Conservative columnist and author of “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican,” Ann Coulter argued that the 2014 election is too important for Republicans to sit out on Monday’s “Hannity” on the Fox News Channel.
“If we have the Senate, too, with Mitch McConnell and John Boehner passing repeals of Obamacare and terrific things, the media won’t be able to keep maintaining it’s Republicans who are doing nothing but passing birth control laws. They will have to report on the bills that get passed out of both houses of Congress and our do-nothing president keeps vetoing. That will set up a presidential candidate very well for 2016. This is a very important election, please, Republicans” she stated.
She added, “we have Republicans, some Republicans, some base running off and voting for the Libertarian or the third-party candidate. No, you cannot do it this time, Republicans. A lot of Republicans are running this year, I would like to, just, never hear from again. I detest. Yet, you have to vote for them because Republicans do not just need to take a majority, they need to take 53 seats this year because we are very likely to lose two or three seats two years from now. If we are ever going to repeal Obamacare, we have got to get 53-54 seats and then elect a Republican in 2016.”
Coulter did say that dissatisfaction with the GOP is due to the failures of Republican leadership, arguing “we’re taking in all of Central America, and the Republican Party won’t mention that because their donors want the cheap labor? And then you wonder why the base runs off and does crazy things like primary Pat Roberts (R-KS) and Thad Cochran (R-MS) who not only voted against amnesty, they voted against Reagan’s amnesty. Why did they have primary challenges? Because our leadership has let us down. And so you have the base angry and just striking out at anyone. I mean, there are Republicans, by the way, who deserved a primary challenge, but not now.”
