Skip to comments.I won't sit back while Ann Coulter attacks the Tea Party

You know, if it weren't for Romney supporters, I might be able to support the guy.
On Tuesday night, Ann Coulter was a guest on the Sean Hannity Show where she said this:
COULTER: I think the candidate, it is going to be and is the strongest candidate to beat Obama is Mitt Romney. And, you know, I'm a little tired of these Johnny-come-lately conservative purists. She's talking about us, the tea party. She is calling us Johnny-come-latelys, saying, basically, "Where were you when we were fighting all this time, you just showed up on the scene in 2009, who are you to deign to come in and pick our candidate for us, you tea party morons." Then she has to go and throw in the "conservative purists" label. That got me angry.
Where were we, Ann? We were buying your books, learning. We were raising our families, trying to make a better life for them than we had, driving our trucks until gas cost $100 a fill-up, figuring that hard times were just a bump in the road, as usual. But then came Obama, and we can see, because we are parents and understand a little better how life operates, that no matter what we do to try to make our kids' lives better than ours, this spending and agenda for America means they will never have it as good as us. So yeah, we are going to pick your candidate for you. We are the ones who have the most to lose. We own property, work hard, and we aren't going anywhere. And you know what else, for somebody who is a lawyer and purported to be a great thinker, you couldn't come up with a more accurate phrase than 'conservative purists' to describe mainstream America? I'll give you a hint. We are Americans, and in America, the people are constitutionally mandated to be in charge of their government.
Coulter: Where were they when we were running John McCain? For Pete's sake, Romney is a million times better than McCain.John McCain isn't running. I agree Romney is better than John McCain, but you're not! You have decided to snipe at regular American people who have bought your books and learned the ropes while raising our families, and you call us Johnny-come-latelys?! Who the hell do you think reads your stuff?! So now you get to sit right next to McCain, who calls us hobbits.
Coulter: Romney speaks absolutely beautifully, he's been magnificent in the debates. I think he's a little bit of a country club Republican, too, but let's just get a Tepublican in there and get Obama out and as long as we have a Republican Senate -- by the way, Tea Partiers, that's what we need to be working on, Republicans picking up the Senate.Alright, what she is saying now is the same thing they said about O'Donnell, and Angle, and Palin, and anyone that the American People prefer over their pick. She is regurgitating verbatim what I heard on last November when my candidate won. All the little twenty-something consultants and beltway hacks were dumping on O'Donnell for losing the Senate. But the beltway and the Republican establishment in Delaware worked against her the entire campaign. Now, the mere mention of O'Donnell to these beltway losers creates convulsions. So that shoots a huge hole in the idea that Coulter is an original thinker.
HANNITY: But here's a problem he's facing. And this is important. He has had a hard time up until now. Now, it's fascinating in the polls, he's the one guy that has remained a frontrunner, has not lost that status from the very beginning. It seems like he is having -- it doesn't seem like, he's having problems with some of the conservative base in the polls there.This constant beating-up of Reagan by beltway losers is supremely irritating to me. I was a kid when Reagan was in office, and Coulter acts like 'Reagan was a one-timer, get over it.' No, it is conservatism we need, and your guy Romney is not one. He evokes zero ambition, zero emotion and zero faith that he will not acquiesce to those terrible, mean, nasty, Marxist, xenophobes that you have been writing about, and are running the government right now! For crying out loud! Oh, and Romney's such a nice guy, gee, he doesn't want to say those incendiary things that those crazy tea partiers say...that is exactly what McCain did. You cannot win a campaign against a Marxist that way, who will stop at nothing to get elected. Romney is getting such velvet glove treatment, that he'll be turned into mincemeat, and you know what else? When we are up against people who are trying to destroy America, nice guys finish last. How do you think Romney will react when they go for his short-and-curlies? Hmm, Coulter? Ever think of that? To think that you have been laying the case for years about how liberalism is destroying America, and how to talk to libs, and their agenda is Demonic, yet you say, hey everybody, let's throw some oatmeal at him, that'll really get him!
COULTER: Right. That's what I'm saying. What the reason for that is, and I understand this, I agree, this seems, feels like 1980. If we had a Ronald Reagan out there, we could probably win with the Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan is not available this year. We have to -- and Romney is well-known to --well the electorate generally and conservatives -- we know what his negatives are but we have to keep cycling through these other conservatives to find out what their negatives are. And boy, the Obama White House is loving this, keep Republicans fighting.
COULTER: What I think Republicans should be and conservatives, people who care about this country should be looking at, is not just can you check off this issue, this issue, this issue, but who can you send in, in the debates against Obama? I think hands down that is Mitt Romney.
What if Obama refuses to have a debate? His supporters don't watch debates, we do. Debates are for us to decide and discern, and weigh options and measure the candidates because we are thinkers. The leftists and anarchists are emotional. I actually think you were the first one to teach me that. So why the hell would Obama not just sidestep the debates? He is, after all, ignoring every proper and ethical way to run the nation, throwing separation of powers in the ditch, shredding the Constitution, WAKE UP! By the way, any Republican can win a debate against Obama, because it would only be watched by us!! But let's say Obama gives in and only has one debate, we'll all say for months that our guy won the debate, while him and his pukes pick Romney apart, pitting all groups of people against one another, making everyone afraid of everything, as usual.
The beginning of the segment on Hannity talks about Chris Christie warning Republicans not to underestimate Obama's campaign, and then Ann Coulter, Christie's biggest supporter, trips on in, and underestimates it completely.
Ann’s little display on Hannity the other night was one of the most obnoxious things I’ve ever seen ...she would not shut up and blathered on mindlessly the entire segment....and don’t get me started on Laura, she is one rude elitist little woman
The circular firing squad is omnipresent on FR. As Ross Perot would say,”Larry, it’s just sad...”
Someone on Fox News this morning reminded us that establishment Republicans told us that Gerald Ford was the best Republican to beat Jimmy Carter and, we know how that turned out.
Ignore this rhetoric and vote for the person who will best support the values we hold and filter out the others.
Coulter got it....money from writing books conservatives wanted to buy..said what conservatives wanted her to say, now with lots of money she can be herself...a rino..
They (Sean, Laura, and Annie) hate the Tea Party because they were not invited to $peak and feel they were part of it’s leadership. They are mad because they feel cut out of the conservative movement’s leadership with no adoring crowds.
They would have been speakers had they not lost their own cutting edge in promoting conserverative reisitence and reform. Instead all three become inside the beltway brain dead quackers and associated with the PROBLEM of inside the beltway sleep walking. They didn’t like Beck and Palin taking their places as speakers.
They will go where the $$$$$$$$$$ is. Now Ann sees her major money coming from groups like the brown loggers and other social left wing “Republicans.” Too bad.
Mr. Coulter has been exposed for being the RINO that he has always been.
She's selling books hand over fist.
Maybe she is willing to quit...smoking.
Ann jumpped the shark long ago and proved it when she started dancing with the homosexuals.
Where were we in 2002? Well I know where I was in 1998. I was Marching for Justice in Washington, DC, with the rest of the Freepers who wanted the impeached Clinton, removed from office, and wanted their country back. You were there too Ann, speaking to the masses. I’ve never bought one of your books, and neither have a lot of other folks you’re railing against. I’ve been a member of the Republican party for many years, and during those years, I’ve seen the party hijacked by individuals in the GOP who decided that being spineless and playing nice with the Democrats was what the country wanted. It’s that mind-set that brought us to where we are today. We didn’t like it then, and we don’t like it now. We’re tired of the GOP elite, and the media deciding who our candidates will be, then having to hold our noses when we cast our votes. We’re sick of individuals like Karl Rove, you, and others, foisting your belief system on the rest of us, and belittling us because we question those beliefs, along with your judgement. You’re no better than the Democrats who think we’re too stupid to know what’s best for us. News flash Ann! We’re bright, intelligent, and independent, and we won’t cower to you, or your liberal counter-parts, so bugger off!
Megan has lawyers disease, she can never see black and white unless she supports one or the other.
FOX has become a record and fast forward channel. I wouldn't watch it live if you paid me.
Interesting to note, I have charter cable and it won't record FOX News as a series. Used to, but not now.
Jen Kuznicki: Don't tread on us!
Is Mitt Romney Ann Coulter's 'flavor of the month?' Last month it was Christy.
This will be the third shakeup in a row, and I expect we’ll keep doing it until we get it right. *I* think that the dem takeover and now our counterattack represent what I call “churn” among the voters — it’s the only way to get some of the b@stard lifers out of there and get some real people in. It’s a horrible, horrible inbred institution.
Ok Ann, you just pass the WRONG line.
Some of us have been fighting the Dumocrat/commie/fascist/marxist political war long before YOU were even born.
You got ricch off of the hard work Republicans were doing in the trenches out in the hinterlands. The Dums had a strangle hold on this country. It took hard A** work AT THE GRASSROOTS PRECICNT level to get the Republicans in positions to actually make a difference.
I got so tired of watching Repubs just spend their days at the Golf course since they were never consulted or even asked for an opinion. YES WE STILL HAVE SOME OF THEM STILL IN CONGRESS. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO we don’t want the posterboy for the spineless Establishment as President.
Hey Ann do you know where the term Country Club Repub comes from? Didn’t think So? It is the term the Repubs got for spending decades at the Country Club whike the Dummies ran Congress and the Country into the ground.
WE Have had it. If you all don’t want to work, fine cut your hours and pay. That’ll work for me.
Why do you want to throw Ann anywhere and what makes you think you are so pure? :)
DITTO; DITTO; & BRAVO; BRAVO!!!!!!!!!
Ann Coulter used to be a conservative. Writing all those books got to her head. If she thinks Romney is a conservative, then Obama is a moderate. And on many issues, Romney is well to the left of Obama. If the American people don’t understand that yet, they will soon enough. Conservatives do, which is why they don’t want the GOP to nominate him. For every one, except for Coulter, its that obvious.
“Does anyone even bother with donating to any Republican committees anymore? With the internet, its easy to just pick individual candidates to organize behind and support.
The parties are in roughly the same situation as the record companies are when it comes to music - technology means that the artists and the people can pass them by and link up directly.”
No party donations for me.
Not since Newt Gingrich endorsed Dede Scozzafava in NY-23 House race.
Sarah Palin endorsed the pro-life tea party guy, and I sent him money.
Since then, I’ve only sent $ to individual politicians.
