"Some complain on Twitter about Obama." So began Alec Baldwin's Tuesday afternoon tweets about the presidential campaign.

The actor and active Twitter user went on to write that electing Obama's opponent ("a corporate puppet") would mean a return to "lying thieves in the White House who make war under false pretenses in order to make $ for their friends." In an earlier tweet, he had mentioned George Bush, Dick Cheney, Hank Paulson and Donald Rumsfeld.

Baldwin criticized Mitt Romney's pro-business positions as damaging to the American public. Though he allowed that "America is competitive" and "there are winners and losers," he maintained that "the America I love believes that all deserve some modicum of care and security."

As for his own presidential aspirations? Baldwin didn't deny that he wanted to run, but said he believes the right wing of the Republican party would render him unelectable:


AB
I would run if I could win. Too many reactionary haters in the RW for that to be possible.
