    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?



    ....





    I would vote for Clint Eastwood. Unfortunately the republicans would never put someone up that would fight for what they believe in, and sais what they think.

    You will hire and pay them a living wage then? If not, don't complain. What support are you talking about? This government is so awful, I wouldn't support it financially even if I were incredibly wealthy. If that's what Romney's thinking with the offshore accounts, I'm totally on his side! Some who don't pay income taxes are homeless (again, what support?), many were just laid off work temporarily (possibly by Romney himself), others barely get by even working full time.

    What has the government done for them? What would it do if they were taxed more? The 47% comment was asinine political suicide, a total disconnect with reality. Almost everyone would gladly take an elevator in their mcmansion garage in exchange for paying some pittance to the fed. This kind of insulting question that you ask is definitely not going to win elections.

    The rest of your questions are legit, with exception of at least 1 is genocidal, so gonna skip those.

    I liked it... Older people have a tougher time of communicating and timing so respect the guy and give him a break so he can tell you a thing or two.

    I found it incredibly uncomfortable to watch, not particularly funny, not particularly enlightening, and wondered who had thought it was a good idea to give someone with the creative capacity of Eastwood unvetted free time on national tv. He was obviously improvising, leaving dead time while he worked his next gag in his mind, made the audience squirm... not in a good way.

    Don't get me wrong, I admire Eastwood for his talent and creativity, although it was sadly lacking at the GOP speech. But cripes, he's Hollywood for heaven sake... you know, the "Hollywood" that Romney ads now lambast as Obama's Stepford Buffoons. Eastwood is right. The GOP invited him to speak, didn't bother to find out what in hell he would say, and counted on the "famous celebrity WOW factor" without bothering to research the well-known fact that Eastwood is nobody's lackey, cannot be controlled, and would basically give a big F.U. to anyone, republican or democrat, who didn't like what he had to say.

    All I can say is that the GOP "fought the law and the law won".
