Ann Coulter: IOWA SHOWS REPUBLICANS DETERMINED TO BEAT OBAMA (Romney/McCain 2012)

IOWA SHOWS REPUBLICANS DETERMINED TO BEAT OBAMA

January 4, 2012
It's been a mixed week for Mitt Romney's campaign. On one hand, Romney won Iowa, but on the other, he was endorsed by John McCain.

Until the first actual votes were cast Tuesday night, it appeared as if some elements of the Republican Party were becoming the mirror image of a liberal mob.

The wild swings -- at least in the polls -- from one populist right-winger to another suggested that some Republicans were determined to change the meaning of "conservative" from "normal person who wants to protect what's best in mainstream America" to "perpetually indignant, restless carper against everything, obsessed with symbolic issues, determined to punish the country for its impurities."

Some Republicans, we were led to believe, would only be satisfied with angry denunciations of Obama as a Kenyan colonialist and demands for Barack Obama's birth certificate -- without ever spending five minutes of calm contemplation to see that he had already produced it.

And if there's anyplace for a zealot to shine, it's in a caucus state like Iowa.

But Romney won -- in a razor-close finish with another plausible candidate, Rick Santorum.

The reason the Iowa caucuses rarely produce the party's eventual nominee is not because Iowans are wacky white Christians, as some in the media have claimed, but because caucuses are ridiculous ways to choose a presidential candidate. It is a process that empowers the pushy and loud, much like a Manhattan co-op board meeting, but, unfortunately, not like anything envisioned by our founding fathers.

Instead of arguing for hours in public with partisans in order to cast a ballot, voters are supposed to put on their shoes, fight off the Black Panthers on the way to their precincts, vote in private and go home.

So the fact that the Iowa caucuses avoided giving the gold to Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul or some other sure-to-lose candidate shows that Republicans are dead serious about beating Obama this fall. Even in Iowa, the only Republican with a chance of doing that won. Read More »

I remember some columnist who used to write under the name Ann Coulter. I think she used to be a conservative.

Don’t recall what happened to that conservative woman. I think she became a Myth Romney shill.

Coulter, soon to follow the likes of Spector and Bloomberg and become a democrat out of convenience.

She is toast as a professed conservative.

Ann is delusional if she thinks last night was a win for Mittens. He didn’t add any support to his overprice campaign. It was a failure.

Hmmmm, Coulter compares Gingrich with Ahmadinejad.

He's the terrorist that was involved in the 1979 hostage taking in Iran.

(And I think that the terrorist dictatorship regime of Iran is the only one in the Mideast that Obama put his stamp of approval on.
The others he turned over to his Muslim Brotherhood buddies---You know, the creators of terrorist groups surrounding Israel.)

Now he is President of Iran and still a terrorist.

Maybe Ann can compare notes with Biden, who declared that the tea partiers are like terrorists.

Ann being an attorney sometimes gets blinded by her degree. Just because BO showed a document which has been picked apart as being a fraud and still has her head in the sand. She keeps this up and she will be a foot note in the books her and all the rest of the rommybots.

Ann, rather than trying to jump a shark, is quite successfully jumping a whale.

Mitt got 25% of the IA votes, while the anti-Mitt got 75% of the IA votes. Sounds like a landslide to me... with Mitt getting trounced.

THAT is the quintessential ideology of a republican blue blood elitist.

I have posted many youtubes of Coulter’s appearances on TV, etc.

It's amazing the degree of deep seated hatred in the vitriolic comments that people post there.

Yes, some death threats.

She has excellent security of course.

What an extraordinary thing for a "right-winger conservative" to say. Similar to Newt saying that Paul Ryan's budget plan was "right-wing social engineering."

The only way either of these comments make sense is if neither speaker - Newt or Ann - is a right-wing conservative anymore.

Here are the vote getters in the last several caucuses, FWIW. In instances where there was a non-incumbent, it picked the nominee exactly 50% of the time. Ann used the word :rarely” to describe how often the nominee was the same as the winner. That is a lie. Rush was doing it too. Not sure what his game is though.

2008 – Mike Huckabee (34%), Mitt Romney (25%), Fred Thompson (13%), John McCain (13%), Ron Paul (10%), Rudy Giuliani (4%), and Duncan Hunter (1%)
2004 – George W. Bush (unopposed)
2000 – George W. Bush (41%), Steve Forbes (31%), Alan Keyes (14%), Gary Bauer (9%), John McCain (5%), and Orrin Hatch (1%)
1996 – Bob Dole (26%), Pat Buchanan (23%), Lamar Alexander (18%), Steve Forbes (10%), Phil Gramm (9%), Alan Keyes (7%), Richard Lugar (4%), and Morry Taylor (1%)
1992 – George H. W. Bush (unopposed)
1988 – Bob Dole (37%), Pat Robertson (25%), George H. W. Bush (19%), Jack Kemp (11%), and Pete DuPont (7%)
1984 – Ronald Reagan (unopposed)
1980 – George H. W. Bush (32%), Ronald Reagan (30%), Howard Baker (15%), John Connally (9%), Phil Crane (7%), John B. Anderson (4%), and Bob Dole (2%)
1976 – Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan

It depends on your definition of "win". If it means something other than "received the most votes", then yes.
