Eastwood Without Writers, Proper RNC Management and An Inept Romney Campaign Team

Making up for the GM Superbowl Commercial Clint?  The RNC did not "MAKE YOUR DAY"!

The International movie icon and Oscar Award Winning Director Clint Eastwood blessed the RNC Convention stage last evening.  As he indicated, there are hundreds maybe thousands of celebrities who are conservative who keep their political to themselves.  Eastwood should have done same.

The eleven plus minutes below are seriously painful for those who remember Eastwood as a vibrant and coherent personality, albeit a quite personality.  The eleven plus minutes include snippets of seconds of humor worthy of note, but those moments are engulfed and incinerated by the pure misguided horror of the appearance. If you did not see the appearance and by chance live in a vacuum and have not caught a re-run, have a look and listen below.  You should keep in mind the appearance is unscripted. The Romney campaign immediately disavowed the appearance with minutes of Eastwood leaving the stage. Of much more importance, how respectful is it to speak of a President of the United States as an empty chair? How out of sync with reality is it to role play and obscenity speaking president and open who would utter shut-up?  President Obama has done nothing to deserve such a low class and crass characterization? Well, maybe Obama has done something to warrant such disrespect. He dares serve as the nation's first African-American President.

The New GOP Talking Point: "Stole" (Medicare)



Is the word "stole" another strategy from the GOP bag of political tricks?   The following is  a 20 second video of the current RNC Chair. And, you and I thought Michael Steele was beyond ridiculous and over-the-top. An example of Steel and over-the-top... Do you remember Steel sitting on an MSNBC News show with Pat Buchanan to his right?  Steele  spoke of a ridiculous and factual incorrect false characterization that just abbot induced sickness sickness in Buchanan.  The then RNC Chair stated to the show host that the wearing of harts "caps" was done  one way in his part of the country but in the North East the "hat" was worn backwards.  Michael Steele is at least 60 years of age; surely he has grown past wearing a baseball cap backwards. I considered the specific MSNBC segment the interchange "GOP out-of-touch" and Micheal Steele buffoonery.  

Steele failed as RNC Chair based on the false strategy associated with his election to the position: work towards the black vote and offset the impact of the black president.   The Party nominated Sarah Palin to capture disgruntled Hillary Clinton supporters and the party elected Steele for very obvious reason. Despite his mistaken impression of his selection (tee-toddle to  African-American voters) and associated buffoonery, in addition to his marked accommodating leaders, his mission was not accomplished.  Of course, his mission was doomed from the start, as the GOP will never appeal to Americans on a basis of diversity. The very thought of a GOP appealing to ethnically diverse voters is an oxymoron. Steele was also an administrative failure, but he was not a hardcore GOP operative replete with all symptoms of what I call, "GOPISM Circa 2000 and Beyond".  

Steele was not a gutter dwelling, sniveling talking-points machine.  If you will take a moment to view the quick video, you will see the  archetypal "GOPISM Circa 2000 and Beyond" RNC Chair.  Reince Preibus is referring to Medicare, as he spews venom. The venom is easily disputed, thus ultimately ineffective in delivering a death blow to his intended victim. The GOP does not seem to understand that there is life well beyond their base. Some are actually getting current event updates and news from media other than Fox News, and the increasingly strongly leaning Right, CNN.
