report is that the teleprompter froze and he had to wing it.
Clint was a mistake.
Great screen name...I loved that show! :)
I wished someone would upload the video of Clint as i want to download it for posterity.
I can see tomorrows headlines now:
Senile, stuttering, racist old white man talks to empty chair.
And it’s already starting. The Madcow just said his speech were the incoherent ramblings of someone with alzheimers.
Love Eastwood, but having him speak was a mistake. Sure, he got some laughs, but the media will have a field day with his performance. He will be ridiculed to no end by the likes of Maher, Letterman, Conan, and, of course, the media.
You can say that again. Still, despite a few awkward spots where I wondered if he had memorized his speech but had trouble recalling what came next or had vision problems and couldn’t see or at least couldn’t find the next line, he was great. The humor was classy and excellent, and he’s still Clint. I just hope he was feeling tired today, and age isn’t really slowing him down that much.
My dad is there on the convention floor and texted me to say that the prompter wasn’t working. He did that without prompter or notes.
Ol’ Rowdy hasn’t aged well.
Bringing him in is a slap in face.
Do you people have any intention of winning or is this just to give it all away to your friend Obama?
I thought he did fine. In the movies you get to re-do the lines until they are just right.
Movie stars are generally not good public speakers—and when you see them stumble a little it is so different it is more noticeable.
I thought he spoke for “ Everyman .”
Clint should of looked at the empty chair and said “Right turn Clyde!”
lets hope Obamas teleprompter stops as well
You do know that Romney is a Havard Law grad, don’t you?
Did he ever practice law?
That is so true! I actually said that out loud. “Obama can’t make a video like that”... you can almost feel sorry for a weak man who grew up surrounded by people who hated America. How could we ever believe he would understand how America worked? Obama is a tragedy.
I think so too.
I also think his material went over most ppl's heads including those at PMSNBC ...
That was rather embarrassing. Clint *was* a good actor but his politics have always been a bit squishy and he just seemed to be taking up valuable speaking time. Was anyone really moved by this rambling hem-haw of a alzheimer moment?
I’d bet Sarah Palin would have energized the crowd twice as well and got off more zingers.
He’s not a lawyer. Going to law school doesn’t make you aa lawyer.
And FWIW, I think Mitt is giving an excellent speech...
