Clint began, “I know what you are thinking. You are thinking, what’s a movie tradesman doing out here? You know they are all left-wingers out there, left of Lenin. At least that is what people think. That is not really the case. There are a lot of conservative people, a lot of moderate people, Republicans, Democrats, in Hollywood. It is just that the conservative people, by the nature of the word itself, play closer to the vest. They do not go around hot-dogging it.”
Ad-libbing? No! Surely not.
“So I — so I’ve got Mr. Obama sitting here,” he said, pointing at an empty chair. “And he’s — I was going to ask him a couple of questions.”
“I think possibly now it may be time for somebody else to come along and solve the problem,” Eastwood said, which was oddly not the most tepid Romney endorsement of the convention so far.
He then proceeded to grill the chair. “So, Mr. President, how do you handle promises that you have made when you were running for election, and how do you handle them? I mean, what do you say to people? Do you just — you know — I know — people were wondering — you don’t — handle that. Okay.”
On it went with the crowd at one point shouting "Make My Day". Presumably that means that those in attendance were keen to get a gun and blow someone's head off.
Each GOP speech now has the regulation. "American" in it plus a nod to the fact that each generation expects that their children will do better than they. The latter is a fine sentiment but hardly reality in the modern World. If it was each person would be living a luxurious life with no-one left to work cleaning, clearing drains and emptying rubbish. Just like in nature we all play a vital part in this world, or we can do if allowed.
As for "American", the way the GOP voice it, it makes me wince. It has hints of their birther issues regarding President Obama. A sad affair all in all.
After Clint put some fire in the belly of the GOP convention and some laughter into other sources Romney delivered his speech. It was more of his bland, wooden, non persuasive words. It is hard to tell which speech did the most good and which the most harm to the Romney election campaign
It will depend on the political leaning of the listener and perhaps whether that person is sane or not.
