Skip to comments.Coulter: Obama’s silver spoon was ‘an affirmative action silver spoon’
Posted on 04/20/2012 7:26:30 AM PDT by Beave Meister
Conservative commentator Ann Coulter told radio host Hugh Hewitt on Thursday that Democratic attempts to highlight presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romneys wealth are not only unfair, but likely to backfire.
Earlier this week, President Barack Obama said that he and his wife Michelle were not born with a silver spoon in their mouths, a comment which was widely considered to be a jab at Romney, the son of a successful CEO.
Although Obamas spokesman Jay Carney denied that was the case, the Democratic Party has been attacking the former Massachusetts governor in an effort to paint him as out-of-touch with average Americans.
But on Hewitts radio show, Coulter, the author of Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America, argued that Obama was the one actually on the receiving end of a so-called silver spoon.

Sorry, Ann. Don’t read you anymore. Your love affair with the democrat Romney and the homosexuals has turned me off.
No more books, columns, or talking head shows. Allllll gone!
“Conservative commentator Ann Coulter”
What? She loves liberals now and homosexual activities. Conservative? Not hardly!
Get him to release his academic records and how he got the money for college, etc. and one will know exactly what “silver spoon” he falls under.... =.=
Obama said the other day that he wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He said that he and Michelle succeeded because someone gave them a chance, gave them an education, etc.
What he doesn’t mention is that he was from a solid upper middle class or upper class background himself!! He went to the most prestigious prep high school in the state of Hawaii!! His grandma paid for it. She was a bank vice president of a major bank in Hawaii. She made a good living. He was raised in an upper class home!!!
Then, he went on to attend Columbia and Harvard, two Ivy League universities. This guy is a member of the social/cultural elite. Yet he wants to make it sound as if he and Michelle struggled to rise up out of the ghetto.
I hope he gets called out on this horse blank.
He lived with his white Grandmother who was a bank president in Hawaii. Tough friggin’ life.
“an affirmative action silver spoon”...
That’s what they’ve been setting the table with in the White House since 2009.
I worked with a Japanese-American physicist who was born and raised in Hawaii. He admitted moving to Massachusetts was the worst mistake he ever made in his life. Climate was only part of the problem.
Following in the footsteps of Peggy Noonan.
And Coulter also said yesterday that both of the Obama daughters were born with silver spoons in their mouths. But here is a better point. Obama and his wife may have been given silver spoons thru affirmative action but they did something with it [even though we do not agree with what they are doing]. They are not sitting at home doing nothing and getting money for free. We need to stop the great giveaways.
Punahou School’s tuition for 2011-12 is $18,450-not including optional and mandatory fees.
But you know, back in the day, Barry’s grandmother - the bank vice-president - was so poor that in order to send him to school they were forced to eat dogs!
(a fun twist:)
Why would anyone still post Ann Coulter’s drivel on FR, is beyond comprehension. She burnt her last vessel at CPAC. She’s done.
“This parrot is no more! It has ceased to be! It’s expired and gone to meet its maker! This is a late parrot! It’s a stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! If you hadn’t nailed him to the perch he would be pushing up the daisies! Its metabolical processes are of interest only to historians! It’s hopped the twig! It’s shuffled off this mortal coil! It’s run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible! This.... is an EX-PARROT!”
Obama’s silver spoon was actually a cheese slicer.
Barack Hussein was born with a “silver spoon” up his nose and a “hammer and sickle” up his ass.
Silver spoons were meant to prevent bacterial infection. I guess Zero wants everyone dead. I do not read idiot Coulter either, because she is falling into his hate rhetoric.
Funny Tpartiers she trashed never had the silver spoon in their mouth, but that did not bother her at the time.
So, now, let us pop the pop corn and watch the “silver spoon” girl fight between liberals and GOP-E f@gs.
TOo bad Ann did not heed on the attacks by liberals on the Tparty and supported Romney and trashed us instead while they were throwing us the tomatoes. Have fun Ann with your circle of gay GOP friends and liberals... too bad so sad.
She obviously cannot take nor give a spanking in earnest.
the people who paid their Ivy League tuition at Princeton Columbia and Harvard Law have gotten ZILCH or worse in terms of a productive contribution to society. Both of them parked their Harvard law licenses in “voluntary surrender”
Now oBowma’s little princesses are being raised with PLASTINUM spoons in their mouths to grow up listening to the likes of Jeremiah Wright, Mom and Pop, Bill Ayers and all the freak radical hateful left wing associates who visit the WH, despising people by religion and skin color, and being groomed to organize communities to destroy the very values that fund affirmative action for the likes of the royal obama tribe
quite frankly, I am anxious to have a monied person in the White House, they know how to handle it. Clinton and Obama act (ed) like they won the lottery. Moving on up. at least the Jeffersons earned their own money
Now that's a great reply right there. Perfect.

By the way, what exactly have they done with what has been given them?
Everything they have touched has been destroyed. They are surrounded by the most corrupt, inept administration in the history of America.
Well, they had great vacations.
Mom was daughter of well off Hawaiian Bank exec. and richer husband. She was making over 80,000 a year doing “research” - this is the story to be told not affirmative action. Obambi keeps trying to talk about “single mom” when he had a well connected family who helped him live very well - he did not have to eat dog, but he did.
It appears that Bill Ayres paid for Obama’s college according to Bill’s postman and his sworn testimony. He don’t need no stinking silver spoon when you have terrorists to pay for stuff.
Coulter has evolved into a broken clock, still right twice a day.
Otherwise a golden shower for Ms. Coulter.
Coulter-Noonan-Dowd = Larry-Curly-Moe
Obama wasn’t born with a silver spoon in his mouth-—it was a blue heeler.
I’ve been saying over and over again that obammy is little more than a quota boy.
You can add it up...in 2010-dollars.
Occidental College, CA...two years of tuition, room, and board. $125k minimum.
Columbia College, NY....two years of tuition, room and board. $125k minimum.
Harvard Law School...two years of graduate school, room and board. $125k minimum.
All are private school (that is obvious, if you look at the big picture). So $375k spent in 2010-dollars. What kid in Boaz, Alabama could afford that? What kid in Ripley, Mississippi could afford that? There’s a silver spoon here, but it’s an unexplainable silver spoon.
I thought it was a golden retriever...
