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!

The recent standoff at the Bundy ranch in Nevada has taught us many lessons, but the most important one was missed. We learned that the government will do anything to private citizens in order to grab land and private property either under the guise of protecting an “endangered” desert tortoise that is actually overpopulated, or getting rid of “feral” and destructive “trespassing cattle” grazing the land for generations, cattle that are in the way of developing a $5 billion Chinese solar panel plant (ENN), and the exploitation of rare earth elements in the larger adjacent area.

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

The back-and-forth drama on the House Oversight Committee has gotten heated over the past few months. Last month, Elijah Cummings threw a fit when Issa shut down a hearing after retired IRS Director Lois Lerner plead the Fifth Amendment. 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.

During the debates surrounding the adoption of the Constitution by the several states, one commentator observed that "the government should be so small that it doesn´t matter who wins." Well, the government is no longer small, and this year, in Virginia´s Seventh Congressional District, it matters very much who wins. Republicans are not the only people in this country who are dismayed at the collapse of conviction and principle in the party’s national establishment.

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

Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said. (Video) Reid noted that most cattlemen pay their taxes, pay their fees, and follow

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what
