Coulter & Ingraham Debate How Romney Lost to BHO

Today on The Laura Ingraham Show, Laura Ingraham spoke to conservative commentator, columnist and best-selling author Ann Coulter. In discussing Governor Mitt Romney’s loss to President Obama, Coulter stood by Mitt Romney and declared his defeat as a sign that the conservative movement is all but over. Laura, however, said Romney was a weak candidate, and that America still longs for conservative leadership.

Coulter began by defending Romney’s campaign strategy, saying @(0:52): “Romney ran… a magnificent campaign. I think he was the perfect candidate.” She continued, saying @(1:44) “[His campaign] was better than Ronald Reagan’s.”

Laura took issue with Coulter’s statement, saying @(3:28): “I can’t imagine that you, having seen the Ronald Reagan apparatus and Ronald Reagan’s booming and persuasive oratory, would say that Mitt Romney’s speeches were in any way Reaganesque or approaching them.”

Coulter was pessimistic about the future of conservatism, saying @(2:30): “People are suffering. The country is in disarray. If Mitt Romney cannot win in this economy, then the tipping point has been reached. We have more takers than makers and it’s over. There is no hope.”

Laura countered Coulter’s comments, saying @(5:23): “The idea of fighting for the country just ends because we have a candidate who was a one-term governor from Massachusetts who couldn’t pull it together and lost by a couple of percentage points? I just reject that.”

Laura continued, remarking @(6:10), “Conservatives have to have an articulate, smart, movement-type person at the helm… leaders convince and win people over and reset the agenda.”

Coulter concluded @(10:53): “Mitt Romney was the president we needed right now, and it is so sad that we are going to be deprived of…his kindness for being able to push conservative ideas on a country that is no longer interested in conservative ideas. It is interested in hand-outs.”

Laura chastised Coulter, saying @(11:26): “I think you’re going through a demoralized period, and I’m demoralized too. But I think that is B.S. I think the country is craving leadership.”

    To All Republicans

    The movie, “The Obama Deception” very well predicted
    the future results of Obama’s Presidency way back from when he was sworn in

    and so did the second part titled, “Fall of the Republic”

    Yes, Obama is the enemy of your freedom and prosperity, your
    future and your children’s future.

    But do you really know who Mitt Romney is?

    The following are 40 ways that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney
    were essentially the same candidate….

    of being terrorists can be killed by the president without a trial.

    23. Barack Obama has not closed Guantanamo Bay like he
    promised to do, and Mitt Romney actually wants to double the number of prisoners held there.

    25. They both support the job-killing “free trade” agenda
    of the global elite.

    country and both of them are right.

    27. Both candidates are extremely

    Who is Mitt Romney? He is the son of Rockefeller Republican George Romney. Look at who called him “..our favorite son!” None other than globalist kingpin Nelson Rockefeller.

    Mitt Romney would have been the enemy of your freedom and
    prosperity, and your children’s future just as much as Obama. He is a
    “Rockefeller Republican” and true to the legacy of J.D Rockefeller, he is as
    slick as the snake oil selling family of banksters who pushed his father, and
    now push him. Just watch this….

    “The argument that the two partiesshould represent opposed ideals and policies, one, perhaps, of theRight and the other of the Left, is a foolish idea acceptable only to
    the doctrinaire and academic thinkers. Instead, the two parties should be almost identical, so that the American people can “throw the rascals out” at any election without leading to any profound or extreme shifts in policy.”-
    Carrol Quigley, Tragedy and Hope (We the People’s Tragedy and the
    elite’s hope)

    No doubt, if Romney had won, the destination would be the same for America, but we would have taken a more scenic route to oblivion. And most of you neo-conned sheeple would have gone back to sleep thinking that your “man” was in charge and all was well.

    I can’t prove it but I suspect that the fix was in, and Obama knew it. He went to play basketball yesterday. The Lie Bold (Diebold) machines have been proven to be easy to hack.

    All things considered, this may be a blessing in disguise, for you no doubt are NOT going back to sleep again anytime soon after what happened yesterday.

    Obama now has a maximum of four years remaining in the office; If Romney or any of the other unqualified Republican’s were elected then one would probably be looking at twelve to sixteen years before the people would have another opportunity to vote for a qualified candidate. This is based upon the premise that the unqualified Republican would probably get two terms, or at least prohibit a qualified candidate after his first term; then another switch back to an unqualified Democrat for at least
    four and maybe eight years. During the Republican Primaries, The establishment
    Republicans repeatedly demonstrated conclusively that they will undermine a qualified
    candidate on their own ticket and are opposed to limited Constitutional
    government; they offered, realistically, twelve to sixteen more years of
    failure. I don’t think the Nation can survive another twelve to sixteen
    years, it may be able to survive another four.

    If the Republican Establishment had really wanted my vote, they would have needed to run and support qualified candidates who support and defend The Constitution – I’m not listening anymore to their nonsense about being against Obama when they
    undermined the only two qualified candidates they had, Congressman Paul and
    Governor Gary Johnson. Since they would not support two qualified
    candidates they did not get my vote for the unqualified candidate Mitt Romney. They
    are liars and can not be trusted. They are only against Obama because
    he is a democrat, not because they oppose his ideology and beliefs because they
    are pretty much the same as Romney.

    If the GOP were genuine in their belief of limited government we would not have seen the DELIBERATE marginalization of the best candidates. It’s all smoke and mirrors; Simply one party with two names, both intent on the ruination of America. I am sick of watching this puppet show.

    There was One Candidate for President who has shown by his example, by his past record who he truly is: A Christian who does not brag about it, instead he walks the walk every day of his life practicing the Golden Rule; A family man who has been married to the same woman for 55 years; The Patriarch of a family who are salt of the earth Americana at it’s very best; A true Constitutionalist who has never wavered from his principles and Votes “NO” to every unconstitutional bill. And to those who say he did not get enough legislation passed I say that is like criticizing a Nun for not
    turning “tricks” in a brothel when her purpose for being there is to redeem the
    harlots and show them a better way.

    He does not boast, he does not brag, he does not tell you he is the toughest so elect him, because he has demonstrated a firm yet resilient purposefulness all his life and he speaks a simple yet powerful truth. He does not want to “lead” you by manipulative tyranny, instead his personal and political life is a benediction to virtue and inspires others to listen, look and act. He does not want to control you or your life. He wants
    you to live in Liberty. He wants you to live in Freedom. He does not seek the
    Presidency to assuage his ego. He sought the Presidency so he can Serve the
    People and Restore the Constitution and America and he was willing to forgo the
    $400,000 that Obama is being paid, and only accept $39,336 to serve us.

    If 7Up is the un-cola, Ron Paul is the Un-Politician and America would not have had to choose from coke “Obama” or pepsi “Romney.” Remember that you could have had a V8 in 08 instead of McCain’t. McCain was a ringer and so was Romney in 12. Instead you will have to settle for O-bomb-a in 12. You could have had a Ron Paul instead and you would have been feeling a whole lot better about it today, after the election.

    You were warned that one of three likely scenarios would take place:

    1. “Ron Paul doesn’t get the nomination and runs as a third party candidate: Ron Paul gets the following voters: (a. 2008 Obama voters who thought they were going to
    get ‘Change’, (b. 2008 Obama voters who voted to end the wars, (c. the VAST
    majority of the Independent vote. (d. Ron Paul supporters coming out to vote in
    DROVES. Maybe Obama wins. Probably Ron Paul wins.” But Ron Paul did not
    run as a third-party candidate. Instead, he stayed in The Party and worked hard
    against great odds to change the course of history until the bitter end of the

    2. “Ron Paul and his supporters are shut out and even violently attacked at the
    conventions: Fervent and stubborn Ron Paul supporters stay home or write him in
    or vote for Gary Johnson.” This is what happened

    RNC Disenfranchises Paul Delegates; Rigs Rules to Nominate Romney

    RNC/GOP Corruption 2012

    RNC Sham 2012

    Surrealism, Soviet Realism

    3. This is what could have happened. “Ron Paul gets the GOP
    nomination: Ron Paul gets the following voters: (a. 2008 Obama voters who
    thought they were going to get ‘Change’, (b. 2008 Obama voters who voted to end
    the wars, (c. the VAST majority of the Independent vote, (d. the entire GOP
    voting block who dislikes Obama enough to vote for Ron Paul instead. (e. Ron
    Paul supporters coming out to vote in DROVES. Ron Paul definitely wins.”

    You could have made a difference. You could have awakened and
    got up and did something productive to get the only Constitutionally Qualified
    and most decent human being who was running for President; who so humbly walks
    the walk of Christ without calling attention to himself like so many who are
    glitter bugs talking as they are stumbling.

    “If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will
    also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle” Sun Tzu, The Art of War

    Next time, get behind someone who is truly Constitutionally Conservative like Ron Paul is. It will NOT be anyone like Marco Rubio, Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, Michelle Bachman, Rick Santorum, Rick Perry, Newt Gingrich, or Mitt Romney. And it won’t be that FAT SLOB Chris Christie either!

    It WILL be someone like Ron Paul, Justin Amish, Walter Jones,
    John Duncan, Gary Johnson, Virgil Goode, Chuck Baldwin, or Rand Paul.

    History will record what we do today moving forward. Will we save America while we still can? Or will we re-arrange the furniture on a sinking ship? I am not young, but I feel for the young people and I would like to leave our children and our children’s children an America of Freedom and Liberty with Constitutional Law, and specifically a Bill of Rights that protects their God given rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. Posterity will judge us for what we do today, and for what we
    don’t do today. Will Posterity pay homage to you for acting wisely to protect
    them by bringing flowers to your place of bodily rest, or will they curse your
    memory and bring sledge-hammers and wrecking balls to tear down your monuments
    and edifices and desecrate your graves?

    Think about it People.

    Morgan Stanley,
    Credit Suisse,
    and Bank of America,

        I stand with you. If they had left Paul and his delegates alone, thye would still had the nomination and probably the election. I believe they threw the fight and did it on purpose.

    Let’s face it, unless we can get true conservatives in the GOP establishment or get a real second party that supports conservative values, we will continue to have weak candidates to vote for. I wish there was some way to kick out the establishment GOP leadership that keeps destroying the real GOP. Even Wednesday morning, they were saying that Romney was too conservative. Just like the black vote is enslaved to the demorat’s, we conservatives are enslaved to the GOP now to even have the hope of getting a conservative. We are royally screwed.

    • Lucius_Junius_Brutus

      “Even Wednesday morning, they were saying that Romney was too conservative.”

      The same thing jumped out at me! I fully expect this to be the mantra coming from both the mid-stream media and the RNC as well for the next four years so as to justify their fielding an even more overt liberal than Romney next time. Lindsay Graham has pretty much effectively said that will be the RNC’s goal.

      Those of us who see through this charade will be castigated by the RNC and mid-stream media as “extremists” and “radicals” and our cause as unrealistic and a pipe dream. That is exactly what they got together to do to Ron Paul this past year. Unfortunately it worked. Now we have what we have.

    Elelectronic machines that count votes, touch Romney, your vote goes to Obama, these were used in seven swing States, all swing States, Florida registered quite a few hundred hispanics, who voted early, wih no address or ID. A under cover reporter went to registration to vote offices, in three States, recieved voter registration forms for other States, filled them out, and voted more than once. People who went to register to vote, and wrote Republican on the registration form, these forms were shredded, and found in the dumpster behind the office, they have offices in ten Sates, all swing States. Still think we had a honest election? Take a look at the voter map of he US. Tak look at what Romney won, in States that are red, he won by a landslide. then look at the blue Sates, Obama hardly won. America, youv’e been had. Even State elections had voter fraud for Repersentitives and Senators. Some, for Govenerors. And we all just sit by and don’t even want o alk about it. When Obama old that Russian Diplomat to tell Putin o back off, afer te election he would have more flexability, he was to confindent that he would win. That was my tip off. I started to really pay attention to what was going on. The prearations they made, started on 2009. It was a highly orginized effort, and it worked.

  • kelly s

    Laura is right, the Republican party is killing us with lackluster candidates who are not even conservative. Romney was not that different from BHO, there was nothing to vote FOR. Time to resurrect the “Wide Awake” party of the 1850’s that gave rise to the Republican party of the 1860’s. In the meantime its time to stock up on essentials, its going to be a wild ride!

  • Rick W

    Come on, that was a comedian mimicking Ann Coulter, right? It certainly wasn’t the real conservative Ann Coulter who launched many a furious battle against far right liberals but has slipped under the conservative radar and taken a nip of the liberal witch’s brew served up by the Obama party meister. Ann Coulter hit it right on the point of the nail, Mitt Rommney was like a fighter who taped up his hands but never put on the gloves. Worse yet he bobbed, weaved and back peddled but with exception of the first debate where he threw a few jabs he never went for the knockout. He got cut several times during the fight but he kept his hands at his side and never went on the offensive to stop his opponent. Instead he covered up hoping his cut man would patch him up and a biased group of biased liberal judges continued to beat him up. Conservatives need to begin now to pick somebody who has a few cuts and black eyes that is willing to ansewer the bell and step back into the ring and beat the c r a p out of his opponent.
