Ann Coulter: "If Our Only Choice Is Gridlock Vs. Socialism, I'll Take Gridlock"

(Real Clear Politics) - Ann Coulter, author of "Demonic": "[Obama] has made a hash of things. The unemployment rate is through the roof. There is no hope in sight. Well, there is hope in sight. He's saying 'I didn't promise change overnight.' I'll promise you change overnight. It's going to come overnight on November 6, 2012. That's the hope, overnight."

Bill O'Reilly, host of "O'Reilly Factor" on FNC: "That's your hope. Sixteen months of a power vacuum. Look, you have to look at it this way: The President is not going to get anything done, would you agree with that?"

Ann Coulter: "I think your analysis is incorrect. When you say the Republicans aren't -- want to prevent him from being reelected and that's why they're going to block him from anything he wants to do … No, they're going to block him from what he wants to do because they disagree with him. Obama and the Democrats are for big government.

"No, there's a difference. It is a very important difference. And the reason why he is losing his power, the theme of this segment, is because he has made hash of the economy. Why has he made hash of the economy? Because he has crazy ideas about increasing the size of government whereas Republicans want to increase the size of the private sector."
