I see a lot of action in the comments below. I need a most of us to do some research as to what it really means to be a conservative. Compare that to neo-conservative which is were Fox news is pushing us. Keep in mind Fox news IS the main stream media. Look for info in other places if you want the whole truth.
All I can tell you is that I used to LOVEEEE Rush, Hannity, Levin until I realized that they were witholding a whole lot of information from you and me. I realized that they talk a big game but in fact they themselves are the main stream media. They never talk about things like the privately owned Federal Reserve that controls our money and its supply and why it is part of the reason we are in such a terribly long recession.
If you guys have a chance and want to learn about our monetary system check out a youtube video called the Money Masters by Bill Stihl and it will open your eyes to the real problems and challenges that this country faces.
How in the world is Coulter surprised when she helped the GOP and the media choose the LEAST qualified candidate in the running, all the while helping the GOP and the media ignore the most qualified candidate, Ron Paul.
You got exactly what you deserve, and now we're going to lose the election again because you establishment idiots pushed for "Mr. Electable", Mitt "the Robot" Romney, the guy who in 2008 lost to the guy who lost to Obama.
I can't stand Ann Coulter...someone please stick something in her mouth to shut her up.
True conservatives and Tea Party folks are not surprised by Romney's neutered campaign and lame staff. We have been vocal about this for years, but the GOP establishment and Romney Kool-aid drinkers (yeah, that includes you Ann) refuse to listen. They unfairly attacked other solid GOP candidates and tried to convince us that Romney is a conservative. Mr. Electable is far from being electable. Obama has done a horrible job as president, but Romney isn't gaining much traction.
I'm telling you folks...get out there and vote to make sure we keep the House and capture the Senate. Unless something major happens, the presidency can swing either way.
Romney must fire Romney then if he is to fire Andrea Saul, for she was only telling the truth, as Mr GOP Establishment RINO Romney sees it. This is the Obama / Romney political hypocrisy at and in, it's most absurdly obvious poignant point.
We, the Reagan Tea Party Conservatives, warned about Romney and his RINO progressivism that created the Obamacare precursor- Romneycare, that would be a major problem going into the campaign election all throughout the Primaries.. But did they listen, no. Just like they, the voters, didn’t listen in 2008 with Obama..
Now we have to deal with what we warned about with Romney all throughout the Primaries, which Ann Coulter, Laura Ingraham, and the rest of the GOP establishment media vanguard supported and even stated as such, by fabricating the image by saying that forced mandated Socialized Medicine, aka Romneycare/Obamacare was somehow conservative.. Amazing, isn't it.. This is why we are in this hypocritical political situation we are in with Mr GOP Establishment RINO Romney.
Where are the Swift Boats when we need them? Oh, that's right Romney told them to back off.
OK, so since Romney will not attack Obama like he did Gingrich & Santorum, the PAC's who care about America need to go on the attack & ignore Romney's insistence that O's a nice guy.
Obama is perfect for Swift Boating since the dirt on this guy is kind of like our domestic oil supply, plentiful, if only someone will dig for it.
Big pivot with MSNBC today, GO after Obummer and team about Ad, make nice with some repubes to get some to talk on air. REPs won't give them interviews becasue they are DISGUSTING !!!!!
CNN (cooper) got NEWT to say one little truthful statement CNN and PROGs could spin, I have seen it EVERYWHERE. DISGUSTING CNN !!!!!
NEWT was just on HARDBALL with Chrissy, and he was treated like a best friend, and it was fairly honest on both sides. Chrissy wanted NEWT to say ONE simple mistake, so they could go after him like that girl who made mistake as Mitt spokeman saying man with dying wife should have been in Mass so he could have had Romneycare.
Newt did very well, and got in a lot of honest comments about Oh-uh-oh, not sure Chrissy got much. They were also after VP info and DIRT, did not happen but you see the effort by MSNBC/DNC/PROGS. They have GOT to stop this talk about the AD, because it will change the polls very negative (and IS).
Chrissy diving back into Health Cares issues (oh O-o-o did so yesterday, what a surprise !) by USING that statement by that Girl, everyone wants her fired. Showed endless clips of MITT bragging on his Romneycare (Rich was SOOOOO right on this , but we got what we got).
Making her out as HERO, and MITT as BAD candidate....OH, what a surprise and what a gift. DISGUSTING
I see it all setting up, going to be pushed hard, Nail VP guy before announcement and convention, pivot away from OBUMMMER team seen as DISGUSTING.
I say put out a AD that says D-I-S-G-U-S-T-I-N-G showing people on Oh's staff lying, and then asking AMERICA, is this what you want for 4 MORE YEARS IN THE WHITEHOUSE ????!!!!
Don't need to lie,
just show some some (ALL) people and on the streets saying DISGUSTING !!!!!!!!
ONE word would be fine with me in AD......DISGUSTING.
All responses to anything Obama throws out there should be: ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK! Stop with the pathetic defensive answers. He's go more skeletons in his closets than I've got shoes!
I am having a hard time Why Ann Coulter is So upset. Andrea Saul brought up RomneyCare and Ann wants her fired. Do NOT WHITE WASH WHO ROMNEY IS !!! THAT IS WHAT ANN WANTS DONE !! ON SEAN HANNITY LAST NIGHT SHE WANTS TO WHITE WASH HIM !! That is what people want done.
If we white Wash Romney and what he has done, when and if he is elected, people will fall asleep and think he will be great. yes i get what she is saying, but Andrea Saul spoke the Truth about Romney Care. Smash me all you want, i know you like me want Obama Care gone, but Who had the blue print for obama care.
Yeah Ann, that's why we real conservatives didn't want Romney as the nominee. He showed a lot more fight against the other Republican's than he's doing or will do in the time before the election. Just remember Ann, he was your guy! Just another McCain.
I agree she should be fired. She should be able to stay on message with a response on how Obama has lied about this incident.
Yes should be fired since she has trouble making a simple argument. She should have stayed on message on how Obama has lied.
1) Romney was not running Bain when this happened
2) The woman had her own insurance through her job and was not on her husband's insurance.
3) Bain kept his place of employment as long as they could
For all her glowing talk of Reagan, Coulter never learned Ronnie's #1 rule -- thou shalt not speak bad of other Republicans. Reagan knew it was okay to have differences behind the scenes, but he was also smart enough to realize what mattered most was to ALWAYS present a unified front to the opposition. Because he knew you could only be as strong as your weakest link. And you HAD to stick together to stand firm, even if you did have behind the scenes differences and your only goal was to LOOK firm.
Then again, Reagan was an old fashioned true believer -- and that's what made him so beloved and special to the American people. And that's why in ALL polls, he still ranks among the Top 5 presidents in history, often placing in the Top 3. It's because love him or hate him...like his policies or not...there was ONE thing that was always CONSTANT with Reagan. Namely, EVERYONE could always just TELL that he believed every word coming out of his mouth. That all of the beliefs he espoused were GENUINELY his beliefs. And that is why he always seemed to have so much conviction. It's because he freaking DID have conviction, which is something 99.999% of modern politicians lack.
However, where Ronnie was an old fashioned political gamesman, Coulter represents the new age, modern political wonk. She knows her fortunes lie in looking out for herself, even putting herself over party. She knows the big bucks come from saying outrageous things or having hissy fits on TV, in order to keep HER in the spotlight. In short, Coulter's attitude is summed up as: "It's all about me, me, me, ME. Oh wait. You actually want to talk about something? (Heavy sigh and dramatic eye roll) Okay...fine...whatever! I guess we can talk about that for a few seconds. But then let's get back to me. I have a new book to sell, and I need to plug my upcoming signings and other media appearances."
BOTTOM LINE: I get where Coulter is coming from...I do. But she didn't need to have an all-out meltdown on national TV, where she's only helping the opposition. Heck, when she goes into hysterical overdrive like this, she's even giving them sound bites and footage to use in future fund raisers or even political commercials. It's one thing to have a hissy fit during the primaries, where it's slugfest time and you EXPECT there to be a little in-fighting. THAT is what primaries are about, but they're long over. And now we're just 89 DAYS away from the election and every second counts. Every media appearance counts.
SO STAY FOCUSED AND STOP HELPING THE OTHER SIDE.
If Coulter was THAT outraged, what she SHOULD have done is sent a message through backdoor channels that bluntly said: "Listen, Mitt, here's the deal. Either get it together and fire this dunderhead or we're gone. And by "we" I mean I'm gonna use MY pull to get as many of the right wing media people and bloggers and whoever else together, in a unified front, and then WE are going to turn our backs on you. We'll write off the Oval Office till 2016 and, for now, we'll simply switch ALL of our attention and resources to Senate, House and local races to help Republicans win those. Because if Saul is any indication of the campaign personnel -- and eventual White House staff -- that you want to surround yourself with, then count us OUT."
And for the record -- yeah, absolutely, no question about it -- what Andrea Saul did was totally boneheaded. The woman is clearly in over her head and combined with the fact that she's perpetually inept and lacks ANY ability to think fast on her feet, she SHOULD be fired or asked to make a polite exit. PROFESSIONALLY speaking, this is NOT the kind of person you want as your official "in front of the cameras" spokesperson. So contact the Romney people behind the scenes and vent your anger. Then you're still voicing an opinion, but with only 89 days to go you're NOT violating Reagan Rule #1 and you're NOT helping the Democrats.
This election is TOO IMPORTANT and it has to be won before Obama can destroy this country any more. Which means the Right REALLY needs to get its act together. And I mean NOW.
I think Romney is doing the right thing FOR NOW. Team Obama just keeps digging their own grave deeper and deeper every single day. Why impede their progress?!?!
I think Romney is doing the right thing for now. Team Obama is digging their own grave and it just keeps getting deeper and deeper every single day. Why impede his progress...LOL!!
The only person who should speak for Romney's campaign is John Sununu! Saul should be fired, or demoted to drive Romney's bus, for her stupid/ignorant comments. Ann Coulter was right on the money with her rant.
"Romneycare" is an oxymoron. The man (Romney) is completely without care, without emotion. He is an empty suit, a puppet. The only thing worse than a corrupt politician (Obama) is a corrupt businessman (Romney). While the politician is in it for power, the businessman is in it just for MONEY. Vile!
All losers like you can do is criticize, but you have no guts or brains to run for any office yourself--right genius? Why don't you get your dumb@$$ off the couch and start seeking the truth? If you think you can do better, then step up! But, your capacity as a liberal would be just to talk krap! Oblamer is a communist, but you wouldn't know anything about that, would you? So, go back to your hole and come back when you have something more intelligent to say?
Just because someone doesn't like Romney doesn't mean they are a Liberal. Romney was the LEAST qualified, MOST Liberal, LEAST electable of all the Republican nominees, and was pretty much the only candidate in the top 4 (Ron Paul, Rick Santorum, Newt Gingrich, and Mittens) who was GUARANTEED to lose to Obama. Any of the other nominees would be ahead of Obama in polls right now - in fact Ron Paul was ahead of both Romney and Obama in national polls right up until he decided to focus 100% on the delegate races and stop actively campaigning primaries. If people wanted to WIN in 2012, they would have voted for Ron Paul, not the guy who lost to the guy who lost to Obama in 2008...
If it were up to Ann Coulter, women would not have the right to vote:
October 3, 2007
In an interview with the New York Observer, conservative commentator, frequent Fox guest, and alleged plagiarist Ann Coulter left this choice quote, which the Observer highlighted as "On women:"
COULTER: If we took away women's right to vote, we'd never have to worry about another Democrat president. It's kind of a pipe dream, it's a personal fantasy of mine, but I don't think it's going to happen. And it is a good way of making the point that women are voting so stupidly, at least single women.
That is not the first time Coulter said such a thing either:
COULTER: It would be a much better country if women did not vote. That is simply a fact. In fact, in every presidential election since 1950 — except Goldwater in '64 — the Republican would have won, if only the men had voted.
As quoted in "An appalling magic" in The Guardian (17 May 2003)
Now WATCH Ann Coulter confirm it herself:
Why is anyone surprised that Romney surrounded himself with people like Andrea Saul? For me it was clear from the very beginning that the conservatives will not have their representation with Romney. I couldn't disagree with Ann more a few months ago when she tried to convince us that Romney IS the conservative in the field. Sorry, his record as Governor, despite some of his great speeches doesn't show it.
Andrea Saul is an embarrassment and should be replced immediately . . .she is uninformed, can't think on her feet, and doesn't even look credible . . .she is the one claiming Romney received an income AFTER he left Bain Capital . . .get her a new job selling t-shirts at the convention . . .
Romney staffing his campaign with all the past losers would be akin to Romney hiring the management of one the failed companies he took over with Bain, to run Bain. I suspect Romney wouldn't do that so why is he doing it with these retread losers in his campaign?
Does anyone believe Sarah Palin would have anyone like Andrea Saul--working on her behalf--if she were our nominee? Only the ones who think they're smarter than everybody would have an Andrea Saul speaking on their behalf.
Keep it up, Mitt. There's an old saying, which you better heed ASAP: Nice guys finish last.
couldn't pay for entertainment like this. love reading the panic-stricken rants of the other side with a presidential election looming. :)
I know what you mean. You don't even have to read them! You can just turn on MSNBC any night of the week and watch the panic coming out of Schultz and the rest of the loony lefty mouths. I can't understand why the ratings aren't higher at MSNBC with all of us tuning in for a laugh so often.
Andrea Saul needs to go, and fast. She can't think on her feet and is terrible in front of a camera. I literally facepalmed when she mentioned Romney Care. Is she trying to lose on purpose? Romney can't win this campaign playing the nice guy. Remember what happened to McCain? These Rhinos are trying to win the presidency with a failed game plan, and throwing "Romney Care" bombs will only make it worse.
Thanks Ann. You're right as hell. Somebody has to tell Romney that having these idiots speak for you is a losing strategy. Saul worked for McCain! ! Hello. Just make john Sununu your spokesman. Romney wont grow a pair unless our side starts kicking him between the legs.
If Romney becomes a freaking pitbull he'll win hands down. This nice Guy $hit doesn't work. Watch reruns of McCain's 2008 campaign for lessons on not what to do.
Ok, to take a different perspective.
First mistake Ann has, is stating that Andrea Saul didn't say the statement was despicable, correct, but Andrea DID say that it was disgusting what was said in the AD.
Second mistake Ann got wrong here, was that Romney had left Bane 5 years prior to Soptic being fired. That is a LIE at best on her part, or lack of knowing the facts. Romney left 2 years prior to Soptic being fired, so lets get the time-line straight Ann, before we pop-off at the mouth.
Third, yes, the woman died 5 YEARS after HE lost HIS job, she still had one, and, had health insurance with it, till she left in 2005. That is his and her bad, nothing to do with Romney. And to add, since when was it GST Steel's job to cover her some 5 years after the plant closes, huh Ann?
Now, first cudo's to Ann, stupid to use Romneycare in this way, but, however you dice this onion, it is CONSTITUTIONAL FOR MASSACHUSETTS TO HAVE ROMNEYCARE. It doesn't work, it has bankrupted the state, and no one wants it nationally.
And, I must say, Andrea Saul did a wonderful job keeping her cool the entire interview, even though she probably wanted to lash out, kind of like Ann did at her, but Andrea knows what class is, and Ann doesn't. Keeping one's cool while being lied about is hard to do, and Andrea did a wonderful job.
Now granted, Andrea's political background with many failing RINO's doesn't do her any good, I agree with most of you, what a horrible pick for spokesperson.
Bottom line is, Ann needs to listen to the FULL interview before blowing up, she missed key portions of it, and spouted off at the mouth over one blurb, and misrepresented the others. Sounds like what a liberal does, not a conservative.
Ann is unhinged again. The woman needs a Valium.
My question is: Is it true? Would she receive RomneyCare?
This has been my whole point all along...we have to be consistent if we're going to rail against liberals for doing the same thing repugnantcans have/are done/doing:
Ann Coulter is Wrong on Andrea Saul: Mitt Romney Needs to be Fired Before Convention
"[I]s it Andrea Saul's fault that Romney and the Republicans (with the Heritage Foundation in 1994 as an alternative to Hillarycare) designed and implemented Romneycare, which would inspire Obamacare a number of years later? Of course it isn't. The blame should go to Mitt Romney and the Republicans for coming up with a forced mandate that led to Obamacare.
"So considering the Romney record, why is Coulter pushing to blame off on Saul? Romneycare is a part of the Romneyrecord and Saul is promoting Romney. If the problem lies within the policy, then why isn't Coulter upset with the policy. It appears to me she wants to sweep it under the rug and pretend it never happened because Coulter like many other Americans have swallowed the "anyone but Obama" pill--even when the anyone looks an awful lot like Obama on paper."
And this is EXACTLY why I keep scratching my head. It isn't like folks didn't know this would come back to bite Obamney; that it would be the Achilles heel of his campaign. And it will only get worse. It will be the Achilles heel of his debates with Obama.
All good points, stage9! Ann Coulter seem to defend Romney care in her delusional support for him during the primaries. And you are right she does want to sweep it under rug I guess hoping that we would forget. Doesn't she know that elephants have long memories unlike dumb a** donkies. Many like her think that because we have not been vocal about particular issues then we have forgotten. Well they are all wrong. We gave her so many passes with her promotion of homosexuality, Hillary Clinton over John McCain, and Bill Maher but those days are long gone AC and it really doesn't matter how much you go on Sean Hannity's show to try to rehabilitate your reputation all I see are the insults made to Sarah Palin and your support of Bill Maher.
You go Ann, tell em like it is. :) For all you that have been bashing Ann, let me tell you she just tells it like she see's it, it is her opinion not yours and to be honest she could care less what your opinion is or what the majority opinions are, that is what makes Ann so awesome.
As for Ann saying vote Romney back during the GOP primaries she was right after Herman Cain dropped out only one that would be electable was Mitt. And I say that even though I am a Newt supporter. I will vote Romney but he is just the less of two evils in my book.
What we need is someone like Reagan (I truly miss him) that can put America back into Americans and make us all feel hope. Pitty there is no one out there that can do that for us.
Sorry Chris- I disagree--We are 90 days out from backing her pick for the Presidency and she takes the opportunity to tear apart a response to an issue. dig up Romney care again and make it an issue.
She wants the attention on herself and will do anything to get it.
You know that stretch marked, anorexic, rope necked,long blonde hair on an old gal with dresses which are too short "look" is a standard look in every lounge where they charge more than six dollars for a black Russian, now known as the "Beige Commie." If the bartender cannot keep a live one awake long enough, they put a blow up doll on a stool. Nobody can tell the difference.
She is a walking cliche. They ought to stuff her and put her in the Smithsonian.
(I was 4 Newt too.)
Hey, Ann. It's about the economy stupid. You pick a cat fight with a Romney staffer while the polecat steals your country blind. Perspective Ann. Not everything is about you and how smart and clever you are.
You always want to come into the party with a bang. You 're a tired old, East side, cocktail conservative floozy who thinks she can keep her nose under the tent forever..
Good Bye Ann. Don't for get to vote and shut up.
Just because she's right doesn't prove that she isn't stupid. Even a stopped clock is "right" twice a day.
Ann only decorated it with neon lights. Hopefully David Axelrod will come out with and attack video on Stephanie Cutter and the "Romney killed my old lady" ad. Not going to happen. As stupid as liberals are, they know not to attack their own team mates. They will certainly bury her later, but they do not "Crack out of turn."
Does anyone not see the Ann Coulter is a symptom of the self righteous, we cannot lower ourselves blah blah blah, Republican establishment? Who needs enemies when our own people cannot keep their mouths shut. Do you think the commies give a damn about whether an ad is truthful? Do you think good guys will always win simply because they are good?
We've got a war to win here and self-seeking narcissistic sycophants like Coulter must be purged.
I totally agree that we cannot lose this war. I was taking your comments to mean that we should play the game the way the liberals do....where the ends justifies the means (lies and dirty tactics).
"Ann Coulter is a symptom of the self righteous, we cannot lower ourselves blah blah blah."
"Do you think the commies give a damn about whether an ad is truthful?"
"Do you think good guys will always win simply because they are good?"
One thing that really pisses me off about the libs is they constantly lie about everything they do and what they are really about. When they name a bill you can be gauranteed that what the bill does is completey opposite of what it sounds. Every election there is tremendous amounts of voter fraud on the left, and Holder is suing states in order to make fraud a whole lot easier.
The left is turning our nation into a banana republic. People are voting for Democrats because they are disillusioned on what the Democrats actually do and what they stand for. I want people to know who our candidates are by the facts, and I want our elections to be honest.
You are right, we have to win this election, and I was glad to hear you say we don't have to lie in order to do it. I apologize for mistaking what you were saying. I will say this....Republicans need to stop playing nice and tell the public exactly what the left is doing with their corruption. Stop saying Obama is a nice guy. He's not.
Kong I love you, my friend, but either you've got a hell of a lot more time left than I do or you've got a hell of a lot less time on the track than I've had.
We do not need to lie. We need to crush these liars and purge the idiots from our ranks. We must win. There ain't no tomorrow. There won't be a rematch or a sequel.
There is no room on the team for a snide little rodents like Coulter who'd rather have you listening to her clever, hair tossing analysis than thinking about what you are going to do when 100,000,000 welfare recipients receive voter registration cards with their next two checks, postage paid by American taxpayers.
I'm guessing that you do not, by circumstance, frequently shop at Walmart. Please take your family down to the company sto around September 1 and send me your observations.
Be well my friend. I thank you for your response and admire your willingness to engage. That's rare. I treasure your friendship and good will.
The ability for conservatives to "eat one's own" (so to speak) is a trademark I like. If we aren't able to criticize "our own" we can't defeat the politics of yore. You don't like that she's attacking one of our own because liberals don't do it to their own. Taking one for the team is what politicians do and I thought we were trying to change that. People do it to Romney here all the time. People try to undermine Romney every day and he's on our team. What's the difference?
