    The Democrats who were watching thought I was going senile. And the Republicans knew I was!"

    Eastwood also seized the opportunity to clarify his political views -- he's not a Republican or a Democrat, but a Libertarian.

    I was afraid Clint lost his marbles when he was having a discussion with an empty chair. Now I just think he was having some fun.....

    Is he right? Was the Republican Party dumb to invite him to speak?



    ....





    What prime time unscripted and not pre-approved speeches did Democrats allow anyone to make?

    Control freak national Democrats. They are destroying local and state Democratic officeholders.

    With the rabid support of Obama by 80% of the media and press, Obama my well be re-elected, but at the cost of 10,000 local, county and state Democrat positions and officials.

    Well... I doubt very much they knew what they were in for, that's for sure. At the time it probably seemed like a good idea (he's famous, well liked, and universally respected as an artist), and hindsight is, as they say, 20/20. In general I really doubt his appearance will do any real harm to Romney's chances. The people who already hate Romney have been mocking Clint since this happened. The people who like Romney (or feel obligated to vote for him because they hate Obama) aren't going to change their minds because a crazy old man made a fool of himself onstage. All in all, this just isn't all that important. It's funny, but it's not important.

    You're sounding pretty rabid yourself there, dude. You may want to stop castigating the kettle, Mr. Black Pot.

    Get real bud I think this is hilarious. Eastwood got one over everyone and this is note worthy. Also if you read the article it is dated today September 19, 2012.

    BTW do you have sources to back up your assertions?......

    I agree with this. I beleive they were hoping for some old sound bites delivered in person and got a dose of one pissed off hombre. He wants the job done right just like anyone else.

    Re: Clint Eastwood: The Republican Party Was "Dumb" To Invite Me to Speak at RNC

    I thought Obama was classy to say he is a huge fan of Eastwood and he was not offended!

    Obama: Clint Eastwood RNC Speech Did Not Offend Me

    President Barack Obama said he wasn't offended by Clint Eastwood's antics at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

    "One thing about being president or running for president -- if you're easily offended, you should probably choose another profession," Obama told the newspaper, adding that he is a "huge fan" of the film legend.
    It was bizarre yet Eastwood usually has a script and plays a role. It was improv. I liked some Eastwood flicks yet really do not remeber much of him. The clip of the empty chair was bizarre yet RNC conventions are always funny without meaning to be. I do not have a TV yet I always like seeing all those heavy set white people in funny hats on clips of the convention!

    The RNC did not do much to help Romney ... yet I always thought conventions of either party were more of a formality. If it entertained the the people attending I guess it served its purpose.

    The cons like electing actors for office ... heck maybe Clint will be the next Ray Gun.

    I voted we are all taking it too seriously.

    None. Most people look at that as a good thing and the sign of a party that's got their **** together.

    It used to be the Republicans who were organized and had it down, and the Democrats who looked like a bunch of retards trying to hump a doorknob. Times have changed.

    Winning doesn't mean your smart, the Dems have trashed the Reps plenty of times too.

    Yep. He went Gran Torino on their asses. He's still got it.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I don't understand what you're saying here. Are we supposed to give credit to the RNC for letting Eastwood speak? Mitt Romney is perceived as a boring and stiff Mormon who spends his time trying to find loopholes in the tax code and on occasion lets loose by firing a few employees who are low on the totem pole. That's why they let Eastwood speak. To remind people that some Republicans can still kick back and have a few chuckles every now and again. I liked Clint's speech, but only because it was so bizarre and out of place it melted my mind in a way nothing other than Dark Side of the Moon has done.
    A working class hero is something to be
