American Right to Life: The Ann Coulter Hang Ups
Colorado Independent ^ | March 30, 02009 | Wendy Norris

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 Coulter’s on-air radio freak-outs and calls on the acid-tongued author to apologize and retract her support for Romney.

We simply cannot let a single issue - even one as important as abortion - divide us. We have got to unite and stay together. Heck, Dims can do that much - and they have competing special interest groups. We need to be a big tent or we don't have any chance at all.

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.

Anyone who thinks the Romneys are not truly pro-life has never gotten a Christmas card from them. If they add any more kids to the family — next year's card is going to have to be an aerial shot.

Coulter was a Duncan Hunter supporter, then supported people in descending order according to their ability to defeat Obama.

The one issue people will see their causes wither and die if they are successful in fragmenting the Republican party. They are defeating themselves.

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!

And now there's McLame's kid, whom the RINOs and the left are pumping up (a periodic requirement for all airheads) as the face of the NEW GOP (as in Giving Obama Props).

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, you’ll 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.

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.

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.

>> Coulter was a Duncan Hunter supporter, then supported people in descending order according to their ability to defeat Obama. <<

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.

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.

He's very good on -- on the life issue. He's good on everything."

We simply cannot let a single issue - even one as important as abortion - divide us.

So you're fine with winning elections at the expense of the very LIVES of millions of innocents?

The support of murder tells me more about the true nature of an individual than anything else. Why should I care that "Bob" supports smaller gov't if "Bob" is okay with the most innocent and vulnerable amongst us suffering horrific, gruesome deaths?

I will NEVER knowingly support murder. The Right to Life is the most fundamental of all rights. Without it we have nothing else.

We need to be a big tent or we don't have any chance at all.

The "Big Tent" concept has gotten us exactly where we are today. The Big Tent is the problem, not the solution. That concept has allowed anyone, regardless of voting record, who felt it more politically expedient to attach an R rather than a D to his or her name, into this party. They have destroyed it from within. Letting more of them in won't fix it!

“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 government’s coercive “one child” population policy.

Like I said, Obama is an abortionist pig.

Right on, Zach.

Some "conservatives" will sacrifice anything to elect someone with an "R" after their name.

I swear they'd support Obama if he switched parties. Throw away the big tent, starve the RNC, and start nominating and $upporting conservatives.

No, I do not support murder. I am a member of the National Right to Life.

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.

What a steaming pile of crap. There were no other "major contenders" besides Romney, Guiliani and McCain. The press chose McCain and Coulter was just making a point in her "support" for Hillary. No two conservatives agree on everything. Get over it.

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.

Idiots to the Max. Romney would have nominated pro-life supreme court justices, and enacted pro-life legislation. Roe vs. Wade might have been overturned.

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.
