    […] media is spinning the president’s tweet as a shot back at Clint Eastwood for his┬áskit using an empty chair for his imaginary conversation with […]

    Besides Eastwood (who I like) being a total disaster by any standard, the worst thing is that had him on just after 10 PM when the networks went on the air. That should have been when they did the Romney video.

    Attacking the messenger is proof the message struck a nerve.

    What was the message????….that we should blame Obama for the Afghan War?? WTF

    I actually felt very bad for Clint….You want to attack someone, go find out whose bright idea is was to put him in that situation.

    When my 82 year-old uncle started talking to the president in the empty chair next to him, we put him in a nursing home. Mitt Romney put Clint Eastwood on national television.

    Brillant Satire Clint!
    You obviously hit a nerve with the liberals and whimpy Rinos
    God bless you and thanks for the truth!
    I love those that dare to say what others only think.

    I laughed to tears of joy

    I just had a chance to watch it.

    The speech was brilliant!

    Anything to break the monopoly of everyone else’s nonsense is refreshing. How did he get away with not using a script? Even the master orator from NJ was required to use a pre-approved script.

    He said that you do not have to vote for someone who you do not like (anti-Romney delegates liked this) .

    He said that he never thought that it was a good idea for a lawyer to be President (Obama does not have much more lawyer experience than law school grad Romney).

    He spoke about everyone being equal, Republicans, Democrats, Libertarians (The delegates know how over 200 delegates were refused rules recognition because they were too conservative).

    He gave the foreign policy speech that Romney has refused to give so far:

    -Shut down GITMO.

    -No one asked the Russians about Afghanistan before invading (wasn’t that done by a Republican?).

    – Bring ’em home (I wonder if Romney will heed that suggestion?)

    By illuminating reality, Clint’s fantastic act clearly illustrated why the viewership of the Republican convention was down 40%. The RNC had built in too much Broadway and not enough of a genuine reflection of the atmosphere.

    -Gene, an equal opportunity critic

    he actually stood too far away from the mike in the hall, so many did not hear all the jokes: the idea was: get a revered Hollywood legend to boost the ticket- God knows we will be subjected to every left-wing kook from Hollywood they can squeeze in, next week in Charlotte!.. if it upset the D’s/libs, then it fulfilled it’s purpose- and, by highlighting the rest of the excellent and accomplished speakers, from many states and ethnicities, the convention was thoughtful, informative, not shrill, not nasty, and offered a positive alternative for Nov., to the real malaise and hopeLESSness of these past, very long, 4 yrs.!
