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.
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?
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.
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!
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.
“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.
