If you want to out a face and a voice to the Republican Elite, just tune in to Ann Coulter’s “analysis” of the Republican Primary Season. On Fox and Friends this morning, instead of blaming Romney for his poor showing in South Carolina for his poor showing this week at the debates and his total incompetence in handling his own tax disclosure, she blames Romney’s defeat on MISGUIDED PRIORITIES OF SOUTH CAROLINA VOTERS. Wow, Ann, take a page out of the Obama playbook blaming everyone except yourself and your candidate for their own failure? Maybe you, Romney and the rest of the Republican Elite should take stock of what you and Romney did wrong!
Instead of introspection and an honest post-mortem of the SC election, Ann defended Romney’s strategy by saying, “No, he’s doing fine,”. Really Anne? He lost in Iowa and South Carolina after being deemed the Republican 2012 King by you and your fellow elites. He has used his Super PACs to demonize his opponents with a scorched earth approach to political ads.
Coulter went on to say: “This is not going be the electorate in the fall. I am pretty sure we’ll get everyone who voted for McCain — since no one voted for McCain because we liked McCain — it was to stop Obama. We have those voters.” Let me see if I get her logic:
- The Republicans ran another insider pick in 2008, McCain, and we lost;
- Romney is the only one who can defeat Obama;
- The McCain voters will be ready to support Romney in the November election;
- Ergo we have to stop relating to candidates we like and support Romney as he is the only conservative solution.
Earth to Ann: Romney hasn’t broken the 30% barrier with voters yet except for his adopted home state of New Hampshire. Even there, he only polled at 39%! If Santorum had not been in the race in SC, Gingrich most likely would have ended up in the 50% range.
You may think “us hicks and dummies” can only relate to cute soundbites or snide attacks at the media by one of OUR candidates but you are dead wrong. We are pissed off at losing to Obama in 2008 because the Republican Elite shoved McCain down our throats and we now face the front door of socialism because of that elite coronation.
You think we overlooked Newt’s marital failures but we did not. These failures have been vetted over and over again and we believe Newt when he says he takes responsibility for those failures and has asked forgiveness from HE who counts. You now try to paint the SC voters as returning to their Southern Democrat roots! I could not have made up what you said this AM so here are your own words:
“I think South Carolina is going back to its Democratic roots,” she said. “I mean, to not care about that, that’s the position of the Democratic Party. The arguments I hear on behalf of Gingrich on this is we heard for two solid years about Bill Clinton. I never thought I would hear conservative make those arguments. I promise you, if Mitt Romney or Rick Santorum have cheated on two wives — that we know, the open marriage thing is the only thing he contests, we know he cheated on two wives — I wouldn’t supporting Mitt Romney. I wouldn’t support Rick Santorum.”
We stood by when the media lynched Herman Cain and the Republican elites stood on the sidelines adding their own snide remarks that helped lead to his demise. No more…
Earth to Ann: We don’t care what you, the Republican Elites, the Elite Media, and the Bush clan think about this election. God willing, we will pick our own candidate this time. We did a good job cleaning house in 2010 without your help and we will continue to do so in 2012…
