Ann Coulter: “Anyone Who Donates to Mitt Romney Ought to Call & Say If Andrea Saul Is Not Fired They Will Not Give Another Dime” (Video)

Ann Coulter called on Mitt Romney to fire spokesperson Andrea Saul after the campaign’s horrible response yesterday to the outrageous Obama-Soptic attack ad.

“And then we have Romney Campaign spokesperson Andrea Saul and her response was that, not that it was despicable, not that Romney had left Bain five years earlier, or that the woman died five years after the plant closed and did not even get insurance from her husband. Her response was, “Well if she had lived in Massachusetts with Mitt Romney’s health care plan she would have had health insurance.”

Anyone who donates to Mitt Romney and I mean the big donors should call and say if Andrea Saul is not fired and off the campaign tomorrow they’re not giving another dime. Because it is not worth fighting for this man if this is the kind of spokesman he has. By responding to an ad like this by citing health care in Massachusetts?… No, I’m serious about this. There’s no point you doing your show, there’s no point in us going to a convention and pushing for this man if he is employing people like this. This ad is the turning point and he has nearly snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.”

She’s right.
Playing kissy-kissy with Chicago thugs won’t win you an election.

Allahpundit added:

I think she’s irritated mainly because Saul is playing Obama’s game by treating the steelworker ad as legitimate. You don’t respond to a smear like that by addressing it on the merits; you respond by explaining why it’s a smear and how it reveals just what a fraud the Hopenchange aura is. It’s an opportunity to attack with righteous fury, and somehow Saul blew it by stepping on her own message with the health-care aside.

    Saw it. I also saw Hannity change the subject immediately. Michele Malkin basically said the same thing later in the show.

  • andrea saul and stephanie cutter; two perfect examples of how little the RNC and DNC care about the american people. just tell the fools anything to get them to vote for us. don’t worry about the truth.

  • Nanna

    I totally agree with Ann Coulter. I haven’t agreed with her on the Chris Christie for president thlng, but she is so right, along with Michelle Malkin, that Romney MUST start fighting back HARD. Not just pussy foot around like McCain did.

    Who the hell did not see this coming , Romney is just Bush ,Mcain ,Dole all roled up into a “lets all go along to gety along” RINO . This is why I left the Repubs. Weak, lazy, Stupid, cowardly. But hey lets all party while Rome burns!! There will be no tax reform, no immigration reform or repeal of obamacare . In fact I will bet anyone he will increase spending and increase the size and scope of the Gov.

  • Chris W.

    Nothing to do with reacting as if the ad was legitimate. The response is weak and unbelievably stupid because it is playing to Romneys biggest weakness: Massachussets Romneycare, which = Obamacare. How can Ropmney possibly run on an anti-Obamacare platform when his own spokespeople are expousing Obamacare-like (failed) programs?

    This woman is trying to sink Romney from the inside. The fix is in.

  • I agree, I agree, I agree!!! Woke up this morning after processing Malkin’s words on Hannity last night and I’m having a sick feeling that we will relive another 2008 WHIMPY McCain campaign. This time it’s way too important to BLOW IT! If the GOP hand this over to Obama, this time around, it’s all over for the hardworking “American citizens” who really care about our country. I want to slap Mitt, he needs to wake up and fight hard!!!

  • bear

    I used to like ann coulter, and then she endorsed romney over every actual Conservative.

    NOW she’s outraged at romney’s pathetic campaign?!!

    That spokesperson only said what she was told to say. Coulter and all the rino supporters should be doing a mea culpa, not blaming the messenger. By hollering, “It’s HER fault!” they are hoping to deflect this disaster from romney’s doorstep.

    This country needs a real man or woman in the WH, not a commie or Casper Milquetoast.

  • Jon

    Heartily concur. We want a LEADER, not another milquetoast pol like Dole/McCain/Ford. We want another Reagan. The Tea Party movement continues to grow precisely because true patriotic conservative Americans are sick and tired of idiots like McCain and Saul painting the bullseye on themselves, loading the magazine into the rifle, boresighting for accuracy, then wiping the dust from the weapon before putting it on a silver platter and handing it to the collectivist enemy and wishing them good luck as the leftist smear machine takes aim and fires. ENOUGH! Get rid of the pansies and start arming the warriors. WE WANT OUR COUNTRY BACK!

    forget his VP list..

    Karl Rove ought to be first on his “fire” list, followed by Andrea Saul..

    This explains it all: this Andrea Saul person came from the MCCAIN team, according to Coulter.

    Rule #1 – Take NO ONE from McCain. The stench of defeat should be enough of a tipoff.

    I can’t believe Team Romney let anyone from that losing team near his campaign. This woman even looked strange on TV – so much so that it had me trying to figure out who she was ’til Coulter explained it. In her eyes…something like no soul, life in them. Always wondered if the commiedems didn’t infiltrate McCain’s camp and, if so, this one looks like one of them. And she’s the “official spokesman!” DO NOT TRUST THIS WOMAN.

  • Glen Harness

    Is Coulter trying to rehab her image after completely going to the tank for Romney? Is she just now seeing what everyone else saw months ago?

  • Spider

    In some future campaign a true conservative will be the nominee, and it will be a beautiful thing to behold.

    The lefties and the RINO’s have to play a balancing act, that always fails and leaves them looking like hypocrites or worse.

    A true Conservative has the truth on his/her side, so doesn’t have to hedge or triangulate or do all the BS that we have grown so accustom to.

  • TXGuitarMan

    “Welcome to the party, pal!”

    Are we really supposed to believe, Ms. Coulter, that you JUST NOW are figuring out how toxic Mittends is to authentic conservatism and to our only really hope to take this country back from the abyss?

    Mittends should have been disqualified on the one point that he has to cede the entire issue of killing ObamaCare. Romney IS ObamaCare – why should anyone be surprised that one of his supplicants would run out with this idiotic comment that legitimizes the solcialist piece of trash and his health care scheme?

    I totally agree with those who say the fix is in and has been from day one on killing all conservative thought and candidacies. The establishment has never wanted a conservative in the WH and isn’t going to get one now. They know they have us under the barrel, willing to hold our nose and vote for the carbon-based life form with an (R) behind its name to get the socialist piece of trash out of the WH. They are thumbs their noses at us by giving us Mittends.

    Why get rid of this staffer? This is EXACTLY who he is going to surround himself with in the next admin, RINO types like himself. They are all just a few shades right of the socialist piece of trash in the WH.

    So save it, Ms. Coulter. You pushed for this RINO now eat it.

  • Ann Coulter was Bill Maher’s girlfriend and hangs out with Joy Behar. She endorsed RINOs in the Primary, dissed the conservative hopefuls, and went on air attacking Sarah Palin before Sarah announced a non-run in 2012 to try to force public opinion against Sarah.

    This loon Coulter, while I agree with her in this instance, is a self-promoting self-aggrandizing blowhard who should retire from public speaking.

    *sigh* We’re so-o-o-o-o screwed.

    I see a few good ads from the RNC and others, then the official campaign produces a lame-ass response to a terrible attack on the candidate – “he killed my wife;” resp: “Well with us she’d have had health insurance.” Good flaming grief!!

    I was beginning to get behind the Romney effort even though he’s a dyed in the wool RINO. I may stay home as I originally intended because I’m not going to waste the time and energy on McLame redux.

  • gracepmc

    Romney needs to get his message out regarding a plan of action for the country. His SuperPACs and campaign spokespeople need to fight the battles. Andrea Saul, who worked for McCain and Charlie Crist, is woefully inadequate in face of the Steffie Cutter, Mitt Romney might be a felon and a murderer hack. Romney needs to do some serious soul searching and house cleaning and come back prepared to win the election and defeat Obama. He needs to look at himself as a failing Olympics or a failing company and apply the same tactics to his own campaign — eliminate the weak links, hire the best, slice, dice, cut, and clean it up so that it can compete in the political marketplace and succeed well into the future. He has less than 90 days.

    Oh Ann, you wanted Romney so badly. You told us he was the only way to win. We told you that he was a terrible rino, and why he is no as bad as Obama he is still bad for the conservative cause.

  • I wrote here that this administration and this campaign are as filthy as anything Nixon put together. That’s why I titled the post “Dirtbag-in-chief runs filthy, disgusting campaign.”

Actions like “get along mitt” is doing is what she campaigned for. Mitt is not a conservative do don’t expect him to change into one. All he is IS OUR ONLY HOPE or saving our country. You got what you begged for ann so SHUT UP!!! Let Michelle and other real conservatives fight this battle. YOU HAVE NO STANDING HIPOCRIT!!!

  • Valerie

    Why is Ann Coulter bludgeoning an ally, instead of focusing on the real problem, which is dishonest reporting? Instead of asking that an ally be fired, she should be demanding that the Associated Press fire David Espo for lying or incompetence, take your pick.

    Here’s the article from the Associated Press by David Espo, that demonstrates journalistic malpractice.

    If you read this article, you will not be able to tell what all the fuss is about. That is because Mr. Espo chose to delete reference to the content of both the actual ad and the admittedly “sharp” criticism Saul offered, and instead report on a side comment.

    This article fails to answer the question “WHAT” happened.

    Ann Coulter’s solution to this kind of malpractice is to blame the speaker

    This is not normal, it is not ordinary, it is not right, and if this is the best our political reporters can do, they should be fired.

    Ann Coulter failed to inform herself, made an a$$ out of herself by assuming that, because the reporter failed to carry the bulk of a speakers comments that the speaker made no such comments.

    And she’s blamed an innocent party because a reporter chose to lie.

    Stupid Ann.

  • Patty

    Coulter was relentless, she had to make her point that Romney’s adviser saying the man’s wife should have lived in Mass. and would have had insurance? What a comment. Romney was essentially called a murderer.

    Coulter is correct and Romney’s adviser came from McCain’s campaign. What is wrong with this entire picture. Voters watching this are scratching their head. CALL THESE PEOPLE OUT POTTER FOR ONE. AND FIRE THIS ADVISER BECAUSE IF THIS IS REPRESENTATIVE OF A WINNER, YOU CAN FORGET ABOUT IT.

    Romney and his “advisers” need to “kick” it in high gear because essentially they aren’t seeing what the voters are, A AD THAT HAS BEEN LYING AND ACCUSING ROMNEY A MURDERER AND OBAMA IS OKAY WITH THAT.

    Andrea Saul has been accused of telling the truth, a first for a member of Team Romney.

  • Lee

    “In some future campaign a true conservative will be the nominee, and it will be a beautiful thing to behold.”

    If we don’t win this one, future campaigns will not matter much. Obamacare will be solidly in place and every person who revels in another government entitlement will scream shrilly at any hint of altering or repealing it. Socialism will be firmly entrenched, and the country will be even more rigidly planted on the path to economic collapse.

    If you think it’s bad now, wait until 2016 and thereafter. The Republicans will be a minor party puttering around at the fringes of the government. If you think Britain’s a mess now, it will be nothing in comparison to the US.

    I was the first on this forum to criticize the comment (posted on a different thread).

    But you must have been in a coma the last three months if you think Romney is campaigning like McCain. He’s been tearing Obama a new one left and right. The Obama campaign has been reduced to absurd accusations the Romney team has sliced and diced and everything they’ve thrown out there on the issues.

    This mis-step was the exception, not the rule. Don’t demoralize our side. What does it benefit anybody?

    Ann has her facts wrong. Saul did criticize the ad, but the reporter, one David Espo from the AP, chose not to convey what she said.

    David Espo’s failure to report is not the same thing as Saul’s failure to answer.

    I’ve got the proof in an article “Ad Sparks Campaign Furor” from the San Diego Union-Tribune in front of me right now. The article admits that Saul and others criticized the ad, but does not say what that criticism had been. Instead, it then turns to her response to another question.

    And, Ann Coulter fell for it.

  • Gary

    I can’t believe some of you fickle conservatives. It’s like you’re waiting to pounce on any misstep by the campaign to declare Romney a wimp or a traitor to the cause. One spokesperson gives the wrong answer, and now it’s patently obvious that Romney’s shilling for Obama’s re-election?

    Man, with friends like you all, who needs the main stream media attacks.

    It was a mistake. You’re reading a bit much into it. Or maybe it suits you to demoralize our side so you can feel validated in the opinion that Romney wasn’t the most conservative candidate.
    Congratulations, you knew what we all knew. Oh, and you got Obama re-elected, but nobody can call you wrong, huh?
    Grow up. November is around the corner and Romney’s under attack from enough sides. How about laying off from the inside?

    You know, our Republic is a grand experiment. Can people govern themselves? We all have heard the story about how Benjamin Franklin answered a woman who asked what sort of government we have. He answered, and I’m probably paraphrasing, “A Republic madam, if you can keep it.”

    Over the years, since our Republic’s beginning, and a hard-fought beginning, we have lost sight of just what an amazing creation our forefathers left us. We have squandered our legacy.

    Coulter needs to shut up. She constantly goes all loopy on RINOs, like Christie and Romney, and then complains when they take the mushy middle road. Rush just mentioned that the libs stick together and justify and defend this vile, nasty ad and other campaign tactics, while we conservatives and Republicans start squabbling among ourselves, playing into Dem hands.

    The campaign would do well to replace the McCain retread Saul and distance themselves from Rove. BTW – What happened to Sununu? He was great. They need to get him back – fast. Why not use Gingrich who has a wonderful way with words.

    His campaign’s lack of response to this scurrilous personal attack ad accusing him of murder – as well as coordinated accusations that he’s a felon and poisoner – is disturbing. He and his campaign really need to set their hair on fire really soon.

    Stop listening to idiots like Coulter.

    We need to circle our own wagons and help Romney and his campaign get the message right. We can’t change the candidate now. We had our chance. Now, we have to work to defeat the lying, thieving, treasonous tyrant.

    Once I found out that Ann Colter use to date Bill Maher, I dismissed her as a dumb As* with zero self worth and no common sense. However what she said about the Romney spokeswoman former McCain staffer being a ill equipped dolt and should be fired is right on.

    Ann Coulter is right! Why should so many of us support and work for Romney because we believe if Obama wins a second term the US will not survive?

    Is Romney this dense? I preached for months that our candidate should have been Newt Gingrich and now we are perhaps stuck with the wussie many thought he would be.

    No. Some of us are criticizing the most brain-dead answer this person could’ve ever given.

    You don’t legitimize a smear. You refute it and you attack it.

    The fact this person is so out of touch – and is a spokesperson for Romney – is legitimate cause for concern.

    If they can screw up such a simple thing so badly, gawd help us when something difficult comes down the pike.

  • Spider

    Saul needs to be repremanded, it was a mistake; a serious one.

    The facts of the ad have completely disintegrated, it is now a negative for Obie.

    The MSM is trying to draw equivalence with Mitt’s “Welfare” ad, saying both sides are lying.

    When the MSM says both sides are lying, you can be sure the dems are really, really full of sh*t, and the ‘pubs have scored a direct hit.

  • King

    The fact that Ann Coulter couldn’t foresee this being a problem with Romney as candidate is the reason no one takes Ann Coulter seriously anymore.

    Our opponents will stop at nothing and while Romney shows occasional glimmers of fight, for the most part his campaign has the similar tenor as McCains. Not good. There are so many things we can complain about…the msm…the clueless RNC…and so on. But ultimately, none of that changes things on the ground for all of us which is that we must do everything in our power to make sure Obama is not reelected. We have to work tirelessly every day, even if we feel frustrated. Anything less is unacceptable. As Dan Bongino (if you don’t know who he is check him out!) has said, if you’re not doing something, you’re part of the problem.

    Whereas the Repub party is the “party of STUPID,” the Romney campaign outdoes that and is the “campaign of IMBECILES.” Are these people trying to out-imbecile the imbeciles of the RINO TRAITOR AMNESTY-JOHN mccain campaign and help OBOZO’s election?

  • owl

    The PROBLEM is that Romney did not get rid of the Romneycare beatings during the primary. He needed to OWN it and say it was a mistake. END of story and the beatings.

    He didn’t. Now he still has to fight it.

    Me, I will still run to vote for him.

    MicahStone #87 August 9, 2012 at 1:31 pm

    that was more or less the consensus when the RNC first shoved Romney
    down our throats before anyone else had a chance to run.. but they had
    nothing to worry about, you see, they took short care of any competition
    via lies and innuendos, of which a lot of help came from way too many so
    called Conservative blogs, go figure..

    Right, because Ann Coulter never made a mistake or said anything under the pressure of the moment that she regrets.

    Saul’s answer was stupid, but it hasn’t really affected the overall reaction to the ad when even the wacko panel at MSNBC condemns it.

    Put her on probation, sure – but fire her? Try not to be a jerk.

  • guy

    I agree with Ann Coulter this woman is totally out of touch, she should had stand up first for the fact that Romney created millions of jobs, secondly for all the fraud and false facts in that add. She had no clue. I do not think that we can afford having someone like her as a speaker for the Romney campaign.
    Secondly I cannot imagine why no one in the campaign suggested someone to be present at Chick Fillet, or as Ted Cruz did order a meal from them. So simple, and it would have been a way to stand up for freedom of speech and against Thought Police. HOw could they have missed that opportunity… is a sin to be so politicaly blind.
    Why do not hire the Ted Cruz people to lift up the campaign, or Dick MOrris, —– someone with political feelings…
    I shall vote and work for ROmney but I would have been nice to know they are better than that woman. ….

    I loved Ann Coulter last night on Hannity – and I was with her on Romney since way back – so Andrea made a mistake. All campaigns make mistakes. Sometimes I think we expect perfection from these people.

    What I wish is that the Romney campaign would negotiate ways to get that bulldog – take no prisoners – Sununu on all the cable and even lamestream, prime time shows.

    I suspect they all have a clue about his effectiveness and they have put him on a “Do Not Call Back” blacklist.

    We need to do all we can to broadcast whatever this bulldog says. In fact – I wish HE were the VP choice for Romney……but I dream.

  • Jerry C

    So, let me see if I get this right.

    First, McLame purposely or idiotically lost to LUITPOS. His own people thru Sarah Palin under the bus at every opportunity.

    Second, McLame was one of the co-sponsors of the indefinite detention of american citizens bill recently passed. Did he change from a conservative since he last run?

    Third, the RNC selected Romney BEFORE the american people voted who they wanted for the Republican/Conservative Candidate. You believe we really have a choice?!

    Fourth, now Romney is running his campaign just like McLame a$$. Seems I’ve seen this fake crap before.

    Fifth, I am STILL expected to vote like a dhimmi for the RHINO Romney even though he’s no conservative what-so-ever; ABO. And you’re going to blame me if/when LUITPOS wins again?!

    Well, how ’bout I learn something new. Like, voting for a RHINO is actually voting for the same establishment big-government socialist power-freaks. You can kiss my vote goodbye for Romney.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, the jokes on me. I’ll cast my vote for who I believe is best for America. I’m no longer going to be herded to vote the way I’m told. And for those of you trying to blame me if/when LUITPOS wins re-election, how ’bout you blame the appropriate a$$wipes. You don’t blame a gun for killing people. Don’t blame me for voting who I believe is best for America. ABO my a$$. Jokes on you…again…again… again..

    For Jerry C. and others…we’re kinda like family here where we freely express our frustrations. But we have to know we’re going to stick together.

    Please don’t abandon the ship. Let the anger and distrust pass. Don’t think for even a minute that Romney is anything close to a BO.

    Yes, we all make mistakes. But it’s clear we’re fighting an enemy – who’s helped by a powerful source: MSM – that’s so vicious we CANNOT AFFORD ANY MISTAKES.

    Everyone on Team Romney MUST be at the top of their game every day. Team Romney has to expect the absolute worst from Team BO and be ready to counterpunch. This entire time BO has been painting a picture of Romney. He’s tried many, but they’ve been false to the point of the ridiculous.

    What picture has Romney painted of BO? None that I can see.

    This DISGUSTING ad should be the very thing – the proof – we’ve needed to show those undecideds the truth:


    And then list his lies. The betrayals. Especially those the undecided might have experienced but haven’t been willing to acknowledge. Or that they’ve never heard of…I talked recently to a very accomplished man with powerful friends/connections and he knew nothing of some of the things I told him. Busy, successful people have little time to do the digging we do. Or go beyond the usual media.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Oh I’ll vote for the man.

    I mean, what choice do I have?

    If he wins, somehow, despite a probable 30% Margin of Fraud (meaning we have to seriously and completely landslide his butt over 71%), by us pushing the unwilling candidate over the line by pure force of votes, he’ll still be the first to call for a recount.

    Romney will do whatever it takes to lose. Watch and learn. It’ll be popcorn-time.

    It already is.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    (Re: M.O.F.)

    If Obama gets, in reality, 40% of the vote — if I’m right, with a MOF of 30%, it will look like he got 70%.

    That’s all the dead-people votes, all the felon votes, all the overseas illegal votes, all the fraud that is inevitable with the Spanish company which will, for some completely f**ked-up reason, counting our votes, and all the military votes tossed out, and then all the many, many “found” votes in the inevitable recount.

    I’ll vote for Romney, of course.

    Then I’ll watch all this f*&ked-up charadery and kabuki and watch Obama win.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    Greg Louganis never dove like Romney’s about to do.

  • When Coulter came out for Romney a good while ago I said that she had “gone over to the dark side”. Romney is no real conservative.

    I’m sure that she is realizing by now that Romney will if elected be a wimp and a disappointment.

    My hope is that we will take back the senate.

    I swear to loving God, and I make it a point never to swear, if I hold my nose & everything that’s holy and vote for this RHINO POS and he wins but does the same crap LUITPOS has been doing, I swear to loving God I won’t vote again. I am sick & tired of playing this DemonRat/RHINO crap coin toss. Might as well put 100% in God & let this world burn. LUITPOS is pushing America to communist/fascist full speed while DemonRats like Clinton, Reid, Pelosi, etc…, push a little less. And we got the RHINOs acting like they give a f&#* when it’s all controlled. Our Tea Party put some peeps through but they’ve been a major let down. This election may seem like it’s for all the marbles but it’s the same-old con game. I know when I’ve been played and I’m getting sick of it. Rant over. God bless America or curse us to hell.

  • mcc

    Glad to hear back from you, Jerry. I think I’ve been in your place of anguish and despair. Even hearing a muttered “Give me liberty or give me death” a few times lately…so I’m trying to exercise faith and be more hopeful.

    I don’t know what’s in store for us, but I do know our goal right now is to beat Obama. There are Republicans in office – maybe not as many as we’d like – that we can trust and we have to hope they’ll prevail in guiding Romney toward more conservatism should he be elected. Remember them when things look bad.

    Most important, if you’re a man of faith, keep asking Him to protect us. Uuuh! And can’t forget the biggie: help us to forgive our enemy. That’s the one I don’t do often enough. Soften our hearts, Lord, toward those who simply do not see. Those who’ve never known You. If they did, we know they wouldn’t do or say or think the things they do.

    Hugs, Jerry, wherever you are…

  • Nomark

    I am a very long time supporter of Ron Paul and I had convinced myself to support Romney, no matter how sick I would be on Nov 6th. I planned on taking in a barf bag with me to contain the spillage after I voted.

    Now this… Romney and Obama are the same. Just different perspectives of the same agenda. People see what they want to see.

    If the pundits like Ann Coulter & Michelle Malkin had just supported Ron Paul in the beginning, we would not be in this mess.

    Now we (the American people, the Constitution, our heritage) all lose. No matter who wins, Romney or Obama, we’ll get a progressive who will just finish the job.

    At least Ann has the courage to call out Romney. Romney only has one way to win (and I’m not talking about just the election, or my vote, but the entire “tea party” vote) and that is pick Rand Paul or one of the other strict Constitutionalists from the 2010 election for VP. Obamacare is what galvanized people to join together and it exposed the progressives agenda.

    We think we have a champion “on our side” to fight the good fight. But what this shows is we are the punching dummy and it’s not Left vs Us, or Right vs. Us. It’s US vs both the left and right and we are being beaten to death from both sides.
