Conservatives want Andrea Saul fired, suggest replacements!/JedediahBila/status/233568917140938752

Since Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul’s ill-conceived Romneycare pimpage yesterday, many conservatives are calling on her to resign or for Romney to give her the boot:

On today's show, I call for Andrea Saul to be fired and debunk this online nonsense about who's a real conservative

— Tony Katz (@tonykatz) August 9, 2012

Andrea Saul, do the right thing for the country: quit! Romney will loose w people like u representing him.

— Love Liberty (@Tea4Freedom) August 9, 2012

Andrea Saul should resign and not force Mitt Romney to fire her. The next slip up will cost Mitt the election. Can't trust McCain staffers.

@MittRomney FIRE Andrea Saul NOW!!! #FireAndreaSaul RT and trend Please

— LenaSiberian (@LenaSiberian) August 9, 2012

Email from a friend who wants to start a Kickstarter project to buy out Andrea Saul's contract with the Romney campaign. LOL.

— Erick Erickson (@EWErickson) August 8, 2012

Twitterers offered up ideas as to who should replace Saul. Some suggestions were pretty generic:

@MittRomney Gov. Romney – Please please replace Andrea Saul with a more experienced & smarter person.

— Skiergirl (@Skiergirlskis) August 9, 2012

Then again, everyday citizens are perhaps in a better position than anyone else to weigh in on what affects them most.

Others felt Saul-detractor Ann Coulter would be a good fit:

@MSNBCWatch @EWErickson I completely agree on the need to fire Andrea Saul. Ann Coulter would make a great replacement herself.

— Ric Caric (@riccaric) August 9, 2012

Dear @MittRomney, fire your spokesperson Andrea Saul, and replace her with @AnnCoulter. You're welcome. #GOP

— Sam Valley (@SamValley) August 9, 2012

That, however, could wind up going over like a lead balloon:

Ann Coulter is calling for Andrea Saul to be fired? Didn't Ann Coulter write a column entitled "Yay RomneyCare!" or something?

— Kevin Eder (@keder) August 9, 2012

Ann Coulter blasts Andrea Saul. For basically saying what she wrote in February.

— Ben Domenech (@bdomenech) August 9, 2012


There were also a few votes for the boss:

@YllekTMass @michellemalkin @seanhannity I tweeted Michelle should replace Andrea Saul…NOW !

— Gary T (@GTHOMSE) August 9, 2012

@MittRomney should replace Andrea Saul with @michellemalkin or @Dloesch. I mean if he wants a professional that is.

— Justen Charters (@JustenCharters) August 9, 2012

Very flattering, but no thanks. Life is far more pleasant outside the swamp.

For the record, a few conservatives don’t place the blame for Saul’s gaffe squarely on Saul herself, but also on those who work above her:

If u think Saul's Romneycare response was spontaneous, you're kidding yourself. Was likely approved by several well-paid folks at the top.

— Jedediah Bila (@JedediahBila) August 9, 2012

My defense of Andrea Saul & response to @mattklewis : "Romney is the problem, not his personnel"

— Philip Klein (@philipaklein) August 9, 2012

Regardless of who’s fault it really is, the Romney campaign needs to seriously evaluate its players and approach in the coming months. Pay attention to what really matters to conservatives and don’t go soft when we need you to play hardball. Your success — and all of ours — depends on it.
