Ann Coulter Works The Room At Yale... And A Look Back At Her Other Controversial Speeches

First Posted: 10/12/11 12:13 PM ET   Updated: 12/12/11 05:12 AM ET

Conservative pundit (and Cornell grad) Ann Coulter visited Yale University Tuesday and didn't mince words in bashing the president.

According to the Yale Daily News, Coulter provided her bountiful young audience with plenty of quips related to Obama and the Occupy Wall Street protests:

"Liberals love mobs because they see them as their path to power," she said, explaining her belief that the Occupy Wall Street protests were only the latest incarnation of a liberal political machine designed to inflame an ill-informed populace.

Mobs, however, were not Coulter's only target. Other critiques, each delivered with a joke on the side, targeted the Obama's economic, foreign and health care policies. One of Coulter's more pointed remarks targeted his attempts to raise taxes as the opposite of President Ronald Reagan's approach.

"It's like [Obama] took everything Reagan did right and did exactly the opposite," she said.


Coulter is no stranger to controversy on campus (who could forget the time she was warned to watch her mouth by Canada!). See some of her more talked-about college visits below.

Long before she began her lecture -- entitled “Ann Coulter and the 2008 Election: Why Liberals are Wrong about Everything” –- TCNJ students were distributing armbands and pamphlets in an attempt to combat Coulter’s presence on campus. One of Coulter’s more provocative moments came when she referred to white liberals as “a bunch of (p---ies) and declared that they’d prolonged slavery in America. TCNJ students, once referred to as some of the nation’s most apathetic by “The Princeton Review,” got riled up. Thirty minutes into her talk, about 40 students stood up, many wearing white armbands with Coulter’s name on them and an X drawn through it. They walked out roaring, “Gay, straight, black, white! Same struggle, same fight!” Despite the on-campus anger, Coulter still made $24,000 for her 40-minute long speech.
