Former basketball superstar and now commentator Charles Barkley had some choice words for Mitt Romney yesterday as the camera zoomed in on Romney who was attending the Boston Celtics and Atlanta Hawks NBA playoff game.

"We're going to beat you like a drum in November," Barkley said as the camera cut to the former Massachusetts governor. "Don't take it personally. You seem like a nice guy, but you're going down, bro."

Charles Barkley being Charles Barkley though he also gave his less than flattering assessment of a Celtics fan, saying he looked like a "fag" and implored him not to have any children.
