In the conclusion of Clint Eastwoods 1976 The Enforcer, Dirty Harry blows away a Bill Ayers like figure with a bazooka after dispatching a revolutionary terrorist group (called the Peoples Revolutionary Strike Force in the film) running loose on the streets of San Francisco. Throughout the film, Dirty Harry is hot on the trail after a Marxist like terrorist group led by a blonde male actor who could easily pass for Bill Ayers. The leading terrorist has a dark haired girlfriend who resembles Bill Ayers real wife, Bernadine Dohrn...

Clint Eastwood delivered the best convention speech I have heard since Barry Goldwater at the 1964 GOP convention.
OR better yet: Send him behind OBAMA on his campaign trail, just as NEWT said he would do.
A gritty gut wrenching indictment of Obambi policies in 2 mins and 39 seconds
I really think Clint could do some good, if he was sent behind Obama in every town Obama goes to.
Clint would do a great job in deciphering all the lies the people were just told by Obama.
Also: have Clint's bus rigged with a Video screen on the side, running these clips. People will watch this, after all he is EASTWOOD, maybe the clips should have him dressed in some of his "character" clothes.
Make a video in western character having a conversation with the DUKE. This can be done, with all the clips available on how the DUKE thought on issues.
If it is a video, the "peoples" will watch, that's how they learn what is truth to them. Sad to say, but the truth.
Not a bazooka, but an M72 (series) LAW (Light Antitank Weapon), which in the movie they irritatingly called a “laws rocket”.
While it is to small to destroy a tank, though it might disable one with a lucky hit to a tread, it is just the cat’s pajamas against light vehicles, bunkers and apartments, so it is beloved for urban warfare. It is also very light, at about 5.5 pounds, so it is not uncommon to see a user with three or four of them slung on his back.
And again, unlike the movie, it does not cause a fireball by itself. If you see a fireball, it is because it hit something flammable.
Here is a video of some US soldiers in Afghanistan, who are obviously a little bored. Slightly NSFW because of some salty language. Funny.
Here is a more realistic video of a LAW round hitting the ground.
No, it’s not a new Romney ad, but I have to admit, someone in the conservative TV media could have a lot a fun with this by putting something together to be watched on television.
Thanks for the info.
I still haven’t seen an “in his own words” ad about Obama. His home country of Kenya, he stands with the Muslims, he’ll close GTMO, Bill Ayers was “just a guy from the neighborhood”...
There have to be about a hundred usable statements, if we have the fortitude to use them.
I think you are right about how the conservative media can use this.
I still think Romney's campaign is missing another avenue to reach the ignorant masses. Put a video screen on some bus/van etc., advertise FREE Clint Eastwood movie, and run some sort of ad of him as one of his western characters, with a little bit of the DUKE.
It would work, the masses will not watch a conservative news site, but the will watch FREE videos. Videos, etc. is their only source of information. Drive one of those buses/van's into town, park it on some street, go for dinner while it is running.
Yes, I hear you!
Romney and his advisors would never go for it, but an indepedent PAC might be able to use it.
Maybe someone will see this and pass it on.
