    She sure has her talking points and the lies that back them up down pat. Who pays her?

    What happened to the GOP? They were once honorable – think Dwight Eisehhower. Now they hope our President along with our country fail so they can win. They lie to constituents telling them they’ll overturn Roe v. Wade, shrink government, rein in spending, yet do the exact opposite in office. Are the people who keep voting for them nuts?

    They court the tea party, where one organizer in WA State last week said she would like to hang their Senator Patty Murray. We're being destroyed by their policies, yet the ignorant masses can't or won't see it. What happens to us if they take back control? Do they finish driving us off that cliff, in favor of corporations? And how long can corporations survive without a middle class, which GOP policies are destroying?

    Nothing will drive the country back to moderation, rationality and "get it done" bipartisan pragmatism faster than the fear that the extremist loonies (Coulter, Beck, Hannity, Limbaugh et al) and their lesser-known counterparts on the left will have their way and do absolutely nothing for anybody, not even themselves, ever.

    Sure some people are angry and have a right to be. But screaming, name-calling and obstructionism do not a country make.


    More! More!

    Ann Coulter continues to be the one of the Democrats best weapons. Her continuous hateful comments send people fleeing from the Republican party in droves. She is the perfect representative of the Conservatives and why they are destroying the Republican Party.

    She is just desperately trying to make as much money as
    possible in the most pseudo-provokative, corny, uninformed and
    tasteless way possible.
    She knows more than Sarah Palin, but apart from that they are very
    much alike.
    Good luck GOP!!

    Ann Coulter should get a life outside politics as her comments continue to be boring and amount to very little.

    Typical wannabe whatever...attacking her fellow americans personally during a lame attempt at humor. How sad and unnecessary just to get some attention. I am sure that my america finds it difficult to care if you are proud of us or not. I am so sorry that you feel so vulnerable as to demean others in order to build yourself up. Sick, sick, sick!

    Ann Coulter is hilarious – an extremist with a great sense of humor. We could use more like her on all sides of the debate instead of the usual crowd of dour and sour critics.

    If it wasn't for liberals and feminists, Ann Coulter would be in a kitchen some where barefoot and pregnant.

    I'm going to admit right off the bat that I haven't even read Ms. Coulter's rousing speech. Please explain to me why the GOP seems to want to turn back the clock on everything from race relations to women's right to choose and to economic policies that failed miserably in the past. Regarding Ms. Coulter: when she stated that Jews are imperfect Christians, the book should have been closed on her. But it shows where the GOP's "heart" really is. Shame on you Eric Cantor for not denouncing this type of rhetoric from your allies. You're fooling yourself if you think that you are a true member of that club. Face it folks, the GOP would be more than happy if America was strictly inhabited by straight(not gay) conservative Christians. That's one membership I would be ashamed to seek. That being said, the Democrats better get their act together or it's lights out.

    Time to get a real job and really earn your keep like the greater majority of Americans, honey. Your acid tongue and inflammatory rhetoric is not only a tired act, but increasingly un-American, anti-democracy and anti-human.

    Ann Coulter is a joke. She and Palin are cut from the same cloth. They make their living as entertainers. The more stupid and outrageous statements they make – the more books they sell and the more money they make.
    They have no real values or convictions. They are just on the ride to make themselves rich. They crawl out from under their rock when they think people are forgetting about them.
    They appeal to the ignorant who don't know history or the facts and use their stupidity for their personal profit. Coulter is laughing all the way to the bank.

    Good ole Annie -- Just another blantant lying, right-wing extremist Republican. The next time we hear a tad of truth spilling out of Ann's mouth, will be the first time.

    “Bush will give us a free market in oil so we can afford to keep the lights on.” Ann Coulter.

    this is all we need to know about ann.

    why is it the right wants to keep us reliant on oil and gas from countries that hate us.

    lenin said "we will hang the capitalist and they will sell us the rope."

    terrorists say "we will destroy the great satan america and sell them the oil to finance it"

    why is the right so pro radical islamic terroristism.

    Ann Coulter makes Pat Buchanan seem warm and fuzzy. It's interesting that hate-mongering is considered humorous these days.

    The was the worst stand-up routine I have ever seen. Even the CPAC crowd couldn't keep faking laughs after a while. It is amazing how unfunny republicans are.

    Many on the Right like to say that Bush was criticized by the Left relentlessly during his administration, so its just as fair they do the same to Obama. I'd like to point out that the complaints levelled at Bush were reactions to actions he had taken: no WMD's, torture, warrantless wire taps, tampering with the Justice Dept., and all the rest. Conservatives attack Obama often for little or o reason at all. The day after the election I was listening to a conservative radio program where one the speakers said they were declaring open warfare on his presidency. The man hadn't even served one day yet! On his innaugaration, Limbaugh says he hopes the President fails. The Tea Party hold their first rally after Obama's been in office only one month. The President wants to give a speach to school children about the importance of education and hard work and the conservatives start screaming that he's trying to brainwash and indoctrinate our children without hearing a single word. They even attacked him because he once requested french mustard on his hamburger. They're criticizing him based on his choice of condiments, for cripes sake!

    No one can be wrong a 100% of the time! Hell, even HItler made the trains run on schedule.

    The Right are also absolute hypocrites in many of their attacks. They criticize Obama for things like using a teleprompter, having czars, or trying terrorists in civilian courts. But Bush did the exact same things and they were perfectly fine with it when he was President. The Left attacked Bush for what he did. The Right attacks Obama for what he is: a black Democrat and not a white Republican.

    NEWS ALERT !!!!

    The right wingnuts are spreading the word to all their worshipers that Liberals or Progressives are to be now referred to as "SECULAR SOCIALISTS".

    The right-wing al quaeda hides in the shadows and makes up things to get themselves in power.
