Lindsay Lohan endorses Mitt Romney
NY Post ^

Posted on 10/12/2012 7:23:08 AM PDT by Perdogg

LOS ANGELES – Four years ago, Lindsay Lohan referred to Obama's Presidential victory as "amazing," but cut to 2012, and it seems the "Mean Girls" star has had a serious change of heart.

"I think unemployment is very important for now, so as of now I think (my vote) is Mitt Romney," Lohan told reporters, including FOX411's Pop Tarts, at the Mr. Pink Ginseng Drink Launch Party Los Angeles on Thursday night.

She knows who she is and she did it to make Romney look bad.
Does she even follow the news?
Romney could do without this endorsement, it has negative value.

She is a sad, adult-child who confuses attention with love. When she sees someone getting positive feedback for certain behavior, she immediately mimics it in hopes of erasing her latest outrageous behaviors- Stacey Dash (Mitt Romney endorsement) and the poor high school girl who was bullied (LL immediately twittered that she was bullied in high school while her fellow classmates have recounted staying the heck out of HER way) are her latest victims.

The best thing to do is to ignore her.

Lindsay Lohan Endorses Romney, And It’s Actually A Really Big Deal
Walter Hickey | 42 minutes ago | 1,206 | 6

AP Images
Lindsay Lohan came out in support of Mitt Romney yesterday.

While most would at first glance write this off as gossip, it’s the latest instance of an evolving trend that jeopardizes President Obama’s chance at winning the White House.

Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election.

The first person to pick out this trend was Dave Weigel at Slate after sportswriter Buzz Bissinger endorsed Romney after his positive debate performance. Bissinger, Weigel notes, was a low information voter. He ignored the election, watched the debate, took everyone’s word for it on the facts, and backed Romney.

As Weigel notes, it’s not like either side was falling over themselves to score the lusted-after and enviable Bissinger endorsement.

But Bissinger is emblematic of millions of Americans. These people don’t follow politics, don’t understand the issues with depth, and plan to vote based on what little information they’ve gleaned.

Adult film actress Jenna Jameson has backed Romney because “when you’re rich, you want a Republican in office.” Wrestler Hulk Hogan has backed Romney because he wants someone to “just take the lead and run.”

Lohan said that the reason she was voting Romney was “employment.” From The Blaze:

“I just think employment is really important right now,” the troubled star told E!, while at Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Drink event in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday. “So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now.”

Here’s why the Obama campaign should be worried.

Lohan is a low information voter convinced that (a) employment is really important, (b) thinks that employment is not being sufficiently handled by the White House right now and (c) thinks that Mitt Romney is better equipped to handle employment.

That arguably logical sequence is all that it takes for a low-information voter to support Mitt Romney. The thing is, there are millions of voters like her. That should terrify the Obama campaign.

See the other celebrities who have backed Mitt Romney >

When Hollywood celebs like this endorse Romney, it sends a signal to the "clueless" crowd that it's OK to vote for Romney.

So yea, we should care, because it helps chip away at a support group Obama takes for granted.

From RushLimbaugh.com:
Hanoi Jane Endorses Obama
April 3, 2008

REPORTER 1: Jane, who are you voting for?

REPORTER 2: Who gets your vote?

FONDA: Obama.

REPORTER 2: Oh, my God. Heaven help us all.

RUSH: The reporter for TMZ said, "Oh, God. Heaven help us all." Obviously the reporter is an Obama supporter.

_________________________________________________

November 22, 1970 -- During a fund-raising tour for GI deserters, Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Black Panthers, Jane Fonda is quoted in the Detroit Free Press as telling a University of Michigan audience:

"I would think that if you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees that we would someday become communist," and "The peace proposal of the Viet Cong is the only honorable, just, possible way to achieve peace in Vietnam."
http://www.wintersoldier.com/index.php?topic=Timeline

Fonda made the following statement at the University of Texas:
"We've got to establish a Socialist economic structure that will limit private profit-oriented businesses. Whether the transition is peaceful depends on the way our present governmental leaders react. We must commit our lives to this transition ...... We should be very proud of our new breed of soldier. It's not organized but it's mutiny, and they have every right." --Karen Elliott Dallas Morning News December 11, 1971

From 1972: "I am not a do-gooder, I am a revolutionary. A revolutionary woman."

Hugo Chavez Says He Would Vote for Obama

"President Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan dictator who once called President George W. Bush "the devil," has endorsed Barack Obama in the 2012 presidential race, according to the Associated Press.

"If I were American, I'd vote for Obama," Chavez said in a televised interview Sunday. "And I believe that if Obama was from Caracas, he would vote for Chavez, I am positive."

My Vote's for Obama (if I could vote) ...by Michael Moore

Friends,

I don't get to vote for President this primary season. I live in Michigan. The party leaders (both here and in D.C.) couldn't get their act together, and thus our votes will not be counted.

So, if you live in Pennsylvania, can you do me a favor? Will you please cast my vote -- and yours -- on Tuesday for Senator Barack Obama?

The Communist Party USA (CPUSA):
"We are a party of unity in action. We are an integral part of every struggle and movement for change to eliminate poverty and joblessness, against racism and for full equality. We are participants, initiators and leaders of every movement to make life better now and much better in a socialist future." Yeah, so they supported an oppressive dictator, like the Repubs and Democrats haven't? The CP is still around, has apologized for that whole Stalin thing, and has a quickly growing youth section.

Good analysis. How many people rely on TMZ for information? If some of these people start getting the idea that it’s ok to vote for Romney, they may follow suit. Why should the dims always get the low-information vote?

In 2008 she offered to campaign for 0 and the official campaign turned her down. This IIRC resulted in her father ripping the 0 campaign. She said some nasty stuff about Sarah Palin too again if memory serves. If I were the Romney campaign I would steer clear of this train wreck as well.

I have to admit that my first reaction was the same as many others here, but the article you have cited makes some very good points. I think Linsay’s endorsement actually is important because of what it represents.
