Her raison d’être;
a socialist is better than the present neo-marxist you silly “ right-wingers “
THAT is neither compelling nor a winning argument. It`s a coward`s white flag of acceptance of Statism.
Are you there? What did she say?
I hear her and she thinks what she is saying makes a difference but her credibility is in the toilet supporting Romney. Let her keep digging a hole for herself.
Yeah, can someone who is there give us some updates on Ann’s rants?
Ann is great, when she’s a conservative, but she’s just not really that conservative. What she is, is a controversial political author, who sells books by attacking the left. She’s good at it and there just isn’t anyone else doing that with humor and a whole lot of sarcasm. Her looks don’t hurt anything, either.
If you think about it, Ann has always written and talked more about the foibles of the left, than she has the strengths of conservatism.
Watching it on CPan 350 on Direct TV....she said Newt was not a conservative , Santorum doesn’t explain himself well, and Romney is our “hope” Romneycare is constitutional and Obamacare is unconstitutional....Romney coming on at 12:55... she’s not hiding her love of Romney.
Yes, speakers can and do endorse their candidates of choice.
She is getting a very chilly reception.
She just earned her first real applause, because she is talking about Obamacare versus the Catholic Church.
She’s shrieking about how Romney can win and Newt can’t, among other things.
To sum up her nonsense,
she is a political and ideological schizophrenic .
What a change in a month and a half Mitt’s money can buy anybody.
Um, she just got a standing ovation...help!

She just claimed obamacare is NOT Romneycare.
She has lost her mind.
To put it simply, Ann Coulter is NUTS!
What is the audience reaction?
I was hoping she’d get booed.
I suppose there are a lot of Romney-bots in the audience.
I knew Palin was speaking tomorrow, but Daniel Hannan, as well..? Bonus.
Well, whatever you think about her Romney fling, that’s our Annie.
Full steam ahead.
I muted my computer as soon as I saw her menacing face @ CPAC.
She no longer exists.
Ann is probably being well paid as a member of Romney’s campaign staff. She is probably been promised the position of Press Secretary or advisor. Another lucrative and celebrity position.
Mitt Romney at 12:55? I hope people decide to not rush back from lunch. It would be kind of fun to hear about him talking to a depleted audience.
She must be doing lines of some serious powder.
I can only expect the people there either were dead silent or jeered he out of the room.
As the years went by, the question became, "Why would a person who understood the threat from the Left and had studied the Founders' explanations of their Constitution not choose to share the Founding ideas, instead of just being a flamboyant and moneymaking critic of the Left?"
Guess we know the answer to that question now.
I changed the channel to the Home Shopping Network.
A state doing Romneycare (which I probably wouldn’t have liked if I lived in Mass, but that’s not the point) is not the same thing as the Federal govt doing Obamacare, so in that sense, she’s correct (if that’s what she said). And no, I am NOT a Romney supporter.
From a financial standpoint, Ann has screwed the pooch. By going mainstream, she has lost the audience that made her career. She better get a good job from Oromney.
Recently, I have hear Ann describe herself as an author. She said, “ I am an author, that’s what I do. I write books.”
It just hit me that she does the public appearance and media appearances to sell books.
As an author, I believe she is pretty mediocre. The one book of hers I bought was about 15-20% introduction, if that, and the rest was a compendium of prior columns...A particularly lazy author if you ask me. On relection the 20% of new material, while not column reprints was just the same stuff she hawked on the air while hawking her new book.
It is the only book I ever bought or will buy from her.
The majority of the people there make up the GOP establishment.
I wonder, what sort of a crowd did she draw? In 2008, she drew the biggest crowd of any speaker. The line to get into her presentation seemed to be about as long as a football field.
I am there. Listening to Romney now. Ann was missing the mark. After Santorum’s speech on “ no comprmising conservative principles” kinda hard to swallow ......
pick the guy that will win the independants.
He is saying everything we want to hear! Just wonder if its just that.
In other words, Annie kicked the bucket
Well, Romney paid people to carry his signs and wear his t-shirts, so I’m sure he would pay people to stack the audience. Unless there’s an LDS convention next door, of course.
Ann, I disagree with you on this issue. Forsake Romney. After the election I’d forgive you for your support of him. In the meantime I’d bang you like a loose screen door in a hurricane if you’d acquiesce.
The election of Lincoln, and what it meant to the South, precipitated the FIRST US Civil War. Confirmation of a liberal majority in the Supreme Court could well do the same.
Coulter’s salivating with “h-o-p-e” over Romney pretty much cements it for me that in 2008 she voted for Obama. There is no other conceivable explanation for her thinking than that she’s been a well-camoflaged globalist liberal all along.
That's gonna be a good trick.
"If it (Obamacare) is not repealed in the next administration, thats it. It is here to stay. People start receiving their treats, Newt Gingrich will be denouncing plans to reform it as right-wing social engineering, and American begins its inexorable decline into Western Europe without the charming cafés and cobblestone streets.
So I ask you, CPACers, who are you willing to stake the future of this country on winning? Who is going to appeal to the most Independents? Because, if were betting the future of this country on Next Gingrich not being repellent to Independents, I want my money back. Im not taking that bet."
This might get be banned, but I agree with every word.
You may agree..but since when is it Coulter’s job to shill for Mittens at CPAC? and why would she leave Santorum out of her sights? She’s so stupid she doesn’t even know he is a contender.
Have a few more drinks, Annie.
NOW before you think what I just typed has anything to do with being against the 1% you could not be further from the truth. Independents are the most ‘sensitive’ bunch on earth and if the majority of the people they know are unemployed and the ‘you're fired’ bunch is the option to Obama they vote for Obama.
If you Republicans don’t trust or like Mitt Romney, I don’t know why you think we Independents will trust and like him.
One thing that is becoming very clear nationally, is the fact that his own party distrusts the man, and thinks of him as a sleazy phony, a fake of a man with no ideology or convictions, or character, simply a raw, unexplained obsession to be President of all of us, that is unlikely to endear him to the people who don’t fully trust the GOP anyway.
Her job is political and social commentary. That's what she was doing. She thinks Romney is the best of the field. I don't think that makes her a shill.
I'm not sure why she didn't choose to go after Santorum as she did Newt, but I doubt she's unaware of his recent successes.
