The Carmel Pine Cone's first story of the week AFTER A week as topic No. 1 in American politics, former Carmel Mayor Clint Eastwood said the outpouring of criticism from left-wing reporters and liberal politicians after his appearance at the Republican National Convention last Thursday night, followed by an avalanche of support on Twitter and in the blogosphere, is all the proof anybody needs that his 12-minute discourse achieved exactly what he intended it to. [I]“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] Who cant love this guy............singlehandedly comes up with what will end up being the enduring legacy of the 2012 convention season and 2012 election: the empty chair. All the talk, talk, talk about fantasyland the past three days, trumped by a simple prop......... The political center gets it..........its all about the economy stupids!!!!!
