KEYSTONE COPS and KEYSTONE SILENT FILM
Maddow dissects Romney campaign ineptitdue on Eastwood. If you think a candidate for president should surround himself with competent people, you are correct. That campaign staff is often the hatching ground for people who will join the president in the White House. Karl Rove joined George W. Bush; intriguing and maybe insightful as to how the Bush years would unfold. Obama took key campaign staff into the White House. David Axelrod was a key Obama adviser and I have posited since the day of the announcement of Axelrod as Senior Adviser to the president. President Obama has accomplished much since taking office. His early years in the White House included far more 'turn the other cheek', and gentlemanly effort to work with people how openly declared social and political resistance. While the President is his own man, I do wonder after 2 plus years why Axelrod left the job to join the future campaign efforts of the incumbent president. Once, gone President Obama seemed to turn into a very different leader; a leader we had hoped to see in the beginning. Enough said about that.
Let's take a look at Mitt Romney's potential hatch-lings. Rachel Maddow explores the comical ineptitude and decision-making that ended with Clint Eastwood making a complete fool of himself on international television. A younger and more alert Eastwood might have turned down the opportunity to speak in the manner that came before the cameras.
The following video represents a very thorough analysis of the seriousness of last Thursday night. His comments also address the seriousness of a lack of competence on the Romney advisers corps. Last Thursday was not the first major campaign blunder for the Romney team. It certainly is the most visible blunder and could be the most costly over the next few weeks.
Yes, one of those men gave the go ahead to place the chair next to the Eastwood podium. One maybe more of those men agreed to allow the 82 year old Eastwood on a national stage without preview of his script. Now, that is action Eastwood would never allow an actor on his movie set.
