Ann Coulter used to be one of the shinning voices of the Conservative movement. She could be counted on to verbally joust and destroy liberal opponents.
Suddenly she isn’t doing this.
Suddenly she is saying we should give in to Obama.
What has happened to Ann Coulter?
I must confess, I have been a fan of Ann Coulter for a long time. I admire her writing and her writing has been something of an inspiration to me.
Yet I have to wonder what is going on.
Last year she came out for Mitt Romney in the primaries against a slew of other good and real conservatives. She has spoken admiringly of that gelatinous blob and Al Gore certified source of hot air and global warming, Chris Christie.
Now, she has come out and said we should just give into Obama on taxes.
Ann Coulter was on Hannity last night and she said that Republicans should agree to raise taxes on the rich because if we don’t and Obama pushes us off the fiscal cliff, the Republicans would be blamed.
She reminded Sean Hannity that Republicans lost the election. So, in her mind, Obama is going to beat us on this issue so it is just better to surrender.
Ann, that is so John Boehner of you!
Let’s set a few records straight. The Republicans did not lose the race. Mitt Romney lost the race. The Republican establishment, which gave us their hand picked candidate, lost the race.
Conservatives did not lose. We did not have a horse in the race. The election was an extreme liberal against a not as liberal Republican. Coulter is right. Obama and the drive-by media will blame Republicans no matter what. They will blame Republicans for cracks in the sidewalk and a cloudy day.
Coulter is right that our messaging is worse than terrible.
But that is not a reason to surrender. It is a reason for us to improve our messaging. It is also a reason for us to change leaders and get rid of the RINOs who have done nothing but lead us to defeat after defeat.
A friend of mine posted a blog today in which he talked about the famous Revolutionary War hero, Admiral John Paul Jones. Jones fought the enemy. When his ship was on fire and sinking, a British Captain demanded his surrender.
Jones’ words became legend.
“I have not yet begun to fight.”
For America, for freedom and liberty we fight. And we conservatives have not yet begun to fight.
Perhaps someone should remind Ann Coulter of the words of a great leader and hero of freedom: Sir Winston Churchill.
“We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.”
We shall fight on against Obama and the rest of his liberal cronies in the name of freedom. Ann Coulter may surrender if she wishes. We shall never surrender in our fight against socialism lest the lamp of liberty be extinguished in this God-blessed nation and we be forced to live the words of Ronald Reagan who warned of a day where we would tell our children and our grandchildren what it was like to grow up in a free America.
We shall never surrender.
I was surprised at her comment. maybe she is trying out the Kool-aid in red. That's the only thing that I can think of. Let him throw us off the Cliff, they might want to blame us but in the end we can point out how Taxing the rich was not going to raise enough money to end the spending that the liberals do all the time. We could show them this is what liberalism does, this is what keeping hand out's do!! people would STOP trusting Obama....HE LED US HERE!!
I think Ann says whatever she thinks might help her sell more books. Period.
You beat me to it.
Ann Coulter has always been a self-promoter without any real conservative convictions. She's just pumping out books faster than a crack head mother pumps out babies. They're both just in it for the money and nothing more.
There is a dictator in the office and soon people are going to start paying a real price. So those that did not really believe in what they where saying are starting to get frightened. Now we are seeing who the real believers really are and it appears she did it for the money.
Yep, I caught that piece. Hannity was beside himself!
It might have made a little sense, had she highlighted and stressed some mechanism whereby the Democrats would clearly and absolutely be held responsible for the outcome that will be obvious to all rather quickly. But she offered nothing really. Blame the Republicans again, this time with Ann's blessings!
Didn't see the segment but do listen to him in the afternoons on the radio and for the last week or so, he's been saying that he thinks the House should just pass/extend all the Bush tax credits for everyone and kick it up to the Senate and let Harry Reid bear the burden of not doing anything (because we all know he never brings anything up for a vote that the GOP is for/behind). . .did he mention this to her during their discussion and what does everyone think about doing this?
oh, so well said Billy.
I woke up the day after the election and during my devotional time the Lord reminder me of two songs and John Paul Jones and his taking the battle to the enemy in the midst of what looked like certain defeat.
The songs were, Onward Christian solders onward to victory, and The Lord is marching on and His army is ever strong and His glory shall be seen upon our land. The captain of the host is Jesus we are following in His footsteps, no foe can stand against us in the fray!
When you are on the side of truth you cannot lose. You may lose a battle or two but you will not lose the war if you do not lose heart.
Although out numbered and out gunned John Paul Jones took the battle to the enemy. When he was asked to surrender the said "I have not yet begun to fight". When the battle was over the British surrendered to him.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding and He will direct your steps. And never never never give up. And don't compromise your principles (truth). When you compromise you have already lost.
Again thank you and God bless you and God bless America.
Thanks Keith, I needed that!
