Conservative commentator Ann Coulter says if Mitt Romney is the GOP nominee for president in 2012, President Barack Obama would probably win re-election. Coulter also told CNN’s Piers Morgan on Tuesday that she finds New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie “pretty stunning.”
“If you don’t run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and we’ll lose,” Coulter said, but added “I now think the economy is such a disaster and Obama has such a glass jaw that we might even win with Romney. And Romney isn’t a disaster . . . I like him.
“The problem with Romney that a lot of people have, people like me, conservatives, is Romneycare,” she said. “I still think he’ll probably be the nominee unless Christie jumps in. Christie’s pretty stunning.”
Coulter, whose new book “Demonic: How the Liberal Mob is Endangering America” came out Tuesday, explained “it’s about liberal mob psychology, how they gin up their base, and how they argue — all these things that used to confuse me about liberals. And, by the way, I consider myself something of an expert on liberals.”
“There were some things even I could not understand. For example, so many of them seem to do well on their SATs, because they’ve gone to places like Harvard and Yale — and yet they seem so stupid,” she said. “And that’s explained as mob psychology. And in a mob, a man of even great education and intelligence will suddenly become part of the mob.”
Coulter said, for example, Democrats at first “appealed to the segregationists, they appealed to the KKK. They were the party of [former Georgia Gov. Lester] Maddox and [former Arkansas Gov.] Orville Faubus, standing in the schoolhouse door.”
“Then as soon as blacks start voting in large enough numbers to influence their electoral prospects, suddenly, they switch and they’re just going to use blacks as a mob, and gays as a mob, and women as a mob, and illegal aliens as a mob,” she said. “And as long as they get power, they don’t care what happens.”
Coulter then turned her liberal mob thesis to the current debate over Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.
“When these programs were started, they were started as Ponzi schemes. Their authors knew this can’t last, but we’ll be dead and gone by the time the bill comes due,” she said. “And you can’t get Democrats to focus on what we’re going to do with these programs going bankrupt. They just want to keep demagoguing, demagoguing, demagoguing.”
