Coulter On Romney…Again :-)

Well, we guess we know whom Ann Coulter’s voting for, but then again, so are we here at Hard Astarboard. It’s got to be Mitt Romney, though he wasn’t the first choice here — the first choice, whom I still believe would have been our best bet, was Axelrodded out of the game early on via some trumped up scandals using some really pathetic, opportunistic women.

However, now that we’re getting down to the wire (it’s obviously going to be a Romney vs Barack Hussein election), we right thinking Americans (those of us who respect and revere the Constitution and who believe the U.S.A. is worth more than third world country or former Eastern Bloc status) have to get on the same side rather than sit out the election or vote for any third party candidates — Obama must go, he must be defeated this November.

When I first arrived in America, I was in my late teens and Richard M. Nixon was in the White House. Now it’s 7 presidents later and I still haven’t seen a president with whom I’ve found even a tenth as many reasons not to be reelected as Obama; he even makes Carter look almost palatable by comparison, and that says a lot.

But back to Coulter on Romney, Ann tells a few truths here that need to be read by every conservative in the country.

The actual Republican Establishment –- political consultants, The Wall Street Journal, corporate America, former Bush advisers and television pundits — are exhorting Mitt Romney to flip-flop on his very non-Establishment position on illegal immigration.

Both as governor of Massachusetts and as a presidential candidate, Romney has supported a fence on the border, E-Verify to ensure that employees are legal and allowing state police to arrest illegal aliens. He is the rare Republican who recognizes that in-state tuition, driver’s licenses and amnesty are magnets for more illegal immigration.

These positions are totally at odds with Establishment Republicans who pander to the business lobby by supporting the cheap labor provided by illegal immigration, and then accuse Americans opposed to a slave labor class in America of racism. If this continues, America will become California and no Republican will ever be elected president again. Big business doesn’t care and Establishment Republicans are too stupid to notice.

If you’re not sure how you feel about illegal immigration, ask yourself this: “Do I have a nanny, a maid, a pool boy, a chauffeur, a cook or a business requiring lots of cheap labor that the rest of America will have to subsidize with social services to make up for the wages I’m paying?” Press “1″ to answer in English.

If the answer is “no,” illegal immigration is a bad deal for you. Cheap labor is cheap only for the employer.


Romney is one of the few Republicans to recognize that there is no need to “round up” illegal aliens (in the lingo of amnesty supporters) to get them to go home. Illegal aliens will leave the same way they arrived. They decided to walk across the border to get jobs — and welfare, apparently — and they’ll walk back across the border as soon as the jobs and welfare dry up.

Obama has a similar plan, but instead of using E-Verify to stop illegal aliens from taking American jobs, he did it by destroying the entire job market. Hmmmm, drug-war ravaged Ciudad Juarez, or Obama’s America … I’ll take Juarez! Under the booming economy President Romney is going to produce, we’re going to need a really high fence.

It didn’t take a government administrator “rounding up” foreigners and putting them on buses to get 20 million illegal aliens here, and it won’t take a government program “rounding them up” to get them home.

While Romney’s views on immigration are wildly popular with Americans, they are extremely unpopular with the Republican Establishment sucking up to business interests — Bush, Rove, McCain, Huckabee, Perry, Gingrich, Giuliani, Krauthammer, Kristol, Gillespie, etc, etc.

(Maybe it’s the Establishment that’s been calling Romney “Establishment.”)

Ann Coulter’s entire column is here.

Go, Ann!
