Ann Coulter: ‘I want Romney-Cain’
Daily Caller ^ | 10/21/2011 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 10/21/2011 3:33:01 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

To say Ann Coulter had a political crush on New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie might be putting it mildly. So when Christie announced he wasn’t running for president, and then endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the natural thing for her to do would have been to push for a Romney-Christie ticket.

Not so fast.

On Thursday night’s “Hannity,” the author of “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America” elaborated on her endorsement of Romney last week, but also endorsed Cain for his signature “9-9-9” tax plan.

“I am so glad you asked about Herman Cain,” Coulter said. “I want Romney-Cain. I wouldn’t be displeased with Cain at the top of the ticket, though as I said before it’s risky running someone who hasn’t held elected office before.

“But I love the ‘9-9-9’ plan and the more people that attack it — fellow Republicans in the media — the more I love it. It’s a fantastic plan. I’m encouraging Mitt Romney to choose Herman Cain as his vice-presidential nominee.”

I think he believes in personally being pro-life, but when he is questioned on it he gives the classic pro-choice answer every time.

He did the same thing on the 2nd amendment, claims to support it but then goes on to say that states and cities can regulate guns however they want.

Then the 999 plan has turned into a mishmash of special breaks for any group he happens to be talking to at the time. His campaign is in serious trouble.

Aye, Gingrinch is rippin’ smart, capable in a debate.

IMHO...

Ultimately he is far too much of a politician to stick to any sort of principles.

The only possible way I would begin to think that he was a changed man from the guy who schmoozes and wheels and deals with the left wing is if he publicly admitted it and went off on some tangent of sticking to principle. But IMHO it’s just not who he is.

He’s starting to sound like he gets what the Tea Party and like-minded people are thinking (and what the nation really needs), but I just don’t see how one could really trust that he would not horse-trade away something significant for social conservatives in order to get what’s needed for some economic change, etc.

Well Ann, you can forget about having me fantasies about you.

Republicans like Mitt Romney are the reason the Democrat Socialist Party has acquired so much power and done such damage to this country.

No Romney, no way, no how.

I held my nose and voted for that traitorous turd McCain, knowing all the while who he was. I’m not doing it twice.

Not so sure about crash and burn. But serious problems? Yes! This is what can happen with a political neophyte. No governing or legislative record to judge Cain on. Rhetoric can only carry a candidate so far.

Emotional euphoria remains a big factor with Cain supporters.

I think the question is, do we have to settle for Cain-Romney just to appease the mods?

Or would Cain-Perry be adequate?

Or...how about Cain - Daniels? I sort of like that to be honest.

(Now before all of you all go ballistic, I’d encourage you to go review and see if you have any previous posts where you suggested that Cain as VP was useless, b/c the VP spot is a bucket of warm spit....can’t have it both ways you know....).

That may be true, but if they lose, be prepared what another 4 years of Obama including a decisively liberal Supreme Court will do to this country.

You don't have to vote GOP, but acknowledge what you are going to get if you don't.

Sorry, but if Romney is the best the GOP can come up with then they deserve to lose. I’m not voting for that clown.

I'm not saying Romney will be the nominee but 2012 is one of the most important elections in the nation's history. Some of the center-right Supreme Court justices will be old enough that they may have to be replaced. The Supreme Court is what 2012 is all about.

Whoever the nominee is will be a major improvement over hussein, Some may be more major than others but any of the current candidates would be a major improvement over hussein.

All conservatives need to support whoever the eventual nominee is as if is was their dream ticket. To do otherwise will risk hussein replacing center-right supreme Court justices with young, healthy America hating leftist radicals.

I doubt I’m alone in this and the GOP will push McCain Jr. on conservatives at their own peril.

I didn't like him one bit but I can only wish we had McCain as president now.

Because he speaks of black people in certain regions recieveing certain benefits. In his CNN interview he lauded empowerment zones, now opportunity zones, because they were predominately black. His words.

I am so sick of everything divided by color and it's clear he is not color blind. Go read his church website and his pastors sermon on justice and government being the equalizer for black people. Antioch Baptist Church North.

I do not believe a white candidate would talk about white people and what they deserve.

Scary thought. If Romney indicates that he will pick Cain as VP (and Cain has already agreed to consider that) could Romney actually win the nomination?

It’s possible.

We’ll just have to wait and see what Cain does.

I'm not venting when I say that I may vote third party or write in Mickey Mouse. We will be worse off if Romney embraces and then expands the Obama agenda after he gets in, because, being a Republican, he will get Republicans to go along with him--the way Pete Wilson and Arnold Schwarzenegger got Republicans to go along with them when they embraced Democratic policies.

I don't like the concept of "opportunity zones" either, but like it or not, Cain and Bachmann are the only viable conservatives in the race--and with Bachmann running out of gas, Cain is our only hope.

Yes, that’s sort of the problem: Gingrich “gets” the Tea Party finally. But he never seemed to instinctively understand it.

A politician’s instincts are very telling. And I’m not so sure about Newt’s.

I remember when Obama was running there were questions among some black conservatives of who they would vote for and it was very serious because some prominent black conservatives were actually on the fence (even Condoleeza Rice was defensive of Obama) Powell endorsed him over McCain. There were even pundits who were considering it.

I wonder if Herman Cain voted for Obama and if I had the opportunity in a town hall I would ask him.

I will be voting for Rick Perry. I of course know alot about him because he is my governor and I understand how he turned people off in his debates, but he's really not from Washington and I think he was shell shocked. He's not a professional speaker like Cain nor a debater like Romney but he will stand by his idea that Washington is the problem, not the solution. I have a good friend who is a State Patrol Officer who guarded Perry and knows they type of man he is. I also know Perry has fought to secure the Texas(US) Mexico border. My friend who patrols in Austin had to do time on the border as does every Sate Trooper no matter where in Texas they live.

This politic stuff is ugly but Perry will be there in the end.

I am hoping for a Gingrich/Santorum ticket. I could be happy with a Gingrich/Palin ticket, too. I want Newt Gingrich at the helm for the next four years because he is job ready ... he can hit the ground running, making the cancellations to democrap socialism needed to get people back to work, get US on the way to energy independence, and re-establish our freedom promoting standing in the world of socialist and commie wannabes.

And one more unspoken yet very important point about Newt Gingrich: he is a real Historian, so he is more aware of what the nation has been and how it was intended by the founders and the founding documents.

The MSM will cut Gingrich to ribbons. They have decades worth of garbage that they don't even have to find or dig up. It's already there for them to use at every moment.

You must also be forgetting about all the flip-flops Gingrich has launched during his countless campaign pandering attempts.

I'm 66, not 96. I have lived attentatively through Newt's years in public office. I consider my Republic far more valuable than the supposed baggage the media has convinced folks like you is murderous. The one the media wants is Rominy (rhymes with hominy, the huskless corn prodcut) because they know he can be dismantled very thoroughly to give their bassturd boy a clear road.

Have you ever watched the Prime Minister addressing the open Parliament in England, the question and answer scene? There is only one Republican candidate who could do that, think fast enough on his feet, Newt Gingrich. Perry would be treated for cardiac arrest, Bachmann would be so flustered and in tears, Rominy and Obama would try to lie their way through. Ron Paul would be taken out in a straight jacket with ball gag, and Herman Cain would use repetitive replies as functioning non sequiturs. Newt knows the quisiling democrats and knows how to work them into signing.

(See how that works both ways?)

Do you feel a sense of relief that neither McCain nor Mitt Romney is president at this moment? Do you feel better for this nation that McCain and Huckabee teamed up to keep Romney from winning the GOP nomination in 2008?

When you look at the legislation hussein has signed. When you consider hussein's executive orders. When you see the judical appointments hussein has made. Do you feel a sense of relief that Mitt Romney isn't president?

2012 is not about electing the candidate whose positions are closest to our ideal but rather to elect someone other than hussein. Any of the current Republican candidates would be an enormous improvement over hussein but not all of the current Republican candidates are capable of winning a general election.

We go into the primaries and vote for who we feel is closest to our ideal and has the best chance of winning the Republican nomination. By convention time, if our candidate isn't the nominee, so be it. We pull every bit as hard for the nominee even if we have to plug our noses. To do otherwise risks the national calamity of hussein getting a second term.

No thanks. A RINO is just as bad, actually worse. The slow road to socialism(RINO) is more painful than the fast one(Dem).

You are a fool if you think Mr. Magic Underwear or any other RINO would be better than o. They are one and the same.

Robamney would do the same as O, maybe a at a slower,more painful pace.

No Romney. If he’s the nominee, either leave the presidental ballot blank or write someone in, then vote for House and Senate.

No more RINOs. A vote for Romney is the same as voting for Obama.A vote for a RINO is the same as voting for a Dem. Liberals will be liberals, no matter what letter is behind their name.

Whatever. If Romney wins the nomination I’m not voting for him. At least I’ll say it. Millions of other people won’t say it but they’re not going to go to the polls and vote for this clown just because some sh*t for brains is out bleating about supporting a party.

If that means Obama gets back in then that’s the risk you’re taking by supporting someone like Romney who’s detested by actual conservatives.
