Ann Coulter does a 180
on Chris Christie

American Thinker, by Thomas Lifson

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 3/17/2013 11:40:15 AM

During a twenty minute-plus, highly entertaining speech/comedy routine at CPAC yesterday, Ann Coulter turned against Chris Christie, who was her darling not so long ago. I suppose Ann must now think it was a good thing that the GOP ignored her advice on making Chris Christie its nominee. And imagine if Ann had been so influential that voters had actually followed her advice and elected Christie President!

A 180 on Christie is a whole lot easier than a 360.

But in any case - - the fat is in the fire now.

He is a Democrat disguised as a Republican. I would never vote for him. Ann called it right.

The pundit class should come to lucianne.com and read the comments here for real insight and wisdom. Very many folks here (not me, Im afraid) could see through Christie from the very beginning. Who knew a tub of lard could be so transparent? Well, some here have the xray vision to see through His Unctuousness. Coulter and a few others would do well to monitor our board here and learn.

A wise and prudent decision by one of the University of Michigan Law School´s most distinguished graduates...After all, how does one continue to defend The Garden State´s 55th Chief Executive after he reportedly proclaimed he agreed with the loopy, leftist current Governor of New York on "98% of the issues"?

All northeast Republicans are only one degree off of being a Democrat and will always cave to demands by Democrats. We need to stop nominating liberal Republicans if we want to take back the Presidency.

#1 LOL! actually the fat has been in the fire since he bear hugged Obama after Sandy and told the world what a great job Obama was doing.

There´s room for Chris Christie in our tent. He accomplished something against his own people (labor unions) that we couldn´t do.

He´s popular because LoFo voters just remember the win. He speaks off the cuff which is so refreshing even if he is a jerk. I´m ready for repubs to flatly defend themselves also.

Ann is frustrated as the rest of us are.

Christie has no business at a conservative gathering. He´s not conservative. He´s not presidential material, either. He is great for the Garden State because he can still appeal to the Snookies and the Situations who make up the mindset of the voters there. Yet, he does have some understanding that governance is not about lining your own pockets (that´s the thing that separates him from the Democrats).

So, while I don´t particularly like him. I do think he has done well for NJ and I´d like for him to stay there as governor

I thought George W. was a conservative until I had the benefit of hindsight. If I can forgive myself, I can forgive Ann. I´m sure both men in question are fine fellows. They just aren´t conservative where it counts and where it counts is spending.

Also, I´m sure Ann doesn´t need my forgiveness or give a hoot about having it. Either way, I´m glad she isn´t going to support Christie anymore.

We liked Chris Christie because he seemed to have some thought of getting the budget under New Jersey under control and he wouldn´t be pushed around. However it soon became clear even to him that New Jersey didn´t want to have their budget under control and that in order to survive they had to have lots of Federal dollars coming into their state.

Christie wanted to be governor. He traded his conservative principles for Federal cash. Which means he never had the conservative principles in the first place.

#5, you´re forgiven that you didn´t "see through" Christie earlier.

I did, but that´s because I live in NJ -only a few miles from Christie´s home in Mendham- and I´ve been watching him since his deplorable early political career in the ´90s.

Christie has never been a conservative. His history as a County freeholder was bad enough that he was defeated in the next primary, after only one term.

And if Christie were ever to become a national candidate, he has character issues that would be seized upon by Dems to derail him. (No huge scandal that I´m aware of, but stuff more along the lines of John Kerry´s "do you know who I am" attitude, rather than John Edwards´s creepy infidelity).

Something to be said to this Conservative´s defense. Because Christie came out strong and unafraid to take it into the faces of libs, we began to gather round him. We were in agreement with him when going after schools, teacher´s unions and right there fighting beside him. BUT, as we began to see into his true character, (gun control, immigration, and other unprincipled values) we began to dig a little deeper. No harm in looking; especially when there is time to change opinions. Happy to see/hear that Ann has come to her senses. It must be difficult to write and find that no one is reading the books you authored.

Coulter figured out she was wrong and changed her mind. Christie has not yet figured out he was wrong but there is a possibility he will. The Democrats never figure out they are wrong. If more spending doesn´t work then they spend more. If bigger government doesn´t work they make it bigger. If higher taxes doesn´t work they make them higher.

Cristie is now using Hurricane Sandy as the excuse for his failures.

Everything wrong is Sandy´s fault and the new mission is to recover from Christie.

Guess he thinks the entire state is on the Jersey shore.

Between ANN COULTER´S ignorant fawning over Fat Boy Chrissie and Dick Morris being a total joke....they both completely RUINED any credibility that Fox News wished that they had...since those two idiots, I do not watch anyone, especially Hannity with his boyfriend Beckel (dont forget his ex-boyfried Colmes) on Fox (especially Loofa O´Really?) except for Cavuto....

Dont care what pundits, strategists, or lawyers on Fox think, say, or do....it sure didnt do any good for our side last election, did it? They could ALL use a lesson from this great salon with its wonderful fellow L-Dotters! Wise up Fox News! Competition will soon be on the air (new conservative cable news) this summer, cant wait!

There´s an important cautionary tale here. A person´s true character can only be revealed over time and in observance of their actions, not their statements, in a variety of difficult circumstances. America has developed a disturbing tendency to quickly lurch from one promising candidate to another after minimal time getting to know them.

Obama is a prime example on the left. But truthfully, we are seeing the same kind of too quick falling for candidates on the conservative side too. Christie has now self-vetted himself. But what about Rubio, Cruz, and Rand Paul, just to name a few? I personally like something about all 3, but I´m troubled by how quickly people have stampeded to one or another of them based on one or two speeches or actions.

They may all very well turn out to be the principled, courageous conservatives we want them to be. But let´s make sure we "make haste slowly and carefully" before we anoint one of them.

after reading all of these posts it is sad to say that a lot of people have very low standards for their elected representatives.

honesty, courage and conviction are what we should require from our representatives. there was a lot of that on display at CPAC.

If we don´t believe in gurus and pundits, we are spared a lot of angst when they follow their intellects and emotions, which are probably no stronger or more healthy than ours.

Their flipflops will only send us into apoplexy if we are hanging on their every word as though it was gospel.

#12 - my sentiments exactly. he is the state equivalent of a Low Information Voter - give me free things and I will vote for you and like you.

Ann Coulter is a super star and its too bad some people are turned off by her wit. She makes every dem look like a complete idiot in a 1-on-1 battle. Has she made some bad calls and said some things too quick - sure she has, but who hasn´t.

Republicans had better learn to stop eating their own. I would imagine that the same purists are going to attack Ben Carson when he says the wrong thing.

IMO much of Christie´s problem is self control. He is too emotional. That makes him look good when he stands up to a $90K/year elementary teacher crying about her tough life. OTOH it makes him look idiotic when kissing Obama´s feet for FEMA aid.

good #1.

#7 points out that the NE GOP must live and deal with more liberal voters. Most will do what it takes - good or bad - to stay in office there. As will nearly every pol anywhere.

Principles take second place. Or third. Or don´t matter at all.

Ann Coulter isn´t the only person to be disappointed by a republican politician.
She has a lot of company, including presidents who placed their trust in republicans they appointed to various government positions and judgeships.

It would take a state the size of Texas to hold all the republicans who once carried the hopes of republicans and conservatives only to dash our hopes with a sharp turn to the left.

We could start with republicans appointed to the Supreme Court who joined the left almost as soon as they were sworn in.

Ann is a pundit - she shouldn´t be picking your candidates for you, that is your job. Christie is still the best governor NJ has ever seen in my lifetime. He isn´t a conservative like the ones we have in SC, but Tim Scott isn´t electable in NJ. Nor is Jim DeMint. Conservatism is determined by geography and constituents - to pretend otherwise is to lose.

The ultra conservatives that think Mitt was just not conservative enough might be rethinking the hard line stuff. Rand Paul took the CPAC straw poll and if he manages to be leader of the GOP the democrats are already looking for moderate candidates for 2014.

Bible tells it all--the children of light are less wise to the ways of the world as the children of darkness.

Not that Newt G in 2016 played the children of light role--seems he started the demonization of the rich and it stuck.

Politicians change their stance and positioning, it is only fair that pundits notice and change or intensify support.

You know something? I am real tired of Karl Rove, Chris Christie and now Ann Coulter. Perhaps ANN has realized the error of her ways but she was blind to the traitor Chris Christie for too long and I am afraid she is just "going along to get along" once she realized how wrong she was about Christie. She should have known better long ago.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Yet that’s what Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan and City Council President Brenda Jones are trying to call it in a joint statement meant to play down the unavoidable racial element. Says their statement: Earlier this week, a traffic accident that injured a young boy, David Harris, escalated into a vicious attack on the driver of the vehicle, Steve Utash, who had done the right thing by stopping to check on the boy.

So blares a poster on exhibit at the taxpayer-funded University of Michigan. So far, I have been able to find no protests from the ACLU or other groups that decry religious expression at venues that belong to governmental authorities. The poster is the work of Heather Ault, and is part of a campaign called “4000 years of choice.” Ms. Ault sounds like real charmer and came to her views through a bitter experience:

Many of the comments at various blogs addressing the forced resignation of Brendan Eich emphasize the fact that Mozilla is a private company and can hire or fire whomever they want for any reason. This is partially true. (snip) But an employee cannot be wrongfully terminated in California or terminated on the basis of discrimination, that is, on the basis of age, race, sexual orientation, gender, disability, political affiliation, religion, or national origin.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water. Cliven Bundy and his

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd. But

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

As President Obama spoke of old "wounds” at Fort Hood this week, the White House declined a request from a survivor of the 2009 massacre there to meet with Obama for a few minutes so the veteran could explain face-to-face how he believes the government has mistreated and disrespected the victims of that attack. Staff Sgt. Alonzo Lunsford (ret.) was shot seven times in November 2009 when Army psychiatrist Maj. Nidal Hasan opened fire at Fort Hood, killing 13 people. Despite Hasan’s admission that he carried out the attack on behalf of the Taliban and revelations that he had been

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
