Conservatives Meet And Ann Coulter Endorses Mitt Romney for President

The more than 6,000 conservatives just got together in Washington D.C. for a three day Conservative Political Action Conference, CPAC They spent a bit of time blasting President Bush for not being conservative enough like their late hero Ronald Reagan. Among the speakers were Rudy Guiliani, Mitt Romney, Sam Brownback, Duncan Hunter, Mike Huckabee, Tom Tancredo, V.P. Dick Cheney, Sean Hannity, Tom Delay, Newt Gingrich, Ann Coulter, and others. The one major candidate not present was John McCain. Duncan Hunter talked about building fences, because according to him immigration is the most important issue in 08. He also spoke about unfair trade policies, mostly with China, and the Iraq war. Hunter said this about the war, and America’s interest in the world “If the Democrat leadership in the United States House of Representatives wants to cut off reinforcements or cut off supplies for our troops in need on the battlefield, our troops will never forgive them and the American people will never forgive them.”….”There can be no debate about the fact that it is in our interest to expand freedom around the world.” Mike Huckabee tried to win the crowd over with humor by calling CPAC the, “Conservative Presidential Anxiety Conference,” with all it’s members saying, “Dude, where’s my candidate?” Huckabee also said, “I hear people say that, well, the only thing that’s going to matter in this election is celebrity and money — who has the most familiar name and who’s raised the most money,” he said. “My dear friends, may I say to you that if celebrity and money are the criteria to be President of the United States, then Paris Hilton might be our next president.” Huckabee pointed out that he was different from the other candidates. He also spoke about the Islamic terrorist for a bit, saying, “There can be no negotiation with radical Islamic fascists…They are not interested in detente, they are not interested in some type of peaceful coexistence. They are solely interested in…our absolute annihilation and destruction.” Mitt Romney was there too, and he brought along a handful of paid college students to cheer and vote for him. Bringing the kids along helped Romney because he won the straw poll. He fed the CPAC faithful a good dose of cutting taxes, stopping abortions, anti-immigration, and reducing the size of government. He introduced columnist Ann Coulter, who spoke after him, by saying, “I’m happy to learn that after I speak you’re going to hear from Ann Coulter. That’s a good thing. I think it’s important to get the views of moderates.” So that means he thinks he is right of little miss Coulter. Strangely enough he doesn’t include the Coulter remarks on his websight where he has excerpts from his CPAC speech. Miss Coulter’s comments actually garnered more attention than any of the Presidential candidates. In one of her common hate speeches Coulter was talking about Democratic candidate John Edwards. Coulter said, “I was going to have a few comments on the other Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, but it turns out you have to go into rehab if you use the word ‘faggot,’ so I — so kind of an impasse, can’t really talk about Edwards.” Coulter has in the past called other Democrats gay, once saying she would put even money on Hillary Clinton “coming out of the closet” in 08, she said Bill Clinton showed “some level of latent homosexuality,” and has called Al Gore “a total fag.” Coulter also endorsed Romney as the next best candidate for conservatives, saying, “Romney is the best candidate we have,”……”He tricked liberals into voting for him. I like a guy who hoodwinks the voters so easily.” That is a good quality? Newt Gingrich spoke about how republicans were smarter that democrats. He wants to make English the official language. He also talked about Hurricane Katrina a bit and blamed the people of New Orleans 9th ward for their distress by saying, “How can you have the mess we have in New Orleans, and not have had deep investigations of the federal government, the state government, the city government, and the failure of citizenship in the Ninth Ward, where 22,000 people were so uneducated and so unprepared, they literally couldn’t get out of the way of a hurricane.” Rudy Guiliani spent some time invoking Reagan. He used Reagan’s “peace through strength,’’ when talking about combatting terrorist. He tried to adress the issue of his changing policies by saying, “You and I have a lot of common beliefs that are the same and some that are different. … We don’t all agree on everything. I don’t agree with myself on everything.’’ Guiliani had this to say about Iraq, “Our desire right now is to have peace, and maybe we made a mistake in calling this the war on terror. This is not our war on them. This is their war on us”.…“This war is over when they stop planning to come here and kill us. When that ends, the war is over.’’ It is a shame that Ann Coulter’s remarks overshadowed this whole event. They knew her hate when they invited her though, and they applauded and laughed when she said it. It just like the old saying goes, if you lay with dawgs, you might get fleas.
