Ann Coulter: ONLY ONE CANDIDATE IS RIGHT ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES (Guess Who?)

ONLY ONE CANDIDATE IS RIGHT ON THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES

December 28, 2011
In the upcoming presidential election, two issues are more important than any others: repealing Obamacare and halting illegal immigration. If we fail at either one, the country will be changed permanently.

Taxes can be raised and lowered. Regulations can be removed (though they rarely are). Attorneys general and Cabinet members can be fired. Laws can be repealed. Even Supreme Court justices eventually die.

But capitulate on illegal immigration, and the entire country will have the electorate of California. There will be no turning back.

Similarly, if Obamacare isn't repealed in the next few years, it never will be.

America will begin its ineluctable descent into becoming a worthless Western European country, with rotten health care, no money for defense and ever-increasing federal taxes to support the nanny state.

So let's consider which of the Republican candidates are most likely to succeed at these objectives.

In order to allow Democrats to indignantly denounce Republicans who said Obamacare would add to the deficit, the bill was structured so that no goodies get paid out immediately. That way, when the Congressional Budget Office was asked to determine if Obamacare was "revenue neutral" over its first 10 years, government accountants were looking at a bill that collected taxes for 10 years, but only distributed treats in the later years.

Starting at year 11, those accountants will be in for a big surprise when the government starts paying out Obamacare benefits without interruption.

Because of this accounting fraud, Obamacare can still be repealed. But as soon as all Americans have been thrown off their employer-provided insurance plans and are forced to start depending on the government for health care, Republicans will never be able to repeal it.

The vast complex of unionized government workers managing our health care from Washington will fight to keep their jobs (for more on this topic, see the Department of Education), voters will want their "free" government treats (for more on this topic, see Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security) -- and even if they don't, there won't be a private insurance market for them to go back to (for more on this topic, see IRS rules favoring employer-provided health care).

That leaves us with Romney and Bachmann as the candidates with the strongest, most conservative positions on illegal immigration. As wonderful as Michele Bachmann is, 2012 isn't the year to be trying to make a congresswoman the first woman president.

Massive legal and illegal immigration has already so changed the California electorate that no Republican can be elected statewide anymore. Not so long ago, this was a state that produced great Republican governors and senators like Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, S.I. Hayakawa and Pete Wilson.
**sigh**

Sigh* is right. Ann can be so right on so many other things but in this case she has bought into the 40/40/20 percent, must have a centrist canidate, vote system and can’t seem to understand this election is about the reputation of B0-The-ZerO. Swinging the socalled 20% moderates and independents is not what is going to win this election it is about principles and using those principles to come up with practical solutions to our problems. It is all about mobilizing WE the TEA Party not the center.

As much as I used to like to read/listen to Ann, I just can’t get past the fact that she used to date that worthless POS Bill Maher.

This is getting embarrassing.

It’s one thing to be settling for Romney due to the (false) belief that he is the “most electable”.

But for Ann to continue to try and sell Romney as some conservative stalwart is baffling.

“In the upcoming presidential election, two issues are more important than any others: repealing Obamacare and halting illegal immigration.”

One of us has moved to an alternate reality...

Obamacare is based on Romneycare. For Romney to appeal Obamacare it would require an admission by Romney that Romneycare was a huge mistake and fundamentally flawed. What are the chances of that... Instead he's going to want to tinker with it because he believes, like all good leftest, that he can make it work where all others have failed...

Doesn't the poor woman know how much her Romney love is damaging her conservative credibility?

It's like she is Squeaky Fromm and Mitt is Charles Manson.

Just two years ago I would have eaten the corn out of Ann’s toes (if she would let me). Now I have doubts about her judgement. What has happened to her?

She’s been even extra shrewish lately about Romney - the guy she told CPAC was a sure loser to Obama. She’s been at this with great intensity for the last 30-60 days. She told Hannity on his radio show that Romeny had to be our nominee because he wouldn’t be able to be protrayed as “crazy” by the media. Is she that stupid? So what if they can’t demonize him in the same way they can Ron Paul - that doesn’t mean Romney can’t be demonized at all. And he most surely will be. Worse still, when he is targeted en masse by the Obama Billion Dollars - this guy is not exactly the quickest wit on his feet. He strains to be seen as nondescript, and that will be the glaring hole they expose. He’ll be Bob Dole all over again.

Notice how these Romney Shrews like Coulter have been screeching so loudly over the last month, trying to wrap this up for Romney now - before a single primary vote is cast. They know all too well that once votes start getting counted - especially in the South - Romney has next to zero chance of winning any of those. Yeah, they fully know that. That’s why the RINOs like Coulter want this sewn up now. And admonishes the TEA Party voters to just basically shut up and do what she says. She’s intolerable.

Wow!

Is Ann really that stupid? The Republican candidate must first secure the conservative base before running after the squishy middle. Reagan knew that; poor Ann doesn’t.

The Mittwit consistently polls at 25% or less among all Republicans. How many conservative Republicans support Mittwit? 3%? 2%?

With Republican candidates, the questions is NOT who's right on the issues. We've had that hundreds of times. The question is, who can be counted on to carry out their stated beliefs.

Romney defends himself on his flip-flops by telling us, he had to get elected in a northeast liberal state. OK. Then today, he's telling us, what he needs to get elected in a conservative dominanted primary system. What's he going to do in office?

I just don't see Romney having his stated beliefs in his heart. They are tactical positions to take to win the election. Then, Romney wants to be liked. He's a squish and he'll be flaked, formed and molded by the Beltway culture, Demopublican political elites, the dinosaur media and oopsy-whoopsy, there go those promises. He'll bring them out in time for his re-election campaign.

I just don't trust Romney.

So why did Ann say this about Newt 4 years ago...

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1777400/posts

-—Newt Gingrich:

“Absolutely brilliant.”

“His closet has certainly been thoroughly investigated already.”

“I wish we could bring him in to pinch-hit for all presidential debates.”

Ann is certainly in tune with the main stream media.

There has got to be something in the water.

Maybe it’s those aircraft vapor trails.

Perhaps it’s subliminal television manipulation.

Maybe they’ve come up with a version of birth control that rots the ‘Conservative’ gene.

Maybe she’s being blackmailed. Are her dog, cat, or parents okay?

Whew, Ann, whatever it is, wake the hell up.

Ann has long ago been possessed by a liberal/libertarian spirit, and no conservative priest can exorcise it out of here, because she’s not willing.

This WEASEL FLIP SLICK WILLARD RINO ROMNEY DOESN'T HAVE THE BALLS to fight communists.

He is a coward from a family of military service avoiding cowards, a cultist, and a degenerate liar.

The Romneys are cowards and snake oil salesmen.

Its unconscionable that they en mass have forsworn fighting this nations foreign wars, and he should be disqualified for national office based on that alone.

His father didnt serve either, and the rest of the clan were busy hiding in Mexico where they could practice muslim style polygamy.

He has also taken a firm stand against illegal immigration, which is somewhat ironic, as the evidence suggests that Romney's own grandfather came to America as an illegal immigrant.

His great-grandfather, a devout Mormon in a time when his church encouraged polygamy, fled the US with his multiple wives in 1884, when American law could strip polygamists of the right to vote or serve on juries.

Romney's grandfather and father were born and raised in Mexico, and Romney's father was a child when his family left Mexico at the height of the Mexican Revolution, in 1912. Romney's father's and grandmother were American citizens under the law at that time, and came to America on a train, while his grandfather crossed the border northward in classic "illegal immigrant" fashion, entering US territory on a long walk over barren desert land.
