Posted on 12/13/2011 6:47:22 PM PST by Notwithstanding
2/12/11 - Here is video of Ann Coulter at CPAC today, where she was asked what she thought about the "2012 GOP playing field." She hesitated, and then said she would just come out with what she thinks - If Chris Christie does not run, then she believes Mitt Romney will win the GOP Nomination, but lose to Obama.

She has since flip-flopped, much like her crush, Mitt Romney.
Give it up, Ann!
So, anorexia makes you stupid? Who knew?
This just means no one has a clue what is going to happen...as usual.
Christie wouldn’t be an ideal candidate at this point in time, if ever.
He’s doing a good job in New Jersey, leave him there.
WTF is up with Republicans wanting some powerful He-man sending lightning bolts and raising the dead?
It’s pissing me off.
I never pictured Ann as a chubby chaser.
Give it up Ann!! Whats the phrase? He's Not Running GET OVER IT!!!
Ann has shown some prescience over the years, but not in this case.
She’s too looped in to the Ivy League-Beltway dynamic.
Middle Earth rejects both of those foci.
Well, she was half right.
Her love for Mitt Romney makes her lie.
Why are you posting something that happened 10 months ago?
Has she seen Chris Christie lately? He’s put on weight.
Oh yeah. Ann just loves her some RINO booty.
Didn’t Chris Christie endorse Romney? If so, I’ll be happy when Christie is no longer involved with politics.
She also just said on Seans TV show that Bachmann and Mitt are by far the most Conservative candidates. She must be seeing the same doctor a Chris Mathews. They have both lost it.
I won’t vote for Christie or Romney.
Well, gee, I wonder.
Perhaps to underscore that Coulter is all wet regarding Romney - she knows Romney is a weak candidate.
I am greatly concerned that neither Romney or Mitt can beat Obama. The big guns have still not spoken and the Rats have lots of ammo on both. Suddenly Mitt’s Mormon faith will become subject number one on every new cast every day. They will invent conservative opposition and reinforce every bad stereotype of a Mormon. With Newt..they will come up with more women..more money and who knows what else.
We need a better candidate..I don’t know who, but only a miracle is going to save this election. We might even win the Senate and the House and loose the WH.
When it comes to judging politicians it is important to put more weight in their actions over their rhetoric. As Governor of Massachusetts, Romney governed pretty far to the left. Mitt Romney’s record makes John McCain look like Jesse Helms.
Of course Mitt will lose to Obama. Democrats (and Rinos) are counting on it. It'll be McCain redux. The larger concern is a split vote between Gingrich and Paul, which also paves the way for a potential 2nd term (God help us please).
I don’t get it. What’s the purpose of posting a ten-month old article where so many things have changed since then? We only see Freepers ranting on and on, lamenting how bad Ann is for cheering on Christie since she should have known that he’s nor running...
Coulter is a moron. She supports establishment republicans....her loyalty to the conservative cause is in serious question.
Ann wants to sell books to unsuspecting republican dolts.
FWIW, Ann was much prettier before I got HD
I’m sticking with my original first choice. Screw the party.
Absolutely, do that.
OMG: can’t you read. This is from many months ago.
So, you are fully prepared to live through another four years of corruption, ineptitude, and scandal in both domestic and foreign policies and will live with the consequences and the irreparable damage being done to our great nation?
I agree - I went through like 20 posts and no one bothered to notice it was a damned ten month old story.
No reason to re post this except to make Freepers look dumb.
So what if I reacted only to the headline (which did not say FEB '11 at the time) and will instead look like a Joe Biden to all the future posters here on this thread!
I say too you, BEGONE! and leave us Dumb asses in peace!
Re your saying they will come up with more women who’ve been with newt:
As odious as picturing Callista and others cheating with him in the Speaker’s office is, he has neutralized this line of attack by his religious conversion and his apologies.
Many Joe Bidens on this thread!!!!! :)
I agree, and still hold out a thin hope that Sarah Palin will change her mind and step into the race before it's too late.
I can't think of another political figure who's got as much on the ball, in as many different categories, as she does. She's still my first choice, and I just may write her in, whether she runs or not.
I'm sick of compromising my integrity.
If the damned GOP slides any further to the left it may as well just merge with the demorats!
There are plenty of good conservatives who could run and win but they won't, they know the damned Rockefeller republicans won't stand behind them and are likely to attack them.
I suspect this is why Marco Rubio and Allen West aren't acting eager to run, y'all won't support them 100%.
1. The first line of the “article” text (which is the youtube text) does note the date.
2. Hannity used this clip tonight to embarrass Coulter. She was not pleased and she was a bit taken aback. She was dancing. So it is actually very much a newsy clip tonight.
It is actually a very newsy clip.
Sean Hannity used it tonight to trip Coulter up, which is why the thread was started (there was no story to link to at the time).
Here is a new thread on the same clip:
Swamp, with all due respect I am hardly a moderate. If I had my druthers I’d be all in in supporting Ryan, Rubio, West, and their ilk. I believe they get it. Romney is an empty suit IMO, Gingrich is cannon fodder for the media (brilliant and flawed though he is), and no one else has stepped forth. We lack a strong charismatic leader who can mobilize the average American (center right)who will suffer the consequences of the current admin’s incompetence here and abroad.
If Obama is reelected the US will get hurt, and hurt bad. He and his people either have no idea what they are doing, or are purposefully trying to destroy this country. I’d like to think its incompetence, because the other alternative is so incomprehensible.
Where is Ronald Reagan when we really need him?
Do you think things will ever get better if we keep playing the game by establishment rules? I sure don't!
2012 is that time. This newly elected Republican will not be the one to lead us out of the morass we've been put in, but he will pave the way for he who will. Its a start, and start we must.
Of course that was when Mitt Romney was the clear front runner.
I think they're not running because they're not establishment Republican material and won't get the full 100% support of the GOP and the RNC.
Until voters snap out of this left vs. right paradigm, we're just gonna end up with the same crop of worthless choices.
We got Charlie Crist that way.
