Scarborough: Eastwood Spoke 'From The Bottom Of A Bottle'
NewsBusters ^ | Mark Finkelstein

Posted on 09/10/2012 10:41:11 AM PDT by governsleastgovernsbest

Joe Scarborough has suggested that Clint Eastwood was drunk when he gave his RNC speech.

Today's Morning Joe opened with a clip of Mitt Romney telling David Gregory that it was a thrill to have Eastwood speak on his behalf at the RNC, and that he felt Eastwood spoke "from the heart." Scarborough came on and said that rather than speaking from the heart, Eastwood spoke more "from the bottom of a bottle."

I am not sure how you can confuse Clint Eastwood with the former Governor of Michigan.

Even if true, Clint Eastwood drunk is more intelligent than Joe Scarborough sober.

Last week my Democrat State Rep. endorsed Scott Brown. Posters on the Malden Patch suggested that the last time he spoke at graduation that he sounded drunk. The “drunk” card seems to be the new meme.

I deal with several elderly males in my practice. By my estimation Eastwood was speaking like a perfectly sober 82 year old who still has a pretty sharp brain - unlike ANY newreader on DNCNBC.

When you look up “sell-out” in the dictionary, you’ll find a picture of Scarborough. He’ll do anything to keep his pathetic job at MSNBC, so why should anyone pay attention to someone speaking from the “bottom of the barrel”?

And left-wing media STILL can’t stop talking about it, 1 1/2 weeks later.

Now there’s a speech with real impact!

The Left vs Right debate...

Right: The economy is in the tank.

Left: You’re a racist.

Right: If your employee isn’t getting the job done, it’s time to let them go.

Left: You’re a drunk

This is known in Leftist circles as a sound rebuttal.

No Leftists, sound rebuttals would be, “No, this is the reason why the economy is not in the tank.” “No, you don’t fire people who aren’t getting their job done.”

Of course those arguments aren’t true and can’t be made. And hence the Leftist insults.

I’m glad the Republicans don’t have to call Obama a drunk, to counter his untrue statements. I’m glad they don’t have to make the case that you hold on to employees who are not productive. Everyone knows the opposite is true.

Joe is such a dolt. He just said yesterday that the Romney campaign needs to be conservative and differentiate. Then he slams the guy who best nailed Obama’s problems.

Joe has become Clueless Joe over the past 5-8 years. He just has no core, he’s all over the place.

Or Teddy Kennedy.

The mainstream meida sold out a free press decades ago, but Joe Scarborough is really speaking from a sewer - as he generally does.

Ok, Joe...for arguing- we’ll stipulate Clint was drunk (I do not believe that for one second, either).

HOWEVER, Joe, when he was stone cold SOBER and was interviewed by the local newspaper, he said, among other things:

President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” Eastwood told The Pine Cone this week.

Remember that is the meme they use to make the Bush-Gore race in 2000 as close as it was, his old DUI was brought up at the last minute.

Clint is a genius. They are STILL obsessing about his skit. The various copies of it on Youtube have collectively gotten MILLIONS of hits, from people wondering what all the fuss is about.

Even if this is true, which it isn’t I would say the same thing Lincoln said when told that General Grant was a boozer. He said, “Find our what kind of whiskey he’s drinking and give a bottle to all my generals”.

Oh Scarborough can just go suck lemons!

It amazes me the impact Clint Eastwood had on these people.

When it hits close to home and they feel threatened by the words,they will do and say everything they can do to discredit the person speaking them.First he was called senile,but the seniors vote so now they will change him to a drunk.

They are pathetic!
