Hawes made it clear earlier this year that he is not a supporter of noted basketball fan President Obama, or of the president's signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act. When the Supreme Court handed down its ruling that the healthcare reform legislation is constitutional in June, Hawes tweeted: “Ronald Reagan is spinning in his grave. We might as well be in Russia in 1983.”

He went on to refer to the Obama administration as communist in several tweets, and added:

The Romney campaign earlier this week announced a coalition of "Sportsmen for Romney" that included baseball Hall of Fame’s Wade Boggs and Olympic medalist Kim Rhode, but Hawes was not among them. Members of the Romney campaign re-tweeted Hawes’s tweet on Tuesday.
