Clint Eastwood Embarrassing Rambling RNC Speech 2012

In a largely incoherent speech, Clint Eastwood “maybe possibly” praised Mitt Romney, but mostly he argued with an empty stool, which was supposed to be Obama. It was…awkward, it was disrespectful it was appalling and worst of all the crowd actually Loved it .

My God!! What the hell was that?!

I agree with MSNBC's Ed Schultz...

It was bizarre, demeaning to the presidency, lowered the standard of the convention and was completely unnecessary.

I thought it was pretty funny

by Anonymousreply 308/30/2012

I thought it was humorous. I am not a republican, and I did appreciate Clint giving the shout out to values - not partisanship. I do not agree with his conclusion but please, he's an actor and he would probably be the first person to tell you that and he did actually work his ass off to get where he is. It was purely for entertainment, MARY!

Republicans: The Democrats and Obama are beholden to Hollywood and out of touch with the real America, so we'll have an actor speak at our convention.

The president never had a real job, so we'll put Ryan (who has even less real world experience) as our VP.

Social security is evil except when it helped Paul Ryan's family.

In Eastwood's defense he has never claimed to be a part of the family values BS - he considers himself more of a libertarian, he is more about leaving people alone.

I don't even hate Mitt Romney- in fact I feel sorry for him. He is clearly afflicted with the Mormon belief - "be in the world and not of it" that is why he is so wooden. Frankly I think he is in the Republican party and not really of it. And for that reason I think he is a somewhat decent guy. However Paul Ryan is pure evil - in his narcissism he believes he is the heir apparent to Ronald Reagan. I am no Reagan fan but Paul Ryan is NOT Reagan. He is neither personable nor likeable enough to be Reagan, Ryan is just pure calculating evil, not even intelligent enough not to believe his own budget BS. Evil AND stupid is a dangerous combo.

This is a man who made a complete jackass out of himself. This is a man who showed exactly why your party is a joke. The fact that you are attempting to defend this old, RICH, fool -who has been married five times and had kids out of wedlock- when there are millions of old people who aren't as well-off and who actually NEED YOUR HELP AND COMPASSION, is precisely why you people are simply disgusting.

Don't pretend as though you would've shown compassion if he had done this at the DNC. It was pathetic and you know it, but as usual for the party of NO responsibility for everything bad and taking credit for everything good, you're attempting to make this about "libs."

I haven't seen him in a movie in forever, but I was struck by how shaky his voice was.

I remember George Burns on talk-shows well into his 90s, and he still had his comic timing and wasn't doddering. Clint's current age is about the same age Burns was when he made his comeback in "Oh God." Eastwood's numerical age isn't the problem, it's the fact that he's aged so poorly.

It had a disrespectful tone to it, like Eastwood felt Obama didn't deserve the type of respect given past presidents. And what was this "we own this country"? Who's "we", I saw a sea of white faces in the RNC. He, like other idiotic, hypocritical Republicans choose to ignore the fact that he was blocked from getting anything done by hateful and divisive Republicans. And what the fuck was he talking about when he implied Obama might not be a nice guy because of the political ads they've put out? Has he no clue about Romney destroying his primary competition with attack ads and the right wing SuperPac ads and Romney's welfare ad lie? Clint's a senile old fool, he must be on heavy medication when he's directing and acting in his movies.

I've never been a big fan of Clint's, there's only a handful of movies, maybe less than that, that I like by him, but I'll never watch them again. He's dead to me, he's clearly brain-dead.

Better to treat it like great-grandpa's spirited turn which is just about indulged. Obama's youth and eloquence are in themselves reproof enough.

It's so ridiculous the way Clint referenced Jon Voight being an Oscar winner and the delegates cheered.

Which part was so substantive to you? The implication that Obama was telling the RNC to go fuck itself? Really?

I'm with R4 and I am a liberal. It was their convention and they can say anything they want. I missed Eastwood last night, but saw all the griping and thought it must have been really bad. Then I saw a part of it this morning and it wasn't that bad. He meant to be funny and he's not a politician. If the republicans want to put him up in prime time instead of their own candidate, good for them.

I think the bigger issue is that there was a lot of bad planning and poor execution all across this convention, from picking this location for an event during hurricane season, to having Mitt's wife give a speech about her husband without a single anecdote. I think it shows the way they would run the country, with one poor idea after another.

One thing that really bothered me about Eastwood's speech were the instances where Invisible Obama "interrupted" him, once where Eastwood said that IO had told him to shut up and the other where IO had apparently told Romney to go fuck himself (Eastwood made a comment about Romney performing an impossible act with himself). What bothered me was Eastwood's supposition that the real Obama could be that low, base and vulgar. Did he forget that the party he was there to represent - the Republicans - have tried to demean and demonize Obama at every opportunity, even going so far as to interrupt him during a State of the Union address? And yet, Eastwood thinks it's amusing to have Obama call him out?

R119, I was thinking the same about Biden. I'm not a huge fan of Biden, but the GOP really is pathetic if they think Biden's guffaws are all that he is. When in the hell have their guys even been face-to-face with a real challenge?

They seem to forget that their guys have pretty much been in a FOX cocoon. They haven't really been up against anyone that will call out their lies to their faces.

They're entitled idiots who honestly believe Obama has been "protected" by the media because unless they claim he is a "socialist out to destroy America," they're liberal.

As far as I'm concerned, that empty chair was perfect. Intellect-wise, it's on the same level as the average Republican these days. It's about the only thing a Rep. is qualified to argue with because anything with at least one functioning brain cell is too much for them to handle.

It was disrespectful for Clint to say Obama should fuck himself

It was a very funny skit when Bob Newhart did it.

by Anonymousreply 12808/31/2012

Chris Hayes just said the idea of Clint standing there and literally talking down to President Obama as though he were a child was incredibly offensive. I agree.

Post your favorite #invisibleobama tweet:

Mine so far:

"The Invisible Obama was cruel to wave Mitt's Invisible Tax Returns around like that. Clint should've stopped him."

I never thought about it like that, R130.

Even Mittens's aides are all "WTF???"

by Anonymousreply 13308/31/2012

Clint doesn't say 'cut' on his movie sets when he directors.

He says 'stop.'

Stop, Clint. Just stop.

It would have been much more entertaining had Sondra Locke come out as a surprise guest and sat in the chair.

The Romney people were not happy with Eastwood's speech.

Paul Ryan had a total WTF look on his face when it was all over.

Awful embarrassment for a legend.

That asshole commentator on CNN, Alex Castellanos said that Clint Eastwood made it "socially acceptable" to laugh at President Obama and he said those male yahoos in Ohio or whatever loved seeing the President denigrated by Clint. This is what their mindset is, Republicans are scum.

Alex C was on Romney's election staff last time around.

I watched the video of Clint's comments again, wondering if I just needed to find my usually healthy sense of humor.

But -this time I noted his slitting the throat action while talking of letting Obama go. I think he did it twice. Unforgivable.

Hope he gets a visit from the IRS.

Will there be any fallout for Eastwood over this? He fucking deserves it. But the people in Hollywood will still kiss his ass.

by Anonymousreply 14308/31/2012

Don't think it matters, R143. His company finances his films. He's a bit like Mel Gibson in that way. I'm sure right wingers will go to his movies now. Doubt he'll ever be nominated for an Oscar again, though.

by Anonymousreply 14408/31/2012

Too bad, his new movie looked sort of cute.

I like Amy Adams.

Poor Clint leaves a very bad legacy because of this speech and saying good things about that nut job Jon Voight makes it worse.

I was of course voting for Obama any way but poor Clint saying we need a 'business man' for the job convinced me more I'm making the right choice. I know business men AND business majors and believe me you don't want them running our country.

To think this man i (or was) James Brolin's best friend and he was the one who introduced him to Barbra.

LOVE the comment that FEMA should be running the Romney campaign.

I hope the Democrats have someone talk to an EMPTY SUIT!

Romney picking Lyin' Ryan

Lyin' Ryan's dead eayed delivery of his non-factual speech

And the Clint Eastwood debacle

made Anne Romney look HUMAN!

VERY bad for Poor Clint because all he makes is Oscar bait movies. Remember his J Edgar not I repeat NOT a gay movie that didn't get Leo the Oscar he thought he would get? The one who suffers the most is Beyonce or will we hear the announcement that Poor Clint was canned as director of A Star Is Born?

Listening to otherwise sane, intelligent, professional adults defend the Eastwood speech reminds me of the way they claimed to be pleased and thrilled at the choice of Sarah Palin in '08.

I thought Clint's performance was delightful in that he channeled my dear Ronnie.

Here's an irony:

Clint thought it beneath him to appear on his wife's Reality Show!

Should've been in a rocking chair.

It's not going to work, honey. It was embarrassing for the GOP.

We LOVED it. The only thing that would've made it better is if Palin or Trump was out there to further embarrass the GOP.

I'm so disappointed in him. Always thought he was a cool guy. Republicans don't like jazz, unless it's Dixieland. At least poor Sondra Locke is finally vindicated.

by Anonymousreply 15409/02/2012

I was too, R154.

He used to be cool, there is no question.

Perhaps early Alzheimer's?

We have to get Obama back in office to finish destroying this horrible nation. Obama can fulfill our liberal dream of communism if we can just get him elected one more time. If he can just get our deficit over 30 trillion, that will spell the end of this country and create a civil war so he/we democrats can finally win, win win!!!
