Roseanne Barr Seeking President For 99 Percent

Roseanne Barr Seeking President For 99 Percent

If Donald Trump and the Republican field have not already made the 2012 Presidential election feel like a circus for some Americans, they will likely change their minds with the announcement that a new candidate is seeking nomination via the Green Party: Roseanne Barr.

Though the television personality probably will gain little traction in the race, she says she is running for the 99 percent, according to The Daily Mail.

“The Democrats and Republicans have proven that they are servants – bought and paid for by the 1 per cent – who are not doing what’s in the best interest of the American people,” Barr said.

Barr is best known for her portrayal as a wise-cracking, blue collar mom on the television show “Roseanne” in the late 1980s and early 1990s. She currently operates a 46-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.

“I will barnstorm American living rooms,” Barr explained in a candidate questionnaire submitted as part of her Green Party application package obtained by The Associated Press. “Mainstream media will be unable to ignore me, but more importantly they will be unable to overlook the needs of average Americans in the run-up to the 2012 election.”

The Green Party’s presidential nominee will be selected at a convention in Baltimore in July.

    1. Hasn’t this weirdo admitted on main stream television she is a socialist?
    2. Hasn’t the clintons and the present obozo helped prove America does not want a socialist society?
    3. Who in the hell would vote for this roseanne barr anyhow? Not Me!

    • David in MA

      BTW, she does not look healthy, is there something medically wrond wiyh her? Besides being whacko?

      • David in MA

        ” She currently operates a 46-acre macadamia nut farm in Hawaii.”

        How approperate!
        Macadamia nuts have no nutritional value as for as I know, just like roseanne barr, no FN value!

        • NC

          David in MA,someday you may get to visit her #1.7 million nut farm in Hawaii and tell her just how dumb she is! Be sure to remember that she left home as a teenager and made her own fortune.Not bad for a Jewish Mormon runaway!

          • nvsandy

            Just so people won’t misconstrue the facts…Rosanne was never a Mormon, she only attended the church for ten years, she was never baptised. She was around Mormons because she and her family lived in Utah.

          • Moosedrool

            She is also a member of the 1% she says she is against. Hypocrite as are all the elite.
            David in MA, macadamia nuts are very good for you and macadamia nut oil is too. It is just too expensive for most of us to buy.

          • http://WeThePeople Jean

            So glad that I hate macadamia nuts

    • Fed-up

      You are right on all counts. She is a socialist and a nut case all rolled into one.

    • http://comcast the fisherman

      Idiots for for idiots. now you have four of them running for the gold. What a lovely bunch of coconuts ,

  • s c

    While that woman would probably make a better VP than Motormouth Biden, all that would do is force a prez to find ways to stay healthy so Roseanne would never get ‘promoted.’ Like most other utopians, Roseanne thinks being qualified for high office is no different than wanting it. It’s called linear thinking, and it properly defines the typical LOSERS we send to Washington.
    Keep your day job, Roseanne. Hang on to your sense of humor (and FORGET ever getting a recording contract). Being around Congress for a month and being exposed to too much power and a whored-out media is more than any mortal can stand. In the event that someone thinks Washington’s many temptations can be avoided or kept at a distance, look at what it’s done to Obummer.
    He started out as just another utopian. Now he’s on his way to being America’s first Emperor. And some of his stormtrooper robots thinks that’s a SWELL idea.

  • eddie47d

    She is making an attempt to run for President but few are jumping on her bandwagon. I’m on a petition site and 20 states(individuals) had a petition to get her on the ballot. Only 10-15 people signed from each state so few are taking her serious at this time. Besides she can’t sing and her voice grates on me. Anyway it seems to be more of a lark rather than a serious attempt for her.

    • http://WeThePeople Jean

      Oh – another Paul Peterson?

  • Disgusted

    Unbelievable how far we have sunk! Is is any wonder we are becoming the laughing stock of the world with this crap going on.

  • Red Sam Rackham

    Rosanne Barr?!?!?!? I don’t think so! Daniel Lawrence Whitney (aka Larry The Cable Guy) is my kind of alternative prez candidate. Now that’d be the kind of prez who could GIT R DONE!!!

    • Vexed Vet

      A men brother! Larry has more common sence as all of Washington! Washington is way more funny however.

      I’d love to see a leader who would make Get Over it by the Eagles our second national anthem and git ‘er done the rule of all for all the parisites world wide sucking the money out of our working few!

  • Vexed Vet

    America will not survive unless we can round these freedom hater dip s….. up and send them where they can learn to appreciate the right they have pt make asses out of themselves. Note Black Panther Cleaver had a different view of America after he saw the commie utopia that was Cuba.

    These spoiled idiots live in the greatest, freeist country in the world and want to enslave everyone else thinking they will be on top of the heap.

    They have no idea that they will be in the same gulag everyone else is. Stalin knew what who they are when he called them USEFUL IDIOTS!

  • Sirian

    RB is about as big a threat politically as Pat Paulsen back in ’68 – go figure. If this idiot isn’t a walking joke I don’t know what is. . .

  • nvsandy

    Roseanne Barr isn’t one of the couch politicians that sit at the comoputer putting people down and putting their useless thoughts out there for everyone to see and shake their heads at.
    Roseanne has always done what she set her mind to do no matter what ANYONE said or thought about it. I give her all the credit in the world for that.
    Roseanne doesn’t give a crap what anyone else does, says or thinks. She made her life her own. As far as being on the ballot for any political position, anyone and everyone has that right, doesn’t mean she’ll be elected…in fact I can guarentee that she will NOT. But at least she goes after what she belives in.
    Roseanne a nutcase? Yes, but one that has lived life her way…how many can say that?

    • AngryPickle

      I try to live my life the way I envision it myself but I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself by getting up on a podium declaring myself a formidable challenger, unless of course it could somehow get me back with my own TV sit-com. You bet she’s got a mind of her own (just ask her ex) but when it comes to involving the entire nation with her ambitions, I say, “Back off girl!”..

      In another sense, try this: Barr/Ventura.. Now THAT should cover our demise very well.. I would have said ‘Schwarzenegger’ but that would just open up an old (legal) scar that Pubs still can’t prove (or at least get up off their collective asses and file for impeachment for their voters sake whether they lose it or not) after all, they did just that under one (count’um) ONE complaint of sexual improprieties in Clinton’s reign.

  • AK Tom

    She could steal some votes from obama.

    • Marlene

      If she steals even 15 votes from Obama, she’ll also be srealing 15 votes from any viable candidate. Let’s hope she doesn’t get even one to muddy the election.

  • Charles

    “In my Opinion”(legal term to CYA) She is a loud mouth anal orfice with no common sense of how life works and can not tell the difference between right and wrong. Maybe she should be down with the poor folks picking s_ _ _ with the chickens and get a real taste of what it is like to be poor.

  • Lana


  • 45caliber

    I doubt if she would be any worse than what we have now. But then, I don’t think anyone could do much worse.

  • http://BenCrystal Gottaplenty

    Do you not know who the green party is or don’t you care . It isn’t a garden party, its the American Communist party in a green cloak. And another thing to watch for in the green is the Islam nations flags are their mark,, green ….wake up…

  • One Mad Woman

    Pure stupidity – doesn’t she realize she probably has more money than the 1%? What an idiot – can’t stand her & her big mouth.

  • Rebecca

    If her rendition of the National Anthem is any indication of how she feels about America and our freedom then we don’t want her holding the red phone.

  • ranger hall

    WELL folks how did she make her money,,??? Just look at yourself.

    Another NUT in the running will not make any differance.At lest she made Money being a Nut. She just jumps on any Bandwagon coming along, And it gets her PUBLIC NOTICE.

    On second thought,,Could she DO ANY WORST.

    • AngryPickle

      Yes she could.. As most whiners nag about Ron Paul’s unrealistic foreign policies, just imagine what this squid would do with it.. On second thought, don’t as I wouldn’t want it to totally ruin your whole day.

      In reality, we all should realize this is nothing more than a Rosanne Barr acting interview of a different nature, but I fear there will be quite a few couch potatoes who (ordinarily sit at home on election day, watching and bitching about the coverage interfering with their reality shows) would give up one of their soaps in order to vote just be part of the comedic skit..

      • s c

        Dill, your brine is too ‘acidic.’ Get it checked. If you had taken the time to DEFINE “most,” your comment might have come close to being relevant.
        As is the case with “most” utopians, you’ve just put both feet into your mouth [Biden-style]. WHY waste your time and space on this website if you can’t see that Barr and Paul are far less than apples and oranges? Go back to bed, comrade. You got out of bed before those pills took effect.

  • http://Comcast JimBob

    That blob is part of the 99 percent like I’m part of the one percent. She has money coming out of her ears…I don’t. I hope her fat ass sinks the green party boat…

  • chuckb

    who do we blame for these whacko’s, just look around, the viewing audience made these people what they are, that includes barry soetoro.
    this is the handy work of the media, we need to blame no one except those whop watch these nut cases and vote for people thinking we are righting a wrong.
    the banking community is having a field day along with the oil industry, they are making more money than they thought possible so guess what, leaving barry in power will be perfectly satisfactory with them. roseanne barr is no danger, however, she can draw some of the nuts out of the weeds that may have voted for romney.
    the republican party has assisted romney in making this election process a joke with the negative media blitz and the ignorant people that fall for it in their effort to destroy gingrich.

    • Adollarsworkapeenyspay

      Gingrich was a walking disaster at the get-go.. His past would have been revealed to the hilt by Obama which would definitely assured a Dem re-election.. At least Romney has a few aspects suitable for the job although I think Ron Paul is our only true hope as Romney has a few negative points under his belt that many will see as a hidden big business agenda.. Imagine for instance, the giddiness Romney might express in firing all middle class workers then block unemployment and close down all welfare for the needy in order to expand military war machines and bigger government.. What a scenario (that could happen) and if you think it couldn’t, then you know absolutely NOTHING about right wing capitalism..

  • Marlene

    Roseann (URP!) Barr is no threat to anyone unless it’s herself. Her disgusting mouth is definitely her downfall. The people who put this country in the situation it’s in are the ‘foaming at the mouth’ jackals called the mainstream media. They’re wherever you turn on the TV – Chris Mathews, Matt Lauer Katy Couric, Brian Williams, and many others too many to list here and the latest opinionated jackal that shouldn’t be allowed to voice any opinions about this country, Piers Morgan – he should return to England where his Socialistic outlooks might be appreciated. We don’t need foreigners spouting news or any opinions on our politics. Then there are the ‘entertainment’ types – David Letterman, Bill Maher, Joy Behar Whoopi Goldberg, Rosie O’Donnell, the list of disgusting TV mouths is almost unending. They are basically reponsible for every ill in this country becuase that’s what they promote. Is it a game with them? They just might be the ones who are in charge of manipulating Obama’s strings. It certainly wouldn’t surprise me. I’ve stopped watching them and turn away from all news programs the minute the local news is over.

  • WickedPickle

    Gimme a friggin’ break!! How can you express disgust by grabbing you’re crotch on a forum that has no video?.. THAT’S how disgusted I am.. All this broad is going to accomplish is to take away a certain amount of legitimate votes that would ordinarily go to their actual choice.. Whatta circus this crappy election is evolving into.. Anybody got a spoon?

  • AnneOnymous

    First a ‘B’ movie actor, now a controversial wanna-be (liberal) comedian?.. Boy! Do we have our work cut out for us THIS election.. (meanwhile, Ron Paul keeps gaining, yeah!)..

  • hitthedeck

    Rosy needs to stay on the Nut farm where she belongs. Her politics are in the same tune with her singing skills. She needs to invite the OWS crowd to occupy her nut farm. They can crake up together.

  • Donald

    It’s a free country. Any idiot can run.

  • Angel Wannabe

    Oh yeah I can see it all now as she’s sworn in as Prez, Instead of One hand on the bible she use the Rules for Radicals Handbook, Then she’ll grab her crotch with the other, and then spit on the ground__afterward she’ll screech out her rendition of The Star Spangled Banner.__Yeah that’s Great, I’m Pumped!__Good Grief!

  • jopa

    Nvsandy;You have stated that Roseanne Barr was never a Mormon that she only attended Mormon church for ten years.In order to even step into a Mormon church you have to be a Mormon.Mitt Romney’s wife’s parents are not Mormons and they were not allowed to attend the wedding because of that.
