Are conservatives losing their minds?
World Net Daily ^ | 2/15/2012 | Robert Ringer

Posted on 02/16/2012 5:55:35 AM PST by Old Teufel Hunden

Otherwise dependable conservatives appear to be losing their minds in their zeal to vanquish the media-created first family from the White House. Ann Coulter, a one-time paragon of hard-core conservatism, has confirmed a growing suspicion that she possesses a latent liberal streak. By endorsing and singing the praises of Mitt-the-Flip, her open affection for left-wing nasties like Joy Behar and Bill Maher no longer appear to be anomalies.

Not one to leave bad enough alone, Coulter did a spin piece Feb. 1 on Romney’s Obamacare model titled “3 cheers for Romneycare,” which ended with, “Romney is the most electable candidate not only because it will be nearly impossible for the media to demonize this self-made Mormon square, devoted to his wife and church, but precisely because he is the most conservative candidate.”

It was something one might have expected to be written by that other blonde – the one with the bird’s nest on her head – Debbie WassHerName. The column was so far out on the left limb of the political tree that it must have brought tears of joy to Michael Moore.

Coulter’s statement that “No one is claiming that the Constitution gives each person an unalienable right not to buy insurance” caused me to have an optical migraine. The Constitution doesn’t give people the right not to buy insurance? Huh?

I have to agree with this guy. I think Ann Coulter has lost her mind in her defense of Romney. It wasn't that long ago people thought that her and Rush should get together, have a baby and make the perfect conservative. What is going on with her. I was also extremely disappointed in Newt when he attacked Romney on the Bain Capital stuff and I think it backfired on Newt. Newt put me in the position of defending Romney. Something I loathed to do. All of this means that more and more it looks like we are going to have Mittens as our candidate. Arrrgggghhhhhh!!!!

Ann is just trying to support the most pro-homosexual of the Republican candidates. For rather obvious reasons.

It is simple, is it not? “Birds of a feather flock together” comes to mind and it certainly fits that the liberal democrat/rino Ann supports the libral/democrat rino Romney. And it also shows how that the conservatives must not elect either Romney the liberal obamacare supporter or Paul the antisemite bigot unless the GOP wants to be the slave of the left, which is their desire at this point.
I would rather support a third party conservative than a rino go along to get along liberal like Romney or antichrist man like Paul. Santorum is a conservative of moral values who would defend America from the enemy within, the democrat/communist party of those who hate God and family and country.
Conservatives must stand on morality or die the death of the wicked who pervert them.

To make the switch from “I think of Ann Coulter as a conservative” to “I think of Ann Coulter as a leftist” is very easy.

Simple—Coulter abandoned conservatism.

We know this can happen to anyone. Principles don’t change—people do.

Ever think were in this situation because there isn’t a single conservative in this race? Newt is unpopular and his losing in the primaries shows it. Romney is boring. Santorum is a nobody. Palin runs her mouth from the sidelines. There’s not a party unifier.

I can't stand this constant use of the word "gay" to represent these sexual deviants. They are HOMOSEXUALS, and since they're so damn proud of what they are, they shouldn't be ashamed to call themselves HOMOSEXUALS.

Yes, I think Coulter is a homosexual: her quick acceptance of homosexual approval from those so-called Republican homosexuals should be exhibit A.

I will never read any of her columns nor buy her books again. She can giggle away any reference to her being a homosexual, but I'm convinced.

And her love affair with this central-casting, devoutly democratic Mittens Romney is absolutely disgusting. With what should be a very easy removal of this Kenyan-born illegal alien from our White House, it looks like there's a quite concerted attack from the dummycrats and the RINOs to keep the Kenyan-Commie in for four more years and the eventual and total destruction of America as we know it. Ann Coulter can go to HELL!

The bane capital attack actually did massive damage to Romney that is still being felt to this day and help Newt win a crushing victory in South Carolina.

I don’t think it was a mistake to point out how easily Mitt would be demonized in the general election from an attack from the left. Mitt’s whole justification for being the nominee is that he would be the most electable against Obama. If there is an attack that can be made easily from the left, right, or center that WILL be made ... don’t you want to know about that now and not after we have nominated him?

"don’t you want to know about that now and not after we have nominated him?"

By a supposed "conservative" doing the attack, it legitimizes the attack. We already knew that if Mittens was the nominee this was coming. Easily predictable. If Mittens does happen to be our nominee, now Obama will be running commercials not with him saying these things. But with Newt Gingrich talking about how evil Bain Capital is. Big difference and lends credibility to the attack. Look, I hope and pray that Mittens isn't the nominee, but if he is. He'll be ten times better than Obama as President. Just on judges alone he will be.

First of all, I got sick and tired of hearing people yell about Newt and Perry “attacking capitalism.” They did no such thing. They pointed out questionable business practices, and if one can’t do that without being called anti-capitalist, we have a problem.

As for Ann, she is 50 years old and single, with a history of dating liberal men. And she is increasingly shrill and hysterical. She needs a husband to anchor her sticklike butt down.

I have another theory, maybe Ann has the hots for Romney and thinks supporting him is a way of getting a date. Yo, Ann, the dude is married, give it up.

Thank you. I refuse to use the word "gay." Homo or sodomite works fine for me. They've co-opted "gay" in order to camouflage the disgusting reality of what they practice. I prefer to have it all out there in the open.

I think that the most logical explanation is that Coulter was never a conservative. She is a talented bomb-thrower who found that she could get a lot of attention from conservatives by articulating their views. She got to appear in a lot of conservative forums, and she sold many books to conservatives.

Apparently, having long blond hair made her attractive to a lot of conservative men. (I swear I think I could post a photo of my dog wearing a long blond wig and get many of the men here to post “not guilty”.) This woman has always found her physically odd and mannish looking with annoying gestures such as rolling her eyes too much and stuffing her hair behind her ears while she talks. (Last time I saw her on TV, however, I noted that she must have been getting some coaching for these quirks.)

In summary, Coulter is an entertainer and an attention addict who will represent whatever views will get people to listen to her.

“No one is claiming that the Constitution gives each person an unalienable right not to buy insurance”

I’ve found her tiresome lately. Not because supporting Mitt is proof of irreversible corruption. Choices are limited, and comparing Mitt/Newt/Santorum is six of one, half a dozen of the middle, and two trios of the latter. No, it’s because I might as well not bother listening, since I know from now to November will be the yawny establishment party line.

Defending Romneycare, though, if that’s what she’s doing, is something else. I dare call it shark jumping.

You couldn't be more wrong.

Furthermore, if you want to support MItt, drop the "if he is the nominee" nonsense and just come out and support him.

His record says otherwise:

“Many of Romney’s appointments were not only liberal, not only Democrats, but were radical counter-constitutionalists. How on earth can we expect that, as president, he would be any different?” Barber asked rhetorically.

“Actions speak louder than words, and Mitt Romney’s actions as governor scream from the rooftops that he cannot be trusted with this most important of presidential responsibilities.”

Barber cites two specific examples of Romney’s radical appointments.

“As governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney not only failed in this regard, he appointed a number of very liberal, if not radical, ‘living, breathing’-minded judges to the bench,” Barber said.

“Two that come to mind were extreme homosexualists Marianne C. Hinkle and Stephen Abany,” he said. “They both had a long history of pro-gay activism, yet Romney didn’t hesitate to put them on the bench.”

“These are people who outrageously believe the postmodern notion that newfangled ‘gay rights’ trump our constitutionally guaranteed First Amendment rights,” he said.

I'm 100% for Rick Santorum, but I can live with Newt. I think Newt's personnel baggage would hamper him in the extreme if he were the nominee but I could still support him whole heartedly. Please don't put words in my mouth. Mitt is my third choice and I definitely don't want him to be the nominee. But he's still 1000 times better than Obama and he would still put up judges more conservative than Obama would. At least with Mittens we have some hope of a conservative judge being appointed. With Obama, there would be no hope.

All Newt did was question if Romney mismanaged the money of some companies which went into bankruptcy. If somebody was running a bunch of companies, and something like 40% of them went bankrupt, as they did at Bain in the ‘90s, don’t you think it’s worth questioning Romney’s claims that he was a good businessman and a job creator? The fact is Romney’s business model was to leverage companies heavily and take profits out of those companies even when they were struggling to turn themselves around, which made them more likely to go into bankruptcy, which they often did.

It has nothing to do with Christie. Coulter endorsed Romney in 2008 also. Drudge was also in Romney’s back pocket during the 2008 campaign. Their scheme seemed to have worked a LOT better back then. They had conservatives convinced that Huckabee was a liberal the same way they tried to with Newt.

There is something wrong with Ann, something is very amiss. She’s too young to be menopausal, isn’t she?
Whatever the problem is, I hope she seeks help and guidance. Prayer would be a good start.
She was once a very reliable, gutsy conservative. Now she’s endorsing Mittens?
Something is very wrong. I would be surprised if it’s strictly about the activist homosexual agenda.

Here is the question the Wall Street Journal asked of Romney in a debate. Note the WSJ is not a liberal rag. Romney had a lame dodgy answer for the question and didn’t address it substantively. And below this is a quote from Romney addressing this same issue in a NY Times interview 4 years ago. The private equity leveraged buyout model has been analyzed and many think it damages companies precisely because it drives them into debt.

http://foxnewsinsider.com/2012/01/17/transcript-fox-news-channel-wall-street-journal-debate-in-south-carolina/

SEIB: Governor Romney, let’s look a little deeper at the business record that you’re talking about. In a nutshell, what your opponents here are saying is that Bain Capital and other private equity firms, buy companies, load them up with debt, take the profits and then head for the exits. Let’s look at another example and allow you to respond through that. America Pad and Paper is a company that Bain Capital bought with $5 million, took on more debt to expand, couldn’t pay back the loans, went bankrupt and several hundred people lost their jobs.
Bain Capital though, took $100 million in profits and fees. Does that show a flaw in the Bain Capital model? Or is that just the rough and tumble of America capitalism?

http://www.nytimes.com/2007/06/04/us/politics/04bain.html?pagewanted=all

Both Dade Behring and KB Toys soon suffered dips in their business. Unable to meet the burden of their debts, each filed for bankruptcy and laid off thousands of workers. Bain Capital spokesmen have said the company did nothing improper.

Mr. Romney, who remains an investor in Bain Capital, said he had not been involved in those decisions but acknowledged that such payments became part of the buyout business “very early on.”

“It is one thing that if I had a chance to go back I would be more sensitive to,” Mr. Romney said. “It is always a balance. Great care has got to be taken not to take a dividend or a distribution from a company that puts that company at risk.” He added that taking a big payment from a company that later failed “would make me sick, sick at heart.”

If I had to choose between Mittnes and McManiac, I would choose Mittens, And, as a matter of fact, I did - in 2008.

But by then Huckabee had dropped out by the time my state’s primary came around. Otherwise I would have voted for Huckabee.

I like Huckabee. I think he is a good, strong Christian conservative and would make a great President. I enjoy watching his program on TV.

For some incomprehensible reason some conservatives - probably mainly some of my northeastern conservatives, don’t like him.

I don’t get it.

Its unfortunate Huckabee didn’t run this time around. He would have cleaned Mittens’ clock.

Ann's just using the O'Reilly tactic. She played the conservative advocate for a while and it gained her fame, more importantly, she sold her books\speaking engagements.

When the money started rolling in, like most, she decided to look for bigger markets to sell her product....by "sliding" politically(like O'Reilly)...she figures to do that.

Once you gain a certain amount of fame/fortune principles/priorities tend to change(I guess)...it's all about doing what it takes to remain with the "elite" crowd.

Like Michael Corleone said...."It's not personal. It's business."
