Ann Coulter thinks the Republican Party is in a much better position with the current federal government shutdown than in 1995, when it was shut down for a cumulative total of 28 days.
In an appearance on Fox New Channel’s “Hannity” Thursday night, Coulter — author of the forthcoming book “Never Trust a Liberal over 3 — Especially a Republican” — blasted the Obama administration for using the shutdown to maximize a political advantage.
“[T]hey are trying to shut down privately-run areas,” Coulter said. “All of these privately run park areas that have not only never been shut down before, but take no federal money — they pay money. They pay rent to the Treasury and they’re not losing money. They’re not furloughed government workers. We’re going to be paid. This is absolutely 100 percent political. It’s like when Obama said, no White House tours for the sequester and then instantly uses Air Force One to fly his dog up to Martha’s Vineyard. Normally I don’t comment on things like that. There is enough other things to complain about … he’s doing this to punish people so that he can blame Republicans when it’s 100 percent the Democrats.”
