I haven’t seen a speech like Clint Eastwood’s since Rick Perry’s in New Hampshire in October, when he rambled on and on with his slurred speech so much that folks thought he was on Quaaludes.
I think serious disservice was done to the GOP cause, by permitting Eastwood to ramble on to an empty chair, making throat cutting gestures, suggesting “they” own America, implying that the empty chair (POTUS) was telling him to go fock himself, and ending with a famous line from his macho movies (“Make my day”) suggesting he was about to blow somebody away at the slightest provocation, particularly in this day and age.
In fairness, it would appear he had carte blanche permission to freelance, and word has it that many in the RNC were grimacing and squirming in their seats, while listening to Eastwood’s least impressive role since his brief appearance as a sailor in “Francis (the talking mule) in the Navy” early in his career.
Unfortunately, it would appear many (not all) of those in attendance, (mostly angry, old, white guys, the Tea Party stalwarts not unlike Eastwood’s character Walt Kowalski in “Gran Torino”) ate it up. Did the rest of America? Stay tuned. I, for one, a fan of much of his later work, was extremely disappointed in this performance, and do not feel it was at all appropriate. JMO.
I thought it was hilarious. Local-comedy bar where they sell jello-shots kind of hilarious, but hilarious nonetheless.
This is just poor. The three main stories coming out of the convention? Paul Ryan is a pathological liar, Clint Eastwood made a d**che of himself, Anne Romney experienced some of the normal challenges of life and had plenty of bank to deal with them.
3 days. How do you think 4 years will look?
"Anne Romney experienced some of the normal challenges of life and had plenty of bank to deal with them."
Better to have "plenty of bank" of your own than to be "affirmative actioned" along the whole way like the 2 soon to be ex residents of the White House.
>>>"Anne Romney experienced some of the normal challenges of life and had plenty of bank to deal with them."
MS and Cancer are a normal thing for a person to endure at the same time? Anne is one tuff lady who is respected and admired by anyone who knows her. God bless her, she touched the heart of millions with her speech.
"Eastwood’s least impressive role since his brief appearance as a sailor in 'Francis (the talking mule) in the Navy'"
I talk to the chairs
But they don't listen to me
I talk to the stools
But they never hear me
The sofa hasn't time
To stop, and hear what I say
I talk to them all
Must have been a great convention. You apparently hated it.
Next week I bet we get to hear the Dems tell us everything they are going to do that
they should have done in their first 4 yrs. to fix the mess we are in.
Should be a real hoot.
"Romney did not need the money so the (sic) donated it."
Right, some to a church, and some to his children. Hey, it's wonderful hearing facts from some do#chebag faking someone else's alias on an inheritance stock message board. I'm sure everyone here believes you.
I have a better idea, however. How about we look at the Obamas' tax returns, which are available, and we look at the Romney's, which are not. How you people can defend that is completely beyond me. How you fools can even consider voting for a guy who is obviously hiding how he's lived his life and who he will be looking out for if elected is mind boggling.
You are being duped by very wealthy people who want to maintain the status quo and blame it on the middle class and the poor. Claiming birther nonsense, while running a candidate who wants to perpetuate a system rigged in favor of the one percenters is pathetic.
I debate this stuff on a regular basis, with friends who benefit from this. They, at least, acknowledge that they are out for themselves. Little creeps like you spending all day doing their work for them through lies and deceit is reprehensible and pitiful.
Amazing, I did not say extremist...you did in your reply.
The vast majority in unions today are in public employee unions. America spoke along time ago about unions and they are not popular.
What will you do if Obama is defeated?
There is a good chance that he may be.
And, pro union is leftist in my opinion.
It doesn't make me a 'hater' or a 'neanderthal'.
I am just a person who does not value 'unions'.
I helped defeat them when they tried to organize
my industry (computer technology) and did not see how it hurt us.
There must be a reason that there are so very few private industry unions left.
