Most of America LOVES Clint Eastwood and LOVED his dialog with the chair.
Talk about scapegoating....
The PROBLEM was and is the GOP FLIP FLOPPING.
Even in this article:
In an interview with PBS' Charlie Rose, Stuart Stevens said Wednesday that Eastwood's now-famous skit at the Republican National Convention was a divergence from what the actor had originally planned to say...
"To a degree it was a distraction, it was bad."
During his RNC appearance, Eastwood spoke to an empty chair as if President Barack Obama were sitting in it. His performance was described as random and out of rhythm with the convention, though it drew laughs from the roaring audience.
"What do you want me to tell Romney?" Eastwood asked the empty chair. "I can't tell him to do that to himself."
Stevens gave a different interpretation last week when he spoke during a symposium with Obama campaign officials at Harvard University's Institute of Politics. "I don't think it was a big deal," he said.
So, Stevens, which is it a big deal or a little deal?????? Do all Mormons have Romnesia????

GOP racism was rejected by more people than those who embraced it. That's the bottom line. Nothing else mattered. The race card innately consumed the whole deck. GOP played race to the hilt.
GOP was so sure showing Romney's lilly white family would trump images of Barack's black family. Romney thought just the image of a black family in the white house as non maids and wait staff would be so repulsive that folks would vote against it.
Even Dubya knew that having latinos in his family and showing them helped him.
GOP still running from essence of their problem, the impossibility of trying to keep this nation white, the vamosing of pale face.
