Video: Ann Coulter And Bill Maher Duke It Out Over Racism, Obama, And Romney Flip-Flopping
Mediaite ^ | 10/13/2012 | Josh Feldman

Posted on 10/14/2012 7:45:09 AM PDT by SeekAndFind

Ann Coulter sat down with Bill Maher tonight for a lengthy conversation that touched on everything from racism in America to how much Mitt Romney flip-flops. Coulter contended that “real racism,” for the most part, no longer exists in the United States. Maher challenged her on how she could think that actual racism is gone and has been replaced by liberal racial demagoguery.

Coulter mockingly asked where all the racists are that liberals keep talking about. Maher brought up a 2008 poll finding in one swing state that a surprising number of Americans are not ready for a black president, and asked Coulter how she could possibly believe that racism is mostly gone. She pointed to polls that found many Americans are not ready for a Mormon president either.

Maher also challenged Coulter’s belief that Obama is the “most liberal” politician to run on a major party ticket for the presidency. Coulter pointed to the Affordable Care Act, which she deemed the “most liberal thing that has been done by any president,” even including Social Security. But back on the racism front, Coulter charged that “liberals are very racist,” citing attacks from the left on Clarence Thomas, Mia Love, and Stacey Dash.

Maher and Coulter went back and forth for a bit on how the intelligence of the voting public and Coulter’s initial support of Chris Christie before Maher got to how Romney has changed drastically starting with his debate last week. Coulter stunned Maher by arguing that Romney “has flipped on one issue in his entire life,” referring to abortion. Maher argued that Romney has flipped on quite a bit, to which Coulter accused Maher of living in a bubble comprised entirely of MSNBC.

Asked where all the racists are that liberals keep talking about.
All she has to do is look at the white guilt media and hold up a mirror to Maher.

Ann Coulter......rather have her actively working on my side than working against me. Same for Debbie Schlussel.

Yeah, but Ann’s got a lot of baggage, like Bill Maher.
I think us ABOs are on board for Romney & Co., at least for another month or so. And a brief honeymoon.
And then it’s back to the old hammer-and-tongs!

geez would you people chillax on Ann Coulter?

You may not agree with her 100% but no one is perfect.

She is one of the most powerful conservative voices- and we should be happy to have her on our side.

I disagreed with her pick of Romney too- but I still want to marry her and bear her children.

Yep.

As soon as President Romney starts an LGBT dating service for all of his political appointees, he’ll face harsh criticism from his fair-weather friends on FR.

these two used to be lovers, and for a long time I might add. This is nothing more then her needing to get face time and play at being a conservative,which we know she isn’t.

For me, her credibility as a conservative voice evaporated when she wrote a column saluting socialized healthcare. And when it comes to her and Bill Maher “duking it out”, they probably went out for dinner afterward. Not so long ago, she defended Maher when he made some nasty comments about Rick Santorum’s child.

You meant you want her to bear your children, right? ;)
Better fatten her up a bit.....she’s probably too skinny to conceive.

What a small, sad intellectual universe one must live in when they reject all but those they deem ideologically pure enough.

I think Coulter has an amazingly sharp mind, which is like a filing-cabinet chock full of facts-and-figures, ready to be thrown out and counter arguments from the left.

But, with her over-the-top cheerleading of Chris Christie and Mitt Romney these past four years, I really no longer trust her very much. She’s much more in tune with the GOP-Establishment and the northeast Ivy League crowd than the true, grassroots Tea Party conservatives.

“Maher brought up a 2008 poll finding in one swing state that a surprising number of Americans are not ready for a black president,”

How much of that is “there’s nobody runnning who is black and qualified, so I guess we’re not ready” rather than real racism?

How could she say that with a straight face?

That's old and worn out - and hardly a conservative comment - it's actually dumb!

She'd rather you buy her books than her 50+ year old bones.

That's for show, afterwards her and Maher were giggling about it over a bottle! Notice she has more hair than dress, so she was ready for 'afterwards'.

Actually he was sort of protective of her with his nasty audience. Usually he encourages them to boo and shout down conservatives but this time he kept hushing them. Maybe her actual words got through to some of them.

oh all right- she’s DEAD TO ME NOW!

And I see your point- no one is allowed to be less than 100% in agreement with you...

so..

Remember Ronald Reagan? He once SIGNED AN ABORTION BILL! If he wasn’t already dead, he’d be dead to me now.

there is a list around here somewhere...

It is not my point - keep focused - You are the one that brought up 100% not me - it's a dumb statement used by those who are pushing 'junk' and when that doesn't work, they bring up Reagan. You are right on schedule. HINT: YOU FAIL!

We don't want the little political whore - so get over it! She's all yours - even that doesn't make you happy!

you are the ASS who started with the “YOU FAIL” and other stupid immature comments

You can disagree politely without making the stupid insulting comments, can’t you? Or don’t you know how to do that? Did your parents teach you any manners?

You are not an ASS because I am unhappy - I was not unhappy until you started with the name calling.

Yes I did say 'you fail' and you immediately followed it up with NAME CALLING - stop being a jerkwad....go scream at some liberals - you ass

You can disagree politely without making the stupid insulting comments, can’t you?

I did disagree as did others and you immediately followed up w/your rants and name calling! KEEP FOCUSED and HONEST!

Or don’t you know how to do that? Did your parents teach you any manners?

Your posts show you are projecting. Get your oil checked and learn how to post w/o name calling!

I was not unhappy until you started with the name calling.

You started with the name calling right after I said 'You Fail' and you haven't stop! Strive for honesty.

You are the one who was ill-mannered
