Clint Eastwood: “President Obama is the Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on the American People”
thegatewaypundit.com ^ | 9/7/12 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 09/07/2012 9:06:51 AM PDT by Justaham

AFTER A week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to.

“President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week. “Romney and Ryan would do a much better job running the country, and that’s what everybody needs to know. I may have irritated a lot of the lefties, but I was aiming for people in the middle.”

Clint should have said that one sentence and walked off the stage.

“It was supposed to be a contrast with all the scripted speeches, because I’m Joe Citizen,” Eastwood said. “I’m a movie maker, but I have the same feelings as the average guy out there.”

Clint needs to give the Josey Wales speech to Romney’s campaign team:

“Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you’re not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. ‘Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That’s just the way it is.”

I love Clint and always go to his movies on opening weekend just to say “Up yours” to youth-worshipping Hollywood liberals. Clint’s new movie, “Trouble With The Curve,” comes out on Sept. 21st. If everyone who agrees that Obama’s gotta go joins me at the theaters, it will have a bigger debut weekend than Batman and scare the living bejeezus out of the Democrats, just like Chick-Fil-A Day.

Besides, you know it’s going to be a good movie. It’s Clint Eastwood!

I don't know, but it does come close... Anthropogenic Global Warming is certainly more durable, has been more wide spread, and may even be more financially damaging, but then again, the Arab Spring has yet to progress to its long hot summer.

Time will tell.

Another hoax is that we have a Congress that would maintain checks and balance on the Executive Branch.

Fortunately, Eastwood has enough stature to say what he believes and not be penalized for it.

It’s too bad it has to come to this.

Of course, the ‘treatment’ isn’t limited to Hollywood.

Here where I work, a university, I can’t BREATH a syllable of what I really think or I’d get my tires slashed and worse. So, I understand the many Conservatives in more visible fields who hesitate to speak at all. The intimidation is very real and increasing.

Good for Clint!

I think Clint did a great job; many of us could be more outspoken if our paychecks, pensions, etc. didn’t depend on it. Financially secure retirees are the last free people in this country; they are not penalized for their color/gender and can speak their minds without fear of repercussions.

"He’s going to get the ‘senile old man’ treatment now."

That label should be applied to Tom Brokaw. Brokaw said Eastwood had too many words at the RNC. Then the dope mistakenly takes an Ambien, and had to be taken to the hospital. Eastwood's more on the ball than Brokaw any day, and the libs hate it.

The blog edited the article. I was surprised on his views see below.

Eastwood is a liberal on social issues such as gay marriage and abortion, but he has strongly conservative opinions about the colossal national debt that has accumulated while Obama has been president, his failure to get unemployment below 6 percent, and a host of other economic issues.

Great comment! I thought the trail boss was a paragon of manlinessm toughness and virtue that once was the ideal for all men. Now, Hollywood and TV promote girlie men, weak characters, narcissism, and immorality.

No, he really couldn't. This was a very carefully scripted performance, and done that way for a reason. He played the role of a rambling old man in order to show that even a rambling old man can figure out what a fraud Obama is. It was done with some biting humor, for the purpose of turning an Alinsky tactic against Obama and the Dems.

FYI, I don't think for a minute that a guy who is producing and acting in movies like Clint has been is in the least bit senile - but a good actor can project about any image and get his audience to believe it.

The best thing he did was to definitively show that not everyone in Hollyweird is a foaming-at-the-mouth radical Leftist.

It’s rather amusing to see an “old senile man” deliver one of the most witty, coherent, and creative speechs at the RNC, let alone any political convention for that matter.

One has to wonder why the Left bothers to viciously attack a little “old senile man”. After all, isn’t he just senile?

Pot, meet kettle.

Clint Eastwood: “President Obama is the Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on the American People”

Yes, he most certainly is. Elected by a ship of fools and creative manipulators.

It’s amazing there’s a certain percentage of the American public too dumb to see it.

“hoax”

Subtle but accurate.

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/hoax

“Something that has been established or accepted by fraudulent means.”

So what is the fraud Mr. Eastwood is refering to? Interesting word to use at this juncture.
