Skip to comments.Anne Coulter: 'Shysters' who attack 'establishment' GOP risk control of Senate
Posted on 02/20/2014 11:54:30 AM PST by SoConPubbie
On Sean Hannitys Fox News show on February 19, guest Anne Coulter and Hannity got into a heated discussion about the nature of the Tea Party on its fifth anniversary. While both are Tea Party supporters, Coulter differentiated between people in America who call themselves Tea Partiers [who] are fantastic and the con men and scamsters who trick good Americans into sending them money, claiming we are fighting for you and they arent fighting for you.
Basically anyone who claims to be going after establishment Republicans, the key word there is Republican, Coulter said. If we dont elect Republicans, I dont care which Republican, we will not repeal Obamacare. She continued, The only way to repeal Obamacare is to elect Republicans. It is not to be fighting against Republicans.
Coulter said that everyone has got to read Thomas Sowells column, Cruz Control, published on Feb. 18, in which the prominent conservative economist and author criticizes Ted Cruz for weakening the Republican Party in order to remake it as a more pure conservative party in the long term. Sowell argues that such a strategy may bring America past the point of no return with respect to both Obamacare and the larger erosion of personal freedoms. She also pointed out that groups that attack Republicans would face less media scrutiny than groups that attack Democrats.
. . . .
When Hannity asked why the Republicans could not force the issue on the Keystone pipeline, the debt ceiling, and a host of other issues, and implied that the GOP had given up the fight, Coulter replied, Fight to give them a majority then we will repeal Obamacare and have the keys to the pipeline.

Exactly what has McConnell done for the country over the last 30 years?
Coulter said. If we dont elect Republicans, I dont care which Republican, we will not repeal Obamacare.
DOES ANN FORGET THAT WHEN WE HAD CONTROL OF THE HOUSE AND SENATE THE REPUBLICANS WANTED TO PASS AMNESTY? AND IT TOOK GRASSROOTS SCREAMING CONSTANTLY TO KILL THE DAMN THING?
Ann Coulter is a GOP-E, Karl Rove tool.
She proved that when she endorsed Mitt Romney and lied about him being conservative.
When the voting starts the typists start defending the RINO’s.
She's got it exactly backwards!
"Establishment" GOP who attack conservatives and the Tea Party risk control of the Senate.
You got to elect the right Republicans.
Chuck Hagel, Lincoln Chafee , Susan Collins, Olympia Snowe, John McCain, Jim Jeffords etc. were elected as Republicans.-Tom
I read what Cruz told Rush about the Republicans in the Senate, and Coulter is dead wrong. This is crunch time for our republic if it is going to survive and boner and the turtle, et al, will only damage us further. It’s easier to win a battle when the lines are clear.
That said, GOP-e Republicans have weakened the brand. What Cruz and TeaPartiers are trying to do is to make it clear just what being a Republican means.
The #1 impediment to Conservative power is the GOPe / Democrat Lite rump of the party.
A complete Republican takeover of the Senate with the current “leadership” will not change Federal Spending one iota.
Ann, of course by this you mean Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn, with their "show votes", right? Senator Cruz is calling them out on it ...
I will tell you the single biggest surprise in arriving to the Senate is the defeatist attitude here. I mean, we dont even talk about how to win a fight. Theres no discussion. We talk about, Hey, lets get a show vote so we can go tell our constituents were doing something. But I promise you, Rush, if you had to sit through one Senate lunch, youd be in therapy for a month.
Many of these are my friends, but theyve been here a long time, and theyre beaten down, and they dont believe we can win. They dont believe it can happen, and the answer they say on every issue is, No, we cant do it. We cant do it.
And Washington, look, in both parties youve got entrenched politicians who have barely veiled contempt for the American people. I mean they think their voters are gullible rubes, and, you know, you give them a little show vote, you tell em, Hey, Im totally with you, then they go to Washington and they dont actually do what they say.
Remember, miss Romney yet? Obamacare would not be now.
I guess she’s thrown in her lot with RINOs for the recognition, show time, and interviews on TV over actually sticking with principles.
So what Ann? When the GOPe had the House, Senate and WH they MASSIVELY increased spending and the size of the federal government and LOST IT ALL in 2006 after trying Amnesty then also.
Wrongy-o, Ann. And Sowell is wrong, too. What people need to understand is that we have been betrayed. RINOs don’t feel defeated and they aren’t making mistakes. Their job is to enable and protect the Rats by spreading FUD and doing nothing when they should be fighting back and being proactive. They are very, very good at what they do - the Rats are utterly dependent on them. They are political saboteurs of the highest order.
Coulter had some good points until she fell on her face. It’s the kind of republican you elect, Ann, and you know that. Unite behind the good ones.
Stop socializing, Coulter, and start thinking.
Yes, like John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and John Cornyn. Those Republican stalwarts who did everything they could to stop Obamacare. Right, Ann?
Not falling for that BS, Ann. Establishment Republicans have routinely given lip-service to conservative principles to win the support of the real conservative faction that represents a MAJORITY of the party, then proceeded to act like Democrats. If they are going to act like Democrats, we may as well elect Democrats. So your name-calling is misplaced because REAL conservatives have not committed fraud against those who are supposed to be on our side.
Your “hostage” is a Democrat running as a Republican. If we stand pat and you “shoot” the hostage, we get a Democrat running as a Democrat. If we relent and you let the hostage go, we get a Democrat running as a Republican. For us, that is lose, lose, because we get more of the same old garbage, with the added problem that there is no progress in correcting the problem: leftist policies and out-of-control government. Establishment Republicans helped create this problem along with the Democrats, so it is beyond absurd to believe they will be part of the solution. Establishment Republicans need us REAL conservatives a lot more than we need them. With their record and operating principles, they need to be taking orders from us, not the way you want it, Ann.
Trey Gowdy is my hero...did you catch him on FOX the other night when he went off about the three ambasador appointments to Argentina, China, and Norway?
He called the apointees “the Three Stoges” and morons who didn’t even know where the countries were and what form of government they had. It was priceless and vintage Gowdy.
Whst is the benefit of having republicans in office if all they do is remain quiet or actually help the democrats?
Harpy Coulter showing her true colors again.
Sounds like one of her book signing tours.........
How so, considering that the Senate would have remained in the hands of the Democrats?
You're 100% correct!!
Ann is plain wrong!
There is now a group of people who really don't care what party you identify yourself with.
You are either going to shrink the size and influence of the Federal government or you are not.
NO democrats are on board for this plan, a minority of Republicans are on board. I'll vote for those Republicans only.
I TIVO every time I know he’s going to appear on a FOX NEWS show.
Dang, I missed that one!
Was it Greta’s?
Earth to Ann:
The GOP is no more! It has ceased to be! Its expired and gone to meet its maker! Its stiff! Bereft of life, it rests in peace! Its metabolic processes are now ‘istory! Its off the twig! Its kicked the bucket, its shuffled off its mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!! THIS IS AN EX-PARTY!!
Don’t let your brain rot...you’re becoming frightfully RINO.
It looks like Ann Coulter has jumped the shark again.
Sorry Ann, I was considering checking your next book out from the library, but now I’ll just pass.
She sure is awfully thin for having drunk all that Kool Aid.
RINO Ann and Tokyo Rove have done more harm to Conservatives than all the RATs combined. Memo to self: Next time she’s on radio, turn off station. Don’t have calbe anymore, so don’t have to watch her. And don’t buy her books.
Can we spell her first name
If we dont elect Republicans, I dont care which Republican, we will not repeal Obamacare. She continued, The only way to repeal Obamacare is to elect Republicans. It is not to be fighting against Republicans.
Yeah and Romney is the only candidate that can win! Oh wait....
Hey Ann, How are those republicans that hold the majority in the house doing with that repeal effort? How about the way the Senate Repubs stood with Ted to defend it?
Nope, electing “republicans” isn’t working and it won’t work. What we need is to clean the RINO’s out of the party and replace them with Conservatives. However, I wouldn’t expect an east coast elitist that likes to trash Tea Partiers to get the nuance.
Ann is sounding like an idiot. Dr. Sowell was measured, but tragically wrong. Ann is igniting cannon fire without realizing that the cannon is pointing in HER direction. Bob
Yeah, but Pirro was filling in for Greta. Trey was great, he always is.
We can elect more Tea Party members to office but if Democrats control the Senate and Presidency than Democrats will still run the show and turn our nation into a communist State.
If we elect more Tea Party members and if enough Republican moderates are elected to give us a majority in the Senate than the Rhino's “probably” will compromise with the Tea Party rather than radical liberals and we will begin the process of reversing the damage done by the communists.
The best chance to advance a conservative agenda is for every conservative to vote, and to vote for the most conservative choice in both the primary and general election, regardless of one’s opinion of the conservative purity of the choices offered.
Coulter/Sowell/ Jumping shark. Ted Cruz IS NOT the problem.
Three Blind Mice — Coulter — Rove — Hannity
So, you are saying to vote for the liberal republican if the only other choice is a liberal democrat.
“Coulter replied, Fight to give them a majority then we will repeal Obamacare and have the keys to the pipeline.
Sorry Ann. been there, done that.
Anne Coulter- Once a hero on FR, but long ago exposed.
“Exactly what has McConnell done for the country over the last 30 years?”
Ann needs to understand that the biggest shysters in the Republican party ARE the establishment Republicans.
If Romney had won, things would be vastly different in this country.
“Coulter said that everyone has got to read Thomas Sowells column, Cruz Control, published on Feb. 18, in which the prominent conservative economist and author criticizes Ted Cruz for weakening the Republican Party in order to remake it as a more pure conservative party in the long term. Sowell argues that such a strategy may bring America past the point of no return with respect to both Obamacare and the larger erosion of personal freedoms.”
The problem with this line of reasoning is that the status quo has brought us to the point where we got Obamacare and the current erosion of personal freedoms. If we don’t change the status quo, we can only expect more of the same.
Without a doubt. I had many problems with Romney, but he would have known how to get the economy up and running again.
Instead of a very successful businessman, we elected a petulant community activist.
Some RINOs need to be put down, even in the General, as an example for the others.
McConnell is No. 1 on that list.
