Jon Stewart Basks In The Glory Of Clint Eastwoods Awesome Speech While Tearing Apart Romneys Jon Stewart opened The Daily Shows final night in Tampa by basking in the awesome and hilarious speech Clint Eastwood gave at the Republican National Convention, which consisted of the Oscar-winning actor yelling at a chair for ten minutes. But while Stewart was awe-struck over Eastwoods speech, he was not so kind to Mitt Romneys acceptance speech, bashing it as being a whitewash of American history. Stewart admitted he was dispirited by being in Tampa all week, but at the last second, Eastwood saved him with a fist full of awesome. He gleefully expressed his amazement that Eastwood spent twelve minutes on the most important night of Mitt Romneys life yelling at a chair, describing the speech as the most amazing old-man moment hes seen since Dick Cheney non-fatally shot one in the face. Stewart told the Tampa crowd that in New York City, its not uncommon to see old men yelling at inanimate objects, but generally it does not happen on stage at political conventions. Of course, the highlight of last night was supposed to be Romneys acceptance speech, but Stewart noted that no matter what Romney had said, there was no way he could have outshined Eastwood. However, Stewart did slam Romneys speech as being too idealistic about Americas recent history, and noticed it was part of a recurring trend at the convention that America could be great once again if it were not for President Obama and his policies. But what set off Stewart the most was Romneys comment last night that he wanted Obama to succeed from the very beginning. Stewart rebutted Romney by running clips of conservatives saying, less than six months after Obama was inaugurated, that he was already a failure. And most damning of all, Stewart ran a clip of Romney himself, eight days after Obama was inaugurated, saying that he partially agree with Rush Limbaugh saying that he hopes Obama fails. *snip* Video at the link.
