    Geez, not a big fan of Obama, personally, will probably be voting Third Party because I hate Romney just as much. But I find it hysterical that some on the right are going absolutely batshit nuts that Clint Eastwood is supposedly shilling for Obama.


    Clint Eastwood? YOu know, Dirty Harry? Really?


    Clint Eastwood Political Quotes : Celebolitics – Celebrity Politics

    In January 2005 at National Board of Review awards dinner in New York City, Eastwood stated that “he would kill” the liberal filmmaker Michael Moore if ever Moore showed up at his home with a camera.

    “At Waco, was there really an urgency to get those people out of the compound at that particular time? Was the press going to make it look heroic for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms? At Ruby Ridge, there was one guy in a cabin at the top of the mountain. Was it necessary for federal agents to go up there and shoot a 14-year-old in the back and shoot a woman with a child in her arms? What kind of mentality does that?”

    When he was asked: “How would you characterize yourself politically?” Eastwood answered, “Libertarian – Everyone leaves everyone else alone.” – LibertarianRock.com

    But wait, there's more...


    Right Truth: Clint Eastwood speaks on political correctness...


    I think that this shows how badly the Republican Party under Romney has lost its way. They see the saving of an American Icon (Chrysler) as a horrible thing, and saving of Union Jobs before paying off investors to be the worst thing ever.

    I say we dump Romney and run Clint.

    Rule #1:
    Anyone who does not agree with Rove is a liberal.

    Eastwood plays their game to enrich himself.

    However, I think he was unaware that he was being used in this ad. He didn't check into what was behind it.

    Do I think he was plugging for Obama?

    No.

    There are actors who are just airheaded enough to be able to make the claim, "I had no idea what that was about."

    Clint isn't one of them. Clint has been in command of his career and his roles for a long time now. And it isn't lke the guy is hard up for money.

    I personally liked the commercial. America's industries are coming back.

    If this looks bad for the GOP, it's becuase they are running an asshole who made himself rich destroying good paying jobs while Obama made an effort to save them.

    Shame on them.

    He seems like Politics doesn't way too much into how he lives his life. I'm proud to say the same. Gran Torino was an anti-racist, anti division film. Eastwood wrote it.It's also about how ignorang and useless inner-City violent crime is.

    Gran Torino was a great film on so many levels.

    It exposed the truth that the PC lefty liberals hate and won't face. :cool:

    It was a great film. Clint is one of the few actors who has consistently played in great films. As far as the Commercial. It will be forgotton come November.
