Coulter: ‘With Newt Gingrich you throw out the baby and keep the bath water’
The Daily Caller ^ | 21 Jan 2012 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 01/22/2012 3:42:26 PM PST by mandaladon

On a Sunday morning appearance on “Fox & Friends,” conservative columnist Ann Coulter explained why Romney fell short in the South Carolina GOP presidential primary, blaming the priorities of South Carolina voters for Gingrich’s success.

“Apparently, South Carolinians would rather have the emotional satisfaction of a snotty remark toward the president than to beat Obama in the fall,” Coulter, the author of “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob Is Endangering America,” said. “We saw it in the debates when Gingrich would say things that didn’t really make sense. That is what you usually associate with Democrats, which I described in my last book, ‘Demonic,’ how mobs behave.”

Some of what Gingrich has said might appear to make sense, she said, but should be analyzed more closely.

“Something that sounds like it makes sense like, ‘Mitt Romney doesn’t have influence over his super PAC — that makes you wonder if he’ll have influence as president,’” she continued. “How many times does Mitt Romney have to say it is illegal for a candidate to have influence on the super PAC. It is not, interestingly, though, for a president to have influence. So it makes no sense if you think about it for all of three seconds, but it sounds like it makes sense. It is just like what you get from liberals most of the time and the cheers and yahoos, and that is what we kept getting from this audience.”

Coulter, who has been a Romney supporter since New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie said he would not be seeking the Republican nomination, was asked if Romney should change his strategy now that he suffered a defeat in South Carolina, and perhaps go on the offensive with “fire in the belly.”

Stick it in your ear Ann! We have someone, although not perfect, who blasted the MSM for helping to ruin this country. Newt will bury BO. I would take Newt over the moderate lets all get along Romney.

Agreed. But I would still rather have someone more conservative than Newt. Too bad the nomination is going to be decided before it gets to PA. There has to be a better way to run primaries.

With titles like "Demonic", I doubt a RINO would buy her books, lest their Chardonnay-swilling libs friends make fun of them, or worse yet, not invite them to their cocktail parties.

This delusional closet RINO seems to think that the only people in SC that could possibly vote for Newt have to be “liberals”. Ground control to this moron, South Carolina is the conservative state in the union and can spot a fake and phoney liberal a mile off. His name is Willard. Coulter should craw back under the rock she came from.

Other “conservatives” from northeastern states are saying similar things. As one example, Howie Carr continues to disappoint conservatives on a variety of issues, while being pro-Romney and “pro-other RINO politicians” all of the way, during the ‘12 GOP POTUS race.

Ann Coulter,

Understand this. Mitt Romney has been a gun grabber for the greater extent of his life. He joined the NRA for the first time in 2008. He did it for electability.

I am not buying it.

Romney=Gun Grabber.

Your endorsement confounds me and lessens my respect for you.

Regards,

JJ

Why do we call Romney moderate? He is a liberal in republican clothing. Moderate is the media's cover for liberal republicans, and all democrats except those who are not embarrassed to call themselves socialist.

You and a lot of other Freepers. Me? I have always been kind of puzzled by those who make her out to be some sort of Conservative demigoddess.

She’s always been too much of an East-Coast cocktail party set type to me. She writes a good column, and she can be witty, but she’s not as smart, not as sharp and certainly not as hot as a lot of people seem to think.

“How many times does Mitt Romney have to say it is illegal for a candidate to have influence on the super PAC."

I know Ann's not stupid, so that comment makes her intellectually dishonest--willing to lie to promote Romney, or at least, to make excuses for him.

Even Joe Scarborough, who absolutely hates Newt Gingrich, said that Mitt's argument that he was legally forbidden to have any contact with the SuperPac was intellectually dishonest.

Does anyone doubt that if Mitt went to a microphone and told the press that he objects to what the SuperPac supporting his nomination is saying and say "If they truly respect me and want to support me and my candidacy, they would stop running that ad," the ad would be dropped immediately?

It's a lie and Mitt and she both know it's a lie.

The issue is the rank an file republicans dont like Newt. He does not use his last name on banners. He talks down to people and he is pissed at where we are in this country.

I agree with him and yes Mitt is just a lap dog for Rove and the rest of washington. I really dont care what the insiders are saying. They had their chance with Bush and look what we got, Obama. This is just like where we where in 1980.

Newt will make it all over and no one will put Mitt in the presidency. If Mitt is forced upon us I look forward to third party.

Never liked the lady personally. She always has seemed more moderate than conservative.

For instance her almost blinding loyalty to Christie and now mittens. Neither is pro life in my book.

Her one agenda is promoting Ann Coulter the female Karl Rove.

Coulter’s opinion that on 2 most important things (to repeal Obamacare and to prevent another amnesty) Romney's positions are most certain (with exception of Bachmann) - he will do both.
Coulter claims that any other candidate will allow Obamacare and Dream Act to go through and that will irreversibly change the Republic.
She thinks all other issues are secondary and based on those 2 Romney is her candidate.

I think you put your finger on it there. Also, the professional political types, who include the pundits, are invested simply in winning the election, without regard to Win How or Win For What. They've selected their Winner - Romney - and the fact that he's the Business As Usual Candidate who will probably just be the Designated Gentleman Loser in this cycle matters less to them than that he's the plausible, pragmatic choice. In other words, their asses are covered, they went along with the conventional wisdom, and nobody can blame them when he loses in November.

The rest of us want to win for a reason other than keeping Boehner as Speaker and making Mitch the Senate Majority Leader, and moving a few deckchairs around on the Titanic.

Dear Ann....wrong.

Since the leaders of that PAC are folks known to Romney, then of course he should be able to influence them. And, just as Gingrich said, if Mitt’s wringing his hands lamenting their woeful ways, yet at the same time knowing exactly who they are, then one does have to wonder what’s wrong with Mitt that doesn’t have a clue how publicly to express his displeasure with their ads. Nor does he have any idea how to speak to friends jointly known to both parties expressing his dismay at behavior he doesn’t want.

Ann should practice the logic she laments others lacking.

She's gone over the deep end. Here's a quote for Ann:

which ones you'll have to eat."

I think a lot of people are repulsed by Newt. (I am not one of them). He's been around a long time. His track record is well known. It's possible Coulter and Newt have history of some sort.

She's certainly convinced Newt is a loser.

Ann seemed to like Newt better a few years ago...

“This is what Republicans are like today. They swear up and down not to trust the liberal media, but as soon as that very media demonize some Republican, half our party is ready to dump him... Another candidate liberals told us was a disaster for the party was Ronald Wilson Reagan... Other Republicans we’ve been told were a disaster for the party are Newt Gingrich who produced the jaws-of-life to tear Congress from the Democrats”

http://www.anncoulter.com/cgi-local/printer_friendly.cgi?article=107

More evidence of hypocrisy from Ann in her column titled “LIBERAL WAR ON TERRORISM HEATS UP: DELAY FINALLY CAPTURED” published on April 5, 2006. She defends Newt against the frivolous ethics charges Nancy Pelosi helped to slap on him:

“at the urging of the Democrats, the Internal Revenue Service spent 3 1/2 years investigating Gingrich’s
college course. After all the hullabaloo, the result was: No crime. The classes “were not biased toward particular politicians or a particular party” — thus distinguishing Gingrich’s class from every other college course in America.”
