It appears liberals are none too pleased to have a Hollywood icon openly break ranks with other Hollywood elite and publicly embrace and endorse the campaign of Mitt Romney for president.
Here is just a taste of what the Huffington Post had to say today regarding the possibility of Eastwood speaking at tonights GOP convention:
Play Ditzy for Me: The Hypocrisy and Deceit of Clint Eastwood’s Romney Endorsement
Eastwood’s announcement earlier this summer that he was endorsing Mitt Romney during a $2 million fundraiser at his vacation home in trendy Sun Valley, Idaho–where the likes of “Dirty Harry” Callahan would never be caught–was more than a bit self-serving and revealed that, perhaps at 82, Eastwood is little a out of touch with the wage-earning and beer-guzzling audiences that once gobbled up his cinematic fare.
Dare I proffer that Squirrely Squint–with his estimated net worth of $375 million–has become a one-percenter?
…If Eastwood is, indeed, the “mystery man” tonight, there will be no mystery in his remarks. They will be riddled with further hypocrisy and deceit. That you can count on. “A good man,” declares Dirty Harry in Magnum Force, “always knows his limitations.” Apparently, his creator does not. LINK
Ah, so the fact that Clint Eastwood, a self made Hollywood icon, is very rich discredits him from voicing support for a political candidate. Really? It is that very premise by Big Government liberals in America that now has the tide shifting toward the Romney/Ryan ticket and away from the tired class warfare politics of Obama/Biden.
And note the jab at Clint’s age – as if being 82 also discredits Eastwood from knowing anything about America and what kind of politics are needed at this time to save her. As they do so often in confronting conservatives, the Huffington Post goes back to their oft-used rhetoric of ridicule and division. Old people need to just shut up and vote Democrat – right?
I am quite certain that even at 82 Clint Eastwood could easily kick most of the columnists for the Huffington Post off his lawn without breaking a sweat. Liberalism has always been wimpy, while the hard won rewards of Eastwood’s brand of individualism have been and will always be….COOL.
