New Ann Coulter Book Rages at GOP
With "Change or Die" Theme

Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard

Original Article

Posted By:SpeedMaster, 10/11/2013 11:23:55 AM

Best-selling conservative author Ann Coulter, who has used her nine books to launch vicious attacks on Democrats, is turning her guns on Republicans in a new book out Monday, calling Florida Sen. Marco Rubio a hypocrite, urging donors freeze contributions to the GOP, and demanding that only governors or senators run for the party’s presidential nomination. Her point in “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3 -- Especially a Republican” is to shake the party out of its doldrums in time for the 2014 and 2016 elections. “Elections matter. We’re trying to make the country a better place. But if our candidates don’t

Comments:
I still think Ann bears some responsibility for her support of Romney as the only "electable" candidate

The Republicans need to know that if Obamacare goes into effect on the first of the year they are not going to be elected officials much beyond the first of 2015.
Romney is not president because not enough of the base thought he would be all that much better than Obama. After all it was Romneycare before it was Obamacare. The same thing is going to be happening to a lot of Republicans in congress. If they are not eliminated in a primary, they are not going to get votes in the general. The lesser of two evils is still evil.

OP, I´m curious to learn who would have been more electable in 2012. A person has to run to be considered, then has to win votes in the primaries to advance to the nomination. None of the others was able to do that. Whether or not anyone is a Romney fan, it´s hard to spot another who would have come closer.

Does anyone really listen to Ann Coulter any more? I am really getting tired of so-called conservatives railing at the Republicans. They never have a good word. The MSM always quotes these slams and those are the only words the lofo voters hear. Then we have the give up and give in congress critters. When was it ever easy to stand up for what you believe?

Establishment Republicans as well as Democrats are enemies of liberty. Both despise the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law. When the Republicans held both houses of Congress AND the White House during the Little Bush administration, they behaved liked drunken sailors with unlimited cash.

Just say "No!" to establishment Republicans. Send no money. Give no support.

There was no one more electable than Romney; I mean there was no Republican that could have been elected.
Between the voter fraud perpetrated by the Regime and covered up by the press, and the gutless campaign orchestrated by the RNC (think Dan Senor aka. Mr. Campbell Brown) it was never a contest.
I would bet that even Reagan would have had a hard time winning. Face it folks as long as the Globalist Establishment Republicans are running the RNC we will never see a President with an R next to his name.
And if anyone disagrees I suggest they re-read Thursdays Most Read Article. We are at the point that fighting fire with fire is no longer good enough, we need full on flame throwers to fight the evil that has taken control of this country.

I voted in every election I could local and national since 1968.
I did my part to vote against Obama and cast it for Mitt Romney also the crackpot Bozo McCain but I will never do that again. The last presidential election might be just that if the elites choose the next ´it´s my turn´ RINO.
I am of the third party mind set now, the Tea Party is my party because there are only two more elections to correct this.
I am also tired of trying to ´one up´ the democrat communist. If they run a woman I don´t believe we should ´one up´ them with ours. Elizabeth Warren will be their next pick. She´s as radical as Obama and Hillary is too old and ugly with plenty of baggage.
Blanket hair Coulter is a blowhard as much as Karl Rove is an elitist. I don´t need either telling me what I need.

Zero beat Romney by roughly 3 million votes. If you think there were not at least 3 million illegal votes, double votes, triple votes, stuffed ballot boxes, etc. cast, then the communist party wants to talk to you about buying some obamacare.

Romney was the most electable candidate? Good God, he couldn´t even beat the worst president in US history, an unabashed marxist and America hater. Any candidate who did more than tilt his head and stand there with his cutsey schoolgirl smile should have been able to pull at least 75% of the popular vote.
If the RNC had spent as much energy trashing Obama as they did trashing anyone who got close to Romney, we might not be living the nightmare we are today.
I know its pointless to rehash last years battles, but this is absurd. The republicans are not listening. They seem satisfied with losing over and over again. We need a 3rd party, made up of real conservatives and libertarians, not these people. They stopped representing my values a long time ago.

Several insist that none were more electable than Romney and they know this er... cuz... well...cuz. Nothing but unsupportable blather. Others insist voter fraud was the culprit. No evidence just ignorant assertion. And finally the conservatives stayed home canard, another dopey slander directed against the most loyal component of the GOP. So what´s going on here.
It´s real simple. The trendy progressive types cooed and gushed over Romney while conservatives warned that he was an empty and unprincipled suit who stood for nothing. Then voters delivered their verdict. Now the Romney sycophants are furiously ducking and dodging, throwing anything and everything against the wall, hoping something will stick so they can escape association w/this looser. How predictable. That the voters would choose the likes of Obama says volumes about their opinion of Romney, a laughable nominee.

Yes there was voter fraud by the Democrats. So Romney supporters should be blaming the party too chicken to ever call it out by name and FIGHT it. Guess what? Pubbies laying down playing dead in how many races now? They finally have let it go so long now that voila - we now have Obama. Don ´t blame those of us who knew what a squish Romney was but did our duty and voted for him anyway.

#2, #3, #6, #10 et al: You and your party have made it abundantly clear that conservative money and votes are welcome, but conservative voices are not. Let me make this perfectly clear, we hear you. We´re getting pretty tired of being told to shut up and play along with the power kabuki, and blamed for every loss by the lukewarm.

You all are making it so much easier for the rest of us to leave the GOP.

#25. Even broken clock has the correct time 2x per day and this time you´re right. Claiming some unknown anybody could have won in ´12 is idle speculation; which is why I never made such an absurd claim. All we know is that Romney was and remains a loser against arguably our worst POTUS in history. Facts are so inconvenient for progressives.

No. 2: Rick Perry, IF the GOP had an effective communications shop. He has one mental slip on national TV and it´s curtains forevermore, while the Oval Office occupant can pontificate about 57 states? Jeepers! And Romney went for the jugular in those primary debates, then showed up in the fall debates offering milk and cookies to his opponent!
As a fellow Texan, you know a federal judge knocked Texas out of the usual primary calendar lineup. A powerful and significant voice silenced by the stroke of a pen!
It does seem the stars were not aligned for the GOP in 2012. We must ask ourselves, why? There is some larger reason and all will be revealed in due time.

I was here for the miserable death march that was the 2012 campaign, & the pro-Mitt posters definitely called him the most electable, but it was much more enthusiastic than just, well, we don´t have anybody better.

There were triumphant proclamations of "Romney´s gonna run, & Romney´s gonna win!" and any post mentioning any of his negatives was promptly denounced. Some even boasted he could win without the conservative vote & dared us to stay home. I didn´t stay home, but I´ve not forgotten how shabbily anyone who didn´t wave the pompoms for Mitt was treated.

#31. Rose, a note from history. In the period proceeding our Revolution, a substantial contingent of the population (some 30%) were Tory sympathizers whose first and only allegiance was to the British Crown. So when the going got tough, during our 8 year struggle, they fled to Canada.
Today, we´re in the grip of another revolution, viz. who upholds the aspirations and ideals of plain and unpretentious people? When the inevitable schism comes, watch these progressive lefties run to their natural home, the D´s. Bet on it!

Scientists believe that over the last two billion years or so, there have been as many as seventeen times that Earth has experienced an Ice Age. They suspect an Ice Age when they see shifts in geological formations that are so severe that the only explanation appears to be glaciers forming and moving large quantities of land from one part of the continent to another part. Each Ice Age is estimated to have lasted for at least 100,000 years, with some lasting millions of years. Each was eventually followed by a period of gradual warming, resulting in the glaciers melting and

One of the hallmarks of the Obama administration is that it is among the most corrupt administrations in living memory. The degree of corruption and thuggery to which many administration members have stooped would make even Boss Tweed of Tammany Hall fame blush. But what’s truly remarkable about the Obama administration is that its corruption is so unabashed. Among the most corrupt functionaries of the Obama regime is Attorney General Eric Holder, who appears to be Obama’s alter ego and enforcer. From day one he let America know that he held most of its citizens in contempt by proclaiming that the American

Issa fired off a personal letter at Cummings, claiming that he and his attorneys were frustrating the fact-finding mission of the Oversight Committee.

A bombshell revelation has brought the IRS scandal to a new level. Judicial Watch has released internal IRS communications revealing that former Tax Exempt Organizations director Lois Lerner was in contact with the Department of Justice (DOJ) regarding whether it was possible to criminally prosecute tax-exempt groups she believed had “lied” about their political activity. Judicial Watch obtained the documents by successfully filing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the IRS in October 2013, following the agency’s stonewall of four FOIA requests dating back to the previous May.

Ann may plead hyperbole, but her sentiment is readily apparent. Among the pearls of wisdom: Carr: “Who are you for, for president right now, Ann?” Coulter: “Um…well, don’t tell’em, but I’m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest; flying out, kidnapping him, and depriving him of sleep, food and water until he agrees to run again.” Carr: “You’re kidding.” Coulter: “No” Carr: “You really want him to run again?”

Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins.

The ultimate party litmus test: given a veto-proof legislature, will Republicans finally start to reduce the scope and size of government? It looks like the answer is no. In 2013, North Carolina was just one of 25 states where Republican governors were given historic opportunity to govern alongside Republican-controlled legislatures. Despite conservative voters’ best hopes, any sensible mandate to restore individual and economic freedom flew out the window when the FY 2013-14 budget was approved, reauthorizing the formerly Democratic state’s blueprint budget with a tragic 2.0-percent increase in general fund appropriations.

The danger is this: In the USA’s upcoming 2014 elections, Republican elites assume that everyone all now agrees that conservatives ‘must’ support non-conservative candidates to win more elections. The GOP is operating on the belief that everyone is on board, simply because insiders have officially decreed it to be so. However, the grassroots in the USA remains unconvinced. Worse, the Republican establishment has no plan for truly healing the actual wounds. Elites want to avoid change more fervently than they do want to win elections. Elites violated trust by advancing liberal policies in the U.S. Congress, but they won’t apologize or

Over the past year or so, Gowdy, a South Carolina Republican congressman, has drawn substantial national attention, winning adulation from Tea Party activists who like his tough questioning in committee hearings. His growing prominence and indisputably Southern demeanor have made him one of the standouts from the 2010 House class. He’s in good company. Gowdy entered the House in the 2010 Tea Party wave along with three other freshman South Carolina Republicans: Tim Scott, Jeff Duncan, and Mick Mulvaney. The four were nicknamed

Russia´s Putin has invaded his neighbor’s sovereign territory. He must and will face serious repercussions for doing so, and the international community must make the price severe. Unless we are willing to go to war for Ukraine—and I believe that would be unwise—Russia without question has the military might and geographic advantage to control the Crimea and the Russian dominated areas of Ukraine. But at what cost? Russia´s stock market is dropping precipitously and their economy is quite dependent on exports that depend on a stable Ukraine.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer.

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Glen Campbell has been suffering from Alzheimer´s for over three years, but the Grammy-winning singer, 78, has recently moved into a facility, PEOPLE has confirmed. "He was moved to an Alzhemier´s facility last week," says a family friend. "I´m not sure what the permanent plan is for him yet. We´ll know more next week." The "Rhinestone Cowboy" crooner first opened up about having Alzheimer´s to PEOPLE in an exclusive 2011 interview. Campbell and his fourth wife, Kim Woolen, decided to go public with the news because Campbell hoped to embark on a final farewell live tour. The couple wanted his

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
