If GOP Caves on Immigration, ‘No Republican Is Ever Going to Win Another National Election’

Frances Martel, MediaIte, February 11, 2012

Returning to TV the day after both she and her preferred presidential candidate took the stage at CPAC, Ann Coulter stopped by Fox & Friends this morning to discuss the recent Rick Santorum mini-surge and her conviction that Mitt Romney must be the next president. She also fended off the now-usual criticism of Romney as a moderate by pointing out his stances on immigration and why being tough with illegal immigrants was of vital importance: “if we lose on that issue, the entire country will become California and no Republican will ever win an national election.”


Host Alisyn Camerota then asked about Romney’s speech yesterday at CPAC, and wondered whether Romney’s repeated use of the word “conservative” (29 times!) in his speech was a sign that “he doth protest too much.” “The poor guy can’t win!” replied Coulter, adding that he was the most conservative on the issues most important to her, particularly immigration. “Republicans are chomping at the bit to grant illegals amnesty, not because they have some love for Hispanics, but because they have a love of big business,” she told the hosts, adding that the issue was so crucial because “if we lose on that issue, the entire country will become California and no Republican is ever going to win a national election.”
