Skip to comments.Ann Coulter thinks Mitt Romney was superior to Ronald Reagan, and she is embarrassing herself

Really Ann? You mean Romney's one debate bests Reagan's decades of advocacy for conservatism, his battles with the Republican establishment, and his building a conservative movement? Fact is Romney has done nothing for conservatism. I repeat, nothing. No leadership. No grassroots efforts. No major policy initiatives. Nothing. Reagan won two landslides. Romney won nothing. Cherry-picking facts Ann, in some strange cult-like obsession, fools no one. Same with your cheerleading for Chris Christie.
Coulter really had me fooled. I had never considered her a Mitch McConnell republican.
Aside from the fact that Reagan actually won twice.
And Nancy Reagan thinks Ronald Reagan was superior to Mother Theresa. And I think Mrs. Vigilanteman is superior to Racquel Welch. So what?
So glad I have never bought one of her books. She has gone over to the loony bin side. I use to half way like her just because she caused the libs to get so upset . . . but now I can’t stand the sight of her on any of the Fox shows she appears on.
She’s obviously getting ready to release her new book...”How Romney Blew It And As A Result We All Suffer”.
Talked to a rep from a major publisher of books, conservative websites last week - said they get tons of complaints and negative feedback now about Coulter - and not from liberals, but from conservatives. She said that is totally different than it used to be.
We should all rhetorically go a burn her house down... just STFU Ann. I do not want to hear your BS anymore
Its all an act. She dates raging leftists but has made a career of pretending to be a conservative firebrand.
Her schtick is to be outrageous. So she needs to keep being outrageous but the line keeps moving. Now she’s floundering looking for something which will generate the attention she craves.
First supported Chris Christie and then Mitt Romney as the most conservative candidates that could beat Obama...in 2016 no more RINO’s and no more Coulter.
Just shut up and smoke.
I had you pegged years ago as just another media whore. Now that you’ve exhausted your support from true conservatives, you’re jumping from the conservative cab and in with the limousine liberals/RINOs/Country Club Republicans.
Other than the fact it shows the rogue idiocy of Ann? In this day and age, rinos are losers, but idiots seems to ignore this fact!
In a sense Coulter is right. Romney was not the problem.
Indeed he was a weaker candidate than we would have liked but overall it was the campaign “managers” who we’re the problem.
They never went after Obunghole the way that they needed to. He lost because he tried to be nice and play nice according to the media template. They feared being Painted as “mean” rather than attacking rightfully on the glaring failures of the administration.
Let’s not forget that it was RINOs like her and Drudge in the early part of the primaries that helped the left to push the true conservatives out of the way and to lift Romney up on their shoulders.
like her = like she
Yep, and here’s the problem: how are the GOP supposed to appeal to independents when they won’t support candidates beyond what the candidate does for his/her self?
Somebody she really tell her that ...
I never did like her, she always seemed quite faux...
Mitt governed to the left of Bill Clinton. Ann has joined the
leftist Rovian cult.
No one is 100% but poor Annie.She still won’t refer to the fat basturd of NJ as a fat basturd. She needs to get more of a life away from the NE.
Now we hear this terrible tyrant wants to confiscate pensions and I don't doubt it for one minute.
We have a very divided country. Almost have did not vote for the current president but will he respect and work with the millions that did not vote for him and will DC represent us. I think no.
I also think by any standard or your politics, Mitt Romney is a good decent man and half this country did not vote for the only good decent man running - that is more troubling.
We have a man living in the White House who posted forged birth documents, falis e-verify, and is using another man's social security number and she has the audacity to call those who are concerned about this CRANKS!
Ann you are done. You are a leftover ready to be taken out in the trash.
Romney actually did as good as he could with the big exception of saying dumb stuff that got spread all over the universe and then never countered.
The way to beat the left is to go after them 10X every time they come after us!! We don't do that. Until we do we will keep losing.
AFTER all, it was YOU, yes YOU that said over and over and over that: "Romney was the ONLY ONE that could beat BOZO".
Of course you did not sell me on that, but he was the last man standing and I had no choice. From now on, just shut up, maybe it was you who caused his defeat, reckon?
Ann Coulter used to date Bill Maher. What more is there to say?
I have tons more respect for Romney than McCain, but he started late and finished early. After the first debate it was his to lose. And he did.
Of course, even if he had won, no one really believes he would have been the kind of president to turn this all around. I fear, though, that this may have been our last chance.
I think Mitt had Reaganesque potential.
۞ "Since the bygone days of Ronald Reagan the present day Republican Party has taken on the appearance and all the demeanor of the corrupted liberal Democrat Party and has now become the party of appeasers, apologists, liberalism and an ever bigger government with all of the welfare largesse that emanates from it."
LOL, what a distinctive difference that description is coming to represent these days.
Its the GOPe that hasn't a clue.
Deep down, Ann may have in recent years been thinking that her “brand” may be threatened by her reputation as a
“bomb-thrower”, and might soon come to an end. It was always her “style” that turned off her adversaries, and not her message, which was muddled, and above all , highly polemical.
So I think she’s just figuring out how she can stay around for another decade or so, and go back on “The View”.
“Idiot of the Year” - 2012:
1). Dick Morris
2). Ann Coulter
I would guess the vote would be pretty close...
I think the worst punishment we can mete out for Coulter is to ignore her, as what she wants more than anything in the world is attention.
Hey Mark Levin - who was your 100% pure conservative candidate? Why didn’t you run, Mark?
Two words: Wife Goggles (from the Manosphere, I *think* Vox Day).
Wow, that is pretty pathetic
There were plenty of things that Reagan trimmed on. Had he not done so, he would have probably come closer to having a Goldwater result. As it was, he trailed Carter (!) in the polls until the last week of the campaign. Hard as it may be to believe, looking back on it, at the time I was sweating bullets that Reagan wasnt going to be able to pull it out.
There was no talk radio back then, Reagan had to help the Fairness Doctrine die first. And I think that we expect quite a lot more of our politicians now precisely because they do have talk radio behind them. But as we see from Benghazi - or rather, as we painfully realize that most of the country still does not see - it still isnt enough. And I should know how difficult it is to persuade people of the obvious truth - there are things that I see as plain as day, that I cant even get a consensus of FReepers to see.
No, she's a lawyer. She is trained to argue and advocate for the position that pays her bills.
We have no way of knowing whether she's really a conservative, or just found it financially profitable to argue the conservative position.
This article is an 18-wheeler load of red dog crap. Its author needs to put down her crack pipe. Romney presented no strong contrast to Obama- he couldn’t. He’d already governed in a way that Obama would have found acceptable. He couldn’t beat Obama over the head with Obamacare precisely because he had already launched Romneycare. He couldn’t beat Obama over the head with gay marriage because he already supported it himself. If the tent is so big it is full of Democrats/Progressives/Communists, then there is no point in having the tent at all- something faux-cons like Ann cannot or do not want to grasp.
Lets be honest though, she was the only one who was right about the traitor John Roberts.
“We have no way of knowing whether she’s really a conservative, or just found it financially profitable to argue the conservative position. “
Sure we do. Who does she choose to spend her personal time with, Bill Maher.
This election taught me that when you factor in those riding in the wagon and loving what they're seeing and those who committed fraud, and those who turn a blind eye to it and those who feel they are too virtuous to ever vote for someone they consider less than perfect, our side will never win another presidential election and I'm not kidding.
Waiting for Ann to go Huffington...
Conservatives's are finshed with her
And she already has the fag hag gay cult thingy...
Bhuh Bhuy, Ann!!!
Losing face everyday with her mouth getting ahead of reallity. She needs to go into hiding.
Did Mark Levin or anyone on this message thread read Coulter’s article? I thought she made some excellent points and yes, when Reagan was governor of CA, he was not some fire breathing conservative.
I personally thought Romney was a pretty good candidate and would’ve made a great president. But, we will never know.
