Ann Coulter: ROMNEY CAMPAIGN DRAGGED DOWN BY BIG BOATLOAD OF DELEGATES (100's away, as is Gingrich)

ROMNEY CAMPAIGN DRAGGED DOWN BY BIG BOATLOAD OF DELEGATESRead More »


March 7, 2012

  Mitt Romney won more than twice as many delegates on Super Tuesday
as Newt Gingrich or Rick Santorum. The Non-Fox Media's take-away is that
Romney suffered a major setback Tuesday night.



     No matter what happens, Barack Obama's boosters in the NFM
portray it as a debilitating blow to Romney. On Nov. 7, The New York
Times' headline will be: "Romney ekes out narrow electoral victory,
leaving race uncertain."



     To explain the widening gulf in delegates won by Romney
compared to the others -- he now has more delegates than all other
candidates combined -- the media claim that a vote for any candidate
other than Romney is an explicit vote against Romney.



     Of course, even the NFM can't pretend Ron Paul's supporters
would pick Gingrich or Santorum, both big-government, career
politicians, as their second choice.



     But in what universe would the second choice of Santorum
supporters be a two-time adulterer on his third marriage, who lobbied
George W. Bush to support embryonic stem cell research?



     And are we to presume that voters who have no problem with
Gingrich's $1.6 million payoff from Freddie Mac would be morally
offended by Romney's hard-earned wealth? That voters willing to forgive a
man who called Paul Ryan's Social Security reform plan "right-wing
social engineering" could never trust Romney?



     Why isn't it possible that votes for Santorum are votes against Gingrich, and vice versa?



     The NFM doesn't explain. Reporting their hopes and dreams
rather than the facts, they simply assert that all votes for Santorum or
Gingrich are "anti-Romney" votes.



     It's not Republicans who are looking for the anti-Romney. It's Democrats.



     Obama is already spending millions of dollars on anti-Romney
ads. Obama's campaign adviser David Axelrod, is desperately tweeting
anti-Romney messages all day long. In open primaries in Michigan and
Ohio, Obama's Democratic supporters came out to vote for Santorum or
Gingrich. MSNBC hosts openly encourage Democrats to vote for Rick
Santorum.

She got Gingrich's strategy down:
Reagan beat the odds and took out an incumbent by waging a charm campaign to win over independents, moderates and undecideds.

Ann, you've become delusional. It's time to go somewhere and rest.

The popular vote of Rick + Newt now equals 3,784,760 compared to Romney’s 3,194,834. You can toss in another 900,099 for Ron Paul. Romney’s got a little over a third of the popular vote. So, yeah, Ann, it is conservatives who are looking for a non-Romney.

Ineligible RINO Backstabber:
"Thank Me!!!!!! When I cheat, I win."


FLASHBACK:

The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided …to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.

Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008

Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers…
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide…
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."


The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"I’m told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palin’s people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romney’s former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
… aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.


"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off ….hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."


"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the “Diva” leak was Nicolle Wallace’s husband."


"Peeking Out From the McCain Wreckage: Mitt Romney"

"Someone's got to say it: IS MITT ROMNEY RESPONSIBLE FOR OBAMA'S VICTORY?"

"Vanity: Team Romney Sabotaged Palin and Continuing to Do So?"

"Romney Supporters Trashing Palin"

"Romney advisors sniping at Palin?"

Gotta love ‘em.

The Romney people are always using faulty math to fool themselves. Can’t fool us.

Great post, thanks!

Romney, McCain and the GOP sycophants didn’t want a republican to win in 2008 as “Mint” (I’m gonna buy the election this time) Romney got Huckabeed.

The older I get the more I realize that the Reagan Administration was an anomaly and not the norm in Republican Politics.

Great research. With all the money Romney has spent, about the only thing he’s gotten out of it is a bunch of pissed off
Gingrich and Santorum voters. The same voters he will HAVE to have if he has any chance of beating Zero.

You are absolutely right. Reagan winning the nomination was an exception to the rule that the establishment candidate must win.

However, I think he did benefit from the “next in line” rule. But he still had to fight off the establishment.

To be nominated as a Republican, one must be either the “establishment guy”, or be the person whose turn it is.

Bob Dole was both the establishment guy and next in line. Ditto George W. Bush.

John McCain was not the establishment guy in 2008 (Rudy Giuliani was), but he was next in line.

In 2012, Romney is both. It is difficult for an insurgent candidate to win the GOP nomination. Goldwater is probably the last to do in 1964, when he beat the establishment candidate, Rockefeller.

Reagan came close as an insurgent in ‘76 against a sitting President.

The 1980 election was unique in many way. I fear that Americans are too stupid today to realize just how bad things are.

Is Ann on medication? She really hasn't thought very clearly in months.

Bless her heart. Hope she'll be better soon. (do I need to add: /sarc?)

From the photo it looks like Miss Coulter is enjoying herself at some sort of cocktail party, apparently the center of attention and basking in the approval and acceptance of (what I can only imagine are) National Review, Weekly Standard and Wall Street Journal-types.
We should be happy for her, considering everything that she has done in increasing our consciousness over the last ten or so years, until recently of course. Once on the outside looking in, now she is an insider.
Of course, by befriending and adhering to an insectile, turd creature: Bill Maher, and supporting a reptile like Romney, she has made it clear that she is no longer a friend of conservatives.

In sum it’s really not much different from the Crips and the Bloods: You choose your side, you live with the consequences. Just re-stating what we already know as we separate from the sheep from the goats in the months to come. Death to the moderate GOP.

I’ve defended Ann Coulter in the past in spite of her very mild endorsement of Romney because she’s not the first person to make a mistake. But her attacks on Santorum and Gingrich are not helpful at all and if Obama is reelected (ugh), it’ll be harder to forgive and forget.

Reagan was next in line. He lost to Ford in 1976.

She called Newt “crazy” on “Redeye” one night. She and Beck ae out to destroy him as a person. Not only that, but they are doing so with glee. I consider it pure evil myself.

Back in ‘06 when Jeffers Dodge was running for the 47th seat to the California Assembly, Ann Coulter helped him kick off his campaign in the lobby of a neat old hotel in Los Angeles.

A lot of FR members were there too, and I took a lot of pictures. One of which is the one at the top of this thread.

We all had a great time!

Oh, and the GOP is in the process of committing political suicide. RIP GOP

This woman has completely and utterly lost it. The left all week has been trying to destroy the career of her friend, or supposed friend, Rush Limbaugh, and she writes yet again another article bowing to the Romney. I've had it with her, this is the last article I am ever reading from Ann Coulter.

Romney has gotten where he is now in this race thanks to money. Tons of it, relative to Gingrich and Santorum, but a drop in the bucket compared to what BHO will have available. Recently it’s been written that he has used up most of the funds already that he’d planned on using through (at least) the nomination and is now fundraising for donations from small donors.

Romney, if he gets the nomination, may ultimately win the votes of most Gingrich/Santorum voters, but he won’t get them out as on-the-ground volunteers that are vital to any campaign. I don’t see hordes of folks willing to walk door to door to speak with voters or for lit drops, or standing outside polls, encouraging voters to go R, or working the phones, and all the other low level work that is done. I can see are the young Mormon missionaries taking up the slack. But that’s not the same as people in your own neighborhood doing the volunteer work.

One has to wonder if Romney’s ‘celebrity’ backers, Ann, the Buchanans, the Macks, et al have ever volunteered their time to work a campaign, or do they think it’s all done by [paid] consultants?
