Skip to comments.Coulter at CPAC: If we donít run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee ó and heíll lose

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 Coulters 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? Sarahcudas an afterthought in her formulation. Wow.
Around the same time that this was breaking on Twitter, Melissa Clouthier of Red State (whos at the conference) claimed that Allen West answered a bloggers question about GOProud by saying hes for liberty for all Americans. Well 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.

Hard drug use going on there.
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.
And if Ann trips and falls in the woods..no one will hear her.
Chris Christie? Oh, boy.
Big tent fag hag and muslim bodily fluids swapper has jumped the shark.
LOL HOMOCON 2011
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.
CPAC has gone nuts, Reagan wouldn’t go there now!
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.
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.
I AGREE. He must ‘suck” down a lot of calories also !
Thanks. I try to avoid prison as much as possible. :)
Don’t be stupid
Ann was invited (and paid) to give a speach. That’s kinda what she does for a living.
Christie is a RINO.
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.
Says the woman who trumpeted Mitt and his awesome hair just three short years ago.
Ann just misses the days when she was relevant.
Now you’re REALLY stupid
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.
And you’re really rude
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.
Don’t forget pro-WTC Mosque.
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.
“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 aint too swift, IM”
The fact that Ron Paul won the straw poll should tell you all you need to know about this inside the beltway group.
That would explain why he won.
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.
CPAC doesn’t yet realize they are irrelevant, the TEA Party folks aren’t listening to them anymore.
The good people of this country don't need to be told who to support by the chattering class
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.
Ann Coulter is getting too big for her skinny britches.
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.
From what I have seen so far about Justice Roberts, he was one of the better decisions of President Bush.
If Romney is the nominee Obama will get a second term.I know no one here in Ohio who will vote for him.
Elected 9( ? ) times, lost only the Presidential, vs Mitts what, once?.
I agree. Still he was a good( mechanically ) politician.
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.
