Barkley, who has said he’s a Republican has appeared to change his mind. Charles, according to Catalina Camia endorsed President Obama in the 2008 presidential election, and was seen at the Democratic convention in Denver four years ago.
Charles had this to say about Mitt Romney running:
“We’re going to beat you like a drum in November,” said Barkley, now an analyst with TNT. “Don’t take it personally. I like you. You seem like a nice guy … but you’re going down, bro.”
Romney was at the playoff game between the Boston Celtics and the Atlanta Hawks with his wife Ann, was shown in the crowd at the Boston Garden during a broadcast on TNT.
Barkley, who changed up his allegiance from the Republican to Democratic party, is no stranger to political commentary. In December, he bashed the GOP presidential field, calling the potential nominees “idiots” who unfairly criticize President Obama.
