Skip to comments.Coulter: Chris Christie's 'Dead to Me'
Posted on 06/28/2013 8:10:08 AM PDT by Rockitz
Ann Coulter, who had been one of Gov. Chris Christie's biggest cheerleaders, is a fan no more. She tweeted on Thursday that Christie is "dead" to her after Sen. Jeffrey Chiesa (R-NJ), the Senator whom Christie appointed after the death of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ), voted to end debate on the Immigration Reform Bill.

Why? We still can’t trust her. Now more than ever. Situational ethics seem her specialty now. This proved it.
Couple thoughts: First, we all liked Christie, at least his TONE, for a while. And a tone of attack is very important, as are the correct principles. Second, Ann stayed on that train way way way too long. This will be her Rubio/immigration reform albatross. It will take a while for folks to forgive and forget. And third, don’t you know, Freepers are perfect and have never made a mistake, and be damned if they’ll accept a mistake from any pundit, elected official, candidate ever. GET WITH THE FR PROGRAM!!!
Welcome back, Ann.
I knew she’d figure it out eventually.
It’s about time she is seeing Christie for what he is — an opportunist!!!
I still enjoy reading her stuff when she's right, though.
Has she fallen out of love with Romney yet?
Let me summarize...
Romney is Satan
Romney is out best option
Christie is wonderful
Christie is dead to me.
How about RINO-ubio, Ann?
True, but he’s pulled NJ out of the Rat abyss it was in using some conservative principles and I had to applaud him for that.
Yes. I agree. She spent two cycles pining for Romney, with a brief romance with Christie. Maybe she saw what happens when we nominate a squishy moderate and rethought her position. Let’s hope.
What I don’t get is that we all saw what was coming with Romney and with Christie. I didn’t expect Christie to do the total face plant he has managed during Sandy and since, but I did start to get suspect of his national political creds awhile ago. I still like the guy, and think he’s good for NJ, but he’s in no way someone I want to see on a national ticket...at least at the top.
Me thinks some ones book sales may be slipping.....
I’ve never liked Christie. One look at his stance on RKBA told me everything I needed to know about him.
When it comes to RKBA, I make Ted Nugent look “middle of the road”.
How a politician feels about us exercising that one, basic, fundamental HUMAN Right tells you almost everything you need to know about them and what they would do TO you given political power.
Her book sales must be way down. Regardless, she’s already done to much damage to the Conservative cause by backstabbing Sarah Palin and promoting both Christie and Romney. She burned her bridges a long time ago, and there’s no rebuilding them.
Add Marco Rubio, Lindsay Graham and the rest of the RINO vermin in the Senate and House including Boner whose out looking for his gonads, IMO.
One thing holds true. If we keep supporting lesser evils, we get more evil. Even the most brain dead RINO supporter out there should understand simple cause and effect with so many recent examples to go by.
If Ann wants to return to conservatism, great. But never forget she will turn on a dime as her history proves time and again.
The lesson here is do not jump on the bandwagon. At first Christie was the man beating on the public employee Union thugs. This is what we need in liberal NE. But he is not what the entire country needs.
Sorry ‘bout that, Ann. Love hurts, especially if you try it with a progressive. Better luck next time.
“I always knew Ann would turn around on Christie. Heck, I even liked the guy for a while”...yep, and Marco the traiter too!
VERY well said.
I LOVED Christie for a while; then I saw what we now all see.
Ann stayed on the wagon too long, true, but, as you say, we all make mistakes.
I hear ya. Pragmatism and conservative incrementalism have no place here- all conservative principles, all the time. ;o)
Ann Coulter was dead to me when she suppported Romneycare
Hey, get it right! Ann’s the turncoat. Her likes are Romney, Christie. You still need to be smacked around some more - being a slow leader is not a conservative trait.
Ann is an entrepreneur, she sees the winds shifting and is adapting to suit the market.
That is the problem with jumping on political bandwagons before vetting the potential candidates.
Look at the FR threads from January through April of 2012. Many got splinters and strains from jumping from one derailed bandwagon to the next.
Similar with 2008, especially with the Thompson-ites — who didn’t even bother to look at some of his Senate accomplishments — such as, the original campaign finance reform bill — known then as Thompson-McCain-Feingold.
I am in a late primary state, so I have no need to jump on any bandwagon. Both in 2008 and 2012 the GOP nominee was decided weeks before my state primary, thus making the process irrelevant. That did give me the opportunity to throw mud at all of them and laugh as bandwagon after bandwagon derailed. Many times, I would ask: Is THIS the best the GOP can find?
Maybe, the GOP eventually will try electing statesmen rather than professional politicians. There is a big difference.
That I can totally agree with. One cannot be conservative while compromising one’s principles. Does-not-compute.
She liked Romney before she liked Christie. So it’s ‘not a mistake’.
She may have burned her bridges a long time ago but her bridge on Fox News is still intact.
I like Christie...as the governor of New Jersey. Nothing surprise me anymore, though. I’m waiting for Hitlery to run..and pick Christie as a running mate. Heck, nothing’s impossible anymore..especially when Soros’ money is throwing money at both of them.
They ALL are RINOs in one way or another. Its a one party system with two party names.
And don’t forget her trashing of ‘birthers’. And she is a constitutional lawyer? She just wants a broad spectrum for her book sales.
“Sorry, I just made a mistake” doesn’t cut it. It was OBVIOUS what Mitt Romney was. He gave us the first mandated gay marriage in the country. He gave us Romneycare, the model for Obamacare. He “saved” the Olympics by arranging a huge federal subsidy. He pushed through tax-funded abortions and sex change operations. And on and on. All this long before Ann supported him for President.
Same with Christie. It was obvious what he was long before Ann supported him. No surprise there, if you took the trouble of actually looking at what he DID.
And Ann is not dumb. She is very sharp. She must have known exactly what she was doing.
I feel conflicted about this, because she was a long-time friend of FR, and because she IS smart and writes terrific stuff. But, regrettably, she jumped the shark, presumably because she mistakenly saw some advantage in backing those guys. Maybe just hoping to get on board the winning train with Karl Rove and company.
Ann, dear, I really like you and what you stand for. However, you seem to have the batting average of George Castanza... All your lovers seem to go to bat for the other team (his turned into the ‘gay’ crowd if you remember)
Romney, Christie, Rubio...That’s a count of three strikes In baseball you would be out.
To be honest it’s not really Ann’s fault. I don’t see anyone in the GOP worth going to the walls for at this point. Not only are there no real leaders - there’s not a statesman among them. Same goes for the dems.
Excuses are not answers. It IS her fault. She is an adult that made a conscious decision to repeatedly back libs.
Ann, I hate to tell you this, BUT I TOLD YOU SO!!!!!!
He’s a big fat buffoon whose only goal is his own political advancement.
If you’re looking for core political principles in Chris Christie, I suggest you check out Marcus Licinius Crassus, Gnaeus Pompeius Magnus, Julius Caesar, Augustus Caesar, Mark Anthony or Marcus Lepidus for an sample of of what his are.
With Christie its all about personal power, what will get Christie in the Oval Office.
That’s it in a nutshell.
Twice for Romney - so that’s 4 strikes out.
You apparently missed the smilie emoticon at the end of my post.
If you want to change hearts and minds, an incremental approach is appropriate. If you want to continue to alienate and forever lose those who might be evolving in their political perspectives, keep using that fire hose approach. Be sure and let me know how that works out for you.
You don't have to trust her. She's not running for office. She's just a talking head/author. Sometimes she's right; sometimes not so much. With her acerbic wit, she can sometimes make a point better than anyone else.
oh, she is deceived on one major point....the notion that a blue state Republican is how we win.....in fact started on an article about how she is decieved on that. And that is a mistake. She hates liberals as much as anyone and done more to combat them and expose them than almost anyone.
but she does have this flaw....agreed....
So now her new intellectual prowess is backfilling?
And your fault and my fault. We keep voting for them and reacting to divisive headlines, which only encourages the bastards on both sides.
She is good friends with Bill Maher - all I need to know about her.
Sorry. When I see logical arguments written down I assume the poster is someone with a clue.
Keep voting for the Romneys and Rubios of the world.
Mitt Romney and Chris Christie, this woman is a train wreck.
Ironic, the only 3 Republicans to understand the proper tone in the past couple years - Newt, Christie and Trump - are one inconsistent genius and two moderate libs. That tone is damned important.....as these three showed at various times since 2009.
I stopped doing it in 2008. I learned. I was wrong to support our own destruction by making excuses. More need learn that lesson.
