Ann Coulter bushwacked on radio by conservative Christian abortion foes
By WENDY NORRIS 3/30/09 9:08 AM
Ultra-conservative Christian talk-radio hosts are taking a new approach to get their message out ambushing right-wing pundit Ann Coulter for supporting 2008 GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Absolutist anti-abortion activists accuse Romney of being willing to sacrifice children for your vote.
The Denver-based American Right to Life Action (RTL) leads the charge against Coulter with a YouTube video that shows excerpts of Coulters on-air radio freak-outs and calls on the acid-tongued author to apologize and retract her support for Romney.

McCain was a prolife candidate, but many conservatives couldn't get past his RINO ways. So we all have to suffer through a Marxist. Many of us do not want the lesser of two evils, but I hope those people are happy sitting on their high horse with the destruction of our country that is going on now.
If Romney was the nominee he would of stood a far greater chance of beating Obama than McLame did. And right now we wouldn’t have a marxist leader trying to take over our lives.
These people need to shut their pieholes.
Is saying that newswriters shouldn’t be murdered in their homes unltra-conservative too?
yeah. Coulter supporting Romney. THAT’S the cause of the mess we are in.....FOCUS people!!!!
We need to break out of the circular firing squad.
After bashing GWB for not being conservative enough, I wonder how she feels now that the shoe is on the other foot.
There was a d*mn good reason for Reagans 11th commandment.
Why does anyone care what this leftist nut thinks?!
Wendy Norris lives in Fort Collins. After contributing at DailyKos.com for three years, she launched Unbossed, a successful national group blog to help bridge the ever-widening gap between the media and the progressive blogosphere.
The one issue people will see their causes wither and die if they are successful in fragmenting the Republican party. They are defeating themselves.
Here we go again with the Romney haters. Stand by for the crap again. I picked Romney over McNut any day. Sure he was not perfect, so what the hell have we got in Washington now. All stone crazy childlike nitwits.
Ann Coulter sells books, she also stays in the limelight so she can sell books. She is doing a good job on both counts. All and all she is a plus for our side!
I don't think we'll have a problem with that the next time around.
This presidency is similar to the 1-month bread-and-water diet - once it's over you have a very clear and exact definition of what you don't like. Unfortunately, some people needed to learn the hard way.
Yep. Wendy Norris is a hack liberal. Coulter was supporting the best she thought of the cast of losers the media picked for the Republicans—after they had totally and purposely ignored Hunter.
More divide and conquer from another liberal posing as a conservative. I’ll be she’ll say she voted for Bush twice too!
God help anyone here with a functioning brain!
As I listened to her on Larry Cadaver King, I kept thinking about something about which Boortz frequently reminds his male audience: At some point, youll have to try to have a conversation with her. I also kept thinking that she HAS to be from California until I remembered that Arizona also has valleys.
Give her a break. At least she started out backing the best conservative in the field. He was my first choice also, followed by Thompson. I quickly got progressively less enthusiastiac as we went down the list from there. For what it's worth, Rudy was at the bottom of my list with McCain only one layer up.
Every nut job or fruitcake organization that attacks Ann , right or left, is a million dollars in her pocket. Giv’em hell, Crazy Momma!!
My preferences were Hunter, followed by Thompson, followed by Romney.
I could never choke down having to vote for McCain, and I still can’t. But I voted for Palin.
This is clearly an “anti-Coulter” organization and not an “anti-abortion” organization.
DAMN!!!! That is a good one. As a Californian I applaud while being chagrined.
Well, IMHO, Romney proved beyond dispute that he couldn’t win. He had every advantage, including a lot of attention from the press, that same press who swept Fred Thompson under the rug and constantly lied about how “lazy” he was.
He had National Review and Ann and several other conservative pundits supporting him because he was supposedly the most “electable.”
Yet he lost, and in doing so crowded out the only conservative candidates in the race, Thompson and Duncan.
I voted for McCain in the end, and urged everyone else to do so, because I said that Obama would irreparably destroy our country if he got in. But McCain was an obvious loser. And so was Romney. So IS Romney. God help us if they wheel him out a second time, the way they wheeled Loser mcCain out a second time.
Really, who cares what the daughter of a former candidate thinks? Do you know of a single person who will cast a vote based on the opinion of a former candidates child?
Most of us have been asked to ignore core principles since Reagan left office. It hasn't worked.
Why would you suggest we continue to do that which has not worked?
We will if the RNC tries to do an end around and gets another John McCain nominated, which I have every expectation they will try to do. Judging from what is being put forth by Michael Steel.
LOL. Thank you (I think!).
Only if you believe we will not be hit by terrorists within the next four years. IMO, A terrorist attack here in the US will end the Democrat reign for decades.
The lesser of 2 evils is still evil.
What else can you call a governor that put $50 co-pay
elective abortions into law?
Bull. Coulter was never a "Hunter supporter", she merely praised him as a great conservative Congressman but did not think he was a viable Presidential candidate (the position of most of us took on FR). She WAS a committed Romney supporter, and endorsed Romney over EVERYONE ELSE who was a "major contender" for the nomination at the time, including bashing Fred Thompson and calling him a RINO, and that was before his campaign tanked. (As opposed to the freepers claiming she only backed Romney at the end to "stop McLame") She also indicated her second choice was Giuliani, and wrote an op-ed claiming Romney and Giuliani were better because they were "more conservative" than the region that elected them or something, whereas the other candidates were "less conservative" than the region that elected them.
The jury was out during the 2008 primaries of whether Romney had truly had a change of heart over abortion or whether he was just pandering to get votes, but now we have an answer. Romney is actively working to get the ultra pro-abortion Meg Whitman elected Governor of California. So much for his "pro-life conversion".
Coulter also laughably claimed both Hilderbeast and Hussein Obama would be "better" than a McCain presidency and argued that Hilderbeast (ACU rating 8%) was "more conservative" than McCain (ACU rating 82%) (I think she might be one of those conservatives who argued that abortion policy "wouldn't change" regardless of who is President, another claim that's been proven indisputably wrong as Obama has been working round the clock to overturn Bush era executive orders, issue his own executive orders promoting abortion on demand, and mandating federal funding for all kinds of abortion)
>> The one issue people will see their causes wither and die if they are successful in fragmenting the Republican party. They are defeating themselves. <<
Coulter's been wrong on far more than one issue (Remember saying Jews "need to be perfected" and made to convert to Christianity, and her claims that John Roberts would be "another Souter?), and it's about time she gets called out for it. She has no problem relentlessly smearing and crucifying other conservatives for allegedly supporting liberals, now the shoe is on the other foot.
Bottom line is that Coulter backed a RINO in the primary, and said if she didn't get her way in the primary she'd campaign for the socialist Democrat over the Republican ticket (but didn't have the guts to follow through with that).
I can't think of a single thing Coulter has done during her career that's directly advanced conservatism in America, but I can think of several times that she opened her mouth and it helped liberals get ahead. In other words, she damaging the very 'causes' she claims to be promoting. She's simply the Republican version of Michael Moore, and needs to be called out as such.
I really don’t want us to be attacked but if it happens it would be at his feet. If some of the attackers were recent Gitmo detainees it would really sink him.
Republicans should stop attacking Republicans, and I don’t mean obvious RINOs. Conservative ministers should be educating their congregations on the virtues of following Christ. They should also educate their congregations about the evils of this world, like liberalism. The term ultra-conservative is idiotic babbling that should be left to the liberal mush-heads.
COULTER: "Actually, my favorite candidate is [Rep.] Duncan Hunter [R-CA], and he is magnificent. The problem is most people say, "Who's Duncan Hunter?" He's a genuine war hero. He has one son, I think, in Iraq, one in Afghanistan. He is good on every single issue. He has been out front on building a wall. He did build a wall at San Diego. He's very good on -- on the life issue. He's good on everything."
“The lesser of 2 evils is still evil.”
True, but there are different degrees of what we call evil. Obama is the devil’s puppet.
I guess “who cares” are the 11,000 idiots who follow her on the equally idiotic Twitter thingy and the others who haven’t the critical thinking skills to understand that she’s a total airhead.
Think about it: Who would have thought a few years ago that a flaming Marxistm with NO administrative experience would be sitting in the Oval Office?
Looks as though the 100+ year process of the government school dumbing down of the American population has paid off for the One World utopians — BIG TIME!
If/when it happens he will take the Democrat party down with him.
Whose puppet is a man who promoted killing pre-born babies
for a $50 co-pay (Romney Care) and implemented gay marriage in Massachusetts?
I don’t know why we are getting so worked up with Romney, I really don’t see him as viable. I’m more worried about Huckabee. I don’t think any higher of him but he is getting a lot of play with his TV show and all.
I concur, it's called liberalism.
Hey, at least we're not hearing about Britney Spears anymore.
Obama is an abortionist pig. I will not cut him any slack, no matter what you toss out there.
Obama: Usurping the office of POTUS.
Romney: Willing to sacrifice children for your vote.
“Obama: Usurping the office of POTUS.”
Obama has long been an advocate of abortion on demand, and has touted his 100% approval rating from Planned Parenthood, the largest provider of abortion in the United States;
— Obama opposed every limitation on abortion, including laws requiring parental notification and consent before minors could obtain abortions;
— Shockingly, as a state senator, Obama actively opposed any protections for infants born alive after failed abortion procedures and misrepresented his record on this issue during the 2008 campaign;
— Finally, during the campaign, Obama proudly proclaimed his support for the Freedom of Choice Act (FOCA) — the most radical expansion of abortion license in the world — and promised to sign the law as President.
In addition to his unqualified support for abortion, Obama has promised to provide federal funding for stem-cell research that destroys human life at the embryonic stage.
Since taking office, President Obama has engaged in a series of actions that indicate that he is prepared to implement his prior support for abortion.
— Within the first few days of taking office, Obama overturned the Mexico City Policy, a U.S. government policy that denies federal funding to international agencies that promote or perform abortion as a means of birth control;
— More ominously, when overturning this policy, President Obama indicated his willingness to provide financial support to the United Nations Population Fund, an organization that lost U.S. government funding after it collaborated with the Chinese governments coercive one child population policy.
Like I said, Obama is an abortionist pig.
The last election, as you will recall, was one of Obama (who wants to kill babies even after they are born) against McCain (who is prolife). Many Conservatives did not vote for McCain because he is a RINO. Fine - I am glad they stood by their "principles" at the expense of our country. That was my point. The time for a vote on principles is at the primary level. At the national level, you have GOT to vote party. Period.
If you support "calling her out", I couldn't care less. It's childish, non-productive and thrills the Left, but have a great time.
Kudos to the Left. Once again you have succeeded in gettting the Right to eat its own. Circular firing squad - Ready - Aim - Fire
“And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Now, it unlikely most of us on this board will see it in our lifetimes. I am sick of the moronic nature of some pro-lifers.
The only true pro-choicer in that race, was Guiliani.
I hate to burst your bubble, but Romney has also supported and been supporting conservative, pro-life candidates like Michelle Bachman.
You’re kidding, right?
Someone who put $50 co-pay abortions into
Massachusetts law and implemented gay
marriage, would nominate pro-life supreme
No wonder America has sunk to such a level of depravity!
