“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.”
“I had three points I wanted to make,” Eastwood said. “That not everybody in Hollywood is on the left, that Obama has broken a lot of the promises he made when he took office, and that the people should feel free to get rid of any politician who’s not doing a good job. But I didn’t make up my mind exactly what I was going to say until I said it.” (Carmel Pine Cone)It's an interesting article, giving a blow-by-blow account leading up to the speech and then the aftermath.
After the DNC's Kavalcade of Kooks, Clint's performance looks even better.
Eastwood: Mission Accomplished
And as a latebreaking addition, I'm reposting Scudrunner's excellent comment from yesterday:
The GOP needs to point out the Obama/Obiden lies
1. Clinton left Bush a surplus not a deficit = Lie
Clinton was in deficit spending (That means we were spending more that we were taking in). With his new math of using the medicare surplus he considered that a budget surplus.
2. Obama saved the auto industry and Romney said let them go out of business = lie
What Romney said is they need to file bankruptcy to reorganize. What Obama did was spend 20 billion to give the unions half of GM, eliminate several companies and then have them file bankruptcy. At least he took Romney's advice
3. Romney/Ryan will give millionaires/billionaires a tax break while raising taxes to the middle class = Lie
Romney will eliminate tax deductions which will affect the "rich" far more than the middle class
4. Obama cut taxes for 95% of Americans = Lie
He cut SS taxes further depleting SS for the future while starting taxes for obamacare and of course tanning
5. Romney/Ryan will cut medicare = Lie
Over 55 nothing will change, under 55 you have a choice of accepting a voucher to pay private insurance or take medicare as it is. Democrats think Americans are to dumb to make their own choices.
6. Obama will strengthen Medicare by lowering costs = Lie
He will cut reimbursements which will result in fewer Dr's accepting medicare resulting in healthcare shortages
7. Obama go Bin Laden = True
Thanks to the systems put in place by the previous administrations which Obama was against.
8. Obama is for equal treatment of women = lie
Female workers at the WH make less than males.
