"Some complain on Twitter about Obama."

So began Alec Baldwin in a Tuesday Twitter rant about the 2012 presidential election, in which it's safe to say he will not be voting for Mitt Romney.

Baldwin referred to Romney, President Obama's likely opponent, as "a corporate puppet" whose election would mean a return to "lying thieves in the White House who make war under false pretenses in order to make $ for their friends."

Alec asked, "You wanna go back? To Bush? Cheney? Paulson? Rumsfeld? Unfunded wars? Death of US soldiers and innocent civilians for oil?"

Baldwin criticized Mitt Romney's pro-business positions and said that the GOP will only "squander more US natural resources, revenue and perhaps lives."

Though he allowed that "America is competitive" and "there are winners and losers every day," he maintained that this alone doesn't solve problems.

"The America I love believes that all deserve some modicum of care and security," he said, ending his missive with a simple "Obama 2012."

If the election were held today, for whom would you vote?

The execution of Troy Davis last night drew widespread criticism, including from 30 Rock star Alec Baldwin, who did not hold back on Twitter today.

Never one to shy away from controversial subjects, Baldwin made sure that his disgust over the Georgia man's death was heard loud and clear.

Of Davis' execution, which occurred at 11.08 p.m. by lethal injection, despite a plea for clemency, "The anti-justice haters won tonight," Baldwin said.

The 53-year-old actor went on to make a stream of politically passionate comments that attracted both praise and criticism from Twitter followers.

He referred to the family of police officer Mark McPhail, who was gunned down rushing to the aid of a homeless man in a Burger King parking lot in 1989.

"Wonder if the MacPhail family will seek death penalty for US leaders who killed thousands of US soldiers and countless innocent Iraqis," tweeted Alec.

He then went on a Twitter rampage about his disgust in the execution of 42-year-old Davis, which was based on questionable eyewitness evidence.

Kelsey Grammer can scarcely keep his own house in order. But the actor still thinks he'd make a good politician, admitting to The New York Post that he possesses the "narcissistic personality" necessary for that world and would consider a run for Mayor of NYC.

"I have a great career and extraordinary opportunities," the Grammer said.  "But I look at my political aspirations as that last piece of my life, where I hope to do something good for people and pay back a little."

Grammer is a known Republican, while Alec Baldwin - an outspoken Democrat - has shared a similar sentiment. Can you imagine a general election between these two? Who would you rather... elect?

30 Rock star Alec Baldwin has long mused about running for political office, but some of his recent Tweets have stoked more speculation than ever.

Earlier this week, Baldwin wrote that it's still "a long way till November of 2013" and then posted a link to the iconic song "New York, New York."

Interestingly, Baldwin just wrote an essay for The Huffington Post that was sympathetic to the plight of embattled U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner.

Alec Baldwin For Mayor!

Weiner represents Brooklyn and Queens in the U.S. House, but has openly coveted the NYC mayoral post and was all but certain to run in 2013.

His rampant crotch-shot texting likely slammed the door on that lifelong political aspiration - but did it open one for Alec Baldwin in the process?

It certainly could happen. The actor owns an apartment on Central Park West, though his primary residence is in the Hamptons on Long Island.

He has flirted with running for Congress from his Suffolk County district, but this is the first time his name has been tied to the mayor's office.

Baldwin is a registered Democrat whose political views are the polar opposite of his 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy, a Reagan-loving elitist.

What do you think? Should Alec run for mayor?
