Tim Allen: I'm What They Call 'Fiscal Conservative'
Hollywood star and world-famous comedian Tim Allen explained to Sean Hannity tonight how he compares to Mike Baxter, his conservative character on the hit show "Last Man Standing."
"I’m what they call 'fiscal conservative,'" Allen said. "I like problem-solving. And problem-solving usually originates, from my family - there were nine kids and a single mom for a while - and a lot of it was, 'How are you going to pay for this?' My family is all about that. 'How you going to pay for that? Any idea?'"
Allen said there's a lot of himself in Mike Baxter, and he and the writing staff of "Last Man Standing" designed the character to be "a very smart Archie Bunker."
Allen added that he has received negative notes from network executives about his character going too far, such as calling President Obama a communist.
"I do push the button a little bit too hard sometimes," he acknowledged.
