Delivering a comic routine that delighted the audience, Coulter took shots at every Democrat from the Obamas to the late Ted Kennedy.
Coulter said that since President Obama was elected, "For the first time in my life, I'm sometimes not proud of my country," rousing cheers from the crowd. She was alluding to a moment from the 2008 campaign trail when Michelle Obama said, "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country."
She joked that former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has created more jobs than Mr. Obama. "She's created at least 11 jobs fact-checking at the AP just for the Palin autobiography," she said.
Coulter also took aim at Vice President Joe Biden, mocking his statement that the end of the Iraq war would be one of the Obama adminitration's "greatest achievements."
"Why couldn't Obama have picked someone respectable as his running mate, you know, like John Kerry did?" Coulter asked.
While praising Republicans for their recent wins in states including Massachusetts, she took a shot at the late Democratic Senator, Ted Kennedy. She said new GOP Sen. Scott Brown's election "must have him rolling in his grave, probably spilling his drink."
Coulter, the most requested speaker on the Young America's Foundation speaker circuit, received the loudest cheers for her answer to a question on whether she has ever dated a liberal.
"They weren't liberal for long," she said.
