Mitt Romney's people are pondering today who let the crazy uncle out of the attic so he could upstage Romney on his big-night speech accepting the Republican nomination for the Presidency.
I am assured by reliable sources that when Romney wins theres no if about it there really is no plan to nominate Clint Eastwood to succeed Hillary Clinton as the next Secretary of State.
What is certain is that Obama is one lucky guy. First, Isaac thats the hurricane all but extinguished the media spotlight for the opening of the Republican National Convention and drenched the delegates.
Now the buzz everywhere is all about how Dirty Harry made the Democrats day with his bizarre routine involving an empty chair representing Obama, rather than what Mitt said after the chair had been whisked off the stage.
Thats a pity. Romney the chameleon of the long nomination process, the oaf at the Olympics delivered a speech that was free of the Obama-hating, bullying, neo-con rhetoric that demeaned so much of the convention.
When he told the delegates eager for apocalyptic fury that President Obama deserved full credit for taking out Osama Bin Laden, it was as if a Roman emperor had deflated the crowd in the Colosseum with a thumbs-up signal for a gladiator rather than a lethal thumbs down.
I dont want to suggest that Romney has suddenly become an appeaser, a peacemaker like Jimmy Carter or a centrist like Bill Clinton.
Romney makes it clear that he is readier for a real showdown with Iran as it advances to the zone of immunity where its secret nuclear work in the mountains will be more or less invulnerable to attack....

Mitt Romney is wild?
The UK media must be reporting some of the worst US copy
If we are called on to rescue England again, we’ll put it on hold. What a bunch of whining pansies.
Reading this is like looking at America through a fun house mirror. Clinton a centrist? Romney wild? At the risk of switching metaphors, is the Greenwich time zone in a parallel universe? Cause it sure ain’t nuttin’ like the one I’m living in.
From that article Mr Evans appears to understand the American mind at least as well as I understand the British mind. Imperfectly, at best.
they seem to believe the liberal narrative
Harold Evans at 84 is older than Clint Eastwood at 82—and he’s long been the one who’s loony.
The only thing we have remotely in common with the brits is that we both speak english... kind of.
I worked with them for over a decade. To say I don’t care for most of them is being kind. Sure, there are a few that are OK but using one of their illustrations, “we are as different as chalk and cheese”.
Their ethics are situational at best. They are arrogant to an unrealistic degree and haughty generally having no reason for it at all. They are deeply seeped in a caste system and think that title means something and that honor, respect and awe are attached to it. They wrote the book on being bureaucratic and for the most part free thinking initiative dies a lonely death if it ever surfaces.
Robert Horton pretty well sums up the brits in his observation to the U.S. press when interviewed after he came over to be president of Sohio in the midst of BP finally taking it over: “I tend to get things quicker than most people on account of my bigger brain.” He was a fathead allright.
Harold Evans, Editor-at-Large, Thomson Reuters sez. Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.
Romney... delivered a speech that was free of the Obama-hating, bullying, neo-con rhetoric that demeaned so much of the convention.Wow, what an asshole. And, he forgot to include "doctor murdering global warming denialists and family values hypocrites".
Ever notice how leftists utter the slur “neo-con” with exactly the same sneer as Nazis with “filthy Jew”?
I suspect that both terms mean about the same thing to the usual suspects.
And I am sure we feel the same way about you.
Worked with us, or worked in the UK?. Because you can hardly pass judgement on a whole people if you only worked with a few of them in your own country, or at least not in their own environment.
And we find you just as arrogant and loud as you seemingly find us.
Yawn. There always a barroom historian who brings up the world war myth.
I wholeheartedly agree, and additionally, wonder what their FR nicks are. Thanks Grimmy.
Well, some Englishmen were observed closely in an Italian environment once -- was it Edmund Spenser? -- un inglese italianato e un diabolo incarnato.
Doesn't get much more derogatory than that, unless it's the old German college-boy canard that "Englishmen are dogs, and have tails". Sounds like the perfect invitation to a mooning.
Without the latest down-low 4-1-1 from the lowlives at TMZ, yes, he is .... still. Two kids with her.
He was Rupert Murdoch's man at The Times of London for about a month, then quit and wrote a tell-all. He became a US citizen in 1993 .... and was knighted in 2004. (How's that work?)
Published The American Century in 1998 and was a mugwump at U.S. News & World Report and The Atlantic Monthly.
It's all at his own website.
