Ann Coulter riles up the CPAC crowd


Right-wing author and commentator Ann Coulter was warmly received by a standing-room only audience in a ballroom at the Conservative Political Action Conference Friday, garnering enthusiastic applause for her criticism of President Obama’s policy on mandating birth control coverage for employees at religiously-affiliated institutions.

“This isn’t a Catholic issue, this is a freedom issue,” Coulter told an audience of conservative activists. The Catholic church has been the most critical of the Obama administration’s decision.

Coulter said the birth control decision is part of a larger assault on health care freedom, which she said involved “every crazy liberal idea.”

Coulter incorporated the “occupy” protests, Bernie Madoff, “Obamacare,” pretty girls and the Republican presidential candidates into wide-ranging comedic commentary in which she attacked Mr. Obama discussed the issues faced by conservatives. She also sought to unite a party going through a bitter and longer-than-expected Republican presidential primary.

Coulter said the “only question” conservative voters considering a presidential candidate should be asking is this: “Who will have the most appeal to undecideds?”

    What business has Ann Coulter in addressing the real wing of the party which she deserted? Did she bring her own cheerleaders as Ron Paul did in the past? In my opinion she is no longer a conservative voice!
    Her real objective – support a liberal moderate instead of unity within the conservatives.

    • jjkrjw says:

      I agree. She is endorsing Romney? Is this the Ann Counter we knew from the past?

    • Dave Langdon says:

      ANN WANTS TO SELL BOOKS AND BE A PART OF THE ROMNEY , WHITE HOUSE THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. MCCLAIN, COULTER,SOROS, OBAMA, THEY ALL WANT ROMNEY AND THAT IS WHY WE REAL CONSERVATIVES DO NOT.

    • guest says:

      Ann Coulter is all about Ann Coulter. If you do a search you will find that she is "good friends" with Bill Maher.

    • 2WarAbnVet says:

      I hate to recommend reading elsewhere, but here's an interesting article if you haven't seen it.

    • stillmoral says:

      Absolutely agree. I turn her off now when I hear her simpering voice saying how wonderful Romney is. This man is bring the Republican party down with his smear campaigns. He doesn't get it, nobody wants him except for RINOS like her, Rove and Krauthaumer. Get lost Coulter you smell bad.

    • Michael says:

      Yep, Ann has abandoned whatever principles she may have once had to be a Romney cheerleader. Let's move along without her and her ilk.

    After this week’s melt down and “coming out” of formerly considered conservative author Ann Coulter, I went back to review some of the titles of her books. Post the revelations this week that her first choice for a GOP presidential nominee, Chris Christie, Governor of New Jersey whom appointed an openly gay judge as though what this judge does with his genitalia is somehow a qualification on judicial appointments and Coulters second choice, Willard Mitt Romney whom also appointed left-wing pro abortion judges as if killing the unborn is to be the new GOP banner, I thought to revise a few of the titles that made her famous.
    “Godless: How I Infiltrated Conservatism for Two Decades”
    “Guilty: How I Became a Liberal Victim in America”
    “How to Talk to Ann Coulter (If You Must): When the Conservatives Woke-up”
    “If Republicans Had Any Brains, They’d know I’m a RINO”
    “Demonic: How this Liberal Endangered America”
    “High Crimes and Misdemeanors: Because Bill Clinton Refused to Stain My Teeth or Share His Cigar With Me”
    “Slander: How Supporting Chris Christie and Willard M. Romney Finally Got Me Busted”
    And, Ann will probably continue her efforts as a mediocre scrivener. We can expect her new shtick to sound a bit more like, “How Andrew Stein Preserved My Cover in 2008: And Kept Me off the Public Dole,” and the sure to be best sellers, “Ann Coulter: Agent #2,” and “Coulter and the Cultist: Me N Mitt in 2012.”

    • Vincenta says:

      You definitely have her pegged right. You forgot to mention how she ridiculed and named the "Birthers" for demanding Nobama produce a valid birth certificate. Something he is yet to do.

    Please keep comments clean and appropriate for Obama’s audiences. Please do not use honest or truthful language. ALL CAPS comments are inappropriate. Please be patient when posting an honest truthful fact based comment. It may take a few minutes for your comment to be manipulated by our censors. Due to the word "Socialism" containing the name of a prescription drug, all comments containing the word “freedom” gets flagged for moderation. These comments have to be manually manipulated and altered for the benefit of Obama and Romney so they will not post immediately.

    Everyone is missing the point here……….contraception is NOT a health issue. To be so, pregnancy would have to be a disease!!

    • The Blue Collar Man says:

      Can't you just go with the "flow"? Don't be so informative and pointed. You just let the "Cat" out of the bag.
      Plus the latest, which if planned, is really, really imagiative double speak.
      (P) poison obumbler's walk back of his position on this abortion controversy, isn't what it sounds like.
      (1) This only affects those who work for Faith based Charitys, Hospitals, other orginizations
      THIS is a SMALL number of people, 5%. That leaves the other 95% in the same position they were before.
      (2) This is "dramtic" news. NOT. But, will cause the great hue and cry to die a sudden death, causilng millions to igniore any further mention of the assult on the Constitution, because obumbler "fixed" his error.
      (3) obumbler "fixed" nothing, just another way he found to lie, and again gets away with doing things HIS WAY.

    • toosmarttovoteGOP says:

      So you're saying that pregnancy and health have nothing to do with each other?

  6. ricbee says:

    Insiders like her can be corrupted by hearing that "beltway" logic over & over. Even Rush can be deluded by the big boy's talk.

  9. smood8 says:

    NOt a very intelligent set of comments. Lots of rage and very little factual consideration. Let's not be like the left. They love this too much. Be happy that we actually have a choice or 2 this round, unlike ending up with McCain last time. That was a real bummer.
    Has anyone ever compared the Healthcare program that Hillary Clinton was asked to head up by her Husband, President Clinton? How does it match up with Obamacare? Does the Center for American Progress carry the title "author" for this wonderful, freedom stealing law? That would be an interesting conversation.

    • The Truth says:

      RomeyCare matches up exactly with obamacare. Ann's favotrite RINO candidate.

    • Vincenta says:

      You are 100% correct. It seems that everyone has their favorite and enjoy biting the leg of those that prefer another. In the end, some will have to eat crow and stand united, or fall divided.

  10. The Truth says:

    Ann Coulter is a RINO and not worthy of any conservative audience. Wonder how much progressive Romney's camp is paying her. Sick of seeing her lying face on the news. Traitor.

  11. jerry1944 says:

    i think as Ann as more a comdeian. But she sure isnt a conservative maybe she has a new boy friend that has changed her mind But i dont care who she is for i WANT vote for romney. I am not a party sheep and didnt fight wars to follow the croud

    • toosmarttovoteGOP says:

      She is a performance artist. And I doubt she has a new boyfriend. I can't see any man wanting to date someone whose Adam's Apple is bigger than his unless he's gay. Oh…

  12. El Loco says:

    What "undecideds"? Anybody who hasn't yet made up their mind (pro or anti Odumbo), is either pro Obummer (and is too ashamed to admit it) or doesn't have a mind.

    Longer than expected primary season? It's barely begun!
