Skip to comments.Ann Coulter​: I Would Prefer Ron Paul​ Over Newt Gingrich
Posted on 12/20/2011 8:29:09 AM PST by TBBT
Appearing on Fox News Channels Red Eye last night, conservative firebrand and frequent courter of controversy, Ann Coulter told the panel that if the choice for the Republican presidential nominee came down to Texas Rep. Ron Paul or former House Speaker Newt Gingrich she would prefer Paul.
She stops short of suggesting that she would vote for Paul in a third party bid as conservative radio host Glenn Beck recently suggested, but Coulter has serious reservations (like most editorial board GOPers) about Gingrichs big government conservatism.
While Coulter curries much favor among the Tea Party Republican set, not all who are inclined to agree with her combative Republicanism agree with her.
Popular conservative columnist Joshua Treviño took to Twitter to echo the sentiments of many in the Republican establishment when he colorfully expressed his reservations about Pauls untraditional foreign policy perspectives.

Ann has lost all credibility when it comes to speaking for Conservatives. She and Ron Paul are both kooks.
Yep...I don’t listen to her at all and haven’t for some time now. She’s played her cards and they aren’t in my game.
Wasn’t her ticket to fame her proclamation that we should conquer the Middle East and convert them to Christianity? Ron Paul over Newt my @$$. Maybe she can start a Neocons for Paul pac.
It is REALLY time to ban Ann Coulter posts from Free Republic. IF she was, she might grow a brain and stop saying such stupid things.
Whatever, she is going from being a mere whore to an insane one.
Youre right, and Rush said the same thing. Newt scares these people because he is conservative.
I’d like to know if the nom goes to Newt if she’ll vote for him or for Obama. That’s the question to ask her.
I’ve always loved her works and her combativeness, her willingness to be the bomb thrower to answer those on the left, and the fact that she was more often than not exactly right.
But it seems that the more people who come out in support of Romney, like Ann Coulter, the more he tracks to the left.
I just wonder where she, and others, will draw the line.
Quite a Bombastic statement.
Let me also say that there is more she said which was out of line. They asked her what “zany” means talking about the attack ads on Newt. She said “It is a nice way of saying he is crazy. You do know Newt is crazy, don’t you?” (Mark Levin said there is a concerted effort out there to paint Newt as crazy and it is very sad.) She furthermore said she and Beck are taking heat for supporting Ron Paul over Newt. Gee...I wonder why? I happened to be up late that night and caught the show. What a shame.
It’s clear she’s a fake. She’s always had liberal friends like Bill Maher and Andrew Stein. Actions speak louder than words. It’s obvious that she uses conservative politics for her own benefit rather than because she truly believes in conservatism.
Maybe because some single male conservatives find her attractive??
She was always a phony, IMO. She’s even admitted to have dated a Muslim, in addition to all her other liberal BFs.
The woman is an egomaniacal idiot.
Woman?? Don’t be so sure.
At one time I was flamed quite a bit here on FR for pointing out exactly what this “woman” (or whatever gender it is) ...is.
Looks like almost everybody’s awakened now.
I’m not a fan of Newt, but that comment from Ann is just stupid. I heard Glenn Beck say the same thing this last week. I like Beck and subscribe to GBTV, but if he goes down the Ron Paul lunacy path I will dump his show fast.
Ms. Coulter has spent too much time in Manhattan, limousine liberals and liberal Republicans.
She’s lost it now.
Stop it nobody believes any women hit on newt
“Ann has lost all credibility when it comes to speaking for Conservatives. She and Ron Paul are both kooks.”
Ann is also a Harlot of sorts....Paul is just a kook! - a really scary one.
“Acting like a know it all and saying your conservative isn’t enough”
Funny, that’s exactly what Newt is doing. That is why even Paul is better than Newt... because Newt is a liar.
Paul is no conservative. And he’s a liar and a fraud.
I’d prefer it if Coulter would just come out as a lesbian.
I’ve never listened to her. She’s always been a fake. Just someone out to make a buck.
She has lived in NYC farrrr too long!
I thought that she was a transsexual. It’s the Adam’s apple. Girls just don’t grow them.
Her throat looks like that because she’s really skinny.
