Mark Levin responds to Ann Coulter’s support for Chris Christie for President. Christie has stated many times that he is not running for President. Ann Coulter still widely supports him. Mark Levin responded to Coulter, and I have to agree with him. This isn’t Christie’s time.
When will my dear friend Ann start to address the substantive problems with Christie’s actual positions or are we going to get another year of “only Christie can win” fortune cookie logic?
Does she support his positions on: gun control, amnesty, the appointment of an Islamist to the bench, the green agenda, his campaigning for Mike Castle, his MIA on health care litigation, etc.; and how does she think this would energize the base outside of New Jersey? Has the Tea Party even in NJ been pushing for his candidacy? No. Yes, he’s solid in his YouTube battles with teachers and his efforts to try and address NJ’s budget problems, the outcome of which have yet to be determined. But the federal government is a vast enterprise that requires a solid conservative at the helm, especially now.
Oh, and Ann, I backed Fred Thompson. He lost. I reluctantly wound up voting for McCain like millions of my fellow conservatives. Who did you back? Who did you vote for? And what did you do to stop McCain before his nomination? My listeners know we opposed him every step of the way until the end of October 2008. I don’t run the GOP and I don’t decide who runs in primaries. I can encourage candidates to run, etc., but my powers are limited. If it were up to me, Marco Rubio would get into the presidential race. I’m not sure why Ann is dissing him for Christie. Rubio is solidly conservative. Read the rest here
Conservatives4Palin on the issue
I generally like Ann Coulter and agree with many of her views. However, as smart a lawyer and writer as Ann is, I am puzzled as to why she thinks Christie is the best candidate to defeat Obama in 2012. He likely would not even stand a chance at winning the nomination when Republican primary voters realize many of the stances he has taken that are outlined in LevinÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s piece above. Finally, this is all a moot point anyway because Christie has said as recently as this afternoon that he is not running in 2012.
I agree with Levin on this one. I enjoy watching Christie take on the corrupt unions as much as anyone, but I don’t understand why Coulter is willing to give him a pass on his questionable policy positions.
