Bruce Willis calls Republican Party nominee Mitt Romney an "embarrassment" in a new interview with Esquire magazine and says he doesn't care which side wins in November. "Yeah, Romney. He's just such a disappointment, an embarrassment," Willis told the magazine. "Chin up, hair up. He's just one of those guys, one of those guys who says he's going to change everything and he'll get in there, and they'll smile at him and introduce themselves: 'We're Congress, we make sure nothing changes,'" Willis went on. "He won't do it. He can't. Everybody wants to be Barack Obama. And what did he change?"

I'm voting third party. Screw Romney and the GOP-E he rode in on.
What's sad is what Romney and his backstabbing GOP-E minions did to Sarah Palin beginning in September 2008.
They can go to hell!
Willis is an embarrassment to bad hairpieces.
“Its unlikely he can succeed at transforming the US into a dictatorship. For that you need the zealots and fanatics, who will destroy democracy in the same spirit that a religious revival destroys the Devil. He lost that loving feeling, win, lose or draw.”
Well, there are zealots and fanatics out there...in the media, unions and elsewhere. I hear people say that Obama hasn’t been able to accomplish what he has set out to do because of Congress, and it will be necessary to dismantle Congress in order to achieve those ends. What do you think that kind of talk means?
On these points I find myself in complete agreement with Mr. Willis.
But then I left the Republican Party back in 1991 when "Read My Lips, No New Taxes" became one in a long series of broken promises by not just then President George H.W. Bush, but the Republican Party as a whole. I had some hope with the Republican Revolution of 1993 which lead to winning the House and Senate, only to be disappointed by the Republican Party becoming the party of big government spending later on. On that point, sometimes there really is little difference between the two parties.
It's all about who's in control and who's spending too much of OUR money at this point. The whole game is rigged and it sucks.
“Everybody wants to be Barack Obama. And what did he change?”
Answer: Obama changed a s*tload of things — all of them anti-American, extreme, and dangerous.
It means that they dearly do want to have a dictatorship. But what’s missing is the religious fervor to carry it off. At this point, the fanatics are starving for religious fervor. Obama is unable to provide it, because he’s lost his anointed status. He’s not “The One (who will bring about Heaven on Earth,” just “the (one in a position to further our agenda).” Further their agenda he will, but the bloom is off the rose. Alexis de Tocqueville noted this, that those that seek centralized administration of every aspect of the lives of others must do it as a religious or semi-religious movement. Writing in 1834 (?) he held up as an example of what happens when that movement-like fervor fades, the Ottoman Empire, which originally was a theocratic despotism, then started reforming and secularizing itself, and as a result was left as a mere despotism and therefore was in rapid decline. Eric Hoffer also says that true believers need to have a powerful belief in the future in order to sacrifice the present to it. O had that sort of revivalist fervor behind him in 2008, but he’s lost it. Without it, he can’t destroy 230+ years of democracy. He might want to, but he can’t, unless he can revive that fervor. He still a sucky, left-wing megalomaniac. But the religion he wants to sell to the true believers is himself, and right now he’s not salable as a religion, merely a politician. That could change, of course. But right now, he’s a good deal below critical mass, even if he wins.
Scoff all you want. The Republican hierarchy and its accomplices in the media promoted Romney from the start. Romney was described as the Republican candidate before the first primary was held. A large contingent of people don’t bother to do their own research on a candidate. If they hear Romney is the one, they aren’t going to vote for anyone else.
Look at the sabotage of Herman Cain’s candidacy. Where do you think all those broads came from? It wasn’t the Democrats. Notice too that the media, including Fox, reported all those allegations without question or investigation. Why do you think that was? The media was influenced to do their utmost to make Cain look as bad as possible. That influence came from the Republican hierarchy.
The other candidates also didn’t have a chance.
Well, he’s absolutely right. Romney IS an embarrassment. Obama and the Dems are imploding as we speak, and the best the GOP can do is a left-wing RINO, empty-suit pretty boy?
Sad part is, a lot of FReepers have decided to throw any pretense at principles out the window and support the guy, instead of rallying behind an actual conservative. Shame on you people.
And it wasn't just stuff like the scandals, either.
Let's look at Virginia, for a minute. Are we really supposed to believe that a successful multi-term governour of our second-largest state (Perry) and the brilliant intellect and organiser behind the Contract for America and the Republican Revolution in 1994 (Gingrich) were both so amateurishly incompetent that they couldn't even get it together to make sure they had enough signatures to get on the ballot in the VA primary, where both should theoretically have done well?
And isn't it odd and coincidental that they both had their sig lists gone over hyper-scrupulously, and had just enough tossed to disqualify them both? Meanwhile, Romney's lists went basically untouched and were accepted quickly?
Now, who was it that the GOP hierarchy in VA, from McDonnell on down supported? Oh right - Romney.
Or how about in Florida, where Gingrich's media ads were being held up in most major markets because they "need to be fact-checked," while Romney's much more negative and dishonest ads were run without problems? Wonder how that happened? Let's see, who did most of the GOP hierarchy in Florida support? You guessed it - Romney.
Let's face it - a major reason why Romney is the nominee is because he and his campaign scammed their way into it with the complicit help of the GOP-E, over and against the wishes of the majority of rank-and-file Republicans during the early primary season.
That makes him an illegitimate nominee. One who does not deserve nor should expect conservative support.
Bruce Willis is correct.
Romney should pull out.
Romney created RomneyMARRIAGE and RomneyCARE
AND ... ROMNEYFEES (taxes, to those in the USA).
Who is more antiAmerican than Milt?
Still voting for MR over barry the traitor
2012 May be the first election where both candidates have a negative approval rating.
Yes, he is an actor, which means he makes his living creating fantasy for dullards, lying and making boatloads of money for it.
He lies for a living. Why anyone would listen to anything he has to say outside of his profession is beyond my understanding.
Resolved......that right thinking Americans stop spending money on movies pay per views and concerts that these left wing radicals perform in.
So like Willis and me you'll not be voting for either the demoncrap or republican 'ZERO' correct?!
I'll only be casting my vote for conservatives; PERIOD. If that means I need to write in my presidential preference or leave that box blank that's what I will do. I will NOT cast my ballot for chunks of puke like obummer or mittins.
You are mistaken. Bruce Willis is conservative.
Let us resolve to NOT vote for Romney and PHONIES. EVER.
Let us resolve to stop the presumptuous liar, backstabber
and cheater: Milt.
I agree, the GOP F’up again.
Welcome to the United Soviet States of America..where the Pravda State Media vet the candidates to the pleasure and needs of the RinoCrat UniParty.
This election will be a non-election...featuring the state approved candidates-whose only distinction is whether they are black or white.
The two-PARTY system merely means that the R & D in DC gang up on Flyover Country....and laugh all the way to the bank as they do so
Ypsilon Chi Alpha and a ditto to that!
Disappointment, an embarrassment,he must have been thinking of Obama.
Romney is a shapeshifting Democrat who covered
up the BIG DIG and imposed RomneyCARE
as he opposed Pres. Bush.
How in the world, does real conservative Willis
NOT measure up to the liar, Democrat, Romney?
Paul's list also went basically untouched and was accepted quickly.
Remember the significance of 15,000 signatures, the threshold beyond which no verification was to be done?
Both Romney and Paul submitted in excess of that number, Gingrich and Perry did not. Yes, it's a screwy rule, and obviously it favors establishment candidates, but it's not like it was hidden from view to these professional politicians.
Perry and Gingrich screwed up. It's as simple as that.
Did you just equate the art of fiction with lying?
“I really dislike 0bama, cannot stand him, but I am pushing 60 and if I openly come out and support Romney I might discover that my opportunities may become less and less in the next few years.”
I am sympathetic to your remarks but Bruce... you are no deep thinker pal... act and blow your mouth harp. I see how badly your reasoning has screwed up your own life and that of your family. You are just part of an evil town and its evil doers. Shut up and act Bruce... or play a gig with your band.

I will NEVER vote for mitt... I know what and who he is... and I will NEVER vote for any dim or progressive EVER... but I also do not support Bruce or any hollyweird drone speaking about things that their lifestyle and suroundings insulate them from. They need to “shut up and sing”.
Bruce Willis is correct.
Romney should pull out.
Suicide by Rino.
You speak the truth.
What is Bruce's FReeper handle?
Read. My. Tagline.
Who REALLY cares what Bruce Willis and all of the other self important liberals have to say. They produce NOTHING to our GNP and only suck money from those who actually EARN their money. I’m personally sick of what these liberals have to say.
Backstabbers is right, and now mitt and his minions here at FR plead for unity.
The ironic thing is that mitt is every bit as much a true "Diva" as the kenyan.
Well Bruce is right about Congress.
But, it doesn’t matter how much I contribute, this is still JR’s house
He is one of us.
Bruce Willis sounds like a real conservative.
I don't think The Bruce needs to worry about losing ticket money from any hand-wringing Lefties, so he can "tell us like it is" all he wants.
The entertainment Lefties, on the other hand, DO have to worry about conservatives withholding their entertainment dollars.
I don't know what Romney is because he just isn't a person I would like to know..Don't ask me why I feel that way I just don't know there is nothing there it is like bumping up against a stone wall..He seems to have no feelings
If memory serves me, there were two RINOs in the primaries, and only one of those was ever a factor in the race.
There were five conservatives and one libertarian.
If the discussions on this board were any indication, every single one of these six had something in their personality, mannerisms, beliefs, plans, or background that rendered them unacceptable to a segment of the FR population.
There was never any consensus amongst FReepers as to which of those should be the nominee, and the viciousness with which they attacked supporters of other (non-Romney) candidates was disturbing, to say the least. Just about every candidate was accused of being a stalking horse for someone else, and FReepers who were vocal in their support of their choice were slandered as “bots”.
It might be personally comforting to point the finger of blame at Romney, the GOP-E, the media, etc. but the real problem was that we had a marginal set of choices to begin with. Once the field started to thin out, the ones that remained were so involved with their own ego trips that they were never able to agree to stand aside for any of the other candidates for the good of the country.
The general voting public seemed to have the same reaction as people on this board, in spite of all those who dismiss them as being uninvolved.
I’m not a fan of Romney in any way, and for the record, I voted for Newt in the primary. But the fact remains, Romney never stopped running after the 2008 election, and you have to give him some credit for having his act together organizationally, something the others were never able to achieve.
The best example of that was the snafu in Virginia.
The Tea Party movement is a hopeful sign, but it needs to become more organized and focused to the point where it can be a force for supporting true conservative baggage-free candidates, especially at the national level, and give them the organizational backing that they would need to compete with the establishment candidates.
I never used to believe any conspiracy theories. Then Obama and his supporters cane along. Now I'm not so sure.
You sentiment jives with mine exactly, especially your tag line. Happy Memorial day!
God Bless Newt and Rick.
All I care about is NOT having Klownie the Kenyan have a 2nd term..we are all F***** if he gets a 2nd term.

The GOPe couldn’t control him.....so they destroyed him.
