    "OK fine, let's do that, but in the end, at some point, if the Bush tax cuts are repealed and everyone's taxes go up, I promise you Republicans will get blamed for it," she said. "It doesn't mean you cave on everything, but there are some things Republicans do that feed into what the media is telling America about Republicans."

    Someone knocked Ann off the tracks! She rips hannity a new one on this. When Ann coulter says crazy is over you better damn well listen.
    Well, that completely misrepresents what Coulter said. She started out by saying that the next 4 years are going to be horrible economically because of Obama, and that there's nothing that the Republicans can do about it. That being the case she wants to make sure that Obama and the Democrats get the blame for the bad economy and that Republicans take the Senate in 2014 and the Presidency in 2016. She apparently thinks the way to do that is to make Obama own the economic problems, and one of the ways to do that is for them to give him the tax increases in the wealthy that he wants. She's afraid that if the Bush tax cuts expire the Republicans will get the blame for it.

    Personally, I think that the Republicans will get a lot of bad press, but that their supporters will rally behind them if the hold their ground.

    You know Bob Woodward of all people said something interesting today on Meet the 'De'pressed...He was essentially correcting Lawrence O'donnell, (whom I thought was going to give his patented Bat **** crazy performance but didn't), he said that Repubs will probably get blamed no matter what direction they go, but ultimately the economy in a 2nd term is the Presidents alone, and that it wouldn't take long for people to start blaming him if his plan doesn't work, and in a hurry.

    Actually many people care what she says which is why she is a best selling author, a frequent guest on talk shows and the subject of a thread on these boards.

She isn't sipping crystal with the rich elite, she is trash talking for the white trash christians who make up a good share of the party. You can piss and moan all you want about it, but that is the reality. The Mitt Romneys of the party are not inviting her to their clubs. They are not bringing her into old money. She knows who she is speaking for and they have no heart to fight a war for the rich's tax cuts. They may have tried to beat obama, but they are far separated from the GOP think tanks and rich elite. If you think you are going to march those guys into war for rich guy benefits you better think twice. They gave their effort, but their heart is really not in tax cuts for the rich. She knows that, and she knows that if you push them much harder they are going to jump ship to the tea party and then the rich GOP is screwed.
    Always the ad hom attacks from those who couldn't debate Coulter with the help of a hundred like-minded leftists.

    That, given Obama's dismal performance, is what should have happened during the past election but "Obamaphones" and the idea that Romney was a bully in high school carried the day.

    The American left will not change, cannot change, until reality smacks them in the face. They're no different then the European left or, indeed, the left anywhere. They all tend to think government is the answer to the problems they face in life. They tend not to be adults.

    You know for all the talk the right did about Obama being a "divider", I see more and more of this type of comments from the right. Do you think comments like this from Romney after the election and the other right are meant to unite the country by insulting an ENTIRE demographic in the most stereotypical way? Grow up

    But it is clear Barrack Obama and his followers are dividers. Their attacks are ad hominem with the genuine issues seldom being discussed. We can see that repeatedly on this thread regarding Ann Coulter.

    People are finally responding to the hatreds and ignorance of the Left, and that's all there is to it.

    Yeah the "adult" way to address the so called "hatred and ignorance" of the left is with hatred and ignorance from the right.
    /sarcasm off

    You're making my point about people from the right needing to grow up.

    I scare the hell out of adults. It is an interesting dichotemy of life. Unlike true monsters kids love me. Believe me, that can get to be extremely problematic with todays glomping anime fans. I think the problem you are having with me is I don't care about your opinion. It is great you have one and can spit it out, but I don't care if you like me. I have great friends. I was not auditioning for anymore. So if you don't like me that is cool. I don't give a damn. I am not what you would consider a brony, I am much much worse than all of that. bring out every good insult you have, and if you are creative with one i will give you some points. I will give you a little hint. in the end love me or hate me you listen to me. Go try to ignore me knowing my witty remarks are going unresponded to. Do me the favor of ignoring me and then somehow managed to see what I said so you could respond so concisely. I am a narcissist honey and I love my fans who send hate mail. Now bring your worst I have uses for you.

    Oh, and before you bitch that I am really full of myself, you asked.

    Oh, and do it in less than seven minutes. Just added that to see how long it took me to write that.

    The Left never lashed out against Dwight Eisenhower nor did the Right rile against JFK. While they may have been on opposite sides the discourse was far more civilized than it is today.

    Oddly enough the Left really began their vitriolic campaigns against one of their own, LBJ, with "Hey,hey, LBJ.! How many kids did you kill today?" Then of course it continued with Nixon, Ford, less so with Carter, but then it went off the charts with Reagan. The Right, mainly through talk radio, the only avenue they really had, began being very critical of Clinton, though the political vitriol from the left, equaling Reagans, reached its peak with George Bush. The MSM, which had at one time smoothly disguised their favoritism, now came out in the open and were clear adversaries against the President.

    We saw that in this past election where a good man was being accused of being successful, a bully, out of touch, lacking in patriotism, a racist, a misogynist, and so on. And of course the same is being done now against Obama.

    But it was the Left who set the agenda and now the Right is responding. It seems to me that the war will only get worse.
