Mitt Romney 2016? Ann Coulter isn’t giving up hope.
In an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity Monday night, the conservative commentator reiterated her desire for a third Romney White House run while ripping to shreds the GOP’s field for 2016, excluding Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
Coulter told the Fox News host that she’s “sick of fighting for losing causes,” adding that all the candidates, pardon Walker, are “idiots.” The uber-opinionated conservative also told Hannity that she will take “a long vacation” if Walker (or Romney) does not get the GOP nomination.
“Who do you like for president?” Hannity asked Coulter initially.
“I would like Mitt Romney with Scott Walker as his vice president”
“He’s not running. Keep going,” Hannity retorted. “He won’t jump back in.”
“I think he’s going to jump back in when people realize — the only possible candidate who isn’t a joke right now is Scott Walker, and I would rather have Mitt Romney answering questions about the fed and trade with China, and you’ll see,” Coulter told the host. “Ann’s going to be right. You’ll apologize.”
“You’re going to be wrong,” Hannity told Coulter. “I will bet you any amount of money he’s not getting in.”
“We’ll see,” Coulter said.
“Is that — you’re living in the past that much?” Hannity asked.
“I think Republican primary voters will realize, oh my gosh, we were lied to by idiots who said they were speaking on our behalf. Mitt Romney not only the most articulate but the conservative candidate we ever had. I love Scott Walker, but I would really prefer for him to be Mitt Romney’s vice president for a few years.
“Alright, so you’re not going to get your way,” Hannity told Coulter. “You are going support whoever the nominee is.”
“If it’s Scott Walker,” Coulter said.
“What if it’s somebody else?” Hannity followed up.
“I’ll take a long vacation,” Coulter responded.
“You’re that rigid now?” Hannity asked in semi-astonishment.
“It’s not that I’m that rigid. I’m sick for fighting for losing causes,” Coulter said. “If it’s not Scott Walker or Mitt Romney, I think we lose and welcome President Hillary [Clinton].”
“I don’t think she’s going to win,” Hannity said. “Not this time.”
“Well, as long as we run Mitt Romney with Scott Walker.” Coulter said in finality.
