Conservative political commentator and best-selling author Ann Coulter tells Newsmax that Mitt Romney was “absolutely right” when he said supporters of President Barack Obama are dependent on the government.
She also states that the nation is approaching a “dangerous tipping point” when “takers” outnumber “makers” — and it’s “lights out for America” if Obama is re-elected.
Coulter is a syndicated columnist and frequent commentator on TV news shows. Her latest book is the just-released “Mugged: Racial Demagoguery from the Seventies to Obama.”
In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV on Tuesday, Coulter discusses Romney’s secretly recorded comments that the 47 percent of Americans who supported Obama were “people who pay no income tax” and thought of themselves as “victims” who are “entitled” to government benefits.
“I don’t understand what’s even disputable about it. I mean, that’s how the Democrats get people to vote for the Democrats,” she says.
“Give them a government job, give them some house, some sort of government largess. This is what it seems to me we’ve all been talking about, what’s happening to America and the dangerous tipping point we’re getting to where, when you have 51 percent of the population that’s taking more than it’s paying for government, they’re going to keep voting for the party of bigger and bigger government.
“But then you run out of the people who are paying for the government. You can’t do it forever. That’s the end of the republic. That’s a rather important issue and Romney is absolutely right.
“God bless those who still vote Republican even though, at least the short term, they could probably make more money and get even better benefits and even better healthcare deals and even better pensions under the Democrats. But some of them have to recognize that that’s going implode pretty soon.”
