TRANSLATION: It was stunningly successful and hurt our side badly.

BTW, they've already polled on it and it was amazingly effective.

It was effective.

Even Bill Maher is saying that it worked as intended.

Well, if Rachel Maddow thinks it was a disaster, it must have been effective.

I want to watch election returns on MSNBC, precisely to see the reactions of Rachel and Ed and Toure and the gang, as we see Obama booted out of office.

It was fun watching them report on the Wisconsin recall and the 2010 mid-term elections for this reason. I hope we get to see their reaction to a big Obama defeat....................

Maddow is always looking out for the RNC, right?

As Rush often says, just listen and they will always tell us who and what they really fear.

It’s like she goes out of her way to have a mannish appearance. I’ve never understood why some lesbian females do this.

It is a disaster ONLY because the “progressives” have found it politically convenient to name it as such. It was Clint Eastwood doing a much better comedy routine than any of the
crap I’ve heard the other side laughing at when their so called comedians speak of killing Republicans.If ther eis any disaster it is because the Republicrats are so afraid of the Democrats they have been apologizing for good humor.When no such apology is necessary.For anyone to apologize for what Clint Eastwood said is a disgraceful affront to the good man.

I was walking around my small town yesterday, in CA, and all I heard people talking about was how great Clint’s speech was. We are a conservative county, but still, grass roots thinks he was great. Madcow is just another dimwitted idiot.

Rachel Maddow: Clint Eastwood’s RNC Speech Was ‘A Political Disaster’ For The GOP

And what - pray tell - qualifies this leftie loon to know what hurts or helps "our" side? Has she ever in her life lived as a conservative or even been a member of the GOP? It is akin to women telling men they cannot talk about women's issues since they have never lived as a woman.

Maddow is an idiot.

1. Eastwood made it clear that not everyone in Hollywood is in bed iwth Obama.

2. Eastwood is not a political shill. So when he poked fun at the failures of Obama, it resonated.

3. The left can’t accuse Eastwood of being a racist or bigot. He is “one of them”. You don’t hear ANYTHING about them addressing the substance of what he said.

4. Eastwoods comedic presentation with the empty chair was brilliant on several levels.

5. Having an 82 year old Hollywood actor with a reputation as a “get it done” guy doing the carving on Obama was great.

I thought it was very effective.

What the hell happened to Her ? She's acting strangely and loosing control of her ability to do normal things, such as walk, talk, which sometimes means mental illness.
A cow with BSE develops these problems because it has developed an infection. This infection causes its brain to waste away and become spongy.
BSE is a concern because it can be transmitted to people if they eat meat that came from a cow with BSE.

Could Rachel be a “Mad Cow” ?

I figured Clint’s speech would be mediocre to a flop, but it appears I was wrong. He has flummoxed the Democrats. They don’t know what just happened to them, but they know it was bad.

Did Eastwood stumble at the beginning, yep, when the teleprompter went belly up and he had to wing it.
Did he speak slowing, yep, he is old and not used to speaking in front of crowds.
Was the empty chair brilliant, yep, it was.
Was his message perfect, pretty close.
Clint Eastwood’s appearance at the convention has thrown the liberals into hysteria, it did what it was intended to do.
Good job, Eastwood.

Someone needs to tell screechel that saying her prayers out loud won’t make a difference. She should know by now hoping don’t work. Hope has become the new four letter word for the Obamabots. Tired and fired.

The measure of it's impact, is how does the other side react to it?
Doesn't really matter what our side thought if it. The goal is to get those on the fence to come our way.

When the Obamanation is tweeting at 12:30 am about it; that tells me it was effective.

Why do Liberals think that anyone would take them serious when they give real Americans political advice? They want Romney to fail as much as they want America, the free enterprise system, and Israel to fail. These left-wing control freaks are just stupid. Who is so naive as to believe they care about Romney having a good nomination?

True, MSM reaction trying to belittle the messenger. Can't have Hollywood defection. The image of the empty seat with a teleprompter was great.

Also Clint talked about Obama’s ridiculous leadership....flying around in big Air Force one to community colleges talking about student loans.. Mean while 23 million unemployed.

Rachel, even if a viewer thought Eastwood’s speech was bad or silly, or even a disaster (which I don’t believe they did), they would have quickly forgotten it 5 minutes into Marco Rubio’s OUTSTANDING speech. His speech was magnificent and frankly I had forgotten the Eastwood shtick by the rousing conclusion.

The only people obsessing over this are flaming lefties who know Eastwood did serious political damage to their Messiah, and teens and twenty-something “too cool for school” types who wont be voting in November.

Maddow is wrong, like her reproductive proclivities....

I am afraid, though, that some of our PhonyCon Liberal GOP Media will start agreeing with Madcow and the Liberal Media....like they do with illegal aliens, Hispanic voters, gay marraige, pro-Abortion, etc...

Eastwood was a great move...I just hope those on “our side” do not start trashing him
