(Some Guy)   You don't have to like her, but Ann Coulter pretty much called BS on all the other GOP commentators that Romney is the "establishment choice". You hear that Rush, Hannity? She called you the establishment...and hypocrites   (anncoulter.com) divider line 96

LOL. Coulter's been in the tank for Romney for a while now. Her poo-pooing the reality that Romney is the GOP-E candidate of choice and pretending that she herself is not a part of an orchestrated attempt by the GOP to make it so is, sadly, predictable.

Not sure whether to gratz subby for having the "some guy" link go straight to Coulter or whether to toss a styrofoam brick in their general direction.

I see she's sticking to the "Unlike actual Establishment candidates, Romney has never worked in Washington, much less spent his entire life as a professional politician." line.

uh no, she didn't call Rush establishment. Rush wants Santorum to win. Rush is saying Romney is the establishment choice, i.e., who republican republicans and currently elected republicans want, not who conservative republicans want. Romney is the candidate of choice for republicans who are up for reelection in 2012. Santorum is the candidate of choice for talk radio blowhards.

For the last ten years or so, I've been able to easily adopt the ethical, logic-based perspective on any issue simply by seeing where Ann Coulter is on it, and taking the diametrically opposed position. It is truly pathetic that at this point the GOP has gone so far around the bend that Coulter is the voice of reason for them. She's still pants-on-head crazy, but in the current GOP asylum, the person wearing the underpants hat is infinitely preferable to the rest of the crowd who are wildly masturbating with one hand while flinging poo with the other.

Mitt Romney did something even Ronald Reagan didn't do as governor of California: He balanced the budget without raising taxes.

This is one of those statistics that needs an asterisk. Increased fees intended to be paid by the majority of the people are not technically taxes. Charging a non-refundable fee to plead not guilty to a traffic ticket is not technically a tax. Issuing bonds to pay routine operational expenses is not technically putting the budget out of balance.

This, and other things like this, are the reason why claiming Romney during his term as governor of Massachusetts didn't raise taxes is technically correct (the best kind of correct)

/Ann Coulter will become persona non-grata within the GOP for even implying that Ronald Reagan (pbuh) raised taxes during His term as governor of California by the end of this week

You don't have to like her, but Ann Coulter is a human being with a mouth and says things. So, suck it, other people who say things!

Ann, you're too old for middle-aged Republican men to pay attention to you anymore. Changing your schtick won't get you another audience because product differentiation isn't what drives sales in that market. As in all forms of entertainment, the market wants fresh meat. You're old, dried up meat.

I assume you know this, and you're just trying to maximize revenue as you fade into obscurity.

So many "right wing" commentators have been going with the "any conservative can beat Obama ,so we should have the most conservative one we can find" or " this is our chance to get a Real Conservative elected" Unfortunately they seem to have convinced a lot of GOP voters that this is true. All the evidence of polls for the last several elections shows that it's the swing voters that decide the elections and they don't like extermists on either side. Obama was elected by promising to be the voice of reason, in spite of his extremely liberal voting record, not by promising to be the most left wing. Like hubiestubert, if the GOP chooses Santorum, then I will have to stop supporting them. I would never vote for Obama but there is no way I would vote for Santorum either.

I pretty much agree with you on almost everything you said. And while I dislike her (him?) for the bile she/he spews, there is one thing that I must disagree with. She's not crazy. Far from it. She knows her audience and how to milk them for all it'$ worth. And she has an uncanny ability to piss of her opposition that borders on brilliance. Which just makes her supporters admire her even more. She has found a fantastic gimmick and she has mastered it.

Wasn't John McCain the last presidential nominee for the Republicans? And Mitt Romney is going to be the next. Both in spite of the "establishment" she cites.

It makes for a nice dig to say that Rush Limbaugh controls the Republican party, but no, that's not how it works. The people that pay the bills, or threaten to pay their opponents' bills, that's who controls both parties.
 
2012-02-23 01:00:16 PM  
I love the part where she says "Hey, he balanced the MA budget without raising taxes! Let's see everyone else in here do that."

Conveniently ignoring that Romney raised fees on about everything he could so he could generate revenue without calling it a 'tax'

She's wrong. Romney IS the presumptive nominee. He has the party backing, he's got the delegates, and he's the only one who will stand a running chance against Obama in November.

It's been clear-cut since the beginning; everything else has just been media window dressing and an excuse to spend hundreds of millions of dollars on the appearance of a horse race.
 
2012-02-23 01:15:32 PM  
Coulter says: "Only one candidate is strong on illegal immigration, which is second only to repealing Obamacare as the most important issue facing the nation."

Then, two paragraphs later, she says this: "Conservatives scratch their heads wondering how the NFM can convince millions of unemployed and underemployed Americans paying $3.57 for a gallon of gas that the economy is improving simply by repeatedly saying so."

Well, which is it? Because if Republican really believe that Obamacare and illegal immigration are the most important issues facing the nation, they don't deserve to be in the White House.

Ann seems confused between "Establishment" and "Media".

The political establishment is usually considered to be those politicians in office and the network of people that connect them to their masters - in this case Establishment Republicans serve corporate masters and business interests.

The conservative media includes news and opinion operations such as Fox and talk radio.

It used to be that the Conservative Establishment controlled the Conservative Media, however in recent years the media is trying to control the politicians, and thus you get the rash of teatards elected that don't necessarily toe the establishment line.

One big example of the split is the "illegal immigration" issue - business men like illegals because they don't have to pay them much and they are easy to exploit. Tetards, when they are not totally racist, fear that brown people will suck up resources and rape white women.

You never know what's going to happen between now and November. What if there's some Obama scandal in August and 8% of voters decide to vote R? Republicans should give themselves the best chance to win, no matter how slim it seems now.

Because the President is not (yet) a unitary executive. Who has control of the House matters. Romney would at least shore up Republican downticket seats or minimize the losses. A Santorum candidacy no doubt swings the House back Dem, and likely increases their Senate majority (to say nothing of the curb-stomping he would get in the Presidential Race).

It's always funny to me that people minimize that Obama beat John McCain 365-173 in electoral votes. That's more than 2-to-1. And people actually liked McCain.
