Indeed he is.
After a week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to.
President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people, Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week. Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and thats what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.
For five days after he thrilled or horrified the nation by talking to an empty chair representing Obama on the night Mitt Romney accepted the Republican nomination for president, Eastwood remained silent while pundits and critics debated whether his remarks, and the rambling way he made them, had helped or hurt Romneys chances of winning in November.
But in a wide-ranging interview with The Pine Cone Tuesday, he said he had conveyed the messages he wanted to convey, and that the spontaneous nature of his presentation was intentional, too.
I had three points I wanted to make, Eastwood said. That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician whos not doing a good job. But I didnt make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.
I agree. Obama is a bigger hoax than their “global warming” scam.
THAT is a perfect quote!!
Holy CRAP! This is AWESOME!!!
President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,
- Clint Eastwood -
I wonder if Clint knows how many Americans have empty chairs sitting in their front yards right now.
What made it more effective is the fact that Clint is a Centrist in the truest sense of the word. Anyone who knows his views knows he is far from what we here would consider to be conservative. While the Democrats were preaching to the choir in Charlotte, Clint made his case to the undecided voters, with devastating effect.
The empty chair was a last second improv!
About time someone has the guts to say it, hoax, unknown place of birth, unknown college records, unknown social security card residence, unknown father, unknown anything about him, he’s like an alien that fell from the sky.
This entire interview needs to be read...Romney and Ryan loved what he did- they were backstage laughing with him...
Clint Eastwood, you are a Great American!!!
And the left will still try to destroy him. And they will fail.
Second was Rock Hudson as a leading man. If I remember, the press was complicit in the perpetration of that hoax as well.
Proof that Clint has balls-of-steel! To walk out on that stage with the intention of ad libbing in mind-numbingly gutsy, to me. Just wow.
Between the lines, he's refering to a lot more than a shite economy, imho.
Bravo Clint !
Great read. Boo-yah.
