Oh, NOW Ann Coulter gets upset with Romney!!

Coulter: Romney should fire his spokesman for that RomneyCare response to the steelworker ad

Via Mediaite, inquiring conservatives on Twitter are asking: Er, isn’t Ann Coulter herself famously a big fan of RomneyCare?

Answer: Yeah, but I’m not sure it’s Andrea Saul’s mention of RomneyCare that’s really bugging her. Mediaite’s 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 didn’t even get her insurance from her husband, her response was, ‘Well, if she had lived in Massachusetts with Mitt Romney’s 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 isn’t 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… There’s no point in you doing your show, there’s no point in going to the convention and pushing for this man if he’s 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 she’s irritated mainly because Saul is playing Obama’s game by treating the steelworker ad as legitimate. You don’t respond to a smear like that by addressing it on the merits; you respond by explaining why it’s a smear and how it reveals just what a fraud the Hopenchange aura is. It’s 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, it’s not inconsistent for Coulter to worry that touting RomneyCare might alienate other conservatives even if it wouldn’t 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. She’s 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!]

It's been pretty obvious for a long time that Mitt is not well served by any of the crowd from Massachusetts.

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.

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...

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.

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

Crazy Ann

How could he possibly fire her now? He’d have to explain why he fired someone for speaking the truth.

Really wish he would pick Newt. Newt is tough, smart and not afraid of the dems, BO or the press. He has no more secrets in the closet and would be a great pick. I would love to see him at that visible level and especially in a debate with dumbass Joe. Please Mitt, pick Newt.

I think she's right. I certainly don't need firing up before the November election, and don't know anybody who does. We're ready to vote, and if necessary will crawl on broken glass to do so. That said, I want Romney to choose a solid Conservative running mate.

I saw this Andrea Saul person on Fox this morning and all I could think of was “this is bad, really, really bad....”

I didn’t hear about Ann Coulter’s comments today, but no matter what your opinion is of her (Coulter) she is RIGHT that this Saul person needs to go. She is WAY out of her league and could not think fast on her feet. Just stuttered and kept repeating lame comments....Bill Hemmer could not keep her focused on the questions. Not a person to have as the voice for the Romney campaign....Go back to your debate class honey and maybe by 2016 you will have some skills....

I am so disgusted with Romney’s reaction. For months now I’ve been saying to myself - he is a sissy man. I like a Man’s Man. aaaaaaaaaaaaaach.

How man people did you hear today that are totally fed up with Romney’s wishy washy non-reaction to ANY of this. Axelrod must be laughing his fanny off.

See my tag line.

That she was romantically involved with Bill Maher was enough to make me reject her as a RINO and a phony conservative.

Perhaps they were beards for each other?

But Coulter was dating a muslum for awhile, too. Insane considering at his core, he was required to kill her as an infidel.

We will have to agree to disagree as they say, especially as we are at FR one of the most Conservatives sites anywhere. Many here are NOT fired up at all.

I certainly am discouraged, I need firing up, even then it will not be much of a fire, but a Tea Party Social Conservative on the ticket will help a great deal.

Even more so for me would be if Romney reached out to Gov Palin for a key speaking roll at convention, if not THE KEY NOTE

If you are dependent upon ANYONE or ANYTHING to get you “fired up” about the upcoming election, then perhaps the biggest problem lies within. Mitt Romney is far from perfect, but the choice is between Romney and Obama. One of them will be President for the next four years, and nobody else. It is time to choose.
