Ann Coulter: Romney "was the perfect candidate"

Yep, she really said that to an incredulous Laura Ingraham:

COULTER: I think Romney ran just on his own force of will, a magnificent  campaign. I think he was the perfect candidate.

INGRAHAM: Are you kidding me?  You think he ran a magnificent campaign?


INGRAHAM: On what  basis are you saying that? He got his clock cleaned. How did he run a  magnificent campaign, Ann? I can’t believe Ann Coulter, who is a truth-teller on  issues from the economy to social issues to racial demagoguery is saying that  Romney ran a magnificent campaign with Eric Fehrnstrom and Stu Stevens at the  helm. How can you possibly conclude that?

The funny thing is that it was less than two years ago when she said if Romney was nominated, he’d lose to Obama. But that was before she began attacking Governor Palin and saying really nutty things like Romneycare is a great conservative program and Governor Palin, not Mitt Romney, is an establishment candidate.  Am I the only one who can’t take Coulter seriously any more?

    And if you deny any of this, you must want Obama to win.

    …wait….He already won?…Uhh…

    They are all nothing but talking heads…their opinions mean nothing to me…and never have.

    I’m with you Doug.  She’ll say anything at this point.

  • bedr1

    Ugh Coulter, I avoid her at all costs, the talking heads are worthless

  • uksarahfan

    Here ya go Ann – especially for you…

  • Laddie_Blah_Blah

    Celebrity pundit Coulter making a fool of herself, AGAIN. If Romney was the perfect candidate, but Sarah (not Mac) outdrew him by 2.4 million in 2008, then Sarah must be the super-perfect candidate, and she was not even at the head of the ticket.

  • HuntingMoose

    He Ann,

    how did that Cristie work out for you? You know, the one you had that crush on?

    was a real help, don’t you think? First helping the media set the expectations table against Romney by hightening the bar and at the last moment giving Obama a photo Op of fake bipartisanship for his campaign.

       Ann the chubby chaser.

  • c4pfan

    Ann Coulter is nothing to me and only an idiot like her thinks Romney ran a ‘brilliant’ campaign by getting less votes than McCain while outspending what McCain did by like 10 times and even outspent Obama!

  • Dan C

    Coulter is a liar and should never be taken seriously again. She has a split personality or something. She goes back and forth and contradicts herself constantly. Seriously, I think she has lost it. She is incoherent.

    • socon

       I swear it’s menopause.   She’s crazy.

      • mark1955

        I think it’s Booze!

        • socon

           She’s never been the same after she hit 50!

  • willegge

    She said that of course because she is never wrong LOL

  • friskyness

    Why is/was she ever taken seriously?  She just says whatever she has to, just to try and keep her tv jobs!  She’s a hack!

  • Lurker

    I heard Laura on Fox News talking about the 2016 GOP field and she didn’t even mention Palin. She said people like Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Kelly Ayotte, Susanna Martinez etc…

    • Dan C

      3 out of those 4 Palin put into office! 

    • uksarahfan

      I think the MO is never ever mention Gov Palin as a future contender for anything and she might just disappear. Problem is wishing it don’t make it so as the Governor continues to occupy a very special place in conservative hearts. She has a guaranteed base the other pretenders can’t match and they know it.

    • Suki Pero

      These people are living in the land of De Nile.  It’s time to wake them up.

    • mark1955

      The silence was deafening on Laura’s real pck for 2016…Jebbie.

    • Elwanda Burrell

       Laura is also a hack!!!

    • carolyn50

       heard the same coming from sean hannity.  no mention of sarah.  i think they are afraid of her too.

  • friskyness

    Where is Sarah Palin’s apology Ann?

  • RodPatrick

    I called Romney a slut once for changing positions when need be. Coulter is a perfect slut for that matter.

    Forgive my words. I mean no harm to my mom and all other great American women.

  • John_Frank

    Really Ann. Talk about be-clowning yourself.

  • MarkRNY

    Glad this post is above the Matthews post. Very appropriate–Matthews–"Obama is the perfect man"–Coulter–"Romney was the perfect candidate".

    I nominate Coulter as head of the wingnut RINO coalition! They can bounce off their padded cells with their Lefty bretheren and sisteren–just keep that Palin and The People in their place! (Still think it’s a hair fetish thing with Affected Annie).

  • The Ranger

    If Laura Ingraham was incredulous, I need to figure out what I am…I’m pretty sure I fell out of my chair when I read this.  I may have even stopped breathing momentarily, but I think that was because I was laughing.

  • otto

    Magnificent is when you win, Coulter . Lousy or great the result was the same…But>


     Ron Paul voters will not vote for Sarah Palin. I know this for fact, because i fought with them in 2008.
     Sarah Palin voters will not vote for Romney,i have seen that quite clear here ,
    and Romney voters will not vote for Palin. It’s a vicious circle. It’s time to get smart.

     So put that in your pipe and think about the way you go about the business of winning elections. So you hate Romney ,well there are a thousands of others out there that hate our candidate.

    So what’s next?….THE SAME CRAP OVER AND OVER.

    My dog is bigger and badder than your dog..Na Na Na

    And the Liberal ,Progressive,Marxist like Obama is the only one who benefits.
    Think before you go off half cocked ,you only end up shooting yourself in the foot.

    • Ed from justice

      Yes, but all the red on the map will vote for Sarah and will support her efforts to get people in the House and Senate who will make sure we have the votes to get what we need to get done–done.  I really don’t care who is in the oval office as long as we have to votes to call the dance and the tune..  Just look at the final map, Obama won the blue stuff, but he is surrounded by the red and we can take those areas.  LI and AC are eastern liberal elites, who need us but don’t like associating with us.  Fox news brings Sarah in when they need to improve their ratings.  Obama won the job under the system as it exists.  He now has to produce … he can’t blame Bush and he can’t blame congress if they will only throw the ball into his court and make him come up with a proposal.   Meamtime, we have to get going on a strategy that will allow us to control the House and Senate with a veto proof majority.  That means we have to start running really good conservative candidates in the primaries and get them elected in all of the red areas.  Sarah, we need a popular leader to spearhead the invasion… i’m talking peaceful invasion here folks!!!

    • c4pfan

      BS!  I will give any moderate a chance, if they 1) have convictions and 2) work with people like Sarah Palin and don’t ignore or mock them!

      Such as Rudy Gulianni.

      • Ed from justice

        I would also vote for a moderate who would fit your description, but I never found one.  I may, there is still time, but so far no luck.  I still think the best way is to sieze and hold the red and then see what the blue has to offer and where we agree get it done.  You have to do it for every office from the smallest to the highest in the target area.  It will take a lot of work and a really strong experienced leader.  I can help, but I am too old to really devote the time and effort.  I just wish I could do something to keep our country from becoming Greece.

        It appears to be voter turnout that lost this election for Romney.  And as much as i dislike the Republican elite. I do not feel very jubilant today.. Four more years of Obama .Does that give you satisfaction? I don’t have to be in bed with Romney to vote for him.

        He was a stepping stone to me. Out of a hole. ,I have no time for pouting about who rubbed who’s back. And to her credit neither does Sarah.. The more conservative candidates lost the primary and that is a stone cold fact. Newt was not anymore the answer than Romney.Neither was Santorum ,or Perry,or Bachman.. The people voted for Romney in the primary. Unless you know something nobody else does.

        But Obama as an option. I don’t think so. And yet i absolutely understand how you feel. But it is counter productive. And  there is no joy in mudville today.

  • gahanson

    All I remember about these two is the way they tore into Palin when Ingraham was subbing for BOR.

    Coulter is still going on and on about Christie, even now, after he gave a big boost to 0bama in the closing days of the campaign. 

    Never take anything she says seriously again.

    • n4cerinc

      True. If I am not mistaken you or someone else said the exact same thing many months ago. 

  • n4cerinc

    Regarding the Republican Party. I think it is officially in its dying stages. I am not sure there is any recovering from it. So let the party hacks throw out names that they think are the "bright stars". Mia Love was a Bright Star. No, she was Black. Marco Rubio is a Bright Star. No, he is Hispanic. The party is so awkward in its dealing with minorities, the rest of America sees right through them. How is it that a President with unemployment higher than when he took office, screw ups in Libya, etc. pummels the crap out of the "Most Eletable" candidate the Republican Party can nominate. The fact that they thought that this race was in the bag and how their media personalities on FOX and talk radio duped the audiences into thinking that the polls were wrong etc. shows how out of touch with reality this party is.

    So, keep Sarah Palin off the list. It is time for a new party. Stick with the Republican Party at your own peril. The only winner was John Boehner who promptly said, we are ready to bend over Mr. President. There is your Republican Party leader.
