Don’t blame Romney, blame Ann Coulter
Posted by americana83 on November 13, 2012
If there is an Obama girl parallel for Romney this election cycle, it was definitely Ann Coulter. Even now, she refuses to assign any blame to Mitt Romney, blaming everyone else, attacking pro-life senators and stubbornly refusing to see the progressive socialist that was Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts record. Think I’m wrong dubbing her “ObamaGirl 2012,” just look at this (All quotes unless otherwise noted are from this article on the DailyCaller:
Romney was the perfect candidate, and he was the president this country needed right now. It’s less disheartening that a president who wrecked American health care, quadrupled gas prices, added $6 trillion to the national debt and gave us an 8 percent unemployment rate can squeak out re-election than that America will never have Romney as our president.
Indeed, Romney is one of the best presidential candidates the Republicans have ever fielded. Blaming the candidate may be fun, but it’s delusional and won’t help us avoid making the same mistakes in the future.
What a steaming load of fan boy drivel. If the best presidential candidate the republicans have ever fielded is one that foisted pre-Obama ObamaCare on the masses, complete with contraception and coverage mandates, approve so-called assault weapons bans, decreed homosexual marriage by executive order, then there must be two democrat parties. Romney is probably one of the WORST republican candidates ever fielded, because all his positions and attacks were blunted by his own record. If he pointed and shouted too loudly against things like ObamaCare and global warming, he would have had a dozen fingers pointing back at him. Oh, wait, that did happen. And the RINO sellout abandoned his rhetoric and returned to his record praising the parts of “healthcare reform” he wanted to keep, essentially all the free handouts except maybe the mandate, and even that is dubious since he has no qualms and once called his own tyrannical project a “model for the nation,” a phrase he conveniently omitted from a reissue of one of his books.
She did have a brief love affair with another Obama embracing, anti-coal, top down RINO:
After supporting Mitt Romney in 2008, some of you may recall, I ran off with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie midway through Obama’s first term for precisely that reason: The near-impossibility of beating an incumbent president. Christie seemed like the kind of once-in-a-lifetime star who could pull a Reagan upset against an incumbent president.
She then opines:
Obama started running anti-Romney ads in Ohio before the Republican primaries were even over.
Maybe that’s because Romney was who Obama wanted to run against. People believed Obama feared Romney! Laugh out loud! Obama wanted a spineless, feckless opportunistic etch-a-sketch opponent, and Romney was just the man for the job. The perfect candidate, if you will. Then she complains about VETTING! Yes, Ann doesn’t want people vetting aka “beating up on our candidate” before he was even the candidate! Isn’t that kind of the point of a primary? Would Ann prefer our candidate be annointed by some all-knowing vanguard of the people like, say, herself?
A little less time beating up our candidate in the primaries so that he could have started campaigning earlier would have helped.
The single most important issue in this election is ending the national nightmare of Obamacare. If Obamacare is not stopped, it will permanently change the political culture of this country. There will be no going back. America will become a less productive, less wealthy nation. What wealth remains will have to be plowed into Obamacare — to the delight only of the tens of thousands of government bureaucrats administering it.
Purist conservatives are like idiot hipsters who can’t like a band that’s popular…. just as show-off social conservatives consider it a mark of integrity that their candidates — Akin, Mourdock, Sharron Angle, Christine O’Donnell — take wildly unpopular positions and lose elections.
