Ann Coulter: We have no choice
but to vote for these Republicans,
including the crap-ass ones

Hot Air, by Allahpundit

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/13/2014 11:44:32 AM

An electrifying midterm rallying cry on a slow summer news day. Boehner, incidentally, isn’t one of the crappy-asses, she says. She doesn’t name names there, but she’s been known to diverge from grassroots conservatives in these matters before. What would happen, though, if Boehner turned around and made a deal with Harry Reid on amnesty in September? One of the goals of Obama’s looming power grab over legalization is to scare Republican leaders with the thought that Latino voters will be so grateful, they’ll break even harder for Democrats in 2016. The only countermeasure, Dems would have you believe, is for

I have disagreed with her a lot lately, but sadly she is right. Even the worst Republicans are better than a Democrat. The author states that he is "willing to boycott the next election if the GOP makes a bad deal on immigration..." It´s a horrific place to be but there is no way in flying you know what that I will sit out an election.

I agree. Sitting out the election is voting for a Dem.

Lamar Alexander out-spent Joe Carr by 7.6 million to 1.5 million to win the primary.

It breaks my heart, but I will have to buck up and vote for Alexander in the November election. We need to take the Senate back to replace Harry Reid and have control of both houses.

The longer we play the party game the worse it will get for everyone. Ann is wrong. Never, ever cast a vote for anyone you believe is unsuited to the job or whose views you do not agree with.

Vote for the person, not the party. When enough people do this, that parties will matter a lot less. There are conservative, independent and libertarian candidates you can and should consider.

Sadly, the advice to only vote for a person you agree with will likely insure that the Republic dies quickly. We are already close to the edge where laws and rules don´t matter. If the Democrats continue control we will all be poor and learning Chinese.

What if the GOP strikes a deal on amnesty? Well, your reps are in your district, make sure they hear you.

If we elect Rino republicans, Rinos will continue to run. If we want conservatives, we must stop electing Rinos, whatever the short term consequences.

I agree 100%. The goal has to be to defeat Demon-RATS before they can further destroy this nation at any cost!!!!!

I wish there were other options than voting for RINO´s, but there aren´t. Even a RINO is going to vote with the Republicans most of the time -- especially if the Republicans are in control.

Sitting on your hands is not an option if you don´t want to see the Demon-RATS finish the destruction of this nation. So suck it up, hold your nose, and crawl naked over broken glass and AIDS-infected needles (if necessary) to vote for all Republican candidates that you can in November!!!!!

Long-Tall lost me @ #Christie and then #Romney. Her criticism of Christian missionaries, though containing some important considerations, was a hasty generalization. She bagged true believers in the same poke with fashionably, christian narcissists.

However, she did make a great point not included in the Hot Air review. She said that we must elect Republicans because we can be sure the media, at least, won´t let them get away with corruption.

Coulter is promoting power over policy. That´s the typical Establishment Agenda. If the crap assed RINOS are always reelected, there will never be a reason to vote R, as they now are all the same.

My Nov ballot will have a number of empty boxes when I turn it in after casting my votes for only those of true Conservative values.

I AM NOT INSANE!; thus I will not hold my nose and vote for "the lesser of two evils", as has been advocated by many here. PLEASE READ RECENT HISTORY; obama ran in 2008 on the deficit because the Republicans spent so much money when they had power. Explain why this time will be different. It will not. "The lesser of two evils" is evil. Break the cycle this election. I will vote for Michelle Nunn because a republican senate boosts the dems chances in 2016.

I agree with #3, 6, and 9.

We do have a choice, Ann, and we will exercise that choice that belongs to each one of us, until the RINOs understand that winning with a liberal is not winning, no matter how you spin it ("we have no choice") No, Ann, you don´t tell us we don´t have a choice. Our votes are our only voice and we will use it.

Ann is saying that the average conservative American, whose only voice is his or her vote, does not have a "choice" on how to cast that vote.

As said above, if we keep electing RINOs, only RINOs will run and be elected. We voters have the choice to give the power to those to whom Ann and our Republican "leaders" would rather freeze out--decent conservative fighters who work for the people, not the system.

Ann Coulter is nothing more then a political elitist herself. She like the rest of the lemmings can do what they want with their vote. If they want to offer up their vote for empty promises so be it. That mentality only shows how cheap and shallow they are.

If you want my vote, you must earn it.
You can moan and whine all you want. Its all you have. My vote goes to people who are going to fix our problems, not those who will continue to spend our country into destruction.

By continuing to vote party line without any regard for the damage they will do, or continue to allow, YOU are part of the problem.

Remember Mississippi!
I will.

Of course she´s right. Doesn´t anyone out there know what it means to win the House and the Senate? If you have one more Member than the other party, you OWN the institution! You set the rules. You schedule the calendar. Rather than folding arms, pouting, lowering glum faces, and facing away, think beyond the RINO-realist divide for once and for the greater good.

If you don´t vote, it´s the same as voting for the Demon-RAT!!!!!

Either a Republican is going to win an election, or a Demon-RAT is going to win. Maybe a few very local elections might go to a third party, but major elections are going to either the Republican or Demon-RAT.

All of the conservatives saying they won´t vote for the Republican unless he is perfect, are just giving the Demon-RATS two more years to destroy this nation.

At this point, it´s either accept the reality and do ANYTHING possible to stop the Demon-RATS, or stick with your principals and watch the Demon-RATS further destroy this nation.

We must stop the Demon-RATS while Øvomit has two more years left in his reign of terror. If we control both houses of Congress -- even with a less than perfectly conservative Republican majority -- we can stop Øvomit from appointing lie-beral judicial activist judges and abusing his powers even more on things like illegal aliens.

Get control in 204, then work on getting good conservatives elected in 2016. But don´t allow the Demon-RATS to continue unabated by allowing them to keep power!!!

I´m with SSA (#16) and all the other Sell-Out/RINO/Squishes on this thread. The fact is that with the exception of a few electoral pockets there are just not enough hardcore conservative voters out there to elect their kind of candidates on their own. Any meaningful opposition to the Marxocrats must of necessity be a coalition of conservatives and so-called moderates.

There is just no way around that, and because the GOP establishment is often too myopic to see it is not an excuse for us to do the same.

And we don´t have the luxury of time, ladies and gentlemen. Implicit in the purist argument is the notion that if we hold out on principle and let the ´Rats destroy the country some great conservative renaissance will occur down the road. That´s just fantasy, IMO. No comeback will be possible when the Left gets an iron grip on all the institutions and the permanent government. In that event elections will be meaningless, and renegade courts and commissars will regulate every aspect of our lives. Indeed, they will determine who lives and dies.

Vote Republican, por favor.

Sadly I have to agree 100% with #16. We do not have choice this time. Harry Reid and Pelosi are just not in normal mental state. Democrats, not matter what they say while campaigning, will vote in lockstep. Not one single Democrat voted against Obamacare.

I do not always agree with Ann Coulter. But this time she is right. Things have totally gotten out of hand. The border situation poses an enormous threat to us all. We need to remove Harry Reid.

In response to Obama Nationalizes The 2014 Election As Democrat Candidates Cringe: There´s so much happening in the news right now that Obama declaring the 2014 elections are a referendum on his Presidency probably won´t get as much notice as it deserves.

The House made a bipartisan demand Friday that Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson conduct a comprehensive review of the Secret Service and not just a probe of how they reacted to last month’s fence jumper. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and the panel’s top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said in the letter to Johnson that a September hearing on the agency exposed “a series of dangerous security breaches,” that point to serious flaws. Issa and Cummings also called on Johnson to make public a currently classified internal report on the incident as well as

Bret Baier asked Johnson: Did you ask Secret Service Director Julia Pierson to resign? “Director Pierson offered her resignation, and I accepted it,” he told Baier.

Lest Republicans forget, Obama was elected and reelected to the presidency by large margins in 2008 and 2012. First, congressional accusations against Holder on the controversial “Fast and Furious” “gun walking” program have been proven factually wrong.

Former Housing and Urban Development loan specialist Brian Thompson pleaded guilty Thursday to stealing $843,000 of taxpayer money in a wire fraud scheme. Thompson was responsible for selling properties acquired by the government after borrowers defaulted on their HUD-guaranteed mortgages. Specialists like Thompson were tasked with ensuring the sale of these properties at the best possible price to reimburse the government for taxpayer funds made to mortgage lenders for insured loans. Instead, he funneled portions of the proceeds into bank accounts he controlled, netting himself $843,000 in the process.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
