Just days away from the election the race between Mitt Romney and President Obama is tight but actor Martin Sheen it taking a stance and telling folks what exactly he thinks of Romney.
At Wednesday backstage at Free The Children’s We Day youth rally in Calgary, the actor voiced his opinion on the second presidential debate. He says:
“Mr. Romney really showed his ass there, and how stupid he is and arrogant. There’s an old phrase, arrogance is ignorance matured, and that’s what we saw.”
As for the third debate Sheen thought Obama:
“gave Romney too much time and didn’t shut him up when he could have easily done so”
However he says Obama came off “far and away the most qualified.”
The actor also took time to warn what a Romney presidency can do to the country. He says:
“He is, in essence, a very arrogant, very successful businessman [who] believes in unreined free enterprise. He doesn’t have a clue what 99 per cent of the people are going through. He’s never lived on that level. 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 third base and thought he hit a triple,”
“He would be a reflection of the one per cent. They say this kind of rhetoric that I’m doing right now is advocating class warfare, but that’s nonsense. There is no class warfare; the war ended a long time ago and the poor lost very badly. While the upper one per cent of our population has continued to rise, the 99 per cent has continued to drop. The unions are at risk, and it’s no secret it’s not getting any better for the 99. If Romney is elected, that’s going to be the level that we start at.”
Well it’s clear who this guy isn’t rolling with!
