Actor Martin Sheen, about to start shooting a film based on the notion that 9/11 was an inside job, thinks Mitt Romney is stupid. Sheen, who recently told us President Barack Obama would win in a cakewalk, opened up about the GOP challenger to The Huffington Post. He first focused on Romney's recent presidential debate performance and later dropped some Occupy Wall Street lingo on the interviewer. (Snip) " He’s never had to compete for a job or face eviction or struggle to get a college loan. He’s a guy that the old phrase applies to: ‘he was born on
Comments: Sheen is a drug-addled maroon. Romney and his wife lived in a basement apartment going to college with a desk formed by an old door on sawhorses. He also served overseas as a missionary which in no way is a glamorous lifestyle. Martin Sheen is the perfect idiot to represent the left along with his co-star Woody Harrelson. The movie budget must have a heavy choom ration in it.
For thousands of years nobody cared about what entertainers thought about serious topics. It was widely understood that performers, regardless of talent, were in general ignorant, immoral, egotistical and childlike. They were applauded for their performances. Decent people did not associate with them - not in public anyway. They had bad habits and were bad company.
The lowering and coarsening of standards in the past century has changed all that. Actors, actresses, entertainers and celebrities are actually looked up to by some people - usually young people with little experience of life. The cult of celebrity invests them with qualities of intelligence and wisdom that are seldom present.
Thus one can, and should complain of an airhead like Martin Sheen and his foolish opinions about politics or anything else of importance. But the reason he thinks his opinion is worth something is that other people do too. The real problem, the problem that is causing all the problems, is the fan base of people like Sheen and Obama and other celebrities. They are the load that is likely to swamp and sink the ship of state.
The truther film that Sheen and his fellow travellers are making will be a major BOMB at the box office. What these people don't know is that the majority of Americans love their country and don't believe that this was an inside job. This will also be very painful to those who lost loved ones on that day. Maybe Sheen's next film should be "Benghazi Nights" if he wants to highlight real malice and incompetence.
There are reasons someone who graduates with honors from Harvard Law School and in the top 5% of his Harvard MBA class don't have to "compete" for a job or face eviction, but being dumb isn't one of them.
I suspect Goveror Romney didn't have to compete for a job because he created his own - plus a whole lot of others. By the way, he gave away his inheritance, took no salary for saving the Olympics or for being governor of Massachusetts. Right now he has his campaign busses delivering supplies to emergency shelters. What have you done with your life, Martin, besides complain about the USA? I think I prefer Governor Romney.
I am sick and tired of,these nitwit Hollywood types telling people they don't even know that they are stupid. By all rights, most Repubs have more education than dims. I am a woman and I have two degrees. I worked my way through college, paid my own way. I finished college at 21. I was a teacher for over 33 yrs, loved my job and my students. I would never call someone I don't even know stupid or uneducated. These people are without any manners or soul. Shame on you all!
I have to laugh when I see one of these Hollywood "stars" commenting on politics. They always seem to have had their fifteen minutes of fame, but now the spotlight is dimming, and choice roles are becoming fewer and farther between.
Poor ol' Marty...He'll see his name in a headline, cut it out and paste it in his scrapbook, and then it's back to oblivion. Must be tough.
Actors in low-budget, "B" movies feel compelled to remind everyone in Hollywood that they're liberals. It helps them to get parts in movies and television programs. In Hollywood, the worst possible scenario is to be forgotten. It's much worse than any kind of bad press.
When you hear and see someone say something like that, somewhere I learned to "Consider the source". Historically, most court jesters and actors were not people to be taken seriously. Most, not all, are delusional buffoons.
Martin Sheen failed the entrance exam to the University of Dayton (Ohio). However, in 2005 he did manage to study literature for *one semester* at the National University of Ireland (Galway campus) after which he was awarded an "honorary" degree.
The self-righteousness of the leftists still amazes me. They honestly can't see their stupidity and ignorance. When confronted by reality, attack is their only defense. And, boy, are they attacking now. Their entire mindset is crumbling in a mass breakdown. A beautiful thing to watch.
Instead of calling Romney stupid (who has two Harvard degrees), you might want to look at Charlie Sheen who looks older than you do, due to his heavy drug use. (Please get him to a dentist to fix his rotten teeth).
PS I think you are still mad about the cancellation of your series "The West Wing". Boo hoo, nobody cares about you anymore.
Poor Marty got so drug addled on the set of Apocolypse that he can't tell reality from rainbow fantasies. He surely realizes that even as a 1-hour per week President on West Wing that he was smarter and certainly worked harder than President Empty Chair.
Re: #36 -- A maroon is moron with attitude, makes them all the more foolish. Suspect OP knows exactly what they want to say and how to spell it. Doesn't Martin Sheen frequently like to make a big deal about how very "Christian" he is? Has that pose been temporarily suspended?
Darn it #38 you stole my thunder. It looks like the fake president Ramon Estevez aka Marty Sheen is up to his old tricks again. Remember when this tool called President Bush a moron. Even though he unlike Sheen has a BA in history from Yale and a MBA from Harvard. Now he is calling a far smarter man in Mitt Romney a dummy. A man who like Bush got his MBA from Harvard along with his law degree. He even graduated at the top 5% of his class. Long story short this highschool graduate calling the governor stupid is like me calling Obama a great president or Moochelle Obama gorgeous. Totally laughable.
We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.
Former Gov. Angus King, running as an independent, won the Senate contest Tuesday in Maine, NBC News projected, taking a seat that had been held by the Republicans.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.
Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political
A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.
Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
