Scott Baio "I Support Mitt Romney"

"I believe in Governor Romney for a lot of different reasons. I've met him many times and he's a straight up guy, he's a good guy, great family man [and] his kids are fantastic," Scott told Kit Hoover and Billy Bush on Access Hollywood Live. "I think we need to be fixed in this country."

Scott said being a Republican in typically-left-leaning Hollywood can be intimidating and he feels for actress Stacey Dash, who recently faced a barrage of mean-spirited comments after revealing she's voting for Romney.

"I don't think anybody should bash anybody for what they believe. I have my beliefs, you have yours," he said. "Just leave her alone, let her say what she wants to say. Freedom of speech."

Adding, "I don't know why they're beating [Stacey] up the way they are - I really don't."

Scott, a self-proclaimed "big Reagan guy," frequently engages in political discussions with Democrats on Twitter and said he doesn't understand why some people become so heated over a difference of opinion.

"I have conversations with people who don't see eye-to-eye with me all the time. I don't get in wars with them - I just say, 'Hey, it's what you believe. I still like you,'" he said. "I've got no problem with anybody."

The former "Charles in Charge" star has been actively involved in the Romney campaign and plans to continue to help out however he can.

"I've done a lot of stuff [for the Romney/Ryan campaign]," he said. "I've met [Gov. Romney] and I've given speeches for him and things like that, and donated some money. Whatever I can do.

I think Chachi is the one who needs to be "fixed."

Let the punishment fit the crime: Scott Baio is sentenced to appear throughout the second Obama term on a reality show paired up with Erin Moran.

He's a Republican, he's got a LOT of problems with a LOT of people.

[quote]he's a straight up guy, he's a good guy, great family man [and] his kids are fantastic,"

The same can be said about Obama. And Obama's not an unprincipled liar like phony Mormon Romney.

I support the appropriate end of his acting career years ago.

He's so racist he couldn't even hide it on his reality show. What a piece of shit.

by Anonymousreply 610/12/2012

Well, Scott Baio and Stacy Dash have spoken, so I'm totally voting for Romney now.

by Anonymousreply 710/12/2012

Well, Romney's got Stacy Dash (Clueless?), Lindsay Lohan (Shoeless) and Scott Baio (Screwloose). Trifecta!

Obama gets the rest of Hollywood.

Myopic turd.

R6, he's an "eye-tie" from Brooklyn. What do you expect?

What did he do/say on his show?

by Anonymousreply 1010/12/2012

Way too much time and space spent on which celebrities are voting for a Republican. They really don't deserve the attention. If people had just not pounced on the Stacey Dash endorsement, it wouldn't have even made national news. The racists comments towards Dash is what made it national news.

I take note and I move on. Don't care to go on their twitter page and insult. Why are people hyperactive?

Has "Cousin Larry" from Perfect Strangers endorsed anyone yet?

Romney ALSO has: Clinton Eastwood, Mel Gibson, Pat Boone, James Wood, Forest Whitaker, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and 99% of all Country Music Stars.

And because they're for Romney, they are all dumbass losers R15.

Scott ruined his reputation when he showed his ass on the reality show he did with his wife. We thought he was dim but sweet until he showed us that he's angry and petty and insecure and small. Pathetic little has been.

"Romney ALSO has: Clinton Eastwood, Mel Gibson, Pat Boone, James Wood, Forest Whitaker, Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and 99% of all Country Music Stars."

Considering that Eastwood, Gibson, Wood, Nugent, Boone and Kid Rock are all batshit crazy nonsense spewing bastards, Romney's in his element!

Has Gibson actually endorsed Romney? Not that it'd surprise me, but I hadn't heard about it. Actually it would surprise me because he's tried to be cagey about his conservatism, no matter how obvious it is. And a Romney endorsement would make it undeniable.

by Anonymousreply 2210/12/2012

Because Republican = bigot r21, and I don't like bigots in any walk of life.

Because they work in an industry that is constantly under attack from the very people they support.

Who's the nutjob that's been starting all these threads about D-list actors supporting Romney?

Can you just consolidate it all under one thread called Dumb Hollywood Nobodies Who Support Republicans?

by Anonymousreply 2710/12/2012

r17 is correct. He showed that he's of the old world Brooklyn gumba mentality. He's rather racist. He's probably as backwards about gays. He shot himself in the foot and needs to be left behind in a bygone era. Most people with his beliefs are old and dying off.

I hate when Republicans say "Hey, I'm entitled to my opinion!" as if they're making an opinion on which cheese they prefer with dinner.

These people are actively against us and wish to take whatever little rights we have away from us.

"Mitt Romney is a straight up guy with fantastic kids?!"

What the fuck does that matter when he has spent the last six years years running for president and lying to the American people? And when you can even get him to admit and stick with one position, it turns out to be bad policy for the country.

Lying and being a fraud and a phony doesn't make a 'straight up guy.'

by Anonymousreply 3410/12/2012

Sadly, he makes Erin Moran seem competent and lucid in comparison.

by Anonymousreply 3510/12/2012

I really hate this bull shit of "Romney is a good guy, he's a good father who loves his family". And Obama doesn't? In the minds of some freepers, he probably doesn't.

Lohan, Stacey Dash, Kid Rock, Chachi, Jon Voight, Ted Nugent. The caliber of celebrity who support the Republicans speaks for itself.

I tried to find something on Whitaker supporting Republicans and couldn't. Not saying that it can't be true but I'd like to see that substantiated before I write him off.

Whitaker is a Democrat.

Actually Mel hasn't endorsed any candidate. Can't just throw names in the list just to make it look bigger.

That's funny, I too had it in my head that Whitaker was a Republican. Or did something that tied him to them. Hmmm...

I remember Scott's shitty show. He couldn't hide his revulsion at the idea that his girlfriend might've slept with a black dude. And then his fatherhood coach (he'd knocked up his girlfriend who is a right wing nutjob too) turned out to be a black guy and he was actually amazed that the guy wasn't a hoodrat. What a dick.

Gindaloon trash from Brooklyn supports a Republican. Nothing new.

Didn't Baio also get called out for posting an offensive tweet or something about Michelle Obama? He's a loser and a prick. I never understood why he was considered hot.

Wow, you're right, R49.

Can't say I'm surprised. I grew up in the same neighborhood. The Italians were/are all racists. The current rep is a teabagger (Grimm). It's as red a district as you'll find in flyover.

Oh, I understood why he was considered hot, r49. He was still hot when he was guesting on Arrested Development, maybe hotter than ever. Evil people can be hot, stupid people can be hot, it happens all the time. If he wasn't such a moron and an asshole, he probably could've remained a successful actor instead of becoming a has-been so fast. His looks held up for decades.

Another has been no one cares about supporting Romney. I think this is the way they are getting their names in the paper. By the way, I am getting so irritated with the 'good family man' bit like he is unique. Obama and Biden are also good family men with great wives and children.

Why is saying your best friend is black, gay, insert the minority a sign you are NOT a racist? Just because his wife's friend is black does not mean he is not a racist, just that he tolerates his wife's best friend.

R52 is correct. Look at some of the 'teen idols' who have gone on to decent (and better) levels of success.

Scott isn't one of them, obviously .... but look at Jason Bateman, for example. And there's poor Scott with with his lame-ass reality show and some new shit-com on a sub-par tv channel.

It burns, I'm sure.

Guess now we know what Romney does with his campaign money: He buys endorsements from has beens. I wonder who he will buy at the end to speak in his favor: Barbara Streisand, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, or Barack Obama?

by Anonymousreply 6210/13/2012

So in other words Baio is a racist.

by Anonymousreply 6310/13/2012

Hey, Lindsay Lohan supports Mitt Romney, now we have Scott too all we need is the Kardhasians, who are republicans. Chris certainly is and I'm sure Kourtney is. Kim prolly hates Obama for calling Kanye "An asshole. But he is a talented asshole."

What we need is for Paris Hilton and her family to come forward, as well as the Kardashians, along with the RHONJ and that should really do what we need it to do for Romney. In fact Pairs & Lindsay hopping out of a cake on live TV would do it for sure.
