Skip to comments.Coulter on Palin: Let’s face it, she’s probably not electable
Posted on 09/06/2011 7:25:45 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Interesting segment, not because Coulters advancing any new criticisms of Palin but because shes willing to acknowledge openly the political risk on the right in criticizing her in the first place. According to Coulter, conservatives refuse to challenge Palin publicly because they dont want to deal with the hate mail from her supporters. Thats part of it, Im sure by now, all columnists and bloggers know what awaits after criticizing Palin or, say, Ron Paul but I suspect the better part is that theres simply no faster ticket to RINOville among some grassroots conservatives than uttering a discouraging word about Sarah. Its the ultimate one of us litmus test; not even a right-winger as stalwart and confrontational as Coulter is immune, apparently, from the inevitable establishment/RINO/sellout/Beltway cocktail party nonsense afterward. That said, Im curious why shes speaking up now. Has she reached the point where she just doesnt care anymore? Or is she so worried about the election that shes willing to lose some fans in the interest of maximizing the GOPs advantage?
Exit quotation: Shes become sort of the Obama of the tea party, shes just The One to a certain segment of right-wingers. Click the image to watch.
I agree. The thought of Romney as pres makes me wretch.
Perry and Romney are Rat installs, interesting you mention Duncan Hunter, he and Palin are ignored as aliens by Pravda.
Once again, Horseshit.
I agree, thanks for the reply.
It just is amazing to me that I have to even write such ridiculous things.
Common sense and morality were pretty much universal with most educated people decades ago.
People thinking moral relativism can work in societies have just to look at Europe....these societies are imploding—not reproducing except for the degenerates and immigrants. They teach children pornography at the age of four—with the “sex box”....and the last article I read said that 40% of Europeans are mentally ill. Their sex ed comes right out of the degenerate Herbert Marcuse’s mind and along with Political Correctness and Critical Theory (tear down societies) to destroy Western Civilization-—He wrote all about this....and people are adopting it.
Homosexual movement was founded by a Communist (Hays) who wants to destroy the US and make sex with boys legal—And the Unions—to create their socialist state. Insane that Ann Coulter backs cultural Marxism. and joined forces with a Marxist movement to destroy the family unit and Christianity and endorse sexual immorality for a civil society. Not possible.
You phony bastards! You know who you are
Oh Ann...You’re usually so spot on. In this case — you’re so CLUELESS.
“because she made an unforced decision to
abandoned the Governorship of Alaska”
I would argue that it was FORCED.
And you and the media make a big deal about her quitting as Gov. Doesn’t bother me one bit. She explained it. Over done with, gone.
“A sufficient number of voters
will intuitively follow that logic”
No they won’t. Nobody really cares about this. It’s a straw dog the media put up so they can attack it. Non issue to voters.
Your tagline tells me all I need to know about you.
Only when it’s unfounded. There is an agenda at play here to keep Palin out of the race. It’s a concerted effort by the establishment and it’s predictable. Honest criticism is one thing, but these people (like Coulter, Krathammer, Rove, O’Reilly, et al) are simply trying to put forth the narrative that Palin is a lightweight with zero chance of being elected. In fact, they know the opposite is true and they are scared witless about it! She is an existential threat, not only to the left, but also to establishment Republicans and they just can’t tolerate that!
Never mind what Coulter has said about Palin - the fact that she slobbers all over herself over that slob Christy tells me everything I need to know - that and the fact that she’s best buds with the human vermin (aka Bill Maher).
Sadly,Sarah became the “same old,same old” when she ran with McCain.
The ad hominem attacks by some Freepers on Ann prove her point.
Some of these statements/allegations are so childish that I suspect DemTrolls. OTOH, some people just can’t tolerate others who only agree with them 90% of the time. It’s 100% or nothing - just like the marxists.
I think the troll knew exactly why it used the word “artifice”.
Happy horseshit.... I always think of my Dad when I hear that.. he loved to point out the HHS people spewed.
Isn't this why we have primaries and the nomination process in the first place? So that many candidates can offer their vision, and the People can then decide?
What's with this sudden need to discourage certain GOP figures from even entering the race?
Can't Sarah at least enter the race if she so desires, and let the chips fall where they may?
And, if Sarah is so unelectable, then why is the LSM trying so hard to convince people of that? It just doesn't make sense unless they actually FEAR Sarah's electability, now does it?
Coulter looks foolish here, as do any other pundits who deign to tell us who should or shouldn't enter the GOP race. The premise simply doesn't stand up to scrutiny. Isn't that what the race is for in the first place: to see who really is electable?
What's with the desire to prematurely exclude someone who is a staunch Republican? Let the chips fall where they may.
I don't get it and I've had enough of being told who's electable or not. I mean, I despise Romney, but I'm not about to tell people he shouldn't even bother to try for the nomination.
The more, the merrier, and why the heck not?
Does your wife eat meat or fish? Does she wear leather or fur?
I was a kid, but remember that.
Another troll spews.
That book was a collection of her best, from her columns and TV appearances, and was meant to draw in people who were not conservatives. We had seen it all before, they hadn’t. It was an editing marvel, and the perfect gift for someone on the borderline.
Romney will get hit over the head as easily by his MassCare (which became ObamaCare) like hitting a bum with a dead fish and stealing his shopping cart. The Left wants him to run, too.
Look, America. If it came down to a vote between Obama and Palin, what would you do? (The Left already knows the answer, hence their attacks on the Tea Party). "Take the son-of-a-bitches out", "tell them to go straight to Hell", "barbarians at the gate", etc. What more evidence do you need to understand that a sizable group in this country hates your guts? (these comments are not directed to you CyberAnt).
To the many geniuses on this thread, has it ever occurred to you that the TEA Party IS the Third Party, yet? What they're trying to accomplish is bringing on-board the so-called conservative Republicans who, 'till now, have been all too willing to work with communists who now call themselves 'progressives'. No matter the label, negotiating with them weakens America as it was founded.
Our job, this next election, is to defeat these bastards once-and-for-all. Your children and grandchildren are counting on you to do the right thing. Shirk this responsibility at your own risk.
If Sarah Palin isn't facing-off with this Marxist Kenyan in Nov. 2012, then I'll be putting my resources to work elsewhere. Y2K can't hold a candle to what lies ahead for us all should we send another McCain, McDole, McRomney, McPerry, McCristy, McAnyone up against Teh One in November. Remember, THEY are the minority, and never forget it.
These desperate pricks have already begun to attack Real Americans for holding dear to their Constitution and the Rule of Law. I have nothing but contempt for them, including some in my own family.
This country shall not descend from this earth by the greedy demands placed upon it by those with unearthly expectations, but rather, by those who refuse to take a stand on behalf of that which is just.
To put it another way, "My ten dollar an hour job can no longer support your pension and benefits, union-boy". "Here's a kick in the nuts."
rubio is soft on immigration....against AZ law
Interesting my wifey is a traditional southern mom/wife and supports Palin or Perry or Bachmann...as do I
It’s my true opinion. If you want to call that trolling fine,but you will be mistaken.
I will never forget or forgive the utter contempt McCain showed for the working people of this country. Have you forgotten his remark that Americans couldn’t pick vegetables for $50 an hour? ‘You couldn’t do it my friend.’
He is an elitist ass who looks down his nose at all of us who have worked hard during our lives and compares us unfavorably to Mexicans. Same old,same old. Sarah Palin was his running mate and supported him. Same old,same old.
I agree with you, though if it came down to a race between Palin and Obama, Palin gets my vote.
As far as I know ONLY Sarah Palin has a realistic recovery and jobs plan to reinvigorate America, everyone else has a plan that will only benefit unions or special interest groups loyal to the “party”.
Here's a fun exercise: Tell Ann Coulter that Chris Christie is fat.
I'll bet her response will be to send you flowers and wash your car. Perhaps make you dinner.
This, coming from the only person on the planet who wants Chris Christie to be President.
Palin has never said she would announce a decision by Labor Day.
They are worried about Sarah busting up the ‘business as usual’ crowd in Washington...Obama is secondary to them. Hell, Obama helps them sell books and maintain ratings. It is interesting to note that even with Rush, Levin, Hannity and all the rest out there; the country keeps sliding to the left...
Why is EVERYONE making the argument that Palin can’t beat Obama? Doesn’t she have to get through the primary process and win the nomination first? Why worry..?
Damn...that logic and common sense isn’t going to fit in around here at all...
So making too much money and having too much pull are bad things in your warped little world?
Absolutely not! Coulter was a Mitt Romney fan. Now she's a Chris Christie fan, with Romney as backup.
Ann, you cute little mitten.
I’d click ‘like’ on that if I could. Yep.
That'd be what you are experiencing since you are implying with your coarse language that Sarah Palin is a tease. You're the one (along with Ann Coulter and Laura Ingraham) who is being "driven up a wall" by her supposed indecision.
I know. It sent me a nasty Freepmail instead of replying on the thread.
Ann is a PUNDIT! It's her job to give an opinion. You can take it or leave it, but her job is to make people react. She gave her opinion on Sarah in a respectful way that seems to have eluded many Freepers.
Shes become sort of the Obama of the tea party, shes just The One to a certain segment of right-wingers.
Yes, those votes matter if enough of them don’t vote for her but for someone else.
...Im curious why shes speaking up now.
That one is easy; Coulter needed another attention fix to feed her addiction.
Stereotype and condescend much? There are very few civil, substantive debates here these days on the electability of Sarah Palin. Any questions to that point are summarily dismissed and the insults fly. You proved Coulter's point. When you start acting like a proxy for your candidate, when you feel personally affronted and get angry when anything you deem as criticism is leveled at your candidate you by definition are a cultist. Just look at ANY thread with Rick Perry or Sarah Palin in the title, the usual, suspects have to come in and carpet bomb the thread with canned , boilerplate posts or posts meant to bully a person into silence. The problem with most of her most ardent supporters her on FR, what they don't get, and don't want to listen to is we like Sarah Palin very much but feel our like for any one candidate should never take our eye off the prize, which is getting rid of Obama.
Why do you people keep projecting? What do I care about when she announces? I'm enjoying the circus.
This is YOUR party and you're waiting for her to show up.
And yes, I think you're being teased.
Objection? Are you kidding? I'd be celebrating.
I have no problem with more conservatives such as Sarah Palin joining other conservatives such as Rick Perry.
The more, the merrier.
My question remains as follows, whether you be gander or goose.
Were Palin to win the nomination, I will happily vote for her in the general.
And were Perry to win the nomination, you will ... ????????
