Ann Coulter on last night’s debate: “You want this man in the White House”

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Ann Coulter was one of the first conservatives in the media to say that Mitt Romney was going to be “the guy” for the GOP. She got a lot of heat for saying he was the best choice and Republicans best chance to win.

It looks like Ann was right.

“It was a bloodbath last night,” Glenn said to Ann when she joined them on radio this morning.

“Yes, it was,” she responded. “And as I said earlier this week to you, I thought just letting people get a look at him, what you and I have seen in him: he’s smart, he’s prepared, he’s poised.”

Not only did Mitt Romney win the debate hands down, he was able to present himself to the American people. So many Americans that aren’t tuned into to politics only know what the mainstream media is saying about Mitt Romney. Last night he was able to present himself to the average American.

“People are just shocked to actually see Mitt Romney utterly in control of the facts and competent, and you so want that man in the White House.  The way he explains things with facts and figures, but not in a confusing way,” Ann said. “And he just comes across as an incredibly decent man.  There’s no elitism.  There’s no, “Oh, he reminds me of my first husband” business.  He was charming, he was friendly.  Even when he was criticizing Obama policies, he always did it with a smile on his face, and it reminds me of during the primaries when I was a big Romney supporter and many of my friends and colleagues were not, and every time they would see Romney give a full speech such as after he won the Iowa caucus and then after he won New Hampshire, different people would say to me at different times, “Wow, that was the best speech he’s ever given.  If he would only give them like that all the time.” He does!  Watch him.”

No one was really sure what Mitt Romney was going to do in this debate. The media, by underestimating him, actually raised the bar for what President Obama had to do as a result. But, no on expected the poor performance that Barack Obama gave last night. Glenn compared it to Al Gore’s former presidential debate performances – the heavy sighs.

“He kept looking down and frowning,” Glenn said. “Where Romney would look at the president, he addressed him in the eye, looked him in the eye the whole time.  It’s one thing to say something about somebody behind their back.  It’s another to look them in the eye and kindly say, “Mr. President, you’re wrong.” And he did. When Obama was trying to dish it, which was about four-seconds, when he was trying to dish it, he wouldn’t look Romney in the eye.  He really wouldn’t go after him and look him in the eye like a man.”

Not only was Mitt Romney’s demeanor stronger and more presidential, but his appearance was much stronger.

“I mean, Obama looks like a guy who has grown ‑‑ who’s lost so much weight, he’s wearing a suit that’s too big for him.  He looks anemic,” Ann added. “I seriously am wondering whether he’s trying to communicate to us that he doesn’t want this job anymore.”

One of the most telling parts of the debate for the president was the closing.

“Thank you. And I want to thank Governor Romney because I think this was a terrific debate and I very much appreciate it. All those things are designed to make sure that the American people, their genius ‑‑ their grip, their determination is channeled. And they have an opportunity to succeed.  And everybody’s getting a fair shot and everybody’s getting a fair share.  Everybody’s doing a fair share and everybody’s playing by the same rules.”

After hearing the audio clip, this is what Ann had to say: “As I think Romney pointed out to him that it was relatives and friends and donors to the Obama campaign that were getting all these massive grants for green companies that then went under, another fantastic line ‑‑ sorry, we’ll get back to what you think the point was.  Another fantastic line was when Romney said about Solyndra and all these green companies that have lost, he said, you know, one of my friends said, “You don’t just pick winners and losers.  You pick all losers”.”

Glenn believes that after the president’s performance last night, we’re about to see a full assault on the senses of the American people. The media and the administration’s candidate is in trouble, and they’re going to have to unleash.

“What do you think is coming?” he asked Ann.

“I have been anticipating, and the reason I wrote the book [Mugged], that there would be a lot of racial Mao Maoing again trying to guilt Americans into reelecting the first half‑black president and I don’t know, maybe they’ll give up on that now,” she responded. “I must say, and I hate to even mention it because it sounds like, you know, conservative paranoia, but it is simply a fact that no book of mine has been so ignored, completely ignored.  I mean not even attacking me when I’m not there, as this book.”

“The mainstream media does not want anyone to know this book exists.”

    Glenn, you’re slow getting videos up. This was a STUNNING victory!

  • MarsBarsTru7

    Ann Coulter, I love you and agree with you that Romney won handily. I agree that he seems like a very competent man. Distinctly better than Obama. But, I also disagree. I do not want this man as my President any more than I want Obama as my President. Thank you, but no thank you.

    Just curious, who do you want as President? Not trying too be sarcastic. I commend you on your posts on the Golden Dawn thread.

  • landofaahs

    Don’t under estimate the power of envy. I see a double down on charge of racism, classism and genderism. A howard Dean moment is coming.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    I want someone with integrity, someone that will adhere to the Constitution, and someone that represents an actual improvement in terms of shrinking the size and scope of our federal government significantly.

    Sarah Palin, Bachmann, Santorum, and Ron Paul all represent such choices, to different degrees and each in their own way. I’d vote for any of them. But, since they aren’t the GOP choice and they’ve almost all got behind Romney at this point, I’m forced to choose from what is left. I’m going to end up writing in a candidate. I still don’t know who it will be. Probably Ron Paul. I just know that I will not choose “the lesser of two evils”. I will not be forced to choose between two candidates, neither of which I am willing to support and neither of which represent me.

    I will not choose between a crap sandwich with Swiss cheese and a crap sandwich with Jack cheese.

    And to those who would ask, “How could you bring yourself to throw away your vote?” I respond, “Have you stopped beating your wife yet?” (Groucho Marx)

    My vote is only “thrown away” because the vast majority of the population of this country allows themselves to be forced to vote for one of two candidates. I hold myself blameless for lemmings throwing themselves off a cliff.

    Romney won hands down; now the Democrats and Obama will use a hyper-war response on him to try and destroy him completely. There will be no end to the mess and means used, fabricated or implied, that their lies will encompass – all bets are off now with the Left.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    All too clear at that, there will be no mercy shown by the left and Team Obama; they cannot afford to lose – jailtime awaits many if Obama does.

  • Anonymous

    I also want someone with integrity and one who adheres to the constitution. I like Ron Paul too. I am going to vote for Mitt Romney because I do think he has integrity, and is the person who can turn the financial downward spiral around. People are really hurting. It’s up too we the people to make our constitution relevant again. I respect your opinion and choice. Thanks for responding. You really do write some excellent posts.

  • landofaahs

    They will regroup and tell him in advance what the questions will be and then tell him what to say like the good puppet he is.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    Thank you. I respect your opinion as well. Be well.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    At the very least, this much is true.

  • SoThere

    The strings have been cut to Pinocchio and he fell on his face. Without a teleprompter and someone telling him what to say and writing his stuff Obama’s just a puppet laying on the floor and the country saw that for the first time last night.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    Land – considering the attitude of Obama last night, and the true narcissism of his as well, I wonder if they tried to prepare him thus, and he still refused to go along with his own team.

    Obama set himself up for defeat in the battle; Romney has been a major success in business – domestic and foreign – and the economy in all aspects is HIS home ground.

    On the matter of foreign policy, I think Romney will hold a surprise edge as well.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    - Jail time awaits many if Obama (loses).

    As much as anything else, this is oh so important. Without this step in the process law and order can not prevail.

    I’m probably wrong, but if things keep going bad for this clown in the country and world, along with his debate showing, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the election cancelled. The left right now is probably doing things that will result in this. They want Obama in for life.

  • Anonymous

    The occasionally ludicrous responses and excuses from the left were most entertaining. Ann has been right about Romney from the start. I have always seen him as a man of integrity. I followed what he did to rescue the Olympics in Salt Lake City and as Governor in Massachusetts and think that he will do a great job as President. Now, if the rest of the Republican Party will quit being such wimps and “go along to get along” fools, we might be able to save the country from disaster.

    “He looks anemic,” Ann added. “I seriously am wondering whether he’s
    trying to communicate to us that he doesn’t want this job anymore.”
    This is what my wife said after the debate. I thought the same type of thing: Obama to Obama: “I could retire, play golf and vacation and give speeches and get those adoring fans to listen and not have to do anymore of this “president” crap-e-ola.

    I understand your motivation BUT I’m just asking, isn’t your desire NOT to vote FOR Romney, you are helping Obama win? Especially so in a close election. Do you think there are thousands of Democrats voting for Hillary?

  • MarsBarsTru7

    Your question brings me back to the Groucho Marx question – “Have you stopped beating your wife yet?”. It’s a dishonest question. It presents a limited reality that does not exist.

    My choice to vote for someone I believe in doesn’t help anyone. A person’s vote isn’t about helping anyone. A vote is the choice of an individual selecting the person they feel is most qualified and most represents them; their values, their principles, their views on government and politics. If you allow your vision to be narrowed to the point where you’ve reinterpreted that choice as having to support the selection of others, of one of two groups, that’s on you, not me.

    Neither of these choices (Romney/Obama) represent me. I will choose someone else. I don’t care what Democrats or Republicans or Libertarians or anyone else is choosing when considering my own vote. All I care about is what the people running for office have to say for themselves, what they represent, what their reputation is, what the nature of their character is, and most of all, what policies they’re going to be promoting. My responsibility as a voter is to select the one that meets MY standards. Not yours and not anyone else’s.

    I could just as easily posit that it is *you* who is helping Obama because you don’t support the candidate of *my* choice. Do you accept that responsibility? Is it your fault if Obama is elected? No, certainly not. It’s a fallacy to suggest so, and so it is conversely when you suggest so to me.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    What I find interesting is that you believe it is very important for me to choose between Romney and Obama and yet you have not asked me why I’m not voting for Romney.

    Understand that I’m not liberal or Democrat. As I’ve explained elsewhere
    I’ve never voted for a Democrat in my life and I will not for the rest
    of my life. My dislike for Romney is such from a
    conservative-libertarian perspective.

    Fair warning: You may regret pursuing this if you keep attempting to convince me. I do not suggest that I will be rude or that I’m threatening you in any way. I’m simply saying this because I’m very prepared to explain my reasoning in detail, with a lot of information that validates my position. You may not be prepared to go so in depth. I would say it’s highly likely based on previous experiences with others. Still, I don’t know you and it is your choice.

    98 people vote for Romney and 99 for Obama, you and I and one liberal Obama guy are left. He votes for Obama, I vote for Romney, and you are left……..
    You didn’t read the article I asked…How about this one question:If the man sitting in the Oval Office does not matter, how has obama
    managed to increase the national debt in just three years by over 50%?

    “If the man sitting in the Oval Office does not matter, how has obama managed to increase the national debt in just three years by over 50%?” – This is another dishonest question. Did I say that the man who gets voted in as President doesn’t matter? No. But you’re projecting that scenario on me as if I did. This does not validate your position.

    Trust me Bucko, it matters to me. It matters to me very much, which is why who I choose with my vote is so important to me.

    And know this, if 99 people vote for Obama and 99 people vote for Romney and I’m all that’s left and I vote for someone else that represents the Constitution and individual liberty and God-given rights better than Obama and Romney, then I’m the one correct person in the room.

  • new2la

    So, am I to surmise you are voting for Barack? Because not voting gives him an advantage. For all the Libertarians that don’t plan on voting please know, It will be a vote for the chief.
    In all the tests I have taken to see what party I most follow, I have come out as Libertarian, but I know when to side against the person I definitely do not want as president and that my friend is, Barack Hussein Obama.

  • greywolfrs

    He never said he was not voting, he simply said he isn’t voting for Obamao or Romney. A vote is for the person it is cast, no one else.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    *loud whisper* Shhh! It’s a secret Grey! I didn’t just type out as much explaining this to other commenters for you to go and leak it to everyone.

    Just don’t tell anyone else and don’t tell anyone that my full explanation is hidden above this!

    You are nothing if not a gentle person……believe me when I tell you I do understand. What I have is faith; Faith in Our God, that for what ever His reasons are, has put this man against a person we should fear. I don’t see Mr. Romney as the person you have painted. Perhaps you are right. I hope not. We know where Obama will take us and I pray that at some point, you will acknowledge you were wrong….perhaps.

  • MarsBarsTru7

    First, thank you.
    Next, know that despite what I firmly believe about Romney, I still pray that he is as good as many of you believe him to be.

    And believe me, I will be happy to be wrong about him, and I’ll be the first to admit it if/when that becomes apparent.

    When Romney was addressing Obama about one policy failure after another and looking straight at him – and Obama averting his eyes – it reminded me for all the world of the dressings-down I gave my teenage sons when they knew they had done something wrong and they were busted. I can’t think of any other better way to put it – Romney acted like an adult, and Obama acted like (with apologies to the Kinks) a schoolboy in disgrace.

    After the beat down on B.O. Wed. night, the Dems are going to get very ugly in their ads against Romney, I fear. There is only a month before the elections and they have to try as hard as possible to damage Romney (and Ryan) in any way they can. Truth be damned! And about B.O. not wanting to be Prez anymore— Didn’t Mrs. O. make a complaint several months ago about not wanting to be in the WH anymore? Or words to that effect. Could B.O. be tired of all the pretending? I know he really likes the perks but may be, equally, disliking the demands.

    He’ll still have some of the perks even if he loses. He’ll have Secret Service, he can still be addressed as ”Mr. President,” he will still have his adoring fans (and can go on as many TV shows as he desires!), and he will get a good amount of money every month. If he doesn’t want to endure the cold Chicago winters, I’m sure those in La La land will be happy to have him and family and welcome him with open arms.

    He was comfortable and cocky the next day when his rebuttal was written for him and he didn’t have to deal with Romney in person. Wake up undecided and help put a responsible adult in the White house instead of a petulant child.

  • Shane

    Ann is right again. Romney looked good, while Obama looked tired. Ann’s book “Mugged” exposes the way liberals have been manipulating minorities in America to become loyal to the Dimocrat party, although they are not much better off than before they became enslaved to the Dimocrats.

    The worst optics I’ve seen in a while came the day after the debate, when a juiced-up Obama was at a campaign rally throwing insults at Romney in front of an adoring crowd. I think most impartial observers would see a guy who talks tough when there’s no one around to challenge him, but who loses all his mojo when he actually has to face a real competitor.

    I was waiting for Romney to appear across the field and say “Why don’t you come over here and say that to my face!”

    What is interesting, is when talking about Obama, if people don’t think he has both stages set, man are you mislead. Win, the stage is set, lose,his stage is set. You don’t have an agenda and not look at both sides of winning or losing. With Romney, America knows what they are getting, he is for the upper class & everyone knows this. He did not say anything during the debate that changes my mind that he will help this country. Obama knows win or lose what he needs to do going forward, he was bored at the debate because both stages are set. This country is to divided, this was important to Obama, divide the country. Win, he moves forward with power, lose, moves forward with current power. Losing brings his losing stage to the front, winning pushes his agenda back over the next year or so.
