Eastwood says his convention appearance was 'mission accomplished' By PAUL MILLER
Published: September 7, 2012
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.
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.
It was supposed to be a contrast with all the scripted speeches, because Im Joe Citizen, Eastwood said. Im a movie maker, but I have the same feelings as the average guy out there.
Even people on the liberal side are starting to worry about going off a fiscal cliff, Eastwood said.

President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people”...My, my...now that’s pretty strong condemnation of Obama. This is the sort of plain talk that we need in politics right now. The best thing about Eastwood’s dialog with the chair is that it poked fun at Obama, something most actors/entertainers are afraid to do.
