Ann Coulter has a 2012 message for conservative Republican purists

Ann Coulter seems to have captured in an op-ed some of the insanity that seems to have taken over the Republican Party in it's search for an anti-Romney candidate:
So now, apparently, we have to go through the cycle of the media pushing Newt Gingrich. This is going to be fantastic.

In addition to having an affair in the middle of Clinton's impeachment; apologizing to Jesse Jackson on behalf of J.C. Watts -- one of two black Republicans then in Congress –- for having criticized "poverty pimps," and then inviting Jackson to a State of the Union address; cutting a global warming commercial with Nancy Pelosi; supporting George Soros' candidate Dede Scozzafava in a congressional special election; appearing in public with the Rev. Al Sharpton to promote nonspecific education reform; and calling Paul Ryan's plan to save Social Security "right-wing social engineering," we found out this week that Gingrich was a recipient of Freddie Mac political money.

(Even I will admit, however, that Newt was great when he was chairman of GOPAC back in the '90s with Gay Gaines at the helm.)

Although Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- the institutions most responsible for the nation's current financial crisis -- were almost entirely Democratic cash cows, they managed to dirty up enough Republicans to make it seem like bipartisan corruption.

Democrats sucked hundreds of millions of dollars out of these institutions: Franklin Raines, $90 million; Jamie Gorelick, $26.4 million; Jim Johnson, $20 million.

By contrast, Republicans came cheap. For the amazingly good price of only $300,000 apiece, Fannie and Freddie bought the good will of former Reps. Vin Weber, R-Minn., Susan Molinari, R-N.Y., and Newt Gingrich, R-Ga.* Former Sen. Alfonse D'Amato, R-N.Y., was even cheaper at $240,000.

[*Correction: After Gingrich admitted last week to receiving $300,000 from Freddie, we found out this week that it was actually closer to $1.6 million.]

So now conservatives shy away from denouncing these crooked organizations for fear of running into Vin Weber at a cocktail party.

Sorry, guys -- on the plus side, you're millionaires, but on the downside, you've earned the contempt of your fellow man.

The mainstream media keep pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney not only because they are terrified of running against him, but also because they want to keep Republicans fighting, allowing Democrats to get a four-month jump on us.

Meanwhile, everyone knows the nominee is going to be Romney.

That's not so bad if you think the most important issues in this election are defeating Obama and repealing Obamacare.

I don't always love Coulter's style (sometimes unnecessarily inflammatory), but she's almost always right. She sees (and is honest about) Romney's deficiencies, but recognizes he's a very strong candidate and the only candidate we have.

Newt is a disaster of a candidate. He would have been better off never getting in the spot light. He'd be a great press secretary, but his moral deficiencies and very recent positional maneuvers make him a non starter. His horrible treatment of his first two wives would cause him to shed female voters at an insane rate.

The good news: At least we have a month to vet and eliminate him from contention.

I agree with Slick-Willy's good news: a month or so to whittle down Newt should be enough time.

Newt is a slick talker, but he would be an easy target for the Democrat destruction machine in the general election. Newt has baggage, and even his baggage has baggage. The post about the SurveyUSA poll below demonstrates this.

I don't always agree with Coulter..but she is right this time..I also think the Democrats are loving this freak show we got going on the primaries..that is probably why Obama's numbers are up.

I'm not a Coulter fan, but I think she makes a good case that Romney is trustworthy on repealing ObamaCare.

If people want to get a taste for the Real Newt, you should check out this You tube video. It is 33 minutes long and it doesn't even touch on his personal life. Newt is tricking the Tea party in making them believe that he is a small government kind of guy.
