Moments before Clint Eastwood approached the lectern at the Republican National Convention on Thursday night, he asked a stagehand to get him a chair.

Sadly, Clint appeared addled & senile.

Much like Ronald Reagan from the end of his first term until he dropped out of public view...

I know what you're thinkin.
Are there 57 States or only 50?
Well, seeing as this is the United States of America,
the most powerful country in the world,
and could blow your head clean off,
you gotta ask yourself one question?

Where's Vera Baker?

Demoncrats hate old people that don't have white beards and leather patches on their elbows. They treat old people like useless cattle they can milk every 2 years for votes. If you step off the plantation, they call you senile and crazy. But Jimmy Carter is okay though?

Democrats are full of FALSEHOOD by telling people over some years old (69year old?) are all over when medical science progress prolongs the life-span of people.
Yet they even dare to talk about the well-being, medicare and social security for seniors.

If they don't have compassion to do good for people, especially people over 69 years old, how can Obama and Biden be in a position to talk about the standard of health care, living environment and well-fare for seniors, minorities, women and many more others?

Most importantly, they just don't know how and what to do even they want to, but always come about doing the wrong things and in the wrong way whenever they try to lay hands on anything.

Sadly for you libtards that Clint reminded everyone that we the people own this country and the politicians work for us. I realize that upsets you entitlement freaks who love to be herded like cattle but this is the USA not Cuba. Ron Reagan could be exhumed and put in the oval office and still make BO look like the hack that he is. BTW speaking of Senile, Addled and just plain hollow, how is Al Franken?

That's ok chit merchant, Obama at 50 is already morally and mentally an empty suit that spouts only the words loaded on his teleprompter. You can tell he doesn't know what he's saying or even practices it.......by how he miss pronounces the words. He be just another puppet in blackface.

RNC Ratings Night Three: Romney Results In Ratings Rise, Only FNC Retains Viewership Compared to 2008

By Alex Weprin on August 31, 2012 2:40 PM

Night three of the Republican National Committee culminated in a speech from GOP nominee Mitt Romney, and the ratings rose accordingly.

As was the case during the first two nights of the RNC, Fox News Channel was the most watched TV news outlet, besting the broadcast networks from 10-11PM. Last night, however, the gap between FNC and its competitors was even wider, as it topped the next two networks, NBC and ABC, combined in total viewers. Every outlet except NBC improved on its Tuesday night ratings in both total viewers and the adults 25-54 demo.

RNC was large on 'my bio' distortions and outright lies. Stage right Clint... "the old man and the seat"
The empty chair and invisible person !
Ironic because the GOP position is invisible and empty.

As for the RNC "right turn Clyde"
PS: Mitt should be on Clyde's right.

That would "make me day "

Sorry, it was a stupid gimmick.

The focus should not be on Eastwood but on

1. the ECONOMY
2. JOBS
3. HIGH COST OF GAS
4. OUTRAGEOUS COST OF FOOD
5. the DIVIDE created by OBAMA

Who cares what any celebrity says - whether they are supporting Obama or Romney. It's irrelevant.

George Clooney, JayZ, Beyonce Eastwood and all the others have a pampered lifestyle: limos, charter jets, numberous mansions, personal assistants.

These people are DISTRACTIONS from the ECONOMY and the FAILED OBAMA POLICIES AND PROGRAMS

Obama is an EMPTY SUIT and a Criminal that can't do the job he was hired for. It's time to let that piece of shit go and start a Criminal Probe into Obama's Assassination of US Citizens.

Our Divisive President

Barack Obama promised a new era of post-partisanship. In office, he's played racial politics and further split the country along class and party lines.



By PATRICK H. CADDELL
DOUGLAS E. SCHOEN

During the election campaign, Barack Obama sought to appeal to the best instincts of the electorate, to a post-partisan sentiment that he said would reinvigorate our democracy. He ran on a platform of reconciliation—of getting beyond "old labels" of right and left, red and blue states, and forging compromises based on shared values.

President Obama's Inaugural was a hopeful day, with an estimated 1.8 million people on the National Mall celebrating the election of America's first African-American president. The level of enthusiasm, the anticipation and the promise of something better could not have been more palpable.

And yet, it has not been realized. Not at all.

Rather than being a unifier, Mr. Obama has divided America on the basis of race, class and partisanship. Moreover, his cynical approach to governance has encouraged his allies to pursue a similar strategy of racially divisive politics on his behalf.

Don't you recognize the attacks on the forum relating to Clint's age ?

More B.S. from the " Intolerant Tolerant Left ".

Isn't it sad when that's the best LEFTY can come up with ?

Do you think LEFTY will make similar remarks next week when Jimmy Carter addresses the DNC ?

Megger, the question of Eastwood's age may be some kind excuse for his strange behaviour and it is certainly not an "attack" on his age but a way to mitigate his lame efforts.

Did anyone see the irony of the empty chair being used in a campaign where the republicannot candidate is considered unlikeable, vacuous and an empty suit. And the repubs are trying so hard to "reframe his image" and show he is warm and fuzzy?

Clint, this was not your shining moment, nor was it the best choice for a repube convention.
