Coulter responds to controversial tweet, debate performances on radio

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Ann Coulter is getting a lot of attention for a controversial tweet she sent out after last night’s debate.

Glenn joked with Ann, saying, “I don’t know why you would call Bob Schieffer a retard.”

“Well, I think a lot of people wanted the more ‘Newt Gingrich, in your face’ approach,” Ann responded, adding, “I think a lot of us were surprised that Romney didn’t go after Obama on Libya. That he said he approved of Mubarak being deposed. He did not coming back and really hit Obama hard with some of the completely insane things he said.”

“I realized at the end of the debate only one man on that stage looked presidential,” Ann added noting many of the tacky, snarky comments President Obama made were beneath the office of the President of the United States.

“I think if you were watching the two of them, and you had no idea, and you would say this one is President and this one is some street fighter,” Glenn responded.

“Instead of rising up [to the office of the presidency], he lowered everything around him,” Glenn added.

Ann found President Obama’s performance to feel desperate and flailing. And surprisingly, found it smart of Romney not to hit hard on the cover up in Libya, because: 1. It’s what Obama was expecting and 2. After last week’s debate, the media had been covering the incident quite well.

She pointed out that whenever Obama was off the topic of Libya, he was discussing school teachers, killing Osama bin Laden, pandering to women, and Russia — who he has already made deals to work with after the election.

“There was a lot of embarrassing pander to women,” Ann told Glenn.

“What is the approach here?” Stu asked. “Is there some sort of Obama internal research that shows that 93% of voters are teachers who want free contraception?” What’s the approach here? They constantly bring it back to the same topics.”

Ann believes they’re trying to rally the base, which at this point in the game means his campaign is in trouble. At this point both candidates should be trying to win over the last few undecided voters who will ultimately determine the results of this election, which is exactly what Mitt Romney appeared to be trying to do last night.

“If you’re in those swing states and you’re just beginning to pay attention, and you’re getting your facts about who Mitt Romney is from the President, he looked kind and gentle. He does not look like George W. Bush. He looked in control of himself. And he didn’t look snarky,” Glenn said. “I think if you’re a woman in a swing state you don’t want to go to war — nobody wants to go to war, especially women — you don’t want to go to war. He now has people saying, ‘I kind of like that guy. He was okay. He seemed to have the facts and he doesn’t want to go to a war, and the President he’ll never say this out loud.’ Again, the President gave me the facts on Mitt Romney, and he was wrong there.”

“That’s right,” Ann agreed. “Women, curiously since 9/11, foreign policy has been a much bigger issue for women than for men. It is an important issue. Women don’t want to go to war, and Romney could not have been clearer.”

“I definitely think that Romney is going to win. The only reason I shy away from a landslide is like Yogi Berra said it’s hard predicting especially the future,” she told Glenn.

“Apparently immediately after the debate Obama’s chances in Ohio went down substantially on Intrade,” she added.

Coulter also took issues with Obama’s lie that Romney would have let G.M. collapse without government support.

“Of course Romney with his background, his father being the head of an auto company, did not say that the government should not provide support. It would have been a way to more honestly wind down a company, and eliminate some debts and honor other debts, and not just honoring the ones of your union buddies,” she said.

    Romney will win, and I hope by a landslide, or at least a decisive margine that will withstand the inevitable SCOTUS challenges. We also need to be ready for the prospect of riots and full scale violence from the followers of Obama, unionists and a golden opportunity for terrorists to strike.

    Obama will not leave office easily, and with nothing to lose, he shall wreck as much havoc and vengeance as he can.

    Ann is just one of the talking heads guarding the inhabitants of Bullsh*t Mountain from rejoining the world of the sane.  Fox News is a propaganda machine which dumbs down America by the day through disinformation and their slanted agendas.  See their anchors spewing forth feces from their mouths in my visual homage to the network on my artist’s blog at   http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2012/10/the-fox-news-scylla-guardian-of-bullsht.html

    Romney WON.  He did everything right last night.  It’s good that he didn’t get into another Mud Fight with the Bozo over Libya even though he will continue to take this “president” to task over the MURDER of our 4 Americans in Benghazi.

    Captain Clueless came off as snarky, condescending, arrogant and petulant.  He also lied several times and was “corrected” by various Fact Checkers.

    Mitt came off as our 45th President and looked more credible than the Doofus in the White House.  He was more optimistic and confident and his final statement was incredibly well done.
    He LOOKED like a President.  Obama LOOKED like a mad man, with his unblinking Sharks eyes glowering at the Governor, for 90 minutes.  What a jerk!

    I am looking forward to inviting the new President into my Living Room any time he wants to visit, via Television.  What a drastic improvement over what we have had for the past four long, miserable years!

    Go Mitt and Paul!  On to victory and the White House.

    Obama played the part of a foreign policy and relative military expert. However, let us not forget it was a short time ago when he referred to one of our most revered military institutions, a virtual national treasure as “the Marine “CORPSE.”

    The reason that Obama looked quite hopeless was that Romney threw him and the moderator off their prepared agenda. Just recall how many times Obama stuttered and mixed up the words in his responses. Without a teleprompter or prepared speeches, Obama is just another idiot, and that’s putting it mildly.

    And Ann Coulter doesn’t give Conservatives a bad name.  She is the only one who can put Liberals like Chris Matthews, Bill Maher, David Letterman, Michael Moore, Obama, Biden, Reid, Axelrod, Pelosi, Stephanie Cutter, and Debbie Wassersman-Shultz in their place AND KEEP THEM THERE!

    It seems to me, when Romney was talking about the apology tour of middle eastern countries but did not visit Israel and continued and they noticed that, Romney meant the muslim countries noticing that, not Israel.  I’m sure Israel was very much aware that bho didn’t visit their country.

    No, the real shame is your President sat by and did nothing while four Americans were killed on his watch. Four Americans he sent into a situation with no security, and no plan to protect them even after months of assaults on the very compound he ordered them to.

    He put them in harm’s way and executed them – just as sure as if he had pulled the trigger himself. He’s tried to cover it up for weeks, and it isn’t going away, but he will be. This will be the trial of a President – one whose crimes are so egregious that it is going to end him and the party that backed him.

  • Todd Dunn

    STRLK,

    Curious to know your opinion of Chris Mathews of NBC referring to Romney supporters as Racists….that the only reason they are voting for Romney is because Obama is black.  Seems to me that comment is as heavily offensive as Ann using the word retard.  Thoughts? 

  • Todd Dunn

    FineTapestry….do you unite with Chris Mathews in referring to people who vote for Romney as Racist? Is he vile for saying that people are racists who vote the way they want?  Is he vile for saying someone doesn’t have a constitutional right to challenge the president…I don’t think Obama is a King…. If there ever has been a vile term..one which Chris spread must more broadly that Ann’s targeted criticism of Obama.  Do you think Chris’s comments are appropriate?  

    Also…are you not also trying to unite your party?  What I don’t quite understand is why you refer to people as morons…..morons because we don’t believe as you do? Morons because we don’t believe in QE3?  Morons because we don’t believe that deeper debt is the answer?  Morons because we believe that being close allies with Israel is a good thing for our country? Morons because we believe that a lower tax rate infuses more money into the economy?  Morons because we know that a dollar in the hands of government turns over fewer times that a gov’t put in the hands of entrepreneurs? Taxes, without representation I might add, is a spark that caused this great country to form and now somehow we are morons because we believe as the founding fathers that a higher tax burden isn’t good nor right?  

  • Todd Dunn

    Maybe then Chris Mathews should be fired for calling people racists.  

  • Todd Dunn

    If you take a look at MSNBC and other media outlets you will clearly see that those outlets dumb down America. Are they talking about the facts….16 trillion in debt, 23 million out of work…the true impact of raising taxes…NO….they aren’t.  Are they talking about the trillions of interest free loans given to Goldman Sachs and others who are so leveraged with derivatives now that it only makes the fiscal cliff steeper? So do you not want a conservative population to speak its views?  Odd thing to me is having “one voice” doesn’t seem to be the fundamental design of this country.  Frankly, that seems rather socialistic to me….that smells of Russia, Venezuela, and other countries who don’t want anyone to question those in leadership.  I just wonder if you value other views…it appears that you don’t.  

  • Todd Dunn

    What is Chris Mathews?  A guy who calls people racists?  A guy who was clearly upset after the first debate……is he an idiot? Is it idiotic to add 6 trillion dollars in debt in four years when Obama said Bush as unpatriotic to add 4 trillion in eight years?  Is it Idiotic to continue the quantitative easing approach  that makes no sense…to fundamentally buy our own debt that are mortgaged back securities?  Really?  What if you borrowed money just to pay the interest on your loans?  Is that idiotic?  

  • Anonymous

    Nope. I don’t watch nor like Chris Mathews. He’s as propagandist as Beck or Coulter. Mathews, I think you’d agree, is a moron for being an agent of blatant propaganda. Now, our party is united behind Obama. Because, unlike you, we do believe he wants us (the US) to be close ally of Israel, because we believe his plan for the economy is not only efficient but also ethical, because we agree with him that government is of the people and it should work for it (as opposed to conservative thinking: government is always bad when liberals are in charge), and because we believe paying a FAIR tax is a privilege that benefits us all. Glenn defeats himself, because he’s a propagandist, and they always end up contradicting themselves (just as Mathews). And for that, in my book, his a moron. Now, Coulter, for calling people “retard”, just as all conservatives who call us “libtards”, I believe will fall on the wrong side of history. You have the right to disagree, of course, and that doesn’t make you a moron. Being a blatant critique-less propagandist does.

    Dear Ann Coulter,Come on Ms. Coulter, you aren’t dumb and you aren’t shallow.  So why are you continually using a word like the R-word as an insult?I’m a 30 year old man with Down syndrome who has struggled with the public’s perception that an intellectual disability means that I am dumb and shallow.  I am not either of those things, but I do process information more slowly than the rest of you.  In fact it has taken me all day to figure out how to respond to your use of the R-word last night.I thought first of asking whether you meant to describe the President as someone who was bullied as a child by people like you, but rose above it to find a way to succeed in life as many of my fellow Special Olympians have.Then I wondered if you meant to describe him as someone who has to struggle to be thoughtful about everything he says, as everyone else races from one snarkey sound bite to the next.Finally, I wondered if you meant to degrade him as someone who is likely to receive bad health care, live in low grade housing with very little income and still manages to see life as a wonderful gift.Because, Ms. Coulter, that is who we are – and much, much more.After I saw your tweet, I realized you just wanted to belittle the President by linking him to people like me.  You assumed that people would understand and accept that being linked to someone like me is an insult and you assumed you could get away with it and still appear on TV.I have to wonder if you considered other hateful words but recoiled from the backlash.Well, Ms. Coulter, you, and society, need to learn that being compared to people like me should be considered a badge of honor.No one overcomes more than we do and still loves life so much.Come join us someday at Special Olympics.  See if you can walk away with your heart unchanged.A friend you haven’t made yet,John Franklin StephensGlobal MessengerSpecial Olympics Virginia

    Fair response and respectful.  My concern about your FAIR tax comment is that the top earners…even under Romney’s plan will still pay 60% of all taxes paid by the people.  Correct, I do not see the evidence of Obama truly wanting to be an ally of Israel.  I have heard the  words but haven’t seen the evidence.  I am aware that other sitting presidents didn’t visit Israel so I am not as concerned over that one.  Well, I am a conservative that doesn’t think that government involvement is always bad. I am a conservative that happens to be very concerned about the lack of a budget and our growing deficit.  We do not lack a bipartisan agreement that our debt is quickly approaching a fiscal cliff.  I do not believe QE3 is an efficient way to restore the country’s fiscal health.  There is so much danger to the debt that isn’t being accurately reflected. I am sure there is arguments on both sides and yet there hasn’t been a time in history when our debt accumulation and spending outraced GDP growth so badly.  I do respect that your party is united behind who it believes is the best choice.  What a great country we live in that allows such a debate and choice!  Take care
