I'm not one of those crazy leftist celebrity bloggers who is going to call Clint Eastwood senile or crazy for his RNC speech. It made complete sense and no matter what side of the aisle you are on, Clint was hilarious and made a compelling case for America's future.
Hardman actor/director Clint Eastwood is now starring in a new pro-Mitt Romney advertisement.
It's a powerful ad and I can't help but think of Clint Eastwood as America's grandfather. Hard, tough, knowledgeable, funny, and patriotic. Eastwood represents a generation of America that understands where America is heading because he has lived and seen it all. We, as young people, too often are arrogant, we need to pay attention to what our elders say because experienced advice has no agenda. Clint has seen war, he has seen many presidents come and go and has a good understanding of why.
Eastwood isn't senile, he isn't perfect, he isn't racist, he isn't always right...but he has a careful understanding of what the 100 percent of America needs. He's the grandfather who yells at us for following instead of leading, he's the grandfather who tells us the hard truth when we get caught up in an exciting lie, he's the grandfather who tells us not to buy that car we can't afford, he's the grandfather who tells us the real world isn't fair and no one can make it so, he's the grandfather who tells us to put our faith in God and stand for the family values we grew up with because they are righteous.
"In the last few years, America's been knocked down. Twenty-three million people can't find full-time work, and we borrow $4 billion every single day, much of it from China. If someone doesn't get the job done, you have to hold them accountable. Obama's second term would be a rerun of the first and our country just couldn't survive that."
"There's not much time left - the future of our country is at stake."
The ad will run in Colorado, Iowa, Florida, Nevada, New Hampshire, Virginia, and Ohio. All these states are swing states in the election. The ad premiered today.
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."
