Don’t blame Romney
Human Events, by Ann Coulter

Original Article

Posted By:javaboy, 11/7/2012 6:48:22 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

Christie is the Benedict Arnold of the republican party. About 15% of exit- polled voters said he and the President Zero (I have taken a vow never to write his name ever again) where Zero hugged some white ladies and beat it out of town, caused them to vote for Zero. Suggesting that Christie had to give that tongue bath to Zero, in order to get federal aid is absolute nonsense. Christie knew exactly what he was doing.

Blame the liberal media.

They are supposed to be the referee, but instead have become the cheerleaders for the democrats.

"Romney was the perfect candidate, and he was the president this country needed right now."

I'm still grappling with the fact that we won't have him.

Indeed, Romney is one of the best presidential candidates the Republicans have ever fielded.

Yes. He is the definition of a good gentleman. His loss has made me feel depressed in a way McCain's did not, although I admired McCain a lot.

Leaders take the blame for failure. The Romney campaign, with help from Ann's idol "Charlie Crist" Christie, blew it. Don't blame anyone else but yourselves.

I blame the media, the American electorate and republicans in general. Republicans did not get out and vote. Fewer republicans voted in this election than in 2008. Republican voters also failed.

And....the Republican party failed to lay the groundwork to educate the electorate on the issues. The GOP should do like the DNC does. Assume that the electorate is stupid and proceed accordingly.

I've got an idea. Let's kill off the GOP, all join the Democratic Party, and then run our candidates during the Democratic primary. The media wouldn't know what to do or who to attack. The stupid Democratic voters would probably split their ballots somewhat. And we conservatives might actually win a big election. Who cares what party we belong to as long as we win...?

As crazy as this sounds, I actually like this idea.

Mitt Romney is a decent and honest man and I don't blame him. I don't feel the resentment towards him like I did (and still do) towards John McCain in 2008. I think it is because Mitt is a successful businessman, not a career politician. And I really think he believed in the America I believed in-- the city on a hill that is now in ruins. I felt much more connected to him because of that. Sadly, this race was decided long before it was run. Deep down, I knew that. But I'm still in shock none the less.

Congratulations, trailer trash, Occupy creeps, housing project thugs and mothers, tenured communists, slackers, media liars, and entertainment twits. You won.

The President of the United States will be no better in character, no more capable or moral than you are. He's one of you in all the common ways. As a bonus, you get Joe Biden again... as non-threatening to an inferiority complex as you are likely to find.

OK-I've re-thought Ann a bit. She was (and is) wrong about Christie. Christie is a traitor. But she is right about Romney. Count me among the depressed that we missed the chance to have such a fine person as our President. The real problem with democracy isn't that people start voting themselves government handouts. It's that they can no longer distinguish good from bad or right from wrong. We all have to be "equal"--gay marriage, equal pay for "equal" work, women's right to "choose" (so they can have sex without consequences, like men), tax the rich (it's unfair that some have more than others), universal health care, etc. Didn't Plato predict this would happen in a democracy?

No. Romney lost this election, and the Republican Party did everything they could to help, starting with engaging the likes of faux conservative Romney.

They enabled Boy-Boy instead of crushing him as they should have simply because they are nothing but RHINOS, socialist sucking frauds, infiltrators into the party, determined to destroy the party (which they have), and turn America into a third world ghetto with the likes of Florida sowing the seeds of their own destruction right out of 1935.

America is not divided in exactly half, it's being lied as being split in half. America has been conned into being "ruled" by a minority whose interests are not those of Americans.

By the way, shut up Ann.

Of course, you're going to write this, Ann. You pushed him on us from day one. He was the only candidate that could possibly win, you said. Yet 2 million conservatives stayed home, Ann. 2 million. Maybe more, since some stayed home when McCain was forced on us last time. Dole is another teachable moment.

Why are you so frightened of a true conservative candidate, Ann? You are supposedly so fearless -- why?

Obama won't be on the ballot two years from now. 2014 will be exactly like 2010.

Ann Coulter is right. This Country will be much worse off for not electing Mitt Romney President..The Takers win, WE lose. BTW, it really shouldn't be surprising that many who are willing to attack Mitt Romney, Ann Coulter, Karl Rove or anyone else they disagree with and whine they had to "hold their nose" to vote for Mitt Romney are doing the old happy dance and "I told you so" boogie. IMO, better they should have just voted for obama and spared us their sought after sympathy from Romney supporters, who gladly voted for him! Personally, I am sick and tired of the circular firing squad that some seem to enjoy using after every election. Count me out.

Pulling myself briefly out of 'slough of despond' one thing I have concluded is that the voter still does not connect our current malaise with Obama. Fair enough, the house price drop crisis is still very much with us and it originated from the unholy alliance of Bush and the Congressional Dems.

However, two - or at most four years from now - even Northwest eco-yuppies will see what an over-regulated economy does to one's pocketbook. And Obamacare will surely create havoc beyond even what current Cassandras predict.

Global average temperature has been flat for a decade. But frightening myths about global warming continue. We’re told there are more hurricanes now. We’re told that hurricanes are stronger. But the National Hurricane Center says it isn’t so. Meteorologist Maria Molina told me it’s not surprising that climatologists assumed hurricanes would get worse. “Hurricanes need warm ocean waters,” but it turns out that “hurricanes are a lot more complicated than just warm ocean waters.” Computer models have long predicted nasty effects from our production of greenhouse gasses. But the nasty effects have not appeared. As far as hurricanes, more hit the United States

Blue-collar workers, especially those connected with labor unions who mine coal, drill for oil and gas, build pipelines, and toil in all those related areas of genuine economic activity, must be appalled. Barack Obama won re-election largely on the willingness of those types of unions to put aside their doubts about his real commitment to economic growth and to turn out by a two-to-one margin for him. That was decisive in states with large industrial unions: Ohio (18 electoral votes), Pennsylvania (20 electoral votes), Iowa (6 electoral votes), New Hampshire (4 electoral votes), and Wisconsin (10 electoral votes).

A meticulous new analysis examines the benefits of government-administered socialism among a representative cross section of individuals. It is an insightful departure from the usual studies of socialism that analyze only collective benefits to society using statistics about such things as income quartiles and poverty levels. The new study is 27 pages and can be accessed as a PDF file via this link. As its author, I´ll summarize the results here. Julia, the president´s comic book heroine, is used as the baseline.

We are being played; it´s time we learned the game. Conservatives have their Constitution. Progressives have their Narrative. The current battle for America is between these two concepts, and each side uses different rules to fight it. One set of rules is consistent with an unchanging objective: limited government and individual freedoms. The other side´s rules are as fickle as their goals, which are never fully disclosed beyond the equivocal references to fairness and hyphenated forms of justice.

The International Telecommunications Union (ITU), an imprint of the UN, is holding its World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT) from December 3-14, 2012. The stated purpose of the WCIT is to update the UN´s "global treaty" on telecommunications to deal more directly and comprehensively with the internet. Knowing who controls the UN, it is not hard to see that a primary aim of the updated "treaty" will be to give credence to the regulation and monitoring of online activity in ways that are desirable to the (authoritarian) majority of member states.

The United States will not reverse its descent into the abyss of financial and societal bankruptcy until the current political and governing establishment is replaced. That will not happen until the American people, who have been deliberately ill-educated and deceived, experience first-hand the early stages of the turmoil and suffering extant in Europe and elsewhere. While professing to care for the interests of the average person, the underlying motivation for the vast majority of the governing class or Establishment is first and foremost self-aggrandizement and the acquisition of wealth.

Were the average Republican asked for a succinct statement of his views on taxation, he or she might respond thus: “U.S. tax rates are too high for the world we must compete in. The tax burden — federal, state, local, together — is too heavy. We need to cut tax rates to free up our private and productive sector and pull this economy out of the ditch.” This core conviction holds the party together. Yet today the leadership is about to abandon this conviction to sign on to higher tax rates or revenues, while the economy is nearing stall speed.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Mrs. Pelosi told reporters of the president’s gift after having lunch with Mr. Obama at the White House. The president met with the pope last week at the Vatican. “I was happy to receive a rosary blessed by Pope Francis,” she said. “It means a great deal to me.” Last year, a Vatican official in Rome said that Mrs. Pelosi should be denied communion. “This is a person who obstinately,

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.
