WHO WOULDN'T ENJOY FIRING THESE PEOPLE?
Anncoulter.com ^ | 1/11/12 | Ann Coulter

Posted on 01/11/2012 2:16:19 PM PST by Recovering_Democrat

Earlier this week, Mitt Romney got into trouble for saying, "I like being able to fire people who provide services to me." To comprehend why the political class reacted as if Romney had just praised Hitler, you must understand that his critics live in a world in which no one can ever be fired -- a world known as "the government."

Does she think she’ll be big again if Romney is elected?

Ann the RINO defending Willard the pro-TARPing Liberal/Vulture.

So, Annie the Willard apologist..

Why should American taxpayers have to be forced to pay for Willard’s business incompetence and greed?

Workers were denied the severance pay and health insurance they’d been promised, and their pension benefits were cut..

What’s more, a FEDERAL GOVERNMENT insurance agency had to PONY UP $44 MILLION TO BAIL OUT the company’s underfunded pension plan.

Nevertheless, Bain profited on the deal, receiving $12 million on its $8 million initial investment and at least $4.5 million in consulting fees.

http://legalinsurrection.com/2012/01/bain-drip-drip-drip/

The Wall Street Journal analysis is devastating for Willard the Vulture/Lib at Bain..

Adding insult to injury, Bain would hide its profits in tax havens, not even paying the rate it was supposed to on the profits it made laying off workers.

Let’s see how the taxpayers feel about bailing out these companies’ pension funds and receiving no tax money back from Bain. Let’s let the people decide what they think of bailing out Romney.

Bottom line again: Why should American taxpayers have to be forced to pay for Willard’s business incompetence and greed?

Ann claims she’s a conservative. Yet supports RINOs like Romney and Christie. While trashing Sarah Palin.

I have no use for Ann any longer.

Mann Coulter understands perfectly well how this will be construed.

Coulter's writings often go out of the way to tweak and upset people to cause a reaction. After that, it's claimed the readers "don't get it," when it was by design.

Mann can't feign outrage or dismay over this latest reaction.

Here’s the irony:

Her anecdotes are good arguments against ObamaCare,

but nominating Willard will deprive the GOP of its strongest principled argument AGAINST ObamaCare. (What are we left with? “It’s fine for STATES to force you to buy insurance, just not the FEDS.”)

Which would imply that if Massachusetts wanted to compel its citizens to buy a box of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes each week, it could also do so, an asinine policy if not banned by Massachusetts’ constitution. Where are all these ballyhooed privacy rights coming in? What if I preferred store brand corn flakes? What if I don’t want the state doctors on my body?

That's one gargantuan difference with "Romneycare" right there: If you don't like what your insurer is doing in Massachusetts, you can get a new one.

No, Ann. Or "not for long." Insurers are gradually heading for the exits in Massachusetts because their costs are up, yet the state bureaucrats are denying the insurers' requests to make commensurate increases in their premiums. The insurers are doing the math and acting accordingly. Soon there will be only one insurer, namely the government -- just as will occur over a decade or so with ObamaCare.

Ann Coulter is actually right here. And so is Mitt Romney. A recession in the DC area would be a very good thing for the country.

Whether Obama Lite policies would actually achieve it, however, is an entirely different matter.

Ayup.

Why, why, why did Herman Cain have to get into such trouble? Perhaps he had to do layoffs at Godfather’s too (some managers got offers they couldn’t refuse?) but the result was a completely sound company which exists to this day. This sounds like heaven next to Bain.

Agreed. Of course, I agree that the FEDERAL government cannot use the Commerce Clause to mandate such things. But just because that PARTICULAR argument doesn’t apply to the states, does not mean such a mandate is good policy. (I can’t speak to whether it’s barred by that state’s constitution. I can confidently say that John Adams, who wrote it, probably would be horrified to see it applied in that way.)

Oh, and no taxpayer bailout for Godfather’s.

Herman Cain was too much of a soft touch for the ladies. IMHO. Losers attached themselves to him with fantasies he could never fulfill, but like a good hearted guy (if not the wisest in the world) he helped the losers out. I don’t think there ever was any illicit sex.

I truly wish Perry had done better too. He was my guy, then by installments he lost me. What finally tore it for me was the Bain bashing stuff. (Maybe the reason Perry is so seemingly aghast at closures/ layoffs is that they’re SO RARE IN TEXAS. But he still lost me.)

If Fonzie can achieve infamy for jumping the shark, then Mitt surely deserves infamy for hosing the dog. Bain is French for bath. Punsters have at it.

I read the WSJ article on Bain, as I am a subscriber. The WSJ did not portray it as devastating...it was a rather balanced mix....they did not say he was the greatest investor, but they did not portray him as a bumbler like Hussein either.

Ann Coulter makes some valid points about the potential horrors of ObamaCare.

Too bad she uses those points to defend Mitt Romney and RomneyCare. It saddened me to realize that the feisty Ann Coulter is a member-in-good-standing of the GOP establishment that wants Romney as 'our' candidate so he can 'have his turn', gracefully lose to Obama and, they mistakenly believe, keep the Washington Beltway power/money game running as usual. It saddens me but also angers me that a public figure that I once thought was a defender of conservative values is nothing more than an opportunist that thinks backing the Republican establishment candidate will somehow be a benefit to her.

Yes, I realize that Coulter may actually believe that Mitt Romney is the very best Republican alternative to Obama and that he can win the election, but even if that were true - and I doubt it is - her judgement has to be questioned, if not her integrity. I assume Ann Coulter's career as a writer, columnist and TV commentator will soon disintegrate as her pushing non-conservative candidates (Chris Christie, Mitt Romney) has become quite well-known (and resented) in conservative circles. Liberals already hate her guts so who is Ann Coulter's audience, now? Career suicide and a waste of talent on unworthy people such as Romney and a corrupt political entity, the Republican establishment. Too bad but her choice.

What saddens me are people who scream vitriolic invective at someone who disagrees which Republican is the best choice.

Who do you support, and why? Coulter’s choice, however unpopular, is bolstered by her reasoning—it may be faulty, but it is offered.

All I often see around here are screeds of anger against Romney and those who think he should be the nominee.

Jim Robinson, thank God, while unabashedly anti-Romney, has not banned Coulter’s columns or others from the board...at least it is stuff worth discussing.

So Jim, who should I, as an undecided voter in the Florida primary, vote for, and why? I already know who you think I should vote against.

Perry has an impressive record in Texas. On paper he is probably the most experienced and qualified candidate in the field. I supported him when he entered the race. I wish he had done better. His debate performances early on were awful, but he has improved somewhat. It is clear he is not the best communicator, but I still had hoped he might continue improving as a candidate and emerge. But now with this occupywallstreet shtick he’s got going with the “vulture capitalism”, well, Perry has completely lost me. Sorry, but the guy will be out of the race after South Carolina. He is not going to win over conservatives with this leftwing sounding nonsense. I assume he knows better but is just desperate, but it is really pathetic hearing Perry talk like this. Just really sad.

Hey, you are not going to get any argument from me. I still love Coulter. I don't throw people under the bus because I disagree with them on a few issues. I have most of Coulter's books and always look forward to hearing her on the radio and seeing her on TV.

The quote about firing people was taken wholly out of context and really was just a typical MSM hit on a Republican. He clearly was saying he liked having the freedom to “fire” service providers who provide lousy service, for example insurance companies. It had nothing to do with firing employees. Ann is right about this one. You don’t have to be a Romney supporter (and I’m not) to call them out on this one.

Jim Robinson, thank God, while unabashedly anti-Romney, has not banned Coulter’s columns or others from the board...at least it is stuff worth discussing.

I never said that it wasn't. I simply offered my negative opinion of Ann Coulter's backing of Romney after stating that she had raised some valid points. Apparently you overlooked that part of my post.

So Jim, who should I, as an undecided voter in the Florida primary, vote for, and why? I already know who you think I should vote against.

Thanks for asking.

I suggest you vote for Rick Santorum because while not the 99.9/10 'pure' conservative some insist on (an individual that has never and will never exist) Rick is a consistent conservative with solid conservative moral values. He is a serious yet affable guy and yes, I believe he can beat Obama. In fact, I believe that a potted plant could beat Obama, despite the rosy predictions of an Obama election day triumph we get from the leftmedia and the ridiculous claims from the Republican 'establishment' that only a 'moderate' (translation: quasi-liberal) can possibly defeat Barack Obama. Newt Gingrich is too angry and too associated with the corrupt Washington beltway establishment as well as being too mercurial in nature, Rick Perry doesn't have the gravitas or the political acumen, Jon Huntsman is invisible to most voters and Ron Paul is just a distraction from reality. Vote for Santorum.

How's that?
