Stacey Dash is apparently taking Mitt Romney’s loss in the U.S. presidential election to heart.
She is reportedly so “bummed” that she wrote what TMZ is calling a 1,344-word “rant” about Romney’s loss. In her statement, the “Clueless” star touches on Osama Bin Laden, her DNA, motherhood, and her frustration over being criticized for supporting Romney.
The highlights from Stacey’s rant include:
Like most Americans I was insulted with the idea that Obama was only elected because he was black, that people of color wanted one of their own, regardless of what sort of leader he would make. The same idiots make the argument that white guilt is why so many Americans voted Obama into office in the first place. That rhetoric is what helps divide this great nation.
I haven’t heard much from anyone (including the people heaping insults my way) about the great things Obama HAS done for our country, like repairing the infrastructure of our highways, bridges and train rails and creating a lot of jobs by this program. [...]
I also don’t understand why more people aren’t acknowledging the good that has come about thanks to Romney’s Massachusetts medical coverage for all citizens. In addition, Romney’s business acumen is sterling. Our country needs a savvy business manager with the ability to work on both sides of the aisle. Paul Ryan is another brilliant mind with a viable plan for the economy of this country. They’ve injected so much energy into the race. We need that ambition and focus to get our country back on its feet. [...]
In the event that Obama is re-elected I expect them to work a whole lot harder to bridge the divide between political parties, end the gridlock and get America back to work! Welfare reform is also in order. An elderly woman stands in the same grocery line pinching pennies to buy a can of soup while a woman is buying marshmallow fluff with food stamps. As times have changed, welfare policy needs to keep stride, just like every other issue.
The 46-year-old actress ended her essay on a positive note, somewhat throwing her support behind Obama. “I am hopeful that President Obama will lead us to becoming the great United States of America that thrives.”
