TIME’s media critic James Poniewozik wants to know why the RNC didn’t decide to play Clint off.
Next Stand-Up Hero
Oh, so now you proclaim to be an advocate of Jesus. You need to go back to school and hopefully learn something!!
Dan BruceYou lost the debate because you made the same assertion and even threw in some snide plays on my name which means you have no tangible evidence to back up your position. You lost, and your done. Period.
Thanks, Clint "“Do you just—you know—I know—people were wondering—you
don’t—handle that OK" Eastwood! You and Romney have given the White House to Obama for 4 more years!!!!
Real Academy Award-worthy
performance!!! Must have been your opening scene for your new movie, MINDLESS!!!
As far as I'm concerned, an 81 year-old man did great without a teleprompter. He said less uh's and mmm's that Obama does without a teleprompter. He's a lot funnier and it took guts to buck the trend in Hollywood and stand up for a Republican. Kudos to Mr. Eastwood.
Did Clint Eastwood steal Romney's thunder? Dirty PoliTricks Message 4U
All right. I started, you finish it. Go ahead.
AUDIENCE: Make my day!
I wondered about when the -- what do you want me to tell Romney? I can’t tell him to do that. I can’t tell him to do that to himself.
(APPLAUSE) Clint Eastwood’s message was brilliant social engineering that said, “YES WE CAN” His own Party and US Democrats will in November....
I think Mr. Eastwood did a great job, regardless of the what the everyone says. I guess it takes a little more understanding of where he realizes where this country is headed and by whom it being damaged by than living in a make believe world that Obama and "his followers" are headed.
I for one want to see American rise again to her feet, than being knocked down to her knees by the President and the other countries that are running him.
I don't feel we should apologize to any country for our actions, but may we should apologize to each other for our current president.
" Vote for Mitt" - - - - NO MORE "OBAMANATION"
O - - - ONE
B - - - BIG
A - - ASS
M - - MISTAKE
A - - - AMERICAN
Please don't let it continue. Vote For Mitt Romney"
The Republicans had committed to obstruct every policy of our current President even before he was sworn into office, according to the hundreds of recently released emails of Eric Cantor, John Boehner, Mitch McConnell and other top members of the Republican leadership. "If he is for it, we MUST be against it, regardless of our past positions". This is a fact that is undisputed by Republicans.
Yeah sure, we should just hand over the presidency to an obstructionist party who has no other goal than to see themselves return to power, regardless of the consequences to ordinary citizens! Really?
you can believe their lies, but fact was Barack had free hand in '09 with Dems in total control but got obstructed only after 2010 as they got rolled-over by him in 2009 ash he flaunted with the words that Election has consequences ! With such arrogance, who won't get mad and GOP got their revenge in 2010 and that's the fact, but you choose to ignore that but just accept the lies they are propagating now in the hope we will be fooled again ! No more Jose !
democrats have forgotten that clint is entitled to free speech and that republicans will not micromanage anybody.sadly, obama is best represented by an empty chair.
Obama was kinda lucky that CLINT, didn't JAP-SLAP him for tearing the Nation down so quickly !
Actually, Obama kind of real lucky that he's got LOYAL supporters that believe he can DO NO WRONG................but then again..................HE CAN"T DO NOTHING RIGHT, EITHER !
OBAMA, What a HAS-BEEN !
HA! Now thats rich. That old man couldn't slap his way out of a wet paper towel. And it's doubtful you could make it three rounds on "Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader".
Are you a FEMALE ?
If you are, maybe you should crawl back up the womb that you came from and start over !
It wouldn't matter to me if I was put in my place by a 5th grader because I know if a 5th grader had done that, then that means his GOAL in life is to become smarter and more intelligent then the rest of us, means there's HOPE for all of us cynical 56yr Old War Horses like me that things might get better because of his education !
GOD, help you if your a Female and a Mother of children ! You probably slap your kids for asking questions then encouraging them to seek answers !
The way I see it....YOUR PART OF THE PROBLEM, NOT THE SOLUTION !
Congrats for your continued stupor after drinking too much HOPE and CHANGE, because you didn't even know the sour HOPium that have enslave your thought in bondage to entitlements and Mendicancy instead of demanding to find a job and not just watching TV shows ! Clint was just trying to awaken others like you to face reality !
‘Yo bixch, this shxt aint’t going to work out!’
Slight pause as Clint soaks in the silent trauma of the chair crying needlessly into its lap.
‘Yeah, I thought so too. And Mitt over there he knows a kitchen table he wants to show you up against too. Stop staring back at me bixch. Just listen for a moment and I’ll straighten this shxt out for you!’
Another long pause, the sound of Mitt offstage looking for a rope to lasso that stupid but lovable bixch out of harm’s way and then the sudden sound of Mitt poking himself with a blunt pencil to deflect the excruciating pain running up and down his nervous system
And now Clint smugly retorting ; ‘Yeah I thought you’d see it my way too!’
What a shame there is no national agenda (charles harris) and doesn't that just hit the nail on the head. Both parties seem so extreme these days and our Congress so incredibly ineffective (they're too busy peeing on each other's trees to actually get any work done) that I have yet to have a conversation with anyone who is pro one party or the other.
If Obama remains President - we are likely to end up so far in debt that we may never ever recover but if he succeeds - more people will have the opportunity to go to college, our citizens will have insurance coverage, and the millions of people who are now homeless or close to homeless may not have to live under bridges until the economy rebounds. On the other hand, of all those people to receive these benefits a significant number will be illegal aliens who if we were not paying for them - would ease our debt significantly in the first place. AND there is no fear from any illegal immigrant in America of being chastised for carrying around Mexican flags and touring the country shouting WE ARE ILLEGAL - WE HAVE RIGHTS! There' something seriously wrong with that picture.
On the other hand, if the Republicans take back everything (and yes, Obama inherited this bus when it was already plunging off the cliff under the leadership of the Republicans), then Corporate America (which has taken such advantage of this recession to manipulate lower wages, fewer benefits, higher costs, and massive layoffs in exchange for multi-million dollar bonses) will only grow stronger and with even less oversight. Banks will rejoice and the sins of their ongoing greed quickly forgotten. Those of US without jobs may be living under bridges and those who can afford to contribute more, who made their riches right here in this country, will not have any responsibility for stepping up in our time of need.
Eventually, one hopes, we will recover but right now the real ? is - who will mitigate this recovery so that it does the least damage and rebuilds the strongest foundation? The Democrats could do the least damage, the Republicans could build the best foundation.
But as it stands today, our Congress is so busy marking trees - any President it seems will be ineffective. There's nothing scarier than a 2nd term President with nothing to lose if we are already concerned with his lack of direction and behind the scenes policy changes; except maybe a first term President who has yet to prove he's got the backbone to be there.
I don't know and it concerns me. I'm still waiting for the President who says, yeah - we can close the loopholes on the uber rich - they can handle it for this time of need for their country. And yeah, let's put some teeth into the immigration issue perhaps by both allowing more legals in and moving more illegals out. And for sure, for sure a President who says - Corporate America pay attention - you think u can afford to make your riches here and then move to cheaper countries to keep it? Watch this - the rest of the world cannot make up for what you will lose in purchasing options. You want to sell here from there? Not a problem, but trust me bubba - its gonna cost you big time. Lets see how long that takes for you to feel it. I'm willing to wait it out - are u?
Where's that President?
It appears that Clint Eastwood's "performance" at the RNC mirrors his character in his new movie -- MINDLESS.
Is this going to work this time? This site sucks.
Anyway will someone please tell me what obama has done to create an environment where people want to work. His whole goal is to make the weaker minder people dependent on government. He was elected for one reason only, and unfortunately that reason is not a good qualification for being president.
Well Obama was elected because McCain/Palin were a perfect example of Dumb and Dumber.
Now the GOP gives us a religious tax cheat.
Eastwood said, in a rambling, refreshingly (and sometimes painfully) candid way, what many Americans are thinking - and what professional politicians can not say themselves (because they'd be forced by the media to recant and apologize for anything that smacks of political incorrectness). Eastwood was someone who said a lot of politically incorrect things and got away with it - he provided the only "entertaining" moment of the entire convention. By the way, I'm a Republican - was Taylor Hicks the best singer they could come up with?
Amen at last swomeone who says something worth hearing. My husband amp; I BOTH found clints speach delightful. Like you said he said what everone was thing but didn't have the guts to say. I read a joke the other day i think you might like it. This traveling salesman stopped at a little country store for something cold to drink. There was 2 good old country boys talking about what a mess obama was making of the country. One said he thought a bullet to the brain was the only way to put an end to it. The other man stood there and thought about this for a while this was his reply. Bubba I don't think I ever heard of anyone dying from a gunshot to the BUTT.
will someone please tell me something Obama has done to improve the economy, something that would give people an incentive to work. He honestly has no experience in anything remotely related to job creation or business for that matter. The fact is he was elected for one reason, and that reason was not a qualification necessary to be president of the United States
If someone could please tell me something Obama has done that gives people incentives' to work I might be willing to vote for him.
It is you who need a rehab as Clint was just trying to awaken others who are still in stupor from too much HOPE and CHANGE ! Unfortunately, you are just one who never realized that it turned into sour HOPium, a potent drug that enslave thoughts into bondage of Entitlements and Mendicancy !
While Clint is old, he was very lucid enough to wake up from drinking HOPE and CHANGE in '08 and realized it's dangerous potency to enslave our thoughts into bondage of entitlement and Mendicancy ! That is how HOPium can destroy our country and need to be discarded quickly !
Hopefully when we're that old and feeble no one will put us a stage in front of millions for their benifit.
Repubs need to put down the remote or fried chicken leg and can of cheap beer and wake UP! If you don't believe our overweight, undereducated, papmered, rude, classless American children won't need a safety net in the form of health care you are sadly mistaken. The only thing spewing from your mouths is hate. That's all. I have always watched thre RNC to get an idea of what the Republicans were planning or had to offer. But this year I couldn't get through more than a few minutes. Scary. If you think Mitt Romney has your best interest at heart and in the forefront of his vision you are sadly and pitifully mistaken. If you don't want President Obama to serve our country because of his race, why don't you have the testicular fortitude to say just that? And not from the protection of your livingroom on your laptop. Step out in public and announce that. Cowards. And that Clint Eastwood schtick was sad. Just sad.
Obvously your a negro, sodomite, degenerate, communist with an inferiority complex or you wouldn't say such things about Republicans. Republicans have the highest intelligence percentage in the U.S. Check the stats on the web if you don't believe me. And haters? There are no better haters than the demoCRAPS. In fact you are their posterboy. As far as the democraps being stupid, just look at your mascot... THE ASS.
The Romney camp certainly didn't do Mr. Romney a favor by having Clint Eastwood ramble nearly incoherently for 12 minutes. Eastwood needed to be either be on script, or not on the stage. What a horrible thing to put on national TV when the video of Mrs. Romney whould have so much more appropriate and persuasive.
I love the way that Clint Eastwood did that. I believe the best part was when at the Last part he said if your not doing your job then your gone, and the Part where is said it not matter if you vote for Romney or not just vote for the Right one
