Skip to comments.Ann Coulter Saw This Coming - Coulter predicted conservative outrage at Roberts a full seven

Ann Coulter prophesied the coming split between Chief Justice Roberts and conservatives back in 2005, writing that "Stealth nominees have never turned out to be a pleasant surprise for conservatives."
After pretending to consider various women and minorities for the Supreme Court these past few weeks, President Bush decided to disappoint all the groups he had just ginned up and nominate a white male.
So all we know about him for sure is that he can't dance and he probably doesn't know who Jay-Z is. Other than that, he is a blank slate. Tabula rasa. Big zippo. Nada. Oh, yeah ... We also know he's argued cases before the Supreme Court. Big deal; so has Larry Flynt's attorney.
But unfortunately, other than that that, we don't know much about John Roberts. Stealth nominees have never turned out to be a pleasant surprise for conservatives. Never. Not ever.
Since the announcement, court-watchers have been like the old Kremlinologists from Soviet days looking for clues as to what kind of justice Roberts will be.

Coulter predicted conservative outrage at Roberts a full seven years ago.
I blame most GOP senators for always leaving their balls in the primaries. Once they get to DC they become eunuchs. If they had balls, they would always go full tilt for conservative judges and beat the hell out of any rat that goes after them.
That’s nice. Nowadays Coulter is talking from the other side of the fence though.
And Drudge is now talking about Roberts’ epilepsy...
Dennis Prager was talking about this on his show today. Anyone have Coulter’s full article?
Ann is sharp as a whip, but has been blinded of late by the Beltway...
Prescience is a gift- as is Liberty.
Do the right thing, dear.
That was fast. Thanks.
The warning signs were all there, and most of us, including me, chose to ignore them.....NEVER AGAIN!
Soon we will see Harriet Miers billboards that say, “Miss me yet?”
Didn’t you get the memo....Ann is a RINO around here. /sarcasm.
If the Senate were in Democrat hands, Roberts would be perfect. But why on earth would Bush waste a nomination on a person who is a complete blank slate when we have a majority in the Senate!
We also have a majority in the House, state legislatures, state governorships, and have won five of the last seven presidential elections seven of the last 10!
We're the Harlem Globetrotters now why do we have to play the Washington Generals every week?
Conservatism is sweeping the nation, we have a fully functioning alternative media, we're ticked off and ready to avenge Robert Bork ... and Bush nominates a Rorschach blot.
Bushie, Rove, and others squandered all that and we got Pelousy and Harry Grim Reaper in 2006 and the foreign, America hating being that inhabits the Whitehouse.
In full disclosure, I used to think Roberts was one of the good things Bushie did. I guess I didn't read this article at the time not that that matters.
Gerald Ford gave us John Paul liberal.
Ronald Reagan gave us SCALIA and two wishy-washy swing voters (Sandra Day O’Connor and Anthony Kennedy).
The first Bush gave us THOMAS and also David Souter (to cancel out Thomas on all the important votes).
The second Bush gave us ALITO and wishy-washy dud John Roberts after trying to give us Harriet from down the hall at the White House.
Romney should start vetting judicial candidates right now. No blank slates. No surprises. Start with Ann Coulter.
Alito was nominated after Miers withdrew.

Harriet Meiers would have been a better bet.
Question coming to mind: Is there precedent for SCOTUS retiring/replacing during presidential lame-duck timeframes?
