Coulter world

Coulter world

It’s no secret that Ann Coulter is no fan of Newt Gingrich. The staunch Romney supporter isn’t shy about conveying her dissatisfaction with Gingrich in general, and particularly with his straight forward, and occasionally harsh manner of speaking.

Back in December, while the Romney Super PACs were in the midst of engaging in a multi-million dollar attack on Gingrich in Iowa, the attacks were coming from the conservative media as well, and Coulter was at the helm. In a December appearance by Coulter on the O’Reilly factor, she attacked Gingrich saying that he “makes wild overstatements” that are “bombastic” and that his inflammatory rhetoric “hurts good causes.”

Coulter backed off when it appeared that the relentless string of attacks against Gingrich had finally made sure that he was down, and would stay down. Unfortunately for Coulter and those who believe as she does, Newt found himself surging again in South Carolina after most of the media and blogosphere had declared his presidential bid legally dead for a second time this election cycle. The late surge carried him to an easy victory in South Carolina, capturing a double digit margin of victory over his nearest rival, Mitt Romney.

So guess who’s back? Following Newt’s landslide victory, Coulter again came out after Gingrich with some wild rhetoric of her own, dubbing him the “least electable” and “least conservative” candidate in an interview on Fox News. This time, however, her criticism wasn’t limited to the presidential candidate, as she also derided South Carolinians saying that they would “rather have the emotional satisfaction of a snotty remark toward the president than to beat Obama in the fall.”

So, according to Coulter’s logic, having a double digit margin of victory in a statewide primary that has consistently predicted the republican nominee for President for the last 30 years, makes you the least electable candidate.

The South Carolina primary’s usually prophetic history doesn’t bare any consequence to Coulter in this case because they were just voting “emotionally” this time. And Newt’s sudden uptick in Florida while Romney is simultaneously fading? I’m sure Coulter would relegate that to Newt’s campaign putting something in the orange juice.

I understand if you don’t support the man, but at least give credit where credit is due. Dismissing a win like the one Newt had in South Carolina as an emotional fit that apparently took hold of an entire state isn’t exactly a logical argument, in fact, I’d say it might even be borderline bombastic.

Who knows, maybe I’m just being emotional.

It’s all about her Chris Christie crush. She sees a Romney nomination as her guy’s ticket to the big show with him as Romney’s VP… and from there to the big chair after two Romney terms.

It really is that simple and, frankly, a bit pathetic.

    “It’s all about her Chris Christie crush.

    which is where this statement gets so ironic

      Yeah, that is kind of like the pot talking to the kettle.

      “Civil” is not a word that comes to mind when one things of Ann…

She’s destroying herself over this. She’ll never have another best seller. It’s not simply that she supports Romney, it’s her hysterical and elitist vindictiveness.

    I can’t wait to see how she’s received at CPAC…

    I agree raven. To argue that Gingrich is less electable than Romney is one thing (though I completely disagree with this logic), but to argue that he is less conservative than Romney is something else entirely.

    Midwest Rhino in reply to raven. | January 23, 2012 at 8:26 pm

    She’s been through some rough battles … attacked constantly when speaking on campuses, a target of the left in many blogs. On Red Eye she laughs too much … she might be losing it.

    I’ll chalk it up to post traumatic stress disorder. Thanks for the memories Ann … let the rest of us take it from here.

      I think Ann Coulter is getting rattled. I so admired her when I read her book, Godless, and I was looking forward to buying her newest one. But I never did buy it. I began mentally pushing her away after every FNC appearance when she was touting Christy and Romney. She was too frantic and shrill on O’Reilly’ the other night. I’ve lost it for her.

Romney, Christie, Gingrich. Two blowhard middle of the roadies and one guy who needs a personality infusion, STAT.

Not one of them is a real conservative. They are just slightly to the right of Obama’s stated positions (though, like him their actual actions are likely to be further left than stated).

    @ Kerrvillian; I agree. Where is she going from here? What does she do after this fall when her “the sky is falling” schtick without posting a shred of evidence forces her into early retirement at Casa Irrelevant? Got to be a case of battle fatigue. Bugler, time for Taps.

Mitt’s people are going to realize sooner or later that wild-eyed attacks on Newt by Romney shills is not endearing their candidate to the base.

It’s hard to believe that even Ann has the cajones to criticize Newt because he “makes wild overstatements” that are “bombastic” and that his inflammatory rhetoric “hurts good causes.” Did her head spin when she said that? And that wasn’t good enough so she doubled down and insulted the very people she wants to vote for her guy? I did hear to dismiss the conservative voter because of course they’d fall in line. I’m curious as to whether the GOP crowd like Ann would “fall in line” behind Newt if he ended up the nominee.

    It’s hard to believe that even Ann has the cajones to criticize Newt because he “makes wild overstatements” that are “bombastic” and that his inflammatory rhetoric “hurts good causes.”

    The irony is strong with that one.

    katiejane, you make a point that I have wondered about. I was a Perry supporter before I decided to support Newt but one point I have always made was that I will vote for any republican over Obama. You never hear Romney supporters same the same thing if their guy doesn’t make it.

NC Mountain Girl | January 23, 2012 at 6:54 pm

It’s never a good idea to insult the people who buy your books or watch your show.

Is this about invites to certain Palm Beach soirees, Ann? Is a Bain co. boosting your media syndication? (Do you know where you live these days?)

And the bartender said, “So, Ann, why the long face?”

Steve Roberts | January 23, 2012 at 7:09 pm

I like Newt because he believes what he says.

Romney? Not so much.

Moderator: “Governor Romney, what would you change about your campaign?”

Romney: “I’d be less critical of other candidates and focus all my criticism on Obama.”

Really Mitt? Really?

Never forget that the establishment would rather lose than have a conservative win. As Rush says, it’s all about control of the money.

Mann Coulter should STHU. S/he has lost all credibility.

And why does s/he have a huge adams apple?

“If Mitt is the nominee, he will lose to Obama”–Ann Coulter, February, 2011.

Ann, you once thrilled me. Now you bore me. Never thought I would say this but, the Libs were right about you.

I know I’m not the only who won’t be buying anymore of her books.

DocWahala – spforsees Anne cheering Obama on, just to prove herself.

I don’t like Coulter, never have. I’m a recovering liberal so I don’t really follow the people who make money off conservatism.

I will say this much about newt, I CANNOT STAND THE MAN, so if I was asked if I look at him favorably or unfavorably. I would put 80% unfavorable.

Does this mean I won’t vote for him? HELL NO. I’ll vote for Newt, Romney, ABO. My unfavorability for Barry is 100%.

    Tamminator in reply to alex. | January 23, 2012 at 8:22 pm

    Thank God you came to your senses. And I’m ABO too, but I still like Newt. Six years ago, stuck in a small airport, I bought one of his books. I didn’t even like the guy, but I thought, “Hell, why not see what he has to say”. The book was “Real Change”. He admits in that book how he screwed up.
    And he was looking for solutions to make things better.
    This was when Bush was in office, so at least he knew things weren’t so great under his own party.

    He may be a pompous ass, but I actually think that’s what we need right now. A no bullshit President.
    Just my two cents.

I love the way Newt is not intimidated by the Barry worshipping lefty press. I wish in 2008 Hillary had fought back like that, or even Mccain.

The LSM’s agenda is barry agenda. They are joined at the hip.

In 2008 didn’t Coulter say she would support Hillary over McCain? See a pattern? Me thinks she isn’t a true conservative…

Guess ya’ could say, Coulter has gone full maher.Hmmm..or is that mare?

BTW:

Report: More Than 900 Dead People Voted in South Carolina Elections. Fox News Insider

Of course, Eric the Red indicates that photo ID, is..well, hell, Racist.

So umm, this is the next step.

Have a photo ID do you? Sure do!

Coulter has gone completely unhinged and off the rails. And, because of her (and others, like the powerline boys), this primary has become a circular firing squad. I wonder where she got the idea that going scorched earth on other republican candidates and their supporters was a good idea.

Just watched Coulter on O’Reilly and she was a raving mess.

When this is all said and done, there will be several people who squandered all of their goodwill with the conservative movement by supporting Mitt Romney, who could never win the nomination.

High on that list is Chris Christie and Ann Coulter. People will not soon forget that they worked so hard to foist the craptacular Romney on us. Christie might win again in New Jersey, but he is done nationally.

Fill in the blank: “I am enthusiastic to vote for Mitt Romney because __________________”.

And after he lost Iowa and got pasted in South Carolina “he is the most electable” is no longer a valid answer.

I’m not a Newtist (yeah…I made that up…I slay me) but I’m sick to death of these entrenched elitist GOP/conservative wonks acting like the great unwashed are just a bunch of…great unwashed who couldn’t pour pi$$ out of our boots with the instructions on the heel. They’re not much better than the libtards with their ‘I don’t know anyone who voted for….’ attitude. Hey jerks…there’s a whole ‘nother country outside the beltway and we kinda see things different. We don’t want a same old, same old, go-along-to-get-along president that will only mitigate Emperor Obamas’ damage. We want someone who has a spine and may actually undo the damage. That is all.

I don’t like hateful people anyway. But when she grinned and told Hannity one night that she is friends w Bill Maher and wouldn’t say anything bad about him, that spoke volumes. The woman obviously is not a conservative as many others aren’t who claim to be. She just did Gingrich a favor as did Christie.

[…] he might be the monster with the message. Coulter is also saying that voters for Newt Gingrich “rather have the emotional satisfaction of a snotty remark toward the president than to beat Obama in….” Emotional satisfaction is not the reason people are voting for Gingrich and cheering him […]

I haven’t seen her in ages. I was floored at how strident she as become. Very, very shrill in her declarations.

NC Mountain Girl | January 23, 2012 at 9:30 pm

Poor Ann. She likes to gave herself airs that she is a graduate of the Ivy League Cornell Liberal Arts College while that pathetic, over the top Keith Olbermann is a graduate of Cornell Agricultural and Life Sciences College. Today Ann is picked her opinions straight off the floor of the poultry barn.

There are two factions within the Republican Party now, the standard GOP Rockefeller-Bush-Romney Republican Party Estblishment RINO elites, and the Reagan Conservatiove Tea Party Patriots.

Guess which side Ann Coulter sides with.. which is also not with the people. The arrogant eltist permanent political class snobs of the Republican Party RINO establishment, is not a grass roots ordinary everyday average people faction entity.

So the only thing Ann Coulter is doing, is partitioning herself off into this political faction category, which gives her absolutely no credibility with the Reagan Conservative Tea Party people, which she undoubtedly disdains and has nothing but utter contempt for, like her fellow RINO buddy, crispy cream Christie.. Which she has either no comprehension of, and or she could care less. I would undoubtedly say the later..

That’s what, how, and why she, and the rest of the RINO elitists, in their public display of arrogance, elitism, and utter, or shall I more politely say, passionate contempt, for Reagan Conservatives, makes them behave and act the way they do.

“katiejane, you make a point that I have wondered about. I was a Perry supporter before I decided to support Newt but one point I have always made was that I will vote for any republican over Obama. You never hear Romney supporters same the same thing if their guy doesn’t make it.”

You bring up a good point. Since the elite on both sides are in the same bucket, so to speak, and have made it a point to tell us that Newt is not in there with them, maybe they will vote for obama in order to keep the status quo. These are party over country people. It is like we don’t belong to the same party with them. A different species altogether. They act as if it is not important who is president as long as they get their time on TV and invitations to cocktail parties with the “in” crowd. And, of course, money comes into this also both under and over the table.

The biggest failure of logic of Ms Coulter: Ms Coulter slams Newt for Newt’s call to Romney to reign in his superpac. Ms Coulter states that, “Doesn’t Gingrich know that it is ILLEGAL for Romney to have influence over his superPAC…It makes no sense, if you think about it for all of three seconds.”

Interesting, if you think about it for all of three seconds, you realize that she is a complete hypocrite. She and others were just criticizing Newt for not reigning HIS superPAC regarding the Bain Capital criticism. Doesn’t SHE know that it is illegal for a candidate to have influence over a superPAC?

Now our good professor host can instruct us on legalities, but common sense says that a candidate can issue a public statement and the superPAC will fall in line.

OMG !!! I just watched a clip with Ms Coulter on Bill O’Rielly tonight going after Giingrich and she starts slow and then a little faster and faster and faster into this fever pitch where i thought her head was either going to explode or catch on fire …. like into she-devil and then bite off O’Rielly’s head … just sayin : )

for real … ya gotta check it out !!! http://www.foxnews.com/on-air/oreilly/index.html#/v/1410163709001/will-romney-prevail-over-gingrich/?playlist_id=86923

O’Reilly-Coulter video: Ann’s hysteria may well be a symptom of post-SC-post-traumatic stress syndrome: Woman on the Verge of an “Electability” Breakdown.

So what will AC do if Gingrich gets the nomination. Sit it out?
Campaign for King B.O.? Become a permanent guest on Bill Maher’s “show”?

AC’s vitriol will cause her book sales to plummet if/when Gingrich becomes the nominee. I know the one I have has been moved from the bookshelf to the “doorstop”.

Since when does Ann Coulter have an aversion to “snotty remarks?”

Ann Coulter = Harpia harpyja

Perhaps some campaign funds are now in the pockets of Ms.Coulter?? Last year @CPAC, “No Romney”; now a “Romney supporter”.

Here are some of Ann’s reasons in supporting Romney instead of Newt Newt’s had 3 marriages and 2 affairs(the 2 being wife #2 and wife #3. Romney has been happily married to his college sweetheart. I can appreciate that,and I am happy for them. Ann believes this makes Romney better than Newt,Where I believe it makes him luckier. We all know friends,family and maybe even personally who have gone through messy divorces .Most are hurtful,demeaning,self righteous,vengeful he said /did,she said/did and unless you’re a fly on the wall.you’ll never know for sure.in reality both are to blame. Newt converted to catholism and
