Romney Backer: “Maybe It’s Time” For The Right To “Go After The Obama Children”
Appearing Wednesday night on Fox News’ Hannity, conservative columnist, author, and Mitt Romney backer Ann Coulter said that “maybe it’s time” for conservatives to “go after the Obama children.” Watch:
Coulter was in the middle of claiming that liberals have rhetorically attacked the children of conservatives, but the right has refused to do so. This is false.
In fact, there are several incidents of conservatives going after the children of Democratic presidents.
* In 2010, conservative radio show host Glenn Beck mocked Malia Obama, doing a crude imitation of her voice, then questioning the then 11 year old child’s intelligence.
* A few days later, Rush Limbaugh made the same attack on Malia Obama, using a falsetto impression of her voice.
* In 1992, Rush Limbaugh illustrated a story about Chelsea Clinton with a picture of a dog on his short-lived television show.
* In 2001, conservative writer John Derbyshire wrote a column in National Review titled “I Hate Chelsea Clinton.” In the column, Derbyshire wrote, “Who, in current public life, has been ‘thrown up to us’ so much as Chelsea?” He went on: “Chelsea had now reached the age at which it is acceptable to pass public comment on a woman’s physical appearance.” He concluded with: “Chelsea is a Clinton. She bears the taint; and though not prosecutable in law, in custom and nature the taint cannot be ignored.”
For the last few months, Coulter has made numerous media appearances in favor of Romney, insisting that he was the most viable conservative among Republican presidential candidates.
