Harold T Wrote: I think people should get over it and just enjoy watching Mr Eastwood
sabrina05 Wrote: Schmidt - actually I felt so bad about Clint Eastwood. I had a hard time explaining to my husband when he ask "babe, who is he talking to"? I answered, "don't you see that empty chair? Imaginary Obama is suppose to be sitting there and Obama is carrying on a conversation with him." My husband said, "what? has he gone crazy. Why would he be talking to an empty chair?" Oh gad! My only simple explanation to my husband was, "when I was a little girl and I have no one to play, i have this imaginary playmate sitting across me and I am talking to my imaginary friend" unquote, and that empty chair is like my imaginary friend, only with Clint Eastwood it is imaginary Obama sitting on that empty chair. Then he understood. Oh crap. I'm even explaining something to an adult who was confuse to what was going on.
Anyway, if Clint Eastwood went off at a scripted role, he was on his own. And that, did not work well. I guess Clint Eastwood just showed up at the Convention to disparage the concept of his showing up at the Superbowl Commercial about "Half time America" with that Chrysler/GM cars rolling behind him on a conveyor...the Auto Industry saved by Obama from total bankruptcy. Republican did not like that at all. And to amend the situation showed up at the Convention and made it worse for himself.,,,and for the Romney's campaign.
Well, let me put it this way, I was already sort of surprise when they announced Clint Eastwood will be at the Convention. But...it is his choice....So, see what happened? His appearance did not even helped. Bad enough, the LIES of Ryan the night before created a big mess, now this? ISAAC....RYAN....EASTWOOD.....three strikes, you're out.

Harold T Wrote: I am a moderate African American and I enjoyed Clint Eastwood speech. He was hysterical. He is a libertarian. When he said he wanted to cry because 29 million American werre unemployed shows he cares about America. President Obama does not always answer questions or isnt available and he was spoofing him. I think using the race card is ridiculous and it is being used too much because someone criticizes the president or has a negative opinion. It looks bad for others who cant see the truth and has no argument for the poor economy and the critque of the president is business as usual. There was nothing racist about the skit.
