IF NOT ROMNEY, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?November 16, 2011So 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.
Is this Ann Coulter, or B arbara S treisand?
Not buying it, Ann.
This is what Texas governor Rick Perry said was "the closest thing we have to a Ronald Reagan Republican in this race".
The Left is looking forward to taking out Mittens.
For now, they’re keep the guns quiet.
Some things don’t sit well with me including someone who made transvestism look cool.
That’s why we crossed out Guiliani.
We need to make sure now that happens to Slick Willard.
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.
Wow. She really should've eaten right long ago..........................
"Ugly" and "Ann Coulter" will likely not belong in the same sentence for another fifteen to twenty years.
You keep posting that garbage and you'll get "it" alright.
Ann needs to dive back into the bottle.
The last time we actually ran a rock-ribbed conservative, we won forty-nine of the fifty-seven states!
Why would we EVER want to make that mistake again??
RINO Ann. RINO.
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. :)
Pretty sick. I wonder if Perry knew about Giuliani’s cross dressing escapades before, or after he endorsed him? Do you think he even knows now?
Does Romney have photos of Ann Coulter naked with zoo animals?
I’ve never seen her so fanatically in support of anybody else.
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.
Heard on the Tammy Bruce show one her guests “soft shilled” for Romney because he can be (wait for it) “Bullied” into submission by the conservatives!!!
Oh joy, a POTUS who’s best quality is being bullied by congress.
People are making the lamest of excuses to pull the Romney lever.
Nonetheless, it's not a tough question, even if you have reservations about Gingrich.
