"Tweet to Mitt Romney, I once had a great deal of respect for you and many of ur stances. You believed like Teddy Kennedy in healthcare and a woman's right to choose and u seemed to actually care about ur people," Goldberg's screed began. "That was the man I said was someone worth voting for."

The message continues, "Well Mr Romney the man I was talking about turned into a man who flushed his ideals down the drain only to emerge a confused candidate, confused about what he really stands for and WHO he stands for and adapted [sic} a group who stands on the steps of Congress and spits on lawmakers without care for whom it's affecting, names a health care system Obama care, care that you Yourself adopted for mass. And then pretended it was Obamas idea, your [sic] a man who sheds ideas faster than a snake sheds skin."

Goldberg's venomous attack on Romney came shortly after a videotape of the candidate calling Goldberg and her "View" cohorts "sharp-tongued" appeared on the internet.

The "Sister Act" star went on to theorize that Romney's "desperation to be Presedent [sic] made u forget your ideals."

She also negatively compared the current candidate to his father, former Michigan governor George Romney, a moderate Republican and supporter of the civil rights movement.

"I thought you were more like ur dad & then u opened ur mouth & I realized u were nothing like him," Goldberg added.

If he chooses to do so, Romney can address Goldberg's jeremiad next month, when he will appear on "The View."

He probably shouldn't count on Goldberg's tongue getting any duller between now and then, though.
