    What!!!! She is the most negative person. I expected her to have notes on her hand. She looked at her notes a lot. Cannot take her seriously.

    If this the people representinting the republicans, they are truly ignorant. Looks like a group of jokers and haters conventions. I like the Americans to vote this Air heads, so that the country can go to the pits....I will urge anyone praying for the Downfall of the USA to contribute to the conservatives in the next election. Bush started the work the Americans Should give them another chance to finish the work.

    CPAC = Coulter = hatemongering against their fellow Americans.

    Truly sad. No wonder I left the Republican Party.

    During this entire confrence, have the Conservatives said a single thing that was positive or uplifiting? No! It has just been one long litany of negativity made up of fear, hate and regression. All they do is attack, attack, and attack! Have they offered up one solution? And I do not mean just another vague, rehashing of their usual talking points: less regulation, cutting taxes, smaller government, etc. – rather real solutions with some substance to them? No! All they produce is more derision and division. And the crowd hoots with cheers and laughter at a it all. The Conservatives are not only capable of nothing but negativity – they revel in it!

    Ann Coulter undescores whats wrong with this nation. She embodies the partisan hatred that is pervasive in America. It will never end and until Democrats learn that and fight back they will continue to lose. Americans are like rats in a feeding frenzy. What a pathetic group of people we are.

    Who cares what she thinks and says. She's a scary but insignificant ranter who doesn't make sense. But very self-important.

    Coulter, like her partners in crime Limbaugh, Beck, O'Reilly, Palin etc. all have discovered that saying controversial and outrageous things generates lots of cash.

    NO ONE would listen to them if they weren't trying to out remark each other at the expense of people that don't agree with them.

    It's because only THEY know what's good for America. Anyone else with an opinion that disagrees with theirs is joked about, criticized and cajoled so they can make big bucks selling their books and giving $100,000 speeches.

    I have yet to hear one of them -even during the Bush years – say anything GOOD about AMERICA! Isn't it about time to either start liking the country you live in or move somewhere else? You guys certainly have enough money by now to live wherever you want.

    This is just too easy for here...

    Taking jabs at BHO and the Dems? That’s like shooting fish in a barrel....there is just so much to make fun of and it would be hilarious if it wasn't sooooooo scary that people actually believe the nonsense they spew!

    As much as I hate people like Ann Coulter, Sarah Palin, Dick Cheney and Newt Gingrich I have to say I hate the news media even more because they give coverage to these idiots. Not because it make the public more informed but because their sensational WWF approach to politics increases ratings.

    She didn't actually make any points? Just broad shots across the bow.

    So what? All this partisan banter is useless.

    She's found her true calling: Standup Comedian.

    Unfortunately, too many Americans take people like her and Rush seriously, even though they both admit that they are just entertainers, laughing all the way to the bank.

    There was a time when Coulter's schtick carried much more weight. But now, with the emergence of the Tea Party and the devolution of the GOP, everyone on the right has become an acerbic bomb-thrower. In a much more crowded field, her words kind of get lost in the cacophony.

    Great, thanks. More jokes, snide comments and name calling. Keep up the good work!

    Conservatives seem to have selective amnesia when comes to governing and fiscal responsibility. The party of NO lis laughable and Coulter has zero credibility on almost every issue.

    Ann Coulter; a lady (and I use that term loosely in regards to her) who has no scrupals, integrity, nor intelligence. She does what bullies in school do, name call, degrade, and tries to intimidate. She clearly believes Cheney and Bush are heros, and is afraid that Obama will take away her nice little tax break for the wealthy. She is a wanna be, with very little substance. I often wonder if people like her actually believe what they are saying or do they just spew words of hate to get attention. Shame on her.

    Bravo... I agree! Democrats are everything she said and worse.

    Never thought a person who hates Americans so much could hold sway over a group of people. Because although I am a Conservative American, Democrats are also Americans. We are all in the same boat. The polarized hate is bluring the lines. We are all Americans. Let us unite. People like Ann are looking for a paycheck at the expense of our country. Where are our leaders? Stop scaring them into the shadows and make them come out and take a stand instead of pouncing on ANYTHING that they say.

    Wow that was great! hit everything out of the park.

    I don't think SNL will have her host any time soon even though she is way more funny then any one else they find to host it.

    Nice Job ANN! take the fight to these liberal nut jobs!

    jokes and jabs at the administration. Does CPAC actually have any solutions rather than just complaining they aren't in power? Oh I almost forgot they ran the country into the ground in 8 years.....

    Coulter has done nothing in her life but bash people. Why do you give her any creditablity or coverage?

    big deal... hitler's comments stirred his crowd too... and, the grand dragon of the KKK manages to stir his crowd.. this isn't news !! i could stir a crowd of people who think exactly like me too.. how about finding something newsworthy to report !!!

    Oh, she's so funny! What a joke. Just what has a Republican ever done to help anyone other than themselves? If you look at budget deficits over the last century, Democrats have ALWAYS spent less. His Highness Reagan was the worst...Coulter is a bad joke.

    Conservative Political Action Conference? Is that a joke? Linking Conservative and action in the same sentence - is this a George Carlin routine?
