Coulter: Romney should fire his spokesman for that RomneyCare response to the steelworker ad
Via Mediaite, inquiring conservatives on Twitter are asking: Er, isnt Ann Coulter herself famously a big fan of RomneyCare?
Answer: Yeah, but Im not sure its Andrea Sauls mention of RomneyCare thats really bugging her. Mediaites transcript:
Her response was not that it was despicable, not that Bain that Romney had left Bain five years earlier or the woman died five years after the plant closed and didnt even get her insurance from her husband, her response was, Well, if she had lived in Massachusetts with Mitt Romneys health care plan, she would have had health insurance. Anyone who donates to Mitt Romney, and I mean the big donors, ought to say if Andrea Saul isnt fired and off the campaign tomorrow, they are not giving another dime, because it is not worth fighting for this man if this is the kind of spokesman he has Theres no point in you doing your show, theres no point in going to the convention and pushing for this man if hes employing morons like this. This ad is the turning point and she has nearly snatched victory from the jaws of defeat! She should be off the campaign.
I think shes irritated mainly because Saul is playing Obamas game by treating the steelworker ad as legitimate. You dont respond to a smear like that by addressing it on the merits; you respond by explaining why its a smear and how it reveals just what a fraud the Hopenchange aura is. Its an opportunity to attack with righteous fury, and somehow Saul blew it by stepping on her own message with the health-care aside
Beyond that, its not inconsistent for Coulter to worry that touting RomneyCare might alienate other conservatives even if it wouldnt necessarily alienate her. You can support legalizing gay marriage while also grasping that Romney endorsing SSM would destroy him with social conservatives and all but end his chances to win. Shes taking a similar position here, I think. Whatever her own feelings, flying the flag of RomneyCare at this point is not a good move. Or am I giving her too much credit and she really has flipped 180 on this issue?
Golly Gee, Ann! Where have you been?? Oh, I forgot, you've been doing everything possible to get Romney nominated and bad-mouthing everybody trying to prevent his nomination.
Romney should fire this dolt, and any other worthless moderates he has working for him. But will he? I think we all know the anser: "my campaign's not about that."
More and more my long held suspicion that Romeny a la Mcpain is going to take a fall seems likley . If Mitts picks somebody bo bo boring like Paw Paw Plenty or Paw Paw Pawtman you’ll know the fix was in .
Mittens, the homo-hugging abortion enthusiast, and father of Ubama’s communist health care should fire himself.
If Saul is representative of the game Romney is going to bring, to quote Rush from 2008: “We are soooooooooooo screwed!”
Romney needs to up his game and Saul is NOT it. These kinds of mistakes [Saul’s remark regarding Romneycare in MA] should not be happening this late into the campaign.
Romney needs to take corrective measures immediately. [Fire her!]
They simply have no idea what this country is about.
That’s because they’re all worthless moderates here. They don’t understand conservatism or speak the language. Any one of us on this site could have hit that one out of the park.
Well this is good news for our Daily Kos / Net Roots members.
Mitt will not hit back.
Rush Limbaugh: “That’s a potential gold mine for the Obamaites, because they can say, “Well, yeah, and Romneycare’s the foundation for our plan, Obamacare,” which they are already out there saying.”
Yeah, counter punching has always been tough for Romney to do. Unless, of course, his opponent was a conservative...
romney never ‘counterpunched’. He suckerpunched. And our annie helped him do it.
Please, please Ann...eat a sandwich and have some fries.
I’ve never understood why some have thought her a good champion of Conservatism. She’s erratic and often without substance. Not the crusader we need.
Book sales must be cratering.
Ann’s bizarre obsession with Chris Krispy Kreme Christie was it for me.......it was disgusting
He is not going to take a fall.
Ann Coulter on ABC Sunday said the Republican base does not need firing up, they are already fired up...speaking on VP etc
So she says Romney does not need to go bold with his VP pick because the base is already fired up, not like 2008 she said
How could he possibly fire her now? He’d have to explain why he fired someone for speaking the truth.
