Ann Coulter Discusses Newly Released Book

Last night, Ann Coulter joined Sean Hannity on Fox News to discuss her new book, Never Trust a Liberal Over Three — Especially a Republican. In Coulter’s newest collection of political essays, she targets the Tea Party, establishment Republicans, news media, and liberals, of course.

Coulter’s main focus in last night’s discussion with Hannity was the topic of Republican elections. In Coulter’s opinion, Republicans have focused too much on being “ideologically pure” and not enough on actually winning elections: “We’ve lost a lot of Senate elections. This is not a party that seems overly concerned with winning elections.”

So what does Coulter blame for this lack of election-winning? Tea Party members, establishment Republicans, and Republican consultants: “My argument is that, in chapter one here, is the problem is we have hucksters, shysters, people running off the Republican Party for their own self-aggrandizement, for their own egos, to make money. I would put Todd Akin, Newt Gingrich, Liz Cheney, Mark Sanford all in the same boat. Oh, and the consultants who persuaded Linda McMahon and John Raese to run …”

Coulter had an exceptional vendetta against Liz Cheney, stating, “Why should we be having — and I love Liz Cheney— but why should we be having a rancorous primary against a good Republican senator other than for Liz Cheney’s ego?” Sean Hannity took exception to this statement, stating that Liz Cheney had to run because she was more conservative, another point to which Coulter disagreed.

In a book review on HumanEvents.com, a site that frequently hosts Coulter’s articles, the authors states that Coulter urges Republicans to stop focusing on the “ideological purity” of its candidates, and simply focus on winning elections instead. This viewpoint is also reflected in her interview with Newbusters, in which Coulter blasts Mark Sanford for running for Representative when he had a tarnished reputation and could have potentially cost the Republicans a seat.

The book review also stated that Coulter is essentially asking Republicans to adopt Democratic tactics, such as the creation of strong narratives instead of talking points, without adopting their ideologies. Coulter’s call for winning more seats also stems from the experience with a Democratic super-majority at the beginning of Obama’s first presidency.

In the interview with Hannity, Coulter lambastes Obama and the Democrats for pushing through the vote for the ACA when they had 60 members in the Senate. Coulter believed that the move went against the majority of American beliefs. However, Coulter’s move to win more elections to be able to control the government represents the same ideology she is criticizing.

Moves like this demonstrate the fact that Coulter simply seeks to take advantage of any opportunities which come her way. Another prime example of Coulter’s shameless opportunity-grabbing deals with her stance on affirmative action. On her website, Coulter states, “Merely to be eligible for millions of dollars in grants from the federal government under Obamacare, education and training programs are required to meet racial, ethnic, gender, linguistic and sexual orientation quotas. That’s going to make health care MUCH better!”

Yet, in the before-mentioned interview with Newsbusters, Coulter praises Nixon for instituting quotas to hire blacks in the 1960’s: “Reading about the building trades back them, once you get to the part of Nixon saying, “That’s it. I’ve had it. We’re imposing quotas, timelines, on the building trades or they’re not going to get federal contracts,” I’m suddenly totally on his side.”

      Thank goodness for Ann Coulter’s books-didn’t Barack write a bookabout himself? That’s ego!

      • Susan

        you buffoon.

      • Susan

        Yes several books are detachment from ego. One is ego. Well explained, grasshopper, well explained…..

      Ann is the second coming of the Virgin Mary!

    Why don’t Ann Coulter and Sarah Palin just get married already?!?

  • http://Yahoo ed

    She is total proof that if you want to make a ton of money in this country these days, just start spounting crap and become a hater of everyting, you will have a great following and a bunch of bobble heads going up and down areeing with you, next you got some real money.

    Ann is usually right on the money. This reviewer ( a meta-review, a review of reviews) is clearly not a fan of Ann.
    I will check out her book myself. I have difficulty believing Ann would endorse the unprincipled say-and-do-anything-for-the-vote strategy.
    She is strongly Pro-Life. The test of her convictions would be whether or not she recommends hopeful Republicans in blue/purple states to obfuscate on abortion.

    • Susan

      Hey Atlas you know your hero Ayn Rand was an atheist who believe in a woman’s right to an abortion right?

  • Reality

    This woman is crazy. Always has been. In fact, anyone who believes extremely in a particular political party is a nut because time and time again, politicians have proven they are all the same behind closed doors.

    Political parties only serve to do two things: 1) Divide the masses and weaken the power of the masses 2) Make sure that change does not happen – doing nothing is literally a tactic for them

    All Politicians are the same. They go to the same schools, share the same benefits, invest in the same companies, join the same clubs, date/marry from the same circles, and are members of the 1% richest people in the country. The politicians do not care because nothing they do effects them. They send your kids to war and not theirs. They have great healthcare and you don’t. They have guaranteed pensions and you have nothing. They are not being spied on but you are. They are not losing their jobs but you are. Do I need to continue?

      She’d make a great EVa Braun to Rick Santorum as Fuhrer in 2016!

    ms coulter has more sense in one finger than the entire obummer fiasco

      Calling the subject of your opinions a “witch” is childish name calling in this article.(photo of Ann Coulter is tagged “Ann Coulter Witch” by this website) The argument’s veracity is rendered suspect by the fallacy “argumentum ad hominem”. It also indicates the writer is afraid, since her compelling positions, to the writer, then make her look better than otherwise.

      As a Christian very Conservative forced to live in corrupt liberal leftist nyc (only nice to visit) I’m fascinated in Miss Coulter because the liberal left are destroying America by aiding millions of illegal aliens who steal jobs from many unemployed young Spanish Americans and the left kisses up to dangerous Communist regimes like China, Vietnam and Venezuala all Stalinist.
      I would like valid comments to my comment

    • Susan

      Let me guess, you’re a Harvard man?

  • pedro pablo cabal

    To criticize Ms Coulter you have to be a professional and well read individual; this particular Lady is very inteligent, well documented, courageous and straight-forward. I believe, without doubt of being wrong, that the writer of this column does not have what it takes to confront Ms Coulter; I hope he gets a cookie from the rest of the incompetent media.

    • Brian Powell

      I would be more than happy to confront Ms. Coulter. See if you can arrange that for me, Mr. Pedro Pablo Cabal.

    • eric

      To answer Brian Powell
      You’re a biased liberal leftist attacking Miss Coulter who documents 99% of what she says because she’s a lawyer.
      explain how nyc where I live is infected with biased liberal leftists and has a 10-15% unemployment because many can’t find jobs while three black areas in Brooklyn are high crime combat zones that has daily shootings and armed robbery every day.
      nyc also has the highest taxes in America and the worst corrupt politicians in America documented by a 2004 report by the liberal left NYU law school/ Brenan justice center I can mail anyone as proof as the ny daily news editorial had a rare full editorial on it in 2004 from the NYU report.

      • Brian Powell

        Ann Coulter is a political pundit, writer, and columnist. She may have a law degree, but she is no lawyer. Even if she was, she would not document 99% of what she says because what she says is opinion, not fact.

        As to the rest of your comment, it is difficult to understand what you are trying to state. I don’t really grasp your argument…

        This article is not meant to represent my political beliefs, but rather the fact that Ann Coulter is a hypocritical, opportunistic loon. She flip-flops on her opinions constantly, simply to make a few bucks. That’s all.

        • Ted

          “The article is not meant to represent my politic beliefs,”

          Then you failed miserably. Your article is just as much an opinion piece as her book.

      • Susan

        Yes all lawyers speak the truth (except the biased liberal ones) And Barak Obama clearly has it in for NYC. You are a genius.

  • Sean Hannity

    There must only be one party, an ultra-conservative Republican party. We must have a White Fundamentalist Christian military dictatorship and exterminate all non-Whites, non-Christians and non-Conservatives except those we can use as slaves. Heil Jesus and the White master race!

    • Tara Rebeck

      that would be funny if it wasn’t so sadly true

  • Jeff

    She’s part of the problem. She preaches hatred and narrow-minded ethnocentricity. But it sells to the ignorant.

    • Play Nice.

      She has a pretty good gig. Spew hatred without accountability towards others who don’t share her views and here is Ann’s book on her enraged ideology for just $19.95! ORDER NOW!

    • Susan

      Yes I love how she talks about large egos taking down the Republican party. Has she looked in a mirror? I mean besides the one she snorts cocaine off of. Yes, Ann – some of us remember you crawling across the floor at Studio 54….

  • RL

    Do I seriously have to point out that what Nixon did was in the 1960’s and that it’s now 2013? Seriously? How can you not get that?

  • Tara Rebeck

    Don’t throw a bucket of water on Ann Coulter, she will melt! There’s a portrait of a hideous blonde ghoul named Ann Coulter in a closet somewhere. Ann Coulter is a closeted, self-hating gay man in drag. First we had polythene Pam, now we have Teflon Ann. She loves ’em and leaves ’em and then backstabs ’em. Every day she hates the people she was in bed with the night before. Haters hating haters, where will it end? Where will the mendacity end? Stop the sideshow, hater shock jock knee jerk Neocons, reopen the government and raise the frikkin’ debt ceiling you overpaid “monkeys”!

  • Tara Rebeck

    Only a truly ignorant and narrow-minded person would be insensitive enough to call the president a monkey. Didn’t they teach you manners or American history in that Bangkok transvestite whorehouse that you crawled out of to work on Fox News? Stupid Byach.

  • Rob S.

    Why doesn’t he, Coulter, take some of the blame too? Yes, I said he.

    • Mary Ridenhour

      I just wish she would lose the black eyeliner, cover up that goose-like neck with some flattering blouses, and yes, a haircut wuold be in order. She’s an idiot, too, but we can’t fix stupid. That’s why I focused on these other things.

  • Tara Rebeck

    Can’t wait ’til Ann Coulter goes in the sunlight and turns to dust a la Dracula.

  • Tara Rebeck

    Ann Coulter, poster-replicant for Yeat’s verse “The best lack all conviction/and the worst are full of passionate intensity.” The last thing the world needs is another hardcover diatribe on specious extremist ideology. It’s so 1985, can’t anyone come up with anything new?

    • Teresa Brawley

      Well, then why don’t you try?

  • eunice

    Like many of Coulter’s books I’ve seen in the past, this volume will end up collecting dust on Goodwill Stores’ shelves throughout the country! Way to go, dude! XD

    She should look in the mirror for the reason they lost the elections. Her horse face didn’t help.

  • Kevin

    LMAO at Coulter as she proves herself to be a RINO. She is about as conservative as Obama is. It’s funny how her and Grover Norquist are attacking the Tea Party folks because they can’t control them and they pose a real threat to the establishment and the cushy gigs of Boehner, McConnell, and the Dem Lites.

    ok let’s admit it. coulter is really a man.
