    [​IMG]Mitt Romney and Ann Coulter CPAC 2007 Backstage


    1. She was prominent at CPAC the main event of the year for conservatives.

    2. She sucked up all the oxygen in the room(just observe the video)

    Observation if this video portrays the real Mitt Romney he comes off as a wimp compared to Ann taking over the spotlight....he just seems so weak
    or is he just biting his tongue?? or is he tolerating Ann as just a clown who is their just to entertain.

    My opinion: I think discerning conservatives are upset...equally with what she slurred and slandered a good Christian man in John Edwards but also that she just plain "took over" and those who should have been heard ..were not.

    The real Republicans were not even heard and that is why I ask the question...their are feelings out there from discerning Republicans to cut her loose...what say you.


    Oh look...its Jay Sekulow apple polishing...he just got his son a gig on TBN he is riding high.

    and for those who just chime that she should just be ingored or why is she even debated on this forum...this is why ..she is prominent she is out front ..she mixes with high public officals those even running for President)

    She is just not going away...and that is why she is fair game and is legitimate to debate her divisive tact that hurts this nation ...I personally thinks she needs professional help....perhaps father issues from her past and what he did.

    Not enough options to give an honest vote. Even conservatives have the right to say stupid stuff, the liberals do not have a corner on this market, although it seems to come easier for them. :laugh:

    God Bless!

    ==How do you know this about Edwards? Do you know him personally? I don't think his policies reflect those of a "good Christian man".

    ==No she is not going away. And in part we have people like you to thank for that. You keep her name in lights and therefore you enable her to sell more books. If everyone would just ignore her she will go away.

    Wow, AP, I had no idea you were a professional therapist, being able to diagnose people with "father problems" by just reading or watching them on tv. Kudos to you!

    Martin you are being hypocritical aren't you


    You were the one in the beginning writing to me ..not to post on the political board and low and behold you are sooooooo political and you seem to have a crush on yourself and what you write...my goodness your bible is soooooooo marked up ...thanks for telling us...Oh get ready here is the big one Martin.....

    Bill O'Reilly(have no problem him being debated by the way..you just cannot be selective Martin ..or can you)

    LOOK IN THE MIRROR MARTIN AFTER YOU HAVE PRIMPED OF COURSE


    AND BTW YOU BRAG ABOUT NOT EVEN VOTING...SO WHY WOULD I EVEN TAKE YOU SERIOUSLY ..which I do at times especially the post about Al Mohler which was a good post.


    Ann is legit and much to Mr. O'reillys nemisis Martin she is in the news and is prominent in conservative politics and I have backed that up with links...martin has not..but I do appreciate Martin for letting the flood gates open with Al Mohlers revelations on gays..thanks Martin that was a real popular thread.

    so back to topic and it is important to actually debate my point like I have said ...conservatives are really tired of her and tired of her sucking out all the oxygen.

    My goodness she is standing beside Presidents and perhaps future Presidents she is legit debate ...period! on this political board.

    now what is in the news that supports my point


    http://www.hrcactioncenter.org/campaign/coulter

    A number of the conservative bloggers who attended the CPAC conference, where Ann Coulter spoke, have issued a public letter to the conference organizers. The letter calls on the conference, organized by the very important conservative group American Conservative Union, never to invite Coulter again, and more importantly, the bloggers essentially disinvite Coulter from the conservative movement.

    The list of those bloggers who signed the letter is at the bottom of this post. But more interesting than those who signed is those who attended the conference but did not sign on to the letter, starting with the number one conservative blogger, Michelle Malkin.


    http://www.captainsquartersblog.com/mt/archives/009328.php

    snippet:
    Ann Coulter used to serve the movement well. She was telegenic, intelligent, and witty. She was also fearless: saying provocative things to inspire deeper thought and cutting through the haze of competing information has its uses. But Coulter's fearlessness has become an addiction to shock value. She draws attention to herself, rather than placing the spotlight on conservative ideas.
    At the Conservative Political Action Conference in 2006, Coulter referred to Iranians as "ragheads." She is one of the most prominent women in the conservative movement; for her to employ such reckless language reinforces the stereotype that conservatives are racists.

    snippet:
    The National Center for Public Policy Research is one of very many co-sponsors of CPAC, and has been for some years. After Ann Coulter's offensive speech last year, we telephoned the organizers and strongly suggested that Ann Coulter's behavior was harmful to, and unrepresentative of, the conservative movement. We said we were considering pulling out our co-sponsorship because of Ann Coulter's "raghead" comment, and asked them to not invite Ann Coulter to speak in CPAC 2007, or, at the very least, only invite her if she was told to can the offensive speech, and explicitly agreed to do so. I had 90 percent decided to stop our co-sponsorship for CPAC 2007, but the sponsor seemed to be taking our concerns about Coulter's 2006 remarks seriously and with what seemed to us to be appropriate sympathy, so the National Center co-sponsored CPAC again this year. ... As has been widely reported, Ann Coulter not only once again went out of her way to use a nasty epithet, she pushed her offensiveness up a notch, using a word that is even more universally reviled than the derogatory term she hurled last year.
    So, CPAC's sponsors either invited Coulter back without first getting her pledge that she would speak without using demeaning epithets, or they obtained her pledge, and she broke her word. ...
    It would be better, in my opinion, to not have a CPAC at all than to have one that presents conservatism as a hostile, people-hating ideology. We conservatives have enough trouble overcoming the false things that are said about us without paying for a platform upon which we shoot ourselves annually in the foot.


    The conservative blogs involved

    ....CPAC sponsors, the Age of Ann has passed. We, the undersigned, request that CPAC speaking invitations no longer be extended to Ann Coulter. Her words and attitude simply do too much damage.

    back to my salient point...has Ann sucked up all the oxygen and will add this ..is she now hurting the good voices that need to be heard

    I for one am glad she said it. It pales in comparison with the leftist's constant assault on the GWB administration, but shows you liberals for what you are.
    Where is the indignation over Bill Maher's declaration of the advantages of the death of Cheney? How about your indignation over Michael Moore's decided desire in his docuhatchet job for the Presidents assassination?

    Calling the Breck girl a bundle of sticks pales in comparison.

    While I don't agree that she should have said it, I do see a double standard in the way some people have reacted to this.

    I did not vote in the poll, for the options were too limited.

    Ann Coulter is one person, with one person's opinion. Period. Granted, for whatever reason, she has a 'forum'. If one chooses to agree, fine; if one chooses to disagree, fine, as well. But any,on either side of an issue, are responsible for their own judgments and one can certainly turn off as well as on, the radio or TV. And one can choose whether or not to read the local rags, 'er I mean magazines and newspapers.

    Oh yeah! And the blogs, as well.

    She no more speaks, or does not speak, for me than any other individual, of any persuasion.

    Simple, huh?!?!!
