Is actor and former “Saturday Night Live” cast member Rob Schneider a Romney supporter? Hmm, it’s still a bit cryptic. “Hating the system” is a bit “down with The Man” and Occupier-esque. However, he then retweeted this:

And then followed up with this!
Or maybe it is unrequited love. Punchline magazine published an interview with Rob Schneider in 2010, when he was mixing it up with some politics talk in his stand-up.
We’re not the same people we were a few years ago. I don’t think we’re the same people we were two years ago. Like, I don’t know who they thought Obama was, but that guy turned out to be a real disappointment in our leadership, and it’s not just his fault; the Republicans have tried to stop him at every turn. But at the same time, I don’t find Obama’s policies any different from Bush’s or Clinton’s. He’s the same guy, because at the end of the day, you can’t change this military industrial complex or this medical industrial complex, and you just think it’s unchangeable. I think it’s kinda sad, in that sense, and I don’t know who we thought he was. He kinda ends up being a little bit of a war-mongerer, like Kennedy, but we’re dumb because we voted for him. He said, “I want change!” but yeah, I didn’t realize it was minute change.
Unrequited love hurts! And last year, he tweeted this, which also had a touch of the old Occupier in it. Of course, it also could have been mocking Occupiers. It’s a conundrum!
Oh, yeah. He’s also vehemently anti-vaccine.
Sigh. Is he a Romney supporter, taking pages from fellow SNL-ers Jon Lovitz, Victoria Jackson and Republican Adam Sandler? He has railed against Big Government in the past. Or is he just disappointed that President Obama isn’t far Left enough? Which would clearly mean that he needs some help, stat!
We may soon find out. He’s begging to do an editorial piece at Huffington Post.
Update: Well, the tolerant Left seems to think he is totally off Team Obama.
Update: Schneider clarifies. Sorta.
