Thread 4: The Main Event
— Ace

Get it on.

For Clint (?), Rubio, & Romney.

Either Clint's late, or Clint's not coming and they're killing time, or, possibly, they've decided they want Clint on national tv at 10 and will let Romney run well past 11, and will dare the networks to cut away.

Option 3. They decided to dare the networks.

15 It's been more than thirty years since the wolf and the winter cold. And now, as then, it is not fear that grips him, only restlessness. A heightened sense of things. The seaborn breeze, coolly, kissing the sweat at his chest and neck. Gulls cawing, complaining, even as they feast on the thousands of floating dead. The steady breathing of the 300 at his back, ready to die for him without a moment's pause. Everyone of them ready, to die.

1. He wouldn't have paid attention to them anyway.  Hell, for all we know, they put something entirely different on the teleprompter and Clint just decided "fuck it..."

2. If you're going to show up and shill for a politician (and Eastwood has enough experience not to be starry-eyed here) and keep your self-respect and not wind up looking like a fool in a few years when they inevitably let you down, that's how you do it.  Anybody calling this embarrassing has it completely backwards--that was how you keep your dignity.

531 Clint's delivery with the empty chair seemed awkward to you, imagine Obama there talking, and talking, and talking... as Clint tries to say something, talking, talking...
That's why he was hesitating and pausing and trailing off. He was acting out what it would be like. If you dubbed in Obama dialog it would work beautifully.

Posted by: Christopher Taylor at August 30, 2012 05:29 PM (r4wIV)

532 Glenn Beck and Stu and Pat often comment on how sorry they feel for Obama personally. An absent, drunk bigamist commie father. A mother more interested in her own happiness than raising her son. Commie grandparents. Lolo actually seemed like a decent guy, and because of that, Stanley had to send Barack away from him. Mentored by a commie. Spent all his life wanting to be accepted as a proper Marxist. No real love, no real relationships. He can't talk about his life the same way these men and women can, because his life was so weird, alien, and tragic.

He's still a SCOAMT, though.

My read as well.  He was hustling the crowd "a bit" with the stammer but he was speaking to the tag end of the Korea era guys who were hammered during Truman and Ike's force integration that "we owe it to these men to let them grow" that Barack has had every opportunity and it is okay to fire him like you would anyone.  He ain't Josey Wales, but he scored a hit.

Talking about how we can't go back to the failed policies of the past with the most infamously failed president of the 20th century and telling us we can't go back to the economy of the last Democrat anyone really liked.

977 "Okay, 10% too much personal life."
Maybe but you have to understand that for 90% of America, Romney is a name and that guy who ran Bain that fired everyone. They know nothing about the guy or what he's done, who he is or what he's like. This is is chance to open up his heart and show them the gooey bits inside. So yeah its probably a bit much and likely a bit staged and dramatic, but effective to do the job.
Like I said a month ago or so, stage one is getting people to admit that Obama maybe isn't such a nice guy after all and make it okay to criticize him.
Stage two is getting people to know who Romney is and learn he's someone you can like and trust. Its not enough to make people not want Obama in office, they have to want the next guy in his place.
This campaign chills me with how carefully crafted it is, down to almost supernatural precision, like grinding a lens for an observatory. Tolerances within a millionth of an inch. Its so clinically exact, it almost feels like a machine than a human effort.
That's fine when it works for your side but I fear for the future of politics.

Indeed, and that's what this is all about. To introduce the man and get people to realize he's not the evil job murdering machine he's been played up as.
And with that fat bankroll he's been sitting on for months, he can bring that message to everyone in a big hurry.

After hearing this speech, I'm not saying Romney doesn't like Obama, but it sure sounds like he doesn't agree at all with what Obama stands for. Many think the two men are more alike than different as far as being "big government" and only separated by political parties. Maybe not.

Let 'em all drown in their subways. Manhattan went 85% for Obama in 2008. If every last Manhattanite (sorry, Mr. ace!) disappeared from the face of the earth tomorrow, that would be a half million of Obama voters eliminated at a cost of 80k normal people.

That was hysterical ... defending the "rising of the seas" .... but the retards at MSNBC still skipped over the idiocy of Barky claiming that he would single-handedly stop the seas and that MSNBC and all the useless America-hating idiots bought it.

1555 I'm watching MSNBC to see if my prediction was right, and so far it isn't.  Chris hasn't spoke about it yet, but the senile angle seems to be their play so far.

The thing here is that they mock and mock with smug self righteousness. Hayes thought it ludicrous that people applauded the line about the seas receding, because people are doing studies about mass transit if such a doomsday scenario comes to pass, completely oblivious to the fact there is a more urgent doomsday scenario staring us right in the face.

These are the guys wearing their high school letter jacket at their alma mater's game, but they're now in their 20's, and people are surprised they would still waste their time with this.  It's just about over, but they don't know it, and it's pathetic.

What about pride in Americans saving Europe in WW1.
What about pride in Americans saving Europe in fascist Europe circa 1940.
What about pride in Americans saving S. Korea? or fighting for freedom in Vietnam? In Afghanistan against the Soviets and in S. America against the Communists?

What about leading the world in technology, from Silicon Valley to the Biotech & Pharmaceutical Industry? About being proud of planting a flag on the moon, down to mapping the human genome?

Fuck that fat, redheaded genetic mistake.

Still...?  How long before you leftovers catch on?  Romney IS conservative.  I've known this for years (I still have my Mitt '08 bumper sticker).  He is not just politalking - he cares about his grand kids and does not want them growing up in a screwed up America.
