Coulter: Palin’s pretending to run because Newt said she’d get higher speaking fees

Ann Coulter was very wishy washy tonight on Palin. She said she thinks that Palin shouldn’t run because she has much more influence in her current position. However when Hannity cornered her on whether or not she would support Palin, she gave this lame excuse that she just hasn’t thought of Palin running and basically said she might support her. I think she just feels that Palin is a weak candidate.

Also, she kind of slipped this into the discussion as well, that she thinks that Palin is leaving the door open to 2012 because Newt told her she’d get higher speaking fees. Wow, that sounds a bit conspiratorial.



Enjoy!

I wouldn’t have voted for Haley if Palin did not endorse her. She wasn’t even on the radar around here. If Haley is as full of herself as she sounds when talking about what she doesn’t owe Sarah, I won’t vote for her again. She owes Palin everything. She never would have gotten elected without her.

Coulter, Palin, and Bachmann should join forces and start a monthly publication in which they share their snarky, delusional, petty ramblings with their readers — they could call it Harpy’s Bazaar.

Contrary to coulter’s “Nominate Christie or We’ll All Die!” hyperbole (could somebody get her to switch to DECAF ?), I think Christie is certainly one of several good choices that have a real chance of winning the presidency in Nov 2012 – but he’s NOT the only or necessarily the BEST choice in that group. My fear that the “Republicans” will do another NO-CHARACTER, AMNESTY-JOHN mccain and nominate somebody that has no chance of actually winning a national election AND remain true to conservative principles and ideals. Currently, there are a lot of people in that latter group.

Coulter is a DC pundit. I want a true conservative that will cut the spending, cut taxes, drill in the US, not hide that this is GODs country and cut the BS. If Palin runs, or anyone for that matter they will win. The difference with Palin is, I pray, that she will stand up for our forefathers and say audious to earmarks and corruption. It really is not that complicated. Finally, I want a President that will be a leader and stop blaiming predecessors. Conservatism is what made this country great. Don’t go across the aisle and try to negotiate with the left. Screw em. We are in this mess because of liberal BS. Enough already!

Ann, I thought I knew you. Are you a republican first, and conservative 2nd? Seems like it.

That being said, I think this is her honest opinion. Heaven help us if Romney IS the candidate.

The Left would make a punching bag out of Palin. She would be so busy defending herself that she couldn’t get her message out. I agree with Ann that Palin has found her niche in being the thorn in Obama’s side.

That’s just the line the Left wants people to believe. The truth is that Tuscon showed that Palin is probably the only Republican who can survive the onslaught that any Republican candidate is going to face. She’s already faced it and won. She was accused of inciting mass murder. It didn’t work. While I’m sure the mainstream media will not give up in their quest to destroy Palin, and nothing they try will surprise me anymore, the fact is plain now that they have nothing except what they can invent and hope resonates. Think about it. Sarah Palin has now been so thoroughly vetted by the media that they have nothing left to use against her. Nothing real, anyway, except ridicule. That’s a powerful weapon, and her biggest problem with ridicule will come from the Right and not the Left during the primaries. The Left won’t have to do it… Read more »

Cain would match up better against Obama than Palin would. He would also completely obliterate the racial narratives the left has pushed for years.

Palin’s numbers haven’t improved with independents, period! Would they improve if it was a choice only between Obama and Palin? Probably, but would it be enough to win PA, Florida, and Ohio? What about Virginia and North Carolina?

All of this said, if she is still on the ballot on Super Tuesday 2012 and no other “qualified” conservative such as Cain can win I’m voting for her out of pure spite and contempt for the left. I refuse to leave her on the battlefield after all the hell she has been put through.

Newt will definetly run and can not win the election no matter how smart he is. Palin will definetly run also. Christie has stated time after time he will not run. Mitt is in for sure.
Bottom line is we HAVE to get this clown in the white house out of the white house for good.

All I’m hoping is that as we continue marching towards 2012, we don’t have influential people in the republican party choosing our candidate again for us. It always becomes this big game, with comments here and there, and money thrown from the RNC to this candidate, but not that one. Let the actual people of this country decide, please. We don’t need another McCain screwing it up.

The Palin comment isn’t much of a takeaway here. The “speaking fees” comment was a throwaway. Sloppy, fun banter through over-traveled terrain that shouldn’t be taken too seriously.

It’s unfortunate to see Ann Coulter act like a typical woman but I guess everyone has their breaking point when it comes to showing their true colors. No matter how hard you fight it, there are some things you just can’t suppress and with Ann it’s her inner Junior High School Girl. Blech. She fits the mold, though. Blond. Great looking but on the downhill slide of beauty. Getting a little too old to be flirty, but still does it. She’s like almost every woman I’ve ever worked with who just can’t stand a pretty woman with brains. I’m a big Ann Coulter fan and this won’t change that. I love her. I wish she wasn’t following such a predictable path because I really thought she, of all people, would be above that kind of thing. But alas. Oh, well. The only real problem I had with this interview was… Read more »

not sure of the problem here. ann wants christie b/c she thinks he can win. palin is unelectable and i dont see how anyone thinks she would be. newt was an enviro nut job and bounces around like a rino. she didn’t dis rush at all. says he has all the power and influence now so why take a step down etc. her choice would be romney b/c he is the most electable. this is for president not for delaware gov.

O come on people. You’ve never made a comment and had people jump on it and interpret it in twelve different ways from its original thought or meaning? She’s a commentator. She’s obviously been supportive of Palin and doesn’t feel speaking and being paid to speak while demanding the most buck for speaking is a demeaning statement…it’s what she does for a living. Both she and Palin have to make a living and currently it’s by speaking. What’s wrong or demeaning about that? You’re unconsciously (I hope) absorbing the liberal talking points that Palin is trying to make a buck and that’s it is a bad thing. It isn’t. It is the American way if we could all remember that. Would Coulter be wrong to doubt Palin could win a national election and therefore look to a candidate that she feels can and enlist support for him? Tell me you… Read more »

“Christie will saddle up (although he’d still be look upon with suspicion with SoCon voters).”

I don’t look upon Christie with mere suspicion. I learned all I need to know about him from his despicable statements regarding the Ground Zero Mosque. I’m meaner than pissed-off honey badger and carry a grudge longer than a mad Apache. And if the only payback I could ever get on Christie would be to withhold my vote should he run for president, then that would be it. Plenty of reasons to not consider Christie for President- namely that the next R nominee should be the standard-bearer for Conservatism- which Christie isn’t and never will be. But I will never forget his denigration of the GZ Mosque opposition and he will never get my vote. Never.

“She would have to learn all sorts of idiotic things that presidents have to know about.”

If Palin were to run, “perhaps” Ann would support her?

Remember Coulter’s paens to Saint Shirley Sha-raaahd? Of Pigfahd, Pigfahd, Pigfahd fame.

Her support of the thuggish, and obnoxious anti-Conservative GOProud?

Her attack on Farrah and WND as someone else noted.

Coulter’s off the rails. To throw in some cheap bottom-the-barrell swipe that Palin’s only in it for cash? Any cite for that? What the hell is going on here?

Where is the duct tape? A step down? I am not a huge Palin fan, but jeez, to say it would be a step down to become the POTUS, the first female, conservative POTUS? When is being POTUS ever a step down? It’s the highest most coveted job in the world, well, used to be, but still Give Me A Break you gangly, gnarly broad.

Ann makes a boat load of money to do what? Jet set around and run her mouth in between writing books bashing libtards. I guess in her mind it’s an important job, a legend in her own mind. Could care less what she thinks, she needs to go. And Christie is Creepy.

Good grief. she sounded quite sane. Has a different take on some things than Hannity. Libtard? Hugely demeaning? A bit of objective take on things, folks? She doesn’t immediately agree with everything I think, so she’s a knucklehead! Nope, one of our brightest and best.

This is one of the saddest, most pathetic degenerations I’ve had the misfortune of having to bear witness to. She has become a complete RINO. Now, where she was a sought-after speaker, every time she opens her mouth, she hurts the team (http://www.americanthinker.com/2006/06/ann_coulter_hurts_the_cause.html). There’s no way she could be unaware of the fact that she’s endorsing an anti-gun (http://conservativenewjersey.com/chris-christie-a-conservative-myth-part-7), islamonazi-pushing (http://www.jewishworldreview.com/0111/emerson012011.php3), dictator-loving, amnesty shilling (http://hotair.com/archives/2010/06/30/chris-christie-on-immigration-we-need-a-path-to-citizenship/), eco-leftard (http://libertysflame.com/cgi-bin/readart.cgi?ArtNum=13561). Then again, Coulter supports co-opting Conservative ideals of a society, free of social engineering and social liberalism, by bringing gays into the mix. As for her thing with Palin, it sounds like PURE JEALOUSY. Whereas Coulter used to be the glamor girl in the spotlight, Sarah Palin’s almost totally taken it away from her. The crack about speaking fees sounds more, to me, like Ann’s going to have to charge LESS, because she’s finding herself less-and-less in demand, except by RINO gays and… Read more »

Pretty clear that stakes are going in the ground; battle lines are drawn and it’s time to select a GOP candidate for 2012. Ann Coulter is a blonde clown. Her endorsement of Christie completely dilutes her conserv. street cred; please, no more lovefests for naive, untested politicians with an R next to their name; EARN our respect in deeds first, not platitudes and empty rhetoric.

I have never liked Ann Coulter. She’s a showboater. She likes to stir up controversy with the little “verbal bombs” that she drops, and when she’s challenged she gets ruder and louder (if that’s possible) instead of debating with facts. Coulter is what the “South Park” creators would come up with as a caricature of a conservative commentator.

As a New Jersey resident, I want to warn all you Chris Christie fans. Be careful what you wish for. The same tough talk Chistie uses on budget matters will be the same tough talk he uses against conservatives on issues like gun control, illegal immigration or even ObamaCare. He is not the rock rib conservative so many people think he is.

My advice, mimic his style but go with someone else.
