Ann Coulter: Media 'Will Lie About the Economy' To Get Obama Reelected
By Noel Sheppard | October 15, 2011Just how far are the media willing to go to get Barack Obama reelected?
As conservative author Ann Coulter told Fox News's Sean Hannity Friday evening, "He will have the entire mainstream media bucking for him and they will lie about the economy. 'Oh, it's a turnaround, don't stop him now'" (video follows with transcript and commentary).
ANN COULTER: I mean, Wall Street gave its biggest donation in world history to Obama. Why don't they protesting Obama? They don't know what they're protesting. They're brainless. They're brainwashed and yes, there is always the possibility of violence with the mob.
SEAN HANNITY, HOST: All right. Did you ever give Chris Christie his inhaler back?
COULTER: I did because I'm now looking at Romney-Cain.
HANNITY: Wait a minute. Excuse me. His breathalyzer back.
COULTER: That was for non-regular Hannity viewers, they referenced to a mistake made by Obama.
COULTER: And I want you to leave Obama alone, give the poor guy a break. He's still in grief over the cancellation of the first two weeks of the NBA season. Just back off.
HANNITY: I'm sorry if I'm going after the president. Well, it's getting cold, he can't play golf so he must be really upset. All right. But here's what I want to ask you, very simple. Now, who do you support?
COULTER: Romney-Cain, 2012.
HANNITY: OK. Romney-Cain, not Cain-Romney?
COULTER: Only because Cain has never held elective office before. And I'd really want to defeat Obama. And I think it's very dangerous around someone who's never held elective office. But I must say, you and I are just saying before we went on, every one of these candidates, even the nut candidates, are better than John McCain. Forget about how much better they are than Obama, the current occupant of the White House. So, I'd be happy with any of them. I think Romney has been magnificent in these debates. You have to go with what you have.
HANNITY: As bad as Obama's numbers are, can he make a comeback? In other words, could Republicans get overconfident and say, oh, unemployment is nine percent, he's in the 30s in terms of his popularity, 50 million Americans in poverty.
COULTER: To some extent. Yes. And you have to remember that he will have the entire mainstream media bucking for him and they will lie about the economy. "Oh, it's a turnaround, don't stop him now." But he doesn't understands the economy. He's done exactly the opposite of everything Ronald Reagan did and he's gotten the opposite results. I mean, you could turn around by becoming the reincarnation of Ronald Reagan. What do you think the odds of him doing that? And by the way, that one could turn the economy because once President Romney and Vice President Cain get into office, it's going to take 18 months to work through this.
COULTER: And then we are going to bring in Chris Christie as Mariano Rivera, he's getting closer, eight years out, and he will clean-up anything Romney and Cain left be find.
