Clint Eastwood tells off President Obama
82 year old Clint Eastwood took to the stage of the RNC, to make a fool of himself. And thank God for Mr. Eastwood!
While the 82 year old actor, producer, writer and husband extraordinaire made some very valid points, he also made many Republicans feel embarrassed that they are Republicans.
It was sad, scary and embarrassing seeing an eighty two year old Academy award winning actor standing on stage completely 'winging it' in front of millions of people.
You see, in case you missed the actual moment, or you missed the overtly negative media doing what they do----not saying anything positive about Mitt Romney, Clint Eastwood talked to President Obama on stage by talking to an empty chair. He addressed the empty chair by saying things such as , "No, I don't think that Mitt Romney can do that to himself, Sir."
While, as a Republican, (I'm not afraid to admit it), I saw the hilarity in what Clint Eastwood was saying. I understood what this brilliant actor was doing. He was making a point without telling President Obama off. After all, no one in America is supposed to stand for anything anymore. We are not allowed to speak our minds anymore. And we are not allowed to say anything that will be disagreed with. So, I could see what Clint Eastwood was trying to do. But I knew other people would not get it.
Clint is an old guy now, who is not senile, but is this side of artistic, who knew exactly what he was doing! He was making jokes, and poking fun at the president. He even managed to get in a few about vice president Biden. In this age of political correctness, we are not allowed to say anything politically incorrect. Clint is an award winning A-list actor, who is obviously very artistic. Many artistic people will seem strange to non-artistic people. While it became clear that Clint needed to stop talking crazy talk to a chair, he also got his points out. He also drew the overtly serious attention away from Mitt Romney, and he did something else. Clint made a fool out of himself, but he also made a joke out of what he was doing.
If indeed he is senile, then let it be, because the man is a millionaire, an award winning actor/producer many times over, and he is still working in the film industry today.
