Coulter: Perry won’t live up to expectations, Romney can beat Obama
Daily Caller ^ | 08/12/11

Posted on 08/12/2011 9:27:21 PM PDT by freespirited

On the eve of Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s announcement that he will be a candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, Ann Coulter continues to push for New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie to enter the competition.

On Sean Hannity’s Friday radio show, Coulter, author of “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America,” made a prediction on how she thought things would shake out. But, she remains optimistic on former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s chances against President Barack Obama should Romney be the Republican nominee.

“This is a prediction for the future — that Republican primary voters are desperate, as they should be to have a decent Republican candidate,” Coulter said. “No more John McCains because we have to take out this guy Obama.”

Coulter continued, “Right now by far and away, no matter what the media tells you listeners — Romney is the odds on favorite and he’s a pretty good candidate. I did not think he could win a year ago. But now, I think Obama has such a glass jaw and Romney has done very well. I think Romney could actually beat Obama.”

Coulter, however, warned that RomneyCare and Mormonism would haunt the former Massachusetts governor in his campaign.

“But still we’re uncomfortable because of RomneyCare, we’re worried he’s going to lose votes because he’s a Mormon and oh boy, you notice the media has said nothing about Mormonism now,” Coulter said. “As soon as he’s the nominee, we’re going to have one exposé after another. They’re going to be portrayed as crazier than the Scientologists.”

But, Hannity added that by injecting Mormonism into a general election against Obama, it would make Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s indiscretions fair game once again — something that would seem to work in favor of a Romney Republican presidential candidacy.

As for Perry, Coulter later said she anticipates a disappointment that will lead a push for Christie to join the race.

“You’ll see Rick Perry,” Coulter said. “He won’t live up to expectations and the American people will throw themselves into the arms of Chris Christie. That’s my scenario.”

Right now by far and away, no matter what the media tells you listeners — Romney is the odds on favorite and he’s a pretty good candidate.

Compared to what--John Kerry?

WTH Ann?!?!?

Has she been watching too much Big Love? Has he promised her a chance to be his celestial wife or something? Get over Romney, we are not going to pick this bozo.

Christie is a dead horse in this race. His stance on gun control won’t let him out of the gate.

Ann: we're just not that into you anymore. By-the-way, good luck with the book sales, I'm sure you'll sell lots and lots to your new homosexual friends, and establishment types.

Good Riddance!

Yes Ann, we’re all aware you have been pimping Romney for several years now and I’m calling you out on the idea you didn’t believe he could win a year ago because you thought we could win in 2008 in a Democrat wave! I have no interest in following this woman’s lead on anything.

The GOP has always nominated the front-runner. It has a history of doing that. Romney isn’t liked on here and its understandable but I’ll be surprised if the party breaks with past precedent.

His position on guns, is that he opposes any new gun control laws, and (claims) to be a supporter of the 2nd amendment, but (always that damn "but") he supports strong and aggressive enforcement of current and existing gun control laws......

Or in other words, he quotes the N.R.A.s official stance.

That said, she needs to get over her Chris Christie infatuation, the man isn't running, and its become overwhelming clear, he does not want to run, he has no desire to run, and doesn't want to get in the race, he does not want to commit. He has used every single excuse possible to say it. He does want to be a kingmaker (ala Sen. DeMint), but he does not want to be a candidate.

She needs to get over it.

At this point in 2007, Rudy Giuliani was the front-runner.

Mitt Romney is just as bad a candidate as John McCain, and he would lose the election. A lot of conservatives would rather stay home than vote for such an unapologetic liberal republican. If he won, what would we really gain? No, thanks.

Compared to Obama, Romney might be “pretty good” but anyone on the debate stage was better than Obama.

I listed out of curiosity to hear what she thought of the debate. She went on and on and on about Christie and had to turn her off. How can anybody take her seriosly anymore?

Personally I fear Romeny more than Obama. If we have the House and probably the Senate Obama’s liberal ideas would be DOA. Romney’s liberal ideas would slip through, just like Bush’s prescription drug plan, campaign finance, and No Child Left Behind did, and amnesty for illegals almost did.

Has she been watching too much Big Love?

I'm afraid Ann has become afflicted with what's known as "Potomac Fever"

It's a condition that slowly erodes conservatives' principles and are replaced by the desire to "fit in" with the Washington's power elite. i.e, Big Government Liberalism. The longer they stay in Washington, the less likely they maintain the principles that carried them there in the first place.

Or more simply put, Ann have gone native.

And, unfortunately, Sarah Palin defended the participation of GOProud at CPAC, last year
http://hotair.com/archives/2011/02/07/palin-defends-goproud-participation-at-cpac/

GOProud will not be allowed full participation this year, and Rick Perry and the Response are blamed for backing the right wing “insanity.”
http://www.truthwinsout.org/blog/2011/08/17897/

“Unfortunately, the increasing insanity of the modern GOP gives one little hope. Anti-gay zealots continue to use the party as a platform. This weekend, for instance, Texas Gov. Rick Perry will hold a stadium prayer rally in Houston that can only be described as “Loonypalooza.” Virtually all of the GOP presidential candidates are kissing up to the extreme right and seem terrified by intransigent, tantrum-throwing Teabaggers that came within in a hair of crashing the world economy this week.”

Coulter, Romney and Kerry all are members of the Ivy League club. In other words, they all consider themselves to be properly credentialled to be our “leaders” in the political arena.

People who aren’t from the Ivy League club are seen as “outsiders” and gap-toothed hicks who might mess up their gravy train.

Laura sure exposed herself as a RINO with her unwavering support of Boehner's debt reduction package. This, coupled with her daily ridiculing of the Tea Party, revealed her to be nothing more than an unprincipled RINO.

Another touch of reality of what we face in regaining control of the Republic as we recognize these false purveyors of the dichotomy that there are actually 2 choices of rulers from the big Demo+Publican Party. Coulter, Ingraham, GOP, DNC, Fox and many others ‘conservative’ or ‘progressive’ frauds may just all be part of the Big Ponzi.
The Political Whore list would fill a book.
