Skip to comments.FReepers Support Ann Coulter in Hollywood @ Dr. Phil Taping
Posted on 01/21/2009 2:27:55 PM PST by DoughtyOne
Ann Coulter was in Hollywood, California this morning at Paramount Studios to appear on the Dr. Phil show. Southern California's RonDog coordinated a group effort to support Ann. About thirty members of Free Republic showed up at the studios around 7:30 am.
Jim Robinson, his wife Sheila, and thier son Chris came down from Fresno to join in. Also attending were a number of the Youngs Republicans from UCLA. Ann didn't have to want for more support. Thanks to RonDog, we had her back.
I would say we made up between 25 and 33% of the audience. Ann's contributions to the show were supported vigorously. Also appearing the same program were Alan Colms, Scott McLellan, and another gentleman whose forte was economics. Sadly, I am drawing a blank on his name and organization right now. Other contributors to this thread will let you know.
The topic of the program was what do Americans need to know to do well under this administration. Dr. Phil asked some pretty good questions, and moderated in a manner that allowed Ann to make a good presentation, even when other guests were appearing with her.
Deborah Norville made a video appearance on the program, that lauded Obama's speach considerably more than was deserved.
Dr. Phil wasn't a pushover for Ann, but he wasn't what I would call antagonistic by any means. He asked some pointed questions related to her style of writng, her opinons of Obama, and her overall outlook. All in all, I thought he did a very nice job. As for Ann, she hit the ball out of the park a few times. I thought she represented herself and our views quite well.
It was interesting for me to take note of the people who clapped in support of Obama. At times some of these same people were clapping at comments Ann had made. That was nice to see.
This program will air tomorrow, January 22nd, 2009. I would urge folks to take the time to watch the show. I think you'll find the presentation to be a nice one.
Ann touched on the topic of people who like to play the victim these days. The subject of the impact of single mothers was mentioned at one point, and Dr. Phil asked Ann to come back in the middle of February to participate in a pannel discussing that issue.
After the program, Ann joined us for an early lunch at a local restaurant. We packed the place to overflowing. Ann mingles with the attendees. She posed for lots of pictures and talked to most of the people who attended.
Much thanks to RonDog for coordiantion our support for Ann. Thanks to Jim, Shiela, and Chris for coming down.
A good time was had by all.
I bet they were :-D! I wish I could have been there with you guys, I tried desperately to clear my schedule but was unable. I would have also liked to have met Jim and family in addition to fellow FReepers and of course the young Repubs from UCLA. Thanks all for letting us know of this event. Making it easy for us to attend if we could and for the updates. You make us fellow FREEPERS proud :-).
Dr. Phil gives money to Republicans. Might be why he could challenge Ann, but not freak out.
Syncro has another thread up. Here’s the link to his post.
Good on ya, RD.
Facts, observations, ideas and discussion. Ann knocks 'em dead. Thumbs up for Dr Phil for discussion over emotion, not always easy on the air.
Participant pics of Ann and friends???? Please!
I wonder if she has a handle here on FR? Would be nice if she became a known contributor, though I doubt the wolves could restrain themselves from pinging her to every thread posted...
Beautiful report, thanks.. will watch Thur....
DougFromUpland has another thread up, that makes three now.
After you’re done here, check out his thread.
Tell him D1 sent you. ;-)
Photos will follow here folks. My site decided to change my password on me while I was at the Dr. Phil show today, and I’m having a hard time signing in.
I have three shots that came out nice.
This program will air tomorrow, January 22nd, 2009.Thank you for this EXCELLENT "after action" thread, D1!
I would urge folks to take the time to watch the show.
I think you'll find the presentation to be a nice one.
You are missing ONE thing, though...
This **is** an Ann Coulter thread. :o)
Thursday - January 22, 2009That would be us. :o)
President Obama: Hope vs. Reality
The inauguration party is over. Whats next for this country?
Dr. Phil and his esteemed guests discuss their thoughts about the new presidency and what to expect in the next four years. How will the Obama presidency change our lives? Can he save this country from financial ruin? What does his economic stimulus plan mean to you at home? Can Obama live up to the hype -- or will our hopes be dashed?
Inside Editions Deborah Norville recaps the highlights from the inauguration, and Ann Coulter, controversial author and conservative commentator, gives her opinions on President Barack Obama.
Plus, a personal finance expert tells you what you need to know to get through these tough economic times, and more!
I was wondering if there was any discussion about what country we could move to during the next 4 years......
She doesn’t look guilty to me.
The thread I posted is Ann’s weekly column, although I did mention the taping.
I’ll be posting some pictures here shortly
channel 2 at 4:00pm for SOCAL folks
