Alec Baldwin had some harsh words to say about GOP candidate Mitt Romney during an appearance on Lawrence O'Donnell's MSNBC program Tuesday night.

Baldwin, who stuck around to talk politics for two segments, said that things for the GOP were "not going so well." He added, "These guys are getting scared. They know that it's not looking good for them. And I think they're sensing now that they're really going to focus on the congressional races and Obama - it's starting to look like he has it in the bag."

He later called Romney "a real blue blood money guy; a rich guy; a country club guy," and compared these characteristics to President George H.W. Bush. "The old Bush scenario where he couldn't tell people how much half-a-gallon of milk was," Baldwin said.

He added, "Romney is as out of touch with the average American as we coud possibly find on the meter today. In terms of being in touch with the average American, we'd be better off with Gingrich than we would with Romney—in terms of his personal wealth and his attitude about lifestyle and such."

Watch Baldwin's take on Romney and the presidential race in the video above. Baldwin also stole O'Donnell's hosting chair throughout the show, teasing upcoming segments before commercial breaks.
