Let's start with this - I love Clint Eastwood's work. He is a very underrated film maker, maybe the best American film maker of the past 20 years.

What happened tonight at the RNC was insane. How is Romney going to distance himself from that debacle? Eastwood implied, in a bizarre interview with an empty chair, that the Pres of the US was saying, "Go F yourself". He said lawyers shouldn't be President, and Romney is a lawyer. And he wandered into several grudging approvals of Obama's policies.

Wow.

As someone who wants badly for Romney to lose, I was a bit worried about Eastwood's speech. Now I'm worried about Mr. Eastwood's mind.

LOL. I coach with a couple of staunch Republicans and a few bleeding hearts... we all just stared at each other after that speech.

Romney isnt a lawyer, he was smart enough to pass the bar exam but never practiced law.

i watched the speech a few times. didnt think it was all that bad to be honest. it was tongue and cheek and the old guy was stammering because the speech didnt look prepared. His use of the chair was a theatrical device.

Eastwood is a libertarian and even mentioned something about closing GITMO and ending the wars, something an establishment Republican would be against. He also had a positive message about politicians being our "employees" and should be let go if they dont perform. Nothing wrong with that.

I dont think Eastwood is at all very partisan like a Limbaugh and Hannity. I also dont think he's a very smart man or all that well informed - like most celebrities. Therefore you cant really judge him as someone who would be politically informed on all the issues.

Remember the Chrysler Super Bowl commercial narrated by Eastwood?

The right-wing noise machine was in one of its inevitable tizzies for a few days over Clint being in the tank for Obama.

Shockingly, Eastwood, a professional actor, was being paid to narrate a commercial production. And it was a commercial production from a company that was nearly wiped out celebrating the resilience of the American spirit as represented in its industrial sector.
