“People loved it or hated it, and that’s fine. I figure if somebody’s dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they’re gonna have to take what they get.”
Dirty Harry [Clint Eastwood] let this comment rip in a recent interview with Extra. Clint was on the interview circuit promoting his new movie titled “Trouble with the curve.”
Mr. Eastwood was referring to his eleven-and-a-half minute skit with an imaginary Obama sitting in an empty chair on stage, answering questions fielded by Mr. Eastwood. This took place just before Mitt Romney’s nomination acceptance speech at the recent GOP convention.
Eastwood was quite unapologetic and expressed that he’d do it again if asked to do so. The Dailymail.co.uk writes about his interview on ‘Ellen’… “He also told Ellen that most people thought he was ‘going senile’ over the RNC speech. Eastwood says it was Romney’s ‘people,’ not the former governor himself, who asked Eastwood to speak at the convention.”
He expressed his views about supporting gay marriage even though he is backing Mitt. Ellen must have been quite relieved to hear that as it shows that Dirty Harry hasn’t lost his aim, and still shoots straight. Eastwood said, ”The condition of society right now, with the high unemployment rates and the tremendous debt we’re increasing and the government spending, we’d think there’d be more to think about than worrying about gay marriage.”
Clint is still convinced that Romney can bring a business leadership approach when it comes to fixing the economy, although he may change his opinion soon as we are now becoming aware of Mitt’s true intentions with the release of a secret video of Mitt talking to his friends at a $50k-a-plate dinner where he demeaned half of the country’s voters. Mitt would do well to remember that a President takes care of the whole country, not just the top half.
