    Thank you Clint Eastwood, you "spent 12 minutes on the most important night of Mitt Romney’s life" and that's all people are talking about and will be talking about. Indeed, you seriously upstaged Romney. Good job old man.

    Keep dreaming. Clint was hilarious and spot on. Romney was the one that approved it anyways.. Then Romney came out and knocked it outta the park.

    See you in November, bro.

    In all seriousness, that bit was weird.

    It made Scott Walker cringe.

    I believe it's called 'comedy relief'. :lol:

    Anyway, Romney's message, thanks to Eastwood, was mired somewhere in there... it was diluted and weakened ,reduced, castrated, gelded, abbreviated. Big distraction comes to mind.

    Clint got under the incumbent's skin.

    A good 12 minutes worth of effort paid off huge dividends.

    Meanwhile nobody is talking about Romney or what he said. That may actually help the Governor.

    Shock of Shocks; Clint has a movie coming out later this month. Who'd a thunk it.

    In actuality, the polls seem to indicate that Romney got his bump.

    His speech may not have been over the top brilliant/memorable oratory, but it was pretty good and well delivered.

    Clint got people talking and the focus of attention -- even from the incredibly thin-skinned incumbent -- has been on the GOP.

    I do realize that not one of the main stream media apologists will ask ANY tough questions about the "substance" of the Dim convention. But it will be evident all the same. The incumbent is NOT going to talk -- at least not honestly -- about his actual record.
