        ThinkProgress Live Blogs The Republican National Convention

        ——————————————

        10:14: Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) opens with a comment on Eastwood’s bizarre performance: “I think I just drank Clint Eastwood’s water.”

        10:11: Eastwood to GOP Convention: “we own this country.”

        10:10: “I never thought attorneys should be president,” Eastwood says. Romney has a dual law and business degree from Harvard.

        10:08: Eastwood just mocked Obama for supporting the war in Afghanistan after 9/11 — seven years before he became president — noting that he didn’t ask Russia how their effort had gone there.

        10:03: Eastwood is pretending to talk to Obama, criticizing him for the war in Afghanistan, and jokes, “Biden is the intellect of the Democratic party. Basically a grin with a body behind it.”

        10:02: Eastwood agrees with the GOP on economic issues, but believes in global warming and has described his political evolution and support for equal marriage rights.

        10:01: Eastwood narrated a Super Bowl ad in February celebrating the success of the Detroit auto bailout –a move Romney opposed, suggesting that we should have “let Detroit go bankrupt“. Karl Rove denounced the ad as “offensive.”

        10:00: Clint Eastwood opens the network’s primetime coverage.

    This clint Eastwood speech was WEIRD. And I’m being very, very, generous here. Rachel Maddow was virtually speechless. The rest of the MSNBC panel said absolutely nothing. Here is a tweet from David Axelrod.

You’ll find out the details very soon, because unless the MSM doesn’t get a gag order on his speech, that’s all they will be talking about.

    Rubio just spoke of people in the past never being able to succeed without wealth (and the GOP wants it different??) – he also gave government (not god and faith) kudos for allowing everyone to get ahead – they can’t help supporting democrat ideals – and the crowd don’t quite get it). He hasn’t mentioned Mitt yet – that I have heard.

    Just had a call from a friend who said that Clint Eastwood has been saying the most distasteful things about President Obama. Is this true?

    I could not bear to hear this kind of thing again:

    Pat Boone saying the White House needs to be fumigated after the OBAMAS moved in…

    Dean Koontz in a recent “Odd” novel displaying his hatred of Obama through one of his characters…

    Michael Moore telling people to start practicing saying President Romney. No matter his reasoning, it is a self-defeating destructive statement.
    He just as well be a republican.

    Jon Voight…barf inducing.

    Ted Nugent…despicable.

    Paul Ryan… A Christ-less Catholic

    Mitt Romnet,,,,A Christ-less Morman

    And on, and on, and on…

    If it weren’t for TOD, I would lose any hope for racial harmony. Thanks, Chips and everybody here at TOD for being simply family. You will never know how much this means to me, a 65 year old African-American from the deep south.

    • August 30, 2012 at 10:39 pm

      I got home from canvasing and turned on the t.v. just in time to see Rubio. Very dramatic and almost made me cry, except none of it made sense. First I heard him going at President Obama with a nasty sneer on his face, and then he started plunking heart strings. It cracked me up when he spoke in Spanish and the old people started clapping because “wow,Look that boy is speaking a foreign language, isn’t he smart!” They had no idea what he was saying. Now Robme is on. I think I might puke. “I like they way his children’s faces light up when he walks in the room.” “The way he loves his mother.” Puke, Puke puke.

I said today that Clint had a reality show for his current wife and kids…..I detest reality shows. For me, that was a sign of Clint Not as Eastwood most of Us had imagined. I was right. Mr. Eastwood looked pathetic and lost. That was a shame for whomever put him out there on some meds, wine or just old age. But they wanted to show case Clint with the strong image people had of him and NOW, they failed woefully,

That signaled to me that something had changed. But jeez, now I see. He’s gone fricking off the deep end. Sad for him. What a way to end a career.

      As for Romney, let’s see, invoking the very non-partisan Neil Armstrong, already throwing his religion aside saying what sports team was more important, and claiming that it was the big bad Americans that got us to the moon. Hate to tell you, Mitt, but we got to the goddamn moon with the help of many ex-pat Germans like Werner von Braun. Geez! Turning off That 50s Show and donating to OFA.

    Mitt Romney took a chance on Clint Eastwood, but the only person whose day was made was Barack Obama’s.

    As the national broadcast networks broke into local coverage to cover Mitt Romney’s acceptance speech, millions of Americans around the world were treated to a suggestive, rambling 10-minute monologue by the aging American icon that played squarely to the conservative base. At a moment when Romney was trying to transcend the party he has now become the standard-bearer of and rise to look presidential, Eastwood’s appearance appears to be folly.

    A powerful, 10-minute biographical video, chronicling Romney’s life from birth to today never made national air, and was confined to cable news.

    …. Eastwood’s routine was one part failed comedy, one part red meat, and through-and-through a missed opportunity to reach out to swing voters.

    Marco Rubio’s speech following, and the video preceding Eastwood, represent the convention Mitt Romney has tried to run — respectful and mindful of what average Americans want to hear. Eastwood’s speech was just the opposite.

She said, I never vote.I don’t have time to look stuff up, and I don’t feel right voting if I don’t know anything. I proceeded to explain why I was there, and my support for the ACA. We shared back and forth, and she decided to register. She was going to register as an unafiliated. Her husband butted in and said, don’t, you won’t be able to vote in the primary. She was confused and said is that the Presidential election, I said no, that is the general. Her husband said, register as a republican. I said if she changed it she would have to cross it out and initial it. She did, and then told her husband, I am registering as a Democrat! One vote at a time!!!

    Senate Republicans: Filibuster everything to win in November?

    ——————————-

    WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans are using the filibuster to limit and often derail Democrats’ initiatives, paralyzing the Senate and making it nearly impossible to accomplish even the most routine matters.
    .
    .
    Since Barack Obama became president nearly 13 months ago, Republicans have made it clear that 60 votes — the number needed to cut off debate in the 100-member Senate — are required to pass not only major Democratic programs, but also many routine proposals. (Democrats controlled 60 Senate seats from July until last week, when Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., was sworn in.)

    “Republicans have ratcheted use of the filibuster up to completely unheard of levels. Look at the things that the House (of Representatives) has passed that can’t make it through the Senate. The list just keeps growing,” said Norman Ornstein, an expert on Congress at the American Enterprise Institute, a center-right policy organization.

      I have been on twitter and it’s up to 20,000 followers now. It’s too funny. One person said, ‘I’m freaking out! Invisible Obama is sitting on the couch next to me!” Another, “Invisible Obama is signing Mitt’s speech behind him.”

      I tried to listen to Mitt and he’s on in the background, but my goodness the twitter machine has me ROTFLMAO!

      btw, just listening to the audience, Mitt’s not getting the love. Every single other keynote speaker got a bigger response. Ok gotta go, be back later. Time for more yuk yuks.

      If you go down to the comments, you’ll see a that the RWNJs are trying to say that Clint hit it out of the park. Huh?

    okay so I ran outta tweets – I guess I’m in twitter jail? anyhoo, listening to this massive ego called Romney… talking to a bunch a yahoos who we KNOW didn’t vote for Barack Obama pretending they’re disappointed in the President.. the glow has worn off. What a lying manipulative pos. And the name Michelle Obama should not come out of his mouth. Gawd he’s a nasty bit of humanity.

    He really is lying as bad as his vp choice.. just total crap leaping from one topic to another… he’s really all over the place. Folks if we don’t reelect POTUS, this country will not survive this man. He says he has a plan to create 12 million new jobs.. methinks he’ll be deporting a whole lotta folks, which will leave some jobs available. oh also he has a plan to make us completely energy independent.. that would be attacking and taking over Iran – my guess. oh and VOUCHERS for school… good old seperate and unequal- the repub dream.

    Romney, at Harvard, Merged Two Worlds

    —————————-

    One of the most exclusive clubs in academe is a Harvard University dual-degree program allowing graduate students to attend its law and business schools simultaneously, cramming five years of education into four. On average, about 12 people per year have completed the program — the overachievers of the overachievers — including a striking number of big names in finance, industry, law and government.

    The program is so small that it has drawn little attention outside rarefied circles, but that may change as its most famous graduate, Mitt Romney, campaigns for the White House, subjecting every phase of his life to scrutiny.

    When Harvard started its so-called J.D.-M.B.A. program in 1969, there were just a handful like it. Others have cropped up since, but Harvard’s has what may be the most successful alumni roster, particularly in finance.

    In addition to Mr. Romney, founder of Bain Capital, the roughly 500 graduates include Bruce Wasserstein, who led the investment bank Lazard until he died in 2009; leaders of multibillion-dollar hedge fund and private equity firms like Canyon Capital Advisors, Silver Lake Partners and Crestview Partners; high-ranking executives at banks like Citigroup and Credit Suisse; C. James Koch, founder of the Boston Beer Company; and Theodore V. Wells Jr., one of the nation’s top trial lawyers.

    Hey, Clint – Crazy old white fool look is none too appealing, even if you’re there to plug your latest movie. Had ya muted, but – even still – your old codgerness made my day! I can only guess you were talking to the chair. Did the chair talk back?

    Hey, Marco – No, “American exceptionalism” is what’s spelled out at the Statue of Liberty. Now, I realize your parents may not have come into the country via The Big Apple, before or after Castro, so you can find Emma’s poem on Wiki and maybe you’ll learn somethin’. Not sure what you said, because I only listened to the point where you dared speak our President’s name out loud.

    Hey, Lyin’ Ryan – The five o’clock shadow on top of the widow’s peak is not a good look for ya. Not now, not ever.

    Wives of Willard and Lyin’ Ryan – There is NO JOY in your eyes.

    White people at the convention – After tonight, perhaps slithering back under your rocks might be a good idea.

    Hey, Willard – I’m a white woman, your age, and – just so you know – I would never have dated you. Oh, and, the pasty white guy look with the pink eye shadow does not work on the teevee. Never noticed before that you bare your teeth when you speak, since you basically have no upper lip. How unattractive. Flag pin? Looks upside down to me – isn’t that a sign of distress? Teleprompter – oh no you wouldn’t. Not sure what you said, but the perp walk you did coming into the hall with the infamous Charlie Chaplin gait made me want to lose my dinner. What a fool you are. Could you hurry up the lies? For a change, I’d like to hear the reviews. Even your Secret Service people look bored.

    Oh, look, Willard’s still speaking. Lip reading the “crowd,” it appears they are chanting USA. Wonder if they will still be chanting that in November, when President Obama is re-elected? I know I will.
