Celebrity conservative columnist Ann Coulter, who sits on the board of the homosexual group, GoProud appears to be attempting to out flip-flop the man who literally coined the phrase, Willard Mitt Romney.
In the run up to the 2008 election, Coulter urged conservatives and Christians to support Mitt Romney for president, whom, she said, if conservatives had done their “homework” was “manifestly the best candidate.”
A few months ago at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Coulter seemed to be changing course when she told the grassroots conservative audience that RINO New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie was her man in 2012 and that Obama will win if Romney is the nominee. Ironically enough, when Christie announced that he would not be running in 2012, he endorsed the very man who Coulter asserted would lose to Obama.
In her syndicated column yesterday, “If Not Romney, Who? If Not Now, When?”. Coulter, changed course, yet again, by getting back on board the Romney train encouraging conservatives to once again take one last chug of the Romney Kool-Aid.
Glug, Glug, Glug…
According to Coulter, conservatives need to support the man who only a few months back Coulter, herself, claimed would lose to Obama if he were to become the nominee because:
“Among Romney’s positives is the fact that he has a demonstrated ability to trick liberals into voting for him. He was elected governor of Massachusetts — one of the most liberal states in the union — by appealing to Democrats, independents and suburban women… Also, Romney will be the first Republican presidential nominee since Ronald Reagan who can talk. Liberals are going to have to dust off their playbook from 30 years ago to figure out how to run against a Republican who isn’t a tongue-tied marble-mouth.”
So, Coulter thinks conservatives and Christians should support Romney because he got elected governor of a liberal state by deceiving (“tricking”) its citizens and because he “can talk?”
Is this the new “Coulter Standard” for choosing the next leader of the free world?
According to Coulter, Romney’s only “negatives” are his “Mormonism and Romneycare” both of which can easily be overcome according to Coulter.
As was Coulter’s modus operandi in the run up to the 08’ election when she falsely portrayed Mike Huckabee as a German Christian Democratic Socialist while simultaneously white-washing Romney’s far more liberal social and fiscal record, Coulter continues, half a decade later, to ignore and suppress Romney’s far left wing social and fiscal record which includes Romney’s:
• Illegal & unconstitutional institution of sodomy-based “marriage.”
• Signing $50 tax-subsidized abortions into law (3 years AFTER his fake “pro-life conversion”)
• Boosting funding for homosexual “education” starting in kindergarten.
• Opposition to a ban on homosexual scoutmasters.
• Promising the homosexual Republican “Log Cabin Republicans” he wouldn’t oppose “gay marriage” in return for their endorsement.
• Instituting a quasi-socialist healthcare plan endorsed by Hillary Clinton, Teddy Kennedy and Planned Parenthood that destroyed the Massachusetts’ economy.
• Increasing taxes and fees by close to a billion dollars which destroyed the Massachusetts’ economy.
• Passing over Republican lawyers for three quarters of the 36 judicial vacancies he faced and nominated 2 open homosexuals.
• Criticizing Joint Chief’s of Staff, Peter Pace for saying that homosexual acts were “immoral.”
• Support for passage of Employment Non-Discrimination Act which would force churches and other religious organizations to hire homosexuals and transvestites or face criminal fines and prosecution.
• Supporting McCain-Feingold “campaign finance reform”, McCain-Kennedy “comprehensive immigration reform” (i.e. amnesty), and parts of the McCain-Lieberman “carbon cap and trade” bill and opposing the Bush Tax Cuts.
As I explain in my forthcoming book, “We Won’t Get Fooled Again: Where the Christian Right Went Wrong and How To Make America Right Again”, I and others close to Ms. Coulter shared the above documented information with her on numerous occasions over the past 5 years both in person and in e-mail.
Sadly, Ms. Coulter has chosen to intentionally suppress Romney’s record from her millions of conservative and Christian readers.
In her article, Coulter rightly points out some of the glaring negatives of Newt Gingrich’s record including his affairs, support for Planned Parenthood award recipient Dede Scozzafava, his appearances with uber liberals Nancy Pelosi and Al Sharpton to promote the pagan religion of “global warming” and public education respectively, and the recent revelation of Gingrich being the recipient of hundreds of thousands of dollars of Freddie Mac political contributions.
So why the total silence with regard to Romney’s fully documented radical left wing record above?
Coulter claims that one of the things she admires most about Romney is that he was successful in “tricking” Massachusetts’ liberals into voting for him despite the fact that the “joke” was actually on conservatives like me who lived in Massachusetts when Romney accomplished what no liberal Democrat could have ever accomplished on their own in ushering in same-sex “marriage,” a socialist healthcare plan that includes $50 co-pay elective surgical abortions, and a billion dollars in tax and fee hikes.
But the truth is that Ms. Coulter has been trying to “trick” conservatives and Christians for quite some time now by portraying Romney as an authentic conservative who had to make a few minor compromises with Democrats in the legislature during his administration when Romney’s actual record demonstrates that Romney and Romney alone was responsible for the implementation of same-sex “marriage,” the $50 abortions, the billion dollars in tax and fee hikes etc…
My genuine hope and prayer is that she and many of her other peers in the media including Ingraham, Hannity and Limbaugh who all endorsed Romney, will level with their tens of millions of Christians and conservatives in their audiences by sharing Romney’s full record with them since they deserve to know the truth about all the candidates’ records.
But I won’t hold my breath.
And we can be sure that the mainstream media has accrued a file cabinet’s worth of material on Romney’s real record, and that the file will be opened during the general election campaign because they know the easiest way to dis-spirit the conservative-Christian GOP base is to consistently remind them how liberal their nominee is.
I agree with Coulter on this: that Romney will lose to Obama if he is the nominee as the past elections of 76’, 92’, 96’, and 08’ should have demonstrated since it is virtually impossible to win without your base. Like those past elections when the GOP has nominated a RINO, the conservative base will stay at home, and Romney’s record and its suppression by “conservative” pundits in the media will come back to bite us all.
