A black actress has strayed from the Hollywood herd and is supporting Romney. She's facing some nasty backlash as a result.

Oh sure she is. You are not EVER supposed to do that at all.
Keep an eye peeled and watch the viciousness.
Some people were mean on Twitter? That doesn't sound like a widespread liberal backlash to me. It sounds like a few jerks on twitter who need to be added to her blocking filter.
Not sure if it is true or not, but I read that over 50,000 responses trashing her, many using very vulgar language. I even saw another group going on about how they will rise up and have riot in the streets if Romney wins.
There are lot of blowhard idiots on Twitter and other anonymous online networks. I doubt most of them would leave their mother's basement to cross the street, let alone riot.
I read that number, too. Some that are especially nasty are telling Dash to kill herself.
OT, but can you believe she's 46?? Wow - she looks awesome!
I didn't say "widespread." I said "some nasty backlash." Suggesting that a person go kill herself is pretty nasty, IMO.
She is very beautiful and is entitled to her opinion. I think she is only getting this in the news b/c she is an actress. I can assure you that many blacks are convinced of what Obama has accomplished. Obviously the majority of white voters did not vote for McCain in 2008. It's just the media trying to stir up some nonsense similar to us caring about Lindsey Lohan's daily driving. People have the right to vote for whom they choose (freedom). And most would not disagree that the last debate was won easily by Romney.
I agree - all registered voters have the right to choose and support their candidate of choice, without fear of being ostracized/rebuked/reproved/criticized. I understand why some people wish to keep their vote private.
Ms. Dash has the right to vote for whom she wants! I just do not understand some of the distractors. They need to grow up! I applaud her choice although I do not agree with her!
These kind of attacks come from both sides. People just need to vote their mind and pay no attention to these crazy Democrats and Republicans!

Romney is intent on painting Obama supporters as poor and lazy what he forgot is that liberal households are on average wealthier than conservative households by a whole 6%. The error highlights conservative thinking, conservative voters vote for themselves and those close to them, thus Romney...

Have you seen this ad in support of Obama? It shows senior citizens threatening to punch Romney and burn down the country if Obama loses. They don't say "country," though - they say "MFer." Is this okay with you? If the right came out with an ad that threatened violence against...

I can only surmise he's setting us up for a super duper vetting job by the Romney campaign on whoever they're going to announce as his VEEP.But seriously.Why is Dick Cheney getting airtime in 2012 talking about the mistake John McCain made in 2008 choosing Sarah Palin? That she wasn't ready.Tell us...

One of the best part of Michelle Obama speech was that it had none of the nastiness that often contaminates politics. She didn't insult Mitt or engage in petty politics. She just spoke from the heart with grace humility and class. Proud moment to be an American when you hear a speech like...
