Ann Coulter: IF NOT ROMNEY, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN? (No Ann NOT Rommey!)
AnnCoulter.Com ^ | November 16, 2011 | Ann Coulter

IF NOT ROMNEY, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?

November 16, 2011
So now, apparently, we have to go through the cycle of the media pushing Newt Gingrich. This is going to be fantastic.

In addition to having an affair in the middle of Clinton's impeachment; apologizing to Jesse Jackson on behalf of J.C. Watts -- one of two black Republicans then in Congress –- for having criticized "poverty pimps," and then inviting Jackson to a State of the Union address; cutting a global warming commercial with Nancy Pelosi; supporting George Soros' candidate Dede Scozzafava in a congressional special election; appearing in public with the Rev. Al Sharpton to promote nonspecific education reform; and calling Paul Ryan's plan to save Social Security "right-wing social engineering," we found out this week that Gingrich was a recipient of Freddie Mac political money.

(Even I will admit, however, that Newt was great when he was chairman of GOPAC back in the '90s with Gay Gaines at the helm.)

Although Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- the institutions most responsible for the nation's current financial crisis -- were almost entirely Democratic cash cows, they managed to dirty up enough Republicans to make it seem like bipartisan corruption.

Democrats sucked hundreds of millions of dollars out of these institutions: Franklin Raines, $90 million; Jamie Gorelick, $26.4 million; Jim Johnson, $20 million.

By contrast, Republicans came cheap. For the amazingly good price of only $300,000 apiece, Fannie and Freddie bought the good will of former Reps. Vin Weber, R-Minn., Susan Molinari, R-N.Y., and Newt Gingrich, R-Ga.* Former Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., was even cheaper at $240,000.

[*Correction: After Gingrich admitted last week to receiving $300,000 from Freddie, we found out this week that it was actually closer to $1.6 million.]

So now conservatives shy away from denouncing these crooked organizations for fear of running into Vin Weber at a cocktail party.

Sorry, guys -- on the plus side, you're millionaires, but on the downside, you've earned the contempt of your fellow man.

The mainstream media keep pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney not only because they are terrified of running against him, but also because they want to keep Republicans fighting, allowing Democrats to get a four-month jump on us.

Meanwhile, everyone knows the nominee is going to be Romney.

That's not so bad if you think the most important issues in this election are defeating Obama and repealing Obamacare.

As JimRob said, if you support Romney, you’re not welcome on Free Republic. That includes Ann Coulter.

And 4 years ago JimRob said if you support Rudy Giuliani you're not welcome at Free Republic.

Texas governor Rick Perry was the only Republican governor to support Giuliani. Would Perry have not been welcome at Free Republic? :-)

As Oldpossum stated, in days of yore (@ year ago) it wouldn't have taken 87 posts to get a picture of Ann, rules, dangit.
She has obviously teed off allot of conservatives. I don't miss the “eat a hamburger, Ann” jokes either, cause I'm as skinny as she is and a good hamburger is hard to find.

I no longer agree with her on more issues than I do agree. So Sad, she was a powerful voice for awhile.

I can see it now, Mitt will give a rousing acceptance speech at the Convention, and many here will fall for it.

I wouldn't go so far as to say that "many" will fall for it, but indeed, some will. The rest of us will be busy figuring out how to defeat Obama and the GOP, come November.

If Romney is forced on us as the GOP candidate, he will lose. They must see that.

Bet on it. One need only look at 2008 to know that is true. What short memories thy have.

Sometimes I think that is the real nail in the coffin for me, in regards to Romney. It’s bad enough, his liberalism, his flip-flops, his lack of core values. But, ultimately, the real clincher that will forever prevent me from EVER giving Romney my vote under any circumstances, was due to his sleazy operatives who joined the McCain campaign and proceded to backstab Palin, speading smears and lies to their buddies in the media, before the election was even over. True cretins.

That’s why we crossed out Guiliani.

She’s wrong about Mitt Romney. But she does a pretty good job of laying out the argument against Newt Gingrich. Fortunately for Newt, she made that stupid comment about the media pushing alternatives to Mitt, so maybe everybody will ignore her scathing commentary on Newt.

And she missed where Newt said he supported health insurance mandates.

“Among Romney’s positives is the fact that he has a demonstrated ability to trick liberals into voting for him. He was elected governor of Massachusetts — one of the most liberal states in the union — by appealing to Democrats, independents and suburban women.”

And how did he trick them?—by supporting their policies: abortion, universal state-funded health care, etc.

I will admit, I have no love loss for Ann Coulter’s apparent fall from conservative grace. :) Not since she played RIGHT in to the hands that LOVE the feel of CONSERVATIVE STEREOTYPES against their smarmy skin, the Democrats, when she used the term “rag heads” AT CPAC.

Sorry. :) She shoulda been ejected long ago as an opportunist in the conservative movement.

imHO of course. :)

Rudy has been cross-dressing since 2000 or sooner as you can see here.

If Perry didn't know about it before endorsing him he should have; he should have known everything about the man before giving him his endorsement. I can't prove it but I think he knew.

Of course it's also possible he knew and just didn't care. Whatever the case, Rudy was NOT the "most Reagan like" candidate in the race.

At the time Perry made that statement Duncan Hunter, Fred Thompson, Alan Keyes, Mike Huckabee and Tom Tancredo were all still in the race. So based on issues only, Perry considered pro-gay, pro-abortion, anti-Second Amendment liberal Rudy Giuliani 'more Reagan like" than all the above mentioned candidates. There's just no defending that.

What a bogus poll. Is there only two candidates in the race?

Nonetheless, it's not a tough question, even if you have reservations about Gingrich.

Oh please, she is anything but a closet liberal. She views the candidates, all of them weak, and believes Romney is the guy that will win. That’s all she is saying. She also knows he has the best chance to beat Obama. Gingrich is the smartest of the GOP candidates, but he will get killed in the media and has way too much baggage as she correctly exposes.

Cain, he won’t even finish in the top 2...he is starting to fade. It will be Romney, whether we like it or not. I’ll get attacked for saying that, but I’ve been more right than wrong on this stuff the last 24 months (Sharon Angle, O’Donnell, etc).

The next question will be if he is the nominee, will people here and elsewhere stay home or vote 3rd party to guarantee Obama another 4 years? Do they want a 100% liberal (Obama) or a 60% conservative (Rommney)?

It's like asking which eye would you rather have a sharp stick jammed into. Both answers blow.

I prefer Newt over Mutt any day. But to have a poll amongst the two candidates while ignoring others makes it a pretty worthless poll.

I’m not so sure about the Senate, after the should-have-won 2010 races in Nevada, Alaska, and Colorado. The GOP should be at 49 right now. Of course, the Nevada race was the hardest to stomach. Reid should have been toast, but he received a gift in the form of the disastrous Sharon Angle.

I wasn't aware of this until you brought it up on this thread.

I haven't ever supported Rick Perry for president because he's been pinging my radar the wrong way ever since I've lived in Texas. Something about the man just seems fake to me. This is just one more bit of hard evidence that my gut instincts have been right about him.

Ah yes, Fred Thompson. How I wish he had gotten into the 2008 race early and with the required heart and energy. He had a solid conservative record. He was charismatic. And he has a great voice and is a great speaker.

And unlike any other Republican running then (except Tancredo of course) or now, he had a plan for conservative immigration reform which didn’t include a path to citizenship for illegals. That by itself is not unique among the current crop, but Thompson actually came at legal immigration from a conservative standpoint (i.e. he didn’t call for increasing it). His plan called for ending Ted Kennedy’s Diversity Visa program, and for ending unending family chain migration.

Oh well, I guess there’s no point in indulging in what-might-have-beens.
