IOWA SHOWS REPUBLICANS DETERMINED TO BEAT OBAMAJanuary 4, 2012It's been a mixed week for Mitt Romney's campaign. On one hand, Romney won Iowa, but on the other, he was endorsed by John McCain.
Until the first actual votes were cast Tuesday night, it appeared as if some elements of the Republican Party were becoming the mirror image of a liberal mob.
The wild swings -- at least in the polls -- from one populist right-winger to another suggested that some Republicans were determined to change the meaning of "conservative" from "normal person who wants to protect what's best in mainstream America" to "perpetually indignant, restless carper against everything, obsessed with symbolic issues, determined to punish the country for its impurities."
Some Republicans, we were led to believe, would only be satisfied with angry denunciations of Obama as a Kenyan colonialist and demands for Barack Obama's birth certificate -- without ever spending five minutes of calm contemplation to see that he had already produced it.
And if there's anyplace for a zealot to shine, it's in a caucus state like Iowa.
But Romney won -- in a razor-close finish with another plausible candidate, Rick Santorum.
The reason the Iowa caucuses rarely produce the party's eventual nominee is not because Iowans are wacky white Christians, as some in the media have claimed, but because caucuses are ridiculous ways to choose a presidential candidate. It is a process that empowers the pushy and loud, much like a Manhattan co-op board meeting, but, unfortunately, not like anything envisioned by our founding fathers.
Instead of arguing for hours in public with partisans in order to cast a ballot, voters are supposed to put on their shoes, fight off the Black Panthers on the way to their precincts, vote in private and go home.
So the fact that the Iowa caucuses avoided giving the gold to Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul or some other sure-to-lose candidate shows that Republicans are dead serious about beating Obama this fall. Even in Iowa, the only Republican with a chance of doing that won. Read More »
Early menopause. Hot flashes. The broad has lost her freakin’ mind.
how long before she starts a leftest website...
maybe ... The CoulterPost?
No, then I might mistake her for Maureen Dowd.
Sorry Ann. You done screwed the pooch. And lost a reader.
(I posted this without reading the article :)
It depends on your definition of "win". If it means something other than "received the most votes", then yes.
These RINOs like Ann Coulter are so eager to replace the devil they know(Obama) with another devil they know(Romney).
Were you referring only to YouTube videos and the commenters there, or to FR?
If you were not referring to death threats on FR, my apologies, that’s how it read at first.
Ready to throw me into the bugzapper were ya?
SHUT UP, ANN, YOU RINO LOVER!
What the hell is the matter with Ann Coulter? It's as if, about six months ago, she took a DNA pill and turned into somebody else -- Muffy from New Haven or something.
What is up with this woman? She's writing as if she's lost her mind. Reminds me of David Brock -- but that was blackmail by the Klintonx, in particular Hildebeast.
Annie has truly ‘Jumped the Shark”.
That list shows Bush43 and Ford as the only two nominees in a non-incumbent year to win Iowa. Reagan, Bush41, Dole, and McCain all lost Iowa the year they got the nomination.
I have come to despise coulter. She’s just another mainline RINO scumbag.
- NEWT HELPED FORMULATE CHRISTMAS December 21, 2011Every few years, heinous Democratic policies -- abortion, gay marriage, affirmative action, Hillarycare, Obamacare, to name a few -- compel previously uninvolved Americans to leap into politics. This is great, except for two things: (1) We have to get heinous Democratic policies first; and (2) newcomers have short memories, sometimes no memories at all. The second point is the only possible explanation for why some conservatives seem to view Newt Gingrich as the anti-Establishment outsider who will shake up Washington. Newly active right-wingers would do well to spend a little more time quietly...
LOL buddy you are indeed A Great Person!
