    Here's the story you linked...Show us exactly where Clint said that.


    Clint Eastwood, reacting to criticism of his speech at the Republican convention, suggested whoever invited him to speak may have been "dumb."

    In an interview with the syndicated TV show "Extra," airing Tuesday, the star of the new movie "Trouble with the Curve," said he had no regrets about the controversial appearance in August, in which he spoke to an empty chair and told his audience he was speaking to President Barack Obama.

    Republican nominee Mitt Romney's campaign praised Eastwood's presentation, but it was widely panned as well.

    "People loved it or hated it, and that's fine," Eastwood in the "Extra" interview. "I figure if somebody's dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they're gonna have to take what they get."

    Eastwood, 82, said the technique is reminiscent of one-sided conversations Shelley Berman and Bob Newhart often used in their standup comedy. He said he used the idea once while speaking at the funeral of a friend, "and I started talking to mythical people imitating him."

    Asked if he would do the same convention speech again, given the chance, Eastwood said: "I never look backward. It's done and it's done. I probably would, I wouldn't be afraid of it."

    Thanks Quantrill. A whole lot of these lefties are desparate and will throw anything up against the wall, and this is just one obvious example.

    Mitt might sound like Bush on steroids but Obama's polices ARE Bush policies on steroids... Sadly you knew that but have no intention of holding Obama accountable as you’re a hyper partisan troll.

    What would right wingers do without photo shop to use to make up visual lies?

    I do wonder though what many Marines think about Romney placing them in the 47%.

    The Eastwood vesus Empty Chair fiasco will find a special place in the Annals of Dumb Political Moves.

    I really don't know who Mitt's campaign advisors are, but he's clearly overpaying them.

    Mitt is certainly overpaying his advisors. And inviting Clint to the convention has backfired pretty badly. The poor old man seemed hugely confused about everything. At least he seems right that Romney's dumb...
