OMG ... a very privileged white man is calling two very privileged white men names?? Please. The most offensive part of this is that he says they "haven't done the work to be leaders"!! Wow. He couldn't be more wrong as he speaks from his stool in Hollywood where he does movies and protests and runs off his mouth. Now THAT'S work, huh?

Movies are job creators and yes, it is real work. Romney does nothing but offshore jobs-- he's a jobs destroyer.

actually martin sheen is not really white he is a latino who changed his name to seem more white to the Hollywood elite.

Race, while it sticks in the crawl of the right wing over who is in the white house and congress, isn't what you should focus on. Its really a class struggle between the rich and the rich special interests against the peasant working classes. The more aggressive among us are the rich and they want your lunch and feel entitled to it. That is what to focus on.

I am no fan of Romney and I WILL VOTE FOR OBAMA but, I resent celebrities throwing their two cents into the ring. I don't believe they are any smarter than the rest of us and those who are so easily influenced strike me as stupid. "I heard somewhere that Selena Gomez likes Obama so I do too. Go Obama!!" Give me a break.

Do you resent the celebrities throwing their two cents; or do you resent their ability to express themselves nationally and in the spot light.

In HP we are able to express ourselves and so should celebrities, but I don't that many people will actually be convincingly swayed by one celebrity or another, unless they make a valid and convincing argument. Though, whatever Sofia Vergara tells me to do, I will do it...twice.

Celebrities are people too. And Martin (who is actually Hispanic) has been a politically active citizen for a long time.

Enough already! This is nothing more than reverse racism for Sheen to assume that by being the color white everything that you earned was not deserved. Bottom line is Pres. Obama's legacy will not be one of leadership and certainly not one of an uniter. It is time to stop covering up for his negatives by using race as an excuse for his failings or using race as an excuse or reason for stating the obvious. We are witnessing a failed presidency that is gleefully being ignored by the pop culture pundits and media. No reason to continue to go after the messengers when the message is obvious.
09:12 PM on 10/03/2012
Oh stop it..Obama spent the first two years of his tenure as President trying to work with Republicans who rebuffed him at every turn. Obama's supporters were very upset with him for his continued effort to get Republicans to collaborate with him on our devastating economic condition. Race? Hell he is half white....There is no failed Presidency here. There is a failed Republican congress whose vanity and self indulgent pride would have them destroy this country rather than work with this 1/2 black democrat. You lost and there was not a man among Congressional Republicans who would man up and deal with the loss of the Presidency. Republicans have nominated the worst and last white guy standing in the Republican primary and he is the least adequate and most inept candidate to run for President in generations.

Well said anghiari. The sad thing is that the right wingers now believe they would have had a better chance with Newt or Rick. Ha. They would be even further behind. It's the message, not the messenger, regardless of how much a believer he is.

Can we please stop saying "reverse racism" when referring to racism against white people? It implies that white people invented racism. Also, I don't think he assumes that Romney and Ryan don't deserve what they have because they are white. He think they don't deserve what they have because they were handed it by obscenely rich parents and haven't got the tiniest concept of what actual work is.

This tape has been around a long time. But, as the election draws near, it is as good time as any to revive it. The fact that many, including Bush, declared that discrimination played a part in some of the distribution of services, like police, was unsettling for many around the country. When it was mentioned by Obama, it struck a nerve in the white community that did not translate to understanding and acceptance but denial and anger. And we are still there today. That is the sad state of our American conscience.

The problem with you democrats is that eventually you will run out of other people's money to spend. You care about the middle class and the poor . . . as long as someone else pays for it. How do you say democrat - Hand Out.

"You will run out of other prople's money to spend."

Sounds like you remembered the cons talking points.
10:24 PM on 10/03/2012
Did George Bush run out of Republican money when he was in office? ..... He must have because he left a massive debt for all Americans to pay.
08:51 PM on 10/03/2012
I doubt Martin Sheen would like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, etc. You know our founding fathers, because they unfortunately were "white, very, very over privileged" men as Martin said. It is predicted that whites will be a minority in twenty years in our country. At that time I hope the race card will not be used against minority whites that want to run for office. Anyway, it should always be about who is the best man/woman for an office and leave race out of it. Many whites voted for Obama last time and if some of us are no longer voting for him, that does not mean we are racist.
09:02 PM on 10/03/2012
Oh, give it a rest...first whites will never call themselves a minority though that may be factually true in the future...What in the hell is the race card? Holding slaves and treating them like animals for years is a reality and is probably the real and only RACE CARD that can be considerate legisitmate in this country...It is such a manipulative statement. No one said you were racist...they said your candidates were racist, because they are not above asserting the most repulsive racist lies, fullye expecting their supporters to believe it.. Obama is as white as he is black...but for some reason white folks of a certain racist bent never deal with that reality!
