "renaissance man," among other high honors, to Gingrich. See: here. Newt should use this video clip in commercials, beginning tomorrow.

He has no political conservative record—ALL and I mean ALL of the other candidates have at least SOME conservative behavior in their public service pasts.

He wants us to take his word that he is NOW conservative.

I don’t see Ann Coulter or anyone else giving their opinion on the candidates as any different than what you or I do here on FR most days.

So, they do it on tv and we don’t. It’s still the same thing.

Thanks for posting this.

I am a Levin fan, although I wasn’t able to listen tonight. And I don’t always agree with him (or anybody for that matter.) I wondered if he would respond in some way when Newt nearly quoted “Men In Black” chapter and verse during last night’s debate.

(Am sure you heard as well; the RNC formulation per 'winning strategy'. . .telling candidates to NOT criticize Obama; lest you anger those who are 'supposedly' now; feeling sorry for him.

Levin has done a good job of defending Gingrich, even though he’s not really much of a fan.

He also blasted Newt’s idea of hauling judges to congressional hearings, and wondered if Newt would like judges to be able to serve bench warrants against legislators.

The attackers of Mr. Gingrich are the same ones who attacked Gov. Palin. Each year they throw the Election to the DNC.

I liked Palin so much that I voted for her as a write-in in '08. The ones who threw the election to the DNC were the McCain supporters. And this year, they are supporting McNewt.

I would hope that everyone would have learned their lesson after the last debacle and throw their support to a conservative candidate this time. But instead, we get another old fart who will talk about how great things were when Clinton was President.

If I thought for a second that Newt would be an effective conservative chief executive, I would support him. But knowing Newt, I also know that this simply is not the case. If it wasn't for fear of Romney, we wouldn't even be entertaining the thought of supporting a N. Leroy Gingrich candidacy.

Let me get this straight. Ann Coulter (who once said "We should invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity") is calling Newt out for being bombastic. Did she giggle when she said that or was her complaint that Newt has been infringing on her copyrighted material?

Perhaps, but neither does a first time candidate. And, in some cases, people like Romney are actually restrained by their previous errors. Consider how strenuously his position on health care has to have been asserted specifically because of his previous weaknesses. I have a feeling that he may be the most trustworthy on that simply because he knows people are watching him very closely on it.

Sorry, ain’t going to buy a used car from THAT slick trick.

Well, I won't criticise that position, though I think there is room for seeing where people like Ann Coulter come from on him. I am open to accepting he is truly interested in pursuing what is generally a conservative course, though I am not enthusiastic about him. Not a really inspiring candidate if you ask me.

The Great One is right as usual. And some are doing it to Bachmann, some are doing it to Perry, some did it to Cain and some are doing it to Santorum. All but a few have picked their guy and have tossed all principle aside to attack the other candidates. In ten years here I have never seen such a level of infantile knee-jerk me-me-meism.

O’Reilly knows what he’s doing. He clearly understands they were trashing Newt Gingrich.

He did not have the jouralistic ethics to point out that Coulter last election endorsed Mitt Romney and this time has already indicated she will do so again.

The dirty little secret none of them spoke to:

The Congress created the 9th circuit court so the Congress can take it away or revamp it or revise.

The same with any court except the SCOTUS that is itself a creation of the US Constitution. HOWEVER, even with Scotus CONGRESS has the authority to prevent the court from reviewing any piece of legislation it authors.

That fact in the Constitution overcomes ALL arguments that SCOTUS was intended to be the sole arbiter of the meaning of the US Constitution.

And if that isn’t understood, then the Constitution enables the CONGRESS to impeach, try, and oust any judge it wishes to.
