RE-ELECT OBAMA: VOTE NEWT!January 25, 2012To talk with Gingrich supporters is to enter a world where words have no meaning. They denounce Mitt Romney as a candidate being pushed on them by "the Establishment" -- with "the Establishment" defined as anyone who supports Romney or doesn't support Newt.
Gingrich may have spent his entire life in Washington and be so much of an insider that, as Jon Stewart says, "when Washington gets its prostate checked, it tickles [Newt]," but he is deemed the rebellious outsider challenging "the Establishment" -- because, again, "the Establishment" is anyone who opposes Newt.
This is the sort of circular reasoning one normally associates with Democrats, people whom small-town pharmacists refer to as "drug seekers" and Ron Paul supporters.
Newtons claim Romney is a "moderate," and Gingrich the true conservative -- a feat that can be accomplished only by refusing to believe anything Romney says ... and also refusing to believe anything Gingrich says.
-- Romney's one great "flip-flop" is on abortion. (I thought the reason we argued with people about abortion was to try to get them to "flip-flop" on this issue. Sometimes it works!)
Nearly two decades ago, when Romney was trying to defeat champion desecrator of life Sen. Teddy Kennedy, he sought to remove abortion as a campaign issue by declaring that he, too, supported Roe v. Wade.
(Nonetheless, Kennedy ran a campaign commercial against him featuring a Mormon woman complaining that Romney, as a Mormon elder, had pressured her not to have an abortion, but to give the child up for adoption. Are you getting the idea that Massachusetts is different from the rest of America, readers?)
Romney changed his mind on abortion -- not when it was politically advantageous, but when it mattered. As governor of liberal, pro-choice Massachusetts, he vetoed an embryonic stem cell bill and "worked closely" with Massachusetts Citizens for Life. The president of MCL recently issued a statement saying that, "since being elected governor, Mitt Romney has had a consistent commitment to the culture of life." Read More »
“Hmmm, she’s not all that serious being as she could support Newt:”
Her flippant remark isn’t possible support for Newt, it’s just more charlatan speak from Annie.
It is Annie who can’t be taken seriously any longer, after her love crush on Cristie and now Mittens.
She has turned into an emotional rant of a joke.
Hello lakewood convervative and Warthog-2 -
Check these out. Are they not a very interesting reflection of reality?
She could virtually assure that Newt takes Obama down, if she joined him on the ticket.
Don't know that she'd do that (she has said, 'never again'), but who knows? Stranger things have happened, and this is one election we simply cannot afford to lose.
Even if she doesn't, though, we know that she'll be throwing her considerable weight and influence in his direction.
Way to double down Annie. Didn’t you say 3 mos ago if we didn’t nominate Christie, Romney would win and he would lose the election? So which is it dingbat?
Pray for Newt
I'm praying she gets drafted.
It’s simple...she is anticipating Chris Christie being the VP for Romney and thinks that will get him elected...or she “know” Chris Christie will be Romney’s VP choice. In other orders, that’s what got her on board for Mitt.
Then, her man Big CC will follow Romney as CIC....just saying...
You only have to look not at what Romney says, but what he has DONE. He isn't a conservative, I wouldn't call him a 'moderate either'. He's a dammed Massachusetts liberal!
I don't think much of Newt either. Santorum can't win....
What ever comment #2 was, I probably agree with it. LOL
So you are saying I should just wait for baseball season and only post about my favorite sport in that section of FR.
or golf talk when that comes up ?
This name calling and such is silly however like I tell most people if it makes the person calling the names feel better about themselves or feeds their narcissism so be it.
Ann Coulter: Gasping and Clawing for Relevancy
I hear she is hanging out in the same bar Maureen Dowd drinks at and Peggy Noonan drops in on them from time to time.
“This name calling and such is silly however like I tell most people if it makes the person calling the names feel better about themselves or feeds their narcissism so be it.”
I’m guessing the massive irony of your call to dispel “name calling” and emotion on an Annie Coulter thread is going over your head.
It’s not just a little funny.
I'd be thrilled to even see her accept the VP slot with Newt. My heart would literally soar with the possibilities.
Given the looks on their faces, that is a very good question.
Snips: Driven by fear, the game plan of our smart conservative gurus is to offer a liberal-lite candidate who will also promise freebies, but not so irresponsibly -- who will punish the rich, but not so severely.
I believe that these conservative colleagues are suffering from Fearful Intellectual Conservative Syndrome.
Intellectuals in our party such as Coulter and others are rallying around Romney because they fear that America will not elect a pedal-to-the-metal true conservative. They believe that we need a liberal-lite to defeat Obama.
Meanwhile, we not-so-smart, naïve Tea Party patriots believe that a true conservative will win in a landslide.
We did the "liberal-lite thing" in '08 and lost. Remember a guy named John McCain? So why on earth would we go there again?
We know the drill. Here is the play-by-play. The lib media and Republican elite convince all the "smart people" on our side that only a reasonable "moderate" like Romney can possibly beat Obama. So, out of fear, we select Romney as our 2012 presidential nominee.
Upon Romney officially winning the Republican nomination, the lib media turns on him. Suddenly, they declare Romney a Mormon religious nut. They release all kinds of stories about how electing Romney would equal the personification of evil in the White House.
And no left-wing/Democrat exploitation of having a black candidate would be complete without the lib media, the NAACP, and the Obama administration finding ways to portray Romney as a stealth KKK card-carrying racist. This would be the left's 2012 presidential campaign against our "moderate" Republican candidate.
Newt is a conservative.
GO NEWT!!!! WOO-HOO!
Well damnit, I was speaking for myself! And I’m still mad as hell. For goodness sakes I like Newt too. I’m just waiting for the next shoe to fall!!!!! Why can’t he control himself better??? Hum??? I know he’s brilliant and he’s the only person on that debate platform who’s fighting for US! Fighting for us!!
No matter, I’ll vote for whomever the nominee is. So get off my back. It’s been a lousy day; my husband was turned down in the job we wanted! And I deserve my fifteen minutes of pity party. So there!!
Given the level of fan worship passion directed my way, it was difficult to say what sort of depth I was dealing with.
Blind faith is a strange and fickle thing, "kid", and since one never knows how the afflicted will react, I asked.
I'm truly sorry for your loss.
mittbot lingo .... I am not bashing Newt and just cant get on the bandwagon.
And they NEVER stay focused on the post - reply to something that wasn't even addressed.
Do you have two accounts?
Newt appears to be doing very well in the polls with conservative supporters.
He’ll be fine and he’ll ramp up for the last debate vs. Mittens.
Ann seems to have gone nuts over Mitt. She thinks anyone not in love with Romney is a liberal traitor. And her “logic” is nor up to her norm.

“Ann Coulter died when she supported Mitt Romney.”

Ann Coulter, RIP
1961 - 2011
So now “conservatives” are quoting Jon Stewart?
BTW, how often does Jon Stewart ridicule Viacom or Sumner Redstone? I guess he’s about as free of conflicts of interest as Ann Coulter.
It's more like he sat with and endorsed imperfect people. So has Mitt and so has Santorum.
It has nothing to do with being an insider or outsider - the establishment doesn't want anyone rocking their boat. Palin was not an insider but they got seasick just knowing what she is capable of. Same with Newt.
So, in other words, he has no core values and will pander to whichever group he thinks will bring in the most votes? Gotcha!
How can you trust anything he says? When it suits him, he'll flip back to the pro-abortion side.
We have all heard him speak innumerable times now in countless debates and public appearances, and have had ample time to assess his point of view on a wide range of issues. We must all be stupid. Yeah, that's it.
Because a Harvard-educated Washington lawyer is bound to be a far better judge of such things than we could ever be. /s
I don’t know what you guys are talking about. Our tea party rebellion has been roaring for about three years now. No arms are involved, other than those attached to our hands clicking away at our keyboards or holding signs, flags, etc. Our rebellion is against the entrenched RINO/Marxist establishment ruling class and its a rebellion at the ballot box.
They can pry my keyboard from my cold dead fingers!!
Rebellion is ON!!
So, she’s saying it was okay for Romney to say whatever he had to say in order to beat Kennedy. In other words, Romney lied yet we’re supposed to believe him today.
I hope those who bought her books will stop it. I don’t follow her anymore and I’ve noticed Fox doesn’t say “Fair and Balanced” much anymore. They’re admitting they’ve moved to the left.
When this RINO “dates”, she dates LIBERALS. Nuff said.
Ms. Coulter....Jim Robinson’s points are well made. Also, get this through your head. WE THE PEOPLE DON’T WANT ROMNEY AS THE GOP CANDIDATE OR AS POTUS. All of your anti-Newt rants are NOT helping Romney...they are destroying your credibility amoung conservatives.
IF you want to sign the praises of Romney...go for it. However, it is time to lay off the negatives on others running against him.
Also, you owe the good people of South Carolina an apology (comparing them to a mob). Insulting candidates is bad enough...but insulting the voters is unforgiveable. You had better wise up quick or resign yourself to an early retirement as a commentator or switch sides. Conservatives are NOT listening to you anymore. There is NOTHING noble in this self destructive behavior you are exhibiting.
Take a deep breath, count to one million, and then stick to attacking Obama. Stay out of the primary process....you are doing no good.
Let’s see... George HW Bush—RINO, Moderate—lost, Bob Dole-dull, vanilla moderate—lost, John McCain( Romney endorser) big chicken, scared to use BO’s full name, RINO—Lost, Romney— moderate, RINO, will lose. Ann wants BO to win, that’s why she supports yet another RINO, milquetoast, moderate to run against the corrupt dem machine.
At least THIS Romney supporter is honest about his reason for supporting Myth. Quite interesting video that just hit today....
You may be right about her wanting BO to win. Therefore she can continue to take the stage and bytch about what a shape the country is in all because of the Demonrats (and RINO’s too but she won’t say that). Get a real Conservative in the White House and she’ll be diminished, imho.
And I'm not zotting you, just can't get on your ankle biting bandwagon right now, I have previously said that while ankle biters are pesky, they are not the worst of the trashers, bashers, slashers lot, but they usually grow up to be so knowing that these cases seldom end well, guess we'll just politely say goodbye and part company while we're still friends.

I appreciate all that Ann has done for conservatism in the past, but I am done until she comes to her senses about Romney and Newt. She has disappointed me on this one and I can no longer just ignore this as a disagreement among conservatives. I must now seriously question her judgment.
Ann, WTF?! You’re comparing me to a drug-seeker because I support Newt? That’s unconscionable, Ann.
Was that a .45 acp?
It’s not my PS, but it does look like a .45 ACP to me too.
Ann Coulter to Serve as Honorary Chair of GOProuds Advisory Council
So why is gay activist Ann Coulter and her longtime BFF Matt Drudge backing Mitt Romney, the governor who introduced gay marriage to the nation in Massachusetts, for president so enthusiastically? Just like the courts legalized gay marriage in Massachusetts during Governor Romney’s tenure, do Ann Coulter and Matt Drudge think Mitt Romney will appoint Supreme Court justices who will institute gay marriage nationally?
Running Gingrich against Obama would be like campaigning to replace the captain of the Titanic with the captain of the Exxon Valdez or the captain of the Costa Concordia. Coulter is simply spotlighting the many ways that Gingrich is unfit to be at the helm of the ship of state in a time when, if it hasn’t already hit the iceberg, it’s headed straight for it.
Compared to Bret Stephens, of course, she’s a cockeyed optimist:
JANUARY 24, 2012
The GOP Deserves to Lose
That’s what happens when you run with losers.
I’ve learned a lot from reading her columns and books over the years, despite the toxic rhetoric and her ‘take no prisoners’ debating style. Arguably, she is simply mirroring her adversaries’ toxic talk, even as they are so lamely and hypocritically “shocked, shocked” that a conservative has the nerve to call them out with rhetorical moves as outrageous as theirs.
Newt a conservative? Read all of Coulter’s columns on the Newt again: Gingrich is all over the field, but can usually be found wherever the density of available money to rent political insiders is highest, or the hottest available woman may be found.
Gingrich would be an empty suit, a hollow man, if he weren’t so full of himself (he truly resembles Obama in that way, though without a Michelle to trim his sails with the help of her own gargantuan ego and sense of entitlement). Another poster stated that he (she?) is praying for Newt. That is admirable and appropriate. It is also appropriate to pray for a better fate than Obama or Gingrich in the White House in 2013, although if the ship of state has already hit the iceberg (a real possibility given the fiscal wreck immediately ahead on the current course), it won’t really matter all that much.
Perhaps it’s better to invest less effort in handicapping the next captain of USS Titanic, and give closer attention to checking out one’s flotation gear and drifting closer the life boats. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/01/21/us-usa-civilization-collapse-idUSTRE80K0LA20120121
