Bruce Willis calls Mitt Romney an 'embarrassment,' report says
Fox News ^ | May 27 2012 | Fox News

Posted on 05/27/2012 10:29:08 PM PDT by WilliamIII

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?"

As much as I agree, Bruce should still just “shut up and act”

I know how he feels.

“Willis, who openly supported George H.W. Bush against Bill Clinton in 1992 and President George W. Bush in 2000 said he doesn’t know who will win in November, adding, “I don’t really care.”

In a 2006 interview, the “Die Hard” actor made it clear he was sick of both political parties.

“I’m a Republican only as far as I want a smaller government, want less government intrusion,” he said at the time, before adding that both parties had ceased to be fiscally responsible. “I hate government. I’m apolitical. Write that down. I’m not a Republican.”

He’s still a citizen and has an opinion and the right to express it - plus, he’s telling it like it really is.

I’m right there with him, although I have reached the point where all that matters is getting the Kenyan out.....other than that, I have no expectations that anything will change, but at least we’ll get to see the liberals shed some tears when their hero is booted out.

"I'm not a Republican."

Nor Am I. But I am a conservative, and a Tea Party advocate. And I will vote against the zero come November, come what come may.

I get a kick out of those rare occasions when a celebrity can comment on politics and thread the needle.

I think Willis did it this time.

While I understand where he is coming from and agree, it is vital to the survival of the USA to defeat Obozo by any means possible, even if by a RINO.

Just Exactly who do you have in mind that is going to beat Obama?

I will Vote for that “Person”, “Candidate” ... BUT unless Obama Goes Away ... no deal, the only way I can Vote is ABBO and my choice now is limited to Willard ... we in Texas didn’t have a voice, our Primary is Tuesday... The East Coast has picked (AGAIN)

He won’t get my Primary Vote but he will get my “Any Body but Obama Vote”

TT

Paultards... relax your guy is an Idiot, and YES he has Represented me and I have voted for him in the past, this is a much different job and he isn’t qualified.

Because he gets it, a rare quality in Hollywood. He said one of the reasons he became a Republican was that he pays more in taxes than most everyone he knows earns put together.

Oh. He’s an actor. Apparently a Republican actor. OK. I guess that’s cool. I don’t go to movies so I had no idea. I think the last flick I saw was Full Metal Jacket, which wasn’t too bad.

I’ll look him up. Is he any good?

“we in Texas didn’t have a voice, our Primary is Tuesday... The East Coast has picked (AGAIN)”

***

Actually, conservatives everywhere had no voice. The primaries were rigged from the beginning.

I understand how Willis feels. This election should have been easy. All the Republican Party had to do is nominate a truly conservative candidate as a real alternative to Obama. Instead, they went with a watered down version of Obama. People feel they don’t have any real choice. The “I don’t care” attitude expressed by Willis could sink any effort to unseat Obama. It’s very possible we could be stuck with Obama for another four years...or longer if he succeeds in transforming this country into a dictatorship.

I would be quite surprised if he did such. Please provide a link. Bruce is quite Conservative. I can't imagine him voting for Obama.

I have to agree with his comments on Mitt. He knows clearly that Mitt is a Statist and will do absolutely nothing to turn our Republic around.

That means, either Bruce Willis is a moron, or he's renounced and moved to Singapore.

If he still wants a country he can call his own, he needs to help drag Etch across the finish line next November, along with enough Congress critters to make sure he etches the right sketch in 2013. There is no other option.

You're already paying the price and Romney is not involved in it. If you are that afraid of Romney, vote for Obama.

The link below is only to the magazine issue and not to the article, but I can provide you with all of the pertinent information since I have a copy. It was from this issue:

W Magazine July, 2009

"Bruce himself speaks in a markedly modulated voice, one so low in volume and pitch that at times it's hard to hear him. It's almost as if he's controlling his tendency to speak his mind -- something that, in the past, has led him to misrepresent his own views. Take, for example, the fact that much of America believes Bruce Willis to be one of the most conservative actors in Hollywood, second perhaps only to Mel Gibson. Though he did support George W. Bush in 2000 and attended the Republican National Convention in 1992, Bruce has spent multiple interviews trying to explain away or modify previous political delcarations -- like the time he told reporters that the U.S. should invade Colombia to end drug trafficking.

For the record, he says, he voted enthusiastically for Barack Obama in the last election, and his musings on politics the day we meet sound like those of a bona fide bleeding heart..."

Following that, there are quotes about his work promoting foster care and how he did that during George W. Bush's administration, and will continue to do the same during the current one.

As much as you agree with what, that Mitt Romney is “an embarrassment?”

Is this now the kind of world that we live in, where a successful businessman and a decent family man is an “embarrassment” just because we don’t agree with his politics?

How sad.

C'mon. Powdered Toast Man can beat Mr 0b0tt0.

Newt, Santorum, Cain, Ru Paul, Bachman, any one of them could mop the floor landslide.

The past and forthcoming s elections, are fixed. Neither candidate for either party are, or were article 2 eligible.

It aint coincidence. It is planned.

I am beginning to believe that the acting profession and the lifestyle it brings makes those in it numb to what is going on in the political scene. Instead of having the sensitivity that creative people should have, that sensitivity is lost and what replaces it is a mindless lockstep recitation of a political script—just what they do when they are faced with a movie script. I am sure any person, who is forced to act through a script with fifty takes to get a director’s idea of perfection, may be driven completely insane. There is enough evidence from the acting community that too many are not acting with a full deck even though they have all the material rewards necessary for happiness.

It’s 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.

Bruce Willis is one of only a very few openly Conservative Hollywood celebrities who has had the guts to stand up to the vast number of liberals around him. And like Gary Sinese, he's a big supporter of the troops.

I would pay close attention to what he says...
