Clint Eastwood Returns in Ad for Romney: VIDEO

Eastwood

The GOP SuperPAC American Crossroads has enlisted Clint Eastwood to stump for Romney in a new ad, but this time there's no empty chair, and no 'ad-libbing'.

Says Eastwood in the ad: “Obama’s second term would be a rerun of the first, and our country just couldn’t survive that. We need someone who could turn it around fast, and that man is Mitt Romney. There’s not much time left, and the future of our country is at stake.”

The NYT reports:

After some testing, Crossroads found that potential audiences, who are often wary of celebrity endorsements, still appreciated Mr. Eastwood as an American icon and liked the idea of his appearance in the ad as long as it did not seem overdone. So while Mr. Eastwood narrates the entire ad, he appears on camera only at the very end.

Mr. Eastwood, in an e-mailed statement, explained his motives. “I did the ad because I’m concerned for our country,” he said. “I really believe Mitt Romney is the kind of leader we need right now. He’s an experienced businessman, and he knows how to work with people to fix problems. It’s time to give someone else a chance to fix our country.”

The ad will run in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, Ohio and Virginia.

Man 'Lynches' Empty Chair Representing Obama

ObamChairLynchWow. An Austin, Texas man managed to merge Clint Eastwood's recent "chair as Obama" skit with one of the nation's sickest racist traditions, lynching, by tying an empty chair to a tree in his front yard.

When a fellow citizen expressed her concern over his method of protest, the man, Bud Johnson, reportedly yelled, "I don't really give a damn whether it disturbs you or not… You can take [your concerns] and go straight to hell and take Obama with you. I don't give a sh*t. If you don't like it, don't come down my street."

The website Burnt Orange, which first drew attention to this display of anti-Obama rhetoric, explains how the transitive property of violent hate works here. You know, just in case the meaning is lost:

One could easily argue "it's just a chair, what's the big deal? That's not racist!"

However, in light of Clint Eastwood's speech at the Republican National Convention, in which he had a largely one-sided conversation with an empty chair he pretended was Barack Obama, this imagery is now associated with the President.

The image of the chair is associated with the President. Now, lynch that chair from a tree, and you've got a pretty awful racist sentiment calling for lynching the first African-American President!


Clint Eastwood Tells Ellen Gays Should Have Freedom to Marry: VIDEO

Eastwood_ellen

Clinton Eastwood repeated his 2011 assertion that "I don’t give a f**k about who wants to get married to anybody else!" in a conversation with Ellen DeGeneres today, though in less colorful terms.

"Leave everybody alone," says Eastwood.

The actor did not repeat his recent remarks (at least in this clip) that Obama "is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people." Would have loved for her to ask about that.

Clint Eastwood Speaks Out, Calls Obama 'The Greatest Hoax Ever Perpetrated on the American People'

Eastwood

Clint Eastwood is speaking out in his first interview since his disastrous RNC speech in which he spoke to an empty chair.

Said Eastwood to the Carmel Pine Cone: “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people. 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.”

Eastwood, who supports marriage equality, is pro-choice, and disagrees with Obama mostly on economic issues,  says he only decided 15 minutes before his speech to use the chair:

“There was a stool there, and some fella kept asking me if I wanted to sit down. When I saw the stool sitting there, it gave me the idea. I’ll just put the stool out there and I’ll talk to Mr. Obama and ask him why he didn’t keep all of the promises he made to everybody.”

Eastwood said he wasn't vetted because he didn't know what he was going to say: “It was supposed to be a contrast with all the scripted speeches, because I’m Joe Citizen. I’m a movie maker, but I have the same feelings as the average guy out there.”
