Alternate headline: Hell Freezes! Ann Coulter Makes Sense.
I couldn’t resist Ms. Coulter’s latest column on Townhall, mainly because it actually makes the perfect case for Romney, especially when she mentions the suburban women’s vote.
However, it’s her take down of Newt that is so delicious.
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.
This scathing indictment comes the same day Gingrich tops Romney in the latest Rasmussen poll 32% to 19%, with Cain coming in at 13%. I guess Dennis Miller’s endorsement of Herman didn’t change any minds. Meanwhile, Rick Perry has crashed and burned.
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.
There may be better ways to stop Obamacare than Romney, but, unfortunately, they’re not available right now. (And, by the way, where were you conservative purists when Republicans were nominating Waterboarding-Is-Torture-Jerry-Falwell-Is-an-Agent-of-Intolerance-My-Good-Friend-Teddy-Kennedy-Amnesty-for-Illegals John McCain-Feingold for president?)
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.
All Mitt Romney has to do now is convince the 99% he’s got better answers than Pres. Obama on the economy. Considering the wrong track numbers Obama’s dealing with today it’s my belief that even with Romney’s negatives, the American people will give him a chance.
In fact, against Pres. Obama there really isn’t a better Republican nominee to take him on. These guys are bookends of Democratic and Republicanism, representing the two establishment, corporate and Wall Street fueled political parties, each with their own flips and flops and marketing that doesn’t match the man.
Looking at both candidates the objective question remains Is this the best we’ve got?
