Cool Videos: Joss Whedon endorses Mitt Romney for one very specific reason

Oct. 29, 2012by: Alex Maidy

With just about a week until the Presidential election here in the States, the candidates are getting their final endorsements lined up for that final campaign push that will lead one to the White House and the other to wallow in failure.

There is no question that Hollywood tends to lean in a more liberal direction, but did you know that Joss Whedon has endorsed Mitt Romney for President? You heard right, folks. The director of THE AVENGERS and the creator of FIREFLY and BUFFY has thrown his support behind Romney for one specific reason.

The Zombie Apocalypse!

You have to admit, that was funny. Topical and zombie related, just in time for Halloween!

In all seriousness, elections are important. Regardless of where you live, you should vote. Make sure to voice your opinion because it truly does matter. Whether it is for a local candidate or national candidates, one of the great things about being in a democracy is having your voice heard. If you think yours won't impact who the next President will be, just realize that when you elect a local official or state Senator, that person may one day end up in the White House. And like Joss Whedon said, we need to be prepared for the worst, so stock up on canned goods!

You know what scares me more than a zombie apocolypse??? $16,036,498,499,000 trillion dollars of US debt.

Yeah, but hard to see how lower taxes and a bigger military budget will solve the debt. Obama is on the right way.

Also, Romney has affirmed more usage of fossil fuels - not really mitigating global warming.

It already happened. It's called liberalism.

If you don't see how obama's drones are the zombie apocalypse it's because you're already one of them.

VOTE ROMNEY! VOTE WITH YOUR OWN MIND! MAKE YOUR OWN CHOICE!

I'm surprised that you aren't calling for Gary Johnson for president. Romney's just the obvious alternative to Obama. Don't like Obama, vote Romney, right? How is voting for the un-Obama using your own mind?

And by the way, Obama absolutely has drones. They are those unmanned things that like to blow up weddings in Pakistan.

Obama added trillions in debt for this country...

And Romney intends to add even more via unnecessary military spending, cutting back on terrible programs (Planned Parenthood and PBS) that'll help reduce the deficit, and of course, continue to flip flop in order to guarantee a second term. This is just what Americans need.

Joss is Boss.

Please don't misunderstand me - because I mean no aggression whatsoever - but how is Romney even a viable candidate? How is a decision between him and Obama even debatable? Obama is a man in the truest sense: he does what he thinks is right and makes no apologies for it; he tries his best to take everyone into consideration; he is honest with the nation even if the news isn't going to be received well and he treats people with dignity when he speaks. Romney is not a man of character - he

Romney is not a man of character - he panders to finance and the powerful. He has no love in his heart, only desire. It will be his undoing, and ours if we decide to follow him. But goodness knows why we would.

Lets see Obama has no problem taking your tax dollars and investing them in failed companies. Solyndra for example. He also has no problem in letting our Ambassador in Libya be sodomized and murdered and telling the military to stand down when they wanted to go in to rescue . He has no problem giving guns to the mexican cartels, which not suprisingly, have been used in the murder of american citizens. He also has no problem using the weapons stockpiled from the fall of Kaddhafy to ship them

He also has no problem using the weapons stockpiled from the fall of Kaddhafy to ship them to Al Queda terrorists in Syria. He's singlehandedly destroyed whats left of this economy, shut down oil production significantly while at the same time giving billions of dollars to Petro Brasil so they can drill oil. He has apologized to every nation in the world for America being America. Obama has one interest in mind and that is destroying our country so it will become part of the world community. Thats what you are voting for when you vote for Obama. If thats what you want then A: your a disgrace to this country and B: by all means vote for Obama.

He went on an apology tour. He spent millions of dollars of American taxpayer's money so he could go all over the world and apologize for his country. It demonstrates how massively out of touch he is with reality when liberal BS governs any of his decision making. He apologized for America when there was no apology necessary.
He's bad with money and his ideas are just that. They're not plans. He has broad stroke stupid myopic ideas that don't make any sense and get laughed at.
He gave away

He gave away billions to his friends green energy companies just to see them go bankrupt, then he bailed them out, and then they went bankrupt anyway.
He's WEAK. China has made America it's bitch because Obama has no backbone.
Romney stated flat out if elected he'll declare China a currency manipulator and enact policies to even the economic playing field. Right now 2 billion people work for pennies 12+ hours a day. It's modern day slavery and additional to that China purposefully undervalues it's currency to compete with countries who are dirt poor and the wages those poor people have to work for. Obama has done nothing to even recognize it. Instead he stated 'the jobs in China are never coming back'. Great job half black man. You just conceded slavery is just a part of life. Nothing you can do. Golf clap for the guy voted in because he calls himself black.
Romney is a successful businessman with a backbone and more character under his fingernails than Obama has in his entire racially biased body.
Voting for Obama confirms you're a weak minded twit or a racist.

Spoken like a typical liberal. You arrogantly disregard the opposition and thumb your nose at anyone with a different opinion than you. And you manage to do all this while not once mentioning a single political issue, stance, strategy, accomplishment, or platform agenda item - it was nothing more than unmeasurable, emotional opinion statements... typical.

Let's see. Obama was elected with unreasonably high expectations during a time of historic crisis. He's black. Someone's got to run against him.

Also, four years ago the unthinkable happened. Some conservatives, utterly disillusioned, stayed home, and youth showed up in droves.

Personally, I believe Willard wants to think he's got America's interest at heart. Indeed, he might if elected (that would mean breaking a lot of promises). But believing he's the man for the job and actually being

Hey look at that. It's a joke, not a political debate on who we all are voting for. Aren't people getting tired of arguing the same points?

I know, right? People can't mention the name Obama or Romney without stale accusations and name-calling. It's pathetic.

Funny stuff...

If you took Joss's words to heart, you may take your political views a little too seriously... I recommend getting off this site immediately, and tuning in to The O'Reily Factor, or, if you're that oblivious to dead pan humor, The Daily Show... Joss is obviously kidding. Clearly he isn't endorsing Romney, but at no point is he endorsing Obama either. I think he's just trying to lighten the mood. For whatever reason, everyone is acting like the fate of the world hangs on this election.

For whatever reason, everyone is acting like the fate of the world hangs on this election. Liberals think if Romney wins that the entire middle to lower class is going to end up in the gutter. Conservatives think that if Obama wins, Socialism will rise up and the rich will be pulled from their mansions and beaten senseless like the Batman film. The truth is, we're probably screwed either way. It's a two party system, that's how it works... Just vote for who you think is the less of the two evils is... Or who you think is better equipped to lead us against the zombies.

Based on what Whedon said, he should vote for Gary Johnson and not Barack Obama. Nonetheless this was funny.

Did you fucking know that Romney's church forbids members from watching R-rated movies?
How fucking pathetic letting the non-spiritual MPAA determine which movies you can and can't watch.

Informed voting = responsible voting. If you barely even know who the candidates are do the country a favor and just stay home.
