Skip to comments.Coulter: Romney should fire his spokesman for that RomneyCare response to the steelworker ad
Posted on 08/09/2012 8:58:25 AM PDT by chessplayer
Via Mediaite, inquiring conservatives on Twitter are asking: Er, isnt Ann Coulter herself famously a big fan of RomneyCare?
Answer: Yeah, but Im not sure its Andrea Sauls mention of RomneyCare thats really bugging her. Mediaites transcript:
Her response was not that it was despicable, not that Bain that Romney had left Bain five years earlier or the woman died five years after the plant closed and didnt even get her insurance from her husband, her response was, Well, if she had lived in Massachusetts with Mitt Romneys health care plan, she would have had health insurance. Anyone who donates to Mitt Romney, and I mean the big donors, ought to say if Andrea Saul isnt fired and off the campaign tomorrow, they are not giving another dime, because it is not worth fighting for this man if this is the kind of spokesman he has
Theres no point in you doing your show, theres no point in going to the convention and pushing for this man if hes employing morons like this. This ad is the turning point and she has nearly snatched victory from the jaws of defeat! She should be off the campaign.
I think shes irritated mainly because Saul is playing Obamas game by treating the steelworker ad as legitimate. You dont respond to a smear like that by addressing it on the merits; you respond by explaining why its a smear and how it reveals just what a fraud the Hopenchange aura is. Its an opportunity to attack with righteous fury, and somehow Saul blew it by stepping on her own message with the health-care aside.
The way to respond to it also isn’t to pimp the progenitor of Obamacare. Now we know Mittens still loves himself some individual mandates.
The problem with the response is that it unnecessarily poops on conservatives AGAIN. As Rush said she ripped off the scab.
Why would we expect anything different. Romney’s never apologized for Romneycare. He’s defended it. Romney has tried to distinquish Romneycare from Obamacare on minute differences.
You (Coulter and Others) rooted for and nominated a liberal as the GOP nominee. Now you want his staff to respond with less liberal responses.
Why? To maintain the illusion of conservativeness until it can be Etch a Sketched after the election?
She got her wish now she has sour grapes. We all knew how he would handle these things, yet she was to blind to see...
Personally, I’m ABO and will be voting. That said, Ann gave him her support so now she cab eat his “weak responses.” Moderates always are weak with their responses. If we had a Conservative in this race, the response would carr strength and would be winning over millions of Americans.
Her “surprise” is just a reminder as to why I was so dissapponted in her and will not bother buying any more of her material.
That shemale wanted RINO romney , now she/he got him.
Wait till the Obama Team start talking about the woman who died in France ...
We Don’t need to fire Romney’s people, we need to fire Romney.
I wish there were some way to do it,but I fear it is too late.
I was all for Gingrich, but Romney tore him apart, too bad he isn’t fighting Obama as hard as he fought Gingrich.
Re: Have to agree with Coulter. obama accuses Romney of murder, and thats the best response the Romney campaign can come up with? Wow.
Like I have previously written this is a classic example of bringing a knife to a gunfight.......
They can’t fire her: they think it was a terrific response.
Morons. Just morons.
If this babe was the one I heard yesterday she should be fired. Bumbling and stuttering and sounded juvenile. I heard her, didn’t see her but I was embarrassed.
Stay home, vote third party or vote Obama... any one of those will help Obama... You don’t gotta like Romney or his idiotic spokeswoman... just go vote obama out of office...
Se should have ordered more Botox and that great shade of cause-Im-worth-it L'Oreal..
She's got to go play with her horsie instead of lookng after her husband...
Now look at me...
I look a fright..
and nobody turned up..
I pay for the biggest stadium in the country...
and bumpkis..NOBODY TURNS UP..
I'm standing here all alone with nothing but a silly grin on my face..
I’m with ya on ABO but I’m not relishing all the crap I have to take from all the Romney boot lickers .....(::)
made me laugh... good one... just so you know, I anit happy about what I gotta do, but I gotta do it. Also, in my state primary (which was a total farce) I voted for Rick and he did win MO... had nothing to do with helping Romney... great pic of granny by the way...
