Truther Martin Sheen
Calls Romney 'Stupid'

Breitbart's Big Hollywood, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/29/2012 3:16:07 PM

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.

I think Romney's IQ is probably around 160, if not higher. And I've heard several acquaintances of his say he's one of the smartest people they have ever met.

If anybody is a maven on stupid, it should be Martin. Just because you played the prez, doesn't mean you have a clue.

Maybe Hollyweird can hire Zippy in Jan.

I would rather have a businessman who knows how to make money than a choomer who blows my money up in smoke.

Let me get this straight.

C. Sheen:
-Married and divorced three times.
-Accused of physically and mentally abusing all three wives.
-Caught with multiple prostitutes.
-Rageaholic
-Full blown alcoholic.
-Full blown drug addict.

And he's calling Mitt Romney stupid?

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 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.

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.

Re #36: The expression "maroon" in place of moron comes from an old (probably circa 1950s) episode of Bugs Bunny, except that Bugs actually said "Ultramaroon."

As for Martin Shinola, a bigger political numbskull would be hard to imagine. Martin is wrong about 100% of the time, and needs to quit opening up his ignorant mouth.

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.

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.

As expected, the presidential race is tight in Ohio, where the polls just closed: President Obama is winning women 55 percent to 44 percent in the early CBS News exit poll, while Mitt Romney is leading 52 percent to 46 percent among men. Women made up 51 percent of the electorate, compared to 49 percent among women. Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican. Thirty-one percent identified as independent or something else, and Romney has a big edge among this group - 56 percent to 40 percent for Mr. Obama.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia. President Obama has been hugely unpopular in the Mountain State since he first ran

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Attorney General Eric Holder exploded at Texas Republican Rep. Louie Gohmert during a House hearing Tuesday. In the midst of questions about the Justice Department’s failure to divulge documents about the Holy Land Foundation terror funding trial, Gohmert made a side comment about how the House of Representatives found Holder in contempt in 2012 for refusing to turn over documents related to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal. “I realize that contempt is not a big deal to our attorney general, but it is important that we have proper oversight,” Gohmert said. “You don’t want to go there, buddy!

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron compared Republicans that oppose President Barack Obama to the Ku Klux Klan. Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

A few weeks ago, the liberal comedian Bill Maher and conservative strategist and pundit Bill Kristol had a brief spat on Maher’s HBO show, putatively over what instigated the tea party but ultimately over the psychic wound that has divided red America and blue America in the Obama years. The rise of the tea party, explained Maher in a let’s-get-real moment, closing his eyes for a second the way one does when saying something everybody knows but nobody wants to say, “was about a black president.” Both Maher and Kristol carry themselves with a weary cynicism that allows them to

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

As the House prepares for several key votes on former Internal Revenue Service employee Lois G. Lerner and potential legal action, analysts say she and her attorney have mishandled their case by picking and choosing when they want to talk, and to whom they are willing to talk. Ms. Lerner faces a vote in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday that could begin the process of accusing her of contempt of Congress. The Ways and Means Committee announced that it will hold a vote Wednesday on whether to officially accuse Ms. Lerner of breaking the law by

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen. Ted Cruz to run. Often called the “funding father” of conservatism for pioneering direct mail fundraising, Richard A. Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

My first published column was in a local paper opposing the Equal Rights Amendment for the same reasons that Phyllis Schlafly, a conservative lawyer, campaigned on. As ambiguously written, the ERA, would eliminate the men-only draft requirement, repeal protective laws like sexual assault and eliminate the tendency for mothers to obtain custody over their children in divorce cases. Ironically, one of the arguments that helped sink the amendment from ratification was the fear that single-sex bathrooms would no longer be permitted. In addition, opponents of the amendment also warned that it would lead to abortion on demand and same-sex marriages.

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

More than a hundred Republican Party elders gathered this weekend in Texas to celebrate George H.W. Bush’s legacy. But many of the event’s participants had another, much simpler agenda: launching a Jeb Bush presidential campaign. The two-day festivities featured a widely covered speech by Jeb. And on the sidelines, former Bush retainers were frank about their hopes that the eldest son could save a party the family has led on and off since 1988. “We have a responsibility to make sure Jeb runs,” said longtime Bush adviser Andy Card after the speech. “If Jeb Bush does not run, shame on us.” Card added,
