Stacey Dash on facing twitter backlash after supporting Mitt Romney: "I don't get it...I was shocked, saddened"

On Tuesday evening, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomed actress Stacey Dash to the program for an honest and revealing live interview.

Having recently tweeted her support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, the woman best know for her role in 1995's "Clueless" shared the reasons behind her endorsement:

"I would say because of the state of the country, and I want the next four years to be different," says the 46-year-old who voted for Barack Obama in 2008. "I believe him...I watched him, the Governor and his wife, on 'Meet The Press.'...They spoke to me, they seemed authentic and genuine."

After publicizing her political intentions on Twitter, Dash received a tremendous amount of negative response, much having to do with her race, and gender:

"The fury, I really don't understand the fury," she told Piers Morgan. "I don't understand it. I don't get it...I was shocked, saddened. Not angry. Saddened and really shocked. But you know what, you can't expect everyone to agree with you."

Watch the clip, as the woman who played Dionne alongside Alicia Silvertone's Cher further explains what drew her towards Mitt Romney and the Republican Party.

        Yeah he (Romney) changes his mind all the time. I could not understand why the President allowed him to get away with that in the debate. If you look back on the republican debates, he's done a 180 on a number of issues....the president has to be calm but hard on him in the next debate..,.,

        Stacey should know that Latter-Day Saints/Mormans historically discriminated against African-americans by prohibiting them from roles in the church's priesthood and misinterpreting holy scriptures to justify their prejudice and preaching African-americans were a 'cursed' race. Supporting a politician whose religion has latent traces of continued prejudice is disappointing. – Or maybe she is just clueless.

She has been in many movies as well as some music videos. She most recently had a tv show on the CW. She may not be as popular as a Kardashian, but she is a known celebrity.

        I'm black and I have never heard of this women. Hey she can vote for whomever she chooses, but as a black man in America I think it is important to support Obama, besides I feel he has done a great job. My wife is white an attorney and she agrees with me. If I thought Obama had cause problems in this country or hasn't tried to fix the problems I'd vote for someone else and not Romney/Ryan because their both liars and very creepy. Last, I can tell you from my own experiences from working with a few mormon's that they are very racist people. If Romney is elected it will turn back the clock 100 years. Stacey Dash can go to hell!!

        Its not about race! Seriously what do you think the Voter ID law was created for? So that the poor, the disabled, the disadvantage, and minorities will not vote. This was a law specifically created by Republicans to make sure that this part of America can not have their vote and their voice heard because if they could they would clearly vote Obama. Don't pretend that race, or gender, or social class is not a factor when the Republicans have made a clear point of trying to get a certain group of people NOT to vote.. Its always a factor. Now do I believe that Stacy Dash should have her opinion of course. But lets not pretend that everything is lipstick and lollipops in American politics.

        Given the fact blacks have voted for "White Men" running for President from the time Blacks won the right to vote dispels the notion that black people or some blacks are racist. Barack Obama was not the only black person to run for the presidency and in those previous presidential runnings by Chisolm, Jackson, Sharpton, etc. – Blacks still overwhelmingly voted for a "White Man" – duh!!!

        There are definitely a number of vocal prejudiced black people who will excoriate any black people who "get out of line" in other words: "don't vote for the liberal or black candidate". There are also a number of vocal liberal white people who do the same thing. They have "tolerance" for all kinds of situations and beliefs as long as you aren't a conservative. I think that the majority of people: liberal, moderate, and conservative are good, reasonable, and kind.

        Of course there's only been one black nominee, so prior to 2008 the choice was voting for a while man or not voting at all. That's not necessarily "support."

        Didn't the President plead for civil discourse in our politics? Here's your chance to respect his request.

        It is not nice to see your concern for some some Americans about who they date. Is it because of the the color of their skin, the content of their character, or they don't believe what you do? Freedom of thought is not tolerated in your world view unless it agrees with you. A gulag in hell for non-believers, right? Obama hasn't helped the country and four more years could make things much,much worse with unemployment and debt. It is very true, the rich need to share more of their wealth, but they will not do so if coerced. The wealhty will flee, close down their business, and futher hide their assets. Watch the movie Atlas Shrugged II. Better yet, read the book, and read Animal Farm. The lies about what really happened (and when) in Libya should clue us in. Obama, a week after the terrorist attack, lied on David Letterman blaming the attack on a video and protests. Why do people still stand behind these politicians who decieve us over crucial matters like what happened in the death of Chris Stewart and 3 others Americans. Privately, are they lying to their mothers?
        Mathat Stewart rightly went to prison for insider trading, Pelosi (a more equal pig) hid behind congressional privelage. You want more of this? They want to finish what they started? What? Take over over health care? What will happen to everyone who works in the prvate insurance industry? Who will pay for their healthcare? As you socialize, you end up with less of the private sector paying taxes. To keep the same revenues coming in the governent will have to raise taxes and fees on everyone else. But everyone else doesn't want to pay for someone elses needs. This will lead to more tax cheating, blackmarkets, and fraud. Do you want to live in a nation of 9 dollar gas to pay for a socialized system that rewards dependency for a vote? More money spent on gas = less money spent at a movie, dinner, clothes, etcetera. There is little hope for some of you blinded in a belief that you can play God making the world a better place by taking from someone else. It is stealing, it wil kill the American Spirit, and it will destroy our nation. Is this what Obama wants to utterly "transform America"? God help us, and if you don't believe God, allow me the right to do so, otherwise go to hell...just kidding...maybe I deserve to go their also, but I believe in Grace.

        Don't believe the hype as Republicans are hoping and praying for bad news..This economy is not doom and gloom. We are doing big things here, revolutionary things. I am pleased with Obama's leadership and long list of accomplishments. We'd be worse off if it weren't for Obama stepping in to save the auto industry and the banks from collapsing etc.... We didn't get here overnight; it took decades to create the current economic conditions just as it will take time to CONTINUE turning things around. Who thought everything would be restored in 4 short years? If you did, your misguided and out of touch with reality. Real change has ALWAYS been difficult. Real change, not band aid fixes. We can and will do it!

      The question is.. Does Stacey Dash get my pity for being a star who made a conscious choice to live in the public eye? The answer is: NO What this woman does or who berates her for it is absolutely of no value to our country. She in no way represents anything at all other how confused movie stars are about life. What is really the standout issue with this program and Pierce Morgan in general is that he has morphed himself into someone I simply don't recognize any longer as the man I once enjoyed watching on TV. He went from being a logical intelligent and moderate guy and is transformed now into this paunchy overbearing know it all buttinsky who pushes this fake issues and spin doctored nonsense at us as if it's a real issue when really all this is is Pierce using CNN to run his own Romney TV campaign. I'm done with him. My heart hurts now just to look at him and what he's become. I loved Pierce for maintainng objectivity, his polite manners with difficult people, and his witty way of getting to the heart of things. This man I see now on CNN is not that person. The last thing I need to waste my time on is the backward right wing psycho-spin agenda. He's turned his show into a freak show if you ask me.

Has she seen "that" Mitt Romney and chose to vote for him still? She deserves all the flack she is getting. I don't want that man leading my great country.

Personally, i don't think she even know how a president is elected but when asked why she changed her vote from Obama to Romney, she paused and gave a stupid excuse. If anyone knows anything about the 2 of the 3 branches of government, it takes longer than 4 years to change an entire country around that had 8 years of dictator Bush. Stacy needs to stop focusing on her dumb vote change and focus more on her career, or lack of one . She is so far from Angelina Jolie far as demand.

      She's wants the country to head in a different direction. Well, if she wants the country to head in a different direction, then there's no better way to accomplish that than to vote for Romney/Ryan. The last time I checked, GWB was on the campaign trail endorsing Mitt Romney and defending his failed policies that Romney has pledged to continue. This woman is brainwashed and illiterate. This is a black woman who is successful today and able to vote simply because people like Rosa Parks and Dr. Martin Luther King., Jr. put their lives on the line and fough for racial justice and equality and for an end to racial segregation and discrimination and for the right of all Americans to be able to vote. But this woman is so ignorant of her own history that she's now willing to vote for a republican party that's busy injecting Jim Crow into the political scene, dividing the country with their bigotry and racisn and suppressing the right of Americans to vote. As they say, those who ignore history are bound to repeat it. Good luck!

        Cant you see that you and Magic Johnson are pointing out to the world that you are the racists because you are voting based upon skin color and not the issues. If you disagree with a black man, whether right or wrong, you should based on the issues. It makes me sick to see liberals pull the race card so often when they are clearly the ones letting skin color dictate their decision making. Any black man in their right mind should be taking a hard look at the soaring unemployment numbers for blacks and wonder if they can take four more years .

        The last time I checked, the voter suppression campaign by the GOT was designed to suppress a certain RACE of Americans from casting their vote. And all the profiling laws in Arizona and throughout the south is geared toward discriminating against Hispanic Americans. Furthermore, when candidate Obama ran for office, people like Rush Limbaugh who's a stern supporter of Mitt Romney and many in the republican party said that a black man should not be allowed to be President of the United States. And two years ago, that tea party president said that the emancipation proclamation was a mistake and that blacks were just looking for handouts and big screen tvs. Let's face it, RACE is a game the GOT do best.

        Ms Dash is a simpleton, she has no idea of the political climate in America. She dosen't understand that in electimg President she is also electing a ideology. Someone ask her to explain how the ideology of the Republican party is going to unite the country. How can she say that she believed Romney when all he has done is tell a different lie every day. Has she been living under a rock? She is a stupid woman.

        You are bashing the Republican party without doing your homework... It was mostly Republicans who marched with Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Washington, it was mostly Republicans who helped make the changes for a better America in the 1960s. I'm not saying they are any better than the Democrats. But, It's these same Repubilicans, who want to give those rights that you have, those same rights to the unborn. Who speaks for the unborn? The Democrats? NOT! Please do a little research for yourself and stop repeating what the news/media and bad educators want you to think. I'm an educated woman and I will vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan!

      SO IS MITT ROMNEY REALLY THE BEST GUY TO MOVE THIS COUNTRRY FORWARD?

      Let me see if I get this right...

      Mitt Romney has gained significant ground in the national polls overnight simply because President Obama did not attack him on Bain Capital, on outsourcing American jobs, on laying off American workers, on calling for the auto industry to go bankrupt, on tax evasion, on saying it is not his job to worry about 47% of the American people, on saying he's not concerned about the poor because there's a safety net for them, on saying that he likes to fire people, on failing to suport equal pay for equal work, on Massachusetts being 47th in job growth, on saying its not worth moving heaven and earth to find Bin Laden...???

      So doesn't President Obama get any credit at all for stabilizing the American economy, for saving the auto industry, for creating 5.2 million private sector jobs, for saving 2.2 million public sector jobs, for making healthcare affordable for all Americans, for reforming Wall Street to safeguard against another catastrophic economic meltdown, for ending the illegitimate Iraqi war, for setting a deadline to end the Afghan war, for strenghtening our national security by getting rid of Osama Bin Laden and thousands of other al Qaeda operatives, for fighting for the middle class, for women, for seniors, for gays and lesbians, for minorities, for students, for our military men and women,, for all Americans...???

    Lets tell it like it is. She has escaped the chains of the Democratic Party and they are hunting her down with threats and intimidation. There are probably others who are having the same thoughts as her and it scares the heck out of the Dems that more people might begin thinking for themselves and also take off running; intimidation is the way to keep that from happening. The rest of you, do you hear that? Don't even think about running! They will make your life hell. This might be worse on her than if she were trying to leave Scientology, or converting from Islam to Christianity.

Folks: presidential candidates who lie about their taxes, say behind closed doors that 47% of the American people can go to hell, call Russia the Soviet Union and our biggest enemy and completely change their platform on which they campaigned all year just to score points in a debate do not have good character. Please don't believe this fallacy he is now presenting. He'll say anything to win. Please do not vote Romney. We can't trust him. He won't fulfill his promises, not those that would benefit average people. His dishonesty is scary for our country and for us as each of us (partcularly middle class) Americans.

    If Ms. Dash had a coherent argument for advocating for Romney I would listen. I too believe that Obama has turned his back on his base. Unfortunately Ms. Dash has no grasp of the issues. She speaks in airheaded generalizations. Fortunately she had Pierce lobbing softball questions at her the entire interview. We would all like the next 4 years to be different from the last 4, 2008 in particular. Most of the slogans she mentioned on are actually lines from the Obama campaign with one hilarious attempt at a MLK quote. Clearly this is a ploy to give a boost to her dying acting career. I certainly don't begrudge Ms. Dash's right to vote for whatever candidate she chooses. I'm going to exercise my right to ignore her. What's next Pierce? A foreign policy debate with Britney Spears?

      This was on the money (no pun intended).

The representation of big money and the American dream of hoarding it . The idea that tax breaks for the rich so they can spread the prosperity by way of jobs is laughable. Let's not forget just how cheap Ann Romney keeps telling the press Mitt is. Turning off the water heater when the family leaves the house. That skinflint ain't making new jobs for nobody. And thank you for pointing out Piers' super gentle line of questioning that is beginning to nauseate me. He is sounding awfully pro-Romney these days when we count on CNN to be non-bias. Britney Spears on foreign policy. Too funny!

    I just caught the last couple of minutes of her interview. Although I am Canadian I, along with a great many others here, have followed the campaigns of both candidates. It seems to me, both parties and most of the U.S., are missing the obvious...the entire world is in financial difficulty, including Canada. The IMF has just announced they are downgrading all countries prospects in the coming year. Check the stats....since 2008, most of the countries in the industrialized world have economies that are stagnant or have fallen behind, and jobless numbers that are worse than 2008. Stop blaming Obama, it was the Republicans and Bush for the most part, that started the whole debacle! We get that, even here in the far north. Again, I am Canadian and can't vote. I have no vested interest. It is just amazing to me, that the people in the U.S. seem to think you are suffering more, or are worse off than most of the rest of the industrialized world!

    Not surprise about Paul Ryan ducking reporters’ questions. He's a light-weight just like his wanta be boss...Romney. I really believe it is just a few of us who are really listening to what they are telling folks. I still say (yeah I’m that 20% who say Obama won the debate) Romney didn't know or understand what he was talking about in the debate and Obama caught on and bowed out graciously. However I understood Mr. Obama. Obama's style and rhetoric was dignified not boorish like Romney's. Last Spring I was hospitalized and then sent to a skilled nursing facility for 6 weeks, and who would believe in the same year, I'm once again in a skilled nursing facility this time for 3 weeks but have a private room. The first nursing facility I had a roommate, an 87-year old Caucasian woman who suffers from dementia. Funny we never spoke or talk with each other. I did tried a few times but decided to give her her space. Sometimes she would lash out at the staff, say crazy things and at times do a complete shutdown (Hmmmm….sounds like Romney). However, in the very wee hours when I somehow was awaken or was still awake I would hear her talking, quite naturally to herself, but this talk was different, well-paced. a modulate tone so as they say "I took a listen." The speech or talk was well beyond me, but funny I could understand it. Thus, I inquired about her background and was told she was a retired college professor and would recite her lectures from time to time. The moral of the story is that Mr. Obama had a better handle in presenting his message as to say you could understand him in the debate than Romney and the reason for that is because Mr. Obama too was a college professor.

    Thought to share that. There’s a new Boogeyman on the scene his name is Mitt Romney. Terrorizing old folks, poor folks, little kids, China, the Queen of England, Mr. Obama, those Angelical Christians, and so on . . .

    While I do agree with anyone's right to form and cast an opinion, I do encourage you to research those opinions prior to making them public knowledge. I just reviewed Ms. Dash's interview on Piers Morgan and unfortunately found her to be flighty, unable to articulate a political position (beyond a smile and a flip of your hair), and a simple "listen to what he says (Romney)". I too am a registered GOP supporter, currently undecided. But I cannot help but show concern for my country and political party when my representative has an inconstant opinion on foreign policy (Syria, Israel). tends to reflect whatever opinion is "in the room", promises a $5 tril deficit (tax cut) with no formal plan and is constantly apologizing after offending 47% of hard working, retired military, students and the aged or elderly. Just as I cringe when citizens encourage voting simply because a candidate is Black, I also cringe when (in my opinion) a celebrity encourages voting without facts or knowledge of the candidate's platform. I've just reviewed your FB page and I see "How is it?" and "Is it Hot?" Never a mention of strong political beliefs or policies, community involvement nor charity work. Is this current political position you have presented a tactic for Hollywood exposure? Ms. Dash, you are a mature, beautiful woman, going forward please reflect more substance in both character and content.

    As we know, our society is extremely judgmental; which is one of the many reasons why a lot of celebrities do not get involve with outwardly supporting politicians. In my opinion, a person’s political choice is their personal business, however, I do not feel that in this case Stacey Dash is getting backlash for outwardly saying that she voted for President Obama in 2008 but is now switching to Romney. As a proud supporter of President Obama and his re-election, I would like to say that it is easy for all of us to judge and criticize our president on the job he is doing, but I also feel that the people who are now voting against him need to ask themselves: What have I done to help President Obama during the past four years?......Have I just publicly stated that I am going to vote for him when a camera and microphone is in my face?...Have I financially supported him?....Have I tried to get one of his campaign reps to speak to me about some of my own ideas that may benefit our country?...etc….I think that if a person who has decided that President Obama has disappointed him can answer those questions with a “yes” and be honest about it, he or in this case, she (Stacey) should be at peace with their decisions…And, if Stacey has not done all that she can do to help her Democratic party then there is no need for her to complain about what President Obama has or has not done…What may be important to Stacey may not be as important to the average American citizen. She is, after all, a celebrity and I put her in the 1% of Americans who do NOT identify with the 99% of middle to lower class citizens….It is easy to criticize someone else but it is even harder to help make a difference in the lives of others…When the going gets rough some people abandon ship and in this case, I feel that is exactly what Stacey has done. And, I pray that the rest of us who have been Democrats long before President Obama threw his hat into the ring will not get wishy-washy and stick with our political party. Also, let us remember President Obama NEVER promised that his presidency would be an easy one, therefore, we must continue to BELIEVE IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE our American dream of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…..God Bless!!

    As a black man I have no problem with Stacey Dash supporting Romney, she can vote and support anyone she likes. The thing that puzzles me about her interview is the surprise and shock that she had from others. What world is she living in? At this point in her life she has to know that people in general will not agree with everything she says. In addition going on social media you also have to know that again people in general will write and say anything they want without consequences. She has to know that, right? Why is she shocked? When you are dealing with people you get what you get, the good and the bad. Maybe Stacey had been around too many yes people, people who will agree with everything she says all the time and don't criticize.

    As I mentioned earlier, I am Canadian, however, like many of my countrymen/women, we have more than a passing interest in U.S. politics. In relation to a couple of comments made during this current topic....I also agree with some folks regarding, what appears to be a bias on the part of the network toward the Rep party, in their coverage and these interviews. This includes not only Piers, but Anderson Cooper as well. Having said that, I would like to digress and reiterate my earlier comment related to everyone doing their homework, pertaining to the state of the economies and jobless rates in the rest of the world. Get real Rep's, the U.S. is no better and no worse than the majority of the industrialized world! To put it into perspective, Canada has fared better than most countries during this financial/economic crisis, and the U.S. is actually on a par or better with us in most areas....we have a slight edge with our jobless rate, but not much. I'm not saying things are great....just remember where you were 4 years ago, when you probably thought you were going over the precipice, and yet you survived, and as I have already said, you are doing as well as the rest of the industrialized countries, and better than a great many of them. My point, all this Romney person does is repeatedly use the economy and jobless rate as a club to hammer the Dem's., and yet I have not heard anything concrete from him or his party in the way of real solutions. There is no substance to his metaphorical hammer!!

I'm a black pastor from Florida, I didn't vote for our President the first time & I certainly won't be voting for him this time! He was not ready to be president & his term in office has proven that! I'm thankful my nation would put skin color aside in selecting a president however Mr. Obama was not the right person for the job no matter what his color! I'm an American! & I will vote my convictions not my skin color! I believe that with Gov. Romney's state executive experience, business experience, Olympic experience, & perspective on how to turn this economy around, he's the man for the job he's got my vote! Right on Stacey!

    It is unbelievable to what extents the liberals illiterate go. It is certainly Ok for a famous person to say they support Obama but they get attack if they say they support Romney. This just show everyone what the real liberal establishment is all about. And the hypocrisy from most people attacking her and other people voting, calling her names and telling her the only reason she does it is to get a job or that she doesn’t have a clue, who cares she still has the same right as you do to make her own decision and vote for whoever she wants. What about the celebrities like Snoop Dogg (smokes weed with son), Lady Gaga (no comments), Madonna (Black Muslim in the White House comment) etc that support Obama? I don’t hear you calling them name, or is your intellectual so low that they impress you more than Stacey Dash? I for one don’t care who votes for Obama, is their right, but I certainly don’t go calling them names or bashing them for having a different view than mine, it is our right as Americans, it is our choice and showing a little civility won’t hurt you.

    Lets not forget, that

    2) Barack Obama is not "black" he is also biracial (black and white)

    Why is it that everyone in this country that is mixed is automatically "black?"

    Stacy Dash in my eyes, is white. Barack Obama in my eyes, is also for the most part, "white."

      the reason why you are automatically black when you are biracial is because white legislative said if you are 8% African American then you are black. that is why the majority of mixed races that are half black identify themselves as black.

      Stacey Dash is of Bajan, African American, and Mexican descent. Where did you get your facts from? Or are they just assumptions? Barack Obama identifies himself as a black man. Legislation says that if you are 8% African American, you are black (as stated).

      Why do you see them both as white/mostly white? They are both biracial. The ignorance of your comment expresses the close-mindedness of some people in this country. The influential, successful, and the educated aren't always "white." Open your eyes and get your facts straight, it's 2012 and we live in a diverse world.. it's not always "black" or "white."

Although no one is saying it, if Ms. Dash looked white, there would be no issue whatsover. By virtue of her appearance, she is labeled a sell-out, traitor etc... Tolerance must work both ways.

    Many people don't "get it".. Where it comes to Romeny and Ryan and their attack on the "other" people.. Which includes most the United States.
    Right now Detroit isn't the only community experiencing crime due to police cut backs..Ryan thinks they "need jobs"...?
    People need jobs that pay enough to have decent lives..Unfortunately the tax cuts and the things they propose to do to bring those jobs back will create more suffering and hardships .. If they cared about the people of the United States , the Bush tax breaks that were :"supposed" to cajole the rich into bringing jobs back 'WOULD HAVE DONE IT'~!..
    BUT LIke all Blackmailers ......NOW they want 'MORE"
    And thats who and what Romney/Ryan and those that back them are all about.. They are about having it all.. And doing as they please.. A whole world full of people who can do nothing but as they dictate, because they "need" them to survive..
    Be careful what you wish for.. Many societies have fallen under tyrannized rule.

    I don't understand how people can be so blindsided and dumbfounded. Listening to Romney how can she say "he spoke to her" what did he say, when his words were empty? Any body can talk in circles, around the issues which is what Romney/Ryan are doing. They are not being forthcoming and those who say they speak to them are for lack of a better word, ignorant. Romney was loud, argumentative and lying at the debate so I guess that makes him seem more aggressive and for the American people. Just because a person speaks louder than you or talks over a person, doesn't make what they are saying to be true. That's why it's so important to LISTEN to what Romney/Ryan are saying. People are so easily confused and persuaded. WAKE UP PEOPLE! Good grief are Americans that simple-minded. ROMNEY/RYAN ARE LYING TO YOU. LISTEN to what they are saying. They are talking in circles and just appeasing you just to get your vote. If they get in office we will have a rude awakening.

    What I don't understand is why in the hell does her opinion even matter. Everybody has one, you know. Is it because she's an actress? A so-called celebrity? Since when do celebrities' political opinions carry more weight than anyone else's? She doesn't even know what she's talking about. Who can see into Romney's heart and mind and see what he would do as President? He lies so much, how could you possibly trust him with that kind of power? Do you really think that he cares about non-wealthy people? He's never had a student loan. He's never had a mortgage. He's never had a car note. He's never been out of work. He's never been without income. He's never had any money problems (out of Ann's own mouth). How could a person like this ever relate and understand how most Americans live. And to think that he supposedly loves America so much and cares about the country so much that he places his money in offshore accounts, hids it so that it's not taxed and thinks that his 14% tax rate is fare when most of us pay more as a percentage of our income is absurd. I'm sorry. I just don't see the sense in electing Romney.

    She doesn’t like the state of the country and she wants the next four to be different. If Romney win it’s going be different alright, not good for the senior citizen, poor and middle class. She always had some money so I guess she not included in the 47%. How soon people forget that before President Obama was elected he said that it would take more than one term to fix the mess George Bush left, so why I people putting a time limit on him. In my option I think President Obama did a hell of the job for what he went through. This man had been most disrespected and scrutinized President that I know of. What other President had their citizenship questioned and they even went as far as printing an article that his relative was a slaves which proved his family been in this country longer the majority non-black people mainly the dude with the road kill on his head. Every bill he tried to pass Congress fought him on, they would rather see him fell and let the country go down the toilet to see him succeed.
    Thinking like that she might as well join the TEA PARTY which proved racism is still around, it was just low keyed. They don’t like the way the country is being run, where they were when Bush ran this country in the ground.

    Like many people did, I watched the presidential debate. At first I wondered why president Obama was so subdued and not combative, then I came to the conclusion that Mr. Romney flip flopped again and became a Democrat at least for that debate. He is the one who out sourced jobs in the past and now he loves JOBS. He is the one who wanted to fire teachers, fire fighters and policemen, now he denies that and loves all of them. He is the one who wanted to people with pre-existing medical problems to fend for them selves, now he loves them. He is the one who said on "Meet The Press" that he will keep a lot of Obama's Health Care, then forty eight hours later he said he will totally repeal it. This is the one who said let the Auto industry go broke ( Thinking like a Bain Capital CEO) then he can swoop in and cash his profits. He is the won who dismissed and insulted 47% of the American people accusing them of not taking care of their responsibilities and depending on the Government to take care of them, and now he wants to be a president to all Americans. To those who are planning to vote for Mitt Romney ask your selves Which Romney are you voting for?
    As I see it, President Obama and the Democrats should thank Mitt Romney for him endorsing the President's vision for the future of our country.

      Would you run your home finances the way this country has been operated? If half of your kids worked and made a paycheck, would you take a good portion of it away and give it to the other kids who don't have a job? Would you take some of that same kid money and buy the non-working kids cell phones? Would you empty your bank account and then proceed to max out all of your credit cards? When you are in a hole, you need to stop digging. If this country continues with the negative revenues, then there will eventually be nothing left for anyone. I'd rather have a reduced pension than none at all.

    And Clinton was impeached for coverup around Whitewater and his girlly problems.

If you actually watched HIS campaign and not the clouded version in the news, he has been very consistant. CNN, MSNC, NBC, etc are the ones making you people think he is changing his mind. Romney is a guy that is a great human being, with a great family, and has lived a clean and fantastic life, and done more good in the world than everyone on this blog combined. We ought to just say thank you for being willing to take on the incredible task of being our President, and vote for him. The next 2 debates will prove out what I say.

If you express your opinion to a wide enough audience, you're going to get someone show disagrees in the extreme and may be vulgar in expressing their dissent.

    And then she says that her biggest problem with the country is that we're not united. Of course not! Some of us think, others are lemmings. She wants to be a lemming. Good for her. But I'm not going over the cliff just because she is.

      C'mon Sister, you are ignoring a few facts. One: there aren't enough black people voting to have gotten President Obama elected on their own–It was the larger number of white people that cast votes for him that put him in the White House. Two: Thousands of white people in blue uniforms gave their lives in the Civil war that resulted in the elimination of slavery. Three: Obama is half white and was raised by white people; he puts on a good show, but inside he is nearly pure white. In summary, lots of white (and half-white) people have done and still do plenty of good for black people and don't deserve the hate that you are spewing in their direction. Surely you don't hate Obama's whiteness do you?? It's inside him, there's no denying it.

    Funny, but in my country, the USA, people are free to think for themselves and voice their opinion, if they choose to do so. I really don't understand the problem with this seemingly simple tweet in support of a presidential candidate. What's the problem? Oh, but this is America! This is a black woman voicing an opinion against a sitting president who is black! How outrageous can you get? (If this young woman was white, what would the reaction be, and why the difference, and what does that say about those voicing this reaction?)

      Does this mean any woman who didn't support Hillary Clinton against Obama in 2008 was somehow not pro woman? Does this mean men who didn't vote for a man, Obama in 2008 was anti male? I vote for the person not the party. I vote for the person whom I believe has the skills to make this a productive country with his/her leadership.

      How many people voted for Obama in 2008 simply because he was black and they figured they would give him a chance? So now if they don't believe he has lived up to all the hype from 2008, why shouldn't they NOT vote for him? The fact that unemployment for blacks is well over 20% is a real concern.

        I voted for Obama because I thought & still think that he was the best person for the job...not because he was a man or what color he was(by the way he could have been silver,white or striped).And if you think the unemployment numbers are high for blacks,they would easily double under the policies of Romney/Ryan.And just so you know I'm a unemployed black veteran(I think I would know more about that subject than you...I live it each & every day!!!!

    Wow...her only hit movie was as a co-star in the movie Clueless. She wasn't even the star. Anyways, she's still one of the most beautiful people around, its a shame her career hasn't taken off.

    We vote for whom we think is the best candidate from our own personal point of view. If she chooses Mitt Romney, she has a right to do so, and people should respect that. It is interesting that people consider themselves respectful towards others, but their words and actions say otherwise.

    Blacks hating whites for their color of their skin is just as racist as whites hating blacks. For me, I have no issue with Obama's race and I never will. I Stacy Dash actually quoted Dr. Martin Luther King in saying "I judge him by his character not by the color of his skin." Dr. King was right when he said that. I wish it were true for all mankind that people saw one another that way. The fact is we live in a broken and imperfect world and this lifelong problem may never be solved regardless of who is our president.

    This is America and we have the right to vote for whom ever we please, she has that right. I'm an African American and I'm voting Republican. I did in 2008 and I will in 2012. Why, because the "party" stands for what I as an American believe and stand for, so if the canidate is white or black or hispanic for the Republican party then I will vote for that canidate. This is about the party not the person, the person is representing the party. Take time to research both parties, then you decide which party you feel best to support. It's just that simple.

      As a life-long independent voter, I can assure you I have followed this election as closely as anyone I know. I am fully informed – seeing the flaws and dings of each ticket.

      With that said, my ballot (which has already been cast) was and is a no-brainer. As I've stated during the campaign, Messrs. Romney and Ryan have no business on a White House tour – let alone actually occupying it.

      Each person has a right to cast a ballot for whomever they wish. Sad how so many voters will attempt to put the Fraudulent Duo in the Presidency/Vice Presidency.

    I think Stacey Dash should vote for whoever for whatever reason. The truth is, the country is in bad shape, but only because the President "IS NOT" getting the support from republicans, most likely because he is a black man. From the 1st day President Obama took office, the republicans loudly spoke to vote against him and they will make him a one term president. The phase, "TAKE BACK WHITE HOUSE" was born. Common sense should tell anyone, the President could not make the mess, that the country is in. Now, the country is in a down spin, there is no way the president is to blame. If you can see throught the craziness, the lies and what they represent, you couldn't vote for them. They are not for the middle class, it all. Stacey is not middle class.

    Ms. Dash is very naive and uniformed to believe that the Romney-Ryan Platform will unite the nation and improve the economy.

    Politics determines who gets what, when, where, and how. Our nation will never be 100% united because the greed of a few will prevent it. However, the masses of people can be united only when they understand that there interests will not be secured by candidates that secure the interests of the greedy few. Romney-Ryan represent the interests of the greedy few. The greedy few say "let them eat cake" and fend for themselves.

    The Obama-Biden Administration have sown good seeds for the prosperity of our nation. The harvests are already being reaped and more harvests will be reaped in the future.

    Our economic condition is the result of failed domestic and foreign policy sown during previous presidential administrations and congresses including the Reagan Administration.

    One word of advice. Don't vote for candidates that secure the interests of the greedy few. The only jobs that they will create will be service related and won't include a living wage.

    Dear Stacey Dash,

    You're still fine...gorgeous (and, correct me if I'm wrong...but it's all real. no surgery).

    BUT, I'm confused as to how you can support Romney...with ALL the access you have to objective statistics concerning the country. You don't seem like you're all beauty and no-brains. You're still relevant, so you MUST be smart and savvy to some degree. So why Romney? Does he provide you the promise of STAYING rich? Makes sense in that regard. But as for the rest of us NON-celebs who aren't set-for-life....are you thinking in terms of us? I don't know... I'm not assuming anything about your position and support for Romney. I'm just wondering...'what the heck are you thinking?" that's all.

    Wow, I'm reading a lot of these posts by apparently black Americans, and it is sad to see racism is still thriving. Apparently, many blacks feel Stacey is selling out or being a female Uncle Tom by voting for Mitt Romney, insinuating that she should be voting for Obama because she is black...

    Can you imagine if a white celebrity were to publicly say they are voting for Romney because he is white? The outrage! Well, Samuel Jackson and JayZ have done that! They both said they are voting for Obama because he is black. And apparently, based on these comments, it seems that the majority of the black community feels the same way.

    With all the cries of racism by blacks against whites, understand that the majority of whites voted for Obama (which is why Obama won the election) and if he wins again this time, it will be by the white majority. However, ONE BLACK WOMAN votes Romney and the beating she is taking from the black community shows that things have gone full circle... now it is the blacks that are more racist than whites. Justified or not – that doesn't change the actual result... apparently from what I'm seeing here, blacks are more racist than whites.

    I had not heard of Ms. Dash prior to posting. As such, I cannot speak to her popularity or credibility as an actor.

    I can, however, feel badly for her – and all the other supporters of Messrs. Romney & Ryan. Whether these followers are driven by racism, rage, or ignorance of fact, one cannot hope to have a shred of optimism if the Romney/Ryan ticket prevails in November.

    As a life-long independent voter who has not missed an election since eligibility came to me as youth, I cannot get my brain around the concept of selecting Romney over Obama. The choice is clear, if only acknowledging the obvious arrogance, elitism and chameleon-like persona of Candidate Romney.How Ms. Dash can say the candidate and his spouse "spoke to her" is a sad testament to her values and objectivity.

    There is no legitimate argument against a simple fact that a Romney presidency will set the general populous in a horrible place. Women will be thrust back to the 1950s or earlier. The dismantling of our lower and middle class structure will be destroyed.

    Candidate Romney, and his running mate, are so transparent in their practice of violating the "Thou Shalt Not Bear False Witness" commandment. How? By opening their mouths and uttering words against the President and his Administration. They speak not one word of truth in there oral spewings.

    No, the presidency for Candidate Romney is all about ego and power. The vice presidency for Candidate Ryan is a stepping stone to the presidency – for the same 2 reasons.

    How very pitiful so many in our country will cut off their noses to spite their faces.

  110. The Tragic Mullatto(Stacey Dash)

    I agree with those who assert that Stacey Dash has a right to support whomever she wishes. But there a distrubing pattern here. So many people often speak about the sad condition of this country. But for atleast 8 years, we prosecuted two wars at a cost of billions of dollars per month. The Republicans ran up an astounding defecit under Bush. And somehow everyone expects issues that truly began in the past several presidential admininistrations to diminish in four years under Obama.

    Stacey's issue is bigger than Mitt Romney or the economy(for which she and Mitt Romney are both benefitting from). She has never married an African American(her option but it is curious) although she has married several white men and star in shows and sitcoms focused on popular African American culture. So Black people feel let down that she can rise to stardom by exploiting their culture. yet encourage us to vote for a man who was for abortion before he was against, for discrimination against 47% of the country before he was against, for universal healthcare before he was against it. Just my two cents worth.

      It is not shocking that most actresses and actors support a president canidate who wants to tax people making over a million dollars a year very little. However i know of Stacy Dash and her movies/tv she is barely hitting that figure because she is a bad actress. i rather here an opinion of the average working class people then her. Again, she could have kept her voting choice to her self and focus more on her failing career. If she don't focus on her sadly failing career, she will need Obama when she is asking people " do you want fries with that?

    First of all, don't know her, don't care what her opinion is about anything. Second, no matter how bad the economy is, any reasonably well known person of color has a career waiting for them as a shill for the Republican Party. Second, the only reason this is a news story is because she is a member of the 0% of blacks that support Romney. I wonder if this has anything to do with the fact that statistically speaking the United States is more polarized than at any other time since the Civil War.

    What baffles me more than anything is how a Woman could actually vote for a Conservative.
    -They were against the Woman's right to Vote
    -They are against a Woman's right to choose.
    -They are against Equal Pay for Women
    -They tried blocking Violence Against Women Act

    A woman voting for a Republican is like asking a Fox to look after you and your chicks.

    This chick could not have thought that her supporting Romney wouldn't launch her into national recognition....I mean, really. And the mere fact that she went on Morgan's show, is all the proof we need..

    I have no problem whatsoever with Stacey voting for Romney...but I do take issue with her trying to convince us that she didnt see the vitriol coming her way....especially, from the black community. Many of whom, have a very difficult time accepting that she's half black...so, of course, she's gonna be called a sell out and an "Aunt Tom"

    if she didnt anticipate reading posts like that, she's as dumb a a bag of hammers. And I really dont think she is. She knew EXACTLY what she was doing, in light of being fired from "Single Ladies"

    hey, she needs a job just like a lot of people out here, right?..and what excludes her from being as desperate as the rest of those looking for work?

    I agree with stacey Dash. According tti my reasearch Romney hasnt lied but Obama has. Drilling & production of oil . Gas price not effecting thr economy heck thats the reason the economy is bad now. Check and see evertime the fuel gose up the economy gose down and companies reduce jobs.

    Now I remember where I saw Stacy Dash at before. She gave an interview in which she said ,she had the bad habit of jupming into bed with guys on their first date and had to break that habit. So why would anyone care who she supports in the upcoming election? Ho!

    Could Dash really be that stupid or is he looking for 15 minutes of television? He is an embarrassment to the Senate and the state of Tennessee. A subject of ridicule. Sic em him Jon Stewart.
