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.”

Ann has sold out. Or flipped out.

Another recent poll showed the number as high as 26% of Republicans that would not vote for a Mormon.

http://pollposition.com/2011/09/14/vote-mormon-for-president/

And I saw another poll that I can’t find a link to at the moment that said something like 40%+ of evangelicals know somoene who wouldn’t vote for a Mormon for president.

Romney can’t win if even 5% of Republicans stay home much less 20% or more. A vote for Romney is a vote for Obama.

Seems like a non-starter to me.

I don’t see how Cain respects Romney as a boss, and that’s what he’d be required to do.

I can’t stand Ann. She should be a democrat. Every time she is on Hannity my wife and I change the channel or mute it. I’m so sick of Fox pimping Romney I may stop watching. The RNC called last night looking for $. I told them thet since they want the Liberal Romney as the nominee they will NEVER get another dime from me. I said that I only give money to Tea Party candidates!

Putting a RINO up as the presidential candidate is a losing strategy.

It works in only two cases:

  1. When the RINO has served faithfully as a conservative vice-president and gets swept in by the remaining reservoir of goodwill from the conservative administration. See: Bush I, 1988.

  2. When the RINO is successfully sold as a conservative because the runner-up nomination challenger is so much worse. See: Bush II, 2000.

Long story short is that Case I is the only way Mitt gets in. Not possible in 2012 and probably not possible in 2016 or 2020 because he will be too old.

Case II does not apply because Rick Perry is no longer the runner-up and they are a virtual wash as far as RINOism goes.

Cain-Gingrich is very intriguing.

The thing is Gingrich would have to be honorable and realize he is not the boss, President Cain is. He couldn’t just go out there jawboning and freelancing as Newt is wont to do.

He would have to discipline himself to be like Dick Cheney: express his opinions forcefully to the President, debate him up and down if he wants, but always support the President’s final decision.

Can Newt do that? Even if he tries?

Maybe.

(I don’t know about Mrs. Gingrich, though. She seems like she’d be like a moth to a candle as a Washington diva.)

Romney-Cain is a viable ticket. Plenty, of business, political and foreign policy experience. It's not a dream ticket but it's a viable ticket.

For all of you that voted for Huckabee in 2008, are you happy that a Mormon didn't get elected?

Cain and Perry don’t appear to like each other. That’s sort of a good prerequisite for the job.

Although Obama and Biden never appeared to like each other. So, it happens.

But if Cain were prez, I’d like to see him have a REAL VP, as Cheney was, who was there to hash out ideas and give his best shot as to advice.

Don’t see that happening with Perry. The men are just too different.

I got a letter from Mitt, asking for money. Told him: SCREW U RINO!

I'm sure I got the same request for support.

I made a WORD document with four "No RINOs" symbols, seen above on post 30. I ran Mitt's donor form through my printer twice, printing my WORD document on both sides. I mailed it to him yesterday.

I am not voting for Romney or any ticket that has this poseur on it. Period.

Then be prepared for hussein being reelected which means more young healthy radical America hating justices to the Supreme Court.

The most important aspect of the 2012 election is the Supreme Court. This is probably one of the most important elections in the nations history. Not because of the economy or foreign affairs but because of the Supreme Court and the likelyhood that one or more center-right justices will need to be replaced.

I want a *young* VP who can take over after 8 years. Cain doesn’t fit that bill, and besides, he has a history of colon cancer.

Don’t give us the GWB scenario again, with no groomed successor.

I like Marco Rubio or Rand Paul for VP.

P.S. Romney sucks and I won’t vote for him.

Cain likes Romney so not sure where you get the idea he’d be in opposition to joining him on a ticket.

I am amused Freepers are turning against Ann. She endorsed Romney years ago and only left his reservation to flirt with Christie before turning back. Yet only recently have people started to figure her out instead of gushing over her too thin figure on threads.

I don’t know that Cain could stomach some of Romney’s positions and be responsible to help sell them.

Such as who knows what Romney would actually do on Obamacare. His instincts on the issue are not good.

“Looks you might get your way with Romney-Cain and screw America in the process.”

I don't think you will ever see that ticket. From watching the news tonight it looks like Cain is about to crash and burn. Serious problems with the, ever changing, 999 plan and the nonsensical position on abortion.

At this point he may not even make it to Iowa.

I no longer repect or trust Newt. He's been 'RINOtized' in order to hob nob with the Washington crowd.

Down deep inside I have a feeling that he could pull a Clinton/intern incident. I'm not that sure he has any morals left & he knows that espousing the 'Conservative line fools a lot of folks.

He knows it's election time again - so he's 'talking' his Conservative spiel again.

I think it’s important to remember how and why Gingrich stumbled at the start of this race.

He demonstrated that he was amazing ignorant of the zeitgeist in the Tea Party and he made ridiculous and unhelpful, reach-across-the-aisle-nonsense criticisms of the Ryan plan.

He actually did have a few good points to offer, but cloaking it all in bomb-throwing terms (against his own conservatives) such as “right-wing social engineering” and such was beyond the pale.

It just made everyone remember: Yeah, Gingrich. He’s the one who is rolling along fine and then steps in it so big, you can’t even believe a politically blind man would stumble so badly.

I love him in the debates. I love his intellect. I think he has a lot to offer in the next Republican administration. But I just don’t think he’s reliable left to his own devices.
