I believe this will be in prime time. Wow, don’t you know ABCNBCCBS are horrified to have to actually broadcast Hollywood royalty on the scale of Clint Eastwood endorsing Romney! Heck, I wouldn’t even put it past them to go to commercials and not cover it.

Taylor Hicks is the guy with no voice, and is destined to spend the rest of his career as a lounge singer(poor SOB).

Both he, and she, realize what a loser he actually is and is about to be proven so in the upcoming election. You can only shovel bullshit so long before the smell starts to permeate your entire ensemble.

Taylor Hicks is a American Idol winner from a season past...about 5 years ago I think.

He is one hell of a Blues singer. A treat to listen to if you happen to catch his act.

I’ve watched a grand total of five minutes of the convention. Most of it has been a snoozefest. But I might make an exception if Clint Eastwood speaks.

I think Taylor Hicks is extremely talented. Saw him at the House of Blues once, and it was one of the best shows I ever saw. I’m glad to find out he’s Republican...or at least, he’s not hostile to Republicans, like most celebrities.

I am extremely excited. The GOP has a wonderful stable of newcomers. I have been very impressed by them.

I am very happy that Paul Ryan was chosen. He is positively electrifying. He is smart and humble.

I want Obamacare gone. I want all of us older folks not subjected to death panels. I want the party of death and infanticide, the democrats, kicked to the curb.

If Clint Eastwood is with us, welcome Clint Eastwood, he is doing the right thing!

I can’t wait until tonight.

This guy?

President Obama’s ad-makers may have to pay royalties to Clint Eastwood after a remarkable two-minute Chrysler commercial that aired on the biggest of all stages - the Super Bowl - and gave a pretty good preview of what the president's reelection commercials might look like. At the very least, the ad and Eastwood's powerful narration make it much, much more difficult for Republican front-runner Mitt Romney to keep pushing his line that Washington should have let the automakers go into bankruptcy.

I hope Clint and the speechwriters come up with a way to use his famous movie line, Get off my lawn!

I think it was “go ahead and make my day, Obama”

Okay, Clint didn’t say Obama. But I can dream. If he says that tonight, I would go apecrazy!

Not to brag...but when I first saw him on AI...I picked him to win. I haven't watched a moment of AI since but I knew he had something different. Some of his performances were just spectacular. But I always did like the genre where he fits best.

You probably mixed up Taylor Hicks and Taylor Swift. They both are talented singers, with different genre. Hicks is blues, while Swift is country.

Taylor Hicks has an amazing, bluesy voice that matches the best. I really enjoy his music and I thought he’d win the whole thing too, and I was glad when he did!

They’ve both got too much common sense to even entertain the notion of doing that.

Here’s a video of Taylor’s performance at the RNC. He always makes me smile, because he is always smiling. A very handsome, talented and likeable guy!

Again...not to brag...but when Vanessa Williams was a contestant for Miss America way back when...I picked her as the eventual winner after seeing a newspaper spread that featured photos of all 50 contestants.

Sometimes I just get a vibe and I know it's a certainty.

However, I never get them in a casino and I suck and gambling. Go figure.
