Ann Coulter: “Three cheers for RomneyCare”
Hot Air ^ | January 31, 2012 | ALLAHPUNDIT

Posted on 02/01/2012 8:24:30 PM PST by RobinMasters

Remember what I said in the minimum-wage thread about conservatives gradually being forced to play ideological Twister to defend Romney if he’s the nominee? Here’s Exhibit AAA1.

I don’t understand. I don’t understand why, if you support one of these candidates, it can’t simply be because they’re the best of a bad lot. This happens endlessly in the comments here as Romney fans and Gingrich fans insult each other into digging in ever deeper behind their guy, but I can’t fathom why that mindset would affect Coulter. She has a million arguments for Romney over Gingrich or Santorum if she wants them: He’s a better fundraiser and organizer, he polls better against Obama head to head, he’s good enough at debates to have thwarted Newt twice in Florida, he’s got private sector experience, etc. There’s simply no need to cheer him on for the least conservative thing he ever did in public life. Either she’s so sick of people dumping on her for backing Mitt that she decided to write this as a rhetorical middle finger to her critics or she’s curious to see just how strong her persuasive powers over the right are. If she can turn them around on RomneyCare, she can turn them around on anything.

She's just another Vichy Republican pretending to be Conservative but helping the fascist democrats and partying with the fascist troopers. Shave her head so everyone will know what she's been up to then ignore her.

The Alarm Bell on Coulter started ringing years ago with her proclivity for hanging around talentless, hate-filled cowardly smegma, Bill Maher.

The left of the GOP smells victory once and for all, over the right.

Before they were mostly driven off, the Romney people here truly worshiped him, adored him, they really see saw him as their version of Reagan and Palin, and Washington rolled into one, they see him as the guy that can make it all right, the guy who fixes things, who can get it done.

I don’t know why they see that when we see abject failure (34% approval leaving office?), and radical liberalism, but Coulter seems to be one of his true devotees.

I think it is because they see him as the effective killer of social conservatism, the burden of conservative Christians that the moderate Republicans cannot seem to rid themselves of.

The democrats try to destroy us, the GOP tries to destroy us, but Mitt had great success in Massachusetts, winning the great social liberal victories of his day against us.

Nice pic, but I think “ELITIST” would be a more fitting caption. Like many of those she pals around with, they worship and adore the power that comes from being in the know, having the right connections, and being considered smarter than the rest of us. That’s what leads them to do stupid outrageous stuff like this.

Rick Perry’s idea of a part-time congress is making more and more sense.

You’re right about Maher but we continued to think that she was actually a Conservative.. We are to blame for that!

We continued to hang on when she recommended Chris Christie and now we hang on for Romney. Can we finally get a grip?

She is a user, a book hound, a political hack that has finally decided to hang onto a Republican candidate as her winner.

She has never been a Conservative!

Time to show her that her book sales are dependent upon her beliefs and ignore her from now on. She has show herself to be a political werewolf looking for blood - us...

Time to abandon her...

The only explanations I can fathom are Ann went off the deep end or Mitt has compromising photos of her.

I’m going steady with the bigger, more fundamental idea of HARD term limits, AKA “No Careers in Politics”.

Serve, and then return to the private sector.

This would clean up SO much that is wrong with our current corruption incubating “system”

If I had my way, the the repel of Obamacare is more important then winning the presidency.

I hate Romneycare almost as much.

Ann didn't have a strong enough character to keep from being corrupted by her success.
She wants to fit in with her media friends.

The rubes in flyover country embarrass her now. She forgets who bought her books and made her someone.

Colter is just another media/Romney tag-along. She would do anything, and say anything to get her mug on TV. First, it had to be Christy…she even told us if we elected Romney, he would just loose. Now, after Christy said no...she decided to back the next-best looser Romney. Look at all the losers backing this guy. Dole, McLame, etc.

I took great delight answering one of her Emails the other night. I posted it here, and it was immediately pulled for the use of “media $$ore” to explain Coulter. She is what she is! Now, do you think if Gingrich wins the nomination she will be on board? She does insist that she is a true [c]onservative after all! NOT!!! Just another RINO supporting the “next-in-line” RINO!

Does it sound like I am bitter? NO! I am just sick to death of the elites in this party, as well as the media making the decision that WE THE PEOPLE do not have the intelligence to make the right choice for a nominee. What the Romney campaign did to carpet-bomb Mr. Newt may be fair-play in some political playbooks, but not mine.

Mr. Newt is not perfect, who is? He like many in our party, made mistakes, but he at least admits his mistakes. Show me one politician that has accomplished what Mr. Newt has accomplished for the Conservative movement. I will vote for him/her. I will otherwise vote for the most Conservative who can fight like a pit bull. EAGLES UP MR. NEWT!

Anne you got on the wrong horse this time—Enjoy the ride while its there, but know this—if mittens wins he will drop you so fast your head will spin. Your like the Cherokee who backed the Confederacy—doomed to go down in flaming defeat when the MSM rips the bottom out on the SS Mittens and his Mormon Mafia. We in the Tea Party have long memories-—

Actually, I’m shocked that she thinks she has the influence necessary to promote such a loser as Romney. She has become a bit delusional - maybe too long within the beltway crowd.

I think that she must not have a very high opinion of the effort she put into some of her recent books, to the extent that she was surprised at the great reception these books recieved in the bookstores. The unfortunate lesson she learned from this is, that her fanbase isn’t very bright. Thus, she is emboldened to spout utter garbage like, “ooh, Romney-Care is the greatest thing since slice bread!” and expects her fans to eat it up. Her actions reveal that she is a whore and has no principles.

Say no to the GOP's Rhino left. But start thinking about standing up a Conservative Party if this election cycle becomes a lost cause... Just pray hard that it doesn't.

Don’t let the mistakes of Gingrich’s past obscure objectivity. I detect a passion for right governance in him amid all the garbage and clutter of his reputation.

Remember that we are opposing a real threat to the existence of America residing in the White House right now, and the prospect of his RE-ELECTION looms bigger every day.

Grab the strongest nominee that we know as a weapon to defend the United States against the Mexican invasion, the Islamic invasion, the economic disaster brewing and the erosion of our freedom and support him all the way to the Presidency!

I totally agree! Did you read the article saying we should keep Hatch because he is a conservative? Really? We need term limits because of people like him and others who begin to believe they have a right to decide our lives for us. He can be conservative at times, but he’s also known for compromising. We need a continual flow of new blood, no ruling class. Our forefathers did not envision a ruling class.

There must be something REALLY fab about being in Congress. Not being desirous of power over others myself, I suppose I don’t understand that allure.

Of course, having your ass kissed continually by people from every direction, has a certain appeal that is hard for any human being to resist.

The best way to end that potential for abuse, is to wire-in transience for ALL elected offices.

No ancient, business-as usual, aisle-crossing, compromising crows like the useless (and harmful), Hatch who can roost comfortably for decades.

The Twister is because they are all squinting at the debate, not too far in the future.

The first thing out of Brian William’s mouth will be,

“If Obamacare is just a carbon copy of Romneycare, why are you against Obamacare?”

What will follow from there is some maladroit gobbledty-speak about the differences, when all anyone will remember will be the democrat-plants in the audience cheering loudly over his answer.

Everyone ind DC seems petrified of Gingrich, but they know Romney is DOA because of the fact he’s Obama-lite, except on defense, which isn’t the issue this election cycle.

Romney hasn’t said anything specific about what he’d do to get the economy going, so its all sort of academic.

The GOP-E thinks that in the general, it’ll come down to the economy and jobs. If he wins, its going to demoralize voters all the way down the ticket, and we may be lucky to hold on to the House, and not lose ground in the Senate.

In DC, it is ‘anybody but Gingrich’.
