  1. Default Ann Coulter: Don't Blame Romney

    ANN COULTER LETTER

    DON’T BLAME ROMNEY

    By: Ann Coulter
    11/7/2012 06:12 PM

    We spent billions of dollars and billions of words on an election to switch from President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House to President Obama, a Democratic Senate and a Republican House.Every election predictor was wrong, except one: Incumbents usually win.Republicans have taken out a sitting president only once in the last century, and that was in 1980 when Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter. Sadly, Reagan’s record remains secure.
    The Democrats ran up against the incumbency problem in 2004. The landslide election for Democrats in 2006 suggests that Americans were not thrilled with Republicans around the middle of the last decade. And yet in 2004, President George W. Bush beat John Kerry more handily than Obama edged past Romney this week.

    Democratic candidate John Kerry won 8 million more votes than Al Gore did in 2000, and he still couldn’t win. All the Democrats’ money, media, Bush Derangement Syndrome and even a demoralized conservative base couldn’t trump the power of incumbency in 2004.

    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.

    But I was wrong. 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.

    Part of the reason incumbents win is that they aren’t forced to spend half the election year being battered in primaries. Obama started running anti-Romney ads in Ohio before the Republican primaries were even over. Noticeably, Romney’s negatives were sky-high in Ohio, but not in demographically similar states like Pennsylvania.

    One of Obama’s first acts in office was to bail out the auto industry to help him in states he’d need in the upper Midwest, such as Michigan and Ohio. He visited Ohio nearly 50 times, while not visiting lots of other states even once. Obama was working Ohio from the moment he became president. Meanwhile, Romney didn’t wrap up the primaries until the end of May.

    A little less time beating up our candidate in the primaries so that he could have started campaigning earlier would have helped. In this regard, please remember that no mere House member is ever going to be elected president. Most of them harm their political careers by running. (Where’s Thaddeus McCotter these days? Michele Bachmann is fighting for her political life.

    Please stop running. You’re distracting us from settling on an actual nominee.

    No one can be blamed for the hurricane that took the news off the election, abruptly halting Romney’s momentum, but Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock can be blamed on two very specific people: Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock.

    The last two weeks of the campaign were consumed with discussions of women’s “reproductive rights,” not because of anything Romney did, but because these two idiots decided to come out against abortion in the case of rape and incest.

    After all the hard work intelligent pro-lifers have done in changing the public’s mind about a subject the public would rather not think about at all, these purist grandstanders came along and announced insane positions with no practical purpose whatsoever, other than showing off.

    While pro-lifers in the trenches have been pushing the abortion positions where 90 percent of the country agrees with us — such as bans on partial birth abortion, and parental and spousal notification laws — Akin and Mourdock decided to leap straight to the other end of the spectrum and argue for abortion positions that less than 1 percent of the nation agrees with.

    In order to be pro-life badasses, they gave up two easy-win Republican Senate seats.

    No law is ever going to require a woman to bear the child of her rapist. Yes, it’s every bit as much a life as an unborn child that is not the product of rape. But sentient human beings are capable of drawing gradations along a line.

    Just because I need iron to live doesn’t mean I have to accept 100,000 milligrams, which will kill me. If we give the guy who passed bad checks a prison furlough, that doesn’t mean we have to give one to Willie Horton. I like a tablespoon of sugar in my coffee, but not a pound.

    The overwhelming majority of people — including me — are going to say the law shouldn’t force someone who has been raped to carry the child. On the other hand, abortion should be illegal in most other cases.

    Is that so hard for Republicans to say?

    Purist conservatives are like idiot hipsters who can’t like a band that’s popular. They believe that a group with any kind of a following can’t be a good band, 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.

    It was the same thing with purist libertarian Barry Goldwater, who — as you will read in my book, “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From the Seventies to Obama” — nearly destroyed the Republican Party with his pointless pursuit of libertarian perfection in his vote against the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

    I like a band that sells NO albums because it proves they have too much integrity to sell out.
    We have a country to save. And just as the laws of elections generally mean the incumbent president wins, they also mean the party out of the White House typically stages a big comeback in midterm elections. BIG. Don’t blow it with purist showoffs next time, Republicans.

    Ann Coulter hits the nail on the head.

    Mitt Romney was a very good candidate, probably the most competent man ever fielded by the Republican party to solve the problems at hand. With his business acumen of turning around unprofitable businesses, he could have saved our nation from the fiscal cliff we are heading towards.

    But Obama played it smart. He used his billions of dollars of money he got from Hollywood and his Wall Street friends to smear Romney and make him seem like an "evil capitalist" who "oursourced jobs to China" and killed a woman who died of cancer.

    All the best Republicans waited this election out because they did not want to go up against an incumbent. I question that decision. It was every Republican's duty as an American to do all he can to unseat this un-American President. Jeb Bush, Bobby Jindal, and Marco Rubio should have come forward when their nation needed them.

    But we will take it in 2016. By that time, Obama will be the most unpopular President of all time, and the American people will be weary of the Democrats and their high taxes and runaway spending.

    With respect, sir, has it occurred to you that Annorexia Coulter is trying to protect her own reputation? She spread her legs for Romney while there were still plenty of more conservative candidates in the primaries.
    Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel
    St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan, and all the evil spirits, who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

    Yes romney was a good candidate and he led in the polls a week prior to the election. Then Christie stabbed him in the back and gave obozo a boost and that was that.

    I think Romney would have made a good President and turned this economy around. But I disagree with Ann Coulter. He didn't give enough information to what he would do as President. He was caught twice making stupid remarks that the Left used against him quite effectively. One about the 47% that weren't paying taxes and the other about closing Jeep plants and shipping them to China. I don't think he explained his stand on the bailout of GM and Chrysler enough. Those mistakes cost him at least Ohio and Michigan and more.

    Republicans screwed up too. They pushed hard to get rid of Obama care, but didn't realize that health care was very important to millions of Americans and never explained the Republican plan for health care. They threw away a chance to rake in millions of votes on that issue alone.

    I think Republicans need to rethink their stand on abortion. There should be some good reasons to have one. Like saving the life of a mother, rape.

    It's a shame, the Left had their crap together in both these last two Presidential elections and the Right didn't.
    Beam me up Scottie, no intelligent life down here.

    Ann Coulter is a (*)(*)(*)(*)ing retard and this proves it. That any Republican could back Romney is just partisanship. Seriously that's it, the man is a total populist politician who would do anything to get voted. The next 4 years will be quite similar to what he would have done anyway.
    If you support the NSA and domestic spying, the NDAA and the extrajudicial killing of US citizens overseas, the PATRIOT Act and the erosion of our rights it has caused, the TSA and the security theater it performs, and the militarization of our police and their lack of accountability, then you are a bigger threat to our freedom and way of life than any of the terrorist organizations that these items were enacted to fight could ever be.
