Coulter at CPAC: If we donít run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee ó and heíll lose
Hot Air ^ | February 12, 2011 | Allahpundit

Posted on 02/12/2011 3:19:30 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

An amazing clip considering Romney finished second, way ahead of the rest of the major GOP candidates (but behind predictable winner Ron Paul), in the CPAC straw poll. Plenty of grassroots righties would agree with the second part of Coulter’s statement (and some with the first part too), but for someone of her “true conservative” stature to drop it on a frontrunner at CPAC is shocking. And Mitt gets off relatively easy here, I think: Remember who it was who wrote the piece at Human Events in 2008 crowning Palin “conservative of the year”? Sarahcuda’s an afterthought in her formulation. Wow.

Around the same time that this was breaking on Twitter, Melissa Clouthier of Red State (who’s at the conference) claimed that Allen West answered a blogger’s question about GOProud by saying he’s for liberty for all Americans. We’ll have to wait for a direct quote to parse that further, but between him and Coulter, let me just say on behalf of myself and other RINOs everywhere: RINO-tastic! Click the image to watch.

Sorry, Ann. YOu lost cred with me when you welcomed the GOProud homos with open arms. If you fail to see the evil in the gay agenda & the subsequent detriment to our nation, then you ain’t too swift, IMHO.

I’d vote for Christie before voting for Romney but Christie isn’t running.

I like what Christie’s doing in New Jersey. However, he is not conservative presidential material.

If New Jersey is happy with him, I’m fine with that. I’ve never lived there, so I don’t know what the realities are regarding the political climate. I have driven through there and think it has gotten too much bad press, because there are some lovely areas. We agree about Christie’s potential as a presidential candidate, though.

Christie is the biggest of the biggest RINO's. He has accomplished nothing in NJ except an extensive collection of You Tube speeches. He is open boarders, pro-islam sharia, anti-gun, pro Mike Castle, pro 911 mosque. This guy is a hack. He might be good by NJ standards, but that isn't saying much.

Don’t drive through the People’s Republic of New Jersey with a firearm in your vehicle ( EVEN LEGALLY) because you might end up in prison.

Ann is an anti-birther and her old boy friend was a Saudi prince and latest boyfriend was an old lib NYC developer or something. After she made fun of borthers - I dropped her.

Christie is not a bad guy but he is probably not conservative enough.

Ann was invited (and paid) to give a speach. That’s kinda what she does for a living.

Not all fat people are bad. I’m slightly heavier than Governor Christie, though I do have the excuse of being two and a half years older than he is. LOL

Excuse me? Stupid?

Sir, I am well aware of making one’s living by being paid to give a speech. My issue is that Ann is a fake. She passes herself off as a “conservative” & a Catholic, but neither would endorse gays if they were true to their stated principles. I hardly think that be being true to my beliefs, I am the stoopid one.

At the risk of being redundant, I have to say: I will not vote for either the gun-banning Chris “Aitken can be a felon for all I care” Christie or the stealth statist Myth Romney.

New Jersey needs Christie. America does not. He’d assure that many conservatives would again stay home and the party would likely lose Virgina and NC again, and possibly other normally red states.

Coulter is beginning to discredit herself with many conservatives. Hate to see it.

Bob Dole was actually pretty witty, down to earth guy. I’m kind of appalled you would compare Dole to Romney. Like him or not, Dole knew politics. Romney is clueless politically and otherwise, and couldn’t buy a vote if he tried, which he has.

Plus Senator Dole was severley wounded in the service of his country. As I understand it, no member of Governor Romney’s family has ever worn the uniform of the United States. Please correct me if I’m wrong.

The fact that Ron Paul won the straw poll should tell you all you need to know about this inside the beltway group.

I like Ann. However, I think she did not like the fact that the left and the media had branded her an extremist. So she is trying too hard to remove that label.

For at least a year, Coulter has had this same anti-Palin, pro-RINO perspective whether she’s being paid or just giving a radio interview.

Not only does she not speak for conservatism. When she pushes a pro islamic guy like Christie, she’s speaking against conservatism and against this country, whether she knows it or not.

Oh I don’t think Ann minded being branded an extremist as long as she was the center of attention.

She no longer is the “go to” girl of conservative commentary at the heart of why I think she isn’t fond of Palin. She’s been displaced.

Ann has been off of my list since her attack on then nominee for the Supreme Court John Roberts. Her critisis was gibberish, misplaced and she has never had the humility to apologize.

Not sure what they are smoking... but they are sounding awfully out of touch and senile. if I were Palin, I might as well got after CPAC a bit at the Tea Party Conference, but that is just me.

That is sad, as she (Coulter) had a unique way of talking about liberals and liberalism. There was room in the conservative movement for her. She did not have to move left.

From what I have seen so far about Justice Roberts, he was one of the better decisions of President Bush.

I agree, but probably not in the way you expect.

A Romney nomination will undoubtedly draw a Tea Party candidate into the race.

This divides the anti-Obama vote allowing Baraq to win with a Clintonian plurality.

Running on a platform of 4 more years of 10% unemployment and $4 gasoline, there's no way Baraq wins a 2 way race against anybody. But like many other FReepers, I'm not voting for Romney if there's a conservative on the ballot.
