Controversial right-wing firebrand Ann Coulter said the issue of race would be a factor if President Barack Obama were to defeat Republican challenger Mitt Romney and win a second term in the White House.
“More now than ever before,” Coulter replied during a Monday visit to “The Sean Hannity Show” on Fox News. “Americans are afraid to say they are voting against Obama because they’ll be accused of racism. That is the point by the entire NFM [Non-Fox Media].”
“The polls over-predict a victory for a black candidate,” she asserted.
Coulter dismissed the most recent polls that suggested the tight presidential race may have been breaking in the president’s favor, saying that they “over-predict” victory for a black candidate.
Hannity and Coulter noted that the Obama campaign “is already making excuses” — with Coulter going on to note that Obama, aside from “wrecking the economy with the stimulus, wrecking the country with Obamacare,” has done nothing but campaign.
Coulter further dismissed the notion that Republicans have to move to the center when they enter general election campaigning. It’s not a position change, she said. Arguing that Democrats’ efforts to “demonize” Romney have failed, she added, “The more people see of Mitt Romney, the more they like him.”
After a discussion of which states, and specifically which battleground states, Romney could win on Election Day, Coulter noted that the polls essentially show the key states to be a tie before introducing race as a possible factor.
“You got the Bradley effect, when you have a white man running against a black man,” Coulter said, referring to the 1992 California gubernatorial race in which African-American former Los Angeles mayor Tom Bradley lost despite all polls showing him with a substantial lead over his white Republican opponent.
Colter’s venomous, hate-filled banter knows no boundaries.
In an April 2, 2008 column, she once called the memoir of then-presidential-candidate Barack Obama, “Dreams From My Father” as a “dimestore Mein Kamp.”
“He says the reason black people keep to themselves is that it’s ‘easier than spending all your time mad or trying to guess whatever it was that white folks were thinking about you,’
“Here’s a little inside scoop about white people: We’re not thinking about you. Especially WASPs. We think everybody is inferior, and we are perfectly charming about it.”
