I have a right old laugh when someone is complimented on their ‘sampling’ skills.

It’s like being patted on the back for running a photocopier.

Clint Eastwood: “Obama Is The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated On The American People”…

Just ask Sherrif Joe Arapio whether he agrees with Clint. The hard cold facts are starring the entire nation in the face.

“I had three points I wanted to make,” Eastwood said.

(1)...“That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left

(2)... that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office,

(3)...the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job.

Great job Mr. Eastwood - the nation got the message... Thanks.

"What made it more effective is the fact that Clint is a Centrist in the truest sense of the word." And the left will still try to destroy him. And they will fail.

The left doesn't tolerate those who don't tow the line... You're right Joe, they'll try to destroy him... Prayers for Clint Eastwood.

I’m glad he’s saying what needs to be said. Good thing is, he feels secure which emboldens him. He’s a legend. There’s little Hollywood could do to him. He’s made his fortune.

He is the best shooter in the conservative camp !
Better than Romney and probably also Ryan who are trying to play it falsely “fair” and “nice guys”....

The next morning, he got up early and went straight to the airport, still unaware that his appearance was the No. 1 political topic in the nation. “I read the Tampa newspaper, and every article said something negative about the convention, but there wasn’t much about me,” Eastwood said.

He had no idea that overnight, a rebellion had erupted online against the media’s condemnation of him, with thousands of bloggers, Twitterers and commentators calling him, “a genius,” “1,000 times more brilliant than the media,” and saying he’s “only gotten better with age.”

Eastwood 'gets' the MSM too.. we've got a convert...

I agree with your assessment of the character of Gil Favor.
I grew up in the early 60’s and never missed an episode of Rawhide.

A couple of years ago I started buying Rawhide again through
Amazon. I’m up to the fourth season now.

Might I suggest The Virginian also...James Drury playing the part of The Virginian is almost as equal as Gil Favor.

Pretty close that is...

Rock Hudson was just an actor.
What he did in private was his own business. He hurt no-one but himself.

Rock Hudson’s hoax was a tiny matter in the grand scheme of things.

The American people have been subjected to much more significant hoaxes. I would put the entire environmental movement in there, plus the current global warming business, as the greatest hoax ever. Bigger than Obama by far.

As much as I am ashamed to admit this, have a liberal relative who is all excited about going to see 0bama today at his campaign appearance. She said they will probably have to stand, because it will be so crowded.

I SHOULD HAVE SAID that there is sure to be an EMPTY CHAIR on stage. Too late. Also I was tempted to say something about another wasted day. But I say nothing to keep family peace.

Nothing 'incoherent' about Clint's presentation. Save to a Liberal's ears; whereby 'truth' when arriving; is quickly morphed into something else altogether. Their systems cannot handle truth. As for an incoherent old white man; these Dem critics must be confused. We know that guy; and his name is Joe Biden.

Thank you so much for posting this article. It is a Weasel Zipper repost of the original article from Clint's home town newspaper, the Carmel Pine Cone. That is Clint's style. No LA Times or CNN interview. He talks to his local paper who has known him for years.

It tells the process he went through to create his routine. The confidence he had to go up on stage with three basic ideas to get across and then do it all off the cuff. He is a true master of his craft.

The idea of using the chair came literally just before he went on stage when a stage hand offered him a chair to sit in at the podium. Clint got the inspiration right then and said no just put it to the side of the podium. He developed the whole routine while on stage.

It was real. It was spontaneous. It was masterful and based on a lifetime of performing and living.

A delightful article.

Nic,

Good point. Clint is secure in himself and has the confidence to know he can say what needs to be said when he gets up on stage.

Another insight from this article, is that Romney personally invited Clint to the convention to have time on stage. Romney and the campaign had enough confidence in Clint to not vet his script (there was none!) and trust him go up on stage and be Clint.
