Romney Backer: “Maybe It’s Time” For The Right To “Go After The Obama Children”

If this starts happening, you'll know where it came from. Ugh.

Romney Backer: “Maybe It’s Time” For The Right To “Go After The Obama Children”

Posted 22 March 2012 | 12:49 am EST


Appearing Wednesday night on Fox News’ Hannity, conservative columnist, author, and Mitt Romney backer Ann Coulter said that “maybe it’s time” for conservatives to “go after the Obama children.”

Watch @ link~

Coulter was in the middle of claiming that liberals have rhetorically attacked the children of conservatives, but the right has refused to do so. This is false.

In fact, there are several incidents of conservatives going after the children of Democratic presidents.

* In 2010, conservative radio show host Glenn Beck mocked Malia Obama, doing a crude imitation of her voice, then questioning the then 11 year old child’s intelligence.

* A few days later, Rush Limbaugh made the same attack on Malia Obama, using a falsetto impression of her voice.

* In 1992, Rush Limbaugh illustrated a story about Chelsea Clinton with a picture of a dog on his short-lived television show.

* In 2001, conservative writer John Derbyshire wrote a column in National Review titled “I Hate Chelsea Clinton.” In the column, Derbyshire wrote, “Who, in current public life, has been ‘thrown up to us’ so much as Chelsea?” He went on: “Chelsea had now reached the age at which it is acceptable to pass public comment on a woman’s physical appearance.” He concluded with: “Chelsea is a Clinton. She bears the taint; and though not prosecutable in law, in custom and nature the taint cannot be ignored.”


For the last few months, Coulter has made numerous media appearances in favor of Romney, insisting that he was the most viable conservative among Republican presidential candidates.

2. Decency

If there is any decency left in this country their idea will backfire on them. They are trying to make Obama angry so they can use the "angry" black guy argument.

There is justifiable anger. And people of conscience should savage these people on the social networks if they engage in such practices. There is every right to defend the interests of these children.

What could possibly go wrong?

Edited for the dignity and grace of the Bush twins.

They shouldn't be able to say stuff like this about minors of any candidate.

6. That will be a major mistake. People do not like to see children being attacked .But it shows

how unsuitable they are for public office. They simply cannot talk about the issues because their ideas are so unpopular with the American people.

Shameful bullies of children.

8. It won't work.

My daughter went to one of her events/speeches at Iowa State. Coulter had beefy bodyguards up the ying yang. My kid was careful about what she wore, and left all her political paraphernalia at home. She was still surprised that they let her in.

Funny thing: for being such a huge school, the event was poorly attended. There were only about one hundred people there.

I am not going to alert on you, but it is a bad idea to advocate violence toward the emaciated harpy. Let's not be like them.

12. Go after the Children.

OK, We'll counter this with the fact that WE laid off of bristol palin's pregnancy in 2008 and we laid off of george w moron's 2 little twin drunks.

I forgot though, if a republican does it, it's OK. Yuck!

PEACE!

13. What is there to "go after" them for?

Never mind that it is obviously completely wrong to go after the minor children of famous people, I'm genuinely at a loss as to what Coulter thinks there is to "go after" them for. For real, does anyone know?


Or are they literally going to go after Sasha and Malia for being Black while living in the White House?

16. They ARE giant bullies

I remember back in 2007(?), the right-wing attacked a family when the Democrats used them as examples to demonstrate the need for expanded SCHIP coverage- that they passed and George W. Bush ultimately vetoed. To them, pretty much anybody is "fair game" for political attacks, whether they're children (of prominent politicians), law students, COVERT CIA AGENTS, etc.

I'm honestly baffled by what Coulter thinks her side could gain by going after Sasha and Malia. Coulter is horrible, obviously, but I didn't think she was this stupid.

26. they are in private school, for one. Malia was on a trip from her private school just recently,

which the Obama's acknowledged. It was during her private school's vacation time. I guess that's bad.

I'm sure that they hate that those girls are in White House while being black. I think that is a rationale, too. But they are trying very hard to be careful to not blow their cover here....

they won't succeed...

32. yeah...that'll work...

First, I'm guessing the parents chose the school originally, not the kids. Kids don't tend to have the final say in much.

Second, I'm guessing that the majority of people would understand that the President's kids are going to have an easier time having the necessary security at a private school.

19. Recently I ran into Coulter at an airport, found myself within two feet...

...of her three separate times and it took everything I had not to tell her what a creepy piece of shit she is - but I didn't want to sink to her disgusting level.

21. I Had The Chance to

do bodily harm to Karl Rove at the airport - he was being picked up and was in the car in front of me. One little slip of my foot would have squished the turd blossom as he put his bags in the trunk of the car. Alas, had his cute son with him, so I decided to go call him a war criminal, but then they sped off just as I got out of my car.

I regret not squishing him.

Attacking the Obama kids barely flies in Freeperville--among people who have a heart and a brain, it will be seen as completely reprehensible.

23. God have mercy on this country if the hate on the right leads to harming one single

hair on the heads of Malia, Sasha or Michelle.

We will see a race war the likes of which this country have never experienced. This is what these hateful, racist assholes want, too! That's what they want!!!

Conservatives are slime, they do everything in their power to elevate the rich white heterosexual male, and the rest of us be dammed. They only want the little people when it's time to vote for them, and so many poor deluded fools buy into their bull shit.

28. I don't understand. I thought Ann Coulter loves children.

After all, she sinks her fangs into the kids she has chained in her basement a couple of times a week.

It's how she retains her glowing healthy countenance.

31. The guy who went after the Bushlets died of anthrax.

Robert Stevens was a photo editor for the Sun, the fellow who published the picture of Jenna Bush falling down drunk.

He was the first person to die in the anthrax attacks.

So, Ann Coulter, are you sure you want to fuck with the President's kids?
