Ann Coulter: “Hucksters” and “Shysters” Harm PartyBy: Lacy Langley - October 16, 2013
There’s no question that, when it comes to governing our nation, there have been rampant mistakes made on both sides of the “aisle”. These have become especially apparent in the last few weeks with the Congress debacle. But the Republican party seems to be having a particularly hard time of it, as of late. Who can say why? Oh, right. Ann Coulter can.
The controversial columnist did an interview with Fox’s Sean Hannity, in which she was promoting her new book, Never Trust a Liberal Over Three — Especially a Republican , and giving her two cents on the state of the party.
“The problem is we have hucksters, shysters, people ripping off the Republican Party for their own self-aggrandizement, for their own egos, to make money,” she said. “I would put Todd Akin, Newt Gingrich, Liz Cheney, Mark Sanford all in the same boat, and the consultants who persuaded Linda McMahon and John Raese to run.”
Wow. Liz Cheney? Really?
“I love Liz Cheney,” Coulter said, “But why should we be having a rancorous primary against a good Republican senator other than for Liz Cheney’s ego?”
When Hannity challenged her comment by saying that Cheney was simply “more conservative,” Coulter disagreed.“No, she isn’t. But that’s the point. There are a lot problems, we are not concentrating on winning, we are allowing shysters to take advantage of the Republican Party.”
Well, she’s not famous for mincing words. Coulter specifically said some GOP consultants are not looking out for the future of the party.“We’ve lost a lot of Senate elections,” she said. “This is not a party that seems overly concerned with winning elections.”
Hannity defends those attacked, explaining that they are only doing what their constituents wanted them to do, and that is to take down Obamacare.
So, what is the real deal with the Republican party these days? Will they be able to pull it together and unite their followers into one solid party? And will they be able to do that in time? I guess we shall see…
