Star power: Celebs and their picks for president
Posted on 10/19/2012 10:23:22 PM PDT by SmithL
The race has tightened between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. And the celebrities are picking sides. In this year's race, endorsements have come from actors, rappers, a former quarterback, a porn queen and a seven-year-old reality TV star. Here's a look at some of those celebrities and who they've endorsed in this year's race -- including some that probably made the campaigns cringe.

The endorsements that matter to me are Parents, close friends in the political world, and those I know who personally know candidates. My biggest factor are the records of the candidates themselves in making my own decision.
As for not voting for someone, I look at the Brady Campaign, UAW, MEA, Planned Parenthood, and NARAL.
As far as celebrities, I don't care who they back. I've met many famous people. They range from good people to jerks like everybody else.

Does anyone really care??
Besides me and a bunch of people are probably less likely to support anyone who gets celebutard-porn star endorsements

I agree with you about endorsements. I am not impressed like the Left is with having celebrity endorsements of my candidates. However, since it takes a considerable amount of courage for celebrities to break away from the pack to endorse Republicans(and most likely be attacked by their peers and given fewer roles,) I do respect them and appreciate them for their decision to take a stand. Meanwhile it takes absolutely no courage for the bevy of airhead actresses and Hollywood elite to endorse Democrats. "Everybody" is doing it.

Always take your political advice from people that read other peoples words and repeat them while pretending to show emotion and/or cry for a living. /S
These lists never influence what I think of the candidates. But they always influence what I think of the celebrity.
Wow, so true and well said! If only these celebrities understood just how they are perceived.

(This propaganda has been edited to include some fully orbed hyperbole..)
I found it interesting that Mitt stressed his lifelong sobriety as an asset in (at least) three separate jokes at the Al Smith dinner. Good living really shows on Governor and Mrs. Romney.
